"Because I wanted you." He turned from the window to face me. "More than I ever wanted anything in my life," he added softly. “When I ask my Da how ye know which was the right woman, he told me when the time came, I’d have no doubt. And I didn’t. When I woke in the dark under that tree on the road to Leoch, with you sitting on my chest, cursing me for bleeding to death, I said to myself, ‘Jamie Fraser, for all ye canna see what she looks like, and for all she weighs as much as a good draft horse, this is the woman.’”

(…)

"Ye know," he observed, letting go at last, "you’ve never said it."
"Neither have you."
"I have. The day after we came. I said I wanted you more than anything."
"And I said that loving and wanting weren’t necessarily the same thing," I countered.
He laughed. "Perhaps you’re right, Sassenach."
He smoothed the hair from my face and kissed my brow. "I wanted ye from the first time I saw ye, but I loved ye when you wept in my arms and let me comfort you, that first time at Leoch."

The cast of the new Power Rangers has been announced! Find out more about the upcoming film set for 2016 here.

I thought this was a fancast.

i just woke up my half-asleep brother by running over to his room with my laptop in hand, whisper-shouting “The Power Rangers movie was cast!”… though by the time he yawned his way through “Anyone I know?” the link had loaded… with no new news. …whoops.

An ice bucket challenge. Mine. In a novelty bowtie. On the beach. With Death…

Neil Gaiman donates to ALS, does the ice bucket challenge without wasting water, and gets naked because his wife didn’t.

Well, yes. But I’m not going to mention those things just to get people to watch it. Oh, wait…

 It did not end well.

hi i just finished reading "glass of water" and i was wondering if you're planning on updating anytime soon?
Asketh - Anonymous

Planning to update, yes! Soon… depends on your definition of “soon.”

Let me explain- no, there is too much, let me sum up:

I want to be a writer whose work fanfiction written about and not just a writer of fanfiction. 

And I finally found a story- maybe the story - but one that’s all, all mine, and that I want to be writing all the time. And so I do, when I have make writing time: I’m writing that. 

I still think and dream in fanfiction, but not in the “this is what I most want to be writing” way I once did. I learned and grew from writing fan fiction, and they will always and forever be a separate world from my original fiction, no suspiciously-similar substitutes to be found, though I will say I certainly learned my own themes and favorite tropes (and subverted tropes).

I am working on it on the back-back burner, but every time I get a message of interest or a ye olde review, I try to turn the burner up for a little bit.

Next chapter is a matter of weeks, not months, away by now, though I can’t promise “tonight” or “Tuesday” or even “next Tuesday”! 

Meanwhile, if you like: see snippet from the next chapter here, “Glass of Water” relevant meta here, and a small fic I haven’t posted on my ff.net account because I am too guilty to do so until I have the next chapter ready here

(and for everyone who is not the anyonymous asker above and who might just be thinking “Why a glass of water? What kind of glass of water? The Coldplay song? What fandom is this?”…  my fic is here).

The last time we were all together in the cave was because the Joker wanted it that way. Tonight it’s because I wanted it that way.

I know where we have to go.
