I think I am Erik.

Reasons:

-what??? is sleep???

-I too like to play instruments aggressively in the middle of the night

-crying

-I over-feel about EVERYTHING

-on a loneliness scale of 1-10 I’m probably a 574348573489

-A N G E R

-I have like one friend

-are they even my friend I D ONT KNOW

-I AM VERY DRAMATIC

-I’m kinda good at a lot of things and I think I’m at least slightly more intelligent that the average person

-narcissistic but also low self-esteem

-I’m kinda ugly lol

More messy Phantom sketches. Admittedly, it’s been a while since I read the entire book, so I don’t know how accurate these are. Also I had to sneak in the Broadway Masquerade suit because it’s amazing and so is Raoul.

  • Erik: so I finally found a cute girl and I need you to tell me if my plan to serenade her will work
  • Daroga: Okay
  • Erik: Well, I'm gonna pretend to be the angel of music, then I'm gonna kidnap her and bring h er to my house, where I will reveal her true identity. Once she knows, she'll fall in love with me and we'll be together forever. Plus, she'll never be allowed to leave.
  • Daroga: .....
  • Daroga: Dude what the fuck

I can’t get over the fact that the persian’s just like ey erik, how you doin’ buddy? and casually accepts all of the subsequent death threats and is pretty chill about his sort-of friend living under an opera house. but then when it gets down to it, he’s just like oh fuck this, that fucker needs to stop fucking things up, this ends today, and just goes and contributes to shutting that whole operation down.

the fact that he’s friendly with and genuinely cares about this ass-hat, but can still determine when a line has been crossed and turn against his former friend for the good of everyone just astounds me

i just feel like this isn’t a character dynamic we see a ton of and I need more of it.
