This and its companion, "An Elysium Piece," are my absolute favorites, even if I would get upset...and yes, cry...for Christine's emotional abuse by Erik.

This and its companion, "An Elysium Piece," are my absolute favorites. Outstanding works!

Also, everyone cheers that Erik has his own marriage counsellor. Who does Christine have in the midst of Erik's new family? No one, except maybe Raoul. I am not a big Raoul fan, but in this case, he is better than being alone and just talking to God. (Continued comment from Chapter 23)

I get so upset when I read stories where Erik rips Christine's heart out and she prays or cries wanting him to come back. He failed her and I would love to see a story where she gets some backbone and leaves him, making him pray and grovel for her forgiveness. The writing is superb, and story interesting, but I am just venting... I am tired of crying for Christine's angst. Should just go back to Raoul...he would do the right thing.

I had spoken too soon...now this story is perfection. It was an amazing journey that you prepared for Erik and Christine and I loved every bit of it. I loved the bittersweet ending too...you did really well in blending the movie in with this story line. Great job!

What an amazing, quality read; I spent my weekend binge reading and count it time we'll spent. So glad E&C had their family; poor Raoul ... I especially liked the ending, and the way it ties in w/the 2004 movie ending with a unique and totally believable twist. Brava, brava - bravissima! Thank you for sharing your talent with fellow Phans!

I came late to this story and An Elysian Piece, but they gave me the peace I needed after the ending of Love Never Dies ripped my heart out. What an incredible writer you are and I thank you SO much for gifting us with your stories. If you feel so inclined to offer an alternate ending to Love Never Dies, I would not be disappointed. :)

I actually read this Elysium series a few months ago when I first began to binge on PotO fanfiction. And this series of stories has ruined me for any of the other Erik-is-a-de-Chagny attempts. None of them come close.
Come to think of it, it's ruined me for a lot of PotO fanfiction. It's in another league, just beautifully done. Even your "fluff" isn't quite fluffy ... it's just in another league, too passionate to be belittled with the term "fluff."
Am wishing I liked Glee so I could enjoy more of your writing. LOL

Hi! I'm an Italian girl and I'm really fond of The Phantom of the Opera. :D I've read the book, seen the musical and the film and now I read fanfictions -especially about Erik's and Christine's romance _ I found by chance your first story "An Elysian Piece" this summer, and I really loved it :3 I liked the fact that it was set in Italy, Venice is such a wonderful city and it's particularly near to the phantom because of the traditional masks :) When I first read your story, I didn't see your post at the very end of it, but fortunately, when I read your story again, recently, I found out that you were planning to write the sequel... And so I looked on google for this "Too long in winter" and here I am :)
I've just started reading the first chapter. I'm so happy to read this sequel :D
Let me just tell you that the Italian words you used are correct both as for meaning and spelling ;)
You can't understand how joyful is to me to find these familiar words...After all Italian is my native language!

Forgot to review this one too! I like this story for the explanation of how Christine became the Countess de Changy. I must reread. Onwards!

I absolutely love all of the writing they you have done! You are an amazing writer but I just can't come to believe that they could have been brothers. Yes it could happen but I just don't want to believe it. It seems too cliche and though I understand how it could mean that Erik and Christine can end up together, I just... I don't want it to be true. I really, really don't.

SO SAD! The ending
