New Writing Prompt: Matchmaker Merle

Merle Dixon considers himself a jack of all trades. He also considers himself somewhat of a ladies’ man. His brother, on the other hand… Well, let’s just say Daryl needs a little help when it comes to finding “The One.” And who better than his big brother?

What could possibly go wrong?

This spring, we want you to give us your best take on Merle playing matchmaker for Beth and Daryl! This is no contest, and there will be no winners. It’s just a nice, wholesome prompt that we hope can inspire some fun ideas. Feel free to interpret however you see fit. We look forward to seeing what y’all come up with!

All submissions will be spotlighted on May 1st, 2021. Feel free to post whatever you’d like, whether it be fic or fan art or anything else.
Use the tag “Matchmaker Merle” if you post on AO3, and if you post to Tumblr, please tag us (@ultimatebethylficlist)!

We look forward to seeing what this wonderfully creative fandom can come up with! 🙂
