"he'd spun it into a nightmare instead of rebuilding the dream." That is an excellent line! Lovely, lovely descriptions of their music together. You've captured his jealousy and anger very well in that mirror scene. Yes, that's just like him, blaming her for everything in his rage and loss of control. Poor man, you've done a fantastic job of describing Erik's inner turmoil of lust, longing, anger, and sorrow.

I want Erik to have Christine forever like he wants!

Woaaaah this was so dark and heavy and just ughhhhhh I wish they were normal but that takes all the unhealthy obsessive to the point of destruction magic away

Wow this story is so good! They are both completely kept in character, and it was just amazing. This has definitely made it to my favorites list :)

Considering Christine's face was cut with glass, she was very understanding!

Okay, I completely missed this when it was posted. Which was explained when I looked at the post date; I went to a dinner that was a reenactment of the last dinner on the Titanic on the 100th anniversary of its sinking. The dinner was on the 14th; the day you posted this, I was frantically sewing two dresses and the accompaning undies and wasn't on for something like two weeks. It was nuts.
Anyway. Enough about me. This was another brilliant story, my dear. You do such a good job of crazy, violent Erik. He was totally in character all through this, I think. Did you do research on abusers? Because his actions and words are just absolutely spot-on. So many writers (and readers) shy away from portraying Erik like this. You're very brave, and a darn good writer.
I find your writing style to be very romantic, which is good for this fandom. Which brings me to my only issue with this story; I find the bit when they're on the bed rather jarring, and not because of what's happening, which seems very plausible; what gets me is that the use of specific, overtly sexual words like "erection" don't seem to fit the style of the writing or these particular characters. I had the same issue with When Nightmares End, which I otherwise adored...well, to no end. Don't get me wrong, I love me some E/C sex scenes, and have been known both to write them myself and to search this site specifically for M rated ones. I just find word choices that are more euphemistic and sensual to fit better. Which I suppose could be a pun, given what we're discussing. :) Anyway, that's just my opinion, and you have every right to write your stories any way you please. You're still head and shoulders above 90% of other fanfic writers, in my book.
Kudos and keep writing!

Good point about using deformity as justificaton. It puts him beyond the reach of any law (in his mind, at least). That, perhaps is one of the most selfish things about him, really. Interesting story.

i cried so much during this story

So glad this was the first phanfic I read on this site. Definitely set the standard there, with that amazing writing. Now excuse me as I trawl through your stories. Have a nice day!

Good story as usual, Michelle. Erik needs to handle Christine with a little more delicacy, but his jealousy of Raoul always pushes the wrong buttons, and he let's anger and insecurity take over his emotions. It's really what to expect with someone as passionate as Erik...though in a way, (and I hate to say this), I can understand Christine's attraction to Raoul...he's what most women want, and in addition, he is a link to the happier days of her childhood. Erik and Christine fortunately, share a bond of music... not to mention, he's so darn cute when he's behaving himself. Just watch that temper, Erik, and you're home free! Thanks for sharing!

I so love your dark stories! They are a mix of reality and pain, yet always tinged with a sense of hope that somehow Erik and Christine will work out in the end. Thank you again for sharing your wonderful gift.
