Caryl: Welcome Back by Sakura-Akira Caryl: Welcome Back by Sakura-Akira

"Thanks for comin' back." She whispered, pulling away from his cheek.
"9 lives, remember?" Was his only reply.


So... Once upon a time, I was really sick, and in my illness I sat at home and drew some Caryl fanart. Though the nausea hasn't gone away, I'm really rather pleased with this and my poor, shipper heart feels a little bit better now.

Spoilers:

I imagined this to be after the events of 3.08, when Daryl makes it back to the prison from Woodbury. Carol's just happy to have him back.

Characters and concept of The Walking Dead do not belong the me - they belong to the original creators of the comic, AMC, and Frank Darabont.

Am I the only one that thinks the shipping should be called Darcar(Like Daycare but awesome.)

Haha that's like me and thinking the Carol x Axel ship should be called Axol, instead of Caxel. I think Darcar is totally cute.

Awwww, wonderful! Like others have said here, I don't think we'll get that, but they are shown to have a conversation alone. He was right when he said Carol would understand. Goes to show how much they're in sync. :)

Haha, oh no. I'm actually doubtful that Caryl will happen - especially after the Axel drama. That being said, I'm still a Caryl shipper, but I just don't trust the writers enough not to screw it up... so I'm not going to let my hopes go anywhere. *sigh*

Gorgeous drawing; I love the use of greyscale to really amp up the emotion. I love the whole presence of them too - how he's still wary enough not to touch her, but comfortable enough to lean in and let her touch him.
Their relationship is so dang beautiful, seriously - just makes me hold my breath sometimes. ; u ;
While I would absolutely love to see this happen upon his return, I doubt we'll get that much body contact. Honestly though, just some meaningful words and maybe a shoulder pat or something would still be more than enough, considering what those things would mean to them.

Thank you so much - I love in-depth comments like this because it gives me a lot to think about.

Part of the reason I love these two is because so much of their relationship is push-and-pull. I'm just wondering when they'll both try the same thing... only then, I think, will we get something tangible in terms of romance. I adore them though, platonic or not. Apparently there's going to be a lot of struggle with Daryl getting back so I'm hoping they'll give us a brief moment alone with the two of them instead of it all being a big group thing.

Sigh.

Oh gosh, I couldn't agree more and I'd love to see some more scenes with just the two of them in the coming episodes. In fact, Norman has hinted to having done some private scenes with Melissa, so we just might get that. (Goodness, I also think it's his birthday today, isn't it?? I should bake him a cake, photograph it, send it to him - then eat it all. ALL. =n= )

I think it makes a hell of a lot of sense for Daryl's return to be fraught with difficulty, that's fine - I know he can handle it. But writers be damned if they're going to ignore any kind of meaningful moments between he and Carol when he finally does get back. There's just no excuse for that, no matter what terms people see them on. All opinions and discussion aside, those two mean something to each other. That is certainly there. In the dangerous world they now live in, the endurance of life is so tenuous, literally always by a thread - neglecting the moments to show folks that you indeed care for them in this kind of desperation is just not reasonable. Especially following this intense an incident.

Plus my bleeding Caryl heart just needs to see it. ; n ;

What are they doing to us fans, eh? Do you follow either of them on twitter? There has been some pretty hilarious picture posting going on from both.

I'm really hoping we get something sweet between them. It's going to be super hard with Merle and everything, but man... they need their love.

I don't actually know how to use twitter - which, just by having said that, I'm positive has aged me ten years. However, I do see all of their twitter silliness by proxy on Tumblr...a place that I also don't actually have an account for, though I want one, I just admittedly don't really know how to use that site very well either. =n=

I could not agree more with you though. I mean at least a hug; that couldn't possibly be asking that much, is it?

Haha well, if you have the interest, I can most definitely teach you. Tumblr is a lot easier to get around on, I feel. Twitter I still use mostly just to get in contact with my friends since I live in a place with zero cellphone service -- it just so happens that keeping tabs on celebrities you like is far easier on twitter.

And I know he does - he's a fan favourite, they're not going to leave him there. But I can't wait.. February feels like far too long! Although I'm hoping they'll give us some kind of good Caryl moment...Sigh.
