TAKE ME DOWN to the FIGHTING END UPDATE:

02/12/14: I'm still recovering from the mid season finale, but damn if it didn't push me back to writing. It's a slow process I know and I know I keep apologizing. I would like to thank those that are still waiting for an update, you guys are very loyal and should award yourselves with a pat on a back because I acknowledge that as true dedication. As for the chapter, it is about 70% done. The difficult part about writing this story is that I do have to be in a Walking Dead stupor, which means rewatching episodes over and over and delving in the behaviors of all the characters so that I don't mess anything up. And that is literally the hardest part. I can't rush this guys, if I do this story is gonna turn into shit, excuse my language. So hang in there and I promise it you will get an update!

09/10/14: Hello everyone. Yes I'm back. And you're probably wondering where the heck I've been :P Sorry guys, I've been so busy with things on my end that writing for this story has lost priority in the last few months. Because of that, I feel bad for letting this update go on for so long. I needed a pick me up, something to get my fingers running on the keys again, and I'm really hoping Season 5 will be just that. This is just a notice for those who even pay attention to these updates that I'm still here and I haven't given up on this story! Thank you.

22/07/14: Hi guys! I know I know, its been a very long update. I'm working on the chapter as I write this. It's really difficult one so bare with me. It's really hard to get my creative juices flowing when I don't write as often as I use to. Writing this story use to be my stress relief from school. Now that school is over I've been pretty much doing everything that I wasn't able to before i.e. have fun. It's coming together as fast as I can possibly make it.

09/06/14: Ello ello! So just a quick heads up. Chapter 38 is developing rather slow. I've been slacking and kinda been out and about the last month or so plus working a lot that I haven't had time to sit down and write. Plus it's so hard when I don't have new episodes to keep me motivated. I've been adding to the chapter as much as I can without making it stale and I apologize for those that may be getting impatient (I did after all end it in a massive cliffhanger). I'm working on it guys!


I am a 22 year old student attending my 4th and final year at Sheridan College. I’m studying for a bachelor degree in Illustration and am aspiring to become a visual conceptual artist for video games. When I’m not sleep deprived and buried in deadlines I like to write! It has always been a nice alternative to expressing my imagination through words rather than through pictures. I have written a few original works of fiction along with other fanfictions for such franchises like Resident Evil and Devil May Cry. I read as much as I can for both inspiration and just to get away from reality. My favourite genres include thrillers, romance and action.

I am also a HUGE zombie fanatic, have always been. George A Romero has been my hero since I was little and Resident Evil has been my favourite video game series (not the movies, they are God awful). I remember picking up The Walking Dead comics on occasion and putting them back. Too be honest I wasn’t allured by the art and the black and white turned me off. I’m an artist, what can I say? I’m picky as hell. But when I heard that The Walking Dead would be coming on screen, I watched it from the very beginning. Hands down it has been my favourite show ever since and I finally picked up the comic and immediately got caught up. I have also read The Walking Dead novels, because let’s be honest here, it is very hard to find good zombie-esque fiction.

Because of this, I decided to write my own fanfic of the Walking Dead. I grew a liking for Daryl Dixon. I’ve always been drawn toward the ‘bad’ characters that end up redeeming themselves. The damaged characters are my weakness and I wanted to explore my interpretation on what a romance with Daryl would be like. Plus, all the characters of the Walking Dead universe are just so much fun to write for and I do my best to research thoroughly through the episodes and interviews to get everything as accurate as possible. I do my best and I hope it shows!

    A funeral home is not a normal place to meet a girl, but when the guys went to visit Skeeter, Juice met her. A girl with a strange job and an interesting past. Yes, the summary sucks. The story is better.

    Take Me Down to the Fighting End reviews
    "I don't care about the scars, Daryl. I want the man underneath them." Daryl didn't get it. He still didn't understand why she was trying as hard as she was to make things work between them. This whole feeling of being needed by someone else was still new to him, but Daryl was beginning to absorb it as if it was something he was always missing and only ever wanted. Daryl/OC
