Author has written 4 stories for Haiku, Love, and Mystery.
Meet the Angel of Music from E.S.A. She is the figure in the deep blue velvet cloak standing silently by the door. She welcomes you to read and share the works of her heart.

Things I like:

Phantom of the Opera (in all its incarnations except the Robert England from what I hear of it), Les Miz, The Secret Garden (the musical), the original Star Wars trilogy, the Lord of the Rings trilogy (all incarnations except the animated movie and the American attempt at a radio production), Titanic and the songs from Sailor Moon. More generally, I like classical music, adventure stories (especially those that combine adventure and romance), love stories with happy or uplifting endings, all things romantic, studying cool academic subjects and anime.

Things I don't like:

Sudden loud noises, hospitals and doctors or anything medical, people who hold to antiquated stereotypes about Blind people, on-screen bullying or sexual violence (though for some reason I don't mind fight or battle scenes, maybe because I can't see them), Sinicism, fanaticism and insects that fly around my head.

Age? 24

Occupation? Professional student, writer and singer.

Marital status? Lost love.

Favourite quotes:

"To love another person is to see the face of God." (the musical of Les Miserables)

"Pitiful creature of darkness, what kind of life have you known? God give me courage to show you you are not alone." (Phantom of the Opera, the musical by Andrew Lloyd Webber)

"What you sew in tears you shall reap in joy." (somewhere in the Bible)

"If I did that, then my brain would have been replaced with a broccoli sprout!" (my best friend Nichola, although she says she got it from Adventures In Odesy.)

"God died to take away our sins, not our minds." (Church of the Redeemer's billboard)

"His heart could have held the empire of the world. But in the end, he had to content himself with a cellar." (Phantom of the Opera, the original novel by Gaston LeRoux)

"I told you to act weak, not dead!" (Memoirs of a Geisha)

"Wars, not make one great." (Star Wars episode 8 The Empire Strikes Back)

"Do not attempt to grow a brain!" (Speed)

"Tell me. When did Saruman the wise exchange reason for madness?" (Fellowship of the Ring, the film)

"Time for me to go row with the other slaves." (Titanic)

"I had this great, long speech prepared, but Mike Harris cut it." (Valedictory address, Etobicoke School for the Arts Commencement, 2000)

"Love will not live if it remains but a dream and if desire should possess than a beautiful corpse it becomes." (Moon Revenge from Sailor Moon)

"While burning with the foreseeable parting, I still wish that the next one in my life could be you again." (Moon Revenge from Sailor Moon)

"The deeper the love, the more greed it has..." (also Moon Revenge. Can ya tell that it's one of my favourite songs?)

"Love is a mysterious war." (La Soldier from Sailor Moon)

"I stole into your dreams, I called your soul to mine. I gave you music and truth. You must rest here with me eternally." (Phantom of the Opera, the musical by Kenneth Hill)

Favourite characters:

Erik, AKA The Phantom of the Opera; Luke Skywalker, yoda and Darth Vader; Arwen (as portrayed in Peter Jackson's wonderful films); Eponine (from Les Miz); Jane Eyre (from the original novel); Mameha (from Memoirs of a Geisha); Jack Dawson (from Titanic); Marianne (from Sense and Sensibility); Alucard (from Helsing) and I strongly suspect that Tuxedo Mask will be added to this list once I get hold of some Sailor Moon episodes.

Books I've read recently (that I liked): Tristan by Godfried Von Strasburg; Jane Eyre; The Picture of Dorian Grey; Memoirs of a Geisha by Arthur Golden; The Book of Tea by Kakuzo Okakura; The Da Vinci Code, Angels and Demons and Deception Point, all by Dan Brown; am working on 78 Degrees of Wisdom by Rachel Pollock and Stupid White Men by Michael More.

Books and things I plan to read if I ever get around to it: The Lord of the Rings trilogy; the unabridged Les Miserables; the works of Lu Shun; the Bible; the Iliad (possibly. Yes, I've seen Troy and I loved it.); Dood, Where's My Country by Michael More.

Well, you have now met Me. I hope you enjoy my stories, my labours of love. I have more of them, my works of fan fiction, over on, where I am known as Mystery Guest. Do check them out! Enjoy and please review.
