Subject: QOTD for Friday, December 11, 2015 The following quote is taken from Outlander by Diana Gabaldon, chapter 39, MacRannoch. Copyright 1991 by Diana Gabaldon, All Rights Reserved.

     
     
     what was it Sir M arcus cut from your breast? I asked.
A brand? I said softly, as he gave me no reply.
The bright head moved slightly in affirmation.

     A signet, with his initials. Jamie laughed shortly.
Its enough Ill carry his marks for the rest of my life,
without letting him sign me, like a bloody painting.

[> Jamie sounds defiant and angry. At this point I thought he' d be OK in no time. Well, I was very wrong. -- Helka, 07:36:42 12/11/15 Fri

[> I could understand why he wanted to remove BJR's brand, but I could NOT believe he wanted to remove it right then when he was already in so much pain. -- MaryC in KY, 10:43:24 12/11/15 Fri

[> [> Maybe he was still in a kind of shock from the pain and horror. It might have felt like a desperate way to take something back that BJR had tried so hard to break. Helka, your quotes are gut wrenching, but I can't figure out the theme. Or are they just passages that grabbed you? It's been a very thoughtful week. Thank you! -- Kathy in PA, 18:44:14 12/11/15 Fri

[> [> [> I think so too, that Jamie needed to get that brand off to be able to regain his sense of self. My theme is about marks and signets, I'll tell you more at the Saturday's quote. -- Helka, 22:44:00 12/11/15 Fri
