This story begins in chapter 4 of Dead Until Dark when Bill takes Sookie to Fangtasia for the first time … only my version takes a VERY different turn (bye bye canon!). When she tells Eric there’s going to be a raid, he rewards her by driving her home. She can’t stop thinking about him, despite how dangerous he is. And then he shows up and begs her to help him discover who’s been stealing from him. How can she say no? Especially when he promises to make it worthwhile. During the investigation, all hell breaks loose and Sookie gets caught in the middle of a fight to the death. Being in the wrong place at the wrong time means big changes for our favorite telepath.
GabbieAnnie and I brainstormed this last year, so I figured it was about time to get it out of my head.
With her painful detox behind her, Sookie and Eric finally leave the cabin on Willow Bend Road. In New Orleans, she sees the city for what it really is: a vampire oasis. When she meets the queen of Louisiana she’s offered a job that will be tough to beat, but she’s not so sure she wants it.
Eric is faced with his own dilemma when the queen releases him from the debt he owed her. He also must learn how to keep Sookie safe and admit that he feels something much deeper for her than he ever thought possible.
The agony Sookie suffered because of Bill’s betrayal hasn’t been easy to recover from and her anger toward him is like poison inside her. She discovers that the only way she can really get him out of her system is to ask him one simple question: why.
With a clear head and an open heart Sookie must decide what she wants to do with her life. As long as Eric is by her side the sky is the limit.
This little story takes place during the vampire convention in Rhodes. Russell and Bart just tied the knot, Sookie’s just heard all kinds of juicy details about her sort-of boyfriend, Quinn, and she has just been excused to fetch the suitcase the hotel staff called about earlier that night, but before Andre can escort her outside, someone else gets in the way.
I’m dedicating this story to ashmo2000, honulvr, YvonnA, redjane12, patsy1965, meridiean, msbuffy, theladykt, padore, Loftin, jules3677, Kim, saldred75, and the rest of you who wish Bill ill. Very, very ill.
This short story is set near the end of Living Dead in Dallas, right after the Fellowship of the Sun open fire at Stan’s party. Sookie sucks a bullet out of Eric’s shoulder, and then finds Bill killing for revenge. Still in shock from the bombing, she finds solace in an unlikely place, and while she’s recovering, she finds something much better.
