1. Prologus by Jewelles le Soprano [Reviews - 8] starhalf-star (1275 words)
Welcome to my newest endeavor, a combination of Phantom and Aida, two of the most wonderful love stories ever to grace the stage. This is a new undertaking for me, trying to combine two stories into one that takes place in a completely different setting than that of either story. I recommend the music from both shows, as well as seeing them both. Maybe you?ll think, like I did upon coming into contact with Aida, that ?Wow, this is so like Phantom!? Here are some notes before we begin?

Disclaimer: I do not own Phantom of the Opera in any of its various forms, but I do take inspiration from the movie, the stage show and the original novel. I also do not own any version of Aida, though both the musical and the opera play parts in the story. This is purely fanfiction and I make no profits from this. Original characters belong to me.

Rated PG-13/R: The official rating has not been determined yet. As of right now, it will be a PG-13 but violence and/or sexuality later on may up the rating. If you are not old enough to read, please don?t, but I will alert readers if/when the rating changes and in what chapters it will be relevant. I cannot be responsible if a young reader encounters what they shouldn?t, so be careful, please.

The Characters: This is a combination of Phantom and Aida, though knowledge of the storylines is not required. (If you do know the storyline, know that it will be altered to fit the setting, etc. If you wish to know the plot, a basic summary can be found on Wikipedia by searching "Aida (musical)") For those who are aware of the storyline, the following characters are replacing one another for certain...

Erik will be taking the place of Aida
Christine will be taking the place of Radames
Raoul will be taking the place of Amneris
Meg (Margaret) will be taking the place of Mereb
Lord Gerard & Lady Lucille will be taking the place of Zoser
Lord Arnold of Eaton will be taking the place of Amonasro
Lord of Chagny will be taking the place of Pharaoh
Buquet will be taking the place of Nehebka

The Setting: I am not an expert on the Middle Ages. I have done some research regarding the setting, but not everything will be 100 accurate. If there are any glaring errors, please inform me and I will happily adjust it. But remember, this is harmless AU fanfiction, not a history lesson.

Chapter Titles: All of the chapter titles are in Latin to work with the Middle Ages theme. Many are understandable but if you'd like to know what the title means, feel free to ask! As well, there will be some use of Latin throughout the story but translations will be provided.

References: At the end of each chapter, notes/references will be given for historical purposes and/or plot purposes. This is where any terms used in the chapter will be explained as well as any Latin phrases, sources of lyrics, plus any miscellaneous things that come up that might need explaining. I hope you take the time to read them.

As well, I must extend thanks to the wonderful DonJuanTriumphs who helped me out with this idea and with another that is on long-term hiatus in my brain and also test-ran the prologue. I couldn?t have done this without her ? thank you so much! I encourage everybody to go and read her work because she?s very talented and has a knack for POTO fanfic.

So, without further ado, a fanfiction by Jewelles le Soprano

First of all, thank you to those who have already shown their support for this story?I?m very flattered by your comments and hope you come to enjoy the rest of the story as well!

Of course, I own neither Aida nor Phantom and profit from neither, though I?d be a very rich woman if I did.

Last, but certainly not least, I extend a very heartfelt thank you to my wonderful Beta and author buddy DonJuanTriumphs. She gives me wonderful support and advice and is a fantastic friend, as always.

Happy reading and please review!

4. Caput III - Dialectica by Jewelles le Soprano [Reviews - 0] (4855 words)
Not many notes this time, but neither Phantom nor Aida is mine. Original characters belong to me.

Thank you to the awesome DonJuanTriumphs, my beloved Beta. She?s found time to work on my writing even though she?s knee-deep in her own, so that just goes to show you how amazing she is!

References are at the end, as always.

Happy reading and please review!

5. Caput IV - Permutatio by Jewelles le Soprano [Reviews - 0] (4249 words)
Once again, nothing of Phantom or
Aida
belongs to me, but original characters are my own.


Of course, thank you to my wonderful Beta DonJuanTriumphs for reading and editing this chapter by section as I completed it ? she?s great and is a pleasure to speak to online at 1 in the morning EST. (To DJT ? the last line is a ?tidbit? line)

Enjoy this chapter and please give me your opinions ? I?d love to hear them!

Happy reading and please review!

6. Caput V - Reditus by Jewelles le Soprano [Reviews - 0] (3965 words)
I apologize for the long hiatus on this ? real life and the Muse are nasty little buggers. As well, I?ve been working away on a new RPF (real person fiction ? the fanfiction of real life) featuring the pairing of Gerard Butler and Emmy Rossum from the 2004 POTO movie. Entitled Where I?ll Be, it is posted in a LiveJournal community, so if you?re interested in reading it feel free to request a link.

This chapter is not my favorite, but it?s setting up many things to come that will be far more interesting. For now, I hope it piques your curiosity and intrigues you.

As always, notes are at the end of the chapter and I don?t own Phantom or Aida.

Lastly, a huge thank you to my beloved friend and Beta DonJuanTriumphs for sticking by me and this story as I complained for countless hours on Instant Messenger about the Muse and a lack of my own personal Erik?but that?s a whole other story. And do read her work if you haven?t already ? it?s wonderful!

Enjoy the chapter and please review!

Happy reading!

JLS
