Written for the following [livejournal.com profile] comment_fic prompt: "Highlander, Methos (+ author's choice), when the apocalypse happens, immortals of a certain age fare better than all others". Went slightly sideways on me again.

Title: Sadhana
Rating: PG-13
Fandom: Highlander
Characters/Pairings: Methos, Cassandra, mention of Kronos. Methos & Cassandra
Summary: "When Olympus fell, it was the Titans who rode forth once more." In the aftermath of a nuclear apocalypse, it was the immortals, the old monsters, who emerged as the kings and warlords of the new era. Not all of them still want to play by those rules, though. Just because the world was bombed back to the Bronze Age doesn't mean they have to forget all the ages in between
Wordcount: 1337
Warnings/Notes: Post-Apocalypse, Post-Nuclear War, war, conquest, survival, enemies-to-allies, random philosophising

For a prompt on [livejournal.com profile] comment_fic. Yes, I will cheerfully cross Methos with anything, though this one fits really well, I think. Heh.

Title: Ka, Akh, Ren
Rating: PG
Fandom: Highlander the Series, the Mummy trilogy
Characters/Pairings: Methos, Evie, Rick, Jonathan. Rick/Evie, maybe a hint of potential Methos/Jonathan
Summary: In their defence, the dead man they shot woke up again almost immediately. In their further defence, that didn't normally happen, even in Egypt, so they could be excused some mildly violent curiosity on the subject, couldn't they?
Wordcount: 2825
Warnings/Notes: Set not long after the end of the first Mummy movie. Warnings for bullets, resurrection, and a shaky grasp of Egyptian mythology -_-;

For today's [livejournal.com profile] comment_fic theme. All 6 or 12 word ficlets. Um. Mostly 12.

Discworld, Vetinari, Ticking Clock

Irregularity is a state of mind. He doesn't flinch at disordered time.

Fairy Tales, Ariel/Cinderella, Shattered Glass Slippers

Ariel's limp worsens. Ella kneels, to slip whole glass onto tortured feet.

Highlander, Methos, Ultimate Pragmatist

"We eat our enemies' life-force, MacLeod. Cannibalism will hardly damn us faster."

MCU, Natasha, Truth

Truth isn't complicated, it's just rare.

Star Trek: TOS, Scotty, Working Miracles

Physics be damned, he's got God's own cheat sheet. Her name's Enterprise.

The Musketeers, Athos/d'Artagnan, Wanting

He's been burned by want before. D'Artagnan is too impetuous to care.

Over on [livejournal.com profile] comment_fic, [livejournal.com profile] ammcj062 just left me a Highlander fill for the prompt: "We are to them as passing shadows". It's really short, Joe considering Methos, and it's awesome!
For the [livejournal.com profile] comment_fic theme: 6 word fics.

Highlander, Methos, brother:

"I'm sorry. My name was Cain."

Jeeves & Wooster, Bertie, morning:

"Good grief. 7am? What appalling nonsense!"

Hannibal, Will/Hannibal, role reversal:

"I thought I'd feed you lies."

Rise of the Guardians, Pitch, dark and cold:

Dark and cold. And still alone.

Any, Any, Dragons:

The mountains dream. Then, they wake.

The Great Mouse Detective, Basil/Ratigan, intelligence:

In memory, in tribute, a gift - Basil, the world's greatest criminal mind. (Double feature, 12 words)

Tron Legacy, Clu 2.0, strategy:

In a perfect world, it worked.

Arsenic and Old Lace, Mortimer Brewster/Dr Einstein, something new:

"A new face?!"

"For our wedding."

Highlander, Methos, playing the long game and winning:

"And the first shall be last."

Person of Interest, any, Steampunk AU:

"You're Nemo," John realised.

"Harold, usually."

Any, Any, sacrifice:

"You'd be free."

"You'd be dead."

Any, Any scientist, dead and gone:

"Old Brown ..."

"Don't start with me."

Any, Any, eternal:

Mountains rise and fall. Stone remembers.

The Mummy movies, Imhotep/Anck-su-namun, faithful:

"Forever will not be long enough."

Dexter, Dexter, guilt:

Place the blame, playing Harry's game.
For a prompt on [livejournal.com profile] comment_fic. I've only seen the anime version of Baccano!, but that was more than sufficient for Claire to make an impression, really -_-;

Title: Music for a Solitary Dancer
Rating: R
Fandom: Highlander, Baccano!
Characters/Pairings: Claire Stanfield, random original HL immortal
Summary: A Highlander-style immortal tries to challenge Claire Stanfield in a train yard, under the mistaken impression that he's another immortal. This goes about as well for said immortal as it has for any other immortal. Or, indeed, anyone else at all
Wordcount: 523
Warnings/Notes: For those who know Baccano!, Claire Stanfield. For everyone else, violence

Just something that has been bugging me, lately. Where did the idea of Methos the invincible, godlike ancient badass come from?

From this meme. Posting here as they're completed:

Methos & Nikola Tesla (Highlander/Sanctuary), for [livejournal.com profile] oneiriad

Crowley & John Marcone (Good Omens/Dresden Files), for anonymous

Crowley & Tony Stark (Good Omens/Avengers movievers), for [livejournal.com profile] nihstel (only tiny, this one, for some reason)

JARVIS/TARDIS (Avengers movieverse/Doctor Who), for [livejournal.com profile] laeria (turned into a ficlet on me instead)

Nick Fury & J'onn J'onzz (Avengers movieverse/DC comics), for [livejournal.com profile] sablin27

Tony Stark & Harold Finch (Avengers movieverse/Person of Interest), for [livejournal.com profile] marbleglove

Crowley & Vimes (Good Omens/Discworld), for [livejournal.com profile] subsequent

Nanny Ogg & Queen Mab (Discworld/Dresden Files), for [livejournal.com profile] ciaranbochna
I was idly thinking about Highlander/Dresden Files crossovers, since apparently I'm in the mood to cross Methos into the Dresden Files universe. I've done Methos meets Michael Carpenter, Methos and The Archive across the aeons, and now Methos trolling the White Council, and I was idly wondering who else I'd like to see him encounter in the DF 'verse. *grins faintly*

The first two thoughts that popped into my head were him meeting:
a) Butters, because Methos dealing with Butters' resigned "For gods sake, I've had enough damned necromancy, can't you people pick a different morgue?" would be hilarious, and they could probably have some interesting discussions on medicine for the fantastic
and b) Murphy and Kincaid, because Methos on holiday in Hawaii finding himself in the middle of whatever made a romantic getaway between Murph and the Hellhould 'interesting' would, again, be damned funny (and kinda awesome).

The one I wouldn't want him to meet is Morgan, because that would end badly for him. Morgan is his equal in combat pragmatism (the man nuked a skinwalker when it became apparent that he couldn't beat it the old-fashioned way), his superior in power and range (got within yards of the Red King, was willing and possibly able to take on a zombie T-rex), and has exactly the kind of rigid morality to make any honest interaction between them fraught with danger. Of course, Methos could always lie to him, but generally speaking Morgan is exactly the kind of trouble Methos goes out of his way to avoid borrowing.

But, anyway! While I'm busy thinking of crossover encounters, why not a quick meme:

Give me two characters from different fandoms you know I'm familiar with, and I'll give you a dialogue happening between the two of them. Without justifying how the crossover would work, how their worlds clashed, or how they could even meet each other. Just a silly crossover conversation with no backstory, for fun.
Because I'm obviously in a cracky mood tonight, and for some reason I can never get enough of Methos making fools of people via ancient languages -_-;

Title: The Practical Applications of Linguistics
Rating: PG
Fandom: Dresden Files/Highlander - the series
Characters/Pairings: Harry Dresden, Peter Matthews (Methos), Ivy (the Archive), Arthur Langtry (the Merlin), Rashid (the Gatekeeper)
Summary: Peter Matthews (Methos) gives the White Council a language lesson, much to Harry Dresden's amusement
Wordcount: 726
Warnings/Notes: Crack, crackety crack. Language abuse
Disclaimer: Not mine

For [livejournal.com profile] comment_fic. *shrugs sheepishly* And it's me, with Highlander, so dark, yes? (Though on this one, you can also blame the prompter some little bit).

Title: Matthew 20:16
Rating: R
Fandom: Highlander the series
Characters/Pairings: Methos, Duncan. Methos & Duncan
Summary: The Highlander and the Old Man fight. In truth, this time. No second chances

icarus_chained: gorgeous! (nebula)

*blinks* I hadn't realised, but apparently Highlander (well, Methos) is the largest of my non-main-phase fandoms. I'm just running through for the transfer to AO3, and I'm kinda surprised by exactly how many random bits of HL fic I've lying around. *blinks* Apparently, when I said I had a tendancy to cross HL with everything ... I kinda wasn't kidding -_-;

Short thing. For a prompt by [livejournal.com profile] marbleglove over on [livejournal.com profile] comment_fic, who wanted Methos and the Archive.

1. Write down the names of ten characters.
2. Write a fic of fifty words or less for each prompt, using the characters determined by the numbers. Do NOT read the prompts before you do Step 1.

1 - Nathan Stark (Eureka)
2 - Duke Crocker (Haven)
3 - Harold Finch (Person of Interest)
4 - Amanda Darieux (Highlander)
5 - Nikola Tesla (Sanctuary)
6 - Illya Kuryakin (Man From UNCLE)
7 - Jack Vincennes (LA Confidential movieverse)
8 - James Norrington (Pirates of the Caribbean)
9 - Pepper Potts (Iron Man movieverse)
10 - Cho Hakkai (Saiyuki)

A/N: Ficlets are definitely NOT under 50 words long. *sheepish* Length varies, but none of them are quite that short. Because I have control problems, obviously -_-; Also, I'm trying out some new fandoms, and some old ones I've never written in before/haven't written in a while, so. You know. Warning for shaky writing ahoy!

On the subject of me views of Duncan Macleod as a character, and in particular (and sorta accidentally) his interactions with Methos:

icarus_chained: gorgeous! (nebula)
( Jan. 30th, 2012 07:46 pm)
It seems, whenever I can't write, when no other muse at all will speak to me, either Methos or Crowley will step in. *shrugs, smiles faintly* I've no idea why.

Though, I can't guarantee quality -_-; I think there's something vaguely hysterical about this, for some reason ... *shrugs sheepishly* There's always something wonky about my Methos fics.

Title: First
Rating: R (for violence, mostly)
Fandom: Highlander
Characters/Pairings: Methos. Mentions of Duncan, Joe, a few others in passing
Summary: Who was the first immortal you killed? What was the first head you took?
Wordcount: 2416
Warnings: Fairly graphic violence, and Methos waxing philosphical (and depressing)
Disclaimer: Not mine. Possibly thankfully -_-;

First )
Something that floated up. Writing Gabriel for the meme possibly prompted it. Set in the same universe, I think, as this ficlet, wherein SPN Death is Methos' father.

Title: First Death
Rating: PG-13
Fandoms: Supernatural, Highlander
Characters/Pairings: Gabriel, Methos, mention of Death
Summary: An ancient immortal guides an archangel through his first death
Wordcount: 803
Warnings/Notes: Set following SPN 5x19 (I've no idea what, if anything, S6 did with Gabriel). Post-series for Highlander, I think
Disclaimer: Neither are mine
