Intro Post  
FOHC1.png friends only picture by harleycoopz

Harley Cooper was my fanfiction persona. And, although I've enjoyed her company as she helped me through a difficult transition in my life during high school, she still remains a costume and a mask for me to wear. She had also stiffled me emotionally as a person since I constantly use her as a way to escape the real world because I was so fantasy-oriented before that it has made me insecure. She didn't open a lot of doors for me, only small cracks where I stil keep people at arm's length even though being in an online blog is already as distanced as I can get. But I want to change that. And hopefully it'll be for the best.

My real name is Francesca GarchitorenaFull name is Paola Francesca Nelia Grace Flores Garchitorena. I go with the nicknames Frankee, Eka and Chekikay. I'm a Filipina with a Spanish-Malayan heritage. My surname Garchitorena goes way back during the Spanish Era in the Philippines. According to my father, our ancestor is a Spanish priest boarding Ferdinand Magellan's ship. That makes the first generation of my family insulares (Philippine-born Spaniards). My family is originally from the province of Bicol but there's also a province in Camarines Sur named after Don Andres Garchitorena, a very distant relative (waay up in the family tree during the 1900's). I'm an aspiring writer, a freshman at De La Salle University, Cavite, taking up Broadcast Journalism. I am also a member of the literary section of the student publication Heraldo Filipino. I'm a Taurean Enneagram Type 4 born under the Year of the Horse. I'll be turning 20 on the 24th of April. I have a younger brother with autism named Francis Xavier and I fondly call him 'little boy blue'. My mother owns a tutorial center called Power Memory and my father has recently retired from being a medical representative from Bayer Pharmateuticals and now owns a laundromat business. 

It's very nice to meet you all. I joined LiveJournal back in 2006. It's also the same year I started writing fanfics. My public journal harleycooper was for that purpose while this one was supposed to be private and personal. It took me some years to find the courage to write more about very personal stuff and I'm starting to feel really good about myself becase of it. A lot has happened to my life: godless times, discovery of my fickle sexuality, dropping out of college. This year I've finally learned to stop hiding from the real world and so now I try my best to balance the imagined one alongside it. Thank you very much to each and one of you and I hope we get to know each other more because, from now on, writer_craft will have more zap to it. All things that are written here would range from the ordinary to the bizzare and I only ask that my privacy will be respected as much as I respect yours :)

NOTE: I've unlocked some entries that I don't feel are dangerous to reveal to public.

Umm... Harley-sama?
Do you have a place for us to chat? Or could you help me find a place? Thanks! ^___^

You're interesting. Scary at times but I like you! I cant say that I understand your entry but, it's... well... okay! ^o^

And there we shall chat. Ignore this entry. It is for the public

Hello. I saw your post on the Sherlock Holmes community and I wondered if you would mind if I added you? =^_^=
Francesca Garchitorena: me only mewriter_craft on January 26th, 2007 02:34 am (UTC)
I am honored
I never thought someone would notice my post. It was just nothing, I just felt like confessing my love for Sherlock.

Sure, that would be nice!

May I know more about you?

Chaseiwanturskulls on May 16th, 2007 05:22 pm (UTC)
well i don't really know you so i could possibly be negating the "friends only" term
tell me a little about your self, then I'll probably add you!
Francesca Garchitorenawriter_craft on May 17th, 2007 04:44 am (UTC)
Basically I am not actually good at describing myself. I am, uh...pretty much incorrigible and self-destructive but honesty counts so I will tell you how I stumbled upon you. I read your reply on one of the posts in punk revolution community about this girl who says she hates this girl who is trying to be punk but she is the one who is a poser...and I found your opinion quite interesting and very direct and I like that very much because I agree with you. Now, I can't say I'm punk becasue I just don't think I am since I am not really knowledgeable about it but all I know is I have great respect for what punks live for and how they stand up for themselves and that is admirable. I like people who expresses their freedom and personality quirks without a single blemish of hypocrisy. I am kind of that person but although I am not really what you can call punk since I don't listen to the right music or wear the clothes, I am pretty much comfortable of what I am and that is all that counts for me. And you seem to be somebody who is confident for who he is and that is why, I, uh, added you...

or i am just really bored with the same crowd i need to break free

Bonjour Mademoseille Harley Cooper~
To begin with, my name is Chiyo and I'm a fairly recent fan of La Corda D'oro. You must be wondering why the heck I'm here and about to befriend you, honestly your way of writing gives me fictions inspiration again, so in my mind I thought I would like to get acquainted with the author.

I'm not very good at expressing myself (as stated in my application on la corda stamps), but to me you're quite unique and enigmatic which just rises my curiosity.

(And don't worry, I have tons of bi/lesbians friend since I'm one of it before. XD)

That said, I hope you'd consider it to be my friend. :)
Francesca Garchitorena: neko-cutiewriter_craft on June 24th, 2008 04:35 am (UTC)
Well then, hajime mashite. I remember you well. This is my private journal and I will add you back for such honorable affirmation in your part, love. You can also add my public journal harleycooper where I mostly write my updates on fanfiction and discuss my writing ideas.

I saw your review over at 221b_bakerst and found it eloquent and informative. I think it would be interesting to read your journal and I hope you'll add me back. :)
Francesca Garchitorena: i get to be so inexplicable sometimeswriter_craft on January 10th, 2010 06:07 am (UTC)
Thank you for saying that! Okay. Will add you back. I'm a bit catatonic and some of my posts are very, very personal. Just a warning :P

Oh! You watch Death Note and you like yaoi? And Tim Burton as well!~ Okey dokey...but this is my private eljay filled with catatonic, self-loathing, narcissistic, manic depressive entries---so I hope you can put up with that :p

Francesca Garchitorena: too damaged to even carewriter_craft on March 28th, 2010 01:20 pm (UTC)
My darkness has light to it <3

As for my fanfiction eljay, I've written there in the latest entry that I will be quitting fanfiction for good. I'll update my smut fics (new ones and old ones I'm revising), the YYH and POT fics but the other ones: I can't get back to them. But thank you very much for reading them and I hope you liked them.

And sure, I'll add you back although I don't think we have interacted before. Hopefully we can change that :) This eljay is personal and more RL-based.
