It is easier to build strong children than to repair broken men - Frederick Douglass
The next-to-last thing Deputy Shane Walsh ever expected to do was to sympathize with Merle Dixon. That unexpected event was topped only by the miracle of Rick Grimes climbing out of the driver's seat of that truck. The desperation that men will go to for their families - or when they think their family lost - will never cease to amaze him. But for Dixons to be the solution to the problems plaguing him in keeping all these assholes alive in this camp? Well, maybe that really ought to be the most surprising thing.
Warning: If this thing was any more AU, I'd have to eliminate the walkers entirely. :)
What if there was another reason that the Dixon brothers joined up with the group at the quarry and she wasn't what they thought her to be after all? Would they re-think some of the behavior issues they had with a disgruntled Daryl and a prone-to-violence Merle? Meet M.J. and see her take on this new world that she is surviving in.
