I need more Supernatural/Highlander crossovers and preferably ones that actually involve HL Hunters
Just read a Highlander/Supernatural crossover, which was awesome, since there's far too few crosses between those two shows, no matter how well they fit together.

But even the ones that do write crossovers keep missing the most obvious connection of all and I don't understand why...

Both shows have Hunters. In one show they're the bad guys, in another both the heroes of the show, and some people hunting them are Hunters.

Either way, I don't believe that Duncan's reaction to meeting Hunters would be all too nice, Horton took care of that. Which is awesome cause built in tension...

Yet no one uses it.

Of the few Supernatural/Highlander crossovers there are, few or no people have any of the immortals even mention Horton, or the fact that the SPN hunters way of life comes pretty close to that of Horton's hunters. I mean, Horton saw immortals as evil, many of his hunters believed the same thing, so going from that idea...there's no reason that John Winchester and James Horton couldn't have been friends, who might even have hunted together.

Sam and Dean could very easily have grown up knowing Horton as one of their 'uncles'.

Wouldn't that be more interesting than the classical, Winchesters meet immortal, and either become one themselves or instantly become best friends with these supernatural beings whom they have no real reason to trust right away?

Man, I really need more time so I could write a HL/SPN crossover that would actually interest me...

And I still want to write a Jo Harvelle/Richie Ryan story *pouts*

I'm sure I don't know what you mean. I can't possibly imagine Dean & Sam investigating decapitated bodies found after lightning storms, and digging into the backgrounds of locals only to discover that their backgrounds don't bear up under such scrutiny. And then looking even more closely, and finding their close connection to numerous mysterious deaths/disappearances, and their habit of carrying a sword everywhere, and eventually witnessing a duel.

And it's not like there aren't enough bad immortals out there terrorizing and murdering innocent people to get the Hunters on their case. And a little generalizing is all it takes for "Immortals" to go into the List of Things To Kill Today.

(Meanwhile, I want a Dead Like Me/Highlander crossover. I mean, one I didn't write myself. George lives in Seattle. Duncan lives in Seattle--uh, I mean "Seacouver". George is tasked with taking the souls of those who die by violence. It doesn't get a lot more violent than decapitation. And Duncan caps at least half a dozen bad guys a season in Seacouver...)

Also: don't tease. WHAT crossover story did you read? Where?

lol, yes, that does sound unlikely doesn't it*g*

(oh man I definitely want to read more Dead Like Me crossovers as well.)

As for the crossover, sorry, didn't keep the link, but I think the author was Amand_r, but I could be wrong on that.

I don't know if the concept of Hunters in the Highlander world was terribly well-known. Certainly Duncan MacLeod and his circle knew, but if I remember correctly he only told other Immortals about Watchers if it happened to come up, so he likely wouldn't mention Hunters either unless there was an immediate threat.

Though I always do like a good crossover.

Not saying that the concept of Hunters would be well known amongst immortals in general, just like Watchers, there'd be only a few that know about them. But imo a good Highlander crossover involves the main canon HL characters, all of whom do know about Hunters and have reasons to fear/hate them.

Besides, why ignore a major potential source of tension that could only strengthen the fic you're writing?
