The Lost in the Loving  (LL) Series

Thank you Killa for both of the stunning pictures on this page, done especially for the 'Lost in the Loving' series.

 

This is my major Duncan/Methos slash fiction.

It comprises the Lost in the Loving Chronicles, interspersed with Lost in the Loving Musings (first person points of view from various characters).  The Musings are reflective, quieter, pieces that attempt to fill in the spaces and silences often referred to in the main Chronicles.

The series also includes Lost in the Loving Poems, my original poetry from the Chronicles and Musings or poems by others which I find highly relevant to the Highlander universe as portrayed in these chronicles.

 NB:  Because I write the stories out of sequence all my pieces are subject to ongoing minor revision and editing in order to ensure appropriate continuity and accuracy in the LL universe.  

 

***PRE-READING FOR MY 'LOST IN THE LOVING' SERIES***

MacGeorge is currently writing a superb piece that depicts the times and incidents that *forged* Duncan MacLeod.  We have collaborated to ensure that there is total consistency between the two Series.  In particular, reading The Wilderness Years will help understand certain events in 'LL:Lighting You Home'.

MacGeorge: Forging the Blade:

The Wilderness Years

Currently, in progress, a history of Duncan's early years.  The title refers to what is expected to be an arc of stories.

 

Story set 1622 and onwards  

 

 

The 'Lost in the Loving' Universe
