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.

OH MY GOD, HE'S SLIGHTLY UNATTRACTIVE ON ONE SIDE! TO ARMS!Collapse )

Brilliant seems to be such and understatment here, but it's the only word that I can find that comes close!

Thanks for the MANY laughs.

Oh my god, how much do I love you for writing these? Utterly hilarious!!

My favorite parts had to be the scene on the roof of the opera house and the Phantom's lair for the second time (with the great kiss and the forwarding address and all that jazz), although the whole thing was fantastic and perfect. Methuselah Raoul? Come on. LOVE it.

And this: UGLY MONKEY BOX: OH SNAP. *ching* was the perfect way to end it.

*is wildly in love with you*

*...again.*

Seriously, you can do no wrong. While the movie hasn't made it here yet, I love the book and, as usual, your condensed form is sheer brilliance. Bravo!

Pssst... I think you put "Phantom" in the D memories section.

Okay, that's really weird, because I created a "P" section just for it. Am I crazy, or has LJ persistently been messing with me today?
