    Summary

    It didn’t do to be bitter. Only Hal was allowed to be bitter. Had John been a less obliging friend, and Hal not a prince, John might have made the observation that most of Hal’s tribulations were of his own devising.

    He did devise, that boy.

    Summary

    After the events of "This Sorrowful Life," Rick wakes up in the hospital with the name of the man he can't live without forgotten on his lips and a doctor telling him that the last two years have been a dream. He then begins the long, arduous process of readjusting to life in the real world, but he can't get the image of the beautiful archer out of his head and soon signs start to appear that the dream may actually be real. Could Rick actually find his hunter? Could they actually have a shot at a happy ending? And will Rick finally be able to tell Daryl that he is the love of his life?

    Summary

    This work is COMPLETE!

    Written in response to a prompt on The Walking Dead kink meme:

    Rick & Co. are finding it increasingly difficult to deal with Daryl's outbursts, his racist remarks, and easily-ignitable temper. They are in fact, considering just cutting their losses and telling him he has to leave when they come across another group of survivors...one of whom is very, very special to Daryl.

     

    AU in which Glenn and Daryl have been in a relationship for a few years before the ZA, and were separated when Atlanta was overrun. Each think the other is dead, and Glenn ended up with a different group of survivors while Daryl ended up in the quarry camp. Story also assumes Merle would've turned his back on Daryl for getting involved with Glenn, so they parted ways long ago.

    Edit: Just 'cause I'm getting a LOT of snark reviews on ff.net about this story accusing me of stealing this: I AM DRPEPPERDIVA on ff.net. She is me, I am her, and we are they. No one has stolen this story, but thank you for the concern.

    Summary

    Abram sighed. “What we want to know is. How are things. With the boy.”

    The boy. John frowned slightly. He had left The Boy, as Abram liked to refer to him, occupying the living room of the new house, surrounded by textbooks, pointedly ignoring John. “Fine.”

    “What do you mean ‘fine’?” Abram asked, grimacing. “Do I want to know?”

    Abram,” Viggo growled.

    “He’s still alive?” John wasn’t sure what he was meant to say.

    Abram paled. “What? What did… John. When the D’Antonio family proposed this… arrangement to us in exchange for permission to act against one of the Camorra affiliated operations in New York, we guaranteed Santino D’Antonio’s continued good health in your hands. He’s what, nineteen? Eighteen? Only a boy.”

    “He’s not hurt,” John said, even more puzzled now. “Studying for something, I think. We don’t talk.”

    Summary

    A woman from our world wakes up in the body of one Cersei Lannister, and subsequently tries her best to keep the realm and royal family from self-destructing.

    (An attempt on a realistic portrayal if someone actually woke up in the insane situation of suddenly becoming Cersei. Not complete. Definitely slow-burn. A loose study on GRRM's style. And mostly to get some constructive criticism and get an idea of where I want to take this.)
