Anonymous asked: question about LND/phantom: the only time christine and phantom would have been able to have sex (to my knowledge) is during music of the night. then he disappeared for "6 months" (says masquerade). so if she got pregnant, she would DEFINITELY be showing by her 6th month of pregnancy. so how is it even possible that gustave is the phantom's child?
Because ALW moved it so that they slept together after the events of Phantom of the Opera; The night before Christine’s wedding. Then that could be covered up by the fact Raoul and Christine probably had sex during their wedding night, so she could say that it is his child. But by then she had been impregnated by Erik.
However, a lot of people don’t show for a while. My friend didn’t really have a bump until she was 7 - 8 months into her pregancy; Even then the bump was quite small. So it could be possible to happen during MotN, however I doubt Raoul is not that stupid to believe that Christine would only be pregant for three months with his child, as they probably got married after the final lair scene.
Hope this helps!
