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 dear gods! I am totally with the Phans: "Where the hell is the falling chandelier!!!" That was me.

First Cleo, I have to say I am a huge fan of your movies in 15 minutes.

I am so glad that I am not the only one that noticed that The Phantom was extremely into having his mask removed.

As for this Phantom, you got it right - just put him on the right side of the bed (or have him leave the mask on for that kinky effect)and he's totally hot.

I actually liked the movie, as it was big, corny, romantic, shmaltzy...and I like that.

However, I think I like your version better. :D

Totally loved. You make me laugh so hard!! I especially love the "ARE YOU IN THERE WITH SOME VAMPIRE?" or whatever *g*

Me too, although a Krolock reference would've just been the cherry on top. ;-)

Hilarity!!!!! You never cease to make me laugh with these! I haven't seen the movie yet, so now I'm going to be laughing at parts I shouldn't be. That's how it was with "The Day After Tomorrow," when I could only think of the presedent as "Not-Cheney."

OMFG YES. Utterly hilarious. I am sooooo glad you did a piece for Phantom--I've been an uberphan for several years, loved the movie, and am glad to see someone mocking it without teh hate. :D

Okay! You get what I'm doing! See?! People keep being like, "I actually *liked* the movie," and it's like, what makes you think I didn't?

CHRISTINE: Well, there was that whole murder thing just now.

RAOUL: Atta girl! I will love you and marry you and hold you and protect you and spend my whole life keeping you AWAY FROM HIM.

Brilliant. XD

In case I haven't said it recently, you rock!

[Christine rips off the Phantom’s cute little Zorro mask, revealing a monster with half his face burned off and his eyelid all messed up and half his hair greying and fallen out… despite the fact most of this wasn’t covered by the little Zorro mask, and it looked fine two minutes ago.]

Thank god! I was beginning to think that I was the only one in the world who'd noticed that - none of my friends did.

Once again, I shall have to sue you for causing me to break a rib. HIGH-larious. Great job, as usual.

Oh, I totally forgot! I love the random Giry accent. I played Madame Giry once and I totally did a French accent even though everyone else had a generic British one. Lol.

Oh, love, love, love. Excellent. And it is so excellent because it is so TRUE.

Thank you for the phabulous phandom--like "Erik with a c or k?"-- and book references--the Persian, his nose...
All your fandom-savvy references make it so much more TEH FUNNEH.

Joy! I love you!
