I’m feeling kind of bloggy, so, yeah, here we go.
I can’t wait for next week’s epis… Oh.
Realistically I know that I shouldn’t be all sad and shit over the ending of some mostly-crappy HBO spew…but I am. It’s because of True Blood that I even FOUND the marvelous, fun, frustrating, and unique world of fanfic to start with, and now the show’s OVER?
HOW CAN THAT BE???
SVM (the books) didn’t come along for me until after I’d started watching toward the end of the 1st season. But once I was told that the series was based on these books, naturally I inhaled them ASAP. Then, of course, I spent a few minutes being utterly confused by the weird changes from the books, but hey, I got Lala and Godric, so it was all good.
Then of course I realized that I detested whatever the hell it was that CH shat out as her last 2? 3? “books”. (I’ve so successfully ignored CH’s recent shattings that I don’t remember now HOW many she’s crapped out. They’re all bird-cage coverings for all the shits I give.)
No matter how badly The Twit decided to fuck up the entire story, I will always love the first 8 books. It just might be another decade or 3 before I can make me read them again…
But…yeah. So, TB’s over now. There’s no more anticipation about an upcoming season, no more ‘ticking days’ till Sunday night…and, honestly, no more bitching and griping about how badly they’ll fuck up the last season or, especially, the finale.
Which they did.
I dunno why they decided to present Eric as a used-blood salesman – having him sell “New Blood” was a great plot idea, but they had him coming off like, yeah, a used-blood salesman. I dunno why they decided to present Pam as a pimp/madame schilling out Sarah’s blood. But, they did. At least Eric’s not in any sort of marital incarceration, so that’s a good thing. And Pam’s alive, even if she does look like a Republicunt – terminology made famous by her own self. I dunno why they decided to foist Sookie off onto some unknown Brutus-looking dude who is most likely a Were considering that she’s a TELEPATH who can’t stand to be all that close to HUMAN men… (Srsly, to me he looks like Brutus from that old Popeye cartoon.),,,but at least her uterus served its all-important purpose, I guess. I’m glad Lala is happy with Jessica’s bf, and I’m glad that Jessica is happy with Bridgett’s bf (Hoyt), and I’m glad Jason is happy with Hoyt’s gf (Bridgett)………but still. (I guess that’s her name – we knew her for, what, 12 minutes max?)
At least they gave us fic writers PLENTY of material for rewrites, fixes, and future plots, though.
If I cared enough to pursue them, I’ve already got at least 3 different fix-it plots in mind, but…meh.
Even before this fiasco of a final season I was starting to get tired of some aspects of the fic world, and this ending has not helped at all.
I’m a bullheaded Taurus, though, so I’m not going to stop writing my on-going fics even if I do pull back from it all a little. There are still a LOT of fixer/rewrite stories left to tell, and I’d like to tell a few more of them myself, maybe, if I ever leave the dubious halls of Mehville.
Godric and Eric and Andre, yeah, I’m still ‘addicted’ to my vamp-dudes, even if HBO fucked over two of them and, thankfully?, ignored the third one. (I still wish horrid rashes and a rather strange clown fetish-phobia combo on whoever decided to kill off Godric.)
Anyway, what are YOUR thoughts on the ending of TB? Loved it? Hated it? Ignored it? Pretending it didn’t happen? Still WTF’ing? Feel free to vent.
