Yes, of course Waiting-for-Deadlocked is killing me. These last few days are absolute killers. Any time I see the word “spoilers” I am on it so fast. 😀 I foresee that my next post will probably be about the new book. Once I get it, I’m sitting down for a quick and dirty reading because I can’t stand to wait, then an excited squee that I got my fix for the year, then a quick skim over again to make notes, and then posting. 😀 And then the umpteen-bazillion careful re-reads that will mean I can actually weight every word. Oh, and sticking here to avoid the inevitable Sookie and CH hate. I’m doing my best to avoid it right now.
This is just a tiny little post about my thoughts of things. Sometimes there’s a little interaction, and it makes me think about things, and try some deductive reasoning. One of CH’s great strengths is her understanding of characters, so it’s exciting to have an author that you’re able to do it with.
I know that one of the predominant themes is that Sookie being mortal will ruin Eric and Sookie’s relationship. Eric will be forced to leave her for his own emotional wellbeing, or be forced to blib blab blib Meet the Sun blah. In turn, the problems are seen from Sookie’s side that Eric will not be able to give Sookie babies, and therefore, because that’s what she says she’s always dreamed of, she’ll leave him. But apparently, contrary to logic, Sookie has spent years having sex with Eric even though he can’t have children, and her biological clock has been ticking away. If she wants to have babies, damn, she’s doing it wrong by insisting on dating Eric.
I always thought that Sookie’s refusal to become a vampire was actually a huge favour to Eric. It’s what helps him have a relationship with a woman without ballsing it up. Here’s why.
