Fan works? [06 Feb 2011|05:22pm]

Hi, seeing as I´m the newest member here I guess introducing myself would be a good idea (shame on me for not doing it early on, lol).
I´ve been a fan of Anne Rice´s vampire chronicles ever since I started reading the books and am sad to see the series end with Blood Canticle. Anyho on to my question. A long time ago I googled for fanfiction for the series but only found pages saying Anne Rice forbade it. But I have seen a lot of fanfiction around here. So now I wonder, does Anne Rice still forbid fanfiction or have things changed?

Blood and Gold question [11 Aug 2010|03:51pm]

Hey all!

I got a question and I hope you could provide me with an answer =) I'm currently rereading The Vampire Chronicles. I'm on Queen of the Damned at the moment, the (unfortunately) last book in the series I've ever read so far. But I'm willing to change that. I'm particularly interested in reading Blood and Gold, since Marius and Mael are my favourite Rice vampires. And I've heard the rest of the series isn't all that amazing anyway.

Now my question is: do I need to have read all previous books to be able to follow Blood and Gold? Cause, the first few books are really connected and it might be harder to understand what they're all about if you haven't read the previous volumes. But is that also the case with Blood and Gold? Cause I kind of don't want to read all the rest =D Not because I'm not interested per se, but cause they're kinda hard to find over here (Belgium) and I don't feel like buying them all when I'm not even sure I'll like them.

Sorry for the novel, lol. It'd be great if you could give me some answers =) Thanks!

I <3 the Chronicles. :') [10 Feb 2009|07:05pm]

[ mood | optimistic ]

I've always known and loved the movies but only some 9 months ago I seriosuly got interested in the Chronicles... and recently finally got to check out the books (the first 4 of them). Will be reading them from cover to cover in time...

Check out my Lestat & Marius Fan Site, about the parent / child relationship between Lestat & Marius in the books and in the movie. Also there's my opinions on the Chronicles generally and on Lestat's character:

NAME: Benjamin
AGE: 24
SEX: Male

F a v o r i t e s

CHARACTER IN THE CHRONICLES: Lestat, Marius. Both individually and especially together. <3
"Louis, you're making it irresistable!" -Lestat
"You are the damnedest creature! You make me think of the old story about Alexander the Great. He wept when there was no more worlds to conquer. Will you weep when there's no more rules to break?" -Marius
"Only the impossible can do the impossible." -Nicki.
BOOK: The Vampire Lestat.
MOVIE BETWEEN IWTV or QOTD: Don't make me pick! IWTV is far superior as an adaptation of the book it bases on and is more powerful as a movie generally but... QOTD has some strange charm too. And it's the one with Lestat and Marius - they will always make it enjoyable, even if the script writers fucked the relationship up pretty much. Though not completely, fortunately...unlike certain musicals...
ANNE RICE SERIES: The Vampire Chronicles. I don't even know any others. And don't care. VC rules.

D i s l i k e s

CHARACTER: No one of the more main characters so far.
BOOK: I haven't read them ALL yet. So far liked all, except maybe IWTV isn't all that great as I don't much like the Lestat version in it.

R a n d o m:

FAV COLOR: Dark reds, dark blues and black.
FAV MOVIE: Peter Pan (2003), Queen of the Damned, Interview with the Vampire, Young Guns movies and The Breakfast Club.

Please allow me to introduce myself... [03 Jul 2008|09:39am]

Name: Kseniya
Age: 18
Sex: Female
Location: New York, NY
Orientation: Fickle. =P

F a v o r i t e s

Character in the Chronicles: Lestat, Armand.
"Only the impossible can do the impossible." - Nicki.
"The human imagination is a secret place of primitive memories and unconfessed desires." - Marius
Book: The Vampire Lestat, always and forever.
Character Name: Armand/Amadeo.
Movie between IWTV or QOTD: Interview. It's just infinitely and even incomparably better. Cinematographicaly, script-wise, and with the caliber of acting, it outdoes QOTD in every aspect.
Anne Rice series: The Vampire Chronicles, naturally. Though "Sleeping Beauty" is a close second.

D i s l i k e s

Character: Santiago, haha. What a bastard. Also, Claudia.
Book: Ugh, where do I start? Blood Canticle.
Scene: Anything in Blood Canticle or Memnoch the Devil or...

R a n d o m:

Fav color: Deep reds, royal blues, olive green.
Fav movie: Interview with the Vampire.
Fav food: Sushi.

PS: Um, hello? This is a group about the UNdead.
So... why is it dead? :'(

Well. I'm not great at these, but anyway.

Age: 22
Sex: Female
Orientation: Straight

Character in the Chronicles: Lestat, Louis, Claudia and Daniel
Book: Interview with the Vampire, Queen of the Damned, Tale of the Body Thief, Memnoch the Devil
Quote: The last sentences of Blood Canticle. Beautiful stuff.

I don't really dislike anything much about the series, but I enjoyed Blood and Gold and The Vampire Armand less than the other books.

Other stuff:
I love books and reading. My other favourite books are Philip Pullman's His Dark Materials trilogy, Catherine Jinks's Pagan series, Jacqueline Carey's Kushiel's Legacy series, Sara Douglass's Troy Game series, Isobelle Carmody's Obernewtyn series and a whole bunch of other stuff.

My favourite movies are Amelie, Run Lola Run, Monsoon Wedding, Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, and Life is Beautiful. I haven't seen either of the Vampire Chronicles movies.

My favourite TV series are anything by Joss Whedon.

I work as a book reviewer and sub-editor (which I think is called copy editor in the US) for a newspaper.

Well, that's about all I can think of at the moment.

D i s l i k e s

Book: Interview, only one I've read. :P

Character Name: Has to be Lestat, because it's just so...vampiracal.

Movie between IVWAV or QOTD: Aagh, haven't seen either! But I've heard QOTD is quite the crapfest, so I'm guessing it'll be the former.

Anne Rice series: The Vampire Chronicles.

Character: Armand. I don't hate him, but he irritated me. Possibly because he clashed with Claudia.

Hi, I'm Klash, I've read all the VC books, and as soon as I have enough money (I'm a lowly student) I'm going to get the New Tales of the Vampires too. Just thought I'd fill out this little intro thing for you all.

Character in the Chronicles: Lestat or Quinn. I adore them both. Maybe Marius. Maybe all of them


Book: The Tale of the Body Thief, Blackwood Farm.

Character Name: Quinn. It's so....argh! can't think of a good word.

Movie between IVWAV or QOTD: Interview, I love it when Lestat dances with Claudia's mothers corpse, cracks me up every time. Haven't seen QOTD yet, sad to hear it's a disappointment, but I love Stuart Townsend, (LXG, anyone?) so I'll probably love it.

Anne Rice series: The Vampire Chronicles

D i s l i k e s

Character: Gabrielle

Book: Queen of the Damned-too much jumping from different characters.

Scene: When Lestat throws an Egyptian over the fence, before Mrius saves him.

R a n d o m:

Fav color: Burgundy, silver, green.

Fav movie: IwtV, LXG, V for Vendetta

Fav food: Salt popcorn

Just wanted to introduce myself, and pose this question:
Why doesn't Louis appear in the last books? He survived the suicide attempt, and he is so important to Lestat, you'd think he'd turn up, but he's barely mentioned. Any thoughts?

[27 Jun 2006|11:16pm]

I wrote to Anne Rice last week, and she actually wrote me back two different times to let me know she enjoyed my letter and to touch back with me on the different things I wrote her about in the first place.

She was very quick with her responses, too. I thought that strange, but whatever.

Just thought I'd share.

Tear-jerkers. [01 May 2006|07:56pm]

What's one scene, line, or image from the Chronicles that, without fail, brings you to tears every single time you read it?

They can be happy tears or sad tears.

For me, it's the last page and a half of Memnoch. Although I'm not the biggest Lestat fan, his agony at his station in life is depressing. It's also interesting and sad to see him, for once, become pensive and disturbed enough to need to back out of the spotlight, to see him revert to a quieter state. I never truly appreciated Lestat until I considered him not being around anymore. The line "Let me pass now from fiction into legend," breaks me up every time.

Also, Louis' attempted suicide. I remember reading it for the first time on a car trip to visit family, and I started sobbing so ridiculously that my mom thought something was seriously wrong. It still is heartbreaking to read. Louis' another character I didn't much like until I imagined him gone. It was that book, also, that made me fall in love with his beauty. When he and David are hunting congenially together, you see Louis in a new light that makes you smile. At least I did.

As for happy tears, it would be in Queen of the Damned when Marius and Armand meet up again after all that time. It's so touching. -Sighs happily.-
