Author has written 4 stories for Phantom of the Opera, and Phantom of the Opera.
Hello! Welcome to my profile!
By reading my fanfic name, I'm sure you figured out that my name is Deanna, of course. I also have a youtube account, in which my name is NightDreamer37. I've made a couple of Phan videos, but not many - I'm still new to it. However, I also have a couple of playlists available for others to listen to; they're the sound tracks to my Drowning Phan-Phic's.
I also have a face book page for my stories. The page is called, "Drowning Series", listed under "book series". I would love to give a link, but fanfic blocks links. To make it easier to find, just keep in mind that the main icon for the page is the Cheshire Cat.
Favorite colors: I really like jewel-tones. I'm partial to violet, cobalt, and scarlet.
Fav animal: Cats. Don't hate on me, dog people. There's nothing wrong with cats, and if you honestly think that they're soulless, vicious things that do nothing but claw you, then you obviously didn't own a real friendly cat while growing up.
Favorite food: Chocolate. I'm pretty sure that I'm a chocoholic.
Favorite tv shows: I'm not entirely sure right now. To be honest, I don't watch much TV like how I used to. I used to love the Walking Dead until my favorite character died.
Favorite movies: I love the Phantom of the Opera (Team Erik)! I used to be a huge Twilight fan (Team Edward), but I'm not as much. I still have respect for it though, partially because Twilight was got me into literature. I also like The Avengers, I really like Captain America and Thor (they are my fav's in the avengers). Dracula Untold was a pretty cool movie, too.
How about favorite games: If you're talking about card games, then I love Skipbo, and that's pretty much it. As for video games, I like playing Call of Duty zombies (preferably the Nazi zombie's version). Before that, I was addicted to playing Sonic the Hedgehog games.
Favorite story genre: Romance; I won't read a story unless if it has romance. . .As well as movies.
Favorite place: Disneyland! If you haven't been there, you need to go there right away. And if you think that it's for little kids, then I don't think we'd get along real well.
Pet Peeves of mine:
When people have anger issues and say that they "can't help it". Seriously, people? If you truly have an issue, then go get some medication for that. Don't just use it as an excuse to be a jerk.
I hate drama-queens, especially when they say things like: "Ooh, I hate my life! I wish I would just die!"
Me: Really?. . .REALLY? Well, I'm sure that Erik could easily solve that for you.
I really don't like it when people have anger issues, but then I wonder to myself: Why am I team Erik then? Does not compute!
Phantom of the Opera music (My fav is Music of the Night)

Storytime by Nightwish
The End of Heartache by Killswitch Engage
Video game/ and movie soundtracks
And many more!!! :P
I know this is random, but if I had a theme song, it would be Words by Missing Persons. Why? Because people never hear me. . .Or they just flat out never listen. Yeeeeaaaaaah, but I'm kind of used to it.
Some POTO opinions and rants:
I'm definitely team Erik. . .My parent's don't see the appeal. It's not because of his deformity (2004's version was a sunburn compared to the novel, but I still love both!) but because Erik has killed people. I see where they're coming from, but I tell them that they need to know Erik's back story in order to understand. Yes, he shouldn't have killed people, but his past was nasty to him, and you almost can't blame him for the things he did. His past messed him up. His life was screwed up from the start, so of course he would have a messed up adult life! His mother was neglectful and or abusive (depending on which version) and the world didn't treat him any different. I'd be pretty pissed too, if I were him.
Personally, I think if people treated him like a normal person, even with a deformity, he would be a normal person with a normal life, and not a crazy drug addict who lives underground and stalks the one girl who he has a chance with. . .Even though he's obsessive, he is a softy underneath it all. . .Ya know, when a certain fop isn't getting in the way of his plans. But hey, he's not much different than Edward Cullen!
Just bear with me for a moment here! Aside from their over all appearances, they're very similar. Not that Stephenie Meyer was a POTO Phan (LOL, as far as I know), but just think of the similarities for a moment. First off, both Erik and Edward hate themselves. They're loners, and are very brooding. They also hate, hate, hate, HATE their competition. They both think they're monsters. Both have killed people. They're both very smart. They're both musicians. They both have cold white skin (Depending on which POTO version you're talking about). They're both little stalkers for their curly/wavy dark haired love interest (Unless if you're thinking about blonde Christine). Both of their love interests are trapped in a love triangle and can't make up their minds. Both Erik and Edward have gold/yellow eyes. Both like to either hum or sing which causes their love interest to swoon. Both Erik and Edward are extremely controlling and determined and possessive, though at the same time, their love interest thinks of them as an angel. Hell, they even have impressive fancy-shmansy homes. Edward has lived in many different homes, while Erik stays in one place, though they've both traveled around quite a bit. And yeah, sure, Erik lives underground while Edward lives in a nice house, but Erik still lives in a pimped out lair. You know it. It's true.
Difference between them? Edward is supposed to be completely gorgeous while Erik is supposed to be utterly repulsive. Edward gets a happy ending and Erik doesn't. But they're both more similar than different, and you know I have a point!. . .Although, Edward Cullen was based off of Mr. Darcy. . .Does that mean that Erik and Darcy are similar. . ? Eh, no, probably not as much. . .
Anyways as you can probably tell, one of my favorite Phantoms is Gerard Butler, and I'm not afraid to admit that. Just because I prefer the 2004 version over the Michael Crawford version doesn't make me any less of a Phan than others. Come on, guys, really? Can't we all get along? There's no need to act snobby and proud that you don't like Gerik. If you sincerely don't care about Gerik, but don't mind if others appreciate that version, then I respect that. It's different to be a jerk to others about it, though.
But to you 2004 POTO haters, let me tell ya, I'm not one of those Phans who merely squeal that the Phantom should've gotten together with Christine because "he was hotter than Raoul, and his sunburn was nothing". No, after becoming very intrigued and yearning to learn more about "the Phantom's" back story, I began doing more research (like what all obsessive Phans do), and discovered that it was originally a novel. And I had to have it. So after reading an innumerable amount of Phanphics, watching many different POTO adaptions, and reading both Susan Kay's and then Gaston's original POTO, I think I have the right to consider myself a Phan. I've accepted that most POTO adaptions aren't perfect, and learned to embrace that.
Although, if I had to pick my favorite POTO film adaption, I still think it's the 2004 version. It still over all follows the original storyline well; yes, even if Gerik is pretty. But if that's what makes 2004 POTO haters hate it, then let me tell ya, Michael Crawford was too pretty for the roll as well, when you think about it. Erik is supposed to look like a freaking corpse. Erik over all having only a half mask is already making him far more pretty than he's supposed to be. I understand that for the broadway musical, they needed a half mask so the audience could see the Phantom's expressions, and so the Phantom actors could preform and what-not. But don't give the 2004 movie hell for Gerik being too pretty when it all started with Michael Crawford. So chew on that for a while.
Thanks to the 2004 version, many more people have been introduced to POTO; like me! So still think that I'm a "amateur Phan" for liking Gerik? Get over yourself.
Well, enough of the rants. Feel free to either observe my stories, or my favorites!
