    Summary

    “Lallybroch may no longer be yer husband’s land in name, but ye’ll always have a place here, Claire. Ye’ll always belong wi’ us.”

    Claire smiled at her tearfully. “Thank you, Jenny.”

    ——

    Right before Culloden, Jamie makes Claire promise she will be a mother to Fergus. With the deed of sasine in hand and that promise in her heart, Claire heads back to Lallybroch. There’s just one thing…she didn’t tell Jamie she was pregnant. Now, she is faced with the prospect of never getting to tell him, of having to raise their child without him. She is also faced with the dangerous reality of her high risk pregnancy. But Jamie made a promise: whatever happens, she’d never be alone again. And even without him, Claire can feel him keeping his promise through the love and comfort of his family, helping her bring their child into the world and raising her in his memory.

    ——

    My take on “Jamie doesn’t send Claire back through the stones.” I wanted to somehow prove that even if Jamie had died at Culloden like he’d planned, Claire still would have been happier raising her child with Jamie’s family in the past than she ever would have been in the future with Frank.

    Summary

    When her husband is offered a job in South Carolina, Claire Randall unwittingly leaves her successful medical career behind in London. What she thought would be a couple of months off to get things settled turns into nearly a year of floating around yacht parties and cocktail hours like an accessory on Frank's arm, hosting dinner parties she dreaded and being subtly spoken down to by the very man who's ring she wore. Just when the purposeless mundanity of her life as a bona fide Southern Socialite begins to truly sink in, two little girls move into the house next door, bringing sunshine back to her doorstep, and along with it their father.

    Inspired by Lovers In A Dangerous Time by The Barenaked Ladies, who I really do love, unironically.

    Summary

    What if Claire had gotten pregnant with Brianna a month or two earlier in the story, and she and Jamie had re-evaluated their priorities and decided that the cause was lost, and they were able to slip away from the army and quietly return to Lallybroch?
