9277 I don't think there is. not that I've ever heard.

9277 Yes, I remember that. She realized the baby was biracial.

But, there also was the scene with the head lice and Jem's birthmark, and the discussion about how it was hereditary and that Roger had it too.

9277 No, lol. He's white, scottish, with black hair and green eyes.

9277 Nah, any general conversation about how good it was, or how much you like where the story is going, or actors acting... anything general can be discussed.

We just don't want any specific plot points that happen to be dropped where someone would accidentally see them. So nothing specific that happened in the episode. If you're talking about an actor and want to mention one specific scene that you loved, just use the spoiler tags. That saves people from accidentally seeing them.

9277 We can't have a chapter by chapter threads for every book in the outlander series. That would be hundreds of threads, and much more confusing. People would have to check their books before coming in to post.

Instead, as a rule, if you want to talk about Dragonfly in Amber freely, go to the Dragonfly in Amber's thread. In that thread you can talk about that book or any of the previous book without worry. It's pretty simple. In Drums of Autumn's thread you can freely talk about Outlander, Dragonfly, Voyager or Drums. You use spoiler tags if you want to talk about any of the books that come later.

In addition, there is a miscellaneous folder where there are a multitude of threads that members have made where you can discuss the whole series with as many spoilers as you want, as long as the subject line says that the thread contains spoilers for all books/episodes. If you don't see one, make one. We don't care, as long as it's got a clear subject line.

Nothing about this is unfair, and it's really not hard. The purpose for the rules is to protect new readers/watchers from getting spoilers. It really shouldn't be a big deal for the rest of us, as we should want to protect newbies and the integrity of the story.

And honestly, the three strikes thing was over a year ago as a response to members who argued about spoiler-tagging their posts, so bringing it up now was entirely snarky, particularly because Dee's reminder said nothing about strikes.

9277 Heck yeah! And, except for a few minor complaints, like (view spoiler), overall I thought it was a really cute read.

I would very much go on an adventure in Scotland in search of a real life Jamie Fraser!

9277 That's awesome, thanks for sharing!
Apr 18, 2016 07:31AM

9277 What!! I didn't know that! That would be awesome!!

I'll be curious to hear what you think about it. There are some parts that are pretty good, but some of it is a little long winded, lol.

9277 I just started Finding Fraser by K.C. Dyer today... and while it's silly (but cute) so far I've started to feel as though I should have offered it up as a group read, or buddy read, since we all share the heroine's love/obsession with Himself. Instead, I figured I'd point it out in case anyone wants to read it too, for a relaxed funny little adventure.

9277 Just to be clear, DG doesn't ever say that BJR is a sociopath. She says that he's a sadist, with sociopathic tendencies. But, that he DID love his brother.

"E: And that was evident where he was willing to trade information to care for his brother.

Diana: He would violate his code for his brother. People say he’s a psychopath or a sociopath, they don’t feel anything for anybody, but I think this is one of these broad generalizations. People that read psychology manuals try to map out the human psyche, and say, “well, he’s this way” and if your diagnosis is this, we make certain assumptions about this, and those assumptions may be totally wrong because people and the way their minds and their emotions work are much more flexible and messy than any psychologist could lay out on paper, let alone deal with. And obviously, he’s a pervert, with sociopathic tendencies, and that doesn’t mean he is incapable of love – he loves his brother – and people say, oh well, sociopaths don’t really feel love, they just get positive reinforcement from someone, and that is what they think is love."


When reading, I never ever doubted that what he felt for Alec was love. I just don't believe that's what he feels for Jamie.

9277 Yep, I concur. I left all my Facebook Outlander groups because of how mean and snippy they were with each other.
Fiery Cross (539 new)
Apr 13, 2016 12:20PM

9277 The first time I read the book, and anyone who I've convinced to read the series, has always struggled with the Gathering. Because it is SOOO long.

It is important though, as it introduces some pretty important characters, and the rest of the book moves faster.

Also, I found that my repeat reads of Fiery Cross I found the Gathering much more enjoyable, lol.

9277 I'm actually one of the few who always felt for Frank. He does get less page time in the series, which doesn't help. But it was never hard for me to put myself in his shoes.
Apr 11, 2016 07:34AM

9277 That was the episode that got to me too. I also liked the episode that showed Frank in 1948, when he thought he'd found Claire only to realize he'd been led out there to be robbed. More amazing acting from Tobias.

I love that Diane! It's beautiful!

9277 Diane wrote: "I love the books and I love the series but I thought the first couple of episodes would be slow to somebody that did not read the books. ( the beginning of the book was slow too IMO) I was surprise..."

I was surprised too, because I thought they were slow. Beautiful, but slower.

9277 Here's the thing... I don't actually think that Randall was in love with Jamie. He had a thing for Alexanders, which a lot of people believe stemmed from his brother. I think he became obsessed with Jamie because he was alive (view spoiler) and possibly because he couldn't have those feelings about his brother. Add to that, Jamie was charismatic... but I don't think 'love' was what he felt.

Grey, on the other hand, did feel love. He hated Jamie in the beginning, but shared time caused a love to grow. Unrequited. So he kept it inside as much as he could, and just stayed his best friend.

I think Gabaldon chose to write these two men specifically because of their differences in their strong emotions for Jamie. And to show how Jamie handles Grey's feelings for him AFTER what happened with Randall.

9277 NOPE! Frankly, I'm not sure I want it to. I'll probably by the television tie-in additions for each book. Funny thing is, I usually hate movie/tv covers on books.

9277 Oh yeah, I definitely have no idea what means, lol. I've wondered myself.
Mar 17, 2016 08:16AM

9277 LOL! With 4 copies of Outlander (printed) and 2 of each other book, I have to agree with that charge.
