Summary: After an attack by the Fellowship forces Eric and Sookie to lead separate lives, how will they meet the day to day challenges facing all long distance relationships?

The Northmans Separate but No Split in Sight!

Once again, the Fellowship of the Sun has rocked the Supe and human worlds alike with their underhanded tactics to bring the world onto their stage. While it comes as no surprise that they’d target Louisiana’s favorite mixed-species couple, the nature of the attack has spurned a wave of outrage among the country’s vampire royalty and brought the war against non-human intolerance to a whole new level.

Frankly, I’m shocked that no one saw it coming. Someone had to have noticed the sudden interest in Sino-AIDS, the increased number of reported infections among the general population, especially with that nasty public outbreak of the news that it actually weakens vampires. Maybe the Northmans should have taken better precautions, though no one can say that the King of Louisiana didn’t keep his wife well protected. The paparazzi have certainly taken their fair share of snapshots of the Golden Girl and her entourage of bodyguards.

In this lies the reason the world was so surprised when the attack itself occurred. Sookie Northman, casually bumped into on the street by an everywoman housewife armed with a little syringe, and suddenly the picturesque world of the happy couple in a city finally regaining a sense of hope was shattered into tiny pieces. With too much risk involved with physically staying together, Louisiana’s beloved little telepath has packed her bags and will be staying on the move while taking care of business dealings around the country while her husband stays firmly anchored in New Orleans.

Not to fear, you crazy romantics, the couple hasn’t made a permanent split – they’re just biding their time while the vampire world shells out the big bucks to fund the medical research needed to rid them of the little Sino-AIDS problem. Who knows, perhaps by Christmas they’ll be back together and celebrating their first wedding anniversary in royal style!

(Note: Sino-AIDS is the term used in the books; in the show, the virus is called Hep D.)

Frank Sinatra "You're Getting to be a Habit with Me"

Every kiss, every hug
Seems to act just like a drug
You're getting to be a habit with me

Let me stay in your arms
I'm addicted to your charms
You're getting to be a habit with me

I used to think your love was something that I could take or leave alone
But now I couldn't do without my supply
I need you for my own

Oh, I can't break away
I must have you everyday
As regularly as coffee or tea
You've got me in your clutches and I can't get free
You're getting to be a habit with me
