and thea gilmore

Delight your friends, irritate your enemies, and please yourself by declaring war on Christmas with this dark tribute to the coldest time of the year, where death walks the streets and the days are short and brutal. 

I made one of these years ago, and I looked back at it this year and thought…I can do better.

traveled light, traveled blind | | | a Walking Dead mix for Clementine, Sarita, Nick, and Sarah, who all deserve better, and the Season 2 that should have been. The one about an 11 year old girl struggling to balance her moral compass against the horrors of surviving the apocalypse, those who help her or drag her further down, and what it means to really survive.

The one about an 11 year old girl who gets caught up with William Carver, a group that opposes him (guest starring Eddie and whichever of the 400 Days cast doesn’t go with Tavia), and has to pick sides and go to war if she wants to save her friends. And maybe herself, too.

The one that isn’t about Kenny or Luke or anyone else at its heart except for Clementine.

Wait what do you mean none of that actually happened what’s going on who’s driving this thing.
