That’s fucking amazing!

I adore Roger and Bree and I don’t understand how anyone can dislike Rik and Sophie. They are so cute together and their acting is great. I’d even say they are refreshing compared to Sam and Cait.

I read DG’s books in my twenties and fell in love with Claire and Jamie Fraser. I reread the books for Claire and Jamie Fraser. I watch Outlander for Claire and Jamie Fraser, the characters that Heughan and Balfe brought to life in amazing ways. I root for Jamie and Claire and only Jamie and Claire. I want the adaptation to remain Jamie and Claire centered. I want Jamie and Claire centered promo. Jamie and Claire are the heart and soul of Outlander as with Heughan and Balfe.

Roger and Bree. I never found book Roger or Bree (save for her reunion with her parents) interesting. Rankin and Skelton have zero rapport or charisma, let alone chemistry. They are simply awkward in their roles and yes, this is a criticism. They are actors. Acting is job like any other jobs. You don’t get applauded for not doing your job or for doing a mediocre job. If Rankin and Skelton have a small fraction of what Heughan and Balfe have, they might have made for a more tolerable tv pair. 

Why should fans of Jamie/Sam and Claire/Caitriona be fans of Roger/Rik and Bree/Sophie? Why are Outlander fans expected to lavish similar praise and attention to Roger and Bree? Or care about Rankin and Skelton? Which characters are next in line? Malva, Beardsleys, Tom Christie, Pollyanne, Lizzie, Phaedra, Mayers?

I don’t care if you ship Roger/Bree and Rankin/Skelton. I don’t care if they have bigger roles in book/tv  DOA. I don’t care if you enjoy their storyline (I’m actually glad that they have fans because it would be horrible if they didn’t). I do care if you assume that Rankin and Skelton are even close to what Heughan and Balfe are, or that fans should treat them equally. There simply isn’t anything to compare. Rik Rankin and Sophie Skelton are not, and never will be, Sam Heughan and Caitriona Balfe. 

Heughan and Balfe are Obsessable. Rankin and Skelton are not.
