Here’s a lil wip of a new drawing I’m working on rn. I’m using @edenmo122’s amazing edit as a lil reference.
Well, I had to take this picture with my phone bc unfortunately my internet just died yesterday. Isn’t that great? Well, the only thing I can do now is wait. I’ve to work on a school project, but I rlly need internet for that. I hate my life rn. Anyway, enjoy my lil desus wip! ❤
Pretend he’s Jesus at a big party that the Hilltop, Alexandria, and the Kingdom are throwing and he’s trying to find Daryl.
“Has anyone seen Daryl?”
“He said he’d be here.”
“Where the fuck is Daryl?”
“I’m gonna go find Daryl.”
problem with being a trained hunter is that you’re always hunting. You don’t know it, but it’s in the way you
move, the way you breathe. All natural
like, you start walking softer and breathing calmer. Truth be told, he’d always had to walk on
eggshells; it was the way things were.
Merle had always just barged through like a rabid coon, but he had
always taken to being unseen as often as possible.
that years of having to be ready for walkers at all times, and well, it was
ingrained in him now. He couldn’t force
himself to make a sound as he walked if he tried. After running like hell, with his lungs on
fire, his breathing was barely more than a whisper. This would be all well and good if it didn’t
mean he had a nasty habit of eavesdropping.
not so much eavesdropping as accidentally overhearing. No one ever heard him coming. It was a gift and a curse. A gift for him when he had his eyes set on an
enemy. A curse when he heard things he
knew weren’t meant for his ears.

when he walked into a clearly private conversation, and really, who has those

closed doors were made for? And now, now…
he couldn’t get that shit outta his head.

kept following him wherever he went for the rest of the day yesterday. It had snuck up on him around corners while
he was dreaming last night, and this morning didn’t seem to be any different. He needed
changed into a clean long sleeve shirt and vest that Jesus had brought him a
few days ago, grabbed his crossbow, his backpack, and an apple, and hustled for
the main gate. It was early enough that
he might miss everyone if he hurried. The
guards were just cracking the gate for him when he heard a voice he’d become
all to familiar with lately call his name.
Son of a bitch! If this asshole wasn’t takin’ his sweet ass
time with the damn gate I coulda already been gone. I can still get outta here. Just pretend you don’t hear nothing, Daryl.
Daryl,” the guard said.
“Hn?” He didn’t mean to sound like a dick but he
needed this gate open now and this
asshole wanted to talk about it.
think Jesus needs you,” he said calmly, and pointed somewhere in the distance
behind him. He turned to where the guy
was pointing. Yup, there was Jesus
making some signal with his hand, but he couldn’t make it out. He shielded his eyes from the early morning
sun and squinted. Looked like a
five. Give you five? I don’t think so.
turned to go out the gate; it had to
be open now, only to find it closed again.
He gave a silent growl of frustration.
This was not how this morning
was supposed to go. He almost flinched
when he heard boots saunter up behind him.
He turned to find Jesus beaming, yes beaming, at him. Who the fuck beamed this early in the morning
for waiting, Daryl,” he said as his smile softened.
Asshole up there didn’t give me much of a
choice. He glared up at the guy for a couple
seconds. He said nothing, just watched
Jesus pull a white long sleeve thermal over a black wife-beater. He thought, and not for the first time, how the hell does this guy scavenge on his
own? He used to be the kind of guy
that bought into stereotypes, Merle had set him on that path, and Glenn had
helped him see right, but Jesus was so… soft.
you off to so early, Daryl?” Jesus asked as he slid on his blue vest.

you?” he replied.
just shook his head at his rude tone and smiled. “I wouldn’t have stopped you otherwise,” he
said as he pulled on his leather jacket, and pulled his long hair out the back.

needed guns. Anything else and he would
have said no outright, but not this. He
nodded his agreement, and Jesus beamed up at him, again. Jesus stood up, pulled his backpack over both
shoulders then looked up at the guy manning the gate. “Can you open up for us, Micah?” he said with
thing, Jesus,” he said and went to work quickly and efficiently.
