Author has written 2 stories for Phantom of the Opera.

UPDATE: I have had an incredibly busy and stressful couple of years. Beyond what I could have ever imagined. But during all that, it's been buzzing in the back of my head that I had a story I wanted to finish, so by god I'm going to do it. In other words, I haven't officially abandoned "The Better Man". I really do intend to finish it, so for any who have waited around for so dang long, I promise you that you'll be rewarded...eventually!

I finished writing my first fanfic! It feels great to have something completed. After a busted computer and several abandoned attempts at various stories, I'm finally concentrating all my efforts on a new story that I have finally begun posting! This story...I don't know. Will you love it? Will you hate it? We'll just have to wait and see. One thing is for sure, I would not be getting anywhere with it if it weren't for the lovely Nade-Naberrie, who has been invaluable in helping develop this idea! Merci beaucoup.

I've loved the story of the Phantom of the Opera since I was 12 (I think that's a magic age for it), and am finally making the transition from stories in my head to stories on paper.

Although I started with ALW's Phantom (stage), I'm now torn among many different versions, and I'm not sure I could pick a favorite anymore. But when I write, I will most likely stick closer to Leroux/Kay, at least in terms of the deformity. (Please note that I said "most likely".) While I enjoy, for obvious reasons, a Phantom with a 1/2 - 3/4 handsome face, I don't know that it always makes for most satisfying romance for me. And also? All my stories will be E/C, as it should be. :) (Please note that I might be lying here. :S )

I love a lot of other stories, too, and one day maybe I'll write in some other universes.

I'm a fairly picky reader, but when I find something I find something I like, I'm in heaven. I think fanfiction is so much fun, and I love the creative takes on well-worn stories that some truly talented authors have come up with. Getting story alerts always makes my day.

I always try to review stories that I've enjoyed, but sometimes I feel like I need a little time to digest a story or a chapter before I know what to say, only to get distracted and forget all about it. To those who I've done that to, I apologize, even if you or I don't know who you are!

I love to talk Phantom or get quality fic recs, so feel free to send me a message if you ever want to chat!

Old enough to know better, too young to care!

Cold Ashes by gotta-rite reviews
In the dead of night, twisted thoughts become reality and intolerable fears give birth to perverted hope. Pity is not love, nor is regret, but sometimes it can be difficult to tell the difference…

Love Never Dies Vignettes by endocranium reviews
Some one-shots that popped into my head the first time I heard the soundtrack. Nothing AU, just moments I thought needed more explanation or description. I'm against a Phantom sequel, but some scenes were just too good to pass up. Each stands alone.
