Author has written 11 stories for Phantom of the Opera.
I'm Gabrina and I've been a FF.net member since 2005. In my spare time I rescue abandoned dogs and am a published author with more than 25 books/short stories available. You can find me on Twitter @gabrina and on Tumblr as gabrinag where I love to reblog all kinds of Phantomy goodness, plus random stuff.
I write (mostly) Erik Kire stories. He is my version of the Phantom of the Opera and luckily for me, the guy doesn't shut up. Whether I'm at work, the grocery store, or out walking the dogs, I have moments where I think, "What would Kire say to that?" I enjoy writing his story--and trust me, he thinks it's only his story, especially early on.
A lot has happened since I started writing Phan Fic, but I hope to continue some of the stories I loved writing so much. I will slowly but surely finish what I started. :)
If you want to read his stories in order, you'll probably have to wait a while for the earlier ones to be finished. Right now these are how they are written (and finished) where it makes sense:
1) A Heart that Waits, A Heart that Bleeds
2) A Ghost's Shadow
3) One Week
The "early years" of Kire's life are detailed in Giver of Life (completed), which started as vignettes and then turned into how he found his way into the hands of Gypsies. There's probably some stories in between that and Of Persia that I just haven't figured out yet. As of now (Autumn 2012) Of Persia and the Julia stories are my priorities for finishing. Julia will get an overhaul of earlier chapters once the story is complete.
I am extremely excited about Of Persia since this seems to be a time in the Phantom's life that isn't really explored.
To me, the Phantom is incredibly arrogant yet lacking confidence in himself. He's naive in some aspects and a master in others. He has learned to act the part of a gentleman despite being a recluse. He will not ask for mercy or expect it. On the outside is a monster, but on the inside, despite being hidden from even himself, is a redeemable man.
I know a lot of people lurk, but leaving a review means a lot. For me, I know if the readers are getting the story, if they're anticipating what I have in store, and sometimes a review actually makes me rewrite an upcoming chapter.
Currently Working on:
Beyond Ghosts and Shadows
Other Phantomy Goodness
I will quit the Internet when Killian Donnelly deletes his Twitter account.
John vs Killian is the only reason I go to YouTube
The Bromance between Hadley/Ramin and John/Killian makes me want to write slash fanfic (and I would be the BOSS of that!)
Ben Lewis (sans facial expression overload) is probably my ideal Phantom. He's tall, his voice is amazing, and he has an imposing presence.
I have a mad, dirty little crush on John Owen-Jones's Phantom. This crush is mostly about his voice and his hands.
Hugh Panaro sort of reminds me of Kire with his dry sense of humor. He was fantastic to see perform live.
