* Recommended by somebody else
* ''Status'': Ongoing
* ''Pairings'': Erik/Christine, Raoul/Christine
* ''Synopsis'': It's 1870, and the Opera Populaire is gone. Those who survived that strange affair are left to struggle with its aftermath while war with Prussia approaches.
* ''Comments'': The summary above doesn't even begin to do this story justice. Dark, psychological, moving, and realistic. While researched extensively it never lectures. Everyone is not only in-character but fleshed out in such a way that makes them feel even more human. Easily the best ''Phantom of the Opera'' sequel this troper has ever read. Hasn't updated in a few years though, so be warned.

* ''Status'': Complete
* ''Pairing'': Erik/Christine
* ''Synopsis'': A small-town girl who hopes to one day write operas, Christine's life at the time involves daydreaming of her French teacher M. De Chagny and spending time with her best friend Meg. When she has a chance encounter in the library while looking for a opera book she doesn't know that she's caught the attention of a retired Phantom. Nor does she know that he's quite willing to kill to have her. After all, it's nothing he hasn't done before.
* ''Comments'': Very good in keeping in character in a modern setting.

* ''Synopsis'': A woman appears at the Opera determined to save the theater from the fiery fate she has seen in her dreams. But will her visions leave her at the mercy of the Opera Ghost or will she find an unexpected connection with an injured, masked man she finds deep
* ''Comments'': I have to admit it's been a while since I read this fic, but I do remember it being completely and utterly amazing. The OC's perhaps even more fleshed out than the canon characters, and I found myself, a previously hard-core Erik/Christine shipper, preferring this OC ship. The character development and the journey these two characters take is amazing. This is seriously worth a read.

* ''Pairing'': Erik/Christine
* ''Synopsis'': Six months, that's how long Erik has left to live. And Christine agrees to be his wife for just six months. But is that amount of time too long, or too short.
* ''Comments'': A haunting story that doesn't end sugar coated, by may yet be happily ever after.
** Sadly seems to have been pulled from Fanfiction.

* ''Pairing'': Erik/Christine
* ''Synopsis'': Christine chooses to stay with Erik. A rich complex look at the characters and how they grow and change.
* ''Comments'': It was a true masterpiece! I followed - cheering, laughing, screaming, crying. It was, in the end, perfect.

* Recommended by JayieTheHufflepuff
* ''Status'': Complete
* ''Pairings'': Erik/OC, Meg/OC
* ''Synopsis'': A woman appears at the Opera determined to save the theater from the fiery fate she has seen in her dreams. But will her visions leave her at the mercy of the Opera Ghost or will she find an unexpected connection with an injured, masked man she finds deep
* ''Comments'': I have to admit it's been a while since I read this fic, but I do remember it being completely and utterly amazing. The OC's perhaps even more fleshed out than the canon characters, and I found myself, a previously hard-core Erik/Christine shipper, preferring this OC ship. The character development and the journey these two characters take is amazing. This is seriously worth a read.

* ''Synopsis'': It started with Meg Giry entering the Ghost's box on a dare. Now, all the ballet girls are finding themselves face-to-face with the infamous Opera Ghost at the most inconvenient times.
* ''Comments'' Charming, engaging and very much fits the overall style of the novel and the ballet rats each are given their own personalities and have interesting interactions with a nice, IC Phantom.

* ''Comments'': The summary above doesn't even begin to do this story justice. Dark, psychological, moving, and realistic. While researched extensively it never lectures. Everyone is not only in-character, but fleshed out in such a way that makes them feel even more human. Easily the best ''Phantom of the Opera'' sequel this troper has ever read. Hasn't updated in a few years though, so be warned.

Do warn when a fanfic may head into [[EveryoneIsGay homosexual]] or [[BetterThanCanon non-canon]] territory. Some people just don't like it, and as we all know, {{shipping}} is SeriousBusiness.

Carlotta (Amber)xGerard...a lot of them in other words. But absolutely no RxChar (NathanxShilo) implied beyond father/daughter...so that's good.

There is also two OCs (Charlotte de Chagny, analogous to Shilo Wallace, who is the daughter of Christine and Raoul, so yeah...AU there; and (well, half OC) Gerard Carriere (everyone's favourite Graverobber, but baptized!) Well worth a look if you are into both Repo and POTO, as I am! The author even retools the lyrics of Repo! to fit the story :-)
