Princess Academy- Book Review

Hullo, hullo! We’re making another review! Just a statement, I just scrolled through almost two months’ worth of posts to get to this because I couldn’t remember my format. Good job, self. Anyway, time to review and listen to showtunes. What are we reviewing today? Well, in case you didn’t look at the title, we’re reviewing the book Princess Academy!

Title: Princess Academy

Author: Shannon Hale

Genre: Fantasy

Synopsis:

Miri lives on a mountain where, for generations, her ancestors have quarried stone and lived a simple life. Then word comes that the king’s priests have divined her small village the home of the future princess. In a year’s time, the prince himself will come and choose his bride from among the girls of the village. The king’s ministers set up an academy on the mountain, and every teenage girl must attend and learn how to become a princess.

Miri soon finds herself confronted with a harsh academy mistress, bitter competition among the girls, and her own conflicting desires to be chosen and win the heart of her childhood best friend. But when bandits seek out the academy to kidnap the future princess, Miri must rally the girls together and use a power unique to the mountain dwellers to save herself and her classmates.

Characters: Miri Larendaughter, Marda Larendaughter, Laren, Peder, Olana, Os, Prince Steffan, Britta, Katar, Liana, Bena, Gerti, Esa, Frid, Helta, the other Academy girls (too lazy to list them nor do I remember them all), Doter, Dan, Dogface, other bandits

Theme: The themes of Princess Academy are marriage, family, education, and friendship.

LEESE’S THOUGHTS:

Overall, Princess Academy was a very good book. It was a bit sluggish in the beginning, but soon picked up. However, when the bandits came to the academy, I found the writing confusing because I am used to reading quickly during action because the pure franticness gets to me.

The characters, on the other hand, were some of the most lovable characters from anything I’d ever read. Miri was strong, intelligent, and funny. Britta was so shy and adorable it was impossible to dislike her. Katar, well, you love to hate Katar. Even Olana found her way into my heart, surprisingly enough. They were all so cute!

You’ll fall in love with Princess Academy very quickly. Being a thirteen year old, people probably thought I was too old to read this book. Well, they were wrong. No one is ever too old to read this amazing novel by Shannon Hale. How it didn’t win the Newbery it was nominated for I will never know.

Recommended for: Fantasy fans, girls, people who don’t mind reading something written for children, people who want strong female heroines.

My rating: 4/5 stars

Well, that’s all for this review! Keep watch for my next review!

Believer Song Analysis- Lyric by Lyric

Okay, so a few days ago, Imagine Dragons dropped a new song. Naturally, I’ve already spam-listened to it and memorized the first part of the song. You can listen to it here. In fact, I request that you do. Anyway, today, we’ll be analyzing the lyrics with what I think they mean!

First things first- They want to get things started off right. This is the first thing they’re saying.

I’ma say all the words inside my head- He’s going to finally speak his mind and say what he was thinking.

I’m fired up and tired of the way that things have been, oh-ooh. The way that things have been.- He’s angry because no one paid him any attention or listened to him, so he’s ready to finally speak his mind.

Second things second- this is the second part of the song.

Don’t you tell me what you think that I can be- He doesn’t want other people trying to define him. He wants to be who he is because he decided, not someone else.

I’m the one at the sail, I’m the master of my sea. The master of my sea- I’m the only one who can control myself.

I was broken from a young age- Something went wrong in his home life, so he felt broken.

Taking my soul into the masses- Okay, I’m not entirely sure here, but in my brain, it means that he is repenting from his sins.

Write down my poems for the few- No one listened to him, but for those who did, he’s writing things down.

That looked at me, shook to me, feeling me- This sort of goes hand in hand with the previous lyric. The few mentioned above are the people who finally paid attention to him.

Singing from heartache from the pain- These things went into the songs or poems that he wrote and he sort of personifies them when he sings.

Take up my message from the veins- He wants people to listen to him.

Speaking my lesson from the brain- He was speaking his mind for once in his life.

Seeing the beauty through the pain!- He can see beauty underneath a person’s exterior because you don’t know what sorts of pain they’d been through.

You made me a, you made me a believer, believer- This lyric could mean that he seeked (sook? I don’t know.) God during a time of hardship and the pain brought him closer to God.

You break me down, you build me up, believer, believer- That’s what the pain did, but it still made him into a believer.

I let the bullets fly, oh let them rain- He doesn’t care anymore if he dies. He embraces death.

My luck, my love, my God, they came from pain- The pain gave him luck, he found love during pain, and he found God during pain.

You made me a, you made me a believer, believer- Like I said, pain made him believe in God.

Third things third- The third thing he wants to say.

Send a prayer to the ones up above- He is praying to God to help him through this.

All the hate that you’ve heard has turned your spirit to a dove- Okay, so I did a bit of research here, and I noticed that people say that enduring through this has made him graceful and peaceful. So maybe this means that he is now at peace with the things in his life.

I was choking in the crowd- He wanted to get away from all the people and just be alone for a while.

Living my brain up in the cloud- His own thoughts are hurting him and bringing him down.

Falling like ashes to the ground- This could be a metaphor for his life falling around him, or his thoughts bringing him down, sending him falling like ashes to the ground.

Hoping my feelings, they would drown: He’s in a war against himself by this point. He wants to conceal his feelings from himself since his feelings are making him miserable.

But they never did, ever lived, ebbing and flowing- But he couldn’t conceal his feelings and they came and went, still making him feel bad about himself.

Inhibited, limited- His feelings limited him, keeping him from leaving his comfort zone.

Till it broke up and rained down. It rained down like- Suddenly, everything just started crumbling around him.

[Chorus]

Last things last- This is the last thing he wants to say.

By the grace of the fire and the flames-Perhaps, just perhaps, this is talking about how God appeared to the Israelites in a pillar of fire. And this is another metaphor for finding God again.

You’re the face of the future, the blood in my veins. The blood in my veins- God gives him life and the strength to keep on moving.

[Insert “But they never did, ever lived, ebbing and flowing” here]

[Chorus]

And that’s all of Believer by Imagine Dragons! I hope you enjoyed my song analysis and I may be doing more of these in the future!

 

Phantom of the Opera Live Blog

I’m about due for this, aren’t I? I’m starting it a bit late, about five minutes into the movie. Raoul has just decided that he’s keeping the rehearsal from going on and Christine is all “Oh, he didn’t know that I existed!” That’s for the better, sweetie. Anyway, let’s get this started!

That’s for the best! 

Beautiful dancing. 

You should take pride.

Weird, Andre.

Christine has skillz. 

Very promising. 

Yes relation.

HANNIBAL! 

That’s good.

You’re in the way. 

Carlotta please. 

ELEPHANT

We studied Hannibal in school.

Whoop, he’s too short.

There he goes.

Note I can’t hit.

Shut up, Carlotta.

Oh dear. She’s mad.

Oh dear. 

What doggy? Why doggy?

Grovel!

Monsieur Reyer needs better. 

“I ate my hat.” 

Oh dear. 

Carlotta go home. 

Reyer is so angry.

My health. 

I’d retire if I was working with Carlotta.

THINK OF MEEE

Earplugs. I should get some. For Carlotta. 

SHADOW! 

Ouch.

THERE IT GOES!

Angry screech from Meg. 

Go Phantom!

Well no poop Sherlock.

You are bad at your job.

Letter! 

That stamp.

These things do happen!

I have that speech memorized.

How do you handle her, Piangi? 

Australia. 

Sure she will.

That’s what you think. 

It is his.

Box five empty. 

Salary. Otherwise he can’t get groceries. 

The Vicomte is rich.

DON’T RIP THAT LETTER

Reyer is dead.

It’s okay. We don’t need a Carlotta.

Christine is just like wut

THE PHANTOM DUH

His name be Erik.

Fair nuff.

Poor girl.

She’s such a good singer!!

I can sing most of this song from memory. 

Meg is proud. 

Full orchestra explosion. 

That is a full house. They don’t lie.

That’s a bad metaphor. The sea is changing. 

Think of Me is like one of my favorites. 

Horses? Why? 

Meg is either proud or jelly.

Andre and Firmin are proud.

DOWN ONCE MORE THROUGH THE VENT

Aww, Phantomy friend!

Ugh. It’s a human headache. 

YOU DON’T BRAVO MID SONG YOU STUPIDHEAD!

I wish she didn’t remember you. 

I have immense dislike for Raoul.

Bleh. 

Oh, I can’t sing this cadenza. Believe me, I try.

Those are some legit earrings. 

High note!

Darn those high notes. 

STANDING OVATION!

I would clap if I wasn’t typing. 

NO DRINKING!

Meg is proud.

Does adding an a to the end make it sound more professional.

WHAT IS THIS SCENE?

Creepy heads. 

So many people. 

Aww, no one saw Meg. 

Andre, quit flirting.

RAMIN!

BRAVA! BRAVA! BRAVISSIMA! 

Christine, Christine, Christine.

Meg has such a great voice. 

Friendship goals (until LND)

THE FREAKING PHANTOM!

Aww, baby Christine!

She was so adorable!

Not that Emmy isn’t a cinnamon roll. 

Because she is.

Aww, sadness. 

An angel of music! 

Meg is a nonbeliever. 

Actually, my friend said “no, Christine, you’re so gullible, that’s not the ghost of your dead dad.”

NOW AS I SING I CAN SENSE HIM!

Christine you must have been dreaming. Stories like this can’t come true. Christine you’re talking in riddles. And it’s not like you! 

Where are they going and why? 

This part is hard to sing alone. 

So much transitioning. 

How is that a bad thing? 

She’s fine. 

BUQUET YOU CREEPER!

Madame Giry is annoyed. 

He is pleased. That’s good. 

Ugh.

OOH HE GOT A GIRY DEATH GLARE!

Little Lotte aka cute but GO HOME RAOUL

Or of chocolates?

DON’T BE A NONBELIEVER STOP THINKING SHE’S GULLIBLE! 

No Raoul. The angel of music is very strict.

WHY DON’T YOU LISTEN

Two minutes is not enough time to change out of that type of dress.

WHOAAAA 

Everything darkens…

Majestic. 

LOVE IS AN OPEN MIRROR!! 

Insolent boy! This slave of fashion!

Agreed, buddy. 

Honestly, this man’s voice puts me in a trance. 

Aww, Erik!

He’s a fluffball. 

I AM THERE INSIDE! 

OH MY GOSH THIS IS THE MOST MAGICAL THING! 

I want the Phantom to come through my mirror. 

This is so beautiful. 

Get ready for the blaring.

GO AWAY RAOUL! 

SHE’S DOING VENTRILOQUISM!

Here goes…

BUM 

BUM BUM BUM BUM BUM!

The Phantom is so awesome.

I’m singing. 

You can’t hear it, but I am. 

That’s a man bun.

Why does he have a horse?

My friend and I sang this together and tried to drag her Phantom-hating brother into it. He didn’t listen. But I was filling out a form and she just kneels down, offers me her hand, and goes “In sleep he sang to me” and it escalated from there. 

I wanna ride the boat. 

I’m not even gonna try high notes. 

SMOULDER!

The same friend I talked about earlier can hit all the high notes. 

So many candles…good thing there’s a lake otherwise Erik would light something on fire. 

DRAMATIC CAPE FLOURISH!

So enchanting. How do people hate Gerry? I prefer Ramin, but still! 

Floof! I want to hug the Phantom. He wouldn’t appreciate it, but idc. 

MUSIC OF THE NIIIIIIIIIGGGGGGHHHHHTTT! 

This song gives me feels. Idk why. 

Christine is so happy.

AND HERE YOU HAVE A VIEW OF MY BURNING OBSESSION! 

Oh that’s a mini chandelier. 

So many candles. 

HOW DID HE RECORD MOTN ON HIS FIRST DAY ON SET? HOW? 

I can hold that note when not in awe of the Phantom’s beauty.

NOW…KISS! 

LEAVE ALL THOUGHTS OF THE LIFE YOU KNEW BEFORE! 

WOW POWER NOTE! 

Oh dear…

The pose is so awkward…

What was the point of this? ALW, why? 

That’s gonna be amusing to see live. 

DON’T DO IT

ERIK NO

NO 

NO 

NO

NO

YOU STUPID

WHY DID YOU THINK SHE’D APPRECIATE THAT

At least he made sure she didn’t hit the floor and die. 

Why is that bed shaped like some sort of dove-swan? 

The fact the doll was actually Emmy standing completely still gives me a new form of appreciation for her. 

Meg don’t do it.

No. 

This scene made my friend think the Phantom ate rats. More than she already did. Long story. 

Slidy mirror! 

Single red rose…

Much less enchanting with no candles.

No, closed captioning, that wasn’t a scream, that was a gasp.

MADAME GIRY! HERE TO SAVE HER CHILD!

Ew Joseph Buquet. 

This is offensive to the Phantom. 

That’s a description of Leroux-Phantom. 

THAT’S A NOOSE ARE YOU TRYING TO HANG RANDOM GIRL #2? 

OWN HIM MADAME GIRY! 

BLAM!

Creepy music box. 

Christine is confuzzled. 

I REMEMBER THERE WAS MIST! 

This is such a pretty song. 

Look, the boat! 

Emmy looks so pretty in that shot. 

Good question.

THAT IS A MAN BUN! 

Whoop, rage time. 

This scene made me fling my headphones when I was lip-syncing. 

FIRE HAZARD, ERIK! 

Stranger Than You Dreamt It is so awesome. 

Think of Me? 

Just hug him. He’ll feel better. 

DOLL

That’s what the Phandom has done. We see the man behind the monster. I do at least. 

He feels so bad. 

I think this gestures speaks for itself.

MEH THEY DON’T MATTER.

Seriously, how did Madame Giry live this long? Is she immortal? Because if Raoul is old and crinkly, she should probably be dead. 

Why must they zoom in on his eye? 

KING GEORGE!

Mystery of soprano’s flight!

Gossip’s worth its weight in gold! 

Have a scandal and you’re sure to have a hit!

Singing Notes by yourself is confusing. 

No one was upset. 

AGREED ERIK!

Give him his grocery money. Although he’ll just spend it on candles. 

O dot G. 

She left the hair products, you’ll be fine. 

Written! *dirty glares from Grammar Nazis*

Fair nuff.

OH NO SHE’S BACK

BACK IN MORE PINK

CARLOTTA IS SECRETLY UMBRIDGE!

Why is there a poodle?

Far too many notes for my taste!

No! 

Others. 

Amiable? Yeah, sure. Well, for you, it’s amiable. 

Why does he have a mini stage? I’m on your side, buddy. But you need to NOT let Christine see that. 

That’s weird.

Those are nice envelopes. 

THAT SEAL IS GOALS OKAY

O dot G.

Carlotta rage. 

*trying to sing this part of Notes by myself* *fails because Italian*

She’s angry.

Miss Daae? Could you please give this to Miss Daae? 

Would you not rather have your precious little ingenue? 

No they don’t. 

Piangi twirl.

This is such a pretty song but Carlotta annoys me. 

It’s also impossible by yourself. 

She can. 

Corset. 

Leading ladies are a trial. 

I can’t sing this song alone. 

FALLING DRESS!

He wasn’t. 

For once Christine didn’t join. 

And Les Mis says One Day More is hard. 

Overture to Il Muto! 

RAOUL GET OUT OF BOX FIVE

Fancy Meg. 

His Lordship is a laughingstock!

Shame, shame, shame. 

Christine’s face though.

Random wood block guy. 

Piangi, what are you wearing? 

Oh my. 

Scrap metal. 

What is going on? 

Erik is displeased. 

POOR FOOL HE MAKES ME LAUGH! 

PHANTOMMMMMMMM!

He’s here, the Phantom of the Opera. 

It’s him

Your part is silent, little toad!

Perhaps it is you who are the toad. 

Angry screech.

Italian. 

HURRRRRR!

Oh dear. 

She failed. 

See? Even grown women cry for their mom. 

I want to be that guy if we ever perform Phantom at school. 

Raoul disapproves. 

Reyer is lost. 

Oh he’s fired. 

Uh oh. 

Sheep? 

Christine is concerned. 

You can run but he’ll catch you!

Sheep malfunction.

Bye bye Buquet. 

Yikes! 

But he did do some mean things so…

Cape!

REMAIN IN YOUR SEATS MY BUTT!

We can’t go back there!

Forget this waking nightmare!

QUIT LYING

DING DONG, YOU ARE WRONG!

Oh hush, it’s not that bad. 

Aww, she has the rose!

Raoul feels betrayed and rightly so. She cares more about him than you. 

DING DONG YOU ARE WRONG!

He’s right there, dearie. 

Ugh. 

I like this song but ugh Raoul. 

QUIT SNIFFING HER HAIR THAT MAKES ME SO UNCOMFORTABLE

GOSH IT’S PHANTOM OF THE AWKWARD ALL OVER AGAIN

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

NOT THE ROSE

My best friend and I once sang All I Ask of You together. It was fun. Then i tried to jump on a shelf while singing the reprise. 

That’s the Phantom’s job. 

THE PHANTOM ALREADY LOVES YOU EVERY WAKING MOMENT! HECK, HE LOVES YOU EVERY SLEEPING MOMENT TOO!

I feel so bad for Erik in this song. All the things Christine wants Raoul to do, he already does. 

HE’S SMELLING HER HAIR AGAIN!

Oh dear. 

POOR PHANTOM AWW POOR BABY!

Push him off the edge of the roof. (No don’t)

STOP TRYING TO RECREATE THE MOTN POSE YOU CAN’T 

AND YOU MAKE IT AWKWARD BY SMELLING HER HAIR

Height difference? Wow.

PLEASE DON’T

CUE MY BEST FRIEND THROWING THINGS ACROSS MY ROOM 

STAHPP

NO MORE

YOU BROKE THE PHANTOM’S HEART 

OH GOSH

SADNESS TIME

She never said I love you so there!

This is very rude of the “happy couple”

Oh no. Oh no. Oh no. 

RIP my heart. 

Don’t be sad!

No! See what you’ve done!

HE’S CRYING

BRO

THAT’S RUDE

YOU BROKE HIS HEART

I MIGHT OR MIGHT NOT BE CLOSE TO CRYING

*hugs Erik*

Uh oh. He’s mad.

LOOK WHAT YOU DONE DID!

Raoul will curse that day, not Christine.

Plummet! 

Back to flashbacks. 

Swarovski!

That couple looked like Raoul and Christine! But it wasn’t. 

DEEEEEAAAAAARRR ANDRE WHAT A SPLENDID PARTY! THE PROLOGUE TO A BRIGHT NEW YEAR! 

Why is he a rooster? 

MASQUERADE!

I want to be in this scene so badly. 

Why did they throw a masked ball if the Phantom wears a mask? 

I love this song. 

And what a masquerade!

Ew. 

WHAT IS WITH THE PONYTAIL? 

Christine looks gorgeous though. 

Please, let’s argue. 

WHAT THE FRICK IS RAOUL WEARING

Oh dear. Alcohol. 

The instrumental here is so pretty. 

SO MUCH FOR SECRET, HUH? 

My new hobby is going to be learning the Masquerade choreography. 

OVERTURE

I want an overture. 

Christine is in awe of the Phantom’s awesomeness. 

WHAT ARE THOSEE

Why so silent? 

I once started a conversation like this. 

I need to carry around a sword. 

Though I think that’s a rapier.  

I just realized how long it’s been since I’ve heard this edition of Why So Silent. 

Raoul just kinda bailed. He sucks at this whole boyfriend thing.

RETURN TO HIM

THAT’S THE MELODY OF LEARN TO BE LONELY

He’s back with a sword. 

THEY SHOULD’VE KISSED THERE

DON’T GO DOWN THERE YOU IDIOT 

THIS IS WHY I DON’T LIKE YOU

YOU AIN’T TOO BRIGHT

AND YOU HATE THE PHANTOM. 

Oh this scene makes me sad. 

Nice lamp. 

How many years? 

Phantom is probably at least seven years younger than Madame Giry. 

Creepy. 

DON’T CALL HIM THE DEVIL’S CHILD!

“Is Raoul in there?”- Adanessa 2017

Aww, poor baby. 

WHY DO YOU TORTURE HIM JUST FOR MONEY? 

Young Madame Giry was really pretty. 

Murder!

Murder!

Run! Run! Run!

Nice place you got there. 

He is a genius. 

Flashback again. 

BENEATH A MOONLESS SKYYY! 

That song gives me life. 

THAT’S SCARY RAOUL 

AND YOU THINK THE PHANTOM WAS STALKY! 

DON’T BARGE INTO GIRLS’ DORMS

To my father’s grave, please. 

Phantomy friend!

She gone. 

Not near as cool as when Legolas jumped on a horse. 

See? You love him! 

Is that Cesar? From the book? 

Oh, this song depresses me. 

This rendition of Little Lotte is sad. At least, the way they set it. 

I like this better spoken rather than sung. 

This song is so out of my vocal range. 

Oh, sadness. 

This musical is an emotional rollercoaster. 

Is she lost? 

Or is she just walking super slow? 

Why can’t the past just die? 

Good question. 

Oh, tears. 

Teach me to live!

The power in this is so moving. 

Oh, sadness. 

Rising note I can’t hit. 

WANDERING CHILD YES YES YES! 

Wandering child! So lost, so helpless! 

Oh, Phantom. Your voice enchants me. 

 Friend or Phantom? Phantom is friend. 

So beautiful! So beautiful! 

Game of Thrones?

THE SOUL OBEYS!

True beauty is right. *faints*

I love the Phantom’s voice. 

RAOUL REALLY

BLEH

Rage time. 

Christine should’ve intervened. 

Get shrekt. 

Legit fighting skills. 

Phantom vs Aragorn fight anyone? Aragorn would win.

Raoul down! 

Skull? 

SEE SHE CARES ABOUT HIM!

Angry Phantom. Oh dear. 

Cape flourish. 

No war. 

The rhythm in We Have All Been Blind is so awesome. 

His reign will continue. 

Hup. Hup. Hup.

You good Christine? 

Don’t be frightened. 

Is that a bad thing? 

And he would too let you go! 

LIKE I SAID, THAT’S NOT A BAD THING!

I’d go with the Phantom

Alhtough, if I had to choose between going with him or going to Middle-earth, Middle-earth all the way. 

He’s stealing your woman. 

I love Twisted Every Way, honestly. 

No. You can’t. 

He probably feels bad for killing. 

HE DOESN’T MURDER ALL THAT’S GOOD. 

My friend and I sing this in math and get dirty looks from our teacher who hates Phantom. 

If you smell her hair again I will personally hurt you. 

PRIMA DONNA MELODY!

So legit. 

Me every day “Let my opera begin!” 

Don Juan time!

GET. OUT. OF. BOX. FIVE. 

This song concerns me. 

The costumes are gorgeous though. 

I watched this with my dad and it was strange. 

LEESE IS CONCERNED. 

This is one of those songs I never sing aloud. 

Meg’s costume is the best. 

Piangi, what are you wearing? 

Quaff? 

Ooh, weird. 

CHRISTINE YOU LOOK GORGEOUS HUNNY

Hahahahaha!

He gone. 

No thoughts within her head but thoughts of joy! No dreams within her heart but dreams of love! 

What does Passarino mean? 

THIS SONG IS SO AWESOME BUT CONCERNS ME

Christine is just kinda “Oh dear.” 

She looks happy though. 

Maybe it’s because she doesn’t have to perform this song with Piangi anymore. 

That would be weird. 

Decided. 

WHAT IS WITH THE CAPE FLOURISHES. 

Past the point of no return! 

Concerning lyrics! 

Ramin’s version of this song is so good. 

I used to be concerned by this song. Still am. But less so.

The fact Erik wrote this thinking of Christine concerns me. 

Raoul is disgusted. 

So beautiful. 

If she didn’t want to perform, she could’ve left. 

Raoul is angry. 

This line concerns my friend. 

“She loves Raoul rite”

“That’s debatable.” 

^^Legit exchange. I said that’s debatable. 

Random staircase. 

CHRISTINE YOU ARE ONLY SIXTEEN-ISH.

YOU SHOULD’NT HAVE THESE THOUGHTS. 

He shed the cape. 

THE BRIDGE IS CROSSED SO STAND AND WATCH IT BURN!

We brought the pose back. Oh dear. 

Raoul is angry again. 

Oh this part makes me sad. It’s how he changes the lyrics to want rather than need. Because no one hsa ever wanted him there. 

Now…KISS!

She looks so happy. 

BAD CHRISTINE

HE’S ANGRY NOW.

She still loves you, Erik. 

Bye bye chandelier. 

They gone.

And it was such a nice chandelier too.

Shame. 

Sorry, Carlotta. 

Ruined? Very much so. 

DON’T SEND HER BACK INTO THE BUILDING. 

I sing this while going down staircases. 

Power note. 

It’s not THAT bad.

He is such a sad soul.

Kiss! 

Random harmonizing. 

Bye, Madame Giry.

He gone.

Bye bye.

How will this work onstage? 

He’s gonna drown.

If only. 

Jk I don’t want him dead…just to leave Christine alone. 

Did she willingly put on the dress?

Awkward…

There is no poison. She loves you. 

Aww, poor fluffball.

there went my heart. 

AWWWWWWWWWW!!!

Heartbroken again.

I love how he says this line.

So does he!

He loves her too!

That’s sad. 

YEAH! YOUR SINS!

This is concerning. 

That’s a bit of overkill with all those ropes. 

THIS IS THE POINT OF NO RETURN! 

This is just acting. Sheloves him really.

Raoul seems so selfish here. 

He’s all “Oh, I failed!” 

SEND HIM TO HIS GRAVE!

She ain’t lying. 

Sheer power is needed to sing this. 

You didn’t fight THAT hard. 

You didn’t even shoot when you had the chance. 

WELL DON’T DO DAT!

That face though.

YESSSS THIS SCENE!

you’re ruinging your dress.

YEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEESSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!

So beautiful. 

He’s in shock. 

See Erik? She loves you!

STUPID ANGRY MOB RUINING MY MOMENT!

She should’ve come back and stayed. 

DON’T LEAVE HIM!

Why do those torches look like flaming marshmallows.

OTP- oh, the pain. 

*rips out heart*

*breaks heart*

*throws heart on ground*

*stomps on heart*

Christine, I love you! *heart falls into the abyss*

My friend and I mistook Christine for the doll. We freaked at midnight.

WHY DID YOU GIVE THE RING BACK.

WHY.

Plot twist: That ring morphs into the One Ring. 

YOU COULD’VE WAITED UNTIL YOU WERE OUT OF EARSHOT TO SING!

You still have time. jump off the boat and go back to him.

IT’S OVER NOW THE MUSIC OF THE NIGHT!

*smashes bathroom mirror*

So many years of bad luck *shudders*

That would’ve been cool in 3D.

Meg? Meg? Meg? 

Meggie Meg!

Megamuffin!

Meg!

Sorry I rather like Meg. 

OH, TEARS.

This scene makes me depressed. 

THAT IS LEARN TO BE LONELY PLAYING

They made it look like she lived a long life, but no.

THE ROSE IS THE ONE SPECK OF COLOR

THIS IS HOW TO MAKE ME CRY

AND THE CANDLE BLEW OUT. 

and look at that, it’s over. 
I hope you enjoyed my live blogging of Phantom! now off to get Sims custom content and then make a LOTR family. Why? Because it’s a free country.
