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.

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 We aren’t changing anything that’s already been archived nor are we making any huge changes to the website or the tumblr.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!
–Brenda, Shannon, Courtney, Kirsty, and Tea (the new UBFL admin team)
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
