My 2 Cents’ Worth: Swimming To theLlight
Summary: This story picks up where Dead Ever After finishes. Sookie is with Sam and Eric is in Oklahoma. How will they find their way back to each other? There is a happily ever after, but it will require help from unexpected sources.
LOVE this story and the WIP sequel The Far Reach, and not only because I’m beta for this story either.
Swimming is up for Best Drama, Best Rewrite of SVM and Best Angst awards and natsgirl herself is up for Best New Comer. I’m up for best beta and American Android is up for best artist for her banners and artwork.
Swimming starts six years post DEA. Things are not as they seemed in the Co-dumb. Sookie is unhappy and in an abusive relationship.
Eric is unhappy, ’nuff said.
The news that Sookie has been abused ‘reaches’ Felipe de Castro so he offers to take over Oklahoma and install Eric as regent and lift the ban on seeing his children.
He’s sent to bring the telepath back to his side. Read that as bring her back into Felipe’s fold.
Things don’t go as planned.
Swimming is a thoroughly enjoyable read. The angst isn’t overbearing. They even get stretches where they can just be themselves! gasp! It’s 35 chapters of drama, loving and learning.
