Fanfic100 fic recs pt. 1

Title: A Thousand Square Miles of Wide Open
Author: ErinRua
Fandom: Supernatural
Characters: Dean, OC
Prompt:  026 Teammates
Rating: PG
Warnings: None
Summary: Dean gets in touch with his inner cowboy. Set pre-series, shortly before Season 1, when Dean was flying solo.
Why: Erin wrote this in reply to my prompt for Cowboy!Dean, and wow, did she deliver!

As I said in my journal at the time: “Erin makes us feel every agonizing mile Dean has to suffer on horseback [to get to where he has a job to do]. Her landscape descriptions are very vivid, and you can almost smell the desert or touch the dust. OC Chris is likable and credible. He’s your typical cowboy: gruff, a man of few words, and clearly in love with his land and willing to do whatever it takes to keep it.”

Why the prompt teammates? Dean and Chris have to work together, each using his own skill set, to get the job done. And while Dean is definitely out of his depth in the first section of the story, the tables get turned in the second half, which makes for an interesting contrast.
