    Summary

    There’s a lot wrong with the notion that Daryl might have a thing for the local babysitter — least of all that it’s a goddamn cliché — but as Beth Greene got older, Daryl had got a whole lot less wiser, and he’d never been all that fuckin’ clever to begin with, had he?

    Summary

    He’s shown up, rung the doorbell. He thinks he’s been subtle, she thinks about how easy it was for him to find her.

    Classic movie plot, the person who’s supposed to be dead runs back to the last place they think someone will look, the same place all their stuff still is.

    He’s not going to save her from her slow decay and she’s not going to believe the lie he might tell her about him being able to.

    Summary

    Richard Grimes, the Earl of Kent, is having trouble finding a spouse. After being wounded at the Battle of Waterloo, no man or woman of society will marry a man with so many physical and emotional scars. Daryl Dixon lives with his father and brother on the Earl’s property, trying to keep them all fed and his brother from succumbing to the demons that haunt him from fighting in France. After Rick is rejected again, and Daryl’s father misses the rent one too many times, Rick asks for Daryl’s hand in marriage in exchange for his father’s debt.
