    Summary

    Arthur Morgan is fourteen years old when his father is killed in front of him in their small cabin in Maryland. With no one 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. Then, when all seems lost, 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.

    A fairly canon-compliant interpretation of The Van der Linde Gang, mostly from Arthur's point of view, 1878-1899.

    WARNING. There's some ugly topics in this fic every now and then. Mostly violence, a few mentions of some darker stuff, but probably never anything too overly graphic; though, there'll be trigger warnings before the start of the chapter. Even still, viewer discretion is advised.

    Updates are slow, due to life being kinda sucky. No plans for cancelation.

    Summary

    Finally Dutch looked at him. "I'm not the law, Arthur. I won't give chase until I grow fatigued and then wait for somebody else to bring you to me. I will hunt you off the highest cliff and into the deepest canyon if I must. And if you doubt my stamina or my will, well then you have made a very poor judgement of my character."

    Yet again, words of devotion delivered with threat. Arthur's gut tugged in a way that had nothing to do with his stomach. "Yeah, well, poor judgement is in my character."

    A young Arthur tries to navigate the complexities spanning a decade of his relationship with Dutch.

    Summary

    Bessie has always – without fail – made Hosea feel at peace with himself, with what he has and has not done. She’s pressed a kiss to the back of his neck for every sin he’s committed; She’s held his head in her hands as he lays on his knees in front of her, lamenting his past.

    Summary

    “I keep meeting all the right people— at all the wrong times.”

    For young Arthur Morgan, everyday is a fight for his life. Already, his short lived luck has turned sour and he’s once again facing that nagging fear that he won’t make it to see winter let alone the rest of fall. Things seem to be going his way, finally, when a man who doesn’t fit the look of the rest of the farmers in town appears to be an easy enough target to steal from.

    But a now seemingly life long commitment makes him wish he had chosen anyone else to rob.

    Arthur hasn’t run with a gang since the remains of the company his father kept had turned him into prey. But Dutch Van der Linde makes shiny promises that gleam like treasure and Hosea Matthews assures him they’re the furthest thing from a gang. It’s not where he wants to be, and he doesn’t know if he can trust them, but at least he isn’t fighting for his life anymore.

    Summary

    Some days he wanted to strangle Dutch. To shake him and scream in his face and slap sense into him. But when Dutch looked at him, eyes dark and shaking violently, needing to be taken apart, he’d go soft, too, and take him to a cabin he prepared near wherever they’d settled down, and Dutch always came out of it better.

    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.

    The year John left and what could have been.
