General Fics

Stories focused on the family and the friendly relationships of the characters. Plot-focused stories or light day-in-the-life stories. Pretty much anything that isn't focused on romance.

The Good Student by Sylvia Volk
  • Recommended by Merseburg
  • Synopsis: (Duncan) MacLeod is reunited with a former student while in Paris and receives a philosophical lesson (or three) from Methos.
  • Comments: This fic gets recommended all over the place because it is just that good. It has great characterization and dialogue, and really feels like it could be an actual episode of the series.

The John 21:25 Series

The Methos (and Kronos) Journals by swordznsorcery.
  • Reccommended by Maist
    • Synopsis: Methos and Kronos have had a long and violent life together, for them a great deal of fun. For others, usually far from it. Up until A Drive In The Country everything takes place pre-TV-series and thus has no direct connection with Duncan MacLeod. Operates under the assumption that Methos lies... a lot. Also that he's not even remotely a sweet, innocent. Except sometimes. When he feels like it.
  • Warnings: Loads of violent and horrible deaths, many a victim who didn't deserve it.
  • Comments: Great characterizations, among other things. When we get to the modern days, the writer's descriptions of Methos' living spaces are wonderful and hilarious! There are times when it stretches my belief, such as when our heroes are sometimes denser than rocks. If they weren't, though, they wouldn't get in the situations.

The Fourth Seal by Ziggy Sternenstaub <—Found a working link!
  • Recommended by jyshin2
  • Synopsis: What if Methos had made different choices when Kronos returned? What does an Apocalypse look like? Re-write of Revelation 6:8.
  • Comments: A dark, gritty read with excellent characterization. It's a bleak story overall, so not for people who like happy endings, but it's great writing and well worth the time.

Cross Over Fics

A storyline beginning in one series and crossing over into another.

Don't Disrespect the Queen by Perspicacity
  • Recommended by Phaethon
  • Synopsis: Highlander film crossover with Harry Potter: upon defeating the Kurgan, Connor MacLeod receives more than just telepathy; he also gains the ability to do magic. Coincidentally, Hogwarts is seeking a new Defense instructor.
  • Comments: A strange, surprisingly entertaining piece, if a bit of a Crack Fic. Connor's classroom interactions with Hermione, in particular, are priceless. Departs from Highlander movie canon after the first film.

Death & Betrayal by Marble Glove
  • Recommended by Bdzoke
  • Synopsis: Methos takes a young Severus Snape under his wing.
  • Comments: A wonderful piece that that explains how Snape was able to become a spy on Voldemort, and how much of an impact a reluctant teacher might have on his life. Canon Pairings, no Slash.
