Outlander: The Standing Stones
This is not your usual "Outlander" story. It was conceived (for the most part) after I read "Outlander" the first time, but never written down. I just knew in mind what I wanted it to be.
A good portion is OC orientated, with Jamie making appearances and then vanishing from the story until he re-appears. When my OC finally gets to Castle Leoch, the characters in the story make their appearances.
I had fun writing this, it was the story I wanted to write, and it's Outlander themed. So far, people seem to like it so maybe I did something right!
Irina is an archaeologist on vacation in Scotland. She discover there is a ring of stones (called a menhir, if you care to learn about such things) outside of town, so she decides to go and explore. What she finds delights her, not only a henge (a stone ring), but remains of tomb mounds and she spends a happy afternoon exploring it. Just before she decides to head back to town, she lays down, unwittingly, in the shadow of a tall stone. She wakes, realizing not only had she fallen asleep, but now she discovers that something is amiss--she may not even be in her own time. Even worse, she can hear the sound of men and horses...and realizes she is trapped and has nowhere to run. Fortunately, she stumbles across a young Highlander named Jamie Fraser who helps her hide.
Together they spend the night in a tomb, but when she finds out that Jamie is on the run, she insists that he leave, and she will act as bait to enable him to make his getaway.
Thank you to everyone who is reading and enjoying this story. When I posted it on FanFiction.net, I'd pretty much given up hope due to the lack of response. If you are enjoying this story, please vote for it. I want to be the top Outlander story on this site. I am working very hard to provide a well written story that is interesting and entertaining. I am very careful regarding grammar and formatting, so I can make it an easily readable one. Thanks.
