The State of my Ships

If you know me at least a little bit, you probably have already figured out that this post won’t be about the state of any nautic vessels, but the other, much more interesting kind of ship. I could also have used the title “State of my OTP’s” but I guess that would have caused a lot more “WTF does she mean by that?” reaction.. :-)

The last episode of “Parenthood” broke my Sarah/Hank shipper heart into tiny little pieces. Seriously! I know there has to be drama and cliff hangers on a season finale and I know there is probably no way of knowing yet if Ray Romano will be back for a season 5, if there will be a season 5. So many things are unkown and that alone should have been reason enough to grant as a happy endying for those two. So, in that regard, the season finale left me underwhelmed and a disappointed, but all the other storylines made up for it. Such a wonderful show, such an amazing family.

William Monk and Hester Latterly finally got married in book 10 of the Monk Series. I very much enjoy to see them married and to see the change this relationship brings out in both of them. Yes, this novel series was kind of addictive when it comes to the “will they finally admit what they feel for each other” question. Now that they did I might slow down with catching up on the complete series. There are still 10 more novels to read, so I guess that will keep me busy till the summer. Totally random note: I have no idea how I ever lived without my Kindle :-)

Meredith and Derek are having a baby. And Meredith is hormonal and horny and we got such a wonderful sneak peek for this week’s episode. Definitely the OTP of the show and I’m so glad to see them happy together without any more personal drama and fighting and everything so wonderfully ordinary like pregnancy hormones. They’ve come a long way and I was with them every step of it.

Outlander Chronicles 2013
Day 008 |Audiobook: Outlander, Part 2 | 01:37:05 – 03:09:05 |
(till the middle of chapter 16: One Fine Day)

I can’t mention or cite all the wonderful moments and lines from these scenes. Let me just say, I enjoyed listening to it again as much as I did the first time and as much as every time I’ve been reading this part of Outlander.

Jamie and Claire got married. And there was a wedding night. And Jamie lost his virginity :-) And everything about all of this was perfect. It’s sexy and romantic and hilarious, most of all because there is such a vast contrast between the experienced 20th century woman and the young inexperienced 18th century guy with such a different set of moral values as Claire herself. But I love it.

I have to share a few of my favourite lines from this part

“I said I was a virgin, not a monk,” he said, kissing me again. “If I find I need guidance, I’ll ask.”

And when he finally enters her

“Holy God,” said James Fraser, who never took the name of the Lord in vain. :-)

and some time later…

“Haven’t you ever seen a naked woman before?” I asked.
“Aye, but not one so close.” His face broke into a broad grin. “And not one that’s mine.”

Maybe I should change the name of this category to “Things Jamie Fraser Said…” :-) And once again I can’t stress enough that Davina Porter is doing an amazing job narrating the audiobooks.
