    Summary

    Summary

    “Nay, an this be hell, I'll willingly be damned here,” Faustus cries, his eyes fixed on Mephistophilis, and suddenly, for reasons he cannot immediately discern, Mephistophilis feels that, aye, so would he be willingly damned here if it means he can look upon that face a while longer, and perhaps twenty years and four will feel like an eternity caught in the gaze of those eyes.

    Summary

    Marguerite is carried off to Heaven, while Faust is left to the dubious care of his servant and master. This is based on both the Gounod and Berlioz Faust operas--it starts where the Gounod opera ends, but at the end I seem to have drifted into the Berlioz by directly quoting a translation of the most romantic line from Mephistopheles' aria "Voici des roses". WARNINGSAUCE because I would classify this as "dubious consent".
