Day 29-Undead Crush: Eric Northman
To be clear the crush I have on Eric Northman is based more on the way that he is portrayed in the books rather then the way he is portrayed in the show. Don’t get me wrong show Eric a bad ass in his own way but there is more to Eric in the books that really gets me. For example Eric is the one that saves Sookie’s life in the first book, he’s just met her and he’s already saving her. Also missing from the third season is the fight at the gas station when Eric and Sookie save each other. Also missing is the romantic gesture of paveing Sookie’s driveway. I think that this illustrates what I like most about Eric, his realism and the fact that he has grown with the times. Unlike Bill Eric has do desire to turn Sookie into a kept woman, he accepts that she works at a bar and when she is not working this puts a strain on her financially. The gifts he gives Sookie reflect their practical nature, a new driveway, a nice coat, a call phone, among others. Eric loves the person that Sookie is, not the person he’d like her to be.
