But in this post, I will write about some of the most popular Outlander fanfiction according to hits received on Archive Of Our Own.

1. Conversations in the Dark
This story is a crossover between Outlander and Scandal.
It takes place in modern times and only uses the original characters.
Jamie Fraser is a famous actor who finds himself on a crossroad in his life.
He wants out of the Hollywood lifestyle and decides to move to Seattle.
There he meets his new neighbor, Claire Beauchamp.
He is immediately drawn to her, and the feeling is mutual.
But they aren’t sure how to combine their lives.
This is a very original story with the characters we love but in whole new situations.
And with over 165,000 hits, it’s one of the most popular stories in this fandom.
2. Dr. B, Medicine Woman
In this story we see a take on Dr. Quinn Medicine woman, but with Claire as the main character.
When Claire moves to a small town in Colorado she meets Jamie.
She is drawn to this quiet and mysterious man.
And it doesn’t take long before she is fully immersed in his family, including caring for three small kids.
This is a very interesting take on both these TV shows.
And the writer really did a great job with it as you can tell from the 122,000 hits this story has already received.
In this story, Claire just started at the Edinburgh Medical School.
There, she finds out that she is pregnant after a wild one night stand during the holidays.
In a twist of fate, she meets Jamie Fraser, a man who is more then willing to love her and her unborn child.
So now Claire only has to figure out what she wants.
The story contains 51 short chapters that all read really easily.
The story is a true slow burn and is worth the wait of every chapter.
4. Modern Glasgow AU
The prompt for this story was a scene where Jamie get’s blind with jealousy.
Jamie and Claire are in attendance at a French court ball.
There Jamie notices a man who keeps glaring at Claire.
And he does not seem to matter that she is married.
Jamie can’t control his jealousy and drags Claire from the dancefloor outside.
But now Jamie has to face her anger at his actions.
This story is part 16 in the “Gotham writes for Imagine Claire & Jamie” series.
So make sure to check out the other parts as well if you enjoyed this.
5. Mint & Thistles
This is another story that takes place in modern times.
Claire finds a new job in Scotland at a Landscaping business.
There she falls in love with her new boss James.
But James is not only her boss, he is married too.
So now Claire has no idea what to do with herself.
She does not want to lose her dream job, but working with someone you love but can’t have is hard.
The story is 33 chapters long and a real slow burn.
It’s ideal for people who are looking for a more modern retelling of Outlander.
6. This Is Us
This is another modern-day story with the characters from Outlander.
Claire and her now ex-husband used a fertility center to go through IVF.
She got pregnant, but as it turned out, the sperm got mixed up, and the baby isn’t his.
The real father is Jamie Fraser, and Claire reaches out to him to let him know.
Neither of them expects it, but they actually fall for each other.
Even though the circustances are strange, they end up as a family.
This is a very romantic story with some lovely writing.
7. Dr. B. II: New Frontier
This is the second part of the Dr. B series.
So you probably want to read the first part before starting this one.
Claire is happy with her new life in 19th-century America.
She and Jamie are happy together, and she loves raising the kids.
But in the town of Colorado Springs, danger lurks around nearly every corner.
And Claire and Jamie face things that will change their lives forever.
This story is 67 chapters long with romance and suspence throughout.
This fanfic has over 68,000 hits showing that it is a story many have enjoyed.
In this fanfic, Claire is taking care of a young patient Fergus.
He has nobody left in this world, so she decides to become his foster parent.
Claire soon finds out that Fergus is very special because the imaginary friend he has turns out to be the ghost of Jamie Fraser.
The story is about love for a partner or a child.
And it really is very lovely to read.
9. Loving Jamie
Claire is sent to live with her uncle when a man attacks her.
She is adamant that the man didn’t touch her, but people are sure she was ruined.
To save her reputation, she is forced to marry Jamie, a mute crofter.
Jamie falls madly in love with her the moment he sees her.
But Claire just wants a man who is good to her and has no expectations of love.
And she is up for a surprise when she gets to know him even better.
This is a slow-burn and very romantic story with all the feels you want from a romance.
10. You’ll Be in Mo Cridhe
This story is a sort of crossover between Outlander and Tarzan.
Claire and her uncle visit the continent of Africa to see gorillas in their natural habitat.
But what she does not expect to find is a grown man living with these giant apes.
Jamie was already grown when a tragedy at sea caused him to live in the jungles of Africa.
He has been living there for years and has lost touch with humans.
But Claire finds him and brings him back in touch with humanity and his true self.
This is a fun take on a classic story.
