Rickyl in The Walking Dead Season 5 trailer
NOT WRITTEN BY ME. AN ANON WROTE THIS FIC AND I WAS IRRITATED THAT IT DIDN’T SHOW UP IN THE RICKYL TAG, SO I’M REPOSTING IT AS A TEXT POST BECAUSE IT IS SERIOUSLY ONE OF THE BEST THINGS I’VE EVER READ. ♥Daryl’s hair, when Rick first meets him, is an ashy blond; it fades over the winter into an eye-catching red by the time they find the prison. It darkens again into an unremarkable brown, barely catching on his shirt collar and covering his eyes when Rick last sees him at the prison.By the time they reach Terminus, his hair is long enough that the jackasses there can grab a fistful of it, use it to wrench Daryl’s head back, use it to control him. Rick’s never once laid a hand on his people, his authority comes from sheer force of will—and Daryl’s always been the first to fall in line—and Rick can see what such hands-on control does to him, a vivid reliving of darker days.
