Be grateful. Soon, my friends…we shall have – #NaughtLander!

Swooning Fanlanders every where. WHAT SHALL WE DO?…………….. That’s what I’m afraid of!

We have ONE…count ’em ONE episode of our obsession left.

The only thing that makes this GIF better is if the ice cream was whisky flavoured

The only thing that would make this GIF better  – the ice cream is whisky flavoured.

There are a number of fans spending their time with their panties in bunches, (my advice…take those suckers off if they are giving you such a hassle). There is another segment having more than debates about cast members being shown or not shown love and appreciation from the powers that be, ( A little dose of reality here…what we see online or hear in blurbs in one hour podcasts or in small panels, yes, compared to 24 hour days, 7 day weeks and 30 day months and 12 month years…a few hours of panels that are made available to us-  are heartbeats in these individuals lives- are NOT reality. We have zero clue as to what in fact goes on in their LIVES. Do not claim to have an idea of how they are treated, validated or appreciated by their peers.  It is insulting- because, we’re not there.). Lifting us ALL UP TOGETHER, gatherings of fans in the UK which turned out to be like, the best gathering ever…making, you know…the rest of us super jealous. Which is always a great look. I happen to be stunning in green.

If Ron D. Moore says it, it’s gotta be true right??

As far as I am concerned…for every 2 ughs….ONE WHOOHOO…simply cancels ANY the others out. Period. End of story. FINITO!

you-know-im-rightIt seems to be, in this day and age…common sense is like a superpower.  Which brings me to a post I read today.  Diana Gabaldon is surely my newest superhero.  I sure as hell hope she has a cape somewhere…OH! Wait…never mind…SHE DOES! She has LOTS of capes!  Like one for EVERY occasion!

Diana posted something on her FB today that was again, thought provoking & full of common sense.  You know…her super power.  Every fan should read it AND take it for what it is. I will not reiterate what she said. I will  just say DITTO!

common

Before people call me a sheep for blindly following what Diana says, you know. It’s not like that. Sometimes folks, we simply happen to have a genuine respect for people who happen to deserve said respect. Let’s say, their capabilities and their art. When that happens, we don’t bother with being negative and trying to take anything away from them.  We go about our life with an infinite gratitude for the people in it that have these abilities.

It is not niavity, it is not foolishness, it is not blind following. It is called respect, gratitude & acceptance.  It is called living our life differently than other who choose to live theirs in a different way.  We ain’t knockin down anyone else’s door, don’t knock down ours…It’s happens to be a matter of kindness as well.

Kindness...yes....it looks like this. We LOVE a lil kindness

Kindness…yes….it looks like this. We LOVE a lil kindness

Yes, We happen to do the same for those who create the show.  WE CHOOSE, to see the best in it, not to be an armchair critic.We allow the professionals to do their thing the way they see fit…and ENJOY it.  Even the parts that some others CHOOSE not to find enjoyable.  Does this make sense?

If ya can’t quote a classic cartoon, who can ya quote???

We don’t have episodes we hated & ones we loved.  We have episodes we loved and ones we loved the most. We have ones we watched a dozen times & ones we watched 3. See…that’s us.  It’s all a matter of perception isn’t it? We have fans who will wax poetic over Tobias & drool over him. Switch directions, same is true for Sam…and we are equal opportunity…we ALL love Caitriona. We tend to think she is the most stunning and talented actress out there.  Our biased opinions on Tobias & Sam don’t stop at their looks naturally.  Anyone argues talent, depth, humour…well we might have a problem.tumblr_inline_n2zoj0rWFK1rg0g8s

Perceive from the positive. Always Assume Positive Intent & We will get along JUST fine.

Now…after the final episode airs…

we will wait…we will wait a long time. We will be #WithOutlander.

Fans will get restless. The crazy will start to creep over the line…others will play jump rope with the line for funzies…hell…some might start doing lines…with the line. Bringing a WHOLE new meaning to #Cracklanders.  The truth is, there is no stopping it.  Don’t try.

You know...before it begins...

You know…before it begins…BAH…don’t even bother…like don’t.

The ONLY thing we can do…is the best version of ourselves.  Try our best NOT to get sucked into any drama. That is always our choice.  My Mom (may she be partying wherever she is…I never understood this resting stuff) used to say “No one can MAKE you do anything.”

Can’t make me. I say!

There will be casting announcements.  We already got one…thanks to Maril Davis (who happens to be my favourite producer…I think it’s her hair & sass)

maril

Bouton…Awwwwwww…I hear the pup is a Diva.  *snort*  Can’t wait to see this lil chewbacca in action. There will be contests, photos from the set & interviews, & comicons.

This is our time to stick together my friends. Lift each other up. Entertain one another.  ENJOY one another.  As one of our wonderfully positive ABOotlanders said, we will have lots of time to enjoy the creative genius that this fandom has! Lady Raven! Julia LeBlanc! aka girlfrog.tumblr! Loverdove Productions! Beth Wesson! Keetin Marchi! These are just a few to keep you busy. #WATCHTHISSPACE because we will keep you entertained with ideas & fun with other Outlander POSITIVE fans during #NaughtLander.

Remember…When a negative hits your feed – come back with 2 positives.  It’s up to us to keep our world a HAPPY & WONDERFUL place.

Should be easy since we a bunch of happy & wonderful people right?

The Blogburst for To Ransom A Man’s Soul AKA TRAMS- (oh…dear) will take a bit of time, as it will be a delicate matter to find the balance betwixt my ummmm nature and the nature of the show.  Don’t you worry though. I WILL do it.  I did it for #WentworthPrison. I will do it for #TRAMS

Catch ya on the flipside

So many bad jokes...why?

I don’t even understand why she keeps including me…

SL…the ABOotiest of the ABootlanders

  1. She includes you because [in a deep voice] you’re BATMAN!
    Will keep the light on & watch for your post as always. XX BTW loved Diana’s Twitlonger post from today. I’m thinking that’s the same as she shared on FB.

  2. Aww Bouton. Such a sweet little face with soulful eyes. Don’t forget that in addition to all you lovely, funny, talented people providing us with good stuff to gobble up during the wait for season 2, we also have the awesome cast, crew and production team who keep us informed and enlightened about the daily goings on during filming. We couldn’t ask for a more generous group of people making this show. Well…we could but how stupid would that be?
