Angsty catnip!! I lurv me some early marriage angst. Mayhaps a slight canon divergence? I know Jamie and Claire had a disagreement after Fort William, but that couldn’t have been all. What if they have another disagreement/heated discussion about something? He’s still learning to compromise and hasn’t quite mastered it yet.

Here we go again, round 2! I’m really loving these wee gems… (but I can’t seem to fix my master list whatever I do. So some of the links are wrong…and I’m sorry, but they won’t save the URL that I copy and paste, no matter how much I re-find the RIGHT ones and paste them in. Technology, eh!)


You can find my first ‘fic-off’ HERE and @takemeawaytocamelot‘s HERE <3 


“…and then he said she did this wee thing wi’ her mouth!”

Claire heard the men sniggering as she rounded the corner, her arms filled with dry wood for hers and Jamie’s evening fire. Rupert, Angus, Willie and Auld Alec were stood around the smithy’s iron, swigging whisky and chuckling at some unfortunate lassie’s sexual advances.
Rolling her eyes, she steered away from the men without showing herself. 
If she’d simply walked away, she would never have caught the tail end of their blethering. But as it was, she lingered for just a moment too long. 

“Weel, lads, she’s got a sharp tongue, Mistress *Fraser*, but according to young Jamie she kens how to use it between the sheets –and between his thighs.” 

Angus’s bawdy voice rang out over the others causing Claire to stop in her tracks, her jaw dropping at the lewdness of their conversation. The realisation hit her sharply in the chest. She knew Jamie was a little naive in the ways of matrimony, his actions after Fort William had made that *painfully* clear, but she never though him crude enough to discuss their private liaisons with the Mackenzie men.

Her cheeks burned with combined embarrassment and rage as she stomped back towards their quarters, her anger boiling steadily beneath the surface. 

Those private moments were meant to be just that, private.

Obviously her inexperienced husband needed a lesson in discretion.


The evening passed by at an awfully slow pace as Claire stoked the fire in their Leoch room.

As the flames rose, so did her ire.

How *dare* he, she thought irritably, prodding the already torched logs.

By the time the door slid open she had worked herself into quite a lather.

“Sassenach! Ye willna believe it, aye? I…” Jamie paused, noting Claire’s less than impressed expression. “Are ye alright, Claire? Ye looked fair fashed?” He questioned, the words slipping softly from his tongue as if to soothe a mad beast rather than his usually calm wife.

“I don’t know, Jamie. I wouldn’t want to unleash my –sharp tongue– on you, would I?” Claire seethed, almost spitting the words through her gritted teeth.

Jamie gulped, his eyes widening at her tone.

Damn Rupert and his stash of Colum’s rhenish, he cursed, wringing his hands together as he took one cautious step towards Claire.

Mo nighean, please…I didna mean…”

“What, Jamie!? You didn’t mean to divulge intimate details of our wedding night to Dougal’s men?!” She yelled, her eyes alight with fury as she threw the scorching poker against the stone slabs of the fireplace. “Have you ever heard the phrase –loose lips sink ships– Jamie? Because I’ll bloody tell you something for nothing! You had better be wary of the tales you drunkenly tell your *less than considerate* friends.”

“I’m s–”

“…and don’t you dare say that you’re sorry, James Fraser. How do you think it feels to overhear half of Clan Mackenzie gossiping over our sex life?”

Tapping her foot erratically, Claire finally paused to allow Jamie time to speak.

The silence stretched on as Jamie’s mind went completely blank. Angus and Rupert had obviously planned this, he realised belatedly. They weren’t malicious, the pair of them, but they were nosey and he’d played right into their greedy hands.

“I ken ye dinna wish to hear it, Claire, but I am sae sorry. I didna think–”

“No, you’re right. You didn’t *think*.” she cut in again, picking the blanket from their bed and throwing it in his direction. “Maybe you’ll be more considerate after *another* night in the dog house.”

Scrunching his brow together in confusion, he just about caught the plaid in his arms as he stumbled back, caught off guard by its weight.

“Claire, a ghràdh…please…”

With one look she silenced him, her sharp gaze causing him to swiftly shut his mouth.

“If you know what’s good for you, you’ll keep quiet,” she growled as she turned her back on him, “otherwise I’ll throw you out completely. I’m sure Mrs Fitz has room for a large Scot on her kitchen floor!”

At this Jamie watched, once again, as Claire slid under the thick duvet that rested on their large bed, dragged the covers up over her shoulders and turned herself away from him.

Curling himself up on the hearth, Jamie settled himself for another uncomfortable night, his mind abuzz with numerous ways to win back his favour with Claire.

This time it might be more difficult, he concluded, truly abashed by his flapping gums. Running his fingers through the ash that lay by his hands on the tepid slab, he traced patterns into the fine dust, recreating the soft lines of Claire’s face as he dropped in and out of slumber.

In the end he dozed off with one singular thought; this marriage business truly was hard work. But for Claire, he would try his level best. If that meant crawling through rose bushes with the sharpest thorns, he would do it, anything to make it up to her.

Come morning, he surmised, he would expend all of his energy trying put it right.

Eris the 10th Planet thru the Houses, Where in Life Do You Feel “Left Out”?

Discovered in 2005, from plates found in 2003, Eris is a Trans-Neptunian Object, which is an astronomical term meaning further out than Neptune. She was named a dwarf planet along with Pluto. She was Planet X, then nicknamed Xena, then officially named after the brother of Ares/Mars, the goddess of discord.

Eris entered Aries in 1923 and will not enter Taurus until 2048, so almost everyone alive right now has Eris in Aries, therefore making the house of Eris more personal to you. It takes 556 years for Eris to orbit the sun.

“Eris is one who struggles against injustice and oppression. She has her war-like and even bloodthirsty side, with the higher manifestation of defending the weak and standing up for oneself. Her placement and aspects to other planets correlate to the archetype of the underdog warrior, speaking truth to power, and with also a willingness to resort to violence if necessary. Many manifestations of this archetype exist in the present culture, and the discovery period is also coincident with the onset of the Iraq war. This archetype represents a dire motif of the struggle for survival that is inherent in the natural world, and in humankind also, and which represents once again, as with Pluto and Chiron, a darker side of our common humanity that must be acknowledged and faced in our time. Where she located in your chart, you have the capability to make a powerful and perhaps ruthless stand for yourself, and to battle against all odds.” –Time Passages Software

Eris in the 1st house: Your presence is so radical that you don’t fit in with most people. You boldly state your opinions and you might even get a thrill from causing trouble between people. You are a brave fighter full of strength. You thrive on conflict as it propels you to feel alive. You prefer revolution over tradition. You crave discord and excitement as opposed to trying to find peace in life. You feel doldrums when life is too calm, you always feel the need to take on challenges.

Eris in the 2nd house: You resist the current system of economy and want to rebel against being dependent on money, you’re the person who is cut out for growing their own food and/or living off the grid. You feel a drive in your soul to not be materially attached, even if you might have other factors in your chart that indicate a tendency to splurge on possessions. You value sticking up for the underdog, fighting injustice, and living passionately.

Eris in the 3rd house: The school system made you feel boxed in; your learning style might not grasp academic lessons, but is able to absorb information when you are allowed to learn on your own. You didn’t get all the attention from teachers that would have helped you excel in the classroom, so rather, you reject commands of busy work assignments and find brilliance by doing projects your own way. You may have been made to feel dumb because you could not meet standards that other students could, yet the chaos in your mind brings ideas together when you are given freedom to learn at your own pace.

Eris in the 4th house: Your family made you feel like the odd one out, they did not sympathize with you during hard times. You had to break away from traditions and find yourself. The universe gives you permission to shamelessly reject what your parents taught you, as they may not have had the most well rounded perspective when they raised you. They likely treated you with injustice and made you feel oppressed.

Eris in the 5th house: Your idea of fun is different than those around you, so it may have been difficult to find comradery (feeling of a connected community) until you found a group of people with a common interest. Your hobbies are seen as strange, compared to typical activities that most people enjoy. Your children may have a discordant temperament. Your romantic life is filled with chaos.

Eris in the 6th house: You don’t fit in at most workplaces, you resist being subordinate to a boss. You feel oppressed by the daily grind and wish to find a more exciting job. You’d do well in an action packed vocation that allows you to be a maverick. You feel like you weren’t given a fair shot in the workforce and may excel more if you become self-employed. Your health will decline when you act discordant.

Eris in the 7th house: Relationships always seem to end up in flames in your life, which includes business partnerships, lovers, close friends, etc. You wonder why can’t I just find that special someone and make it last? You attract discordant people. Perhaps you haven’t worked through all the chaos within you and so you project others as being difficult. If you make a point to cultivate inner peace while acknowledging your own inner wild self, you will draw in the right people who do not provoke you too much.

Eris in the 8th house: Deep in your soul lies discordance that you need to embrace and understand. You desire a crazy sex life to let out inhibitions your chaotic emotions that you don’t get to release in other areas in life.

Eris in the 9th house: You feel that religion has oppressed you, you do not resonate with the faith you were raised with and it is up to you to explore spirituality in many forms to find your own truths. Traveling alone would be very therapeutic to you. You love the idea of higher learning, but the structure of college doesn’t agree with you. You experience injustice in the college setting.

Eris in the 10th house: Your discordant nature makes it difficult to achieve your career goals. You’d excel in a career that involves helping others who have been left out, for example, special education, infertility, adoption agencies, counseling, addiction, women’s or men’s rights advocacy, etc. You are resistant to bosses that expect you to be subordinate, you have to fight to achieve the goals and jobs that suit you.

Eris in the 11th house: No matter how many friends you have, you still feel like they don’t include you in their lives as much as you’d like. You feel like a lone wolf, you don’t fully fit in with most groups. If you find friends who appreciate your uniqueness, you’ll feel fulfilled. Make it a point to seek non-judgmental, open, and understanding people, and you can allow yourself to grow close to people who matter. You can heal from any previous friends who betrayed you or any times you felt like you had no one to reach out to.

Eris in the 12th house: You subconsciously want to be alone in order to dig deep into your spiritual self. You have sabotaged relationships and opportunities because you hadn’t worked thru your inner baggage. Your soul has likely existed on other planets as you feel estranged from this world in general. You can journey through other dimensions because your chaotic spirit endlessly searches for more. You are fighting a battle in your psyche, as Eris triggered the Trojan war. Your chaotic nature has been suppressed, as you realize that too many people in this world cannot handle you.

Question, my sister's in the hiz-house discord and she's a bit confused on the new rule on the 'joking insults'. She's the one that affectionately tells people to fight her and she's asked for clarification but the answer she got wasn't very clear and she's too intimidated by Makorie to ask again. She's too worried that she'll end up kicked or with a warning if she tries to joke around like she has before. I hate seeing her anxious like this and I was wondering if you could maybe explain better?

Hi there, sorry to hear that’s happening! I unfortunately am not on Discord enough to be very familiar with the rules and each server is actually fan-run, not run by Ethan, G, or I. While we didn’t select the mods of each server, we do trust their decision-making skills and hope it makes for a comfortable, smooth experience for everyone in the community!

I’d reach out to another community member for clarification if you’re unsure about anything!

Sorry I can’t be of more help - I’ll try to stop by more often and familiarize myself with the rules as well!

2 MONTHS LATER WOOPS

I HAVE NOT READ IT DOUBLE WOOPS

I’ve heard sorting characters in a series into Harry Potter houses can bring discord, chaos, opinions, conflict, controversy, divide

BRING IT

As a disclaimer, the accuracy of this is probably not as accurate as it could be; I’ve only watched the first and last two Harry Potters, so I really don’t quite understand it and my sortings and assumptions and inferences are solely based on what I’ve read online about it (and doing Pottermore myself) (apparently I’m Hufflepuff)

AS YOU CAN SEE in the picture above, I have:

  • Gryfindor: Azusa
  • Hufflepuff: Yui and Mugi
  • Ravenclaw: Mio
  • Slytherin: Ritsu

I’m sure already someone somewhere is like “WHAT NO SHE BELONGS IN THIS” and “WHAT IS KIM ON THIS IS SO OFF”

These are the basic understandings of the houses that I have, so keep that in mind as we proceed:

  • Gryfindor values bravery
  • Ravenclaw values knowledge
  • Hufflepuff values harmony and hard work
  • Slytherin are dicks (ambition/achievement through cunning actions)

So let’s take this apart as per my brain enjoy friends:
