Twitter True Blood interviews: @GodricofBlood, @Pam_atFangtasia, @JessicaHamby, @HoytFortenberry

Read the backstory to these interviews.

Godric | @GodricofBlood

(The circumstances of which I was able to conduct this interview can not be divulged. It was, however, pretty cool.)

Rebecca Wilcott: What was it about Eric that led you to turn him?

Godric: I watched Eric for several weeks before I made that decision. I could have drained him just as easily as I did his companions but he was special. A human with that kind of fighting spirit, grace, and beauty was far too talented to rot in human flesh.

RW: Did you lose your fighting spirit? You offered yourself to the The Light of Day Institute for ritual sacrifice, then ultimately chose to end your own life in the rising sun. Did life lose its purpose?

Godric: Can you imagine 2000 years of existence? Almost 2000 years of bloodshed? For what purpose? What did I seek to achieve? There was no one left that I could learn from and I certainly had no desire left to teach. Immortality was not my choice. I too was turned and had to accept the new path I was given by my maker. I realized that life never had a purpose for me. My existence was not right. I did not live long enough as a human to fully understand what it meant. I should have died the day I was turned. That is what my destiny was.

RW: Do you see any of your own guidance mirrored in Eric?

Godric: When I ran into Eric again, there was no time to evaluate his performance as a vampire. He was alive. He must have been doing something right. I had not seen him in quite some time and our journeys and my teachings with him were nothing short of brutality. I taught him to kill and to survive.

RW: When I asked Eric what he thought about your death, he responded:

“I see only the difference between [Godric] and myself. He turned me to give me what I love most: life. He obviously did not feel the same. When I reach his age in another thousand years, perhaps I will understand his decision more than I do now.”

How would you respond to this?
