Gone with the Vampires: Sookie Stackhouse and Gone with the Wind

You also might remember this ..

Gone with the Wind mentions in the Sookie books include :

**Note that all the major Sookie suitors carry Sookie Rhett style

Living Dead in Dallas
"This." He scooped me up in the classic Rhett Butler carrying stance, and though I was wearing slacks rather than a long red—negligee? gown?—Bill managed to make me feel like I was as beautiful, as unforgettable,as Scarlett O'Hara.

Club Dead
"Josh will keep you company, I'm sure." I didn't get to see what Josh looked like, because Eric was carrying me upstairs then. "Rhett and Scarlet," I said. "I don't understand," Eric told me. "You haven't seen Gone with the Wind!" I was horrified. But then, why should a vampire
Viking have seen that staple of the Southern mystique?

Definitely Dead
"Here," he ( Quinn) said, and scooped me up, until he was holding me just like Rhett carried Scarlett O'Hara. As his aura wrapped around me, the unpleasant go-away compulsion eased. I drew a deep breath of relief.The magic could no longer recognize me as human, at least not decisively.

From Dead to Worse
I slumped against the kitchen wall for a long moment, feeling dejected. It wasn't a good thing to just sit around, being depressed. Maybe I'd go out to the living room and pop a movie into the VCR, as entertainment for Eric. He'd gone through all myBuffy tapes, and I didn't have Angel. I wondered if he'd like Gone with the Wind. (For all I knew, he'd been around when they were filming it. On the other hand, he had amnesia. Anything should be new to him.)

I sagged where I stood, and Eric, moving faster than I could see, picked me up. It was a very Scarlett and Rhett moment, spoiled only by the fact that there were two other guys there, we were in a humdrum parking lot, and I was unhappy about the damage to my car. Plus not a little shocked. “How’d he get the jump on three strong guys like you-all?” I asked. I didn’t worry about Eric holding me. It made me feel tiny, not a feeling I got to enjoy all that often.

True Blood Star Alexander Skarsgård recently revealed that fansites for the series freak him out. The actor told Digital Spy that he tries to avoid blogs because the fans usually know more about the show than he does.

"I know less than all the fans on the blogs!" he said. "I try to stay away from the fan sites because it's not good for me to read that stuff - it'll just freak me out!"
