Author has written 5 stories for Phantom of the Opera.

Hi there!

I'm Restless And Tempted, and should you find yourself visiting this page and reading this, I would like to welcome you most sincerely, and hope that you'll read and enjoy the stories I upload!

I've just started on my first multi-chapter phic 'When The Candle Flickered Out' (which makes me excited and just a little scared too!) so I'd really appreciate it if you give it a read and let me know what you think. Chapter 18 is finally, finally up and Chapter 19 will be on its way a.s.a.p, (I really am typing away every spare minute I get!) so again rest assured I will not leave my readers hanging. Update: Ok I know it has been a ridiculous amount of time since I updated and there are a number of reasons and excuses for this but I really have to apologise for the wait! If there is anyone left reading the story I hope to get back to it this summer when I will hopefully have the time to give it the attention it deserves from me.

As well as that I have a few one-shots up (namely, 'Waiting', 'Papa', 'Necessary Madness' and 'The Angel Sees, The Angel Knows') since every now and then inspiration (or randomness) strikes and so a one-shot is born as I have to get them out of my system. I hope you'll enjoy them also and let me know what you think of them. (",)

As you may guess I am addicted to Phantom of the Opera in the many of its various forms that I know of. More often than not I am drawn to Erik & Christine pairings, but by no means does this mean that I am completely opposed to other pairings. Also, though I don't much care for him, I do not think of Raoul as a villain and so will not write him as such. I also enjoy fusing things from the books, musical, and even the film, together in my Phantom stories as best I can. Hope you guys enjoy them!

If you have any questions about my stories and that, you can just PM me and I'll get back to you as soon as I can.

I can't think of much else to say for the moment, so I'll finsh off by listing a few of my favourite books etc. and thank you once again for stopping by! (",)

Favorite Movies: The Phantom of the Opera, Labyrinth, (500) Days of Summer, 300, P.S I Love You, Star Trek, Twilight, Penelope, Casper, Sweeney Todd, Moulin Rouge, Once, Pride & Prejudice, Final Fantasy VII Advent Children, V For Vendetta, Serenity, The Illusionist, Batman Begins & The Dark Knight, Guys and Dolls, Elizabeth: The Golden Age, Superman Returns, Corpse Bride, Interview with the Vampire, Dracula 2000 (& Many...Okay All Other Gerard Butler Films), Anchorman, Beauty & The Beast (& Other Disney Classics), Enchanted, that list goes on for a while too...

Favourite Bands/Singers: David Bowie, Muse, Judy Garland, Tori Amos, Fiona Apple, Evanescence, Florence The Machine, Cecilia Bartoli, Josh Groban, Katie Melua, Mumford and Sons, Laura Marling, Damien Rice, Ben Moody, The Distillers, Taking Back Sunday, Fightstar, Nine Inch Nails, Maria Callas, Lacuna Coil, A Fine Frenzy, Kate Havnevik, Katherine Jenkins, another long list that I'm going to leave at that!

Favourite T.V Shows: North And South, Sherlock, Supernatural (Oh Castiel how I adore thee!) Vampire Diaries (I absolutely adore Paul Wesley aka Stefan Salvatore), Ghost Whisperer (Jim & Mel Forever), Grey's Anatomy, Castle, Heroes, Lost, Angel, Buffy the Vampire Slayer (Buffy & Angel always), Bones, Firefly, Ringer, Futurama, Two Guys, a Girl And A Pizza Place, Doctor Who (with the effervescent David Tennant), Robin Hood (Gotta Love Guy of Gisborne! G/M all the way!)Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles (Why, oh why did they cancel it? Have they no sense!).

Favorite Song(s) of the Moment: 'Leave My Body' by Florence The Machine, Simply gorgeous!

Also, take a moment if you will to mourn the lose of the brilliant & beautiful 10th Doctor as played by the amazing David Tennant in the series Doctor Who. That final episode broke my heart! David Tennant you were my Doctor and you were phenomenal! I didn't want you to go either! You'll always be missed!

And that's that for now!

Oh, and I don't know if this is necessary or not but here goes, just in case...

Disclaimer: Yep, it's the usual disclaimer. I only own original characters & the like, etc. etc. I do not own the characters of The Phantom of the Opera, but one can dream, right? (",)
