This is a post designed to pimp fics that I’ve found conform with the books, and could easily be inserted as a side story or a whatcouldabeen. Plus, a blurb and no PWP. I’ll add to this when I find a new one, and if the story goes off the rails for the non-completed one, I’ll take it off. I don’t anticipate I’ll have to do that, but I’ve been wrong before. I’m also going to only include ones I know will be updated with some regularity, or that are finished:
ANYTHING by June Smith – CH style with plot and brilliance – absolutely as close to canon as you can get without it being CH.
Some excellent AU fics, where Eric is still a vampire, Sookie still a telepath, but the universe is different:
Cute little one shots:
These AH one shots that are just brilliant pieces of writing:
If it’s AH you’re looking for, with actual aspects of the characters, auxiliary characters and no Sookie bashing, I recommend any of the above authors, but also these rather prolific peeps:
And dese ones with zero suitor bashing, an Eric that shuts up and I can tell they actually like Sookie:
Art museum Sookie ||| New England Sookie ||| New York Sookie ||| Polyandrous Sookie ||| Music Sookie ||| Criminologist Sookie ||| Actress Sookie with my favourite Felipe ever ||| Depression Era Sookie ||| Teacher Sookie ||| Post-War Sookie
Oh, and I didn’t include it above, but the first fic I read and loved because I could recognise book canon:
Changing It All – it hasn’t been updated in a while, but it’s why I registered – to leave a review.
And if you ever wanted a look inside the mind of the man I talk about here sometimes, called Mr. Minty:
The Secret History of the Vampire Dixie Bill – he’ll even send a review reply if I badger him enough. 😀
If you exhaust that, there’s always my favourites list at Fanfic.net, which I go through periodically and cull and trim. But this is stuff I would re-read with much enjoyment.
