This post is going to sound whiny. Just a fair warning. Might also sound a bit insane, when you hear the rest of it. LOL

So My brother is ticking me off in new ways. He is dogging his boss from work. His boss is now calling my mother's phone just trying to take care of this. I don't think that's very professional of him. But I guess if he's really worried about Dan... anyway. That's irritating me because he needs to be getting his shit straight before Mom and Dad leave for Florida. I have no intention of going with them, but I can't carry the damn mortgage on 700.00 and I can't work outside the house. You see the problem, yes?

With all this stress, I am not surprised to find that my Fieyero muse showed up again. He's all, "You stopped following my advice?" and I had to admit that I had temporarily forgotten. So last night, I actually attempted to meditate, and get back to the Ozdust Ballroom. I failed, miserably. Fieyero.... was not amused. >.<

So today I decided to put "Dancing Through Life" on repeat. And a couple of times I was able to flicker in my mind to my version of the said ballroom. And my version of Fieyero. He closely resembles Adam Lambert's version of Fiyero. Though for some reason, his singing voice is of the original Fiyero, Norbert Leo Butz. Weird, yeah? Yeah. My Fieyero muse of course looks just as he does in my meditations.


I am on Chapter 16 of Into the Lion's Den, and things are about to really heat up. WIth Griffon having revealed his true identity, and pieces coming together, Wyatt has taken Victoria hostage, and now Teran will have to find a way to get her away from him long enough for the others to get to her in time.

(Spoiler: They don't. But no more spoilers from here on!)

Trivia: My first Original Character was cultivated with the help of my friend Jay. She was an OC for the fandom Charmed, and her name was Allison Elizabeth Carter (I swear I am seeing a pattern of the same names in my cahracters...Carter, Elizabeth... I think I used the name Madison for someone else before Victoria...)

So in a conversation the other day, my friend Valerie got a little bit upset because I hadn't been sharing any of my blurbs from Into the Lion's Den with her. Here is my answer to that, even though I will never tell her:

Into the Lion's Den is the culmination of months and months of RP. Even more writing of blurbs and a an entire manuscript lost.

As much fun as I am having writing this fan novel, it is making me severely miss that particular fandom in general. This fandom brought me some of my closest friends. Some I am still friends with to this day (you know who you are!) and others I haven't heard from in well over 10 years. So this is also opening a few flood gates to me.

To try and share it with anyone other than those who would understand and appreciate the work I've put into the story and the characters involved, including their back stories would be far too hard.Not only that, I just done have the patience to explain every single aspect so I just share what I can online, the parts that won't require much explanation.

It's so much more fun talking about this work when people understand the characters, the fandom, and where i am trying to go with it. Some could argue that I could discuss the aspects of The Phantom of the Opera with her. (SHe's a big Phantom of the Opera fan) . But I think there are more Yu gi oh references that she won't get to understand.

So what do you guys think? Do you share fandom works with people who you know aren't into the genre or fandom? She has made it clear that she is *not* into anime. Help?

Trivia: In the original draft of Into the Lion's Den, Christien believes that Victoria has finished with him and she and Teran start dating. In this version, Griffon develops strong feelings for Victoria while pretending to want to break her and Christien up. (Yes, confusing, I know, but you'll understand if and when I decide to post this anywhere)

With Into the Lion's Den being akin to a large play with a huge cast, I figured i needed to keep a record of who was playing who, and their roles on and off stage. So here we go!

Victoria Ishtar: Youngest sister of Marik, Rishid and Ishizu Ishtar. Adopted after Yami Marik brought her from he world where the people of Domino City were characters, not real people. She is the main character of the story. Becomes the unwilling pawn of Wyatt Munroe who plans to use her to bring down the entire Roba family. Plays Christine Daae on stage, and has played the role for close to 3 theatre seasons by the time this story takes place.

Christien Roba:Middle Roba brother. In the ESP Duelist episodes, he is the one who wears the headset. -points to icon- His speech at the end of the second episode of the set made me personally fall in love with this guy. In the story, Christien and Tori have been dating for 4 years, and are very serious. At 16, he is already thinking about whhat he wants to do with the rest of his life, and he wants Victoria be a part of it. His part in the story is sort of the "Raoul" character. He fights hard to get Victoria away from the school when things start to go south. In the prior productions of Phantom of the Opera, Christien held the role of "The Phantom" for three theatre seasons.

Espa Roba: The eldest Roba, and the legal guardian of his four brothers. Espa is in his 20s in the story, and the owner of Pryce's Carnival of Wonders in Sykesville, a small town accessible by train. His relationship with Victoria is one of healthy respect with reservations. The eldest Roba initially hired Tori to be an extra set of hands with his youngest brothers while he worked at the bookstore Bakura owned. He, like Marik, believes Christien and Victoria moved too fast in their relationship, but has since just decided to monitor it, knowing that saying anything will make it worse. In the story, he becomes the secondary guardian to Victoria when she enrolls in Wyatt's conservatory.

Jonathan Roba: He serves as the second in command of the Roba brood, but he is very close to Christien. In the story he's recently turned 18. Jonathan's often the foil for Victoria and Christien and their crazy schemes. His role here is that he becomes a mentor to Victoria when its discovered that Wyatt has ties to the carnival, and knows she's psychic. In the productions of Phantom of the Opera, he played Raoul/vicomte de Changy.

Griffon Baxter: Griffon was originally the understudy for Christien the last season they performed Phantom of the Opera. When Christien got sick towards the end of the run, he worked with Victoria for that last bit. They developed a good friendship, and remained in contact. He is the one who invites Victoria to join the school when she returns to the carnival for the summer to help Espa. Later it's revealed that he is the son of two casino owners, and he left to persue classical theatre and music. Wyatt considers him, and another boy, Teran Bishop his star pupils. In the school's production of Phantom of the Opera, he plays The Phantom to Victoria's Christine, prompting Christien to become a little jealous.

Teran Bishop: Teran was discovered by Wyatt when he understudied for Jonathan Roba in the first season that Phantom of the Opera was performed at the local theatre in Sykesville. He, along with Griffon Baxter became Wyatt's first pupils of his Conservatory. Teran is quiet, like Christien. He becomes really protective of Victoria when he sees that Wyatt is taking advantage of her naivety. It is eventually Teran working with Christien and Jonathan to get Victoria away from Wyatt and the school.

Wyatt Munroe: The headmaster of Conservatory for Classical Arts. Wyatt is in his 40s, and was a childhood friend of Julius Roba, the Robas' father. Throughout their childhood, carnie rivalries cropped up, but none so vicious as the one developed when Marcia came into the picture. While he watched Julius manipulate his way into Marcia's heart, he also saw her try and fight him off. When Julius and his growing family eventually were fired from the carnival, he started planning his revenge. Years later, Marcia found him in California and they were married. There is just one last thing he needs to do, and it will bring down the entire Roba clan.

(I can't wait to work on this more, now that I have things organized!! I had to re-adjust ages for both Victoria and the Robas. Cause originally I realized that Christien would've initially been younger that Tori during Entrapment, and I didn't like it. So I re-confiqured the time line for Into the Lion's Den)

Trivia: In my verse, All 5 of the Robas are psychic. All of them have ESP and telepathy., Christien's specialty is in telepathy and suggestion. Jonathan's is ESP and psychometry. Espa's is ESP and telepathy (he used to have telekinesis but after an incident where he overused it(Mystery at Thunderborough Park), lost the ability), Andrew's power is stifled do to a learning disability, but he can use suggestion to get what he wants. Ej is the only Roba with telekinesis. The episode where Espa and his brothers try to cheat Joey Wheeler was a ruse in itself to keep people from finding out they are actually psychic.
