Re-reading Phantom - Part 6 (End)

Ugh!!! Every single time when I get to the ending, no matter how ticked off I am at Erik for being a creepy, psychotic stalker/kidnapper who wanted to blow up the opera house with himself and Christine in it, I still can’t help but feel sorry for him!!! 340 more words

Re-reading Phantom - Part 4

It’s strange to me that even though Raoul is Leroux’s obvious choice for Christine he repeatedly refers to their relationship in more platonic terms. For instance, in Chapter 12, Leroux says, “They embraced each other like a desperate brother and sister who have been afflicted by a common loss and who have come together to weep for their dead.” And later, “She kissed poor Raoul like a sister, rewarding him with an access of tenderness because he had made a brotherly little fist to defend her against all of life’s possible dangers.” In Chapter 13 we have Christine herself recalling to Raoul how she swore to Erik that “you were nothing more to me than a brother, and that you would never be anything else….” Admittedly, Christine supposedly lied in this regard to avoid losing her connection with the Voice, but one has to wonder if there might not have been some grain of truth involved when Leroux keeps referring to their connection in terms of siblings rather than lovers. 265 more words

Erik/Christine in the Movie/Musical vs the Book

In general, when I ship E/C, I am referring to the characters as they are portrayed in the 2004 musical movie or the stage musical, as these interpretations tend to romanticize an otherwise toxic and unhealthy (well, MORE toxic and unhealthy) relationship. 655 more words
