Stale M&M's

Summary

If you're homophobic you may not belong here. But if not, then welcome to this fanfiction :)

Author/story information note before you begin:

1. This is the first story in this series. (there will be more)

2. Stale M&M's follows the show's arc, and the only non-cannon things are Oliver's addition, his actions and consequences, and a few time-stretches here and there.

3. This story is the result of the question, "What would happen if a kid came out of the closet in the middle of the apocalypse?" It took me a long time to put this character into a story I liked and wouldn't give up on right away, (thank you TWD fandom for being so awesome) and an even longer time to put fingers to keyboard.

4. This isn't meant to be a cliché; THERE WILL BE SOME, DON'T GET ME WRONG, I AM A FLAWED HUMAN BEING. But I mean, this story won't revolve around the character's sexuality (he is only fifteen after all—that would be a little unfair), neither will all his problems be solved because he kisses his crush or blah blah blah, so, yes, this story is about a boy falling in love with a boy, but it's not really about a boy falling in love with a boy.




Separated from his older brother Patrick after surviving for ten months in the apocalypse together, Oliver is left completely alone. Then five months later; malnourished and harbouring a questionable sanity, by pure luck, Oliver comes across some strangers in a candy shop who invite him to come back to their prison group. Little does Oliver know, his big brother has been living with this particular group ever since their separation.

Rated T - Possible trigger warnings, gore, cussing, violence, sensitive subjects and romantic themes (Not smut. I refuse to do smut - Not that there's anything wrong with smut, I just don't want to write it in this. Age and all of that moral la la)

With almost a year of surviving in the apocalypse under his belt (and machete), his luck finally runs out when he is separated from his older brother Patrick. Now, Oliver is on his own, and has been for five long months. But, one day, with a mixture of pure fate and stale M&M’s, Oliver happens across a few members from a Prison group. Fighting his constant battle between mind and morality, follow Oliver on his journey with the group, his trials and errors and horrors and triumphs.
