having a crush on someone who’s famous is so awesome because it’s like hey! no chance of rejection. ever. my existence is completely off their radar. they don’t even know i’m alive. this is great. this is a fun time. i am having so much fun
(Christine wins because she had years of practice with her father, while Raoul wasn’t allowed to play in the snow as a child, because it wasn’t proper for a young man of his station.)
So a year or so after the events at the Opera, it’s Christmastime, and it’s snowed heavily (they’re in Sweden?), Raoul mentions that they MUST have a snowball fight since he’s never had one. Despite his inexperience, he was still sure he would win. The fight ends with Christine throwing snowball after snowball at Raoul until he collapses in the snow, laughing to where his face turns red. He doesn’t care that he’s lost. He had so much fun. He and Christine then lie in the snow and make snow angels, and then go back to their little home and make tea and sit by the fire and tell stories and snuggle.
[is surprised when the patented gglam kissing sound effect™ doesn’t play]

Hi Anon! Well, Leroux tells us that Christine and Raoul left Paris and traveled north, marrying in secret. They then waited until the Daroga posted the advert in the newspaper L’Époque announcing Erik’s death, at which point Christine returned to lay Erik to rest. She most likely sealed him into a burial chamber of his own devising — remember that Leroux’s narrator said that workers digging in the Opera’s cellars disinterred a skeleton. After burying Erik, Christine and Raoul left France for good, traveling to Scandinavia and sojourning in Norway to make a new life for themselves.
I wrote a post a while back which explained why Raoul couldn’t remain in France, and had to flee. The logical place to go would be Scandinavia, so that at least Christine would feel at home. Raoul’s choice to move to Scandinavia with Christine, a place where he had no roots, no connections, no family wealth, and couldn’t even communicate fluently, is one of the many selfless acts that he does throughout the novel, and is one of the things that truly endears him to me.
i’m withholding judgement on the new christine until we get a video of her… she looks cute though
