Even though the sword was steel rather than cold iron, he was run through, so that still would have been bloody painful, right? (Perhaps at least while it was inside him and on entry and exit.) Because, melodramatic faint aside, Jareth was pretty chill about the whole thing and didn’t really look to be in much pain to me. That said, I must admit that I loved his attitude about the whole thing. =D Jareth opening one eye from his sprawl to peer up at her as he declares her a spoilsport is wonderful. ^^ You’ve done this whole arc so very, very well, and I love all the detail and depth you’ve put into it. Jareth’s vacillations between his good side and his evil side are wonderful, and I love his explanations throughout. ^^

 

Also, Sarah being the one to pull the sword out gives me the idea that she was having it ready-at-hand to take a swing at him herself should he continue causing them all pain and grief. And I do love how she placed a foot on his chest to keep him down too. It fits so very well. ^^

 

(And I adore how you did his eyes in the second last panel – they are gorgeous. ^^)

Jareth! Will you put a sock in all this deeply depressing 'I have to be the villian' stuff?

Depends on the fae.  With the more powerful ones, it doesn't always work.  But getting skewered through the aorta is pretty damaging.

I must admit to having always been a huge fan of Pratchett's Theory of Narrative Causality, and the poignant way you're playing with it here? Absolutely beautiful.

Okay, so it wasn't an iron sword. But steel has iron in it, so wouldn't it still have some sort of effect on a fey? Mild headache, stomach pains?

Nobody died in the movie Labyrinth. No one even got physically hurt all that much. Also, Jareth goes by some old school rules of dealing with the supernatural. A sword isn't going to do much to him, especially one tied in with someone else's destiny.

I don't want to spoil (much) but there seems to be precisely 2 ways to truly stay dead in this comic... being stabbed is not one of those. :D

Yes and Ashe admits that Norrington's dad is dead because she hates the guy and we won't miss him anyway. So she killed off The Scrappy. :meow: .oO(I trope way too much)

So, I've been really busy and not keeping up for ages. Why am I telling this to you, oh artistic entity over which I fangirl most heartily? Because you reply to every comment, which gives a girl the impression that you honestly care about every commenter. (As an education major, that kind of thing is inspiring.) And now I get to read a whole bunch of pages at once! Yay! Prepare to be spammed, Oh Great One!

And it's articulation like Jareth's monologue here that makes Labyrinth such a great fandom--the fact that we have so much to look forward to in rewatching a silly kids movie from the 1980s. There is depth to characterization and layers to how stories work, especially when you use Narrative Causality as a tool rather than a rule.

I admit to being fascinated by what everyone has to say and thinks about the comic, and the comments are the only way I have to see peoples' reactions. I hope that by responding to the comments, I can encourage people to share their thoughts and ideas.

Oh, you lucked out! You get to read them almost all in one go, instead of having to wait for weeks between them.

It's great when you go back and watch some of the stuff from when you were younger and realize that half of it is so much worse, and half of it is so much better than you remember...
