    Summary

    “Oh, no,” he says, crossing his arms in an eerie impression of Da. “No no no. We are not using poor Minette as a – a – what is the ridiculous English word –”

    “A distraction,” says Bree.

    “A scapegoat,” says Fergus, aggrieved.

    In front of them, Minette bleats. Bree, dressed in a filched pair of Ian’s breeks and already muddy from the morning’s chores, raises a single ruddy eyebrow at her older brother.

    “Will ye hate me for pointin’ out that she is, in fact, a goat?”

    Claire and Jamie build their home and place and people, one chaotic day at a time.

    Summary

    Claire is very well aware of the Hippocratic exhortation do no harm, but she is also of the stout opinion that Hippocrates must never have had a husband whom he loved with the very fiber of his bones, nor three bright-eyed children laying claim to his heart.

    Summary

    Bree seems to have shifted herself awake in his arms. Even in her half-moment of wakefulness, she has slipped right into her usual chatterbox ways. Her words are garbled, and plugged up.

    “There’s four of ‘em Da.”

    “Four,” comes Jamie’s voice, like this is fascinating news.

    “Four chik’ns.”

    He is lilting, almost sing-song, as he responds to her. It is as though the world is only he and Bree and the nonsense they are murmuring about, and there is an abstract part of Claire that thinks she could listen to him speak like this for the rest of her life, and be content.

    Summary

    They watch as Jamie presses a smacking kiss to Maggie’s chubby cheek. Beside Claire, Jenny snorts.

    “He’s been like this since we were bairns,” she says, in answer to the unasked question. Her eyes roll with the fond impatience unique to siblinghood. “Touchy an’ clingy like a wee limpet. Can ye gi’ me a kiss g’night, Janet? Right after he’d announced he’d be comin’ wi’ me tae feed the chickens tomorrow lest he had tae protect me from bears along the way.”

    Claire must puff out her cheeks to smother her laughter. "I'm sure Lallybroch was rife with bears," she says, and thinks that there is something inherently healing about the concept of home.

    Summary

    “I’m Frank!” Frank yells, pressing himself as close to the wall behind him as humanly possible with one arm immobilized and the rest of him tangled in starchy bedding. “Frank Randall! Please!

    Everyone freezes. 

    From the other side of the door, there is the faint sound of birds chirping, as though everything going on in this cursed cabin is suspended in a reality far away from the real world of the outdoors. The assorted tangle of children is wide-eyed, mouthing silently at each other in total confusion.

    Finally, the old man lowers his dirk half a centimeter, and says -- very slowly, as though barely able to believe it himself --

    “... Claire’s … Frank?”

     

    Claire Fraser tells some stories, fields an odd, recurring dream, and finally learns the true magic of the Stones.

    Summary

    Their apartments are dingy in the way that the corners remain dark and the fire feels like it is all but struggling to bring light to the place, but Claire stands, hair loose and undone and hands dirtied from her day’s work, managing bubbling water and carefully ordered medicine box and the mending by the foot of the bed with a sort of seamless, stubborn grace. Suddenly, he cannot bring himself to move forward, because something about the way she is placed against the lone light source in the room is making it look as though she is from whence the light is coming, rather than the fire.

    The continuing, in-between adventures of the faerie and her lad.

    Summary

    Whilst stuck in Edinburgh and not able to get on any boats, Bree asks her mother three very important questions, discovers that knights are her favourite playing piece in chess -- they move in funny shapes, Bree tells Willie immediately after Da's lesson, and they ride horses -- and speculates upon the existence of faeries.

    Mama speculates with her.

    Summary

    When Claire looks back on the events leading up to the Rising, she will not think of the cold, or the hunger, or the metallic tang of blood and metal ever-present against the back of her tongue. She will not think about every tragedy she tries to prevent, or the taste of desperation swelling and sticking like silt in her throat, leaving its bloody, godforsaken fingers smeared there for years to come.

    She will think of an embrace, delicate as a bird’s egg in its weighty carefulness, that took place just on her other side.

    What would you do if you had a chance at a do-over, for redemption?

Something goes wrong though and Claire ends up in a most unexpected year.

    Summary

    Instead of Dougal choosing Jamie to marry Claire, he chooses Murtagh. How does this marriage of convenience pan out for them? How do their complicated, conflicted feelings of kinship, loyalty, respect, growing friendship, love, and passion come to be? And how will Claire’s undeniable bond with and attraction to Jamie impact things?*

    *As canon Murtagh is 52 to Claire’s 26 (making him literally twice her age and old enough to be her father), you’ll find I’ve tweaked his age and story line with Ellen a little. He’s still very much in love with Jamie’s mother, but how this came to be is slightly different. Be patient and bear with me, it’ll make sense.

    Summary

    Prompt: Hiya! I was wondering if there could be any Murtagh POV from first book/season? Related to either Jamie’s, Claire’s or both’s actions or circumstances? Thanks!
