    Summary

    Hosea Matthews has been in the conning business for years. It’s how he survives and sustains he and his wife, Bessie, following after Dutch Van Der Linde and his hopeful preaching about his America and the true meaning of freedom. They’re robbers, thieves, killers and murderers.

    So why has Dutch brought a boy back to their hideout in the San Francisco hotel?

    Hosea Matthews must take a closer look at himself and the man he calls his best friend in order to understand why this young boy has been dropped into his life, and what exactly he is supposed to do for him. Does he allow this teenager to become a killer like them? Does he let the boy grow into a man followed by ghosts of his past that visit only in the dark, or does he step up and make a change?

    Summary

    Cautiously, he walked over to the fire. The dark-haired man noticed he was up and about not long before Arthur reached them. "Ah, hello, son. How ya feeling?" He asked.

    "Better," Arthur replied simply, deciding to not tell the man he still felt a bit like shit. All things considered, he was still doing better now than he had been even before the coyote had gotten him. Save for the fact that he still hadn't eaten, but it wasn't one of his biggest concerns right now.

    The younger man stood to his feet and seemed to size Arthur up for a few moments before he stuck out his hand for him to shake. "My name is Dutch van der Linde, and this here," He pointed to the other man with his free hand while Arthur shook his extended one, "is my associate, Mr. Hosea Matthews. What's your name, son?"

    "Arthur Morgan," Arthur replied, feeling a bit silly to use his full name. He hadn't needed to for a while now.

    "Well, then, Arthur Morgan, come take a seat by the fire."

    Summary

    There’s a man and a dog following Arthur.

    Never close enough to see proper, but close enough to give him a bad feeling.

    He’s the only one that can see them. Until he isn’t.

    Summary

    Whumptober 2019, #14: "Tear-Stained"

    Something was up with Arthur.

    Dutch knew the boy like the back of his hand. He’d raised him, after all. Molded him, turned him from a frightened, angry street-rat into a bold, brave, young man.

    So he knew that something was wrong.

    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

    The Summer is slowly drawing to a close, and the first nightly chill of Fall has almost unnoticeably come creeping in. Hosea and Dutch cannot help but find themselves a little nostalgic this time of year, wistful at the last few days of another long, hot Summer spent together. On a sleepless night, while the rest of the Van der Linde gang rests easy, they manage to find some quiet time together around the dying campfire, where under the starry night sky they fondly recall the past, and the way it all began.

    A fic artistically inspired by First Aid Kit (Stay Gold and America), Gregory Alan Isakov (San Luis, Amsterdam, The Stable Song), Fleet Foxes (False Knight On The Road) and Mark Knopfler (Sailing To Philadelphia).

    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.

    Summary

    1890. Even when times were good they weren't, whether on the run or sacrificing for the greater good. Before the Van der Linde Gang, there was a family running from a world that was changing before their eyes. Growing from a family to a community comes with more challenges than ever before in the world of civilization.

    Prequel to Red Dead Redemption 2
    Focuses on the gang before Blackwater.

    Summary

    Josephine Davis was saved from a deranged father by none other than the Van der Linde gang in 1878, and this fic follows her life as she grows up alongside Arthur, and, as these things usually go, falls for him.

    Purely self-indulgent.
