A Thousand Years Chapter 1

So, I heard the song “A Thousand Years” by Christina Perri, on the radio on the way home a little ways back and this story just sort of took off from there. I’ve been sitting on it a while and have decided to put it out there finally. We’ll see what you think when review time comes.

This is canon up to the point where they’re on the porch in episode 12 of season 3 – after that it does its own thing. This is my very first “Supe” story, so be kind if possible, but more importantly – be honest!

Oh, and as of now at least, this story will be told from only Eric’s POV. I’ll indicate it if it changes.

As always, thanks to MissyDee and Balti K – love you ladies!

Disclaimer – I don’t own any of these characters, Charlaine Harris and Alan Ball do (even if we wish he didn’t sometimes).


When I heard her say “Wait, don’t go!” to that fucking bastard, Compton, I almost lost it. How in the fuck could she want him to stay after everything he’d put her through?! Let alone the shit she didn’t know about?


There was no fucking way I was going to let that asshole mislead this captivating creature anymore. After tonight she would know of his deception and treachery. Then she would finally see that I was her perfect mate, not Bill Fucking Compton.

I sent out a pulse causing her front door to fly open as I ascended the porch steps; a small part of my vast mind catalogued the damages to her property, knowing that I’d be sending a crew out to being repairs first thing tomorrow. The rest of my brain was focused on getting her to kick Compton to the curb. (I did so love some of the more recent human expressions; they were just so entertaining.)

“Did you tell her that you were originally sent by the queen of Louisiana to procure her because of what she might be?” I spoke with authority, yet in an understated tone; I didn’t want to appear to be gloating. I wanted her to hear the remorse I felt for her pain.

“What?” Sookie asked in a soft, incredulous tone.

“I did not know why she wanted you. As I grew to know you, I purposely kept you from her,” Bill whined at her, looking every bit the petulant, toddler vampire that he really was.

“Were you ever gonna tell me?” Sookie asked him quietly, the heartbreak she felt evident in her voice.

I could not stand the look in her eyes that accompanied her broken whisper so I turned away as I listened to their conversation. I walked back toward the stairs, though I had no intention of leaving here… ever… and leaned against the post as I waited to finish him off.

“I hoped to some day, I swear it.”

Yeah, sure you did, Billy-boy.

“What about letting two psychos beat her to within an inch of her life so you could feed her your blood the night you met? Think she’ll forgive you for that?” I could only hope that my face portrayed the murderous rage I felt as I put the final nail in his coffin.

How could anyone intentionally hurt someone so perfect? One thousand years on this earth and I’d yet to meet her equal. I had little doubt I could live ten thousand more and I never would. Sookie Stackhouse was truly one of a kind.

“Oh my god.” Sookie sounded positively shattered. My dead heart ached for her pain, but there was still more to be said.

“Sookeh…” the idiot was whining again in that fucking annoying accent. How had she not fucking staked him for butchering her name the way he did? I mean really, it rhymes with cookie. How fucking hard could it really be for him to say it correctly?

“Is it true?” She looked simultaneously ill and terrified; I could only imagine that she was afraid of his answer.

“Yes.” Bill struggled to produce this one word, knowing all hope of retaining his prize would forever be lost after this night.

I truly didn’t want to add to her pain, but she needed to know the rest. “He tried to silence me tonight so you’d never know,” I informed her as I picked cement from my hair. “He doesn’t want to protect you. He only wants to protect himself.”

Bill should have been worried about protecting himself from my progeny after tonight. While I was none too thrilled about the cement that was encrusting my body, Pam was beyond enraged. Not only was she covered in cement from saving my ass, but then Rueben had tried to kill her after receiving Bill’s faulty orders. Billy-boy had better consider moving out of the country before she got her hands on him.

“Get out of my house!” The hatred in her voice surprised even me. Who knew this kind and loving woman was capable of such volatile emotions?

I was almost ashamed to admit that her new-found strength had my dick stiffening at a rapid rate. Not the time for this shit, Northman. Be patient and don’t scare her off for fuck’s sake.

PLEASE…” Bill exclaimed as he was ripped from the house, only barely managing to hang onto the doorframe.

“Don’t ever come here. Don’t ever call me. Don’t ever talk to me. Ever! You manipulated me into falling in love with you!” Tears were streaming down her beautiful cheeks as she spit her words at him.

“It is who you are, Sookeh, not what you are, that I love. And will love always, until I meet the true death.” The giant man baby might have actually loved her. Huh. The anguish in his voice, along with the blood tears, seemed real enough.

“LOVE?! You don’t even get to use that word!” she screamed at him, tears still falling rapidly. “I rescind my invitation.”

With that Bill screamed “No!” as he was thrown off the porch and onto the ground by the magic that governed our species.

No way could I resist being just a little bit bigger dick to him, so I said nonchalantly, “I want my phone back.”

He gave me his own version of a murderous glare (which was barely more threatening than the look a fluffy kitten could manage) and rose to his feet. With one more longing glance at Sookie, he turned and sulked off towards his own house at a human pace.

“You too, get the fuck off my porch and outta my life!” Sookie spat at me with almost as much venom as she used with Compton. I was stunned at how much her apparent hatred of me hurt.

Why did I suddenly feel as if my whole world had been crushed?

“For the record, I would never have given you to Russell.” I tried to keep my voice calm and reasonable, hoping she’d hear the sincerity of my words.

“Go back to hell where you came from, you fucking dead piece of shit!” she commanded with even more hatred than she’d previously shown. I felt such a stab of pain at her words; I swear it was almost as if the force of it made my dead heart beat again.

I rushed towards her at vamp speed, coming to a stop in the doorway. Even if I was able to pass over the barrier right now, I wouldn’t. As much as I wished for this tiny human to be mine, the last thing she needed was another man forcing his will upon her.

“I am sorry to see you suffer like this, but I thought you had the right to know.” I hoped she would understand.

I prayed to my ancient gods that she could see how much I cared for her, but I could tell that what she needed right now was a little space and time to grieve. Besides, the tears falling from her eyes and the sheer look of defeat on her face was causing emotions in me that I was completely unfamiliar with and unable to process in front of her.

I backed away slowly, never breaking eye contact, until I reached the porch steps. I turned and fled into the woods at vamp speed; not only did she need her space, but apparently I did as well.

Maybe with just a little distance, I’d be able to figure out what in the fuck was happening to me!


“A Thousand Years” By Christina Perri

Heart beats fast
Colors and promises
How to be brave
How can I love when I’m afraid to fall
But watching you stand alone
All of my doubt suddenly goes away somehow

One step closer

I have died everyday waiting for you
Darling don’t be afraid I have loved you
For a thousand years
I’ll love you for a thousand more

Time stands still
Beauty in all she is
I will be brave
I will not let anything take away
What’s standing in front of me
Every breath
Every hour has come to this

One step closer

I have died everyday waiting for you
Darling don’t be afraid I have loved you
For a thousand years
I’ll love you for a thousand more

And all along I believed I would find you
Time has brought your heart to me
I have loved you for a thousand years
I’ll love you for a thousand more

One step closer
One step closer

I have died everyday waiting for you
Darling don’t be afraid I have loved you
For a thousand years
I’ll love you for a thousand more

And all along I believed I would find you
Time has brought your heart to me
I have loved you for a thousand years
I’ll love you for a thousand more


I should tell you that while this story is rated M – because we all know what a lemon-whore I really am – I’m not actually sure when the lemons will come into play. BTS is basically porn-with-plot, and Revelry is plot with a HUGE helping of citrus… not that there’s anything wrong with those things, of course. But I really wanted to try to do a story that was mostly plot.

Oh – and if you’re wondering where two of my previous stories went to – they have been deleted for now due to personal reasons. I’m not sure if I will end up reposting and/or finishing them; only time will tell.

Hopefully y’all will still love me *bats eyelashes and smiles pretty* Cuz I’z just adores the fuck outta y’all, LOL – Lafayette needed to be channeled there for a hot minute. I promise the lemons will come at some point, I just need to let my muses roll this out as they see fit!

And remember… it’s only canon to here. Personalities and situations will change some after this!

Love and hugs to all – thanks for taking this journey with me!

  1. I always have thought that the song went better for Eric/Sookie than for Twilight.

    Always thought it was stupid to blame Eric for Scumbill’s betrayals. (but then again, Alan Ball was taking direction from CH).

  2. from the get go there was always something not quite right about bill, in true blood as well as svm. eric is ALWAYS the better choice, but sookie being sookie never thought she deserved anything more than what she got.
