I have been inspired by the fascinating relationship between Carol and Daryl on TWD and have had a lot of fun reading and writing in the Caryl fandom. It's amazing that a great group of people who also admire and care about this ship are willing to take the time to express their thoughts and opinions about it in fiction.

What was going on in Daryl's head after the prison fell? Why did he give up looking for everyone else so easily? What made him so completely lose hope? A very Caryl explanation.

Crossroads by darylsdiva1 Rated: M-RPF Liked [Reviews - 238] New!
Summary:

Every year for the last five years—the first two didn’t count because they didn’t get together until the second season wrap party—for the run of the shooting season, from late May until late October, they were together, with strict limits. When they were filming, both focused on the show and each other, for that half of the year, as long as Norman followed the rules Mel set out, they were together.

Friends with Benefits was the term used by most people for what they had and it had worked perfectly for them for the last six years.

Until the start of filming for Season Eight.
