Phantom of the Manor by MelanieGracey Phantom of the Manor by MelanieGracey
Melanie Ravenswood and the "Phantom" of Phantom Manor, Disneyland Paris, inspired somehow by Phantom of the Opera in general.


Maybe I'm the only one who thought they would make an interesting couple. :heart: Like, before the setting of the ride.
Unfortunately, I've botched the Phantom's design -- in the scene in the ride, his lips are curled back, but he kind of looks like a Martian here. Oops.

LOVE!!! I'm like one of the few people who prefers him as a lover... I think they would make a good couple too! <3

Ha, thanks! Yeah, I personally just think it has a really creepy vibe if he's the dad...like, not incestuous, but close. And it's supposed to be PotO-based, anyway, so why not? :P

Yep! Yeah,I am working on a fanfiction of phantom manor, and every ones like, "He's her dad." (Me) "Oh hush. There are two verisons of the story, so I will say again, hush!" LoL

Awesome - I'll have to check it out! Yeah, I just feel like it takes the conflict out of the story, somehow - like, it being her dad almost makes her seem like a disobedient daughter, in a way, but it feels like there's more conflict if they're not related. I have my own version of it, too, that maybe I'll get around to writing someday...Hmmm...

I know... It's kinda like, why is her father in the story if he is not the phantom? I say, that the anger of father some how brought her dead lover back to life, he killed her fiance, and you get where this is going. :) I'll tell you when I get the story up! :)

Interesting idea! Can't wait to check it out! :)

I'unno if I wanna spoil my story, but mine's sorta similar...Mel and the Phantom were engaged and he worked with her father in the mine, and was killed (supposedly) in a dynamite accident, so Mel meets someone else and is supposed to get married a year later. The Phantom went crazy from his injuries and crashes the engagement party to get to Mel, but she rejects him, so he gets Mme. Leota to help him out.

It's still kinda rough right now, but maybe I'll work it out someday. :P

They can't be a couple cause he's her dad. But the picture is still nice!

This is amazing!!! LOVING IT! Love the Phantom of the Opera thing... so true, so true...

There is one thing that kind of disturbs me here... lol... a lot of people believe that the Phantom was actually Melanie's father, who died in an earthquake before, and didn't want them to get married.. which makes it all the creepier...

Ha! Anyway, this is great. I hope to see more PM fan art here on DA!

I tried to keep it ambiguous, though, with their pose. Yeah, I thought that was kind of a strange story, too; not as romantic.

There can never be enough PM fan art. :heart:

I'm just curious who the bride in California's mansion is going to conjugate with? I hope it's the Hat Box ghost, he needs more love from the Disney company.

I believe Disney was going to bring the Hatbox ghost back for the 40th...or maybe I'm wrong? There seem to be lots of rumors going around about him.

You did well with the Phantom. His skull is very detailed, as well as grim. I wish I could post more, but I'm wordless at the moment on this. Words surpass this.

A sweet image. Are you one of the individuals who believes the phantom of the manor is a doting lover?

Yes, in a way. I think he was a believed-dead fiancee who went crazy from being in an accident and decided to come back and be possessive of her, but that's probably just me.

Haha intresting theory about the Phantom's past ;)

Maby love cursed him into his death and even still beyond his death, because people are not able to show him the true meaning of love and caring, because he is a death yet living corpse skeleton, who is hatred and cursed by everyone...
(maby also before his death? It's just an small idea =p)

Very well done! I've always wondered about the phantom and why exactly he wanted to ruin Melaine's wedding, could be because he had feelings ;).

Great job on this; I love the style. He's kinda cute in a rotting, corpsey Crypt Keeper sort of way. :D This looks like it could be from a comic book or animated series--very simple and fun, yet conveys great personality. Your line work on this is just fantastic.

No, I actually think it would be a nice couple. I have a fondness of "Beauty and the Beast"-like stories and pairings, and, if you add dark elements to it, I'm hooked. ^^

Phantom of the Opera is amazing, it's great that you got to see it. :)
