Story Recs: You Don’t Choose Your Family

banread-6

 

Orphaned and ‘unseen’ by her Faery relatives, Sookie isn’t one with a large family, and thankfully, there are the loveable Gran and idiotic Jason to fill some of that void. Though, in some cases, Sookie’s biological family isn’t all they promise to be, and the one she carves for herself through long and loyal friends or in the midst of a variety of Supernaturals, one of whom is, of course, always Eric, may mean just as much, if not more, than the one she was born into. So, during those moments when you’ve had quite enough of your own family, how about living vicariously through Sookie? We can’t help but mention EricIzMine’s “Mutli-verse”, who, without a doubt, lifted the ensemble casts of SVM into a warm bath of family with some of the most impressively written children in the fandom! If all you have time for is a quick dip in and out, may we suggest hisviks’ often hilarious “Thanksgiving Fixin’s” to put you just in the right mood in between all those family feuds and, just remember, they’ll all be gone by morning, but these stories won’t! Have a Happy Thanksgiving from us all here at the Directory!

Story Recs: Crazy Science

banread-6

 

We love it when the SVM/TB realm goes a little Frankenstein. Toss in a lab coat or two, some bubbling green goo, and watch all the excitement happen! In all seriousness though, our fandom knows of many great stories that play with the notions and capabilities of science in a way that makes ‘magick’ look decidedly lame and offers us a rather unique set of Erics and Sookies. We can’t help but to give a nod to previously-reviewed stories such as idream3223’s “Faux” and the uber-intelligent science buff that is Sookie in elfchef’s “Twisted & Turned.”*

Story Recs: Hollywood

New writer alert! Help us welcome our newest member of the Directory, Ladytarara.

 

It isn’t hard to imagine our enigmatic duo doing exceptionally well in the glitz and glamour of Hollywood, be it in the past or now, the Viking has a bit of a fan club, after all. Kjwrit’s much loved “All In” (if you haven’t read it by some miracle, this is clearly your sign to do so now) prompted us to seek out more recommendations in and around tinsel town. It’s safe to say we found quite a bounty and guess what, it’s not all all-human after all, but Happily Ever Afters certainly are abound.

Story Recs: Dr. Who? Dr. Ludwig, Of Course!

banread-6

The little doctor, species still unknown, might be a tad abrasive and not much of a Fan of the Fang beyond their useful blood, but there’s no denying she’s an interesting character whenever she ‘pops’ into some of our favorite fanfics, her unapologetic demeanor often putting Pam to shame. While others might simply tolerate her for her healing skills, we readers can’t help but laugh with delight at her appearance and in doing so, she provides for an interesting insert, whether it be as Sookie’s mentor, a money greedy therapist, or the defining factor that brings together Eric and Sookie. Enjoy and be sure to let us know about your favorites with a special place for the one and only doctor!

Story Recs: Genuinely Funny

banread-6

 

There’s nothing quite like a story that has you laughing every step of the way, no matter the cost to your delicate jawline. Whether it’s parody, bordering on the absurd, or intelligently witty, we at the Directory can’t help but cheer at the sight. While some make it look almost effortless, it is by no means easy. As far as we’re concerned, the two undisputed Queens of Comedy in our little fandom are MERIDIAN and KJWRIT. Their unique brands of humor is peppered throughout each and every tale, making it impossible for us to choose just the one, or two, or even three of their rollicking stories. Take our word for it, all their stories are full of comedy gold, however, that doesn’t mean there aren’t more genuinely amusing stories out there for your reading pleasure! Enjoy what we enjoy, and feel free to chime in using the comment section on the stories that left you laughing out loud.

Mistaken Identity by plaguemysoul

 

Best friends Sookie and Tara do something they never would have ordinarily done, in going to vampire bar Fangtasia. But what happens when Sookie is mistaken for a fangbanger by none other than vampire Eric Northman himself, man-gropes him, and meanwhile captures the grumpy and troubled vampires interest? Mostly silliness, craziness and fun. Smutty/Humour. E/S, OOC, rated M, -WIP-

Story Recs: Season Seven – Rewriting the Wrongs

 

Show? What show… oh yeah, that show.

On the tail end of summer rolling slowly into fall, the annual tradition of fixing the fuckery of an entire season we just witnessed on those tiny screens would usually start right about now. Alas, we are without our love/hate relationship with a certain show with no eighth season that poorly fed idle our hopes. While some are still a little raw from book endings and subsequent deteriorating seasons as we went along, there were always bright spots, beloved quotes, and always plenty of inspiration on how it should be done. This week we’ll be focusing on the brave souls who dared rewrite the material as it came or appeared to come and Continue reading

Story Recs: Fantastic Felines

An Eric who purrs... how can you go wrong?

Fantastic Felines: An Eric who purrs… how ever can you go wrong?

 

An agile grace, a hint of fang, a contented purr, and a touch of fur… Wait, what fur? Yes, we’re talking felines, not vampires… well, there are some vamps still available below because while we like petting the kitties and will playfully endure the bites, we haven’t descended into full on bestiality here at the Directory. However, we do have a selection of some awesome stories that feature some magnificent cats and pussies (and, no; we’re not talking the babe ‘magnet’ violet-eyed, genie-trousers-wearing pansy that’s not even good enough to be a rug) as an integral part of the tale. Claws will come out, tummies will be rubbed, and pussies will be stroked while loving licks are returned and… Oh yeah, there are some cats too!

On a Hot Tin Roof by Jillian K

 

Sookie loves Eric. He is beautiful, blond, and used to getting his way. He is also her cat-that is until Amelia decides to experiment. Now Sookie has to contend with a tall and sexy human man who insists on sleeping on her bed and claiming her as his. AU, rated T,-COMPLETE-

 

”On a Hot Tin Roof” gives us a delightfully funny insight into a world where Eric is a very possessive cat who will protect what is his no matter what it takes. Throw in a scrawny stray cat (who else but Bill), a touch of Alcide, Continue reading
