Welcome to the Bethyl Holidays Festival!
We’re kicking it off with the spooky season – Halloween is just around the corner!
We came up with some fun prompts to help inspire ideas for our favorite OTP! Submission deadlines are as follows. We will also be featuring all the submitted works for the specified prompt on these days:
- Trick or Treat (10/28)
- Pumpkin (10/29)
- Black Cats (10/30)
We are looking for all kinds of spooktacular fanworks: fic of any length (drabbles, ficlets, one-shots, multi-chap), drawings, collages, fanvids, poems… you make it, we want it! We will be regularly checking the tags for #BethylHolidaysFest2019 and #BHF2019.
Please use #BHF2019 on AO3 and Tumblr. Thank you!
Since it’s so close to Halloween already, we also want to encourage you to submit previous works fitting the theme as well. We will share them and feature them and hopefully turn others onto some lesser-known works! We will continue to accept and share works after 10/30, but only for a few days before we head into the next holiday prompts.
This is not a contest – we won’t pick a best of this time around. Instead, we want to feature old and new authors and fanworks to spark imagination and continued enthusiasm for our ship! Most of all, we want everyone to have fun and get inspired!
Submissions can be made via Tumblr or our email: email@example.com. Please send us the link to your work if you want to be featured.
Please spread the word & be sure to stay wicked, fellow Bethylers!

And he might be the most unexpected thing of all.

After the moonshine shack, a situation arises that Daryl hasn’t had to deal with since before the dead started walking.
He just needs five minutes alone to take care of it.
But Beth, well, she’s always got to try and lend a hand doesn’t she?
Daryl decides to use his guard shift as some alone time and finds himself less than alone.
Daryl gets caught in a sticky situation.
Beth knows what they say about failure. Try, try again. She’ll get out of Grady sooner or later.
When her dreams of being a rockstar fall flat, Beth comes back to her sleepy hometown. Daryl’s dog Pup failed to make the grade at guide dog school and instead of leaving him to an uncertain future Daryl becomes a reluctant dog owner. They meet in the most unexpected way and maybe Beth’s on to something when she says it’s a sign. Although Daryl has a completely different take on what that sign means to him.
