Sass3nach’s Appreciation for Sam Heughan’s Portrayal of Jamie Fraser

Temptation not only for him, but for me.  For him, the chance to be what he was made for by nature, what fate had denied him.  He was born and bred to this: the stewardship of a large estate, the care of the people on it, a place of respect among men of substance, his peers. More importantly, the restoration of clan and family.

Drums of Autumn by Diana Gabaldon, Chapter 13

Jamie Fraser is one of the greatest literary characters. Diana Gabaldon has seamlessly created and developed him to be complete with a high sense of integrity, honor, ingenuity, and leadership that sets him apart from all the other characters.  Yet, he also shares the same hopes, fears and even mannerisms that can be subjectively related to each and every one of us.  This ability to present the character of Jamie Fraser with depth and human appeal is what allows us to clearly identify and feel as though there is a real personal connection to him.  For all of us, it feels like this bond has grown stronger with each book in the series and also from watching the award nominating performances of Sam Heughan, who portrays Jamie Fraser.

In this blog we wanted to send our sincere appreciation for all that Sam Heughan does on and behind the Outlander series.  From charitable endeavors to supporting social change, he has put his stardom to great use.  In addition, his portrayal of Jamie Frasier continues to capture his audience and take command of the screen.  To avid fans there is simply nothing better.  We know his relentless work ethic will lead him on a path of continued success and no one deserves it more.   Continue reading Sass3nach’s Appreciation for Sam Heughan’s Portrayal of Jamie Fraser

Favorite Moments Of 2016

As we close 2016, we decided to take a moment to appreciate the positive experiences this year has offered us.  As three professional women, with families, we balance work, busy schedules, and taking time to go out and experience all that the Outlander fandom has to offer.  We have loved our time going to Outlander events, as there is no better way to get through Droughtlander than being with others who have your same addiction.  Sharing our adventures in all things Outlander was our motivation to start this blog.  We have enjoyed having a place to talk about our love for the books, author, show, cast, and crew.   As we begin the festivities to celebrate the new year, we wanted to take time to reflect on our favorite memories of 2016.  Come take a look at some of our favorite moments!
