I like Lord John Grey, and I bought his infatuation with Jamie in Voyager. I have a hard time buying that Jamie is the love of his life and there can be no other love as Jamie is the only one who will make him happy, though.

There’s a bittersweetness that I like, and LJG’s devotion to Jamie and to those Jamie loves is one of the best examples of unselfish love that exists in the series. But many times I wanted to say okay, LJG, time to move on and find someone else, Jamie is never going to love you the way you want him to love you. Part of this is that LJG is so good that I want him to find some peace and happiness. The other part is I wonder if there is anyone immune to the epicness of Jamie, as people seem to borderline worship him or despise him.
