    Summary

    Arthur Morgan did not intend to survive when he gave his hat to John Marston and stayed behind to gain his redemption. As he crawled towards his final resting place, he never intended to wake up again.

    But he does wake up. Thanks to time travelers Francis Sinclair and Charles Smith, Arthur's life has been saved by a Saint Denis hospital in the year 2021. The two men were under orders from a mysterious figure known only as The Traveler to save Arthur, as a reward for turning his life around. While Arthur's tuberculosis is on the mend, he finds he has unfortunately developed a nasty case of PTSD from his brush with death. To cope, he goes to live on a Big Valley cattle ranch owned by Jackson and Victoria Linton, two of Mary Linton's descendants. The siblings quickly become Arthur's new family, though Arthur is especially taken with Victoria. At the same time, Arthur is haunted by memories of his past life, from 1883 to 1899.

    Navigating the strangeness of waking up in a different century soon takes a spot on the back burner when a ghost from the past begins to threaten the ranch. Arthur must prove whether he really is a redeemed man as he faces a choice between his old life and the new home he has made in 2021.

    Summary

    Enemies to lovers, slow burn, Dutch x OC.

    My mind is currently plagued by a gang of outlaws that call themselves the Van der Linde gang. They mainly concern themselves with robberies and apparently operate on some sort of 'Robin Hood' philosophy. Yep, that's the one. Robbing from the rich and giving to the poor. Sounds like a saviour complex if ever I've heard one.  

    Their ideals stem from their leader, Dutch van der Linde. Supposedly, he's a silver-tongued devil that prays on lost souls and enrols them into his gang. He convinces them that they've got a purpose and that with his guidance, they can make the world a better place. If he's Satan seducing them into sin, then I'll happily be God and smite him down.

    Summary

    After serving half of his ten year prison sentence, Arthur Morgan is released on parole due to his good behavior. He thinks this will be a good opportunity to start his life over again. Unfortunately, Dutch has other plans for the man.

    Modern AU, not sure how many chapters it will be. Just sort of loosely writing it as I go.

    Summary

    This is the story of how Josiah Trelawny joined the Dutch Vanderlinde Gang and his long relationship with Arthur Morgan. It will jump around occasionally to different events as we see them in the Game. I based this off of how I and many others feel there is a lot of secret queer communication in the game, especially from characters like Josiah Trelawny. A lot of things from his dialogue is left in mystery. Stuff which Arthur always seems to understand. So what if some of Arthur and Josiah’s interactions in the game play were coded talk referring to more private moments. A long building love story unfolds.
    This story will eventually run through Ch. 6 of the game itself. I didn’t change the ending, just took advantage of certain information, mysteries, and a lot of research on genetics and TB.
    In the 1st chapter, we see Josiah’s past and how it relates to the mysterious family of his in Saint Denis. And of course, we see Arthur and Josiah’s 1st meeting. No smut, yet, but its a slow burn.

    Summary

    He ain't got no money on him. No, that's long been spent, wasted foolishly on drink a few weeks back when he was drowning out his sorrows. Since then he's been scrounging. Picking pockets where he can and robbing folk on the trail when there's been nobody around. But this close to town he ain't like chancing it; hard telling what kind of law was about. Last thing he needed was to end up behind bars.

    So he'll keep his head down, see if there's honest work about. It's a small town, just as many rural towns are. Big enough for the folk who live there, but not big enough to draw all manner of folk in. Arthur knows he getting looks; he sticks out like a sore thumb on the account he ain't shaved nor washed for a time and his clothes are quite a sight. If he can find something, he might have enough to get himself decent. If not, he figures the river works just as well.

    --------------------------------------

    Arthur's on the run. But why?

    Summary

    Arthur realizes after things fall apart in the Heartlands, and things were starting to smell wrong in the South the gang needed to course correct or they were all dead. Dutch seemed more focused on getting money, which they did need, but also vengeance for his long-dead father, and overall something felt off...like he was seeing another side of the man he once called a father figure. But things came to a head and Arthur lost his cool and finally challenged Dutch to explain everything, from the backing out of the land before Blackwater, Blackwater itself, and all the crap they've found themselves in. A schism was made and a large group followed Arthur, and they made the dangerous journey West. But the law still wants them and now Dutch wants what was taken from him.

    But Arthur will do what he needs no matter the cost to give everyone the life they deserve.

    Summary

    It had only been a few weeks since the gang came down from the frigid mountains of Colter and came to settle in Horseshoe Outlook. John and Arthur hadn’t spoken since the scarred man had been rescued from the wolves. It was tense between the alpha and omega and everyone in camp could feel it. John was the only male omega within the gang, but he could talk or fight something fierce when given the opportunity. Especially when it came to the certain alpha that had saved him one more occasion than the freezing mountain and the mutts watching him.
