You know what gives me hope? You’re latest post garnered thoughtful comments from known shippers and anti-shippers alike. So happy that people can be civil and adults about OL. Maybe now, we can proceed with one voice asking for change with production? They might not listen to 20 people, but how about 2,000? :-)

Really? I don’t pay attention to all shippers and there are certainly many around here who are not shippers and/or closet shippers. I definitely don’t waste my time on anti-shippers. They love to mock my posts, or so I have been told since I blocked all of the identifiable ones. But if my post generates dialogues, that’s definitely a plus. 

Since there is still confusion over my opinion so let me clear it up. Sex doesn’t equal nudity. Intimacy doesn’t equal nudity. As such, intimacy and sex can be portrayed without nudity. One only has to look at previous Outlander episode to get the meaning of this. The campfire scene for instance, where Jamie was intent on pleasuring Claire — both actors were fully clothed yet it is the most erotic scene in Outlander. 

For those imagining that I want naked Jamie and Claire, or that I am chomping at the bits for Caitriona to do a full frontal – you might want to turn your gaze inward and engage some introspection. 

As for production, it’s a lost cause. It’s not about giving up, it’s about screaming into the void. MBR, MD and TG have no interest in listening to fans who care about the show and who have constructive criticism. They are invested in making certain that they dangle potential sex between Jamie and Claire in Season 5 to hook existing viewers from leaving and reel new ones in. They are committed to selling Brogerlander while promoting Outlander. They are more interested in defending the indefensible – their poor adaptation choices for Season 4, which undermined Jamie and Claire Fraser and removed any trace of Outlander, the show that once upon a time, was Obsessable.
