dwight what are you even doing

Entertainment Weekly: But he has that scene at the end where Daryl tells Dwight, “I get why you did it. Why you took it. You were thinking about someone else. That’s why I can’t.” So he understands why Dwight went down that road, right?
NR: Of course, and that’s a noble thing to do, but it’s the same reason why Daryl can’t do what Dwight does.

Entertainment Weekly: I love the two big scenes we have between Daryl and Negan, because the first time after he is caught trying to escape, Daryl is very defiant and doesn’t even flinch when Negan winds up to hit him with Lucille right in the face. The second scene is a bit different in that we see you flinching a bit whenever Negan starts waving the bat around, and we think maybe Daryl’s gonna break, before he says he’s Daryl, and not Negan. Is there ever a moment where he’s tempted or thinking of taking the deal? What’s going through his head there? 

NR: First off, in that first scene, even being in that jail cell, Daryl’s thinking he deserves it. Like, whatever happens to him, he deserves it, but he can’t say he’s Negan because it would give up all of the hope that Glenn had. Glenn was this optimistic guy. He was his friend. He’s done so much and that’s the last thread of humanity that he has left, is saving face for his friend. It’s as much for Glenn as it is for Daryl, you know? That’s the last thing he has left.

Entertainment Weekly: Is there a part of Daryl that just wants Negan to end it? Especially that first time when he just comes at him with that bat and Daryl doesn’t flinch at all. Is there just part of him that’s just ready for it to be over?
NR: No, Daryl’s a fighter. He fights to the end, but in saying out loud his name instead of Negan’s name — it’s the last shred of himself that he has and for his friends. I assume he thinks he’s going to get killed right there when he says he’s not Negan. He’s signing up for more torture, but he’s doing it for the love of his friend.

The Walking Dead: Norman Reedus explains Daryl’s big choice

Just in case anyone needs actual evidence of what I’ve already said. Thanks. 


Negan heard the faint sound of groans coming from Dwight’s room and decided to investigate. He swung the door open to reveal Dwight with hand around his member faintly whispering your name. Negan’s booming laughter filled the room, Dwight immediately stopping his motions and attempting to cover himself. 

“y/n huh? That’s what gets you off? Bet you were fantasizing about her on all fours right? Don’t you have some fuckin’ work to do instead of sitting here getting yourself off?” Dwight face flushed red in embarrassment as he quickly pulled his pants up and to make it even worse, you came strolling down the corridor at just that moment. 

Dwight took one look at you and rushed out the door as fast as he could not even bothering to say hi. You tried to get his attention but he seemed to refuse making any eye contact with you which was odd considering how friendly the two of you usually were. You turned to Negan with a look of confusion on your face.

“What’s got his panties in a bunch?” Negan smirked.

“Caught your boy with his pants around his ankles touching himself to the thought of you.” You sputtered, unable to think of a response, Negan laughed at your loss for words. “Just fuck already so I don’t ever have to see that shit again, I swear his balls will forever be engraved in my fucking memory.” 

Dawn and the Gun, Dwight and the Crossbow


[After Denise is shot down]
Dwight: Still getting the hang of her. Kicks like a bitch. But a…
Daryl: Shoulda done it.
Dwight: What was that? Seriously I didn’t catch what you said.
Daryl: I shoulda killed ya.
Dwight: Yeah you probably should’ve… So here we are… Kinda begs the question, right? Who brought this on who? I mean, I get that you’ll just have to take my word for this, but… She wasn’t even the one I was aiming for… Like I said. Kicks like a bitch… It’s nothing personal.


[After Beth is shot]
Dawn: (Mouthing what looks like “It wasn’t me.”/”I didn’t do it”)
Daryl: (Shoots her down)
Shepherd: No, hold your fire! It’s over… It was just about her... Stand down

So I’m not even going to point out that obviously this is pretty familiar looking to everyone, right? Blonde gets shot infront of people she cares about/care about her. Yeah I saw it to. But I’m not focusing on what was done. I’m fucking focusing on what is being said.

How’s about I throw in something new for you all. Walk with me here.

“She wasn’t even the one I was aiming for” / “It was just about her.”

An episode that they purposefully used former Beth refrences in (The booze, the proving she’s strong, the chewing Daryl out, and the pacing of Beth centered episodes) having a scene where a woman gets shot down – And no I’m not fucking trying to take away from Denise as a whole, that’s not what this is about – and having lines like the above being put in, screams PAY. THE. FUCK. ATTENTION.

To what, you may wonder? Dwight’s lines are heavily focused on. They make sure to focus on him as he’s explaining about the gun having a kick and it being a bitch to handle AND THEN explaining that it wasn’t about Denise. None of what happened was about Denise. It was Dwight going for Daryl, but fucking up because he misfired/had a kickback.

I will scream this until the end of time when I say It. Was. Not. Dawn. Who. Shot. Beth.

CAROLIGHT FIC WEEK ~ 7th - 13th November 2016

HERE IT IS! The first Dwight x Caroline fic week! I know…. I’m super excited too!

So, for every day in the week after the finale there will be a prompt/theme for you to play with and post a fill of Dwight x Caroline fanfiction for! How exciting! 

No real rules, just write as creatively as you can for the themes as you like and post your wonderful work on the corresponding day. You can do every day, one day, a few days–as many as you want. It can be a drabble, a oneshot or even the first chapter of a multi-chapter!

7th November - MISSING MOMENTS - anything the series missed? A quiet, non-plot progressing scene you’d like to have seen? More forest encounters? That goes here!

8th November- ALTERNATE UNIVERSE/MODERN AUs- How would Dwight and Caroline look transplanted into modern times? Coffee shop AU? Or, keep in the time setting but change their story. What if they met in a different way? Or the elopement [sob] didn’t fail? 

9th November- CAROLIGHT WITH HORACE!- anything you want as long as it involves everyone’s favourite pug <3 

10th November- PINING IN THE TIME JUMPS/TIME APART- anything set in the times they’ve spent apart in S2–could be in the year between episodes 4 and 5 , the seven months between episodes 5 and 6–or if you can bear it, after they’re separated in episode 7 onwards :(

11th November- CAROLIGHT WITH THEIR FRIENDS/ENEMIES- the rest of the cast’s time to shine! Dwight talking to Demelza about his feelz? George being his usual snakey self and goading either of them about each other? Their relationship from Ray Penvenen’s perspective? Anything involving another character and Carolight is for this day.

12th November-  SMUT/INTIMACY– riding for pleasure as it were ;). If you don’t want to write smut (it IS hard to write PWP for the 18th century!), just interpret this as any kind  of intimacy, so physical intimacy that isn’t smut, or even emotional intimacy. It’s up to you.

13th November- WRITER’S CHOICE DAY!– You have free rein to do whatever kind of Dwight x Caroline takes your fancy or tickles your pickle!

These themes are guides for your writing to give you some ideas but don’t feel confined by them! Fic week is really just to build up the number of Caroline/Dwight fics we have so really… anything goes as long as you take part and post some fic! Again, you don’t have to do all of them, or even most of them. Anything you feel you can contribute will be much appreciated :)

Tag your work with ‘#dwight x caroline’/’#caroline x dwight’ or with either of their names and I’ll be sure to find it!

Let me know if you have any questions but other than that, get writing ready for fic week after the finale!
