It may seem a bit fanatic to some, especially to those who have not read or watched the Outlander series. We even surprise ourselves at the numerous times we would drop everything – leaving our family and, at times, our careers – just to experience Outlander. As I write this blog today, I think about those other freakishly, and I mean freakishly, crazy fans, like Trekkies or Star Wars geeks, who endlessly live their lives day in and day out with Star Trek or Star Wars on their minds, and I mean all the time!
When I think about my love for Outlander, I put myself in a whole different category. I. Am. Not. Like. Them. I mean, my adoration of Outlander is really a love for the books by Diana Gabaldon – that’s where it stems. For that very reason, it doesn’t make me crazy. I just enjoy a really good story.
What? Star Wars was a novel series too?
Or maybe because most of the Outlander fans I’ve encountered are “mature” adults, and that makes us different than the rest. It’s not like I go to every single Outlander gathering, so long as it doesn’t divert me from family commitments. You know what I mean? Or that I purchase dolls like Luke Skywalker action figures or a Mr. Spock outfit.
Oh, wait, does purchasing plaid or tartan skirts count? Or how about getting a pocket Jamie and acquiring pocket people? Okay, so maybe, just MAYBE I am a bit extreme, but I wouldn’t consider myself a crazed lunatic!
Here, you be the judge of that.
I don’t dress up like this…
Well, alright – but this was a party.
What can I say, it’s a cute look!
Do I have a poster hanging in my home like this? Nope.
Umm, fine! I have these Outlander posters.
Look. Grown adults own these action figures and display them. Who does that?!
Er, these aren’t the same because these are super duper adorable!
Ooops, I forgot about these….. still, not the same!
Do I really need an autographed photo of the characters? See… too fanatic, don’t you think?
Oooohhh, that’s when I met Cesar Domboy in North Carolina. Fergus is such a cutie – I just had to.
Plus, do I take the time to collect and organize trading cards? That’s a bit too much!
Wait, my Season 1 Outlander cards are just something fun, really! I only purchased them because the cards reminded me of the various passages in the books.
Nowadays, who purchases DVDs or Blu-ray discs when shows and movies can be streamed? I really don’t need to purchase any – they’re not necessary!
…I have a reason for these… one was a special edition, which means they are unique. Again, completely different!
As you can see, my admiration for Outlander is nowhere near or even in the same category. I would say it’s pretty normal, wouldn’t you?!
