do i want to be in a relationship or do i just want to prove that i’m worthy of one
Is anyone gonna eat this taco or should I just assume that they aren’t
do you ever get so frustrated with a video game that you are no longer rational and you start literally jumping into pits because maybe thats the fucking solution to this bullshit of a dungeon puzzle
One time I did this and it worked though
Okay. Having watched this scene at least 2 million times, I’ve decided to do a little breakdown of the hug and things I noticed/loved.
1. His face when he realizes its her
So he’s just chillin’, listening to the group bicker, when his hunter sense go off as he hears a noise behind him. You can see at first he’s looking for the danger. And then his face just kind of melts. His shoulders drop, his eyes widen, you can almost hear his deep inhale of disbelief.
2. Carol’s expression
You guys she looks terrified, apprehensive, worried; she has no idea how the group is going to react. She doesn’t know if they know, if they hate her, if they’ve forgiven her. But she approaches them anyways because shes a brave motherfucker.
3. Daryl’s run
He sprints. It’s not a “oh woah dude look Carol’s back, ima hug her!” approach. It’s a “hOLy sHiT, Carol is here, and there is not a single thing more important than having her in my arms as fast as physically possible.”
4. Daryl’s smile
LOOK AT HIS SMILE
Right before he reaches her there is a full on, shit eating, this is the best thing that has ever happened to me grin on his face. We have seen him smile like that what once? She puts it there instantly.
And I’m pretty sure in that moment, all the anxiety Carol was feeling is vanquished. She knows he is happy to see her, and that’s all that matters. If everyone else hates her, she’ll have him.
5. The hug
Still looking at the previous gif. Look how freaking tight he is hugging her. And the noises he is making? He is hyperventilating. He can’t even breathe normally, his mind is racing, his heart is pounding, his emotions are exploding, so he buries his face in her neck, grips her as tight as he possibly can, and lets go.
And if you listen carefully, you can totally hear Carol letting out these little laughing sobs. She is so relieved and happy and equally as emotional. It’s overwhelming.
6. The Darylness
Guys this is an awkward hug. They’re rocking, tripping over each other, he’s flinging her in the air. She’s holding on for dear life. It’s perfect.
It’s so Daryl. Let’s think about how many hugs he’s had in his lifetime. Let’s think about how many meant this much to him. Probably none. He has no idea what he’s doing. All he knows is that he wants her in his arm, he wants to breathe in her scent, and he never wants to let go.
He never stops moving, hes a bundle of energy, he’s having so many feelings and he doesn’t know what to do with them. And Carol understands all of this. She knows the value of this hug, even if its a bit of a wild ride for her. She just continues smiling like the fucking sun and holding on to him for all she’s worth. She’s still making those little laugh sob noises and she’s the happiest I think we’ve ever seen her in this show.
7. The lift
I can’t be the only one who sees that as a straight up pelvic thrust…..maybe that’s why shes smiling so much….
Whatever it is its adorable as fuck.
8. THE HEADSTROKE PEOPLE
You can see it at the end of this gif
This hug is very Daryl in nature, rough, awkward, uncoordinated, pretty much how we imagine most romantic things with Daryl would go. And then he pulls out the headstroke, and its gentle, and loving, and tender and absolutely perfect. For me it turnes the hug from a bro-union, to something deeper. i mean how often do you caress the back of your best friend/bro’s head. Now how often would you do that if you were Daryl Dixon. I can’t say I could ever picture him doing that to Rick or Glenn or Michonne….
9. Carol’s face part 2
LOOK HOW MUCH HER FACE HAS CHANGED
She is so freaking happy here! She looks like she can’t believe it, and she doesn’t fully understand what’s going on, but it’s the greatest thing that’s ever hapened to her so she’s not going to question it, she’s just going to enjoy it for all she’s worth.
And then when she pulls back and looks at him. Be still my heart. Such love. I can’t handle it.
10. Daryl’s soul wrenching expression
you know exactly which one I’m talking about
I don’t even know how I could possibly describe this expression. First of all he’s crying, which is monumental. He is looking at her like he can’t believe she’s there, but she is, and it’s overwhelming for him. He’s looking at her like she’s the most beautiful thing he’s ever seen. He’s looking at her, and it’s like all the terrible things that have happened to her since she disappeared are forgotten, and all that matters is her, right there, in front of him.
Guys I thought he was going to kiss her. I still watch this scene and think he’s going to kiss her. I have no doubt that he will, soon, kiss her.
11. The rebound
He goes back in.
He’s confused, he’s overwhelmed, so he goes back to where he knows it’s safe.
Also, my dog does this to me. He drops his head and shoves it against me. It’s what he does when he wants love, and comfort, and that is exactly what Daryl is doing.
He needs to know she’s real, he needs her to assure him of her presence, he needs her to comfort him, because she’s the only thing that can do it.
And how her hands immediately go to his hair/neck. I love it. It’s so tender, its so receptive, it’s so assuring. She knows what he wants and she does not hesitate to give it to him.
12. Her hands on his face
She make it look so natural! And we have to think about this in terms of Daryl, who has made it very clear in the past that he’s not extremely fond of touch.
We’ve seen him slowly overcome that aversion. From back slaps, to arm nudges, to shoulder bump. But having someone else’s hands on your face and neck? That’s so far beyond as far as intimacy goes.
And he doesn’t give a fuck. He is welcoming her touch, relishing it, hes still looking at her like she is the sun that lights up his world, and he never wants to stop staring, even if he goes blind because of it.
13. Carol’s tears
Look how her hand goes to her face. We’ve seen Carol do that a million times when she is laughing or crying or overflowing with emotions.
She’s doing all of that now. This hug means just as much to her as it does to Daryl.
You can practically feel the silent conversation they are having right now.
The “I missed you”s that were left unsaid but heard all the same.
The “I’m so fucking glad you’re here”s that weren’t shared, but were understood anyways.
That’s the best thing about Caryl for me; it goes so deep. it transcends superfluous words and useless emotions. It gets to the base of love, to the “I want you with me no matter what, I may not always say it or show it, but it’s true, and you know it and that’s all that matters. Despite what everyone else sees or thinks, I love you and you love me. I would do anything for you and you would do the same for me and we both know it, so everything will be alright”
And that’s my hug breakdown guys. Thanks for reading.

We’re friends of ‘the chick with the sword’ and ‘the kid in the hat.’
Carol’s officially a badass.
Who wouldn’t want to work at Google? The whole HQ looks like an amusement park with FREE food 24/7 & if an employee of Google dies, their spouse will receive half their pay for 10 years as well as stock benefits, and any children will receive $1000 a month till they turn 19. Source
let me tell you a story about the google headquarters
so my uncle works for google and I went down to visit him once and he took my family on a tour of the google headquarters just for fun. there was tons of cool stuff and art and a random jungle themed room and the most crazy ass 360 degree google earth screen thing you ever saw
but you’d kind of expect all that right
but then I started to notice something kind of weird
there was a weird amount of rubber ducks? like. a WEIRD amount of rubber ducks. like typical yellow ones and camo ones and huge pink ones with bows and tiny donalds and pirates of the carribean themed ducks and bejeweled ducks with no explanation on nearly every surface
so i asked my uncle why there were so many ducks and this is what he said:
"google has a suggestion box for employees to use, and one time this guy got hired at google who had previously worked for another company. the other company also had a suggestion box but they never actually listened to any of the suggestions, so the new employee assumed that google would be the same way. so as a joke, he put a suggestion in the box at he google hq that said something along the lines of "great office but needs more rubber ducks." a week later, 5000 rubber ducks arrived in the mail"
google read this guy’s bullshit suggestion about ducks
and actually listened to it
AND ORDERED 5000 RUBBER DUCKS
Bunny falls asleep
bun didn’t actually fall asleep!! bunnies flop over like this when they feel safe and comfortable in their environment. they rarely stretch out and lay down because they’re prey animals, so when ur bun does completely lays on their side or their back, it means they feel 10000% safe around you
My grandpa texted for the first time in his life today and he spit straight wisdom out of the keyboard
I can’t. THERE ARE TEARS!
THE HUNTING TEA PARTY!!!
