Hours
*~*
He’s sure he’s dreaming. Same as it always is, in the hours since she’s been gone. Hours that stretch on into larger blocks of time he can’t even consider. He has been here before, those rare times he’s given in and slept in this bed. She ain’t ever far from his mind but she’s closest at night. Closer, when he relaxes enough to fall into the sort of deep sleep that lets her in. When everything’s quiet in the wee hours of morning before he wakes, before reality crashes in to fill his days with an emptiness that tastes of gunpowder and ashes—that’s when he feels her the most.

Even asleep, he knows the danger in this, in indulging the fantasy because it’s only going to make the truth sting that much more when he wakes. Make it burn that much deeper. But he digs into it anyway, presses his face into the back of her warm neck. Pulls her body closer, feels the steady beat of her heart beneath his palm, and wonders if it would have been like this. If they would have fit like this, two pieces of a puzzle here in the place where reality don’t reach, if they only had the time to find out. She feels so fucking good he can’t bear to open his eyes and face the truth that awaits him.

Title: Covert Ops
Author: Abelina/Abby/Abelinajt
Fandom/Pairing: The Walking Dead - Beth Greene/Daryl Dixon (Bethyl)
Warnings: Sexual situations, including a bit of semi-public sexual acts. Also a somewhat out of character Maggie used as a plot device (even if the plot's a little thin). 
Rating: NC-17/E
Summary: It's good to be back with Team Family, and Beth and Daryl know it's only a matter of time before their secret is out. They'd really like Maggie to get the hint though. (Yet another alternate timeline in which Beth and Daryl never got separated, only to reunite with Team Family at an undetermined future point where canon may or may not apply). 
Covert Ops

From the moment Beth and Daryl find the group, Maggie barely allows her a single minute to herself. Beth gets it, she does. She saw the signs with only Glenn's name on them and she sees the flicker in Maggie’s eyes sometimes, a little flash that Maggie tries to hide behind the happiness and the big sister fussiness that’s now reached epic proportions. Maggie feels guilty. Beth has been told an awful lot about how good a person she is, and maybe that’s true sometimes. But Beth’s also not above letting Maggie suffer the guilt for a while, even if Beth is so deeply, painfully grateful to have found her again.

She wouldn’t really mind Maggie’s attention all that much if it wasn’t constant. It’s stifling, especially since she can’t even take a piss in the woods without Maggie knowing about it.  Reminding her sister that she’s not a baby, that she managed not to die during the months she spent without Maggie constantly looking over her shoulders usually buys her a few minutes of breathing room—and it’s those minutes where the not so good side of Beth secretly enjoys tugging on Maggie’s guilty conscience—but all too soon her Maggie-shaped shadow is back and all Beth can do is meet Daryl’s eyes and share his frustrations.

Honestly, how Maggie hasn’t noticed is beyond Beth. They’re being so obvious about it, but Maggie’s got her baby-Beth blinders on and doesn’t see. Nobody sees yet, a week in, but with the way Maggie won’t leave Beth alone, one would think she might have figured it out by now. But no, Maggie’s too busy looking for Beth first thing in the morning to notice whose arms she’s lying in, too busy making sure Beth is warm enough to notice whose shirt she’s put on over hers, too busy checking that Beth isn’t alone when they’re walking through the woods to notice who she’s walking beside. She catches them in all sorts of telling little moments and misses every one of them.

Title: Two Halves
Fandom/Pairing: The Walking Dead, Beth Greene/Daryl Dixon (Bethyl)
Rating: General
Summary: Maggie Greene doesn't always notice things, but she notices this. When Beth and Daryl are reunited with Team Family, five months after the prison fell, they've changed. And Maggie wants to know why. (Told from Maggie's point of view as she watches Beth and Daryl upon their return - some sort of alternate timeline where Beth never got kidnapped and canon is not necessarily followed)
Two Halves

Maggie doesn't see much, that first night after Beth and Daryl find their camp completely by accident. The two of them appear out of nowhere, five months after the prison fell, arriving in their midst just before sunset—dirty and wild-looking but alive. Beth is alive, and Maggie is far too emotional to notice much of anything, between her elation at getting her baby sister back and her guilt over giving up on her so easily. So she holds Beth tight and doesn't let go, and that's the only thing that matters.

Title: Wild Things (The Moonshine Poet)
Author: Abelina/Abby/Abelinajt
Fandom/Pairing: The Walking Dead – Beth Greene/Daryl Dixon (Bethyl)
Rating/Warnings: M/E for sexual content, language, violence.
Summary: The night they burned the shack to the ground, Daryl Dixon has a revelation. Now they’re running through the night together like a pair of wild things, and when Beth Greene takes his hand, he realizes he never wants to let go. He wasn’t sure where they were goin’, but for the first time since the prison fell, he felt like they were moving forward, heading for something instead of just tryin’ to survive. And that, he knew, was entirely because of Beth Greene. An alternate timeline following the events of Still.
Notes:
This was written as a very long one-shot, clearly too long for LJ so I've broken into three pieces for posting, but it's meant to be read as one long fic, not concise individual chapters.
All Parts Here



They were kinda like idiots over the next few weeks, the sort of clingy lovebirds he’d’a laughed at once upon a time, except he got it now. But Daryl didn’t think they really understood what it was like to find your other half, those morons back when the dead didn’t walk, when the most trouble they were gonna have was over not gettin’ extra sauce on their burger.

So he figured they kinda had the right to be obnoxious, especially since nobody else was around to be bothered by it. And truth be told, he liked the feel of her fingers in his, liked the way she giggled and how she made him grin like a fuckin’ lunatic. Really, he just fucking loved her and he let that out in whatever way it wanted to shine.

The next few weeks were some of the hottest he’d ever experienced, the height of the Georgian summer punishing them with cloudless skies and endless, stifling heat. Beth declared that the two of them looked like a couple of filthy drowned dogs, dripping with sweat from the horrible humidity, grimy from travelling and walkers and the rabbits they’d skinned last night for supper. So when they came across the river and the waterfall with the wide, deep pool below it, Daryl didn’t even attempt to dissuade Beth’s enthusiasm.


“Let’s go swimming!”
