This is the Highlander story that I wrote for the Summer 2010 oldschoolfic event. My thanks to karrenia_rune for the prompt, and to batdina for the beta-reading. (As always, constructive criticism is welcome.)
I'd never written Charlie DeSalvo before, and I'm not sure that I'd ever read a story from Charlie's perspective, either. When I looked for screenshots from which to make an icon to go with this story on the ficathon, I found only half a dozen unique images of Charlie on the entire Internet. It's curious. He really is a significant character, if not as significant as some.
