Okay, I’ve been meaning to make a Phantom of the Opera blog follow forever for a while now, so I guess this will be it! :)
Here is a list of Phantom blogs that I highly recommend, organized by category. All blog names are listed in alphabetical order.
I have listed blog names only once, though some blogs belong in more than one category, which I have indicated in parentheses.
If I follow you and your name doesn’t appear here, it probably just means that I haven’t seen you on my dash when I’ve checked recently, because I have a terrrrrible time remembering names.
For awesome people in the Phandom that you need to be following:

headcanon that when christine is drained from rehearsals she gets headaches and she’s a bit out of it if a day is in particular rough and long, and just plain tiring - so when like she hears a bad joke, that is a pun or something *mine are wonderful just saying* she’ll be cackling for minutes.
Favourite photo from The Golden Mask Awards.
Tamara is so beautiful.
Yo thanks I respect that
IDK IF YOU KNOW ABOUT THIS WEBSITE YET, BUT I DON’T EVEN CARE IF YOU DO.
CHARAHUB BASICALLY ALLOWS YOU TO MAKE A DIRECTORY OF ALL YOUR OCS.
AND SO (they let you get super detailed)
It lets you store 100 characters (you gain 2 extra slots whenever someone uses your referral code) and 10 images per character. You can even make GROUPS to organize them a little more— per RP or something. Image files can’t be too big either.
BUT if you want more file size, more character slots, and more other stuff, you can get a subscription! Don’t worry, subscriptions are super cheap (take notes, deviantART)!
pssst dudes charahub is really cool for character reference stuff. i have one, i should really make more use of it.
SLEEP TIME IS NOW
SWEET DREAMS HUMAN
I WILL BE HERE, SHARING MY WARMTHS
I GOOD DOG

This is what most nights with koby are like.
Ana does this, but I think her plan is to steal my warmth.
“When I was auditioning for Joffrey. I only had one audition, and the producers and writers were laughing at my performance because I was being so snotty and arrogant. They found it comical. I thought that was good.” —Jack Gleeson
“Jack is gorgeous – a wonderfully sensitive, quiet, intelligent scholar. He’s the antithesis of that character.” —Michelle Fairley
"Jack, who plays Joffrey is such a lovely fellow." --Ian McElhinney
“He’s this really contemplative, erudite, really gorgeous, generous human being, and he plays Joffrey so well. It’s very disturbing.” —Natalie Dormer
"Jack Gleeson, who plays Joffrey is an absolute sweetheart in real life, you know what I mean. He’s such a brilliant actor. I think he’s a genius." —Mark Addy
“He’s the most polite, lovely, intelligent person in the whole cast! He’s just so humble and everyone loves him. There’s nothing anyone can say bad about Jack. He literally just turns it on. As soon as they go, “Action!” he goes from lovely Jack to the most sadistic, horrible creep on television.” —Sophie Turner
“Jack Gleeson is really a very nice young man, charming and friendly.” —George R.R. Martin
"I kind of wish he would do more television interviews so that people can see what he’s really like, because there is so much hate for Joffrey, I feel protective of Jack now. If I were him, I’d be petrified that people would come up and slap me on the street! I should be his bodyguard." —Sophie Turner
"Jack is actually a very sweet boy and very bright, very intelligent young man with a natural talent." —Charles Dance
"Jack! He’s the coolest. He smokes a pipe, people. Talk about great acting for somebody who’s so different from the part he plays. I love that guy." —Peter Dinklage
wait what day is the 10th anniversary of mean girls because i need to make sure i barricade myself in my room with the blinds drawn
