Can I just tell you how happy I am that Christine kisses the Phantom at the end of the Opera?
She just lays one on him- and even he is surprised about it. Almost so surprised that he can't even enjoy it.
In my opinion, it is: intriguing, sexy, alluring, daring, risky, forgiving, full of desire, wishful, deliberate, showy, and most of all-
Remember, this is Christine's last crazy act before settling down with Raoul.
There is a reason, no matter who it is with, they call it "settling" down.
Think about it: Chrisitine kisses the Phantom.
Let that sink in- roll it around on your tongue.
Kiss the Phantom.
