3/2/14. The only current TV series I care about are Banshee and Almost Human; and I'm not planning any fan fiction for them - though I still like the two short Banshee fics I have posted. (A later note: Sadly, Almost Human has been canceled. Happily, I've found a new show I like, Resurrection. But I have no fan fiction plans for that, either.) So...

(5/28/16: I'm inserting a quick note here to say that I have written another Banshee fic: "References Required," a followup to the series finale.)

Highlander: The Series is my all-time favorite show, and I've recently resumed writing Highlander fics. Beginning in 2013, I've added more fics to the series that constitutes my main Highlander universe. On 7/21/14, I've completed it - by a happy coincidence, the same number of fics as there were episodes in a typical season of the show. I'm listing the fics in this series here, in the order in which they should ideally be read. The lengths vary widely! Here's the list:

1. Absolutely Not
2. Time Out of Mind
3. Let There Be Light
4. Death of the Dream
5. Lone Wolfe
6. A Present With a Past
7. Somewhere Else
8. Puzzle Pieces
9. Awakening
10. Deja Vu
11. Why, Indeed?
12. Revelations (written in 2013)
13. Deathwatch (written in 2013)
14. Survivor
15. There Need Be Only One
16. Land of My Birth
17. Will o' the Whisper (written in 2013)
18. Miles to Go
19. Long Forgotten Snow
20. The Third Day (written in 2014)
21. Star Light, Star Bright (written in 2014)
22. Back From Nineveh (written in 2014)

In any case, many of these fics make sense as standalones. In The Third Day, Chapter 1 is mostly - though not entirely! - a recap, which should give a new reader, familiar with HL in general, the necessary information about special features of this particular universe. (I think of it as a series titled "Origins." It 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!)

Note added 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!

Also, I still like most of the HL fics I've posted that aren't part of this main universe.

JUST A THOUGHT: In case there should be anyone who's read and liked some of my other fan fiction, but hasn't read my Highlander fics because they know nothing about Highlander, I have an essay at FictionPress that provides the background needed to understand my fics.

"The Highlander Universe": https://www.fictionpress.com/s/3252177/1/The-Highlander-Universe

But it shouldn't be read by anyone who actually means to look at either Highlander: The Series or Highlander: The Raven! It includes major spoilers for both.
