We Said Things In The Dark by Muirin007 We Said Things In The Dark by Muirin007
"Things in the dark," of course, meaning little bits of Victorian naughtiness whispered under a blanket at some sort of Erik/Christine slumber party. 

I've made it fairly clear that I think Love Never Dies is, on the whole, completely ridiculous. The music for "Beneath a Moonless Sky" is absolutely gorgeous, but the plot and the lyrics...

I mean really, what in the world? Am I supposed to infer that, because the title refers to a "moonless sky," Erik and Christine just...ahem... did it out in the middle of the Parisian streets? And no one noticed? There wasn't some sort of costermonger strolling by at the end of the day who saw the whole thing and alerted one of the gendarmes? Or did Erik just wave him away? "No, no, carry on, my good man, carry on, nothing to see here--woo wee, mama, that's a spicy meat-a-ball-a!"


Just the phrase "things in the dark..." Who wrote this? Honestly. "Things" could mean anything, really, which is where this comic came from. I like to think that Erik and Christine get a kick out of potty humor. :lol: Heck, they could have been exchanging the names of exotic fruits for all I know, because "things" isn't exactly descriptive. 

So, Andrew Lloyd Webber, as much as I absolutely adore your work on the original Phantom and admire your work as a composer, I have to give Love Never Dies a big fat PFFFFT. 

Although you have to admit, it's great material for spoofing! :lol: When I watched it with my friends, we were laughing so hard that I think we may have dislocated something...

Phantom of the Opera belongs to Gaston Leroux.

The music was gorgeous in LND.
The plot... Not so much. 
Although, my dirty, dirty, mind immediately understood what ALW was trying to say.

I hereby conclude that LND was made for bashing. Ah well.

Erik would have the maturity of a child for this kind of thing considering how he grew up but what is Christine's excuse.

I like a lot of the music in LND, and as its own musical it isn't all that bad, but as a sequel to

As far as I am concerned, this can totally pass as Victorian foreplay. :giggle: ... Erm ... Catholic bonapartist foreplay...?

"I mean really, what in the world? Am I supposed to infer that, because the title refers to a "moonless sky," Erik and Christine just...ahem... did it out in the middle of the Parisian streets? And no one noticed?"

Tee-hee. Mh, well, one of Erik's first lines is "Ah Christine, you came and found where I -hid-." You can't hide right on the street, I presume we are supposed to believe Erik stayed in some old shack or raunchy hotel room. Somehow I thiiink Madame Giry even says something like this in a dialogue during the play, but my memory might deceive me here (saw the second version of the London staging in 2011, still haven't seen the DVD).

yessss Love Never Dies was so ridiculous I was laughing so hard I couldn't hear what they were singing, I'm sorry, the music was really good sometimes but what the heck man I can't take it seriously it's like a fanfiction and it should be no more than one, anyway this drawing is awesome, I LOVE your Erik, and it's really late so I think I laughed a bit too hard  heehehehe

I actually do enjoy Love Never Dies. It is a little macabre, but I find it fantastic. I hate that Christine finally loves Erik, and then she DIES! She DIES. WHY? Anyway, this is just fantastic. I cannot image Erik saying nipple :D hahaha. The first time I saw this I laughed so loud. Great job :)

I sincerely love everything about this; your drawing style, the detail, the way the Phantom and Christine are at the foot of the bed like giggling five year olds. I can't stop smiling. Well done.

I didn't know about that movie until recently, so this comic makes much more sense now. :lol: Laughing so hard! I'm guilty of giggling about this sort of potty humor myself.

Ah when they talked about the moonless sky in that song, I thought they meant under a roof, in the dark. I imagined they just did it in Erik's place where the Music Of The Night happened, lol.

Agree, about 90% of the sequel movie sucks. The plot and characters were undeveloped and the acting was just AWFUL. It also bugged me a lot how the actor that played Eric basically looked like Jim Carrey. You don't hire a Jim Carrey actor when you apparently need a (now) 60 years old skinny guy that looks like he's been rotting for 100 years longer.

But the stuff that doesn't suck in the movie is really good, which is in my opinion the whole scene where the song "Beauty Underneath" happens. Dat whole scenery and ending of the song, holy crap. I felt like I was back in the essence of the original story again. At least for few minutes. But it went downhill from there again. Goddamn how much I hate Gustav lmao, he's as annoying as Duck from the videogame Walking Dead. Also, I remember the first time he was introduced I thought " What, 'Gustav'? Really? They didn't even bother giving him a French name to make it more believable?"

I thought the song "Devil Take The Hindmost" and its Reprise were catchy too. Though they were rather off-personality. I just can't get myself to believe Raoul bets his wife for money- and Eric betting at all when his thing is blackmail.

But yeah this is just the opinion of me as an old fan. :>

This is fantastic and I love it. And yeah, this is the way I describe this song to my friends who have never heard it:
Erik: "Hey, Christine, remember that night ten years ago, you know like THE night? When we were both awkward virgins and totally, like, well, you know, when I put my 'thing' in your 'thing'? Let's sing about it."
Christine: "Oh, yeah, when you put your 'thing' in my 'thing,' yeah, totally. Singing about that would be great."

Man, I don't think I've ever laughed at anyone's POTO comics except when it comes to your stuff. Seriously; you are a genius in your own special right.

I love your style of Erik! It totally works for him. And even though I love some of the songs including beneath a moonless sky, this is hilarious!

I wish I wasn't such a sucker for shit movies and music. God! I have problems! But I loved 'Love Never Dies' cause I'm weird but I love it even more when people poke fun at it because it's HILARIOUS! This picture gave me so much joy. You are so very talented! And the way you draw Erik is the way he should really look. LOVE! <3

Seriously though, this is totally what happened cause NO WAY they would do the dirty in the middle of a random street. Knowing Erik he would rent the Versailles or something like that for Christine.

Francois4moi Featured By Owner Mar 27, 2014
XD Oh, if only this WERE the real scene from LND.

It's silly, but it would ONLY improve that mess. I think if LND was treated more like satire, a commentary on the fanbase and its various aspects, something like that, it would be much more acceptable. If it could do for musicals what Blazing Saddles did for Westerns, it might just salvage Webber's rep.

Ah well. We can dream.
