    Summary

    "He wanted to call his soul his own, not beholden to anyone but his Maker. The way he saw things, a farmer was the only man who could have that. This prairie was his home, now. He was making it so, one furrow at a time."

    This train roughly follows Almanzo through Little Town on the Prairie onward, with a backward stop or two in The Long Winter, ending on the newlywed's front steps in The First Four Years. It was inspired by the LH books, Pioneer Girl (the recently released really-truly-actually biographical Laura Ingalls Wilder publication) and my own pure brain, which first fell head over heels for Almanzo when I was wee. Also inspired by, and named for, Aaron Copland's song The Promise of Living, from "The Tender Land" - here is a lovely performance on YouTube. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tDAbNaF6EYQ

    As Laura said about her Little House books, "It may not have happend, but it was all true."

    Summary

    The country stretched out in front of them, dizzying Dean with its endless possibilities. Sometimes his elation turned the corner into panic and Castiel would lean his knee against Dean’s as the train swayed and bumped until his breathing evened out again.

    Summary

    "One of his hands remained gripping onto my hip, and the other clenched around my wrist. His words frightened me. 'Never push me away, Caroline. You are to be my wife. You will never make such a mistake again, do you understand?' - May ruin your childhood. Pre-children Ingalls Couple. M! Misogynstic Charles, with some D/s learnings and a heavy side of domestic abuse. Dark. So dark. They will eventually evolve into the characters you know and love, but I think it's more fascinating if they didn't start in the relationship we are familiar with.
