Maxine's Note: I rate all my stories NC-17 for mature themes as well as occasional graphic depiction of sex between two men (m/m slash). All my "Highlander"/Methos stories pair Duncan MacLeod with Methos, although sometimes simply as friends (sometimes called pre-slash, sometimes called "get a clue!"). In addition to the characters from the series itself, I’ve created several recurring Original Male Immortals including the following whose physical appearance is based on these actors: Lance Henriksen (Erasmus Minor, sometimes called Edward Rasmussen); Leonardo DiCaprio (Quentin of York, sometimes called Leonardo); Antonio Banderas (Lamartin, sometimes called Antonio). However, you can be sure that none of these "mirror characters" take over a story to the exclusion of Methos and Mac!
