Book, film or even a quote that left something of an impact on you?

This is going to sound incredibly silly but it’s the first thing that came to mind and that’s The Phantom of the opera. I don’t know what it is about this story but it has stuck with me the moment I discovered it while watching Wishbone. I kid you not, that is how I discovered it. I think it really influenced my taste in things and I’m fairly certain my love of deformed and/or insane villains/anti-heroes comes from my original love of the phantom/Erik. 

It just fascinated me to no end and did not let go. I really got into it when I saw the 2004 film and then was like “woah there are so many version of this I must devour them all” and I did just that. I have seen every film adaption that I could get my hands on. I’ve read the books and even have albums of other musical versions aside from the one everyone knows.  I can’t get enough of it. I honestly have no clue why and it disturbs my mother. 

I was actually in a production of the ALW musical my senior year of high school and it was incredibly emotional to get the chance to live in that world for a bit. It’s magnetic. It is the first story that has truly grabbed me and not let me go. I don’t tire of it and I doubt I ever will.
