The Phantom of the Opera, Four Recs, Christine Daae/Erik, the Phantom of the Opera

(Does a book that's been made into many movies, musicals, and one of those musicals into a movie count for Challenge #59?)

Fandom Category: The Phantom of the Opera
Pairing: Christine Daae/Erik, the Phantom of the Opera
Fic Title: Bodies on the Shore
Author: Elcie
Link: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/2218253/1/
Rating/Warning(s): T
Genre: Horror/Angst
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: Brilliant story. If you're in this phandom, you've probably seen this recced before--and deservedly so. Like a lot of great AUs, it starts off with a logical, story-driven "What If?": "What if Christine did not have the resolve to approach Erik as his 'living bride' when Raoul and the Persian are in the torture chamber?" The author maintains Leroux's style perfectly. *This* is morbid Erik/Christine at its best.

Author: Kyrie74

Rating/Warning(s): T
Genre: Drama/Romance
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: Did you notice how Christine's tombstone read "Countess de Chagny" in the 2004 film while Raoul was still referred to as Vicomte de Chagny? So did Kyrie74. :)

Rating/Warning(s): T
Genre: Horror/Suspense
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: Whoa. I thought at first this was going to be an Erik-apologist fic, but it isn't. It so isn't. Sickening and scary yet strangely sad for all the characters. Seriously amazing piece of writing, that literally haunted my dreams for days.

Fic Title: Demons
Author: Wandering Child

Rating/Warning(s): M
Genre: Romance/Drama
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: This story is perfection. I'm not exaggerating. A sensual, passionate tale, with a true sense of history, this is one of the few EC phics that do not sweep all of Erik's and Christine's issues with each other under the rug. (I could make an obvious joke about a Persian rug here, but I won't.) Wandering Child does not bash nor sugarcoat any of her characters.
