i know my dirk headcanons arent very consistent but i think my biggest one is that he looks like a horse. like his nose is really long and kind of..stout(??????????????????????)and he has really bad posture so hes always leaning forward and whenever hes sulking around out of the corner of your eye youll think you see a horse but no its just dirk
I joked with some friends that they should make McCree more mobile by giving him a summonable horse as an ability, and it was just a fucking joke, but that is straight up an actual ability in the Overwatch rip-off Paladins.
rules: use the same sim for both sides, try to do the same type of hairstyles and make up styles on both sides, if u know what I mean (please refrain from using clarified hair, as it’s a mixture of both alpha and mm), try to make everything different, not just hair; things like skin overlay, make up, eyebrows, and eyes (clothing doesn’t really need to be changed, unless you’re doing a full body thing), and tag #alphavsmm

Jamie had been in Edinburgh for nearly three weeks. Fergus
was perfectly capable of arranging for the printing press to be placed into
storage but Jamie was adamant that he needed to be there to see that ‘she’ was
Claire, now rather heavily pregnant, had decided to stay at
Lallybroch rather than attempt the journey, much to Jamie’s evident relief.
“I’ll miss ye dreadfully Sassenach, but it willna take more
than a month I shouldna think. Once she is safely stored I will ride like the Devil
himself to get back to ye.”
He had promised and Claire had waved him off with a cheerful
intonation not to get stabbed, arrested or shot on his travels.
“At least try not to!”
“I make no promises, but aye, I’ll try!”
Jamie had grinned, blowing her a kiss.
They had received no letters from either Jamie or Fergus
over the weeks but whilst Claire longed to hear from her husband, she consoled herself
that no news was most definitely good news!
Claire was in Jamie’s study reading one morning when she
heard her name being called rather urgently from the hall and the sound of
“Mrs Claire! Mrs Claire!”
She smiled and slowly, for there was no other way for her to
do it, stood up. Rabbie McNab’s eldest boy, Ben, had been completely
overwhelmed when informed that he could call Himself’s wife by her first name
rather than ‘Mrs Fraser’ and though he had tried to accommodate her request,
Mrs Claire was the closest he seemed able to get without blushing furiously.
“Ben! I’m in Jam … Himself’s study!”
“Mrs Claire there is a …”
“Ben, don’t shout through the door, come in!”
“Ah … Mrs Claire my boots my get mud on the carpet…”
Claire rolled her eyes and made her way toward the door
herself. Though she reasoned that Ben had only been into the study once to the
best of her knowledge, after him and another lad, whose name Claire could not
remember had been caught raiding Jenny’s strawberry patch. She supposed that
the experience had left him with a healthy dose of respect and caution
regarding what might happen when summoned to the Lairds study.
Opening the door she looked down at his freckled face, eyes
lit with excitement and smiled
“What is it, Ben?”
“I think Himself is home, Mrs Claire! My Da spotted a rider
just like him in the distance and riding fast from the look of it.”
Claire beamed and her hands flew to her hair, patting at the
strands and curls that had escaped her pins that morning.
“Should I ask Mrs Murray to set out some breakfast?”
Ben asked, having delivered his message he was now clearly
eager to be dashing off on the next errand.
“Yes, please do. And Ben, thank you for coming to find me so
swiftly, you really are an excellent messenger.”
The boy’s cheeks flushed with praise and he bobbed his head
shyly, mumbling a thank you before tearing off to the kitchen.
Claire hurried, as best she could, to her bedroom and
hastily fixed her hair and pinched a little colour into her cheeks, it was daft
she knew, but she wanted Jamie to come home to her in a suitable state, not
looking frazzled and pale and as though she was about to burst out of her
dress. The dress she could do little about, the babe was growing bigger by the
day and Jenny had altered Claire’s dresses as much as she could without
butchering them completely but the fabric still strained in places.
“You haven’t changed much in three weeks Beauchamp! Stop
Claire admonished herself and took a deep breath to steady
It was the first little separation they’d had since her
return. Three weeks wasn’t that long and Claire had certainly had enough to
keep herself busy but she couldn’t deny that there had been a tight little knot
of anxiety in her chest since Jamie had been gone and she would feel better
once he was home. Claire needed to know that he would return, to know that he
could return, and that they would not be lost to each other again.
She exhaled slowly and resolved not to throw herself at her
husband too wildly the second his boots touched Lallybroch earth.
Claire made her way downstairs and stepped out into the
courtyard. She could hear hoof beats and her heart hammered in rhythm. She
smoothed the front of her dress and lifted her chin as the horse nosed around the
bend in the road.
Sunlight glinted from auburn hair, sending shoots of ruby
and copper dancing through the lengths which caught on the breeze. Slanted blue
eyes, widened and a full lipped mouth curved into a delighted smile at the
sight of Claire.
Brianna dismounted before the horse had fully stopped and
staggered towards Claire, tears already streaming down her face.
“Bree? Oh my God! BREE!”
Claire lunged forward and grasped her daughter, pulling her
close. They clung to each other, crying and laughing at once, their embrace as
tight as it could be considering Claire’s belly between them. Finally, Claire
thrust Brianna back to look at her properly.
“What are you doing here? Are you alright?”
“There was a fire …
there will be a fire … in America …”
Bree shook her head to clear the jumble of thoughts and
wiped her sleeve under her nose. Claire dashed her own sleeve across her cheeks
and sniffed heavily.
“Mama, are you … you’re pregnant?”
Brianna’s eyes had widened further and Claire touched her
swollen belly self-consciously.
“I am. It wasn’t planned. I mean, of course I’m happy but it
… we …”
Claire closed her eyes and squeezed Brianna’s hand tightly
in her own.
“Later. We can talk about this later, I want to hear about
Brianna looked as if she would far rather hear about her
mother’s pregnancy but obligingly filled Claire in on what she had found and
what had prompted her to come through the stones. As she spoke, Claire watched
her face and felt love envelope her heart so tightly she felt like she could
She had always seen Bree’s similarity to her father, anyone
could see it, but having Bree here … Claire swallowed heavily.
“So I guess at some point you and … ah … Jamie will move to
Brianna spread her hands before her and shrugged.
“We haven’t got any plans to but …”
Claire waved the consideration away
“I am so, so glad you are here, baby. I have missed you so
“I missed you too Mama. Is he here? Jamie?”
Claire’s hand flew to her mouth. She had been so caught up
in her own joy of seeing Brianna she had not even thought about Jamie meeting
“He’s in Edinburgh at the moment, actually someone thought
you were him and told me he was home.”
Claire couldn’t tell if Bree looked more relieved or
“Meeting you will mean the world to him, Bree.”
Bree smiled slightly but a small frown still creased her
“Mama, I don’t want to … you and Jamie … I don’t want to
intrude. I just wanted to warn you and make sure you’re safe and I’ve done that.
If you think I should go…”
Claire felt guilt stab at her. That she had left Brianna
with any doubt about just how much Jamie had loved her, had wanted her, right
from the start was a terrible oversight on her part and one that she intended
to fix immediately.
“Bree, you’re our child. You are my child! Of course I don’t
want you to go and Jamie … Jamie will be delighted to meet you. I have told him
so much about you, he wanted to know everything!”
This time the relief in her voice was so obvious
“Of course he did and now you are here. This is your place
as much as it is mine, Brianna.”
Claire stroked a thumb over her daughter’s high left
cheekbone and cupped her cheek gently.
