    Summary

    Joel was a man who you immediately despised the moment you met him. His smug attitude, his boring, one sided conversations. But for whatever reason, you kept finding yourself being stuck in situations with him, even asking him to make you a guitar. If you hated this man so deeply, then why did you enjoy being around him so much? And how would you react to a revenge driven woman trying to come into your town to kill him?

    Summary

    Many things have changed in the past twenty-five years for Joel, one being the fact that infected now roam the earth. What he didn't think was going to change was his inevitability of him dying someday, some would even say that he seeks out his own death. Nonetheless Joel doesn't understand why or how he is still alive, doesn't know why he has been dreaming of six other strange assortment of people, some traveling together and the other two off on their own. He doesn't know how he is alive after taking that beating from Abby, he doesn't understand what has happened to him but he does know that he will get his revenge.

    -

    An AU where Joel doesn't die (or he does but comes back because the old guard) and ends up finding a new family while searching for his revenge along side Ellie.
    TLOU fans you don't have to really know what the old guard is to understand this, I try to explain most stuff either within the fic or in my authors notes. I do recommend watching the movie though because it's amazing and so well done.

    Summary

    Joel Miller, by some miracle, is given a second chance at life. Can he and Ellie finally repair their relationship? Will Ellie be able to repair her broken relationships? Can the rest of her Jackson crew restore their broken situations?

    Teaser:

    Joel Miller didn't know why Abby Anderson killed him. Truth be told, it could have been anyone in the United States. There was no telling who she was or who she was working for. However, Joel didn't care. He wasn't mad at Abby for her actions. The way he saw it, anyone who was so motivated to track him down across the country and had the ability to kill him had earned the kill. That was just what the world had become. Kill or be killed. Joel had killed many people in his life, he knew his time would come.

    He once told his daughter, Ellie, that if the Lord gave him a second chance to stop a surgery that would have killed her, he'd do it all over again. And while he wouldn't he saving her from a hospital, and he didn't quite know what he'd done to deserve this second chance, the Lord gave it nonetheless.
