"Well well well… if it ain’t Daryleena checkin’ out the kitchen queen…" With his typical big smirk, Merle amusedly observed his little brother who was curiously enough sporting a rare crimson blush on his cheeks and neck. As the older Dixon had still not bothered to make new friends at prison, it was difficult recalling her name. "Manage to get your dick wet? Girlie’s a fine piece, I’ll give you that." He whistled as he saw her bend over to pick something up.
“It ain’t like that.” Daryl shrugged his shoulders in an attempt to act indifferently towards the woman. His brother, who had known him for the majority of his life however, was not convinced by his weak acting performance. “If it ain’t like that, baby brother, I’m sure you don’t mine if Ol’ Merle is gonna step up and…”
Quicker than a snake and before Merle could finish his sentence, Daryl was on him in a tight chokehold. The brother’s embrace might have looked friendly from afar yet in truth was anything but. “Don’t even think about it! I’m done with your leftovers. This one’s mine, ya hear?” Daryl spat, “I liked her first.”
When I read something so incredible drabbles like these, it makes my insides flutter. My heart skip a bit and then I can feel it palpitate until it goes to steady satisfied rhythm. I just want these feelings so bad that only these characters can provide.
I give up. Yep you had me from hello. Damn….
There’s a reason for the word stop so you can cease to being cute and captivating at the same time. Just fucking stop please! I’ve used the word please. S’il vous plait…
Chances are I may have pushed the wrong button. Jackass.
Tell me about the time you rule my world. The times when I discovered coup d’état does exist in mine. Blimey….
Gosh you’re fucking cute. I hate you.
I have not given up on CARYL. I have given up on the promotion of TWD regarding CARYL. I feel they devalue the authenticity of Carol and Daryl’s relationship by using the word ambiguous. I honestly think that they failed on the aspect of ground breaking relationships by remotely suggesting and putting the idea of B~thyl unto the heads of whoever believe they are canon. I cannot blame the shippers, whether TPTB admit that B and D was unintentional I feel the damage have been done. Had it been B And D from the start I won’t have qualms about it whatsoever. I will never ship them but I will respect the idea. Probably I won’t be this much involved in TWD if it’s been B and D from the start. The point of the matter is CARYL have been established from the very beginning. All thanks to the great chemistry of MMB and NR. Had it been some other actors, it won’t be as powerful and authentic as it is IMHO. I have great respect for you 5percentspirulina and I’m in total awe. I love MMB with all my heart not because I fancy her and not because I could totally identify with her, but because she is so refreshing. She defines unique beauty and all it’s glory. I always feel that Melissa McBride is an icon. I will always root for her and her future projects. Season 5 seems hopeful but I am well guarded now. Season 4 have taught me the hard way. Right now I am crossing my fingers and toes. I am grateful for this post!
"Sadly, Daryl’s romantic situation remains somewhat ambiguous."
I am a diehard believer that the story that we are being told about Daryl and Carol is a classic slow-burn romantic arc. I know this because I know NARRATIVES. I’ve read a thousand books, I’ve watched a thousand films. I spent my whole life watching TV. TWD is not a surreal, experimental show a la Twin Peaks. TWD is a conventionally structured narrative show and it adheres to the socially acceptable sexual morality of the times we live in and the mood of our times is most definitely not Ye Olde James Bond model of the hero with the parade of disposable love interests NOR is it the antiquated fairy tale of rugged hero and the virgin ingenue.
The very fact that B*thyl has successfully threatened the audience’s expectations that Caryl will eventually become canon is just SAD.
How the fuck am I supposed to work when all I can see in my head is Melissa dropping moves carrying a rifle and gettin’ down to Norman’s beatboxing?
