Jamie Fraser: Your Goddamn Warrior

My awesome niece, Taryn, posted a pretty amusing article on Facebook this morning:

"You Don't Need A Man, You Need A Goddamn Warrior

Well of course I couldn't let that one go. Nope. I immediately thought of only one warrior, the warrior none of us could imagine life without. The warrior who means something different - something awesome - to every single one of us.

So Taryn, if you want a goddamn warrior, look no further. HERE is your goddamn warrior! 😘


  1. AWESOME!!! I would totally say if you needed a backup, Shura would be a good choice too but the original is definitely Jamie Fraser hands down. ;)

    1. Oh HELL Yes! Great point!! When we get "our Shura", I'll definitely make another!!! :)

  2. Just to let people know, Tobias Menzies has been cast as the lead in new TV series The Terror, a 10-episode horror story, set in the 1840's Canadian Arctic, that will air on AMC in 2017. The show is an adaptation of the novel of the same name by Dan Simmons.

  3. Oh yes, I think sometimes we do need a goddamn warrior! Great post btw! Ever since I started reading the books (up to date now) and of course the tv series there is only one word to describe Jaime and now the forever small thought in the back of mind when sticky situations arise...what would Jaime do? Philosophically of course.

  4. James Alexander Malcolm Mackenzie Fraser...enough said...

  5. I followed the link out of curiosity and was surprised to find a perfect depiction of my thirty four(and counting)year marriage. She even got the relationship background right.
    Taryn eloquently described a dynamic I know still baffles most of our family and friends, a dynamic have struggled to verbalize most of my adult life. Would they understand if I told them he would never try to stifle the my WILDNESS? That I would never try to dampen his?
    Maybe this is why I relate do deeply to the story of Jamie and Claire. Like Claire, I am a woman who needs a goddamn warrior...only my Jamies's name is DAN.
