    Summary

    Twisting my head around, I groaned. There he was - as if summoned by my own sense of dread, standing at the foot of the front steps. He smirked at me, oh, how he smirked. I felt my face go red and I tried to splutter out some sort of explanation.

    "I was just-"

    "Fallin' into a bush for no damn reason?" Daryl chuckled, finishing my sentence for me. He stepped forward and grabbed my forearm. In one fluid movement, he unceremoniously wrenched me from the hedge; I yelped and stumbled forward, displaced momentum sending me crashing into Daryl's chest.

    I felt disoriented and slightly whip-lashed from this abrupt, rougher-than-necessary rescue.

    Daryl pushed me off of him (another small part of my negligible pride withered and died) and held on to both my shoulders firmly, peering at my face. "Ya can't seem to go ten minutes without gettin' yourself in some sort of jam, huh?"

    Felix Culpa; An apparent mistake or disaster that ends up having surprisingly beneficial consequences. Or, the story of one fairly willful small-town waitress who, somehow, flukes her way through pretty much everything, including the apocalypse.

    Summary

    We all know what happened in "Alone" after Daryl and Beth are cut off during an intimate conversation at the kitchen table, but what would have happened if Daryl didn't open the door?

    This story is on-going and follows the plot of the show very closely, however, events have been tweaked based on how I think the storyline would have progressed with Beth being alive.

    May 5th, 1906
    Yuma, Arizona

    Daryl never minded the heat, he was well equipped from the past twenty-nine years he’d been brought up in Texas, but the up coming Arizona summer was dry, unforgiving. His skin was barley thick enough.

    Summary

    If Colony One is to survive past the fifty-year mark, it needs help. Set adrift on the far end of the galaxy, the Council is in shambles and the Saviors are taking over. The colony's only hope for survival is a long-shot mission on a stolen research vessel.

    They need a steady supply route. They need reinforcements. They need to re-establish contact with allies on Earth- they need to find out if they even have any allies on Earth- and they need to know that it's not already too late.

    Could be, they're just trading one war for a much larger one. Could be that they won't even survive long enough to find out.

    But it could be, too, that somewhere along the way, this whole damn thing might actually prove to be worth it.

    ---
    Or the one where Rick is an artist that made a name for himself, Carl is the cutest kid, Daryl owns a bakery, and Michonne is some hardcore best friend.

    Summary

    And just like that Jesus is between his knees, clear octarine eyes piercing straight through him. Daryl’s pretty sure he no longer has the capacity to breathe.

    Chronological chapter order: 2, 1, 3, 4

    No spoilers beyond s06e11 I think; all you gotta know is Jesus and Hilltop exist.
