Hey Jessica
I think glamouring people is totally fine, as long as you don't do it every day or for fun. I mean, you did it to keep Hoyt from being hurt, right? Anyways, I'm sure that you'll find a way to make stuff right with Hoyt. You really are trying, so everything's going to turn out in the end. By the way, even though you're mad at Sookie, she can't really change the whole Bill thing. And that doll has something seriously creepy about it, so if it shows up again, I say burn it and throw the ashes in a lake!
You're my favorite character,
Jess H

Jessica I know it is hard, maybe you can talk to Hoyt now that he has been glamoured and doesn't remember the guy at Fangtasia about how he would be unhappy if he had to eat say eggs everyday for the rest of his life, that you need variety and that you can feed and it not be sexual for you. That you still love him and want to include him in the decision. April

You have a good heart, Jessica, you'll know when it's right to do it. If it will ease the pain and suffering of others, then it's right. For your own selfish wants? You know the answer to that.

And the doll...? Um, where did you get that... doll. I'd recommend a new Tonka truck or some Duplo blocks, but that doll looks a bit too old and a bit over used. I know you're intensions were in the best place, but that dolls really should be retired, unless it's over 100 years old, then sell it to a doll collector and with the money you get from that, you can buy Mikey a whole mess of new toys.

Hang in there, girl. You're doing fine.

And Bill made you, it's his *DUTY* to teach you what you need to be the best vampire you can be. There are humans out there who accidentally conceive a child, but that does not let them off the hook for being the best possible parent and teaching their child to the best of their ability, imparting knowledge to help that child thrive. Bill didn't intend to make you, but make you he did. It's his responsibility to be a good parent-vampire. He was once a father, he should understand the duty of a father to raise their child, just as he should raise you to become more than what you are. Bill has issues accepting his responsibility, send him to me, I'll set him straight.

Trust your instincts. If it doesn't feel right, then don't do it. If you want to be feeding off of other people, you should've talked to Hoyt about it before you went and did it. You agreed to be in an exclusive, monogamous relationship with him and it ain't fair to him to be sneaking around behind his back. Think about if he did that to you, went around and kissed other girls (or more), how would you feel?

Jessica glamoring is a sensitive subject matter, i would say that it would have to depend on who you are and why you are. You glamored Hoyt because you wanted his forgiveness, but I would not suggest doing that again, but a Vamps gotta do, what a Vamps gotta do...
With the whole not knowing if you should go to Bill or not I would say that he is your maker and that he cares for you. You should talk to him and ask questions.Also maybe just go and visit him once and a while i think he would like that.

There's alot of people who will try to tell you things are one way or another, but nothing is black and white. Each situation requires it's own response. Us humans, we respond to what we feel, each and every memory, the things which we attribute to make up our 'character', all come from how we feel from any given experience. When altering a person's memory, just be aware of the full effect of your change.

Hey Jessica. I know it hurt you to glamour Hoyt. Try talking to him that Tru Blood does nothing to you, & that it's disgusting even. I know that you must feel bad to just keep draining his blood all the time. & Hoyt didn't mean it like that when he said (he didn't want any of that shit) guys just don't know how to phrase things. Bill probably misses you, you should go see him more often. He loves you like a daughter. You seen how happy he got when he seen you. I believe that his momma probably put a spell or something to that doll to keep coming back to your house. Try glamouring your dinner afterwards so they don't blab out to other people about you :) Hope things get better for you guys.


P.S Did you asked Lafayette if you can bring some food to Hoyt after your shift?

I feel that it depends on what your are glamouring them for or why... since Im not a vampire I can't really tell you what is wrong or wrong only you can decide that for your self... And as for Bill that even though he is a King he is still your maker and should help you figure out anything that you need help with.See yah next week. great job too.
