 1 of → ∞ book scenes that I wish could have been fully included in the show.

As Diana Gabaldon herself wisely said: ” …wonderful as the show is—and it _is_ wonderful, not the slightest doubt of that—they only have 16 hours of screen time. They can and do capture the essence of the characters and the shape of the story, but there’s no conceivable way that the show can encompass everything in sixteen hours that I did in 305,000 words.So I thought we might have fun—especially those of you who haven’t yet read the book(s)—looking at a few of the Missing Pieces”

#So no criticism intended with this gif-series.#Yeah, I know the book is the book, the show is the show #Still, there are so many beautiful pieces of dialogue between Jamie and Claire that  obviously give a whole different complexity and depth to their relationship # and even if the show has been great so far, and pretty faithful to the original plot # so much was cut off especially in ep 7/8  # So my point simply is: let’s celebrate and talk about the differences between book & tvshow without feeling overprotective about both # and READ.THE.BOOKS. # seriously guys, you think the show is great? do yourself a favour. read. the books. you’ll not gonna regret it, i promise.

"Removal” lies at the heart of the story we commonly tell about Indians in the nineteenth century. At first glance, removal and the grand project of “civilizing” heathen peoples appear to be opposites. Yet on the deepest level, they were joined—were, indeed, different expressions of the same impulse. For the civilizing process imposed a complete renunciation of traditional lifeways; as such, it was another form, a cultural form, of removal.

You Can Buy Prints Here until October 3rd!

Getting an early jump on Halloween this year, partially because of APE this weekend and partially because I will be spending most of the month away from my studio to visit family in Salem. You’d think spending October in the Halloween capitol of the world would be magical, but I will be avoiding tourists like the plague and spending time in my old haunts, gorging on maple sugar candy and baking pies with the only acceptable baking apple, macintosh. 

Yes. I am an autumn snob. <3

Eeyore is just one of those characters that you wanna scoop up and hug forever.

One awesome thing about Eeyore is that even though he is basically clinically depressed, he still gets invited to participate in adventures and shenanigans with all of his friends. And they never expect him to pretend to feel happy, they just love him anyway, and they never leave him behind or ask him to change.

Oh

oh

And he does feel happy, though. He can be happy. He just doesn’t show it as much as the others do.
There was a whole episode about that - Piglet sees him sitting on a hilltop and thinks he’s sadder than usual, and does all he can to cheer him up. Nothing works and the next day he’s back on the hill, and Piglet apologizes because he thinks in trying to help, he just made him sad again and ”I don’t come here when I’m sad. I come up here because I’m happy.”

There’s just something about that…
