Character Quiz: Where Should Sookie Stackhouse Spend a Year Abroad?
A feature in which television characters take a BuzzFeed (or similar) quiz.
True Blood finishes up its seven-year run this month, and I think everyone can agree that the best thing that Sookie Stackhouse, its half-fairy heroine, could do after its conclusion is get the hell out of Bon Temps. (Both for her sake and for that of those around her.) So, if Sookie was to set off on a voyage of self-discovery, where should she go? We turn to BuzzFeed’s “Where Should You Spend a Year Abroad?” quiz to help her decide.
Sookie’s fairy abilities mean that she’s constantly hearing people’s thoughts in her head. And, since those thoughts are often unkind (sometimes deservedly so), no doubt she’s rather escape them for a while.
Ah, the days when Sookie had free time before she got mired in all the misery of having super-hot vampire boyfriends. Sookie’s never given much interest in cultural matters, so here we’re going to have to go with the one activity that we have seen her do: sunbathe.
None of these stylish pads really fit Sookie’s old fashioned aesthetic, inherited from her grandmother, but the closest is this very blue one in the bottom right.
Clear winner here. Bon Temps is such a supernatural hellmouth that there’s no way Sookie could avoid having a skewed perception of the world. Also, she’s really annoying, so she could use a little more perspective on herself.
Have we ever seen Sookie eat? No? (Understandable with all the nekkedness, I guess.) Well, she probably got a whole lot of free meals from Merlotte’s back when she actually showed up for work, so diner breakfast it is.
Sookie has the love and adoration of a bunch of rich, ancient vampires. Money is no object here. Failing their help, I bet Bon Temps would take up a collection to get her out of town for a while. $40,000 should be no problem.
Sookie would absolutely keep her Southern, sexy-good-girl style abroad; since the girl doesn’t seem to own much in the way of pants, short-shorts it is.
Er, Sookie isn’t a big reader (True Blood is not one of those shows sprinkled with literary references), but the romance of a woman torn between multiple men in A Room With A View would probably hit home for Sookie.
A bright, sunny beach with no vampires in sight is just what Sookie needs. So where is she heading?
Australia! Just about as far away from Bon Temps as you can get without heading to outer space (and incidently, the real-life birthplace of Ryan Kwanten, the actor who plays her brother Jason). No doubt Sookie would make a pretty naive tourist, so it’s probably a good idea to send her off somewhere where she speaks the language. Regardless, there most likely won’t be many tears shed in Bon Temps when she leaves.
