12/10: Quopic of the Day

For today’s Quopic of the Day, we wanted to use a quote from the books and from the show!

We hope you like them!

Here’s the Quopic of the Day for December 10th!

While True Blood Season 4 didn’t end up being as great as we’d hoped…there were still a number of moments all of us should treasure, like the one pictured above!

I didn’t think we would have so many scenes this past season, where Eric and Sookie were sharing sweet conversations, but we did!

And now for a similar conversation from the books…

“But humans kill other humans all the time. And they don’t even need to eat them or drink their blood.”
“Not all humans.”
“True enough,” he said. “We vampires are all murderers.”
“But in a way, you’re like lions.”
Eric looked astonished. “Lions?” he said weakly.
“Lions all kill stuff.” At the moment, this idea seemed like an inspiration. “So you’re predators, like lions and raptors. But you use what you kill. You have to kill to eat.”
“The catch in that comforting theory being that we look almost exactly like you. And we used to be you. And we can love you, as well as feed off you. You could hardly say the lion wanted to caress the antelope.”
Suddenly there was something in the air that hadn’t been there the moment before. I felt a little like an antelope that was being stalked—by a lion that was a deviant.
I’d felt more comfortable when I was taking care of a terrified victim.

~Book 4, Dead To The World

 

I loved their whole conversation in front of the fireplace, after Eric lost his memory in the books! ♥

True Blood tried to capture it, but did a poor job, IMO. There could have been more, but at least we had a few scenes that showcased some of their great convos from the books!

  1. I never knew about Sookie Stackhouse or Eric Northman till after
    Season 1 aired,then I got to know them.
    I guess you could say I was a tad biased,due to the fact that I see
    the faces of Anna Paquin & Alexander Skarsgard and I hear them
    talking to me as I read the words of Charlaine Harris.

    Charlaine Harris’s books were different from what I was seeing on
    HBO’s TrueBlood,the show is hotter than the books.
    Especially,the scenes between Eric Northman & Sookie Stackhouse!
    William Thomas Compton III puts me to sleep.
    In the books and in the show.~thought I do like his portrayer
    Stephen Moyer, I can’t stand William Thomas Compton III.

    To any newcomer to the show, I suggest they read the books.
    Reason I say this is you need to know the books to watch the show.
    I’m also a reader of what is known as “Fanfiction”.
    I feel it’s a very important part of the mixture that makes “TrueBlood”.
    One fanfiction in particular, Morgain Swann’s “Late!!!”.
    It fills in many of the holes that Charlaine Harris leaves in the telling
    of her stories she’s written,Ms.Swann connects the dots for us.
    The story can be found at http://www.fanfiction.net
    Look for it under “Author’s”.

    We have known that Eric Northman has loved Sookie Stackhouse
    since Season 1,Episode 4,Escape from the Dragon House.
    The first time he laid eyes on her you could see the question
    forming in his brain “Where do I know this girl from”????
    There was an instant attraction between them!.
    Sookie wanted to go run off with Eric but felt compelled to
    stay with William Thomas Compton III.
    Eric Northman knew that Sookie would be his after she
    alerted him to the raid by the cops.
    *She will be MINE !!! * Eric Northman thought as he glided off
    into the warm Summer air.

  2. I loved that scene on the couch between Eric and Sookie. So sweet, just wish it had been longer

  3. True Blood made Eric too soft whereas in the books, he still had a little edge but it was still great seeing Sookie with Eric. I like Bill but Eric just takes the icing.

  4. so romantic !

  5. While the scene from S4 above wasn’t quite as dangerously sexy as the book? It did do something else. It drew a very clear distinction between Bill and Eric. Not that the distinctions didn’t already exist BUT it clearly set out to prove that Eric placed Sookie’s interests above his own to the point that he would leave before allowing his influence to do her harm.

    We’ve seen how Bill handles this. He pleads. He cries. He places his own redemption in the hands of Sookie such that he won’t leave and he would do her harm and stay with her rather than leave to protect her. Hmm. Selfish to the core.

    Tell me again who is the better vampire?

  6. ERIC IS THE BETTER VAMPIRE . THESE QUOPICS ARE SO HEART FELT SO WARMING SO ROMANTIC . I LOVE THE WAY HE LOOKS AT SOOKIE DEAD IN HER EYES WHEN HE TALKS TO HER AND SHE DO THE SAME . HE LOVED HER FROM SEASON 1 EPISODE 4 WHEN HE FIRST MET HER AND DID NOT NEED A BLOOD BOND THEN IT WAS A INSTANT ATTRACTION .. HE NOW IS HEAD OVER HEELS IN LOVE WITH HER NOW . I`M TEAM ERIC ALL THE WAY ……………ERIC SAY SOOKIE WILL BE HIS …..I LOVE ALL THE CONVERSATIONS THEY HAD THE TALKS ARE THEM REALLY GETTING TO KNOW ONE ANOTHER ERIC WAS DATING SOOKIE OUTSIDE BILL /SOOOKIE RELATIONSHIP YUCK THAT`S WHY HE WAS COMING AROUND SO MUCH HE HAD GOTTEN TO KNOW HER WELL . I AM GLAD HE DID …. ERIC WOULD NOT DRAIN HER FOR HER BLOOD LIKE BILL AND PRETEND TO LOVE HER LIKE QUEEN BEEL DID IN THE BEGINNING . I DO BELIEVE BILL WILL TRY TO BETRAY ERIC AGAIN THIS SEASON …… IAM HAPPY THAT ERIC MADE LOVE TO SOOKIE AND NOT F**K HER LIKE HE DID WITH YVETTA IN SEASON 3. THEY GAVE THEIR SELF COMPLETELY TO EACH OTHER …… SEASON 4 DIDN`T DO JUSTICE IT SHOULD BUT THE SEASON WAS OKAY . THANKS AGAIN FOR ALL THE QUOPICS LOVIONG ALL OF THEM I SAED ALL OF THEM I GET ..

  7. I agree TB did a rather poor job with season 4 in as much as the show is too invested in the Bill character while in the books he becomes a rather peripheral character in the fourth book. I believe AB and in many ways his writing staff do not fully understand nor know how to handle the character of Eric and perhaps that is the reason they try so hard to minimize him. I think it is only because of Alex’s acting talent that he has been able to get the best handle on his character and has developed Eric to be intriguing and fully developed far beyond all of the others on the show in spite of AB.

  8. I still feel that S4 let us down.
