The skull and crown of Swedish 12th century Erik the Saint



The skull and crown of Swedish 12th century King Erik IX, called Erik the Saint, are displayed in Uppsala Cathedral in Sweden on Wednesday April 23, 2014. Researchers from Uppsala University have opened a small gilded box containing the skull and bones of Swedish King Erik IX, who became a national saint after he was murdered in 1160. The researchers also removed the king’s burial crown, which is the oldest known royal crown in Sweden, to display it to the public for the first time. (AP Photo/Bertil Ericson)


. …….You guys know exactly what I’m going to say, right?Erik the king. In Uppsala. Where Christine was born. And it’s a skull.
Everything is Phantom. EVERYTHING IS PHANTOM.

AND THE FACT THAT IN THE ORIGINAL MANUSCRIPT, ERIK WAS ORIGINALLY BORN IN UPPSALA!!! Leroux changed his mind before Phantom went to print, and made Erik’s birthplace a town near Rouen, instead (the city where Leroux’s parents were married).
I feel like my whole life is a game of six degrees of Phantom. ;)
Here is the place in the manuscript (in the Epilogue) where Leroux decides to give Erik a French origin instead of a Swedish one. I’ve circled “Upsal” (Uppsala) and “Christine Daaé,” and underlined “Rouen.”


Fdelopera is an absolute treasure for this fandom. Seriously. You are AMAZING. WORSHIP HER, PEOPLE. WORSHIP. HER.

Mystery Legends: The Phantom of the Opera

part one

[x]

Edit: alvadee has since given a link to the deviantArt acount for one of the game’s artists; I can now give some credit to the creators.

The game was alright, but the artwork was absolutely gorgeous.

I hate calling into work but I woke up and had to lay down so I wouldn’t pass out. I feel so nauseous and idk why. This is just great.

Working a 14 hour day tomorrow…
