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.

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.

Best. Line. Ever.

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!

This was truly a treat, thank you cleolinda for all your hard work, creativity, and willingness to share with the masses!

I took the liberty of making a few icons...


If you feel any of them are improper or an untrue rendition of your work, please let me know and I'll take it off/fix it.

For anyone else, should anyone want to use any of my humble icons, please do so and credit back to anniesong.

Oh Thank you!

Totally loved the 15mins version of Phantom.

ANd the icons!

This so cries out for more, more more!

Especially the more obscure bits:

I was linked to this by a friend, since there is a mutual liking of POTO ...

I thouroughly enjoyed this.. and am definitely going to add you to my friends list! =)

Thanks for the great reading

*dies* Totally brilliant. :)

Sheer brilliance! Best movie in 15 minutes *ever*! :D

I'm sensing someone who might have been on the original majordomo POTO list with me back in, like, 95-99. And someone who knows his name is ERIK -- with a "K" dammit!

Anyway, LOVED it. Like the ending too :)
cleolinda From: cleolinda Date: January 10th, 2005 03:54 pm (UTC) (Link)
Nope--didn't read the book until a month ago, never seen the show, wasn't on the internet until 1997. Still glad you liked it. : )

you could just have him sleep on the right side of the bed and he’d look just fine if you were lying on the other side… really fine…

Exactly what I said when I saw the movie! I guess I've been spoiled by the really ugly stage Phantoms, eh?

This is brilliant, as they all are. Thanks for sharing with us.
