Methos - End of All Things

The Answer Is always 42!

Pillaged this from kc_anathema

Go into your journal. Find the 42nd entry. Copy, paste, post. This is the meaning of your life.

So here's #42. Seems thinking about Methos and fic is the meaning of my life! Why am I not surprised?

From April of 2006:

What's Normal?

I was talking with Nin before she went to work yesterday about how these new stories I'm writing are different in mood than the Bloodties stories I normally write. It took me a bit to pin it down, but I think the big difference is that these are from the perspective of everyday life. They aren't adventures, no sword fights -- for the most part.

Something that I've thought of from time to time when watching Highlander is what's a normal life for an Immortal? Not all of them are like Duncan, having constant adventures. Every so often you get a glimpse of the other side of the coin. The de Valicourts come to mind most readily. They seem to live a fairly normal life. Or Methos when he tells Duncan that he's been out of the Game for two hundred odd years. I know there are other examples, but I can't recall them off hand. So what's it like to be an Immortal, and have a career, like being a doctor, with mostly mortal friends? Maybe answering that question is what keeps me writing. [shrug]

Yeah, I'm rambling all over the place today, aren't I?


(and there were zero comments on this back then, so maybe I'll do better this time around!)

Japan - Autumn Leaves Geisha

This Is How These Things Happen

Work is so boring, my boss is wandering aimlessly saying he's bored. So of course that means I'm writing. But not working on the WIP because it's too intense for me to be able write here. That needs my undivided attention at home. So instead, I'm writing a Lucia story, a Lucia story featuring Duncan no less! I realized it's been a while since Duncan has appeared in one of my stories, my 'Original Female Child' seems to be becoming a fully fledged character in her own right these days, and I was thinking about her yesterday. So mix that with being at a loose end, and it's fic time!

Hopefully, I'll come up with a title by the time I'm done.
