Okay, so one of the other things that polled well was surprise, surprise, a post about Eric and Sookie. AoifeNZ decided it would be about moving in. Blame her if you don’t like it, and then blame yourself for not commenting with an alternate view – it’s really your own fault. This is an easy Christmas present I have time to trot out while I’m feeling lazy and full and my brain isn’t working so well.
I’m going to deal with the spectre of Eric and Sookie living together. I know in fanfic, Sookie often uproots her entire life, goes to Eric and it’s smooth as – but this is fantasy, and often unsatisfying writing. It has to be smooth, cause house hassles don’t have any boning in them. In all fairness, doormat Sookie doesn’t have anything to say about anything, so moving house isn’t going to make her open her submissive mousey mouth; and some of these writers haven’t lived with anyone else, so they don’t know….or they just do what their husbands tell them.
I must say, that I’m pretty sure that Sookie will move in with Eric – but when I look at the problems it presents, I have a little doubt. I would say I’m about eighty percent sure that Sookie’s going to move in with him – but this is not a hundred percent.
