Methos - Look

I Hate Opening Lines

So the fic that won the smack-down was the sequel to 'He's a Pirate'. I don't know why, but it's just spinning around in my brain. I have a title, 'I Am Going To The West', and a general outline, but it's trying to decide where to to start the blasted thing. Right where the last one ended? Or after lunch? And who gets the first word? I'm not even sure from whose POV the first segment is from. I know the first flashback is from Methos' POV.

Must ponder.

'I Am Going To The West' (01/??)

NOTE: What I have of this story has been heavily revised, and reposted here. So follow the link for the most current version of the story!

When we last left Duncan, Methos, and Charlotte at Mac’s new winery, Duncan was insanely curious as to just how the two knew each other. While I’d intended this to be that story, instead it’s the story of the last time they met. I hope you’ll enjoy it regardless! On the upside, it isn’t a crossover!

Rating: PG15
Notes: A sequel to ‘He’s a Pirate’, The title from a song of the same name by Connie Dover.
Characters: Methos, Duncan MacLeod, Original Characters.
Summary: It’s been a century and a half since Methos and Charlotte last met, and Duncan wants to know all the details.

An 'Echoes the Sea' series summary can be found here.

I Am Going To The West

“If you want my advice, I’d hire Carrie Williams away from Seacrest Vineyards,” Charlotte told Duncan. “She’s an assistant winemaker there; young, but with a lot of promise. As your winemaker, she can bring your label an edge.”

“Do you think she’s up to the challenge?” Duncan asked as he refilled Charlotte and Methos’ wine glasses.

“Absolutely! This winery has so much potential, and Carrie can help you realize it.” She took a sip from her glass. “I almost bought the place back myself.”

“You used to own it?” Methos asked curiously.

“I did. It was part of my landholdings once; I sold it just before Prohibition. It’s good land,” she said with obvious fondness. “I think you’ll be very happy here, Duncan. This is a place where even one of us can grow roots.”

“I think I’d like a few roots,” Duncan admitted, with a smile. “It feels like home already.”
