    Summary

    When Jamie Fraser dreams, he wanders to familiar places, sometimes haunted, sometimes full of unfamiliar faces. When he dreams of strangers at Lallybroch, he discovers something he had not allowed himself in many years - hope. An uplifting, slightly AU short story in which Jamie's 'ghost' is explained.

    “You’ll tell me what you’re doing in this house, mistress, and you’ll be telling me straightaway.” The creeping sense that Jamie was missing a very crucial piece of information raised the hairs on the back of his neck. The woman gave him a patronizing look. “Roger, come up here. I found him,” she called over her shoulder into the belly of the hallway.
    “Who are you? Answer me, by Christ!” He reached for his dirk out of reflex and realized he had been disarmed for many years.
    “I’m Brianna,” she said.
    “Brianna,” Jamie snorted. It was a ridiculous name for a girl.
    “Brianna Ellen Randall. Your daughter.”

    Summary

    It was as if the two parts of Jamie’s soul, the bright, brash one she had married and the one tempered by pain and by deep love, laid bare to her in the wake of Wentworth prison, had lodged themselves in their own two children. She wondered at it; sometimes she would read John Donne’s "Metempsychosis" to the two infants, far too small to understand the words, and wonder too if this had been the journey Jamie’s own soul had traced, taking root in their children, the only two pieces she had left of him.

    -

    A somewhat canon divergent alternate universe in which Claire had twins after going back through the stones. Some things are taken from the book, some from the show, some invented entirely. Note: this is an anachronistic approach—an imaginative history, if you will—so there’s a lot more woke-ness from the main characters than you would find in the archive, whether for the 18th century or the 1960s. If you’re looking for gritty, hard-edged historical accuracy from your Claire and Jamie, you may want to look elsewhere :)

    Summary

    Brianna is about 4 years old when she discovers a book about Scottish estates at the library. Curious, she asks Claire to tell her a story about the people who lived there. At first, Claire is reluctant, not wanting to break her promise to Frank despite the already present strain on their marriage; but when Bree insists, she finds a way she can tell her about the Lady and Laird of Lallybroch without revealing herself to be a character in her own story.
