Highlander drabble  
Decided to use consci_fan_mo as an excuse to dust off my highlander50 table. This is for the prompt Centuries, my character is Richie for those of you who don't know (and why would you, it's been over two years since I last posted a fic for this table!) You can find the rest of my table here.

So, here for your hopeful enjoyment is a quick drabble:

Brief Moments of Doubt

Sometimes, when Duncan is telling another anecdote about his various exploits, the weight of his centuries terrifies Richie. The thought that he might live for that long, what he might achieve in that time. What he will lose.

It’s too much to bear some days.

But then he imagines what bikes will be like in ten, twenty years time. Or, better yet, how in a few hundred years he might be piloting a spaceship, travelling at light speeds across a galaxy. And hopefully he can share it all with Duncan, Amanda, even Methos.

Then centuries don’t seem quite so bad.

*huggles Richie*

I think you sneaked into Richie's head space very well there, as well as managing to remind me of one of my favourite Richie quotes. Knowing you, that could well have been on purpose.

You know me too well. Thank you. It's good to know I can still write him, it's been a while. Hope he isn't feeling neglected!

Nice. I like to read this and think that his future isn't really what happens in the show, but that he does get to have all those years. It's nicer to imagine him piloting a spaceship.

Don't know what you mean, nothing happened to him in the show... ;-)

Glad you enjoyed :)

Richie! I always love when you write Richie. Makes me squee. And this was such a wonderful piece. I bet the idea of living forever does kind of scare him.

Thank you so much :)

I miss writing for Rich, it's been too long. Maybe it's time to dust off the old browncoat.
