7 Days by twriter12 AU. It’s been almost a year since the
survivors arrived in Alexandria. In safety and comfort, Rick starts a
new life with Michonne. That happiness is threatened when Rick awakes
from an injury and doesn’t remember his new life.
The Art of Control by avintagekiss24
Maggie Greene has always been Michonne’s
Achilles heel. Whatever the green eyed beauty wants, Michonne usually
gives. So, when Maggie suggests a night out at one of her famous social
mixers, Michonne obliges. Unbeknownst to all, a blue eyed stranger will
shift her actuality from distinct to obscure. Limits will be tested,
desires will be realized, and no one will be left the same.
Bad Thangs by kendrawriter32 Rick and Michonne are putting the pieces back together after
the walker herd hit Alexandria hard, and the losses it brought them.
With Maggie pregnant and the future for them all to consider, Michonne
knows exactly what she wants, and so does Rick. They want each other.
And they will have each other. In as many ways, on as many surfaces, in
as many positions as they can get each other. The only question is who
they’ll hurt, and what plans they’ll derail, in the process. Richonne
smut, with a dash of angsty romance, stirred in with some plot. Enjoy!

Ride by cakeby_thepound
“Every April, the county fair would come into town with a setup like
this,” Rick fondly recalled, surveying the scene around him. He and
Michonne had stumbled onto what was once the campus of a middle school,
where a small carnival had been constructed in its parking lot. They
were supposed to be on a weapons run, but in reality, it’d turned into a
search for anything useful. And if nothing else, schools tended to have
plenty of bathroom tissue and cafeteria food. “We would take Carl,” he
went on to say. “Make a whole weekend out of it.

The list of my current favorite Richonne stories is too long but here are some!
Machine heart by @kendrawriter: AU sci-fi. A futuristic world described to perfection by the author. Rick managed to have what he always coveted to lose everything in an instant.
7 days by @twriter12: Rick and Michonne are in love and happy, Rick becomes amnesic and forgets that they are more than friends. Will he find his memory? The best love triangle of the moment!!
Love, M by @tworus A Richonne story full of unspoken and misunderstanding that has lasted for years. Your emotions are going to take a hit: we are sad for them, we cry with them, and we love with them.
Undenably yours by @inkslinger21
If you like crime fiction this story is for you. Suspense, action, a dose of humor, 2 strong characters and 2 complementary protagonists. But this story is a sequel, so first read: Accidentally yours
The beginning by @vegasloversteel: Because it’s a father/daughter story, full of humor and love. How 2 soulmates falled in love and the construction of their family. Aaaaaand their first meeting is the craziest ever written in this fandom!!
Found by @vegasloversteel: We vibrate with the characters from the first line of this story. Anger, rancor, hope and a lot of love: the author describes these emotions to perfection and makes the characters so realistic.
L4yers of war by @fitholala
The author gives us a dark and angry Michonne that Rick is trying to save from darkness. The characters are beautifully worked.
This Ain’t Georgia by @siancore: Because the suspense and emotions are always intense in this story. There is no respite: the author plays with our nerves and our emotions and we ask for more!
Red Dirt Roadby @siancore: If you want something fresh, light and carefree this story is made for you. You will plunge back into the memory of your first true love.
Back to the fields by @thebaetide
AU Zombie. If you love a crazy/angry/jealous Rick this story it’s for you. The best Rick is always the one who fights for his family. A Michonne strong independent and mommy bear as we love her.
The Edge of hellby @thebaetide: an AU of an AU. We follow a family (and their friends) who is facing the onset of an epidemic where the dead come back to life to eat the living. Does it remind you of anything? Except that in this story Michonne and Rick are married parents of 3 children. The story of a family whose imperfections make it perfect. For me the best Grimes 2.0 family written. You will benefit even better by reading first: Sympathy for the Devil andJust Call Me Lucifer stories
Must’ve Been Somethin’ Else, Then by @idcabtthisish
No matter what type of Richonne you like, you’ll find it in one of these one shots!
Humidity by @nyese3529: a really fun, playful Richonne College AU. Definite page-turner with a lot of laughs. I’m hooked!
Skanky Jadis by @yellehughes: this is hilariously good. It’s a unique take on the “I lay with him after” scene with the funniest internal dialogue I’ve read in ages.
Mama by @sneetchstar: fluffy and lovely Richonne Grimes family fic. It’s oh so cute. I’m getting teary-eyed thinking about it! Ha!
The Note by @severelybabykryptonite: this is an adorable Richonne High School AU. I could not stop reading it. I read it again when I went to get the link just now! SBK ALWAYS delivers the goods.
El Paso by @rubducked: this is one of the most unique AU fics I’ve read. It’s so well-written that you feel as if you’re right there in the story. Very smart; very engaging. @rubducked is one of the premier wordsmiths in the fandom right now.
Queen of Anything by @birdnmouse: gorgeous glimpses into canon Richonne and their interactions. At times funny, playful and touching. Very well-written. @birdnmouse gifts us with with absolute Richonne gold.
Girls Night by @tearrag: this is the author’s first ever fic. It’s funny and has a unique take on our faves getting together and sharing in laughs and drinks. If you read this, remember to leave some feedback and encouragement :)
The yellow truck slogged along the red-dirt roads in this impoverished corner of the Navajo reservation last week, its belly full of water — liquid gold in a treasure chest on wheels. The truck’s driver, Darlene Arviso, steered it patiently, up, down and around pockmarks chiseled on the ground by a recent downpour.
Her job is simple: She brings clean water to people who have none of it at home. One-third of the roughly 50,000 households on the Navajo reservation face this problem, one of the highest concentrations of water-poor homes in the country. A multiyear drought has only made it worse.
Scientists behind the National Climate Assessment, a major report measuring the effects of climate change in the United States, heard Navajo elders speak of a perceptible decline in snowfall over the years and the gradual disappearance of streams, lakes and shallow wells atop the flat-topped mesas that dot the reservation.
As some of you may know, I lost all of my recent Richonne fic updates before I could back them up. It’s been really time-consuming for me to re-write everything. I had updates for This Ain’t Georgia; One Click Away; Red Dirt Road; Overlay; and Worth the Wait (I’m effing livid about losing that update - I was in tears).
In all honesty, I am not feeling as supported in this fandom as I once did. I’m not pointing fingers, that’s just the truth of how I feel. I am not feeling inspired or motivated to re-write the updates at all at this point. I put in so much effort and have been left feeling underappreciated. Maybe it is the issues with the site. Maybe I’ve lost a lot of my following. Whatever it is, it’s making me tired.
Thanks to those who have read and reviewed my fics lately. You’re appreciated. Thanks to the silent readers, too.
It’s with a heavy heart that I am informing you that I’ll be taking a break from writing for Richonne.
I hope at least a few of you will be here when I return.
Fic authors self rec! When you get this, reply with your favorite five fics that you've written, then pass on to at least five other writers (◠‿◠✿)
Thanks, Anon. I was also tagged by the ever-lovely @alex3-11-13.
This was tough. I’ve written so many fics that I love and it’s hard to choose, but here goes:
1. The Way Forward - This Richonne fic is my baby and holds a special place in my heart; this was the first fic that I really got to explore my own OCs and take the canon TWD universe and create my own communities and villains. I was also able to write a lot of action scenes, which I found to be fun. It’s one of my more popular fics and has had 150,000 views to date. It’s mind-blowing! A huge thank you to the fandom for the tremendous love and support for this one.
2. Comic Book Club- Pure fluff! This Richonne AU is only 3 chapters long, but it was so much fun to write. Based on a prompt from @tfry1440 about Rick getting jealous over something silly.
3. Red Dirt Road- Teenage Richonne AU. This is a current fic that was based on an Anon prompt for high school Richonne. I love working on this story. It’s been an absolute pleasure to visualise and write.
4. A Thankless Life - This is a Francis x Reba fic. My first time writing anything for Thomas Harris’ characters. I was chuffed with it even though I didn’t get much feedback, because I love the characters and pairing so much and felt like I did them justice.
5. This Ain’t Georgia - Based on a request from @alex3-11-13 for a Richonne fic where Rick and Michonne were married before the ZA. I love this because I really get to show my range with writing action sequences, emotional scenes, and OCs.
I learned the path to Heaven is full of sinners and believers, Learned that happiness on earth ain’t just for high achievers, I’ve learned, I’ve come to know, There’s life at both ends, Of that red dirt road
