Now, this is where I tell you all about myself.



Well, that didnít take long, did it?

I added this section of the page because I see similar ones on so many pages these days and havenít bothered doing it for either of my others, so I threw it in here.

It is perhaps somewhat odd that I chose to make a page about Phantom of the Opera. While I love the story and such, it is not my favorite. My favorite novel is actually Jane Eyre. Iím also a Star Wars addict (Empy is short of Empress Palpatine).

So, why did I do all this?

Because I wanted to. I do love Gaston Lerouxís novel and Andrew Lloyd Webberís musical and its movie are just amazing. The songs haunt me and I find myself mentally debating aspects of the novel long after either has finished. Since I had already to re-read the novel and had just recently finished watching the 2004 movie and found a renewal of passion for it all, this place seemed like the perfect outlet.

I am something of a purist, especially when it comes to additions to the original novel. Until very recently I was firmly set in my belief that there could be no true sequel to the work. I had toyed with one idea revolving largely around a 'Phantom' character that was not Erik but posessing similar 'deformaties' and living in a somewhat similar situation. Lately I've been thinking of a story perhaps happening during the time of the original novel and continuing to soon after, involving Erik, the House on the Lake, (perhaps) Mame Giry, and a new character. This second idea, of course, would be difficult to fit with me 'You can't change any part of the story! It's a a classic for a reason!' mantality.

That I perhaps seem to be somehow pulled to men in masks with dark capes and one foot firmly planted in darkness is none of your business, so stop prying!
