Yes, if I lived to be a hundred, I shall always hear the superhuman cry of grief and rage which he uttered when the terrible sight appeared before my eyes… I fell back against the wall and he came up to me, grinding his teeth hideously, and, as I fell upon my knees, he hissed mad, incoherent words and curses at me. Leaning over me, he cried, “Look! You want to see? See! Feast your eyes, glut your soul on my cursed ugliness! Look at Erik’s face! Now you know the face of the voice! You were not content to hear me, eh? You wanted to know what I looked like? Oh, you women are so inquisitive! Well, are you satisfied? I’m a good-looking fellow, eh?… When a women has seen me, as you have, she belongs to me. She loves me for ever! I am a kind of Don Juan, you know!” And, drawing himself up to his full height, with his hand on his hip, wagging the hideous thing that was his head on his shoulders, he roared, “Look at me! I am Don Juan triumphant!” And when I turned away my head and begged for mercy, he drew my head back to him, brutally, twisting his dead fingers into my hair.

Another goodie! I’ve reuploaded the Charles Dance miniseries… But this time, it’s in better quality! It’s a print of the EU version. Here’s a comparison:

Consider this

Cherik and Polo Christine having a son. A tiny sweet angel with mama’s silky golden curls and dad’s bright green eyes. Erik weeps because his baby is just so perfect, purest beauty and even purer soul. He had been blessed thrice in his life of misery, had a happier man ever walked this Earth? Christine smiles wearily while her heart soars in most sincere bliss, pressing kisses to their son’s warm and still slightly moist head, humming softly. They name the boy Gerard, Gerry for a fond nickname. After grandpa of course. When Erik’s father comes down to visit the young parents and meets his grandson Gerard Gustave Daae-Carriere, he is secretly afraid his heart may burst from rejoice. He cries as well, for he loves that little angel so much, and he feels so proud of Erik, who is now not some broken madman pretending to be ghost, but a husband and a father. It seems dreams do come true. 

Phantom 30 Day Challenge. Day 8

Favorite minor character.

OOOHHH I HAVE been looking forward to this one! I’d have to say my favorite minor character is Charles Daae. He is Christine’s father. Without him and his memory Christine would never have sung and the Phantom would never have been able to trick er I mean “convince” Christine into taking lessons and going to his lair with him. It’s really due to Papa Daae that we even have a story at all!
