We might be getting some great CARYL and even McReedus moments on the way there…there…on the way back from there…!!!

CARYL On My Lovelies - The Best Is Yet To Come!



***And yes - my shipper googles are most definitely noticing that the Mighty Six all seem to be grouped as duos - Richonne, Gleggie and CARYL!!!

detective-pookie-dixon said: I received an anon accusing me of twisting the truth and believing Norman said a Caryl spoiler when all I said was It gives me confidence that Norman asked about a Caryl shirt and said we will love this season. I can’t believe how they’re twisting it

It’s because they are projecting their fears into it.  What some folks are coming up with is just….amazing.

Wow!  Norman shared spoilers??? Where?  I didn’t see that!

Norman confirmed Caryl will be canon. Holy shit!!! Where!!!?? I want to see THAT!

All Normie said was that we Carylers will be happy..and judging from the spoilers this gal will be very happy.  Our babies are together fighting side by side again. Sharing screen time. YES!!!

I also love how they are saying I said that no Be*hyler had a positive experience with NR.  Um WRONG. I said Norman hasn’t fawned over the B ship like he has at least three times with Carylers.  I did hear when a fan told him they shipped the B, he said “This season will be mind blowing” or some such thing.  No pictures snapped for EK.  No asking more about it. 

Yes. I feel Norman ships Caryl. Remember, all three times it was NORMAN that brought up Caryl.  Not us.   Hell, he turned me to get a better look at my shirt, twice.

October is going to be a bitter pill to swallow for some of the fandom based on what spoilers we have including, but not limited to:

Daryl and Carol get reunited extremely early on

Daryl and Carol are sticking tight together and kicking some ass and B*th is not with them.  And no, to my knowledge Daryl and Carol are NOT looking for her. They are probably focusing on keeping their asses alive.

EK hasn’t been seen (note:  seen, she could be in a studio somewhere) filming since MSF, and even that wasn’t 100% confirmed.  She’s pretty blatant about NOT being in GA and pretty blatant about her music stuff. It’s not a big secret.

I also find it funny that at the MCC EK and NR were on separate floors, during the photo op they were separated, there was no B*thyl photo op, and EK’s panel was canceled. If Be@h is such a big deal, why was the panel canceled? I’d love to know what the attendance was at that panel as it was canceled 15 min before it was to start.

I believe to casual viewers, those outside of Tumblr, they couldn’t really care where the blonde babysitter went.  TPTB tried to pump up what little interest there was for B and it seems to have puttered out.  The onslaught of pure Caryl goodness in the promo pics alludes to that.

Anyway.  If you hate Caryl so much, stay outta the tag. Step away from the fandom if it pisses you off so much.  Take a page out of Norman’s book and go pet a kitten and please stop harassing folks on Tumblr that had a great experience.

You guys think that just because the show threw you some crumbs with the ugly promos it's now safe to lie about caryl spoilers and getting secrets from Norm On top of it all you decide to do some big expose of AMC twitter because Bethyl got a real spoiler from them. It's pathetic and ugly just like you and and that cat you are pimping out. What are you going to say when Daryl chooses Beth and Carol is left in the dust. Beth is more important than Carol ever was and your hate doesn't change that


Hi there “friendly”,

Wow! It seems like you have a lot of things to be upset about today and believe it or not I am actually sorry about that - it’s not fun to have so much negativity and worry in your life and just like everyone else I can empathize with you because we’ve all felt crummy about things not going our way at one point or another.

Obviously as the recipient of this “lovely message” it looks like I have had something to do with your current anger level and for what it’s worth I do want to point out that it certainly wasn’t my intention for things to turn out this way for you.

I hope I can clear up some misconceptions that have you worked up so much;

1. TWD did not throw “crumbs” to the CARYL ship through the promos released for the upcoming season and while I am not going to deny that Carylers are extremely happy to see Carol and Daryl together again I don’t think anybody is assuming canon based on those pictures alone. Carol and Daryl were separated for a lot of Season 4 so the fact that they appear to be paired up again is naturally going to amplify our excitement and joy BUT I am personally not assuming “romance” just because of the fact that they look amazingly fierce next to each other.

2. Your accusation of Carylers “lying” about CARYL spoilers supposedly received by Norman Reedus at the Montreal Comic Con is completely and utterly invalid. The person you are referring to did not say that she was given any “secrets” during her meeting with Norman and any interpretations of her comments and post that say otherwise are WRONG. I suggest you refer to the original post first and make your own judgment since I am sure the story has been misconstrued and twisted ridiculously at this point.
She is a very trustworthy, reliable and respectful person and someone I like so I am personally offended by your accusation. The slander needs to end!

3. The post you are referring to as the big AMC Twitter expose had absolutely nothing to do with shipping and it most certainly wasnt aimed at your ship. My point was that the plot detail referenced as FACT couldn’t be considered as such because in the past other FACTS from their twitter didn’t pan out and were obviously PR designed to promote the show. My post doesn’t have any “hate” towards your ship or Beth - nor is any specific blogger mentioned or called out. The pattern simply shows that claiming something as FACT without a reliable source and authentication if repeated enough can become so ingrained that if it doesn’t turn out to be true it can lead to both disappointment and continued tension in the fandom. That applies to all sides!

4. Your interpretation of Beth being more important than Carol is your opinion and not one shared by the entire fandom and obviously not in the CARYL or Carol tag. It all comes down to what character you love and identify with BUT since you brought it up I happen to value Carol a lot-lot more for reasons you wouldn’t be interested in reading. That being said Carol being more “important” to fans or even Daryl shouldn’t have to result in HATE but it’s becoming clear that some certainly think that way.

5. Your insinuation that I am somehow spreading “hate” about Beth is completely unsubstantiated and even a little hurtful.

Just because I ship CARYL and love Carol doesn’t mean I hate Beth or want her “left behind in the dust”! I don’t have the same appreciation for her character which doesn’t translate in HATE as I have never written a post deprecating Beth or Emily Kinney herself. 

I write about Carol because I identify with her and appreciate elements of her character AND I ship CARYL because that bond moves me in ways other relationships don’t!

*I would like to address the personal insults and cheap shots in your message separately!
- If you think the Daryl and Carol promos are “ugly” then don’t look at them!
- If you don’t like my blog or my posts then don’t visit my page and don’t read what I write
- If my opinion and choice of pictures offends you please use the IGNORE button (it’s there for a reason)
- If you don’t like the picture if my beautifully sassy cat then don’t look at it (he is adorable by the way and that comment really hurt my feelings)
- Posting two pictures of my CAT on my own PERSONAL BLOG doesn’t classify as “pimping him out”

I hope I was able to clear up some of your “issues” with me and my posts!
I don’t intend to purposely offend anyone by my outlook and I certainly don’t want to hurt your feelings or start fights!

Please block me because neither ME nor CARYL nor CAROL are going anywhere!

Ship yours and I will ship mine



I see a certain ship has their panties in a bunch because a Caryler had an amazing experience with Norman that happened to skew very pro Caryl. I also find it very humorous they are projecting their insecurities by adding their delusions to her experience.

I’m sorry you guys think she is embellishing or lying or what have you. Fact is Norm questioned HER about her Caryl shirt.  Just like when I saw him and he made it a point to look at my USS Caryl shirt, and upon inspecting it gave his enthusiastic approval.

By my count three Carylers have had very positive experiences with Norman. Who knows, there may be scads more that aren’t here on Tumblr.  None really pushed the Caryl agenda.  Norm took it upon himself to pursue the matter.

Have we heard any word from a B*thyl*r’s experience?  I stay out of tags that don’t interest me so I have no clue.  Has he done the same for their ship? I sure haven’t heard if it is so.  I’m pretty sure a certain somebody would be trumpeting that little tidbit from every corner of the interwebs if it were.


Stuns my brain that people that can’t stand an actress/ship continue to troll the fucking tag.  I won’t even go into how some slam MMB, yet claim to be NR fans. Um, Mel is one of his dearest friends.  I wouldn’t be slamming somebody that is dear to somebody I admire.

Do we know for certain what is going to happen in S5?  No.  Personally, I highly doubt that Carol and Daryl are going to…shall we say…get it on.  However, we do know they reunite fairly early on and it looks like they are staying mighty close to each other past the MSF. We know Carol and Daryl have an extremely strong bond and it has only been a few weeks since they last saw each other, not months as some would like to believe. 

After Carol and Daryl work through what happened, I’m pretty sure he isn’t letting his Silver Fox out of his sight.  I’d like to think he makes it pretty clear she’s his friend and his lady.

So if Caryl doesn’t interest you, may I suggest staying out of the tag, ship whatever it is you ship, and quit shitting on a fan’s awesome experience because you feel it doesn’t bode well for YOUR particular ship.

SFX on Walking Dead Season 5 Episode 2


"We’re in a peaceful Georgia forest mid-May. A gentle breeze drifts through the trees and sun-spotted leaves rustle. But amid the serenity, death is present. Or more specifically the undead. Four walkers have surrounded a large boulder. Atop sits a young African American man wearing the white collar and black shirt of a priest. The priest kicks at their hands and screams in terror. ‘Help! Help! anybody Help!’.


From out of the forest tears what at first looks like a platoon of infantrymen. But as the brush clears, their faces grow familiar- Rick Grimes, his son Carl, Daryl Dixon, Maggie Greene, Glen Rhee, Michonne, Carol Peletier.
In a heartbeat, they envelop the walkers, Rick grabs one, slams its head against the boulder, and throws it to the ground.
Carol drives her knife through the skull of another.
Michonne hits hers twice in the back of its head with the butt of a rifle, then a third time after it drops.
The threat eliminated, Glenn shouts ‘are we good?’.
After scanning for more walkers Rick replies ‘Yeah’.
He looks up at the terrified man and offers him his hand.

Cut!’ cries director David Boyd.

Actor Seth Gilliam climbs off the rock and the stars of the Walking Dead take a breath.
It’s day three of shooting the second episode of the show’s fifth season here at Raleigh studios in Senoia.”


Main Points To Note;

*Father Gabriel is Introduced….
*Tyreese and Judith are not with them already
*The Group is split from Abraham & Co

- The SFX article is for now only available in print form and StD also have this spoiler posted…

You handled that nasty anon pretty darn well. From a Bethyler to a Caryler, keep on being amazing. I love people like you :)


Hi New Friend,

Thank you so much for reaching out to me and for your kind words!
I can’t even tell you how much messages like yours mean to me and TWD fandom as a whole.

People like you prove to me that this “ship war” doesn’t need to and shouldn’t have to exist - just because I ship one and you the other doesn’t automatically mean we “hate each other” and it certainly doesn’t mean that it gives us the right to send toxic anonymous digs to prove that point.
We both enjoy a TV show which alone tells me that chances are we probably have other things in common too! It’s a great start :-)
Thank you again for making me smile today!

And for the record I love people like you too!

Keep Being Amazing xoxo


Daily Drabble

Carol scrubbed a little harder than was necessary to rid Axel’s blood from her face. The coppery tang had been absorbed by her skin and her clothes. It was a smell that had become all too familiar over the past year, but it still had her scrambling to strip out of the soiled clothes and change into cleaner ones.

She could hear the others arguing in the cellblock commons, could hear the tone of defensiveness and hurt in Daryl’s voice that the others couldn’t hear over their own defensiveness and hurt. It was a sound that she knew well.

The gravel of Merle’s voice as he offered his colorful snide comments…that would take some getting used to.
