Other sites you’re on: nope, I'm pretty much stuck on LJ land.
Over or Under 18: I'm 29 to be precise.
What's in your LJ? A lot of fandom posts mixed with some personal stuff.
How often do you post in your LJ? It can go from twice a week to every two days depending on how much work is kicking my ass.

Outlander (I’m basing this on the show since not everyone has read the books. If you wish to speak about the books, which you totally should feel free to do, please put anything behind a spoiler cut).

Have you read the books? No but I intend to when the hiatus starts.
Favourite characters: Hum, Jamie? and Jamie. And Jamie. I'm joking (only a little) because I LOVE Claire as well. She's a very interesting and refreshing female character. Geillis seems intriguing so I'm waiting to see more of her.
What’s your favourite thing about the show so far? I really love the pacing. I didn't like the first episode much but once the show traveled to Scotland, the pacing wasn't an issue anymore because of how interesting everything became. I love learning about lifestyles and other cultures so this is working pretty great for me!
What is one thing you wish the show would improve on? I'm one of those people not completely in love with the voice overs although I haven't complained about them in two or three episodes so I think they're starting to annoy me less and less. They sounded a little too much in the first episode. Caitriona is a great actress and Claire's motives are often quite clear so a lot of the voice overs in the first few episodes felt unnecessary/distracting but lately, they've been less... useless, I guess.
Favourite moments so far: Anything that has Jamie and Claire interacting tbh. I also really love scenes like feasts or gatherings.
Favourite pairings: Jamie/Claire (obviously) and pretty much Jamie/Claire right now since I haven't read the books :)

Other fandoms/Non fannish interests.

Other shows you watch, characters you love, pairings you’ll ship till the end of time: Apart from Outlander, I also really love Penny Dreadful, Arrow, Orphan Black and lots more than you can find here (http://woodenshores.livejournal.com/11723.html#cutid1). But lately, apart from Outlander, I'm completely into K-drama.
Favourite movies/musicians/models, etc: Pretty much everything you need to know about me is here (http://woodenshores.livejournal.com/2681.html#cutid1)
Other interests: Traveling and reading are my main hobbies. But I talk about traveling more than I talk about reading ;-)

Over or Under 18: Over... yeah.
What's in your LJ? [livejournal.com profile] sireesanwar
How often do you post in your LJ?
Lately, not as often as I'd like because I'm so absorbed in Outlander but multiple times a week usually.

Outlander (I’m basing this on the show since not everyone has read the books. If you wish to speak about the books, which you totally should feel free to do, please put anything behind a spoiler cut).

Have you read the books? Yes!
Favourite characters: Jamie, Dougal, Claire, Ian <--That is just Outlander.
What’s your favourite thing about the show so far? The complexity that is really being fleshed out.
What is one thing you wish the show would improve on? More of Jamie's personality so far. I feel like the show has kind of hid a lot of what Jamie is really like in the books. By this point we don't know a lot about Jamie but there is more conversation so you get a sense of his personality and such.
Favourite moments so far: Angus drinking the port. LOL Spanish? I just loved it.
Favourite pairings: Well, I love the great interactions between Jamie and Claire in episode 3 but overall the best interactions have been between Dougal and Claire.

Outlander
I stumbled onto the books when I walked into my at-the-time-local book store during their 60% off fiction sale. I can't say I'm very well read but I like what I like and when I picked up book one of this series and read the back cover I was hooked. They have been the soulmates of my reading life ever since, the ones I always go back to.

Have you read the books?
Yes, yes, yes, more times than I can count or remember. Favourites are Outlander (aka Cross Stitch), Voyager, and A Breathe of Snow and Ashes.
I’m currently up to page four of book 8

Favourite characters:
Mrs Fitz, Claire, Jamie, and the guy that follows Claire around.
I think Father Bane is going to be one that I love to hate.

What’s your favourite thing about the show so far?
It’s fantastic cinematography – utterly breath-taking!

What is one thing you wish the show would improve on?
I’ve read a lot of comments about the voiceovers, but honestly, I’m absolutely ok with everything. I’m just ravenously devouring every second of air time and craving more. I’m sure, once I’m onto rewatches and have the discs at home to watch whenever the desire takes hold, then I’ll be noticing more and more of the finer details.

Favourite moments so far:
- Claire’s climb to the stones, having read the book, I was sitting on the edge of my seat whispering “This is it! OMG! Here we go! This is it!”
- Hearing Jamie say “I canna ride a horse”, for some reason hearing that, fixed Sam as Jamie in my heart, and I remember settling back in my seat and knowing that everything was going to be ok.
- The scene by the river where Jamie’s pointing his sword at Claire: “Then I guess you’ll be comin’ w’me.” Love that scene.

Favourite pairings:
I don’t know if I’ll be shipping or writing fic for Outlander, Diana did such a fabulous job I don’t consider anything to be lacking; but naturally I love Claire/Jamie

Other fandoms/Non fannish interests.
Fandoms: Stargate Atlantis, Supernatural (these are the two I’m active in, but there are a tonne more that I watch and love).

The Basics.

Name?: Barbara
Location: Home: England / Uni: Wales
Other sites you’re on: LJ is my only blog. The only other place I write uncensored is Twitter.
Over or Under 18: I'm 29.
What's in your LJ? Fandom flail, life stuff, randomness.
How often do you post in your LJ? Depends. Sometimes every few days, sometimes every couple of weeks. There's no set pattern. I rarely update every day.

Outlander (I’m basing this on the show since not everyone has read the books. If you wish to speak about the books, which you totally should feel free to do, please put anything behind a spoiler cut).

Have you read the books? I've read the first one and intend to start the second one as soon as I can get my hands on a copy.
Favourite characters: Obviously I love Claire because she's a fighter in a world where women were second class citizens. I don't think anyone can help but love Jamie. His character is one of the most singular magnetic characters that I've ever encountered in fiction. I also have a special place in my heart for Ned Gowan the lawyer. I can relate to his sense of adventure and romanticism.
What’s your favourite thing about the show so far? I like the little bits and pieces that aren't in the book. For example the bit in the last episode with the hot piss - while gross I like that they're putting in a lot of historical detail which can only enhance the viewers' belief in the story. It feels so real.
What is one thing you wish the show would improve on? I find the pace a bit frustrating but at the same time the slow progression will make the inevitable explosive.
Favourite moments so far: I loved the bar brawl in the most recent episode. When I read a similar scene in the book I was hearing a jolly bagpipe tune comically playing in the background and the TV show did just that.
Favourite pairings: Claire/Jamie, obviously. Angus/alcohol is pretty great too.

Other fandoms/Non fannish interests.

Other shows you watch, characters you love, pairings you’ll ship till the end of time:
TV Shows: Doctor Who, Sherlock, Game of Thrones, Scandal
Pairings: Johnlock, Whouffle, Whouffaldi, Rhaegar/Lyanna, Olitz
Favourite movies/musicians/models, etc:
Movies: Way too many to list. I love films involving journeys (Little Miss Sunshine, The Secret Life of Walter Mitty etc), fantasy/superhero movies (X-Men, Captain America etc) and I adore period dramas.
Music: I listen to everything from metal right through to pop.
Other interests: Hiking, traveling, reading

Favourite characters: Jamie. <3 I also really admire Claire, and love and hope to see more of Mrs. Fitz.

What is one thing you wish the show would improve on? Subtitles or translations for the Gaelic? I want to actually know what they're saying, writers!
Favourite moments so far: Jamie sleeping outside Claire's door to protect her. The Gaelic song about the woman coming through the stones and back again. Basically any scene with Jamie and Claire together.

Outlander.

Have you read the books? nope, not yet! I'd heard about them and wanted to read but I never got round to it; the show has definitely kindled a new interest in them for me though! :)
Favourite characters: no surprises there, Claire and Jamie ;) I was quite interested in Graham McTavish's character at first as well (cause Graham McTavish!) but so far he's turning out to be a bit of a dick hahaha
What’s your favourite thing about the show so far? literally everything! the general atmosphere, the soundtrack, the scenery, the costumes, the Gaelic!, and of course Claire/Jamie
What is one thing you wish the show would improve on? the only thing I could think of is subtitles for the Gaelic, even though in a sense it adds to the mystery not knowing what they're saying and it makes you identify with Claire more, cause she doesn't understand it either
Favourite moments so far: bloody and hurt Jamie near the end of 1x01 and the whole "I suppose that means you're coming with me dialogue" UGHH it's when I knew I was completely and utterly in love LOL :P but any moment between him and Claire when there's *those looks* and things, or when he was sleeping outside her room, that was so adorable :')
Favourite pairings: in case anyone was wondering, Claire/Jamie

What's in your LJ? Capslock. Fannish musings. Picspams. Occasional fic. Squee. Me trying to be funny.
How often do you post in your LJ? Really variable. I go through phases of getting fandom mania and posting multiple times a week and then work will get hectic and I'll go weeks without posting anything. I like to keep people guessing.

Outlander (I’m basing this on the show since not everyone has read the books. If you wish to speak about the books, which you totally should feel free to do, please put anything behind a spoiler cut).

Have you read the books? I'm currently 40% of the way through An Echo in the Bone according to my kindle. So I suppose that means almost!
Favourite characters: Since we're talking show it's got to be Jamie, Claire and Mrs Fitz. With Angus and Rupert as my preferred comedy duo.
What’s your favourite thing about the show so far? How true to the book they're being. The clothes. The scenery. The chemistry. The eye-sex. The fact that they've somehow managed to make me care about Frank.
What is one thing you wish the show would improve on? I would like every episode to be longer and have 50% more longing looks from Jamie.
Favourite moments so far: Any time Jamie gives Claire that look. Claire literally falling over Jamie. Claire being feisty and/or messing with people not knowing what a sedative is.
Favourite pairings: I don't really ship anyone on this show... HAHA YEAH RIGHT. Jamie/Claire. Dougal/history. Angus/Rhennish.

Other fandoms/Non fannish interests.

Other shows you watch, characters you love, pairings you’ll ship till the end of time: There's a really long list and you can find most of them here (http://catteo.livejournal.com/73538.html). My profile says this: Currently Outlander, The Musketeers, Rookie Blue, Orphan Black, Justified, Breaking Bad, The Vampire Diaries, Battlestar Galactica, Veronica Mars, Game of Thrones, The Good Wife, Teen Wolf, So You Think You Can Dance, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Dawson's Creek, NCIS:LA. Most of that is true. There are lots more though.
Favourite movies/musicians/models, etc: I have an unhealthy obsession with Zac Efron. The Notebook and Dirty Dancing are my go-to movies when I'm having a terrible day. My music tastes could be charitably described as 'eclectic' but I do make music recs from time to time. JLaw is my homegirl.
Other interests: Travelling, reading, pretending to be a person who exercises, being a semi-professional drinker, excellent food.

Outlander (I’m basing this on the show since not everyone has read the books. If you wish to speak about the books, which you totally should feel free to do, please put anything behind a spoiler cut).

What's in your LJ? A little bit of everything. I talk a lot about my day to day, occasional gushing, writing stuff, recipes, and so on.
How often do you post in your LJ? I try to do it every day during the week, which is why there's so much life stuff in it, lol.

Outlander (I’m basing this on the show since not everyone has read the books. If you wish to speak about the books, which you totally should feel free to do, please put anything behind a spoiler cut).

Have you read the books? Yes
Favourite characters: Jamie, Claire, Dougal
What’s your favourite thing about the show so far? How authentic it all feels. Scotland is one of my favorite places on the planet, especially the Highlands, and the cinematography is just making love to it. The art direction and costuming have been top-notch, too.
What is one thing you wish the show would improve on? I am not a fan of the narration. I know how important it is with Claire's POV and so much information to get out, but my hope is that it becomes less necessary once the world is completely established.
Favourite moments so far: I cried during the Dougal/Claire scene where the man died on the boar hunt. Jamie's double take and shocked look when Claire suggested he come into her room to sleep.
Favourite pairings: Jamie/Claire, though I'll be honest, if I hadn't read the books so am more familiar with Dougal, I'd probably be all over Dougal/Claire. Graham McTavish is AMAZING.

Other fandoms/Non fannish interests.

Other shows you watch, characters you love, pairings you’ll ship till the end of time: Merlin (I'm a rare pair girl there), Buffy (Spike/Buffy), Sons of Anarchy, Once Upon a Time (Emma/Killian). There's probably more, but this is what pops into my head first.
Favourite movies/musicians/models, etc: I'm a film ho so I can't even list a top 10, I've seen too much, lol. I'm currently all about Tom Hardy, though. LOVE him. I'm also a big fan of classic movies. For instance, The Philadelphia Story will never not be genius and charming. Oh, and I got obsessed with The Hunger Games after reading the books. Love Katniss/Peeta. Music-wise, I'm very eclectic in my tastes. Current obsessions are A Great Big World and John Newman.
Other interests: I read a ton across a lot of genres. I love to cook. I'm a lifelong theater geek.
Anything else you’d like to share with us: I am one of those who will cling to LJ until they tear it away from my cold, dead fingers. I've been here since July 2003 when I was deep into Buffy fandom, which should give you an idea how old I am, lol.

The Basics.

Name?: Elisa
Location: Italy
Other sites you’re on: IDreamwidth, Instagram.
Over or Under 18: I'm 30
What's in your LJ? 40% fandom musings ( other than Outlander, I'm into Doctor Who, Sherlock, The Good Wife, Peaky Blinders, Shameless (US), Game of Thrones - and this is only the currently-airing tv series.) 50% real life stuff (I'm an English teacher and translator by training, at the moment I'm on maternity leave, languages, photography and travelling are my main passions) and 10% books.
How often do you post in your LJ? At least a couple times a week. Lately a bit more frequently because I'm stuck home with a tiny baby and so I have a lot more free time on my hands than usual.

Outlander (I’m basing this on the show since not everyone has read the books. If you wish to speak about the books, which you totally should feel free to do, please put anything behind a spoiler cut).

Have you read the books? Yes, but not the whole series. Outlander is one of my favourite comfort reads so I read/listen to the wonderful audiobook version frequently enough, when I need something uncomplicated and absorbing to distract me from RL blahs. I read book#2 and #3 rather quickly and didn't like them as much and my interest in the whole series floundered when the focuse drifted away from Jamie and Claire...I'm curious to see if the tv show can get me to read give the series another go.
Favourite characters: Jamie and Claire is a bit obvious...so, I'll go with Murtagh. Taciturn and loyal highlander FTW!
What’s your favourite thing about the show so far? how faithful they've been to the book while being extremely accurate in historical terms. Plus the gorgeous cinematography.
What is one thing you wish the show would improve on? I can't thing of a single thing. :D
Favourite moments so far: I have two. 1) At the end of 'Rent' when Angus helps Claire unlatch something from her pack and when Claire makes the handjob joke at Rupert's expense and he and the rest start laughing - two lovely touches to underline that Claire has finally been accepted by the clansmen. 2) (predictably) the Jamie/Claire exchange outside of her room in the inn in 'Rent' again.
Favourite pairings: Jamie/Claire, do you really need to ask? :P I don't mind Claire/Frank either.

Other fandoms/Non fannish interests.
