Author has written 8 stories for Phantom of the Opera.

I am a huge fan of "The Phantom of the Opera" and love most versions, particularly the Andrew Lloyd Webber musical and the original novel by Gaston Leroux.

My fanfiction is mainly inspired by the two versions mentioned above, but I also enjoy including references to other versions, such as Susan Kay's novel "Phantom" and the various film adaptations.

My stories:

The Price of Fame: A humorous fic, and my personal favourite. Rated PG for language and severe doughnut obsession. Now complete. Thank you for reading!

A Phantom's Story: A retelling of the story of Erik's life. Thank you to all my readers who keep leaving me lovely reviews. I'm not sure whether I'll ever finish this story, but I'll have to wait and see. I hope everyone enjoys the existing chapters!

Erik's Diary: A humorous story which currently has only two chapters. I may write more eventually, though. Have you ever wondered what the Phantom's New Year's resolutions would be? Find out here!

The Locket: A two-part story. Leroux inspired, using an idea from 'The Price of Fame,' but still a serious fic (if that makes sense...). Now complete. Thank you to all my readers and reviewers!

Chocolate Pudding: My entry for the first phantomfans(dot)net Humor Contest. It came second! Complete one-shot. Thank you to all my readers and reviewers!

The Peculiar Adventure of Firmin Richard: Another humorous story which was written for a Mythology and Folklore Writing Challenge on phansonline(dot)net. It was inspired by the Greek legend of Theseus and the Minotaur, and is Leroux-based with some references to other versions. It's a complete one-shot. Many thanks to those who read and reviewed.

16th June, 2007: I have changed the ratings for most of my stories, which were previously rated K or K, to T ratings. After reading the ratings guide again, it occurred to me that I may have originally rated my stories incorrectly. I just wanted to reassure readers that the content of my stories has not changed.

I hope you enjoy my stories, and thanks for reading!

Best wishes,

Opera Cloak
