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.

*wild cackling*

I just wanted to say THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!! I had to take breaks from reading this because I was laughing so hard...and probably because I was asphyxiating from stuffing my hoodie sleeve into my mouth so I didn't wake up my pissy brother and his pissier girlfriend at three in the morning. This m15m is the first time I've come across any of your sites and I can't wait to check out some more of your work!

everything I've read of yours so far (and I believe that's almost every m15m) has been utterly FANTASTIC!
Rock on!

Ok, I made a list of all the parts I loved on Word, and it took up an entire page, so I'll just say this:

THE PHANTOM: I built it all myself! And I bet you’d be impressed, if you weren’t a TOTAL SLUTBITCH WHORETRAMP.

That is my new favourite insult of ALL TIME! :D

There are no words for how much I love you.<3

Y'know what you should read? Masquerade by Terry Pratchett. It's pretty much a Discworld take on the Phantom of the Opera. It rocks.
From: fuyuhime28 Date: October 5th, 2007 10:15 pm (UTC) (Link)
Discworld is an extremely silly series of books which pretty much mocks through parallels everything from the postal service to Australia to Macbeth.

Added bonus: Greebo (a mangy, mean old cat who changes into an extremely handsome man, though he keeps his personality) in a black leather suit while in human form. Need I say more?

Wow. This is AMAZING. I laughed so hard!! Can I have your permission to post a link to this in my own LJ? I'd love to share it with my friends.

"If I were Perzhian, I would do it..."

Wah, Persian! I miss the Persian! He was such a cool character, what with his jade-green eyes and all.

HAHAHAHAHAHA! This was hilarious!

This was SO funny. I haven't laugh this hard in a while.

I'm adding this to my memories, if that is okay.

I can't help it, every time I read this one (or any of the others)...and the book, I just have to laugh. Most of the time hard enough to make myself cry.

Utter genius.
