While we like our favorite Viking large and in charge, he becomes that much more magnetic when poured into a well-fitted uniform with shiny buttons, and not a crease in sight. When speaking of Eric in a tightly, tailored uniform we, of course, can’t not mention kjwrit’s Men In Uniform Series that stars Eric in all manner of uniformed garb, but don’t worry, dear readers, our recommendations are not an exclusive All Human fest, Vampire Eric cleans up just as well, and not to be left behind, our ever-intrepid telepath, Sookie, can don a white uniform and a matching cap with the same enthralling ease while holding out the sponge for Eric’s favorite bath… At your service!
Eric and Sookie are reunited years after a devastating break-up. Eric is an active duty Marine and Sookie is still struggling to move on. Will they take a second chance at true love, or is there too much history between them? AH/AU, rated M, -COMPLETE-
For lovers of an Eric in uniform, this story could be the benchmark all others are measured against. The beginning is heartbreaking; highlighted by distance, war, and time, to tell the tale of two people coming of age. We follow a road filled with promises, happiness found, the desolation of separation and uncertainty, the fear of death, and ultimately vindication. It’s confronting; lessons learned in trust, forgiveness, and taking that step out onto the battlefield. Be warned: tissues necessary and once you start, impossible to put down.
700 years ago Prince Niall gave up his most precious possession- his mostly Human great granddaughter- to end the war between Vampires and Fairies. A/U E/S, rated M, -COMPLETE-
Vampires and faeries may live in the open among humans in the 14th century, however, mortal enemies they remain. On this premise an engaging story of war, love, betrayal, and eventually hope unfolds. Sookie lives uncomfortably among the Fae, despised by most because of her mixed blood. Her great-grandfather, Niall, loves and cherishes her, but makes the difficult decision to offer her in marriage to a vampire King to bring about peace. Sookie though resigned to her fate, her eyes; however, can’t help but to linger on the familiar Viking vampire who wears the uniform of commander, rather than to the crown she had been promised. The writer creates a rich world that immerses you in Sookie’s journey, marriage, and its ultimate outcome that is so profoundly captivating. Be prepared for some tragedy along the way; war does have its costs, after all, but you won’t regret reading a second of this vibrant tale.
“I love you,” Eric whispered. “You’ve set the bar impossibly high for everyone else. And I promise to be faithful to you. Only you. From this day forward till death do us part.” Little did he know that death was coming. AH/AU, E/S, rated M, -WIP-
From the writer who has always had a way with complex characters and relationships comes forth an Eric who is Sheriff, FBI agent, and many other layers in between; this brilliant story chronicles a relationship that appears doomed from the start. With the skill of an expert investigator, the story unravels in similar complexity, while it reverts from the present to ever-nearing flashbacks. Still in its early stages, this involves dark themes dealing with vengeance and what we sacrifice in order to acquire it. In spite of this, there is also a pleasant balance of bantering wit, remarkable dialogue and powerful drama. We also can’t fail to mention one of the best Eric mantras we’ve encountered: “Once a girl goes North, she always goes Forth.” and forth we shall go…
“Sookie is a nurse at a mental health facility, and her mundane life gets turned upside down when a unique patient arrives.” AU, E/S, rated M, -COMPLETE-
In a pre-revelation alternate universe, Sookie has chosen to pursue loftier goals than slinging beers at Merlotte’s. Under the guidance of one seemingly innocuous Octavia Fant, Sookie is a sweet and caring psychiatric nurse who uses her gift of telepathy knowingly to ensure better treatment for her patients, one of whom is an amnesiac Eric Northman whose presence makes anything but sense. With its resolutely romantic emphasis, Nightingale is a charming love story where Eric & Sookie’s relationship is allowed to ripen to full bloom, and for the most part, goes undisturbed by supernatural politics.
