Droughtlander became a thing the very first ‘break’ Outlander took between episodes 8 and 9 of the first season. Each break we experience as a fandom seems longer than the last and we all know, this Droughtlander is bound to be the longest of them all. Through no fault of anyone but this blasted virus that has taken the world to a halt.
Our fandom is like a family in many ways. It can be a place we go for support and love, we can sometimes feel alienated by it, we can laugh with one another and we can argue…there is disfunction and there is passion. It becomes what we want it to be, our bubbles become custom made.
This is where I decided, for me, and those who are like-minded, that I felt #TheLOVELANDERProject could help those who wanted to stay connected, do so. Perhaps it will help others in the fandom or new to it – find their people. It can be a way to encourage us to share our stories with one another.
I have started with interviewing members of our community once again, so we can get to know the people behind the accounts we see. I will also be sharing stories of lives that will hopefully bring you some joy, hope and happiness.
I hope you join in. When you find an Outlander story that touches your heart, RT with the hashtag #TheLOVELANDERProject. I’m excited to learn more about the people in this fandom, expand my circle and hopefully spread a little happiness while I am at it.
