Let’s talk about Beth Greene’s braid for a sec.
Whether it’s a personal touch added by Kinney or a conscious decision on the part of wardrobe, I love that damn braid. Because it’s so indicative of Beth and her views of the new world. That silly, frivolous, useless braid is almost a symbol of her. And not because Beth herself embodies any of those traits - she doesn’t. But even when she’s disheveled, covered in blood and grime, hair curling in wisps of disarray - she still has that damn braid in. Still takes the time to plait those single strands over and over and set it right. Because even though it serves no function, a plain pony tail isn’t enough for her. It’s the same reason Beth’s prison cell had the warmest atmosphere. It’s the same reason she found the work of the embalmer strangely poetic. It’s the same reason she’s able to inspire trust and hope in the meanest, gruffest member of their group. Beth doesn’t just want to survive, she wants to live. And she’s one of the very few survivors who isn’t afraid to let themselves - whether it’s singing, writing, indulging in her first drink, or fixing that damn braid.
I’m freaking out. This is the best bethyl video I’ve seen yet (I think).

I CANT THIS PRON I CANT WHY HOW OMG AAAAAARg
I did a thing, you guys.
’ALONE’ WAS A BETHYL FANGIRL’S WET DREAM.
I highly recommend giving up music snobbery. It makes life 1000% more fun.
THIS. I very much enjoy my Lady Gaga, Britney Spears, Justin Timberlake and Backstreet Boys, and even freaking Nickelback. They have a proud place in my music library, and are often and well enjoyed.
lord grant me the strength to accept the plot lines i cannot change
courage to continue to watch the show
and wisdom to remember i am not a member of the psychotic part of the fandom
I will fear no canon. For Thou art with me. Thy fanfic and thy meta, they comfort me
Forever and ever AO3
*ETA: I don’t actually know if they get separated or not. The following is total speculative bullshit. Everyone’s saying they might be, is all!*
I’ve been thinking a lot about this upcoming episode, “Alone,” and I’ve had a lot of varied thoughts. Some are really knee-jerk, like, “Oh my god! Don’t tear my babies apart!” And others are a bit more analytical, like, “It would probably do some good for the plot to have them briefly separated. It’d do the idea of a romance between them some good to separate them and then bring them right back together. Because a little bit of fear can do a whole helluva lot.” And all this and the following thoughts have been jumbled around in my head for a while now, and I figured I may as well share them.
Now, when I’m not writing or obsessing over TWD, Daryl Dixon, and Beth Greene, I’m a masters student. And my particular specialization is popular women’s fiction… i.e., romance novels. And it hasn’t been too hard to see that much of the development between Daryl and Beth has been ripped from the plot lines of many a damn romance novel.
awwww you are right, the feet! I didn’t notice them before omg aaaaahhh so„„cute
