The Question:

Tell us about a book character you’d trade places with.  (Escaping within Pages)

My Answer: 

I would trade places, without a doubt, with Claire (Beauchamp) Randall from Diana Gabaldon’s Outlander. Now, that requires I still know everything she knows, especially all the medical stuff she knows, for which she can attribute as the reason she is eventually accused of being a witch. Otherwise, I’d be a blubbering idiot Jamie is carting around.

BUT I digress….I want to be Claire because…

  1. Jamie. I don’t even need to say any more.
  2. I like time travel.
  3. I would enjoy both the time she lived in (1945 Britain) and the time she travels to (1743 Scotland).
  4. She gets to time travel more than once! She lives two lives in two different centuries!
  5. She’s a badass, plain and simple.

And because I love Outlander so much, here are a few of my favorite quotes! These are all said, of course, by Jamie. 

“I can bear pain myself, he said softly, but I couldna bear yours. That would take more strength than I have.”

“Oh, aye, Sassenach. I am your master . . . and you’re mine. Seems I canna possess your soul without losing my own.”

“For where all love is, the speaking is unnecessary.”

“There are things that I canna tell you, at least not yet. And I’ll ask nothing of ye that ye canna give me. But what I would ask of ye—when you do tell me something, let it be the truth. And I’ll promise ye the same. We have nothing now between us, save—respect, perhaps. And I think that respect has maybe room for secrets, but not for lies. Do ye agree?”

Which character would you trade places with? Leave me a comment with your response and your Friday Follow.
