Outlandish Dictionary

On December 12, 2013 by Outlander Addiction

Being a HUGE Outlander fan myself, I really get a kick out of finding “portmanteau” words, or words that might not exist in the dictionary, but that any Outlander fan would appreciate. Here’s a short list found in and around Outlander fandome (with a couple stemming from my own brain). Have any others? Would love to hear them! Please post your suggestions in the comments section.

  • I just spit out my coffee!!! Let’s see if I’ve learned anything today….

    From one Obsessenach to another, I really need a ginja Jamilicious to Jamieme. Then we would have a Clairebration that would be Outlandone and hopefully offer some outlanticipation between now and this summer. I’ve been such a cracklander for so long that I’ve written about my desire for shipping with JAMMF…http://cellulitelooksbettertan.wordpress.com/2014/01/13/407/
