You and I/You and me

I have a question. I use very boring examples, but I hope some one will help me out here.

In the subject of a sentence you get: You and I are walking, and not You and me are walking. This is correct, because it is I am walking, and not Me am walking.

But in fanfiction I also often read something like: You are walking with your brother and I. Now, my intuition says it should be You are walking with your brother and me, because correct is You are walking with me, and not You are walking with I. (Same with he/him, she/her, they/them).

Is You are walking with your brother and I a hypercorrection, or is my intuition wrong?
