I was created after my human stumbled across @SookieBonTemps page under the True Blood Fans page on May 25, 2010. I didn’t seem to have much luck finding single RPers to play with. But two weeks later, I stumbled across a new Eric. He wasn’t a traditional Eric, which was fine because while I was true to Sookie, I wasn’t traditional. We always made jokes about him chasing me and while the time we RPed was short-lived, it was good. He was sweet and kind. We talked in DMs and I learned he lived in Australia, while my human lives in Louisiana IRL. He told me about his family and work. When he disappeared I waited patiently, by this time I had my twin and my human always kept an eye out for him. On July 3, 2010, he Dmed about his illness and apologized for not being on. He had said he would be back that week and that was the last I heard from him. I saw the tweet this morning announcing his death and I was in shock. A few weeks ago, he was thinking he’d be feeling well enough to come back and now he is gone for good. I am unable to continue on and so I will be retiring this account and eventually deactivating it. My human lost a friend and RP partner and I lost my Eric. I appreciate everyone’s support for @MrEric_Northman ‘s family and friends. Thank you to TrueBloodWiki for setting up a way for donations to be made to the American Cancer Society in his Human’s name: Andrew Marsden. He will be missed by those of us who were lucky enough to have met him in his short time on True Blood Role Play. Most of all by myself as his Sookie, who wasn’t lucky enough to have him around long enough to catch me….
- ~ My human struggled with this decision and feels the best way to honor Andrew as her Eric for @Sookie_S_ is by allowing Sookie to remain in their SL forever. Thank you for everyone’s kind and loving words. My human and I will remain with TBRP and @MrEric_Northman will always be remembered.~*
