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 )

Re: *bows before you*

Hee! No, I'm just a grad student/aspiring writer. I was fortunate enough to get a book contract off the strength of "Troy in 15 Minutes" last summer, so that's what I'm working on now. Glad you enjoyed it! : )

He takes her to an underground lair looking suspiciously ripped off the set for “I Would Do Anything For Love (But I Can’t Remember the Rest of This Title).”

XD Brilliant and witty. :) I particularly loved the references to the book as well. *g*

This was funny. I enjoyed it alot~ ;P I never did understand the whole, "my hand at the level of my eyes" stuff. It didn't even do anything. O_o? Whatever.

Well, in theory, if you did it right, he'd lasso you around the neck but because you'd have your hand in front of your face, the rope would also go around your arm, and therefore the rope couldn't choke you to death. The whole thing would have been much more effective if people would tell folks WHY they needed to do it.

(Thanks!)

[Suddenly, the lights drop and the music goes evil and the Phantom enters dressed as the Red Death, or the Spanish Inquisition, or something.]

THE PHANTOM: NO ONE EVER EXPECTS ME!


that made my day beyond belief. I never would have expected anybody to be able to combine Phantom and Monty Python in such a brilliant sort of way.

the whole thing totally cracked me up. I'll probably be giggling in my sleep because of it.

This one won't be in it, but there will be a book--my publisher's already asking why it's so late. ; )

Fell off my chair

I found the link to this on the EtiquetteHell forum. I don't think I've ever laughed so hard at a movie synopsis in my life. Thusly, I had to pass it long to my friends via a link in my LJ.

I'm off to read more M15m's.

This was AWESOME!

Thank you so much for posting this, I loved it. I also thought it was brilliant that you put your copyright info in between the lines in white text. My favorite line: "FIRMIN: No panicking and no refunds! What, are you going to let a little murder get in the way of your high culture? SIT BACK DOWN!"

Utter genius! You rock!
