Lovely long chapter!:)
The development between the two characters is coming along nicely, but they are still far away from wanting to trust each other. Christine's reactions are golden, haha, and I love to read them.
The part that dealt with Erik's suppressed sexuality was well written and once again it made slightly disturbed. Oh course he would never harm her like that but that temptation is still there in his head.
I adored the last section with the film! It's odd that Erik would comply to watching such a fluffy film but then again he'd do anything to make her happy. And let me tell you the near kiss/gun part was perfect! And now she's face to face with Nadir!
Ooh can't wait to read more:)
P.S. sorry for the late review!

You've done a fabulous job of keeping this true to the emotions of the book while also holding true to your own plot. Well done! But of course... I'm also hoping that this does not END as the book does! There's room for both of them to grow... closer... together... right? I hope...

Well I wanted to see a bit more of Erik's darker side and I certainly saw that in this chapter! When you say you'll deliver, you deliver! The first section was a perfect lead up to the second half; great contrasting. Also, nice idea of switching to Christine's POV (diary entry, I'm assuming) in the second half. It really made an impact on what was happening. Now, I was just thinking that Erik would scream at her as she tears his mask off but no, you went further and made that scene great... and slightly disturbing! And I rarely get disturbed by what I'm reading so well done!
I'm loving that side of him, by the way! So dark, yet so sad and desperate. But that's Erik in a nutshell ... or 'case' more like it (sorry for that shameful Fawlty Towers reference).
Lovely contrast of emotions throughout and now to answer your question. Is Christine a monster? No, I don't think so. But she should feel ashamed about how she reacted (they both should, in fact). However, I'm glad she's reacting like this because it all comes together with your portrayal of her.
And oh yes I suppose I must say something about Raoul, huh?;) Well, the only thing really to say is that I hope Erik can defend himself when the time comes! There are so few fanfics where the author decides to kill Raoul off at such an early stage so good for you:) haha.
Can't wait to read more!

HA! That's one way to weasel a marriage consent out of her! I kind of loved it :P
Also, I forgot to mention last time how much I love Erik's reason for calling her "dove". It was really beautiful.
Thank so much for updating!

oh Erik, getting her drunk and asking her to marry you - sheez mister!
And the whole period thing, did not quite understand why that was necessary? And why didn't he press on the subject more, or simply told her how natural it was? oh well not important for the story I guess ha ha.
But they spent time reading in eachothers company how nice :-)
looking forward to the unmasking scene!

Poor Christine, she gets herself worked up so very easily and then she ends up feeling ill afterwards. She's going to make herself very ill if she continues this way.
And yikes Erik! What was that about?! I was literally on the edge of the seat while reading the last section of this chapter. I loved reading the wine scene, probably because we got to see a glimpse of Erik's dark side. I like, I like.
Ooh and that teaser of a cliffhanger! I really wasn't expecting that to happen, wow, you had me by surprise. And the unmasking scene is up next, you say? I can't wait!

I'm with Christine! If a spider crawled across my foot you bet I would have screamed! Although I probably would have demanded Erik then find it under the oven tooo... But that's just me. I'm one for vengeance :P
Anyway, loved the chapter! I went through some... ahem... menstrual issues at her age too, although my doctor was very different from hers! Less... doom and gloom, more "give yourself time."
Thanks so much for updating! I so look forward to seeing how their relationship progresses.

Lovely story so far. What's interesting is that this is the first story with the modern day kidnapping theme I've read that's included Christine believing she has an angel. It's also refreshing to see this characterisation of Christine: strong willed yet vulnerable. Overall, she was always quite a weak/naive character and it's good that others have portrayed her as strong, but at the end of the day, your Christine is going in the direction of the original. Well done!
I'm enjoying the constant flashbacks and structure of this story too. You've got me hooked.
We've seen sections of Erik's anger, in my opinion though sometimes he's a little too nice, but I suppose we've yet to see that side completely. But in general, I like how you've written him.
One part that's stayed in my mind from this chapter is the dove part. I loved reading that. I love when you add little lovely moments like that, they really add to the development of the characters.
Some good strong moments throughout the story and I'm looking forward to reading more.
