Obviously there are spoilers below for 10×6, so that’s the last warning if you don’t wanna know them!
– I’ve already had a post concerning this but damn, Negan in a blindfold + talking and annoying the shit out of beta…I love it and I’m so here for that kinda dynamic
– Having to shut up is probably a way worse punishment for him than not being able to see. He seemed so happy that this thing seemed to finally go off and then Beta moves it to his mouth
– Beta with benefits? Oh my god
– Daryl and Carol crossing that border will definetly have consequences one way or another and I don’t really know what to think of it yet + will they see Negan with the whisperers?
– I still have trouble understanding Eugene here and there, even after all this time + I’m really wondering who that voice could be on the other side (I did get some Rick season 3 vibes when he was on the telephone even though Eugene is definitely not hallucinating this like Rick did back then)
– That montage with Negan and Beta? Gold. Especially that part where Negan tried to flatten out his skin piece to make it look bigger
– Looks like the whisperers succeeded with contaminating the creek. That really looks bad (kinda curious if it’s gonna have the same effect as the walker blood covered weapons in season 8, if they’d turn (even if it’s just a couple of them) that would be pretty horrible)
– Dante seems to be a better guy than I thought at first. Still weird as hell, but alright
– Shit, poor Siddiq. Please get yourself some help in whatever way that might be
– Fuck you beta for leaving Negan in that group of walkers
-He really doesn’t have much luck with knives at the moment. First at the bus, now that. Give him Lucille back!
– Yeah, Carol definitely planned taking a whisperer there and I’m not here for that tension between her and Daryl. I don’t ship them, but I like their friendship a lot and this is not(!) what I wanna see between them
– “Best bring that extra long tape measure on account of my humongous balls”? Looks like we got a new addition to my list of favorite Negan quotes
– Why (seriously why) does Negan look so smoking hot covered in blood? (on a side note, I can’t say how happy I am that he finally has his leather jacket back, I missed it so much)
– Alpha get your dirty fingers off him or I swear, I’ll cut them off
– All in all, great episode! And I’m loving how much Negan content we’re getting at the moment!🖤
• A lot of shifting and grumbling from his side as he’s swinging somewhere between falling asleep and being awake, even though he really tries to tone it down to not wake you up
• Him being surprised once again by how much you cuddle up in your sleep to him or search for his closeness and warmth, only to begin to truly enjoy it
• Whenever you’re in-between some shifts and didn’t have much sleep the night before, him actually loving to lay next to you on the couch or have you huddled up to his side, even if it’s only for a few minutes
• It’s not that unusual for him to feel you crawling on top of him or right to his side whenever you see him taking a nap on the bed or on the couch only for him to smirk softly before he wraps his arms tightly around you
• Whenever you both had a exhausting day of scavenging outside, you begin to allow yourselves some naps in the truck to gain new strength, all while finally finding a little peace as you bury your face into the curve of his neck and cuddle up to him
• Him being mostly the one who is faster up on his feet again, ready to move on with a run or with some work in Alexandria, only for you to often clasp his hand, a little teasingly refuse to let him go before he agrees with a small smile on his lips to five more minutes with you , in the truck, on the couch or in your bed
The hugs when you come back from a run: As soon as you step out of truck and he feels you finally back at his side, his arms wrap tightly around you, pull you flat against his chest to feel your warmth as happiness washes over him. And while these moments of affection let the warmth come back into your body you craved while you were gone, they also show how deeply relieved he his to see you coming back safe and sound as well as showing how much he actually missed you.
The hugs when he comes back from a run: Seeing him coming back feels just as great for you as it feels for him to finally see you again. The moment you walk or even run towards him and eventually wrap your arms tightly around him as you mumble into his ear how relieved and happy you are to have him back is the one he secretly and maybe even unconsciously waits for from the moment on he’s sitting on his motorcycle and drives out of the gates of Alexandria
Relieved hugs: When either you or him thinks that the other one might be hurt, the relief is just as big as the hug that follows. Especially when he has the fear that something might’ve happened to you, he can’t keep himself from running towards you, slinging his arms around you and entangling his hand into your hair to let you bury your head into his shoulder or the crook of his neck just to feel you as close as he can and to soothe the panic that was stuck in his bones.
Comforting hugs for him: In tough moments you’re the one who’s there for him and as soon as you wrap your arms around him and he gets to lean his head against yours or nuzzle his face into the curve of your neck, it breaks out of him. Whether it are just shivers that run through his body or whimpers and even sobs that erupt his chest, it comforts him to hear your soothing voice, feels your hand stroking over his back, running through his hair or caressing the back of his neck as he begins to first reluctantly then tightly press your body against his.
Comforting hugs for you: Just as much as he can count on you, you can count on him. When you’re tensed up, trembling and the first tears already begin to roll down your cheeks he’s there to hold you tight, pull you into his lap when you’re sitting on the couch or in bed just to wrap his arms even tighter around your body and let you nuzzle your face into his chest or neck as he tries to soothe your pain and give you as much comfort as you need.
The “just because“ hugs: At the beginning of your relationship, they are rather rare from his side since he still has to get used to the affection and bodily love that is suddenly so available for him. But over time, as he grows more confident and feels you hugging him here and there just because you want to feel him, it appears more and more often that he just wraps his arms around you out of the blue to pull you against him as he’s taking over your shift in the guard tower or simply just standing next to him in your house. They’re of course not as deep and tight as the hugs to comfort you, but their light touches as he lays his head softly on your shoulder or lets his hands rest on the small of your back are just as loving.
The hugs after you successfully fought off a bunch of walkers together: Whenever you’re both on a run together, the moment comes where a bunch of walking corpses stumbles towards you and its time to show off how much of a great team you both are. As soon as the threat is gone you often find yourselves back in each others arms, exhausted, heavily breathing and covered in blood and guts but simply happy and relieved to feel and hold the other’s unharmed body in your arms.
Hugs from behind: Mostly it’s actually you who’s wrapping your arms from behind around him and who rests your head on his shoulder while he’s working on something or is just standing around. As much as you enjoy to squeeze him lightly as you’re closing your eyes while you’re resting against him, as much enjoys Daryl to feel how much you need his closeness, feel how you rest your hands on his body and even to feel how your breath slows slightly down and grows steady as you’re relaxing due to his touch.
Big bear hugs: Even though they’re similar to the comforting hugs, the big bear hug has still something special. In general tough times or when of the both of you is having a bad day or even just feels tensed up and restless the big bear hug has its big moment. No matter if it’s you or him who pulls the other into their deep, warm embrace and wraps their arms tightly around the other’s body, every burden feels a little lighter with every passing moment until the closeness and warmth washes any tension out of both of your bodies.
The hugs that lead to more: The hugs that are either meant to lead to more from the beginning on or begin to slip into this direction the longer you’re feeling each other. They’re the ones where you start to kiss his neck first gently, then with more longing as you begin to teasingly nibble on his sensitive skin while he begins to let his hands run over your body, under your clothes or lets them grab and feel up just the right spots of you until both of you know that its time to take things upstairs.
• Him at first being a little confused as he sees you secretly hanging up a mistletoe in your shared home, simply because he’s not too familiar with this kind of tradition
