what a fine raoul

  • What they say: I'm fine
  • What they mean: Christine and Raoul's relationship in the book is actually so developed and complex and OTP material but this isn't accurately portrayed in any of the big adaptions and their roles in it are always warped and cut down and the depth of the relationship they had as children is never shown and although Erik can be a pitiful character Phantom is actually a sadistic serial killer who spends much of the book being torturous and completely lacking empathy for Christine's suffering as he forces and grovels his way into trying to form a captor's relationship with her but the musical doesn't show much of Raoul and Christine's past or Phantom's crimes and romanticizes the relationship of Christine and Phantom so much and that is why so many people think Raoul is a dense, fickle or useless character and dislike their ship and ruthlessly ship Phantom and Christine I just want a meticulously accurate aesthetic crazy film adaption of the book I'm so mad
