The Basics.

Name?: Melanie
Location: France
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 ( 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 (
Other interests: Traveling and reading are my main hobbies. But I talk about traveling more than I talk about reading ;-)
Anything else you’d like to share with us: Obligatory Outlander gif
