(er, for those who read this before? It's the sea one, just with a different title.)
Summary: Dean remembers Texas as blackland stretching in marker-thick strips of vivid brown and black, broken with the sprawling metroplexes of Dallas and San Antonio and Houston; farms spread with the yellow tops of maize waving in pre-autumn winds, threshers moving complacently through the fields with drowsy men in hats waving at the road. He remembers green and gold fields dotted with cows, half-year calves running on the outskirts of the herds. He remembers these were what he saw between jobs, lives being lived that had nothing to do with creeping twilight and sleeping only behind salt circles and ritual wards.
Author Notes: I have--a lot of people. samdonne issued the challenge back in January for a Dean meets John Sheppard that I couldn't--quite--get out of my head when I asked for prompts, which means I hit a record of answring four of my own prompts. My flist who pre-read and sometimes brutally critiqued (this I love you for), those who stuck around to the end and told me what they liked and what they didn't. cjandre, rheasilva, svmadelyn, eleveninches, and amireal who picked it to pieces and put it back together again. If I missed anyone, my apologies. I think pretty much everyone on my flist January through March who left such helpful and inspiring commentary seriously deserves some kind of award for watching me try to write the rough draft of a novel live.
