eh, i guess i'll tell you all a little bit about me now.
Well, I'm 17.I have a slit between My legs called a cunt. I live, and have grown up in The City of Devils.
Started reading at a young age, and fell in love with FLB.
I love the way she portrays Los angeles. Its beautiful. and so far, violet and claire is my favorite book because i can totally relate to both charactors.
I am like claire in that i love poetry, and faeries, I can be quiet at times, and i am very scared of growing old and fat and bleeding.
Violet: I have wanted to be a film maker since i could talk. I am outgoing most of the time, i am some what of a loner, and i'm always lost in my head.And, i also had a little 4 year episod3e where i cut myself, and i was pretty vile. :)~
hmm.. i dont know what else to say.
if you people wanna talk or something feel free to IM me.
AIM: WackoGezus, or AshTrayGrl

12:01AM - SLAM
i went to a poetry slam tonite, and i read two short poems:
Memories of us
pass through me
like a summer breeze
through my hair
you were my
you were what broke
a standard, humid day
and gave relief from
a burning sun
bringing a summer breeze
like your arms did
then raining down
a million drops
crying out in the distance
what might have been
::takes a bow::
made me feel very claire-ish

12:17PM - Hello all.
I am new to this community and would like to extend a big hello to everyone here.
Violet and Claire is one of my favorite books of all time. Francesca Lia Block is one of the most, if not the most, talented writers i've ever read.
So now i'm here, spreading my love of her writing.
Anyone want to add me as a friend? I'll add you back.
I have a new livejournal because my old one was too personal and people starting taking it to thier petty extremes.
Anyway... I had to delete that journal and would like my list of friends to go back to it's large size.
So if you would like, please, add me.

8:51PM - hi
hey, i'm new. i'm amber - 19/f from PA, but i go to school in NJ.
i read violet & claire over winter break last year. i also read Sloppy Firsts by Megan McCafferty (which i love so much i created an lj community for it - sloppyfirsts) and Brave New Girl (i borrowed it from a friend, so i cant remember the author, but i know its an Mtv book). i absolutely loved Violet & Claire too, but i didn't have to make a community for that one, since there's this one and i've seen a francesca lia block community around here somewhere too.. though i havent joined because i've only read this one book (so far).
anyways, i identified wholly with each character, but i'm more like claire.

i'm sactioned myself into the one room where i can find privacy, even if it is behind easter yellow curtains. the hot water pounds down on my shoulders, turning them a hot, fleshy pink. in one hand silver gleams. crystal water droplets sparkle. they should be milky red.
i repeat in my head the line that i've read over and over again.
press a little harder/go a little deeper
below the surface is a deranged, backwards 'E.' maybe it won't be so hard if i look away. i turn my head. i feel the edge, but the pain doesn't come. i look back to the barely-there pink line that lies to the right of my E now. i concentrate and press harder. again and again, over and over. i only succeed to indentions before my wrist throbs with fear and the thoughts race into my mind.
what are you doing?
this isn't going to help a thing.
my heart beats faster. i let go of the black handle and dissolve away under the steaming shower head, remembering that i'm not vile violet...i'm tinker claire.
and suddenly, i'm right back where i belong.

5:03PM - new claire
well...it seems my dear friend violet has added an entry, so i thought i might as well to. :)
gilthoniel and i are complete photo-negatives of each other...well, as cloes as we can be when we live so far apart. she introduced me to the loverly miss block. the first book i ever read was v&c, then iwatf. i loved both and ventured on into the rest of flb's world...but those first two books still stand as my favorites.
i love being a claire. don't know what else to say...i miss my violet and wish we could sort out our messes.

8:34PM - Newbie.
I first read I Was A Teenage Fairy and though I really liked the book...it wasn't something I hugely related to. Violet and Claire on the other hand, drew me in completely, especially after I met my own photonegative other half (starfrost). We're not exactly like Violet and Claire, but I'm still the dark, she's still the light. I'm also a lot like Witchbaby who is kind of like Violet. Or at least that's what she tells me -laughs- I kind of miss her right now because we're both complete messes and kind of...wrapped up in our own little problems...like the almost-end of the book but not quite as extreme...-sigh-

hello! ive just joined this community. im kind of new to the whole live journal thing- but adore it all the same.
i fell in love with violet and claire and i read it every few months- because i cant get enough of it- it is the ultimate. i do think tho- that everyone is both violet and claire- and that they are just halves of each other- which was made pretty clear in the book anyways. but i just thought id intro myself. and say hi!

uhm ... hi? yeah, i just joined this community. my name is harmony. my website is http://fadedstars.com. ive been reading francesca lia blocks novels since ... sometime last summer, i think. my friend started talking about girl goddess #9 and i decided i just had to read it. so i did. and then i got hooked. she has the most beautiful style of writing. i think violet and claire is my favorite but really, its hard to decide. id love to read primavera and ecstasia but i cant seem to find them anywhere. anyway ... later :)

3:55PM - two halves of a whole
I was so excited to find this community, no one I know has read Violet&Claire or even heard of it. It's such an awesome book but when people ask me to explain what it's about...I just can't. It's just fantastic, Francesca Lia Block is a beautiful writer.
If you were a Francesca Lia Block book, which one would you be? take the quiz here!
im so in love with violet and claire that i think i'll have to steal it from the library...
