    Summary

    An ignoble death reclaimed from hell's gate; life's security stolen and determined not to lose again. Arthur Morgan did all he could to make amends in the time he had and it weren't enough; Sadie Adler's had too much stolen from her and refuses to lose anything more. Two strong wills in close quarters at odds and free for the now, but there's no guarantee it'll last.

    Divergent storytelling from the conclusion of Chapter VI: Beaver Hollow.

    -

    “When are you going to stop lying to me?” There carried a sharpness in her question, a challenge.

    Took him a few breaths to work up the reserve to sit back; her hand dropped from his back as he looked her way. “The hell am I supposed to say?” he challenged in return. “Gee, ain’t dead, but it feels like I should be? Air’s like shards of glass caught in my lungs?” He started coughing again as he let the words slip out. He shook his head, holding her off until he could finish with a shaking breath and an unsteady voice: “I got tuberculosis, Sadie, and it ain’t going away.”

    The heavy pause air between them came laden with apprehension, the final calm before the storm that’d been building broke with ill regard.

    Summary

    A strange woman with Sindarin steel on her hip turns up near Clemens Point without the veriest clue when and where she is, and Arthur Morgan is the first to happen upon her and grant her shelter with the gang. Once she's granted an audience with Dutch Van der Linde, who wants to see how useful she might be, it becomes clear that her strange abilities outstrip even the sharpest shooters amongst his boys. And there's another problem: John Marston is feeling a certain type of way about her, and he isn't the only one.

    Summary

    John has always had a crush on Arthur. It was just something he lived with, like knowing Santa Claus isn't real or that Uncle actually used to be young once. He never expected to do anything about his feelings, though as fate would have it, one incident changed everything.

    Just when John figures he has a shot at being with Arthur, it is announced that Arthur and his on and off girlfriend, Mary, became engaged. Heartbroken, John finds himself doing his best to avoid Arthur all while trying to numb the pain. Javier decides to help as best as he can and takes John out for a night of drinking.

    The only problem is, John did NOT expect to return home as the opposite gender.

    Summary

    "Hard water was annoying to shower in. It caused his straight hair to develop an unreasonable amount of grip.

    He slid his hands through his hair and grimaced at the strands that came with them."

    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.**

    Summary

    “Rules are simple,” John says as he lowers himself to the ground with a small grunt of pain, stretching out his injured leg, “Spin it, whoever the mouth is pointin’ to gets to ask you a question, answer…”

    John trails off, letting the suspense hang as he looks at the members who relented and joined.

    Arthur, after a bribe, Javier, Charles, Dutch, Mary-Beth, Karen, Lenny, Sean, Hosea, and Trelawny.

    Tilly, Sadie, and Abigail all flat-out refused, all huddled on a blanket on the far side of camp with Jack.

    Javier had been the one to ask the three of them, and John had never seen Tilly look so flustered.

    “Or, you have to kiss them,” John says and he hears the slur in his own voice, pointing his finger at the bottle, “Who’s goin’ first?”

    Summary

    Eliza Cornwall gets kidnapped by the Van der Linde gang to blackmail her father, Leviticus Cornwall, for a large sum of money to finally leave North America and settle down in Tahiti. Unbeknown to them, he doesn't care much about her, leaving her fate yet unknown.

    This is my first work so the writing may be a bit clumsy. The story I've got in mind is long, much longer than anticipated at first, and I'm not sure how regularly I'll be able to update this. I'm aiming for once a week, unless life happens.
    Graphic violence, nudity and assaults will be described, so please proceed with caution if any of these issues trigger you. Warnings will be at the beginning of the chapters. There will also be some smut, but that's relatively far in the future, what would a slow burner be, if we got to the juicy bits right away, aye?
    The timeline of this tale is muddled up with the events in the game, the biggest dissimilarities are: Arthur will not obtain TB. We start off in Horseshoe Overlook, although the Blackwater fiasco was a couple years back. Sadie has been running with the gang for a while, making a name for herself in the world.

    “I’m trying to warm up some first,” he countered, gestured to the stove.

    Abigail arched a brow and slipped away from him, walked slowly to the cot and by the way her hips were swaying with each step, he had a hard time looking away from her. “There’re better ways to warm up than huddled over a stove, John Marston,” came the suggestive tease she tossed back at him with a smile, tongue darting quick across her lips.

    That kicked up a welcome heat, coiled low in his gut, and he grinned, trailed a few steps after her. “That so?” he murmured with a chuckle. “Why don’t you show me?”

    Summary

    “It’s been too long since we’ve talked. I’ve been busy, makin’ ends meet,” John pauses again and Abigail hears him swallow roughly, “Sometimes it feels less like livin’, alone, and more like survivin’.”

    “Can we invite her down?” Abigail murmurs and her hands fret near John’s shoulder.

    “… Do you want me to read this?” John asks, a bit hoarse.

    “Yeah?” Abigail frowns and looks up at John’s furrowed brows as dark eyes scan the letter, “Is it bad? Is she alright?”

    “She’s fine,” John says slowly.
