I agree with Lisa SF. I prefer the term "re-kilt" as it is unique to the OBC and includes all Outlander-related stories/books. I also like the description of our LJ re-kilts as the LJ Readalong. 😀

I realized after I posted that stock was intended as an article of clothing, but especially along with the other suggestions, I was thinking more of lock, stock and barrel - which is to say, weapons.  I agree that we all just seem to use rekilt in general for the Outlander universe, but if we wanted to be specific, re-LJ still feels least awkward to me, but that doesn't mean we can't have fun with wordplay. 😊

"Re-kilt" is specific to the OBC?  I hadn't realized. 🙂 

"Lock, stock, and barrel" -- sheesh, that slipped by me, too.  🙁

In terms of word play, "Re-LJ," when I say it quickly, kinda sounds like "Real J" -- which is rather appropriate for the dissection, analysis, and interpretation of the stories in which he is the protagonist that we are currently reading!  😁

Bluesnow, that's interesting.  

Leslie, I had great fun with the word play.  Thanks for bringing the thread back.

I must say, dear members, that I do think that "re-kilt" is applicable to LJ stories as well.  The LJ books are part of the series, as DG sees it, so it makes sense.  We've had a time trying to find a word that doesn't sound awkward.  Just saying.  Whatever everyone decides is fine with me.  I vote for "re-kilt!"  :)

It's fun to speculate, but I think it would be simpler if we stick to re-kilt for all Outlander books, especially when considering the Scottish prisoner, which has both LJ and Jamie, and the larger books beyond ECHO, where LJ is now a main character - otherwise, when would we use LJ's term only and when would we use re-kilt?

I like the idea of re- kilt.... it covers ALL the books and is widely known.... and fun to share with those who don't know yet!!
