I was sitting here just now looking at the new story update from CaliforniaKat in my inbox and a terrible realisation came over me; she is the only author in a very long list of authors I follow still updating.
I did a quick mental flip through all the stories I love which are still WiP’s and it dawned on me that it is very unlikely that any of these will be finished, and my heart broke: Virala, VictoryinTrouble, InLoveWEric, Queen of Area Five….. and that’s the short list. The heyday of True Blood fanfiction has really come to an end and poor Eric and Sookie are no longer at the forefront of people’s minds.
I am truly saddened by this.
So to those authors I love and respect, I say thank you. Thank you for your stories, those completed and incomplete. Thank you for keeping Eric and Sookie alive for as long as you could. I appreciate your work and your time.
