Pro Raoul Rant oops

I just saw a phantom confession saying they hate Raoul because of the line, “Say you love him and my life is over”. I actually find that one of the best lines for pro Raoul points. He literally loves Christine so much if she said she loved the Phantom, he would technically live, but he would internally die. He’s not acting “bratty” and “self centered” as this confession said, he’s actually saying he would give up his life for Christine’s happiness. If that’s not selfless, I don’t know what is.

Make of our hands one hand,
Make of our hearts one heart,
Make of our vows one last vow:
Only death will part us now.

Make of our lives one life,
Day after day, one life

Now it begins, now we start
One hand, one heart;
Even death won’t part us now.


Make of our lives one life,
Day after day, one life.
Now it begins, now we start
One hand, one heart,
Even death won’t part us now.

Today since I’m in a POTO mood (when aren’t I?) like I thought of the film’s ending with Old Raoul at Christine’s grave and wow damn it breaks my heart because you can still see the pain that she isn’t there and hasn’t been for two years now but I bet he feels that hurt of not having her by his side anymore every day.

And then in an earlier scene when he sees the young couple kissing while he’s riding to the cemetery from the auction and he flashes back to that kiss on the rooftop like ohhhh my poor Vicomte
