Fictional Girlfriend: Vampire Pam

Screen shot 2013-05-09 at 11.49.16 AMI hate spoilers. Hate them. So I’ve been trying to keep away from discussions about DEAD EVER AFTER by Charlaine Harris, the final book in the long-running Sookie Stackhouse/True Blood series. But it’s hard to stay away from everything. Case in point – I came across a very interesting article by the Wall Street Journal in which Ms. Harris states she received death threats from some cray-crays out there upset about the ending. Geesh, ya’ll.

Here is where I could use some wisdom from our next candidate for Best Fictional Girlfriend, none other than Sookie Stackhouse’s own Pamela Swynford De Beaufort, a.k.a. Vampire Pam. Pam would have some choice words for those so called ‘fans.’ While she doesn’t always show a lot of emotion, she also doesn’t take shit from anyone, which is point number one in why she’d make such a great girlfriend.Screen shot 2013-05-09 at 12.14.48 PM

Point number two: She can back up her sarcastic, no nonsense smack talk with some serious bite. Pun completely intended.

Point number three: She doesn’t play favorites. Men, women, black, white, humans, vampires – it’s all good. Or all bad, depending.

Another point in her favor: Since Pam can pull off wearing both hard core goth outfits as well as demure pastel twinsets, you can take her to Fangtasia for a night out, or to your local Fellowship for a little bit of prayer and she’ll always look spot on.

Lastly, she seems completely comfortable in her own skin, and isn’t that something we can all admire?

  1. The Sookie series sent me on a vampire reading fest. I even wrote a vampire book. I recommend Laurell K Hamilton’s Anita Blake series. Very cool creatures and interesting stories. Her Merry Gentry books are excellent too.

  2. I’m only about halfway through the book series (I didn’t realize there was one until I’d been a fan of the TV show for awhile) but I have to say that I really loved how when we first meet Vampire Pam in the books, she’s rocking that Stepford Wife country club pink sweater twinsets with a matching headband look. So different than her all-goth-all-the-time look on screen. To me, the ‘normalcy’ made her all the scarier!
