Justified Black As Coal

Justified Slash: "When Blood Runs Black As Coal" (Raylan/Boyd AU, PG-13, Zombies)

Title: When Blood Runs Black As Coal
Fandom: Justified
Author: HalfshellVenus
Characters: Raylan/Boyd, Art, Rachel, Tim, others (Slash, AU)
Rating: PG-13 (language and violence against zombies)
Word Count: ~7000
Summary: There's trouble in Harlan County but surprisingly, it is not of the criminal kind.
Author's Notes: Written for undeadbigbang, which tempted me to the dark side of Zombiemania! The wonderful art is by glasslogic—please credit her if you borrow anything. Special thanks to tidal_race, who pointed me to the song lyrics by Kathy Mattea that inspired the title.
This story parts with canon in early S2, as far as Raylan and Boyd are concerned, and with any sort of reality where the zombies are concerned. :)
