    Summary

    Dutch didn't plan on keeping the boy for long. Not after he was paid to kill Arthur's father and Hosea gave him a few dollars to get by. The boy just followed them, grunting and flinching like a kicked dog with nowhere to go. He may as well teach him to take care of himself, to hunt, read, and be a civilized man. At least until they find a safe place to drop him off.

    He spends weeks teaching Arthur to shoot, to hunt, and even to steal. Little by little Arthur starts coming out of his shell, until a rival gang starts causing more and more problems for their small family.

    Summary

    Don't you never leave love aside; it's all we got.

    Sometimes, though, you got to leave other things.

    (Or: Hosea sees it coming. But he doesn't see enough.)

    Summary

    Of course, Arthur could handle it.

    “I’ll get ‘im!”

    He sprinted towards the door, pushing past Hosea as Dutch called after him.

    ”Art- Stay here, we’ll handle it! Goddammit-“

    ”It’ll be fine, come back!”

    But he ignored them, shouldering the door open and bursting into the frigid air as he scrambled into the next coach.

    Of course, he probably would have listened to Dutch and Hosea if he’d known about the patrol just beyond the trees.

    Summary

    Collection of stuff for my Famderlinde AU- in which instead of the gang eventually spiralling downwards, the birth of Sean and Karen's daughter Rose (from my other work "A Rose in the Brush") puts the gang on track- some of them get the baby bug, wanting to start families of their own. Others are just happy being a part of what is becoming more and more of a happy family.

    Ultimately deciding to give up a life of crime, they settle down onto a large plot of land and create what could be considered a small village of their own, raising their families together and enjoying their time not constantly being on the run.

    Summary

    The sack of groceries fell to the ground with a crash, alcohol bottles shattering against provisions, but that was the least of Arthur’s concerns at the moment.

    “C’mon, or Morgan’s gonna get away!”

    He dug his spurs into his horse’s side, pushing her to her limits while mentally apologizing for the abuse. The shouts and taunts of the O'driscolls behind him kept him going, itching to reach for his gun but knowing he's have to focus all his energy on riding away

    Of course, things were about to get a whole hell of alot worse for them both.

    Arthur was jerked back sharply by his neck as a lasso tightened around his throat, yanking him back from his saddle as the spurs drew gashes across his white arabian's flanks, causing her to whinny in alarm and take off.

    Arthur is ambushed by a pack of O'driscolls while on a supply run and falls into a sinkhole. After he fails to return with the supplies, Charles begins to get concerned. It isn't like him to go off on one of his long outings without letting him know first. The gang is mostly annoyed, but isn't worried, knowing Arthur.

    That is, until his white arabian barrels into camp with no rider.

    Summary

    But when Arthur, from his lean-to just next to Dutch’s tent, calls out, “Dutch!” the third time, Dutch is shocked into action, on his feet in a flash, struggling into his britches, shrugging an old flannel chores shirt on over his undershirt, his heart likely beating strong and fast enough, now, to crack through his ribs. Oh, Dutch is awake as hell now, no matter what his body is trying to tell him otherwise, goddamnit.
