TWD Three Questions
How many walkers have you killed? 
How many people have you killed? 
Why? 

TWD CARYL Three Questions
When did you start shipping CARYL?  
What scene made you start shipping CARYL? 
Why?

TWD CARYL QUESTIONI started shipping CARYL when I first saw an oooohhhshiny manip CARYL kissing. I thought it was for real. I’m hooked since then. That was more than a year ago. The first scene that made me think of CARYL as a couple would be the bus scene on season 3. I don’t want to get hooked although but I found those two as a couple so adorable. Then I saw the CARYL kissing gif, basically I owe it to Ooohshiny. I found the CARYL fandom and the rest is history.Thank you for this SANJA!!!!

I was soooo happy to see your loveliness back in our tag! It put a huge smile in my face!

I will never stop telling you SANJA, I am a broken record teeeheheehe YOU ARE THE CAROL OF MY FANDOM LIFE. Xoxo!

And while we’re at it can we appreciate how sexy and badass this woman is? Carol, I’m sorry but you just make me redefine sexuality. I’m sorry well not really teeeheheheehehe!

I love how Carol tries to keep walking past Mika.  She tries to stick to what she said earlier.  She’s trying to be firm with Mika and teach her not to be so emotional about finding dead bodies of strangers.  Carol thinks that this is a sentimental luxury that you can’t afford to keep in this harsh new world.  She probably thinks “If I had toughened Sophia up, if I had tried to prepare her for this world, maybe she’d still be alive.”

But no matter how hard Carol tries to be firm, she caves.  Under the hard exterior, she definitely has a soft spot for Mika and her very sweet and kind disposition.  Probably because Mika reminds her so much of Sophia…

THIS!
FULL proof that Carol is adapting and her mindset is in full gear but her emotions and motherly instinct are still intact. That’s why prominent people, articles are celebrating this character solely for her unique qualities and perseverance to survive whatever the cost for the sole purpose of saving the people that matters, her family, the children. But as Melissa said you can only do as much! Carol tried to do her best for the greater good. That’s why Melissa McBride have touched so many people portraying this incredible human being! That’s why people recognised her finally! She brought Carol into our lives made it her own and inspired all of us to the best of her God given abilities. That’s her gift.

Seriously.  People love Melissa’s performance because Carol is such a complex character.  She’s real.  She’s not some 2-dimensional character who is tough all the time or who is soft all of the time.  Real people aren’t just one thing or another.  Real people experience the full range of emotions.  Carol tries to be tough to survive, but she has her soft spots, just like we all do.  We can all relate to that.

The first time I watched the deleted scenes (we won’t discuss how many times I’ve watched them now, tyvm), the instant Carol told Mika that she’d bury the body herself, without help from Carol or Tyreese, I cringed. And not because I believed her. SHE WAS ALWAYS GOING TO HELP. She was always going to fucking help. Those of us who love her never had a second of doubt.

I cringed because I knew what the haters would make of that statement, how they would try to use it as fodder for their insane shit-to-the-bull arguments about how she’s dark and cold and unfeeling and murdery and entirely without any remaining redeeming human qualities.

And of course, when she couldn’t walk past Mika (just as I knew she wouldn’t be able to), my entire heart smiled. She’s a mother, you see? And sometimes, no matter how much your mind tells you that you need to be tough, that you need to not back down, that you need to stick to your principles and not be swayed by emotions because *that* is quality parenting, sometimes there is just absolutely no defense against the beautiful, loving, shit-eating grin of your child waiting for you to do the right thing.

Mika knew what I knew. She knew that Carol couldn’t resist her. And she exploited that knowledge *exactly* as a child her age would. There is nothing but perfection in those scenes, and I so deeply wish they hadn’t been cut, given that they show even more of Carol’s warmth and compassion, not that those of us with a clue are in any need of more evidence.

I felt the same way. I know how much the Anti Carol will use that moment to their advantage to put her character down. Lo and behold, there it is on Melissa’s tag. The same person trying to point out that specific line without even trying to justify the reasons and subtlety implying the shallowness of how she understood that specific line. I know how that person rolls. Her tactics are so predictable by now I’m immune! But what I truly focused on is what the people who truly understand Carol in and out. The people the real people who can truly relate to this tremendous force of a character. A force to be reckoned with. That’s what I felt about the people who truly will stand their ground. That no matter what they threw at Carol, her natural instinct as a Survivor, A Warrior, a Mother, a Protector will always prevail!

You’re Not Paying Attention, Part Deux

So a few days ago, I posted this thing here listing some of the parallels, and juxtapositions between Daryl and Carol’s storylines in 4B.  Put down on paper, it’s kind of amazing how closely these two were circling around and near one another, even though they shared virtually no screentime together in the back half of that season.

That lack of screentime is one of the arguments used by some people to ring the death knell of the Caryl ship.  Yeah, I don’t get it either, but whattaya gonna do?  People, right?

Last night, the deleted scenes from The Grove came out and OH MY LORD, it just gave us more fuel to add to the Caryl fire.  And when you put all of these together  down on paper, it’s actually a) hilarious and b) knock-you-over obvious that the writers, IMO, not only intended to show us Caryl (however you define it) without them sharing screentime, but did a remarkably brilliant job of it, laid out an amazing set-up for their reunion in S5, and built a really interesting platform for how to progress the story of these two adorable snuggle-monkeys moving forward.

First…here be spoilers…

So dokufu made a really great post earlier that got me thinking thoughts at a time when I really just need to put my nose to the grindstone and banging (heh) out a couple of proposals LIKE RIGHT NOW.

But I have so many feelings about the point made in their post, and how Daryl and Carol’s storylines were paralleled and contrasted ON PURPOSE in S4 to keep us thinking about them going into Season 5.  Like, it’s PAINFUL these feelings.  Stabbing painful.

And I also got to thinking about certain opinions that shouldn’t  really matter but get under my skin enough to A) make me want to tell certain people to fuck the fuck off and B) write what I’m thinking down.
