Whenever I'm into something, it's really all the way. I've been a fan of Star Wars since Empire first hit the theaters, a fan of U2 since October, and a fan of Big Country for as long as they existed - and beyond.
And I've always been into fanfiction, although the Star Wars stories I wrote while I was still in school will certainly never see the light of day!
In 2013, The Walking Dead became my most recent addition to my obsessions, and this one has actually prompted me into not only writing but PUBLISHING my first piece of fanfiction. Therefore, I can now relate to the longtime contributors to sites such as this one who ask their readers for feedback.
Please tell me if you like what you've read, but more importantly, tell me where I can improve my writing. Any and all feedback will be much appreciated!

Stories by lovesdaryl
Summary:

These are short ones in answer to Rhinozilla's 30 Days of Caryl challenge on tumblr. As far as possible, they will fall into place with my other stories, but I will try to keep them readable as standalones. Rating just to be on the safe side as I don't know yet what - apart from some Dixon mouth - I will come up with in the later ones yet to come. I'm posting them here so there's a place where they're all collected.

Closer by lovesdaryl Rated: G Liked [Reviews - 5]
Summary:

This is touch explored from the point of view of Carol during The Hug as she has always been the one to initiate touch between them and push his limits just a little bit further out every time - the initiative for this certainly couldn't have come from Daryl, so this is Carol's story to tell.
