The Fantendo of the Opera is a fan-fic by Indi555. It is based on the classic play The Phantom of the Opera with Fantendo characters. I credit all the song lyrics to the original writer of the play.
The Stage of the Fantendo Opera House
(The contents of the opera house is being auctioned off. An Auctioneer, Porters, several fan characters bidding, and YoshiEgg Nook, now an old and wizened Tanooki.
The action commences with a blow from the AUCTlONEER's gavel)
Lot 665, ladies and gentlemen: a papier-mache musical box, in the shape of a barrel-organ. Attached, the figure of a ukiki in Persian robes playing the cymbals. This item, discovered in the vaults of the theatre, still in working order.
Porter (holding it up) Showing here. (He sets it in motion)
My I start at 50 Fantendollars? 100, then? 100 I am bid.
(the bidding continues. YoshiEgg eventually buys the box for 200 Fantendollars)
Sold, for 200 Fantendollars to the tanooki. Thank you, sir.
(The box is handed across to YE. He studies it, as attention focuses on him for a moment)
YE (quietly, half to himself, half to the box) Yup. (Attention returns to the Auctioneer, as he resumes)
Lot 666, then: a chandelier in pieces. Some of you may recall the strange affair of the Phantom of the Opera: a mystery never fully explained. We are told ladies and gentlemen, that this is the very chandelier which figures in the famous disaster. Our workshops have restored it so that we may get a hint of what it may look like when re- assembled. Perhaps we may frighten away the ghost of so many years ago with a little illumination, gentlemen?
(The Auctioneer switches on the chandelier There is an enormous flash, and the OVERTURE begins. During the overture the opera house is restored to its earlier grandeur. The chandelier immense and glittering, rises magically from the stage, finally hovering high above the stalls)
