The skull and crown of Swedish 12th century Erik the Saint



The skull and crown of Swedish 12th century King Erik IX, called Erik the Saint, are displayed in Uppsala Cathedral in Sweden on Wednesday April 23, 2014. Researchers from Uppsala University have opened a small gilded box containing the skull and bones of Swedish King Erik IX, who became a national saint after he was murdered in 1160. The researchers also removed the king’s burial crown, which is the oldest known royal crown in Sweden, to display it to the public for the first time. (AP Photo/Bertil Ericson)


. …….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.

I made the soundtrack myself by making an mp3 of the entire show and cutting it up because I couldn’t find a soundtrack…

armadillo:

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.
