Some POTO sketches!! I’m basing the aspects of my headcanon for the characters on the book but I LOVE the masquerade costumes form the musical. I just winged Raoul’s outfit I mean what is that????? Idk???
“That is the terrible thing about it. He fills me with horror and I do not hate him…Think of Erik at my feet, in the house on the lake, underground. He accuses himself, he curses himself, he implores my forgiveness!…He confesses his cheat. He loves me! He lays at my feet an immense and tragic love…”
~The Phantom of the Opera, Gaston Leroux
I did more original novel stuff and tried Apollo’s Lyre, but my characters just basically look almost identical to usual.. oh well.
Christine comes back to Erik as he lays dying and gives him the two kisses he never got and says to him: “One for now.” And she kisses his forehead. “And one to save.” And she kisses him on the lips and Erik silently cries happily and embraces death knowing he was loved by at least one.
Modern Headcanon! Christine loves to take pictures so when she is pregnant with Charles each month she takes a picture with Erik/or Raoul(But mostly Erik) until the very last month before she goes into labour.
Some Raoul love here: Raoul is very fond of finding exotic flowers on some of his trips overseas (Cuz I only like Leroux Raoul) and brings back each exotic flower he finds for Christine and plants them in a garden for her.
When Erik is dying he gives her Ayesha. Christine starts to grow fond of Ayesha and so does Ayesha because they dearly loved their skeleton boy.
Christine hates it whenever someone brings up what had happened at the Opera House because it brings back painful memories of whenever she and Erik were together and Raoul has to stop her from correcting them of how they described Erik.
Christine is a fucking redhead with freckles and no one else is gonna tell me otherwise unless you’re Gaston Leroux’s ghost.
Raoul has PSTD due to losing Phillipe.
Erik is a stimmer, he likes to rock himself, bounce the leg, and all that good stuff.
I also think Erik has PSTD due to his mother not loving him and the circus carnivals.
