    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?

    Summary

    ''Where are we going to go now?'' The child mewled, kicking his boot into the ground below. Grinding the toe of his scuffed boots that were much too big for him. ''What are we going to do?''
    ''I. Son, we aren't staying here. You aren't staying here. We're going to stay with- with my family.'' His father replied, looking down at the ground and shuffling similarly on his feet, not looking at his son not looking at the freshly moved earth.
    ''I don't want to leave. Please daddy, stay here with me. Don't leave mama.'' The child protests.
    ''This hurts me too, I know boy, I know. But. There's nothing else I can do.'' He replies, fixing the boy's possessions to the saddlebags of Boadicea. ''I promise nothing will happen this time.''

    ***
    Welcome to a world where Isaac survives ... and Arthur doesn't quite know what to do on his own.

    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

    Hosea was fucked.

    That was just fact.

    And Hosea had always prided himself on being able to face facts.

     

    In which Hosea is dying (again), and Dutch is running (still), and the night really doesn't pan out the way either of them expected.

    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.

    Summary

    “What’s going on?” Dutch asked. “Something the matter?”
    Arthur shook his head. “No,” he whispered.  “I just…it's….”
    “It's what?” Hosea asked, and Arthur flushed red.
    “Dark,” he mumbled.

    Teenage Arthur is afraid of the dark. Luckily, Hosea is a Good Dad and is there for him.

    Summary

    Everyone has, at some point, woken up in a bed that wasn't their own.

    Panicked, for a moment. Slept so deep that, even for just a heartbeat, you forget that you'd been the one to lay down there. Had, for some reason, gone to sleep somewhere else. Maybe for a sleepover, or for a vacation, or even just because you'd given your bed to someone else for the night.

    But that moment of panic is just that: a moment. Clarity comes back to you, and you nestle back into your bedding, perhaps for five more minutes of sleep, or maybe just to enjoy a slow wake up.

    But what if you didn't get that relief? Woke up to find that, actually, you were somewhere else? Somewhere you'd never been before? Somewhere you had, most certainly, not gone to sleep?

    What would you have done then?

    Summary

    Much like what I do with Holden, I will be posting what I have written whilst playing as Dutch so far, seeing as I was lucky enough to get the role. I put a decent bit of time and effort in studying the character and things he would say, but I still make mistakes so please forgive me!

    Included will be things people playing as other characters say as they interact with Dutch, much like you would in game. This also means that some interactions are small, though some are a little larger.

    We are currently in the month of April and have one month until the Blackwater ferry job, so it's a fair bit of idling until things really start taking off.

    Any text written by another person (unless discussed beforehand) is unplanned and I have no influence over their choices.

    Texts are written spontaneously, meaning at times the grammar or pacing is sloppy and are greatly influenced by other people's texts, making it difficult at times to plan out what will be written.

    For any questions, simply post below in the comments!

    Thanks for reading. ♥

    Summary

    One of the first things John remembers after Dutch took him in is… well. Arthur. Just Arthur.

    Arthur was two heads taller than him then and had just turned 22 a few days prior. He had this comfortable and effortless nature about him, like he could handle whatever good or bad the world threw at him with ease, and a handsomer face than most outlaws, though John hadn’t met many at that point. Everyone in the gang liked him, that much was immediately clear, and John never stood a chance when Arthur sauntered up to him, extended a hand, and welcomed him with a lopsided grin.

    He couldn’t help but like Arthur from that moment onward.

    John Marston has been in love with Arthur Morgan for a long time. The problem is, he's never told him so.

    Summary

    John turns 18 and tells Arthur exactly what he wants for his birthday.

    “Who said we had to drink to celebrate?” John said, taking a few steps towards their shared cot, making the older man shift awkwardly away.

    “We don’t have to drink, I guess, but what do you want-“

    “I want you.” John cut him off, biting at his lip and smirking.

    Summary

    jarthurmorgan asked: this is probably gonna be a very dumb suggestion but could u write a story about john leaving the gang for a year and arthur is like really sad cuz he misses him and then john comes back and instead of arthur being happy, he’s mad cuz of how much he missed john i really hope that’s easy to understand i feel like it’s all over the place and if u don’t wanna write it that’s okay !

    Marston had been gone for a year. Had left his boy without a father, had left Abigail to raise Jack alone. Had abandoned them, had up and left their family. And then he just shows up and expects to be welcomed back with open arms? Thinks that bringing everyone gifts will make them forget his transgressions?

    Yeah, right.

    Arthur had taught him most everything else he knew. It seemed only fitting that Arthur would teach him this too.
