    Summary

    In a spur of the moment decision, Dutch and Hosea rescue a young boy from a beating in some backwater town.

    Trouble is, now they’re not entirely sure what to do with him, and this whole ‘parenting’ thing is a lot more difficult than Dutch thought it would be.

    Summary

    Hosea Matthews has been in the conning business for years. It’s how he survives and sustains he and his wife, Bessie, following after Dutch Van Der Linde and his hopeful preaching about his America and the true meaning of freedom. They’re robbers, thieves, killers and murderers.

    So why has Dutch brought a boy back to their hideout in the San Francisco hotel?

    Hosea Matthews must take a closer look at himself and the man he calls his best friend in order to understand why this young boy has been dropped into his life, and what exactly he is supposed to do for him. Does he allow this teenager to become a killer like them? Does he let the boy grow into a man followed by ghosts of his past that visit only in the dark, or does he step up and make a change?

    Summary

    She's Dutch's princess, he Dutch's son. A life spent growing and learning together leads to growth and lessons learned.

    When things go to plan, they're great. When they don't? Sometimes it takes more than faith to deal with that. Sometimes it takes being beside the one person who has been there from the start, and who will be there till the end.

    Thank god Ava has someone like that.

    Summary

    Cautiously, he walked over to the fire. The dark-haired man noticed he was up and about not long before Arthur reached them. "Ah, hello, son. How ya feeling?" He asked.

    "Better," Arthur replied simply, deciding to not tell the man he still felt a bit like shit. All things considered, he was still doing better now than he had been even before the coyote had gotten him. Save for the fact that he still hadn't eaten, but it wasn't one of his biggest concerns right now.

    The younger man stood to his feet and seemed to size Arthur up for a few moments before he stuck out his hand for him to shake. "My name is Dutch van der Linde, and this here," He pointed to the other man with his free hand while Arthur shook his extended one, "is my associate, Mr. Hosea Matthews. What's your name, son?"

    "Arthur Morgan," Arthur replied, feeling a bit silly to use his full name. He hadn't needed to for a while now.

    "Well, then, Arthur Morgan, come take a seat by the fire."

    Summary

    When set out to meet the O’Driscolls for the first time Arthur meets his soulmate. He just happened to get the worst one, and under the worst possible circumstances/ backgrounds as well. Along the way he deals with being an older brother, his parents that are hellbent in educating him, learning, and crippling depression because of PTSD.

    Side story: watch John grow up in a gang where he has high functioning autism. (I did my research). Watch how he struggles to communicate and navigate a world of outlaws. Most importantly how he deals with gunfire because that shit’s too loud.

    Summary

    A collection of stories set before the events of RDR2.
     

    “Does it hurt?”

    “Nah. It’s fine.”

    Fine. It’s fine. Everything is always fine. He’s been lying to him for a while now. And he wonders why he still does it. What kind of horrible truths has he been hiding from him? From them. Hosea tried, at least a few times already. But nothing came out of the boy’s mouth, apart from the usual “No, Sir” and “I don’t wanna talk about it” followed by silence. He seems to open up only when Dutch talks to him. But despite his growing curiosity, Arthur doesn’t say anything. He just cuts and cuts until John’s hair gets shorter.

    Summary

    A collection of stories set before the events of RDR2.

     

    “There you go again, acting like it’s all about you.”

    Arthur sits up in his bed, stretching his arms in front of him, head still clouded from the night’s sleep. For a moment he wonders if Hosea’s voice belongs to a dream, but Dutch’s lifeless laugh settles the matter. It’s real. Hosea is back from his escapade.
