Summary:

(AU) Vampires have been “out” since 1962 and are a “normal” facet of life.  Godric, always a visionary, founded the Vampire Historical Society (VHS)—as well as a newspaper called The Dallas Moon.  After his child demonstrates apathy towards humans, Godric punishes Eric by making him respond to the letters that are sent to The Moon.  What will happen when he receives a letter from an 8-year-old girl named Sookie Virginia Stackhouse, asking if there’s a Santa Claus?

Yes, Sookie

What if Sookie was given the chance to change her story with Supernaturals? What if she had full knowledge of the events that could come to pass? Could she save the people she loved the second time around? Would she look to anyone in the Supernatural world for help—or would she attempt to avoid that world altogether? Yep—I'm trying my hand at the time travel genre; it's been done before, but I've not seen the device used after the end of Dead Ever After (Note: This story picks up a little more than a year after Dead Ever After.) (E/S eventually)

Eric and Sookie must adjust to being the parents of an adult as Hunter comes of age and finds love of his own with Emma.  How will the Viking vampire and the fairy deal with new threats when their son becomes the target?  Earned is the third main part of the Back & Forth Universe, which began with Back & Forth and continued with Come Back to Me (with Sojourn being an interlude set within the timeframe of Come Back to Me).  Those stories should be read before this one.

given unsought

 

Summary: When Sookie finally tells Eric about what happened when his memory was taken away by Marnie's spell, the vampire notes that she spent more time talking about Debbie's demise than any relationship they had. And he realizes something: Sookie doesn't trust him not to harm her with the information about Debbie. Even though Eric is new at love, he knows that it cannot flourish without trust, so he cuts ties with her and eventually develops a relationship with another. What will happen when Sookie realizes that she made a mistake? What will happen when it is she who must fight for love which is unsought?

Summary: Set at the end of True Blood, Season 4, what if it wasn’t Tara whom Debbie Pelt killed? What if it was Sookie? (A vampire-Sookie story & a re-imagining of Season 5)

 

Context: Sookie has just left Eric and Bill at the end of Season 4, telling them that she can’t be with either one of them. But she doesn’t linger at Bill’s door very long. Instead, she visits Gran’s grave. Instead of the fairies coming for her, an old foe shows up.

 

Beta: Kleannhouse (“the magnificent”)

 

Inspiration: Recently, I snagged one of Sephrenia’s banners for adoption.

Summary:

bombshell

Bombshell begins in the middle of the events of All Together Dead, right after Andre had agreed to let Eric bond with Sookie—rather than doing it himself.  It is inspired by the following prompt by Switbo: “Personally, I was always appalled that after Eric saves [Sookie] from being bonded to Andre by letting her bond to him instead, she never so much as thanks him from keeping her out of Andre’s clutches and they never really talk about what the blood bond means. As a ‘proper Southern woman’ as she always claims to be, how she could fail to thank him for saving her always galled me. And he’s too intelligent to fail to explain to her exactly what the bond means. Her not knowing is dangerous for both of them (as becomes obvious in later books).
