    Summary

    What if the timing had been a little bit off? And one additional person had gone on the run with the Atlanta run crew?
    Shane went with the others to Atlanta. He is the one to cuff Merle to the roof. Rick arrives in Atlanta just a little later, and comes across the trapped Dixon. An unlikely friendship forms over the lengths of far too many road trips in order to catch up to their respective families, who they keep missing due to circumstances and poor timing. While two different groups of survivors form, and friendships and families are built, two people fall in love with each other, without even having met. (spoiler alert: it's Rick and Daryl. :-) XD )

    Summary

    Since her parent’s death in 1997, Beth Greene lives a quiet, uneventful life in Senoia with her foster family. With her blonde, long hair, big blue eyes, and childlike face, the seventeen-year-old Beth looks like the definition of a ‘lolita’, and foster mother Lori Grimes watches over every step she takes.

    Not too far away from the idyllic suburbs of Senoia lies Barksdale; a scruffy town with a poor reputation, where thirty-three-year-old Daryl Dixon lives in a modest apartment with flayed paint on the walls. When he’s not up in the mountains or out on the road, Daryl spends his time working for his brother’s unorthodox MC Club, ’The Savage Sons’, and his uncle’s carpenter firm while trying to be a somewhat good boyfriend to his girlfriend Scout, who happens to be Zach's neighbor.

    In the middle of a disastrous sleep-over at her boyfriend's place, Beth gets uneasy and flees into the woods. In the morning, a desperate Zach asks for help to find her, and Daryl reluctantly agrees to help.

    Summary

    It was only supposed to be a secret summer fling. Daryl knows he shouldn’t be doing this. But so does Beth, and that doesn’t seem to be stopping her. She ain't so innocent as she looks. Hell, he's pretty sure she never was.

    She’ll be leaving soon anyhow. Then it’ll be over. He won’t be tempted by desire anymore, and he can return to his mundane life and even more mundane daydreams.

    Nah, he’s not catchin' feelings. He’s just thirsty as hell.

    Summary

    Beth Greene's starting a new chapter of her life after her mother's death - college - which means independence, freedom, and a whole lot of opportunities to get drunk and make bad choices, or so her sister Maggie tells her. But all Beth wants to do is focus on her studies - that is until she befriends Daryl Dixon, the bartender at Martinez' who isn't half bad to have around when drunk men approach and who she finds herself thinking about late at night more and more. When Beth exasperatedly complains she's not having any of the fun her sister always talks about, her and Daryl begin a whole new kind of relationship that she never in her wildest dreams would imagine but can't ever think of going without again.

    Summary

    After Merle is arrested and sent to prison, Daryl is forced to find a new life for himself. Taking direction on instinct alone he ends up in Gulf Shores, Alabama where he learns to find happiness, friends, and a home he never thought he could have.

    Being divorced doesn't mean you get the deposit back on your condo. After separating from his wife, Rick Grimes drives down to the gulf alone and falls for the easy, laid back vacation he'd meant to take with his family. So much in fact, he decides to make it a new tradition for himself.

    Unfortunately, Gulf Shores isn't that big of a town and crossing paths with a person who wronged you in the past could look like a simple coincidence. But when it keeps happening, is it less like a coincidence and more like fate?

    Summary

    “Daryl, this is simply humanity, at its core. We teach each other one of the many words for things that have been inside of us, all along, if we were only to listen closely enough—allow ourselves to feel.”

    Daryl responds by tightening his grip on the fig tree, pulling the pot closer to him. He knows his eyes betray his mind, now, settled in some ways that needed settling, but unsettled in other, new ways. As if in response to this, Dr. S looks to him.

    “One is made by belief,” the other man quotes, his dark eyes depthless. “As one believes, so one is.”

     

    Daryl-centric Rickyl fic covering the summer between Seasons 3 and 4. Peace, light angst, Daryl interacting with canon characters, and acknowledged feelings Daryl/Rick slow burn.

    Summary

    Beth and Daryl really shouldn't have hooked up. She has a boyfriend, he has a girlfriend. And if anyone found out about their little fling, there'd be more than one repercussion to face. They shouldn't be texting like they are, or swapping dirty photos, or saving naughty videos of one another.

    He shouldn't be thinking about her as much as he is. But he simply can't help himself.

    He's already risking it all. Might as well make it worth his while.

    Summary

    Beth Greene's car is on it's last life, so when Daryl Dixon offers his help after finding her broken down on the side of the road, she can hardly believe her luck. Even harder to believe is him agreeing to pretend to be her boyfriend to convince her family and friends that she truly has moved on from her mother's death. But it's hard to know what's pretend and what's not when real feelings get involved, and tensions rise when they both realise they're no longer keeping up their façade as a friendly favour.
