Author has written 14 stories for Wicked.
Hi everyone :D
First things first... In case my English appears weird at times, do forgive me - I'm German and I'm sure my English could be far better than it is. Don't hesitate to correct me please ;)
Second... I was formerly known as "musicalvampirelove" here, but seeing as I never wrote anything about vampires it wasn't exactly a fitting username. It's just that the first musical I've been to was "Tanz der Vampire" and I was sooo addicted to it... still am, actually, but Wicked is sort of a higher priority by now. But if you're interested, you should look up Steve Barton as "Graf von Krolock"... may he rest in peace :'(
What else is there to say about me?
...I'm addicted to musicals in general (the only musical I don't like so far is "Starlight Express") and Wicked in special.
...I might have an even worse case of the Reading Sulks than Elphaba has (you have to read the book to completely understand what I mean ;). It's just that I read novels and the like, not the scientific stuff she prefers.
...I'm 19 years old and have officially finished my school education on June 29th 2012. Yay for that! :D (Afterwards I've been doing a year of "Bundesfreiwilligendienst", no idea how to say it in English, sorry.)
...I passed my finals no matter what my parents said when they kept telling me to stop listening to Defying Gravity and start studying instead. Pfaah.
...I dream about being an actress one day. I'd like to be a musical singer even more, but unfortunately me singing is torture to everybody who has to listen, so I won't even start.
At first I didn't even plan on posting anything here, being unsure of my grammar and all that, but then I started a fanfiction on the back of one of my English exams, and well - here I am ;) I guess my German stories are better, though. Oh, and longer, too. So, if you're interested... here is my profile on fanfiktion.de http://www.fanfiktion.de/u/wickedwitchofthewest
That's me in the picture, yeah ;) And the picture I have on top of my profile here is me, too :P I know in both it's not exactly the right shade of green, but so what. It's fun. I can only recommend trying it.
Oh, something important, by the way. The most important musical-connected thing I ever did... I've been to the Netherlands on a weekend trip with a crazy old caravan just to see Willemijn Verkaik play Elphaba in Wicked. Wait, no, not play... BE. She so IS Elphaba. If you don't know her, look her up. She has the most amazing voice in the world. (Aside of someone who should know I mean her, don't you, my sweet? ;) Even if you don't like musicals... LOOK HER UP!!! She sings in German, Dutch and English, I'm sure there's at least one language you speak xD
Crazy thing is... she got the green off in less then half an hour. I needed more than THREE HOURS and was still green in the ears and stuff! How did she DO that?!
And now, of course, she's in London since fall... Oh my Oz, Isaw her there as well!! Together with ColorInside, my very own G(a)linda/Elphaba (the who's who changes every day ;) and she was Elphaba speaking a language I actually understand! It was... amazifying. Even better than in Holland. And Savannah Stevenson is a wonderful Glinda. And I'm so in love with it all. Oh my.
That's it now, I wont bother you with any more blah blah blah from me. Write me a message if you have questions for a crazy girl...
And - in case you need any more proof how much of a freak I actually am xD - here some quotes from my favorite musicals. Some of them are in German... well, most of them, actually, because Wicked, Cats, and The Phantom of the Opera are the only musicals I know in English; sorry for that. Oh, and there's Jesus Christ Superstar, but I didn't find such great quotes in there.
"When the dawn comes tonight will be a memory too
And the new day will begin..."
"So spiel ich die Starke und tu, was ich tu - als wär dieses Leben mehr als
Täuschung... Irrtum... Betrug. Als wäre nichts, nichts, gar nichts genug..."
Tanz der Vampire...
"Was ich rette, geht zugrund, was ich segne, muss verderben,
Nur mein Gift macht dich gesund, um zu leben, musst du sterben..."
"Sie ergibt sich nicht, man besiegt sie nicht
Sie ist stark, der Macht des Todes unterliegt sie nicht..."
"No good deed goes unpunished, no act of charity goes unresented
No good deed goes unpunished, that's my new creed."
The Phantom of the Opera...
"You'll learn to see, to find the man behind the monster,
this repulsive carcass ... who seems a beast,
but secretly, dreams of beauty,
Secretly, secretly ... Oh, Christine ..."
Love Never Dies
"Is there music in your head? Have you followed where it led?
And been graced with the taste of the beauty underneath?"
Die Drei Musketiere...
"Sie zerbrach an unser beider Sündenfall
Mein Engel aus Kristall"
"Lang wollt' ich die Wahrheit nicht sehn
Langsam fang ich an zu verstehn:
Gott hört uns nicht
Wozu dann beten?"
Romeo und Julja
"Der Hass, der Hass
schleicht sich ein wie eine Schlange
Der Hass, der Hass
weilt in unserem Herz schon lange..."
"Und Lieben heißt, bereitzustehen -
Nun, ich bin da..."
