The Invention Of Roses

Pam: "Fangtasia!'s mine now, and we're understaffed, so make yourself useful."
Tara: "So basically I'm your slave? The more things change, the more they fucking stay the same."
Pam: "I am of another time and don't understand the undertones of what you are saying."

Various vampers and fangbangers starting hitting on Tara immediately, so you know it's only a matter of time until... There it is. She bites into a cute blonde girl, dragging her hilariously over the bar and then dropping her on her head when Pam snatches Tara away and holds her, about halfway up the wall, by the throat.

Blonde: "So I guess I'll be looking for another outlet for my self-destructive tendencies."
Pam: "Repeat after me. I will never, ever, ever fucking feed in public where people can see me and report me to the goddamn authorities [or the Authority, more importantly]."
Tara: "I thought I was supposed to eat people! You made me eat people!"
Pam: "Listen close. I saved your fucking life, and lent you some truly exquisite clothes. But if you do anything to mess with Fangtasia!, I will silver you and stick you in a coffin to rot until the next millennium. Understand?"
Tara: "No! My constant oppression! ...But yes."

HERVEAUX

Sookie: "Would you mind terribly if I took a little peek inside your head?"

Nice manners, Sook. And Doug obliges.

But also, this danger she's in just gets more and more overdetermined, doesn't it? Like, the show has played it pretty close -- ever since Maryann and Queen Sophie Anne -- that it's about her blood, about how anybody who knows she is/there are faerie has to be killed to prevent her death/a genocide. But just like in S1 and in the books, there's also the fact of her telepathy itself. She can't read vampires, which is why she's still alive, but she can read their human familiars just fine... And if it gets out that she can fuck with glamours -- which is, if you think about it, the #1 survival adaptation vampires have, it's basically the codes to the entire universe in terms of how things work in real life -- that's more dangerous than anything else she could possibly do. So she's good food and a dangerous wild card, both at the same time. Isn't that interesting?

That night, Doug was eating nachos when a lady came into the office, glamoured him, forced him to help her dig up Russell -- with her vampire hands! -- and carry him out of there and to a safe spot somewhere else.
