    Summary

    This is living, the Outsider thinks, while splashing water on his face to wake up. This is living – while digging a sliver of glass out of the sole of his foot. He shouldn’t have taken his boots off the night before. The little wound aches all morning on his walk to procure more fruit, so he uses most of the coin Billie left him that day to buy a pot of salve that claims to be ‘Thoroughly Proven To Eradicate All Manners Of Infection And Promote Speedy Healing!’ in bold print on the packaging. This, too, is living. And this, as the day drags on. And this.

    A long, slow, sometimes painful, sometimes sexy exploration of the Outsider coming to terms with his humanity, following DotO. Corvo does show up eventually, I promise!

    Summary

    Sadie and John’s insistence on checking on him is confusing, to say the least. After all, they should be as affected by the whole thing as he is—Sadie was Arthur’s closest friend, and John—well, as far as anyone in the gang was concerned, he and Arthur were family. He isn’t sure what either of them said to Arthur’s grave. He could guess if he wanted to. But right now, Charles wants nothing more than a clear mind.

    A clear mind for a fresh start. Isn’t this what this trip is all about?

     

    Haunted by memories, Charles tries to travel east. But he can never quite make it there. (Sequel to A Kind of Paradise, but can be read as a standalone.)

    Summary

    Tuberculosis doesn't kill Arthur. Neither does Micah Bell. After the events of RDR2, a seriously injured and sick Arthur follows the advice of his physician to "get somewhere dry, and warm" and travels west to the state of Argent, where he finds work on a sheep farm and undergoes a risky operation to combat his illness. Meanwhile, Charles hears about what happened to the gang after his departure. Restless, unable to gain closure, and in desperate need of money, Charles begins taking local prizefighting matches, eventually moving west to the mining town of Comstock in northern Argent. Eventually, their paths will cross.

    Tl;dr: Arthur's sick. Charles is sad. There's a lot of boxing, a lot of pining, a blowjob, fake history, and love.
