I am totally loving The Walking Dead and Daryl's guns! (His arms, baby! Now that man's sex on legs.)

A Chance to Grow FINALLY UPDATED! Yeah, baby! I plotted out the final chapters and am working on Chapter Twenty now. Once it's complete I will thoroughly edit it and add scenes and I'm thinking about a bonus chapter.

Reviews are always appreciated and lift my spirits tremendously. It's something to brighten my day so if you can, please give a little review:) Thank you for sticking with me!

Persephone's Fall by Kinbari reviews
To his irritation, he couldn't stop thinking about the girl's insolent face. The defiance in her eyes when she'd pushed back against his abilities haunted him.

Lessons Learned by Next to Something reviews
The Finalizer was massive, unfathomable. So awesomely huge that it was really completely ridiculous that he was able to find her. But find her he did, and as she snipped the wire that controlled the dozen doors on this hallway, she miscalculated on two things: that this particular room had a second exit, and that she was alone in it. ((Just an excuse for keep the mask on!smut.))

The Natural Order by SouthSideStory reviews
Rey's plan is simple. She'll learn from Kylo Ren, and she'll do what has to be done to gain his trust, until she gets what she needs from him: information on her family. Who her parents are, whether they're alive or dead, and where to find them. Then she'll leave. How, exactly, Rey isn't certain, but she has time to figure that out.

Hunger by SouthSideStory reviews
True need hurts in the pit of your stomach, a hollowness begging to be filled. Rey remembers that feeling as well as her own name, because hunger was her constant companion for fifteen years, the closest thing to a friend that she knew. (Reylo. Trigger warning for disordered eating.)
