: It’s the “Ranch AU” that Gallifreyburning wrote tags for on Tumblr ages ago. But I got this wild plot bunny and she said I could write it, so I’m going to do that. I don’t think I’ve ever done a real AU before, in the “alternate universe” sense of the phrase. I usually do “universe altered.” But this is one of those AUs that basically just takes the characters and a semblence of who they are and drops them in a coffee shop or a desert island or in this case, the American Western Frontier circa 1910. So if that is Not Your Thing, that’s totally cool, man. For the rest of you, SADDLE UP.Caveat
: I’m writing this slowly, while I am working on other projects. So I will not be updating frequently. (that’s what she said.) Except I really like the idea.The Idea
What if Rassilon was this incredibly powerful rancher, and Ten his academic son, and Rose Tyler the orphan neighbor next door? Man From Snowy River meets Every Western Ever. Co-starring Nine as the reclusive mountaineer/Ten’s brotp, who reluctantly leaves his hermit cave to come help Ten save Rose from his father’s clutches, but totally falls in love with her. Except he knows Ten has a thing for her, so he’s going to manfully step aside. But Rose falls in love with them both, so, what’s a girl to do?! Yes, ma’am, you ARE thinking what I am thinking. Add in a dash of gold mining, water right skirmishes, and some family secrets, and you can see why I immediately started plotting out a thing. Caveat #2
I’m not picking a specific state. I’ve been researching ranches all over Wyoming and Montana, but I need a big city like Denver for 1910, but I'm not especially fond of expert research, so I am being intentionally vague about the location. So if it seems vague, it is. Anything else
Anything else I forgot or mistakes, msg me and I will answer and/or fix!
Okay. Hope you like it.
