RATING: THIS STORY IS FOR MATURE READERS. IF YOU ARE NOT YET 18, THIS STORY IS NOT INTENDED FOR YOU.
Description: Inner is an Eric-POV re-offering of Season 5 of True Blood with an Eric/Sookie endgame in mind.
If you have read my other stuff, you know that I’m an unabashed Sookie/Eric pairing person, so I am going to warp Season 5 toward an E/S HEA, despite the idiocy that happened during the season. (I will be ignoring the happenings of Seasons 6 & 7.) Thus, expect me to be twisty, but NOT move from the TB episode storyline of Season 5 too much.
Also, I have to say that this story was written especially for my dear Scorp77/CDB33. (Any puns are especially for her.) Scorp was my initial inspiration for writing this story, as she wanted me to “fix” what we were seeing on the show. And I love a good challenge.
Here are the rules that I set for myself for Inner:
- Rule 1: I cannot “change” a plot point handed to me by A.B. and his flunkies—like make Tara stay dead/not undead or make Eric not have sex with Nora.
- Rule 2: I have to somehow make use of what I am given to lead toward an E/S endgame…no matter how separated from that idea A.B. and his flunkies went at times. That means, I can “twist” things and “interpret” them as I wish, but I still cannot “change” them.
- Rule 3: I can add “deleted scenes” at will—as long as they don’t interfere with the overall plot of the show. In other words, if a scene doesn’t logically fit, I can’t just randomly throw in an Eric/Sookie reconnection or—um—sex scene.
- Rule 4: I can do whatever the heck I want with this story AFTER the season finale, except I cannot have the characters build a time machine to erase what happens—or wake up after having “dreamed” the whole season (can anyone say “Bobby Ewing?”) NOTE: FROM THE INSIDE OUT is the sequel to this story, but can be read independently.
