The Blood Done Signed My Name by Praxid
  • Recommended by pistachioinfernal
  • Synopsis: As the apocalypse crashes down around them, Daryl and Merle only have each other in the flight from their childhood home. The struggle to survive brings out the anger, resentment, and love that forever tie them together.
  • Tags: violence, zombies, racial slurs, attempted sexual assault.
  • Comments: It was a shame that the show didn't have time to explore the love and contempt that the Dixon brothers have for each other. So it's nice to see that troubled relationship get explored more. Read if you're a Dixon fan.

Once Bitten Twice Died by Cider Sky
  • Recommended by pistachioinfernal
  • Synopsis: Daryl stood, glancing down at the bite wound, angry and swollen and gushing precious blood. A death sentence. Except, he wakes up three days later, alive as the rest of the them.
  • Tags: violence, zombies, gore.
  • Comments: While it's unlikely that we'll see someone only become partially a zombie on the show, here's hoping that if they do, they do it as well as Cider Sky's done.

This Old Death by handful_ofdust
  • Recommended by pistachioinfernal
  • Synopsis: Rick doesn't go into Atlanta, because he meets the Governor coming out of it. Things change.
  • Pairings: Rick/Governor
  • Tags: violence, zombies, male/male, alternate season three.
  • Comments: Author takes what should be a crack!paring, and makes it work. Wonderfully in character fic, which is not only complete, but has a sequel. WARNING: This could be considered a Dark Universe fic. Rick has an influence on the Governor, but the reverse is also true.

Loginquitas by jemlou
  • Recommended by pistachioinfernal
  • Synopsis: What if Sophia was found by a stranger, another survivor? Takes place during season two.
  • Pairings: Daryl/OFC
  • Tags: violence, cannibalism, zombies
  • Comments: OFC's are usually sickeningly sweet damsels, but not this one. Ruby has flaws, fears, and a wonderful backstory. It's also an interesting AU of season two as well.

Conditioned Behaviour by thelongcon
  • Recommended by pistachioinfernal
  • Synopsis: He knows whom he wants to stand by. Rick and whatever home the Sheriff claims as his own is worth dying for.
  • Parings: Rick/Daryl
  • Tags: spoilers from season 4 ep. 16, violence, hurt/comfort, mentions of child abuse.
  • Comments: Portraying a believably tender and poignant romantic relationship between Darly and Ric.

Something To Tell You by Richonne
  • Recommended by pistachioinfernal
  • Synopsis: Rick and Michonne decide to tell Carl about their relationship.
  • Parings: Rick/Michonne
  • Comments: Cute little one shot about Rick/Michonne.

Down In The Willow Garden by Praxid
  • Recommended by pistachioinfernal
  • Synopsis: When the group spends the winter in Daryl's hometown, Carol finds herself joining him in a dangerous journey through his past.
  • Parings: Daryl/Carol
  • Comments: Not just a romance, but also a mystery, as Carol tries to uncover why and how Daryls mother disappeared so many years ago. Not cannon compliant with season three, but Praxid paints a vivid and compelling tale. It's at times touching, horrific, beautiful, terrifying, and sad.

The Walking Dead: Real Monsters by Visambros
  • Recommended by Angel 4 Mii
  • Synopsis: Written as if you were playing the game, it follows the story of Nate as he tries to survive the apocalypse. Takes place before you see him in the 400 Days DLC. Very well written, emotionally engaging, and in character.
