Fan Fics Rejoice! Write your own True Blood episode

Entertainment Weekly Announcement: Write your own 'True Blood' episode!

As we all know, there’s no new True Blood episode this Labor Day weekend. The season finale is Sept. 13.

But should we do without True Blood this weekend? Hell, no! Today I’m inviting you to participate in my “Write Your Own True Blood Episode” competition.

Here’s the deal:

Starting now until Sunday at 9 a.m. EST, please use the Comments section below to write a quick summary of the True Blood episode you wish was airing this Sunday, Sept. 6.

All I’d like is a few sentences, sketching the outline of a plot. You can keep it simple: Describe an episode in a way similar to those “log lines” that your cable provider gives you. You know, like, “Bill asks the Vampire Queen for help; Sookie and Lafayette try to save Tara but encounter an angry Maryann” — that sort of thing. (If you want to refresh your memory about last week’s episode, here’s my Watching TV blog on it.)

The key is to describe plot and character elements that fit into the current storyline, that you know would please and amuse show creator Alan Ball, book author Charlaine Harris, and be fun for your fellow fans. It’s your chance to write the imaginary second-to-last episode of Season Two!

Sound like fun? Try it; you don’t have to write a long entry.

And on Sunday night, Sept. 6, at 9 p.m. EST, when True Blood would usually air a new episode, I’ll announce some winners in a few categories: The Best Written, The Funniest, The Craziest. (Maybe the Sexiest. But keep the language clean, you sly filthy fangsters.) No prizes except for the fun of being picked and enjoying everyone’s take on Bill, Sookie, Eric, Maryann, and all our favorites.

Ready? On your mark, get set, go! Start writing your own True Blood episode below!

  1. Well let's see...

    With Maryann set upon using Sookie as the new ingredient in her ritual to summon The God that Comes, fear fills the air of Bon Temps. Will Sookie actually prove to be the key that unlocks the success of the maenad's dark tribute? Best case Scenario; no, but Maryann still plans to sacrifice her anyway.

    Meanwhile, Bill and Eric reluctantly join forces, The Queen having approved of Eric's interest in Sookie more than the relationship she actually has with Bill.

    In spite of their recent fallout, Jessica and Hoight, along with Jason and Bellefleur, help Eric, Bill and the newly outed changeling Sam Merlotte thin Maryann's herd of mindless minions. In the end though, it is Eric who succeeds in Sookie's rescue; his will of sacrifice awakening bloodbound lust in Sookie drawing her closer to the flaxon haired vampire she once despised in a surreal and certain light, thickening the complexity of the love triangle between herself, Eric and her taken lover, Bill and forcing Bill's content towards his Sherrif and elder to grow wildly.

    Still, while one cataclysm of fate has come to an end, little do the newly liberated people of Bon Temps know that the calm after the storm is not to be taken on face value; their is a new and unexpected threat perpetuating in the obscurity of the maenad's difficult defeat, the death of a beloved character only providing further distraction to those who might be wiser otherwise.
