HL Fanfic: "Present Company"

This is the Highlander story that I wrote for the Summer 2010 oldschoolfic event.  My thanks to karrenia_rune for the prompt, and to [personal profile] 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.

  •   Title: "Present Company" (also on AO3)
  •   Length: ~2,900 words
  •   Date: July 2010
  •   Rating: PG
 •  Characters:   Starring Charlie.  Also with Richie, Randi, Duncan and Joe.
  •   Summary: Charlie has a lot on his mind when Duncan finally returns to Seacouver.
 •  Quotation: "Charlie thought again about legitimate reasons that a stranger might have popped up like this -- and about how very little he wanted to end up charged with assault -- but the weight in the man's right hand inside his pocket skewed the odds."
