True Blood 30 Days Challenge, Day 11 : Your favorite Sookie moment.
I love Sookie. Before I watched the show, I am ashamed to confess that I totally pictured her as a Bella. But she is so great. She manages to be sweet, good, non-judgemental, strong, fun, clever, tender, lovable, badass… Well, actually she’s one of the greatest female leads in a fiction that I’ve ever seen. And Anna Paquin is just the perfect actress for such a character. Anyway, I don’t know how to choose my favorite moment. I like it when she slaps people with her words. I like it when she’s strong for everybody. I like it when she collapses. I like it when she makes choices, good or not, and when she deals with the consequences. Maybe my favorite moment of all is when she decided to not be with Eric nor with Bill in the end of season 4. I mean, she was fantasizing about being with the two, but she made the most painful choice by ending things with both. Most of the times I think love triangles don’t work on long term because it becomes dull, you just don’t understand why someone would stay in such a toxic relationship. And Sookie is a clever, independant, strong woman. And she really loves Eric and Bill, and she knows any choice would be the worst for them three, and she decides to be the strong one, the one that is going to make them leave that bad place they’re all in. (Of course, I guess she’ll have to go back to them at some point in the future but still…).
