Beautiful! I love how the darkness is a character in this story. You get into Daryl's head very well-his perspective and feelings are very in character. Great story-thank you!

This was just poetically beautiful. The turmoil inside him over Carol is just so perfect. While he wants her there, its that constant battle he wages with himself to actually let people near him. And the self-realization that she's slowly wormed her way into his heart was spot-on Daryl.
But my favorite part was when he woke to her sleeping behind him, and how acutely aware he was of her just there, but not quite touching. Because I imagine that's how he is with her in every moment. He's aware of her every move, whether he's willing to admit it or not, and how he is drawn to her. How they're drawn to each other. These two broken souls that have been with each other through so much.
This was wonderful.

Hey, it's been a while since I have been here. I was never too fond of the possible Carol and Daryl relationship. However, this was a really good depiction of how I imagine it would happen if it came right down to it. Very good job.

Wow. This was amazing, a really good insight into two incredibly broken, and damaged people. Awesome work with it.

This was great! I hope you write more Caryl fics. :)
Just one little thing that I have to point out...Carol didn't joke about checking him out. When he said, "I'll go down first," and she said, "Even better!" she wasn't talking about checking him out. She was talking about, um, oral sex. :p At least, that's how I'm pretty sure that scene was meant ("going down"oral).

Oops, I forgot to read and review this. Please do forgive me!
I'll say (honestly, mind you... of course) that I love every word of it.
Actually, I'm kind of glad I forgot about it because it meant I didn't read it until after Daryl found/rescued Carol and they had some super sweet scenes together. It made it all the more meaningful, you know. That he would be so... shy and reserved about it in a scene after episode 2 and then to move to how devastated he was when he thought she was dead and how he treated her after he found her. Reading this again now made it come full circle even more, I think.
I don't think it, I know it.
You should write more Caryl. Please!

I love this. All of the internal thinking proves that Daryl is not an idiot just because he isn't a man of many words. It's funny to see nervous, too :)

I really enjoyed this entire piece! I love how tentative they are with each other, but there's this underlying thread of understanding between them. They really just get each other.
This part in particular really moved me: "It not only surprises him that she moved, seemingly seeking comfort in his sleeping form, but that she did it without waking him. No part of her is touching him, no hand against his side or curled into the folds of his shirt, yet in the inky blackness that surrounds them, she is the only thing he feels." Just gorgeous!
Finally, it's a terrific touch to return to the theme of him asking for the information he needs. I know I'll be reading this piece again and I hope that you'll consider writing more for this pairing.

Lovely - great work on linking the massage and teasing while maintaining his awkwardness.
| Greyhoundgirl 11/19/12 . chapter 1
What an awesome story! I think you completely captured the essence of both of the characters, and it was so well written! I really hope you write more TWD fiction, especially Daryl/Carol pairing stories. I think they were made for each other Keep up the great work!

Aww that was beautiful :)

Oh the wonderful beauty that is awkward Daryl! I loved the realistic feel of this, and both Daryl and Carol were very in character to me. Loved him offering her another massage .
Great job! :D

I don't think you know how happy you made me when I saw that you had a new story. Then, I see that it's a Carol and Daryl pairing... I may have screamed a bit. Gosh this one shot was everything I ever wanted. After yesterday episode I'm just a mess of emotions... I can't. Where to start?
Yo gotta love Daryl. He is that tough, badass dude who kinda have a soft side of him. The cute part is, Carol totally brings that soft part of him. My shipper heart can't take it at this point. I love that you mentioned Ed. To be honest, I forgot about him (with good reason).
That scene where Carol couldn't sleep and went to Daryl was both sweet and a little sad. Those two clearly have their issues but WHO could judge them? They are survivors. Seriously this one shot was fucking awesome. I loved it and i hope it's not your last one with those two * wink wink*.

That was fantastic. I am currently sad that it ended. Please consider writing more!
