Hello, Fellow Readers! There are spoilers ahead – please do not read if you do not want to be spoiled.
Earlier this month, Charlaine Harris (CH) released Dead Ever After – the last book in her Southern Vampire Mysteries Series.
Fans’ displeasure was quickly known due in part to a German blogger who made the ending public before the book was released in the U.S. (The only place disgruntled fans can’t be heard is on CH’s Facebook page where the mods are quickly deleting any comment that doesn’t say they looooovvvvved the book LOL)
While I jumped ship on the series after book 8 (when I checked out CH’s forums in her blog and caught wind of where she was headed) I still felt for my friends who were still following this series, hoping against hope that somehow everything would be all right.
But when that didn’t happen, it was such a consolation to show them to Tumblr where creative people have found a way to work through their grief and start to heal from how disappointed they were. So, if you know anyone who was let down with how this series ended, show them this post.
Laughter, after all, is the best medicine.
CH telling her fans: “Let them Eat Shifter Cake!”
(while she laughs all the way to the bank)
While these are funny, this next one is probably my favorite:
I also stumbled across this blog, If Charlaine Harris Had Written which gives other story plots and gives them the Harris touch. For example:
If Charlaine Harris had written The Lord of the Rings,
Frodo and Sam would go through it all right to the gates of Mordor, then Gollum would snatch the ring from them and give it to Sauron, who’d kill them both of course.
Gandalf would be forced to serve Saruman for the rest of his loooooong life, all the elves would just leave Middle Earth with a “bye sorry but there’s no hope for you” including Arwen of course, and Aragorn would never get his kingdom or his love back.
People and hobbits would just learn to suck it up and accept Sauron’s reign. It’s not THAT bad after all.
If Charlaine Harris had written Star Wars,
At the end of Return of the Jedi, Leia would decide she really would rather be with C3P0, and break up with Han.
Finally, the following video made me crack up so much, hope it makes y’all fell better, too.
