1/14: Quopic of the Day

Hey Eric & Sookie Lovers! :)

Oops, I made a typo yesterday when I posted the Quopic of the Day. :oops: It was supposed to be for the 13th and I posted it as the 12th! Me=bad. Hope you will overlook it…

Here’s the Quopic of the Day for Jan. 14th! Ha! I got it right this time! LOL

“We could go back,” he said. In the dome light of the car, his face looked hard as stone. “We could go back to your house. I can stay with you always. We can know each other’s bodies in every way, night after night. I could love you.” His nostrils flared, and he looked suddenly proud. “I could work. You would not be poor. I would help you.”
“Sounds like a marriage,” I said, trying to lighten the atmosphere. But my voice was too shaky.
“Yes,” he said.
And he would never be himself again. He would be a false version of Eric, an Eric cheated out of his true life. Providing our relationship (such as it was) lasted, he would stay the same; but I wouldn’t. Enough with the negative thinking, Sookie, I told myself. I would be a total idiot to pass up living with this gorgeous creature for however long. We actually had a good time together, and I enjoyed Eric’s sense of humor and his company, to say nothing of his lovemaking. Now that he’d lost his memory, he was lots of uncomplicated fun.
And that was the fly in the ointment. We would have a counterfeit relationship, because this was the counterfeit Eric. I’d come full loop.

This quote is from Book 4: Dead To The World! :D

Sounds like Sookie realized how much she cared for Eric…both Erics. While it was obvious to us – she was in love with Amnesia Eric – I think it also proves (without a doubt)…that she was in love with the Real Eric too. Who would want a replica – when you could have the real thing? A Viking vampire sheriff, who had always made it plainly obvious how much he wanted her in his bed before his memory was erased.  It had never been a secret to her. All she would have to do is agree to sleep with him and he was hers. <<–LUCKY GIRL!

This quote proves that there were some things about the Real Eric that attracted her too.

It was bittersweet in a way, because you knew Eric would have his old memories returned and their intimate relationship (at this point in their love story) would soon end. It’s like the old saying…‘You don’t know what you really have, until it’s gone.‘ I’m sure we all have moments like those in our every day lives.

In Sookie’s case, she realized that not only would it not be fair to Eric – it wouldn’t be fair to herself either. She wants the real deal or nothing at all.

What do you think?

  1. Wow….I loved this part of Book 4. You have described my feelings exactly where Eric and Sookie were concerned at this point in their lives. Makes one want to cry! Sigh….

  2. Sookie knows deep down that she cares for Eric and he
    knows deep down in his soul,whatever’s left of it that
    he loves Sookie~Both of them are afraid of admitting their feelings toward one another.
    Sookie has known that she never wants to see Eric hurt.
    She worries about him being staked.She’d suffer if he
    ever was severly hurt. And the same goes for Eric,that
    is why he reacted that way when he came to her house in
    Season 3 and told her about the V addicted werewolves.
    He knows that the wolves could kill her.
    And she must be protected from them.
    But Eric’s wrestling with his real feelings for Sookie.
    He loves her~this is the first real love he has had in
    over more than two centuries!.

  3. I think you’re absolutely right. It has to be real or not at all. This was a moment in the books where my respect for Sookie went up even more because how unbelievably tempting and easy it would be to say yes to that. The fact that she had the strength and integrity to say no, for both their sakes, speaks volumes about her character.

  4. I agree with Sookie. I would rather have the real Eric or not at all.
