middle of chapter 34: Dougal’s story

[When I don’t get around to write a post at the end of the day, it get’s tedious to recount all the events of several chapters of the book. That wasn’t the plan of these chronicles anyway. So I guess I’ll stick to the things I find remarkable, either because I had forgotten about them, didn’t notice them the first time or think differently about it in hindsight. I still couldn’t do that without the books on Kindle though :-)]

I very much enjoy getting to know Jenny Fraser Murry once again. She’s awesome and from the #DailyLines Diana Gabaldon tweets every once in a while from book 8 she continues to be awesome even 20+ years later.

We learn that Jamie smiles in his sleep when someone strokes his neck!
That has always been one of my favourite tidbits of information we learn about Jamie Fraser.

Things Jamie said…

about masturbation :-)
“Well, the church does teach that self-abuse is a sin, but my father said he thought that if it came to a choice between abusin’ yourself or some poor woman, a decent man might choose to make the sacrifice.”

about his father and Claire
“He’d have respected my choice whoever it was, but you” – he turned his head and kissed my brow gently “he would have liked you verra much, my Sassenach.”

when Claire wonders about all the things in his sporran
“It isn’t a rubbish,” he said, stung. “I’ve uses for all these things.”
My thought was: He’s worse than a woman with a large totebag ;-)

about responsibilities as a laird
“It’s a damn thin line between justice and brutality, Sassenach. I only hope I’ve come down on the right side of it.”

about wanting and loving
“I wanted ye from the first I saw ye – but I loved ye when you wept in my arms and let me comfort you, that first time at Leoch.”
and then they finally both say “I love you” *deepsigh*
