. …….You guys know exactly what I’m going to say, right?
Erik the king. In Uppsala. Where Christine was born. And it’s a skull.
Everything is Phantom. EVERYTHING IS PHANTOM.
AND THE FACT THAT IN THE ORIGINAL MANUSCRIPT, ERIK WAS ORIGINALLY BORN IN UPPSALA!!! Leroux changed his mind before Phantom went to print, and made Erik’s birthplace a town near Rouen, instead (the city where Leroux’s parents were married).
I feel like my whole life is a game of six degrees of Phantom. ;)
Here is the place in the manuscript (in the Epilogue) where Leroux decides to give Erik a French origin instead of a Swedish one. I’ve circled “Upsal” (Uppsala) and “Christine Daaé,” and underlined “Rouen.”
Fdelopera is an absolute treasure for this fandom. Seriously. You are AMAZING. WORSHIP HER, PEOPLE. WORSHIP. HER.

lemme tell u the story of my people son
the first beep goes off and you start off motivated and you feel like you can do this. The 20 metres feel like nothing, as you run, another beep goes forcing you to make it to the opposite side of the gym. The beeps get faster and faster as you cling for air, the children begin to drop. Slowly at first and then all at once. You just pray to god you arent the first to drop off. The beeps get faster and faster till you can take it no more. You go to the side, out of the other peoples way as their legs begin to buckle. You look over and you see the bodies of many lying limp on the floor. Some may even faint and be sent home. And that my son, is the story of the beep test.
