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 )

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...


More...

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.

This so cries out for more, more more!

Especially the more obscure bits:

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 :)

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.

I want to bear your incredibly funny children. This was the best thing EVER.
pyro_wizzard From: pyro_wizzard Date: January 10th, 2005 01:48 pm (UTC) (Link)
YES!! That was so awsome! Especially since you are probably one of the only people I know who had read the book! YEAS!

I'm not going to lie, I actually really liked the movie. As in thought it was good and I absolutely must see it again--this version just made it infinitely better.

RAOUL: OMG SWORD! I KNEW I FORGOT SOMETHING!

At first I thought he was going to the bathroom. I mean, when you see him again he looks like he buckling his pants.

Hey, I liked the movie, too. But then, *everything* is funny to me.
