While my poutlandering is mostly over, I’ve now moved on to depression and pending starvation in the Stages of Outlander Interminable Hiatus Response (it’s a distant cousin to The Stages of Grief, to which I wrote an entire FANFIC back in the day because they’re so interesting.)
Anyway, the stages:
4. Calmly Continue to Flip Out
5. Despondent Acceptance
6. Slightly Less Despondent Acceptance
7. Further Crying
8. Mixed Tape Creation
9. Random Fandom Activity
10. Move On for 6 months, with occasional (frequent) toe dips into fandom and much sobbing and drinking (see Claire getting Sassenachwasted — tm Outlandercast — above)
There should probably be “Threats” and “Cursing” in there, but that’s against STARZ, and they don’t care.
It is sad to me that this is the first episode of Outlander I’m not excited about, even though it looks to be a great one. And while it was originally part of my flounce threatening not to watch, I honestly don’t know if I will. Maybe I’ll save it until the cold, dark halfway point of the 20 year hiatus, and have a real marathon with a little kick. But I know I’m going to want to talk about it with all my brothers and sisters — if they still love me. I DUNNO WHAT TO DO!
Oh, who am I trying to kid? I’ll totally watch it, ’cause i have no self control. That’s why I make myself sick because I eat the whole pizza, cake, pie… you get the picture.
The previews look SO GOOD. I mean, more Frank, Jamie/Claire honeymoon, learning to fight, the dragonfly in amber. *sigh* But then, to be left BEREFT! It’s like >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>SPOILERS FOR THE BOOKS FOLLOW<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
Jamie and Claire being apart for TWENTY YEARS! The longing, the sensation that you will NEVER BE TOGETHER AGAIN. All of the sorrow and horror you face in between the time you’re separated from your lover.
Well, at least we won’t be in prison. But I won’t meet Lord John Grey, either, more’s the pity. How much would we all love him to be our BFF?
Hm. Maybe I’ll join a dating service and try to meet a Jamie of my very own. If you have a spare hot friend around — kilt lovely, but optional — I’m single!
Anyway, before I’m off to work on my book, a couple of things:
1. The third part of Killing Time’s HILARIOUS Wedding postmortem is up. Make sure to leave your coffee on the table as you read.
2.) For those of you who enjoy Urban Fantasy or Paranormal Romance, standard or kink, feel free to swing by my writing/books blog, Bloodthirsty Muses. I’ll be doing a lot of original writing over the next six months, trying to address my fiction stuff that’s been languishing!
Okay, I’m off to waste hours and hours I should be writing on social media… maybe a post later or tomorrow? I dunno. Everybody have fun!
