Main Characters




Author's View of Fanfiction

Gabaldon is well know for her hatred of fanfiction, and requests that fan writers do not use her characters in their fanworks. This is ironic since the character of Jamie Fraser, she has openly admitted was inspired by another character from an established media franchise, Jamie McCrimmon from Doctor Who.
