The Ghost and Mrs Peletier
by BLuIcy reviews
She had finally started to accept her place in life as punishment for some sin she must have committed when the dreams had started. She never remembered much from them, just flashes here and there of the mountains and beautiful white flowers. She would wake from these dreams and still be able to smell the fresh cool air, pine and oddly enough - leather.

"Wonder what Daryl would think." Carol jolted then, the name unexpected in her ears. She looked down at the blonde who smiled up at her, knowingly. "Why would Daryl care?" (Winner of "Best Nickname" in the 4theloveofCARYL Writing Contest. THANK YOU to everyone who voted. It is such an honor!)

Surrendering To The Wind
by HaloHunter89 reviews
One thing you learn when you only have yourself to depend on is that you only trust what you see, hear, and feel. Somewhere in there though, you gotta start living. This is a AU. Sorry no zombies. The main focus will be Caryl. But other character involvement should be expected. [Being revised]

Lightning Only Strikes Once
by the ramblin rose reviews
Picks up after Season 2 and looks at the relationship between Daryl and Carol as the group struggles to make a life in the world of the undead. It's an eventual Caryl fic.

What the Hell is Wrong With Me?
by rabbitheartedgirl88 reviews
Daryl Dixon hated hospitals. He hated the way they smelled. He hated the bright fluorescent lights. He hated those stupid gowns they put you in. He hated all the sick people wandering around. But mostly he hated the way those doctors and nurses looked at him, like he was just another trashy, redneck junkie trying to score a prescription for Oxy. AU, no zombies

Dog Days of Summer
by Caryl2013 reviews
This is a Caryl AU fic. This tells the story of how Carol and Daryl could have met and therefore fallen in love. There will be other characters from the show involved and there will be smut in later chapters, but I'm going ahead and rating it 'M' now. I own nothing from The Walking Dead. Carol/Daryl romance, so don't read if it bothers you. Thanks!

This is a very AU story that takes place with no apocalypse. Daryl moves to the small town of Sweet Junction with his brother in an attempt to start fresh, when he gets there, though, he never expects the turn that his life is going to take. Many characters from the show as well as OCs. It will eventually have Caryl as the primary relationship. Merle/Andrea as well.

Distance makes the heart grow fonder. It was true, even though that hadn't been his intentions. This is pretty much just a season 4 wish I suppose. You never know! Stranger things have happened! In case you didn't know, this is a Caryl fic. If you don't like the pairing then skip this story!

Something They Never Thought They'd Find
by Helen Young reviews
During a walker apocalypse there are few happy times and even fewer people to look to. However, Daryl and Carol seemed to have found themselves with both things. They look to each other for comfort, trust, and loyalty. Maybe even something a bit more than friendship could spark, however. Caryl/Darol Rating T for Dixon-tongue. Please enjoy and review.
