Why This Must Be Read: When it became clear that "Favorite Fics of All Time" was going to win the Two Year Anniversary Poll, I *knew* I had to recommend this fanfic. "Phantoms of the Past" is the best long-form fanfic I've read. In any fandom. Ever. I am not exaggerating (and I am not just saying this, because stefanie_bean is on my flist).

A mature, passionate Christine looks back on her life after Raoul has died, following their thirty-year marriage. Christine comes to terms with her relationships with both Raoul and Erik and looks with hope towards her future. If you only ever read one The Phantom of the Opera fic, *this* should be the one.
