Fanfiction, drawings, and some thoughts about something

Hershel and Merle are so interesting together. Hershel so deeply understands him—it’s clear from how he spoke of Merle to Rick when they were trying to sort out what to do with the guy. And Hershel should understand him—they’re so much alike. They’ve both suffered amputations thanks to the apocalypse. They’ve both been addicted to substances. Their fathers didn’t bother with comforting lies—they used their fists. They left home early to escape that. They know the Bible backwards and forwards. Merle is who Hershel could have been. And Hershel knows it.
