3/31 Quopic Of The Day

In the run up to Deadlocked,  many of us are busy  doing the obligatory Sookie Stackhouse re-read, to remind ourselves of all the great Eric and Sookie moments gone by as we look forward to the no doubt very dramatic ones that are soon to come. I’m currently up to From Dead To Worse, and the wonderful scene where Eric’s memories come flooding back to him whilst in the bedroom at Sookie’s home.

“I trudged back to my bedroom and pushed the door open, intending to wash my face or brush my teeth or make some stab at smoothing my hair, because I thought it might make me feel a little less trampled.
Eric was sitting on my bed, his face buried in his hands. He looked up at me as I entered, and he looked shocked. Well, no wonder, what with the very thorough takeover and traumatic changing of the guard.
Sitting here on your bed, smelling your scent,” he said in a voice so low I had to strain to hear it.
Sookie . . . I remember everything.”
Oh, hell,” I said, and went in the bathroom and shut the door. I brushed my hair and my teeth and scrubbed my face, but I had to come out. I was being as cowardly as Quinn if I didn’t face the vampire.
Eric started talking the minute I emerged. “I can’t believe I—”
Yeah, yeah, I know, loved a mere human, made all those promises, was as sweet as pie and wanted to stay with me forever,” I muttered. Surely there was a shortcut we could take through this scene.
I can’t believe I felt something so strongly and was so happy for the first time in hundreds of years,” Eric said with some dignity. “Give me some credit for that, too.”

Just one of the many glorious moments in this amazing book, definitely one of my favorites of the entire series.

And there is now only 31 days to go until Deadlocked. Hopefully by rereading the series and looking out for some new True Blood promos full of yummy viking goodness I might manage not to go completely insane before May 1st, but there again I might not.

  1. This is also one of the scenes that underscores their inability to have a conversation about what happened between them. And it’s both of them, but I think if Sookie had not been so defensive here, they would have had that “talk”. CH is the master of writing avoidance for these two. And I still love them and hope that the last book won’t break my heart..(and I’m re-reading too).

    • This is definitely a device that Charlaine enjoys using, this inability to talk things out, and, as it is one of the obstacles that stands in their way, I think we will get it right to the final book, just keep us all full of angst for another year!

  2. Thanks Evie! *sighs* This is one of my favorite scenes in FDTW! :)

    I agree too…Eric and Sookie have major miscommunication/avoidance issues and CH writes it like a pro! Ah, the angst! One of the many things I love about Eric and Sookie!

  3. I loved how HBO/Alan Ball shot this scene in TrueBlood.
    “Sookie, I remember everything,I remember it all”
    “I remember US,I remember making love to you,
    I remember holding you~I LOVE YOU!!”
    “Look deep into my eyes~can’t you still see me
    inside of my eyes,the Eric you fell in love with
    is still here ~he’s always been here”
    “I’ve just been afraid to let the softer side
    of Eric be seen ~I didn’t want to appear weak”

    “I Love you,I always will love you”
    “What’s the matter,tell me?”
    “I still love Bill”.

    Eric’s heart broke into a million pieces!
    I can’t stand this part of this scene!!!

    • The True Blood scene is a perfect example of snatching defeat from the jaws of victory. I loved what Eric said after getting his memory back (certainly not SVM canon at all of course)…and then AB had to throw Eric under the bus with his whole “Sookie & Bill are soulmates” crap leading to her professing her love for Bill.aiaiaiaia

      • That’s what pisses me off about the show, AB finally gives us what we want, but then takes it away a second later. Their first kiss comes to mind that was ruined by Eric locking her in the dungeon, and let’s not forget the rat reveal, even though everyone else obviously did. He might as well have never done that at all.

      • Oh yes…it always seems like whenever there is something for us to celebrate…AB turns it around and slaps us in the face. Same with the S4 scene when Eric and Sookie finally make love, he HAD to have the scene switch to Beehl’s fugly face, taking me totally out of the moment! ARGH! My question is this…why, why, WHY?? Can’t we have Eric and Sookie moments totally to ourselves? I think that’s why so many are pissed off…we waited 4 seasons for this, and it was ruined. Thanks AB (insert sarcasm)!

        • Exactly, that’s another one that totally pissed me off. Why do we need to see his sad pathetic face during our Eric/Sookie scenes? Are we supposed to feel sorry for him? Sorry, AB, all you’re doing is making Bill look even more lame. So, yeah, job well done.

  4. She should have said Eric i am yours forever . that was all she had to say look at him look at Bill i am going for Eric

  5. One of my favourite scenes in the book. And in TB, it really didn’t make sense after being so “in love” with Eric, exchanging blood and berating Bill for only looking after his own self-interest, Sookie not only say she loves Bill but that she doesn’t want to be with Eric!

  6. I can’t even comment on this without getting pissed of all over again. AB is laughing at us all. It makes me sick. I know season 5 is going to be more of the same . Queen Beehl to the rescue. Gag me with a spoon!

  7. C. Harris loves Eric like the rest of us…. A. Ball loves Bill….. pffftt….

    • Unless she’s been teasing us this whole time, she doesn’t seem to love Eric as much. That’s what worries me.
