Roommates 129 - Mashup by AsheRhyder Roommates 129 - Mashup by AsheRhyder
Clarification!

Javert's mother is specifically the often forgotten "healer" and generally magical incarnation of the character who hasn't had much presence in the mainstream. She's from the really, really old stories, back when the Welsh and French were in charge of the mythos. She's all the same person NOW because her primary characterization combines different people into one role (Madame Giry and the Daroga, anyone?), which Javert here gripes. The multiple and conflicting characterizations between sources being why she's so... extreme... and why there's no credit for her.

Incidentally, James is apologizing because although a lot of the more famous material is actually French, Arthurian legend is generally considered to be English, and many of the later English versions continue to support the "evil Morgan" characterization.

Keep this in mind. Characterization may come back to haunt them later...

Also,

Yes, Erik's little mental thought process is 1+1=Fish.


Erik belongs to Leroux and Webber.
Jareth belongs to Henson, Lucas, and Bowie.
Norrington belongs to Disney, Bruckheimer, and Davenport.
Javert belongs to Hugo, Boublil, Schonberg, and Kretzmer.

I could not stop laughing, in part because just before I read that I was like,
"Wait, but doesn't he devote a whole verse in the Confrontation song to being born in a jail??"

Excellent job as always~

And as for the mythos getting boiled down like that . . I feel sorry for his mum.

I do enjoy this very, very much. You've got a deft hand with the feel of classic Fae tales.

Yey! I always get pissed off at authors who make them out to be the same character, and I'm all like "Nononononononononono that's not how it works. That's like saying that Merlin and Nimue are the same."

Ouch. Schizophrenia joke with Jareth a touch painful considering Bowie's past. . . His older half-brother had it. Ended up under a train. Not the top way I'd choose to die, but yeah. Bowie freaked out about it a lot. Sings about it from time to time. Bewley Brothers from Hunky Dory is about them growing up. Pretty sure Lodger's Look Back in Anger has something to do with him too. I would be crushed if I lost one of my brothers. Mental illness has always been his boogeyman. Aladdin Sane means A lad insane. The lightening bolt he wears on the cover is the mark of schizophrenia. Now I'm depressed. Poor Bowie. *sadface* Cheer me up boys! 1+1=fish!

It is never stated exactly how these branches are related; there's also an old tradition of calling people "Aunt" who are not directly related, but are very close to the family.

...I am now slightly concerned about either Javert and Jareth (or both) coming out and hunting me down for giggling about the fact that their names sound like twin names.

Heck, through Jamie in there as Jamie and we got triplet names going.

...Is Jareth subtly trying to adopt Jamie into his family? And not the blood family, I'm talking about the one he started with Erik.

It's a distant connection. The term "Aunt" is used very loosely.
