page one of a flyer for the Pros and Highlander zine called "Captured" -- "A hurt/comfort zine (due early '96) with Professional "/" stories and a novella length Highlander saga in the era of Tessa and Darius. NOT a crossover! Very adult in nature, sexually explicit and the word 'throb' is used with well-intentioned gusto! How often has each of us given some very serious, warm thoughts to holding and comforting one of our Hero/Hunks? Their strong, warm, muscular bodies have been hurt and tormented, their need for love and comfort strong and the searching, aching hearts of dear loved ones are reaching out for them. And we, the gentle readers, are the proverbial fly on the wall! For example: "IF LOOKS COULD KILL" Doyle has been a prisoner of this man once before and sparks flew! Now Parker has him again, with diabolical plans for revenge that leaves Bodie struggling tor life and Doyle in a prison of pleasure and pain for the rest of his existence..." [snipped] 'THE SWEETEST GIFT" An A/U where Doyle is Lord and Master of his House and a captured ex-warrior, now a fully trained passion slave, is given to him as a payment or honour from another lord."
page two of a flyer for the Pros and Highlander zine called "Captured" -- "Plus "HUNGRY EYES". B&D on an assignment when Bodie's car is rammed and he is kidnapped. With difficulty, Cowley controls Doyle's frustration and anger... till Bodie is found. "QUESTION OF AN APPLE".. While Doyle slowly recovers from being shot in the leg, B&D a hobbled with an intricate, but tedious, assignment that makes full use of Doyle's art knowledge. Would Bodie willingly allow himself to be used as the price for his own education and one-upmanship? Doyle's surprise might make his surrendering worth it! and, "KEEPER OF THE JUSTICE"..An A/U in space (NO relation to Star Trek!) where Bodie controls a very different type of spacecraft. While on a forced vacation, he rescues a brutally captured, illegally controlled and much prized Ellis'sian from a downed smuggler. AND, a novella length HIGHLANDER saga. "RESEARCH". Tessa is still lovingly 
held in Duncan's arms and Darius often enjoys the pleasurable company of his long time friend... till
 Duncan's secret is witnessed by a research scientist and stolen away. Richie and Tessa are willing to do
 anything to find Duncan but are hampered by the maze that is Paris. Darius can help but how far is he
 willing to go? Just a bit... [snipped] ALL stories are sexually explicit, filled with love and passion, with only the Professionals stories being "/" in nature and ALL being tantalizing. Age statement required."
