On Faith and Trust Alone by Tessa Rae and Sethra is a Highlander/The Professionals crossover slash story (Duncan/Methos & Bodie/Doyle). Bodie and Doyle are ordered to keep one Duncan MacLeod under protective surveillance as it is believed he is a target for a serial killer (who just happens to be an Immortal). Duncan meets Adam Taylor--AKA Methos-- ten years prior to their meeting in the show and, of course, with Methos involved, things get very interesting very quickly. And, to make it even better, Connor arrives on the scene--he has a personal quarrel with the serial killer.

The Fool's Luck series by Chris P. is a crossover between Uncovered (in which Peter Wingfield played Max Lapena, a gigalo) and The Breed (in which Adrian Paul played Aaron Grey, a vampiric cop). That being the case, it might appeal to those who enjoy D/M in Highlander... or it might not. The story is slash (Max/Aaron). The writing is superb and the characters are very well-developed. For instance, I've never seen Uncovered, yet I had no problem following the story or understanding the character of Max. Currently, there are two stories available out of a planned trilogy, but you're not left hanging. Each story has its own plot and wrap up. This is one of those series that I go back and reread over and over again. *sigh* Can't wait for the third story... :-)

Home is Where the Heart Is by [livejournal.com profile] daegaer is a Good Omens/Dogma crossover story (Gen). While vacationing in America, Aziraphale and Crowley have a run-in with Loki and Bartelby. Needless to say, the four do not get along. Loki is determined to kill Aziraphale for consorting with a demon, and Crowley takes exception to this. There are some scenes in this story that can make me giggle just from remembering them. ;-) (11,783 words)

Yay! New story from Vathara! Upon a Fiery Steed is a Stargate/Gundam Wing crossover. This is an action/adventure story with only a smidge of angst, and some mild yaoi between Trowa and Quatre. I've only seen a couple of episodes of Gundam Wing, so I don't know very much about those characters. The Stargate team, however, are spot on. Daniel is captured by a previously unknown Goa'uld queen, but he's not the only prisoner. Duo Maxwell has also been caught, and he manages to help Daniel escape. But not, unfortunately, before Daniel is infected with the nasty Reaver virus that will turn him into a nasty and deadly creature that will only follow the orders of the Goa'uld queen. Needless to say, drastic measures are taken to save Daniel, and then the SGC and the Sanq government enter talks to form an alliance. There's a great scene in the story where SG-1 and Weapon Zero team up to prank the Tok'ra, who are, per usual, being total prats.

Changing of the Guard by Ecolea is a Stargate/Highlander crossover that mainly focuses on the characters of Methos and Col. Jack O'Neill. The series is pretty long, but very entertaining. The author does a good job of capturing the essences of these two characters as they form a strong bond of friendship. Methos discovers someone who accepts him as he is--no recriminations about his somewhat bloody past, and Jack is elated to find a fellow warrior that he can trust at his back and not have to worry so much about him getting killed. It all begins when Daniel is injured during a mission and recommends Adam Pierson to get started on some translations while he is recuperating. Unaware that the position has been offered by the Air Force, Adam (Methos) is expecting it to be something of a paid vacation. He gets much more than he bargained for when the Air Force discovers that he is Immortal.

Happy happy joy joy! I received the DVD of the pilot episode of Airwolf today! (Ordered it off of ebay.) In honor of the occasion, I'll recommend an Airwolf story. Of Night and Fire by Vathara is an Airwolf/Sentinel crossover. A demoness from a past mission in which both Michael "Archangel" Goldsmith Briggs and James Ellison participated is killing off all members of the team that imprisoned her. The Airwolf team need to work together in order to keep her from claiming their friend and leader. Ellison, meanwhile, is still angry at Michael for the events of the mission, blaming him for the deaths of many of the members. Most of the story deals with the various bonds the characters have with one another--Airwolf links all of her pilots together, but Hawke and Michael seem to share a bond similar to that of Sentinel and Guide.

That's not really the actual name of the series, but it's the name I've given to this Highlander/X-Files crossover that consists of several shorter stories. Some are just snippets, but others are complete stories. This series is written by Eoen and Kethry. The series really gets going with "Comes a Horseman/Revelations 6:8" and continues to gain momentum in "Meetings." The series is currently unfinished, but the stories are satisfying in themselves. Many are retellings of Highlander episodes, but with twists. In "Comes a Horseman/Revelations 6:8," we learn how Methos came to be with the Horsemen and how the dynamics of the group worked. The X-Files parts are just small bits, at first, but become larger when Alex Krycek enters the picture in a big way in "Meetings." Alex, it turns out, is an immortal and one of Methos' students. The relationships between the various characters are what really make this series work. Some Macleod and Mulder bashing, but they're not completely OOC.

A Trout in the Milk and its sequel, Fishcakes and Ryebread,by Tray are Highlander/X-Files crossover fics. Adam (Methos)/Walter Skinner, with intimations of Methos/Duncan. The story is told from Skinner's point of view, so it's interesting to see what he makes of Adam's behavior and strange snippets of conversation between Adam and Joe or Adam and Duncan. It seems that in the recent past, Adam had been held prisoner and tortured by a psycho who was trying to influence the outcome of the Game. Skinner tries to help Adam deal with the lingering trauma of his captivity, as well as figure out exactly what happened to Adam--the evidence found on scene just doesn't jive with Adam's physical condition and Adam isn't talking. The story becomes more intense in the sequel when Adam tries to explain his immortality. Skinner, convinced that Adam is delusional, stops him before he can demonstrate and then hides all the knives. Throw in the pyscho's escape, Duncan's appearance, and a missing Methos and you've got a very enthralling and well written tale.

(I finally figured out how the linking worked in JournalAlert. Yay! And, see, I do read other things besides Smallville. :-) )

Hey, look! A recommendation that's not Smallville! Roll the Bones by Vathara: http://www.fanfiction.net/read.php?storyid=1667457. This is a Sentinel/Yu-Gi-Oh crossover (Gen/PG-13). Even if you're not particularly fond of the the shows, the story is excellent. I especially like the relationships between Yugi/Yami and Seto--not sexual, but emotional. When Yugi/Yami is forced to kill a necromancer, he has difficulties dealing with his feelings of guilt and abandonment as his only remaining family (his grandfather) begins to pull away from him emotionally. Seto, who has been in a similar situation, reluctantly comes to his aid as they try to stop a duelist who has been bringing monsters from the Shadow Lands into the real world. To make things even more interesting, the story takes place in Cascade, Washington--home of a Sentinel and his Guide (who may have more in common with Yugi than either of them know).

I just have to say, all of Vathara's stories are excellent. Her Urban Legends stories are my favorites--many Airwolf crossovers! (I've always loved the Lady.) You can find her stories at http://www.fanfiction.net/ or http://traethlin.tripod.com/ (this site isn't updated as frequently).
