Ficathon time!  
Are you bored? Worried you won’t be able to find any new Highlander fic? Then worry not! We at hl_flashfic have decided to relaunch the Highlander Flashfiction Ficathon!

Feel there isn't enough fic featuring Matthew McCormick? Itching to try writing Horton? Now's your chance in our 'Second Banana' minor character ficathon! Any secondary character from the Highlander universe is welcome, from Darius to Maurice to Silas to Tessa and everyone in between.

You can now suggest prompts over at hl_flashfic in the prompt post. Please also feel free to help get people interested by pimping on any comms you can think of and in your LJ.

Signups will begin next week and I hope to get the assignments out to writers by the first week of July, and give them a month to write so that we all get some lovely Highlander fic to read over August!

Does Richie count as a Second Banana?

Sadly not, the focus is on those characters that we didn't see much of in canon and don't get written for often enough in fanfic, so no Richie, Methos or either MacLeod and I think I might exclude Amanda too this year.

He can be *in* a story, just not the major focus of it.

I might be persuaded to give him his own ficathon next time though!

[Wailing and knashing of teeth]

Can she make a guest appearance?

ETA</i> Oh, wait, just read the promp post. YAY! Amanda can turn up :-P

Yes she can turn up! (It would be very boring if she couldn't!) And if this goes well enough, and I can keep up the motivation to keep the comm going this time, she may well be getting her own ficathon to make up for this one ;-)

Love your prompts btw. It's quite spooky because I was thinking about trying to write Ramirez for this one or possibly Jeremy!

I aim to please!

(And some Jeremy fic would be AWESOME!)

Okay, that's fine. There are quite a few female characters I'd like to see written about. *Goes to drop some prompts*

I know she was born on the show, but could I throw out a prompt for an adult Mary (Anne's daughter)?

Oh most definitely! :)
