... You can defintely make a case for Author On Board when it comes to Christine's attitude regarding the pending sequel.SPOILERS AHOY
I apologize if the comic spoilerizes anything for people, and I'll admit I'm not quite sure of my info. But the wiki tells me the plot of Andrew Lloyd Webber's 'Love Never Dies'
</i> will be leering heavily towards that of 'Phantom of Manhattan'
by Forsythe.... So Yeah. I can't see Christine being too thrilled by that. And the whole "their son is actually Erik's cos Raoul got his goolies shot off in hunting accident and cannot father an heir" is like: yays yet more fop-emasculating, and HELLO SQUICK.
And while part of me thinks it somewhat pretentious and daft that the characters of the fancomic claim to prefer living in said fancomic than go on to their canon destinies in a sequel, I suppose I am influenced by some of the Official Fanfiction University... fics, where, for example, the Harry Potter cast would brace every so often for the massive changes brought by the latest book release and that could lead to some meta yet moving drama.
Also, this page was initially a lot more somber and somewhat lacking in punchline until I decided to screw Cerberus Syndrome.
And I'm not entirely sure whether Erik's thoughts in that last are more of the "YAY I SCORED" or "OMG I scored and I HAVE NO MEMORY OF THIS FACT ARGH" variety right there...
