I hope I don't get pulverized for this thread.

We all know there are a Erik/Christine and Raoul/Christine fans all over the place. However, there are a selected few of us who read between the lines and find that there are certain... special relationships that most never consider.

I'm not talking about PhantomSlash, like Christine/Meg or Erik/Raoul or anything like that. I don't think anyone doubts the characters' sexualities. I mean, what if Christine had never come to l'Opera Populaire? If you ask me, it is entirely possible that Erik could have fallen for Meg. Or, going back a generation, who IS Meg's father, anyway? Why does Mme Giry protect Erik so fiercely? I sense a secret love affair.

I'm one of those strange people who actually happens to be a fan of both Erik/Mme Giry and Erik/Meg, depending on the situation in each case. Anybody else a fan of an odd ship or two? :)

I won't pulverize you, Shadow...it's actually a very interesting topic. Thanks for posting!

I'm actually not opposed to E/Mme Giry. It's not entirely improbably, especially in the movie...they made it quite clear that Erik and Mme. Giry were around the same age, and that she was all she had in the world. The identity of Meg's father is never revealed, and if you notice, Mme Giry mentions that she is "all he has ever known of the world and its cruelties." Plus, she was a ballet dancer training in the Opera House, and then she became the ballet mistress...would she have gone of and found a lover/husband in those years in between?

My guess is no...she might have already had one deep within the Opera itself.

Of course, I will always be an E/C shipper at heart...whatever (might have) went on between Erik and Mme Giry would have long since died before Erik fell in love with Christine.

But as for E/M? Nope, never liked that at all. I don't know why...it just never floated my boat.

No, I don't see the E/M relationship either - it just doesn't make sense... I mean, he shows no feelings towards her at all. As for E/Mdm Giry, I could see that happening - after all she was the only person that he had had contact with for many years

I'm E/M too. I'm not really E/MdG but ya know, it could be. I think Meg's father was probally just a stagehand or a patron. *shrugs* just what I think.


Now, I see, If I wear a mask I can fool the world.

I don't support Erik/Meg in the least. If you've read the book, you realize the Meg is really young, maybe 10 or 12 years old? And Erik would've gone for Meg if he wanted to. It's not like he was shy ^.^

Hmm.. Erik/Madame Giry? That's a possibility. They might have had some physical contact *cough* but I don't think it became a long-lasting relationship or that Meg was his daughter. I really do not support that theory.

I agree that Erik/Mme. Giry could have worked, at least in the film and perhaps the stage musical as well. They must have broken up or something, though, because otherwise Erik wouldn't have become so attached to Christine.

I also support a relationship between Nadir (the Persian) and the Khanum of Persia. :D

What about Nadir/Meg? I've seen a couple fanfiction stories with that relationship in it. Any Thoughts?

Strangely enough, I do remember seeing one or two E/K fics. Sadly, they both ended with the Khanum betraying Erik in the end. :(

I am rather against MdmG/Erik, myself . . . if you look at the way Erik loves (rather all-consumingly), I can't really see him moving on between relationships like that; he strikes me as a one-and-only kind of guy. And besides, Madame Giry's name IS Madame Giry, which means that she was married at one point, I think. Even in the movie, I still see their relationship as that of parent/child--she looked about sixteen and he looked about twelve in the flashback. Maybe she's just a mothering kind of person . . .

As for the Khanum--she always brought out the worst in Erik; I was really rather unfond of her for that.

Nadir and Meg? Now that's an interesting twist . . . esp since isn't Nadir about 10 years older than Erik in Kay's? I could see it working, though, possibly.
