Hey new story! Well not new, this has been my baby for the last month. I got this idea in my head after reading an amazing story (read anything and everything Silvercreekmama has written. That is a direct order.)
As we know from the show, both merle and Daryl were abused by their father. In one way I took this a step farther, in another I obliterated this idea, as you will soon see. A lot of fanfics mention merle having to choose between prison and military, picking military, leaving Daryl. My basic idea is this: what if merle didn't have a choice?
Add a healthy influence of motorcycle clubs (again, Silvercreekmama. Read!) And lots of family feel good moments, and this is it!
The story is in the walking dead timeline between seasons 2 and 3, however Daryl and merle never joined the group at the quarry, so they are not known to the group yet.
Ed did not die at the quarry, rather he took off running when the walkers came and is still out there somewhere. Sophia does not exist…..yet.
Merle and Daryl have a much tighter brother bond then the show. It comes in useful.
Daryl is 26, merle 37.
There is a lot of original characters starting in chapter…3 I think. Lots of OCs, lots of backstory
A few warnings just to get them out of the way: there is blood, torture, murder and a tiny amount of smut in this story. That being said, it's not much and it's a sideways writing there. also my typical weed and potty mouth warnings: there will be both.
