Subject: Quote of the Day for Tuesday January 12th 2016

The following quote is taken from Drums of Autumn by Diana Gabaldon,
chapter 9 ‘Two-thirds of a Ghost’. Copyright (c) 1997 by

This is the aftermath of Claire swallowing her silver ring so Bonnet and his henchmen couldn't have it. Jamie made her drink a truly disgusting concoction (see page 182) to make her throw up.


“’Good as new.’ Jamie finished polishing the silver ring on his shirttail and held it up, admiring it in the glow of the lantern.
‘That is somewhat better than can be said of me.’ I replied coldly. I lay in a crumpled heap on the deck, which in spite of the placid current, seemed to be still heaving very slightly under me. ‘You are a grade-A, double-dyed, sadistic fucking bastard, Jamie Fraser!’
He bent over me and smoothed the damp hair off my face.
‘I expect so. If ye feel well enough to call me names, Sassenach, you’ll do. Rest a bit, aye?’ He kissed me gently on the forehead and sat back.”



This whole scene made me laugh, especially the part preceding this where Claire insisted she would wait for the ring to reappear after nature had taken its course and Jamie pointed out the messiness and other disadvantages of that method.
