True Blood Quotes

Eric Northman is nothing if he is not pure fucking sex on a throne.


I don't know what it is about me that makes people think I want to hear their problems. Maybe I smile too much. Maybe I wear too much pink. But please remember I can rip your throat out if I need to. And also know that I am not a hooker. That was a long, long time ago
