Male characters I'm partial to: Erik (the Phantom of the Opera), Grima Wormtongue (Lord of the Rings), Lucius Malfoy (Harry Potter), Col. William Tavington (The Patriot), Uriah Heap (David Copperfield), Twins 1 & 2 (The Matrix: Reloaded), Edward (Edward Scissorhands),Norrington (Pirates of the Carribean), Jean-Claude Frollo (The Hunchback of Notre Dame), Jafar (Disney's Aladdin), Darkness (Legend), Mordred (Arthurian Legend), Captain Hook/Mr Darling (Peter Pan),Count Fosco (The Woman in White), Count Olaf (A Series of Unfortunate Events the film), Silas (The Da Vinci Code)and Henry Jekyll/Edward Hyde (Jekyll and Hyde).

Female Characters I'm fond of: Christine (The Phantom of the Opera), Eowyn (Lord of the Rings), Fleur de Lys (The Hunchback of Notre Dame), Princess Lili (Legend), Narcissa Malfoy (Harry Potter), Marian Halcombe (The Woman in White), Violet (A Series of Unfortunate Events the film) and Wendy Darling (Peter Pan).

With regards my writing:

All of the stories under my old pen name have been removed forwith to be either reworked or stored on file. If anyone would like a copy of one of my original stories under the previous pen name, please e-mail me and I will gladly send you one.

Note: With regards 'Phantom of the Opera' fandom and fanfiction I was, and still am, fervently against the 2004 film. I will not read any fanfiction based on the movie-verse. It is not a true representation of the musical nor the story itself and did not do whatI feel was the properjustice to the characters. I do not recognise Gerard Butler, Emmy Rossum or Patrick Wilson as Erik, Christine or Raoul and will have nothing to do with their portrayals of the characters.

The End by La Sorelli reviews
My own version of the terrifying, emotional, and eventually tragic ending of the story. Leroux/Kay/a tiny bit of Webber. M for future sexual content and violence. A short-ish story.

The Daroga's Plea by La Sorelli reviews
One shot. This is the scene where the Persian confronts Erik about Christine. It's kind of based off Kay's scene, but mostly it's just my own dialogue and random thoughts. Leroux/Kay/ALW. Please review!
