The Second Flashfiction Ficathon is Here!!  
Back by popular(ish) demand, it's now time for the SECOND HIGHLANDER FLASHFICTION FICATHON!!!!

The theme of this ficathon is once again Second Banana. Basically, entrants can choose any secondary character from all of Highlander (this includes the Series, the Raven, the movies and even the anime if you so choose). So, absolutely NO Macleods, Methos, Joe Dawson, or Richie Ryan* (there's enough fic about them already people!) but bucketloads of Darius, Hugh Fitzcairn, Rebecca, Ramirez, Bert Myers, Tessa Noel and any other secondary character you might feel has had short shrift in fanfic.

*The primary characters are allowed to appear in your fic, but they should not be the protagonist of it.

I am allowing a certain grey area for Nick Wolfe because the Raven is woefully lacking fic, and he's kind of a second banana anyway *pets Nick*, but this year I am excluding Amanda (although she can still appear in the story!).

Minimum length will be 500 words, we want lots of entries to make this a success, but there is no maximum. We only ask that the fic is posted complete.

Signups will begin next week, so please pimp this on any comms you belong to/maintain and your LJ.

In the meantime, we need prompts so please leave your suggestions in the comments below.

Money can't buy friends, but it can get you a better class of enemies.
Today's horoscope: The past is about to catch up with you.
It was a simple plan, which is why he didn't understand how it could have gone so terribly wrong.

Sean Burns
Remember me,

Hugh Fitzcairn
Live on your toes, love on your knees, die on your feet.
Okay I paid the $20.00. What do the cards say?
If you're going to walk on thin ice, you might as well dance

Darius -
One thousand regrets.
Keep your friends close and your enemies closer.
Every chapter is another beginning.
