Hi I was a member of the fellowship of the sun, I was there that night Godric the sheriff of the vampires, stopped this other Big vampires from killing every one. Godric seemed like HE WAS SO nice, he should be your spokes person, HE seams Real in how he wants humans and vampires to Co exist.. I felt so sad when Steve new land had Godric house bombed. Humans are bad too. Humans may fan the flames of hatred for Vampires, but lets Face it you are Fighting, over thousands of years You have not evolved you only grow more brutal more predatory. I don’t see the danger in vampires treating us as equals. The fellowship the sun Arose because you never did so. After all True Blood was not always around, YOU DID feed on something. FOR thousands of years us. “Oh I have the power of Empathy I can here things most people don’t want me to here, You really should be staked Nan, I herd you tell the one vampire in the club Fangtashia that humans are far dummer than they realize, You are pretty stupid ur self To believe that.

"I believe humanity was born from conflict. Maybe that's why in all of us lives a dark side. Some of us embrace it. Some have no choice. The rest of us fight it. And in the end, it's as natural as the air we breathe. Some point, we're forced to face the truth…ourselves.

i believe that vampires deserve a chance to live their lifes with us … they didn't make nothing wrong they are persons just like we are, and it doesn't matter how they eat it matters what they do to live and co-exist with us , they work like us, they have a home a life they deserve to live has much has we do , cause sometimes the ones that don't deserve to co-existe are us humans because sometimes we can be worst that vampires …vampires before they use the sintetic blood they needed to eat but most of them feed on us but didn't killed us cause they knew when to stop…but sence centuries that human kind is murder and killed by his own kind!
now tell me what's worst, feed on people but don't let them die, or human killer's killyng his own kind for plesure and amusement?

I had a problem with vampires in my neighborhood that kept picking on me all the time. It got so bad that I had to move! In west Philadelphia born and raised and on the playground was where I spent most of my days. Chillin' out maxin' relaxin' all cool and all shootin some b-ball outside of school when a couple of vampires who were up to no good startin making trouble in my neighborhood. I got in one little fight and my mom got scared. She said 'You're movin' with your auntie and uncle in Bel Air'.

I just wrote what's on my mind about all of this …

July 23, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterNita

I feel that vampires should be accepted. It's like being from a different culture with different attitudes. Since going to university, I've been forced to become accepting of EVERYONE including the vampires that attend. I feel that it is a much easier way to live. Being different is a burden, but with everyone discriminating against you, that burden becomes much heavier. Everyone should be accepted.
AVL, you have my vote all the way.

Since Russell is still alive, just buried in cement, are humans still safe if he happens to break free? Who will protect everyone?

July 23, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterChuck M

I am so glad that you have made this website to show all of the humans that you are sincere in your quest…..for extinction of us. It is true Nan that you were overheard telling Eric that humans are gullible…But I so love True Blood…I can not wait till you are exposed for the treacherous, lying back stabbing Bitch that you are!!

She did way more than that Nan humilaited Godric the sherrif of area 9 for doing what he did trying to set an exampel on how humans and vampier could co exsist.
It backfired on godric horrorbily, by sterve newland who sent a young boy to blow Godric and the other vampiers up, Godric and the vampiers were a victum, and Nan treated Godric like he was the bad guy Humilliated Goric called Godric a dummy in front of every one even his fellownest mates and striped him of his titel of sheriff, godric was so sad that he killed him self NAN thanks alot THANKS A HELL OF A LOT for, Geting rid of the nicest VAMPIER i or any human will ever know.

What happened to Jerry was a tragedy that was caused by a madman. I know that I wouldn't want to be judged by what Hitler or Hussein did, so why should the vampire community be judged by what Russell Edgington did.

But, as an actual broadcast major, where can I apply for the scholarship?
(Seriously, you don't throw around the hope of free money to a college kid without getting a few interested)

Hey, Angel, I don't think Nan cares what you think. You're barely literate. Spell check might help.

why didnt the vampire who Russell and all vampires answer to deal with Russell instead of this Northmann guy. Yes, the authority has someone they have to answer to who makes the authority look like wimps.

Queen "A" as I will call her for safety reasons (plus she will likely be paying me a surprise visit when she sees this) who is the first vampire ever dropped the ball.

She should have dealt with him and made Russell meet the true death but she probably too busy with her new progeny to care.

A vampire king or queen dealing with rogue vampires like Russell is more important than their sex life.

p.s. good riddance to Nan. she was a big fat phony and everyone who is a vampire king or queen knew it.

same with Franklin Mott (whoeve iced him I want to thank) cause he ripped me off big time when I had do some work for me.

btw, I like Jerry's tv show. he was fair and balanced when it came to reporting. he reminded me of tv newscaster David Brinkley back in the day.

He was like Mr. Rogers compared to Nancy Grace (is she even human cause I am not sure cause I get a supe vibe off her for some reason
