one of my favourite lines from phantom of the opera is “Insolent boy, this slave of fashion” because out of all the things the phantom could have said, the first thing he decides to do is make fun of raoul’s fashion choices
damn okay so I’m listening to poto again and right after Raoul leaves to go get his hat after “Little Lotte,” the Phantom immediately comes for his fashion sense and it’s so rude like???
“Insolent boy, this slave of fashion,” like wow okay Erik way to go being an asshole there like you could criticise legitimate things but instead you go after how Raoul’s dressed like??? he’s just doing his thing?? wearing his hats?? maybe Raoul likes being fashionable instead of being some mindless society drone or something
anyways, like there was no need for that, Erik, damn
