Outlander Coloring

Adult coloring books have been a recent trend these past few years.  Luckily for us, there is an Outlander Coloring Book and, of course, we had to buy it!  In our blog today, we will briefly share our time spent reviving this childhood recreation.

When one grows up, the time to sit and color seems to vanish.  We get busy with work, home, family, and so many other things! The adult coloring books, available at Barnes & Noble or Poisoned Pen (signed), assist to remedy this disappearing pastime.

Outlander:  A Place to Find Refuge During Life’s Most Unexpected Moments

Have you ever been faced with a difficult life moment and without conscious knowledge or thought turned to the Outlander series as a place of refuge?  Not under the best circumstances, but I found that this happened to me while sitting at the Ophthalmology office waiting for the physician to look at my son’s newly stitched, three-inch eye-lid laceration.  The depth of the laceration unfortunately led to the exposure of the lacrimal gland, causing additional complications.  An unforeseen accident, we were faced with surgeons and a series of doctor appointments that were not only stressful, but also terrifying in the process.  I have often heard many fans describe the Outlander series as place to find sanctuary or comfort when faced with difficult life events.  Here I was sitting in the doctor’s office, having the same experience that I have often heard from many other fans.

An Epic Outlander Fan Meet Up After Emerald City Comicon

The Outlander fandom has a unique ability to draw in fans from all across the world who, without the book or television series, may have never found a link to one another.  The passion shared for the love of this series not only brings fans together to form lasting friendships, it also creates a spirit of camaraderie that supports a genuine sense of connection to each other.  Sass3 takes great pleasure in being able to not only portray the Outlander fan experience, but, more importantly, share the positive impact this fandom contributes well beyond the love for the show and book series.

Our Appreciation for Matthew B. Roberts

I think we can all agree that there is one scene in Outlander Season 3 that we are all looking forward to seeing:  the reunion of Jamie and Claire after 20 years of separation.  This memorable scene takes place in Voyager, the third book of the Outlander series.  Many fans remember this moment by the finest of details, as the emotions of pain, loss, hope, love, and devotion could be felt in the beautiful imagery and narrative written by Diana Gabaldon.   Without question, we hope to see this reunion faithfully lifted from the book to the screen.  We could not have been happier when it was announced that Matthew B. Roberts was going to be working on this specific episode!

The Southern Sassenachs Positive Impact On The Lives Of Others

The Outlander fandom is powerful. It brings people together, who without the book or television series, may have never have met. Outlander is a medium to form friendships, share experiences, and most of all build comradery through our love for the book and television series. There is no doubt that Outlander fans are passionate. However, when you combine passion and purpose, it can generate change that expands well beyond any border. There is no better example of the level of impact one group can have, in and beyond their community, than the Southern Sassenachs. Driven to create a positive impact in the lives of others, they have come together to support the charities of Bloodwise and World Child Cancer – successfully raising money for each of these organizations.  It is with great pride and pleasure that Sass3 share their story:  from their early beginning of coming together to share their enjoyment of the Outlander series, creating a strong sense of community within their group, to ultimately transforming their passion for a greater purpose.
