Chapter 3: An Abuse Of Power

Life & Death

Chapter 3

Abuse of Power


“Shit! Love, wake up!”

As my eyes opened, I realized that Sookie was facing me on my lap with her hands on my stomach. The room was full of morning sunlight and the fire had long since burned out.

When my eyes met Sookie’s, she giggled, “We crashed.”

I rubbed my eyes. “No shit. What time is it?”

“8 o’clock.” That gave us half an hour to get to the airfield… 20 minutes away… shit!


She laughed, launching herself out of my lap towards the kitchen, still wearing the green evening gown from last night.

It took me a minute to get my bearings. My knees were stiff from the way they’d been propped up and since Sookie had slept on me, Tippy used the extra room on the chair to snuggle in next to my hip. It brought new meaning to the phrase ‘up my ass’.

I reached down to pick her up… getting her most of the way to her ‘to-go’ box before she woke. She started squawking ‘go-go-go’ right away… at least there was one thing I didn’t have to argue with her about. She didn’t mind a travel crate because she liked a change of scenery.


I could smell the coffee brewing when I came back in from letting Cujo hose down the lawn. Sookie was already wearing painted on jeans a snug blue sweater and boots and unplugging the chargers for our phones, the docking station… My clothes were laid out on the bed already.

She kissed my cheek as she sped through the bedroom in hyper-drive… It was enough to make me dizzy…

And by the time I was on my way down the hall Sookie had filled two giant travel mugs with coffee and set them on a cooler bag… and was using a lint roller on our P-coats.

“Is there anything left for me to do or did you do everything already?”

She smiled while she worked. “There wasn’t that much to do and you got to do the fun part… you got to take your clothes off.”

This was going to be an interesting flight…


When we got to Dirges, the pilot, Terry and Rene were busy loading the cargo hold of the plane… and there didn’t seem to be an end in sight.

“Jesus. Fucking. Christ. Sookie, how much…?”

“That’s not us… or Alcide. If it isn’t in the car, it’s in New York already. That’s the rest of the locals… there’s more than 20 of us… squared.”

“The family should’ve arranged to have an entire Target delivered to the apartment.”

“They might have… but if it makes you feel any better, Linda, Tara and Had are all fond of gift bags and they take up a lot more room than the gift itself.”

“Maybe… but how are we all getting home?”

“Love… we own the plane… if we need it to take extra trips, it will.” We own a plane… holy shit.

“Do you think we need to do some extra shopping for Lex? So she gets as much… I don’t want her to…” I stopped talking when Sookie started looking around like she’d been up to something.

“Lex is more than covered… after overdosing on boy stuff with Hunter, Jack and Carm… even the Horsemen had fun shopping for her.”

“Your father?”

She cleared her throat. “He won’t tell me.”

“Has he given you a hint?”

“Brace yourself… It fits in his pocket.”

“Oh hell! It could be anything with that damn Mary Poppins jean jacket of his!” She started laughing, but one day he was going to pull a coat rack out of that fucking thing, I swear.

“He promised that he cleared it with Rachael.”

“I suppose she’s been sworn to secrecy?”

“So he says.”

At least I don’t have to worry about Rachael not wanting to talk to me anymore over it, if she knows what’s going on.


The plane was… Ok, I’d been picturing a Patsy Cline/Richie Valens type of twin engine, gliding death trap.

I could tell it wasn’t from the outside but it wasn’t until I stepped inside that it really hit me.

There were couches. A desk. An entertainment center. A kitchenette. A bathroom that I wouldn’t have to turn sideways to get into… and a bedroom. The damn thing had a fucking king sized bed in it.

Sookie went straight to the kitchenette and started taking things out of the insulated bag…

In the amount of time it took for the dog to spray down the yard, Sookie had managed to put together breakfast burritos and a fruit salad…

I’ve watched her work and I still don’t understand how she does it.

She disappeared into the cockpit for a minute to deliver the pilot’s breakfast and then returned to sit next to me with our plates.

I had just taken a bite of my burrito when my phone started ringing.

I heard laughing before I had the chance to say hello.

“Morning, Kenya. What’s so funny this early?”

More laughter. “Oh, federale! When do you leave?”

“We’re about to take off now. Why?”

“Because we’re waiting for an ambulance to come fetch our special guest.”

“Did you shoot him?”

She started laughing a little harder. “No… somehow a raccoon managed to slip into the cell and bite Quinn… then he somehow slipped out again.”

I finally understood what was so funny and nearly choked on my breakfast. “So someone needs to go get a… series of rabies shots.” That was all the Christmas present I ever could have asked for.

“Poor guy.”

“Oh. My. God! You’re my hero!”

“Don’t thank me. I don’t know anything about raccoons.” Kevin. That funny mother fucker.

“Well thank you for the update.”

“Anything to make your holiday merry and bright. You make sure to send us some pictures.”

“Will do.”

I didn’t explain to Sookie… I called Alc.

“Hey old man. Need a favor.”

“Good morning to you too, asshole.”

“Kevin arranged to have Quinn attacked by a raccoon last night in holding. Can you run to the gun shop and pick up that scope he’s been creaming over?… from Santa.”

He hissed out a creepy laugh. “You bet your dick I can… How’d the dog do? He’s not fucking with the bird, is he?”

“No. He’s fine… Sleeping in his crate. We’ll let him out in a bit.”

“He didn’t fuck anything up did he?”

“Nope. He crashed in front of the fireplace when we came home… he’s a good dog.”

“Thank God for small favors.”

“You’ve gotta think of a name for him though… He’s going to get used to being called Cujo.”

“Yeah… I wanted to let the boys name him though. Hopefully he’s smart enough to not get too confused.”

“Loves table food.”

“You dick! He’s going to be a beggar!”

“Like you?”

He laughed. “Fuck you. I’ll eat whatever gets put in front of me, but I don’t beg!”

“But you’ll lick anyone who feeds you.”

“So!… that’s not the point… So just the scope, a bow and a thank you note from Santa?”

“Yeah. It’s the least I can do.”


As soon as I hung up my phone, Sookie slapped my leg, laughing. “You’re awful!”

“Which part? Being happy that Quinn needs to go to the vet? Or being proud of Kevin for thinking of a raccoon? Come on! It was a raccoon! That was fucking brilliant!”

She laughed. “You win… I wonder where the bite is.”

I smiled, texting Kenya and went back to my breakfast until she replied.

I nearly choked again… Her reply was a photo of the back of Quinn’s neck… 3 bites… swollen and nasty… he wasn’t nibbled… the raccoon in question went after Quinn like he owed it money.

The swelling and bruising was going to make moving his melon fucking head hurt like hell for at least a week. After the kidney shot he got from Jason and the punch to his dick from Sam, pissing was going to be miserable for a while too… I couldn’t think of a ‘better’ guy for it to happen to.

Sookie snorted coffee through her nose when I showed it to her.



Once we were done eating… we tried to stop laughing about Quinn’s ‘luck’… but it took a while.

Finally… “Ok. Spill. Your dad and Keisha. What do you know?”

Her eyes got wide and she started to look excited. “I don’t know. I heard rumors about her… but it was hard to not get excited when I saw her sitting with him last night.”

“What did you hear?”

“Dawn said that one of Daddy’s houses has a new tenant, but there isn’t a lease. They just moved the house from the available list.”

“Hannah hasn’t done any gossiping? Doesn’t she babysit for her?”

She shook her head. “She’s gonna get it too… Nearest I can figure… Keisha and Supaul didn’t work out after all.”

“Why’d they split in the first place?”

“Daddy and Kenya both mentioned that they just weren’t working out. No cheating or beating… just didn’t like each other anymore. She started dating Daddy after he moved out… but they were still in counseling because of Crystal. When they found out Dixon was on the way, Daddy was furious that he didn’t have a good reason to put up a fight. Especially since he hadn’t put Sheila out… He was a complete prick for a few months.”

“Dixon was all over him last night.”

She giggled. “I saw that!”

I shook my head at her. “It won’t be weird for you to sort of have a stepmom our age?”

“Never… No more than it’s weird for Daddy to let me marry a guy I met 2 months ago… she makes him sooooo happy… And I love her to death.”

“Kenya would be… like your aunt.” And she’d have step siblings in the same age bracket as our kids.

She shrugged. “Might as well be family. Their dad, Hugh, volunteered with Daddy for years until he got too fat for his turn out. That’s going to be the problem… Hugh flipped his bigoted little wig when Keisha married a Cambodian. Hugh will completely gloss over the fact that Daddy is his age and be pissed that his little girl is dating a white guy.”


“Oh yeah.”

“Even though, your father doesn’t have a racist bone in his body?”

She laughed. “Like it or not, we’re still in the south and you’re still going to find the old school problems. You might have been in the Stackhouse bubble too long.”

“Not long enough. It’s nice there.”

She smiled and kissed my cheek. “Tell me about it.”


Sookie sat at the desk wrapping the stocking stuffers we got while shopping yesterday while the entertainment center played The Ref.

Classic dysfunctional family Christmas dynamic. It was absolutely hilarious and it easily killed the first couple of hours of the flight.

By the time it was over, the dog and the bird had been set loose… and both came to me for attention since Sookie was busy.

Tippy pecked at Cujo’s muzzle for getting to close… and he got her back by huffing snot all over her.

I was called an ‘ass-oh’ for laughing.

“You shouldn’t have pecked him.”


“No, he wasn’t. Be nice.”

‘Noooo nooooo.’

“Sookie, I’m arguing with a damn bird.”

“I still love you.”

“Even though I’m retarded?”

“A retarded sex god that gets me.” She looked up from her wrapping station to smirk at me.


Sookie finally stood up, proclaiming herself ‘all done’ and disappeared into the bathroom for a few minutes.

When she came out, she was wearing a wicked smile… like she was up to something.

She shooed the animals away and put her hands on the couch behind me to lean over for a kiss…

It only took a few seconds before I grabbed her hips and pulled her down to my lap.

Her hands worked to open my pants until she pulled away for air, working her way down my neck… and moving just enough that I could see that we had an audience.

Tippy and Cujo were leering at us. Fuck…


She hummed against my ear… chills… throbs…

“Sookie, we’re being watched.”

“Is this going to be like the flight to Miami?” She barely broke contact and went right back to my ear…

“I’m never going to live that down, am I? Someone kept knocking on the door.”

She giggled and raked her teeth down the side of my neck… “You left me high and dry.”

I had to clear the lump from my throat. “You weren’t all that dry if I remember right.”

She sat back wearing her ‘rape face’ and tugged her sweater to pull it over her head…

Underneath, she was wearing a dark blue push up…

And then she backed away…

And started opening her belt as she swayed back to the bedroom…

I didn’t have the patience to watch her walk away.

I caught up to her, scooping her up and barely managed to close the door before we could be followed.

We fell to the bed and I pulled her bra away… my mouth to her nipple and my hands started fumbling with her boots…

The only thing to not like about her tight jeans was getting her out of them…

She was trying to yank my jeans away while I was trying to get hers out of my way…

We gave up… realizing that it was going to take forever and started peeling away our own…

And crashing together again as soon as they were gone…

She wrapped her lips around my cock…

One of my hands tangled into her hair… the other found her clit…

She moaned and whimpered… twitching while I tried to distract myself even a little…

It was too good…

Every noise she made vibrated around me…

Feeling it in my teeth…

So fucking good…

Her hips bucked when my fingers slid in…

Wet and waiting…

Pushing until neither of us could take anymore…

She straddled me, facing away… and when she slid onto me… tensing, gripping around me…

Mmmmm… Fuck

She braced herself against my legs, leaning forward… riding slow… faking patience…

Giving me nothing but her hips to hold on to…

Nothing else to do but feel what she was doing to me…

I sat up enough to take her arms, leaning her back…

Lacing our fingers together so she could brace herself…

Grinding down on to me…

Faster and faster while her breathing became a constant whimper…

Her break… her body took over, wrenching, pulling, holding and she laid back against me…


I rolled us over, putting her on her knees…

Pulling her back, bouncing my thighs against hers while she growled into the mattress…

Watching the sweat bead up in the small of her back…

Watching her knuckles turn white, grasping at the covers…

Until her hips pitched…

Her tell…

I was robbed…

Knocked off of my stride…

Bullied into finishing and collapsing into the bed next to her, trying to catch my breath.


I slapped her ass. “One of these days I’m going to win, damn it!”

She giggled into the mattress, not moving otherwise. “Is cuming at the same time such a bad thing?”

“No, but I was doing fine until you came again.”

“You figured out how to get past the first time.”


“Quit crying. It could be worse.”


“You make me cum so hard I could break your dick… Ask around. Not a problem.”

“I’m allowed to have goals.”

She giggled again. “Yes sir, you are.”

She rolled over, snuggling up to me…

And we dozed off.


We woke up to the pilot’s voice…

I missed the first part of the message, trying to grab for blankets until my dumb ass woke up enough to realize his voice was coming through the speaker system.

“…final approach. You should secure the animals… The temp on the ground is 22 so you southerners should bundle up… It’s snowing.”


All it took to get Cujo back into his crate was opening the gate and pointing… he wasn’t happy about it, but he hung his head and went in all the same.

Tippy was a complete pain in the ass… She was mad about being locked out again. She flew away making me feel like a complete douche for having to chase the little bitch.

Sookie came out of the bedroom, straightening her belt to my cussing and Tippy’s… “Awwww… Is he being a meanie again?”

The feathered shit fell for it. She thought she had a defense team and flew directly to land on Sookie’s shoulder and nibbled her cheek. Sookie calmly reached up to pet her and grabbed her to hand her to me.

“This is why we don’t like taking you anywhere.”

Sookie smiled at me while she grabbed a couple of teas for us and snuggled next to me until we landed.


It took a while for the doors to be opened and Tippy cussed and squawked the entire time. The dog even seemed to tell her to shut up… the surprisingly deep and menacing bark he gave stunned her, but she went right back to being a twat while Sookie put away all of the gifts and supplies from her busy work.

The blast of cold air hit us in a blitz. It had been 54 degrees when we left Bon Temps…

Even though Sookie had brought blankets to cover the crates, they both glared at us like it was our fault they were cold for the whole ride to the building… In a fucking limo…


There was a plump man in a long cashmere coat with jet black mutton chops standing on the sidewalk. He smiled with his whole face as he opened the door for us so at first, I thought he was the doorman.


“Miss Sookie and Mr. Eric. Nice to finally meet ya in person.” The familiar drawl belonged to none other than Bubba.

I held my hand out to shake his. “Good to meet you too.”

Sookie, of course, hugged him and as she stepped back, his ‘belly’ moved. “Oooh! I didn’t hurt him, did I?”

“No ma’am, he’s just restless.”

She smiled at him. “Well then let’s get the critters out of the cold and you can show me what you’ve been up to.”

He grinned with a nod and swung his arm out to let Sookie lead the way.

Sookie nodded to the doorman who greeted her with a very formal ‘Miss Stackhouse’ and he followed her closely until he went behind his reception desk.

He stiffly slid a stack of papers and envelopes to her and a pair of keys. She thanked him and got a very stiff ‘yes ma’am’ in return.


The fucking place was amazing… The main room of the apartment was as big as the gym at the high school. Easily big enough for a basketball game if it weren’t for the humongous 20 foot tree lit with nothing but blue and white lights.

I looked over the room as I set the crates down. Hadley had ordered the furniture and sent it ahead.

Dark blue couches, club chairs and ottomans…

Light blue and white pillows and rugs…

Steel lamps and side tables…

The dining room table was the biggest I’d ever fucking seen and there were 24 chairs…

And the room had space to spare.

The living room area was just as spacious… 4 couches and 6 chairs and a tree that was easily rocking 10,000 lights because it was 8 feet across at the base… and there was still room…

No wonder Sookie didn’t think twice about having so many people here at once. We wouldn’t have this much room if we took over Dirges. And we hadn’t even gotten to the bedrooms yet.

Had and Alc were going to be here a day early with the kids and the plane is stopping in St. Louis to get Rachael and Lexi… That way Had can tend to her interior design OCDs before everyone else arrived.

With Cujo to worry about, Sookie went straight to the door to the terrace and whistled softly as she opened the door. He bolted.

His feet tried to spin out on the slick floor before he got the traction he needed and Bubba and I followed her out. The snow was too much of a draw for me. Most of the places I’d lived considered snow to be as mythical as unicorns and dragons.


While Sookie chatted with Bubba and Cujo pissed everywhere, I grabbed our phones out of my pocket to check for messages.

I had one from Alc. “Scope bought & paid for. Card says: ‘You were a very good boy last night this year. From, the Clauses’.”

Fucking perfect. Alc could be a personal shopper.

Sookie’s phone had a text from Corbett though. ‘call home asap’

Oh shit. “Hon, your dad texted.”

I handed the phone to her and she looked confused and concerned as she dialed.

“Hey Daddy, what’s up?… Oh shit!… Yeah…. I can try… We’ll figure something out… Ok, love you too. Bye.”

“Do I want to know?”

“Our to-do list just got longer… We need to find a way to squeeze 4 more into the apartment.”

“Why? Who?”

“Keisha, Kenya and the kids. Hugh heard who Keisha was sitting with last night and flipped his shit. Disowned her. Kenya called him to talk some sense into him and got the same treatment.” Merry fucking Christmas.

“Supaul isn’t going to be torqued that his kids are in another state for Christmas?”

“He’s Buddhist. He doesn’t observe the holiday.”

“How the fuck are we going to get 4 more people into the apartment though? We’re at max capacity… your dad was bunking with Terry and Unc.” I was going to get pictures.

Sookie stared into the sky and I watched a couple snowflakes get caught in her eyebrows while she put things together in her head and a smile stretched across her face suddenly. “An abuse of power.”

I didn’t have the chance to ask what she meant before she ran inside.

  1. Oh yeah. I want candy! I love it as always. I am glad you are back to this. I’ll say the same thing when you go back to Bored To Death or The Dating Game. I love them all, so whatever you are doing I am happy. Well, it is great that they were able to go to NY on their own first and have some private time. Go Kevin – glad to see that Quinn is getting what for! Thank you so much!

  2. Love this whole family! Glad I could at least be a part of it vicariously.

    Off to read your new one. Thanks so much for the candy!

  3. Good see this chapter, I’ve missed this story. Can’t wait to see what Sookie has up her sleeve.

  4. Fantastic as always! I’m looking forward to what happens next and counting down until your next update :)))

  5. You just fulfilled my wildest hopes and brought me to NYC with the family. I’m as happy as they are. She must be putting some more beds in one of the master suites.

    I was wondering what they were getting for Kenya, while they got the scope for Kevin…

    How can Kenya & Keisha’s father be so blind after being friends with Alpha for so long?

  6. I am absolutely addicted in love with your work. I had to stifle my laughter a couple of times for fearing of waking the neighbors. I don’t think I can tell you enough how great this chapter is. Thank-you.

  7. It´s a bit odd reading Christmas when it´s 109F here in Madrid.But,hey,I´m not complaining! I loved your candy.
    I was missing this sooo much..

  8. it probably would be cheesy to say his but ima say it anyway…”i got a toothache from all that sweetness!!”… with it

  9. You are just the best, gotta give Kevin a hand for the imaginative way he gave Quinn a small payback, I guess there’s a raccoon on the run trying to escape an assault charge. The animals are funny and Eric and Sookie are happy love the story, just like all your others. Always waiting for more.

  10. I’m such a dork because I can’t think of a single thing to say that hasn’t been already said….ab fab story, great characters –human and animal –, wonderful workup, fuckawsome humor and the only downside to all this is it doesn’t get updated fast enough —but please take that as a compliment, not a complaint or a nag –you’re a genius and I just wish you’d share that with us a little faster 🙂 I see your stuff and like old Pavlov, it’s like ringing a bell and I start to salivate!

    Pat J.

  11. the raccoon in question went after Quinn like he owed it money.— choke time 🙂

    I so want to be a part of that family, Sookie preferably 🙂

    I wonder what the abuse of power will involve 🙂

  12. I’m so in love with your writing. Glad to see you back at this, and I can’twait to see what else you have in store for us.

  13. the chapter was great. Loved the tippy and cujo on the plane. Eric has no control over tippy. so funny.
    Can’t wait to read more. Thanks 🙂

  14. I love The crazines of this story and the quips they all throw at each other. Just like real life.
    It’s always facinating to read the next chaper.

  15. Believe it or not tippy makes the bird I used to have look like and angle. I’ve rescued 3 parrots from abandonment/abuse but the last one even I couldn’t deal with. She was a jen-day conure named keke (kaykay but spelled like the breeder chocobo from ffvii) and she hated men. She was so sweet to me or other girls with glasses but would attack men if let out or throw herself into the bars of the cage. And she would screatch so loud the neighbors(I lived in a trailer then while I was in college) would come check on me. She caused my dad to have to get stiches twice and scratched my husband’s(then fiance) face pretty horribly. I ended up giving her to somone who bread cockatoos. They say she still attacks males and also their dotsen. Oh and keke used to argue with me too. I would tell her goodnight and she would scream “no play” over and over. Oh yeah and she would chase my cat too.

    Yeah so at least tippy isn’t violent.

    Can’t wait to see what kind of crazy stuff Jason does over the hollidays!

  16. OMG everyone should own a tippy. i laughed through that whole chapter with those animals. i don’t care what you write i will read it. love it all. so glad you are back to writing my favorite family wish i could move in with them.

  17. Love this series and I am always anxious for the next update!
    Can’t wait to see what the ‘abuse of power’ is!

    And I’m really enjoying the sequel!

  19. I just finished Saints & Sinners last night. It took me a few days, that thing is a monster, but I loved every second of it. I have grown attached to your Eric, I can’t wait to watch him obsess over & care for Sookie & the parasite (baby) over the next months. Loving L&D so far.

  20. Please put more u I waited 2 months to start reading this story because I thought by then a knew chapter would be up soon. I need more chapters. I used to love ou for be such a wonderful writer now I hate you because I’m totally hooked with nothing to read. PPPLLLEEEAAASEEE MORE!!!

  21. all i can say is i can’t get enough of your writing. i love that you are back to my favorite couple. i love alc and eric and tippy and cujo. their dialogue is just too funny for words. course nothing tops sookie and eric. going to catch up on your other stories now. i like it when i have more than one chapter to read.

  22. I love your stuff ! Took 2 days to read S & S and laughed my way through it. Love those Stackhouses and crave anything to do with Eric. Can’t wait for updates to L & D and see what happens at Christmas !

  23. I’m going to join the begging for more of this story. I love everything else your doing (and beg for those too) but I need to see the wedding of these fine folks, or at least the drama of the Stackhouses in NY. Pretty please!

  24. I do miss this story. While have been enjoying the enlightening AIW. And I eagerly await BTD of course you can’t forget DS either. I really miss the human Eric and Sookie’s new adventures in LD. (sniffs)

  25. I love all of your stories. I can’t wait for more of this one. You are one of the best writers I have read on most of the fan fiction sites. Your stories and charcters seem to pull you in. They are funny and deep and I love them all. Please keep it comming.

  26. Love this story! I know you are vibing meanwhile..which is awesome as well…buttttttttttttttt I am hanging on your cliffie! Save me! LOLOL

  27. I have read S&S about 10 times and L&D atleast 10 times waiting. Meanwhile is great but this cliff hanger is killing me and I want to hear wedding bells. Please Please Please Please PLEASE !! You are a wonderful writer that has a truly captivated fan.

  28. Ack! I got all excited about there being a sequel to S&S, only to find out this only has 3 chapters & isn’t complete! *sobs*

    LOVED Quinn’s raccoon attack though! LOL I’d be buying Kevin more than just a scope. Haha!

  29. I love it. The abuse of power. I wonder if Had and Alc will have an anouncementof their own? Can’t wait Love the family charters.

  30. Wonderful. Loved every bit of it. You are one of only two fanfic authors that ALWAYS make me laugh out loud while I read. My husband is finally getting used to it. I hope you update this story soon.

  31. I do so dearly love you and this story/version of Eric and Sookie! I simply cannot wait til.the new chapter is out!

  32. I cannot impress strongly enough how impatient I am for updates on this story. I know you said you have to finish up a couple of other fics first but S&S is my absolute favourite AH story so I am jonesing something fierce.

  33. I read very few AH stories, and almost never the OOC ones, but you’ve created a completely addicting new world with your Eric and Sookie. I know you’ve got lots to do, so I’ll try to be patient while anxiously awaiting your next chapter!
    Jan (tigerjan110 on FFnet)

  34. So are you gonna finish this or is this done here? I really really hope u finish it. I love your stories. Im waiting on Meanwhile and i thought u were gonna take this one down. Please finish it.

  35. I know you have your plate full with all you are writing now, but still this continuation of Saints and Sinners is my favorite. Still love AIW as it is a more detailed telling of S and S. but your Eric and especially, your Sookie are incredible and those of us who love them are so anxious to hear about the baby, Christmas, Alcide, Had and the boys not to mention Corbett and Keisha!!! Please don’t forget this story. OK???

  36. I absolutely love this. I started reading Saint’s and Sinners last night at like 10:00, went to bed at 3:00, started reading again after school at 12:50 and just finished the series. That’s a lot of reading.

    I think this is one of my top favorite stories! I really hope you update soon! Keep up the great writing!

  37. I can’t tell you how much I love your writing. love love love …… I am so glad I started reading this story. It has made me fall in love with Eric and Sookie (Alcide too) all over again. I just finished a combined reading of Alcide and Saints. Awesome when read together. I hope there will be more to come of this story. Thanks! You are a great writer.

  38. I would love to see this continued but I know you have a few stories going on at the same time so I won’t push too hard for it. At least the way you keep lighting up my inbox it seems like you do. I still have to go read the last couple updates that came into my inbox because I was so into S&S and AIW. I didn’t want to confuse myself with one of your other great stories in the middle. I confuse way too easily! Lol! Thank you for sharing all these amazing works of art with us. I still owe DazedRose a huge thanks for pointing me in your direction.

  39. If it were Christmas I would ask Santa for more of this story. I am so greedy I want more of this, more of in the dark, more of everything.

  40. Hi Angela,
    this Sookie, Frannie and Tara have all been pregnant for more than a year now ! Please don’t make them hold it in much longer, think of those stretch marks and tired feet 😉 I’m getting a phantom back ache just thinking about it.
    How about just a teeny chapter with the wedding and Christmas to keep us going until you are ready to properly come back to this story ?
    Lots of love,

  41. Looking forward to the wedding and baby soon please. I know it’s a lot to ask since your updating all the “skips” too. But here’s hoping….

  42. Loved the chapter! esp what happened to Quinn… so hard NOT to feel bad for him 😉 *sarcasm* Will you be continuing this story? I love it 😀

  43. I can’t believe I’ve been reading fanfic for years and have just discovered this story. I haven’t slept in three days – I’m obsessed. Please tell me there’s more, it looks like this is the last chapter :(.

  44. I have read bored to death and mean while and all of the stories in that series. I loved them. I didn’t think I would like this series b/c it was ah. I was so wrong. I love ti. Please write more on this. It is so awesome.

  45. So like everyone else I’ve read everything on the site and I’m hungry for more. i hope you come back to this one soon though.

  46. I was so happy to realise that this was a continuation of S&S, but so disappointed that it hasn’t been updated for a year and a half. I was so looking forward to the NYC adventure. Hopefully it will be covered in AIW.

  47. I just finished Saints and Sinners on the site and discovered that you had an extra chapter of this one on your blog. PLEASE tell me you’re going to finish this story! I’ve invested so much time and energy in reading these stories over the past 2 weeks and it would be such a letdown to have it all end here. You’ve developed an interesting and highly entertaining cast of characters and I so want to see how they all end up!

  48. Please tell me what the abuse of power is! I keep re reading and thrying to figure it out… but it’s not coming to me and if you tell me it’s the same for you, I’ll cry. I’m way too emotionally invested in your work. Haha. Jx

  49. I love this story! I just read it again (3rd time) From begining to End. I hope when you are finished with the mulit verse, you come back to this story! But the Mulit verse is too awesome for you to stop working on right now! Anyway Loved this story just as much as I did the first time I read it!

  50. Just read this again and can’t wait for you to get back to this story. Tippy is so funny being a real spoiled brat. Looking forward to the whole family being together.

  51. ohhh holy shit EIM i love this story, forgot how much fun it was. I still love the Infinite series the most and then MV and then S&S…. damn girl i hope you get back to this story one day, once the MV is finished. my best Kristie

  52. Even though you rock the multiverse, would still love to at least see the wedding and baby one day. Even if it’s only done in a couple of chapters….ya know….like “the wedding” and then “Eight months later…” or something. Love this.

  53. Just read the whole of alcide in wonderland and this in under a week. i was hooked. sad to see it hasn’t been updated in ages- please do! Its brilliant !

  54. Please, please come back to our beloved Stackhouse/Northman/Herveaux families! Saints and Sinners, Life and Death and Alcide in Wonderland are some of my favorite, albeit unfinished, books I have EVER read. I seriously think you could use these for your own Fifty Shades of Grey. That said, do your readers a favors a BIG favor and update this (as well as Alcide in Wonderland – how did Alc and Had finally get together??)!!!!! Love your writing, all of it, but these are just plain special!!

  55. Will you continue thaïs story? Or Alcide in wonderland…??
    I really like your story (and I m not alone!!!!) but it would be better with an end… ;-))
    Hope you will update soon…

  56. read this one all over again , now for AIW, lol loved it, who did you use as Tippy muse, love that bird…. i wish you would finish this one up just through New York and maybe the birth of the baby and then leave it opened ended, but i know you said you wouldn’t, but i guess if i pester you enough then maybe you will give me a present. Kristie

  57. Absolutely adore your Eric and Sookie, along with the rest of the cast. Awesome story that has had me in stitches. Wondering if you’re going to continue you it. Hoping that you do.

  58. It really is a shame that this storyline was abandoned. I actually read it for the first time a few years ago on Fan Fiction (I don’t think S&S had reached its end point yet at the time). I recently decided I wanted to read it again and see how it turned out. I searched for a while, not remembering exactly how the title was worded and not finding it on FF.
    After finding it, I was enjoying it so much …I never would have guessed it would just come to an abrupt end as it does. This is truly a wonderful and unique take on these characters and a superb writing. I hope your S&S muse comes back to nest.

  59. Hello Teri , this is one of the admins of the site you are on. I understand your wanting of more but EIM passed away in 2013 so none of her stories will be completed that have not been done prior to her death. We all miss her and her writing, she was a unique person and friend. Thanks for reading and enjoying. KY

  60. I love rereading these stories. I am always sadden they could not be completed, but still appreciate all the work put into them. What a talent ESM was. She is missed by her many readers.
