Anonymous said: I'm so sorry to bother you with this, but I saw that post about how that person basically said the Phantom strangling Christine was "romantic" and it totally distressed me. How would anyone think being strangled was romantic??? It baffles my mind.

fdelopera:

Yeah, that post disturbed me, too. The Phandom has always had its share of wank, and that post was definitely an example of it.

There always have been (and probably always will be) people in the Phandom who think that it is somehow “romantic” when the Phantom is physically violent towards Christine. There are probably individuals in most fandoms who think that men being aggressive and manipulative towards women is “romantic,” as evidenced by the sales of crap like 50 Shades of Grey. (Gaston Leroux and Hal Prince both understood that this was NOT OKAY, and was one of the reasons why in their respective versions, Christine leaves Erik/The Phantom.)

Hopefully the individual in question got the message from the large outpouring of reblogs saying that the Phantom choking Christine is not sexy in the least.

This blocking was inserted into the PotO RAH concert by the moronic director Laurence Connor, who also directed the recent UK and US PotO tours. The Phantom in the tour is even more gratuitously violent — he chokes Christine, threatens to break her neck, and eventually throws her onto a bed and pins her hands above her head. And despite the fact that the Phantom’s actions in Connor’s Final Lair are examples of sexual assault, there are still people who call it “sexy” and “romantic.” :/

This is why education is important. Hopefully through the course of talking with people, these folks will learn that sexual violence is not “romantic” so that they don’t try to seek out that kind of a relationship with a real life partner.

Great moments in tv history

The best part is how the hand giving the cigarette doesn’t belong to anyone in the room—no one is wearing that shirt.

Astonishing that a woman in a long distance relationship who works irregular hours and who has a seriously demanding schedule should take some sexy pictures to send to her partner. 

Fucking astonishing.

And then the absurdity of it would strike her and then she would just start laughing. And then she’d go “No, no Michael! I’m laughing now! I don’t want to be laughing! I’m angry with you!”

No but can you just imagine Mrs Weasley getting to the magical afterlife one day and the first thing she sees is a girl with red hair sprinting towards her.

For a fleeting moment she thinks it’s Ginny, but as the girl comes closer she recognises the kind smile and the emerald eyes that are shining with tears. It’s Lily Potter.

Lily pulls Mrs Weasley into a tight hug and can only whisper three words before dissolving into tears.

"Thank you, Molly."
