Friday Free For All

Happy Friday, everyone! It's our usual Free For All, so knock yourselves out. All fandoms, characters, and prompts are welcome today.

Just remember to follow the usual rules:
No more than 5 prompts in a row, no more than 3 prompts per fandom. If a prompt is answered, you may prompt again.
No spoilers in your prompts until 1 week after the original air/publication date. If there's spoilers in your response, please warn in bold and leave at least 3 spaces.

Remember to format your prompts appropriately and keep them to a reasonable length. For example:

Kane RPS, Christian Kane/Steve Carlson, kisses
Supernatural/Warehouse 13, ensemble, there's something in John's lockup that belongs in the warehouse

And if none of our prompts are catching your attention, there's always the Lonely Prompts

Highlander, Methos and the Watchers, Adam Pierson doesn't do anything suspicious like train in swords, but he is an experienced BASE jumper.

Even in the research division, Watchers are encouraged to pick up hobbies that would seem odd to people at any other workplace. There were a lot of the "normal" skills based in camouflage, espionage, and historical/linguistics that were the bread and butter of the Watcher Académie, but there were also other, less often used skills.

Methos didn't think liking to Base jump was too unusual for his persona. Sometimes, a person needed to be a little bit unusual so as not to stand out. Fredrick of Section L was very, very good at parkour. Alisha of Section C was an expert at underwater archaeology. George in HR was a pretty decent blacksmith. It wasn't that bad. It was also very important to Methos' mental health. Base jumping had a slight, but very much there, chance of killing him permanently. Methos knew that, for him, combating the urge to do stupid, ridiculous, dangerous things, such as meeting a certain immortal-magnet Highlander, are easy to do when you're already doing a stupid, ridiculous, dangerous thing, such as base jumping, or joining the watchers. All this one required, for the watchers, was occasionally train one of the occasional field agents in the dangers and differences between base jumping and falling out of an airplane. It wasn't like an action movie where spies jumped off buildings all the time. That would imply that the watcher had already failed at being a watcher. It was simply a hobby. One that he, ironically, used to keep himself alive.

Oh yes, this is it exactly! I love the reason for the Watchers to have odd hobbies and the list of different hobbies they have, and the reason for Methos to do stupid, ridiculous, dangerous things because it fills that need. Perfect! Thank you.

I love all of your Methos fics and characterizations. I felt the need to give back. =D
