    Summary

    Dutch held his arms out wide as he finally revealed the final product to the gang, his family. This bright smile on his face, proud of creation that finally came true, hell even Hosea could not help but feel a little proud but not because his best friend was finally able to complete such a dream, but because he was surprised that the gang were able to work together to achieve such a great thing. So it was understandable when Hosea said allowed, to the group “somehow you did it.”

    “Yes we did, old girl, yes we did.”

    Summary

    Eliza Cornwall gets kidnapped by the Van der Linde gang to blackmail her father, Leviticus Cornwall, for a large sum of money to finally leave North America and settle down in Tahiti. Unbeknown to them he doesn't care much about her, leaving her fate yet unknown.

    The story I've got in mind is long, much longer than anticipated at first, and I'm not sure how regularly I'll be able to update this. I'm aiming for once a week, unless life happens.
    Graphic violence, nudity and assaults will be described, so please proceed with caution if any of these issues trigger you. Warnings will be at the beginning of the chapters. There will also be some smut, but that's relatively far in the future, what would a slow burner be, if we got to the juicy bits right away, aye?
    The timeline of this tale is muddled up with the events in the game, the biggest dissimilarities are: Arthur will not obtain TB. We start off in Horseshoe Overlook, although the Blackwater fiasco was a couple years back. Sadie has been running with the gang for a while, making a name for herself in the world.

    Summary

    He didn't need to go far. She was right by the fire with her back towards him. Nora didn't notice the door opening, her focus solely on the flickering flames in front of her.

    “How are you feeling?” At the sound she jumped. She turned around quickly with wide eyes, surprised and yet happy to finally see him again after so long.

    “I'm just happy to see you again, Fike.” She chuckled.

    “I'm happy to see you again, too.” He sank down to the floor with her, sitting just a few feet away. “God I was w-worried about you.”

    Summary

    The heat smacks like a punch. Adjusting his neckerchief over his nose, Arthur takes in the length of the road, disappearing into a red haze some hundred yards ahead. A peculiar, suggestive heaviness seems to linger, trapping the swooning stores, the hotel with its wrought balconies and flower baskets, the picket-fenced houses, in a sweet, oozing calm, as if they’ve been preserved in amber, sepia-toned and motionless.
    It’s quiet.

     

    Spanning the three story missions 'A Short Walk in a Pretty Town', 'Blood Feuds, Ancient and Modern', and 'The Battle of Shady Belle', events in Scarlett Meadows come to a fatal head, and Arthur struggles to confront his own anger.

    Summary

    Dutch smiles his cruel, his wicked smile. This goddamn smile takes Arthur’s breath away even faster than Dutch’s hand gripping his throat.
    He isn’t a religious man after all – has never been, no wonder, regarding his way of life– but Dutch…towering over him, face half-lit by the bedside lamp and one hand wrapped around his lover's throat, caressing his jawline, while his large golden rings dig into the soft skin.
    His eyes glistering viciously…
    Dutch makes him believe in the Devil again.
    And damn it, he would happily go to hell.

    Summary

    “He is hurt,” the daughter cuts in, almost a double of her mother now that John takes a moment to look at her proper. There’s something challenging in her eye as she continues. “My father took him to the doctor, in St Denis.”

    “Ich wünschte, ich hätte mehr tun können…” Andreas adds regretfully, and both Charles and John look to the daughter for further explanation.

    The girl bites her lip, eyes downcast as she says: “It was very infected.”
