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 )

Awww, it was written with affection. A lot of Phans--including some folks at Andrew Lloyd Webber's film company--seem to have enjoyed it.

Very, very funny. Because it's true?
More so than the creators would like, I suspect :)

Just popped in to say that this is the funniest thing I've read in a long time :D Now whenever I listen to the soundtrack, all I can think is, "INCREDIBLY '80S MUSIC: DUHHHHHH! DUNDUNDUNDUN DUHHHHHHH!"

Heheh. Wonderful.

Showed this to my best friend and we haven't stopped laughing over it since. All we have to do is look at each other and say "completely non-figurative way" and we both die laughing.

Bless you!

Oh my goodness. This was so good. This is one of the funniest phan phics I've ever read. The satire is perfect. :-) :-) :-) I was smiling the entire time as I read it, and now I'm still have a ridiculous grin on my face.

I think you would enjoy reading this fic too, satire from Meg's POV:

(this is not shameless plugging.. I guess it's promotion of someone else's fic I really liked as well??)

I had no idea livejournal comments could span so many pages.. never seen that before..

I read this and nearly couldn't breathe 'cause I was laughing so hard. I showed it to my sister and she had the same reaction. My mum also had the same reaction.

In conclusion, you are a genius. I can't wait for the book!

Affair hint or not?

Hilarious writing. Few things actually get me to laugh out loud but this did.

“THE PHANTOM: Christine? You came back?
CHRISTINE: I just wanted to give you the ring. You know. As a token. Of my eternal… affection. Yeah. “Affection.” And my phone number. And my forwarding address.
THE PHANTOM: Go, Christine! The mob is coming!
RAOUL [throwing Christine over his shoulder]: Oh, for the love of…!
CHRISTINE [shouting back to the Phantom]: Don’t be a stranger! “

I had developed a theory that Christine and the Phantom became lovers. I posted the longer version of this theory as a comment on your movie reaction post. I see with the above that you also were thinking affair at least for the funny if not seriously.
