Story Notes:

So.  I'm doing this.  I'm really doing this, lol. 

Hi.  I'm Shae.  And I'm hopelessly addicted to TWD (coughCarylcough). 

So much so that I find myself writing stories about the characters in my head during my long commute to and from work, haha. 

This little story is about as AU as it gets, but no worries, because there are familiar faces everywhere, sometimes used in mysterious ways.  I apologize in advance for how my wacky brain works sometimes.  Well, let's go with full disclosure.  Most times.  Er, al the time. Laughing

So, I should probably stop rambling before this turns into a thesis (oh my goodness, this is slightly terrifying, lol), and just jump straight into the deep end. 

The first time is always the worst, right? 

Oh.  Before I go...obligatory disclaimer. 

Disclaimer:  I don't own any of the recognized characters from the Walking Dead. I'm just borrowing them for the purposes of this story. Any names you might not recognize, however, are my own creation. No infringement is intended, and I'm definitely not making any money off of the fruits of my nagging imagination. Which is entirely too bad because it doesn't sound like a bad way to make a living. Wink

I'm overwhelmed at how sweet and welcoming everybody has been.  Thank you so much. It means a lot. 

Here's the next chapter. It's a short one, but you get a little more Daryl and Merle interaction with the kids. 

Hope you enjoy.

So...I'm still getting the hang of this posting thing here.  I've tried and failed to add other characters besides Andrea.  Embarrassed  Better luck next time, maybe?  The Dixons reach the Greene farm.  Not exactly action packed (and too short to boot), but we're just getting started.

Hope the appearance from the littlest Greene didn't scare everybody off.  I'm going to go ahead and warn you, though, that won't be her last appearance.  Dodging Tomatoes

On to to better things... 

While Daryl and the rest of the Dixons are traveling to the Greene farm, Carol arrives and meets up with a few familiar faces in maybe some not so familiar roles.

Oh, look.  It’s only been a year, lol, but look what I decided to dust off and post? 


Now this chapter isn’t the best, it never was, but I decided to go ahead and post it anyway because it’s been about 80% finished for 9 months out of that year and I realized I’m never going to love it, so.


Eh.  It's going to be buried and forgotten underneath the challenge fics anyway, lol.   


Nevertheless, here you go.  Hope you enjoy it.
