    Summary

    "He began to both dread and yearn for his dreams—uneasy over what he might see, but still filled with inescapable longing just to be near the two of them."

    After having lost Eliza & Isaac and avenging their deaths, Arthur struggles to cope and keeps his grief intensely private, refraining from even journaling about them. His intense emotions grapple with him until they leak into his dreams, the only outlet he's left for them. Memories first, then regrets, then wishes and lovely imaginings for what could've been.

    *This is the third work in a series. While you can absolutely read it as is, it might make a little more sense if you read "Only Fools Hold onto Hope" and Part 2 of "Disaster Road" first. This works picks up after "Disaster Road" chronologically.*

    **While this work is not graphic, there will be one chapter that is very emotionally intense. I know it might seem like it from the tags, and it does have some fluff, but this is not totally a white-picket-fence story!**

    ***New chapters added regularly! And comments always welcome!***

    Summary

    Arthur Morgan did not intend to survive when he gave his hat to John Marston and stayed behind to gain his redemption. As he crawled towards his final resting place, he never intended to wake up again.

    But he does wake up. Thanks to time travelers Francis Sinclair and Charles Smith, Arthur's life has been saved by a Saint Denis hospital in the year 2021. The two men were under orders from a mysterious figure known only as The Traveler to save Arthur, as a reward for turning his life around. While Arthur's tuberculosis is on the mend, he finds he has unfortunately developed a nasty case of PTSD from his brush with death. To cope, he goes to live on a Big Valley cattle ranch owned by Jackson and Victoria Linton, two of Mary Linton's descendants. The siblings quickly become Arthur's new family, though Arthur is especially taken with Victoria.

    Navigating the strangeness of waking up in a different century soon takes a spot on the back burner when a ghost from the past begins to threaten the ranch. Arthur must prove whether he really is a redeemed man as he faces a choice between his old life and the new home he has made in 2021.

    Summary

    In 1985, Jim Milton is celebrating his 90th birthday, but he doesn't remember much of those 90 years. He does remember the man and woman from so long ago who saved him as a child, but how are they here now, not looking a day older than when he last saw them in 1899?

    A narrative of Red Dead Redemption 2 in which Arthur Morgan meets Grace Bellerose, a strange woman with an extraordinary secret.

    Contains major character deaths as everyone who dies in the game, dies in this story.

     [Summary in progress, I'm trying to improve it. *insert Geocities under construction gif here*]

    Summary

    That strange light in Hani's Bethel does more than just shine down on Arthur, and he takes away more than just a few trinkets. There are some things that cannot be explained, certain events that cannot be controlled, but life must continue on and time stops for no man.

    ---
    A reimagining of that strange little UFO encounter in the game.

    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.

    This story follows the gang and includes events that happened pre-game. It was originally going to be a series of one-shots but grew into a character study of sorts. The gang has been through its fair share of heartbreak, but there was also a lot of good in the past.

    Summary

    A seasoned player of Red Dead Redemption II stumbles upon a new Stranger mission during one of his playthroughs. Turns out Rockstar hid an entire series of Stranger missions as an Easter egg, only to be triggered when certain conditions are met.

    The missions unfold a relationship between Arthur Morgan and Olivia Leland, his second love interest. As she struggles with her identity as the bastard child of Mr. Leland, owner of Leland Oil Development Company, her past catches up with her and she loses her innocence, eventually morphing into a shrewd and calculated businesswoman.

    Her actions cause a ripple effect in canonical storyline and it forces Arthur Morgan to an unexpected position.

    Contains extrapolation of the following Points of Interest/ Easter Eggs in RDR2 (still expanding list):
    *Arthur’s first bank robbery
    *Oil company letter to Cornwall
    *Oil Derrick
    *Limpany

    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.

    Extremely slow updates. Still no plans of cancelation.
