I’m completely new to this fandom, I came across Outlander totally by accident in August….was actually trying to find Poldark and that shirtless Aiden Turner scene ha ha!! Saw a few articles on Outlander’s Season 2 finale & how gut-wrenching it was & thought that was the same show so ended up googling the wrong thing but was intrigued by the story line & being Irish, loved that Cait was too.
Literally hooked from the beginning and binged watched the whole two seasons in like a week…..and have pretty much re-watched both seasons about twenty times or more!! With all shows I watch, I always want certain characters to be together and have shipped so many of them over the years and live for their chemistry. And I always love finding out if the actors are together in real life or not (most aren’t) but just even just watching their friendship & fun chemistry off screen is enough for me.
With these two however I was like there is no doubt they are together after watching some of their early interviews, I was going in blind, this was before reading anything about these two or searching shipper blogs but I was like its so obvious, they are adorable with one another so I starting watching literally every interview I could find of them and that just seemed to back it up!!
I was already on Tumblr for other things but just started with this blog recently (thought about time) but when I first discovered Outlander, I followed a lot of blogs, the obvious most popular ones that were suggested…..I soon began to learn that there were two sides, those that don’t believe they are couple and those that do or at the very least wished/hoped they are/will be, didn’t bother me initially, was like I’m here for them and Outlander but I quickly began to see the hate and name calling and total utter disgraceful behaviour on blogs and all of which were the ones claiming they are not a couple…..Anti’s/truthers/idiots….whatever you want to call them!!. That’s fine if that’s your belief but why waste so much energy and time spreading this much hate on a daily basis…..it baffles me??
There is so much horrific things happening in the world right now and thank my lucky stars I get to wake up every morning, healthy & happy & the worst thing about my day is going to work (which I actually do enjoy)!! I’m not getting executed, raped, tortured, I’m not risking my life and my children’s crossing seas facing death to escape a hell worse off. Yes I have issues that are relevant to me but I make the choice every day whether I’m going to be happy or not & I chose to look on these Tumblr blogs because I am lucky enough to have access to a computer and the internet…..sounds crazy to us but there are sooooo many who don’t get to experience this luxury at all and we do on a daily basis & when I do it’s always fun, and spreading happiness about the chemistry of two people (doesn’t matter whether they are fictional characters or real) or whether they are in a relationship off-screen……everyone on these shipper blogs agree on definitely one thing which is the insane chemistry and fun these two have!!
To be honest I think it’s crazier to start blogs and fan wars over fictional characters who don’t exist and never will so all arguments are kinda pointless in that regard because its not REAL. To see two real people who exist in reality and have crazy chemistry that not only fans but cast, crew and the media have all picked up on & to want them to be together……that’s crazy??? Ugh so confused. I really wish those Anti’s would put their truth seeking expertise to actual use and determine if there really is a god or an afterlife or if gentlemen really do prefer blondes???
Anyways just wanted to say, I love this ship whether it’s a reality or not….who knows except for Sam & Cait, I still ship them because I believe they should be together, I don’t know them, prob never will but hey I don’t know god and never will and plenty of peeps believe in him, I aint starting no blogs hating on all things religious & calling people who do believe crazy just cos I don’t believe….each to their own……you can’t police people’s minds!! Onwards and upwards I say!!
