surviving the walkers

Richonne “Say Yes” Review by Lauren Avila


I’m the queen of the world! Woo-hoo! I feel like I’m flying at the front of the most magnificent ship on television. Rick and Michonne Grimes are honestly one of the strongest, healthiest, and inspiring couples I’ve ever seen in any media form. I know it sounds cliche, and they are anything but cliche, but they complete each other. It’s remarkable really because independently they are already capable warriors who don’t NEED anyone but that’s essentially what makes this pair so amazing. Rick and Michonne on their own are survivors, but together they are an unstoppable force. This episode really was a beautiful tribute to each character but a undeniable display of their impressive teamwork. I loved this episode so much I can hardly express why. It was the little things that made me the happiest. I truly appreciate the hardwork that goes into The Walking Dead. The whole cast, crew, writers, and producers are in a caliber quite different from any other tv show out there. It’s such a gift to be able to pick up on new things each time you see an episode. As some fans might have noticed. There was a lot more to the episode than just what was at the surface, as often there is in any episode. Okay, so let’s dive in. There were parts of the episode that I was swooning over as a fangirl but other parts that I found I was completely fascinated by as a regular viewer. I found there was a lot of symbolism and signs going on especially regarding callbacks to other episodes and possible foreshadowing to the future. Let’s first discuss all the callbacks. As a whole, I feel like this episode sort of embodied their journey so far, individually and together. If you look enough into it (as a fangirl), you might even say this was like going down an AISLE of memory lane. ;)

This goofy OC has a story behind him.

Basically I dreamed I was in a Walking Dead-esque scenario, I was in a group and we wanted to survive the walkers, later I found a city where there were GOOD zombies who could talk and be normal lived among the living and the city looked like a very traditional rural Mexican town, with all the decorations and people in folkloric outfits and idunno one of the undead who greeted me looked like Jack Skellington but in a mariachi outfit. 

My group of survivors didn’t trust the undead, whispering and muttering that “just wait and see how they’ll turn against us too.” We were later on a humble werehouse/home thing and got served fried beans and tortillas. 

We ate and then the Mariachi Skellington guided me and we found ourselves on the town Main Street and then I decided to enter the library and they were playing some obscure 90s “kewl” high school version of Scooby Doo that was considered lost media, some lady in there was re-constructing and retracing old posters or lost books of that particular show. And because I do graphic design, she asked me to help her. Then one teenage werewolf gothic character from this non-existent scooby doo show my dream made up, turned out to be Mariachi Skellington when he was alive.

This character is the werewolf from the dream.

Reparenting Affirmations:

I am so glad you were born. You are a good person. I love who you are and am doing my best to always be on your side. You can come to me whenever you’re feeling hurt or bad. You do not have to be perfect to get my love and protection. All of your feelings are okay with me. I am always glad to see you. It is okay for you to be angry and I won’t let you hurt yourself or others when you are. You can make mistakes - they are your teachers. You can know what you need and ask for help. You can have your own preferences and tastes. You are a delight to my eyes. You can choose your own values. You can pick your own friends, and you don’t have to like everyone. You can sometimes feel confused and ambivalent, and not know all the answers. I am very proud of you.

—  Pete Walker, Complex PTSD: From Surviving to Thriving

SUMMARY: I have a request! I was wondering if you could do one where the reader is almost raped, but before anything bad happens Negan, reader’s husband from before everything went to shit, saves her by killing the guy like he killed David

WARNINGS: Strong language, attempted rape, violence, death

NOTE: I do not condone rape or any type of violence. I’m not trying to romanticise serious topics such as rape either, this is only an imagine, nothing more.


“Baby.” Negan’s voice was low, his arms wounding tighter around your waist,“It’s time to get up.”

You whined, holding his hands to your chest and refusing to let go,“I don’t wanna do anything.”

He chuckled and kissed your cheek before gently slipping out of your grasp.

"Babe, you don’t have to do shit but I have a muthafucking Sanctuary to take care of.” Negan’s naked form appeared from under the duvet as he stood up from the bed. His body shone under the rising sun that was peaking through the blinds and the scratches and hickies all over his body reminded you of your adventures the night before. Soon, you heard Negan go into the bathroom. After a few minutes, he finished brushing his teeth and went back to your bedroom.

Begrudgingly, you sat up, holding your blanket to your chest to hide your breasts. Negan crawled on the bed towards you, the smell of the mint collided with your classic case of morning breath. He bent down and kissed your cheek before secretly taking the blanket with him as he stood up. You squealed and tried to get the blanket back, never really caring for your bare body but you were cold.

"Baby, get ready.” Negan ordered when all the laughter died down after you both heard gunshots outside.

I am the one turning to face the faceless hunter in the woods on an abandoned highway. I am the one not running but facing. Because if I am the last one, then I am humanity. And if this is humanity’s last war, then I am the battlefield.

anonymous asked:

Since this story makes it seem that Nissa's shift into GU might be more permanent than we initially thought, we might end up without a mono-green planeswalker. Do you know of any good candidates for the mono-green planeswalker spot? Perhaps a surviving pre-mending walker or post-mending walker who never got a card? Just wondering.

I think it’s more likely that we get a new green planeswalker than have an old one return for the ongoing story (it’d be different if we’re talking a supplemental product). A cleansed/cured Garruk is the most likely candidate for an existing character shifting mono-green, I think.

Basically everyone who mattered pre-mending is dead. Apocalypse and Future Sight did a great job tying up loose ends.

shoutout to meera reed bc i would’ve fuckin ran for my life and left bran with the white walkers but homegirl carried bran through the snow while being chased by the got zombies even if that meant like a .000000000000000001% chance of survival and when the white walkers caught up to them, u know what she did she fucking shielded his body with hers so yep she is underappreciated queen and just wow i need friends like the reeds in my life
