Favorite PONR photos: 9/15

I don’t remember where I found this photo, but I love how it really captures the atmosphere and mood of the Prologue.

i’m sorry i just get really excited about selfies whenever i see a positive post about them


just think about y’all millions and millions of little dark skinned black girls are going to go to the supermarket with their parents this month and when they’re waiting in line at the check out aisle they’re going to look up and see Lupita Nyong’o being hailed as the most beautiful woman in the world god is amazing

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.”


im so pro-selfie like there are so many bigger problems in the world than girls who think theyre pretty

one of those problems is girls who dont think they’re pretty
