I’ve only been following the behind-the-scenes aspect of True Blood for about a year, so I don’t know how the normal True Blood filming schedule works. But I have noticed that ASkars was in NYC (only an hour from me! Oh, the pain of so near and yet so far!) two weeks ago and now has shown up for a lunch date with what appears to be his buddy Fares Fares with a pretty heavy scruff on his chin. (Check the story out — with an entire gallery of bearded ASkars) at Just Jared!) Could this mean he hasn’t been filming for the last two weeks? And if so, why not? Anyone know if TB normally has a lull the last couple of weeks of February — or six weeks into the filming schedule or something? Or is he not filming while growing facial hair for Eric’s sake or something like that?
I know, I’m probably reading too much into his not having shaved in a few days. But, seriously, any of you guys have a better sense of what is normal for this stage of seasonal filming?
I confess: I actually forgot about this because I had so many kind reviews (both pro and con) for my last chapter, but yet another unsigned bitter post tonight reminded me that I had not formally closed the Misery!Guest poll. And we do have a winner for “representative post” that will remain up while the rest are deleted. It is…
9:53 p.m. I’m done reading this story. I ask you NOT to make Eric as Tara’s maker but you didn’t listen and just did what you wanted anyways. You’ve obviously do not care what your readers think, so I will not continue on with this story.
I do kind of like this one because I appreciate the irony that fanfiction is and always has been about a writer “just doing what [they] want” — or what else was the point?
And just a heads up if you read my stories on fanfiction.net: after yet another “attack review” that was (unsurprisingly) unsigned, I’ve decided to make my personal policy on ff.net reviews explicit. You can write whatever you want to, positive or negative, and I’ll leave it up if you sign it. But people who are too cowardly to take responsibility for their viewpoint and hide behind the “Guest” log-in just to attack will have their “review” removed. I don’t see why I have to allow people to act like trolls when I’m doing this for fun. Fanfiction writing doesn’t pay me enough to put up with that. ;-P
And, again, big shout out to those who, even if you disagree with something I do in a story express that disagreement like civil people.
Eric and Sookie Lovers have pointed out that Amazon now has a summary up of After Dead, the coda to the Sookie Stackhouse books which will be released in October 2014. Here’s the description:
Dead Ever After marked the end of the Sookie Stackhouse novels—a series that garnered millions of fans and spawned the hit HBO television show True Blood. It also stoked a hunger that will never die…a hunger to know what happened next.
With characters arranged alphabetically—from the Ancient Pythoness to Bethany Zanelli—bestselling author Charlaine Harris takes fans into the future of their favorite residents of Bon Temps and environs. You’ll learn how Michele and Jason’s marriage fared, what happened to Sookie’s cousin Hunter, and whether Tara and JB’s twins grew up to be solid citizens.
This coda provides the answers to your lingering questions—including details of Sookie’s own happily-ever-after…
So, I guess we can assume Sookie does have a happily ever after? The book otherwise sounds like it is much in the same vein as the companion that came out a year or two ago.
Bookies Luv True Blood has the details of the casting calls as well as the author and direction for 6.4! Below the Read More.
The Spoiler Fairy at SpoilerTV dropped a couple of details about True Blood 6.4. Below the Read More!
I’m still loving how Michael McMillian is handling the Eric and Sookie relationship in the comics. I know there are limitations with the comics since they are forced to occur in some nebulous time outside the show canon, but there is enough of a positive Eric/Sookie vibe to give me joy and keep me entertained until the show returns this summer.
Spoilery gallery for True Blood ongoing #8 is below the Read More. And I love how Michael Gaydos and Beni Lobel draw our Viking!
Eric flies with Sookie back towards Bon Temps after asking for help from Pam and Tara. (TB#8, page 4)
Chester, the leader of the Ghost Pack attacks Eric. (TB#8, page 15)
The wolf attacks Sookie (TB#8, page 17)
Sookie tries to use her fae energy to fight the werewolf. I personally think it’s a little late for Eric to be calling Sookie “Miss Stackhouse” when there aren’t other people around. TB#8, page 18)
Sookie’s fae power to the rescue – although Eric also takes the wallop. The magical amulet that Chester is wearing is knocked off, however. (TB#8, page 18)
But Chester goes for the amulet again… (TB#8 page 20)
…but lucky for Eric and Sookie, Alcide can kill the were now that his magical amulet is off. (TB#8 page 21)
Eric offers to heal Sookie with his blood after she is injured by the magical were, and the story line comes to an end…or does it? (TB#8 page 22)
Examiner.com interviewed Anna Paquin about her health routine since she had the twins in September 2012 and one of the comments was kind of interesting from a Sooric shipper point of view. Excerpts below, but if you want to read the full article and see how gorgeous Anna is just five months post-babies, check the story out here.
The quote I found particularly intriguing is bolded. 🙂
“True Blood” beauty Anna Paquin showcased her svelte post-baby body at the Tom Ford cocktail event in support of Project Angel Food in Beverly Hills, Calif., on Feb. 21.
Paquin, 30, donned a body-hugging black cocktail dress that accentuated her slender waist and toned arms. Amazingly, there’s not an inch to pinch on the 5-foot-5 Anna, who gave birth to twins just five months ago (in September 2012).
Paquin follows a healthy diet and works out regularly to stay fit. In addition to boxing, Anna jumps rope, does body-sculpting workouts and hot yoga to maintain her taut bikini body.
“My favorite workout by far is boxing,” Anna told Health. “It’s so much fun. You do a full proper boxing workout. You start jumping rope, and you do the pads, where your trainer calls out the combinations and you do them.
While Paquin wants to being healthy, she admits that vanity is the primary motivator for her intense exercise regimen. “Being naked at work [is my biggest motivator],” said Anna, who’s married to “True Blood” co-star Stephen Moyer and has frequent love scenes with her other co-star, Alexander Skarsgard.
So, is she expecting to be naked in season 6? And can we assume that she has upcoming “frequent love scenes” with her co-star ASkars?
