Bill may have been sent by the Queen to seduce Sookie but instead Bill is trapped by love

I think in the True Blood series Alan Ball makes it very clear in this scene that Bill is NO longer motivated by edicts, duty, lust or blood. He truly loves Sookie ....

I think it's important that this follows his memories of his human family, his loss of them as well as the memories of his "turning" and relationship to Lorena.

In the books, Bill tells Sookie he did NOT want to even pretend to have a relationship with a human woman because he thought that it degraded him. The moment Bill's motivation changed is NOT as clear in the books as it seems to be in the series.

But his love for Sookie has become a trap for him as he later says to her on bk 8 " I did what I had been told to do by my queen. In so doing, I fell into a trap I couldn’t escape. I still can’t.”

I think Tara and Lafayette discussion cinches the scene.

T-Do you think they are capable of loving a person?
L- Who knows what they are capable of ?

The Top 10 Male Nude Scenes of 2008- Stephen Moyer #3

Stephen Moyer from “True Blood”
True Blood gives us an eyeful every episode thanks to its genius pervy creator Alan Ball. While we never tire of ogling the buff sex machine Jason Stackhouse (Ryan Kwanten), there’s something about Stephen Moyer’s booty that makes us want to … blog. In our favorite scene, he crawls out of the ground, naked, covered in soil, and then gets some nookie from Sookie. What can we say, we like it dirty!

One of these things is just like the other - oink!

I think the butler for Maryann maybe a shapeshifter ( like Sam) and the pig is his non-human look...oink oink bk 2

A woman stepped out of the woods. With her was a razorback, a feral hog. Its tusks gleamed from the shadows. In her left hand she carried a sort of stick or wand, with a tuft of something on its end.
"Great," I whispered to myself. "Just great." The woman was as scary as the razorback. I was sure she wasn't a vampire, because I could feel the activity in her mind; but she was sure some supernatural being, so she didn't send a clear signal. I could snatch the tenor of her thoughts anyway. She was amused.
"What has happened to you?" he asked.
I glared at him, so incensed I could hardly speak. "Iam a message to you," I said, almost in a whisper.
"This woman in the woods made Bill's car stop, and maybe even made us argue, and then she came up to me with this hog."
"A pig ?" Eric could not have been more astonished if I'd said she had a canary up her nose.
"Oink, oink. Razorback. Wild pig. And she said she wanted to send you a message, and I turned in time to keep her from getting my face, but she got my back, and then she left."
"Your face. She would have gotten your face," Bill said. I saw his hands clenching by his thighs, and the back of him as he began pacing around the office. "Eric, her cuts are not so deep. What's wrong with her?"
"Sookie," Eric said gently, "what did this woman look like?"
His face was right by mine, his thick golden hair almost touching my face.
"She looked nuts, I'll tell you how she looked. And she called you Eric Northman."

'True Blood' vs. 'Twilight': Who's the Better Leading Lady?

Kristen Stewart, Anna PaquinIt's a good time to be a vampire fan. HBO's True Blood recently wrapped its first season with a suspenseful, gut-wrenching episode that left fans anxiously waiting for the show's return next summer. On the big screen, the teen vampire love story Twilight has been raking in so much cash that a sequel is already in the works. On the surface these stories appear to have a lot in common, but fans know that they present two very different takes on the vampire mythos.

Both True Blood and Twilight revolve around young girls in small towns who find themselves falling for creatures of the night. However, these two girls couldn't possibly be more different. Who is the better character, and who is the heroine young girls should be idolizing?
To figure out which leading lady is worthy of being a pop culture icon, let's look at some facts.

She Fell for Her Vampire Boyfriend After:

True Blood's Sookie Stackhouse: She saved him from a couple of evil vampire haters.

Twilight's Bella Swan: He saved her from being crushed by an out of control van.

How's Her Love Life?

Sookie: Bill, her vampire boyfriend, may be hundreds of years old, but Sookie treats him like an equal. She refuses to be afraid of him or his lifestyle.

Bella: Edward, her vampire boyfriend, may be hundreds of years old, but that doesn't stop Bella from going on and on about how gorgeous he is. She's even been known to swoon when he kisses her! This might be perfectly acceptable if Edward treated Bella decently, but he spends the entire book either chuckling condescendingly at every comment she makes, or treating her like crap so she won't fall for his dangerous charisma.

Special Ability?

Sookie: She can read minds.

Bella: She falls down a lot.

Is She Close With Her Family?

Sookie: Her grandmother is the most important person in her life, though she doesn't always get along with her sex-crazed brother, Jason.

Bella: Her dad is the most important person in her life, and she also keeps in close contact with her mother.

Best Qualities?

Sookie: She's fiercely independent and capable of standing up for herself.

Bella: She's intelligent and down-to-earth.

Worst Qualities?

Sookie: A tendency to run into dangerous situations without thinking.

Bella: A tendency to run into dangerous situations without thinking; low self-esteem; an inability to walk without falling; a constant need to be rescued; a habit of forgetting her friends exist when she has boy trouble; neither independent or able to stand up for herself.

If Her Man Left Her, She Would:

Sookie: Stress over it for a while, then make out with the hot bartender.

Bella: Mope for months, then fling herself off a cliff.

Will She Have Sex Before Marriage?

Sookie: Yes, she indulges in some wild nights with Bill that leave her with fang marks.

Bella: No, Edward refuses to have sex with her for fear of hurting her. Bella wants him to turn her into a vampire to solve this problem, because living isn't particularly important to her.

Can She Protect Herself?

Sookie: She can if she has to, but the men in her life are very protective of her.

Bella: In the movie, she actually maces someone and knees a guy in the crotch. In the book, she's a useless damsel who always waits for Edward to save her. He also constantly reminds her that she's incapable of taking care of herself, squashing her already miniscule amount of self-esteem.

Should Young Girls Idolize Her?

Sookie: Yes. Sookie is strong, independent, always willing to speak her mind, and able to balance friends, family, work and romance.

Bella: No. Bella is weak, klutzy, inconsiderate, whiny, and ditches her friends the instant she has man trouble. She's the last person a young girl should look up to.

True Blood Hotties Top List of TV's Best Nude Scenes

By Lewis Wallace December 03, 2008

Paquin_big While True Blood's vampires bare their fangs, the HBO series' female stars are baring something else entirely.

True Blood boasts two of the top 10 nude television scenes of the year, according to a celebrity skin website.

Lizzy Caplan, who plays blood druggie Amy Burley in the sex- and corpuscle-drenched series, tops the list, which was compiled by nudie site Anna Paquin (pictured), who portrays mind-reading waitress Sookie Stackhouse, comes in No. 3.

"All the nudity on TV this year finally made good on the term 'boob tube,'" said website rep Mr. Skin in a press release crowning 2008's hottest nude scenes.

True Blood, based on The Southern Vampire Mysteries books by Charlaine Harris, takes place in a near-future Louisiana in which vampires walk among the living, thanks to synthetic blood and a "vampire rights" movement.

Before her True Blood portrayal of a hippie with a taste for mind-altering vampire blood, Caplan played Marlena in Matt Reeves' creepy creature feature Cloverfield and previously held down lesser roles in Smallville and Freaks and Geeks.

All the winners on's list come from cable television shows like True Blood, Weeds and Californication, which thrive in a world where FCC restrictions don't apply (and clothes and profanity fly). See the complete list of winners -- and sound off on the picks -- after the jump.

1. Lizzy Caplan: True Blood (HBO)
2. Mary Louise Parker: Weeds (Showtime)
3. Anna Paquin: True Blood (HBO)
4. Arlene Tur: Crash (Starz)
5. Jenaveve Jolie: Entourage (HBO)
6. Caprice Benedetti: Brotherhood (Showtime)
7. Hayley Marie Norman: Crash (Starz)
8. Cerina Vincent: Manchild (Showtime)
9. Alicia Leigh Willis, Katherine Moennig: The L Word (Showtime)
10. Carla Gallo: Californication (Showtime)

Sookie's favorite Gin and Tonic recipe

Ep 4 Fangtasia

Bill says "How's your drink?"
Sookie : "A gin and tonic's pretty much
a gin and tonic no matter where you drink it."
Bil : :"I know exactly what you mean."

You need:

1. Some Collin/Highball glasses or just tall glasses for water
2. some lemons [well washed]
3. ice-cubes [a lot :-)]
4. Gin [I prefer Bombay Sapphire but if you want strong taste you can try Tangueray]
4. Some Tonic cans [I prefer Tuborg]

and now the recipe [with its secrets...]
1. Cut a lemon slice and squeeze it into the glass, to get out all its oil and juice and after this put it at the bottom of the glass
2. Full with ice cubes till the edges of the glass [i repeat: till the edges!]
3. Squeeze a half lemon above of the ice cubes. Wait for 30 secs.
4. Fill the 1/3 of the glass with Gin [how much strong do you want your cocktail?]
5. Fill the rest of glass with Tonic
6. Gently stir the mixture with the knife you have cut the lemon

Now You Too Can Be A Self-Loathing, Vampire-Loving Waitress

By Meredith Woerner, 7:00 AM on Wed Dec 3 2008, 632 views

Too late for Halloween but just in time for naughty cosplay, HBO is selling the slutty uniform of choice for Merlotte's servers. Get your perky-breasted see-through ensembles now, before you're picked off one by one by local murderers, vamps or the self-respect police because you know that thing really is see through. In other vampy news, there's a veritable nest of vampire goodies over at True Blood headquarters, including DVD goodies, behind the scenes videos, and details on just how long Anna Paquin plans to be a vampire lover.

HBO is selling all sorts of Vampy wares, from Merlottes' mugs to Fangtasia t-shirts.

But the best news is, come May HBO is releasing the entire DVD box set of the first season of True Blood for $60. So until then we'll have to amuse ourselves by watching behind-the-scenes videos, and dressing up in the tiny Merlotte's waitress uniform while reenacting the infamous Rattree fight.

Until the the video of said reenactment is up, you'll have to hang tight and watch this behind the scenes make up video, where the artist explains how she gives Bill that just rolled out of the grave look.

And if you're fearful that the next season (which starts filming in January) may be the last, take heed, an old interview with the National Post where Sookie Stackhouse herself (Ana Paquin) says she's signed on for seven years of True Blood madness, so barring HBO's decision to cancel the series, we could be watching True Blood well into the year 2115.** i do not write them i only post them !

Sookie Stackhouse books in France

Book 2 ( of course my favorite ;) ) Bk6 below and book three with description.

Présentation de l'éditeur
Ce qu'il v a de pénible avec les vampires, c'est qu'ils sont cachottiers et ne tiennent pas en place. Bill ne fait pas exception à la règle. Il a fini par m'avouer que la mystérieuse reine de Louisiane lui avait confié une mission. Avant de disparaître, il m'a mise en garde. Des événements terrifiants allaient se produire. Moi, Sookie, je n'allais pas rester les bras ballants. Je suis donc partie enquêter dans le Mississippi, accompagnée d'un coéquipier inattendu, un loup-garou. Il n'empêche que j'avais bien besoin de ses talents particuliers car, entre les ménades et les lycanthropes, cette affaire s'annonçait comme l'une des plus corsées que j'aie eu à élucider...
