Contemplations of The Phantom of the Opera Contemplations on the Phantom of the Opera legends.Contemplations of The Phantom of the Opera by Classically-DePunk
It is a certain fact that the majority of anyone who reads this, has no doubt, heard of the Phantom of the Opera.
Often parodied, and more often adapted, from juvenile books to being a staple concept for a filler episode in various television series, and even an out-of-print manga adaptation- it is a story that served for a general eeriness or for the premise of some unseen-at least to the characters-thief purloining various items or vandalizing an establishment and employing harassment through illusions.
There have been countless adaptations, from the iconic 1925 silent film, being the first adaptation of Gaston Leroux's novel, it has been altered and formed into anything from film to musicals to novels, to even an ice skating show.
However, the most popular, or most well-recognized incarnation of this legend, is the 1986 musical, composed by L

Of what meaning could this holy day hold for me?
Nothing. It was merely a day, a day marked as any other day.It meant nothing to me.
The day would pass the very same. Isolated below in this unreachable place I claim years ago as sanctuary. My sanctuary was my prison as well, with society being my jail keeper. I could not venture outside as others. No, if such a brazen act was committed, I surely would be captured and be kept in chains in a cage as the freak I am.
This holy day, people kept it by intoxication and hungering like dogs fro favors and trinkets of all sorts. Quite good of them to remember Christ's birth by ignoring the least of these, and gorging on the choicest of morsels, while donning on excess of clothing, then stumbling in their stupor to a church and feigning such ludicrous piety, muttering memorized prayers like the drone of a mill.
On the other side of society, people huddled in shacks comprised of remnants of planks ad rags, their substanc

For weeks, I had heard the whispers around Lincoln about a new exchange student from France. Everyone was ecstatic to meet him, though I must admit I wasn't too impressed. Yet I can remember it all perfectly.
The day he arrived, the exact moment I first saw him, I was; I suppose intrigued is the right word.
And the genius who designed it wears a mask. A mask? But what's behind it?
He wore this mask. It covered the whole right side of his face in smooth ivory. The other side of his face; well, I must admit I am still at a loss for words. Two bright green eyes that have the power to stare right into your soul,
Yet in his eyes, all the sadness of the world. Those pleading eyes that both threaten and adore.
set into a pale angelic face.
I felt foolish, Maggie. If you had only seen my face. I gawked, I will admit. Though not because of his mask; it was as though I couldn't see his mask. The other side of his face entranced me. And it was strange; I felt as though he could sense
Welcome to Rose-and-Nightingale, DA's club for fans of Erik/Christine!
How to Join
To join, look for the 'Join Our Group' button at the top of our page, and click on it. A little box will pop up, will a place to write a note. Write a reason why you'd like to join, and then hit submit. Then you've just got to wait for it to be approved, and you'll be an official group member!
How to Submit Art
There are two ways that you can submit art to our group: by adding it to our gallery, or by suggesting it for our favourites.
To suggest art for our favourites, just click on the 'Suggest a Fave' button, either on our main page or on our favourites gallery page. A box will appear that will let you pick a suggested deviation from your gallery, your favourites, or all of dA. Pick your suggestion, hit submit, and wait for it to be approved. You do not need to be a group member to suggest a favourite.
You do need to be a member to submit something to our actual gallery. The process to add to the gallery is the same as to suggest a favourite, except that you'll also have the option to submit a brand new deviation directly to the group's gallery, instead of just having to choose an existing deviation.
Submitted art should feature Erik (the Phantom) and Christine. There are other clubs that take submissions of general PotO art.
When submitting art to the group, please keep in mind that there are younger people around. So, please, nothing above PG-13. Please don't submit photomanipulations that use promotional pictures or movie stills (except the Lon Chaney version, which is public domain), as they are against dA's rules. We reserve the right to reject any submitted art if we feel it does not fit with the ideals of the group.
Please only submit up to the first three chapters of multi-chapter fanfics.
There isn't currently a set limit for how much you can submit at a time, but please try to keep it within reason.
And, obviously, do not submit someone's art other than your own.
