Her Dixons by HaloHunter89 reviews
A multi-shot I was prompted for about the Dixon brothers and Carol. Nothing redeeming about this. Rated VERY M. Takes place around the beginning of season 4. My Merle survived the governor and has both his hands. I'll write for this as inspiration strikes, updates can have good amount of time between them sometimes.

Deep Down In The Hollow Ground by Ravenesque2 reviews
No one is quite sure how much time has passed since the fall of the prison. All they know is the reality of always moving on, always surviving, whatever cost it might bring. At least they mostly found each other, but for those they've lost along the way, there is a chasm that can barely be filled. Caryl story.

Spark by Tinkerbell99 reviews
"Pretty hot," she mused with a teasing grin. Carol shielded her eyes and innocently surveyed the sun rising high overhead. She didn't miss, though, the way his face reddened just a little too much to blame on the heat. (S3 Caryl)

Of A Certain Age by the ramblin rose reviews
Caryl (primarily) AU. In your 20's you're still growing up, in your 30's your an adult, but no one explains to you exactly what it means when you cross over to being "of a certain age" and you still feel just the same as you did before. Some would say that the excitement of your life is over, but really it's just beginning. M for language, sexual content, etc.

Incarcerated by HaloHunter89 reviews
Turning he took in the space he would inhabit for the next year. It was desolate and cold.

He already missed the smell of the woods and the clean earthen air that came with it.

The Cadet and the Silver Fox by subversivegrrl reviews
Prompt from selbyzipper on Tumblr - "Tara making the same wrong assumption that Axel did?

True Friendship by Elle Gardner reviews
It started w/ a supply run and a little stress relief. It grew into something more. This is where you figure out who your friends are. Friendships change more when Carol gets into the mix of things. She's just their kind of girl. This story contains slash, if it is not your thing, then just move along. Ch 1 is T, Chs 2 are M... well it all just gets dirtier as the story goes on.

Directly following "The Grove" (S4E14). I hesitate to call this story "Caryl", but I suppose it could be perceived that way. My take on what happens when the two former confidantes meet again, after both losing so much. Carol's POV. Short, multi-chapter fic.
