Summary: “Times are rough and the future is not as brilliant as people hoped it would be. Half the country’s a desert the other half constantly fighting winter. Access to technology is restricted, watched over by a corrupt government and people have turned back to a simpler way of life.

Jensen’s a rancher with a ranch that hangs on a by threat. He struggles to make ends meet. Now someone powerful wants to take away what has been in his family for generations. His land. And that someone is willing to kill.

Jared’s a rebel, in the truest sense of the word. He fights for freedom, against half of the government and is always, always on the front line. But then a mission turns too hot and Jared’s forced into hiding. As luck will have it he ends up as a ranch hand on Jensen’s isolated land in the mountains.

Fighting the same enemy is, what pushes them together in the end.”

ART: Masterpost

Please go and look at [livejournal.com profile] digitalwave's awesome Art Post Masterpost and leave comments. It was so much fun doing this year's Big Bang with her. Thank you so much [livejournal.com profile] digitalwave for the pieces of art you created. It was a pleasure working with you on this and I love that you came up with such great ideas.

My first Thank you goes to my beta readers [livejournal.com profile] parka_girl and [livejournal.com profile] silverraven. You guys helped me so much with your comments and suggestions.
You are awesome. All remaining mistakes are, of course, mine.

Another big Thank you to [livejournal.com profile] softcake_70 , who actually came up with the plot for this fic. If it wasn't for her I wouldn't even have considered writing cowboys or would have had the idea to combine cowboys and futuristic utopia. Thank you for helping me through the idea finding process.

Thanks to all of those who have been holding my hand through all of this, so basically half my flist. You guys are awesome and I really appreciate all the encouragements and comments. I know I says this every year but it's true. Five years is a long time and I really appreciate all the support.

This was written for the 2012 round for [livejournal.com profile] spn_j2_bigbang.
Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] wendy and [livejournal.com profile] thehighwaywoman for running this for six years now and it's my fifth. Wow.

Title and Chapter titles taken from Bruce Springsteen's newest album "Wrecking Ball". When I heard this for the first time in March I knew I had my title for the story and the overall theme. Those songs just fit so very well that I couldn't resist using them as the guide line during editing.

There is, of course, a Soundtrack:

* These are the songs that inspired me during writing.

1. Bruce Springsteen -- Rocky Ground
2. The BossHoss -- Don't Gimme That
3. Ivy Quainoo -- Do you like what you see
4. Stefanie Heinzmann -- My Man Is A Mean Man
5. Bruce Springsteen -- Shackled and Drawn
6. Christian Kane -- Different Kinda Knight
7. 30 Odd Foot of Grunt -- Other Ways of Speeking
8. Alex Clare -- Too Close
9. Keane -- Disconnected
10. Bruce Springsteen -- We take Care of our Own
