    Summary

    "He began to both dread and yearn for his dreams—uneasy over what he might see, but still filled with inescapable longing just to be near the two of them."

    After having lost Eliza & Isaac and avenging their deaths, Arthur struggles to cope and keeps his grief intensely private, refraining from even journaling about them. His intense emotions grapple with him until they leak into his dreams, the only outlet he's left for them. Memories first, then regrets, then wishes and lovely imaginings for what could've been.

    *This is the third work in a series. While you can absolutely read it as is, it might make a little more sense if you read "Only Fools Hold onto Hope" and Part 2 of "Disaster Road" first. This works picks up after "Disaster Road" chronologically.*

    **While this work is not graphic, there will be one chapter that is very emotionally intense.**

    ***New chapter added regularly! And comments always welcome!***

    Summary

    “We're born with some dreams. We acquire others as we get older and we live out something else. When I was...a kid back east they said there were dragons in the west. Dragons! Well, I guess we found them. Found them or made them or...became them. Oh, these futile lives of petty sin we have lived! What choice did we have, really?”
    Hosea’s journals from 1869 until the day of his death.

    Summary

    August 21st, 1887; Gruene, Texas
    "What's good here?"
    I turned to tell the man our menu and specials, and was frozen by his shockingly-blue eyes. I ran my eyes over him quickly, taking in his tall, broad build and roguishly-handsome face with the speckling of light facial hair.
    Oh Lord.
    I felt a blush creeping over my caramel skin as I took his order, and when I came back with the plate of fried catfish, a Southern specialty, I found myself pulling a chair out to sit with him.

    After pulling a bank job in the major livestock town of Fort Worth, Texas, the Van der Linde gang heads south for a reprise in the gulf. While the rest of the gang heads to South Padre, Arthur Morgan decides to stay in a small town south of Austin, an insular community called Gruene to find leads for him and Hosea and scope out a new camp for Dutch.
    Upon arriving, Arthur finds himself in the local saloon, and a young waitress catches his eye.

    ***I'm not sure how long this work will be, but I plan to create a storyline up until Eliza and Isaac's death. Haven't wrote a fic in a while, bear with me! :)**

    Summary

    Honestly, Arthur enjoys the kind of hand to mouth existence this life affords him. His wants and concerns a single track road, no doubts or anxieties clouding his way, it's simple. He's an easy man to please, so long as he has enough pocket change for smokes, to indulge in the odd bottle of whiskey and enough left for food in his belly. He doesn't want for anything else, doesn't know what he'd do if say tomorrow, someone were to drop a crisp hypothetical million bucks in his lap, honestly would just rather not have the headache.

    He works at a local dive, has done for the past five years or so. It's relaxed, but the routine keeps him in line. The joint proprietors, Dutch and Hosea, he's known for years though, has them to thank for cleaning him up, giving him a honest job, daren't think where he'd have ended up without them, probably prison if he's being optimistic, that or dead in a ditch somewhere.

    Summary

    Arthur reminisces on his early days riding with Dutch and Hosea; specifically moments spent in Dutch's company.

    Two decades worth of flashbacks filled with shame, longing, repressed desire, and love. Super angst, TRASH fluff, emotional pain, relationship exploration, mush, dreams of domesticity, and a true happy ending.

    Yeehaw!

    Summary

    “Are we losing him, Dutch?”

    Dutch exhaled, averting his eyes elsewhere when he saw the pain and fear in John’s eyes. “Now don’t say such ludicrous things like that. It will pass. Time heals all wounds, son. You see…Grief…It’s something everyone will go through inevitably. He’ll come around soon."

     

    (Where Arthur takes Eliza and Isaac's death much harder than he did originally and John tries to help him.)

    Summary

    It's been two years since the Pinkertons caught up with the Van der Linde gang. Alone and purposeless, Arthur must reconcile with finding a new life after recovering from his illness.

    Charlotte Balfour has learned to survive on her own. But after defending her home from drunk Murfree Brood intruders, Charlotte finds herself in need of help again from an old friend and finds herself thinking less and less of Cal.
    ______________

    Slow burn romance. Arthur settles down but finds that his life as a retired outlaw is not as tame as he thought while he deals with old enemies, new roles and the struggle to be a good man. As the years pass, Arthur will run into old friends (giving us those scenes we all wanted to see in the game) and old enemies.

    An on-going work. New chapter every few weeks.

    Also, this is more of a long-haul story. Romance is pretty PG-13 and the mature rating is for themes of infertility, violence and rape, etc.

    Summary

    Arthur Morgan is fourteen years old when his father's shot dead in front of him in their small cabin in northern Maryland. With no one to turn to, he ventures into the wilderness by himself with only a few belongings, the clothes on his back, and very limited knowledge of how to survive. And then, when all seems lost, he's taken in by a pair of charitable bandits with silver tongues, sharp wits, and big dreams of taking down civilized society to bring America back to a purer state.

    Along the way, they find more wayward souls, building up a strong group that's the closest thing to family most of them will ever have. Has Arthur found his place, or will his second family crumble just like his first did?

    A fairly canon-compliant interpretation of The Van der Linde gang, mostly from Arthur's POV, 1878-1899.

    WARNING. As is the nature of most long fics like this, there's a bunch of ugly stuff going forward. Mostly violence, a few mentions of some darker stuff, but probably never anything too overly graphic. TL,DR; shit gets real.

    Updates are a bit slow, due to life sucking. Never more than a month and a half without an update. No plans of cancelation.

    Summary

    "She hadn’t realized—and she didn’t think he had either—that he could be so gentle and pensive. She couldn’t take her eyes off him. He was so enthralled and mystified by their son—by this beautiful, innocent life they’d created together—so clearly enraptured by love for him, that his jaw hung open and his voice was completely swept away. Besides Isaac, she’d never experienced a moment when she felt more intimate with, more connected to another human being.

    She knew right then: for better or worse, she was desperately in love with this man."

    Summary

    A patchwork of moments in the aftermath of the deaths of Eliza and Isaac.

    -- "How’d you do it, you and Dutch?” he asks softly, still staring at the crosses. Hosea feels a bitter smile stretch across his face. “We didn’t. Not really. I spent the better part of that year at the bottom of a bottle, and Dutch, he...well, you remember. Reckon you’re handling it better than either one of us ever did.” Hosea says wryly. His smile drops. “It dulls, after a while. You learn how to live again, I s’pose.” --

    Summary

    First 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."
