It amuses me to imagine that Lisette Beaufort (character profile), the French anatomist illustrator in the second season of Mercy Street (official PBS site), is an ancestor of Highlander's Tessa Noel. :-)

The story written for me in the [community profile] hlh_shortcuts exchange has revealed. I think that many of you may enjoy it! Take a look? It's a first-season HL/FK crossover starring Tessa and Natalie. The plot depends on each acting with professional passion and authority. A clever conceit amusingly finesses the crossover.

Summary: Natalie attends an ME convention at a hotel where Tessa is installing a sculpture. Danger. Bonding. Pie.

More like Yuletide than FKFicFest, the HLH_Shortcuts prompt slates seem to be pretty loose suggestions. I didn't specifically request (or imagine) this scenario. All credit to the author for the happy surprise.

Of both series, I do dearly love their first seasons, when motivations were clear and rich, and triumphant possibilities endless. Their first seasons, I rewatch just for fun, just for joy.

[livejournal.com profile] rarewomen, a ficathon for rare women characters in large fandoms (like HL) and all women characters in small fandoms (like FK), has opened nominations (01/07-01/21) for its upcoming game.  Only nominated fandoms and characters will be available for sign-ups (01/25-02/08), so if you're planning to play (stories due 04/30), please pitch in.  (Each player may nominate up to five fandoms, one of which must be "large," and up to five characters per fandom.)

I'm not positive that I'll play, but I'm leaning toward it.  How about you?  In "large" fandoms, a woman character is eligible if she appears in under 20% of the fanfiction.  (Tessa Noel, btw, is tagged in under 2% — yep, two; that's not a typo — of the HL fanfic on AO3. I feel that Tessa epitomizes the "rare" woman character.)

my likely nominations )

At this time, [livejournal.com profile] gehayi has nominated FK, and [livejournal.com profile] karrenia_rune has nominated HL.  None of the other fandoms in which I write are yet nominated, but it is awfully reassuring to see both FK and HL in the mix this early.

Addendum: See the masterlist for the ongoing compilation of nominated fandoms and characters.

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

brightknightie: Duncan and Tessa embrace on the sidewalk. (Other Fandom Highlander)
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.
