Life I Left Behind

Summary

Charlie Asher has stayed true to her small town roots, despite her new big city life. All that changes though with the onset of the "epidemic"...aka the zombie apocalypse. She's forced to deal with loss, loneliness, and the grueling challenge for survival every single day. She doesn't have much left to remember her old life besides an old, dinged up i-pod that doesn't even work, and of course her memories. Until one day, she comes face to face with an important piece of her past. Her long lost childhood friend, Daryl Dixon. After almost ten years of zero contact, preceded by a bitter fallout, how will these two handle their unexpected reunion?

Characters

Charlie Asher

Charlie Asher

Charlotte Asher was born in a small, southern town just outside Atlanta, Georgia. She's twenty-eight years old, just shy of twenty-nine but is sincerely hoping no one remembers. Something about twenty-nine being just shy of thirty scares her. Anyways, she went to school to become a high school teacher and has spent the last few years teaching in Atlanta. When the outbreak started, she was living in an alright apartment with her twenty year old brother, Gabe. She's independent, honest, and very sincere. She likes being able to take care of herself, and is very, very stubborn about it. Back in her childhood, she lived next door to none other than Daryl Dixon. The two were best friends, inseparable, until Charlie was eighteen years old. Until now, they haven't seen or heard from each other since.

Daryl Dixon

Daryl Dixon

I think we all know Daryl Dixon...our favorite hunter! For the sake of my story, Daryl is going to be two years older than Charlie, making him thirty-years old. They grew up in the same small town. Daryl comes from a broken family. He never had much of a relationship with either of his parents, and relied a lot on himself to get through life.

Gabe Asher

Gabe Asher

Charlie's younger brother.

Harlow Dalton

Harlow Dalton

Merle Dixon's love interest. She saved his life after the Atlanta rooftop incident. Enough said.

Merle Dixon

Merle Dixon

Daryl's older, rough around the edges brother.

Chapters

Comments

I have to say, I am in love with your story. I remember stumbling upon it when you only had 50 chapters (technically 51 with an author's note), and I binge read it. I remember falling in love with Daryl and Charlie as a couple. They are believable and realistic. You captured Daryl's rough gruffness perfectly. When I get left with that cliff hanger though, my heart broke! I was so scared for Charlie! You are an amazing and compelling writer. Please keep the story coming!

Okay so I was so completely over whelmed by my love for this story I had to wait to comment when I could get to a computer and fully express my passion. So I have read a lot of fanfiction ( I'm pathetic ) and I write one but this is by far the best fanfiction I have ever read.I ship your OC more than I ship the one I created. A lot of Daryl romance can be a little ridiculous because he is very closed off very afraid of being abandoned his biggest fear in my opinion is being the last man standing (The words Beth used ) and so to chose to give him this child hood friend was brilliant. she was his place to hide, she was the safety net, she was a smile when home was nothing but fists. I love the flash backs, I love the angsty teenage Daryl that we gets glimpses of smoking and fighting to survive even then. You do Daryl's character so much justice and you gave him a counter part that inst weak. I'm so sick of female leads needing be rescued and being just all together useless hoping a big strong Daryl can protect them. Its bullshit and its degrading to women. Your character is what all female characters should be. She may need to be saved once in a while but she saved him in so many ways and it completely evens out.Shes tough and she is smart and she is kind. Your writing makes me believe everything you say and their history makes his passion to keep her alive his fear of losing her again so much more honest and beautiful. You are an incredible writer but i do just wanna say please dont make beth and Gabe be a thing. I dont even know why maybe just too many couples.
