Sookieverse Blog Counts Down with Sookie & Eric in Book 4

By  |  4 Comments

The Sookieverse Blog is counting down the days until True Blood season 4 premieres by highlighting various elements of the fourth book in the Southern Vampire Mysteries series, Dead to the World. Today’s post kicks things off with their top 10 favorite Sookie/Eric ‘shipper moments:

Sookie’s Moment of Clarity

“Let me go home with you. I don’t know them,” Eric said, his voice low and almost pleading. I hurt
inside when Eric said something that was so contrary to his normal personality. Or was I seeing Eric’s true nature? Was his flash and assurance something he’d assumed, like another skin, over the years?

Why we love it: Because it shows that after spending time with Eric in his cursed state, Sookie understands that this Eric is not an imposter. Yes, he is different – but the Eric she is seeing now was simply buried by experience, he is not “new”. He’s not an invention, or a trick, or a false representation. Sookie has a series of smaller revelations about Eric’s true nature in DTTW, but this is the “big one”. She clearly enunciates everything Harris went to pains to demonstrate with Eric’s amnesia arc.

    That’s why i love SVB so much and i think is by far the best place to discuss about the books and True Blood too. This site and SVB are probably the only two sites who let you speak and even express your opinion without judging you or kicking you.
    These place nees to be protected, they are rare pearls and SVB is a pearl IMO.

    Thank u for posting this ^^

    I, also, really enjoyed the link… I have visited that site before, but now I think that I will make more frequent stops… Quite entertaining and I love the lil dissapproving rant of slaughter for season 2 – book 2. (Not that I agree… well, I do.) -hehe- but it was funny… and I loved reflecting on those special moments between Eric and Sookie.



    Oh, oh… and the comparison/mirrored situation links of story lines that I saw on the site was also interesting to peek at… Great stuff.
