Roommates 155 - Inopportunte by AsheRhyder Roommates 155 - Inopportunte by AsheRhyder
And now we will finally begin to get an explanation for some of those questions raised during last year's summer arc. Now may be a good time to refresh yourself on it.



Also, am trying a slightly different scan resolution. Let me know if this is way too small.


Jareth belongs to Henson, Lucas, and Bowie.
Norrington belongs to Disney, Bruckheimer, and Davenport.

Y'know, this truly begs the question: what the deucy daylights ever happened to free will and writing the story as you go? o.0

I feel kinda sad for Jareth in this story, since he has a dark side too...lol, kinda like the Force. But it seems that his dad is kind of sad too. Maybe it's because of proper training he couldn't control his dual nature.

His father gets a little more slack in characterization, because every incarnation of his mother I've seen is a psycho-witch, while his father can vary between wicked and so-close-to-human-but-not.

Now... I'm beginning to wonder who exactly he was telling to run. Especially because all of us have spent the last two pages practically begging James to run for his life... (and Javert, and Erik before that...) So maybe he was trying to warn the residents of #42? Warning is useful, but sadly unheeded.

The best I can come up with is some kind of conflict between his classic villian self that I definitely fell in love with all over again when I saw the movie (I fell for him first in these comics, XD) and the shade of him you've been using here, of him being good and cheerful. However, I dislike that blunt explanation, so I'm looking for a better one. I think the main difference was that Movie|Jareth is more... well, Fae, and amoral. Not really into those whole human concepts of love and whatnot.

Since Fae don't really understand love and all. But in the movie... he got the most attention by being what she expected (nothing is as it seems), the ruthless, somehow childish and capricious villian of the piece. But here, he still fulfills the role everyone expects of him; they're all fellow antagonists, so he doesn't feel driven to antagonize /them/, and is content to play around with his magic and try to make them happy in a more direct way.

So even here he's fulfilling expectations. His whole rant about doing everything for her is kind of accurate, if you consider that she's read this Labyrinth book and /expects/ him to behave exactly the way he is. (*is filling in Sarah's character to what it could have been, should have been, if the actress had been better*) So he is being generous, in a way. Here, they clearly need someone cheerful and carefree, so he fills that role instead, but he's much more comfortable as the villain. Then he doesn't have to worry about little things such as hurting Sarah's feelings. (*thieved from Pika*) Because the Fae don't have mortal feelings, and don't understand why human ones are so delicate.

Also recently, Erik found a girlfriend. It didn't work, but Jareth was jealous, which I find significant. Then there was that first Erlking arc, where Jareth did all the saving and got none of the praise... and the unappreciation in the "I fixed your sleeping problem!" (where he once more looks like an adorable Polly Pocket. <3) bit. So he's not been getting the attention he wants. (I have nothing against wanting attention, mind.) I guess he lost the argument with himself about whether his old ways were better. And, being a Goblin King, his mental arguments can get... violent.

Besides, being caught between two very different perspectives causes quite a lot of chaos in a person's mind. Some very awesome mental-based books have been written based off internal conflict. So it's entirely possible that the stress caused by recent events has built up to a level that caused Jareth to snap entirely.

That is an awesomely thought-out and detailed theory. You've got a lot of excellent points and strong arguments backed up with very good evidence. We'll find out if it's the correct one in a few more comics!

So Jareth's dad is still speaking his own ruin-ish language right? It's just that jareth can understand him so we can too by default? And who is he talking to at the end? Jareth can't run away from himself and there' nobody else there. And why are his eyes black?

I switched out to English in a funny font because people wanted to know what he said, even though most of the characters don't. As to the subject of his command... well, that's up for debate. His eyes are black as a stylistic choice, to accentuate the inhuman nature of the supernatural.
