I'm ashamed to say that I just found out about FanFiction three weeks ago. I was buying a gift card for a friend at Books-A-Million, and a friendly employee was helping me look for a title I was interested in purchasing on my own. As we passed the 3 rows of "Fifty Shades of Grey" novels, he started chatting with me about the alleged Stephanie Meyer/E.L. James controversy that erupted from FanFiction. Apparently The Fifty Shades trilogy is a fanfic of "Twilight".
I can only assume most of you already know about FanFiction, but for the small number of you like myself that didn't know, it is a website comprised of stories told based on published works or popular TV shows and movies. One can take their favorite book like Harry Potter, then restructure and recreate a fan fiction of their own. For example "Harry Potter's Wild Night in Las Vegas". Or you can take two or more published works of art and merge them into one story. This is referred as a crossover story. For example Harry Potter and Captain Kirk fight in the land of Narnia.
I'm just making these up as I go along guys..
Anyways, I am a die hard True Blood fan and I'm also a Dexter geek. So I would love to share with my fellow nerds an excerpt from Chapter 2 of my fanfic novel called:
Death to The Undead: The Killing
Chapter 2: A Time To Kill
This was it. This was the moment that Dexter Morgan and Eric Northman would meet and the end result would be blood. Who's blood will spill on the floors of the famous Miami vampire bar BloodLust? Eric's fangs retracted backward and so did Pam's. The other vampires followed suit and Dexter put down his syringe and gave Eric an incredulous look.
"Welcome to BloodLust Dexter Morgan. We have been expecting you."
"Thanks. I'm looking for a loyal patron of yours. Vincent Chapelle."
"He's not here," said Pam.
"Quiet! Eric scolded her. Let's talk in private shall we Mr. Morgan?"
Eric leaped out of his throne and within a millisecond stood an inch away from Dexter. Dexter barely had time to flinch when Eric stood before him. Eric pointed his hand over to the direction of his office and Dexter followed closely behind him. Pam walks closely behind Dexter and undresses him with her eyes.
"I've heard what you do to your victims. Any chance I can be tranquilized and saran wrapped to a kill table? I think the two of us would have a lot of fun." Pam said.
Dexter smiled coyly at Pam and followed Eric into his office. The door shuts in front of Pam's face and she is disappointed that she has been excluded from the meeting with her maker and the killer of serial killers of Miami Metro PD.
Dexter has an understanding of Eric's ties to BloodLust and he is well aware of Eric's oath never to kill another human ever gain. After Sookie was murdered in a tragic accident, he made a vow to his maker Godric that he will always value human life as if it were his own. This didn't stop Eric from feeding on humans which was a classic pastime of his. However, he knew precisely when to stop and he was also aware that if he ever found himself in the same predicament as Bill Compton, that he would choose his own life over a human being. Dexter respected his oath and it is the only reason why BloodLust is the only vampire bar that exists in Miami.
There have been a number of vampire bars that have popped up here and there in Miami, but they all have succumbed to the demise of Dexter Morgan once it was revealed human blood was being spilled fatally by vampires. Dexter's new code is to kill any vampire that kills another human being. Eric Northman's BloodLust bar brought a hefty amount of revenue to the city of Miami. Many citizens including the mayor were supportive of the bar when its doors first opened. There was a ribbon cutting on the grand opening day as well as a parade. Miami residents chose BloodLust as their campground for prospects to have vampiric sex and to escape from their mundane lives into the world of the supernatural.
It is no wonder that a large number of human BloodLusters have a tendency to have high-stressed jobs. The bar's clientele represents politicians, lawyers, doctors, and even law enforcement. Sgt. Batista and Agent Quinn of Miami Metro are frequent patrons who have spent a large amount of their hard-earned money the infamous vampire bar. Eric asks Dexter to be seated and Dexter carefully sits down and peruses the homemade office of Eric Northman. On Eric's desk, there is a photograph of Sookie Stackhouse smiling with her head cocked to the side.
"I need you to kill Bill Compton. In exchange, I will deliver Vincent Chapelle."
"Why would I do this for you?" Dexter asked.
"Because I want what you want. And I know this kill request does not violate the code."
The code. Eric is the only vampire who knows about the code. Dexter only kills men or women who are pathological murderers. His code was altered recently when vampires were exposed to the world, and they are now a part of the code. However, he only kills those with malicious and evil intent to destroy innocent life. Dexter was well aware of Bill Compton's story. He knew that evening in front of Merlotte's bar in the woods that Sookie's death was a tragic accident. What Bill did was manslaughter not murder and according to the code, that makes a difference to being placed on Dexter's kill table.
"Bill Compton is not a murderer."
"There is a lot to Bill Compton that you don't know about Dexter. He's slaughtered hundreds of innocent victims over the last 200 years. Vincent Chapelle's death is a nonentity compared to that of Bill Compton's. If you want my opinion, you're hunting the wrong man."
"Your opinion means nothing to me."
"Yes, but Vincent's blood does. Let's work together here Morgan. We both want the same thing, an assassination of another member of the undead is not exactly a damaging loss to this generation or to the world. I highly doubt there will be a funeral for this man when he meets his demise. So do we have an agreement?"
Eric was quite convincing. It was obvious that he had no intentions of helping Dexter find Vincent if Bill is not found. However, Dexter was curious as to why Northman couldn't simply take Bill out himself. After all Eric is older than Bill and more powerful. Eric is also obviously a vampire with supernatural abilities and Dexter is simply human.
"You can't kill Compton yourself? Why me? Or hire another vampire to do your dirty work."
"When I was dethroned as sheriff of Area 5 and left Bon Temps, I was excommunicated from the state of Louisiana. Bill is also the King of the state and has become quite powerful and very well connected. If I set foot in Bon Temps I will suffer the true death immediately. The same goes for Pam and any other vampire in my circle. Bill has a watchful eye on my every move since he knows that I have every intention of staking him if we cross paths again. He's on a high security alert and expects my move at any moment. "
"So where do I come in?"
"Bill knows what you are and who you are on paper. But he doesn't know the code. According to Bill and the rest of Bon Temps, you're a forensics geek who lives with his son in Miami. You are of no significance to them. You may appear as prey at first sight, but that is what will give you access to destabilize his security and blindside him in an attack. He won't even see you coming. He's expecting me to attack him with another vampire, a wolf, or a shifter. He even expects me to hire a witch to do it. However, having some geeky forensics blood splatter expert come in to undermine his authority and kill him at will is something of a long shot to Bill and his royal sphere of servants."
Dexter took a moment to ponder at the idea of killing a vampire. Bill would not be the first, nor would he be the last. Dexter knew only one thing remains, Vincent Chapelle had to pay for his sins, and if that meant killing Bill Compton, then that was a price he was willing to pay. It is time to kill Bill.
