My Guardian


In a world where hope is hard to come by, Daryl Dixon finds his light at the end of the tunnel in Beth Greene. This story is for all Bethyl and Deth Shippers, who are fans of the pairing of Daryl Dixon and Beth Greene.

As Daryl rises to the occasion and becomes a leader at the prison, his connection with Beth grows from friends to something much more. It captures the naive innocence of Beth who is now coming into her own as a woman finally, and our favorite crossbow carrying redneck, Daryl Dixon; who will finally learn what it means to be in love. To need somebody wholly and completely with all your body and soul.

Because "Once Daryl Dixon falls in love ... it is forever" ~ Norman Reedus

Note: “My Guardian” is the companion fanfic to "Maggie's Nightmare," which is a much darker and twisted story that catches up with the group at the prison about 9 months after the attack on the prison. Includes Glenn, Maggie, The Governor, Daryl, Beth and a few OC's. So, you can all expect that Daryl and Beth will have obstacles and struggle to be together in a world where The Governor is completely demented and ready to exact his revenge on our favorite characters of TWD.

Ok, now that I'm awake reading it, I can actually commemt properly haha!!
1- I didn't read Maggies nightmare yet but I dont think Beth is pregnant, a bit early into their romance to announce that! But then again it can easily happen lol but I dont think she is!
2-i like the mansion idea, a chance for them to let themselves fo without fear of being caught, and drinking together let them let their guard down with each other which I loved!
3- I like your version of "I never", I like that you said Daryl had a threesome, some people have it in their heads that Daryl is a saint, forgetting about his past! He may not be proud of it but Merle was his brother!! So I think it's totally believable that he did!
4- yes hooray for lemons!! :D I like that you went for a more lustful scene, especially when drunk it happens and its awesome!!
keep up the good work, roll on next chapter!! Xx

@My Dead Dahlia
I agree with all of your reasoning behind it. I liked it, I thought it fit. Particularly, that he was not necessarily proud of it. As other men would be. As Norman Reedus had said, "Daryl is more Alanon than AA. He doesn't like where he came from".

I was soooooooooooo happy when I checked my email and I saw you had uploaded!! :DDDDD
If Beth is pregnant it would be soooo sad. I mean, it's the end of the world, chances of surviving are little... Anyways she's with Daryl <3 the last man standing hehehe

Upload soon, please!! This is the best Daryl fic ever!!!

Can't wait to read : )

GoBethyl! GoBethyl!

Hi @TeamBethyl

Thanks so much for reading and for commenting ... I really appreciate it :)

Yes, this chapter was certainly steamy. I have some readers that like it when it is more awkward and romantic – like two virgins exploring each other. And, then I’ve had a bunch of readers that have asked for me to spice it up a bit. So, that’s how this chapter was born. So, that all being said - It was definitely occ for Daryl to have had a threesome and I'd love to share with you my reasoning for putting it in the back story that I’ve added to his character ; )

Norman Reedus/Daryl Dixon on sex …

I know Norman has mentioned he plays Daryl like a virgin, so sex would be awkward for him. He wouldn’t be the aggressor; he wouldn’t know what to do or what to say. He’s also mentioned something like that Daryl is more likely to prematurely ejaculate, cry about it and then deny it ever happened.

Although he’s playing him like a virgin, we can assume that Daryl Dixon is not a 38+ year old virgin (even though he's 46 in real life). Either way, he's older and we can assume he actually has had sex before. We can assume he’s probably never been in love, never made love and when he did have sex it would have been drunk and/or possibly on drugs.

In “Still” he talked about how he followed Merle around, he was nothing; he was nobody. Merle was charismatic, we know he not only used but presumably sold drugs (meth), and they spent many days drunk all day (In episode “Us,” he tells Joe “I haven’t been lit at dawn since before everything fell apart”), so we also know that Daryl and Merle spent many mornings/days/nights drunk as a skunk – probably making all kinds of bad decisions. (Also, in the episode "Still" we learn about one such bad decision that almost got Daryl shot and killed because Merle got into a fight with a meth junkie, Daryl jumped in and beat the shot out of the guy and the guy had a gun and almost killed him. Just another day for the Dixon brothers pre-apocalypse). There’s a lot I took from some of these moments to get a sense of what life was like for Daryl with Merle, with the drugs, with the alcohol, and with women.

So, I imagine that Merle definitely didn’t have any trouble getting women into bed with him. We know that he participated in relatively risky sex (In episode “Bloodletting” Daryl had a bunch of Merle’s old antibiotics that he gave to T-Dog for his rising fever and infection. Daryl mentions that they were left over because Merle “got the clap on occasion.”) So, Merle got around. And, I’m guessing that Merle was behind any women coming back to the house with the Dixon brothers and Daryl probably got whichever one Merle wasn’t having sex with. So, Daryl had sex, it was just most likely drunken sex with some (shall I call them, skanks?) from the bar or from wherever else Merle picked up his women.

So, how’d I go from Daryl having drunken sex with one woman to two? Pretty easily ;) If Merle was doing drugs/selling drugs, this often comes with “hanger-ons” … chicks that will hang out and "party" with the drug dealer. Some of these women will definitely have sex with them in exchange for drugs, etc. So, I just imagined that Merle & Daryl had a bit of a redneck, white trash, drug dealer type set up for their home and instead of it being a skank from the bar – perhaps that night it junkie chicks hanging out at their house. And, if there was a group of gals at the house … it goes from one skank in the bed to two.

Or, I imagine Merle being drunk or high and asking the women to both have sex with Daryl. If they’re junkies ... they’d have sex with whoever wherever if it meant them getting what they wanted from their dealer (Merle). In this imaginary scenario of mine, Daryl would have never been the instigator for a threesome … it would have always been due to Merle’s involvement – someway, somehow. Whether it was drugs or liquor, Merle had a lot of influence over Daryl and if he wanted to “show his little brother a good time” … Daryl would have followed along and done it.

Daryl acting like a man, when it comes to sex …
Also, Norman is playing him like a virgin (although he’s obviously not); however, we also know that Daryl is a man that used to drink, do drugs, hang out with neo-nazis/white supremacists, etc. Daryl wasn’t an angel and he was a follower. Norman also said this at SD Comic Con 2013 referring to if Daryl is ever going to have sex: "And if we're gonna do it, I hope someone is biting the back of someone's neck.” So, I think in general, if he actually does get into any relationship on the show and him and Beth (or whoever he has sex with) that at first it will be awkward, it will have more of an innocent or immature feel, but eventually Daryl would be a man about the whole thing ;)

So, anyways, short story long, but I wanted to at least let you know where it came from, so hopefully it makes more sense in the context of this story ;) And, when it comes right down to it, I thought it would be fun for Beth to get a little jealous. Past sexual partners or experiences can be a really touchy subject for couples and since Beth doesn't have any - I gave some to Daryl so that Beth could experience some of the jealousy (on a much smaller scale) that Daryl's been experiencing with Nick's constant attention on Beth back at the prison.

By the way, I just wanted to say that I love it when people have questions about things, and I love being able to shed light as to why I put something into the story the way I did because I do spend a lot of time planning this out, so thank you for bringing it up!! I hope it explained Daryl’s out-of-character threesome from his past :-P

Thanks again for commenting and for the question! If you ever have any other questions or things you'd like explained, please let me know :))
