I’m not even gonna apologize for yet another Jamie edition of TWHST. And it’s not even Thursday today, mind you. No apologies on that either.
Every Thursday we are hosting a brand new meme called: That’s what HE said Thursday by Chapter Break.
Come join us every Thursday by posting a favorite line from your book boyfriend to his heroine. Keep in mind these are direct quotes from dialogue in a book. It is NOT a physical description of a male protag or a paragraph of dialogue. It is a line spoken by our favorite heroes to their lucky ladies.
I’m currently on the last 100 pages of Voyager and last night on my way there, I came across the part where Jamie had to drop something big on Claire not knowing that she already knew about it. (I don’t mind spoilers myself but I rarely spoil people so if you’re read Voyager, you know what I mean, yes?)
Let me tell you… legit TEARS ran down my face by the time I came across this quote:
It affected me so darn much, I put it on Instagram. ;___; The whole chapter absolutely gutted me. The angst, the heartbreak, the disappointment… I wept for Claire and for Jamie, too. I truly felt how destroyed Jamie felt while telling Claire everything. And yet, you believed with all your heart, as a reader, that he loves her fully and truly.
Miss Gabaldon, thank you. I just… this is such beauty. If the TV series would last until a 3rd (and more) season, this deserves its own full 15 minutes with no commercial. I already hear it in Sam Heughan‘s voice, sad and breaking and everything. If words destroyed me already, I can only imagine seeing this scene unfold before my eyes.
