(AKA 'The Many Angryfaces of Christine' AKA 'The Not Very Funny One With A Sh*tload of Text Where GND Comes Down Off The Shipping Fence And Some Phans Are Upset' AKA 'GDIAF, LND'.)

WARNING HOPEFULLY IN TIME BEFORE YOU ENLARGE: This page contains bad language, EC, RC, (...ES?), references to sex and contraception, sequel spoilers, and author rant.

(And was kinda tough to write out and bear with me 'til more is said and done next week, ok?)

The thing is, we have only ever seen Veritaserum in action when added to tea or pumpkin juice. Luna can now take the interesting note that when ingested with coffee, side effects may include irritability, mood swings, foul language and extreme media-awareness.

Also, never underestimate Christine.

(And text alternates handwriting and ownfont to spare your eyes and my wrist.)

I have seen Doctor who fanfics written solely to keep that horrific sequel from ever happening.

It's horrid and garbage and character assassinates more than just principal cast.
1.) I hope the sequel NEVER HAPPENS in you AWESOME comic.

2.) Evalina & eric would make a cute couple

3.) I hope Christine was lying about BOTH of them being in Eric's sexual fantasies. Otherwise Jareth might just give Eric the same treatment as Sequel Raoul *shudder*

Aaaah, multishipping all three (ES, EC, JS) simultaneously is a roller coaster of feels
NightShadow13 Featured By Owner Jun 29, 2014
Awww, what a fitting round-up for that relationship! I can...actually get what Christine is saying here. It's not a logical action, it's a romantic one. That was always my feeling, too, that Erik was willing to kill for Christine but Raoul was willing to die for her, and one choice is ultimately selfish while the other is selfless. So...if they could be friends, even if it's messy, I think that could be a beautiful thing.

.........but Jareth and Sarah need to hit the sack, like, immédiatement

Erik, you terrible, brilliant, wretched creature (whose book I am reading right now)... some genuine progress, re-shaping even? This is why I love the Building-verse: they go through hell for it, but they figure things out. And at that point, they deserve what good they get out of it.

BOTH OF THEM? Oh my god...really?
Besides that, I really understand your opinion of LND, but do you really think it was that bad? I rather (and now please DON'T hate me) liked it....

TheDiva1977 Featured By Owner Apr 29, 2013
Ah, sweet, sweet, anti-LND ranting...I could read it all day.

I'd like to think that Erik, once the "sweet, I get to knock boots with Christine!" rush had worn off, would realize that destroying the happiness he ultimately wished for her and watching her die (and knowing it was all HIS fault for not leaving well enough alone in the first place) would be much too high a price to pay for the privilege. To say nothing of the whole "Beauty Underneath" nonsense...leave the prancing around to 80s rock with small children to his glittery roommate, thankyouverymuch.

i have to agree with your assessment of LND. such a STUPID plotline, with a horrid ending! (though i have to admit i like some of the music/songs for it, for which i am ashamed)

Question: since we're on the subject of BAD sequels, did you ever see the mangled mess made of Labyrinth in a "sequel" manga series called "Return to Labyrinth"? if not, i recommend it ONLY for cannon fodder for this comic series. XD
Pika-la-Cynique Featured By Owner Jun 4, 2013  Professional General Artist
Jareth knows of the sequel and is exerting some magical trickery to stop it from becoming better-known and 'real'.

I know I am going to get an earful, but.... really, you thought the sequel was that bad? I heard all your reasons, but still, I have to ask.
Pika-la-Cynique Featured By Owner Sep 21, 2012  Professional General Artist
Allow me to copypaste an earlier answer of mine to that:

(And btw I haven't seen the sequel. Not showing anywhere near me. I caught a few youtube vids of the major songs, incl. that "under a moonless sky" whateveritwas... It's reallly not about "how bad" it is of itself, it's the principle of the damn thing.)

That whole "Erik finally wins the girl" angle. Eurgh. I don't care how pretty the sequel songs were, Erik won nothing more than Christine's first night (yay reducing the chick to a sexual prize) and one messed-up kid. He didn't win her, she DIED. And if you have to make Raoul an emasculated, alcoholic, physically abusive womanizer to validate Christine preferring her esrtwhile psychologically-manipulative, 30-years-older, freakishly-deformed, sociopathic murderer - whom in original canon she DOES admit she will always love, regardless, but knows is a toxic life choice - then I personally feel that bashing the "competition" into the dirt so thoroughly is a very cheap and contrived way to make Erik "win" by default rather than by his own merits or any valid, freely-made choice of Christine's, and that is disrespectful to *him* - let alone to the female character. Who IS, beeteedubs, the main character of the novel, incidentally. And who deserves to live, make her choices, and not have her judgement so utterly shat upon ("silly bint, we phangirls all knew Raoul was no good from the start...") by a money-grubbing subpar sequel.
I have all manner of sympathies and soft feelings for the lovelorn Phantom, in despite of his very reprehensible actions, but at the end of the day this is Christine's story too/first; and pity - even the of purest, warmest, non-condescending strain - is not love, nor a reason to throw away her own life.

The bottom line remains, this fancomic supports Christine/Free Will, and her canon *choice* is sanity and life with Raoul.

I've gotten used to being able to "like" comments (spoiled by Facebook, sigh) and was kinda dismayed to remember that I couldn't show how pleased I was with your comment above without commenting myself. So here we go--I'm all aboard the "Christine/Free Will" ship too. Bless your heart.
Pika-la-Cynique Featured By Owner Aug 18, 2013  Professional General Artist
I'm glad we agree in feeling strongly about this stuff. :)
RomanceFreak Featured By Owner Sep 21, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
*rub ear* I knew I was gonna get an earful. :XD:
But onto the serious note: Yes, you are absolutely right. I have thought a lot about what you have just said, and also have thought about what others (who also hated the sequel) have also said about it, and it makes so much sense.
You see, here is me when I watched it: At first, I was entranced, esp. at the beginning. I was like, "Oh my gosh, Erik is returning!!" But then after it was revealed that Gustav was Erik's son, things went downhill from there. I was shocked and hurt that Raoul was an alcoholic jerkface and Meg and Madame Giry were spotlight hogs AND that Erik made a bet with Raoul behind Christine's back, "Does she sing or does she walk, Devil take the heinmost" crap. But I just shrugged it off and watched the rest of the musical. I thought i loved it (except for the very end when she gets FREAKING KILLED!!! :shakefist: ). But then when I heard comments by other people, I really wasn't sure what to make of it anymore and was confused about how I should feel. But now I can really see it, thanks to you. :) You really have cleared it up for me. I think my old feelings was hoping that she could actually be with him, but now I see how, as you have said, it would be a "toxic life choice."
You see, I have always loved Raoul from the very beginning, even though I do love Erik more. I always thought Raoul was such a wonderful, sweet, and kind gentleman. And though I SORT OF wish that Christine chose Erik, I ABSOLUTELY respect her decision to choose Raoul. And for me, both men have been the Yin Yang kinda thing for me. Raoul represented the happiness and fun in the sun, while Erik was the peace and sweetness in music and nightime. :)
So anyways, with all that in mind, I thank you for clearing my mixed up feelings. I guess I was just wishy washy about the whole thing. But if there is two things about the sequel that is good, it's this: 1) The songs, and 2) The message that love will never die; in this case, even if Christine is not with Erik, or vice versa, thier love will never die.
But besides that, you are absolutely right, that the sequel sucked very badly. Thank you for helping me clear up my head about it. :)

BOTH of them in his sexual fantasies? Tell Jareth that, why won't you ¬¬?
But now that I think about it, E/S is a cute pairing.
PrincessArt49 Featured By Owner Mar 3, 2012
You know, I find it kind of ironic that you've make such a big production out of the 'official' Phantom sequel (on which completely agree with your/Christine's viewpoint) but you've mentioned nothing in GND about Labyrinth's 'offical' manga sequel, 'Return to Labyrinth'. No doubt Pika that you could find something in that to lament about.

On another note, this particular episode of GND was both insightful and fan-freaking hilarious! :lmao: Those last two panels killed it for me. Excellent work on capturing Sarah's horror. :D

Was Chris joking in the 2nd to last panel? Who knows, but it would be funny if Erik did think of both the girls that way. Thanks to the midsummers comic I wouldn't blame him.

In the panel before last, had to squee a bit. That comment made me realize just how much of a closet E/S shipper I truly am. I really wonder what would happen if they got together just once, if only for the point of screwing with their respective roommates.
Proforce Featured By Owner Sep 9, 2011
I admit, ever since reading this I've been trying to figure out why Christine is so upset at Sarah. At the sequel, yeah. But Sarah?

Maybe I'm skewed or something, but this is how I see it: she has Raoul, knows Erik values her friendship and happiness above everything else (under veritaserum no less so she can't doubt his words), and got him to understand that everything has been her choice and hers alone. All the crazy pieces of her personal life are falling neatly into place, and all because of those macaroons. Regardless of everything and everyone else, her life is pretty much exactly what she always wanted it to be.

Yeah, she should really have been throwing Sarah a thank you party, not trying to put her in the hospital. But those are just my thoughts.
