"Why, what’s the matter wi’ the poor child?" She demanded of Jamie. "Has she had an accident o’ some sort?"

"No, it’s only she’s married me," he said, "Though if ye care to call it an accident, ye may."

I love them. Then again I love the novels. A couple are vaguely yawn worthy but the overall is fabulous. The American Civil War bored me stiff and no that is not an ethnic comment, it really was boring as shit. Too busy being POC.

Yup.  The Revolutionary War stuff was awful.  I read the first four novels, devoured them one after the other.  But I could not get through The Fiery Cross.  I kept losing my place and re-reading things I’d already read.  It did not hold my attention. I think when I got to four pages of Claire setting a goat’s leg or (some crap I don’t even recall at the moment) I stopped there, and haven’t read any more in the series.  Still I love Jamie and Claire’s story, and so far the show is pretty good too.  Casting is pretty spot on.

"Because I wanted you." He turned from the window to face me. "More than I ever wanted anything in my life," he added softly. “When I ask my Da how ye know which was the right woman, he told me when the time came, I’d have no doubt. And I didn’t. When I woke in the dark under that tree on the road to Leoch, with you sitting on my chest, cursing me for bleeding to death, I said to myself, ‘Jamie Fraser, for all ye canna see what she looks like, and for all she weighs as much as a good draft horse, this is the woman.’”

(…)

"Ye know," he observed, letting go at last, "you’ve never said it."
"Neither have you."
"I have. The day after we came. I said I wanted you more than anything."
"And I said that loving and wanting weren’t necessarily the same thing," I countered.
He laughed. "Perhaps you’re right, Sassenach."
He smoothed the hair from my face and kissed my brow. "I wanted ye from the first time I saw ye, but I loved ye when you wept in my arms and let me comfort you, that first time at Leoch."

"He really opens up to her in such an honest way, but it’s without any self-pity. These are things that attract her to him. Here’s a person who’s endured so much pain but doesn’t seem to have that bitterness or poison. His soul and spirit doesn’t seem to be poisoned, and I think that’s something that really intrigues her. It makes him a different type of person who’s not hardened by what’s happened to him. The fact that he opened to her has as much to do with her demeanor, too. She has the quality that makes him trust her right away. The fact that he does trust her and opens up to her, that deepens their bond.” — Caitriona Balfe

Why shouldn’t I list all the reasons I love you?

Misha Collins’ Ice Bucket Challenge

"It’s not a contest about who has a higher tolerance for pain. However, if it were a contest, I would win."

I’m glad he mentions the fundraising for an important cause part.  My father passed away 12 years ago from ALS.  It was so hard to watch his body waste away before our eyes, while his mind was as sharp as ever. There was nothing we could do but make him comfortable toward the end.  He would have been 74 this summer.  I miss him every day.  I’m glad that awareness is raised with the challenge, but I worry some people think it’s just a game.  It’s life and death, and I pray one day there will indeed be a cure.  Thanks to anyone who has done the challenge and contributed to the ALS Foundation.


He looked out over the fields and buildings, the crofts and the roads, then looked down, a smile suddenly curving the wide mouth.
"And you, my Sassenach? What were you born for? To be a lady of a manor, or to sleep in the fields like a gypsy? To be a healer, or a don’s wife, or an outlaw’s lady?
"I was born for you," I said simply, and held out my arms to him.
