* 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''.

(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.

* EvenEvilHasLovedOnes: Claire realizes this when she sees how devastated Jack Randall is by learning that his younger brother Alexander is dying.



* MamasBabyPapasMaybe: When they meet up in 1769, Brianna and Roger 'handfast' (a traditional old Scottish common-law marriage rite) and have sex. Two days later, Brianna's attempt to get Claire's wedding ring back hits a snag and she is raped by Stephen Bonnet. When she later realizes that she's pregnant, she assumes that the baby is Stephen's, since she and Roger had practiced ''coitus interruptus''. When Brianna tells Claire this, Claire rather dryly remarks that there is a term for people who use that form of birth control: parents.
** Eventually the mystery is cleared up via congenital features and it is revealed that Jem is [[spoiler:Roger's]] son.
