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.

Quite possibly the best satire I've read in a long time. Very fun! I finally got around to watching the new movie. It's hard to believe I've gotten this far in life and not ever been exposed to it.

Keep it up! :)

*dies* you are my hero!!! *bows and starts worshipping Cleo* I first read your Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban in 15 minutes, and now this one and you are my goddess!!!

CHRISTINE: Hmm. Everyone’s dressed in black and and white and gold. I think my giant pink dress will blend in just fine, particularly if neither of us wear masks, even though we’re on the downlow.

RAOUL: Why must we sneak around like this, Christine?

CHRISTINE: Our engagement must be secret, Raoul! I know—I’ll hide the big sparkly ring in my cleavage! No one EVER looks there!

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


you put a monty python refrence in!!! *builds shrine to Cleo* nice job with the copyright thingy too...

Finally saw that movie tonight, just because I wanted to read this.

The movie was so-so, but this totally made it worth it :)

This was hysterical! I absolutely loved it! :D

My friend and I saw the show the other day, and she made me laugh by whispering, "Daddy loves you, Christine!" I tried so hard not to disturb the people around me.

This was absolutely brilliant. It's like you're MST3King the movie. I laughed nearly all the way through. I hope you don't mind this. I printed it off so my mom could read it because she doesn't have internet access. She said it was wonderful. You're incredibly gifted. *runs off to read 'Troy' and 'Hidalgo'*

P.S. Really liked the ending where Raoul had to drag Christine away. That's more believable, I think.

Said it before (probably multiple times) but I gotta say it again.

Brilliance! Sheer brilliance!

It still has me in stitches and I've read it like, 20 times.

And now onto 'constructive comments' or whatever.
- I adore how you've referred to both books and the musical and OTHER stories. You rock my socks.
- You need to "15minuteize" more movies I've seen - but that would mean you'd need to know which movies I've seen. Labyrinth could be cool.

Loved the SLASHITY and the STABBITY bits. But this...

[The Phantom is woefully playing with his monkey.]

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

I actually spit out what I was eating at the time! But I don't blame you for ruining my screen cause I'm still chuckling!

PS: How do I take icons, btw? I promise I'll credit.

Just save them to your computer like any other image, and go upload them at the user pictures page on LJ. : )
