    Summary

    John scoops up the bird feathers tenderly and peers at them in the dark. They're clean and fluffed, having belonged to a bluejay. One of them has a white streak down the center and he admires it in the dark, his eyes aching to take in the details before he hears horse hooves in the distance. He looks up in alarm, knowing that their camp was well-secluded and hidden from strangers. John holds the feathers against his chest and readies himself to run before he spots Arthur's horse in the brush, trotting and huffing angrily.

    Something's wrong. He can tell by the horse's attitude and the way that Arthur directs it through the leaves and sticks. John takes a step forward and the horse starts pulling against the reins, Arthur cursing the animal before he spots John.

    "Johnny!" he wants to spit at the name, but he sees something in Arthur's arms. Small, cradled in his thick blue coat. Arthur's face is drawn in desperation and John sprints to the horse's side, taking hold of it's reins. "Get-get-get-get-"

    He's never heard Arthur stutter so hard. The older man's teeth are chattering and he's looking at the bundle in his arms with desperation.

    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

    In the early 1890s, the Van der Linde Gang were truly at their finest. Experts at stealing from the rich and giving to the poor, they've made a name for themselves across the West. Two of their newest recruits, a pair of rebellious Irish siblings with an unknown past, slowly find their footing and settle into their new lives as outlaws.
    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?

    Summary

    He didn’t know when he first realised that Dutch could get… caught up in things.

    He’d recognised the melancholy, of course. He was prone to those kinds of moods himself, though never as deep as Dutch seemed to fall into them.

    The last year was, of course, an exception he wished he could have avoided.

    But those were only so apparent because Dutch usually shined so, so brightly. So brightly, that sometimes Hosea worried he was going to burn himself right up.

    Because if Hosea wasn’t careful, one of these days Dutch was going to drive them all over the cliffedge with one of his plans.

    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."

    My interpretation of the Van der Linde gang, mostly Arthur's POV, 1878-1899

    Greed, money, and larceny. These are the only things Arthur has ever known; the only things he’s ever been taught. But when Dutch decides to hit a town called Harlow, what started out as nothing more than a plan to rob the local bank ends up igniting the events that lead to RDR2, and a 24 year-old Arthur is forced to confront his morality while the gang faces a terrifying enemy of their own making.

    Summary

    Dutch sat outside his tent, puffing on his cigar as he watched Jack and Eleanor playing in the dirt not too far away. Leaning back he smiled, setting the cigar between his teeth as he thought quietly. He didn't think he'd make it this far. Or have a kid, and have Hosea as a mate of all things.
    Life was rough and unexpected, and Dutch smiled as he thought about it.

    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.
