Author has written 4 stories for Harry Potter, Phantom of the Opera, and Naruto.

Greetings...

I am a young enough university student who loves reading fanfic (it's what keeps me sane every day). I am interested in many things, and fancies myself a musician. Though I'm not professional (I neither have the guts, talent, nor the money to do that), I do appreciate many forms of music. I would love to go to musicals, but being on a student budget, I won't be able to go to a lot. I fell in love with Phantom of the Opera at a rather young age and have been in love ever since - the idea of people bursting out into song in the middle of a sentence somehow seemed quite normal to me. The songs in POTO were very captivating and I've nearly got them all memorized:D I am a fan of classical music, and also jazz. Beethoven is my muse, Josh Groban makes me cry, Il Divo makes me sigh, and Chris Botti soothes me every night.

Along with POTO, Labyrinth has also been a favourite of mine. I was first introduced to Labyrinth when I was in grade 5, and our teacher played it for us. Again, what caught me were the songs and the plot. I didn't care as much for the acting as I did the songs... and thus my introduction to the world of David Bowie...

If you take a look at my favourite stories, you will find a collection of stories that are angst-ridden, yet have a happy ending. I am a SUCKER for happy endings, and angst. I LIVE for angst. I don't write good angst, but I love reading it.

That is also why Point of No Return is my favourite song of all time.

Passion is a must, I feel, in life. Passion + true love + angst.

Now Naruto was introduced to me by a close friend of mine. Kakashi's my favourite pile of angst in the story (no, Sasuke is not... though he's also another pile of angst, he isn't mature enough to attract me)... Shikamaru's fast becoming a favourite of mine - a friend of mine actually acts like him. It amuses me to no end :). In myself, I see bits of Sakura and Ino... hehe... I'm kind of a crazy person... but no, I won't be fighting for Sasuke anytime soon...

This is only a little bit of my life, and hopefully you can see aspects of me through my stories...

I commend you for reading this far! I really do! My life isn't all that amazing, you know...

Until later
~RD
