    Summary

    June, 1884

    "Run. RUN!"

    Like a wild horse, afraid of domestication, afraid of being broken and used. I didn’t care for the consequences anymore. I didn’t care if my running would attract more attention. I needed to escape and get to freedom. The thought of being caught and thrown back in there motivated me to keep going. All the years of abuse and torture at the hands of the very people who had devoted their lives to God. The lives of my friends and the memory of the ones that passed kept me going. I needed to escape to save my own life.

    When I was a little girl, my understanding of revenge was as simple as the Sunday School proverbs it hid behind. Neat little morality slogans, like 'Do unto others,' and 'Two wrongs don't make a right.' For the truly wronged, real satisfaction can only be found in one of two places: absolute forgiveness or mortal vindication.

    My story is not about forgiveness.

    Summary

    The gang has survived worse than this. Friends killed, money lost, and trouble still chasing them. But they were together as a family again and that should be all that mattered. Yet, Dutch's plans are growing crazier even with Hosea to speak against them. They're risking their lives for foolish gains and with Micah in Dutch's ear, there seems to be no end in sight. Worse, Arthur has pulled Charlotte further into the gang instead of out. The Pinkertons are closing in on them and if Arthur wants to survive, he needs to decide where to keep his loyalty: to himself or to the man leading them down a path of destruction.

    Summary

    Trouble always seems to be hot on your heels.

    It's been a year since you were framed for the murder of a Mr. LeClerk of Blackwater and freed from Sisika Penitentiary by his widow, who swore vengeance on his true assassins. It's been a couple of months now since Mr. LeClerk was avenged and since then you've been all across the country; doing some legally questionable jobs such as starting up your own moonshine business.

    One day you decide to take a break from all that visit some friends in Ambarino, a couple by the names of Sadie and Jake Adler. You arrive, however, to Jake's corpse ditched in a wagon, Sadie nowhere to be seen, and O'driscolls partying it up inside of the home.

    You just wanted to see your friends, kick up your feet and perhaps enjoy a bourbon or two—but alas, trouble always seems to find you. But this time, he has a name.

    Summary

    These thieves, these murderers, they flock the streets, shield themselves in mountain rock, stalk the innocent from the withering grasses of the plains. But the blood that stains your hands, stains your gun, paints you just like it does them, it doesn’t seep past the skin. It’s not from within, who you are.

    You kill for a reason. Rob for a reason. A good one.

    You, Dutch, are different. Everyone around you seems to think the same.

     

    And that’s enough.

    ——————————

    A fanfic that takes place before the events of RDR2, covering everything from how Dutch and Hosea met up until The Blackwater Massacre.

    Summary

    Dutch caught Hosea's shoulder as he turned away.

    "Come on now, Old Girl, you're not–"

    The pet name was what did it. Hosea ripped his arm from his shoulder, pulling his revolver and shoving it into his chest. "I. Wasn't. Askin'."

    Dutch and Micah return to Clemens Point without Arthur. Hosea does not agree with their synopsis that all is well.

    Summary

    The Flower Of The Old West

     

    A Flower that never withers,

    chases the end of the world in dithers,

    A Grim Reaper's black hand

    searches for the pesty soul that roams the land.

    The Flower keeps her ground,

    the Reaper leers in spellbound.

    She is the Flower of the Old West,

    And He is the one who harvests for the professed.

    Hardships in life had shaped Y/n into a curious character. Nothing in her lifetime had been joyful and pleasing. She had secrets she could not tell, a voice she could not use, and a desire to hit big. The problem is she has a death-defying outlaw that is worse than God’s punishment and the only way to be finally free is by killing him. This is a man’s world, her world. And she ain't letting anyone stand in her way, especially him, who just likes to make her life miserable.

    Summary

    Arthur and Javier don’t find John in chapter one, but O’Driscolls do.

    —“oh my Lord…” Arthur’s knees buckle and time slows down.
    There’s a chorus of reactions around him. Charles drops the axe, shaking hands coming up to cover his mouth. Javier drops his knife and steps forward, staring wide eyed like he can’t believe what he’s seeing. Sadie swears and turns away. Bill takes a step back, eyes bulging, face contorted in disgust. Lenny sputters, gasping in horror.
    His breath catches in his throat, a shrill sorrowful cry cuts through the air, it comes from him. His hands clasp the sides of the box so tight it feels like his fingers would snap. His vision is blurred instantly, but the sight of John was burned into his brain. It’s all he can see.
    “Goddammit!” Arthur cries out, “oh Johnny no…” What have they done to him?

    And yet, as they grow older, threats from all sides begin to appear. A strained relationship with Colm O'Driscoll spells disaster for the gang, and no matter how far they roam across America, the world continues to change around them. If they want to survive, difficult choices must be made.
    No one is as they seem and the impending arrival of law and order threatens to tear the siblings, and everything they hold dear, apart. Is it too late for anyone to find a happy ending?
