Chronological List (as of April 2015)

Multipart series


Series COMPLETE (the two short stories can be read as stand-alones)

(TB: Post Season 6; series might be continued—eventually—with a version of S7)

1. “Snjóflóð”—While all hell broke loose in Louisiana, Eric Northman went home to heal 
from his sister's and maker's deaths. Will his decision to isolate himself lead
 to his own death, or will a natural disaster save his life? (complete)

2. “Avalanche”—While Eric was recovering from the burns he sustained at the end
 of Season 6, Sookie was trying to learn from her past mistakes and move on. 
But how can she move forward when her heart belongs with a vampire who seems 
to have fallen off the face of the earth? (complete)


Series IN PROGRESS (the last part of the main trilogy is currently unfinished,
 but I plan to get to it again eventually)

(TB: Picks up Mid-Season 4)

1. Back & Forth—When Sookie realizes that her feelings for both Bill and Eric might
 have been caused by their blood, she takes drastic steps that will change her
 life―and the lives of Eric and Bill―forever. (complete)

2. Come Back to Me—Now that Sookie & Eric have found their way to each other,
 Bill might just be the least of their worries. How will they deal with 
the threats that will try to separate them forever? Will their bonds 
survive? (complete)

 3. Sojourn—An "interlude" set in the middle of Come Back to Me, Sojourn
 tells the story of Eric and Sookie's necessary reconnection and healing after 
their fight with their greatest enemy. (complete)

4. “King of Fools”—This story is a one-shot parody, which was written in honor
 of the 2013 Fangreaders Awards. It tells of the “fates” of the villains from
 Back & Forth and Come Back to Me. (complete)

5. Earned—This is the last major story in the Back & Forth Universe. 
It jumps forward in time and focuses on Hunter's coming of age—just as much as 
it continues exploring Eric and Sookie's enduring love. 
(in progress--but currently on hiatus)



(SVM and TB Hybrid: All Human)

1. Comfortably Numb—(Set mostly in New York) Eric & Sookie are two individuals
 incredibly beaten down & emotionally stilted due to the cruelty of their 
parents. Can they learn to love themselves & each other, even as outside
 forces try to rip them apart? Will their love survive, or will they be 
faced with a life in which they succumb–once more–to numbness? (complete)

2. Touch the Flame—Eric and Sookie may have decided to fight against 
Appius’s influence in Eric’s life, but that doesn’t mean smooth sailing 
for them. New challenges and tragedies will befall them. Will they find
 a way to stay together through them? Or will Appius drive them apart—
or worse—as they “touch the flame?" (complete)

3. Burn out the Pain— A continuation of Eric and Sookie’s journey to find 
happiness. When secrets are revealed about Sookie’s family, Eric defies 
Appius. However, what will be the cost of that defiance? (complete)



(SVM: Post Dead Ever After)

1. “Enduring”—(Set 3 years after Dead Ever After) Eric gives his POV 
about the events that led Sookie and him to their fates. The Viking has resolved 
to fulfill the bargain his maker made with Freyda. But what if his enemies
 go back on their agreements? (complete)

2. “Uncovering”—(Set two months after "Enduring") A series of happenings allow
 Sookie to uncover the motivation behind Eric's ambiguous behavior as well
 as her own enduring feelings for him. But is it too late to do anything
 to help him get out of his contract with Freyda? (complete)

3. “Resolving”—This third (and final) part of The Enduring Series begins two 
months after "Uncovering." Eric and Sookie—it seems—have allies they'd never
 anticipated. Can they trust in the supernatural world to help them reclaim 
what has been lost? And—more importantly—can they finally trust each other
 enough to let themselves love each other? (complete)



(SVM: Picks up 7 years after Dead Ever After)

1. “Gift Horse”—"Gift Horse" was meant to be a one-shot for the 2013 Sookie's
 Secret Santa exchange; I wrote it as a gift for Suki59. It's Christmas Eve,
 and Eric offers Sookie a gift—a gift that will change her and her family's
 fates and, perhaps, give Eric and her another chance at love. (complete)

2. “Scrooged”—Will Eric finally get to kill Bill? Or is Bill right that 
Felipe and Freyda will come to his rescue? And how will a phone call from
 Sookie potentially change everything for Bill and Eric? (complete)

3. “Black Christmas”—(Set during the night of the Queen of Oklahoma's Christmas
 ball) Will Freyda's white gown be red by the end of the night? And at
 what price comes Eric's revenge? (complete)

4. “Boxing Day”—With Sookie's unborn child, Matthew, being "stubborn" and 
"waiting" for Eric to show up to be born, our Viking rushes from Oklahoma
 to Sookie's Mississippi safe house. Will Russell be the key to Eric 
getting there in time? And how will Sookie cope with Pam as her 
"birth coach?" (complete)

5. “Ice Queens”—While Eric and Sookie spend time with Sammy and Matthew in 
Mississippi, Pam and Thalia tie up some loose ends in Louisiana. (complete)

6. "Romjul"-(Interlude—Part 6 of the Gift Horse Series—Set in Sweden)  
Eric and Sookie—along with Thalia, Karin, Pam, and Sookie’s children—
travel to Sweden, seeking refuge from the lingering threat of 
Felipe de Castro. There, they will encounter new allies, including Olaf 
(Thalia’s vampire sibling who is mentioned in “Scrooged”) and Ricca
 (a beautiful witch who will capture the attention of one of Eric’s vampire



(TB: Picks up at the beginning of Season 5)

1. Inner—A True Blood Season 5 "revision" from Eric's POV, but with an 
Eric/Sookie endgame in mind. (complete)

2. From the Inside Out—While Inner was tied to the Season 5 “canon” (because
 of the rules I set for myself), this story takes off from the end of Inner
 and goes decidedly “off-canon.” Eric and Sookie finally get together
 and get it together—with no time to lose! After all, they have to deal
 with Warlow, the destruction of the TrueBlood factories, the decimation
 of the Authority, and—of course—Billith. 
(In progress, but currently on hiatus)

3. The INNER-Ludes–a collection of Interludes/Outtakes/Side Stories
 for From the Inside Out—all told from NON-Eric POVs. 
(In progress, but currently on hiatus)



(SVM: Picks up after Dead Ever After)

1. Time after Time--What if Sookie was given the chance to change
 her story with Supernaturals? What if she had full knowledge of 
the events that could come to pass? Could she save the people she 
loved the second time around? Would she look to anyone in the Supernatural 
world for help—or would she attempt to avoid that world altogether? (Complete)

2. A Heady Draught--A Time after Time side-story, this piece explores Karin’s 
background, her involvement in Appius’s death, and her encounter with
 Sookie and Eric two years later. It should be read after Time after Time
 and serves as a kind of epilogue. (Complete)



(SVM: Picks up mid-Club Dead) 

1. The Trunk--Being thrown into the trunk by Debbie Pelt forced Sookie to 
the realization that there was no longer any time for her to put off 
answering the hard questions in her life. But will she have the opportunity
 to enact the epiphanies she makes while waiting for Bill to “wake up” 
in the trunk?  And what of Eric? Will feeling Sookie’s terror make
 him more or less regretful about the feelings he hates having? (Complete) 

2. The Boot--With the Jackson trip having ended very differently than 
it could have, Sookie has a new lease on life—a life that includes 
both Eric and a new profession.  Will the Viking and the part-fairy
 be left in peace?  With Bill, Debbie Pelt, and a new witch coven in 
the picture, it’s doubtful.  And what side will Sophie-Anne be on—
when Bill informs her that Eric has interfered with his assignment to secure 
the telepath?(Complete)

3. The Engine--Having embraced their status as a new couple, Sookie and 
Eric must face down the threats that have gathered around them. (In Progress)



(TB: Picks up Mid-Season 3)

1. UninvitedUninvited explores a different direction for the True Blood
 story following the van incident. As Sookie lies in the hospital
 fighting for her life, Eric must pretend to be the ally of his greatest
 enemy, Russell Edgington, in order to save Pam’s life. What if Russell
 looks into Eric’s blue eyes and recognizes the young man he saw so
 long ago? What if Eric has to run for his life? Will he leave 
Sookie behind—at the mercy of Russell and the vampire who almost 
killed her? Or will he take her with him? (complete)

2. Uncharted—Eric and Sookie must marshal allies as they evade Russell
 and his minions. Eric begins to formulate how to bring Russell down,
 even as Sookie learns more about her Fae powers. However, the greatest
 obstacle faced by Eric and Sookie might be letting themselves love 
each other without questioning “why” they love. (complete)

3. United—Finally ready to unite personally by accepting the Fae bond and
 finishing the vampire bond, Sookie and Eric now concentrate upon uniting
 their friends to fight a war against Russell and his allies. Two powerful
 forces will collide in Rhodes, but could the Fellowship bring 
them both down? (complete)




(SVM: Picks up Mid-All Together Dead)

This story begins right after Andre had agreed to let Eric bond with Sookie
 in Rhodes.  What would have happened if the newly bonded pair actually
 had a mature conversation about the bond's implications?  What would
 have happened if Sookie showed her gratitude that Eric "saved" her from
 having to bond with Andre? (story inspired by an idea from switbo)



(TB: Picks up Mid-Season 6)

This is a True Blood story that picks up following Season 6, Episode 7.
 Nora has just died, and—at Bill's request—Sookie has brought Warlow
 back to the human realm. Will the death that surrounds them cause Eric
 and Sookie to choose life—that "other" life they could have together?

Given Unsought 


(SVM: Picks up Mid-Dead as a Doornail)

When Sookie finally tells Eric about what happened when his memory was
 taken away by Marnie’s spell, the vampire notes that she spent more
 time talking about Debbie’s demise than any relationship they had. And
 he realizes something: Sookie doesn’t trust him not to harm her with
 the information about Debbie. Even though Eric is new at love, he knows
 that it cannot flourish without trust, so he cuts ties with Sookie and
 eventually develops a relationship with another. What will happen when
 Sookie realizes that she made a mistake? What will happen when it is she
 who must fight for love which is unsought? (inspired by Lajayden1973)

The Goblin 


(TB-SVM hybrid: Alternative Universe)
Fairy tales are thought of as fiction only by those who do not know of
 the Supernatural world; of course, the humans often don’t know the
 whole story. “Rumpelstiltskin”—SVM/True Blood style. 
Written for Kittyinaz’s June 2015 Writing Contest

The Journey Itself 



Sookie has tragically lost every man she has ever given her heart to; 
Eric doesn’t know how to give his heart to anyone.  Can she teach him
 how to love, even as he helps her to overcome her losses?

Life from Death 


(TB: Picks up in Season 7, episode 9)

What if the Viking decided that being Bill's messenger wasn't going
 to work for him? It was high time for Sookie to hear some hard truths,
 and what she chose to do with those truths would determine whether Eric
 cut ties with her. (Note: This story ignores Season 7, Episode 10.)

The Marks Within


(TB: Alternative Universe; All Human)

The Civil War ravaged lives, pitting brother against brother: 
countryman against countryman. Cousins and best friends, Eric Northman and
 William Compton are on different sides of history, and their situation is
 only complicated further—by a Southern Belle named Sookie Stackhouse. 
(This story was originally written for American Android's Historical
 Fiction contest, and I am proud to report that it won the contest!
 Thanks to all who voted for my story!

Not Without Action 


(SVM: Picks up Mid-Dead Locked)

Having learned that there is a spell that could break the bond between
 her and Eric, Sookie is gung ho to do it; however, in this version
 of events, Amelia proves herself to be a true friend by making sure
 that Sookie has thought things through fully—with a little help
 from a certain Viking vampire. (inspired by ericluver)

Salt Water 


(TB: Picks up Mid-Season 7)

Sookie knew from Eric’s eyes that he was telling her goodbye, but she’d
 had enough goodbyes in her life, and she wasn’t about to say goodbye
 to Eric Northman again-not when she might be able to help him. The only
 question was, “Would Eric fight for his life too?” 
(Note: this story ignores Season 7, Episode 5 and beyond.)

The Sleeper Must Awaken 


(TB: Alternate Universe)

What if Gran had helped Sookie to develop her telepathy, rather than
 encouraging her to hide it? What if Sookie had grown up calling her
 ability a “gift” rather than a “curse?” What if Sookie had sought out
 Eric’s help for a very different reason than trying to clear her brother’s name?

That Bitter Taste 


(TB: Picks up After Season 7)

Set two years after the final scene of True Blood, both Eric and Sookie
 are reassessing their choices. And both of them realize that what they
 feel most is bitterness. Can they turn that bitter to sweet?

Who's Your Daddy?

IN PROGRESS, but currently on hiatus

(TB: Begins at the end of Season 4)

What if it wasn’t Tara whom Debbie Pelt killed? What if it was Sookie?
 (A vampire-Sookie story & a re-imagining of Season 5)


“The Better to Love You With” 


(TB: Picks up after Season 3)

(Chosen 1st place in Sephrenia’s Fall 2014 Writing Contest for banner 2)
 What if Sookie wasn’t able to leave the fairy world when she did? Three
 hundred years have passed in the human realm, and life has gone on for
 Eric Northman. Time has changed many things, but has it changed
 his feelings for Sookie Stackhouse?

“By Any Other Name” 


(SVM: Picks up one year after Dead Ever After)

(Ignores the “fates” found in After Dead) Having lost everything, the once
 mighty Viking is broken. Eric Northman had been told that Sookie Stackhouse
 had been killed. But the shrouded woman in front of him could not be mistaken
 as anyone else—not by him—even if she was going by a different name. Or, 
perhaps, she was a ghost or the Goddess of Revenge herself. (I’m proud to
 say that this story was one of the winners of 
Sephrenia’s 2014 Spring Writing Challenge!)

“Missing at the Table” 


(TB: Picks up four years after the Series Finale)

Four years after Bill is dead and gone, Sookie seems to have embraced the
 “normal life.” But what that “normal” truly entails is very different from
 the way it seemed at the end of the series. What is the true fate of the 
telepath and Viking? Read to find out.

“My Valkyrie” 


(SVM: Alternate Universe)

(Mostly set in 1010 A.D.—during Eric’s Viking days) After Sookie’s father and
 brother are killed by a vampire named Appius Livius Ocella, she is taken to
 Faerie for her own safety. Aspiring to become an angel one day, Sookie becomes
 a guardian, and her first charge is a young Viking prince named Eiríkr. Will
 Appius ruin their chance at love? Or will he unwittingly give them the opportunity
 to be together forever? 
(PROMO for Sephrenia’s Fall 2014 Banner/Writing Challenge)



(TB: Picks up after Season 4)

It's been a year since Sookie witnessed her best friend being buried &
 since she got an offer from Eric. She took him up on it. Now she has an
 offer for him. 
This one-shot was inspired by the Fangreaders Anniversary Writing Challenge (2012).

“Stale and Diminished” 


(SVM: Picks up 10 years after Dead Ever After)

Eric muses about his sorrows as he fulfills the destiny his “makers” 
(both vampire and literary) crafted for him. I have not shied away from
 After Dead; thus, this story is more tragedy than anything else. 

“The Feels Better” 


(TB: Picks up after Season 6)

Sookie is surprised to find her own grave in the Bon Temps cemetery. Will
 her new maker be able to make her feel better?  
(PROMO piece for Sephrenia’s Spring 2014 Writing Challenge.)

“A Viking on His Shoulder” 


(TB:  Mid-Season 2)

This is just a little comedy/parody I wrote to provide a "missing scene" from
 the Episode in Season 2 of True Blood called "Scratches." This occurs after 
Dr. Ludwig has healed Sookie of the Maenad scratch and after Bill is dead for
 the day. What will Eric do when he finds himself alone with an unconscious Sookie?

"Wings upon Your Horns"

Complete (I might continue this story later, however.)

(TB: Alternate Universe)

(Written for Sephrenia’s Fall 2014 Writing Challenge) What if Godric
 had called Eric to his side almost two decades before the Great Reveal?
 What if Eric had never been the Sheriff of Area 5 and had opened Fangtasia
 in Dallas? How would he have reacted if his first look at Sookie Stackhouse
 was when she was wearing a bikini, a cowboy hat, a gun belt, and spurs? Due
 to many requests, this story—originally planned for just a one-shot—might
 be continued, but I'm not sure when I'll decide for sure and try to get to it.

"Yes, Sookie Virginia, There Is a Santa Claus"


(TB; AU)

Vampires have been “out” since 1962 and are a “normal” facet of life. Godric,
 always a visionary, founded the Vampire Historical Society (VHS)—
as well as a newspaper called The Dallas Moon. After his child demonstrates
 apathy towards humans, Godric punishes Eric by making him respond to the
 letters that are sent to The Moon. What will happen when he receives a letter
 from an 8-year-old girl named Sookie Virginia Stackhouse, asking
 if there’s a Santa Claus?

3 thoughts on “Story Index

  1. I have to say, I found your site this past summer and have now (as of today) read all the works posted here. I have thoroughly enjoyed them all. I’ve laughed, cried, gotten angry as all get out (the villains do that to me) and have felt a peace in my soul due to the fact that someone has written these characters that I love so much (both in book and show) with the depth that they actually deserve. You are amazing and I hope you update any of your WIPs soon!

  2. Just finished rereading all your Eric and Sookie stories and had to say “Thank You” for sharing them! Again they have helped me get through some bad times and saying “thank you” just doesn’t seem to be enough. I’m grateful to you for writing them.
