Hey, I'm looking for a story, where Methos is cheating on Duncan with a man and a woman and decides that he wants to leave because he's unhappy and bored with his life. When he goes to tell Duncan that he's leaving, Duncan asks him about the other two people he's seeing. I think Duncan himself actually ends up leaving him. Could someone please help me out with this?

Hello!

A few weeks ago, I read a fairly short (estimate less than 5k words) highlander fanfic on fanfiction.net or AO3. It is set in the present or slightly in the future of the series - it occurs after Macleod learns of Methos' past.

There are three primary characters: Methos; an old student and/or friend of Methos; and Macleod. The three are together, then Methos leaves and the other two talk. Macleod judgmentally comments on Methos' past. The old student/friend replies or later states that Methos always seems to return to working as a doctor. Mention of Methos' nickname as 'doc' (as used by Byron and apparently others) and the world's loss of one of its best surgeons (neurosurgeon, heart surgeon, something specific).

I really don't remember any particular phrases very well enough to find it through google - I feel I may have accidentally merged parts of two different pieces together to make it more difficult to find what I am looking for. Thank you so much if you know the fanfic, writer, or any clues/hints/ideas that could help me find it. If not, thank you for reading this far, thinking, and helping others find their stories.

They're history in the sense that while the story is technically set "present day" a lot of the story is set in the past. I think my memories come from two different stories, but they may be the same. Who knows at this point? Here's what I remember:

1) The story features the four horsemen and had a female character that rode with them as companion/servant (not Cassandra). At one point, they all commit a final death wish to paper that would be carried out by the survivors. One of them simply wanted a party to end all parties. Kronos's slip said something along the lines of "Avenge me"--which means, of course, that she goes after Duncan. Methos ends up being able to save Macleod by having this woman open up his own last wish which is something along the lines of "let Kronos's killer go" expecting that it would have been him who had killed Kronos.

2) The second possible story has two scenes that I remember (again, I think they're from the same story). In one scene Methos, Macleod, and Joe are meeting with another "unnamed" old immortal to defeat some sort of big bad (perhaps it's the endgame). At the first meeting the stranger refuses a drink from Joe. Based on this Joe concludes that this is Hammurabi because there's something in there about not killing your host. I also seem to recall that Hammurabi had Methos thrown into the water to drown for adulterous behavior (this is just mentioned not described). The other scene that I remember is Duncan going into an alley to fight an older immortal. I believe the stranger carried some sort of non-traditional sword like a scimitar or something. Whatever the case, Methos forces him to wipe down the blade because he is known for using poison on his blade as a way of winning challenges.

I haven't read anything Highlander in years so I may be conflating stories and plots, but of the ten stories or so I remember, these scenes stand out to me. Any help?

I'm in the middle of reading 'Seduction of the Desert Prince' (And, oh my God, Seduction of the Desert Prince is no longer a WIP, it's complete, 220k of awesome, I need to buy a lottery ticket. *ahem*) and I find myself craving a long dirty weekend with my ex-fandom.

I want to read some stories that have Methos in some way confronting or dealing with his history as Death or what he did as a Horseman.

Any suggestions?

I´ve recently rekindled my love for Highlander and really would like the complete works of Tes.
Although I´v copied some of her work from livejournal a long time ago I´m missing a few chapters here and there because I was in a hurry and didn´t double check.
It seems her AO3 account is devoid of fic´s even the long one´s.
If someone knows of another place where I kind find her work or perhaps has a copy I would really love to get my hands on it.

A friend recommended a Highlander/Sentinel crossover to me called Circle of the chosen by Sharon Cross but I can't find it online. Does anyone have a copy or know a location?

Or, maybe it's one I started to write, lol.

Methos (being the tortured thing he is in fanon), takes a bad Quickening, or something traumatic happens, becomes Adam Pierson. He completely suppresses his Immortal identity. He only recognizes Joe as a fellow Watcher, and McLeod as his Immortal. Maybe pre-amnesia, he and McLeod were lovers?

I searched AO3 and didn't find anything. I'm x-posting this to my journal just in case.

In all honesty, I don't remember if I read this or it's one of my wild-ass stories I never finished.

Sound familiar, anyone?

Anyone?

Bueller?

p.s. LJ's lovely interface won't let me add tags. Ah, reform, Russian-style.

Hey, hi. First time here, it's been a while since I did HL.

I'm looking for any stories where Immortals are known and Methos is being experimented on in a medical/scientific fashion. There's one in particular - Methos is going by the name Ben Adam and a group of immies are being held.

The specific story I'm looking for, I'm not sure about the details. I may be confusing several stories. I'm pretty sure it was a crossover with Next Generation TS, and Duncan and Methos were found drifting in a damaged ship. They had died many times(?) and each time they woke they crawled closer to one another(?) and maybe there was something with Guinan(?)

I hope that's enough for someone to recognize it. Thank you, everyone.

It's been years since I read Highlander fic and now I'm going back and revisiting some of my old favorites but I was reading in this fandom way before I kept links or copies of adored fic. I've found many of them but one is totally eluding me. It's set during World War II and it has newly met Duncan and Methos fleeing from the Nazis with (I believe) some children. There's also a period (I think) when they're adrift at sea and they might even die a few times of dehydration - this bit is a little iffy. I believe there's also bubonic plague involved somewhere. *G*

Any assistance locating this illusive critter will be muchly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
