Roommates 100 - Heal by AsheRhyder Roommates 100 - Heal by AsheRhyder
In which Jareth sees the bigger picture,

OR

In which the artist attempts to justify the various moments of OOC-ness for Jareth throughout the series.


Thanks everyone for reading Roommates! I'll try to keep the comics coming.

Quick question: Would you guys be interested in seeing quick sketch-like gags with the Roommates cast, or do you prefer the inked and structured comics?

... Honestly, it is a refreshing justification. There seem to be a lot of antagonists or anti-heroes who end up fallen and alone, or walking into the dark night (or flying away like a certain transformed Goblin King). As someone personally seeking redemption, having friends does help ease the burden. 

Less than a week of Labyrinth-fueled fixation and now I'm hooked into reading awesome multi-verse comics on DA. Time well spent. *applauds* Thank you for sharing your work, it is wonderful. :)

Ah, that familiar fae-wisdom creeping into Jareth's character. Like with all trickster archetypes, you need to look at their words through a double sided mirror, so to speak; if you listen to "Within You" for just the words, it sounds as if Jareth is angry, or else determined to defeat her. But the way I hear it, it seems as if he's also voicing his love for her, saying how she's like no one else he's ever met ("I move the stars for no one.") and that if she won't have him, he'll do her cruelty in kind ("You're eyes can be so cruel." = You're too quick to judge, essentially.) Read this way, it's surprising that he says "within you" as opposed to "without you".

Indeed. And when your head just so happens to be that of an English major, and poetry buff, words can play really hard games inside of it.

I really like Jareth's response to Jamie in this one; I happen to love the villains in stories more than the heroes oftentimes. It's sad when they do fall especially when in retrospect they really weren't "evil" per say ^w^

I tend to love the villains, too. Or at least side characters. And even when I don't love the villains, I frequently make up excuses for them. Although, if I don't do either of those, I dislike the villain with a passion.

Amazing. Stunning.

Just one question: What is OCC-ness exactly? O.o

Btw; Phantom and Blind Mag is an aMAzing match - but it takes away some of the sad fatality that you tend to love about the character... Though still really well thought!

i feel the same way "villans" of a series are always left alone and more broken then they started out to be it sucks because they dont see themselves as "evil" but mor misunderstood this was beautiful
