Droughtlander is an especially difficult time for “Outlander” fans. But, there is one thing that the fans can do, and many have apparently tried. Composer and actor Lin-Manuel Miranda’s wife is also a fan, and he recently shared a picture of her obsession with the show.

The main plot of the TV series revolves around a 19th century nurse Claire (Caitriona Balfe) travelling back in time through a stone henge at Craigh Na Dun. In the 1700s she meets the love of her life Jamie (Sam Heughan). The books and the show are so addicting that some fans try to travel back through time every time they see a henge.

Miranda’s wife too has the habit of trying to meet Jamie, every time she see a henge. The composer shared a picture of his wife [see below] trying her luck at a henge.

“Every time we pass a damn henge my wife tries to Outlander her way to Jamie-land, give it up lady,” Miranda joked.

The post got a response from the official Twitter pages of the show and Sony, cast members Heughan and Balfe, and even the author of the books series Diana Gabaldon.

“Lady has remarkable taste,” Heughan said. Balfe on the other hand joked that she is ready to sell Jamie for a few Hamilton tickets. “Give her my regards,” Gabaldon said.

“Outlander” TV series Music Composer Bear McCreary also weighed in on the post. He pointed out that the magic only works when the stone henge is accompanied by “swelling strings and a bagpipe solo.”

The post also got the fans excited. Many of the fans shared their own pictures, of them trying to travel back in time to look for their Jamie. As of this writing the post has more than 38,000 likes on Twitter and over 2,000 retweets.
