Working Title: Moments Denied (I may change this...) This is part one of... probably three? It takes place immediately following A Few Good Men. I felt like we needed more of Elena's reaction of the events of the episode, as well as the fallout of her phone call with Isobel. Of course, Damon needs to stop by, too... 


So, here goes the fic...Collapse )


Hate it? Love it? OOC? Should I continue? All constructive comments welcome.

I am stalking the LJ's of some of my favorite fanfic writers and reading their reviews/reactions to this season's episodes.

I will be re-watching and doing my own review eventually.

This one from dimestore_romeo won the best quote ever award: "But whenever I watch this all I want is more Pam and Eric and for someone to punch Bill in the face."

Heh. Awesome.

One of the reasons that the books are better than the show, that Eric rocks and that Charlaine is a goddess:

"Why did they come after you like that?"
"Jerry Falcon."
"Oh," said Bill, a different note in his voice. "Oh, yes. I've encountered him. In the torture room. He is first on my list."
"Well, you can cross him off," Eric said. "Alcide and Sookie disposed of his body in the woods yesterday."
"Did this Alcide kill him?" Bill looked down at me, reconsidered. "Or Sookie?"
"He says no. They found the corpse in the closet of Alcide's apartment, and they hatched a plan to hide his remains." Eric sounded like that had been kind of cute of us.
"My Sookie hid a corpse?"
"I don't think you can be too sure about that possessive pronoun."
"Where did you learn that term, Northman?"
"I took 'English as a Second Language' at a community college in the seventies."
Bill said, "She is mine."
I wondered if my hands would move. They would. I raised both of them, making an unmistakable one-fingered gesture.
Eric laughed, and Bill said, "Sookie!" in shock and admonishment.
"I think that Sookie is telling us she belongs to herself," Eric said softly.

I was searching through old files on my computer and happened upon an AIM conversation I'd saved that included this away message (which made me laugh):

You know you're obsessed with LABYRINTH when...
You overdose on peaches, hoping to hallucinate about a ballroom.
When someone says, "It's not fair!" you say, "You say that so often. I wonder what your basis for comparison is."
Every time you see a worm, you stop and wait for it to invite you to tea.
You believe Jareth exists.
You'd love to date him.
You invoke the help of the goblins constantly.
You invoke the help of Jareth constantly.
You threaten to do something really bad when it doesn't work.
At a David Bowie concert, you jump up and down screaming, "I love you, Jareth!"
You write letters to David Bowie with TO THE GOBLIN KING on the envelope.
Then you mail them.

Guess I'm in trouble...

So, I do like Vampire Bill better in the series than I do in the books. To be completely honest, he pisses me off in the books. I find him a more interesting, more sympathetic character in the series - in part, I think, because I know what a complete lying bastard he turns out to be in the books but somehow in the show I'm actually convinced that he feels conflicted and remorseful about being compelled to be a lying bastard. Does that make sense?

So - yes. I feel bad for Bill. But he annoys me. Mildly boring, ineffectual men offend me, even if they are vampires. Eric is universally cooler, sexier and more interesting. I can respect ruthless and powerful, even if he is a bastard. At least he's a bastard because it suits his purposes - not because someone more powerful put him up to it.

Barry is more of a petulant and whiny than I expected. He's perfectly cast and plays his part well, however. I hope they keep him around.

Poor Tara. I feel so terrible for her. Mean, manipulative Maryann. I wanted to like her, because I appreciate her sentiments, but I can't overlook the way she's using Tara. Has the woman no shame? Dressing up like Gran and "waiting up?" Srsly? Bitch.

Eggs is still the hottest black man I've ever seen. Hands down.

Eric's whole being turned flashback was cool, compelling and impressively done. I can see Godric as Eric's maker, even though it's technically a violation of canon.

"Where ever I am... there will always be women." How true. Even 1000 years later. *sigh*
"What's in it for me?" Oh, god. So totally Eric. This was perfect.
"Godric is my maker." What an intensely delivered confession. I love Eric's facial expression, here.

Ugh - Jason and Sarah. We all knew this was coming. Bo-ring. Please, Alan, move this shit along already. They couldn've hooked up two episodes ago and it would have been just as predictable but at least then we'd be further ahead in this plot. Enough already, kthx.

Yay - Lafayette is back. Can't wait to see what the vamps have in store for him now. Awesome subplot. So glad he's still with us.

Pool table sex is very hot. Sam is also. Quite hot. Daphne. Eh, well, she'll do.

"Well I would not be satisfied. Not one bit." Yay, sexually assertive southern women rock. Of course, nothing compares to the first episode. That's the winner, hands down.

OMG, Lorena! She's so deliciously sexy. I was totally surprised by this 'cause they're bringing her in way, way earlier than expected, but it works to set up future events. I'm glad they're following this plot line. She's so delightfully evil. So, Eric calls in Lorena to eliminate Bill as an obstacle to his dominion over Sookie. Brilliant - makes sense. We never would have known about this in the books, even if it happened. If you thought Bill was angsty and melodramatic before... LOL, just wait.

Also, I have my suspicions that Jessica may not be with us for very long. Just a hint of a suspicion - but it's there. Which would be sad, 'cause I very much want to see cute vamp/human puppy love between her and Hoyt.

So, I'm starting to see how the season is going to follow the books in general format but I still enjoy the variations. Alan Ball is particularly inventive.

I still demand my orgy.

That is all.

Yup - Barry running away is still the most hilarious thing I've ever seen.

So - I've had the last episode of True Blood playing pretty much constantly on my DVR just as background noise as I do housework and play around on the computer and every single time poor Barry takes off running down the hallway in terror I can't help but laugh hysterically. It's the funniest thing I've ever seen.

Found in the youtube comments of "The Forgotten People" - a song featured on True Blood's latest episode:

"I thank god of TB's existence to keep vampires interesting, and denying the Twilight series attempts of turning them into complete pansies that sparkle in the sunlight. I'm assuming the cause of the sparkling is due to their raiding of Hot Topic's make-up section."

Bahaha.
