Can people like… stop hating on Love Never Dies? I mean I understand everyone has different opinions, but you know what I say? People are supposed to have an ass, not be an ass. There is no need to spit venom everywhere, making people who actually like the sequel feel bad, tired or wrong for their taste. It’s actually not the worst one besides, if even my mom, who usually does not like non-canon sequels at all, actually enjoyed this one very much, and I enjoy I too. Well, at least Australian production (I have not had the honor to witness London production). Yes, I do understand that people mostly can’t stand how distorted the characters are. I myself hate what was done to Meg and Madame Giry, but we all should keep in mind that ten years is a long time, and people can change beyond recognition, for better or for worse.
Same about 2004 movie. I am not going to roll into the arguments that Gerard, as an unprofessional singer, completely slayed it, that to some people (me including), his raspy, untrained vocal is greatest part of the charm, or that his deformity is very accurate because it’s based on an actual disease that people live with since about the time of Phantom’s timeline (or earlier) to these days. All of that has been already very well laid out by other people, and I am not going to repeat it. It’s, after all, not the purpose of this post.
The purpose is reminding people, especially those who complain about negativity on characters, ships and movies, that by hating on Love Never Dies and 2004 movie they do the same to others. It can be physically sickening, you know, when those two productions mean so much to you.
However I just realized this post makes Phandom seem like a bunch of whiny assholes. THAT IS ABSOLLUTELY NOT TRUE. Phandom, aside this one little thing, is one of the most welcoming (if not the most welcoming) fandoms I have ever been in. Fellow Phamily, you folks rock, all of you!

So many of my lovely, loving, adorable, patient, intelligent phan children on here are in bad at-home situations.
And I just.
I love you. And I think that if Erik was real and knew about you and your situation he’d pull some kind of manouver so that you could live your own lives without needing to answer to the authoritarian regime of your parents/society/etc.
And. I feel so powerless. And I just want you to know that I’m behind you. Some of you have to wait. And some of you can’t run right now. And that’s okay. I want you to know that I’m going to be here in whatever capacity I can fill while you find paths to safety.
Phandom is international and one of tumblr’s greatest possibilities
is to get in contact with every Phan in the world, no matter where they
I asked phans if they wanted to get a postcard from
Perros-Guirec, before I started my PotO trip to
Saint-Martin-de-Boscherville and Perros-Guirec, and decided to pick ten
out of all who wanted one, taking care I chose the best country mix. In
return I begged them to take a photo of their postcard as soon as they
get it and write their country on it, before they post the picture via
reblog under this post.
The postcards were put into the mailbox in Perros-Guirec on the 1st of November 2017.
Hello. I am new to the Phandom here on
Tumblr. I am not new to Tumblr or to the Phandom in general, but I would like
to get involved in the Phamily. I have been a Phan for about 3 years (seems so much
longer!). I consider my transition into a phan when I began writing fanfiction
back in November of 2014. I had read the book and watched the 2004 movie long
before that and read fanfiction.
NOTE: Please understand I mean none of the following as a boast of my experience or to flaunt what I’ve done. I only include it to show my loyalty and love for the Phandom.
The following are my “credentials”:
Movies/Musicals/TV Shows Watched:
1925, 1943, 1962, 1983, 1987 (1988? I’ve heard both.), 1989
(MY DARLING), 1990 (MY OTHER DARLING), 1991, 1998, 2004, 2014, ALW Musical
(watched in 2016), Love Never Dies (with Ben Lewis)
Movies/Musicals/TV Shows Owned:
1925, 1943, 1962, 1989, 1990, 1998 (yes, my friend bought
this for me. We have a complicated friendship…), 2004
I am currently working on buying 2014 off of Google Play. I just haven’t gotten together the money to do so.
The Phantom of the Opera by Gaston Leroux, Phantom by Susan
Kay, TheCanary Trainer by Nicholas Meyer
I have written many fanfiction books/short stories/one-shots
in my life but this a short summary:
Books: 15 Short Stories: 3 One-Shots: 20 In-progress: 4 books
I have said all that to say this: Can I be a part of the
Phamily? I love Phantom of the Opera. It is life for me! (I hope everything above proves that)
P.S. If I am accepted, expect lots of likes and reblogging and weird 3 am AU story ideas as well as memes.
I want to say that this blog is a POTO safe place! I know I’m new to the Phandom, but I’d still like to provide a place where people can share headcanons, scream about ships, and cry bc the Feels™. No one UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCE will be judged on my blog! Not because of ships, headcanons, opinions, ANYTHING. If you’re ignorant just to hurt people, you’re OUT. If you’re unable to differentiate between the wellbeing of FICTIONAL CHARACTERS and REAL PEOPLE, you’re OUT. I just won’t tolerate it 🙅🏼♂️ I love you all, remember to try and avoid toxic activity and stay safe! I love you all very much 💞
To me one of the greatest things tumblr offers is the contact to other phans all over the world.
So since I am going to Perros-Guirec soon, I wondered if there are any phans out there who would like to get a postcard from this Leroux related place. It started just as a fleeting idea, but developed a life of its own fast …
Now I am going to ask you personally and directly: Would you like to receive a postcard from Perros-Guirec? The only thing I would beg for in return would be: As soon as you get the postcard, take a photo of it and add your country to the pic, post it under the special post I will create exactly for this purpose when I can estimate if that little Phamily experiment could actually have success.
To be honest, I don’t expect so many people to respond or even actually screaming “Yes, please, I’m in”, but just in case I am wrong, I want to add that there is a limit of postcards I would send. Lets say ten.
If there are enough interested people, I will get back to you.
To avoid any problems with parents or anything, I will only write to people at an age over 18 who can decide on their own if they want to give their address on the internet. Sorry!
Um yes hello phandom? I have a proposition for the future. I request that we do a shipping stream for all of our Erikcest ships. You feel me?
We’ll do two movies in one night, and compare notes for fanfics and what-not?
Just an idea, but I think it would be fun, plus I’ve missed a few streams so…yeah.
