Deicsions, Decisions  
Trying to decide something for the fic I'm currently writing that involves the existence of Immortals. Care to share your two cents?

ETA: should have clarified that the story in question is my current WIP and part 60 odd of my current series. So my question is based on the background of past stories. Sorry I didn't make that clear.


Spoilers for CA II below.

At the end of the movie, all of SHIELDS files are dumped on the internet. so I have choices to make. Do I let the existence of Immortals be a part of the info dump or not? If yes, it would have far reaching consequences in my universe, and I'm not sure if I want to go there or not.

What do you think? As a Highlander fan, would you like a world where the existence of Immortals was public knowledge? Or would you prefer them to remain hidden?

If I do go there, there would be a matter of degree. For example, Methos' current identity would be public, but there would be no tie back to Methos.

Trying to decide is what's bogging down the muse -- at least currently.

For me with a crossover, which an MCU/Highlander story would be, it would depend on how the Immortals have already covertly been being integrated. Have science and magic been being treated as the same thing, the way the writers of the Thor films have had some characters talk about them rather than being treated as two separate things? By extension have Highlander Immortals been treated more as magic, or more as aliens from the planet Zeist? I like my Aesir and Highlander Immortals to be magic. Plus, there's also the question, are the Watchers an independent organization in the crossover, or have they been folded into SHIELD? The amount of information SHIELD has to leak about Immortals is gonna be dependent on how much they know in the first place. Plus, how much of the SHIELD data dump people actually believe will vary. Sure the Battle of New York made some people more aware of a "bigger universe" but even some of those people will work hard to ignore as much of that stuff as possible. It'll be like Methos said in Finale, "It'll be filed away with alien abductions and Elvis sightings," to those people. It's complicated.

Sorry, I should of clarified I was asking in regards to my current series. But thank you for taking the time to reply. I didn't think anyone would respond and forgot to make my post more specific.

Aaaah. Wasn't sure if you were asking in regards to your current series, or if you were starting something new from CA:WS so I tried to hedge. Thanks for clarifying.

But thank you for taking the time to reply.

You're welcome.
