New Dead Briefs Chapter

Last Sunday’s episode had quite an effect on me, dear reader. Not only it gave me hope for an Eric/Sookie endgame (call me delusional, I don’t care. Let me live in my delusional world!) but it got my Muse working in overload! Whenever I had time off (which wasn’t a lot, unfortunately. Work has been crazy and we lost not one, but two key players at the hotel so I’ve been working overtime a lot) I wrote. Dead Briefs first and I’ve already started on a new chapter of Your Presence Still Lingers Here. Oh and Do Not Disturb has been bugging me non-stop! So much that I’m having dream about it! ;)

So without further ado, here’s the new Dead Briefs chapter! Don’t forget to leave a comment!

Next Chapter

Tuesday Bloody Tuesday

I wanted to publish this on Monday, but a glitch from my dear old computer got in the way. But hey, it’s almost 20 minutes past Monday, so it’s not so bad.

So what did you think of Sunday’s episode? True Suck didn’t suck that much, right? I can’t tell you how happy I was for every Eric/Sookie interactions. The chemistry between them, the love Sookie clearly has for Eric… I just hope it wasn’t the Swan Song for them. Somebody on TVLine commented about thinking the whole ‘Sookie and Bill are endgame’ was all smoke and mirror and that the writers are going to throw us a curveball and end the serie with a Sookie/Eric HEA. Call me delusional, but I’m hoping for this theory to be true.

Anyway, enough with that. I have a new chapter of YPSLH for y’all! As usual don’t forget to leave me a comment ;)

Lots of luv,

Blame Gaga

Dear readers,

I’m a bad writer, a very very bad writer… I have no excuse for the lateness of this post. Well I have one: LADY GAGA!

Gaga

Instead of writing the next chapter of Dead Briefs I went with my brother to an outdoor Lady Gaga concert. As you can see we were pretty close to the stage, who am I kidding we were front row! You see my hometown held a huge summer music fest, aptly named Festival d’Été de Québec (Quebec City Summer Festival). The biggest concerts of this festival are held on the Plains of Abraham (history note: The Plains of Abraham or the Battlefields was the site of the 1759 Battle of the Plains of Abraham where the British seriously kicked the French’s butts resulting in New France becoming a British Colony. Now the Battlefields is one huge park). In the last couple of years we had big names like Bruno Mars, Metallica, Elton John, Sting, Black Eyed Peas, Stevie Wonders, KISS, Santana, Bon Jovi and Aerosmith performing on the main stage. And this year we had LADY FREAKING GAGA!

So my brother and I arrived at the gates at noon (the gates didn’t opened till 6PM). After that it was the run of our life to get to the stage for the best spot. Luckily my brother’s long legs were faster than mine and we got those amazing seats. Well not seats, since there was no seats, but you know what I mean. Anyway it was THE SHOW OF MY LIFE! When she started singing Paparazzi I went completely crazy, if you know what I mean.

But I did finish this new chapter of Dead Briefs. Hope you will enjoy it. I can’t believe I haven’t posted any DB since Father’s Day…

So as usual your feedback are more than appreciated.

Luv,

Lara

PS. I will try to post a new YPSLH chapter soon, I mean after the fuckery that is this season I really need it

Next Chapter

What drugs are they taking?

Really, what drugs are the True Blood writers taking? It must be something pretty strong for them not to bother listening to the fans… I just watch the 2nd episode today, thanks to my brother-in-law (the only good B-I-L there is) who downloaded it for me since I  had cancelled my HBO after the end of GOT. And I’m glad I’m not paying for it… Jesus, they’re trying so hard to shove Bill down our throat I’m actually gagging! At least we got some Viking this time… But then the scene with Jason, while pretty hot, seemed quite… I don’t know. It felt as if they were whoring him. I mean, it’s like they were telling us fans ‘you’ve been bugging us non-stop about Eric, so we’re giving you some hot sex scene with him’. And then BOOM, they’re dropping the bomb: Eric is Hep V infected! I mean, really?!

One thing that’s been bugging me about this episode, you’ll tell me what you think… According to the timeline, between the end of season 4 and 6 it’s been what 2 or 3 weeks, right? So it’s been approximately 6 moths and a half since Sookie had Bill and Eric’s blood. And yet apparently all of it is out of her system, but Jason still has Eric’s blood in his? Seriously?

Anyway, I’m so pissed right now that I needed some cheering up. And cheering up I found in this facebook group called The On-Going Detestation of Bill Fucking Compton. But I also wrote, although it’s not DB or YPSLH. It’s a sneak peek at my new fic, Do Not Disturb. I’ll first finish YPSLH then I’ll start working on it.

As I said in my last post, Do Not Disturb is partially inspired by my real life. It’s an AH/AU, my first AH. It is set in the hospitality industry, something I’m really familiar with since I’ve been working as a Front Desk Agent for the nearly last 10 years. Here’s a description:

Life as been good for Sookie Stackhouse. Cherished daughter of the Bon Temps Sheriff and the local High School Principal, she left her small town to achieved her dreams. After spending years working around the world in high class hotels, she is back to her home state, ready for the challenge that is her new job as Front Desk Manager of Valhalla Shreveport.

Life as also been good for Eric Northman. Heir to the Northman hotel empire, he spent his life jet-setting around the world, enjoying fine wine and champagne, sport cars and women. But when his father gives him an ultimatum about his future, Eric finds himself the new General Manager of one of their hotel. Used to Monaco, New York, L.A. and London, he will have to settle in Shreveport, Northern Louisiana.

Sookie’s past work experiences in this fic really are my own. Right after graduation from College I moved 2100 miles away from home to work for Fairmont at a resort in the Canadian Rockies.

And now the end is near…

And so True Blood has face the final curtain. My friends, I’ll say it clear, I’ll state my case, of which I am certain: Season 7 doesn’t look very promising. I mean, really? Everything points toward a Sookie-Bill endgame, which in my opinion is a big FU to the fans. I mean, do the writers realize that for 6 seasons they made him unreedemable? And now they expect us to believe that he’s Sookie’s HEA? The good citizens of Bon Temps got it wrong. Sookie isn’t the one to blame for all the bad things happening, Bill is. Ever since he walked into Merlotte’s in the pilot. I mean, he’s responsible for all the shitty things that happened in season 6! He was the one who came up with the idea of blowing up the Tru Blood factories!

Do the writers even listen to the fans? I mean, apart from a little clique of die hard Bill fans trolling the web (they’re the reason why I stopped reading anything on Entertainment Weekly who seem extremely pro-Bill) most of the comments I’ve read about the Season Premiere was about the lack of Eric and about the off-screen death of a character (I won’t spoil it for those who haven’t watched it yet). After watching it I went all Khaleesie and was screaming ‘Where’s my Viking’!

Anyway, I may be dilussional, but I hope the serie finish with the whole 7 seasons being a vision Sookie has the night Bill came into Merlotte’s in the pilot. You know, like in the TV show Dallas with the good morning shower scene with Pam and Bobby when the whole past season was a dream? Yeah, I wish the show would end like that, with Sookie deciding to stay away from Bill. I know, I know, a girl can dream, right?

So apart from being pissed at Alan Ball, Brian Buckner and the writers, I’ve been writing. I’m still working on the next chapter of Dead Briefs T2, so don’t worry I’ll have it up soon. But the biggest news is that a new story came to me. I remember back in college that my writing workshop teacher once said that a writer must write about what he or she is familiar with. And I thought… I’ve been working in the hospitality industry for nearly 10 years now, it’s something I’m extremely familiar with. So I came up with this story, an All Human story, my first AH, that will take place in the hospitality industry. It will be call Do Not Disturb and I’m already working on a poster/banner for it. But I’m no expert, so don’t get your hopes up. But before I start working on DND I will finish Your Presence Still Lingers Here.

Which brings me to the reason of this post – apart from bitching about the premiere. I have a new chapter of YPSLH ready! So read, review and comment!

Luv,

Lara Kingsley

Happy Father’s Day + Dead Briefs Update

I hope you’re all having a marvelous Father’s Day. I’m taking a minute while my own dad is taking a well deserved nap – yeah, no day off for my daddy! – to post a brand new chapter of Dead Briefs Tome 2.

I’ve been a very bad author… I should have had this new chapter up like a week ago, but some stuff came up. First there was my town local public libraries Mega Sale. Every years all the public libraries of my hometown of Quebec City do a Mega Sale of books. And what’s so mega about it? Well they sell the book by the kilos which for a bookworm like me is Heaven! I had planned on going there with my mother and baby brother (I have to stop calling him that, he’s 17 afterall!) and only buying books for them. You see even though I’m French Canadian, I barely read anything in French. Unless it was written by a French author, I don’t read it. I hate translated books. But I was quite surprised to find several tables lined up with English books. So we ended up buying for nearly $60.00 worth of books at $3.00 per kilo. Unfortunately they didn’t have copies of She-Who-Shall-Not-Be-Named two last books – you know the one where she sentenced a certain Viking to 200 years of sex slavery and the one where she tells us about the so-call HEA of our beloved characters? I would have loved to find these two books, they would have made great kindling for our backyard fireplace.

The other thing was also related to my brother (see, I didn’t call him baby bro! I’m getting better ;)  ). Him and our cousin Elizabeth (who’s 12 days younger than him) are seniors in High School and last week was their Graduation day. See how great they look in their caps and gowns:

My cousin Elizabeth, me and my brother Marc-André

So I was busy with reading and cheering on my sibling and my cousin. But I finally finished chapter 12 of Dead Briefs Tome 2! And in honor of Father’s Day there is some cute Hunter/Eric interaction ;)

Luv,
