The trash can

So, I saw Phantom for my birthday a few weeks ago at the Baltimore HIppodrome. I loved the entire show, but I think my favorite part was definitely Wandering Child, specifically the bit where the Phantom tries his “come to me angel of music” shtick on Christine only to be interrupted by Raoul. 

Now, I’ve seen a few versions of Phantom, and they mostly seem to feature Raoul breaking the Phantom’s hold on Christine by calling out to her in an anguished tone, or grabbing her hand, or something else that emphasizes their love. Not this Raoul, though. This Raoul decided to go for the root of the problem and sucker punch the Phantom of the fucking Opera right in the face. 


Hip happy Valentines Day! Here, have a lil’ comic with a side of Le Feels and Fluff. <3 

I do actually have….a sequel to this but it’ll have to wait!
