Title: Storytelling & Blood
Author: [personal profile] melannen
Fandom: Diane Duane's Young Wizards & Highlander:The Series
Length: ~4,000 words.
Rating: Violence, grief, madness, anger and despair; no sex.
Summary: Ahriman is an avatar of the Lone Power. Richie Ryan is a young wizard on Ordeal. Methos is all too familiar with how that story ends.

Notes: This story is basically a re-interpretation of the end of the Highlander: The Series episode "Archangel" re-cast through the lens of the cosmology of "Young Wizards", and focusing on Methos and Joe, mostly because I like it a lot more that way. It contains a small amount of verbatim dialogue, and, yes, the canon character death from that episode.

If you know HL but not YW: I suspect that parts of this will not make a lot of sense to you, because it is pretty deeply involved with some of the more complicated bits of meta/physics in the YW-verse that even wizards have trouble understanding sometimes. Bascially: Wizards are people (and not just humans, all kinds of people) who take an Oath to serve the Powers that Be; on Earth, they usually keep their wizardry secret. The One is above the Powers, and the Lone Power rebelled against the One and brought Death and pain and entropy into the universe. Wizards mostly fight the Lone Power. The Powers like hide to themselves in people and hang out in the universe, especially the One's Champion. Uh, if you read it, get confused, and want an explanation of something, feel free to ask me in comments.

If you know YW but not HL: This contains no YW characters (at least not in familiar forms, though as usual there are Powers about.) It is mostly based on the episode Archangel with some bits from elsewhere. I think it is still readable if you don't know any Highlander; feel free to let me know. The short version as relevant to this story: Immortals, who never age and only die if their heads get cut off, live invisibly among humans. Macleod, Richie, and Methos are Immortals. Methos is the oldest known immortal, older than history, and has a Dark Past in which he went by the name "Death" for a thousand years. Joe isn't immortal but knows all about them. MacLeod is currently being harassed by a millennial prophecy and a demon who plays with illusion. Richie is Mac's student and very young for an Immortal.
