Scottish Warriors, Jamie and Claire, The Iron Throne and Other Things I Wish I'd Thought of
I am thrilled to hear the Scottish brogue and delighted to read about kilts and plaids and learn about the Clans. (the Highland variety, that is). The details of the Jacobites get a bit thick, but Jamie is involved and Jamie is heroic. And fluent in both Gaelic and French. And wears nothing under his kilt. And is romantic and red-haired and tall and manly. And Claire is smart and often droll and willing to sacrifice for her passions.
And the torture scenes make me squirm but holy cow!
So yeah. I wish I'd written this. I'm glad Daina Gabaldon did.
For that matter, I wish I was George RR Martin and brilliant enough to write GAME OF THRONES. I might have given Sansa more spunk but that's my only quibble. Anyone who could create Tyrion
What do you wish you'd written?
