    Summary

    Claire Beauchamp is the newest faculty member at Leoch College in upstate New York (USA), following her dreams of a new career after her divorce. She meets Dr. James Fraser, director of Student Academic Support Services, and they spend the 2020-2021 school year navigating the various twists and turns of their own new relationship as the semesters unfold. There's lots of delicious fluff and smut here, with only a wee bit of angst-- nothing of life-and-death proportions.

    This fic followed the 2020-2021 American academic year in real time, but the best part is that there was no Covid-19 in this universe... and just enough drama to add some spice to the story and keep things interesting. We had enough stress in our lives in 2020!! Leoch College is in the Eastern US time zone and updates followed that time zone. Set against the backdrop of the academic year, there are two distinct semester plot arcs, with a wee winter break in between.

    I invite you along for a great escape from the world.

    Summary

    Would you take a second chance on a first love?

    In 1986, Jamie Fraser met Claire Beauchamp while on a skiing holiday in Switzerland. After a whirlwind week together, they head back to their separate lives with a promise to keep in touch. Through circumstances beyond their control, neither could fulfill that promise. Both move on with their lives, but their hearts remain connected, and neither can ever truly let go of their feelings.

    Thirty-two years later in 2018, Claire buys a property in Scotland, only to discover that her next door neighbor is Jamie. Can they look beyond the past and forge a new future together?

    Now and Then offers readers two very different versions of our favorite characters. We see them as young college students, and again as mature adults. I wanted to write a fic with Jamie and Claire at the approximate age that they are now on the show. There are lots of excellent fics showing younger versions of Claire and Jamie, but precious few showing them over forty. You’ll find plenty of spice, moderate angst, no sexual violence or non-con, and as always, a happy ending. The world needs happy endings!!
