We have some sad news to tell you…our good friends over at the Sookieverseblog are “officially” closing down. They posted their last and final post early this morning. We wanted to pass this along – so you can visit them and leave your own parting words and/or cry, like we’re doing.
Here at ESL…we would like to take this opportunity to thank SVB and her mods for all they’ve done for us in the past. I’ve asked my staff to say a little something in their own words - as a final send off to our dear friends.
Okay, girls…let ‘er rip!
I admit I was rather gun shy after visiting some other TB sites…so when I visited SVB, I tended to lurk more than anything. Then they started to show up in my Twitter feed, and I enjoyed reading the Twitter chatter. Then I started reading their book blog posts. They made me feel like I wasn’t alone on why I loved the books and Eric and Sookie. This shouldn’t surprise you…Sunday Skars always made me smile. One of the coolest things about SVB was randomly running into folks at book events. Like I did in Charlotte. I may not have posted in the forum or comments but I always enjoyed their book views. Thank you, and best of luck in your future endeavors.
When I first entered this crazy fandon, it was through Facebook and it was there that I met my first set of Viking Sisters and SVB was one of them. My first set of Viking Lovers were small but we had loud mouths that more than made up for it! Then when I joined the site I met the rest of my sisters and now they are all a part of me for life.
From Sunday Skars to epic fucking rants in TUS and RR and schooling folks on the FB board (R.I.P to the AB and Eric Northman threads where I met my Viking Wenches aka TUS) I will forever cherish those memories. To all the mods and SVB, my hat is off to you for creating such a great internet cafe with one hell of a hidey hole where we talked about laminated lists and Askars ass! To SVB, whose blog we were not supposed to read, you are my “Ambassador of Quan,” and I love you!
SVB, Serena, VL, MAS, Dazed, Ashley and krtmd…I just want to say how much you ladies ROCK! I mean, seriously! As a former moderator of SVB…I got to know these lovely ladies very well. If there’s one thing I’m thankful for is the friendships I’ve made with all of them, and with all of the other Viking sisters I met over there too – including my own staff. SVB had a way of writing blog posts which seemed like she knew what I was thinking, though SVB swears she’s NOT telepathic like Sookie. Who could forget MAS’s recaps? Still some of the BEST recaps I’ve EVER read! My favorite day of the week was Sundays of course, not because True Blood aired – but because I knew I would be drooling over Sunday Skars. The forum was THE place to go to talk about True Blood and/or the books. SVB has always been supportive of us here at ESL too. Most of all…she gave us a place to go in times when we needed support, a place to vent, where you could find out the latest juicy spoilers, or a place to share our thoughts, hopes and dreams. I can only hope ESL will be a 1/4 the success the Sookieverseblog once was. I will never forget the good times we’ve shared or the bad, but one thing is for certain…my life is truly richer because of it. Thank you SVB, et all – wishing you nothing but the best in the future!
To all who visited the Sookieverseblog – please remember…

To SVB and her mods…you may be gone, but you’ll never be forgotten.
Cheers…we salute you!
Goodbye and good luck, fellow Viking sisters!
I think I’m going to go sit in a corner and cry now… :(
