    Summary

    He flexed his pointer finger, squeaking out a croak with each stretch. Kneeling down in front of the boy, Payne could practically feel Silas stiffen behind him. So maybe he was being a bit childish, a bit petty…but didn’t Silas deserve it?

    Summary

    It had been less than a year since they’d created this life together, and in that time, Silas had learned that life could mean more than making it to the next day. Ever since he’d started to think of the little cabin as home, he had something to look forward to, something to come home to.

    Summary

    In the three months since he arrived, they've barely spoken to each other. But when Silas is gravely injured, Rose comes to his aid, wondering why he's stayed so long — and why she's so glad he has.

    Summary

    Silas had said it before, but the statement held even truer now than it had previously: the kid was a wonder and lucky to be alive.

    Summary

    A young woman working a terrible job finds happiness every night watching her favorite actor's movies with her cat while drawing amazing portraits of him, wondering what it would be like if her drawings came to life. One night she falls asleep while sketching and finds out maybe meeting some of Michael Fassbender's characters isn't such a good idea.

    Dedicated to @larkistin on Tumblr who's given us the most amazing Fassy fan art! Thank you. This is my gift to you after our very long and hilarious conversation about this story.

    This is a different style of imagine, told in 3rd person with an unnamed OFC.

    Summary

    Lord in Heaven, she prayed, I commend this beast unto Your care. Rose touched her forehead and either shoulder, crossing herself before God, and then she raised the pistol level with the bobcat’s head. It closed its eyes, almost as if in relief.

    Summary

    He should have taken his new son back from Eva, he should have reassured Andrew Jay — there were a thousand things he should have done, but he felt as though some part of him had been left behind in the room with Rose.

    Summary

    Of course, there were always long dry spells without anything new — no new bounties and no new books. So Silas would return to the Hood poems. Something about the rhythm, particularly during a long day of riding, eased the dirt and dust and grime of life. The way someone could paint feelings with words — it brought a feeling Silas couldn’t explain.

    Summary

    Rose knew, and he wasn’t the least bit surprised. She knew whenever he was thinking something he wouldn’t say aloud, so why shouldn’t she be able to tell he was ill?

    Summary

    When he’d agreed to travel with Silas, Jay had expected ambushes or firefights with more criminals trying to get the better of him. What he didn’t expect was a soft-spoken man meandering through their camp, offering them drinks and cigars. It had been strange, Jay thought, but Silas didn’t seem to think so.

    Summary

    This girl had a habit of that — her pointed questions caught him off guard more than once. In fact, the very first time he’d seen her, she’d looked at him with a knowing sadness and asked him something, even though he couldn’t know what. Now, when she came out with these questions, Silas found himself answering honestly.
    That was perhaps the only thing she had in common with Jay.

    Summary

    Jay had been so taken care of, he didn’t know how to take care of himself — or anyone else, for that matter. Maybe Silas was right: It was a miracle he’d made it this far.

    Summary

    Silas had changed in hundreds of ways over the past five years. He’d felt it — the hardness creeping into his heart until he barely recognized the boy he’d once been. He’d had no qualms about stealing what he needed, keeping himself alive during his travels across the west. He thought he was a different man, made for this world, and yet each night, he closed his eyes and saw them.

    Summary

    And now, looking at the stars reflected in his son's eyes, Silas started to believe the world might not be such a bad place after all.

    Summary

    After the shootout at the Ross homestead, Rose and Silas are left to bury the dead. Life for both of them had always been about survival, but even with the looming threat of more undesirables and the unexpected responsibility of a pair of orphans, they learn there is more to life than surviving. Even in the harsh west, there can be such a thing as home.

    Summary

    He’d only wanted a hot meal.

    Instead, what he got was more death and confirmation that his outlook on life – bleak as it was – was perfectly justified.

    It wasn’t enough, but…he never wanted any of this. Not for him, not for the kid.

    Summary

    Sometimes they run into one another, chasing after the same bounty. Every single member of Payne's gang knows that he'll always let Silas collect on it, even the new ones that joined after Silas had already been long gone. Nary a one of them mentions Silas by name, though, especially when Payne's around. Some days, he really wishes that they would. Others, he's grateful for the reprieve.

    He thinks about Silas enough as it is.
