Author has written 4 stories for True Blood, and Sookie Stackhouse/Southern Vampire Mysteries.

Hi! I'm a 30 something, mother of 2, just trying to get back my creative mojo after being "mom" for so long. I thought I'd start with fanfic!

I now have a wordpress site. If you want to look it up, it's just my user name victoryintrouble dot wordpress dot com. I will occasionally post stories there that are too smutty for here only be posting new stories on Wordpress. So, if that's something you like, please follow me on wordpress! Also Northman's Nanny has pretty pictures to accompany the text! I have many stories over on WP, so please come on over and check them out. There are one-shots, a multi-chapter fic, some vampire short stories and some AH. Lots to read!


The title, We Wear the Mask, is loosely based on a poem by Paul Laurence Dunbar, who is in no way talking about vampires and telepaths when he writes:

We wear the mask that grins and lies,
It hides our cheeks and shades our eyes,--
This debt we pay to human guile;
With torn and bleeding hearts we smile,
And mouth with myriad subtleties.

Why should the world be overwise,
In counting all our tears and sighs?
Nay, let them only see us, while
We wear the mask.

We smile, but, O great Christ, our cries
To thee from tortured souls arise.
We sing, but oh the clay is vile
Beneath our feet, and long the mile;
But let the world dream otherwise,
We wear the mask!

The song Make Me Yours by Bettye Swann was an inspiration to the story

I never had a love to call my own
I was about to give up
And then you came along

Just to have your tender kiss
Thrills me for days and days
I don't care what nobody says
I want you for always

Now that I found you
I want to stay around
So make me yours
Make me yours

You already captured
My heart and my soul
Now I want you
To take full control, yeah

I need the love
That only you can give
If I can't have it
I don't want to live, no

I never had a love so sweet
I never thought I'd be
Lucky enough to meet

A guy with all your charms
To hold me with loving arms
Make me feel secure and warm
Caused my heart to run

Now that I found you
I wanna stay around
So make me yours
Make me yours

Ooh, now that I found you
I wanna stay around
So make me yours
Make me yours

Take me, baby
If you want me to be
So whatever you need
You can always find in me

Yeah, love me, baby
And keep me by your side
Wherever you go
I'll go and be satisfied

All of my friends
Said, girl, don't
But I know what I need
And I know what I want

I want to be yours
You're the only one
And I will give to you
Happiness in return

Because what you need
Baby, I've got it
What you've got
I'm just crazy about it

If you're looking for a love
That you'll never get tired of
Make me yours, make me yours

Baby, make me yours
Not just for a little while, baby
But forever, my darling
Make me yours
I wanna be yours

I also listened to Right Place, Right Time by Olly Murs but I won't post the lyrics.

Eric's house was inspired by a real house in Shreveport on Cross Lake. Here is the listing:

The bed he owns is the Nirvana Bed by Swedish company, LampLagret but I can't find a good link. Also, the lemon trees are real. They are very pretty. http://www.citrusvariety.ucr.edu/citrus/variegatedpink.html

Beholden by ElfChef reviews
It's hard being a telepathic barmaid but Sookie Stackhouse can't complain. She has a nice life in her small town. It all goes up in smoke when a fairy blackmails her onto marrying a vampire.

The Good, The Bad and The Ugly by ElfChef reviews
Vampire sheriff Eric Northman stumbled upon what he feels is nothing but a gold mine, a sexy one. But did he find her? or did she want to be found for reasons he can't imagine. Will be a Ménage à trois love story. E,S & G. All in EPOV. Begins with the 2nd book. Events from the books are used, like Rhodes e.t.c but I put my own spin to them Rated M. Explicit content! Very lemony!
