Why This Must Be Read: When the challenge was "fandoms you've been in forever," I knew I had to do The Phantom of the Opera. It's a fandom to which I've returned periodically since I was about six years old.

-- and I had to start with this story, because it is one of the best short fan fiction stories I've ever read (and I've surely wasted away years of my life reading fan fiction in a wide variety of fandoms). Mostly Leroux-based. A realistic look at what may have happened to Christine and Raoul post-story, both sensual and creepy.

Why This Must Be Read: One of those fics where you have to wait to the ending to realize how great it is.

Why This Must Be Read: Raoul-centric. Another story where I don't want to say too much, because the story's strength is in what is not said. Just make sure you read it to the end. Also, the sex scene is well-written, which I mean as a sincere compliment, considering how much bad smut there is in the world of fan fiction, in general, and an absolute epidemic of it in POTO fics.

Heyo—thanks for the recs! Please remember to tag your posts with the ship and fandom in the future, though; it makes it easier for others to find these great stories :) And if the tags don't already exist, just make a note of it and one of the mods will fix that straightaway. Thanks!

Sorry about that! It dawned on me in the middle of the night that I'd forgotten, and I haven't been able to reach a (non-work) computer since then! I was coming here to do that, now!

It's been a while since I posted something with existing tags. I'll remember in the future!

By the way, I tried to add tags to my Coupling entry below, and I couldn't. Could you possibly add them, mod? Thank you.

Tags are added for your Coupling rec! Only mods can create new tag, but anybody can use any of the existing tags. :)
