Epilogue: Giving Thanks


“I am grateful for what I am and have. My thanksgiving is perpetual.”-Henry David Thoreau



“You got that?” Eric asked his wife and bonded as she took some bread out of the oven.

“Yep,” she said as he turned his attention back to the blood fountain he was assembling.

But not without glancing at his wife’s left hand.

There was now an extra ring next to Sookie’s engagement ring, marking their human wedding. He was pretty sure that no one else in the wide world was bonded in two ways, plus married in two ways, plus pledged.

Her baked item dealt with, Sookie smiled and leaned upward to kiss her mate’s cheek.

During the year since Russell had been out of their lives, Eric’s and Sookie’s lives had calmed. After a quick stop in Bon Temps, they had taken a vacation to Fort Stockton and then to Sweden. But they’d returned to Louisiana soil the previous February. They’d settled in their home in Slidell, the place where “they” had begun in so many significant ways. It was nothing fancy, but it suited Sookie well, and Eric was mostly ambivalent about where they settled—just as long as it had a large bathtub.

The quilt that Sookie had taken from Slidell so many months before—the one that had traveled with them throughout their time evading Russell and their “vacation” after that—had re-found its home.

It looked “right” on their bed in the Slidell house. And the couple felt “right” settling in the New Orleans suburb—at least for the time being.

Pam had—indeed—taken the position as the Sheriff of Area 1, and she’d thrived in it and in her business life, opening “her” version of Fangtasia on the Mississippi River. Needless to say—there was gambling, fangbangers, and sex aplenty.

Eric and Sookie had been there only once.

They didn’t feel the need to gamble after all they’d been through. Fangbangers were unwelcome. And they got plenty of sex at home.

Peter Threadgill had proven to be a good king thus far. Moreover, he was quite crafty at inspiring affection from Pam.

Sookie suspected that it was because Peter let Pam participate anytime he had a foe to torture. But she knew better than to confirm that.

“What’s up, pussycat?” Brady asked as he walked into the restaurant, carrying a large box.

“Nothing much,” Sookie returned with a smile. “What’s that?”

Brady rolled his eyes. “Leonie has confused Christmas and Thanksgiving again,” he said, showing Sookie that the huge box was full of gifts.

Leonie slugged his shoulder as she walked in behind him. “Of course I didn’t. I just might not see you for Christmas this year, so I wanted to bring our gifts early.”

“Our,” Brady muttered. “As if I had a hand in them.”

“Don’t make me spank you, vampire,” Leonie warned, even as the new vamp’s fangs came down.

Leonie and Brady looked at each other as if they were about to attack or fuck—or both.

It was a common look between the two.

“I don’t need to see this, Mom!” Sookie yelled, using the title she’d been calling Leonie for many months. The two were closer than many mothers and daughters that Eric knew of, so he wasn’t about to discourage the relationship. On the contrary, he’d known that Sookie craved family, especially since her own brother was still “lukewarm” when it came to accepting him, which was why Sookie hadn’t given him an invitation to the first annual Thanksgiving gathering at Seguro, a restaurant by day and a club by night that Eric and Sookie had opened in New Orleans.

Eric knew that Jason would be missed by his bonded. But there were plenty of others on the guest list.

“Brother! Sister!” Duncan’s voice boomed as he entered the establishment. He had a case of Royalty blended on his shoulder, which was to fill the fountain for the vampires.

Eric smiled and went to greet his bror. “Well met,” the Viking said even as Klymene entered the room.

The vampiress and elder fairy quickly embraced.

“So—how is the job as Magister?” Leonie asked.

Klymene grinned. Agnes had asked her to be Magister even before Duncan’s two weeks had been up, but—unlike him—she actually wanted the position, so she’d said yes.

“Don’t get me started!” Duncan said crankily, though fondly. He pointed to his mate. “This one loves to be judge, jury, and executioner. And I’m back to being an enforcer—guarding the Magister.” He rolled his eyes. “I’ll give Agnes some credit. She managed to find a way to keep me around,” he growled, though no one thought he was truly perturbed.

Next to arrive were Tara and Alcide, who had decided to move back South to help to reestablish the Were population in Mississippi. The two had married a month after Eric and Sookie had exchanged human vows in California. They’d settled in Jackson and were expecting a child the next year, though no one was “supposed” to know. Supernatural scenting had taken away the mystery, but Sookie had been stern in making sure that no one would say a thing. Of course, the telepath knew that her friend was anxious and wanted to wait until after her first trimester before telling anyone else.

Alcide had indulged his wife’s request.

And he hadn’t told her that everyone would already know based upon her scent.

Alcide had certainly learned how to “handle” the fiery woman!

Also on the guest list were Pam and King Peter, though he was “incognito” for the night—meaning that he was there as a friend and not a king. Octavio and Jasper Fant had sent their regrets, as they had other family responsibilities. But Amelia would be joining them.

“Hunter!” Sookie exclaimed, seeing her cousin running into the room with his father and his demon nanny. Sookie had celebrated getting to know the young boy, and Eric didn’t mind him either. Since his telepathy was “fairy” in nature, Hunter was quite well-adjusted. And he seemed quite happy to have family around. Plus, Remy was tolerant of those of other races, so that made things easier.

“Let me get that,” Eric said of the large cooked bird, which Sookie was about to take out of the oven.  “Go see Hunter,” he added with a wink.

She did just that, as he secured the fowl from the cooking device.

“Domesticated, I see,” Duncan taunted.

“Shall I show you how much?” Eric returned asked with a mixture of playfulness and threat in his tone.

“Uncle Eric! Uncle Duncan! Can I fights too?” Hunter asked cutely. He’d seen the two brothers spar before—during the previous Fourth of July party—and was brimming with excitement that there might be another “show.”

“Of course, little warrior,” Duncan grinned, picking up the boy and spinning him in a quick, tight circle.

“Who are we missing?” Sookie asked, looking around.

“Us,” Amelia said, entering with Sam. The two had hit it off at Sookie and Eric’s wedding.

“And us,” Pam echoed, waltzing in with the King on her arm as if she owned the place—and the king. He didn’t seem to mind.

“Northman,” Peter said.

“Peter,” Eric returned with a slight bow.

“Hey, where’s Pythia?” Sookie asked.

“She said she’d be here at the right time,” Brady intoned, rolling his eyes.

“Of course she did,” everyone else said together.


Bill Compton had been waiting for this night—the night that he’d be fully healed, the night that he would finally kill Eric Northman, avenge his master’s death, and take back his property, for Sookie Stackhouse was truly his.

It didn’t matter that she called herself Sookie Northman now.

Not in the fucking least!

He would break her of that nonsense. And then he would turn her.

It had taken a long time for Bill to heal from his master’s punishment, but Jennifer Rigans had helped.

Glamouring had always been his special gift, and—even tortured to within an inch of his life—it had not let him down. Jennifer had arranged for the coffin that she’d hoped their master had survived in to be opened. But Bill had had Russell’s blood, and Russell had had his; Bill knew that his king had not lived through the night.

He’d certainly not died in the Rhodes blast, which had taken Talbot!

Bill closed his eyes and regained his control. He would need it.

After he’d glamoured Jennifer, she’d proven to be a very loyal human, making sure he had what he need and that his continued life had gone unrecorded.

He’d planned carefully, even ransacking Hallow’s lair to find potions that would conceal his scent. He had one on now as he exited the delivery truck, his face concealed behind a huge bouquet.

Eric had ordered a surprise for his “wife”—a lovely and large arrangement of orange, red, and yellow flowers.

Bill scoffed.

He’d read the card: All that I am thankful for leads my thoughts back to one thing. You.

It had been signed as “your bonded, pledging, and devoted husband.”

Bill had been sickened by the note, but he had relished in the opportunity the flowers provided. A stake was concealed in the flowers, and the delivery boy had very particular instructions—to bring the flowers to the back door to give to Eric Northman at exactly 8:00 p.m.

Clearly, the bastard wanted to present the gift to his “wife” himself.

Bill was determined that he’d never get the chance.


I was old, and the world had placed its weight onto me in a way that it had never burdened another—as far as I knew.

But I’d grown used to seeing the future—though I doubted that a vampire should ever have had such a gift. But I was still in the world—many long years after I’d been turned. Thus, clearly, there was still a use for me in it.

A place.

I closed my eyes and waited. Knowing the future was often a curse. And, except on very rare occasions, I’d stayed out of the affairs of humans and Supernaturals alike. But—on occasion—I let myself have a smidgen of “fun” when I was positive my involvement would have no repercussions for those whom I cared about.

And—though I might have seemed distant at times—I did care. All the women that I’d chosen as handmaidens were dear to me. My child, Roman, had held my dead heart for many years. And my new child, Brady, amused me daily. My descendent and her mate were also among those for whom I cared—though I’d not told Sookie that she had my “human” blood tracing through her veins. It was not a fact she needed to have, and she and I were already friends.

When I experienced “well enough,” I knew to leave it alone.

However, some things were unacceptable. Oh, the whelp, Bill Compton, failed to kill Eric in all versions of the future I had seen when Bill had actually gotten to make his delivery. And Eric had always ripped his head off, too.

“Too fast,” I said to the prone vampire, whom I’d placed on the torture table I’d set up. “Way too easy of an end for you.”

I’d grabbed Bill up when he’d been at his most celebratory—right when he’d been visualizing his success.

“Really? One such as you doesn’t deserve to polish the boots of the Viking—let alone slay him,” I scoffed as I took another of Bill’s dead organs from his body. I’d already taken the obvious things: fingers, hands, toes, feet, dick, balls, tongue, eyes, ears, nose—anything that stuck out, actually.

The world had shown me how to be cruel, and I felt it owed me a little revenge. Killing Bill was the closest I would get to avenging Roman’s death. And the death of my new child’s mother. And I’d wanted so badly to fight against Russell, but I’d been side-lined by my visions.

“Not this time,” I smiled, pulling out intestines.

My phone rang, and I motioned to Batanya for a towel so that I could wipe my hands before I answered.

Bill was beyond noise—and, likely, beyond pain. But I was not quite done with him.

“Child,” I answered, knowing it was Brady.

“Mistress,” he said respectfully, “I can tell you are having fun, but you are greatly missed by your family.”

I smiled and sighed. “I shall be there soon, child.” I hung up the phone and looked at Compton.

His body was losing hold of its magic. I put my phone away and then thrust my hand through his chest, crushing his heart as I did.

I closed my eyes and smiled again. The future was a good one for those I cared about. And it was good for me too.

A time of peace had come.

It was deserved.


A/N: Well—that’s all folks! I hope that all the loose ends were tied up. Let me know if I left you hanging on anything.

Almost as soon as I put Eric and Sookie into the safe house in Slidell, I decided that’s where I’d let them end up. It was there that they really got to know each other while Sookie was recovering from the blood tie-breaking spell. It was there that they first acknowledged that they loved each other. I really ended up falling in love with this little world as I was writing about it. And I began caring a lot about some of the supporting characters, especially the ones I made up. In truth, I was going to kill off Klymene in the battle, but I just couldn’t do it in the end. I liked her too much. LOL. And I didn’t want Duncan to have to suffer her loss. I also wanted to leave Leonie and Brady in a good place.

You may wonder why I didn’t let Sookie kill Bill. It would have been poetic justice for her to do so, after all. Or you might wonder why I didn’t let Eric torture and kill Bill. Sigh. I thought about doing both of them. But—in the end—I didn’t even want them to see Bill again. I didn’t want his presence to taint Eric and Sookie’s new life in any way. And I’m glad the A.P. agreed. Plus, Pythia truly was pissed that I’d left her out of the battle for the most part. And I’m sure that she made Bill suffer in ways that even the Viking could not have done.

So—here we are: finished. I’m always melancholy when I finish a story that I’ve worked on for so long. I’m excited to see how you all liked the ending and the series as a whole, but I’m also a little sad to leave this UN-iverse where I love so many of the characters. But I hope I’ve ended it in a way that satisfies you all: Eric and Sookie enjoying a “simple” life, surrounded by their friends and family and growing in their love for each other. To me, this is the best kind of life I could imagine.


Many thanks to Kleannhouse for being my second pair of eyes in creating a more polished piece.

 Many thanks to Sephrenia for creating so much art work related to this series.

 Many thanks to all of you for giving your time to read the UN-iverse stories.

 And, finally, to all of you who have given me even more time by commenting on the stories (some of you on every chapter!), you have my special thanks. I first shared my writing because I had grown to love reading stories in this fanbase so much. And I wanted to contribute to it. I hope I can entertain you all—give your lives a little pleasure as so many other authors have given me pleasure. Your kind words and continued support offer me so much more than I could have ever imagined.  

Thank you!

    1. A wonderful ending to this story. I am glad that they got their happily ever after. I will miss these characters also. You are a fantastic author and I can’t wait for your next story.

  1. Amazing! A great ending for them. Your original characters were fantastic – I will especially miss Duncan and Brady. The actors you chose were very fitting in my opinion. Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful talent. 👏😃

  2. I don’t know how to feel about the Epilogue really. It was so anti-climactic it was almost a let down.
    Yes, I know there wasn’t supposed to be a lot of action
    As for the series…You know how I feel about it, lol. considering I’ve called it MY United (etc.) in comments before :D.

    1. That’s Bill–the ultimate anti-climax. LOL. I loved the idea of him healing for a long time and planning for a whole year only to be stopped before he could even put his plans into action. But I can see your point. There wasn’t any real action in it. I was determined to leave Eric and Sookie in peace–even if I had to let the AP do it. Hopefully not too much of a let down, though. Beyond that, thanks for being such a wonderful supporter of this story! “Your” UN-iverse and this writer are grateful beyond words.

  3. I know how you feel!! It’s a relief to be done, but on the other hand, I often want to stay in that universe!! Great job! I have been interested in this one from the tease you gave us so long ago. And you have fulfilled my every wish for this series of stories!!! Awesome job as always!!

  4. Magnifico!
    Thanks for this wonderful trilogy. ..I will miss it.
    Loved that Bill was killed by Pythia, Eric and Sookie didn’t need to know he was still undead, …They are living a wonderful life with wonderful friends and family.

  5. Now that’s a perfect ending! Many thanks to you, Sephrenia, and kleannhouse for all your combined efforts and fantastic teamwork! A splendid job! 🙂

    1. Thanks to you for always commenting on the chapters and for your support. And you are definitely right about the quality of the ladies that help me out. They are wonderful and so giving of their time!

  6. Ironic that you gave us the Thanksgiving gathering we were cheated out of on TB. I love the way you handled the Bill problem, keeping his insanity away from Eric and Sookie was the right decision.. I will miss this world you created for us. But I also have hope because I know you are always thinking of new stories to share. Thank you for sharing your gift.

  7. I, too, feel the loss when a beloved series ends. Sigh…..I know you promised the 3rd story in the B&F trilogy, so there is so much more to look forward to.

    Hope Bill’s ego was not inflated because it was the AP that sent him to his final death –always a egomaniac 🙂

    Ah….Thanksgiving……the one we were robbed of by TB! Thanks for righting that wrong!


    1. Trust me: Bill was in too much pain to have an inflated ego. 😉 And–yes–Thanksgiving. I thought it was rather appropriate. I appreciate your always reading and commenting. I do have a question though. Did you accidentally skip over reading chapter 41? I posted two chapters and a few people overlooked it. I wondered if you had b/c I didn’t see a comment from you on it and you ALWAYS comment. LOL. It’s okay if you read it and just went on to the next chapter–obviously, but I wanted to make sure you didn’t skip it since it sort of wraps up Sookie and Eric’s story in most ways. Anyway, thanks for your continued support!

  8. Thanks for giving us such a wonderful triology going to miss this story so much. Way to go with letting the AP take care of Bill she deserved to get to torcher and kill someone glad it was the nut job looking forward to reading your next story Earned.

  9. A very fitting ending for Eric and Sookie. This is my favourite story of yours which is saying something because they are all fantastic! Thank you for all of your hard work in keeping our little fandom alive and well😃

  10. This was an amazing journey, thank you so much for writing this epic saga. It is wonderful. The world you create is colorful, engaging and so creative. You’re a great author, one of my favorites.

  11. Sobs – Thank you for this great story. Letting the AP do the dirty work was a good idea .Our beloved couple had enough dark moments in their life. I also will miss this world, created so beautiful by you. Sobs again… I loved the comment from duckbutt60 about Bills ego. LOL
    Now I’m looking forward, what you have next to entertain us. Thanks again.

  12. I see why you chose to give Eric and Sookie a calm and happy ending. They deserved it after all and letting the AP do it was justice enough.
    I’ll miss reading this collection of stories but I look forward to reading your next ones. Keep up the good work!!

    1. Thanks for always reading and commenting. After everything with Russell, I just wanted to give them peace. And, of course, the AP got her moment too.. If makes you wonder what other secret things she does/did. 😉

  13. Holy crap.. bill was still alive! Death by surprise AND evisceration wascthe perfect end for him… truly in messy pieces!
    Thank you for this epic journey… it was wonderful!

  14. ijust love all your storys im just a little upset that jason didnt grow up i would have loved for him to be there with his sister but everything ended great loved it and loved that the ap did bill in!

    1. I suppose that one of the messages of this story is that family is chosen, not automatic–even when there’s a blood connection involved. I find that Jason’s character is a little problematic on the show (and in the books). The “old” Sookie would have let him into her inner circle despite his lukewarm acceptance of Eric, but this Sookie won’t do that. This is also why Niall doesn’t make an appearance here.
      Thanks so much for your message and support.

  15. I am glad that you didn’t let Eric & Sookie know that Bill survived the bombing. Pythia deserved a little payback of her own. SO great to see them all happy and healthy. Thanks for another wonderful story! Looking forward to reading more from you

  16. A little sad of course as such a compelling story, one full of great plot lines and action scenes but also very satisfying character and E-S relationship development, reaches its final conclusion… But it’s a very HEA for Eric, Sookie and their family and friends… And in what I consider a bonus, Bill’s over-ambitious revenge plans get justly crashed and by no other than the AP which to be is additionally satisfying as she’s such a disappointing character in the books… Could have been/ done so much more… And here she orchestrates and then monitors Russell and his allies’ defeat (saving the world from their nasty plans) and then, closer to home, prevents an unnecessary upset to Sookie and Eric’s Thanksgiving with a surgical intervention… Well done!

    1. I agree with you about the AP. Such an interesting premise for a character, but not developed in the books. Quite sad–really. I hope I did her justice here. I’m glad you liked the outcome and I appreciated this and other thoughtful comments that you have made for this UN-iverse.

      1. You did… DEA made me pretty mad at CH and I still think she wasted some great characters… I think she was good at creating those characters and some scenarios but the story lines and plots were weak and many characters and scenarios were tragically underdeveloped/underused… Stories like yours or say Natsgirl’s are so obviously richer and more complex (and better written too). I think if the tone of the books had stayed the light hearted one from the early books, that’d have been fine but as they grew darker, the writing just wasn’t up to mustard IMO…

  17. I totally enjoyed this entire series! I will definitely miss these people and their world. Thank you so much for not only creating them but sharing them with us. Looking forward to what comes next.

  18. it was a tie up of all the loose ends. and loved Pythia getting to revenge her family by torturing Billy Boy, just desserts. and it is always my pleasure you be your second pair of eyes. i will miss this group. KY

  19. ScumBill died a miserable, painful, and prolonged death knowing that Sookie was alive and well and happy with Eric. I’m happy. It doesn’t really matter who made him suffer, just that he did! Lol.

  20. Thank you so much for this trilogy. I have fallen in love with your original characters and the ways you twisted the universe to suit your story. The detail you put into the blood sharing, dreams, spells and their history just added so much to the story. I won’t say that at times I was not mad at one or more character but that is part of the joy I get from reading your work; the emotion I feel with and for the characters is amazing.
    I will definitely miss them but I love where you ended the story. I also totally agree with you having the AP intervene with Bill. He didn’t deserve to interrupt their HEA even a little bit.
    Can’t wait for your new projects, especially “Earned” as they universe has a very special place in my heart for dragging me into the wonderful world of fanfiction. ‘Till next time!

  21. I’m have mixed feeling, both happy and sad. I’m sad I will not have that feeling of knowing another chapter is coming, but happy in that you have completed another fantastic series. All your characters had wonderful depth and all the action made all the chapters seem alive. I wanted Leonie to bring popcorn to Thanksgiving as her dish! As I’ve said before I love the little things you never miss. Many thanks to you, Sephrenia, and Kleannhouse!

  22. A wonderful ending to a wonderful series. Thank you so much for the glorious journey. A fitting HEA for Eric and Sookie and I love that Pythia got to end Bill.
    I must apologize that I didn’t comment on each and every chapter. But some (most) nights I was reading at 2am and just didn’t have the brain power to think up something relevant to say. But I’ve enjoyed each and every one!
    Thank you so much for the effort and joy you put into your writing. I love everything you do. I’m really looking forward to the third part of B&F. I read somewhere you’re also working on a short? I adore your shorts. Can’t wait!

    1. I hope this will be up as a PDF soon so I can add it to my kindle app! I’ve re-read parts one and two several times 😀

  23. This universe of stories is so wonderful. You have done an incredible job of creating characters and backstories and causing me to reread everything when I would get impatient for the next chapter (mind you I only found the series after you started “United”, so yeah… patience of a flea here!). I am sorry to see it has ended, but wow, what a ride! Thank you for sharing all of it!

  24. This was a fitting end to this truly epic tale. Only wish was that were more cowbell, I mean Pam/Sookie interaction lol. As we say in the Navy, Bravo Zulu!!! xo

  25. Another great ending to an amazing story. I love all your stories and will look forward to whatever the next adventure you bring us.

  26. I really liked the ending and the whole series. It was such a great journey. From Eric not accepting the bonds and E/S learning to love and trust each other. To the battle planning. The whole escape and hiding phase of the story, I loved it all. I liked all the characters and their unique personalities. I think it was fun how the AP had the last laugh with Bill. The ending was a perfect was to conclude this tale. Thank you for this series and story !!!

  27. I was hoping Sookie would end Bill but I like how you wrote his ending – it made me laugh that Pythia was able to finally have some action! I loved the beginning ‘family’ feel and I think you’re right that Bill would have tainted that happiness. They’ve come full circle and moved on, no need for Bill to ever desecrate their sanctuary. It was a wonderful ending, sappy smile inducing stuff. You’ve created wonderful characters in your stories but this one is on par with the Comfortably Numb series. I think that will forever just edge out in front for me, but this is a very close second. I will miss it but I know I’ll re-read the all again anyway. I need to check your PDF copies out so I have something to get me through my impending hospital sentence.

  28. What an amazing story, what an amazing journey, what an amazing writer. I have totally loved this story from the first paragraph to the very last. Thank you for sharing your gift.

  29. I totally enjoyed this journey you took us on, not surprisingly since you never fail to entertain us with your stories. As for the AP killing Bill, I think it was quite appropriate. Most often we view her as someone existing above the fray, dispensing wisdom, but she had a stake in this fight also. She lost a child, gained a child, and so much had been done to one of her descendants since Sookie was of her human line. I can easily see that she would want her own revenge and be able to take it.
    Now I’ll look forward to the start of your next set of adventures. Thanks so much for sharing your talents with us.

  30. Ok, I know I just promised a lengthy review, and I’m still promising it 🙂
    But It’s 12:51am, work is done, and if I’m getting to the gym before my mum leaves in the morning, I’m going to need to be up in… 5hrs!

    So I think I may have to do it at bed time tomorrow night 😉

    See you soon!

  31. OMG! That ending was PERFECT! I’m glad they didn’t have to see Bill at their home. His presence would have tainted it. Plus Pythia got to have a play date with that vile creature and get some payback for her family. A fabulous end to an incredible trilogy. THANK YOU!

  32. I have a thing about WIP.. I try to avoid them because I have the patience of a tasmanian devil and I can not, for the life of me, wait for updates! This is one case where I am absolutely happy that I waited to read until it was done (and I mean the 3 parts)! I would’ve really gone crazy waiting for chapters!

    Having said that, you make it impossible to pick a favorite story, girl! Each on of your work is beautiful in its own way, and I can’t imagine the TB/SVM fandom without you in it! Off to read another one of your complete works now 🙂

  33. I used your PDFs so that I could listen to these three stories at work! I had to come back here to your blog and just say thank you. Thank you for sharing your talent. The story was beyond my expectations!

  34. Wonderful trilogy ! I read it non stop everyday for 10 days in a row … You gave us everything we were hoping for … and much much more ! Many thanks to you, and also to Sephrenia and Kleannhouse . Your good work brought a lot of joy for all of us around the world. Greetings from Paris (France)

  35. I love love love this story..
    I guess im a little bit of a freak, but i really wanted to read about the menses sex. Haha given how Eric was so excited about it.

    1. *ahem* not just you, lol! I was curious too. I mean, books about vampires and humans never touch on it, even though sex is a major part of stories.

  36. Just completed my second read through – this time from start to finish. Wow! Seamless and smooth! All the characters were on point. What beautiful craftsmanship, thank you.

  37. Dangit *sniffle* it’s over! I do love how you let Pythia kill Bill, and not slowly either. I am both grateful I’m done – my boss and my family will be too, lol! – and saddened. Nicely done and many thanks for your work

  38. I really enjoyed this series! Sookie and Eric’s relationship wad very well written. I’m definitely glad Bill finally got it in the end!

  39. I have to say as I’ve since read other things, I sometimes have a hard time keeping this series straight from canon. Your descriptions are so vivid and compelling that it’s hard to believe many of these events and characters weren’t part of the original stories. I’ll find myself thinking “oh, she doesn’t realize yet that this was because of a woven dream” or “maybe that’s because of Eric’s fae heritage.” One of the most touching scenes I loved was when you revealed the footage from Fangtasia that Eric had saved, including that intimate moment following the maenad attack. And thinking of the chase and scene in the parking garage when Eric emerges from the car in all his destructive glory still gives me chills. Elina, Leonie, the Slidell house, the California cabin… so many things that deserve a permanent place in this realm. Thank you again for this treasure!
