Misconceptions is a mpreg slash series of Highlander stories by Diana Williams on a CD and in print form.

From a distributor, Agent With Style regarding the CD: "The shared double-quickening that occurred in "Revelations" has an unexpected side effect, one that changes the lives of Methos and Duncan MacLeod dramatically when they discover that Methos is pregnant! Now these two Immortals have to work out how to deal with the situation and their own shaky relationship. Captured on a single CD in a customized jewel case, which contains the full Misconceptions series, all artwork and music associated with the story, plus extras like Methos' and Duncan's wedding scrapbook, pictures from their honeymoon, and a brand new short story interlude."

From Agent With Style regarding the print zines: "This novel by Diana Williams explores the idea of what might happen when two quickenings happen simultaneously, to two Immortals standing very close together. Such an event took place in the episode "Revelation 6:8" to Duncan MacLeod and Methos. When unimaginable power, memories and self are shared in such close quarters, it causes an unexpected side effect, one that changes the lives of Methos and Duncan dramatically when they discover that Methos is pregnant -- with twins! Lore as old as Methos says that Immortals are sterile, that they cannot bear children at all, and Duncan's 400 years' worth of experiences has backed that up. But a double-quickening seems to have circumvented this immutable law, and now these two Immortals have to work out how to deal with the situation and their own shaky relationship. From the wedding all the way to labor and beyond, with some very odd food cravings thrown in for good measure, this huge novel captures every loving, infuriating, sweet moment of life with a very pregnant Methos, and his bemused, often befuddled husband. In two full-sized, double-columned volumes -- page count 410."

Reactions and Reviews

Wonderfully written with a lot of amazing little details. The characterizations are so spot on you don't realize the story's not canon. Absolutely hilarious in some spots and at other times the beauty and emotion will bring a tear to the eye. Mpreg isn't usually my cup of tea, unless it is made believable. The way this one is written, it fits in with the mythology of Immortals without clashing with the idea that they can't have children. Extremely well done and well worth reading. [1]
