Description:

This series begins with an important revelation about the "origin" of one familiar Immortal, and ultimately provides my explanation of the origin and destiny of the Immortal race. And more!

In a sense, it deals with the entire Highlander franchise. I consider it based primarily on Highlander: The Series, because the main characters are Duncan MacLeod and Methos. But the third-most important character is Raven's Nick Wolfe. I mention details that were established in the first Highlander film, and include a mini-novelization of Endgame, with a new perspective and ending. I don't accept anything else as canon - definitely not The Source!

Sixteen of these twenty-two fics were written between 1999 and 2003. "Revelations," "Deathwatch," and "Will o' the Whisper" were written in 2013, the last three fics in 2014. All the recent fics had been planned, in broad outline, for a decade or more.

The ones that work best as standalones are "Absolutely Not," "Awakening" (which was actually the first-written), and "Survivor" (the mini-novelization of Endgame).

Notes:

2/2/15: Since labeling these fics as a series, I've gone through them and made dozens of small improvements. To reconcile inconsistencies...to clarify references that seemed obvious fifteen years ago, but might not be so obvious now...and in one recent fic, to improve a science-fiction idea that didn't initially make sense. It's only now that I'm completely satisfied!
