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.

You managed to send me into giggle fits for at LEAST half of the time I was watching this the second time. :)

HEHEHEHEHE! I totally meant to write this, you know, weeks ago, but ... so funny :D

And the Snowflake line still makes me giggle everytime I read it.

THE PHANTOM: *bursts into tears*

CHRISTINE: Awww! He’s so sensitive!

THE PHANTOM: *sniffle*

CHRISTINE: Why don’t you ever cry when I kiss you, Raoul?

RAOUL: What?

THE MOB [in the distance]: WE COME FOR YOU, PHANTOM!

THE PHANTOM: Go, both of you! Forget me! Be happy!

CHRISTINE: But you still have plenty of time to let him go or kill him or whatever—


CHRISTINE: And carry me off somewhere!


CHRISTINE: They’ll never find you in here! You could ravish me and everything and no one would be able to stop you. You could totally get away with it!


THE PHANTOM: No, no. The jig, she is up. Go with the man you love and be happy. Get out of here. Beat it. Scram.

RAOUL: Come on, Christine! Let’s go! I’ve got his gondola! Hurry!

CHRISTINE: Oh, fine.

This. Is. Brilliant. I appluad you! You're a genius. The name's Liadan. A pleasure to make your acquaintance... Can I put you on my friends list? Sorry...that sounded weird. Heh. Whatever. Incredible parody. I had to drink water to stop from laughing and my stomach is in so much pain now! Bravo!!!

CHRISTINE: He didn’t even recognize me! Sigh. We were total childhood sweethearts, and we used to play together and everything, and he used to call me—

MADAME GIRY: Christie?

MEG: Chrissy?


MEG: Chris?



Being John Malkovich, anyone? Hehehe.

I loved it, as usual. Especially as I'm a lover of the musical and a lover of the books, your review ROCKED.

Did the Room of Mirrors Raoul drop into look suspiciously like the torture chamber in miniature to anyone else?

OMG I'm dead. I'm just dead. Not in the least because your hidden credits say cleolinda.livejizzle. And "Pizzle a comment". OMG FUNNIST SHIT EVER.

I will add, for other folks passing by, that your comment refers to the http://sites.gizoogle.com/?url=http://www.livejournal.com/community/m15m/6231.html version of this parody. ; )

You made me late for my doctor's appointment and distracted me from my genetics essay! And it was worth it...

Phantom of the Opera in 15 minutes

I love this story! It is one of the few things that can make me smile a lot. Thank you Cleolina! *huggles*

Oh god, these 15-minute things of yours make me laugh so much! T_T <33

ROFL! I loved it! Everytime I see that scene with Raoul and Christine in the Chapel right before Don Juan, I laugh because I can only imagine Raoul singing:

"Christine, Christine, don't think that I don't care... (my addition) but get your ass out there and sing now!"

You have just rocked my world!

I know I don't even know you...And I don't even remember were I found this link (sometimes my brain malfunctions) but I just read this...and I have never laughed so hard in my entire life! I am a huge Phantom fan, and this totally made my day! You rock!

I just realized I never left a comment on this entry, and considering I've been carrying a printed copy of this around with me in a notebook for about a month, I figure I probably should. Wonderful, hilarious, and altogether brilliant. I still laugh every time I read it, and I've read it quite a few times by this point. You are clearly a goddess.

(And you also inspired this icon. ^.^ )

Aww, that's so cool! Glad you enjoyed it. : )

I've re-read this more times than I can remember, and it still makes me crease up! Thanks!
