argentum_ls: Methos (Methos)
I've gotten out of the habit of posting about the stories I've received here, so I guess there's no time like the new year to see if I can reclaim the habit.

Sooo....

Highlander Shortcuts

Of the two exchanges I joined this winter, this one opened first.

My gift is the fantastic:

Like New (LJ link) - Methos is definitely not a new Immortal, but Richie doesn't know that and Methos isn't about to tell him.


The author is currently anon, though I think I know who it is [tumblr.com profile] flukeoftheuniverse.

Comments: A super fun scenario that lets us revisit Richie when he was a brand new Immortal and "meet" Methos when he was still firmly Adam Pierson and invested in keeping it that way. One of the issues I had with the later seasons of HL is that Richie and Methos never got any real on-screen time together, and this story nicely shows how it could have happened. It is canon divergent (which is always fine by me), yet not so much so that it disrupts anything that happens on the show. I think my favorite part of the story is that Richie gets to step up and be the one in charge and, while it doesn't work out the way he thinks it should, he's not punished for that, either by the other characters or the narrative.

Yuletide

And we have a second winner with a Supergirl story:

You're My Freak (AO3 link) - Four times that Kara using her powers nearly gave Alex a heart attack and the one time Alex asked her to use them.


The author is currently anon, but I definitely know who it is. (Hi, Tig!) [personal profile] tptigger

Comments: Sister love! It's a story of pure sister love. The five scenarios in the story start shortly after Kara comes to Earth and take us through different situations where she's learning to use her powers, with mixed results. Each scenario is focused on Kara and Alex, though other Danvers and some OCs show up to move things along. There's really nothing about this story not to love. Each scenario is sweet and fun with great sister banter. My favorite scenario is the last one, but all are important to the arc of the story.

Hi Exchange-fic Writer!

It's been a long time since I've had involvement in Highlander fandom, so I'm really excited about this exchange. I haven't read a lot of HL fanfic in years, so anything you write is going to be a refreshing change of pace.

Long-winded post explaining how easy I am to please )

I'm really looking forward to the story you write for me. Above all else, I hope you write a story that you enjoy writing, so don't feel like you're locked into the ideas I've included. Thanks for participating!
