Oh Erik, just walk in one day when she is dancing and be her partner! Then Punjab the Barron and spirit her way with you...simple as pie. Right?

Nice descriptions and I do think Erik would have watched over her like that - even if it was just for the sake of his friendship with M. Giry.

The cala-lily was a nice touch.

Subtle, sweet, and short! As Meg smiled in the end, so did I :) Poor Meg, stuck in her loveless marriage. As always, simply splendid!

Best wishes,

A very beautiful story, you've incorporated the Leroux in your own plot and narrative style very well. I'd be interested in seeing you expand this actually, if you ever have Erik and Meg meet each other. Great work!

Awww I love this! The description of her dancing is beautiful, and the flower at the end is so sweet(and so very typical of Erik!) :D

Awww this was lovely; sad, but lovely.

The way you have written Erik's pov is fabulous, very eloquent and slightly sarcastic with quite a bitter edge to it. He seems very reluctant to like Meg at all, grudging is his praise of her talents yet there are times when it slips - like when he describes the three glorious years she was prima.

Meg's life saddened me. This is definitly not a Meg I'm familiar with, having not read Leroux yet - but I will! I love your description of her lonely existence - very similar to how I think Christine's might be with the Vicomte - the polar opposite of life in the opera house.

And the lily at the end...beautiful and a bit hopeful too. Maybe two very lonely and disillusioned souls can finally be friends?

Beautiful, as always! I'd have to say, the last bit was my favorite part. Being a dancer myself (not ballet though, I can't do ballet for the life of me) I understand Meg's feelings... dancing is such an amazing way to let out emotion. Erik's point of view from watching her dance was awesome and very well-written. I adore it.
