Evanescence has a LOT of music that crosses into Erik/Christine's realm. Frequently one her songs has inspired my PTO plotlines/scenes. I have even had the CD's blaring on endless loop to my husband's disapproval as I write.

Field of Innocence https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M7uZcexsPuw
Erik and Christine viewing the world after their love has altered their respective realities.

Anywhere https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=slVW...B7C8F14C993543
I think of this as once Christine accepts her feelings for Erik.

Even in Death https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sTP5...=RDsTP5Cx4BbZw
Christine haunted after the Phantom passes on.

Solitude https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=30_t...B7C8F14C993543
Erik pining when Christine rejects him.

This is just gorgeous about two star-crossed lovers dreaming for the impossible.

Surrender https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e8EK...93543&index=31
Obsess much, dear Erik? Why yes... yes--you belong to me!

This works for both of them in my mind ... back and forth. This a song I particularly looped during the conception for "Nightingale's Strain". My husband grabbed the CD and hid it ... too bad I had ripped the CD onto my hard drive.

Lost in Paradise https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3rnxlW5TrBs
Erik, absolutely and completely. This was another looped piece during writing where I pictured him with his violin on the incomplete empty stage of Carnegie Hall prior to the opening nights. It also spawned the backstage revelation of Erik's presence to Christine, a Hudson river scene, and the climactic end conflict.

There are more... but I think my secret methods for churning out devilishly wild twisted tales is showing.

I have a few other artists who had influenced as well, maybe I will collect those and post links.


"The only way to ensure a dream withstands the torrents of time is to lay the foundation in hard work and skills. Anything less and the accomplishment is not worth recognition."-Erik- from my novel ~Nightingale's Strain~
