• Mid Season 4 Check In!

        Hold on as this rollercoaster takes off!    Episode 5 “Savages” So many tears this episode! First, I am loving the opening between Adawehi and Claire. Two equals. Two lady healers talking about plants and thus “breaking bread” together. When Adawehi says about Brianna to Claire “she’s here”, did you think she knew

  • Season 4 Review So Far: Where do we go from here?

    Episode 4 “Common Ground” marks a quarter way through Season 4 of Claire and Jaime’s epic journey through the colonies. In true Outlander fashion, much has already happened and I’m wondering how will the story unfold from here? The teaser for Episode 5 dangles a carrot by way of Brianna: She looks awfully close to those

  • New York Comic Con 2018 Part 2: Veni, Vidi, Vici

    There are many benefits to living in New York City and one of them is when Outlander comes to New York Comic Con! This was the first year they came and thus it was my first time attending the Con as a fan (disregard that one time being dragged to only see the Exhibitors Hall by a

  • Outlander NJ Con 2018 Recap!

    I did it! I made it through my first con! I learned so much! To summarize my time in a few words at the Creation Entertainment New Jersey Con 2018: lotsa cosplay, meeting new friends, seeing old friends, fun at the cast Q&As, blink-and-it’s-over pics with the cast, bad expo center food, and fun that

  • Drums of Autumn Quotes

    I’m getting ready for Season 4 by reading “Drums of Autumn” by Diana Gabaldon. Here are some of my favorite quotes so far that I posted on Instagram. If you’re on Insta make sure you follow me! What are your favorites?  

  • Outlander Season 3 Collector’s Edition: What’s in the box?

    As Droughtlander labors on, super fans like me pre-ordered the Season 3 Collector’s Edition and when it arrived, gleefully unwrapped the package with a smirk not unlike that of the Amazon’s logo. The first thing I noticed was how light it was compared to the hulking Season One Collector’s Edition but on second thought there

  • Urban in Scotland: Ghost Stories

    Claire: It looks like you’ve seen a ghost. Frank: I’m not at all sure that I haven’t.             A year and a half ago, I began researching a trip to Scotland and my friend Sarah tells me about the short time she spent in Edinburgh years ago. “It has a

  • Urban in Scotland: The Itinerary & Music List

    If you asked me over two years ago if I was interested in traveling to Scotland, I would’ve said nope. Well after two seasons of Outlander and a few books by Diana Gabaldon, I’m just days away from traveling to this small country that has claimed a piece of people’s hearts! See my itinerary below and then take

  • What Would Claire Do?: Traveling Solo

               The hem of my blue skirt flaps in the wind as I bike along a dirt path on a main road that heads back into a small town. I’m beating the sun’s descent below the humid horizon as my legs peddle faster. The dampness of my hair clings to my

  • #VoyagerVirgin: The Voyage up to the 20th Chapter

    Before I embark on my first voyage to Scotland, I’ve been reading “Voyager”, the third book of Diana Gabaldon’s “Outlander” book series. This is not only the first time I’m reading the book but also reading it before I watch the season on Starz TV. I’m sensing a theme of a lot of firsts! I’m

  • Byee 2016! Hello Outlander Season 3 2017!

    It’s a Special Holiday Edition: Jamie in a stocking (kind of), EW came out with an official Season 3 photo and it sent people into a tizzy – what’s up with the anti-Frank Randall comments? Are you signing up for Sam Heughan’s My Peak Challenge 2017? I salute you from my couch. Also, I’m about

  • There is No Conspiracy. Just Real People Making A Show.

    Photo courtesy of outlander-online.com Following post inspired by “The Making of Outlander” book by Tara Bennett. You can read a review of it here.   In light of appreciation for the hard work that goes into making this show, I really need to give my two cents about some other hot-button Outlander things that I

  • Dragonfly in Amber: Reflections on the book & the TV adaptation

                So Season 2 ended (with a bang I think!) and “Dragonfly in Amber” (aka DIA) beckoned me from my bookshelf as Droughtlander began. I read DIA for the first time after Season 2 ended. This was a theme I began after seeing Season 1 and then reading the first book “Outlander”. All of this

  • When Sparks Light the Fire – Fandom Through My Years

    Cassettes, CDs, posters, live recordings, pins, VHS tapes, concert tickets, t-shirts, baseball hats, magazine clippings, MTV interviews and music videos…   When I was an adolescent, I had an obsession with the band Bush. For any who may not know, this was Gavin Rossdale’s band in the mid to late 90’s (it was never just
