Author has written 16 stories for Phantom of the Opera, Les Miserables, and Hunchback of Notre Dame.

January 10, 2015

Voice of an Angel is *finally* finished! For real, this time. I won't delete it and re-write it again. Promise. O_o

I'll begin posting my next story soon! Be on the lookout!

An Explanation

The School Monster is dominating me right now, so updates are few and far between. So, if I take a few weeks to update a story, it is NOT because I have abandoned it. This simply means I'm taking a break. If I'm lacking inspiration, I can't write, and if I try, then the result is stale writing. Thus, it seems much better to wait a little while and produce something good than to force myself to write and produce something that nobody wants to read.

Ever since I can remember, I have surrounded myself with books. I was the little girl at the library who had to ask the librarians for book suggestions because I had read most of the junior-fiction section. I decided at a young age that I want to give back to the world of literature because it gave so much to me. I started writing poetry, but that didn't work out, so I don't write it anymore. Now, I write whenever I have a few spare minutes and never fail to carry both pen and paper with me.

I now have a Pinterest account especially for my fanfics. I'm listed under broadwaygirl818. Check it out!

I also have a figment account. The link is posted below. I'd love for y'all to check out my stories that are non-fanfiction and tell me what you think.

My Stories

One-shots: Mostly for my own greedy pleasure.

The Point of No Return: Based on the 2004 film. Cliche rewrite of the ending? Perhaps. Satisfying to write? Very.

OCD: The product of classroom boredom. It's far more silly than my usual style and nothing I planned to write. Ironically, it's probably my most popular story.

The Ugly Truth: A further product of classroom boredom, written the day after OCD. If OCD were Dr. Jekyll, this story would be Mr. Hyde.

Right: What if Erik decided that it wasn't right for Christine to be his living bride? This was one of those little stories that was just begging to be written, so I finally got it out on paper.

Voice of an Angel: A modern-day retelling of Leroux's novel. This is my first long Phanfic. I love this story will all of my heart despite its flaws... and the hours I've spent adding chapters and rewriting the ones that were deleted off my computer.

Cleaning This Lasso: Erik the Suitor was jealous and over-protective; Erik the Father is even more so.

I Dreamed a Dream: This is my second Les Miserables fanfic. After the world makes her an outcast and destroying her dreams, Fantine defies the world and sells everything, including her body (it's rated "T" for themes only). Yet, when all seems lost, she'll learn that one of her dreams will not vanish.

Miracle on the Rue Scribe: Our beloved Erik is a regular old scrooge.

Allergies: The answer to the question that has been bugging people for decades: what if Christine was allergic to Ayeesha? Kay-based.

Alone in the Shadows: Christine seeks approval from her father but always falls short of his expectations. Then, Erik enters her life and gives her more attention than she ever desired. Novel length, modern day. Dark and romantic. Musical/Kay based.

In Dreams, He Came: Christine Daae has always had an incredible imagination. But, when a masked figure starts visiting her in her sleep, reality and dreams become hopelessly intertwined. Eventually, she will have to choose between the real world and the world in her dreams. Dark Erik, possessive Raoul, and angst-filled romance galore. Based on ALW's stage production. Even I am surprise and weirded out by this once sometimes, but I love it with a passion.

Coming Soon (or eventually)

The Eye of the Beholder: Christine Daae isn't pretty, wealthy, or popular. All she wants is to be normal. When offered the chance to receive voice lessons, she seizes the chance, hoping that her new-found talent will finally gain her recognition. Yet, her music teacher has a horrible secret, and it will force her to rethink everything she has believed about beauty... and love.

These are a few of my favorite things...

Music. Chocolate. Books. Rain. Cats. Hot tea. Traveling. Netflix. The ocean. Jesus.
