Highlander/POTC 1/1  
Written for Day 11 of consci_fan_mo and for ithildyn who gave me this prompt:PotC/HL, Jack, Methos, sisters (preferably twins). Hope you like this hon.

Disclaimer: Nothing that follows is mine.

A Quiet Night

Methos smiled as he spotted Captain Jack Sparrow stumbling toward him across the tavern. He’d been looking forward to a relaxed evening by himself, but he felt certain that whatever Jack wanted would be far more entertaining.

Jack collapsed onto the bench opposite Methos, grabbed Methos’ tankard and took a long draught as though he’d just crossed a desert, not a room.

“Good evening, Jack,” Methos said to the bottom of his tankard with amusement. Jack put the mug down and slid it back to Methos’ side of the table before replying. Methos noted that the mug was now empty.

“Evening, Ben,” Jack said, words even more slurred than usual. Methos surmised that Jack had been in port for an hour or so. “Got a proposition for you.”

“Really?” Methos said as he caught the attention of a barmaid and ordered two more ales.

Jack beamed conspiratorially and leaned forward.

“There’s this girl, and she’s got this sister, savvy?”

“Oh no,” Methos protested. He clearly remembered the last time he’d bedded a girl on Jack’s advice and rubbed absently at his cheek.

“I swear, this one has all her own teeth. And she’s very amiable,” Jack explained. He flashed a winning smile at the barmaid as she placed their beers in front of them. She tutted and walked away; clearly she’d already had first hand experience of Jack’s charms. Jack didn’t even pause as he picked up the beer and drank.

“You said that about the last one. And I believed you, right up until her husband and his friends ran us out of town,” Methos retorted before taking a drink of his own beer. Jack grinned.

“Good times,” he said fondly. “But I swear, she’s attractive… unattached… of age.” Jack punctuated each word with a wave of his hand and then drank again when he’d finished.

“I don’t know Jack. I can never show my face in Bordeaux again,” Methos said. At least not for a hundred years or so, he added to himself.

“Did I mention they’re twins?”

“Twins?”

“I’d take care of them all on me onesie, but I find myself... incapacitated at the moment, savvy?” Jack brushed one drunken finger across his nose conspiratorially. “And they’re identical.”

*-*

Four very pleasurable hours later, Methos and Jack were running full tilt toward the harbour, an angry mob chasing behind, led by the girls' irate father.

“I swear, I didn't know he was the Parson, Ben!” Jack cried out between panting. Methos grinned.

“Don’t worry, Jack. It was worth it!”

*snorfle* Love it! Great stuff, so much fun!

And am I evil for wondering what would happen to those two if Amanda showed up?

You are always evil, but in the best possible way.

That amount of trouble-magnetism in one room, multiplied by snark cubed? I'd imagine the world would disappear into a big black vacuum of innuendo and be swallowed by a pair of sea-turtles.

the fun of characters, that are several thousand years old - you can make crossovers with just about every other fandom and it actually works ;-)

That was fun
