Gemma's Purple Notebook (Poetry)
13 chapters   —   updated Jul 27, 2013 10:53PM
Description: I write all my work in a purple, wide-ruled, spiral notebook, so it's a fitting title here. I'll be adding to this in the future, so if you like this, stop in sometime. I might have something new.
The Phantom of the Chagnys (Literature & Fiction)
1 chapters   —   updated Mar 11, 2011 04:09PM
Description: *THIS IS FAN FICTION* It's based on <i>The Phantom of the Opera</i> by Gaston Leroux and the Andrew Lloyd Webber musical. If this tickles your fancy, read the original novel or go see the show (I'd also recommend the 2004 movie). They're worth it!
