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.

XD Aw, fantastic. As usual.

You should try and get all of your fifteen minute movies published in a big collection. ^_^

I just got back from seeing it. So I had to read it in 15 minutes as well. It was fantabulous! I want a completely lusty, seductive, gourgeous phantom living in my basement... *pouts* Christine just has to have all of them... XD

Yes yes yes yes yes!

Okay, so I basically laughed until I cried and made these strange choking noises because I was trying to laugh silently, so my roommate probably thinks I'm mental, but I don't care because that was so GOOD!

I also have a question--was your "Moo Ha Ha" taken from the Shoebox Project, or am I being a delusional fangirl and looking for connections that aren't there?

Re: Yes yes yes yes yes!

Actually, I got it from bibliotech--I had been writing it as "MUAHAHAHA," but I liked "MOO HA HA" better after I saw her use it in regular journal entries/comments. I have no idea where she got it from.

(What's the Shoebox Project?)

I wrote my first ever Slash based on your m15m. Part one at least. Thanks for the inspiration.

Too funny! Even though I am a Phan from way back, this piece had me laughing so hard that I was crying! Kudos on such a hilarious bit!

Absolutely wonderful! I couldn't stop laughing. ^_^

Thanks so much! I was slightly disappointed by the movie (too theatrical, no effort to actually *translate* it to the screen... but that's off topic) but this made it all worth it! You're hilarious, now I can't stop saying HOR & I KEEL YOU!
(Have you considered doing "The Princess Bride")? *wink**wink*

What in the world could I possibly add to that movie, which is one of the greatest ever made? : )

Brilliance. Sheer and utter brilliance.

haha I should totally be sleeping right now. A friend linked to this. Wonderfully hilarious. I'm absolutely terrified of seeing the movie because I'm afraid it will ruin everything I love about the musical. ALW has a horrible habit of ruining everything he creates.
Now I'm terrified of going to see it because I'm afraid I'm going to laugh through the entire thing. ^_^
