I’m slowly dying please send help
In an AU where Erik had wings, what do you think they would look like?
Raven wings, I think.
I always picture Erik as a barn owl, from Leroux’s description of him as a night bird, and Raoul’s statement that he wished to nail Erik to the wall of a barn like an owl.
As for Christine, I love Leroux’s description of her as a light and deft swallow, a summer bird.
I always saw Erik as a raven or crow, and Christine as a mourning dove or a swan—swan because of it’s status for many cultures as a symbol of purity/virginity and loyalty.
Carlotta would be a peacock if she was a guy, for females are quite drab, personally, I view her as an ostrich (especially the wings—all fluff and decoration,little functionality)
Raoul, yes an eagle.
