The Hunter Within


Like night and day, ice and fire, Sophie Lewis and Daryl Dixon are polar opposites. Growing up worlds apart, they share no similarities save for their undying will to survive. When the end of the world creeps up on humanity, Sophie finds herself alone and trying desperately to hold onto the person she once was. For the first time in his life, Daryl finds himself relying on the people around him for safety as he tries to forget his past. With one trying to let go and the other holding on with everything she has, will the unlikely pair be able to discover who they are in the new world or will they lose themselves to the downfall of humanity?

This story will follow the events of AMCs the Walking Dead TV series, each chapter focusing on a specific episode. I obviously do not own anything affiliated with the show or comics. The character list is congruent with the most current chapter. Possible spoilers below.

New readers make my heart sing, especially when they start this journey ten months after I ended it (abit abruptly but we won’t get into that because it’ll make me sad again).

Thank you you so much for leaving a comment. Nothing is more motivating for the unmotivated than a little bit of love. Whenever I get a comment from someone new all I find myself wanting to sit down and grill them with a million different questions.

If youre chasing updates about any eventual stories I write, please follow me on instagram @ sophyl_

Thanks a million again!! xx

Your fanfic has been in the center of my life for the whole month November. Let me just tell you that im in love with everything about this story. Im even at loss of words about how amazing this journey has been.

There have been moments when i actually had to get up and calm down from all the feelings may they be joy sadness or just extreme suffering. Ive been cheering, i've been crying to the point of ugly sobbing, ive been screaming while reading this all.

I dont even know how to tell you how i feel about this fanfic there arent any words for it so ima just AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHH about it cause thats the closets that i can think off "insert all the feelings i cant express here"

I am just so thank full for all your time and effort and everything youve put into this story. Cause WOW youre an amazing writer and when you do make your original story please do know that I WOULD LOVE TO READ THAT TOO.

This journey has ended but it will forever be in my heart.
