Of what meaning could this holy day hold for me?
Nothing. It was merely a day, a day marked as any other day.It meant nothing to me.
The day would pass the very same. Isolated below in this unreachable place I claim years ago as sanctuary. My sanctuary was my prison as well, with society being my jail keeper. I could not venture outside as others. No, if such a brazen act was committed, I surely would be captured and be kept in chains in a cage as the freak I am.
This holy day, people kept it by intoxication and hungering like dogs fro favors and trinkets of all sorts. Quite good of them to remember Christ's birth by ignoring the least of these, and gorging on the choicest of morsels, while donning on excess of clothing, then stumbling in their stupor to a church and feigning such ludicrous piety, muttering memorized prayers like the drone of a mill.
On the other side of society, people huddled in shacks comprised of remnants of planks ad rags, their substanc
Kristin's SanctuaryIt was on that Christmas day I made arrangements with Madame Giry for Kristin to live with her and Meg, Giry's daughter who was Christine's same age.Kristin's Sanctuary by Classically-DePunk
My residence was wholly unsuitable to house a frail child, and I had not a trace of a notion of how children were to be reared and tended to.
For the decade Madame Giry had been my sole friend and benefactor upon my taking residence at the opera populaire, her character proved to my senses she embodied all that made a superior mother.
It was not simply excluded to her own daughter, but to the corps d'ballet that seemed to flock to her like chicks to a mother hen who also perceived her starched but benevolent nature. Kirstin would be in excellent care as Madame Giry's protégé.
"She will be in your care? Will you provide her with all she needs?" was my urgent inquiry to Giry when I introduced Kristin to her when Giry discovered us in her office that early morn.
My anticipation for her answer made my hands clasp over Kr
Welcome to Rose-and-Nightingale, DA's club for fans of Erik/Christine!
How to Join
To join, look for the 'Join Our Group' button at the top of our page, and click on it. A little box will pop up, will a place to write a note. Write a reason why you'd like to join, and then hit submit. Then you've just got to wait for it to be approved, and you'll be an official group member!
How to Submit Art
There are two ways that you can submit art to our group: by adding it to our gallery, or by suggesting it for our favourites.
To suggest art for our favourites, just click on the 'Suggest a Fave' button, either on our main page or on our favourites gallery page. A box will appear that will let you pick a suggested deviation from your gallery, your favourites, or all of dA. Pick your suggestion, hit submit, and wait for it to be approved. You do not need to be a group member to suggest a favourite.
You do need to be a member to submit something to our actual gallery. The process to add to the gallery is the same as to suggest a favourite, except that you'll also have the option to submit a brand new deviation directly to the group's gallery, instead of just having to choose an existing deviation.
Submitted art should feature Erik (the Phantom) and Christine. There are other clubs that take submissions of general PotO art.
When submitting art to the group, please keep in mind that there are younger people around. So, please, nothing above PG-13. Please don't submit photomanipulations that use promotional pictures or movie stills (except the Lon Chaney version, which is public domain), as they are against dA's rules. We reserve the right to reject any submitted art if we feel it does not fit with the ideals of the group.
Please only submit up to the first three chapters of multi-chapter fanfics.
There isn't currently a set limit for how much you can submit at a time, but please try to keep it within reason.
And, obviously, do not submit someone's art other than your own.
