Thinking about immortality [22 Aug 2007|11:45pm]

[ mood | curious ]

Hello all!

I'm brand new to both this community and the vampire chronicles and I was thinking on something that I thought might make an interesting discussion topic. I have Cerebral Palsy and am confined to a wheelchair. A friend of mine recently brought up the fact that my love of Rice's books come from my preoccupation with the idea that if I were bitten I would no longer have my disability. But if the vampires maintain the same physicality they had at the time of their change, I wasn't sure if that would be true, or maybe if it counted as a sickness I would no longer feel.
    I wrote to Ms. Rice about this and she explained that the vampires gradually are restored to an ideal form and grow stronger with time, eventually being able to defy gravity. My question to you all is, how long do you think that process would take? After all in "Interview" it is made clear that Claudia will never be a woman. But Ms. Rice stated that as i grew stronger I would be completely able as a vampire. I'd love to hear your thoughts on this.

Hello! [22 Aug 2007|11:12am]

[ mood | thoughtful ]

Hello. I'm new here, just joined yesterday. I've been reading and loving Anne Rice's Vampire Chronicles since grade 8. My favourites are Interview with the Vampire, The Vampire Lestat, Queen of the Damned, The Vampire Armand, and Blood and Gold. I've read about two hundred pages of The Tale of the Body Theif and I didn't much like it. I haven't read Memnoch the Devil yet and so far, I don't really plan to.

What I want to know is, which character out of the whole Vampire Chronicles was your favourite? Vices, virtues, their personality and beliefs--which one touched you the most and made you feel the strongest connection to them?

New releases? [16 Jul 2007|10:25pm]

Has she released any other book lately?
I read till Merrick, from the Vampire Chronicles, but the next two didn't seem too appealing. Too many new characters that ignored the beloved old ones.. I just couldn't go through the second chapter of Blackwood farm.
But what about the other series?

Maybe you've seen this...but I personally wish she would talk about her other works besides the vamps.

Read more...Collapse )

I prefer her books under the pennames A.N. Roquelaure and Anne Rampling over the Vampire Chronicles during my entire pre-adolensce I read the vampire books, now they just seem so childish to me. Instead of being annoyed with her 'finding God' I've realized that she's mostly finding herself through religion, who am I as a fan to feel hurt? Through The Beauty Triology, Belinda and Exit to Eden I discovered pieces of myself which makes me feel a bit of anger towards the writer for no longer believing in her work.

Anyone else feel that way?

Just out of curiosity...does anyone wish Anne had written a novel solely for Gabrielle, Lestat's mother? I mean I haven't read the Chronicles in a long while but hardly anything has ever been said of where she had been or who she had met when she wasn't with Lestat all those years right? I always thought Gabrielle could have grown to be a amazing character if Anne would have given her more light, but instead Gabrielle will now forever be just Lestat's mom who is sometimes there and sometimes just not and no one really cares either way because of lack of personality. No offense to Anne but she did the same to a few other of her characters as well including Mael- although Mael did have a better standing due to his ties with Marius. Didn't she once promise a full novel on Mael? That never happened unfortunately either...But yeah I felt Gabrielle never got a chance to shine and I was hoping all those years Anne would have at least put a little more effort into her.

I guess this also just is my wish there were more stronger females in the Chronicles. Mona certainly wasn't, nor Jesse. Pandora is the only one you could really call such.

The Passion of the Rice [30 Mar 2007|07:10pm]

dementia
Movie version of Vampire author's Christ coming to screen.

March 30, 2007 - It was pretty big news when Anne Rice, author of Interview with a Vampire and countless other gothic-themed novels, wrote Christ the Lord: Out of Egypt, a story about the childhood years of Jesus. Now the best-selling tome is headed to the big screen, and a casting search is on for the boy who will play the young messiah in the film.

No talent is attached to the project at this time, but announcements are expected in the coming months. The production is being staged by a company called Good News Holdings, backed by Christian church researcher and author George Barna. It remains to be seen whether the production will be a legitimately artistic venture, a la Mel's Passion, or a strictly subcultural cheesefest like the Kirk Cameron-led Left Behind.

The movie will film on location in Israel this October.  David Kirkpatrick, co-founder of Good News Holdings said, "It was always important to Anne Rice that we make every effort to be authentic to the cultural context in which Jesus grew up. We felt the best way to match her exhaustive background research on Jesus' life and times was by shooting the film in Israel."

Christ the Lord: Out of Egypt tells the story of Jesus Christ at age seven as he and his family depart Egypt to return home to Nazareth. Told from his childhood perspective, it follows young Jesus as he grows into his religious identity.

The production company hopes to have the film in theaters in Fall 2008.

Hey, if you don't know about it, there is the history of fan fiction wiki project which is basically as stated: A wiki dedicated to chronicling the history of fan fiction. It desperately needs contributions and assistance with updating articles from people other than myself.


A page I thought might be of interest to you is Anne Rice which needs work in a couple of areas including identifying the well known and influential fans, finding out important dates and events that took place in the community, any fandom specific terminology and details of any kerfluffles that took place in the community. If you have the time and inclination, I would be extremely grateful for any updates you could make to the Anne Rice article or any other article.

Christ the Lord out of Egypt [24 Jan 2007|03:43pm]

sunneyone
So I finally settle down to read Christ the Lord out of Egypt and I love it. I'm not finished yet, but it's beautifully written (how could an Anne book not be?). I'm really enjoying reading the story. I grew up in a church, but of course, they don't teach any kind of childhood for Jesus. So I'm finding her interpretation so interesting. I'm sure she researched it to the letter, she just seems to be the type. Is she writing this as a new series? If so, I can't wait for the next one!

AR is my one and only! [03 Nov 2006|02:30pm]

jenny_xo_sweety
Hello! I am a HUGE fan of Anne Rice. I've read most, if not all of her books more than once.
I've loved her since I was ten years old and have had this obsession with vampires for ever.
So I'm pretty estatic to have found this community. I hope to be a part of everything that goes on here.

I cannot for the life of me pick a favorite book! I love them all. The only one I couldn't quite get into was Violin, but nonetheless read it anyway. My favorite character would have to be Louis or Lestat. I cannot pick between the two.

I feel so horrible that Anne will not be writing anymore Vampire books. It almost makes me cry thinking about it. I grew up with Anne! She is a huge part of my life, (may sound weird, but true).

Thank you again for this community!

Welcome to Facets of Blood--where there is, in fact, plenty of blood--though blood isn't the only thing spilt. It's the present year and technology, as always, is on the rise. But technology isn't the only thing rising at an incredible rate.Sunnydale, California, home to a fairly large Hellmouth* has become swamped with more than the usual mess of vampires and demons--there's a new werecreature population that only adds to the local Slayers' problems. The Slayers aren't the only ones with problems, however, for the sudden influx of supernatural beings in Sunnydale has caused quite a stir, effecting creatures all around the globe. The Hellmouth's power to attract beings of a non-natural nature has always been strong, but never so strong as to effect so many.The reasons for the Hellmouth's energy boost are as yet unknown, but what is known is this: either the mortals and immortals find a way to create a balance, or destroy one another in the process.*A Hellmouth is an area of increased supernatural energy.

Characters we're in search of (though any others are welcome):
Buffy/Angel: Giles, Scoobies, Angel
Laurell K. Hamilton: Richard, Jean-Claude, Edward
The Vampire Chronicles: Any and all.

So I decided. [31 Oct 2006|09:08am]

[ mood | thankful ]

I've decided to use Lestat and Louis for my compare/contrast essay assignment.  They seemed to be pretty popular suggestion-wise, but even if someone didn't suggest them, thanks to everyone who did give me suggestions anyhow ^__^

So far I've made possible points for them having rough starts, (being) lovers, power, hedonism, and personality.  I don't know if I'll use all of them, but I do think it gives me a good start for my rough draft.  Hm, that's due tomorrow ....  So I guess now I'd better go start it!

Your opinions. [25 Oct 2006|10:10pm]

First off, I shall state that I am *not* asking for anyone to do my homework. This is just looking for suggestions, if anyone wants to give any.

Anyways, for English class I have to do a compare/contrast essay. I have an idea for two historical figures, but a friend of mine told me he was going the protagonists from two series he reads. So I thought, perhaps I compare/contrast two of the vampires?

Just, which two? If anyone wanted to share their preferred charactes, perhaps it could be a prompt.

Anne Rice [25 Oct 2006|04:28pm]

[ mood | contemplative ]

I know she's happy now and I'm glad for her. It was bound to happen. Talented people that deal with such controversial art always seem to find God one way or another.

Anne Rice has nailed her vampire novels into a coffin.
"I will never write those kind of books again -- never," Rice said, referring to three decades of work that include bestsellers like "Interview with the Vampire" and other books in the Vampire Chronicles series. Her books about witches and dark angels, she said, "were reflections of a world that didn't include redemption."


There were times when I was younger and living with a deeply pious (yet mentally unstable) father, he believed he was a true prophet of Jesus Christ or something. Her books were my escape from that unstable crutch. Am I the only one that still feels a sense of betrayal? Or perhaps I am just being a bitch I have no right to say she's wrong I don't want to say that at all. It's just the vampires, Beauty and Belinda were and still are in a sense a big part of my life. Reading her work made me want to become a writer myself, I admire her immensely even now for her talent.

It just feels...
