* NamesTheSame: Geillis Duncan, a Scotswoman, shares her name with a real Scottish historical figure who was also accused of witchcraft. Her confession under torture in 1590 naming other women as accomplices helped usher in British witch trials.

* FriendlyFandoms: With ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire''/''Series/GameOfThrones'', thanks to Gabaldon and Creator/GeorgeRRMartin being good friends and fans of each other's work, plus Martin's outrage at the show's lack of Emmy success even while his own was having its biggest night ever at the awards.

* BaseBreakingCharacter: Claire's character in the TV adaptation has become subject to this, as one section of fans complain about her attitude and her personality which is portrayed differently from that of Book Claire. It doesn't help that she's 'mothering' Jamie and telling him what to do half the time in the STARZ series, either. However, there are other fans who accept Claire as she is in the TV series and don't pass judgement on her behaviour.

* BaseBreaker: Frank. Part of the fandom thinks he's a victim of tragic circumstances and sympathise completely with him; another part hates him and considers him selfish and a {{Jerkass}} for everything he did to Claire during their twenty-year marriage. And then there are the fans who don't feel either way about him and those who like him but acknowledge his flaws.

* MoralEventHorizon: In backstory, Jack Randall crosses this when he is revealed to have tortured and raped Alex MacGregor, causing MacGregor to suicide. During the main plot, readers first see just how twisted he is in the Wentworth scene, when he rapes and tortures Jamie Fraser.

** Jamie, mostly because of the (in)famous strapping scene. Some fans condemn him for beating Claire, while others accept his reasons for it and like him for his personality and his actions/decisions in other book scenes.

----* TheWoobie: As of season 2? Frank. He has lost the wife he deeply loves for two year, refusing to believe that she left him for another man. When she gets back, she is firmly out of love with him, treats him coldly and Frank has to learn she's been another man's wife (and is pregnant by him). As a result, he stumbles out of the room and destroys everything in another room in clear grief and emotional anguish. It's very, very hard not to feel bad for the guy whose only crime seems to be not being a hunky Scotsman from the past.
