All the little firsts

I’ve been thinking about all the things that may happen in S4 and I realised that so much of what I am looking forward to are first time moments for Brianna.

The first time she meets her father. The first time she hears his voice and is held in his arms.

Or the first time she sees her mother and father together. So starkly different yet somehow half of one whole, arms wrapped around each other in an unconscious togetherness that they cannot help but inhabit.

Will the Ridge be the first time she has seen her mother treated with genuine affection? The first time she’s seen her kissed with tenderness? Held in love?

Will it be the first time she has seen her mother’s smile reach her eyes? Laugh from her belly? Will she recognise her flowing dresses and her hair wild? The rigid precision of the 20th century nowhere to be found.

Will she recognise her with her arms no longer folded across her body in protection and separation, now finally a woman open and at her ease with herself.

Will it be the first time she’s seen her mother with her hands in the dirt? Contentment and peace seeping from the earth and into her bones.

What will she do when she hears Fergus call her mother Milday for the first time?

And what of herself? What will she do the first time she sees herself in Jamie. Not just her looks, but who she is, how she is?

What will she do when she realises how much her mother gave up for her? What will she do when she realises how much she lost out on and what it means to be brought up in true love.

How long before all of this frightens her?

How long before it feels like home?

First time she has an aunt or an uncle or cousins, first time she sees a place one of her parents grew up and called home, first time she see a father of hers fully support her mother’s life work, first time she realizes she is the keeper of very deep confidences shared by her parents, first time she understands how resourceful and determined her mother is💖💖💖💖

When she actually gets to see her mother hold her grandchild. When she finally has people to tell her stories about how her parents fell in love and what their wedding day was like. When she sees the esteem her parents are held in by others. When she gets jealous of the bond they have with Fergus, Marsali and Wee Ian. When she hears her mother killed Geilis and jumped off a ship to save her father’s stupid arse. The first time Jamie tells her the story of how his own parents met.

The first time she sees him in a kilt 

The first time she sees him holding Germain

The first time he sees her talent for painting 

The moment she hears Jamie calls her mother “Sassenach” and then Mo Nighean Donn and then the moment she realizes he almost never calls her Claire. 

The first time she hears Claire say “you stubborn Scot!” 

The first time she hears him whisper to the horses.

The first time she sees him looking at the photos….

The first time she hears her father referred to as “Himself”

The first time she hears him awakened by a nightmare

The first time she hears Jamie tease Claire about her tangled curls or lack of cooking skills

I also– while its not in Drums but in TFC am so looking forward to her seeing him doing the sword dance. 

Its not in the books but I think in the upcoming season 4, the first time she meets Murtagh and the reason behind his shocked and tender reaction to her.

The first time Bree sees her mother perform 18th century surgery.

The first time she sees her parents inapproriate flirting with each other.

The fascination in Jamie’s face when she tells him about something from the 20th century.

When she mentions that she’s seen her grandmother’s portrait preserved at the National Gallery.

Just the little things that’ll show Bree how much her family and parents were meant to be and how she realizes that that couldve been her life too after all.

Yes! God! All the above!!

Concur, all of the above please.
