Why am I OK with CH’s stomping us in the face?
Because fanfic rules….AND WE ARE IN NO WAY REQUIRED TO KEEP ONE DAMN THING “CANON”.
We have a glorious plethora of excellent fic writers at our fingertips – writers whose stories I have, in all honesty, enjoyed more (and often MUCH more) than CH’s slowly-devolving works.
Am I heartbroken that CH built up a fantastic world of romance and possibilities between Eric and Sookie, then turned right around and spit in our faces?
Duh. Of course I am. I feel absolutely betrayed and hoaxed and used and all the other ways a great book is NOT supposed to make me feel. Granted, this series is her baby to fuck up as she wants, and she did…
But…I really – REALLY – look forward to reading what I hope to be a resulting avalanche of great fics from our fellow writers.
THAT is gonna rock so hard.
So…I’m ok with this…in a coping sort of way.
What CH said on her FB page:
By now some of you know that a reader in Germany obtained a copy of DEAD EVER AFTER and decided to post the ending online. While this is unfortunate, I wanted to say this to all of you: Even if you *personally* are unhappy with the ending, please don’t spoil it for other readers. DEAD EVER AFTER goes on sale on May 7th; after that date, you are more that welcome to come here and tell me how much you like – or don’t like – the choices I’ve made for Sookie. But from one Sookie fan to another, I’m asking you all to please not spoil the book for other readers. Thank you so much for your continued support.
Figures. I bet she’s rolling around naked in all her dough sniggering at bursting so many people’s dreams of an Eric/Sookie HEA. Oh, wait…she’s probably just pissed that word got out and her sales are plummeting…ok, mean or not, that makes ME snicker…
Also: this was too good NOT to share:
Thoughts? Ideas? Rants? Raves? All of the above???
Share with the class!
