    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

    When Claire's entire village is burned to the ground and her family with it, she is forced to make a fresh start in the city with nothing to her name at Dreamland, a night club and brothel in the city. Jamie is a soldier, tired of the lifestyle of partying with his brothers in arms, tired of the war, missing his beloved Lallybroch. When he sees Claire dancing, both of their lives are changed forever.

    Based loosely on the Opera "Madama Butterfly"/ "Miss Saigon" the Musical.

    Summary

    The year is 2279. World War IV has only been over for six months. The past eight years have taken Claire Beauchamp's parents, her job, her home, her youth, and almost her will to live. Not to mention her husband, and their unborn child. All she has left is a dream, and a vague longing for trees, and groundplants, and stones that are older than the rusty metal streets of Skycity 15 - which its residents call New Oxford. When she unexpectedly gets a chance to visit her Uncle Lamb on Cold Island 12 - the fallout haven that used to be known as the Scottish Highlands - she decides to use the trip to try and climb out of the empty hole that is her current existence. But what she finds there will not only change her life, it will change history itself.

    Summary

    A novel that re-imagines Outlander while trying to answer the question - what might have happened if it was Jamie who went through the stones to meet Claire in the 1940s? The sub-title should probably be: Outlander Run Through the Blender.

    Summary

    Disclaimer: If it wouldn’t end in scurvy I would live on chocolate. Also, I haven’t read the books, so [shrugs].
    Author’s Note: The twenty years of torture thing just doesn’t sit with me, There are reasons. Mostly I just want to see Jamie snuggle and parent his own wee bairns (see episode 208 for him cuddling a baby and if you don’t think it’s adorable, read no further…also, we’re not friends; we’ll never be friends). And I don’t buy that Claire would pretend that Jamie didn’t exist to please Frank (whom, I should note, I don’t dislike). I’m just not there. Since I haven’t seen a fic tackle this: Write the fic you wish to see in the world (apologies Ali; also imitation is the sincerest form of flattery).
    Summary: Homer’s Odyssey played a bigger role than she’d expected.
    ETA: The chapters will be getting a good typo edit now that they're done.
