This break is annoying :-), so to occupy my time with something TWD related I gave writing a try. Haven't written anything in a long time and this is my first TWD "story". Rather short something and English is not my mother tongue, so due to a lack of betas there may be a gazillion mistakes in it. Have mercy on me, please.

It's from Rick's POV. His thoughts while he walks through the herd of walkers in Alexandria.
Also, excuse me, I'm a slasher, so love-sweet-love is hinted. :-)

Most of our DNA is whats called junk DNA.
Junk DNA has essentally no effect on our genome - it is not used.
A small portion is the nonsense material that marks actual genes beginnings and ends as well as the sections at the ends of our chromosomes called tellemers.
Part of it consists of genes that evolution has shut down. Its Material that was used by ancestrial species but is usually no longer used.
Much of it is viral DNA. A virus reproduces by insering its genetic code into the host cells and making the cells reproduce the virus. Even after the hosts immune system stops the virus the genetic material remains in that cell and is passed to further generations of dauter cells. If the cell thats infected is a gamet it can pass the code to new generations. The immune sytem suppresses these bits of inherited virusis unless something happens to compromise that supression.

Now going back to H.erectus
The first of our ancesters to migrate out of Africa. The branches that ended up in Europe and Asia evolved into H.Neadertalis and H.denovian.
But, it is the population that stayed in Africa that is of greatist importance because they evolved into H.cromangnius our primary ancester (we have genes from all three but 15% or less come from the first two) but not befor the H.erectus in Africa went threw a sever bottle neck event (we are decended from a few dozen survivors).
This is atributed to climit change. Now suppose it wasnt that but rather the zombie virus.
Now, no infection is 100% leathal. So the survivers consisted of those immune and resistant to it.
The virus sitting dorment in the resistant portion and being passed down until it was a perminant part of our genome.

Its sat dorment in the entire speacies until a combination of factors - polution, climate change, stress, poor nutrition - caused the virus to wake up. So we all have it.
It became compleatly active in the most compromised making them sick. They would have been the first walkers.
Survivors are people whos systems are strong enough to supress the partialy active virus but death will still trigger it.
This might have been posted already since it seems to have come out awhile ago.  The link was to something more recent but it was basically excerpts from this interview.

11th-Dec-2015 02:59 pm - Daryl's good for nothing ...
(To be on the safe side: If you haven't watched all seasons yet there will be spoilers in this post, so don't continue reading, if that bothers you!)

This was pretty much the core message of a comment I read the other day somewhere on Pinterest or Tumblr, either one. I was just surfing, hopping from site to site, when my eyes fell on that tiny little comment someone couldn't help sharing with the world. I can't remember the exact words and was unable to find it again, but it sort of ran: "I wouldn't mind, if Daryl was killed. All he's good for is fighting, no more."

I chose to ignore this poor soul, who is obviously unable to see what most of the others see, that's why I cannot remember just where exactly I read her/his pathetic little comment, but it stayed on my mind and made me wonder. How can someone seriously think that way? Are we even watching the same show? Are there others, who'd agree?! You don't necessarily have to love Daryl (then again ... LoL), but seeing him as expendable extra more or less, although he is one of the most complex characters of the show is somewhat unfair and simply wrong, I dare say.

Well, yes, he does do a lot of fighting, fact. But, er, correct me if I'm wrong, isn't this what the show is all about and what they ALL do? Save for Eugene and Gabriel perhaps, but they are a different story. :-) Out of necessity and in order to survive he/they fight - or die ... or just stand there screaming for help, but like I said - different story. LoL
So you can't really blame someone for choosing to fight and if he's even good at it - hooray. From my point of view it's a reason for cheering to have someone in the group who knows how do defend himself and the others, not a reason to rather see him banished from the show. And he looks so cool with that crossbow ... but I'm wandering off the topic, sorry.:-)

By the way, if Daryl allegedly does nothing more than fighting, what exactly do all the others do that would make them so much more special? Save for Rick, who's got two extra jobs as father and leader of the group, all the others do pretty much the same as Daryl - fight to survive. If they were all like Eugene, that show would have been over pretty soon. LoL

Let's see - all Daryl's good for is fighting. Is it? If I recall things (and stuff :-)) correctly, he is the only tracker and hunter of that group, isn't he? That came in handy a couple of times during the past 5 1/2 seasons. And then, honest to God, the man is honest, loyal and reliable and although being rough on the outside, he's got a heart of gold. If you haven't noticed that after "Cherokee Rose", you must be either blind or insensitive.

So with these characteristics he does so much more than just fight - he is mental and emotional support, which is essential in dire times like these. He was there for Carol during the search for Sophia and especially after she was found dead. He was there for Beth, when they escaped from the prison together after she had watched her dad being killed, not knowing if she would ever see her sister again. After Lori's death, when Rick fell apart and the entire group just stood there rooted to the spot, unable to act, it was him who took care of Judith and Carl, while I was screaming at the screen "Would someone feed that baby, for crying out loud, and help that poor traumatized boy, who just had to kill his own mother!?"
No matter what the situation is, he keeps his cool and finds a way, does what needs to be done.
And most importantly, he is the back up for Rick. Rick never actually asked to be leader of the group - that job sort of came to him. From one day to the next he was faced with the responsibility of having to make life or death decisions not only for himself and his little family, but for an entire group of survivers, who rely on him. A burden that is not easily carried alone - and he doesn't have to, thanks to Daryl.
Daryl, who helps him make decisions by giving that little nod or head-shaking, who offers advice, but otherwise stands back and leaves the leadership to Rick. Daryl, who takes the helm when Rick is unable to, only to hand it back unconditionally as soon as Rick has "sorted things (and stuff) out". Daryl, who keeps an eye on "Carl's old man" - a fact that not only reassured the boy at the time, but also several times saved the life of the man, who may be most important to that group. And perhaps having a friend by his side, someone to talk to and share the load with, knowing he is always just there, may be an immense mental support to Rick. So, Daryl's his ancor to sanity, don't you think?

All in all, I'd like to differ with the simple statement, that Daryl is good for nothing, save for fighting. I would mind, if he got killed. And so would Rick and Carol and the rest of the group. How about you?

Thanks for reading.

Tariel
