daryl baby :'(

Raise your hand if you would marathon the hell out of a TWD spin-off of Daryl and Carol that mainly consisted of them being domestic as shit and making heart eyes at each other.

I know I’m not the only one.  

Anybody?   

I want another Caryl hug in Season 8.  With hands in hair, shoulder *and* neck nuzzling, full frontal body contact, and kissing.

Gloriously awkward kissing that’s sweet and fumbling–I want blushing, y'all.  And they laugh at themselves because it’s been 100 years and this is their best friend, you know?  The single most important person in each of their lives, and then that light bulb goes off or maybe the blinders just fall away and they’re all oooohhhhh mmmmyyyyy ggggooooddddd

And then they just fucking go for it because if anybody on this trash-fire show deserves it, they do.  Our babies so do. 

Is that really too much to ask? 

Of course, if we even get a smidgen of this, I am dead.  Deader than dead.  Guess I better queue up 9-1-1, lol, and have that ambulance ready. 

So.  I love Caryl.  I want them to be together.  And as much as I would welcome *any* unambiguously romantic overture between these characters, I'm at the point where I feel like it almost *has* to come from Daryl to Carol, else there's always going to be that plausible deniability thing with people that ship him with characters X,Y, and Z and the molded tofurkey he probably found on a run that one time, y'all.

I mean.  I see the chemistry, the continuously deepening feelings and the slow (as Christmas because Gimps sucks donkey ass at pacing) progression from two damaged people that just met in the middle of traumatic circumstances to two damaged people that are each other’s human credential if you will, but others out there? 

They either genuinely don’t or simply refuse to, and that’s okay.  To each their own.  Really.  They can ship Carol or Daryl with aliens and a butt boil for all that I care because that is their absolute right.

 At the same time, though, I want Gimps and Co. to make it plain, once and for all, that Daryl wants her as a man wants a woman.  That she’s the one he wants by his side, trying and starting over as they take back their lives and just live instead of survive.  That she’s simply it, his reason, the one thing or person that he’s holding on to (as Morgan says…they’re all holding on to something) in this mixed up world. 

I want it to be settled, finally.  No more, but you could read it this way if you were wearing these color shipper goggles.  I mean, yeah.  Mine are Cherokee Rose tinted, but whatever. The response these two get whenever Gimps baits that nifty, nasty little hook of his tells me there are so many others out there that wear the same color shades. 

So yeah. Batter up, Daryl Dixon.  It’s your turn to complete that transition from boy to man.  Do it for her because she deserves it.  No more ambiguity and no more pussyfooting around (goes for you, too, Gimps). 

Go claim your woman and leave no more doubts. 

Because I’m tired.

It’s been 84 fuckin’ years.  

So, look.   I'm not at all surprised Melissa moved me to tears in this episode because she slays me every damn time.  But can I just give a shoutout to Mr. Reedus?

Because that little “Why’d you go?” just about finished me off.  The hurt in his voice, and his body language the whole episode…I think the man is pretty underrated.  He’s really brought Daryl to life, and when he and MMB share scenes?  It’s fucking magic, man.  She’s already a master class (IMO), but when they’re in scenes together, they elevate each other’s game. 

Take note, TPTB.  Forget this whole absence makes the heart grow fonder shit, and reunite these two for good.  They’re each compelling in their right, but together?  Let me just put it this way.  Was Mulder not better when he had Scully by his side?  What about William Adama and Laura Roslin?  I could go on, but I won’t.  And really.  Carol and Daryl, in my mind at least, are just as much a part of each other as these characters are a part of each other. 

So.  Let this latest separation be blessedly short.  Because these two?  Deserve to be together.  They deserve to know love and be able to actually bask in it, openly, for more than 5 damn seconds. 

And hey. If it’s the whole thrill of the chase, longing pining thing you’re afraid of losing, don’t be.  Because I think we all know, MMB and NR are more than up to the task of continuing their beautiful story and taking it forward naturally.  The characters, the portrayers, and the fans have all earned that much.

I agree with your thoughts. The other embraces involved huge amounts of angst and relief because it was after a period of forced and dangerous separation. This time, yes, there's danger, but there's more of an ease and comfort there, even how Carol smiles and how they focused more on her than Daryl here. There's confidence between them,no hesitance or unsurety about if things are okay between them. I wanted more, esp from the dialogue ("it's going to be fine" gave me S2 vibes), but I still liked

I think you summed it up perfectly there. It’s the comfort level that I like here.

I love the way he accepts the hug without any hesitation anymore too. Most of the contact (as was show in a previous ask) is initiated by him, even with other people. He’s rarely shown that much comfort in accepting hugs so unexpectedly like that so there’s that.

And what you describe about her smile, about the look on her face which is more focused on her (like the hug The Same Boat) and she gives him that little squeeze which like too. The physical part of this is great to me.

People are right about the dialogue,it does suck, at least until the last part which did have, to me a least, a season 3 echo from the ‘9 lives remember?’ scene. But other than I agree about the rest of the dialogue.

Now this idea that it’s ‘just another hug’ to me dosen’t  wash in the sense that’s that exactly why I like it. Because it’s ‘not a big deal’ anymore. And that alone makes it a big deal.  In other words ‘its news when it’s not news’.

For two people who came from the backgrounds they came from, who sometimes flinched at sudden moves and contact, to have such ease in their physical interactions. To be able to embrace and react in a normal way that others take for granted is a HUGE deal to me. Like  you said, it was not a hug born out of huge emotions, such as separation or for comfort after a traumatic event. It was just an ordinary thing thing. Saying goodbye, telling someone you love to be careful.

That what makes it important to me. I’ll throw everything else out the window and just focus on that part of it because to me, there is no such thing as an unimportant hug. They are important. They all have meaning, even if the meaning isn’t as big as we want to be.

That’s just my take on it. People can dismiss me as being overly positive but I can’t be any other way. Am a glass half full kind of person. But I don’t hold it against anyone who isn’t.

I’m just gonna let it be what it is and appreciate it is all :)
