Both of these stories are awesome. You have such a simple easy writing style. I hope Darius and Methos play many more games of chess.

Bravo! Bravo!

Great story. I love the contrast between Methos' character in 'As the World', and his character in this story (where he is much closer to the Methos of modern times). He's such a playful, charming sociopath in the first one, and you artfully depicted his transformation from someone who missed the rush of power he felt as one of the Horsemen to someone who changed enough to no longer enjoy battle at all.

On a different note, what treasure does Methos plan to steal back from Napoleon? Now my curiosity is piqued.

I like it- Darius and Methos have enough in common that their interaction is really interesting, and I liked your exploration of what it means to change
GoldenRat chapter 1 . 5/24/2010
I so enjoy Darius and Methos fics, they have such similar, yet different POVs.

Please continue this story!

I loved this story. You capture both of them so well and I love the historical details you put in (and, being a history major, I loved the accuracy). I hope you choose to write their next meeting, because this (and "As the World") were real treats into a relationship that must have existed even though we never heard about it.

An excellent story. I liked the fact that you picked up on how his motto changed from "then we fight" (as Silas quotes him) to "fight another day".

I think this is the best story about Methos and why he left the horsemen that I have read.

This part is especially noteworthy:

*

“There is a part of me that could go back to it.”

“But would you be happy?” asked Darius. Methos looked shocked. It was obviously not a question he had ever asked himself.

“No,” said Methos slowly. “I find no joy in killing or fighting now. It’s a necessity.”

“Then you have your answer. The things that make you happy have changed, therefore you have changed.”

*

And yes, I definitely agree with your observation that Methos and Darius make excellent friends.

I like your version of Darius and Methos. I'm looking forward to reading more! (hint!)
Lita of Jupiter chapter 1 . 2/21/2009
very interesting story, I love how they know each other and about how much Darius suspected... not to mention the fact that Methos was planning on stealing from Napoleon and introducing Darius to eastern philosophies.

the insights each of them have on the other are very deep and also I like how you had Darius be the inspiration for Methos spending 200 years without being challenged.

also how Darius is clearly older than the church he adopted, using the references to ancient things from before and how that is a side not many know and remember.

I loved it, especially the little glimpses of the times, like the beheaded statues and the roads
Black Rook chapter 1 . 2/20/2009
Nice story. (And I liked the first one when I read it, though was to lazy to review it then:)). Hope to read more from you, someday.
