Three weeks after burning down the moonshine shack, Beth and Daryl find shelter in an abandoned RV. It’s Christmas. The whole world is full of hope and love now, thinks Daryl. Chicken feathers, rose hips, Boone’s Farm Strawberry Hill. Candle light shining on the furniture in winter. She makes him feel brave.
‘Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the Prison, Not a creature was stirring, not even the Dead; The backpacks were full of emergency supplies, In case of a herd overrunning their home; The Family was huddled all together for warmth; Except for a couple out in the watchtower, Keeping a watch for Walkers and human dangers; The Hunter couldn’t keep his glaze off the woman, And the Babysitter kept scooting closer; Daryl slowly slid a hand over hers and Beth, She took the opportunity to kiss him. The moonlight shown down on the dazed couple, Daryl pulled back, his face showed befuddlement; And all Beth could say was “Merry Christmas, Daryl!”
The last thing Beth wants to do is go to a Halloween Party, especially not in this way too sexy costume Rosita loaned her. She’s sure things can’t get worse, then she runs into Daryl Dixon at the Quickie Mart.
Another of my contributions for Ultimate Bethyl Fic List’s “Bethyl Holidays Fest 2022.” Prompt – Beth meets Daryl at a Halloween costume party that he begrudgingly agreed to come to with a little to no effort on the costume So I may have veered off course a little, but I hope you still like it.
For 2022, we’ve decided to open up the creative freedom and leave it entirely up to the creators. No prompts, just a celebration of Bethyl throughout each holiday.
New Year’s (Eve and Day)
This means any and all fics, fanart, and manips that involve any of these holidays will be included in our spotlight posts. Just like last year, tag your creations either on Tumblr or on AO3 with #BethylHolidaysFest22 or #BHF22.
First up will be Halloween! Submissions will be spotlighted with a round-up post on either the day of the holiday or the day after. There will also be a post for any late submissions that come in afterward.
Daryl and Beth find themselves stuck in the prison’s watchtower on Christmas Eve with a snowstorm raging outside and a generator that’s run out of fuel. They’ve got nothing but a deck of cards, a box of condoms, some candles, a few blankets and a couple of sleeping bags at their disposal. Also known as “How Daryl and Beth Finally Confront Their Feelings For One Another After She Beats the Pants Off Him at Go Fish”.
Christmas is the least magical time of year as far as Daryl is concerned. All the overpriced, tacky, commercialism is bad enough, add in the fact that the worst heartbreak of his life happened days before Christmas and Daryl would be more than happy to skip December altogether. Or at least he would except he only sees Beth in December.
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?
Merle Dixon cannot understand why the hell Beth and Daryl aren’t taking advantage of their newfound safety in the Alexandria Safe Zone to hash some things out. So he’s taking matters into his own hands. First up, the faking dating trope.
