Who should she have ended up with? So, on to the other reasons The theme running throughout the center of the story is a story of unrequited love: Christine loves Raoul, not the Phantom. Any affection she felt for him was a father-daughter, student-teacher type of thing.
How could anyone not think that Raoul and Christine are a twosome of cuteness after seeing the "All I Ask Of You" scene on the rooftop? She loves Raoul, and only Raoul.
I really do not believe that Christine was so shallow that she was unable to look past that fact that Erik was ugly to be with him. Even reading between the lines will bring up the same conclusion, because believe me, no one reads between the lines better than I do, and I could not pick up anything that said Christine loved Erik more than Raoul.
Here are my reasons why: Who did Christine truly love? Also, if Christine loved Erik, she would have stayed wiht him. So obviously her feelings for him had nothing to do with his face, as Erik and all the Erik fans wanted to believe. They first met when he was a young child when he went on vacation in Northern France.
Raoul had Christine first. As Raoul has a living older brother at the time of his introduction, it is safe to infer that the title of Viscount is a courtesy title. If Christine had really loved Erik, it would not have been a tragedy. Raoul then, along with the mysterious man known only as The Persiangoes down into the cellars of the Opera in an attempt to rescue Christine.
Well, now I feel inclined to post my opinion, and it is definately contrary to the popular vote. In fact, I did not find anything to lead to the conclusion that Christine loved Erik at all.
He is puzzled and sometimes angered by her allegiance to Erik, and thinks that she may be toying with his heart. Christine and Raoul, therefore, were not able to enjoy their first time being in love- instead they had to fight for their love, their freedom, and their life.
I para-phrase Andrew Lloyd Webber: Christine decided they would play at being engaged as was scheduled to leave the country, although she later begged him to take her away from the Phantom, no matter how much she resisted later.
The most important reason: Philippe later drowns when he goes looking for Raoul in the cellars of the Opera. Okay, in the play they are slightly older, but in the book they are both only twenty years old while the Phantom had to be at least fifty. Unknown to them, Erikthe "Angel of Music" of which Christine speaks actually a musical genius who lives beneath the Operahad been spying on them.
Raoul and Christine are just kids! If she was that shallow, neither Raoul nor Erik would have loved her as they did. Raoul, on the other hand, cared only about her, her safety, her freedom, her hapiness, etc.
Like I tried very patiently to explain to my friend Kevinwho insisted that Christine ended up with Raoul for financial stability: Even after she saw how ugly he was, she still felt sorry for him and called him a friend. Raoul is in her heart. I quote the Persian: It had to do with the fact that she had no romantic feelings for him.
It had nothing to do with the fact that he was ugly and she was so shallow she could not overlook it. Now before everyone starts jumping down my throat saying it was about WAY more than that, just hear me out.
The Phantom did almost everything for his own well-being:Raoul or Erik (the Phantom), who is superior to the other and who did Christine Daae truly love? Would The Phantom have given her a normal life the way that Raoul could?
Who should Christine have ended up with? Although popular opinion tends to be in favor of Raoul, Erik is the right choice. Raoul, Vicomte de Chagny is a fictional character and one of the protagonists of Gaston Leroux's novel The Phantom of the Opera.
Raoul loves Christine more wholeheartedly than the Phantom. Again, the attraction on the Phantom's part was based nearly if not completely.
The Phantom or Raoul? Jolllllllly, ʟɪᴢᴢɪᴇ Raoul shows up and the Phantom has him hanging (literally!). The Phantom gives you the choice. I choose you, of course! How can you expect me to choose?! You jerk! I don't want to be with either of.
