Author has written 7 stories for Phantom of the Opera, Fairy Tales, and Greek Mythology.

Greetings, visitor.

What to say? Since writing about ourselves seems the common thing to do in profiles, I shall write things about myself here.

I am fairly short. I've been told I won't grow anymore. That hurts, deep within my soul. I don't particularly feel like elaborating on my physical features, as most visitors will not have the joy of feeling my august presence. Ha ha ha. That is to say, we will probably not meet any time soon. To say a little about my likes and dislikes: musicals and music are my life. I worship my piano, read many books, and abhor bad grammar and bad manners.A NOTE TO EVERYONE: I do not think I will be writing for quite a while. I haven't acquired much in the way of fans, but if I'm disappointing anyone, I'm very sorry:) I am currently just too busy to write. x's and o' s to everyone!

MY FANFICTION PREFERENCES: If I haven't made this clear already, I like Leroux-based fanfiction. ALW is okay, I guess, but I'd prefer Leroux. I love the musical very much, but just not as much in fanfiction. Well, as I forgot to update my profile until now, I'd like to say that I saw The Phantom of the Opera in New York and enjoyed it very much. I've seen the silent film with Lon Chaney, and the animated Phantom of the Opera, which I love. Erik is sort of...cute? I've read Journey of the Mask, by Nancy Hill Pettengill: I make no comment here, positive or negative, since I was rendered speechless by the extreme out-of-character characters. I've read Susan Kay's Phantom. Susan Kay, I believe, writes well and meant well with her book, but it was a bit unrealistic. So sum this up in one short, concise, truncated, abbreviated, abridged, compact, curt, condensed, contracted, succinct, summarized, boiled-down, short-lived, unsustained, brief, and not at all eloquent sentence, I shall say thus: "The Grammarian prefers Leroux-based fanfiction and will almost always only write the latter. Exceptions to this statement have not been made yet."

OTHER PREFERENCES: E/C, R/C. I do not support nor write "Other Character" stories, and my pairings are strictly canon when written for the Phantom of the Opera fandom. Unless it is a parody, of course. Everyone's entitled to their own opinion, and their own tragically deformed Mary-Sue, however, so write OW stories to your heart's content, not mine. :)

MY STYLE: I am an avid fan of

I. Darkfluff, a new genre begun by Christine Persephone and theangelcried (some free advertising here!)

II. Morbid-horror and darkness

III. Plain old suspense

I plan to write mostly suspense for the Phantom of the Opera fandom, since I believe that is most in-keeping with the spirit of the wonderful book written by the charmingly and shockingly and interestingly amoral Gaston Leroux.

STORIES!

The Époque's Advertisement And What Followed

What happened to Christine when she went to bury Erik with the little gold ring as she promised?

CONTAINS: Morbidity, suspense, and nightmares.

Little Red Riding Hood

A dark adaptation of the original fairy-tale. Since there was immediate criticism of my apparent lack of thoroughness regarding finding the Fairy Tales genre on ff.net, I'd just like to let the general public know that I have changed the genre of Little Red Riding Hood to Fairy Tales. Thanks all.

CONTAINS: Much pro-wolf content.

Languishing

A Leroux-based one-shot. It has no plot, really, but is merely Erik's rambling thoughts preceding his death.

Memories

A fairy-tale-like one-shot, and winner of the Fourth Morbidity Contest. Erik strives to preserve any memories of the deceased Christine he can.

CONTAINS: Roses, flowering trees, songbirds, and disembodied music.

The Intruder

What will be the fate of the new occupant of Christine's dressing-room? No pairings, actually.

CONTAINS: Suspense and a lot of obscure theatre superstitions.

From the Northern Railway Station of the World

A snapshot of the return to the North by Christine, Raoul, and Mama Valerius. Leroux-based, of course, and post-Christine-saga. It's vaguely R/C-ish, a warning for all you die-hard E/C fans.

CONTAINS: Thoughtful Raouls and distressed Christines. And tea.

NOTE: I'd like to thank Min Daae for betaing this particular phic. :blows kisses:

The Mad Princess

A fic that documents the tragic life of the mad Princess Cassandra of Troy. My love of Greek mythology inspired me to write this one. It will be dark.

CONTAINS: So far, Cassandra and Helenus, Apollo, and some mystery.

NOTE: As I mentioned in the first chapter, I'd like to thank Google and World Book Online for providing me with resources and information regarding Troy and Cassandra.

xoxo

The Intruder reviews
A Lerouxbased tale. What is the fate of the new occupant of Christine's dressing room? A wisp of smoke from the candle climbed to the ceiling and the light from the hallway illuminated the jagged, broken shards of the little mirror, fallen to the floor.
