    Summary

    Arthur Morgan is fourteen years old when his father is shot dead in front of him in their small cabin somewhere in the woods of northern Maryland.

    With no one else 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.

    And then, 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 kinda canon compliant interpretation of The Van der Linde gang, mostly from Arthur's POV, from 1878-1899.)

    WARNING. As is the nature of most really long fics like this, there's a bunch of squicky stuff going forward. Mostly violence, a couple mentions of some darker stuff, but probably never anything too overly graphic. TL,DR; shit gets real sometimes.

    Updates kinda frequently, but not consistently.

    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

    “I’m not rich. I thought you were rich. I was, incidentally, planning to rob you," Dutch chuckled.

    Hosea lifted his head. Their grins mirrored each other.

    “Well then,” Hosea smiled, feeling a strange flicker of warmth and power flood through his chest, “isn’t that something?”

Passing by Hosea the duo are waved down by the elder. He instantly regrets not just jumping onto his horse with Charlotte when Dutch's voice rang out from the rot filled mansion.

    Summary

    He should of listened to Hosea. To Arthur. To John. Their time ended years ago. Dutch looked over the side of the mountain. It was his time. It should of been his time long ago. When he looked back up, he expected to find John. Instead he found Arthur. Young, with light still burning hot in his eyes. Before the world tore him apart. Right when he joined him and Hosea.

    After Sean’s death, Mary Beth asks Arthur to take her on a hunting trip, somewhere far away. What takes place at first is a simple love story: full of trials and journeys that they must endure together, as a team. But over time, things complicate. The gang is in trouble, and as Arthur and Mary Beth aim to set out on their own one day, they must find a way to help those they love while eventually, finding escape. Their ultimate goal is to go north with the Marstons, to find the bucolic stretches of Wisconsin where, rumor has it, there are lily farms. Will they make it? How will they survive when all hope seems lost? This is their story.

    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

    “You know, ‘thank you’ is more usual, when someone saves you from a beatin’.”

    The kid stuck his chin up. “I can take a beatin’.”

    From the look of him, Dutch would say that was true. And maybe he was just a scrapper, but still, Dutch didn’t like to think of a kid gettin’ beat on.

     

    Or, how Arthur met Dutch and Hosea.
