Title: First Taste of Love, Bittersweet (6/6)
Author: eyeus
Fandom: The Walking Dead (TV)
Pairing: Rick/ Daryl
Rating: PG-13
Words: 8400 (26500 total)
Warnings: None
Summary: “You have to promise to come back,” Rick says. He is not crying, he is not. Though no one could blame him if he was, because he knows ‘moving away’ means his bestest friend will be gone forever. “Pinky-promise!”

“Pinky promises are for babies,” Daryl sniffs. “We gotta seal the deal with somethin’ else.”

A/N: Written for the RWG February 2016 Challenge, with the theme of “Firsts”. Title from Deana Carter’s Strawberry Wine. I imagine Rick to be about five years old at the start of this fic, and Daryl around seven or eight. The lovely legolastariel has also directed me to a graphic of how they might look at such an age, which can be seen here.

Chapter 1: (From Hello)
Chapter 2: (Love Starts To Grow)
Chapter 3: (Lasting Memories)
Chapter 4: (Promises Made)
Chapter 5: (If You Believe)
Chapter 6: (Coming Home)

17th-Apr-2016 07:47 pm - Which issue for a newbie?
My husband is (grudgingly) interested in The Walking Dead.  I'm not sure the first issue would interest him that much, or maybe it would.  His favorite character is Abraham, followed by Norman Reedus (when I say Daryl it doesn't register).

Can anyone suggest a comic that would make sense to him in terms of his only really watching this past season?  Or should I just go with the first one?  I'm hoping I can get him to watch the pilot.  He's not consistent, that's for sure!

Season 2, Episode 1 "Monster" - SPOILERS WITHIN!



EPISODE DISCUSSION POST Feel free to post your thoughts during and post-show airing here. Also, please, do not post spoilers for eps beyond this one. Anything about a future episode isn't to be in the discussion post for tonight's episode.

Please, DO NOT discuss any parent series' comic book spoilers within this post! Folks who haven't read the GN prefer to have no hint of what may happen later in the main show. Thank you!

Tonight's Talking Dead guests are: Dave Erickson (executive producer/showrunner) and Cliff Curtis (Travis)! So discuss what they have to say here as well!

Sidenote: As I've mentioned before, I wasn't that impressed with the first season but I'm giving S2 a chance. Hopefully, they've fixed last season's problems and it'll be a more enjoyable series!

I don't even want to start writing this kinda-sorta-meta commentary, let alone watch this episode. I have stalled with housework, laundry, a nap, hair-washing, dishes, and arranging a fancy Friday night that will split the difference between my husband's birthday and my own. I'm out of ways to stall, and it's time to make with the writing.

As usual, you can expect spoilers, speculation, and possible bad language beneath each and every cut. Let's do this.

SEASON FINALE TIME!!!




Season 6, Episode 16 "Last Day on Earth" - SPOILERS WITHIN!

SHOW VS. COMIC EPISODE DISCUSSION POST

Post any and all comments/theories with comic book related spoilers about episode 6x16 or season six in general here. Also, it's encouraged and acceptable to discuss future comic plots and characters as possible season seven story points. Anyone reading this post will obviously either know or not mind being spoiled for those things in a theory about what may happen this season or in the next!

Enjoy the show!

3rd-Apr-2016 10:02 am - a playlist for you
Since it's finale time, I thought it would be a good time to share what I recently started working on. I wish I had thought of this sooner! It's a playlist of songs that remind me of the show, or a character, a scene, a relationship etc. Yes, there's even songs on there for the shippers ;) Still a work in progress, but I'm really pleased with each of the selections and how they flow together. It has a fairly eclectic range of genres that reflects the dynamics of the show from those quiet moments to the chaos. You may recognize some songs that are straight from the series and its promotions. I hope you guys enjoy it.

What about you guys? Is there a song that reminds you of the show every time you hear it?

EPISODE DISCUSSION POST Feel free to post your thoughts, reviews or links to your reviews during and post-show airing here.

Please, DO NOT discuss comic book spoilers within this post! Folks who haven't read the GN prefer to have no hint of what may happen later in the show. If you wish to discuss the comics and their relation to the current or future seasons, a second discussion post is available. Thank you!

Tonight's Talking Dead guests are Scott M. Gimple (executive producer), Robert Kirkman (exec producer/The Walking Dead comic writer) and Norman Reedus (Daryl)!! So discuss what they have to say here as well!

SIDENOTE: For better or worse, I will be putting up discussion posts for Fear The Walking Dead beginning next week with the season two premiere. I wasn't that impressed with season one and will give season two a chance. There will also be a Talking Dead after show, hosted by Chris Hardwick, following each new episode. So at the very least, we'll have that!
