*I have no taglist but I would happily start one if that’s what ou guys would like?*

“Daddy daddy!” Ava yelled as she ran to Negan where he was conducting a meet in about where they were going to start scavenging next and the types of things they would need to take from the other camps that week.

He grinned and turned towards his little girl, his miracle. Ava was a rambunctious three-year-old, she loved running around and dancing. Every time Negan went out on a run he always looked for dress up clothes, barbies, baby dolls, you name it. Ava was a princess and everyone treated her like one. He picked her up and grinned brushing back her (Y/C/H) and looked into her hazel eyes. “Hi baby girl where’s mommy at?” He chuckled bouncing her on his knee a bit.

“The tickle monster was gunna get me so I ran! Just like you say to do when monsters try and get me, daddy!” She grinned proudly at him. Ever since Ava had been old enough to walk Negan had taught her to run. If she could run she would survive if God forbid he or (Y/N) couldn’t be there to protect her.

That’s the thing I want to make clear about depression: It’s got nothing at all to do with life. In the course of life, there is sadness and pain and sorrow, all of which, in their right time and season, are normal — unpleasant, but normal. Depression is an altogether different zone because it involves a complete absence: absence of affect, absence of feeling, absence of response, absence of interest. The pain you feel in the course of a major clinical depression is an attempt on nature’s part (nature, after all, abhors a vacuum) to fill up the empty space. But for all intents and purposes, the deeply depressed are just the walking, waking dead.
—  Elizabeth Wurtzel - Prozac Nation, 1994

The piercing sound of nearby gunshots from the motel flooded your eardrums and utter fear arose in your every nerve. A few moments later, someone came walking out of the house. Neither you or Norma could make out who it was, but only one person made it out of that house alive.

When he got close enough, you both could see that it was Officer Shelby. Terror and fear stumbled upon Norma’s being when she saw that he made it out, but pain and sorrow followed your expression. Dylan’s dead. The love of your life is dead. You felt like you could just break down and start sobbing. But even though you tried to hold it together, your lip started quivering and your eyes stung from the hot tears pouring out of the brim of your eyes, and you just let it out– you were going to die anyway, why not show some emotion.

But then once Shelby raised his gun, he fell to the ground, revealing who was behind him- Dylan. You didn’t notice of course, too busy grieving.

“(y/n)!” Norma exclaimed. “(y/n), Honey, look up!” she said, lifting your face up. You sniffed as you looked up, vision blurry, but you could make out a picture, and when you did you gasped and jumped up in surprise, fumbling with the car handle, and running into his arms, making an impact as you did. He laughed in relief.

“You alright, (y/n)?” he asked softly. You sniffed, tears still spilling as you let out a few extra sobs of relief.

“I thought you were dead,” you whispered. He let out a small smile of genuine sympathy.

“No, I’m right here,” he whispered back, kissing your temple as he gently rocked you in his arms. “I won’t leave you, ever. I’ll always be here to protect you.”

BBC AMERICA Takeover at NYCC: Friday, October 7 at The Theater at Madison Square Garden

The BBC AMERICA panels on Friday, October 7 will be in a new venue for the convention – The Theater at Madison Square Garden. For the first time ever, NYCC will present panels for its biggest lineup of film and TV programs in this iconic venue. The line-up announced today will include Class, Doctor Who, Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency and The Walking Dead.


BBC AMERICA presents the first ever US panel for new series Class, the Doctor Who spin-off, set in Shoreditch, London.  Four Coal Hill School students who have hidden secrets and desires, navigate a life of friends, parents, school work, sex, sorrow – and possibly the end of existence.

Coal Hill School has been a part of the Doctor Who universe since the very beginning, but that has come at a price. Time travelling over the years has caused the very walls of space and time to become thin. There’s something pressing in on the other side, something waiting for its chance to kill everyone and everything, to bring us all into Shadow. The panel includes stars Greg Austin, Fady Elsayed, Sophie Hopkins and Vivian Oparah. as well as writer and creator Patrick Ness and executive producer Brian Minchin (Doctor Who, Torchwood). BBCA’s Class is a BBC Cymru Wales production for BBC Three and a BBC AMERICA and BBC Worldwide co-production.


BBC AMERICA’s Doctor Who star Peter Capaldi will make his New York Comic Con debut along with the first ever fan appearance by new co-star Pearl Mackie, who joins the series as Bill, the Doctor’s new companion. When Pearl joined the cast, Emmy-winning lead writer and executive producer Steven Moffat teased “a new voyage is about to begin” and “this is where the story really starts.” Fans will get a sneak peek of what’s ahead including the upcoming Christmas Special this December on BBC AMERICA and hints on what’s in store for Steven Moffat’s final season as showrunner. The panel includes stars Peter Capaldi (The Thick of It) and Pearl Mackie (The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night Time), as well as Steven Moffat (Sherlock) and executive producer Brian Minchin (Class, Torchwood). Doctor Who is a BBC Cymru Wales production for BBC One and a BBC AMERICA co-production.


BBC AMERICA presents the world premiere screening and Q&A for its next original series Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency, ahead of its broadcast premiere on October 22. From the studio that brought you The Walking Dead, BBC AMERICA’s Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency is an adaptation of the novels from Douglas Adams (Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, Doctor Who).

When the bizarre murder of a millionaire thrusts loner Todd (Elijah Wood), into the orbit of Dirk Gently (Samuel Barnett) – an eccentric detective who believes they’re destined to solve the murder-mystery together – his life will never be the same. They’ll cross unlikely paths with a bevy of wild and dangerous characters, each episode landing them a few random steps closer to uncovering the truth. Writer and executive producer Max Landis (Chronicle, American Ultra) and showrunner Robert Cooper (Stargate Atlantis, Stargate Universe) will join stars Samuel Barnett (Penny Dreadful), Hannah Marks (The Amazing Spiderman), Jade Eshete (Dead Beat), Mpho Koaho (Falling Skies) and Fiona Dourif  (Manhattan) for a panel following the exclusive sneak peek screening. BBCA’s Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency is a co-production of AMC Studios, IDEATE MEDIA and IDW Entertainment with Circle of Confusion producing.

Carol Appreciation Week: Day 6 - Favorite Scene/Moment

3x15, “This Sorrowful Life”

Merle: (mumbles) Ain’t no way.
Carol: What?
Merle: Nothin’.
Carol: What happened here?
Merle: We got any whiskey? Hell, I’d even drink vodka.
Carol: No, Merle.
Merle: (laughs)
Carol: You with us?
Merle: Sure.
Carol: Not talking about occupying the same space. Are you with us?
Merle: I’m here for my brother.
Carol: Well, he’s here for us. It’s not time to do shots. It’s time to pick a damn side.
Merle: (huffs) You ain’t like you was back in the camp – li’l mouse runnin’ around, scared of her own shadow.
Carol: Wasn’t my shadow, it was my husband’s.
Merle: Well, you don’t seem scared of nothin’ anymore.
Carol: I’m not.
Merle: You’re a late bloomer.
Carol: Maybe you are, too.

When Carol tells Merle that he may be a late bloomer, too: I think that this is the seed that ultimately creates the opening that causes Merle to change. But first, I think the possibility makes Merle consider something else: maybe his erratic and unpredictable behavior (“I’m a damn mystery to me.”) can be used FOR something purposeful and not simply as a mechanism of chaos. 

What Carol first does in this scene is hold a mirror up to Merle. She says, “Look, asshole, we are facing some serious shit. Stop sitting in the bleachers and throwing spit balls. If you want to help your brother then HELP.” Then, once she’s made her point she performs an act of amazing compassion - more compassion I’d argue than we even saw from Daryl. She suggests to Merle the course of action he eventually takes - she suggests he might have within him the capacity for redemption. (Nobody will ever convince me that Michonne merely “talked Merle out” of turning her over to th'guv'na. It was the seed Carol planted that Michonne grew.)
