The New Year is here, time to put 2013, that book I didn’t read and True Blood Season 6 into the archives of sookieverse history.
Whilst we will all no doubt be making New Year’s Resolutions that we haven’t a chance of keeping, we thought it would be a good time to have a first stab at what we are hoping for in the coming year.
What I want for 2014 is some great television and not just True Blood. Since I mentioned True Blood though, I just want a good ending for Eric, an ending that makes sense with who and what he is. Eric is all about those he loves and he would never leave them behind for a long period of time to suffer some cruel fate. I would love to see him in the action of what these writers plan to bring us in the final season and saving those he loves. That is how Eric rolls and I also would like to see him really kick Bill’s ass if not kill him altogether. Since Killing Bill will not be an option, the only alternative that I can hope for is that Bill will finally get what is coming to him for everything he has done wrong. In other words, no redemption.
Since that won’t happen either, the best I can do is hope that I don’t have to gauge my eyes out over ridiculous plots that might end up making no sense. I truly hope that True Blood goes out with a bang rather than just a slight sizzle. Once again, I want to be blown away but I won’t hold my breath for this show has notoriously let me down in the past. For me, it is all about Eric and if he is given something really juicy and does some epic shit, then I will be okay. But if he is put in a corner, there will be munity. LOL
I am looking forward to all the shows coming back from their mid-season finales and for the start of Downton Abbey here in the states as I love the show. The Walking Dead is going to be awesome. A new series called Outlander will be starting soon on Starz and I cannot wait to see one of my favorite book series come to life and it will be a very faithful adaptation of a great series.
I have several books coming out that I just cannot wait to devour. Chloe Neill’s ‘Wild Things’ another book in the beloved Chicagoland Vampire series. The final book in the ‘All Souls Trilogy’ by Deborah Harkness and you gotta love Matthew and Diana. The next book in the Outlander series by Diana Gabaldon….SQUEEEEEE! So much goodness is coming my way and I am looking forward to it.
I just hope that everyone in the fandom can get along in this final year, and I want much the same for the conclusion of the show as all the other Eric fans do, a good storyline for the Viking and a decent ending.
What do I want from 2014? Peace on Earth…. Or in the fandom. Ok, I admit its a slim chance after all of these years. But I just had to ask. As for True Blood… just give me a decent Eric story line… where he is un-dead and not finally dead. My more realistic wishes for 2014 would be for Alex to have a fantastic year with all of his future projects. For us to be happy and healthy…. and not loose too much hair :)
I want to make the absolute most of True Blood’s final year. I want to have fun. I hope that everyone who decides to watch the last season will be entertained and look back on True Blood with at least some kind of affection, I hope Eric Northman finishes the series on top, I hope he is happy and loved, preferably by Sookie, but if by someone else then I want to see the writers convince us that Eric is okay with this, I want to see Eric, Pam, Tara and Willa as a loving family, I want Andy and Holly to live HEA, I want Bill and Alcide to disappear, I want lots of naked Eric (Yes, I’m very shallow and I’m not ashamed of it), I also want at least one more Eric sex scene, but most of all I want to savour every single second the Viking Vampire God graces our screens before he leaves our lives forever!
On behalf of everyone here at E&SL, I would like to wish you all a terrific, happy and healthy 2014!
Here’s to you and for one very last time, to a good year ahead for Eric Northman!
When Erika started this little blog way back in September 2009, as a safe place for Eric/Sookie shippers to be able to visit and speak their minds, I’m pretty sure she had no idea just how big Team Eric would continue to grow. We’ve come this far and now we are determined to see it through, and we hope you all will too, whether you are one of the 100s who regularly visit just to enjoy the blog, or one of our loyal and lively commenters, we really, really appreciate you sharing in this crazy fandom with us. We had a record breaking year last year, so let’s try and do it all over again!
And don’t forget to let us know what you are hoping for from 2014 in the comments below.
