    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?

The winter of 1879 changed her path forever. Now, it was up to Alma to see this new life through for all its happiness, sorrow, and challenges.

    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

    Summary

    “His eyes settle on Arthur with indifference, calm, collected, used to half crazed men busting down his door at 3 am after fleeing their homes, apparently.

    “Then, will you tell me what happened?” he asks, and Arthur blinks, holding Copper closer to his chest and heaving a sigh. Where the hell should he start?
     

    Following the murder of his wife and child, Arthur finds himself faced with an invisible obstacle that he can't surpass. What everyone expected to be grief turns out to be much, much more as Arthur finds himself not only losing his last threads of sanity but also the loose grip he had had on what's left of his life. What will he do when the impossible comes to haunt him?

    Summary

    Out of all the ideas Dutch and Hosea have schemed up, thrusting Arthur into the role of older brother had to be the most ill-advised yet. Taking care of others, especially a boy with fire in his eyes and mischief in his heart, was far beyond his skill set. Destruction seeped from Arthur's fingers, laying waste to every good thing that ever came his way. It was only a matter of time before he would lead the boy to ruin.

    This story follows John growing up from Arthur's perspective. Arthur struggles with the responsibility of being an older brother, particularly being looked up to, as his own actions cut away at his soul and his self-worth continues to erode. He teaches John different things along the way--with varying degrees of success--and strives to protect him from harm. This is easier said than done, as is Arthur's desire to prevent the kid from becoming like him.

    Summary

    Arthur’s hurting bad, and Dutch doesn’t know how to fix it.

    Luckily, Hosea might have a solution.

    It’s small, wriggly, and likes to eat boots.

    Summary

    Excerpt from Ch1;
    “A thief and murderer, my ass.” Arthur’d grumbled, arms crossed and hat tipped forward over his forehead. “Now you just gotta to stand there and look as pitiful as always and the ladies’ll just dance right up to ya.” He continued and swatted at the boy’s attempt to kick his shin. The second attempt was cut short, however, when Miss Grimshaw gripped him roughly by the ear and Hosea chided him loudly for moving.

    Summary

    In Dutch's mind, it's simple. They're outlaws. The Bastard is the only God who'd take them.

    The Gods, as usual, don't care much for human expectations.

    (Or: funeral conventions in the van der Linde gang, if RDR2 had the theology of Lois McMaster Bujold's World of the Five Gods.)

    Summary

    A collection of stories set before the events of RDR2.
     

    He is scared, terrified, and the way his heart beats inside of his chest makes him all jittery. He notices that Hosea’s hair has gotten longer now, and that his time spent basking in the sun with Bessie gave him a few freckles around the nose. Arthur suddenly wants to go back to the little cottage. Go back to simple things, to an easier life. Bessie would probably know what to say. She’s always had a way with words. Making them less blunt, less hurtful. Prettier.

    Hosea’s hand goes from Arthur’s shoulder to the nape of his neck, similar to the way Dutch’s did when he last saw him, but this time there are no ill intentions hidden behind the action.

    “Afraid?” Hosea asks.

    “Nah. I'm fine.” Lies.
