I know I have a billion replies to make and promise to get to them but for now, it's time to confess:I am addicted to Bill/Sookie
The reason I formulate it like this is because so far, that is THE reason I like TB. Even if I cannot avoid a firm conviction that Sookie is, while sweet and brave, remarkably dim and with a nonexistent take on self-preservation, and is probably the kind of woman who writes letters to serial killers in prison.
I can't help it, you guys! She is so sunny and sweet and optimistically believing in good about everyone. Plus she has that adorable gap between her teeth (shut up!) And he is so old-fashioned (He is so old-fashioned he doesn't know how to truly use conditioner if his hair is any indication) and alpha (whatever - I have very TRADITIONAL preferences in my fictional men) and well-mannered and protective. And he asks for her permission to call on her and they have so much eye-fucking. He is also dark-haired and with a Southern accent. And they have ridiculous killer chemistry.
I fell for them about the moment when she saved his life and then mocked him for his prosaic name unbefitting a vampire. I am a goner.
So cheesy, so good.
So, yeah, I am watching for Bill/Sookie. It does not help that I (unpopular fandom opinion number 3) loathe the repulsive slimebag Jason - I am sure there are more mature amoebas out there. Not to mention that it is his character's fault I am subjected to those hilariously bad sex scenes. Ugh. I don't like Tara (unpopular fandom opinion number 4) because she is a total bitch (her intro scene ruined her to me for a good long while - if some sales person was that rude to me, I would have hauled off and slapped her) but she seems sort of functional so deserves better than Jason - I hope she gets over him.
As to Eric - I will take y'all's word for the fact that he gets awesome and hot in S2 but for now all I can say is his costumer, stylist, and make-up artist all hate him. He looks like a wannabe goth in pancake make-up. Alexander Skarsgaard isn't really my type at all, lookwise,* but objectively speaking, he is a very good-looking man, so I do not see why his assistants had to work so hard to make him look that bad. (The hair!!!)
* Seeing the amount of fangirls he has, he will hardly miss my devotion not being applied to him :)
Will I ever switch ships? Unlikely. Once I get a ship, I glom on like a limpet. I can sometimes lose interest in the ship for whatever reason, but then it usually means I am done with the show too - I sort of find it hard to refocus. But we'll see.
So yeah, Bill/Sookie is SO MY OTP! Eleventy! Clearly, in any show involving two vamps in love with a blonde heroine I will always go for a brunette guy over the blond one :P
I want them to have sex on a table or similar. ( A few more caps from pilot )
So I'll be in my lonely Bill/Sookie corner. At least I know ambergold
will join me :)
Here is a deliciously cheesy my for my deliciously cheesy ship:
I am using the only vamp ship icon I have. I need to get me a Bill/Sookie one.
