10/04/2015: A big thank you to all who have supported “Shadows Over Eden,” a revised version of “Shadow Government.” It’s now available on Amazon as both an e-book and a paperback. I continue to greatly appreciate reviews on Amazon.
My spooky POTO story has been moving along, and I hope to have some chapters up by the end of his month. Here is the summary:
There is no Angel of Music, but the two childhood sweethearts still find each other. Hoping to coax his little brother away from the lowly singer, the Comte takes Raoul on what should have been an uneventful trip. The first mishap leads them to a very strange home. The second mishap may doom them all. Lerouxish AU.
And here is a teaser:
Philippe and Bernard soon went out again to examine the damage to the coach. Raoul heavily sat on the couch, sending a cloud of dust into the air, and closed his eyes. He imagined Christine waiting for him in Paris, tucked away in her warm flat. He imagined holding her hand and kissing her cheek. He imagined her father’s violin playing. Oh, it was marvelous.
That was not his imagination or a dream. Raoul opened his eyes. Slowly, he stood. Yes, the weak hum of a bow against string was quite real. The hypnotizing sound nearly drew him forward. What a smooth and pleasant melody. Suddenly, he heard the old woman shout in a frightening voice: “Enough with that racket! There are people here! Enough!” It sounded like she was screaming at a dog. What on earth? The violin stopped, snapping Raoul out of the haze.
When Philippe returned with a grim expression, Raoul said, “There is someone else here, I think. I heard her shouting at someone for playing music. Isn’t that odd?”
“Hm? What are you going on about? Let us mind our own business, Raoul. We do not want to upset her.”
“But I heard–”
“Enough.” Philippe glanced at the driver. “Well, he is starting to look better. Now we simply need to get the wheel repaired and hope that the weather clears up by morning. The snow is coming down harder.”
Philippe and Bernard sat down to rest by the fire, leaning against the walls and table. Raoul found he could not sleep at all now. He looked around at the decrepit room, searching for the house’s secrets. The old woman had disappeared into the upstairs shadows.
He sighed and stretched, feeling restless. His eyes wandered toward the stairs. Who else was here?
He had the oddest feeling that he was being watched.
08/15/2015: A revised version of “Shadow Government” is now available on Amazon in both paperback and digital form. The new title is “Shadows Over Eden” A Phantom of the Opera Inspired Tale–by L.M. Bird.
So how much of the story has changed? Well, it’s still very much the same. And yet there are some significantly different parts, primarily in the second half. I tried to make certain parts a little more realistic as well as delete some repetitiveness. I don't think the general tone has significantly changed.
For those who are concerned, I will try to keep the original version up on ff.net. I will only remove it if I run into plagiarism or other unanticipated problems.
This story began as an original idea after I was lurking around on some fundamentalist blogs. I think the POTO elements enhanced it, and so I made it into a fan fiction. But I wanted to get it ‘out there’ a little more. I hope this strikes a good balance.
10/26/2013: I am so excited to share more beautiful drawings from H.J.F. with you, this time of "When All is Lost" Erik and Christine. Erik is especially...wow. He is unmasked, shirtless, and highly accurate. If you have not read "When All is Lost," please note that this is a very disfigured version of Erik. Wonderful work! Thank you, H.J.F!

Biskuits has done another lovely drawing from "When All is Lost." She drew the scene in Chapter 58 where E/C are sitting beneath the stairs. I especially like the coloring and Erik's hands. Take a look!
Biskuits did a lovely sketch of Erik and some of the other characters from "When All is Lost." I especially think she did a great job with Erik :) Enjoy!
