Author has written 4 stories for Short Circuit, and Phantom of the Opera.

Hey, there! Thanks for stopping by.

I am a twenty-something, trying to find my way in life, making the most of my tiny corner in the northeastern United States. Since as far back as I can remember, I have been looking for ways to spend more time with my favorite characters. Fanfiction is the most fulfilling, awesome outlet I have found so far.

Right now, I spend most of my time on this site reading and writing about Phantom of the Opera. I appreciate the story in all its forms and was lucky enough to see the amazing Las Vegas production on stage just a few months before it closed in 2012. I have a passion for used bookstores and watch Bates Motel and Once Upon a Time regularly. It is my belief that a dash of horror can spice up anything. :) I also have a major soft spot for science fiction, especially robotic characters. Short Circuit, A. I., and Gattaca are movie favorites that have captured my imagination for years.

I have found so many wonderful stories to enjoy here and spent many a night scanning the archives for the latest gems. My hope is that posting on this site will allow other writers to enjoy my stories as much as I have theirs. I believe we all have something we can learn from each other.

Note: All of the covers for my stories are openly listed as being in the public domain. They can be found at publicdomainpictures.net and public-domain-image.com.
