Phantom of the Opera in Fifteen Minutes

As promised: Phantom of the Opera in Fifteen Minutes. I'm still counting up the fundraising, but we'll have a final count soon. I'm already running late with the book manuscript, but this was a very quick write--it practically parodies itself, and it was fun, and a good palate cleanser.

ETA 4/02/05: Okay. I'm gonna try to be real clear about this. I really, really liked the movie. I liked the book. I have never seen the show, but I would probably like it, and I ended up really enjoying the music. I like the actors involved. PLEASE DO NOT LEAVE ME COMMENTS ABOUT MY "HATE" FOR THE MOVIE. The point of these parodies is "affectionate snark." The jokes are written with love. If I hated the movie, I wouldn't bother. If you think I'm not funny, that's one thing, but please don't leave me long screeds about how I didn't "understand" or "appreciate" the movie, because you're preaching to the choir. (Yes, I have received, and am still receiving, a lot of these. Two today alone, in fact.)

P.S. Please look up the difference between "heroin" and "heroine" before you complain about my "Heroine Addict" icons. It's a pun. It's supposed to be a positive thing. I'm not calling anyone a drug user. Thank you, and enjoy.

Oh, and since it always comes up: I never have a problem with anyone leaving comments. In fact, if you'd like, you can leave them in the comments for me to see. But please don't copy or repost the entire thing anywhere; excerpts and links are always fine, though.

ETA: Minor corrections have been made to dates and a couple of names.

FANFIC WRITERS: Did someone say SLASH?

I think that's the best line ever! Yay!

Oh, and I wait with baited breath (what does that mean, anyway?) for your book! =)

Well, I think it's safe to say that you are still on top of your game, dear. If this was your idea of a palate cleanser, I truly do think your published pieces will shine.

Don't stress. Just let the words flow. It's a voice you use very well. it won't falter if you trust it. Good luck.

L o L,
looking forward

LOVE the "are we there yet?" and the 'tour' of his lair. awesome. And I love your Carlotta about 8 billion times better than I did during the movie. :) And the masquerade scene was great. :) And the rest of it. of course. The whole end sequence with her not wanting to leave = hilarious. And good point about her totally taking forever to get the mask off as he just sat there, letting her... Oy.

psst, Firmin & Andre are their last names... Also, you started calling him The Phantom a couple lines too soon.
