Author: Rachael Sabotini ([livejournal.com profile] wickedwords)
Other info: Duncan/Methos | PG-13 | Death warning | 1200 words
Summary: Four seasons
A/N: This summer, I took several prompts that I was going to write drabbles for. Instead, 4 of the HL ones became triple drabbles and wove themselves into a story for me, based on the seasons of the year. Prompts from [livejournal.com profile] dswdiane, [livejournal.com profile] thepouncer, [livejournal.com profile] anoel, and [livejournal.com profile] lferion are listed at the end of the story. Thank you so much to [livejournal.com profile] elynross and [livejournal.com profile] sherrold for their mad beta skills. All remaining typos are my own.

wickedwords: (vid tv by sherrold)
Vid: Us
Vidded by: Media Cannibals HL collective.
Remastered by: [livejournal.com profile] killabeez
Summary: Duncan reflects on the things that are important to him, and what it all means to his relationship with Methos.
Fandom Highlander
Format: DIVX

Huge thanks to [livejournal.com profile] killabeez who remastered all of these HL vids. I am so sorry that I forgot to post this one for so long. Us was made by the MC HL collective, [livejournal.com profile] feochadn, [livejournal.com profile] gattagrigia, [livejournal.com profile] sherrold and I, back in '98/'99. Part of the reason for us making this vid was that by using a Duncan perspective, we had the whole history of Highlander to choose from, rather than being limited to just the Methos eps (which by this point in time, were becoming significantly over-used. All the big money shots were losing their emotional appeal except to the hardcore HL fan.) So it's a Duncan/Methos vid with very little Methos in it, yet is says a whole heck of a lot about their relationship.

This vid will soon be up on our imeem account if you want to stream it. ETA: Or not. Still hasn't come through yet, and it's been many hours. I will look for another alternative for streaming.

You can download a few other old MC vids using Sandy and my Clucking Belles Vid Site. Hopefully, we'll get around to making some new vids this year, now that chemo and cycling aren't wiping us both out.

Feedback of any sort is always appreciated. Recs, reviews, and concrit welcome.

Last of the month, so I've uploaded the next of the HL vids that Killa remastered for us, Change the Locks. [livejournal.com profile] feochadn, [livejournal.com profile] gattagrigia,[livejournal.com profile] sherrold created this one back in '97/'98. At the time, I think I was just starting to get into HL.

I didn't watch it, but just from the buzz, I want to appologize for the cannibals in this movie. In the back of my mind, I know it's the media cannibals fault. We used the cannibal thing first, and we put the idea out there, that Highlander and Cannibals have a profound connection. And I am so very, very sorry for that.

In return, I link you to this review of the movie. Hopefully that will help with some of the bitter taste left in your mouth.

Again, sorry about the cannibals thing.

I have never been as prolific a writer as I was this year. When I look at my goals from last year -- 6 completed stories, 1 of them over 6000 words -- I had no idea I was being so easy on myself. That felt like a pretty good year. I made a resolution to join a challenge, finish off a WIP, and work on joining into fandom a bit more, instead of sitting by the sidelines.

Then SGA ate my brain. At the time I was working on this meme last year, I though maybe I'd glom onto House fandom, but, uh, yeah. The end result is that I wrote 50+ stories, chapters, and drabbles, including last year's yuletide but excluding this year's yuletide and sga_santa. That is a lot for me. Seriously. When did I become prolific?

In cleaning out my drafts folder on my yahoo account, I came across an HL drabble I wrote in 2001. It's quite pointless, and is dialog-only, which is something I pretty much hate. Obviously, this was a bit I planned to work into a story at some point in time, but as 4 years have passed? Probably not happening.

Still, it's LJ, so here goes:

In chapter 31:

Duncan wakes and fears that the strange, Immortal Moor will catch a returning Rashanal unaware. Unable to bear the thought, he takes matters into his own hands.

And here is my HL story also from the Bystander zine. You know, I should put this up on my website as well. This was the last HL story I wrote, until we posted the DP chapter in december of last year.

and this freaks me. I'm having a fictional crisis. Oh, not a bad one, just one where I fret and putter and stew for a bit. I have to big stories that I need to read again before I can work on them, two collaborations with maygra that need to be picked up and dusted off and worked on, and -- I'm just not into the big tonight. I could work on the next hp thing, too, but I think I need to get three nailed before I head for four. I want...something of middle length. That has a bit of a plot, but isn't an epic. Something doable...

And I have no where to start. What is my flavor of the month? What is it I write again? How does anyone ever think of a plot? Man, the thought of structuring something... *shudder*

So instead of doing any of that, I wrote this. It's HL, and hey, it's 225 words:

Twilight

Brick by brick, the doorway closed. Duncan hung in his chains, the small room around him growing dark. He felt his life bleeding away, the incisions in his body held open, refusing to close. He knew that he could not survive. He would die, and when he awakened, he would be trapped here, entombed in the cold and the dark, his world airless, lacking both water and food.

Already, the light had been reduced to a thin strip. He watched as the gnarled hands slid another brick into place, the darkness almost complete. He didn't speak, and neither did the Watcher who sealed him in; they both knew it was a waste of time.

Sanctuary, they'd said. A way to keep the game alive. A thousand immortals kept safe in their rooms, safe from one another, needing nothing, enjoying their memories and their dreams.

A raft of living dead men, to keep the world alive.

His side throbbed with pain and Duncan watched as the last brick scraped into place, pushing some of the mortar into the room. Three taps on the brick, to make sure it was secure, and then the job was done. The darkness was complete.

He thought he could hear his captor leaving, his gait stiff with time. "Goodbye, Joe," he whispered, as Sanctuary claimed him.

Duncan died.
