    Summary

    Arthur knows he's dying, can feel the unstoppable pull of it, feels the spirit appear behind him to take him along. And yet, he finds he does not want to die. There is so much that went wrong, so much he regrets and he wishes, with all his being, he could change it. Could at least ensure those that managed to get away really make it out alive.

    A second chance, he asks, begs, really. Just give me the chance to save them.

    The being behind him pauses and Arthur can't look away from the moment he's frozen in, staring at the dark mountainside, aching to see the sun rise just one more time.

    One chance, the spirit seems to whisper, voice satin soft. Make the most of it.

    Summary

    “I ain’t sure. . .I don’t like being confused, Charles.”

    He lets out a heavy sigh, his shoulders drooping with it.

    “I feel even more stupid now. I should know this.”

    “It’s not an easy thing to know.”

     

    Coming to terms with your sexuality is never easy. It’s especially trying when you’re a middle-aged man in 1899. Fortunately, you’ll find you’re not alone in your feelings.

    Summary

    Charles has never intended to end up in a gang. There's a danger involved when creatures like him spend too long with a group. The wolf was lonely, though. At the end of the day, maybe Charles was too.

    (In which everything is mostly the same, but Charles is hiding a hairy secret.)

    Summary

    Talk, talk, talk-

    It was all everyone in camp did, but Arthur-

    Arthur listened. Listened to him, a lone wolf, a "taciturn dimwit", as he'd been called more than once. The man with the broadest shoulders Charles' had ever seen, face marred by years of the life of an outlaw, looked to him every night over the fire and seemed to soften. Seemed to relax after a day's work- lord knows Arthur was one of very few who kept the entire gang from falling apart at the seams. All of his work, done day after day, he did without complaint. Without denial. It was just what needed to be done. The hunting, the skinning, the fishing, the foraging, the robbing, the stealing, the intimidating, it all had to be done and Arthur... Arthur always seemed to be the one doing it.
