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! 🙂

Under New Management

Thanks to the incredible generosity and helpfulness of Stacy and Jenn, UBFL has been handed over to a group of 5 Bethyl fans and will continue to be updated. We aren’t changing anything that’s already been archived nor are we making any huge changes to the website or the tumblr. But we hope to improve the presence of Bethyl and all the amazing fanworks that are published and posted every day, as well as encourage new fans to join us and create their own works!

We can’t say enough how grateful we are for all the time, care, and attention that Stacey and Jenn put into running this site for the last 5 years. We all agreed: hey, we love this site and everything it’s done for us over the years, why not jump in and help keep it going?

So we hope you’ll stay with us and participate in some of the fun new things we’ve got planned. We want to expand the catalogue here on the site as well as promote new events and contests for everyone to join in and have fun. Not to mention, all the new (and old) fics that we think deserve recognition and maybe a little spotlight time. Feel free to shoot us a message anytime. Head over to the About section to read about some of the things we’ve got planned.

We hope to see more of you all very soon!

09.16.2019 Announcement

It is with heavy hearts that we announce that we will no longer be updating this website.

Jenn and I have had a wonderful time these past (almost) 5 years archiving and cataloging all the great Bethyl Fanfiction that this fandom has to offer. But, as time has gone by, we have changed as people and while we both love and continue to support Bethyl, we don’t have the time to dedicate to this site any longer.

The domain is registered until May 1, 2020, after which, it will transition back to ultimatebethylficlist.wordpress.com. The site will stay up and you can visit the over 1000+ stories we currently have on here.

You are free to take any banners made by Jenn and I for your own personal use. Please just credit us when posting to external sites.

Thank you for the love and support you’ve given us the past years and we will still be lurking in the corners of AO3 and FF.net. Maybe one of us will finally finish our long overdue fic….

Stacey and Jenn

Happy Birthday UltimateBethylFicList

4th birthday

My site is officially 4 years old today!

What started as a simple place to share Bethyl Fanfiction has turned into a community that I am proud to be a part of. The amount of talent that everyone here has is astonishing and I know it just keeps getting better as time goes on.

Thank you to everyone who supports this site and visits.

Thank You to the creators and writers for sharing your gifts with the world.

Thank you to Jenn (@leftmywingshome) for helping me and being such a great friend to me when I needed you the most!

Keep the Bethyl Pride Alive!

Stacey
