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 )

INCREDIBLY '80S MUSIC: DUHHHHHH! DUNDUNDUNDUN DUHHHHHHH!

I almost spit my milk out at my monitor at this point. Hahah. Thanks so much for writing another one of these wonderful parodies. I'm a huge fan of your HP3 one (I went to the theater and recited the whole thing with friends, oops), and now a huge fan of this one, as well. So fantastic.

Looking forward to your book. <3

You know, I actually forgot that line and had to go back and put it in--I think it was one of the very last things I added before I posted. (And 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 was great. My favorite parts:

[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!

....

[The Phantom is woefully playing with his monkey.]

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

UGLY MONKEY BOX: OH SNAP. *ching*
Bwah!
What's sad is no matter how bad this movie is, I still have to go and see it. My addiction to bad movie musicals remains unending...

I love your icon...but what does the font say?
From: cute__nessie Date: January 9th, 2005 09:59 pm (UTC) (Link)
Not to mention that, you know... The Phantom was all THAT great of a singer...and although he is young, he obviously started his Lolita complex -- that, as he is young, really ISN'T a Lolita complex -- when Christine was but a little tike...or at least before she was 16. Or if he WAS old, he obviously lived longer than Christine.

Weird possibly-immortal Erik.

*sigh* So many book rapes in this movie. But this was hilarious! Go you!
