Proof that the remaining 10% is worth dying for here:

These are recommendations made by tropers for The Phantom of the Opera fan fics, all of which have to be signed to stay on the page. Feel free to add a fanfic of your own to the list, but remember to use the template found here.

Do warn when a fanfic may head into homosexual or non-canon territory. Some people just don't like it, and as we all know, Shipping is Serious Business. You can also add to the current recommendations if you want. Refrain from posting Conversation in the Main Page though; that goes in the discussion page.

Authors, and Websites

The Scorpion

  • Recommended by somebody else
  • This is one of (if not the) best authors for morbid Phantom fics. Hasn't been active for a while, but what she's got is amazing.


  • Recommended by somebody else
  • Very poetic, dedicated, and versatile as a writer. Sometimes falls prey to purple prose, but seems to have mastered this in more recent stories.

Just B Free

  • Recommended by Elenor
  • Always writes phenomenal, complex stories each different than the last. An Erik/Christine shipper.

Lucifer Rosemaunt

  • Recommended by Pheonix Reaper
  • Writes brilliant, engaging fics, covers a wide range of genres and makes all of them work. An Erik/Raoul shipper (yes, that's slash).

General Fics

Stories focused on the family and the friendly relationships of the cast. Plot-focused stories or light day-in-the-life stories. Pretty much anything that isn't focused on romance.

The Conjuror's Masque by Tytania Strange

  • Recommended by Zerbinetta
  • Synopsis: Mayhem enters the Pot O book as a Christine Daaé is murdered before she can make her debut, a waifish imposter claims her place and Erik seems to be undergoing a strange transformation... and it's up to Carlotta to solve the mystery.
  • Comments: This fic is wonderful, snarkily funny and filled with wonderful details about the life of an opera singer (Tytania Strange herself is a pro). Her interpretation of how Erik would turn out under these circumstances is also spot-on.

Koszcey by Phoenix Flame6

  • Recommended by Elenor
  • Synopsis: Nadir will bring back the frenchman like he was ordered to. But a dinner out reveals a magician with more than a few tricks up his sleeve.
  • Comments: A nice little character piece of Erik's pre-Angel-of-Music days.

See Christine Sing! Sing, Christine, Sing! by Silver Whirl

  • Recommended by Super Troper, albinotiger
  • Synopsis: Phantom, in the Style of a Dick and Jane book.
  • Comments: Brilliant - wonderfully acute and it had me in stitches the whole way.

The Phantom of Harrison High by Bleeding Heart Conservative

  • Recommended by albinotiger
  • Synopsis: Someone at Harrison HS has been reading POTO and taking it too seriously. About bullying, peer pressure, isolation, cruelty.
  • Comments: A great story with an excellent twist on the usual "POTO in high school" genre. Very touching, with an excellent PSA about bullying following the story.

Spare Me These Unending Trials by Petit Parapluie

  • Recommended by Much Ado About Nonny
  • Synopsis: Based primarily on my fascination with The Flying Dutchman the opera and what the suave Erik would make of a certain tragic Scottish organ playing doppelganger...Expect chaos to ensue, of course. POTC and Phantom of the Opera COMPLETE AT LAST!
  • Pairings: Eh...well, Madame Giry/Davy Jones is the main one, but a lot of other Crossover Pairings hook up over the course of the story.

Shipping Fics

Stories focused on the romantic relationships between the cast.

A Solo For The Living by Tango1 (Based on the 2004 movie)

  • Recommended by somebody else
  • Pairings: Erik/Christine, Raoul/Christine
  • Synopsis: It's 1870, and the Opera Populaire is gone. Those who survived that strange affair are left to struggle with its aftermath while war with Prussia approaches.
  • Comments: The summary above doesn't even begin to do this story justice. Dark, psychological, moving, and realistic. While researched extensively it never lectures. Everyone is not only in-character, but fleshed out in such a way that makes them feel even more human. Easily the best Phantom of the Opera sequel this troper has ever read. Hasn't updated in a few years though, so be warned.

Cosi Fan Tutte by Ione

  • Recommended by Elenor
  • Pairing: Erik/Christine
  • Synopsis: A small town girl who hopes to one day write operas, Christine's life at the time involves day dreaming of her French teacher M. De Chagny and spending time with her best friend Meg. When she has a chance encounter in the library while looking for a opera book she doesn't know that she's caught the attention of a retired Phantom. Nor does she know that he's quite willing to kill to have her. After all, it's nothing he hasn't done before.
  • Comments: Very good in keeping in character in a modern setting.
    • Read with care. This story is freaking creepy--and not in a good way.

The Six Months of Winter by Celestel

  • Recommended by Elenor
  • Pairing: Erik/Christine
  • Synopsis: Six months, that's how long Erik has left to live. And Christine agrees to be his wife for just six months. But is that amount of time too long, or too short.
  • Comments: A haunting story that doesn't end sugar coated, by may yet be happily ever after.

Mingled Tears: Tales of a Living Wife by bwayphantomrose

  • Recommended by Elenor
  • Pairing: Erik/Christine
  • Synopsis: Christine chooses to stay with Erik. A rich complex look at the characters and how they grow and change.
  • Comments: It was a true masterpiece! I followed - cheering, laughing, screaming, crying. It was, in the end, perfect.
