“I had a friend. I don’t talk about him. He was my partner, he got Lori and Carl to safety right after it happened. Him and Lori they were together, they thought I was dead. I know Judith isn’t mine. I know it. I love her, she’s my daughter but she isn’t mine. I had to accept that, I did, so I could keep her alive. I’ll die before she does so, I hope, I can raise her and protect her and teach her how to survive” ~Rick Grimes (7x04)

au where the boys are ghost hunters like in ghost adventures with cameras, lockdowns, and a TV show, etc. and Daniel gets possessed on screen cause apparently v religious people are easier to possess. Jasper and David split from Danny after the entity starts being hostile and the rest of the episode is them trying to figure out how to get the thing out while still getting enough evidence of a haunting 👌👌👌
v v good post anon,,,, you KNOW i love ghost shit,,,,,
Mini rant below because I’ve finally calmed down after a burst of anger this morning. Don’t read it if you don’t want to hear a pro Shane rant.
I have seen it so many times but I guess the fact that I stepped away from this fandom and this blog for a while numbed me to the fact that people will praise their faves for the same things that they shame Shane’s character for. I mean, you do you boo, but I find it really hard to hold some of these characters on a pedestal for being who they are when you can find it easy to condemn Shane for some of the same characteristics.
I get that he wasn’t an A+ human being. He’s problematic, aggressive, possessive and very much so a textbook alpha male but that’s not all he was. If you’re going to look at him as this one dimensional bad guy, I want you to look at all of your faves ( who are also problematic at times ) the same way. After Rick lost Lori, was he only some crazed dude who had gone off of the deep end and jeopardized his people? What about everything that lead up to the whole Negan thing? Everyone is okay with seeing Rick for not only his faults but also his positives but Shane gets overlooked and dogged on.
I want everyone to remember that he genuinely thought Rick was dead. He checked for a heartbeat, heard nothing, cried over his friend and still blocked the door when it all went to shit. He kept his promise to Rick and made sure Lori and Carl were safe. You can see the guilt he feels THE MOMENT RICK COMES BACK. Like that is not something he ever wanted and that guilt is a huge part as to why I write him the way that I do. I think that guilt ate away at him until there was barely anything left at all. I mean, how would you feel if you were the one who had assumed your best friend was dead? How would you feel if you left him in that hospital that was quickly overrun by walkers and had to go get Lori and Carl and tell them that he hadn’t made it? And then how would you feel knowing that you had slept with his wife ( multiple times ) because you both had thought he was dead and then him waltzing into your camp? And then Lori made it nearly impossible for him to have any sort of relationship with any of them! He went from being “Uncle Shane” and having that family even after it all went to shit to having all of it ripped away from him. I think all of those things might make someone a little crazy.
And then what he said about doing those things in order to make it in this world, guess what he was right and Rick eventually turned into the type of person he had to because that’s the only way they could make it. But again, Rick is praised and loved and Shane is so hated.
I could literally go on and on and on about this because my love for Shane is so strong but basically the moral of the story is can you please tag your anti-Shane posts so that I don’t have to see it? Okay thanks.
