A/N:Thank you so, so much to my betas, S. Meads and VampLover1, who helped me figure out how to make this idea into a story. Ladies -- I never thought I could fall inlove with someone online, but I have:)

Oh, and an extra thank you to VampLover1 for working her magic with the song for this chapter.

*runs off to get laundry*


I hit reply on my Crackberry and tossed it on the couch. I had to send a message to my friend Amelia before I booked it out of the room.

I had jumped up with delight when I heard the dryer buzz just ten seconds ago. It was 8:55 pm, and I figured I could sprint through the kitchen, dig through my warm laundry to find my Team Vamp shirt, and still have time to slip it on and get all settled with my Gran's hideous, but strangely comfy quilt before Fiends came on.

And not a moment too soon.

I could already hear HBO's familiar sound clip of snowy static buzzing, signaling the start of the program. That meant I missed the recap of last week's episode. Damn. It's not like I hadn't seen it, though. There would have to be some sort of horrific doomsday-type scenario for that to ever happen. But I did enjoy watching Eric Northman every single chance I got, no matter how many times I may have seen the episode before.

I sighed as I settled into my seat. Could the man be any more perfect? He was so incredibly beautiful... it was almost painful. But it was a pleasure-filled pain. Chock full o' pleasure, and not the rated 'G' kind, if you know what I mean.

For anyone living under a rock for the past few years, Fiends was currently TV's hottest dramedy, mostly because of the unbelievably hot and sexy actor Eric Northman (or EN, short for Eric Nookie, as we liked to refer to him on our fan forum). On the show, he played the strong, yet sensitive, Leif Erikson, who was supportively helping his twin brother Bjorn with a little problem. You see, Bjorn had the misfortune of running into the tall, dark, and handsome vampire fiend, Bill and had been turned into a vampire against his will by him. So, Leif was helping his brother adjust to his new bloody lifestyle.

EN played both twin brothers brilliantly. The human Leif, a veritable pillaging Viking, was a towering 6'4", cocky bad-ass with wheat-colored, closely cropped hair and piercing blue eyes. He enjoyed all possible forms of debauchery and mayhem, and was used to always getting what he wanted without having to try too hard. Wherever he was, there was always fun, trouble, and plenty of women.

His adorkable brother was as opposite from him as scientifically possible for a twin to be. He had the same light coloring, of course, but his blond hair flowed long, with a too-perfectly-tragic, made-for-TV beauty, around his face and down to his shoulders, and his stunning blue eyes were covered with thick-rimmed glasses. Of course, now that he was a vampire, he didn't need to wear the glasses, seeing as he had beyond 20/20 vision, but he just couldn't give up that part of his self just yet.

This is part of what made the show so absolutely amazing. It was like a Greek tragedy on government-grade crack because really, if anyone out of those two would have made the better vampire, it would have so been Leif. The only possible thing that made Bjorn a better vampire was his beautiful, long hair -- it would be a shame to lose that full head of gorgeousness to mere mortality. But aside from that, Bjorn had the worst temperament for a vampire, and was epically forlorn about his new life. Leif, on the other hand, was also not a very happy camper. He wasn't thrilled about sharing his bachelor pad with his depressed vampire brother, but his fiercely loyal nature and very well-hidden heart of gold, could not allow him to do anything other than take care of him.

Fiends was as hilarious as it was sad. That's what won it the countless Emmys it had received from day one, and the rapidly growing female fan base was due, in no small part, to the double dose of deliciousness that is Eric Northman.

Like other popular TV shows, message board immediately popped up around the hot, new dramedy, Fiends, and soon there where forums that made you choose, 'Were you Team Vamp or Team Human?' As for me, well, I was 1000% Team Vamp. I mean, it's not like Leif was hard to look at, by any means, but I just melted for long hair and adorkable sweetness. Oh, and vampire Bill wasn't too bad to look at either. I may be a pretty small girl, but I was always willing to make room for a tasty vampwich.

I picked up my phone as the Fiends theme song started playing, checking for new messages one last time before the show started.

I couldn't resist the dorky smile that spread across my lips as the catchy song began:

So no one told you life was gonna be this way [four claps]
You're now undead, instead, a vamp who sleeps all day
It's like you're always wanting blood and sex
When the girls come home with us, you rub, you kiss, you suck on their necks

I'll be there for you
(When your fangs start to show)
I'll be there for you
(Since we're brothers, you know)
I'll be there for you
('Cause you're there for me too)

We're sexy, blond and gorgeous; women crave our hair
And now we're loved by teams; this change is so unfair
Your handsome Maker came and drained you dry
Now both our lives are tougher as we cope and try to get by

But, I'll be there for you
(When your fangs start to show)
I'll be there for you
(Since we're brothers, you know)
I'll be there for you
('Cause you're there for me too)

Yep. Sunday was definitely my favorite night of the week.

A/N: So what did you guys think? It's my first shot into the AH world, so please let me know what you think of the concept!
