Dear Mr Ball,
I’m a concerned fan of the True Blood Series and Sookie Stackhouse novels. I read the books after watching the first season of True Blood. I purchased and watched True Blood Season in few days and then I was ready for the season 3 opener. Basically I’m hooked, but it was obvious from the start of the DVD’s that the books and show were quite different. But I wanted to give the show a chance because of the immense affection I felt towards the characters in the books and especially towards Eric Northman which Alexander Skarsgård plays brilliantly!
My main concern is the direction the show is taking the Eric/Sookie relationship and how far (at this time) it’s veering away from the main story of the books. Bill is exposed and diminishes which paves the way for the Eric/Sookie relationship to blossom. But the show isn’t following that direction it appears.
Your comment at Comic Con “I believe Bill and Sookie are soul mates. I personally root for things to work out between them. I believe their love is true.” created quite an uproar with the Eric fans, me included. If you take the show that direction you will have veered so far left that you will leave the Eric fans behind and trust me, they’re/we’re not happy now and you will lose us.
For us Eric fans the the relationship between Sookie and Eric is very important, and we have been waiting for almost 3 seasons for any progress but all we got is dreams. Sookie and Eric are the soul of SVM books and we have been waiting for it to be done justice in True Blood. We do not want to see Sookie and Eric in a fling! It’s a great love story!
We hope you will take our comments and concerns to heart and bring this story to life on the screen.

You can copy/paste the letter there and choose the show you want to address. You can also write your own letter, or just add to this letter :)
Again can I just say: I love fanatics. They fix everything. (And if I don’t see some hot Eric action soon I’m gonna be pissed!)
I second that.
While I would like to see Eric and Sookie together, the show is a whole different entity. If they followed the books, Lafayette would be dead, Jessica, The Magister and several other brilliant characters wouldn’t exist on screen. I think it would be nice to enjoy each for what it is. Entertainment.
- What is your favorite #TrueBlood quote of the season thus far?

October 24-November 22 Scorpio is the eighth sign of the zodiac and symbolized by the scorpion. This is one of the most powerful and intense signs. Scorpio is ruled by Pluto and the element is water.
Scorpios are complex people, deep and mysterious and difficult to figure out. They might appear calm and collected outwardly, but lurking inside could be a seething emotional volcano waiting to burst out.

Scorpios possess a strong rebellious streak and have progressive views that throw conventional thinking out of the window. Jealousy is a vice that has a strong presence in their lives. They do not forgive slights easily and bear grudges for a very long time. They can be rather callous towards others’ feelings and can be blunt to the point of being hurtful at times. This is a major peeve that others have against them.
