Author has written 7 stories for Phantom of the Opera, and Phantom of the Opera.

These Phanphic stories are protected by copyright but are my free gift to you to enjoy. All rights reserved.

One of my readers suggested I update in my profile about when I plan to post a new chapter, (barring unforeseen circumstances). So, here goes... I'll change as needed.

Update for 6-20-2015:

Symphony in the Twilight- next chapter has been posted

Come to Me - am working on first scene of next chapter

The Claim: am slowly writing next chapter

I want to reassure the many of you who have contacted me in reviews and by PMs, at deviantART, Youtube, etc, that I have NOT given up any of my current ongoing stories. :) Work deadlines come along, and since they pay the bills, they have to come first. But the E/C phanphics draw me in, they have for years, and I write them for enjoyment, as I am inspired. Please know that even if some time passes, I haven't forgotten. I love working on my stories and hope to be able to post updates closer together. I am a finisher. Also, please keep in mind that I have other artistic hobbies - I make fanmade music videos (including PotO) and E/C manips in my free time, and I have people patiently (or not so much) waiting on requests for those too. :) So I ask that you please be patient, and thank you guys so much for your reviews, continued interest and support! :) You rock!

I love the 2004 Phantom of the Opera movie, ever since I first saw it, when I received the DVD for my birthday in 2005. That is when I was first introduced to Phantom of the Opera, and since then, my passion for the movie has never died, especially for the deeper story that a group of us believe we found within it (beginning one month after I got the DVD). My interests include reading, writing, Renaissance faires, and more.

Besides my career writing, I love to write phanphics for enjoyment- it has become something of an obsession - E/C based always with satisfying endings (no tragedies from this corner! Life has enough tragedy) - but it’s difficult for me if I hear nothing from my readers. I feel as if I'm writing into a big Internet black hole and start questioning myself, especially when I see chapters read by many. Please feed my review hunger. :) I’m not asking for glowing praise if you don’t think the stories are that good - Criticism is fine, as long as it’s not senseless flaming … I just need to know something of how my readers feel ... Otherwise I might start having in-depth conversations with the characters' voices in my head, mostly Erik, who is always ranting at me about getting him out of a jam and with or back to Christine (Patience, Erik, I hear you!) So please leave a review. :) Even on the old phanphics, it would be much appreciated.

My muse will thank you. Erik will thank you. ;-)

I'm really not sure how to classify my stories. They are both angst and they are fluff; they have tragic and dangerous moments and humorous ones; they are emotionally deep, they are mysterious and suspenseful, they are sweet and light – all like real life, which involves bits and pieces of all these things, (sometimes more than a bit) and my stories do too, as well as most of them containing some form of fantasy. So I guess I would classify them as: "adventurous angsty suspenseful fantasy fluff romance." lol :)

xXx

To me, The Phantom or "Erik" will always be the Gerard Butler representation, unless otherwise said per story – that is how I was first introduced to Phantom of the Opera, (through the movie) – and though he might have a rock-n’roll type voice (not so much operatic)- and a drop dead gorgeous body/ sexy persona, his emotional portrayal of the Phantom is what gripped my heart, more so than any POTO movie I have ever seen. More so than GL’s book (that Erik frightened me). Or Kay's (though I love how she made him more human and felt better able to relate to him.) I loved Ramin Karimloo's stage portrayal too ... But the Erik in most all my stories – they are usually how Gerard Butler appeared and acted, or as close as I can come to attempt to write and hopefully master such a complicated and multi-faceted individual as GB's Phantom! To me, Christine will always be Emmy Rossum also – dark wild hair, dark haunted eyes, childlike features and innocence - yet womanly ones too. Shy at times, bold at others, curious, etc ...

Stories to date (4 completes):

Reflections of the Soul: A short E/C fic– The antique dressing table is shrouded in mystery. Unable to remember her past, why does Christine hear a man's lyrical whisper call to her from beyond its mirror? modern/some historical - M rated.

The Quest: a historical high fantasy E/C romance sequel to movie – based on the deeper story of the hidden plot (scroll to see more) - M rated

The Treasure: Sequel to The Quest – historical high fantasy E/C romance takes place in Spain and France - M rated

A Phantom Christmas Carol: An adaptation of the famous Dickens’ classic - E/C - T rated

*I also have this story on youtube, and it is now complete (though it has a different ending than the one written here, for closure) - You can find it in a playlist here:

A Phantom Christmas Carol - copy and paste the following- https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL290C2D5CC4FC2595

Also, Phantom of the Opera- the 2004 movie, the 25th anniversary stage show, the UK reboot, and Love Never Dies- both the Australian movie and the London show with Ramin and Sierra- are some of my favorite fandoms to vid. To date, I have 64 videos of PotO on there in one or more of these forms, starting with my very first fanmade music video years ago and ending with my most recent in April 2014 (so far). Check it out if you'd like. :) -

A Phantom's Blood: (Title subject to Change) - This will be a request I've received (well, two of them really) to do an Outlander/Phantom based story - a Phantom twist to the Starz series, though some of my own ideas blended in as well.

(will be rated M) E/C

I love visuals while I read and know others who feel the same.

That said, I make E/C manipulations to go with my stories. If interested to see, my account is at deviantART:

(I do take E/C requests for any favorite scenes you might have in my stories. Though please be advised, there is a list, and I also fit in what I want to do for personal faves. It takes me awhile- weeks- to make one of these when I begin it.)

Please note: these E/C manipulations are copyrighted to me. Please, do NOT take them to use elsewhere without my permission AND without giving me credit as the artist. Also, and I would hope everyone knows this- do not take them to transfer to things and sell on ebay or elsewhere. If you ever see any of my work being sold there or anywhere else, please contact me. Thank you.

One of my wonderful readers also made signature banners using my manips- be sure and check out her work too!

My current avatar is from an E/C manip I made for my story "Come to Me".

Note: To follow my stories (The Quest & its sequel, The Treasure), you must open your imagination ... let your mind start a journey through a strange new world, leave all thoughts of this tale you knew before

These two stories are very unique since they are based on a deeper story idea of movie also known as hidden plot theory a group of us feel we found... but I always try to keep all main characters true to form, as they showed them in movie.

First, if you want to learn more about what we found, below is the URL, which will take you to the hidden plot forum with ALL the threads (a new site as of 12/13). Copy and paste this to get there:

The foundation of my sequels (The Quest & The Treasure) are based on this deeper fantasy story we believe we uncovered in ALW/JS’s Phantom of the Opera movie, the RUG companion book, and more. We believe we solved the mystery "never fully explained" and that all clues work together to show a deeper story -with a message of unconditional love, forgiveness, and redemption. Where Erik not only got his girl, but chose light and broke away from darkness ...

Feel free to come join us if you'd like! It's open to all.

one last thing- if you'd like to read it- from the zillion clues we found, and putting them all together, here's the gist of the deeper story idea (hidden plot) - some of us differ on a few points - like Raoul's role and who he really was, etc, but for the most part, we all believe that this was an E/C romance with a happy triumphant ending ... please don't mind the fairy tale prose; (my stories aren't like that lol) It just seemed fun to do it this way...

Phantom of the Opera--mini summary of deeper story (not b&w scenes):

Once long ago, in a kingdom devoted to song, there lived a king and a woman destined to become his queen. He loved her dearly, and from the time she was a little girl, up until she grew into a beautiful woman, he sang to her in dreams of comfort, watched over her, and trained her to become the only thing for which she desired and ever asked: Music. Because he was the spirit of Music, he created her into Music as well, and they gave to one another the gift of their song, singing only for the other.

The bonds between them grew powerful as her affection and awe for him strengthened into love. But an evil spirit sought to destroy them and take over the opera house kingdom. He deceived them both into believing he was their friend: For the king, since the time he was a child and caged by cruel gypsies. For his chosen queen, on the night she walked through the mirror and approached Music’s throne, for the first time seeing her king. The evil spirit acted as a false priest to the king, and the king listened to him. Because the king had a deformity, the spirit lied to him, saying he must always hide, so as to keep him chained in darkness. But his intended saw deep beauty in him, regardless of his face, and she hurt for his pain. She desired the light and tried to persuade her king to open his eyes to it.

Also in this kingdom lived a woman who faithfully served the king as his priest, since the day she saved him from death when he was a child. She also wrongfully thought the evil spirit was a friend since he had protected the boy, and she served him too. Her daughter was young and ignorant of many things, slowly growing into her role. She, too, served the king, but not the Darkness, though she did herald its arrival to the subjects of the kingdom.

Into this kingdom arrived a handsome priest of the Light who wanted to free the people from the evil spirit, whose curse remained over the opera house kingdom and all its subjects. But when he saw his childhood love, his greater mission became lost as he grew solely focused on and served her. He was blinded to all that was expected of him, though he did help the woman priest to see the truth, and she recognized the evil of the spirit and denied him, to serve the Light instead. The priest’s single-minded devotion for the young woman pushed him in to ignoring the kingdom rule of silence. Instead he committed treason and talked others into it as well--and he tried to take from the king his rightful queen. The king became hurt and angry when, out of fear of the Darkness, his intended did turn to her priest for a short time. But her love for the king triumphed, and she evaded plans for his capture, betraying the kingdom conspiracy to overthrow the king - and showed him what he must do to enter the light with her. Men sought to kill both the king and his intended and fear made him retreat, taking her with him. He then allowed the evil spirit to wreak all the deadly terror he desired, but later regretted his decision.

In one fateful night, the evil spirit exacted his revenge. Lives were shattered, while one was reborn, and two hungry souls were even more strongly bonded by a kiss. At last, the king recognized his intended's love for him, and his own love for her made him realize he could not keep her with him. Broken, he ordered her to go. But she returned and made one final plea, showing him her eternal love by folding into his hand her ring of light and promise, afraid he might not make the choice she wanted, but knowing she must leave the darkness behind. The king, upon hearing her parting song of love to him and the priest’s vow to serve him, grew stronger in spirit, and he broke the evil spirit’s hold over his life, leaving his fallen kingdom behind to enter the world of his beloved and share a life with her. . .


I would be remiss if I didn’t thank those geniuses, Joel Schumacher and Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber, for creating a movie that will live in my heart always.

May all your songs take flight--and may they soar toward the heavens!
