The Decent Thing to Do by gutsforgarters

“I just wanted to say that it’s real decent, what you’re doin’. That little girl’s lucky to have somebody like you lookin’ out for her.”

We Gather Together by Rckyfrk

Beth has Thanksgiving dinner all planned out (well, as planned out as she can make it), but when an unfortunate accident keeps her from achieving her goals, Daryl steps up and surprises her in more ways than one.

Can I Handle the Seasons of My Life by gutsforgarters

Glenn and Maggie are getting married, and not everyone who should be there is. It won’t be the same without them, but the people they’ve left behind can still make something good out of what they’ve got.

Keep Your Hands Off The Waitress by wallflow3r

KYHOTW by wallflow3r

It’s going to be a long night for Beth Greene if she can’t keep her mind, and her eyes, off her co-worker, Daryl Dixon. But when boundaries are crossed, she isn’t the only one in the diner who’s getting riled up.

Trick or treatTrick or Treat

I Know A Girl Who’s Soft and Sweet by gutsforgarters

Daryl never had a lot of crushes growing up—and by not a lot he means none at all—but if he had, he thinks he probably would’ve gone for someone like Beth Greene.

you know better, daddy by kattyshack

Daryl’s not big on parties — honestly, fuck ‘em — but as far as incentives go, Beth’s good enough to get him to rethink pretty much every personal opinion he’s ever had.

BTTH trick or treat

Heart, Fear Nothing by briarxrose

Daryl shows Beth that princesses in towers can save themselves.

Now and Later by Rckyfrk

Of all gin joints in all the world, Beth walked into Daryl’s. Well…into his seat, anyway.

Second Chances by Piper1016

Pumpkin in the ZA? Sure why not.

let’s give ’em pumpkin to talk about by kattyshack

He’s never actually done a first date before, but Daryl’s starting to think that this afternoon at the pumpkin patch with Beth is exactly that.
God damn it.

And, I Built A Home by briarxrose

Daryl and Beth sow the seeds of a future for their family together.

The Moon None the Wiser by Piper1016

Daryl had no idea why he was at the town’s only bar tonight of all nights. Just a bunch of the same people getting shitfaced drunk. Only tonight, some of them were in costume because, unfortunately, it was Halloween.

Stray Cat Strut by gutsforgarters

“Y’know, Daryl, you’re kind of like a cat.”

i put a spell on you / because you’re mine by kattyshack

If Beth had known the stray cat she took home to make her familiar was not, in fact, an actual cat… Well, maybe she wouldn’t have taken it — him — home at all.
As it is, though, ignorance really does turn out to be bliss.

Nine Lives by briarxrose

When Emily Dixon-Greene brings back a black kitten for Halloween, will it bring good luck to the Dixon Family?

Howl by dynamicsymmetry

Howl banner

A year after the mysterious slaughter of her entire family, Beth Greene is no closer to finding those responsible, and no one will believe her when she insists they weren’t human. But when she’s saved by – and proceeds to save – a monster of a very different kind, she finds herself drawing close to her goal in ways she never expected.
And he might be the most unexpected thing of all.

He’d tracked her all the way to this creepy hospital with the cops that had a woman with dead eyes as a leader. There was no way Daryl was going to let Beth stand toe to toe with her without him being within arm’s reach.
