In This Darkness: the Memories of Adele Giry

By Christi V.

Authorís Notes: While the Phantom of the Opera story itself is in the public domain, this writing is heavily influenced by the Andrew Lloyd Webber musical. All aspects of this phic associated with that production are the property of Lloyd Webber and his collaborators, and the author makes no claim to the ownership thereof.

I would also like to give credit to Leila Martin, the long-time Mme. Giry in New York whose astounding performance (and unique ideas regarding the character) was part of the inspiration for this phic.

Finally, this work is rated...well, to be honest I think most of the ratings systems in existence are ridiculously arbitrary, but be aware this story involves adult content, sex, and the requisite violence. Donít say I didnít warn you.
