OH Charlaine!

It’s video overload this week I know, but I just had to share this. It’s time for a book post anyway.

Charlaine Harris interviewed by a True Blood fan – who has a slightly warped sense of the lines between reality and fiction, and books and show.

I swear Harris has the patience of a saint to deal with this on a daily basis.

Interviewer: It’s a love story between them [Sookie and Bill] and they’re engaged in real life…I’ll be sad when they break up…
CH: Eeeww?!

Can’t wait for part 2 to be posted….

    I don’t want to imagine how it is for her.

    So im guessing she’s a massive Eric fan.

    I dont know who to pity more, CH or SM.

      Really?!! I never went to Uni and I’d have made a better job of being objective and neutral THE WAY A JOURNALIST SHOULD!!!!! Unless you have your own column or blog ALL interviews should be conducted in a neutral manner to gain the most information, otherwise there’s just no point to them.

        Exactly. You put into writing what I was thinking. What she is doing to poor Charlaine, I mean there’s just no excuse! Not when you have an education and is (supposed to be) a professional journalist. This is beyond bad.

          It’s an insult, really.

          Ok so your interviewing Charlaine Harris about her SVM book series and you moon over AP & SM’s real life engagement, which you’ve not only based your opinions on but which has absolutely nothing to do with SVM or TB for that matter. You’re wasting valuable time. Move on lady and give the chair to someone who actually has thought provoking and interesting questions to ask.

          The ignorance of this chick is astounding and has really pissed me off, guys.

            Amen nskars! Right on sista! I kept looking at the bottom of the screen reading “book review” yet I heard very little about the books.

            And I was soooo freaking happy when CH kinda put her in her place about the whole thing bringing the actor’s private lives into the roles. It’s so sad when even people that are supposed to be professionals can’t distinguish between reality and fantasy.

            On the plus side however, Charlaine is such a charming lady. I love hearing interviews with her, even if the interviewer seems to be somewhat clueless and even though CH is really good about not giving stuff away!

    Well no doubt about what filter that interviewer applied to her view of SVM/TB. It was an uncomfortable and boring set of questions for poor CH. She does indeed have the patience of a saint. SVB, would love to hear you pose some questions to CH (and AB for that matter). It would be nice to get some considered analysis for a change….

    • May 27, 2010 at 9:54 am

      I can almost hear SVB’s first question to AB. WHAT have you done to Eric’s hair and WHEN are you going to fix it? LOL

    • 15 Janofarc/hamsterbaby
      May 27, 2010 at 10:20 am

      There were so many more interesting questions that could have been asked with relation to the books vs the Tv show yet the focus was on Sookie & Bill. I can only hope that some of the other story arcs are addresses in the next part.

      Many of the smaller characters have been expanded on and thats the main difference between the two doesn’t that even warrant a mention?

    Charlaine Harris is adorable. She just seems like such a nice Lady. How funny is it that the name “Sookie” is listed as the No. 5 name for babies. lol

    Anyhooo, strange interview. I loved how CH subtly explained the difference between the actor’s personal lives and the characters they’re playing.

      My husband loves the name Sookie – so much so that he’s lobbying to put it on the list of potential names for our next child. I’m thinking though its because Anna P is now on his top 5.

        Oh my husband and I both agree that the name is totes adorable. But I would never do that to my daughter. We don’t need a bunch of mini-Bill’s running around the playground yelling SUKEH! LOL.

    What is WRONG with this interviewer?!?!

    It’s supposed to be an interview about THE BOOKS and she spends half the time spewing her neuroses about Sookie and Bill breaking upo on True Blood??? I mean, it’s fine if you want to wonder how they’re going to handle THE INEVITABLE on the show, but why the hell would you ask CHARLAINE HARRIS about it? Just to hear her say “well, it COULD happen differently”????

    Yeah, it COULD. But IT WON’T. I think that’s pretty obvious at this point.

    Anyway, CH handled that like a lady. And if another B/S shipper makes the argument that the fictional couple should stay together because Stephen Moyer and Anna Paquin are engaged in real life, I will have to stick hot pokers in my ears.

    • 27 Janofarc/hamsterbaby
      May 27, 2010 at 12:41 pm

      Yeah keep them in the forge for the queue of fellow hot poker users – we’ll be needing them. Are they going to accuse AP of cheating if Sookie gets it on with Eric? The lines of reality are blurred for these people.

      May 27, 2010 at 11:29 pm

      You arent alone. It makes me sick. B/S shippers dont think Sookie and ERic will have anything real. They think B/S is the REAL love story of TB and that AB is going to make sure that happens on TB, different from the books. ERic=Bump in the road to B/Ss happily ever after to them. Im so sick of it. Its b.s.

      Thats what got me the most! i found it really rude to be asking CH all these questions about AB. Completely inappropriate, and completely undermining CH as the mastermind behind the series.

      CH was such a lady though, and deserves much credit for handling such an icky situation as well as could be expected.

CH handled this really well cuz if that was me i prolly woulda lost my kool, an told the interviewer flat out i’m not answering any questions pertaining to True Blood, this is about my Books. CH cant really answer questions about True Blood when AB is in charge of the Show. The BL’s make me wanna smack them upside the head sometimes.

            I can understand why you would make that decision. I read the books after the end of TB S2. I was very confused throughout the first two books, especially about TB Season 1. It didn’t help that by then I had also started reading fanfic.

              Yes, you have to make a very concentrated effort to keep them separate in your mind if you are going to enjoy both at the same time. My SVM characters actually look diffent in my mind than the actors on TB! I try to stay away from fan fiction, because that even makes it more confusing!

    The BL’s obviously have to show the world that they haven’t got a grip on reality and also cannot distinguish AB from CH. If this moron “interviewer/journalist” can’t even pronounce the name of the MAIN character in the books & show why is she interviewing the author?

    Im new to this…apologies.

    I thought I had all the acronyms down : (

    Also- how silly that she had to ask CH how to say Sookie- does she honestly think they would have accidentally mispronounced it in the series.

    i was also wondering if anyone else found her patronising when she said (regarding name: Sookie)’so it’s a Southern thing?’

    I thought it was bad enough when idiots would say on a MB, that Bill and Sookie should stay together because they’re engaged in real life. Probably one of the stupidest comments I would say. But to see someone interviewing CH and actually asking this is horrible, and how is this a book interview? it’s all about the show.

      As a woman who has had a long life and some bad loves, I can tell that SM and AP will never make it to the alter, What are the BLs going to do when the inevitable SM/AP break up comes? Will they still not be able to separate fact and fiction?

      • 62 sunnynala
        May 27, 2010 at 9:48 pm

        In that case, it will all be AP’s fault. Obviously she’s a slut if she breaks up with the saintly SM.

          I was never in Alias fandom, but I have some friends who were, and they said this is exactly what happened when Jennifer Garner and Michael Vartan broke up in RL. (Although I do wish SM and AP well!) It’s amazing how misogynistic fandom can be, especially since the vast majority of us are female, and should know better.

Oh but theyrs so cute together…ugh seriously i think i threw up a little. They are very well paid actors and if they have to *horror of horrors* act out relationships with other hot actors well im sorry but i would pay to be in that situation, especially with AS. The show is not about Bill and Sookie. Im sick of people saying this.

    May 27, 2010 at 11:36 pm

    Was the response to Bills revelation all that mixed? I know when i read the books i wasnt that surprised, and was happy that Bill would finally be out of the picture. Im sure im one of many that felt this way. I mean they had been broken up since book 3

    • May 28, 2010 at 12:15 am

      I remember I was quite shocked when I read the books and found out about Bill.

      Instinctively, I didn’t warm to him in the books at all. From the very beginning he set off my creeper alert but I didn’t for one minute suspect that he was sent there by the Queen. When that came out, that was my “a-ha” moment with these books – the moment when I realised I had better start paying closer attention because there was stuff buried under all the popcorn fluff that I wasn’t seeing. Then of course when I went back and read from the beginning, the hints about Bill’s mission were EVERYWHERE but they were very, very subtle mostly. So yeah, I was surprised. Not that he turned out to be such a douche – because I already knew that – but that I’d missed that Bill had an agenda.

      You want to know something really interesting though? Before True Blood when there was just the books, the vast majority of book fans were pulling for Eric. You can see this in the really old threads on CH’s board, and also I’ve seen at least two of her board mods (who’ve been on the board for years) confirm this. It’s only since True Blood that there has been a resurgence of popularity for Bill, and Harris herself has said that she thinks it’s because of SM’s “sympathetic portrayal”.

      Anyway, back to this interview. To be fair, this is only part one and I think the interviewer will eventually get around to asking about the books.

      The thing I found most hilarious (besides CH’s eeeww) is the interviewer’s assertion that True Blood is a love story between Sookie and Bill.

      I mean, I know people think that because I read it online all the time. But to see someone actually SAY it….have you even READ the opening credits? Do you know who created this series? This is so NOT a love story.

      And yes, incredibly disrespectful to be blabbing on about True Blood and the fact that you don’t want to see it go in the same direction as the books – when you are sitting right there with the fucking author whose imagination created these characters, their story and their world.

      Charlaine handled this with her usual grace and charm. If that was me I would’ve grabbed the nearest copy of DITF and batted her over the head with it.

        Bill Bangers are always disrespectful to Ms. Harris. Some of them will not even type her name, calling her ‘she who shall not be named’. I think they’re all in the grip of some kind of mass hysteria.

            They’re unhinged right now because things like promos and trailers have made everything so good for Eric’s character.

            This one Bill chick on FB said a little while ago that the trunk scene would be rape if Bill were a human but since he’s a vampire it wasn’t rape. Ok then. I’ve heard some doozies but that one takes the cake. The smell of desperation is becoming a stench.

                I cannot wait for the saintly Bill to fall. I have seen many BL post saying the rape was not Bill’s fault. Then they say it is Debbie Pelt’s fault IMO AB is going to use the Bill was watching the Ratrays beat Sookie angle and if he does, the BL’s will most likely say Bill loved Sookie so much at first sight that he knew he had to find a way to give her blood” Or maybe they will say “He didn’t know her but he loves her now so it does not matter.” Or maybe they will say “It’s Eric’s fault” Everything is always Eric’s fault.

Im sorry, but the rape speaks to his lack of self contol. Plain and simple. Hes been a vampire long enough to be in control at this point. I dont sympathize.

                [Im sorry, but the rape speaks to his lack of self contol.]

                In the books, there’s no doubt about it. Bill is practically incapable of showing any restraint, and this fact was reiterated time and again. That’s why it was impossible to cut him ANY slack (for me at least) even with the starved and tortured line he used. I don’t CARE if he felt bad about it later… or if he “couldn’t control himself”… he did what he did, and you simply CAN’T just brush that off any more than you would someone raping you because he was drunk. (Not to mention the fact that Bill never even really APOLOGIZED outright… and couldn’t even bring himself to actually SAY what he had done. DOUCHE.)

                Anyway, Alan Ball has emphasized very different qualities in HIS Bill… just like he has with HIS Eric… and while the two aren’t exactly incongruent, they are a bit upredictable in that regard. (Well, if you’re using the books as a compass, at least.) Although we’ve already established the glaring lack of accountability in TB Bill, so that’s one common feature between the two.

                I still contend that the rape scene WILL happen. Topically, it’s right up Alan Ball’s alley, so I’d be surprised if he left it out. But I haven’t the slightest idea how it will play out on True Blood. At this point, I’m doubting that the circumstances will be the same at all… but who knows?

                  If the rape scene does happen on TB, it’ll be Sookie’s reaction I’ll be most interested in – she had a hard time coming to terms with what Bill had done and it took Alcide to spell it out to her.Sorry Sookie, but at times you really need to grow a brain! (Bit like that interviewer – poor, poor CH!)

                    Yap… Sookie didn’t react much to the continuous rapes, just a little to the last one with her non reaction. But ok, she didn’t know anything and she might have thought it was normal… But with time, knowing the rest, she should have realise. At this moment, if she had fucked again with him, she would have seen the difference. The problem with her is that she kind of forgets it and so, gives him the reasson. She can do it if she wants, but doesn’t she realise that if he did that to her when she had to be protected for the queen, he must do worst things to other women?

                    I always said that I don’t think the trunk scen will happen. But it would be stupid of AB, as he is or was, not to use the soul for something worst… Something that might make Sookie react a bit more.

                    Rewarding the interview, well, since the girl began talking it was obvious what would happen.
                    Her first question was stupid.
                    Her speaking and expression was not smart at all
                    And she didn’t let CH talk

                    Not only silly but uneducated and unrespectful.

                    I loved the Ewww, and by her words… She knows what AB is going to do, she knows, she was very confident, lol.
                    And yap, she might be pro Eric, because he is her protagonist and is a good one, but he doesn’t have competition in her world, so… No other options but loving Eric. There never were, Sookie is the only one who sees options around.

                  Nope. He never mentioned it specifically after it happened. Never once apologized. Thats why it was so bad. He couldnt acknowledge what hed done at all. Just avoided it completely.

                  Since AB likes to give Bill all Eric’s actions, he’ll probably have Eric raping Sookie and that really would be my last straw.

                  We do know that she will be attacked in some manner because we have seen the pictures of AP with her neck bandaged. My guess is that Bill will attack her, but not in a trunk.

        LOL…yeah well i didnt suspect that he was ordered by the Queen but i knew something was up with him beyond what had happened in book 3. And yeah i cant totally believe that True Blood is what swayed some towards Bill. But even i watched Season one and half of season two before i read the books, and i just KNEW that something was going on with Sookie and Eric. Their tension has always been amazing, and i felt it before i was biased because of the books. And what i find funny is that the BLs dont think that Eric is ever going to be with Sookie, and that Eric is the bump in the road or something, not significant at all. They think, as you said, that True Blood is all about Sookie and Bill and their love story. Its not, and i dont get why they would think that. The first two books completely focused on them, and AB followed with that. Hes changed things, but hes still heading towards the same ultimate goals, and for some reason, from what ive read, most are convinced that TB will play out like Twilight or something. In other words, Bill is Sookies soulmate and Eric is just a nuisance who doesnt have a chance. Ugh, i cant stand reading this. The show is nothing like Twilight, and its not about Bill and Sookie as a couple. And this one fundamental thing is something some refuse to understand.

          In the books, I just didn’t like Bill and Sookie’s relationship. I don’t see how he is so romantic like many claim. I didn’t like their interaction and just overall didn’t care about them as a couple. Even if he wasn’t ordered by the Queen, I would still want her with Eric. Well I liked Eric and Sookie even before book 6, so I should say even if he didn’t leave and go to Lorena, I would still want her with Eric.

            As someone who started reading the series AFTER seeing the first season of True Blood, I will say that I was SHOCKED at how douchey Bill was in the first book. He wasn’t a COMPLETE assface… but if your best friend was dating him, you’d definitely be telling her to drop the dead weight.

            In my opinion, Alan Ball made a smart move by making Bill more sympathetic. Because when the shit hits the fan– and it WILL– it will be that much more heartbreaking and shocking.

            And for the record, I totally had a ladyboner for Bill in season one. By season two, I had already read all the books, so there was really no going back… but Bill had become SO ANNOYING by then, that I’m sure I would have switched “teams” anyway.

              I also read the books after the show, and was surprised how different he was in the books too.

              That is what I think AB is trying to do. If he was also not the greatest boyfriend on the show, then how heartbreaking and shocking will it be if he ends up betraying her. He wants to evoke that type of emotion, and for TV it makes a huge impact.

              I can’t say I was on the Bill bandwagon for very long, I jumped off pretty quickly. Sure I found him very alluring at first, but when I found out he had an inferiority complex towards Eric, which is not even during the first visit to Fangtasia where its confirmed, but when Malcolm first mentions him. From there on I suppose my brain identified Bill as the Beta, and he was done for me.

              I can’t wait for Bill to get his due. Hehehe.

                For me, it wasn’t so much that Bill wasn’t Alpha– because he DID kill Longshadow on the show, which speaks to a certain take-action, consequences-be-damned kind of mentality. He didn’t REALLY commit to the broody and whiny act until season two.

                I’d say they started to lose me with Bill’s little foray into the sunlight in the season finale. I found Crispy Bill (SOOOOOKEEEEH…) laughably ridiculous. It was the most pointless and melodramatic overture in the history of television. So much so that I was almost embarrassed to be watching it.

                Then again, I STILL break out into hysterics when Bill bursts into flames at the breakfast table in Sookie’s dream. So maybe I just have a sick and inappropriate sense of humor. LOL

                  I actually remember giggling when Malcolm first mentions Eric, ‘who is this Eric guy, he sounds kinda hot!’ Lol. So for me anyway, I never let Bill in very deep so I wasn’t very surprised when he turned douche.

                  But yeah his Season 2 behavior is stark in comparison. Soookeeh. lol.

                      I really hated that scene… I was like, WTF? And contrary to the books, she seemed to like it. But then, the only thing I find romantic about their sex scenes is the music, the rest is plain eroticism.

          But even i watched Season one and half of season two before i read the books, and i just KNEW that something was going on with Sookie and Eric. Their tension has always been amazing, and i felt it before i was biased because of the books

          Yes, exactly. I read the first book before I ever watched True Blood (although I had heard about the show, and wanted to watch it, despite not having HBO at the time – that was why I picked up Dead Until Dark). I never warmed to Bill/Sookie as a couple in the book, but I remember being very interested in the Fangtasia chapters. I found Eric and Pam to be fascinating characters, and when I finally got the DVDs, I was not disappointed at all by their portrayal (especially since I expected them to be portrayed much more negatively like Bill’s actual friends, the nasty Malcolm, Liam, and Diane.)

          Fortunately, we got free HBO for the summer (thank you, DirecTV!), and I got to watch the second season immediately after that. I had suspected from their first meeting that Eric and Sookie would hook up eventually (like, duh), but I suspected he would seduce her in some way and it would be a very complicated, manipulative kind of thing. So far, the only manipulative thing Eric has done to seduce Sookie has been to trick her into drinking his blood (which is something that happened in the books. Then after I read the rest of the books, I was surprised to find out the depths of emotion that would play out with Eric’s character and his relationship with Sookie (not to mention how light-hearted and fun some of their interactions would be). This was like Christmas for me, knowing that a relationship I was just starting to root for was actually going to happen. I know things won’t play out exactly like the books, but I’m still excited to see how things will go on the show. For example, the preview of the basement scene, which many of the fans on this blog have complained about as character assassination. Personally, I loved every bit of it. Especially, the look on Eric’s face at the end when he admits to Sookie that he wants what Bill has.

          Then again, I’m not familiar with AB’s previous work. I studied under the harsh tutelage of Joss Whedon in four different fandoms. If a storyteller could be as cruel as him, and still have me coming back for more, I don’t think there is much that could turn me off at this point.

            Angie yes – Joss Whedon is a hearbreaker in terms of killing off major characters (Spike!…Wash!…Paul!), but he does it so well that yes, he has me coming back for more. That’s the mark of a great storyteller. So far AB has me hooked, but I am anxious to see if he allows TB Eric’s character to develop some more of those fun, lighthearted traits we see in BE. I think there are glimpses, so overall I am hopeful….but still, I am watching AB’s arse on this point….

          • May 28, 2010 at 11:19 am

            Never liked Bill or his relationship with Sookie even if I started watching TB before reading the books.
            Bill and Sookie as a couple reminded me of Bella and Edward since the beginning. The Romantic Tormented Vampire who doesn’t like who he is, who is scared of harming the girl, the Virgin who never knew love before, the love at first sight stuff. Same old story, nothing new for me. I did like TB but NOT because of the love story between them, which I always found the weakest, most boring part of the show.
            I didn’t like the first book either, for the same reasons. But luckily I kept on reading and bought the second one just when S2 was airing. THAT was the turning point for me, both in the books and in the show, thanks to Eric’s character. I immediately saw the sparkles flying between him and Sookie.

But nothing about Eric unless Bills in it also. And they actually pretend to be unbiased LOL. True-blood.net is a good site because even though the women that run it are Eric fans they manage to stay unbiased and post everything no matter who its about. The Vault should take notes from them.

        [When that came out, that was my “a-ha” moment with these books – the moment when I realised I had better start paying closer attention because there was stuff buried under all the popcorn fluff that I wasn’t seeing. Then of course when I went back and read from the beginning, the hints about Bill’s mission were EVERYWHERE but they were very, very subtle mostly. So yeah, I was surprised.]

        Well, you know that’s what I have always told you. That all the clues are there but people can’t see them because they are only focusing on E/S. And THAT is the hidden card under her sleeve. Because the more subtle or low profile are the details, the bigger will be the shock and the surprise.

              Yea seriously, if yo want something to pat on the head and cuddle with, you buy a dog, you don’t marry one.

              Besides, Sam’s function in Sookie’s like seems to be a confidant of sorts, IMO no point in changing, he’s hardly the long-suffering platonic friend that has pined for her during all that time. The guy dates, and not just one person, but several already. That changing seems a cop-out, like the author saying “ok, we’ve put her together with everyone but Sam, it’s time they have a go at it”, and that’s just stupid, she doesn’t have to be involved with every single guy around her.

          Ive noticed the Sam stuff, him always being there and whatnot, but it hasnt swayed my opinion and do not want them together. Im sorry, but i find that boring and will be disappointed if it happens. Im not so delusional that i dont think its a possibility, but im not ruling ERic out yet. Sam and Sookie are great friends, but i dont know if it would carry over into a romantic relationship. I think at this point it would be weird. And Sam didnt even mention any romantic feelings towards Sookie in DITF. The only thing that bugs me is they always have a problem with each others significant others, but in Sookie case i dont blame her because Sam has very bad taste in women, and you want the best for someone you care about. I dont know. I dont see it, or feel it.

            May 28, 2010 at 5:33 pm

            Ashley, I agree with your comments. The only interaction between Sam and Sookie in DITF that gave me pause was the fact that it is mentioned that Sam and Sookie seem to have a real problem with whom the other dates. But, CH also told us on page that Sam cut off his “halo” hair, which I think is symbolic of a mask coming off. There seemed to be nothing but friendship between the two of them in the book, nothing romantic in the least. In fact, Sam did not even offer to pay for her meal at Crawdad’s, and they barely spoke when she saw him at church. When Pam and Sookie stop on the side of the highway to fight Bruno and Corinne, Sookie gives a silent goodbye to Eric, instead of Sam. She used to always think of Sam when she was in dangerous or perilous situations. So, I am just not getting the feeling that Sam is the HEA at this point. I think Eric has already chosen his HEA!

                I will be really irritated if CH changes the dynamic between Sam and Sookie, especially in the novella and book 11. IMO, Sam is a very sketchy character, and Sookie better open her eyes. I hope he does not hurt her.

      I wasn’t surprised they broke up either. Bill was always able to put his relationship with her behind whatever else he had to do, but once he was finished he was there for sex. In fact, the first time I read the books, I thought all he does is have sex with her. I was screamed at for saying that on the HBO boards a over a year ago. They reminded me he took her to a movie once and I think there was another “date” somewhere along the way.

      From the beginning of Book 3, I knew they were over.

    I like to come up with different scenarios for the books I love. So, in my mind, if Sookie and Eric don’t work out, this fangbanger who’s overheard the break-up makes moon-y eyes and says, “So, will you get back with Biiilll??” And Sookie says, “Fuck no!”

    Makes me laugh every time I think that.

    But, yeah, I kept waiting for questions about, you know, the books. I don’t think this girl has read them…

    May 28, 2010 at 3:11 am

    Ok…just my two cents for what it’s worth. As much as I hate generalizations, I’ve noticed that many Bill fans tend to have very socially conservative views about sexuality, relationships, gender roles, and the role of women in society in general. They fail to realize just how much their worldview has shaped by patriarchal cultural conditioning. Up until recently, society demanded (and still does to an extent, but thankfully things *are* changing) that women should be docile and unquestioningly subservient to men. The double standard applied…any woman who confidently enjoys expressing her sexuality is labled a “slut.” The plot of most romance novels centers around archaic notions of gender: a naive virgin finds love at first sight with a domineering and experienced older partner. He is tormented by his wicked past until she redeems him with her selfless and unquestioning love. The idea that a relationship should be an egalitarian partnership is still a threatening notion to a lot of people.

    I guess what I am trying to say is it’s not really about Bill or Eric. These women view any criticism of Bill not as character analysis but a challenge to the romantic mythology they’ve emotionally invested in their entire lives. Unfortunately, for them, what works on the pages of a Harlequin romance novel never works out quite so well in real life.

      May 28, 2010 at 3:44 am

      Sometimes I wonder about their age too. Not simply for the fact that they like Bill, but after seeing some of their posts, many of them seem young. So many times Ive seen posts that sound like this “OMG they have to be together because they love each other so much, he is so romantic and will do anything for her, they just can’t break up” and what I just wrote is not even as bad as most of them sound, I couldn’t even fake the crazy weird enthusiasm some have. I don’t know many adults who speak this way. Which would also explain the fascination with first love.

      Of course, this is not the case for all the BL’s but many of them I want to ask them their age.

      And I agree with everything else you said Penny, that also explains the older fans. Very well said.

        May 28, 2010 at 11:31 am

        to Dee and penny: I am not sure if this age argument is valid. Of course there are a lot young Twilight shippers who decided that TB is the same idea plus adult content. But on the other hand I am 21 and huge Bill hater as are all my other friends, too. Even if there was no agenda, no Chicago couple and no uncle Bartlett I would hate him for being so controlling and condescending towards Sookie.
        In a nutshell I agree that younger women are maybe less life experienced thus more in danger to be influenced by a man like Bill. But there are a lot of elder women who also love Beel although they should know better. So I think it is more a character thing. There is a moment in life you have to decide: Do I want to have a secured lifestyle with no need to fight my own battles because my “partner” defines and determines my life or do I want to face harsh reality being a self reliant woman. The first choice is easy, the second not always but it provides you a lot – freedom, self reliance and often an open mind.

          Yap. Though age affects because of the experience, in the end all is about our personality and principles, about our way of thinking and the world we live in, our family. WHat depends on our upbringing. And what we learn by seeing when we are little affects to our subconsciousness more than we would think. I have to admit that though I didn’t like Bill in the end and hate him more as days pass and that I didn’t like him in the first episodes, he charmed me for a while and I fail to see many things…

        Which is exactly why I’ve likened them to Bush lovers. The conservative attitudes are pervasive regardless of the progressive language some of them use. (JUST LIKE BILL, lol) In fact, I would bet that many of them identify as progressive (I know for sure that some of them do) while holding deep-seated, unacknowledged conservative-to-right-wing views. What they really are is “authoritarians”.

    • 121 MASpencer
      May 28, 2010 at 4:03 am

      Oh THIS. That’s exactly why I find the ‘Twilight’ phenomenon so disturbing. I’d say it’s regressive… but really, it just demonstrates that we haven’t come as far as we THINK we have, or it wouldn’t resonate with so many young people (AND their mothers) in the first place.

      Nobody likes having their life choices and beliefs challenged. It’s uncomfortable, and people would FAR prefer to have their beliefs VALIDATED. That will never change, I’m afraid. Where long-held values are concerned, revolution is a bit of a myth. Evolution, on the other hand, is very possible… but it takes a dishearteningly long time to achieve.

      I can’t say for sure whether the Bill vs. Eric debate really boils down to this, though. Because if Sookie launched an illicit affair with Bill while MARRIED to Eric at this point, you just know they’d be totally fine with it. And sometimes, I feel like I shouldn’t really talk at all… because even though I prefer Eric, it can’t be denied that the whole vampire fascination itself stems from oppressive Victorian notions about sex. And I’m as susceptible to it as anyone else.

        I think the whole Twilight phenomenon is alluring to some readers because it absolves women from having to take responsibility for this own lives. That series, and others like it, provide the fiction that all you have to do is passively wait for your “one true love at first sight” to show up. And when Prince Charming does arrive, he will make you feel special, beautiful, fulfilled, and happy. Never mind that our self esteem shouldn’t be based on the validation of others. Nor is it functional or healthy to expect our partner fix our screwed up lives or make us feel happy. What’s more, Edward Cullen’s controlling behavior and stalking is held up as proof of the sincerity of his love. On her part, she seems to have no goals, ambitions, or aspirations outside of being EC’s girlfriend. All of which makes for an especially piss-poor romantic blueprint for impressionable young women who buy into the myth.

He mentioned how if a guy did these things in real life it’s creepy and he joked around about EC being a stalker.

            I hate it because it’s responsible for the bizarre belief, widely held in this fandom that Sookie needs to be made into a vampire to have a vampire HEA.

            For that alone, Twilight can burn in fucking hell. LOL.

              Out of sheer boredom on my part I watched the first Twilight film. Needless to say I wanted those 2 hours back, what a waste of time! Sorry, but I like my vamps to be dangerous, sexy, unpredictable and able to charm the pants off anyone they want! That’s why I fell in love with Charlaine’s world 🙂

                Just be happy you didn’t waste your time on the SECOND one, too. I even made my poor HUSBAND sit through that crap… for which I don’t think he ever forgave me. LOL

                Anyway, I agree with everything being said about it here– and no, I don’t understand how anyone can enjoy a story about VAMPIRES that doesn’t involve either sex OR routine human bloodsucking. What’s the point?

                If I were Bella, I’d have banged that underage werewolf the minute Edward left the picture. And then moved the fuck out of Forks. 😉

                  LOL! Still, sounds like a lot of us on here have very understanding husbands who can put up with our little whims and fantasies. Probably goes a long way to explaining why we favour this site and a certain viking!(As opposed to controlling fuck-wit Beehl!)
                  I’ll definitely be steering clear of all things Twilight from now on – the fact that it’s aimed at teenagers AND pre-teens (I know of girls aged 9/10 who have read it) makes my blood run cold.

              LOL! I admit to liking the twilight series, however, my biggest reason for liking it was Jake and the rest of the wolf pack. They were awesome, funny, and just all around good reading. I didn’t hate Edward, but by the end I did not like Bella. Didn’t hate her, but didn’t really like her either. Her obsession with being a vampire pissed me off so much. Not because I didn’t like the vampires, but mostly because I hated her complete lack of self esteem. She had good qualities, but her inability to accept herself as she was just sucked. I also didn’t like the assumption that in order to be with edward she’d have to b/c a vampire. To me it made no sense. Mortal couples don’t live forever. Partners in a marriage don’t die at the same time, so why should the possibility of happiness between a mortal and an immortal be predicated on them both being immortal or dying at the same time?

                The exhausting wait for DITF left me vulnerable.   I avoided Twilight for so many different reasons.   I tried ten or so books that I could not finish because everything was so boring after DAG.    Then I went through all nine SVM again and some a third time.  I had to have something else hold my attention so I finally caved in and listened to the Twilight audiobooks.  I am almost embarrassed to admit this, but they were just as addicting.   Then, I have NEVER been a celebrity follower, until one Kristen Stewart put a spell on me.    The fandom is annoying, mostly due to Kristen’s BF.   For me though, it’s all about her.

            It was funny about her that, from the begining she was shown (or better, the writer wrote that she was) some kind of person that her way of thinking and her actions denied.

            If it were real, she would be no shy, I doubt she would have no friends in her first school, or she would have beeng more alone in the second, she wasn’t very intelligent, she didn’t study (maybe the level at the schools that the author went an hour or two of studing was enough… Since I was 13 I had to study at least 4 hours, and my two last years I just got enough to sleep a little and go out one night or afternoon a week… Maybe that is just Spain, but I want to doubt it)… And on and on.

            The books could be enjoied if you closed your eyes at all the oddities, lol. I lol a lot with a friend, bc I don’t use to read that style of literature (I love war, haha) but I got addicted, about this books while telling her all that happened, XD

          I read all of Twilight, mostly because I’ll read anything vampire related. (I blame it on reading Anne Rice while a at an impressionable age of 12). I actually liked the first book during the part Edward hated her, after that it was all down hill from there and its a steep drop. Meyer writes at times like a schizophrenic, and some of her ideas are just plain bad, -dare I mention Renesemee, the half human half vampire makes no sense spawn of doom. And its more than true, Bella is the worst heroine ever. I wouldn’t be too surprised if they could attribute increases in teenage girls’ attempted suicides to her. “I was just trying to see my bf again!” Really? Suicide as dating strategy? Meyer should be more than ashamed of herself, representing females like that.

          Twilight is also my personal nightmare. I grew up with good, old Buffy who was self reliant and witty. She had a lot of problems to deal with, she sometimes nearly broke but never gave up. I´d prefer that my daughter someday will face such a role model and not subservient Bella Swan.
          What you said about relationships is also so right. Me and my boyfriend now live together for three years and I always have to laugh when I meet one-month-couples who want to tell me that my relationship is totally wrong because me and my boyfriend let each other enough space, have different hobbies and *shock* are friends with members of the other sex. A lot of these couples especially the female parts believe that love makes you one person who acts and thinks the same while I think that a good relationship makes both partners to grow and to develop without losing individuality.

            You’re right– if you abstract all of the details from the personality and relationship types exemplified by ‘Twilight’ you’ve got seriously bad news.

            Most notable is the tendency of an abuser (be it male OR female) to isolate as a form of control, which leads to codependence. An obsession with all-consuming “perfect love” is also a trademark sign of narcissism– it’s all part of the “magical thinking” problem. Take the excessive protectiveness and jealousy, combined with the I’m-ignoring-you-because-I-love-you cliche, combined with the considerably more dangerous I’ll-just-die-if-I-can’t-be-with-you cliche, and you’ve got all of the most poisonous myths about love rolled up into one big fat money-making juggernaut.

            Aimed directly at teenage girls. *facepalm*

            But hey, at least they won’t be getting any bright ideas about sex before marriage from these books, right?

              Yes, the girls might have some fun and become *Bill quote* slatterns. This would be the end of Western civilication 🙂

          Well, good luck to all those “romantic girls/women” cause sometimes Prince Charming never shows up and Cinderella has to make do all on her lonesome, at least this Cinderella has. And I can’t say my life has been horrible because of it, it’s actually been interesting. Hate that these myths continue to be perpetuated. Just causes major disappointment.

    The thing that really, really irritates me to no end is when people can’t separate fiction from reality. THE SHOW DOES NOT MIRROR THE LIVES OF THE ACTORS!!! Stephen Moyer is NOT Bill Compton, Alexander Skarsgard is NOT Eric Northman, and there’s no potential conflict IRL. I’ve been seeing a lot of blurring of these lines lately, and it’s driving me crazy!

    It’s one thing if fans are engaging in this kind of behavior, but to see it in an interview makes me cringe, and it’s unprofessional.

    Sorry I know this is really OT and didn’t know where else to post it so I figured last blog post would be best.

    This is for Renee, so hope you see this. I know you have a whole theory of Eric with wolves so thought you’d find this interesting:

    “Eric hates [werewolves],” says Alexander Skarsgard, covered with white makeup and accents of blood red during a break on the show’s L.A. set. “In his opinion, werewolves are very primitive, stupid, disgusting, not sophisticated. After a while, you’ll find out there’s a deeper reason he hates them.”

    Totally OT but just wanted to let the Aussie SVB posters know that True Blood.net had this about OZ broadcast for season 3

    ‘Rumor has it that True Blood season 3 will debut in Australia on Foxtel beginning August 19. We haven’t been able to confirm that with Foxtel yet, so Aussie fans, keep your eyes open and send us the link to verify!’

    Mmm, I am 99.9% sure I can’t wait till August!

      LOL omg i cant even bring myself to read what they said because everytime i comment over there i get accused of hating Bill or being an Eric rabid, and i dont even mention Eric LOL. They might as well say what they really mean: WE DONT WANT PEOPLE WHO DONT LOVE BILL POSTING HERE That would clear everything up for them.

    WTF are they doing watching TB in the first place then? One of the main points of the show – and books – is focusing on minority groups and people who are judged to be “different”. I’m just surprised that these women are BLs rather than out-and-out worshippers with the FOTS!!
