highlander on the mind  

Apparently I’ve got Highlander on the mind. Last week MedievalPOC caused me to write a fic (I’ll post it after I’ve retrieved the third that I was working on when the tablet battery died), last night I got into this big discussion about Methos over on FB with a friend, which caused me to point out IMMORTAL BELOVED to her, and to wist about someday being able to write my other two Methos novels (which, unless Davis/Panzer opens Highlander up to Kindle Worlds, is not something I can ever see happening).

So this morning I had this exceedingly vivid Highlander/vampire mashup dream in which Tom Hiddleston may have been playing Methos, I couldn’t quite tell.

Anyway, I typed up what I cold remember. I wish dreams made as much sense in recollection as they do in the moment, because in the dream it was extremely coherent and I know I’m only remembering bits of it in the writeup. Someday I want to see if hypnotization brings back dream detail.

Man, that's so weird. I had a dream with Tom Hiddleston in it on...Friday night? I think. He wasn't Loki, I think he was a normal human, but he was a playing a character similar to Loki.

I woke up wishing I could see him in that role, but I didn't write it down and now that's all I remember of it.

my fingers twitched during the series, when they showed Methos' personal books/diaries...

My dear Ms. Murphy, file off the serial numbers and write the books anyway.

As one does.

I've never been able to figure out a way to file off the serial numbers sufficiently to do it. I've gone a fair distance in filing off serial numbers on a *different* Highlander idea, far enough that I could do a YA series with it, but the Methos stories are so specific to the character and the people he knows within the TV series I've just never been able to separate them. #woe

Change the names? Tweak the settings?

(I am Evil. Evil Gelding learned it from me.)

Honestly, I've spent ages trying to figure out how to do it and I just can't. Possibly if I wrote all the other stuff in the other filed-off-world-version and set it all up so I could do those stories too, but man, that's an awful lot of setup. :)
