Newsflash: If a strong, independent female character falls in love, it does not automatically mean that she has lost her values or that she’s become less strong and independent, and does not necessarily change her story into an anti-feminist one. The idea that all women should fall in love and get married IS sexist, but a woman actually falling in love and getting married of her own free will is NOT sexist. Thank you and good day.
Or, as I said when I saw the picture: JAYSUS, Mary, and Joseph!

Dying. This poor boy.
Just finished the second episode and I refuse to OTP this! You hear me?! REFUSE!!
It’s unavoidable. Jamie will win your heart.
lazyexceptwhencooking - otping these two is the whole point of Outlander. lol
OTPing has been rude as hell to me lately. My shipper heart is so spent.
This canon is 20 years old, so you can open your heart to these two. That isn’t to say that they won’t break it from time to time, but…if ever there was a safe OTP, this is it.
Jamie Fraser/Sam Heughan - Outlander
The greatest shipper of all!!
murtagh is us
Give that man a drink for seeing it way back at Castle Leoch :D
Countdown to Sleepy Hollow Season Two
“There was another reason. The main one.”
“Reason?” I said stupidly.
“Why I married you.”
“Which was?” I don’t know what I expected him to say, perhaps some further revelation of his family’s contorted affairs. What he did say was more of a shock, in its way.
“Because I wanted you.” He turned from the window to face me. “More than I ever wanted anything in my life,” he added softly.
|Your tags on that "love will conquer all" outlander post are killing me, just so you know (ugh he loves her so much).|
Jamie does, oh fuck. That thought was just about killing me watching the last scene from yesterday’s episode (and watching the preview for next week’s episode as well) - Jamie is SO into Claire, in a way that barely fits inside of his chest. The man is twisted up in knots over this woman and can’t breathe a word of it, so he agrees to an arranged marriage and knowing he’ll have to win her over, piece by piece, without scaring her off.
Something that’s different for me between the series and the books is that I had less of a sense of how very, very badly Jamie wanted Claire until the second half of the book - I mean, I think you could easily tell Jamie liked her a great deal in the novel at this point, but since it’s filtered entirely through Claire’s POV (and she isn’t an objective narrator) it isn’t until later that you find out the sheer extent of that on his side.
In the series, we can see it - the way Jamie looks at her, the way he stares at her when she’s not looking, the way he looked when she untied his cravat in the surgery, hungry, like he could hardly breathe. I mean, fuuuuck. And then there’s him being so careful in his interactions with her - he flirts with her, he knows he’s flirting with her. He makes sure to explicitly point out that the two of them are friends. He tells her about his life, as openly as he can, more than he should.
Jamie was so nervous in this last episode, trying to talk to Claire about the upcoming wedding, trying to make himself agreeable and it easier for her. And there are all these thoughts jumbled up in Jamie’s head - how he knows she likes him as a friend but probably not much more than that, how he’s going to be able to kiss her soon, how he’s going to be able to do so much more than kissing, how much he wants her, how he’s about to do something with this woman that he’s never done before.
I can’t even imagine the combination of nerves and lust and choking want in that boy’s veins right now.
Yes to all of this. I’ve read a couple of posts here and elsewhere that claim to see no chemistry between Jamie and Claire. And while I feel seeing chemistry in a couple is mostly subjective, the thing is, you’re not supposed to see much (especially from her side right now), and only later is it revealed just how much and for how long Jamie has wanted her. Right now Claire is still trying to get back to a husband from 1945, and Jamie’s been containing his feelings, and yes, he knows he’ll have to win her over. So we’ll see glimpses of fireworks, but not full blown explosions up to now. To those who see no chemistry, maybe they’ll see it in upcoming episodes. Keep watching though. If the show continues to follow the books fairly closely, there will be seismic activity and volcanic eruptions. LOL
"Outlander" Season 1 Episode 7 will feature Jamie’s and Claire’s wedding, but it might not be the happiest event.
Outlander spoilers! So excited for Jamie and Claire’s wedding!
The article says Claire’s only known Jamie a few weeks. Not true. Up to this point in the show, she’s been with the Mackenzies for months. Randall states this as he questions her about her loyalties.
And lets not forget that this was also after Jack gave Jamie the ultimatum. This was Jamie terrified of what was to come, knowing he would probably die this time but choosing death over Jack.
This was an angry Jack. He offered Jamie his life in exchange for his body and Jamie refused. That’s what fueled that bloody scene for Jack. That was his motivation. Not his need for justice. That was not justice being served, but a scorned man seeking his revenge for his unrequited lust.
That was great, having a wig fitting, because it just changes your look completely and having like this long, beautiful, you know, sleek hair, from like a L’Oreal advert… I did a lot of hair swishing with it, I will admit — because I could.
