Fanfic: In Understanding (Godric & Eric)

My other Godric/Eric fics: Sanctuary | What You Love Most | Beyond All Telling | Generations Of Brilliance

First True Blood fic - the first of five fic requests - written for verbyna from the Godric/Eric community, who gave me the prompt: 'I want people to tell their children terrifying stories about the things we did for love'.

Just a couple of references, for those who want a memory refresh:
- 'You have a lot of love for him' / 'Don't use words I don't understand': This was part of a conversation Eric and Sookie had in season 2, found here.
- 'This is personal for you': This was part of a conversation Bill and Eric had in season 2, found here.
- 'There are centuries of faith and love between us': This was part of a conversation Godric and Eric had in season 2, found here.
- The explanation of Godric's history as to how he may have possibly lived on the coast is found in the True Blood Wiki, here.

Title: In Understanding
Author: Harmony (Silver Harmony)
Characters/Pairing: Godric & Eric, mentions of Eric/Sookie
Rating: M
Word Count: Approximately 2,680.
Disclaimer: Not mine, sadly.
Notes: Set some time after the end of Season 4, assuming a canonical Eric/Sookie progression as opposed to a Bill/Sookie one (judging by the direction the books turn). I intended to explore how readily Eric shows his feelings for Sookie in canon and how his relationship with Godric contrasts with this.
Feedback: Very much appreciated, as I need it to improve. Thank you!
Summary: Don’t use words I don’t understand.
