Author has written 16 stories for Phantom of the Opera, and Avatar.
07/01/2015: As promised, here's an update on the 1st of the month. I'm continuing to edit my posted story, and that's coming along well. I still hope to have it up on Amazon by the end of the year. I've also made progress with the new story, but it's far from finished. For now, it's a fan fiction. And here's a little teaser...
Jack O' Lantern Man
Rain poured down from the darkening autumn sky, soaking her cotton blouse. Her hair stuck to her face. The baby wailed in her arms, and Christine held her closer, warming them both. She didn’t slow down, even as her high heel landed in a puddle and sent a spray of water up her left leg.
No one glanced at her as she ran past them. Everyone probably assumed she was just a mother in a rush. Maybe late for a pediatrician appointment. Or a playdate. She used to be that mother.
Her lungs burned. She could no longer smell the food from the nearby shops, the pizza place. The donut and coffee cafe. The baby wriggled in her arms. “Mama!”
“It’s okay, Mia. I’ll get you warm soon.”
She would need diapers and wipes. A change of clothes for both of them. What else? Food. Or formula? Blankets. Toys, maybe. She searched her most painful memories.
How long before they found her?
Christine dove through the sliding door of a Walgreen’s.
“Oh, you poor thing,” said the elderly lady at the register. “We have umbrellas back there. Should only be about five bucks a piece.”
How much cash did she have in her purse? Probably fifty. She couldn’t use the credit card.
She bought baby formula and a couple jars of food. Diapers. A cheap umbrella. A candy bar for herself, just for energy. They didn’t have many clothes, so she grabbed a t-shirt with a smiling orca whale on it. Finally, she bought a couple of toys. The baby wept and buried her face into Christine’s shoulder.
“Aw,” said the cashier as she scanned the items. Her blue nametag said ‘Violet.’ “What a cutie. How old is she?”
“Um. About a year.” Was that right?
“It’s a great age. They’re really starting to explore the world around them.” Christine kept her eyes lowered. “All righty. That’ll be thirty-five, seventy-nine.”
She’d have a little left over. Christine handed the woman two drenched twenties.
The woman eyed her. “Anything else you need, dear?”
Christine could hear the actual question: You in any trouble?
“I’m good,” she replied.
“Okay. You take care.”
“Goodbye,” Christine whispered.
How long before this all made the news? Then people would look at her with hatred instead of sympathy.
06/01/2015: I thought I’d post an update in case anyone is wondering what I’m up to writing-wise. I have two projects going right now. The first of those is getting one my posted stories ready for online publishing. I am self-publishing, but the story is still going through a lot of changes to make it a better read. I’m having a couple of non-phans read it to get their take. I hope to have this project completed by the end of the year, but that’ll depend on a lot of factors.
And—I have started a new story. But I’m honestly not sure if it works better as a piece of fan fiction or original fiction. It walks a fine line between both. I’d like to eventually begin sharing some of it, but I’m not sure where to post. It’s a mature story with dark themes, although not really for the usual POTO reasons. When I get most of it written, I’ll let everyone know what I’ve decided to do.
So those are the two main projects right now. I have a handful of other plans on the backburner. I’ll try to post an update here on the first day of each month for those who want to follow along.
Thanks to everyone who continues to read, review, and favorite!
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!
