Any Rebecca in HL:TR?  
For those of you who have seen (and recall) Highlander: The Raven, does it have any Rebecca appearances or references? Celli requested a fic with Amanda learning about swords and fighting from Rebecca. I know the Highlander: The Series canon very well! I don't want to accidentally violate Highlander: The Raven canon.

(I saw the first few episodes of Highlander: The Raven when they aired, but it was an unsettled time in my life, and those first few episodes didn't happen to capture my imagination. The series didn't re-run; I never got around to buying the DVDs; it's not available for streaming.)

I know this post is old, but thought I'd answer anyway. No, Rebecca does not appear (except re-used flashback) and I do not recall her being referenced. Amanda learned some sort of knife/fan fighting thing in the early 1900s (but she was, of course, Amanda learned to sword fight long before that).

I will say I think H:TR gets a bit better after from episode 4 onwards (except ep 5 - didn't care for that). I liked it well-enough, but then I'm more a first-season Highlander fan, too (actually quit watching halfway through season 3), so am not the typical Highlander fan.

All eps are available for free on Hulu right now - wouldn't have bothered watching if they weren't. But I enjoyed the show for the most part and was looking for H:TR fanfic that featured the characters from H:TR instead of bringing in Methos or Connor or Duncan to co-star.

Re: Rebecca
Thank you for letting me know. It's very kind of you to look at old posts!

HL:tR is also now available for streaming on Amazon (free with Prime). I haven't yet made time to watch it, but one of these days, I will. :-)

I'm afraid that I haven't read any HL:tR-exclusive fanfiction, and so have none to recommend. I would hope that there are some good stories out there without "the boys"! But I'm afraid that's something on which media fandom in general doesn't have the most brightly shining track record, and HL hasn't been a pointed exception to that trend. Good luck!
