I love Carol.  I love Daryl.  I love Carol and Daryl.  I love Caryl. 


Is there anything else to say? 


Big Grin


Finally on Tumblr.  I mostly reblog and gush about all kinds of fandom stuff with pretty pictures and cute animals thrown in every once in a wile, but sometimes you might find a little surprise or two.  Follow me there and see for yourself. 


Oh, and feel free to keep following me.  Right now I only have 4 brave souls taking the leap of faith. 


Things to remember about Shae:  she loves Carol, she loves Daryl, she loves Carol and Daryl, she loves Caryl, she loves cute animals, she loves pretty pictures, and she absolutely loves writing.  


Later.

Summary:

The obligatory collection of Caryl drabbles.  Wink

 

Multiple ratings and I won't rule out multiple universes, even though most of the ones I've written so far could conceivably fall somewhere within the show's timelines if we had nicer show runners, lol. 

 

Whole different shebang than my Say the Word collection.

Kiss Me by Shae Rated: T [Reviews - 2]
Summary:

So.  I stumbled on some prompts about kissing.  And because the shipper in me is almost always inwardly screaming this to our babies every time they’re in close proximity onscreen, I decided why the hell not.

Summary:

”…it’s a funny thing.  Finding your soulmate at the end of the world.  All the bullshit is stripped away, leaving what matters most.“

 

Inspired by this dialogue prompt:  “Take the long way around." 

 

A post-Season 7 fluff piece.  Probably post-Season 8 or 9 or Series Finale with the pacing on this maddening show, lol, but I hope it gives you the happy feels, nonetheless.

Summary: Past Featured Story

She seemed to melt a little more with each knuckle that he kissed, opening her fingers like an unfurling flower, and by the time his mouth caressed her palm, one pale leg had risen to slink over his hip and the heat of her settled over the small of his back.  “I been lookin’, Sweetheart.  You just ain’t been payin’ attention for shit.”
