With Hands In His Pockets
The lure of Immortal presence teased at Duncan’s senses as he carried his two bags of groceries down the Rue de St. Germain.

For Taz.
This is some old school D/M.

Of Demons In The Dry Well - tb_ll57 - Highlander: The Series [Archive of Our Own]
'Something happened.' Joe's voice ran dry at the end of the word, and he followed the statement with a long pause. Alert to that tone after so many years, Mac sat up straight, his muscles tensing, but something stayed his tongue, and he didn't press.'Mac,' Joe said, and repeated it again, as if working himself up to it. 'Mac, it's... it was a short fight. Ambush, really. His Watcher got it on tape.'Some part of him registered the 'he', relieved only to eliminate Amanda. 'Who, Joe.'
'One of those young bucks who crops up every once in a while, a hunter. We'd tracked him through a couple dozen kills, lost him for a while in Russia. He turned up in Paris about two weeks ago--'

There is Nothing Without Time by filenotch (Highlander / Supernatural)
Summary: It split open at the blade, opening like the iris of a cat, the edges of the figure blurring into the swirl at the outside, a vortex that Methos fell into with the force of his sword thrust, a ring of laughter in his ears. "I banish you!" Methos finds himself in a world where Immortals never existed, one where all the myths in all the books he's ever read are real. The demon Ahriman has followed him, and Castiel, the living embodiment of all those myths, wants it sent back, and Methos with it. But how do you vanquish an enemy in a dimension where neither of you exists? The answer lies somewhere beneath the weight of knowledge Methos carries with him, somewhere in the memories of every Immortal that ever lived, but it will take Castiel to find the one that holds the key: the memories of Duncan MacLeod. Castiel will force Methos to face down that death--and in return, Methos will show Castiel that there is something very different between knowing and understanding.

"Oh God, you found Carolyn's book," Duncan said, sounding at least five hundred times less mortified than Methos had hoped.

"Sedimental Journey" by Taselby
"A chance encounter with a young turk of an Immortal leaves Methos morbid and unanchored. Restlessly wandering, he finds himself at Mac's door, hoping to find some way to anchor himself in the warmth and security of the familiar."

There's a graceful ponderousness to the prose, simultaneous timelessness and attention to the flow of time, a sense of detachment, and it's absolutely beautiful. Pairing is partly one-sided/unrequited.

Unalienable by Basingstoke (Highlander/X-Men, Methos/Duncan, 65 600 words)
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.

//[via Inna] Immortals are mutants. Methos wakes up after kidnapping and 6 years of amnesia and ends up at Westchester. The writing style is quite spare/abrupt(?) but I kept reading to find out what happens and enjoyed the story.

"The Trouble With Poets" by anoel
This fandom is making me like vids. I need to start bookmarking them :)

Love the song. Need to re-watch to figure out more what the vid is saying, but there's lots of delicious conflict and Methos's darkness (especially in the quick cuts) and his frequently destructive relationships.

"Sacred Trust" by Lanning
Duncan and Methos' relationship is in ruins, but things can always get worse. And they do.

Elsewhere described as "Darius' past comes back to bite everyone in the ass". Somewhat dark plot, integrates great explanations/extensions of various canon events, and good use of humour to break up the heaviness. I've actually forgotten a few times since I've read this that Sebastian isn't canon, that's the kind of fic this is. It makes great use of OCs and the Watchers, slots perfectly into canon, and might be, objectively, the best Highlander fic I've read.

It probably helps that it echoes some of my headcanons re: the nature of the Game, Methos having a normal life before the Horsemen, and, in one very brief scene, sub!Methos.

Crit: Falls a bit into the trope of woobifying Methos and demonizing McLeod in the wake of CaT/Rev6:8/TMP, but this fades as the fic progresses. I'm also uncertain about is the treatment of Amanda, I found her actions and narration difficult to believe, even misogynistic, but I'm willing to give it a pass and assume it's an artefact of not having seen much of the show in a while, especially considering the well-developed OFC.

tl;dr this fic is awesome
