Sookieverseblog: An In-Depth Look At Eric & Niall’s RelationshipWARNING: For those who haven’t read Dead Reckoning yet, this is NOT the post for you! It contains spoilers which you may or may not want to know!

For those of you, who HAVE read Dead Reckoning, you probably remember one of the bombshells dropped in the book – the relationship between Eric & Niall was much MORE than we had previously known!

Our good friend, SVB from the Sookieverseblog has written an excellent blog post in regards to Eric and Niall’s relationship in the books – which is a MUST READ for you, Eric & Sookie Lovers!

In it, she explores these burning questions…

  • What did Eric tell Niall about Sookie?
  • When did Eric and Niall have Terry start watching Sookie?
  • How long did Eric know Sookie was a fairy?
  • How long did Eric know Sookie was related to Niall?
  • Why would Eric feed Niall information? What was in it for him?

This will be posted in two parts!

SVB’s blog post is called, “Mr. High Handed and the Fairy Prince”, which you can read, here!

This is what I said over at the Sookieverseblog:

I think Eric told Niall that Sookie needed protecting for a number of reasons besides the ones you mentioned above. I think it was also because of the trunk scene with Sookie and Bill. Eric knew how badly she was affected by it, since he found them in the trunk together. Eric had been raped by Appius when he was first turned into a vampire, so he knew how rape affects a person. Bill lives next door to Sookie and Eric couldn’t be there 100% of the time. I think we could add that to one of the reasons why Eric requested Niall send someone else to look after her. What do you think?

As for if this is comparable to Bill and QSA…I think there’s a difference between them. When it comes to Bill and QSA, QSA sent Bill to Bon Temps with the exact purpose of getting close to Sookie, and eventually turning Sookie over to QSA to use for her gain. With Eric and Niall…I think Eric didn’t know her until he met her in DUD. It was by chance that Sookie was investigating a murder, which led her to Fangtasia to find out who may have done it. Eric didn’t set out to meet her first, it was the other way around. Whereas, Bill was the one who showed up on Sookie’s doorstep (so to speak) first. I think neither Eric and Niall wanted to get too involved with Sookie’s life (well, maybe except for Eric who wanted to get in her pants. LOL), but they would be there in case she needed it. I don’t feel like there was any malicious intent with Eric and Niall, like there was with Bill and QSA.
