So, turns out Christine Nillson owned a gun. I’ve no idea why, and neither does Google, so please tell me if you do. (Look at that case though, it’s so cute, it has the colors of the swedish flag on it •,,,,•)
So I thought up this headcanon:
Gustave taught Christine how to use a gun when she was 9. Erik, who is also good with arms, always carries his revolver with him for safety. One day, while they’re outside, it slips from his pocket and Christine recognizes the model. Erik is astonished. She asks him to use it, he questions her abilities (and he’s also worried she’ll hurt herself) but she simply takes it from him, sets a target and shoots, hitting it right on point. She turns around and smiles mischievously. Erik is left speechless. Ever since, they have little shooting competitions every now and then. When Erik loses, he has to walk around the house with his mask off for three days. When Christine does, she has to sing a high E and keep it for 15 seconds. Erik often denies having lost, because he feels uncomfortable without his mask on, but Christine reassures him with a kiss. If he still insists, she jokingly aims the gun at him and says “You either do it, or you get shot in the face.” to which he replies something along the lines of “Easy, now, my love. You needn’t disfigure my face further, do you?” She giggles and kisses him again. Only then does he admit his defeat.
