    Summary

    They all look to their leader for news of the so-called grand ferry heist. He dismounts and lets them gather, lets them shower him with questions and worrisome queries when they notice absent members and potentially fatal wounds on others. Dutch doesn’t hear a single one. He lets the noise wash over him like great oceanic waves until they’re quiet enough he can calmly issue commands like the robbery wasn’t an entire shit show.

    Summary

    Arthur Morgan is fourteen years old when his father is killed in front of him in their small cabin in Maryland. With no one to turn to, he ventures into the wilderness by himself with only a few belongings, the clothes on his back, and very limited knowledge of how to survive. Then, when all seems lost, he's taken in by a pair of charitable bandits with silver tongues, sharp wits, and big dreams of taking down civilized society to bring America back to a purer state.

    Along the way, they find more wayward souls, building up a strong group that's the closest thing to family most of them will ever have. Has Arthur found his place, or will his second family crumble just like his first did?

    A fairly canon-compliant interpretation of The Van der Linde Gang, mostly from Arthur's point of view, 1878-1899.

    WARNING. There's some ugly topics in this fic every now and then. Mostly violence, a few mentions of some darker stuff, but probably never anything too overly graphic; though, there'll be trigger warnings before the start of the chapter. Even still, viewer discretion is advised.

    Updates are slow, due to life being kinda sucky. No plans for cancelation.

    Summary

    “I keep meeting all the right people— at all the wrong times.”

    For young Arthur Morgan, everyday is a fight for his life. Already, his short lived luck has turned sour and he’s once again facing that nagging fear that he won’t make it to see winter let alone the rest of fall. Things seem to be going his way, finally, when a man who doesn’t fit the look of the rest of the farmers in town appears to be an easy enough target to steal from.

    But a now seemingly life long commitment makes him wish he had chosen anyone else to rob.

    Arthur hasn’t run with a gang since the remains of the company his father kept had turned him into prey. But Dutch Van der Linde makes shiny promises that gleam like treasure and Hosea Matthews assures him they’re the furthest thing from a gang. It’s not where he wants to be, and he doesn’t know if he can trust them, but at least he isn’t fighting for his life anymore.

    Summary

    John watched the farmer, now flanked by two other men, string up a noose, and throw it over a branch of the oak.

    No more questions, then.

    He had a good couple of years, he supposed. Didn’t think he’d make it too long anyway, but at least he could be John, just for a little bit. Even if it was scary and cold and hungry, at least he was free.

    Or

    John's experiences as a half-feral deeply traumatised trans boy getting adopted by a gang of outlaws.

    Summary

    “If he ever comes back here,” He whispered to the fire, the rage pumping through his veins with every beat of his heart, “I’ll make him wish he had died.”

    Hosea gave him a look over the fire, a soft, heartbroken thing, but Arthur could find no remorse within him to give.

    The year John left and what could have been.

    Summary

    Dutch has become caught up in his outlandish plans once again, which is nothing new to Hosea. Except for this time, it involves an unruly teen.

    And Hosea is not happy.

    Although, he'll soon discover that maybe the boy isn't all that he seems.

    This story follows the gang and includes events that happened pre-game. It was originally going to be a series of one-shots but grew into a character study of sorts. The gang has been through its fair share of heartbreak, but there was also a lot of good in the past.

    Summary

    Lizzie isn’t worried, not at first, when Uncle Dutch and Micah ride back to camp without her father with them.

    That’s not to say she believed Micah when he says her father has just “wandered off again” after he saw the meeting with Colm O’Driscolls was going… not well exactly, but that there had been no need to resort to violence, but she trusts Uncle Dutch when he nods, him adding with a knowing grin that they’ll be seeing Arthur soon, most likely with some new rare pelt slung over the back of Athena’s rump, with enough meat that they’ll be feasting for days.

    But as the hours start to stretch and day turns to night, the fear that something has gone wrong, that something terrible has happened to her father, becomes very real as it starts to sinks it claws deep in to her chest.
