The Basics.

Name?: Jill
Location: California
Other sites you’re on: Mostly LJ and a bit of Twitter and Facebook (running the Outlander Watch aspects of LJ/Facebook/Twitter.)
Over or Under 18: Over... yeah.
What's in your LJ? sireesanwar
How often do you post in your LJ?
Lately, not as often as I'd like because I'm so absorbed in Outlander but multiple times a week usually.

Outlander (I’m basing this on the show since not everyone has read the books. If you wish to speak about the books, which you totally should feel free to do, please put anything behind a spoiler cut).

Have you read the books? Yes!
Favourite characters: Jamie, Dougal, Claire, Ian <--That is just Outlander.
What’s your favourite thing about the show so far? The complexity that is really being fleshed out.
What is one thing you wish the show would improve on? More of Jamie's personality so far. I feel like the show has kind of hid a lot of what Jamie is really like in the books. By this point we don't know a lot about Jamie but there is more conversation so you get a sense of his personality and such.
Favourite moments so far: Angus drinking the port. LOL Spanish? I just loved it.
Favourite pairings: Well, I love the great interactions between Jamie and Claire in episode 3 but overall the best interactions have been between Dougal and Claire.

Other fandoms/Non fannish interests.

Other shows you watch, characters you love, pairings you’ll ship till the end of time:
Castle: Castle/Beckett
Once Upon a Time: Regina/Robin, Emma/Killian
Arrow: Oliver/Felicity
Bones: Booth/Bones, Angela/Hodgins
Parenthood
Ressurrection
Sleepy Hollow
Supernatural
The Originals
The Vampire Dairies
Probably more but I can't think of them now.

Favourite movies/musicians/models, etc:
Well, I love too many movies to name but I'm a big fan of the Avenger Superhero worlds right now.
Love Nickleback, Kelly Clarkson, Sugarland, Kenny Chesney, Train... a lot but I don't often talk music.

Other interests:
LJ Art & Layouts
The Pretender - which is long since over as a show but has rebooted as books... Miss Parker/Jarod!!!
Books! I love books!

Anything else you’d like to share with us:
I will take every opportunity to weave Outlander into a conversation. ;-)

Jill aka Jo: SPN: Dean Oh Dearsireesanwar on September 10th, 2014 11:02 pm (UTC)
Hello Dawn from Japan... really cool!

I love Supernatural. The Boys. Boy do I love them. Maybe I have to check out this review stuff.

I love the costumes on the show. I would love to wear all that girl stuff... not sure why but I would.

What is one thing you wish the show would improve on?I would rather they didn't try to draw out scenes just for the purpose of extending the series.

Yes, especially in Rent. WOW.

Gosh I adore Dean. He's my favorite too. I mean I love Sam but Dean is the man.

I agree on all counts on the movies. Wow. Love them all well I haven't seen Blade Runner but everything else I adore.

Oh my gosh... are you me? I'd say the same thing about music. Granted there are many 2 rap songs I love from way back but otherwise no. Folk music bugs me too.

The best thing about LJ is the fact that the friends you make can be almost anywhere. It is amazing.
supernutjapan: rabbit's footsupernutjapan on September 11th, 2014 12:04 am (UTC)
Any Supernatural fan/Dean girl is a friend of mine♡ and Outlander too - even better!

Yes, especially in Rent. WOW. right?! If they are only going to do 16 eps in a season, they have no reason to do this.

If you enjoy the stuff in my blog(s), feel free to friend. I will friend back (no pressure, though ;) )

Jill aka Jo: Misc: Gerard Butlersireesanwar on September 12th, 2014 08:10 pm (UTC)
I know right. Dean and Jamie. Gotta love them.

I agree. I'm so disappointed in this episode but I'm glad that tomorrows episode is bound to be good.

I friended you!

Jill aka Jo: Outlander: Jamie Frasersireesanwar on September 10th, 2014 09:53 pm (UTC)
Hey, Chris! Nice to meet you. And it is pretty awesome you are in Greece. My Great Aunt spends half her time in Greece and I've always wanted to visit her.

I love how strong Claire is. To me it isn't about feminism but reality. Woman can be strong and capable just like men. Doesn't mean all men or women are but it is something they both have in common.

Pride & Prejudice: Darcy/ Lizzie - Oh me too.

Glad to have you around. I read everything I can. I love to read whether it is fantasy, romance, historical, mystery or anything else... I love it. Yeah sometimes the romances are cheesy but if the story is okay... I'll read it.
vanilia & chocolate: geishachrs_vg on September 11th, 2014 08:56 am (UTC)
It's nice to meet you too. If you ever get the chance you should come to Greece!Especially in the summer. There are some really lovely places here.

About Claire and feminism now. Well, she is amazing and a very feminist icon. To me feminism is about reality and Claire is excellent, because she is beautiful, smart, sexy and strong and she shows that a person can have amazing qualities (like is beauty for our patriarchal culture) and still be a feminist icon. I have read a very interesting article about Outlander in the internet which said that it is the feminist answer to the 50 shadows of grey. I can send you the link if i find it again and you are interested, of course.

Darcy/ Lizzie: how can you not love them. They and their love story are like perfect in every single way. I love the adaptations, too <3

Nice to meet you!
Jill aka Josireesanwar on September 12th, 2014 09:03 pm (UTC)
I would love to but I'm not sure I could afford to get from California to NY let alone all the way to Greece. *sigh* Some day. My great aunt shows us pictures. So beautiful.

I'd read it but then to me anything is better than 50 shades so I don't see it as much of a stretch. lol

It is so true. Darcy/Lizzie are just so great.

Favourite characters: I think I don't really have a favorite. I do love Lotte Verbeek as Geillis, as she is Dutch and doing a wicked job, so I'm proud.
What’s your favorite thing about the show so far? It's about a strong woman and a gorgeous man ... way better than Fifty shades ... and it has Celtic stuff. I'm sure I was Celtic in a former life

Hey Denise!

The Netherlands. Pretty cool and of course you'd be proud of Lotte!

I too get stuck in book 5. I tend to listen to that one so I don't have to brush the book off.

See I'm sure I was supposed to be Scottish. LOL

Oh yes, please show us some Jamie. I don't need to see Colum.

I love Game of Thrones and Downton Abbey. They should be coming back soon... one of them at least.
