Added DiffLines:

* {{Omniglot}}: Practically a running gag with the number of people who know multiple languages. Jamie and Lord John are both fluent in English, French, German, Ancient Greek, and Ancient Latin, though Jamie outdoes him with additional fluency in Gaelic, proficiency in Spanish, and being conversational in Cherokee. Roger is fluent in English, Gaelic, Ancient Greek and Ancient Latin; Ian in English, Gaelic, Mohawk and a few other Indian languages; Jenny in English, Gaelic and French; and Claire in English, French, and limited Gaelic(she understands more than she can speak). Fergus, Marsali and their children are implied to be fluent in English, French(from Fergus) and Gaelic(from Marsali). Inverted with Brianna, who apart from English only speaks Gaelic and what is referred to as "bastard(basic) French".

* TheOnlyOneITrust: Brianna goes back to Boston in ''Written'' and tells Joe and Gail Abernathy her plan to find Roger. When Joe asks if there is someone in Scotland that she can trust, she flatly says that ''they'' are the only two people left that she ''knows'' she can trust.

* OverprotectiveDad: Jamie [[spoiler: beats up Roger and sends him to be Indians' slave because he thinks he raped Brianna. (He's mistaken, but his reaction is sort of justified because Brianna had really been raped.)]] Lord John as well, in some regards in ''Echo''.

* OverprotectiveDad: OverprotectiveDad / PapaWolf: Jamie [[spoiler: beats up Roger and sends him to be Indians' slave because he thinks he raped Brianna. (He's mistaken, but his reaction is sort of justified because Brianna had really been raped.)]] Lord John as well, in some regards in ''Echo''. Frank as well, even though he knows he's not Brianna's biological father. In ''Written'', Brianna finds a letter that Frank left for her when she was fifteen, and in it he states that even though he doesn't know whether or not to believe Claire's stories, his investigations have convinced him that Brianna herself could be in danger from people who ''do'', and that he intends to confront and "neutralize" them. Given that Frank was a member of MI6(the British Secret Intelligence Service), Brianna understands he was more than capable of killing someone to keep her safe.

* DidNotDoTheBloodyResearch: Mostly averted. Gabaldon ''did''. And then some. However, only after the first couple of books did she acquire the help of a Gaelic speaker, so there were some early problems in that area, as noted by her in ''The Outlandish Companion''.\\

** Subverted, in that it was answered, but not in-story. WordOfGod says that it was [[spoiler: Jamie]]. The only question is how he got that way.

* IJustWantMyBelovedToBeHappy: Lord John to Jamie. John is deeply in love with Jamie and would like nothing better than for Jamie to return that love, but he knows it is impossible. He instead takes solace from being the recipient of Jamie's true friendship and on several occasions goes out of his way to help Jamie, even though the cost to himself would be scandal at best and possible imprisonment at worst.
