In my head, Raoul’s thoughts are written in blue Comic Sans with more punctuation than necessary.
Christine’s are a soothing, sensible, green Perpetua or Garamond.
Erik thinks in bright red Edwardian Script, capslock, 10 pt font, interspersed with Wingdings when he gets excited.
This needs to be a thing.
Somebody make this into a thing. Printed and purchasable. Now.
I didn’t know colored text headcanons were a thing! I pictured Christine’s writing being in purple, like a combination of colors from the two men in her life, but still red for Erik and blue for Raoul.
But his looks also protect him from being attacked by the undead, which is one way he and Raoul and Christine escaped Paris.
Once others find out that he’s not undead, they also find his appearance useful when they have to leave safe zones (he escorts people out when needed for this reason and because of his skills in killing).
Also, he’s frequently forced out onto battlefields because the undead don’t registers that he’s one of the living. It makes him feel more like a tool or weapon than a person. Christine and Raoul and the Persians are basically the defenders of his humanity,
In his darker moments, Erik considers to get himself deliberately bitten by a zombie. Turning into a flesh-eating thing must be better than this life. He’s already a thing, anyway - people only care about him because they can use him. They say zombies can’t feel pain, be it physcal or mental. What a relief that would be…
The only thing that stops him from letting himself get bitten is that would mean never feeling love for Christine again
Isn’t Erik said to “smell like death” anyway? That probably helps.
I think that’s such a great idea! I don’t know a lot about cultural tattooing in different regions, especially historically, but I love the idea of it- him gathering different body modifications from all of the different places that he’s been.
Also a variety of scars (like whip scars) from pissing people off, and we all know he did quite a bit of that.
