    Summary

    “Do you know what day it is, Arthur?”
    The question hit Arthur in the face like a harsh slap, because the moment the words left Dutch’s mouth, he did know.
    “God damn it,” he choked, "Dutch, I-. We gotta find him.”

    Summary

    After being captured and tortured by the O'Driscolls, Arthur is a changed man. Now, it's not that he's never been tortured or beaten up before. No, he has been more times than he cared to admit. No... they did something far worse to him and it's gonna take the whole gang to set things right.

    Summary

    Arthur’s ears swivel in the direction of Calliope’s galloping closer well before Hosea hears anything. 

    “He’s back, is he?”, he asks absently.

    Arthur’s about to huff out a reply when he smells someone with Dutch. There’s Calliope’s scent, there’s Dutch, and there’s someone else.

    “Whuff”, he barks in warning, pulling himself out of his relaxed position beside the tree line. Hosea’s gaze snaps to him and he stands. He can make them out through the trees now. His eyes widen. 

    “Arthur, out of sight!”

    Arthur hesitates for a split second. If it’s an enemy, he won’t be far. He bounds off, just behind the brush, near enough to strike should he need to, and tamps down the growl in his throat.

    Why would Dutch bring someone back to camp?
    Caliope thunders in. Dutch sits proud in the saddle, holding… a lump of dirt. What? It sniffles.

    A boy. 

    (Arthur gains a brother, a very human brother, who absolutely cannot know about how he sometimes has a muzzle.)

    This is a direct continuation from Finding Arthur, but can be read as a stand alone.

    Summary

    Matted, unkempt hair framing a tiny gaunt face, too dirty to subscribe to any colour. A face that Hosea first thinks is dark skinned, but realises belatedly that it’s just that dirty. Dried blood cakes the boy’s cheeks. Naked, crouched, smelling and moving for all the world like any other wild animal, he tears into some jerky rations Hosea bought a couple towns back like they’ll disappear any second. It’s the desperate urgency of needing the food gone as soon as possible because otherwise it will be taken. He hardly breathes for stuffing his grimy face. It’s unsurprising coupled with the fact that the cuts of dried meat look bigger than the boy’s ribs, of which Hosea can see each and every one plainly jutting through his tortured skin. He looks all of forty five pounds, with five being attributed to muck.

    Hosea’s breath all leaves him at once, but neither of them make a sound. All the same, the boy’s head shoots up, meeting their eyes with wide, startlingly pigmented eyes. Hosea hardly sees him move, but in the next couple seconds he’s gone, jerky and all.

    (Hosea and Dutch find a boy who is maybe probably human and likes beans.)

    Summary

    Arthur let himself soften, turned to keep his eyes on the fire that glowed warm against the biting cold of the morning. “I know,” He said. “Things ain’t good for us right now, but… it ain’t safe. You know what the O’Driscolls are like, for folk like me.”

    “I’ve watched you kill, Arthur,” Said Pearson, and there was a flicker of that old fear deep in his eyes, never quite gone away. The smartest part of him still that blustering navy man taking command of the cooking to hide how terrified he was of them. Fear that was faint, but still sour, on the still air. “I’ve seen what you do to idiots who pick fights with us. You werewolves aren’t that fragile.”

    “We ain’t that strong, neither,” Arthur told him.

     

    The Pinkertons have been lost in the snow, and the law has bigger game on its mind. The O'Driscolls aren't as easy to lose.

    Summary

    “More about that later. First, I have something for you both.” You excuse yourself from the table and head to your room, grabbing two small parcels wrapped in brown paper and tied with string. “Here.” You smile, giving them both a kiss on the cheek as you hand them the parcels.

    "You said it yourself, didn't you? " He asked Dutch, a hint of a smirk on his lips and head to one side, "you can't fight nature. You can't fight gravity."

    Summary

    "They were in public, and there were law officers after them. They could come down on the two at any moment—and wouldn’t that be something? Finding the two men you're after for robbing a bank making love to each other in an alley."

    Dutch and Hosea complete a spur-of-the-moment bank job after fleeing from their cell in Kettering. The pair get separated in town, and Dutch gets another spur-of-the-moment idea when he meets back up with Hosea, who is hiding in an alleyway.

    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.
