More on the Phantom

I have now seen the new Phantom of the Opera movie three times. Sure, I wish they'd made it years ago with Michael Crawford and Sarah Brightman. Sigh. But this was great, too. I saw it the first time (before it went national) by myself, the second time with my mother, and the third time (this weekend) with Mum and my brother's fiancee.

I also finished my Phantom-inspired outline over this weekend. To say I found a new take on the Phantom story may very well be an understatement. Sure, I have a masked hero and a woman who finds herself drawn to him. But there's something very different about my hero. He isn't deformed. Still, he must wear the mask because his mother thought he was deformed, and for years, he believed it. Even when he found out he wasn't, he realized he couldn't go out in public without the mask. (Not that he goes out in public much as it is.) It's like a combination of agoraphobia and body dysmorphic disorder.

I don't know why I originally came up with the idea of the masked hero not actually being deformed. It's possible I originally meant it as a "cop out." But the idea ended up being so emotionally wrenching that it is now anything but.

Someday I will bring this novel to life as a novel. But for now, someone else beckons...

The Return of Moonstone

Later this weekend, after finishing my outline (and seeing Phantom), I went back to the Moonstone story. It was a little hard to get back into this at first. For one thing, I had stopped in the middle of adding Zakira, the king's estranged wife, into the story. She is fun to write, but imagine my shock when I learned that so far, I had only added her about two-and-a-half scenes. I could have sworn that she was already in more scenes. Maybe I felt that way becaus she had such a strong presence. (She slaps Moonstone during her first scene, and later pinches Moonstone's butt when he sits down at the banquet table, after all!) So for starters, I had to add her to the rest of the feast scene. Then I had to decide what she would do about Blackwood's death, how she would treat Moonstone, whether she was involved in Moonstone's escape from the dungeon and disguise, and so forth.

I probably had the most fun when Zakira started dancing with the king, and did what must be the early Renaissance version of "dirty dancing." She also danced with Moonstone, although she really did so to speak with him. At one point during the dance, she spanked him.

I have a feeling the might have to take her to Brodin's castle when they escape. Poor Brodin!
