    Summary

    Rick Grimes is a homicide detective whose life has fallen apart. Shattered by his best friend's death and the implosion of his marriage, he leaves Atlanta and moves back to his childhood home of King County, Georgia, to pin on a deputy's badge and pick up the pieces of his life.

    Daryl Dixon is a hunter whose brother and hunting partner got arrested for a murder he didn't commit. Tired of his thankless job, he's content to just coast through his new civilian life, until people in town start dying in mysterious, and familiar, ways.

    The only way they're getting out of this alive is by working together.

    (a supernatural fusion, of sorts.)

    Summary

    Daryl, poetry lover and academic nerd, has been crushing on Rick, older, straight frat boy extraordinaire since freshman year. When they end up in the same poetry class and are assigned each other as a partner for a project, Daryl is caught between thinking it's a dream come true to spend more time with Rick, and finding himself pining more than he ever has for the boy he can't have. During their time together, Daryl discovers that Rick is far more than just a brainless frat boy, and Rick discovers that he might not be as straight as he thought. But this is college, where love doesn't often survive the semester; will Rick and Daryl be the exception? Or will their differences ultimately tear them apart?

    Summary

    Thoughts on Rick's (d)evolution and Daryl's undying loyalty to him, partly set in season 6 episode 12 (and certainly inspired by it... a bit spoilery). I believe this is called a vignette...

    Summary

    "Queerbaiting" refers to when a work of media, like a TV show, book, or movie, suggests that it will include LGBT content, characters and relationships, with the purpose of attracting members and/or allies of the LGBT community, and then refuses to follow through when pressed. Or, refuses to refer to it in any definitive terms, instead leaving it "up to interpretation". The process is harmful because it implies that LGBT content is not important enough to be included in works of media, except for, at best, in subtext, or at worst, as a joke or stunt to boost ratings.

    I, too, was drawn in by Robert Kirkman's "Daryl could be gay--oops! Never mind! We actually decided against that a long time ago, sorry for not telling you until now!" stunt, and so this series is my response: to write Daryl into as many raunchy homoerotic situations as I can. Join me in giving the world the queer!Daryl Dixon that could have been, and that it deserves!
