Stories focused on the family and the friendly relationships of the cast. Plot-focused stories or light day-in-the-life stories. Pretty much anything that isn't focused on romance.The Blood Done Signed My Name by Praxid

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.
Synopsis: Rick doesn't go into Atlanta, because he meets the Governor coming out of it. Things change.
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.
Synopsis: When the group spends the winter in Daryl's hometown, Carol finds herself joining him in a dangerous journey through his past.
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.

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.
