You’ve all heard of The Phantom Of The Opera right? Well even if you hadn’t it doesn’t really matter because I want this to be different. This role-play is going to be based around the idea of The Phantom Of The Opera; only with a twist. It’s going to be set in modern times and it will be quite interesting to see how it will affect the overall plot. So Christian won’t be prancing around in long floaty dresses and the phantom won’t be wearing a long black cape. It’s still going to be set in the Paris Opera House but again it’s set in modern times. Christine is also still an opera singer and likewise so is the Phantom.
Just something to think about: Although this is set in modern times I want the characters to look the same, for example, Christine will still have long wavy brown hair and the Phantom (Erik) will still wear a mask and have dark black hair (which is a wig because his real hair is a mess) and Christine’s friend Meg will still have blonde hair and look young and innocent much like Christine and Raoul well he’s just Raoul. All that is changing really is how they dress and interact with each other.
For any of you who don’t really know much about it, here is a short description of the plot but first just a warning...this role-play won’t be exactly the same, as the characters will act different nowadays in certain situations. It won’t be over dramatic but at the same time it still has the key element of love.
The Phantom of the Opera is the story of a young singer named Christine Daaé and her relationship with two men - Raoul, (Rich and powerful) and Erik, the mysterious Phantom of the Opera.
Christine is a chorus girl at the Paris Opera House; whose voice is technically excellent but who has lost all soul and passion for her singing since her father died a few years ago.
She begins to be tutored by a mysterious "Angel of Music", who she hears in her dressing room. She believes the Angel to have been sent by her father, and after his lessons she is given a leading role, and astounds everyone by singing with a rapturous passion they have never heard before.
Raoul, a childhood friend, sees her again and falls in love with her, but soon realizes that she is under the sway of another man - her Angel reveals himself to her and leads her through a passageway behind her mirror, down into his home in the cellars of the opera house. He is a genius, a composer and inventor, who has fallen in love with Christine, and shared his love for her by inspiring her voice.
He also wears a mask, and when Christine tears it from his face she discovers that he is badly disfigured.
The story is basically a love triangle, with Christine torn between her attraction towards the Phantom, which confuses and frightens her, and her feelings for Raoul, which are more innocent and safe.
I want to join as Raoul. or whoever.
((Yeah that's fine. Go ahead.))
((I probably should have mentioned that I'm going to be Christine))
((ok. btw... my name is Goku or Ness.))
((Ah okay. I don't think I've role-played with you before..I haven't been on here in a while. My names Hannah as I'm sure you've already guessed.))
Name: Christine Daaé
Appearance: Long dark brown wavy/curly hair, pale complexion, with pronounced features sucg as high cheek bones, she has grey/blue eyes, is slender; almost slightly frail looking/delicate due to poor nutrition,wears simply but elegant clothes as she is a dancer.
Personality: Has an air of innocence about her/youthful manner, quite naive but also very sweet, maybe even a little too sweet. She doesn't see the badness in the world but she’s not completely innocent. She knows the phantom is bad news and yet she is drawn to him and her feelings frighten her. It’s almost like she can’t help it.
Bio: Her father died of scarlet fever when she was young and she soon became an orphan. Her father was an acquaintance of Madame Giry and she decided to raise Christine as a dancer in the opera house. She has lived there for 10 years and has blossomed into an amazing ballet dancer as well as a great singer (Which she doesn't realize until her lessons with the Phantom)
Could I be da phantom? O.o
((Yes of course :) I was worried this rp was dead before it had even started.))
Haha, and you would probably need a new Raoul, Goku isn't on much any more, And since the skellies are practically laid out by the story, why are we making them? O.o
((Yeah I sort of figured, considering they haven't posted anything on this rp in a while. That's a very good question actually ahah, I tried this rp a long time ago and a few of the people who joined didn't know much about it so we all made skellies but by all means go ahead and join without making one. In this case it's not needed like you said.))
Could i also have a little bit more background on what the phantom looks and his personality? Because i haven't seen the movie XD
((Yeah sure no problem. Okay well he's quite a complicated character and very mysterious. He doesn't reveal himself to anyone at first but causes havoc throughout the Opera House. Flashing lights/, things falling, even killing people...you name it...He wants to cause distress. He teaches Christine to sing although that's just a general fact that ties the Phantom to Christine otherwise it would seem very random. He's a little bit insane too. He doesn't know how to express his feelings due to the fact he's been living underground alone since he was a child. He's very lonely and wants people to except him for who he is but he knows they won't. Hence the fact he wears a mask and doesn't want Christine to see what he looks like at first. As time goes on any sense of logic goes out the window and he traps Christine because he's worried about Rauol. As for appearance, he's generally tall, has black hair (which is a wig because his own hair is a mess) The right side of his face is severly disfigured so he wears a mask (which only covers the right side) In the original book/musical he wears a long dark cape and dark coloured clothes to suit the time period but this is going to be set in modern times so it's up to you how you change that.))
Hehe, how bout e now wears a zoo york t-shirt and jeans that he stole off a victim? XD And we need a Raoul.
((Sounds good to me. He's certainly going to be a modern Phantom haha and yes I know, need to find one :S))
((Okay haha, hopefully somone will want to be Raoul))
