Clan Affiliation: Clan Mac Val
Guardian of the Loft
I'm in my 40's and have lived in Chicago for about 30 years. The things
I enjoy most are music, dancing, dining out, traveling, reading (I'll read
anything, including the cereal box), computers and, most importantly, people.
I became a Highlander fan when I caught the first episode b ack in '92;
Duncan MacLeod stepped forth, caught my eye and I've never looked back.
Life is sweet.
I am 30, married to a great guy who indulges my HL obsession. I even have him watching now! He is hooked on Amanda. No kids, just work and logging on the HL forum. I travel all the time , so the forum keeps me up-to-date with all the HL news. Peace

Des Plaines, IL
I'm a 37 year old poet, published in a few small venues. I am also studying playing the Celtic harp, do reams of needlework, and love to cook. I was a Dawson fan from the moment he stepped around the stacks at the bookstore, and have become a Byrnes fan through his music.
I am 36, married and mother of one wonderful 6 year old son who likes to watch HL with me. I believe Duncan and Tessa were the perfect couple and I wish they hadn't killed her off.
Northwest Illinois (small city of Galesburg)
I just turned 34 and have been happily married to my high school sweetheart for 14 years. We have one son and one daughter. One of the stabilizing forces in my life is watching AP five times a week on the USA channel and then once each Friday night on the FOX channel.
I am a female undergrad majoring in English, minoring in Medieval Studies, Anthropology and Art History. I became a fan of Highlander: The Series because Methos became a recurring (now regular) character on the show. I'm relatively certain that the prophecies about "The End" are misleading. I expect the original text read, "In the end, there ca n be only one (or two)." The reason Methos doesn't have a girlfriend: He's waiting for me.

Ravena's Home Away from Home
I'm 27, married, have a great 7 year old son. I first saw HL while flipping through the channels late one evening in January 1995 and instantly fell *thunk*, I was hooked. I am having mixed feelings about Season 6, I can't wait, yet I am also dreading the end. :( But, hey, at least we have the videos, right? :)

Forum Claim to fame:Countdown Countessa. I keep the official Forum countdown to the opening day of Highlander: Endgame.
I am 30 years old and married -- no kids, just my cat. I rented the original Highlander movie in 1993 simply because it starred Sean Connery, and I've loved all things Highlander (except the horrid AAA arch) ever since.

Clan Affiliation: Clan MacWoW
Forum Claim to Fame: I helped rescue from the oblivion of a K'Forum crash the excellent and useful HL Season 6 explanation currently posted on Wildcard's webpage.
In addition to HL, I am also a fan of the Inklings and others of their era (J.R.R. Tolkien, C.S. Lewis, Dorothy Sayers. . .) and I attend the Mythopoeic Society Convention every summer. I love movies, and I read omnivorously, but with special affection for fantasy and science fiction. My favorite TV series before HL was Beauty and the Beast (I am still in denial over the ghastly series end.) I find human beings and their ways endlessly fascinating and creation endlessly beautiful, so I travel as much as I can.
Born in the '40's and raised in the Pacific Northwest, I feel at home in Seacouver. A middle-school teacher of French, I love watching the HL stories set in the Paris area I know so well. I have been married for many happy years to a truly chivalrous gentleman (one who can talk about honor with a straight face). He and my 21-year-old shoot-from-the-lip hunk of a son patiently humor my HL mania. I have been an HL fan since 1996--what pulled me in was the beautiful relationship between Duncan and Tessa. What made me a fan was the unique Highlander combination: history, swordfights, adventure, romance, philosophical/moral/personal growth values, character and relationship development, respect for religion and education and the arts, international outlook, high production values, exceptionally intelligent writing/acting/directing. . .not to mention characters who manage to be gorgeous, funny, classy, endearing, sexy, quirky, inspiring, and very very human all at the same time. In a slipshod, materialistic world, I am thrilled to be able to watch a show which challenges me to think deeply about right and wrong, encourages me to love and enjoy life without denying its pain, andwhich reminds me that there are values worthy of great sacrifice and fates worse than death.
Paix et Highlander a jamais!

Watcher of His First Awakening
Beth Ann Valek
Clan Affiliation: Clan MacFru
Forum Claim to Fame: Brought YKYWTMHLW to the forum, with help from my best friend
I'm a college student at Eastern Illinois, and am a diehard fan of Richie. He's one main reason I started watching the show, and he's the best person on there, IMO. I love him better as an Immortal, where he's more well-built and dresses much better (can't stand the grunge clothes from season one).
I also defend the characters who get the most abuse on the forum, namely Anne, Cassandra, Randy, and the episode "The Immortal Cimoli", namely as DOACATC.
I'm upset about Richie not being around next season, but at least I
have USA to fall back on.
Real Name: John Bierly
Favorite character: Amanda
I'm Elizabeth Gracen's Sweet, Sweet Butler. And that's Official.
I was born October 15, 1975. I live in Indiana. I love to read, I love to write. I love good music, good movies, good food, and good people. My favorite movie is Bottle Rocket. Interests beyond Highlander include Star Wars, The X-Files. I'm addicted to Seinfeld reruns. I'm always listening to music. Some of my favorites: Matthew Sweet, Nina Gordon, Jonatha Brooke, Better Than Ezra, Semisonic, Juliana Hatfield, Barenaked Ladies, Counting Crows, and Pearl Jam. Rock on, Forum!
Favorite character: I like all the characters.
CelticAngel's Highlander Fan Fiction
I'm 39, divorced, mother of three.I work in the history field, love to write fan fiction, historical fiction and am real into medical ethics, though I've never really been published.
I refuse to believe that Richie died at the end of season five (the subject of my current fanfic). I love all the guys equally, but CL makes my heart melt- and I refuse to believe that Connor will not be the "ONE".
It's hard to believe a TV show has become a hobby, but I couldn't ask for a better group of people to share it with.
Forum Claim to Fame: I amaze friends because I'm the only person they know who has a Duncan Macleod sword. It actually frightens them. They know I'm a big fan and are afraid I'll start lopping off people's heads one day. It's a beautiful sword- highly recommended to a fan if you can find one.
I'm a 21year old student at Depauw University. I was a football player until a shoulder injury from this year brought an end to that. I'm into weightlifting so I'm a pretty big guy and I also collect swords. My Duncan katana and a sword I purchased in Scotland are my favorite pieces. New to the forum but a longtime fan of the series and movies.

I've only been posting since Spring, 97 and have had a lot of fun and made new friends. It's great to find people who share an interest (obsession) I have. I'm married with children and I watch HL for it's moral and ethical teachings. I pay no attention to the Frus - really! hee-hee-hee. Signed, Soft White Flower of the Forum (somebody dubbed me with this description one day and I liked it)
Clan Affiliation: Clan Cylander
Claim to Fame: I would say I was one of the charter members of the MacWoW clan. We kind of got started when the Anaheim convention was going on. Some of us realized that there were a lot of over 40 women that were big HL fans. And we took the idea and ran with it.
I am a 42 year old single working mother, with a grown married daughter,
and a 16 year old son still at home. I work in the glass container industry.
My son knew about Highlander before I did. And he never told me, I had
to discover it on my own. He used to say we bonded when we watched HL,
but that was before S 6. I really miss Highlander, as I'm sure we all do.
Hope TPTB make us a great movie. I'm glad I can reach out to other HL fans

Author and lecturer by trade, I am 58 years old and Jesus is my Lord. I am married for 30+ years to my awesome lover. We have six children (5 girls, one boy) and seven grandchildren. Aye, my wee weakness is an obsession for Adrian Paul.
I'm a 25 year old female who is on the borderline of obsession with
anything and everything Highlander! My main object of obsession is Peter
Wingfield and his alter-egos Methos/Adam Pierson. I guess I am in good
company with many other forumlanders. It just shows that we have VERY good

I'm 32 and single. I'm Kindred Spirit to Kate of Kintail. I have to say Highlander changed my life, in more ways than one. I've been online for just over three years. I've learned more about Highlander, and made more friends than I would have ever believed. I wouldn't give that up for anything.
Favorite character: Methos

I am a thirty-something Christian and writer, married with three cats. I study history for pleasure and education as fodder for my fiction. Highlander supports my addiction of history quite handsomely via the 5,000 year old immortal Methos.

I'm 33 years old and have 2 daughters, Amanda, 15 and Danielle, 12 from a previous marriage. My husband Bill and I will celebrate our 5th anniversary in September. I love to read, draw, do calligraphy and I consider myself a Trekker and a huge Steven King fan. I'm a 'nut' with an attitude and a dry sense of humor who loves to laugh...even when I get carded while trying to buy a lottery ticket!!

Clan Affiliation: Clan MacWench
I dressed up like Duncan MacLeod for my university students for Halloweeen!
I am 36, married with three cats. I'm a sci-fi buff on all levels, and an HL fanatic. My claim to fame is that I teach utilizing HL in my college freshman course. This semester's extra credit assignment will be to write a reaction paper on Endgame!
I'm 28 and single with 2 cats. I work full time and go to law school at night. In what little free time I have I play the trombone in a swing-style jazz band, do counted-cross stitch and am an avid reader. I became hooked on Highlander after watching a second season episode with a friend.
Clan Affiliation: Clan MacWench
I am married with two young children. I teach history and love Highlander mainly because of the strong conncetions to history in the flashback--and of couse because of ONH. I love being a MacWench and helping others.
Forum Claim to Fame: I've lurked ,but have never been able to post. Maybe I'm cursed!
I'm 35, and happily divorced. I've been a fan of the Highlander for a couple of years, but when Methos put on that wig and blue paint, I was hopelessly lost. My life will never be the same again. Methos needs to meet me and make me #69.
Athos the little K'fru
Well, I'm still a college student. I still have a strange sense of humor, but the personality tends to border on seriously demented now. I drink way too much Mtn Dew, spend way too much time playing in Photoshop, and when I am not online (which is like. . .almost never) I like to read and sleep. . mostly sleep.

I am 15, single, and Duncan MacLeod is the best damn Immortal there is.
Clan Affiliation: Clan MacFru - Clan Denial Forum Claim to Fame: I was very lucky and seemed to be in the right place at the right time on the HL Cruise, sharing a bit more time with the stars than the average bear. This included a leisurely luncheon with Peter Wingfield on the island of Coco Cay. I also had the privilege of helping with the Kansas City Mini-Gathering. I guard Darius' Chess Board and dream of all the lazy afternoons spent over it discussing the vast experiences of the immortals we have come to know and love while sharing a good game.
I spend my life driving my 12 year daughter from dance lesson to dance lesson. I'm always in school I collect worthless degrees. I also live in Phoenix (usually the summer-go figure) and my email there is firstname.lastname@example.org And then there is my Highlander Obsession...

Favorite character: Joe Dawson
I don't suppose I really have a Forum claim to fame. I accidently discovered the forum, and have been wholy impressed with how decent and intelligent the members of the forum are. Maybe I can edit this once I actually have a forum claim to fame
I am 20 years old, attending the University of Missouri at Rolla and am engaged to a beautiful woman named Heather. I also believe that the original Highlander movie could have been soooo much better with a little bigger budget and a much better director. I just don't think the technology and the directing did it justice.
Claim to fame: Helped found Clan MacFru
I'm a 19 year-old college student from Kansas City, MO originally. I'm desperately torn between Richie and Methos but in the end I just have to say Richie is my favorite (I got to see Stan in KC and was completely swept away!). Besides HL, I love classic movies, suspense novels, and I'm a modest teddy bear collector. The greatest loves of my life are my dog and two cats, without whom I'd be lost.
Clan Affiliations: SAPS
Just a fan of AP, and Highlander
I am married, have 4 grown children. I am a homemaker, and an artist and doll maker. I love Highlander, and I think AP is the greatest.

Favorite Character: Duncan
Born in 1957, widowed, mother of 3, born in Newport, Rhode Island, and live in Kansas now. I fell in love with HL at the first movie and have followed ever since! I've enjoyed reading The Forum posts--didn't know this page existed. What fun!

Favorite Character Duncan
I'm 30. Work in a medical office. Not married yet.
Retired mother of 2 grown men, reader, writer and baker of cookies. Still a Highlander Fan after nearly seven years. Grateful for all my Highlander Friends.
My claim to Fame, I guess, is that I'm a real clown!
Now that I've attended a convention and have helped with the KCHLMG, I don't feel like a newbie. I really feel blessed meeting and getting aquainted with several from the forum. Good friends are the best, don't you think??I am a very young lady in her early forties and I like to be very active in my community and and with my family. At this point in time, I haven't attended any conventions but I look forward to meeting all my chat and forum buddies while drooling over Adrian Paul at a convention.
Residence: southern Missouri
Clan Affiliation: not for this loner, though I promise respect for all
I am 27, divorced, no kids, technical support rep for a software co. by day, eccentric philosopher and writer by night. Methos is the exclusive love in my life, for as Atlanta Rhythm Section said, "Imaginary lovers never let you down." I have recorded the details of our meeting and subsequent relations in my journal, but am currently too shy to share them with anyone but my cat, who is spellbound by the accounts. Besides, I might risk blowing my true love's cover, and it's already so hard to remember to address him as "Adam" in public...
Favorite Character: Duncan
I am not sure I have a claim to fame. But I do feel like the Forum is part of my extended family! I have met people that I do believe will be life long friends. And all thanks to Highlander!
I am 27, married. Mom of 3 and I LOVE Duncan with that short hair from S6! If he ever needs a friendly Hug just call on me I'll be there! *VBEG*..hee hee
I am 46 separated, mother of two boys (God help me!). www.rysher.com was the first thing I typed into my computer the first time I got online, and I've barely gotten any further than that. I always say I'm going to do something else when I get online, but somehow I always wind up here before long. I loved the movies, and the series both I love shows that deal with "good & evil" in a not too gritty way. Other shows I like are Star Trek and Babylon 5. And I hesitate to admit it, but I also like Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

Forum claim to fame: Mostly just lurk, but like to comment from time to time. Would like to meet many many of the forumlanders as I have discovered some very talented, witty, and intellegent people.
I am 40ish, single, I am obsessed with Adrian Paul, to gaze upon his beautiful face and body is pure heaven. To hear his voice say my name would allow me to die a happy woman.
Forum Claim to Fame: ANAHEIM****Meeting Adrian for the first time. The mental picture of him walking to the dinner through the bar will stay with me forever. He strode right beside me close enough to
touch, looked into my eyes and smiled. It was a good thing I was leaning against the back of a couch or I would have been a helpless lump of matter on the floor!!
DENVER****Many of the Forumlanders rallying together as a team making the stuffed animal drive a wonderful success for the children at the Denver Children's Hospital. Oh yes, and seeing Adrian!!:-) again
I am a forty plus, single mother of an active fifteen year old son who helps keep the Ultress hair coloring company in business. Gray hairs sprouting everywhere due to his many impish antics!!! :-)
My interests lie in various cultural events, different types of music, walking, tennis, horseback riding, beach volleyball and traveling. My favorite vacation spot being the beach, however, my last year trips to Anaheim and Denver will remain embedded in my soul.:-) I am highly involved in church school and community, and love taking on additional projects that will have a lasting and meaningful effect on children everywhere. I have been a Highlander fan for three years now and have loved every minute of it. Through Highlander/Duncan MacLeod, I was introduced to Adrian Paul, the person. Through his beliefs, caring and giving attitude, along with his inspirational and personal challenge messages, he has revived my life, enabling me to take new directions I never dreamed possible. Also through Highlander and Adrian, I have broadened my friends near and across the big pond. Friends who will remain in my heart and mind forever. Highlander and Adrian are the "Wind Beneath Our Wings", and have immortalized our lives in so many postive ways for years to come!!!

I was a prof of English at the university for thirty years (a baby when I started) with specialties in Medieval Lit--Chaucer, Arthurian Legend. Married to a man who gives me HL series tapes! One son in college. No pets: Beloved cat Weedie died. Duncan MacLeod is my kinda brown-eyed, handsome man. (I have the HL-Obsessive Gene.) I'm a good resource person: Ask and I'll look it up.
I am a 21 year old college student. I have an adorable dog, Maggie,

I'm 46, separated, mother of two sons. Am totally crazy about Methos. Only wish the reason he had so many wives was because he hasn't met me.
Finding Highlander was kismet for me -- fantasy, chivalry, swordfighting, historical flashbacks, moral dilemmas, and the beautiful Adrian Paul. Haven't felt this way since the original showing of the original Star Trek! Luckily I have a tolerant husband who admires Amanda, and two grown daughters who admire Duncan and Methos.
