Glad I tried to post this here first. Having some trouble due to the length of the piece exceeding the max allowed on LJ, and I always have a hard time deciding where to break. Doesn't help that the story moves back and forth with flashbacks. So I'm hoping people will be able to follow it.
About it being AU: I have a hard time reading a lot of AU, but this shouldn'e be too trying...You can just imagine the same cowboys we know and love in the main roles. It was the only way I could think to bring their spirits forward into to the 1980s so they can meet S&H (next story). Anyway...I told a friend on LJ this week that she shouldn't worry about trying to please others with her writing and should write what makes her happy. So that's what I did here...took my own advice.
*And I wrote my first fully 'fleshed-out' sex scene in this story...just in time for Halloween.
