    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!

    Summary

    Jenner knows he's doing the right thing by locking the doors and dooming the whole group to incineration, even if it seems like a monstrous decision. The world has gone to shit, and it's really the kindest course of action, to put these people out of their misery. But as the clock ticks down to decontamination, he remembers what he overheard the night before, promises passing between two men who only need a little more time to make them come true. And maybe those few precious moments he can give them are worth opening the doors for.

    Written for a mini-challenge to write a one-shot Rickyl fic through the POV of a different character. Plus, includes a bonus "what Jenner whispered to Rick" reveal!

    Summary

    Daryl is a vision on all fours, Rick thinks. Upright, and filthy, with a crooked sneer, he’s dangerous. Untouchable. Opinionated with just a thin narrowing of the eyes.

    But here, lying prostrate, back muscles long and streamlined like a prowling jungle cat, Rick finds his bones aching from desire. There's no fear. No hesitation. None of the usual priority of matters that holds him back from this.

    Summary

    An inadvertent heroic deed throws Daryl into the orbit of Rick Grimes. The connection is immediate, as visceral as it is baffling. Daryl is at loose ends with his brother in prison, and Rick is struggling to keep his family afloat. A friendship, however dubious, grows between them, but Daryl has his preoccupations and Rick wants more than Daryl might be willing, or able, to give.
