Roommates 150 - Story by AsheRhyder Roommates 150 - Story by AsheRhyder
In which we foreshadow some more.


So many problems with this one.
Originally, this was a bridge between the Erlkonig's arc and one that should be coming around the middle of spring, but it was too soon to lead into it directly. This is so old. If the art looks weird, that's why.
Also, please forgive the languages in the first panel: This was done before my decision not to try and dabble in languages I don't actually speak.

Jareth belongs to Henson, Lucas, and Bowie.

In hindsight this is even more terrifying than it was when I didn't know what was going on. *runs for cover*

This would be an interesting page to do a redraw meme!

Loving the comic, though it's is the first time I've commented.  (:

This page is beautiful. Gorgeous. Amazing. I love this page so much – how you’ve drawn the cracks and slices through Jareth in the last panel is wonderful. I don’t know enough synonyms for beautiful to convey just how much I love this page. And not just for the pictures, but the meaning in this page is wonderful. (Especially in relation to later arcs.) ^^

Fighting a losing battle with myself. I want to see the true beauty of what is being shown here, and my evil fangirl mind keeps going "OMG!!!!!!!! JARETH IS TIED UP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!" *evil, bad, horrible thoughts* I really wish there were an R rated version of Laby. Gods that would be so. . . . *drool* But yes what you are saying is lovely and thought provoking and Jareth is tied up! *Ignore me*

This is food for thought, especially for all the writers out there. Sometimes you see your characters struggling to be more than what you expected them to be, and sometimes . . . sometimes you just have to snip off that "potential" in order to serve the needs of the story. It sucks, and now I'm never going to be able to look at it the same way again.

This is definitely true, as was stated in Pratchett's Witches Abroad. You can fight it all yez want, but the Story WILL find a way to write itself.

I LOVE that you put the languages in there and that the art looks the way it does! It's like a story itself; a part of a greater whole, both a beginning and an end, and could be coming from anywhere and nowhere...

So, please;
