    Summary

    Eight years have passed since Blackwater, Saint Denis, and the fall of the van der Linde gang. The survivors are trying to make a life for themselves – some moving on to nobler pursuits, some circling back in like carrion birds on the scores they left behind.

    And outside a town called Purgatory, West Elizabeth, a man wakes up without a scrap of memory or a name, haunted by a black wolf and a golden stag.

    Summary

    John should’ve left already.

    He willed himself to go. Get up, get moving. Would be so easy to gather his feet under him. Hell, there was a horse grazing in eyeshot, one of many they’d shot the Pinkerton off the back of. No Old Boy, but still. He could ride down to Copperhead Landing, no fuss. Gather Abigail, Jack, get the hell out of New Hanover.

    He couldn’t leave Arthur. The thought settled in his stomach like a weight, tethering him to the ground below him.

    -

    John forces Arthur to keep on living. Even acts of love come with consequences.

    Summary

    A wholesome series in which Arthur Morgan and John Marston are living safely together, and very much in love, on their own homestead. Growing their own crops, breeding horses, and making their own way. No explanation as to how or why, they just are.

    Summary

    An unexpected rider visits John's home, and a relationship begins to reform in unexpected ways, well at least unexpected for someone.

    Spoiler Warning - so I haven't finished the entire game. Just expect this to be spoilerish for the whole thing and avoid if you don't want to know things.

    Summary

    Second epilogue added

     

    Arthur Morgan followed his own advice and left the gang when he had a child (the canonical Eliza and Isaac), taking up as a bounty hunter. Along the way he picked up a young John Marston, who thus never runs with Dutch. Despite leaving, Arthur never truly left his connections behind him, and when Dutch asked for help, he always answered. In 1899, during the event of the game, this arrangement might eventually force Arthur to choose to whom he truly owes his loyalty.

    John sneered. "You think I'd protect Dutch Van der Linde? Believe me, if I knew where he was, I'd tell you. Hell, I'd go get him myself. He's worth 10 large right now."

    Milton sneered right back. "I am not a fool, Mister Marston, kindly do not treat me as one. You would do nothing without Arthur Morgan's say-so, and that will be what puts you on the gallows right beside him."
