    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

    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
    Updates are spotty recently. I just got a new boyfriend, and corona panic sucks my creativity dry sometimes. Don't worry, I ain't abandoning this.

    Summary

    12 YEARS BEFORE THE EVENTS OF RED DEAD REDEMPTION II

    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.
