    Summary

    First of all- PLEASE don't be put off by the large number of chapters that are accumulating. I drop tiny little chapters in midweek now and then, so that means the chapter count is higher than another fic of similar length.

    Claire Beauchamp is the newest faculty member at Leoch College in upstate New York (USA), following her dreams of a new career after her divorce. She meets Dr. James Fraser, director of Student Academic Support Services, and they spend the 2020-2021 school year navigating the various twists and turns of their own new relationship as the year unfolds.

    This fic will follow a typical American academic year in real time, but the best part is that there is no Covid-19 in this universe- only typical college shenanigans, with just enough angst and drama to add some spice to the story. We have enough stress in our lives right now. This fic will help you escape it all. Leoch College is in the Eastern US time zone and updates will follow that time zone.

    Follow me on Twitter! I'm Newbie Becca @Avg_OL_fangirl I post mood-boards for each chapter there.

    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

    "In my daughter's eyes, I am a hero. I am strong and wise, and I know no fear. But the truth is plain to see: she was sent to rescue me. I see who I want to be. In my daughter's eyes...And when she wraps her hand around my finger, how it puts a smile in my heart. Everything becomes a little clearer; I realize what life is all about. It's hanging on when your heart has had enough. It's giving more when you feel like giving up I've seen the light: It's in my daughter's eyes."

    ——

    Claire’s husband has abandoned her and their daughter, Faith, because he is unable to handle her diagnosis of nonverbal autism. In order to start a new life, Claire has taken Faith to New York. Desperate for some kind of breakthrough in Faith’s treatment, she decides to try horse therapy, where she meets Jamie Fraser, Faith’s assigned hippotherapist. Claire is overwhelmed and touched by Jamie’s dedication to his work, and his particular dedication to her daughter.
