brightknightie: Tessa working with a chisel tool at her desk in the barge (Other Fandom HL Tessa)

I wrote "When Everything was New" for [livejournal.com profile] hl_flashfic's "Second Banana" event, to the prompt: "Alexa meets Tessa at an art show."  I'd written HL in multi-fandom games before, and just because, but this was my first attempt in an HL-specific venue.

Thanks to [personal profile] sholio and [livejournal.com profile] skieswideopen for beta-reading!

Available: The Ficathon | My Fansite | The AO3
Length: ~4,800 words
Date: HL_FlashFic 08/12/11
Rating: PG
Characters:   Tessa, Duncan, Alexa, Martin Sorrel, uncredited cameos
Summary: Tessa exhibits in the juried division of the 1986 Seacouver Art & Wine festival.
Quotation: "Tessa hesitated. Pressing for public reaction was rarely wise; and, usually, she was content with her own assessment and Duncan’s, other critics be hanged. But she remained unsure where her efforts fit at this festival, if they fit at all."

Enjoying Recent HL Gen

I don't talk about it as often, but I am very much a Highlander fan, too.  These days, I read HL mostly via the [livejournal.com profile] hl_flash bulletin.  Here are some gen pieces from there that I've enjoyed recently:

  • "Fight Another Day" by [personal profile] sholio (PG, ~1K words, Duncan and Methos and Amanda).  Duncan loses a hand (as Xavier St. Cloud did) and holds on to his honor.

  • "Watcher" by [personal profile] elistaire (G, 320 words, Joe, implied Duncan/Tessa).  It's the '80s.  As Joe watches Duncan, he also gets to know Tessa.

  • "Next Time, Buy a Ferrari" by [archiveofourown.org profile] medie (PG, ~2K words, Methos and Connor and Heather, implied Connor/Heather).  What if Methos, rather than Ramirez, had taught Connor?

  • "Convent Mouse" by [personal profile] elistaire (G, ~2K words, original character, Methos, implied Methos/Alexa).  This predator and this prey... are both survivors.

  • "Spring" by [livejournal.com profile] devohoneybee (G, 69 words, Methos).  A poem.
brightknightie: Charlie stands and Duncan sits on the dojo steps (Other Fandom HL Charlie)

This is the Highlander story that I wrote for the Summer 2010 [livejournal.com profile] oldschoolfic event.  My thanks to [livejournal.com profile] karrenia_rune for the prompt, and to [personal profile] batdina for the beta-reading.  (As always, constructive criticism is welcome.)

I'd never written Charlie DeSalvo before, and I'm not sure that I'd ever read a story from Charlie's perspective, either.  When I looked for screenshots from which to make an icon to go with this story on the ficathon, I found only half a dozen unique images of Charlie on the entire Internet.  It's curious.  He really is a significant character, if not as significant as some.

  •   Title: "Present Company" (also on AO3)
  •   Length: ~2,900 words
  •   Date: July 2010
  •   Rating: PG
 •  Characters:   Starring Charlie.  Also with Richie, Randi, Duncan and Joe.
  •   Summary: Charlie has a lot on his mind when Duncan finally returns to Seacouver.
 •  Quotation: "Charlie thought again about legitimate reasons that a stranger might have popped up like this -- and about how very little he wanted to end up charged with assault -- but the weight in the man's right hand inside his pocket skewed the odds."

[Back-posted]

This is the Highlander story I contributed to the December 2008 [livejournal.com profile] oldschoolfic ficathon.  My thanks to Dragonsinger for her prompt of "Richie never expected that his first Christmas with Duncan and Tessa would involve a swordfight," and to Batdina and Wiliqueen for beta-reading.
