Hello! Sorry I haven’t done one of these for a while, but I’ve been busy with classes, etc. Now that I’m on vacation–yeah!–I have a bit more time, and I’ve been wanting to recommend this story for a while!
If you haven’t already enjoyed it, I hope you will check it out.
Amnesia by jc52185
You know that I love angst, and this story is right up my alley. The author sets the story in the book-verse and picks up right after Sookie has been attacked by Bill in the trunk in Club Dead. I always thought that this was a pivotal moment in Sookie’s history, and I didn’t like the way that it was resolved. I don’t believe Sookie would have been so quickly forgiving of Bill, and neither does jc52185. Instead, the author takes the story in a new direction. What if Sookie shut down? And what if Eric took it upon himself to take care of her and to help her? What memories of his own would infiltrate his mind, even as he helped her to try to heal following her rape? And how would Hallow’s curse become a curse to them both–throwing a wrench into both Sookie’s healing and Eric’s ability to keep his “monsters” at bay?
(There is a sequel in the works right now, and the author is steady with her posts, so I feel “safe” to recommend that too.)
