Earlier this year, we did a throwdown between the Brothers of the Black Dagger Brotherhood. So we thought it might be fun to have a similar contest between our favorite hotties from True Blood. First up, we’ve got the Sookie’s suitors: Bill and Eric. Which will you choose?
Let us know in comments, and we’ll announce the winner who’ll be matched against the winner of the next round.
"It is more important than ever that we restrain ourselves, even if it is against our nature.”
Turned against his will during the American Civil War by Lorena, William ‘Bill’ Compton, knows a thing or two about fighting, either hand to hand, with weapons of every kind, fangs or a little thing called glamouring.
The mysterious vampire with a sexy Southern drawl appears at Merlotte’s one night and is the first person Sookie can’t ’read;’ she is unable to hear his thoughts the way she can everyone else. But is that a good thing, or a bad thing?
Considering all that the man hides, for Sookie, it sucks, and will eventually break her heart, but for Bill it lends to his own devious plans.
At 5’10’ with broad shoulders, the muscular arms of a man long accustomed to manual labor, thick brown hair and a smile that glows, Bill’s classic Southern Gentleman act draws Sookie in, as it will many other opponent. Like a Gemini with twin syndrome, we can’t quite figure out if he’s dangerous or harmless. All the more reason to fear him in a fight where you can’t tell if he’s going to acquiesce, stab you in the back, kick you when your down, or head straight for your jugular.
Bill, whilst not as old, as say, Eric, was touted by the King of Mississippi, Russell Edgington, as a vampire with much potential …now how that may be construed could mean many things.
With a lethal combination of compassion and mystery, I wouldn’t want to meet him in a dark alley.
Eric Northman. Sheriff of Area 5. Oh, great Nordic one. Why do we love you so much?
Is it your prowess with aggressors (namely Bill) and against anyone who might wish to harm Sookie?
Eric has staying power in more ways than one; he’s loyal to whomever holds the crown, even when it happens to be in the possession of someone who got it through nefarious means. He is smart and ruthless when he needs to be. And, he can really hang a pair of trousers. (Bonus: tight abs and ass!)
I was taken with him on day one, by his captivating wit and sinful swagger. If I had to chose just one moment from this season, it would have to be his profession of devotion to Sookie as she stood before him in her towel-free nudity. The words cut through me, as if he were uttering them in my own boudoir: “I never gave up on you, Sookie.”
Double swoon, people! He is devoted to this woman. With or without faerie blood, he has stayed by her side and waited patiently. He’s told her the truth when he knew that it would cut like bullets through her porcelain skin. That takes courage. Not to mention the fact that this is what makes a true romance hero.
Ok, so he mistakenly drained her faerie god mother in a matter of seconds. If he had his memory, that totally wouldn’t have happened. And, let’s face it… shit happens when you have amnesia and fangs. The two don’t exactly equal harmony.
So, to my fellow members of Team H&H, you may as well put your laptops and notebooks away. Whichever way you dice it up, Eric is, pound for pound, the most bitchin’ guy around.
