I will chime in with OY (yes, and even Willa :) -- CH's "probably in the 2nd book" is ambiguous. Again we see her cleaver wording since we can interpret this to mean "someone besides Bill is the MAIN romantic lead = Bill is not the HEA" OR "there will be more than one romantic lead = Bill, Eric, or Sam is the HEA" OR "the next romance will be the main one = Eric is the HEA since their romantic interest in each other began in #2 LDID".
And IMO Quinn is the rebound, but I think she rebounded from Eric, not Bill. Sookie got involved with Quinn more as a defense/distraction against her feelings for Eric from DTTW. While she was wounded by Bill, I did not see her harbor any feelings for him while she had her fling with AE. Yet during her time with Quinn, she was contantly aware of Eric and her feelings for their time together.
4730 duckpond100 2009-07-03 07:49 "Pam has not knowingly lied to Sookie yet."
This is an interesting little bit of information from CH made back in 2009. And it falls right in line with my theory that Pam has unknowingly lied to Sookie at Eric's direction, and that she called Eric on it, which led to their fighting in DR.
Which may be why CH has told us Pam has her own ambitions.
This quote was over three years ago...she was writing DITF at the time or had just finished it. In 2012 CH wrote book 13 (DEA), in 2011 CH wrote book 12 (DL), in 2010 CH wrote book 11 (DR), and in 2009 CH wrote book 9 (DITF). This quote is in July which is the month she is closing up the current book she is writing which was DITF.
Also, what was the question? I doubt CH just came out on a board and posted that ONE sentence because she's a writer (duh). If it's just a question from a poster then it's just a question and not a conspiracy to give us messages from the great beyond.
But we know why Pam and Eric were fighting in DR - Pam wanted Eric to tell Sookie about Freyda and the contract, and Eric didn't want Sookie to know and forbade Pam from discussing it. No great mystery there Willa.
Willa is just trying to make it look like Pam has her own ambitions because "Eric is evil"....he's a horrible Maker, yada, yada, yada.....
Pam has her own ambitions because Eric is actually a good Maker and allows Pam to be her own vamp. If he needs her he asks her to come...and she does. But she is allowed to go when she wants. Even Bill points out in DUD or LDID that Eric is a good boss/sheriff. And the quote from CH/2009 doesn't have anything to do with DR. Was Eric wrong to withhold the info from Sookie and to make Pam "NOT" tell Sookie? yes, yes and yes again. (Did he not learn anything from Bill's mistake? And I know he was trying to get out of it first...but still wrong)
I'm afraid Willa forces a lot of connections that just aren't there....what was the latest one? the world "wonderful" being said by Bill in one book and Sookie in another? Every post is to make Bill the HEA and Eric the devil....
CH just posted on the cover discussion 3385 "Of course, once you read the book you'll understand her outfit perfectly."
******************************************** Another tidbit, really not spoiling anything! I wonder where Sookie's going dressed like that? We know she's wearing a yellow dress to Jason's wedding, so to what event is she dressed for? I'm really looking forward to this book. I'm also very, very disappointed we aren't getting a chapter at Christmas. Jim Butcher is starting to post chapters of 'Cold Days' at Halloween. I just wish we had more meat in our 'tidbits' from CH.
@Oh Yes - I can see Sookie staking Freyda, but only if she is a threat to a life Sookie cares about, or of course, her own life. If it is just over Eric, Sookie won't do it unless his life is on the line. As much as Sookie loves Eric, in her mind, IMO, she wouldn't kill over jealousy. As it should be. ;) I enjoy reading about Sookie, I love her jealousy, even over old loves, and appreciate that she knows when she's being petty. We all, or at least I'm guilty of this, have these thoughts.
That would be funny but I'm sick and tired of all the female characters out to get Sookie (and her men), and Sookie & Co. killing them off. Enough already. We need some more female characters like Pam thankyouverymuch.
I also would love more strong female characters. I can't see Sookie staking Freyda at her own wedding in front of other vamps w/o some form of retaliation. A queen being staked by a human just wouldn't be tolerated IMO.
I agree Karen, but she might kill her if she is coming after her - as in a preemptive strike like Victor. But I certainly agree that she wouldn't just kill her for the sake of preventing Eric to marry her. It would either be self-defense of preemptive IMO.
At least we have Pam, but yeah the Lorena, Arlene, Sarah Newlin, DP, SP, JL....road has been a bit predictable so I would love it if OK and Eric worked together to take out Felipe - in fact, I would rather that happen and I think it is a good possibility.
I agree that I don't think that Sookie would go all "Buffy the Vamp Slayer" after Freyda.....unless she was attacked in some way.
....wonder what Sookie and Eric would have to do to break their marriage (IF that is necessary)? It was said that she would have to be put aside. That would create an interesting "conflict" / situation.
I was thinking at work today. What if Eric decides to strike a deal with Freyda. He will come to her and stand by her, help her go against Felipe and take LA, etc. His stipulations being he gets to stay married to Sookie and no intimate relationship with Freyda. THAT would bea win-win situation for everyone :)
