Happy New Year everyone :).
It’s a WIP and intriguing to say the least.
Summary: What happens if Eric missed one of the Yakuza killing squad? Would Sookie be able to protect herself from the last one? Or will she perish? Who will be her savior?
California Kat updated Inner last night as well.
I Dream3223 wrote a short ditty called Once Upon A Time which is original. There are no names or anything but it is still fun.
Gyllene wrote Won’t You Come In which is a one shot based after Eric flies Sookie home.
Queen of Area 5 accomplished quite a lot this past year.
She wrote: Behind the Public Masks
Summary: An old friendship and a chance encounter changed the fate of the Stackhouse’s forever.
Summary: A shocking betrayal leaves Sookie broken. But, when lies are uncovered and secrets unearthed, a new light is cast upon the past, and a shocking truth is finally revealed.
Summary: Eric lived a life of sin and never apologized for it. But when he’s visited by Three Ghosts from his past, Eric is forced to face up to the consequences of his actions.
Here Comes Good-Bye which is a one-shot
She also wrote quite a bit for Lifting the Veil which I think is my favorite of hers so far although I am also partial to another one which she has moved over to Sunset Queens called The Darkness Within but it’s not started over there yet since they’re still working on it.
Lifting the Veil Summary: To protect the future, Sookie had to forget her past and become the one thing she never wanted to be… Human.
And she also worked some on Fool No More
Summary: After being staked, attacked, almost drained, nearly raped, dealing with a kidnapping scheme, and being assaulted again, Sookie decides that enough is enough. Taking her own life in her hands leads to discoveries, connections, and developments that will forever alter her life and its direction.
I wrote the whole week of updates, or I hope it was all of them, THEN realized it was a page instead of a post sigh
So, this week you’ll be redirected to the page that stuff is on rather than be able to click from the post, lol.
I know, I know, it’s been forever since I posted.
Note, I checked all the links BEFORE I posted and they are all working at the time this was posted.
Another Note: The authors mentioned are by no means ALL the authors I read, they are just a mere selection. I will TRY to post more updates on stories as I get them. Unfortunately most of the updates come in while I’m at work and my phone’s being a right pain at present so updating from that can’t happen 😦 so I’ll try to remember to leave the update notifications in my inbox until I can get home and let everyone know.
I make all these promises then get caught up in something, in this case co-writing with MissPharao.
We’ve got this really awesome story going, Gotta Be Somebody, that is consuming my waking thoughts and an awful lot of my time in front of the computer.
The premise for GBS is totally, 100%, hers. I’ve added humour and a bit of plot but really, she’s totally awesome.
I know I’ve recommended, or at least mentioned, this story before and I’m mentioning it again because it really is totally awesome!
You’ve got Vampire Eric who still manages to be protective and loving, usually without going over the top or throwing the baby out with the bath water.
You’ve got part fairy Sookie who is in a transition phase from doting Grand daughter to a young woman on her own who has some strange things happening to her but she still manages to keep her life, her love and a job without losing who she is becoming in the process. I will tell you now this Sookie is not a drama queen nor does she give only lip service to her acceptance of the supernatural community, she actually accepts it and learns to live within it.
Then there’s California Kat; one of my all time favorite authors. Her Comfortably Numb series wrapped up last night with the epilogue to Burn Out the Pain but she’s still got other stories on the go. My favorite so far is the Un-iverse series and a close second is Who’s Your Daddy.
I’ll let you figure out Comfortably Numb since I think it’s the only one of her series I haven’t been able to get into for some reason. I’ll try again at a later date.
The Un-iverse sigh. Very vampire Eric, learning Fairy Sookie and a Fae bond between them which they are both struggling to accept and understand.
It starts out at the end of season 3 when Sookie is in the hospital after she’s attacked by Bill only it’s Eric who goes to her which changes everything.
Who’s Your Daddy: For someone who isn’t fond of Vampire Sookie stories she is doing an awesome job so far of writing about it. Of course, Sookie has only been a risen vampire for one whole chapter, out of ten so far, but as usual California Kat does an awesome job of giving us insight into what the characters are really thinking.
I’m enjoying Gyllene’s Lover’s Trilogy, Black Friday, From the Rooftop To Love and the other stories she has on her site.
The Lover’s Trilogy is an in progress series with only the first story complete.
Sookie has amnesia, no it isn’t just a reverse of the usual amnesia story line since she’s showing no signs of regaining her memories which were lost because of a bad car accident, so Eric has to work to get her to fall in love with him all over again.
Kittyinaz has her stories on the go as well 🙂 and I’m really enjoying I Never…Did and All I Want. They aren’t updated nearly often enough for my tastes but, as she says, real life takes precedence over online life. I happen to agree with her.
Mistress Jessica’s stories…some I like, some I can’t get into, but really that’s one of the signs of a good author: their stories either grab you and suck you in or they don’t but even the ones that don’t are still good :). The one I have read more than once, The Final Strand is a tribute to EricIzMine and took second place in Kittyinaz’s Angels writing challenge back in July.
I will end this lengthy post by saying EIM’s Multiverse, Sinners and Saints, Infinite and her one shots are still my go to reads when I need a pick me up.
It has been just over a year since Angela, EIM, passed from this world and into her own version of the Braid and I can honestly say that I miss her. I didn’t know her very well, really only through her stories and The Brat Pack on facebook, but what I saw I liked.
You are missed Angela, and not just because we’ll never get to read about the treasure hunt or what was in the vault or even how vampirey vampire Sookie was, but because I miss your humour and your honesty. I hope you are having fun writing your stories for the angels and they like them as much as us mere mortals do.
Look who’s….got a severely slow connection!
Any way: I entered Sephrenia’s fall Banner Challenge.
The deadline is tomorrow night but I’ve already sent it to her. I even remembered to include the title this time, lol.
There are other challenges coming up, including a Kill Bill. Unfortunately the timeline on that one had to be extended; the story’s done though, I’m just waiting to hear when I can send it in.
Over at Kittyinaz she’s started something truly unique. She’s started something called Anthem of Angels and it will have different contributing authors. It sounds really fun and I’ve started something for that as well.
Hmmm, let’s see: kardamon has two WIP’s: Healed which already has three posted chapters and Forget Me Not, a rewrite of one of her Polish stories, which has seven chapters posted and I just gave eight back to her tonight.
Healed: Season 7. Sookie has a different reaction when she learns Eric is healed. It’s looking good, so far, for a slightly smarter (and less bratty) Sookie although I can’t promise that since I only get one chapter at a time and I don’t have four yet, lol.
Forget Me Not: Interrupts Amnesia Story line. The witches were defeated, Pam had her fun, Jason is missing but something is horribly wrong. The witches curse was lifted, or was it?
MissPharao has one English WIP called Gotta Be Somebody which has five posted chapters with the sixth on the way in the next few days. She also has a German fanfiction listed but my German is non-existent so I can’t tell you how it is.
Gotta Be Somebody: A different Eric, a different Sookie.. Eric is more than we ever thought and Sookie’s out to kick butt and take names. Let’s see if Fairy Sookie comes out to play.
I’m sad that Outlander (wipes drool off mouth at the thought of Same Heughan in a kilt) has hid the mid season hiatus :(.
What is it with Mother Nature? Summer sucked! We had maybe two weeks of summer like weather right up until September 23 THEN teh warm weather decided to hit? WTF? I’m enjoying the warm weather while I can but really, 75+ degrees at the end of September?
