Welcome to the Phantom of the Opera Thread v2.0! Here in our new home, users can discuss all aspects of Phantom of the Opera, from the 2004 movie, to the original novel, and every other adaptation, including the famous Andrew Lloyd Webber musical.

So remember to not choose Box 5, or you may just end up like Joseph Buquet!

And now, our Pledge of Phan Allegiance (written by toasterphantom):
I pledge allegiance
To the opera house
Underneath which Erik lives
And to the punjab
With which he kills
One nation
Under Erik
With punjabbing and music
For all

exclaim Q&A

Why a new thread?

Our old, original thread, created by Alis in Wonderland was moved to the Friends Chat because of it excessive offtopic chatter. We, the regulars, were upset, and voted to make a new thread in our original home forum to continue to spread the PotO love.

Why PotO?

Why ANYTHING, for that matter? We love the story of the disfigured genius who has a doomed love with a singer.

So what came first, the book or the musical?

The Book. The original novel was by GASTON LEROUX and was published in 1910 (or 1911, depending on your source) in France. Andrew Lloyd Webber's musical, not even the first musical adaptation mind you, was written and staged in the later 1980s. Biiig year difference.

Anymore questions, feel free to PM me or ask them in the thread! heart

exclaim BLACK LIST

None yet, thank Erik.


I think one of the worst would be if Christine becomes a hired assasin and Erik and her go out to kill people and make out on the job. Then they are hired to kill raoul and refuse for Christine's sensitive singing non-assasin side. So they become fugitives from the forces of evil who wanted raoul dead and flee to america. Where they become cowboys.

Then Christine is abducted by aliens. Raoul and Erik are picked up by a space ship right before the earth is destroyed to make way for an intergellactic highway a Hitchhikers guide to the galixy. Then the khanum is after them for whatever reason and they finally find christine. Then they grab lunch and a depressed robot named Nadir before returning to the newly rebuilt earth being marginally more mistrustful of mice.

Then they start a chain of malls that have danceing singing cooking architecture beauty animal and everything else remotely Erik/Christine/Raoulish and lack of punctuation shops. Then they all live happily ever after right after Raoul/Christine, Erik/Nadir, Meg/Jammes, and Andre/Firmin get together. In all sorts of ways. And we find out why Erik is glad be bought the 'double wide' coffin. XD

*breaths* THE END.

o.o Would he be happy about a rather large and insane group of people who come to this place for many hours a day to talk about him and other relating things?
Bleeding Art's avatar

Obsessive Kitten

I think he might be happy. Though I'm not sure he'd like if any of them squealed.

True. Those are the ones you have to avoid.

Hmn. I know, let's have a dumb topic today. XD

Which character would Erik most like go gay for/use as a substitute Christine?

Nadir I think.

Raoul would be out of the question...
Bleeding Art's avatar

Obsessive Kitten

Though, I dunno. Erik might rape Raoul just as some perverse revenge.

Well, yeah. Then Raoul would kill himself due to being damaged forever and Christine would follow him, then what?
Bleeding Art's avatar

Obsessive Kitten

Then he'd either grab The Persian or the managers.
New thread!

I still blame Erik for my friend's vanishing sweatshirt, however. XD
