'Echoes the Sea' & 'Aces Immortal'  
These stories span the early 18th century through the present day, and encompass several fandoms, depending on the time period: Highlander, Pirates of the Caribbean, Magnificent Seven, and Iron Man. The one constant is the Highlander concept of Immortality, and the series follows several canon and original Immortal characters across the centuries, along with an Immortal Ezra and Maude Standish from Magnificent Seven.

A subset of these stories are part of the Aces Immortal series that I share with strangevisitor7. Those stories I've broken out into their own listing, and you can find them at the bottom of this post.

The Echoes the Sea stories in chronological order:

::The Strangest Places::
::Do No Harm::
::Hand of Fate::

~ The Strangest Places serial. Set in 1761, these stories chronicle the first meetings of Jack, Methos, and Charlotte.
Highlander/Pirates of the Caribbean

::My Guardian Dear:: ~ this is set in the late eighteenth century and deals with the first day of Charlotte's immortality.
Highlander/Pirates of the Caribbean

::Practical Applications:: ~ Tony has plans for Charlotte, and he isn't taking 'no' for an answer. Set approximately two months after the events at the end of 'Iron Man'.
Highlander/Iron Man

::Transformative Variations:: ~ Friendship takes work; being friends with Tony Stark requires danger pay.

Just read all of this, after getting hooked on Charlotte over at strangevisitor7's fic, and it bears repeating, Charlotte is the best OFC I've ever read!

(do your plot bunnies prefer carrots, apples, lettuce, chocolate chip cookies, whatever you need, I'll supply it.)

You already know how much I love this series.

Thanks a ton for this post with the whole arc linked off this page. Love all your arcs. Still hopeful that there'll be fics in the other arcs at some point, but will gorge myself on Charlotte and Methos fics in the meanwhile. Thanks again :)

Thank you for continuing the Queen of Swords series. A native Californian, I fell in love with Disney's Zorro series which inspired a love for non-Anglo California history. My husband and I have visited all 21 mission. My favorite is San Luis Rey in Oceanside which stands against the sky with a road that rises so you see the mission like the early visitors did.
