Eric receives a request from a dying boy (Hunter) to take his mother (Sookie) on a date. He decides to give the request a chance in the hopes it will alleviate some of his boredom with life. AU / OOC! Rated M for language and later chapters. E/S. Mild angst/drama.
This story is: COMPLETE
If you have aversions to:
Eric as a family man or romance bordering on sappy, this is not the story for you. I have some very mild drama planned, stuff that starts and resolves in the course of one chapter (one situation may take two chapters – I haven’t written that far out yet).
Main characters with comments:
Vampire, Sheriff of Area 5 as normal. Bored with life, looking for something else. Willing to step out of typical vampire character for Sookie – he’s immediately drawn to her.
Character: Alexander Skarsgård
Telepath with a slightly different background – she started her education and has a better handle on her shields. Less stubborn than CH Sookie (though it can flare occasionally). Has maintained a long distance crush on Eric for a few months.
Character: Megan Hilty
Telepath – Totally cute and wants his Mommy happy. He knows about Sookie’s crush so he writes a letter. In this story, Hunter is diagnosed as terminal. If that put you off, or you’re unsure – I do have the SPOILER posted on his situation. It’s a spoiler – and you’ve been warned.
Character: Billy Wagenseller
You’ll hate him
Character: Ryan Kwanten
Not gonna be too fond of this Pam.
Character: Kristen Bauer van Straten
What’s she doing in a fanfic as a major character? Gran is gone and she stepped up to help Sookie and Hunter. She’s not the annoying Maxine that we normally have. Even Eric LIKES her!
Character: Dale Raoul
Mustapha starts as Eric’s PI but his role grows.
Character: Idris Elba
Our lovely Make a Wish woman! We met her in the first chapter when she delivered the letter from Hunter to Eric. Well, I really hadn’t planned to have her back again but so many of you write that you liked her – I changed my mind. Hope you like what you inspired me to do – you’ll just have to wait til about chapter 25 for more of her storyline .
Character: Honor Blackman
Hoyt and Jessica:
Adopted family for Sookie and Hunter.
Characters: Jim Parrack and Deborah Ann Woll
