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!
