Anam Cara by Booksrbetter Rated: E-RPF Liked [Reviews - 107]
Summary:

This is a McReedus fan fiction story. Melissa changes her life dramatically between Seasons Four and Five and doesn't tell Norman about it. Norman returns to Atlanta to film Season Five determined to show Melissa that he cares about her and that they can be happy together. Melissa doesn't fully trust that Norman won't go back to his playboy days.

This story is AU in that Melissa and Norman are forced to face challenges that they never would have imagined. No zombies but expect that their world is very different.

Summary:

Carol and Daryl are pushed into living together to protect Sophia. There are some recycled characters and a familiar plot line. They both have trust issues and more than enough baggage to keep the story moving. It's kind of AU in that Dary is less angry and Carol more assertive.
