Common Tropes in Fanworks

  • Age Difference: to combat the large age gap between the characters sometimes Merle will be aged down and Beth aged up. Although some writers keep their canonical ages and make the issues that arise a feature of their fanfiction.
  • No Zombie Apocalypse AU: modern setting, where no Zombie Apocalypse takes place
  • Merle lives: Merle does not die at the hands of The Governor
  • Prison: Beth and Merle are in a relationship at the prison, or they end up travelling together after the prison falls
  • Threesome: usually involving Daryl Dixon
  • Side Pairing: sometimes a featured secondary pairing in stories where Daryl is in another relationship
