The Gracious Plenty – Issue 134

Greetings Eric & Sookie Lovers!

In case you’re wondering why there wasn’t an issue last week…I was feeling SO fangovered…it took a few days to recover from the Season 6 finale. Sorry for the disappointment, but rest assured, I’m feeling MUCH better now!

Not to worry though…that means this will be a DOUBLE ISSUE! Full of everything you might have missed during the last 2 weeks!

1tumblr_lgp6q5NhE21qcjtu8o1_500You know what that means, right? Yep, we’ll need to work harder (pun is intended) to get you in the mood to read this issue properly! This week, we’re inspired by some good ole Eric and Sookie lovin’…since it’s obvious we’re going to have to wait longer for anything more between them (plus, I want to get that God awful scene with Alcide and Sookie out of my head).

tumblr_ltrjqphig21qj6v2tPlease let me know if you need more lube…

Pfff…

The Gracious Plenty – Issue 133

Greetings Eric & Sookie Lovers!

Well…it’s hard to believe there’s only ONE MORE episode left in True Blood Season 6. It’s a bittersweet time of year…after next Sunday – we will have to go through too many long agonizing months wondering what’s going to happen next season and there will be no new Eric and Sookie scenes for months and months and months…did I mention MONTHS? ARGH, I’m already not liking this AT ALL!

Don’t worry…we’ve got you covered! We’ll try to keep you entertained and informed!

This issue is may not be the biggest one…but still; the best way to describe it properly is by calling it a Gracious Plenty, not to mention…it’s STILL bigger than Bill’s. Let’s get you in the mood to read this issue properly!¬†

This week, we fondly remember SHOULDER PORN – thanks to a certain black tank top and a Swedish Viking God!

The Gracious Plenty – Issue 131

Greetings Eric & Sookie Lovers!

It’s been another busy week for us over at Eric & Sookie Lovers! We have LOTS of things we need to share. You know what that means, right? Yep, you’re going to need to be warmed up (in the only way we know how) and you’ll need to have a box of Kleenex handy too.

To call this The Gracious Plenty is NO exaggeration! We’re sure you won’t mind, since we like ‘em BIG around here!

To get you in the mood to read this issue properly – we’re inspired by Eric Northman’s various wigs throughout the seasons…

I don’t know…I’ll have to let my inner debate continue, because I think long hair is how a striking Viking should look.

The Gracious Plenty – Issue 130

Greetings Eric & Sookie Lovers!

WOW! This week’s episode was somethin’ else wasn’t it? We had a death – though I wouldn’t call it major – unless they are referring to the military. We had Eric escaping and wearing yet another uniform – therefore being a hero, and looking good doing it. And we had a few moments which made you think; WTF did I just watch?

Of course, this means you’re in for a Gracious Plenty…and you’ll need some extra ‘help’ in getting yourself in the mood to read it properly!

brainbleach*cracks knuckles* This might be especially hard (no pun intended) for those who are still in need of brain bleach from all of that Wookie (for lack of a better name) nookie, but I’ll try my best. The best way I think to do this – is to remind you of what REAL love-making is all about…
