Such angst! Not an unlikely scenario sadly. I loved it!

I loved this! I had a persistent sense of dread while reading this, waiting the whole time for something terrible to happen - and you didn't disappoint. Your writing style is beautiful!

That was so sad and messed up. I just want to steal Erik away and keep him to myself. I want to punch Christine's lights out. Curses. Great job though.

I read this story back when you originally posted it, but only recently rediscovered it. This tale is gut wrenching! I love your style-morbid yet extremely sensual, and uniquely yours. I so wish that you had continued with this, but understand your decision to keep it short.

Poor Erik! How can Christine be so heartless? Love it! :)

Aw! Poor Erik, and poor Christine! Well-written.

very well written, esp. the part where he's following her. i wish it was longer though!
| Mummy Eats Airplane chapter 2 . 11/10/2007
Hmm. That was very well written, and I liked it. But if I were to rate its morbidity on a scale of one to ten, I would give it a three or a four. Don't get me wrong, it was a great story. I just saw the summary and assumed that it was disturbingly and terribly, violently, bloodily morbid. It really was a good story. You write very well.

I think you should have gone with the longer version, even if it did take you a while to finish the story.
It feel as if the second chapter is horribly rushed, with lots of dangling loose ends that you didn't explain. For example, if Christine was capable of running away to have an affair with Raoul (which I think is fairly out of character, but that's a whole other can of beans), why didn't she just run away and not come back one day? Why did she stay with him if she did not love him (as apparently she didn't) and her lover, I presume, was willing to at least put her up as a mistress, if not a wife?
I did enjoy Bodies on the Shore, and I think that is why I am so disappointed in this one. I know that you can do better than this. I wish that you would have tried.

oh hell. that was depressing. well written though, congrats and good luck on future writings.

Really like the way you described the murder, especially Christine's scream likened to the sound of a train coming out of a tunnel. Made the scene really come alive for me.

I just found this story and was happy you updated.
All I can say is wow, poor Erik! I would imagine that Christine could really be that cruel (to Erik's feelings) in the Leroux version.
Please continue, this is a great story so far! :)

Great but there's something missing, like an epilog !
