    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

    John tensed up when the big man threw a leg over his and straddled him. Pointedly, he looked over at Dutch and Hosea, slumbering in their bedroll. The waving light from the fire caught in his irises, making them look almost yellow.

    Arthur reached down, grasped his jaw and turned him back to look at him.

    Summary

    But something happens. He isn’t sure quite what, disbelieving, but the entire carriage jolts like it just got shocked and then, somehow, in a way that shouldn’t be possible-

    -The carriage is high in the sky, spinning in the air.

    “Is that… oh my god, Arthur!” He finds his voice, though it grows hoarse with terror and shock.

    Hosea would’ve thought he was hallucinating, mind gone mad with age, if Dutch wasn’t there right by his side, looking just as dumbfounded.

    or: glitches tend to be a little bit scarier in reality.

    Summary

    It wasn’t exactly unusual for Arthur and John to argue and pick at each other. But this time, John seemed to have chosen the wrong argument. He might have known better, but he was angry. Angry at Mary Gillis. Angry with Arthur for...well, he wasn’t so sure what.

    Perhaps this time, they both went a little too far...

    Summary

    Dutch, Hosea thought mournfully, was too much of an optimist.

    Arthur and John didn't get along on the best of days. Someone was going to be dead within the first hour of being stuck together in a wagon.

    Summary

    It is in that moment, the breath after her fingers leave his cheek, that Arthur comes to realize he's been a fool and will continue to be a fool for her till the day his Dæmon looses itself to oblivion, his body succumbs to mortality, and his conscience gives out under the burden of his sins. And maybe even after that, maybe even in death -- stardust whispering after a shooting star, still following her because that's just how the universe made him.

    Arthur has always been loyal to what matters, and its her. Every time. He can't count how many times life has tried to teach him that lesson.

    Just once more, he thinks as he walks away from her again, just once more.

    Summary

    Out of all the ideas Dutch and Hosea have schemed up, thrusting Arthur into the role of older brother had to be the most ill-advised yet. Taking care of others, especially a boy with fire in his eyes and mischief in his heart, was far beyond his skill set. Destruction seeped from Arthur's fingers, laying waste to every good thing that ever came his way. It was only a matter of time before he would lead the boy to ruin.

    This story follows John growing up from Arthur's perspective. Arthur struggles with the responsibility of being an older brother, particularly being looked up to, as his own actions cut away at his soul and his self-worth continues to erode. He teaches John different things along the way--with varying degrees of success--and strives to protect him from harm. This is easier said than done, as is Arthur's desire to prevent the kid from becoming like him.

    It's been one year since Arthur's found Eliza and Isaac's graves, and by either dumb-luck or fate, John has found the culprit. It's news that will no doubt take them both down a dark path of revenge, but John's gone too far to turn back now.

    Whumptober 2019, Prompt #4: "Human Shield"

    John, despite common belief, was no fool. He wasn’t the smartest boy. But he could tell when someone didn’t like him. It was a valuable skill on the streets, after all, and so even he could tell that Arthur Morgan didn’t like him.
