Carol is straddling Daryl, they’re kissing and when she takes his shirt off, he gets self-conscious. He nuzzles his head in her neck and it breaks her heart that after all this time he still can’t see how beautiful he really is. She gives him a kiss on the temple, cups his face in her hands to make him look at her and says :
“Let me show you something”
She takes her own shirt off and points out her own scars, near her chest, on her stomach and arms.
“Got plently of those on my back too, and tighs. Cigarette burns scars for when dinner was not good enough, belt marks for when he thought I wasn’t good enough… He used whatever he could as long as he could try to hurt me. Destroy me. But he didn’t. I’m still here and he’s not. The people who’ve hurt us are not here anymore. We are.”
She cups his face in her hands again, gently strokes his cheeks and says :
“Where you see scars, I see how strong you are. I see a survivor.”
<b>Me for 6 years:</b> Carol and Daryl are the de facto relationship on The Walking Dead. Their love for one another has gotten them and the group out of countless situations whether they know it or not. Carol was instrumental in endearing Daryl to the group, and Daryl was the rock that Carol needed in her life after losing Sophia. It perplexes me as to why the writers have not legitimized their clear romantic relationship and moved them both forward.<p/><b>Carol:</b> *makes eye contact with Ezekiel*<p/><b>Me:</b> 👌👀👌👀👌👀👌👀👌👀 good shit go౦ԁ sHit👌 thats ✔ some good👌👌shit right👌👌there👌👌👌 right✔there ✔✔if i do ƽaү so my self 💯 i say so 💯 thats what im talking about right there right there (chorus: ʳᶦᵍʰᵗ ᵗʰᵉʳᵉ) mMMMMᎷМ💯 👌👌 👌НO0ОଠOOOOOОଠଠOoooᵒᵒᵒᵒᵒᵒᵒᵒᵒ👌 👌👌 👌 💯 👌 👀 👀 👀 👌👌Good shit<p/></p>
I need a story in which Daryl and Carol are in a loving relationship and Daryl is always picking up stray animals, but like not dogs but little baby birds and baby otters and they help them grow and eventually Daryl uses their little pack to ask Carol to marry him.
WHAT IF at some point of the show, Carol declares her love for Daryl like this:
“I could promise to hold you and to cherish you. I could promise to be there in sickness and in health. I could say ‘till death do us part. But I won’t. Those words are for optimistic couples. The ones full of hope. And I do not stand here in front of you optimistic or full of hope. I am not optimistic, I am not full of hope. I am sure, I am steady. So this, I am sure. You are my partner, my lover, my very best friend. My heart, my heart beats for you. And today, I promise you this: I promise you to lay my heart in the palm of your hand. I promise you.. ME.”
IM SO EMOTIONAL AND THIS SHIT AIN’T EVEN REAL, HELP
