You can call me Raven.
Well, a little about me:
I'm a 26-year-old college student at the University of Riverside, double majoring in creative writing and theater and planning to get my MFA in writing for stage and screen. Two of my favorite authors are Edgar Allan Poe (hence the "Raven" in my username) and Victor Hugo.
My Favorite Books
The Phantom of the Opera by Gaston Leroux. I love Erik. He is an amazingly complex, beautiful character. Michael Crawford is the voice of Erik. As for Christine, I love Emmy Rossum. I've never cared for Sarah's voice in the role; she has too much vibrato and sounds like she's in a car driving over a bumpy road or like she's singing underwater (or like she's driving in a bumpy car underwater). I hate Leroux Christine, although at least she's a better-developed character than the two-dimensional cardboard cutout ALW made her.
The Man Who Laughs by Victor Hugo. I love this book. I have to say that it's my favorite out of the two Hugo books I've read so far (the other book being The Hunchback of Notre Dame). It takes me forever to get through Hugo's work (and I'm usually a very fast reader; I can zip through a several-hundred page novel on an uninterrupted afternoon if I want to) but oh, boy, is it worth it.
I would love to see a page for this great book dedicated on FF.Net. I'm going to start writing more The Man Who Laughs fics to try and get the attention of the admins.
I've written a play version of The Man Who Laughs. It has been edited and workshopped a few times and had its first public reading on May 4th at San Diego State University's Experimental Theatre.
