Roommates 102 - Boy Player by AsheRhyder Roommates 102 - Boy Player by AsheRhyder
Theatrical note: "Boy Player" is a term given to the young men who played female roles in the days when women were not allowed on stage. Even as far as Erik has come, some things just don't make sense to him.



ETA: Forgot to type in the name of the ep. Stupid me...

Erik belongs to Leroux and Webber.
Norrington belongs to Disney, Bruckheimer, and Davenport.
Angel belongs to Larson.

Waıt a mınute! So your sayıng from Erık's tıme there were no gırl players. To that I say HA... and no. Chrıstıne, Carlotta, Meg, and MADAME Gıry are gırls. Don't questıon my logıc.

But you can ıf you want to.

Really? I thought it was the other way around. Women are so flat chested/tall that they could easily play pants roles, or else a mezzo-soprano (like Cherubino in Mozart's "La Nozze di Figaro")

The time period is a bit farther back than the one that produced Erik, by which time I believe most of the feeling had died out, but he's still catching up to modern one day at a time.

I KNEW Rent would be involved! The scene before this was too much like them trying to get Rodger to get out and go to the Life Support meeting for it not to be! I feel so smart!

I have not. Honestly, if I'm going to spend my precious time listening to a musical about how important time is and how fast it slips by while people destroy their lives, it's going to have a bunch of giant viking-looking dudes and wicked bass.

... I'd totally watch Rent: By Nightwish.

I just now got the connection with Angel...AND I'VE SEEN RENT. *facepalms and joins Erik in the land of obliviousness* ANYWHO...I absolutely love this. It's been forever since I've been on here, so I've fallen behind in reading this. The number of fandoms you have worked into this one story is astonishing! I love it! My favorite character is Erik, but I must say that I started out with a bit of a bias since I write PotO fanfiction. Your portrayal of him is very accurate. I just want to hug the boys...they are all so wonderful and in need of lovin'. x3

Had to read the comments to figure out who Angel was, even with her name showing up. I've only ever seen RENT as a play, and only by the same people. The guy who played Angel from my school was amazing, but he looked nothing that your version in the comic.
