Oh my god. The melodrama, rants and insanity. If you’re not a spoilers type person, I would hope you are well away from the internet now, because people are losing their damn minds about the spoilers and just posting them anywhere. Including at random on CH’s facebook page. I’m going to warn you here, and put it behind the cut. Don’t read if you don’t know the spoilers, and don’t keep going if you don’t want to hear frank discussion of the spoilers…and the reaction to those spoilers.
TURN ASUNDER NOW LITTLE COMRADE NON-SPOILARATCHIKS
Well, if you’ve been watching any of this drama, you’ll have seen people losing their damn minds, which luckily hasn’t been happening here. It’s good to be small and smelly and out of the way, because that means zero mind-losing in my comments. I got an email today with more fleshed out details on the spoilers, and I have to say, these sound legit. Still don’t be one hundred percent relying on them though – remember – no one cried over Bobby.
Of course, now there’s all kinds of resulting drama, including calls for fanfiction. Well, if that’s what you want, there’s fucking plenty of E/S fanfic. Some of it’s good, but much of it is where Sookie is bashed according to what the writer wants. I’m sure that the fanfics that come out now (Fanfic.net is down for me right now) will really hammer the poor girl into the ground, and probably have some random Southern writer being injured or killed. Which is kinda scary, but this fandom has had members I’ve read previously who threatened to go to CH’s house and burn it down.
What I will say though, is that I’ve read it a few times in comments and on RF forum where I go to chat without having to write lotsa words. It is unfair to get spoiled and then complain there’s no build up. Duh. You skipped to the end. Of course there’s no freaking build up. That’s like watching Gone with the Wind, establishing the characters, pausing the movie, hearing that Rhett leaves Scarlet, and then complaining that there’s no build up. Well, duh, you just skipped ahead 3 hours dude. Of course there isn’t.
I’m going to share what was emailed to me under a further spoiler cut – just so if you don’t want to know more details, you can choose not to read. I trust you all not to lose your damn minds in my comments, but if there are any lurking CH haters or Sookie haters who came here to rage and blame, please don’t. You all have the rest of the fandom. I’m still looking forward to the end and how this all plays out.
SORRY WORDPRESS PEEPS. YOU’LL HAVE TO COME TO MY JOURNAL FOR THIS BIT. WP DOESN’T HAVE A SPOILER TAG. I DON’T WANT TO ACCIDENTALLY SPOIL YOU. Here.
Now, I have far more than this, that actually spoils most of the plot. I just put the minimal and relevant things up here so that you could see the relevant bits. If you want more than these pertinent details, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll give you the full screed. Be aware, it will tell you about all the other sub-plots etc. Most of you here have ma email, so just think about whether you want to know all these details. I personally never mind because it’s always been about the twisty turny ways to get there. The nuances etc.
I would note too that there’s a lot of talk about how Eric is raped and a slave because he married Freyda. Ain’t nothing about that in these spoilers. Considering the quote of what Pam said, and the two spoilers above it, well, that’s a fucking radical interpretation of the text, and part of the whole St. Eric phenomenon. Just cause you don’t want him to marry Freyda doesn’t mean it’s not in the text that he was willing. As I’ve pointed out before, sounds like Eric has more of a choice – even Eric talks about it as a choice. I think he chose wrong, but it’s not as if he didn’t have clear choices on what to be – and hence the angst and delay.
And just to end it on a happier note, here’s my mockup (that I sent to a friend of mine) of what people think the ending should look like. Coming to a million fucking fanfics soon:
