This was supposed to be a one-shot, but it turned into a 4-parter, which is why I gave it its own book instead of including it with the other one-shots.
This was mostly inspired by TWD Season 7 episode 1 (Negan's victims), Season 7 episode 10 (the Caryl reunion), and Richonne in general, but all of Season 7 has really been a major influence.
I do not own TWD or any of the characters affiliated with the show, just my own ideas.
Maybe I'll make this an actual fic one day, like, with a prequel about where this particular main character came from or whatever. She has no official name. There will be a bit of history here already.
The main character's thoughts and some words Merle emphasizes will be in italics.
Merle's little nicknames he uses for everyone (and everything) will be capitalized.
