A Lesson on IceSilence reigned over the Opera Populaire as I sat dismally at my well-used organ. Rehearsals had long since ended, and upon returning to my dank, underground abode, I had planned to attempt making progress on my opera. I was having no such luck, as my inspiration was somewhat lacking that particularly cold December evening. I searched my mind for the illusive notes that were required to completed the passionate duet between Don Juan and the innocent gypsy girlAminta. The fleeting times I had been able to visit Christine were probably instrumental in the problem. That old coot Madame Giry had been forcing all of the ballet rats to attend extra rehearsals for the annual masquerade ball. Afterwards, my angel was so exhausted that she could hardly stand, let alone participate in our nightly lesson. We had grown into the habit of having our lesson in the solitude of my home, so that we might make use of the organ.

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.
