i love your saints and sinners, and follow it on fan fiction. but if you’re posting here, please notify me when chapters are up, and how to find them! thanks!
you can still follow it on FanFiction. I’m just posting here too. There are some things that i can do with this site like post pictures of items like the painting in Eric’s bed room, Sookie’s engagement ring and such. Then there’s the music…
Feel free to sign up for the updates in the form in the margins. I’ll be posting new chapters to this site a day before I post them on Fanfic.
Ok, please excuse me if I sound like a nutbag but….PLEASE UPDATE PLEASE UPDATE PLEASE UPDATE!!!! That is all. ❤ Thank you!!
Kate I’m sorry to inform you but the lovely writer Ericizmine, has passed away.
great news, just found your site, looking forward to getting updates 😉
Where is your site? You should move over… this site is Sooooo easy. Im kinda techtarded… if i can do it, anyone can…
lemme know if you want some of the links i use.
love this site so glad i found you. i’m just getting use to it. love what you have done with it.
Why did your stuff get deleted from fanfiction.net? Dead Tired was finished there and you were up to about ch.6 on Dead Sexy which I was getting into so what happened? A lot of the fics I am reading from lots of authors all seemed to come down at one time any input on what is going on would be appreciated. BTW your series is AWESOME!!!!
I wish I knew… But I’m working on fixing the problem…
From what i hear through the grapevine, there is someone who is a real critic and is abusing the ‘report abuse’ button.
I just wish FF sent a notice or something as to why since i’m taking my chances by reloading… hence the Word Press site. I don’t want to lose it all again.
BTW… Thanks! 🙂
That really is unfair having a story taken down without warning. So many wonderful authors are being targeted by the attention-seeking, mostly UNDERAGE, trolls. As I understand it most of the members are teenagers! Well, I seriously thought of sending off a tirade, but my wiki sisters convinced me that they just crave the attention. So I am trying to ignore it. I’m just glad that you gals are finding better homes. Cheers!
My name is Piter Jankovich. oOnly want to tell, that your blog is really cool
And want to ask you: is this blog your hobby?
P.S. Sorry for my bad english
Blogging isn’t a hobby for me, it’s the stories I write that are the hobby.
I use FanFiction.net to post my stories but when some of my postings went mising recently, I decided to start my blog as a safety net.
Thanks for letting me know you like the site
I love Saints and Sinners!! I don’t want it to ever end!!! Lol!
Did you lose Dead Sexy or is it still on your computer, I hope so because I love it so much, I was searching for it so I could read it again but I couldn’t remember the name or find it anywhere and then I found Dead Tired and remembered it was the next one in the series so I’m re-reading that one first, hope you post Dead Sexy soon.
Fanfiction is being stupid and I hope they sort out the problem soon or their going to lose so many writers, Thanks for writing, you rock!
P.S. Wanted to say I LOVE Saints and Sinners, I tap my foot waiting for a new chap and I check every chance I get to see if theirs an update, LOL I’m addicted to your Sookie and Eric, SMOM is like the best mother ever and Sookie could get along with ANYONE (Except Bill, BTW Love what happened to him it made me LOL) Tx CG
I so love your story Saints and Sinners, it’s so entertaining and better than most of the stories I’ve read. I started reading Dead Tired and have really enjoyed that also, now that I’ve found this site I’ll be starting on Dead Sexy. Your writing is absolutely wonderful. So far Saints and Sinners is my favorite and hope you continue it for a long time.
I love your stories. I have enjoyed Saint and Sinners. And the Dead Tired and Dead Sexy, great new direction. Since I have seen that you posted you update here more. I will check in.
I was on chapter 8 of Dead Sexy when it went away off fanfic and I was soooooo sad. I also love Saints and Sinners. I am looking forward to seeing more of S&S and DS… Let me know when you are going to have dead Sexy up and going. I cant wait to see what Pam does with Malken and the other girls!! haha!! HUGS Tracee:)
Soon… within a week… hell or high water…
glad you like.
OK… Is Dead Tired & Saints and Sinners different then what is posted on FF? I’m current on both stories as they are posted on FF. 😕
Now I see Dead Sexy is a continuation of DT and it is taking everything I have not to read DS. Believe me that is asking allot!
I read your two Halloween posting and love them. I would love to see what would happen next on both but if it’s not written in the cards I will wait patiently for updates for SAS & DT. NOT 😉
Dead Tired is slightly different from how it was originally posted on FF…
The original chapters have only minor differences in edits, but the general consensus is that the alternate POVs add a lot to the story. On FF, the chapters were all ‘from Sookie’. As I post them here, one of the other ‘key player’ offers an alternate POV.
A few people are rereading, just the alternates.
Saints & Sinners is pretty much the same. Only a few things were changed. Some conversations were originally edited out, but made it to the WP version…
Saints & Sinners is almost done… Chapter 28 is the end…
Life & Death is the sequel and will be coming soon…
Your lemons are unfair!! I am asked to read them from time to time and almost always at the most uncomfortable moments, ie: when the children are still awake and I need to hide “something” because of said lemons!!! They are well written and make me “antsy in the pantsy”! “Nough said! Anyway, keep them cumming and let me read when I can “flaunt it”! All I’m saying. Luver you!!!!
OK – I am officially stalking your site. bahahaha! I hope you don’t mind. I might be single-handedly giving you one of the most popular wordpress sites — record breaking… 🙂
And I luvr u 4 it!
I’m so glad I found Bored to Death –I think the writing is fantastic and love, love, LOVE the witty banter/interaction between Gran and Sookie. I do hope that this Gran doesn’t meet with an untimely demise –it would be such a loss to have this character exit early! This Eric is witty and wonderful –and I always love the strong, sexy, smart Sookie all your stories portray….
Kudos on sharing your talent with us!
holy crap!!! this new design/format is waaaay different. haven’t had a chance to give it a test drive but it looks great 🙂 what made you do the change?
boredom. plain and simple. I wasn’t 100% happy with the other theme. Even now, I prefer reading white on dark, but i thought i’d run this up the flagpole and see what y’all think.
Glad you likey 8D
I really love the site makeover! This is GORGEOUS!!!
I enjoy your stories so much that if there are no new updates I just take turns re-reading them over and over…
If I was in a bookshop I’d buy your stories before the latest Charlene Harris. I would love to have an ericizmine ‘collected works’ on my bookshelf !
Thanks for sharing your wonderful Sookies and Erics with us.
I am really enjoying your stories & I look forward to reading more. Plus I love the layout & all the pictures you have here. It’s always nice to have a chance to drool over Eric.
I am so in love with all your stories. Waiting anxiously, but gracefully for your next chapters for all of your ongoing stories. I just love the way you write with Sookie as a ‘don’t take crap from anyone’ attitude. I love your writing humor. I just wish I could write this way. Thank you for helping with the reprieve between Ch’s books.
You, my dear, are even more addictive than my gorgeous choclcoate and that’s saying something! I read a story and then that’s my favorite, but then so’s the other one and, oh, what about that one!. So far my favorite flavor is Chili-Orange, no wait, honey-pistachio, I mean anything with booze in it, although caramel….
Chocolate I can, with a lot of self control, leave aside. Your updates however, I HAVE to read, Even though it’s midnight and I’m getting up again at 5am. I can try and turn off the laptop and pull the duvet over but I just know I’ll be tossing and turning and it’s just no use. I HAVE to have my fix and am already suffering withdrawal symptoms: where’s Lefe & Dead, I mean The Dating Game, no what about Dead Tired…
I love them all!!!
I love all your stories girlie!! I will miss you while I am moving and will not have any internet service unless the hotels we stay at have wireless… Traveling with dogs 1500 miles is not ideal to get free wireless!! I’ll be looking forward to reading some of your yummies when I’m back!!!
thank you for puting the index back on the margin…i’ve been missing it 🙂
I am so happy to find this site! really enjoying your writing! you have talent! keep up the good work, i’m sure you will! lol!
Love reading all your stories. Haven’t read the infinite series yet though. Finished S&S, reading L&D and Bored to death. read all your one-shots. You should post some of them on the Library Forum. Some members do not read FFN and may not know this site. Just a suggestion 😉
ha when we getting some updates for Life&death or more
Loving alcide’s POV!! Can’t wait to see more.
I love your website. I will be checking often for updates. Thank you for sharing your stories!
I love ALL YOUR STORIES!!!
I do love this story. The way they converse with each other.
On another note, i’m loving your site.
I love Bored to Death. Very well written, fun to read.
Eric’s thoughts are amazing!
Keep me posted on updates!
I just found your wordpress blog and signed up for alerts I was thrilled to see all the new chapters!!!!
I love all your stories and can’t wait for another “Dead Sexy” update. DD
You know what it would be amazing to see a new chapter of? The Dating Game. I just reread the two that are up, and now I’m craving more.
I’m such a fan and I’m so glad to have found your site.
Are you still working on the other POV’s for Dead Tired? I have read all of the original chapters and dead sexy except for the newer ones. You added so much more I have been waiting to re-read the last chapters and start over with dead sexy. Oh and I love Alcide’s pov and Bored to Death……really I just love it all!!
i am loving your stories, can’t wait to read more!
Just stayed up all night to read Bored to Death. My sister writes fanfiction so I got on there to cyberstalk her and that’s how I stumbled across Bored to Death. Aside from one of her stories, yours is only the second I’ve ever read…I’m sensing I’m going to be spoiled from here on out. It is absolutely perfect. I’m a huge eric fan so I’m definitely sticking around. Can’t wait to read more!
I’ve been reading Dead Tired and am totally in love with it. Great story. I was wondering if what’s been posted is the complete story or is there more to come?
I love Saints and Sinners! And everything else too:)
Could you direct me to which chapter explains the S Theory?
just wanted to let know i love all of your stories can’t wait for your updates. loving the BTD and AIW but waiting for more L&D too. Well all of them you have me and my 15 year old hooked she loves to read your stories and she didn’t like to read before so my many thanks for getting her attention to change from myspace and Facebook 24/7
marie from Roanoke Va
When you going to update Life and Death, i know you have so much going on and i am loving all your stories like a vampire on Fae Blood, but the Saints and Sinners story line is so my fave..hope you can update Life and Death soon
I love your stories, you have a lot of different meals on there, do you ever consider posting some recipes? Mainly the breakfast food in Saints & Sinners, that story makes me hungry lol 🙂
i would have to say the breakfast Sookie makes in chapter 11 for her, Eric & Jason…County style potatoes, sausage, milk gravy and cheese. i don’t know what that is, but it sounds fantastic with the biscuit crust 🙂
LOVE THE NEW DESIGN!!! CAN YOU POST THE PICS IN YOUR GALLERY? WOULD LOVE TO SEE ALL OF THEM FULL SIZE!!
I’ve read each of your stories MANY times… I was wondering – which is your favorite Sookie and which is your favorite Eric?
I just want to let you know that I love all the pictures on your left hand side bar. Its bad enough that i load up my iphone with his images and screen savers at work. I would Alex is literally everywhere!!!!!
Just found your story Bored to Death and I loved it! I’m new to E/S fanfic and this was a great one to start with. Looking forward to more.
Love all your stuff–I can’t decide on a favorite. Whenever I read (okay, re-read, let’s be honest) [insert story here], I decide *this* one’s really my favorite, then I restart another, and change my mind again, heh.
That said, I really am looking forward to more of TDG… 🙂
I’m also joining the wordpress revolution (late, as usual), and hope you don’t mind if I link to your site and stories once I get my butt in gear and get time to do it right.
Not sure if it’s just me, but I can no longer see the story/chapter listing on the right hand side of the page nor are the last chapters you’ve written for AIW or BTD on their separate index pages.
My gosh –I think I’ve discovered “the missing links” –all the links on the site are gone and DS and the Infinite In-Betweens are gone –I’ve read DS again and again as a balm to help with the anticipation of the new Sookie book and the new TB season 11 months (ugh) down the road –help! Hope you can re-link soon!
And girl, are you seeing that counter on your site! You’re a rock star!!
In the upper right corner, click on Index. It is another link to a list of all the stories and chapters (what we recently saw in the right pane).
The only problem with that is because of my screen size I need to scroll to the right but as soon I do that the index disappears. Same when I try to get past the amount of chapters that show up on my screen. Try to scroll down and they disappear.
I use my down arrow key and it works.
I absolutely love your stories. I started with Saints and Sinners and have started reading all the rest of them while waiting for the new chapters of your stories. I have been reading Dead Tired when the site changed its format and now I cannot find any of the chapters. There is no link to get to the chapters like your other stories. Any help would be greatly appreciated as I am living and breathing your stories.
Also loved that you continues SS with Life & Death. Please continue writing.
i just love btd i hope you update soon
love you stories started to re-read then again ended up with not be able to read all of it when the system did it funky mix up waited patiently for it to be fixed and it was thanks but are you going to be able to fill in the missing chapters of Dead Tired jut curious. love Alcide in DT and Saints and Sinners. love you KY
I would like to know why chapters are skipped ,42,44,46,48,50,51 on DEAD TIRED? Where can I find you I cant stop reading your stories .you are great keep up the good work
The missing chapters are ‘missing’ because they are yet-to-be-written alternate POVs…
Chapter 40 is in the works now and written from Alcide’s pov.
I’m not sure what you mean by ‘finding me’… I’m on wordpress (which you obviously found) and u can catch up with me on twitter… My homepage has a link.
Thanks for reading.
. . . . still no Life&Death updates. . . . how depressing~
I am dying to find out the rest of Dead Tired. I really love the fic and can’t wait to read the rest.
Like the new look.
much love to all your stories i have read them all and was wondering when you were going to do some more on the Dead Sexy story i could reread all your stories love them that much. Can’t wait for any of the updates and AIW or L&D too.
omg you are freaking harlarious : ) I love all your stories especially the humour that you add everywhere it’s beautiful! However you really need to finish/add more chapters cuz I am going crazy and I know that others probably are two. Not sure how you manage to keep them all going at the same time which is probably why not so many updates : (
Just a note to say I love your stories especially Bored to Death, and looking forward to Meanwhile as well. I usually avoid all human stories but Saints and Sinners was a great mix of characters, mystery and banter. Are you published offline as well? I am sure your books would be flying off the shelf. Thanks for sharing your writing here!
so Ive been following your stories for awhile now. but this is my first time reviewing. I love all your stories, but saints and Sinners/A.I.W. is my favorite, because the stackhouses are sooo much like my family. I also love how you made it snow, as I live in Florida and it is the closest I come to the real stuff. Thanks for writing!
I’m excited to see more AIW and now Meanwhile. Thanks for entertaining us.
I’ve said it before and here I am banging the same drum – you should put out a collected works.
I’m sure there are lots of ‘how to’ resources out there, I found this just as an example of how easy it can be, and all it will cost you is your time:
Personally, I’d like to see AIW and L&D completed, then all 3 S&S stories included. Plus, BTD and Meanwhile and then the Infinite stories DT & DS plus outtakes.That there is a whole book full of ericizmine goodness and I have no doubt that people would pay for a proper downloadable version. It could even be 3 separate books, in an anthology, as each series is completed.
I mean, it’s not like you’re busy with anything else, right ?!
I hope that one day, you think about doing this and I’d certainly volunteer my time to help with any of the admin/formatting/boring stuff if it would be of use.
Regards and seasons greetings,
This is absolutely great idea. Angela, I hope you are considering this…I would be the first (or maybe second, it is Alison’s idea) to purchase this. As soon as I have a working printer, I had already planned to print out S&S, L&D and AIW had put them in a binder so I could add as you wrote them…but to have them finished and bound? Love the idea!!!
I love your stuff and have been following it on FF. I am PO’d that they delete without notice. So, I plan on following all my faves wherever they go. Keep up the good work and I’ll look forward to your next story.
Wow, love your site and creativity. Thank you for continuing to write… even with a newborn!
Just wanted to let you know that I love your stories, and wondering if your going to continue with the other Dead Tird POV’s or continue with Dead Sexy? I know you have an actual life, and have other things going on, I was just curious. Love your other stories too!!
omg!!!!!!!!!!!!! i have been looking for these stories for, for ever i lost the link, your writing is what started my no stop reading, i can believe i found it thank you for writing
i thought there was going to be a sequel to bored to death i really liked it and was just wondering?
I was just about to post the same thing!!! I felt bad asking because asking someone to write is REALLY cheeky. 😀
Love the new look. Very interesting.
Love the new look!
Love the “Margin of Eric”! Thanks for adding it.
Hello. I am loving all of your stories so much! I was wondering when you will be writing more of Dead Sexy? Thanks!!
Just wanted to finally review as I’ve read everything on here, most of it twice. I can’t even explain how much I love your writing. Your characters are so unique, but still recognizable for the most part. You write some of the steamiest things I’ve ever read, but I LOVE the plots even when there’s nothing steamy going on. If the names were changed, you could probably be a best selling author all on your own. I check my email every day hoping for an update to any story you’re willing to give me.
Hey, just letting you know (at least for me) your ‘What I Read” tab isn’t there anymore. And I totally love how you’ve re-designed this layout. Sexy pictures, especially the Rolling Stones cover. *drools* HA! 🙂 Love your stories, you are hands down my favorite fanfiction author. 🙂 Keep up the amazing work!
just finished bored to death!!
loved it!! on to your other ones now!!
I found your writing about two weeks ago and have been neglecting all responsibilities since then 😉
Not sure if anyone else is having this problem but I’m not longer getting emails about new chapters or anything else. I tried to sign up again, but the confirmation never came back in email either.
I’ll look to make sure I’m not screwing up on my end…
Hopefully its just a word press glitch that work itself out.
It didn’t start until after the new background came into being if that helps.
And you know us Ericizmine story addicts, we get a little anxious when we don’t know when a story has been updated. : D
I am still getting alerts. Have you checked your spam or junk mail?
Yes, nothing showed up anywhere.
YAY!!!!! Notification working again.
You weren’t the only one… I’ve already had a few comments that mentioned two chapters at once.
IDK what happened there, but I’ve very happy that it’s fixed.
Lol. Must have been the Bill fans trying to keep us from reading about Eric.
Hi there a link thing that if you like S&S but it’s passworded so how do I go about that? Lol
What do you mean by “Viking”? I’m a Viking! I’m Norwegian!
Hiya, good afternoon! I run a community on LiveJournal, fangreadersLJ
Every month we feature a writer in an author interview. So far missusT and fardesiremai have participated. TexanLady and NYC (The Arrangement) are featured this April and we are very excited to have Terri Botta (Let Love In) for May.
Would you be interested in being our featured author for June? I would love it if you could, but will understand if you can’t, I believe you’ve just had a new addition to the family, congrats by the way.
If you can, please contact me via my e-mail and I’ll send you some questions and all you have to do is fill them in and return them to me, any banners, links, websites etc are welcome as well.
Thanks in advance,
Thanks for the awesome chapter of ‘Meanwhile’…….I hope all well with your writing and we’ll all get something new to hold us over until your next update, then again you may be busy reading Book 11……I wasn’t too thrilled with parts of it but thats just me…..I do have to say that as I read it I was secretly wishing that it had the ‘Juice’ and ‘Style’ your stories have….oh well, thanks once again for the great update 🙂
Just out of curiosity, what’s the plan for the million-hit milestone?
Seriously, it’s just over ten thousand hits away. Will there be balloons & confetti? Maybe a little gratuitous nudity?
Less than nine thousand.
I was wondering about the If you like S&S link? I love all your stories. They really make my day.
Loved Bored to Death when is the sequel coming?
I’m happy that this seems to be phone friendly!
I am a huge fan!
AT the start of the year on FF you said that there would be a sequal to bored to death called ‘The Death of me” but i cant seem to find it on this site??????
Less than 7,500 to go ’til a million hits. Am I really the only one excited about this?
Angela, I was asked for my password in order to view some of your posts and comments. The password I put it was rejected. Anyway to recover my password or change it to a new one? Thanks for you help.
You know I’ve been the pigeon for a while now. I just have to say that today the pigeons ate some really bad food and it was an exceptional day for it.
I appreciate your and effort. Coming home tonight and seeing your update really made me smile.
I love all your stories. I know I do not say near enough. Thanks for sharing your gift with us.
ha i was just wondering i was rereading the Dead Tired and Dead Sexy stories again and now they are gone from the list
hi i was wondering what happened to dead sexy i was reading chapter 6 seeing things clearly last night and this morning i can’t find it i cannt find any of the stories about sookie and eric and the kids on the list will they be back shortly. Iwas enjoying your stories much more than the books thank-you for your version of books
I’ve been re reading Dead Tired on fanfiction, and I know there was a sequel right? But they aren’t on here. I’ve read it before, so I think it might be worse that I know what I’m missing!
Love your work, i find it hard to turn away.
I was just re-reading Dead Tired on fanfiction.net when it disappeared. Was that you or was it the butting mashing gnomes? It’s not in the index here, so I was wondering is you were taking a break from it.
I have the Dead Tired series for my kindle but I am missing the last chapter of Dead Sexy. Is there any chance I could read it before it gets redone?
the dt series is my favourite, is there any way you could e-mail me the original version or something, i would appreciate it
Alright…I have checked this website 7 times today alone…it’s official, I’m obsessed. ;D
Alright…I have checked this website 7 times today alone…it’s official, I’m addicted. ;D
Any news on updates for “It can’t be” and “Meanwhile” ?? Dying over here…
That is really good artist . I’m going to bookmark your website
If you want to swimming faster click : here
i also was reading dead tired on fanfiction and missed the ending to it. please dont leave me hanging! thanks for sharing ur wonderful stories with us.
My neighbor and I have a pretty good story idea and was wondering if you wanted to look at it. We love how you write and thought maybe you could pick it up and work you magic on it. Please look at the info on it we posted at fanfic and let me know what your thoughts are on it. Thanks for your time. And as always we LOVe your work.
Author: StephJ Story: ATTN Authors
Your rendition of Eric is my absolute favorite. Every time I think “I’ll go fic diving…see if there’s something new out there”, I am invariably disappointed and come right back to yours.
You have somehow managed to meld every arrogant quirk and trait he’s ever portrayed into a very real, very “human”, creation and other authors should take note: THIS is how it’s done.
plus, I am never going fic diving again. Or until this afternoon. Whichever comes first.
I love the fact that you change the look of your site. Keeps it fresh. This is no different. Love this look too. I have a, well not a complaint, I’ll call it an irritation. In previous versions of your site, any time I increased the text size, it did so but stayed within the same space on the page. (I know nothing about creating websites, so forgive me for not using the terminology correctly.) No matter how large I made the text, always in the same space. Now, when I increase the text size, it does so, but I would/will have to scroll from side-to-side. Is it possible to change/fix this? To end on a positive….I am now reading S&S for the gazillionth time. Laugh every time!!
I loooooooove the new look…..lol…..its the same template on mine
I’ve been playing for the last day or so…
I liked yours enough to try it on for size…
What can I say? I love your taste.
Love the new look, they say a change is as good as a holiday and we always need a holiday, although i must say i loved the eyes from the other day there is just something about them.
oh wow! fun new layout! it looks much less conspicuous when i’m reading it at my desk at work! LOL
I have been reading your stories since March and this is the first time to commenting. Love your stories especially Bored to Death/Meanwhile. Most of the time I would rather read your stories that do anything else. you’ve got me hooked that i’m pretty much stalking this page everyday to make sure that i haven’t missed an update. Well the page looks great keep up the great work…love your stories
Love your stories.
I love the new look of you blog.
When I created my own wordpress, I used your old template (the pilcrow theme) as a model to build my site. You have great taste.
I have three of your updates still on queue, but I’ll be reading/reviewing as soon as I get the chance.
The new layout looks fantastic! Can’t wait to read more:)
Found your “Bored to Death” on ff.net and loved it. Thought I’d check out the rest of your stories. Keep up the good writing!
Love the background pic, but the sidebar isn’t wide enough for the text to be read without difficulty.
Just read Bored To Death and loved it! I really do hope you write a sequel because I want more of them with Hunter.
Looking for all your Infinite stories on this site but the links are all dead. Where can I read Dead Sexy and the others in that series?
i’m so happy it’s back as i wanted give it a re- read even though i never finished it the first time, stopping at ch. 39. here’s my chance to get another dose of hot vampires, telepaths and werewolves.
I have a request. Could you possible add next links to your pages for stories that have been completed. I am rereading Meanwhile and have to scroll up to click the link to several chapters since all aren’t ../meanwhile/m(Chapter number goes here).
So, can I just say that I must have developed a deep sickness recently…I’m signed up for update alerts and yet I still stop by daily to check for updates, lol. Your brain is addictive!
As you are the mastermind, I’m sure this has crossed your mind, but I still have to ask. Ever thought of a one shot Jump between Bored to Death and Saints & Sinners? Or is that pushing it?
no. It hasn’t crossed my mind. I’m not even sure how that hell that would work.
Yeah, it would be hell to figure out. And perhaps a bit pointless on the Saints and Sinners side, since I can’t imagine they’d gain any useful knowledge from the encounter. But asking odd questions is what I do best.
Love both, but not sure if I would love them together. (Saints and Sinners is my all time favorite fanfic so I am a little protective of it!)
My hurricane preparation: go to grocery store for water and other supplies, get fresh batteries for flashlights and radio, fill gas tank, and most importantly save Bored to Death and Meanwhile to Instapaper so I have something to do as long as the iPad lasts!
I truely love all your stories but i am so jonesing for some LD updates…. I love any eric w babies but i an wait to see that one. He is too funny. Send your mom on over. Ill have cable (baring any tree limbs),generator and booze. good luck to the east coasters. Irene needs to find a rip current and get sucked out to sea.
Ok, I had a dream that my inbox had an update by you and was so bummed that when I woke up there wasn’t one there. Does that make me officially hooked on all things related to your stories. I’m actually kinda worried for my mental health, but jonesing for an update badly. I swear your stories really are turning into my drug of choice. So that being said please give me a fix soon.
I luuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuurve the new look!!!!
OOOO Pretty new page 🙂 i like it alot!!
Hate to be a buzzkill, but the drop-down list of the chpaters run into the banner and other words and so sometimes doesn’t let you click on the chapters. Dead Tired and Alcide in Wonderland are the two I noticed it on.
OMG that is terrific! I adore your work! Guess I am not as up-to-date as your regular readers! I swear I have fallen in love with this blog… Terrific writing! You’re an amazingly talented person, keep up the individuality 🙂
I am addicted to your stories. I hope you keep going because i like your versions more than the books.
I love the format of your blog. It is so much easier to navigate. Any time I get board like Eric I just come to visit here and it is all better.
I had a couple of questions about wordpress for you, and how you set up your site. I want to start writing some things, mostly about my most recent life stuff. I have been mostly absent for a reason. But i wanted to questions etc to be private. can we do that at all? Let me know. Id love to get a chance to talk to you soon. Thanks. Amanda
Ya know, I just have to say THANK YOU. I know we bug you all the time for new chappies (they’re like crack to us…we need a fix…often)….but we REALLY do appreciate that you take the time out of your busy life to write for us (seeing as we all suck at writing…well most of us anyway).
You add a little something special to our lives and we truly do loooove your stories. It brightens up my day to see a new addition to any of the stories you write. I always do a happy dance. I must admit to loving the BTD/Meanwhile/Multiverse world. The more verses you give us, the better (and clever little you has developed a way to give us multiverses until the end of time. Hehe) YOU ROCK, and THANK YOU again!
love the stories and can’t wait for more of all of them. love the new ones can’t quit reading them and wont more of Alcide and life and death too.
not to sound ungrateful, because you update a lot. and your work is excellent. but when can we expect more of the Dead Tired: Resurrection pages? i was working on re reading it back before you took the originals down, and though i read it before parts of it are rolling around in my head lol. i cant wait to re read it. (also make sure the elements i am thinking of really do belong to that fic… so i can assure myself i am not crazy 🙂 like the crazy t-shirts)
this is my first time leaving a message but i love reading your stories and i can’t wait to read more of the infinite series…will you be posting more of it soon?!?! i can’t wait! keep up the good work!
Do you plan on writing the Bored to Death sequel at all? I just love that universe-reading it always makes me extremely happy. I’d love to see a continuation of that story.
hi momy i am at the libery and i will be home aroung 520 ish
In Dead Tired, 1st edition, you highlighted an artist. She did the tree painting. What is her name? If you care to share again.
Dual Shelter by Natasha Wescoat which replaced Tree of Life by Klimt,
lol i so miss the unedited dead tired. it was good for a time filler.
Love, love, love your writing! I’ve read all of the multiverse and got really invested in it. I’m curious about where you’re going with Euro Pass. Being Dutch, I hope they’ll go back to Amsterdam at some point. It would be fun to see Eric rule Europe.
Keep up the good work! X Kirsten
I love all your stories so much…..I just wanted to remind you that I love Dead Tired and I am hoping you will put more chapters out there soon.
i wish i had the money to pay you to work less so you have more time to write stories for us. 😉 rest assured if i ever win the lottery i will insist you work for me full time to quench my viking thirst.
Is there a mobile friendly version? I usually read via my phone and since this new set up. I can not view the index properly nor access the site correctly.
I can’t wait to read the next installment.
Ok. I just got a new phone now. I can view this wonderful website again.
I am loving everything you write but I still miss Dead Tired & Dead Sexy. I know they are being revamped by your betas and I know that you were really unhappy with them in general but could you repost them so the faithful could reread until the new is available. You are only one person and even with the army of betas you have it has to be tough to get stuff done. They were always go to stories for me and I did enjoy them. I am enjoying the first few chappies that are redone but THERE ARE SO FEW OF THEM that it makes me miss the rest of the story. Loving the Multiverse and can see where so many things could happen for the future. Waiting with baited breath. 🙂
Please repost the Infinite series. I am jonesing for a re-read (my 4th). Each time you finish a multivere I re-read that too. I just love your work. I am aware that you have a life but, I don’t and I’m just hanging here. Thank you and Regards. Trudy
Thank God I found you via Fanfiction.net – how else would I kill time waiting for stuff to happen (amazing how much you can read whilst waiting for your coffee in the mornings)… Love your work – you’re a great write 🙂
Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family.
i was just starting to reread Saints & Sinners. was just wondering when you were going to update Life & Death again can’t wait for more of any of your stories
Love, love, love what you do with the Viking!!
You are awesome! These last 5 chapters were totally win and an awesome Christmas present. Hope you had a great holiday! Can’t wait for more.
Just have to say how much I love your stories. 🙂
Didn’t know if you’d seen this already: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uWbypFzm_qg but it’s amazing and a great artwork of Eric.
I’ve been reading Bored to death and the multi verse religiously… finally just read Saints and Sinners and Alcide in Wonderland… All human stories are usually my cup of tea but I stayed up all night to finish both of them. I think Alcide in Wonderland might be my favorite new story. I can’t wait for you to update any of your stories. They are all fantastic!
How bout some Valentine’s Day love with an update? I don’t even care what story. I’m hopelessly addicted to them all! 🙂
Congratulations on winning 1st place for the:

The Adele Stackhouse Award for Reader’s Choice / Your choice for any fanfic that deserves recognition – In the Dark
I love all these stories and I re-read them all the time!
I’m sorry if I’m missing something obvious, but should get the multi-verse stories be read in the order that they are listed on the right side of this blog? You have so many stories, it’s daunting figuring out where to start. Thanks! And congrats on your wins!
The multi-verse is listed in the order is which events happened. The actual first story written was Bored To Death. Not sure if that helps.
That helps, thank you!
Hi just wanted to let you know loving all the stories and voted for you on all of them
but was wondering when you were going to update a few of the stories like Died Tired or Life & Death well just wanted to let you know we still care for all of the stories
could you put the original Dead Tired set on that to go thing you have i love rereading all the story on the go too
hi was wondering when you would update the Dead Tired story or the Life & Death one we miss those too but we love all of the stories can’t wait for more thank you for all of the wonderful reading you gives us
thank you from Roanoke Va
Looking for Alpha but can’t find it 😦
Really missing Eurotrip.
Love all your stories!!
Hey whatever happened to “Can’t Be”?
hey, first just want to say how much I loooooove your stories. They just grab you up and take you with them!!! Have been a fan for a few months now and finally got caught up with all the stories. However I notice it has been awhile for your “life and death” story ….any plans to continue? not that Im complaining , love all the others but the saints and sinners one really got me and then I was excited to see you were continuing it…. hope you get to update it soon….. thanks for your writting:)!!!!
I agree..I love all the stories and have read them numerious times however, I really do love S&S L&D Sookie and Eric and can’t wait to see what is going on with those too…
Oh and Eric junior is a blast too. I know time is very sparse with everyone. I am sure that we all appreciate each and every update you can muster. Thanks for sharing..
I was not a big fan of books 10 and 11 either, and now I have to add book 12 to that too. Very very disappoint. I’ve recently reread all the Saints & Sinners stories (so eager for an update, but understand muses are fickle, and being a parent is a lot of work) and I’m going to start reading the Multiverse for the 3rd time just so I can erase book 12 from my mind. Well, that and because it’s awesome! Keep up the fantasmic work!
This is the first time I’ve left a comment. I really enjoy reading your work and I’m currently re-reading the Multiverse series because I’m avoiding reading book 12. I loved book 10 but book 11 was like sand (or salt) in my shoes. As I was reading and re-reading I had an idea for another ‘skip’. But I don’t want to step on your literary toes…..and I’m a shit writer myself…..so I don’t want to presume anything. I have no clue if you’ve already got something similar thought of or not but I think it’s a good idea. It’s also been nagging at me for a few days so I thought if you’re interested I could e-mail you privately. (So I don’t embarrass myself publicly.) I think It would make a good one shot to go with Nuclear Winter.
If you’re not interested that’s fine too.
Let me know.
No no no… go ahead and suggest away! 🙂
The themes of Rubbernecking was dreamed up in the BratPack during a conversation about What Ifs… That one in particular was a combination of three… I’m always up for new ideas. 🙂
Just curious as to if you got my suggestion.
Love ALL of your stories and have read them many many times. I was thinking how awesome it would be to have a playlist of all the songs you reference in the stories. What’s really on Sookie’s iPod?
Love reading your stories, especially the Multi-verse, but an update for Alcide in Wonderland or Life and Death please!
I love your site and your stories but I was wondering if it was at all possible to send me a pdf or word file with certain stories, bored to death and saints and sinners. I wouldnt ever share them or do anything with them except keep them so i can read without internet connection. Let me know.
Hi I was just wondering if your still doing AIW, ICB and LAD or are they on hold or something? X
Okay I joined the bray pack and I have finally found where I can fit in. Thank you again for creating a wonderful dream world we can all visit. Now on to my question several people have asked if I can make them mp3s of your stories. I personally love them. I will only do this for them if you okay. If you would like I can send you the mp3s first and you can post them if you want and then I can send them there to get them. Please email me back if you don’t (or do quietly jumping up and down in a corner hoping.) Thanks
I don’t mind at all if you make Mp3s…
And the BratPack would love it if you share!
Will do. I’ve finished Saints and SInners (I am currently uploading this) I will now start on Bored to Death.
hi, i was just wondering about where the page went for EIM to go? i looked through the archives to see if there was a notice i missed before i put a comment up but couldn’t find anything that mentioned it. x
Hi. I just got an email from your address with just a link in the body of the letter. The link is as follows without the spaces. http://officeofpoc . com/wp-content/themes/offices/powerup/php?bone+peace. Has your email been hacked?
The only time you have sent me an email is in response to a question I posted here inquiring about Natasha Westcoat.
Hope you haven’t been hacked.
By the way, it looked as if it was sent to your entire contact list. I’ve had this happen one other time to a friend. With the exception of the link, it looked exactly the same.
I was looking for the converstions for some of your stories that you had posted and found that you had taken them down. Is there somewhere else I can get them?
Hey, I was wondering if you could put a link under special features, to the copies of your stories that I can download to my kindle. I had downloaded one of the a few months ago and I have finished reading it. Now I want to load more of your stories on to my kindle. So could you send me a link? I know you said something about it months ago in an email alert. Thanks
In withdrawl……please…..post……sooon. (Picture Eric’s really bad “I’m dying” scene from after the bombing in TB). I’m seriously jonesing for new chapters of Nuclear Winter and/or Rubbernecking? Really, though, I’ll take anything I can get!
I was just wondering if you are planning anything more for In the Dark?
I thought I’d get my wish list out early this year. For Christmas this year I’d like another chapter of:
Alcide in Wonderland – really miss Alcide and Hadley and if this were a book I’d have worn the pages out from reading it so much.
Life and Death – love human Eric and Sookie.
It Can’t Be – this is such a great story, it really needs to be continued.
In The Dark – loved seeing Eric with a whole passel of kids, especially Mags and want to see Eric keep Pam safe
Amen, amen, amen. I could not have said it better myself. Maybe Santa will grant us a few of those wishes.
So excited to see a chapter for “The Confrontation” but it is password protected?! NOOOOO!! Please change it so we can get our fix! Thanks,
I have to ask. Why is “The Confrontation” password protected?
Thanks for sharing your thoughts about Encyclopedias.
love this new layout the cover links are so cute.
Hey! I was wondering- is there a specific order to read the multiverse fics in? Thanks 🙂
The first one was Bored to Death, followed by Meanwhile. Those would be the logical place to start to get a handle on the Multiverse.
I wanted to stop by and say thank you! I spent the last six months writing my M.A. thesis and about two months into it, reading started to become a chore. I just wasn’t in the mood for anything, anything other than your stories, that is. I’ve been on the mailing list for ages and loved your stories dearly, but over the last few months, they’ve really saved my sanity. Whenever I needed to escape thoughts of my thesis and how much work still needed to be done, I could come here and read some other story and just escape my own thoughts to a world where things just seemed to fall into place. So thank you for writing such beautiful stories and sharing them with us, just THANK YOU. You’re officially my hero.
Good luck on finishing your thesis. This is exactly what I felt when writing my master’s thesis. I love EIM stories so much. When things get hard for me…I take a day and just read her stories….it is such a balm for what ails me. I loved your comment LadyAlesha…and agree. Thank you all.
Just wondering if you’re going back to finish off It Can’t Be or Life and Death anytime soon?! Thanks
Can’t wait to read all of your writing! Just found you and am working my way through!
I am not normally someone who gets offended very easily or at all really, but I felt this situation warranted a comment. During this chapter Eric made the statement, “As long as her only reason to keep it isn’t her Christian upbringing.” After reading that I was instantly jarred out of the action of the story by the offensive tone of the statement in the context of Eric and Pam’s conversation. I don’t think there is any other way to interrupt it than being offensive to religion in general and Christianity in specific.
A person’s religion is exactly what they would use to make such a decision in the tragic circumstances in your plot. All religions are a central truth in which a person bases their life around in order to answer the difficult questions we all face. The way you word this sentence is extremely dismissive to all people of any religion. A simple re-wording of “As long as that is her decision,” or “As long as that’s what she really wants and not what she thinks she should do,” would convey the same meaning. As its written it implies Eric would somehow take her choice away if she based her decision on a reason he doesn’t feel is valid. Isn’t the point Eric is trying to make to Pam is that it should be completely Sookie’s choice, especially due to the horrible things she has endured in this plotline? If you are implying Sookie would just do what she thinks her Gran would want her to do, then again, I don’t understand how trusting the teachings of the person who raised you, especially the positive way you usually characterize Adele, is somehow an invalid choice, as if Sookie had been brainwashed.
Maybe I am being oversensitive and I hope I don’t come off as being rude and hurtful, but I really could not let this go.
As Eric was clearly upset and frazzled by the situation at hand… The line wasn’t meant to offend, but to bring attention to the fact that Eric was very out of sorts.
Yes, he does have a generalized distaste for organized religions as a pagan who’s been a witness to many a heinous act carried out in the name of God…
But he does usually show more respect outwardly, or at least, tucks his disrespect away neatly.
He’s been in other situations in the MultiVerse when he’s shown disrespect to religions and religious figures, but the extreme of this situation knocked him off his game and he wasn’t his usual calm/rational/magnanimous spirit.
Eric isn’t much of a sugar-coater as it is, but he’s panicking and in denial about it… Sookie’s religion doesn’t mean anything to him. A moral compass is important, but the aspect of Christianity he refuses to allow consideration for is hell/damnation/sin… a finality that isn’t in Sookie’s future because Eric intends to be her Maker. Why would Sookie need to worry about going to hell as punishment for an abortion when she isn’t going to die?
I just decided to give Rubbernecking a second try! For some reason I didn’t get into it when you first started posting it. I’m now just as addicted to it as the rest of the multi-verse! Can’t wait for more of all the multi-verse and of course Alcide in Wonderland… my favorite one!
Twitching and obsessively checking for new chapters a half dozen times a day. Please, please post again soon. Any story. I don’t care. I just need a fix!!! Lol.
YES, a fix is needed! i’m going through withdrawls!!!!!!!
Wow, it’s been over two weeks. Not even a “with the betas” tease. We hope to hear from you soon!
Is there a particular reading order for your Multi-Verse Series? I absolutely love it, but I have such a hard time following sometimes.
They’re listed in order above…
The book covers are arranged in order of when each story took place and there is a list below that listing the stories chronologically by posting date.
Thank you Leah. That is my question. I love this concept but want to read the “whole shebang” in order.
They’re listed in order above…
The book covers are arranged in order of when each story took place and there is a list below that listing the stories chronologically by posting date.
I’m not getting much smarter here. I’ve read about 3 places where you have listed the order. Thank you….and love your story.
Which stories of the multi-verse are completed? It seems like you stop writing once Eric and Sookie get together… Am I wrong in thinking this?
Intrepid, Bored To Death, Meanwhile, Home Fires, Couldn’t Get Away, Shitheel, Death’s Door, and Precious are completed.
In The Dark and Breathless are nearly complete.
Alpha, Bright Things, Rubbernecking, Like A Rock, Euro Pass, and Nuclear Winter are ongoing stories.
I don’t just stop writing a story once Sookie and Eric are together, and I usually update much more often than once/twice per week, but right now I’m swamped in real life.
Like A Rock and Bright Things are the most frequently updated Verses at the moment.
I awhile back you had pdfs of your stories. Are they still here somewhere? Would love them for my kindle.
After finding who Charlaine Harris has as Sookie’s HEA I find myself loving the multiverse even more.
Amen to that – DEA is beyond awful (though not too surprising after Books 11 and 12) esp. in regards to Eric’s destiny and Sookie’s choices (esp. her going back to the prejudiced and small-minded Bon Temps from the first book presumably teaching that it is, after all, better to settle for boring) so glad to find a multiverse that ignores the final (and appalling books)
loving the new banner…the font is badass 😉 haha
Like the new look, but could you please go back to having each chapter listed.
Agreed, love the new colors and look and the graphics. I understand that the listing of all the chapters was getting wayyyyy longggg but it is ever so convenient for all us stalkers to have the chapters in the navigation pane! Nothing quite like the thrill of spotting a new addition.
Does the site give the option of setting story titles so they can expand with a click to display the underlying chapters? So not complaining about it…..don’t want to sound ungrateful or anything as I just love that you share your talent with us!
If you click on the the title it gives you a page with the chapters listed. It does not however let you know about potential chapters.
I guess I need to look at the side before I comment.
Looks like we got our chapters back.
I want to to thank you for this very good read!! I absolutely enjoyed every little
bit of it. I have you saved as a favorite to look at new things
Do you still have the pdfs available? I would love them for my kindle.
Hi there! I simply want to offer you a huge thumbs up for
your excellent info you have got right here on this post.
I am coming back to your blog for more soon.
Congrats on hitting the 4 MILLION visitor mark. You are just all kinda awesome!
Yikes, I’m going into withdrawal. It’s been 2 weeks. Updates soon? Thanks!
Although I am twitching from withdraw symptoms -I do hope all is well with you -nothing in 2 weeks makes us worry -hope to hear from you soon:)
Hey, just wanted to let you know that the latest email update – I think it was supposed to be for Intrepud – was rife with spam for jewellery & other stuff & didn’t link to the story. Just thought you should know. I’ve never seen that happen before. 🙂
A new fan here. LOVE your writing, and eager to read more.
Hi, I don’t know if you’d realised but the latest chapters of Intrepid and Culture Shock don’t show up on their stories’ web page, but they’re in the index list down the side of the page (LOVED THEM)
Some (less obsessive) readers might not have found them there 😀
I don’t review nearly as often as I should, given how much I enjoy (and reread) the wonderful alternate realities you have created. Every new chapter is eagerly awaited, and like so many others, I frequently stalk your site. So, please, no apologies ever from you about infrequent postings or notifications — there is a plethora of reading material here to savor.
I couldn’t have said it better. Brava!
Is there a better way and or place point out a small technical difficulty with one of the pages? That when I click on the beautifully well done cover for “Keep It In The Family” on ericizmine.com that it only opens up to a much large image of the cover. Which btw is very very lovely.
Okay I have to go read Raw now I’ve been dying to since it came out but was sortof having a White Rabbit moment, “ I’m late / I’m late / For a very important date. / No time to say “Hello, Goodbye”. / I’m late, I’m late, I’m late.”
Thank you for the two new recent Multi-Verse additions EricIzMine! You’re a literary goddess!! Keep the awesome coming please!
Ooops and that when I click on “Rubbernecking” it takes me to “Raw” now…
Oh those things are fixed now! How wonderful! Thank you!
It’s really a great and useful piece of information.
I’m glad that you simply shared this helpful information with us.
Please stay us informed like this. Thanks for sharing.
Have you ever thought about writing an e-book or guest authoring on other sites?
I have a blog based upon on the same topics you discuss
and would really like to have you share some stories/information.
I know my visitors would appreciate your work. If you’re even remotely interested,
feel free to send me an e mail.
Everything is very open with a precise description of
the issues. It was definitely informative. Your site is useful.
Thanks for sharing!
RIP ❤ we will miss you so much
A sad day in our obsessive fan fiction lives. A better writer of SVM FF would be difficult to find. Ericizmine, the person will be dearly missed, but in addition, for us brats the withdrawals will be hard to overcome. You will be forever missed, Angela. I don’t think when you set out writing that first story that you ever could have imagined how many many lives you would touch and how many people from so far and wide you would bring together. We were blessed to know you and touched by your work. Your family is in our thoughts and prayers and you will never be forgotten!
You will be greatly missed Angela. Probably more than you know. I’m sorry you had to leave your sweet babies and your family. I’m stunned and shocked. Prayers to your family. I wish you could know how you touched my life.
You’ll always be in our hearts Angela. Thank you for touching our lives.
Angela, you will always be with us through your stories. You, your brats and beta’s were a huge bright spot in my daily mail. I hope somehow this site continues….
Prayers offered to you and your family.
If I could say anything to you–wherever you may be–it would be this: Even now, I’m sure that people are reading your wonderful stories–with lumps in their throats, smiles on their faces, and fingers at the ready to click to the next page. You and your writing entertained; it changed lives–made them better. You will be missed. You will remain appreciated and beloved. You will go on.
My prayers to your family and friends.
Thank you for your awesome words Californiakat1564, as you know you and EricIz Mine are my two most favorite fan fic authors *EVER* and I hae read A LOT OF FANFIC..So as a fan of both ya’ll I appreciate your kind words. Because your right. She did all of those things and so much more. As devastated as I am I can only imagine how shattered her family and loved ones must be. So many of us truly mourn her passing. I hope her family knows how heartsick so many of us are for them.
Beautiful words Kat. Made me cry again but I am trying to stick with the thought that with all the joy Angela brought into our lives and the lives of so many, she will go on. I still can’t believe it though.
RIP Angela. Your stories have touched many lives and I know that a new posted chapter was a highlight of my day. Your children, family, friends and fans are in my thoughts and prayers.
I can’t even imagine the pain your family is in right now. You made me fall in love with Eric all over again and made me believe that Sookie wasn’t a complete idiot. You will be truly missed by hundreds of fans from all over the world. Rest in peace Angela.
All I can think of right now after reading the postings is a beautiful story cut short. There are books that are so wonderful that when you finish reading you are suprised and kind of sad that the end came. Sometimes it even seems to come from nowhere the ending just snuck up and you feel that you would do anything for just a little more of that world. That is how I feel right now that the ending came too soon in the world. Thank you Angela for the years of stories, laughter, and putting up with our brattish ways. We loved your stories they became better than the original and I would have loved to get a chance to buy one of yours at a bookstore someday. I wish your story would have been able to have gone on longer just like the best stories the ending just came much too soon.
I’m sure there will be an official announcement once things settle down for the family and we can ask, but for now may I draw your attention to http://www.gofundme.com/59jd1g
Kajsa (EIM beta READER and admin for the Brat Pack)
Thanks for pointing the way to that potsiedaisy..
Thank you for posting that link. After the huge shock at such the loss of someone so young and with so much to live for, at least there is something one can do to help if just a tiny bit.
Kajsa, Will the EIM site stay up? Hope so! So sorry for this loss to us in the fandom community and to her family and friends. We’re all in shock, angry, and upset. Can’t believe the stories will actually stop. I found myself checking for a new chapter to Raw, in spite of myself. Thanks for your continued support of Angela’s work.
I have no more words left at the moment.
Tears. Loss. Grief. Shock.
And this is after 16hrs.
I wish I had stumbled on Angela’s work much earlier, and gotten over my Face Book phobia sooner.
Even still, you were on this earth too briefly. Thankyou for sharing your beautiful soul, and your amazing gift with us Angela.
My thoughts go to Angela’s loved ones, know that I will never forget her.
I am just gutted. No words can express how sorry I am for the loss and hope her family and friends will know how much she touched others lives. We are far better for having had her for the short time we did. She will be missed.
I am dumbfounded really. So awful for the family and friends. I will miss her. I did not know her personally but she seemed really neat.
You have blessed so many of us with your kindness and writing. You brought so many of us together and let us read what your wonderful mind came up with. There will never be anyone who can fulfill what you have accomplished by bringing us all together. I hope you know just how much you truly affected all of us! You will be missed.
RIP Angela ,we will miss you
It’s so hard to believe. I knew Angela had been sick recently, but this is such a shock. I feel like some of the light has gone out of the world. My prayers are for her family at this time. I can’t imagine what they are going through right now. Rest in Peace, Angela.
I’m just gobsmacked. It’s so true that the world is a little dimmer today. My prayers go out to her family.
i cant believe this news…. i keep reading and hoping this is a horrible joke and angela is going to pop and and tell us all her accounts were hacked. we lost a truly beautiful creative person who brought so much joy to us for no other reason than she could. my prayers and most heartfelt wished go out to her family as we head into the holiday season. we will miss angela vaughn so very much….
I tried to believe that it was all a joke too, even going as far to contemplate that April Fools was 6 months away until in horror I realized that it was all true. Angela you will be missed, Rest in Peace.
I know what you mean. I keep opening the website and just staring in disbelief. Not sure how to even process this. The only thing I know is she will be missed by all.
RIP Angela, you will be greatly missed, but your work as EricIzMine will keep your memory with us. My thoughts are with your family through this sad time.
You will be greatly missed!! Though you are gone, Your work will live on forever. You touched many people with your talent. My deepest condolences to family and those closest.
I’d heard the name EricIzMine but I was not familiar with Angela’s work. I just got my laptop and Internet connection a couple weeks ago and have been slowly catching up on things I missed in the Eric/Sookie fandom. I just found out about Angela’s passing a few hours ago. I haven’t had the chance (yet) to read her writing but hopefully I’ll get caught up on it. I have a tendency to gravitate toward people who also appreciate these characters. I feel horrible about this tragic news. To everyone who knew and loved, and will always love, Angela, including her mother and children, and the fans of Angela’s work, please accept my deepest condolences. I am so sorry for your loss.
I just found out about this on Tumblr… I’m totally shocked right now. I didn’t know you personally but I can honestly say you will be missed. Your family and friends will definitely be in my thoughts and prayers tonight. Rest In Peace Angela.
Her stories are so warm and vibrant, full of life. I imagine she was the same. I can’t imagine what her family is going through, my thoughts are with them.
She touched so many people with her writing, all over the world. I wish I’d had a chance to tell her that.
My little patch of England is very sad this morning.
I feel so sorry for her family and her children. RIP, You will be missed. Your readers lost great stories, but for your family its so much worse, I really feel sorry for them.
Thank you all for your kind words and generous donations. It will be up to Angela’s family to decide on her legacy and at the moment they understandably have other things on their mind. Nothing will happen in the short term to this website. For all of you wanting to join the Brat Back, we will do our best to go through the list as fast as possible, thank you for your patience.
Kajsa Brat Pack admin and Ericiz Mine beta
I am so upset to hear this news, my thoughts go out to all your family and friends. You have left this world entirely too early. You are a phenomenal writer and you touched all of your readers hearts with your writing, you are so very gifted. You will be missed so much by everyone. RIP forever Angela.
I can imagine even your characters mourning you because they are YOUR characters no matter who wrote their names down on a page first.
A brilliant mind you had Ang. I could never fathom how you came up with all those amazing and incredible ideas. You have left your mark on my soul forever, I will never forget you.
You have expressed my feelings exactly. Rest in peace Angela. I to will never forget you.
When a young, creative, and promising life is unexpectedly cut short, it is shocking and difficult to understand. In Angela’s case, it is all the more tragic given the six young lives that must now go on without their mother. My heart goes out to her children and her family.
My previous post just didn’t capture what I wanted to say, and so here it is.
You can see the mischievous twinkle in her eye and a keen wit behind her secretive smile. Looking at Angela’s portrait on her memorial fund website gives us a rare glimpse at the author behind the fan fiction, who is typically shrouded in secrecy, with pennames and avatars hiding the true identity of the person behind the crazy stories.
To say she was a gifted writer of fiction is an understatement. Her imagination was limitless. In addition to being well written, her multiverse was amazingly complex, with an intricately woven plot that “jumped” between several alternate universes within the “braid.” It was so complex and well constructed that I often marveled as to how in the hell she kept track of all the details, betas and brat pack notwithstanding!
Her stories were witty, sexy, and touching. From the lighthearted, such as found in “Alpha,” to the hilarious scenes in “Rubbernecking,” to the darker, sensitive, and haunting such as “Nuclear Winter” and “Euro Pass,” each tale in the multiverse packed an emotional, long lasting wallop. As another fan pointed out, in all of her tales she incorporated core themes about the importance of love and family, in which children often figured prominent roles. It’s no wonder, since she had six children of her own. What an achievement to have brought so many precious lives into this world! I was only able to have one, and good lord, one is hard enough…I can’t imagine how she was able to do it and still find the time to write such incredible stories. Amazing.
For those of us who were fans of her fiction, we will miss her creative gifts. All of us are understandably upset that her WIPs will no longer be updated, and that the multiverse will not have new tales to entertain us. But the saddest, most upsetting thing is that there are six young broken hearts left behind who now have to grow up without their mother. It’s tragic, heartbreaking, and so, so unfair. She was so damned young. Since finding out about Angela’s death, I have been haunted, sick and worried about her children. Based on what very little I am able to surmise, it seems that she had a strong family support system. But still, as a mom, my heart bleeds for the children.
The childish, Peter Pan (small) part of me that has (barely) survived into my forties wishes that I had a cluviel dor. Maybe it would be cheating (of course it would!) to wish for more wishes, but I’d surely use one to make Angela whole and hale again. To rejoin her with her children and family. If only…
For those of you who are so inclined and haven’t done so yet, the memorial fund for the funeral/medical expenses and children is a wonderful way to express our gratitude for her stories and care about her little ones she left behind. I would bet that Angela would appreciate the gesture to help out her family…
Rest in peace, Angela. We will miss your light, which shone so brightly through your amazing stories.
Angela may be on another realm now but Ericizmine will always be with us. Hopefully her words will always be available to us. What would this internet come to without our daily fix of ericizmine?
So young and so so talented, Angela you will be missed and never forgotten.
This website and Angela’s stories have been a near daily part of my life for over two years. I wish I had commented earlier to tell her how much I have cherished her writing, never failing to bring a smile to my face even on the toughest days. I hope her family may be granted peace in this tragedy. Good night, Angela. Our prayers are with you and yours. Thank you for sharing your gift with us all.
The world seems somehow smaller, somehow dimmer. A brilliant mid and a warm heart is gone. Like all of you, I have enjoyed every word that was written by the ever talented Angela. Thank you for the memories and for this community of brats and betas. I will miss you terribly, and my thoughts are with your friends and family.
Your stories were the highlights of my bad days and the funny moments of the good ones….. Life is not often fair and you leaving us so soon is a proof of it. You will be deeply missed even in my tiny corner of France. RIP Angela…….
An unfathomable loss.
Agreed. The loss is beyond unquantifiable to me. I still can’t even completely accept it.
Since hearing the news I cant get her kids out of my mind. I know donations are coming in now; what happens next year? Here is my crazy idea… one or all of the betas take over writing the stories, in Angelas memory, and add a small monthly fee to the site with proceeds going to the family. Before anyone gets angry at me, I am in no way suggesting Angela is easily replaced, I am trying to think of a way to keep people coming to the site and thinking about Angela and her kids. Just a thought….
Its such a sad and terrible loss and I still can’t fully believe she is gone. My heart goes out to her children and family. She was such a great writer and had such a wonderful imagination that made our darkest days brighter with her words and charisma. RIP and she will always be a part of our hearts
You will never be forgotten… rest in peace Angela.
In the first of no doubt many awards Angela will get posthumously, Like a Rock just won an ‘Energize Award’ for best work in progress in the SVM/TB fanfic. Well done you!
I just heard about your loss Angela, and I am devastated. Although I never met you, you and your wonderful imagination have been a part of my life for 2 years now. You have made me laugh, made me cry, and always entertained me. I am crying as I write this, so i cannot imagine the loss that your family must feel. The world has lost a brilliant and generous soul. You will be missed.
i literally just found out today ive been checking this website daily hoping for an update and the only reason i found out was because i checked inlovewithErics website for an update and after i read it, i didn’t believe it, i thought for sure this had to be a joke only to scroll down and read some of the comments and its still too shocking to comprehend im sadden to hear such devastating news ive been reading your stories since you started on fanfiction.net and ive never been disappointed with any of your work and its beyond depressing to think ill never read another again you were crazy talented and super creative and my heart goes out to your loved ones because though im hurting over your loss I cant imagine how grief-stricken and heartbroken your family must be, the truth is I never really knew you at least not personally but i felt like i knew a part of you by reading your stories. im sorry i never took the time to write you personally but i felt like I knew the kind of person you were with every anecdote you shared or every little tid-bit you’d throw in about your home life with each update, and it truly makes me regret never having made the effort to get to know you you were a better person than most and you carried yourself with grace in the world of fanfiction.(which is a rarity (trust me)
Many respected you and your work, valued you and your opinions, truly a great loss for the fanfiction world and an even greater loss to those who’s lives were touched by yours.( May God rest your soul) If any of her family members read this know that my heart goes out to you and ill keep you in my thoughts and in my prayers and know she was loved by many and she will be missed God Bless.
I’m still in the denial phase. Angela you will be missed!
Thank you for your thoughts, prayers, and kindness. I am Angela’s aunt. Her Mother is my sister. All of this still seems like a nightmare. There is a song that say’s, “When death, like a gypsy, comes to steal the ones you love…..” And it does just that. It steals the ones you love. I do ask that you all keep Angela’s parents, siblings, and children in your prayers. Her loss leaves a gaping hole that can never again be filled.
I remember the day Angela was born, like it was yesterday. I never dreamed that her life would have such a profound impact, on so many people, around the world. You likewise had a profound impact on her. You kept her going through some of the most difficult days/times in her life. I thank you for loving and encouraging her through her writing. I am sure you will never know how much you touched her and gave her the strength to continue going. Know that she loved you all very much. Thank you for loving her unconditionally, and for being her friends and family….. God bless you all.
Donna: Thank you so much for taking the time in the midst of the struggles your family is having, to share with us your thoughts about Angela. I know that it touches me to hear that she used us as support during her down times as much as we have all used her stories to make us laugh, cry and pick us up as well. Many blessings for your family, and especially those children.
I didn’t know her personally but I followed her stories religiously and they made me laugh on dark days. It’s good to know that she too could get support from us. My heart goes out to you as her family and her children.
Hi I know that anything I say will never be enough to curb the pain of loosing someone so loved. Her talent was amazing. I would search her writing out and hope there was always something new. I didn’t know her personally but her writing helped me through a rough patch and I thank you for her.
Thank you Angela for sharing with us!
I just recently found out about Angela’s passing and felt the need to connect here on EIM with the same method she used to connect with us – words. I did not know her personally though felt connected to her through her stories which she so artfully crafted for us so often. My sister found out on fanfiction about Angela’s passing and just couldn’t find the words to break it to me that one of my favorite writers was gone. I am still baffled by how someone so young and talented can be taken from this world. Angela’s writing not only touched people’s lives, it brightened them. Every time I saw an email pop up with an update, I did a happy dance as I knew I was in for a good read – one that brought escape into a new world she facilitated through SVM. She was creative and witty – a brilliant writer. She had this uncanny ability to take you through the motions with her stories. As someone mentioned in an earlier post, she made you fall in love with Eric over and over again and that is a true talent. My heart and best wishes go out to her loved ones. The world has truly lost a gem.
I’ve been refreshing ‘Raw’ all week, hoping for an update and all the while I’ve been horribly out of the loop. I hope her friends and family can take at least a small bit of comfort in the profound impact Angela had on our little corner of the world.
Stopped by just to re-read something and notice there was snow on the Viking! it somehow made me feel better. Thanks
I wish it wasn’t too late to tell you that you’ve made a huge impact in my life these last few years. Your stories kept me afloat during my depression. Your world helped me hide from mine during a miscarriage. You’ve been there, unknowingly, with me throughout it all.
And now, I can finally understand the joys of parenthood that your Sookies and Erics experience after the birth of my son.
Thank you, Angela.
“Goodnight, sweet prince
And flights of angels sing thee to thy rest.”
Amy, your comment made my heart happy. How wonderful for you. We were blessed by Angela.
Thank you for all the love and energy you put into the work that made all of our days a little brighter. You were one of my favorite FF authors, and I know you’ll continue to touch others through your stories. My thoughts and prayers are with your family.
I am rereading the multi verse stories. Love them more each time I read them. Still cannot believe she is gone.
I’m going to start at the beginning again and re-read the multiverse again, yes I meant to repeat myself there. I love Angela’s multiverse it’s so detailed and multilayered, I find I notice new stuff every time I do a re-read.
I have spent the past week or so going back and reading every effing chapter of every single verse and… still completely heartbroken. It’s so hard to believe that EIM is gone. Her amazing talent, wicked sense of humor, crazy intelligence and insane creativity are so missed. Part of me only wanted to stick to the completed verses because an unfinished story grates at me (why I only kinda liked What Maisie Knew – if ever a movie needed a damn epilogue…), but with the ways the verses so amazingly wrap and weave like the braid itself, I don’t think there’s a conceivable way the series could ever really be completed and I take some solace in that. Part of this is selfishly “woe is me! What am I going to read now?” but I also genuinely offer my heartfelt condolences to Angela’s family, friends, and Brat Pack for the monumental loss. I didn’t know her personally, but I hope that you can take heart in the fact that an actual LEGION of fans are still out there and will read, reread, and reread again her brilliant stories.
I hope with all my heart that EIM/Angela knew how much her stories were loved and her talent appreciated. I still find myself looking for an alert to the new threads she had started, then realize that won’t happen ever again. I can’t help but think how difficult Christmas must have been for her family, especially her children. It’s such a family focused holiday. the loss her readers suffered pales in comparison to that.
I think I’m ready to start re-reading the stories now….
You were a blessing to Angela. I/We can’t thank you all enough for your kindness. It makes me cry, every time I read one of your comments because your love for Angela is precious. I know you all met the world to her. Please continue to pray for her Parents, Children, and siblings. The children are lost without her.
Yesterday my phone wiped absolutely everything, including the last post from EIM. I was heartbroken. I had resolutely refused to close the page but now I’ve reopened here and decided I’m ready to re-read from the start (again). I can’t wait to fall in love with Eric (and maybe Gwain a little) and laugh at her amazing wit. Miss you
Jfozz. I am with you. I miss EIM everyday. I have re-read all her stories and am so grateful for all her wonderful, thoughtful, funny points of view. I appreciate you and all her gal fans that is keeping this site active.
Three months have almost passed. Life has continued but… I still can’t read your WIP, knowing you can never finish it. I know I will. I want to! Why on earth would I deprive myself forever of such brilliant writing 🙂 Just, not yet… Soon I hope.
Thinking of you Angela. I know you are out there watching over your little angels!
All my thoughts and hugs to Angela’s family. No amount of time can make the pain go completely, but I’m glad you have some way of seeing just how admired and respected and missed Angela is 🙂
I think about her everyday when I open my mail. I get a little pang of grief.
My thoughts and prayer to Angela’s family.
I’m definitely going to miss your stories. You are a wonderful writer. So sad that you were unable to finish your lovely stories.
words cannot express how deeply shocked and saddened I am to read of angela’s passing. my heartfelt condolences go out to her family and friends. much love xxx
You may notice upon visiting the converted blog is a lack of any images. Once you know how to add them, you can go back and add as many as you need.
What i do not realize is in truth how you are now not actually
a lot more smartly-liked than you might be now. You are so intelligent.
You know thus significantly when it comes to this topic, made me individually imagine it from so many numerous angles.
Its like men and women don’t seem to be interested except it’s
one thing to do with Girl gaga! Your own stuffs nice. Always maintain it up!
I am so sorry for Angela’s family & friends that she has passed. She was a wonderful author who wrote some of the best fanfiction I have ever read. I hope they live on in her memory for a long, long time. I still reread every story & hope I never stop. I hope her kids are doing okay, as okay as they could be at least.
I come to the site to read your stories almost daily, and I still can’t believe that you’ll never have a chance to let us read your finished works.
I continue to keep your friends and family in my thoughts.
Your way of telling the whole thing in this piece of writing is actually nice, all can without difficulty understand it, Thanks a lot.
i will truely miss you. i enjoyed your writing so much more than the original work. you brought eric, sookie, and pam to life with your wit and sarcastic dialogue. i loved all of your stories.
Miss you sweetie :'(((((((((

Wherever you are, I hope that your having a blast! I just re-read the Multi-Verse in EIM order; I had so much fun remembering reading certain things for the 1st time, finding awesome one-liners, and all the times you teased us with chapters. Reading the last line in the chapter you updated…my tears couldn’t hide how much I missed you right then. Knowing that I couldn’t just run over to the BratPack & ask you a question. So freakin sad 😥 We never met in person, but I can hope that one day we will…be ready for all the questions I have for you! haha Until then, you are missed and your stories cherished. I would say be good, but we both know that’ll never happen 😉 lol

Hi, just wanted to mention, I enjoyed this article. It was practical.
Keep on posting!
Dear Samuel, I’m sorry to have to tell you that EricizMine sadly passed away last year so there will not be any further updates to any stories
I do not want to seem insensitive and hopefully my question will not come across as such, but I was wondering if any of the Brats were planning to add the missing chapters to the downloadable stories. I was reading Breathless and it stopped at chapter 5. On the website, there is another chapter. I ask because I do not know how to download a page and attach it a story other than to save the entire page.
Once again, I do not mean to come across in a bad way and forgive me if you think it is an inappropriate question; especially on today. It is just that I loved Angela’s multiverse so much and want to be able to remember it and her for years to come.
Still miss you. Your family is still in my thoughts. Blessings
My family always say that I am killing my time here at web, except I know
I am getting know-how every day by reading thes
i cant believe its already been almost a year since Ive been to this page. i tried to come back so many times after Angela died but i just couldn’t its only after my own personal tragedy’s that i was able to turn back to the multiverse and find comfort here. weve all come and gone grown closer and apart and i cant help but feel saddness and comfort as i read about sookie and eric and all the endless adventures they had and continue to have as angela continues to write in heaven
Why people still make use of to read news papers when in this technological globe all

Dear Angela, I hope you’re at peace wherever you are. Just wanted to say how much I still miss seeing new updates and stories from you and how much enjoyment I still get from re-(re-re-re-re-re) reading your stories. You are missed.
Are you going to post any updates soon?
I’m really sorry to tell you that Angela (EricizMine) passed away last year. There will therefore be no more updates to the Multiverse though I’m sure Angela us still keeping an eye on all of us in the different stands of the braid.
Kajsa (one of Angela’s betas and BratPack admin)
It has almost been a year since you left this plane of existence, still you inspire me. Often when I need a lift after a bad day or need a little motivation to keep pushing through working, being a mom and taking college classes, your stories give me that special something. So thank you and I wish your family all the best.
Still thinking of you and your family. Blessings to you all.
Still love to reread all your stories. They have become like old friends. Miss you . Hope your in a better place.
Just wanted to say that I still read these stories all the time. Angela was a fantastic writer!
Eric has sent me, I love your work and re-read them often!
Eric sent me to tell you we all miss you and will forever be grateful for your stories.
I have just read your stories for the first time. I love them all!!! I know you are not around anymore, but hopefully they have computers in heaven… If they did you would probably still be writing your awesome strories…. Hopefully you can at least read all of the awesome reviews you still get on these!!!
Just finished re-re-re-re-reading all the multiverse stories. And it was, again, bittersweet. Your writing brilliance is sorely missed, as is your sense of humor. I wish your family well, Angela. I know you are somewhere happily playing in the verse.
The loss of a writer of this much talent is heartbreaking, feel so sorry for her family. I have read all the stories here. I love how she used a multi-verse to tie everything together and give different what ifs. The humour that shines through is just the thing that made me laugh so hard I almost peed my pants. What happened to shitheel I don’t see it listed?
Hi Sandcat63, Thanks for your kind words, we all still miss her terribly! Shitheel is a Bored to Death outtake, found at https://ericizmine.com/index/the-multi-verse/bored-to-death/shitheel/ now back to rereading… Kajsa (Brat)
I downloaded the epubs a long time ago but I still come here to reread these stories.
I stumbled upon this blog a little more than two years ago, I never interacted with the author and I’ll always regret it. These stories inspired me. I know that sounds really cliche to say, and I’m sorry about that… But it was this fan fiction, her writing, that inspired me to write. She took a universe filled with beloved characters and made it her own, all while staying true to the original soul of the books. It was through this that I fell back in love with literature. To this day I find myself back on this site rereading my favorite chapters. Her stories are full of adventure and heartfelt moments all tied together with the perfect dash of comedic effect that leaves the reader (or at least me) laughing hard enough to bring tears. It’s perfection. It’s inspiring. It’s absolutely heartbreaking that it will not continue. To add on one last cliche, she may be gone, but she is far from forgotten.
With that being said, if keeping this site up ever becomes an issue for whatever reason for who ever is running it now. I’d lend whatever hand I can to help.
Thank you and i am sure Angela appreciates your kind words. she always told all of us to go after what we felt was good for us. if writing is that hobby , then write and be good at it. as for the site, thank you but we are fine on that issue. KY
Miss you, and I keep your family in my thoughts 🌟💫
I recently discovered EricIzMine and I’m astounded by her talent and saddened by her untimely passing.
The “Saint and Sinners” story links do not work. Is there some other way to read it this highly recommended story?
Hi Trice, I’m sorry to hear there seems to be a problem with the link on this page. Her beta’s are still keeping an eye on things and will have a look. Meanwhile the page itself still seems to work fine https://ericizmine.com/index/saintssinners/ so hopefully you can get your fix that way. We miss EIM terribly and not a day goes by there isn’t something that reminds us of her..
Kajsa beta and Brat Pack FB group admin
I forgot how to get the PDFs for all EIM fics.
It’s at the bottom of the list on most pages – sends you to a Dropbox link. I think they’re epub files not PDFs though, for use in apple’s books app.
Hey, thank you so much for these, would you happen to have digital copies of ‘keep it in the family’ and ‘Raw’ as well (they’re the only two not in the drop box and I’d love to be able to have them
I found myself feeling really nostalgic the other day and just started reading all of my favorite stories by EricIzMine. She is missed.
RinHitokiri, I know exactly what you mean. I’m back here for the same reason. I re-read her whole site’s worth of stories at least once a year. Took me about a year after her death to come back, though. I miss her terribly.
I too would love copies of those as well.
I actually take time once a year to re read the Multiverse in its entirety. 🙂
You’re still in our hearts and heads. Thank you 💔
Feeling bittersweet rereading my favorite multiverse story Like a Rock and thinking of all the stories Angela had left to share with us…
Hey guys, I know we won’t be getting any more of these gorgeous stories, still so sad. But does anyone know of anyway we can re-read Dead Tired in its entirety. It’s one of my favourite stories and I’d love, love, love to be able to read it again
Never mind, I found it. Thank you so much for the dropbox link earlier too, excited to be able to read these even when my internet isn’t working. Ang was such fantastic author, if I could thank her again for the many hours spent reading these stories I would
Angela I just wanted to say that I love you work and miss you everyday. Off to the braid to see if I can find you.
Hello wonderful Angela, wherever you are.
Just thought you might like to know that I have finally been able to reread your stories! Or more to the point, I have them loaded in my text-to-voice app so I listen to them 🙂
Your stories still make me laugh, growl, cry, snort, and other such actions that has my daughter giving me weird looks while I do housework… as she’s 12, I listen with headphones on… eventually I will introduce her to your legacy . Being a mum, I’m pretty sure you’d understand me waiting 😉
I go on MV binges when I am waiting for my fave published authors to release the next book. MV is on my re/read (listen) list, so they usually get ear time every 2-3 months.
Your stories are a gift to the universe I hope to pass on to my daughter. Your Sookies are amazing. Awesome mums, friends, wives, and career women! All of them eventually find their confidence and groove, and each groove ends up being slightly different- but equally Sookie. Something I hope she can look at and see that she can find her way, and find confidence in herself to be and do anything she sets her mind on!
And I want her to meet your Erics. I will warn her that Bored to Death Eric starts out a bit of a bastard, but he never treats Sookie badly. And having Sookie in his life helps him find a balance that wasn’t there before. But I definitely want her to meet your Eric’s and see how a man should treat a woman. Being a single mum, she’s never seen that as my dad died when she was 1.
And as for me, mum-Sookies are fantastic. And are inspirational for me too.
In short, your Sookies and Erics aren’t perfect. They make mistakes. Accept their mistakes. Learn from them (sometimes slowly). And are stronger people when all is said and done. Oh, and I want her to read your Grans wisdom!
So Angela, I just wanted to remind you that as much as you loved your Brats when you were with us, we loved you right back. And we still do!
My love and thoughts to all of Angela’s family. 11 years on I still miss my dad, so I know words won’t help. But please know that you are in my thoughts. And Angela and her legacy will live on with me, through my daughter.
So here I am again, another sleepless night and I spend it exploring The Braid as I have done so many times in the past. My recurring nightmare is that some day I’ll come visit and you and all your stories will be gone. Tonight I’ll read BTD again and eventually I’ll sleep relieved that Eric, Sookie et. al. are safe here where they’re supposed to be, in The Multiverse.
I hope you’ve had a chat with Prof Hawkings, I wish I could have eavesdropped.
Just spent some time with the original infinite stories and even though she thought they were shit, they are fabulous.
I miss her more than anyone should miss someone they never met or talked to in real life. She has left all of us with such a huge part of herself and the braid is my soft place to land when my life becomes too much. Have fun in the braid Angela!
Courtney as one of her Beta’s and friends, she despised that i love the Infinite series. i wish we had time to finish revamping it before she passed away. Thank you for reading and enjoying her work. KY
Our beloved Angela passed away several years ago. That is why there are no updates.
Can anyone please give me the order these should be read. I’m going by timeline instead of when they were posted.
See my reply underneath in a new post
hello if you go to the Multiverse page, it lists the order of the stories by how they fall in the Timeline. KY
Hey! The stories at the top of this page are ordered by When they take place with Intrepid starting with Sookie as a young girl, and underneath the story icons is a timeline by when the story was posted so starting with Bored to Death. Please bear in mind that Angela sometimes had several stories going on at the same time so once you’re a few chapters in, it might not be in order of posting date. Nuclear Winter and Europass have some chapters written at the same time. Saying that, as long as you start with Bored to Death and then Meanwhile, and bear in mind Nuclear Winter follows In the Dark, it doesn’t matter really in what order you read them.
Kajsa Site Admin and EIM Beta
yes you are correct in reading order, thanks for answering the question KY
I just want to thank the admins and those who continue to support this site and stories after so many years. Angela was such a talented writer, and I reread these stories every few months. She left us too soon, and it’s to your credit, admins and supporters, to keep her work alive. Thank you!
the admins and beta appreciate your kind words. KY
Thank you so much for keeping the site up! Saints and sinners was my most favorite story, but everything she created was amazing hands down!! ❤ Miss you Ange!
hello Sheri, it is my pleasure to keep it running for my friend. KY
I love these stories. I read them frequently and will miss the author.
Angela’s multiverse and the braid are very special to me. They have gotten me through an MS diagnosis, along with several other serious health issues and scares. They have gotten me multiple hospital stays, through the night my severe insomnia is dragging me down, through multiple deployments by my husband, through loving cross country from all my family and support system and through crippling anxiety. They still help me through those things and I come back to them any time I need a good Eric and Sookie story.
Angela I hope you’re having the time of your life hopping through all of the braid universes. I hope you know when you left this plane of existence you left behind beautiful stories that will live on and a group of readers whose lives have been made richer because of your talent.
I’m headed back to spend some time in the braid universes again and really appreciate the brat pack for keeping this site going.
I continue to come back to these stories and thank the Betas for keeping the site going.
I hope Angela knows how much we appreciated her work and talent.
Again, thank you.
your welcome and thank you for reading KY
It’s been years since I’ve been here… but I needed a pick me up and these stories have that kind of effect on me where I can drown out the outside world and immerse myself in the world Angela created
I’ll forever miss her.
one of her BRATPACK
thank you for continuing to read her stories. i know she is looking down on all of us. KY
I miss getting notices that you have posted a new chapter. I hope you know how many people enjoyed your writing and how many lives you touched. Thank you for bringing the BRATS into my life. ~Jeanne ❤️
Every once in a while i cant help but come back and reread these stories even as i cry that we wont see anything else posted. I cant help but think everyone involved in Angela’s life got cheated by fate/god/karma whatever you want to blame for the fuckery that is losing her so early
we all feel the same way about her getting cheating from like, thank you for your continued support of her stories. Beta Kristie
I’ve been reading these stories since before she had this page and FanFiction.net was the only place to find fanfic. I come back and reread them every year or so, and am so very thankful for the people who keep this page running. I cried when I found out Angela had left us, and it still breaks my heart when I revisit the Bored to Death or Saints and Sinners universe and realize that we don’t get to see her finished product realized. Thank you for keeping this page and Angela’s legacy alive.
hello you are welcome, this is kleannhouse, I keep her site up and alive and I answer the comments. thank you for reading and enjoying her stories, I know she is looking down at us and smiling. Stay safe and healthy. KY
your welcome for us maintaining the site and making sure the stories stay up for everyone. Have a wonderful Holiday season. KY
Every couple of months I come and dip into a couple of chapters of whatever story I need at that time. Multiverse stories always bring me a lot of comfort, my mum and sister both died before their time so when I first heard the theory of the multiverse it helped me deal with my grief. If the multiverse theory is real then in an alternate reality my mum, sister and best friend (my reason for tonight’s visit) are all alive and living their best lives so somewhere out there in another reality Angela is alive and still writing about her multiverse. Who knows, maybe someday our universes will collide and we’ll get a glimpse of Bored to Death chapter 438
this is one of the Beta’s and yes I too am waiting for the MV where we all collide and see her again. Chapter 439, so awesome. KY
