The credit for this story must go out to more than just myself. I must, of course, thank Sir Andrew Loyd Webber for providing the musical, Gaston Leroux for all canon characters, and Beauty and the Beast from 2017 for How Does a Moment Last Forever. Thanks, should also go to my dance teacher Camille for the knowledge about ballet and my French teachers for translation of the French terms. As for the rest of the story, it could not have been made without the help of my wonderful friends who have given me ideas and have helped me out of some heavy writer's block. Thank you to everyone who allowed me to ramble on about my obsession with this musical. And thank you to anyone who took the time to read this.

Your obedient writer,
