So here it is! That song I was talking about in one of my stories. Everybody should listen to this! It's so inspiring! So go to Youtube and type in "Paul Collier". It should be the first song. The background is of a sun rising over what looks like to be maybe the moon since the Earth is in the corner. Listen and enjoy! And I highly suggest you read "Aw0ldude"'s comment. That inspired me so much! This video is worth your time, trust me!

A Treacherous Viper by La Sorelli reviews
One shot. The unmasking scene, a la Leroux mostly. Rather violent, creepy and morbid. A bit of extreme blood-letting; I'm a very twisted being. With a few perhaps Webber-ish or Kay-ish twists. Review please.

Back to the Beginning- Revised reviews
This is the re-edited, almost re-written tale of Back to the Beginning, as I found the original atrocious. For you newbies, Erik has just left the burning opera house with the intent of giving himself up. But to whom? This story is E/C, though I am not necessarily a Raoul-hater. Unless that is any incentive for you to read it, in which case, I despise Raoul. Please read! New twists

Treachery of One to Another
This is my poem from Cask of Amontillado. I did not quite know where else to place this, so here will have to suffice. Fortunato sits in his tomb and contemplates what has just happened, as well as how he believes Montresor should be brought to justice. I assure you, the fate of Montresor is not pretty... Nor will it be particularly "hell"coming (welcoming). T because I'm twisted.

The Life and Future of a Tortured Man reviews
This is my collection of Phantom one-shots! Some will be humorous while others will be angsty while still others will be romantic. I will specify in the chapter title which category it is. This will be updated when I have time. All Leroux/Kay; mostly E/C, but I could throw a couple other characters. Rated T because some ideas such as suicide are too mature for young ages.
