Author has written 10 stories for Labyrinth, Phantom of the Opera, Kuroshitsuji, and Kingdom Hearts.
Name: Althea Rose King (I did have my real name listed - just my first name - but I go by this a lot more - everyone but my family calls me this and only because they don't know I prefer it - so I'd rather just be called Althea - Thea for short, but don't assume. I'll let you know if you can call me Thea.)

Interests: Anything David Bowie, Kingdom Hearts (mainly Sora and Axel but getting into Roxas), RP (roleplay), Phantom of the Opera (mostly the 2004 ALW film with Gerard Butler and Emmy Rossum though I do like the 25th anniversary stage performance at Royal Albert Hall with Ramin Karimloo and Sierra Boggess), Black Butler (or listed on FF as Kuroshitsuji), Vampire Knight (sort of e.e), Avengers (for Tony and Loki mostly).
I love Labyrinth. Especially the Goblin King. I love stories when he has a daughter. She's always daddy's little girl and that is just so cute! Jareth being intimidating by nature then being reduced to a pile of fluff by his daughter is always so adorable! I first heard of the film when I watched it a few years ago with my mom and sister. I will read JarethxSarah and JarethxToby. I have only found one series with that pairing - "Bond of Sun and Moon" by Ripper101. I highly recommend reading it w - but I would love to find more.
I also love Kingdom Hearts. I got into this when I met Meghan through roleplay. She has a Sora so I started looking up the game (not that her Sora is played like the game 'cause he's not - she's altered him a bit) and decided I loved Sora (So cute! w) and Axel (So hot! =3) best. I can't stand Kairi and Riku and the ONLY pairings of this fandom I will read is AxelxSora, and SoraxRoxas - not yet gotten into AxelxRoxas.
As for Phantom of the Opera, I first heard of it when I was in 8th grade. In Music class in middle school, the teacher always had a musical to watch at some point in the year. I didn't like the movies from sixth and seventh grad. But eighth grade was Phantom of the Opera - the 2004 Gerard ButlerxEmmy Rossum film. Oh, my God, I LOVED it! A few kids in my class had already seen it (keep in mind I was in eight grade a few years after the film had come out already) and they got so excited! They'd stand and belt out "Insolent boy, this slave of fashion!" and I'd crack up! XD But I thought I was going to hate it because of the "Phantom" in the title. I had never heard of the book before and I assumed it was a ghost story/musical (had to be musical for the music teacher to show - school rules) and when I saw it was a love story, loved it! I found myself wanting to cry during the scene on the rooftop when he had the rose to his face and crying and then when he yelled out his warning - "You will curse the day... all that the Phantom asked of you!" - and I was trying so hard not to cry like I wanted because the class would see me. ; Since then, I have seen a few other versions and later in the school year, I found the book and read that, too, and I now have it on my Kindle to reread whenever I'd like. The book makes me cry as well, too. The line "Erik is dead" especially. For this fandom, I will read ErikxChristine (unlike Labyrinth, I don't hate the female of the pairing) and will even try ErikxRaoul (even though Raoul's not my favorite of the tree. I tolerate him). Even though he is unnamed in the 2004 film version - the one I use when I write for the fandom - I'll always call him Erik like the book. I'll always give him the last name Destler from the 1989 Robert Englund version (not one of my favorites since it's gory, but I do like it).
One night, I was randomly looking on Netflix to find something to watch and a friend suggested Black Butler since she loves it. I found it on YT and another site that has ALL the English dubbed episodes and after I tried it, oh, my God! I LOVE IT! =D I love SebastianxCiel as ServantxMaster but I so ship them as a COUPLE 'cause they're SO CUTE! =3 I KINDA like ClaudexAlois in the second category 'cause even though Alois is a brat, he's just lonely and he loves Claude and I wish Claude hadn't killed him. ='( That pairing isn't my main BB pairing though. That'll always be SebbyxCiel. =3
My friend and girlfriend (well, not so much the friend anymore) love Vampire Knight so I gave that a try. I only watched the first season and a few of the second (or the new title Vampire Knight: Guilty) then decided I didn't like where it was going. e.e But I did skip ahead to Ichiru's death because my girlfriend said it made her cry and she made her Sora have twins named Zero and Ichiru so I had to see that and I bawled like a baby! DX I kept thinking of the cute little baby Ichiru she RPs and I just... I died! D,X Needless to say, the only pairing I'll read is ZeroxIchiru.
I don't remember how, but a little bit ago, I got into Avengers-themed fics - mostly for Loki (I am in LOVE with Loki!) and then started to like TonyxLoki fics and then I WATCHED the movie and I LOVE Tony! His attitude is just so... ASDFGHJKL! So I'm into TonyxLoki now and I even watched Thor for Loki and wan to see Thor 2.
I've always loved to write, but have never been good at it. I've finally decided I was good enough to share with people, but constructive criticism can always make me greater at something I love to do.
Please PM me whenever for anything you wish and feel free to review as much as you want. I will always respond in a timely manner. I try my best to answer reviews and PM messages as soon as I can. So far, that's been within the same day or within the next couple of days. Also, if you happen to see a story in my Upcoming section that I have not given a title and you happen to think of one from the description I've written, please, go ahead and PM me your suggestion. =) I am horrible at titles so any help is much appreciated.
I do not put disclaimers in my stories. This FANfiction - we all know none of us own anything we write for except our own made-up characters.

A NOTE TO ALL WHO WRITE LABYRINTH FANFICTION: I am getting very tired of finding people who write that Jareth's eyes are mismatched with two different colors. One of these colors is always blue (at least that is correct as David's eyes ARE blue), but the other is always brown or green. I've even found other combinations like brown and black or green and grey. His eyes ARE mismatched, but the left is permanently dilated so it just LOOKS like a different color. I don't know if authors are purposely saying they are different colors just for their own flair or what. I just needed it to be out there as it bothers me when people get anything wrong about ANYTHING about David Bowie. I sort of have an OCD tendency to fix these things or just make sure people know the truth about him. Whenever I write "mismatched" in my stories, I am referring to the one-dilated-pupil kind of mismatched. I will even say something to effect of "one was dilated, appearing a different color than the other," but not always.
And Hoggle doesn't talk like he's got a funny accent! His speech is fine in the movie, only adding an s to some words that don't need them. Like when Jareth threatens him and gives him the peach, he first asks where Hoggle's going and Hoggle says he lost Sarah and "just hears her now." Again, I don't know if people are only giving Hoggle funny accents to put their own spin on the stories, but it gets very difficult to put together what is trying to be said when the accent is written very thick and awkward.
And whenever the ending of the movie is included, somehow Jareth's line "I am exhausted from living up to your expectations of me." is shortened to exclude the last two words. This I understand. David whispers the words so it IS hard to tell he said them. Just know the correct line is "I am exhausted from living up to your expectations of me." Another line of his that authors tend to mess up is after Sarah says, "Give me the child." Jareth says, "Sarah, beware. I have been generous up 'til now, but I can be cruel." The 'til is actually until. He does pronounce the un. It is "Sarah, beware. I have been generous up until now, but I can be cruel."
I love it when people put in the songs from the movie - have Jareth sing them - but I've noticed an issue with the song he sang to Toby as Sarah ran the Labyrinth. The song is called "Magic Dance" and is continually called "Dance Magic Dance" as if the author couldn't make up their minds as to if it were "Dance Magic" or "Magic Dance." I can understand the confusion as I've seen it listed as both in many different places and in an interview, David Bowie called it "Dance Magic." However, it's listed as "Magic Dance" on the soundtrack.
