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.

Ok, my favorite part is definitely:

THE PHANTOM: [writing music]: Mornin’.

[She goes over to the Phantom and touches his face and he seems to dig it.]

CHRISTINE: So, I’m gonna take your mask off.


CHRISTINE: Peeling it off as we speak.

THE PHANTOM: Ten-four.

CHRISTINE: It’s totally coming off.

THE PHANTOM: Sure, have a party.

THE MASK: *comes off*

*can't. stop. laughing.*

Hey, uh, where'd the picture in your icon come from? Because it's yummy. I've seen several versions of it, different angles and stuff, but never that exact one.

Heee. I just wanted to say that you rock for all eternity, because my mom and I laughed crazily at this last night. I especially liked Carlotta's lines and the usage of OH SNAP, though everything was awesome beyond reason.

*bows down* I will seriously be one of the first in the world, or America, or my state, or my city, or something, to buy your book. *bookmarks*

I've been a fan of your godly Movies in 15 Minutes since PoA, and still <3 them muchly. As well as your Lost parodies.

I think I can safely say you. Are. AWESOME.

::insert the million, getting-to-point exclamation points here::

I added you to the friend...communtawhat...thing so I could keep up with the m15m. And congradulations on the book deal =D.

Too lazy to go to the whole "THIS PART WAS GREATER THAN THE REST!!!", so I repeat...


Thank you for making my day.

[The Phantom is woefully playing with his monkey.]

UGLY MONKEY BOX: GOD, not like THAT, you pervs.

Yes. Yes, I did think of it that way and I laughed out loud. This was great! <3

Okay, if I hadn't already been slayed by "NOBODY EXPECTS ME!", this definitely would have done it. Great, great stuff ^_^ And word on the Meatloaf-yness of that bit towards the beginning ^_^

Uh yeah, this was pretty much brilliant. It made my day.

As if Joel Schumacher movies weren't funny enough on their own...
