the outlander topic is back, sassenachs!!!! because i have to. i have to talk about it on the reg. and there might be some light spoilers here! you've been warned...
"'and sassenach,' he whispered, 'your face is my heart.'"
[james alexander malcolm mackenzie fraser. melt! aaand let us proceed...]
so, hellooo, latest in outlander happenings: the season 2 finale of the show!!! right? right? i finally caught up a few weekends ago, and much like the book, dragonfly in amber... it left me in shattered little pieces of brittany right there on the floor. in my puddle of tears. ugh. ugh. ugh. i still think that was an absolutely cruel twist on diana's part!! and i still remember how i felt when i first opened book 2 and felt the sledgehammer to my heart... but i also can't complain! because never, ever have i loved a book series more... slash, been more delusional about my relationship with two characters. lovingly delusional. just how i like it!
sidenote! i usually don't get my undergarments in a twist over book-to-show changes [ahem... looking at you, characters with VERY wrong eye colors. i mean, i still have my opinions!], but there was one thing they left out of the finale that kiiiind of devastated me. then i read why, and felt a bit better!
also!! heavens to betsy, i have been trying for waaaay too long to finish a full reread of the books before i dive into the latest of the eight... which came out a year ago! a year! and i still haven't read it! so, anyway, somewhat recently, i finally wrapped up book 5, dove right on into the next book that was on my kindle [easiest for bed reading, travel reading, you know...] and made it a whole quarter of the way into the book, thinking... man, i must've skimmed a lot of the last book?!? i'm sure missing some key points here... befoooore realizing i'd accidentally skipped book 6 and gone to book 7! ahhhhhhh. so now i'm back trying to plow through 6. BUT it's truly worth taking it slowly. jamie and claire are two characters you don't want to miss a moment with. :) well, i don't. because i need to be with them.
AND! by the way!! there's an official title for the 9th book!!!!! gives me chills, CHILLS, people!!!
ps. around the time the show was coming out, i got on skreened and whipped up a little sassenach t-shirt that i wanted to give to my sis and bestie for their birthdays. i mentioned it here once around then, too, and it's been the. best. t-shirt. ever! and a whole handful of them have sold since then, too, which has been such a fun bonus!!
SO, i thought... in honor of the summer heat, and the recent season two experience, which was mostly so frenchy and fancy, right?! [i loved getting to visualize all of that!!] well, i finally couldn't help myself and drew up some sassenach tanks! i mean, i didn't literally draw them. but, you know. okay, AND THEN! i thought... well, we're gonna need something to cozily watch and read in come winter... soooo... fine fine! i'll just have to tack on some sweatshirts, too. :)
here they are! [each with green, plum, and black writing]
also, baby sassenach love. :*
[to sum up a smidge!! tee // skirt // and books in order: outlander, dragonfly in amber, voyager, drums of autumn, the fiery cross, a breath of snow and ashes, an echo in the bone, written in my heart's own blood // additionally, there's the outlandish companion, volumes one and two, and the graphic novel! i have not read the lord john series or the novellas.]
so, if only we knew when season 3 was starting, right? and when book 9 will be out! okay, maybe i don't want to know. i'll just keep on with my re-reads! :) xoxoxo
