you are a hardcore caryler. and i love that about you.
I will absolutely go down with this ship!
In fact, I shipped them hardcore before I ever heard the word “shipping” because this is a relationship based on mutual trust, respect, and honesty. They see and treat each other as equals, and just like Carol would never look down on Daryl for who he used to be and for staying with Merle once the two of them were alone, Daryl would never look down on Carol for staying with Ed despite all the things he did to her (and might later have done to Sophia as hinted at by Carol while Sophia was missing). They have been supporting and helping each other since the start, and while Daryl didn’t always behave the way he should have, he also saw when he was in the wrong, and apologized for it. Each of them prioritizes the well-being and safety of the other above their own, and they always trust each other’s judgement. They give each other closeness and comfort, which they have both learned to accept from each other, but also “processing time” and space when needed because they get each other like nobody else does.
I can’t wait for them to acknowledge their feelings for each other and grasp what happiness they can together!
Caryl on! ❤️
