Outlander Stuff: SWD Finished Drums of Autumn
posted by snowwhitedrifted (SWD/ West Coast Stacey)
Soooo last night I finished Drums of Autumn (book 4 in the series)… and I had some thoughts.
*Spoilers* Dinna read beyond this if you are East Coast Stacey
Ian: IAN!!!!! *hugs and sniff* Noooo, not Ian! Couldn’t Bree be there instead? Sorry B fans, but Ian’s one of my favorites. Ian, your skinny lil arse better be speaking the Gaelic in the Fiery Cross. Seriously, how does he have such misfortune? I’m going to send him my pocket Edward for luck (they bring prosperity, who knew?) because he needs some good fortune. Pirates, a witch, Indians… What’s next? Vampires? Will Ian be out fighting like a Brave and stumble into Bon Temps? I don’t trust 18th century Lorena. Stay North, Ian, stay North.
Fergus: So Fergus says, like 2 sentences? And we just grace over the fact that Marsali arrives from Jamaica? I really like the Ferg, I was hoping for more of him.
Someone’s knocked up: and there’s baby daddy drama. This is interesting no matter what century you’re in. This started back with Mary, Joseph and the Holy Spirit and is still a top issue. Juicy. But seriously, 2 of the 3 of you are college grads. Umm, tsk tsk. But speaking of Roger, I enjoyed that Jamie thought that Rog resembled his uncle Dougal and how he still had love for the Doog despite what happened. I dinna know why, but I have a soft spot for the ‘ol Dougal too. Tough yes, but I see this (scroll down).
Fav. Jamie moment: After the fight in the village
Claire: Jamie, did you kill someone?
Jamie: I— probably.
Fav. Claire moment: The man bits conversation with Brianna. 3-D. Brilliant. Also, uhhh – the medicinal foot maggots. I was eating a spicy tuna roll while reading. So thanks for that.
Speaking of Brianna and Claire, why have they not had this conversation:
Brianna: God, it smells
Brianna: Screw penicillin, can’t you formulate Right Guard?
Claire: Too true, or maybe Febreeze
Brianna: I miss ice cubes
Let’s not forget the 1960’s vs. 1760’s. I want them to commiserate a bit because I’m still caught up on the hygienic differences.
They left the comfort of this,……………………… to be surrounded by this:
