    Summary

    Dutch has become caught up in his outlandish plans once again, which is nothing new to Hosea. Except for this time, it involves an unruly teen.

    And Hosea is not happy.

    Although, he'll soon discover that maybe the boy isn't all that he seems.

    Summary

    Arthur Morgan is fourteen years old when his father is shot dead in front of him in their small cabin somewhere in the woods of northern Maryland.

    With no one else to turn to, he ventures into the wilderness by himself with only a few belongings, the clothes on his back, and very limited knowledge of how to survive.

    And then, he's taken in by a pair of charitable bandits with silver tongues, sharp wits, and big dreams of taking down civilized society to bring America back to a purer state.

    Along the way, they find more wayward souls, building up a strong group that's the closest thing to family most of them will ever have.

    Has Arthur found his place, or will his second family crumble just like his first did?

    (A kinda canon compliant interpretation of The Van der Linde gang, mostly from Arthur's POV, from 1878-1899.)

    WARNING. As is the nature of most really long fics like this, there's a bunch of squicky stuff going forward. Mostly violence, a couple mentions of some darker stuff, but probably never anything too overly graphic. TL,DR; shit gets real sometimes.

    Updates kinda frequently, but not consistently.

    Summary

    "Please leave me alone! It was just one photo!" Albert begged, eyes wide as he tried to pull against the rope binding him.

    "Jus' a photo of Van Der Linde's lap dog. We don't believe you, tell us where he is" the man sneered.

    I just wanted to make Albert interact with the gang.

    Summary

    Eight years have passed since Blackwater, Saint Denis, and the fall of the van der Linde gang. The survivors are trying to make a life for themselves – some moving on to nobler pursuits, some circling back in like carrion birds on the scores they left behind.

    And outside a town called Purgatory, West Elizabeth, a man wakes up without a scrap of memory or a name, haunted by a black wolf and a golden stag.

    Summary

    “If he ever comes back here,” He whispered to the fire, the rage pumping through his veins with every beat of his heart, “I’ll make him wish he had died.”

    Hosea gave him a look over the fire, a soft, heartbroken thing, but Arthur could find no remorse within him to give.

    Summary

    John Marston hires Arthur Morgan, a private detective, to look into the death of Heidi McCourt, a friend who he suspects was the victim of foul play rather than suicide. His investigation leads them into the middle of an escalating war between two powerful gangsters fighting for control over West Elizabeth’s bootlegging industry—both of which Arthur has unpleasant and unfinished history with.

    Ch 24: A discovery by John sheds light on Dutch's financial situation, resulting in a series of revelations and new leads for Arthur to pursue. Meanwhile a pair of troubling phone calls leave him unsettled.

    Summary

    "Hosea have you seen Arthur at all today?" Dutch couldn't help but voice his worry to his long time friend. Continuing his pacing he can hear the exasperation in Hosea's answer. Looking up from his book Hosea pins Dutch with a unwavering blue eyed stare. "He was here early this morning, he must just be out for a bit." Dutch scoffs at Hosea's words. He knows he shouldn't worry too much that Arthur always did things like this.

    But after the whole Colm thing had happened Dutch had started to watch his boy like a hawk. Arthur even voiced his opinion about his worry, but Dutch wouldn't have any of it.

    Summary

    Arthur Morgan followed his own advice and left the gang when he had a child (the canonical Eliza and Isaac), taking up as a bounty hunter. Along the way he picked up a young John Marston, who thus never runs with Dutch. Despite leaving, Arthur never truly left his connections behind him, and when Dutch asked for help, he always answered. In 1899, during the event of the game, this arrangement might eventually force Arthur to choose to whom he truly owes his loyalty.

    John sneered. "You think I'd protect Dutch Van der Linde? Believe me, if I knew where he was, I'd tell you. Hell, I'd go get him myself. He's worth 10 large right now."

    Milton sneered right back. "I am not a fool, Mister Marston, kindly do not treat me as one. You would do nothing without Arthur Morgan's say-so, and that will be what puts you on the gallows right beside him."
