Roommates 183 - Parent Trap by AsheRhyder Roommates 183 - Parent Trap by AsheRhyder
In which a clever fabrication and the skillful application of glamor absolve the characters from having to explain what really happened over the last thirty-some pages,

OR

In which we discover that watching your parents flirt is uncomfortable whether you're 30(ish) or 1300(ish).

Yes, for the purpose of Roommates canon, Admiral Norrington (the old one) is dead. More dead. Because I can't believe James would have given in and given up in the second film unless his dad wasn't there to psychologically screw him up even worse. Not that it's stopped some of these characters from (pardon the choice of wording) getting on with life, but some people can just stay gone, and we'll all be just as happy.


(And yes, just for clarification, the Erlkonig DID tell Mrs. Norrington that Socks was Sarah's nephew and in a goblin costume... )

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

this is funny.
 so here's how they are all semi-related to each other:
 
-javert's mom is Morgana; Morgana is Jareth's aunt; Jareth and Javert are cousins. 
-Erik used to "date" Christine; Christine and Sarah are roommates; Jareth and Sarah are "dating"; Erik and Jareth are roommates too; they are all to familiar with each other.
-James is dating Eponine; Javert has arresting Eponine of a few occasions if i recall correctly; it's Javert's fault that Eponine is dead (indirectly-ish); James and Javert are roommates.
-Erik is dating Mag who is played by the same woman who plays Christine… so yeah, there's that. 
-James's mom and Jareth's dad are going to start dating now (spoiler alert!!); Jareth and James could be considered step-brothers now; because of the Jareth's dad and James's mom are dating, that makes James and Javert sort of cousins (look up for the reason why); Eponine and Sarah are sort of cousins too
-Eponine is going to turn into a very good friend of Sarah's and Christine's (according to Girls Next Door) and all of the drama.

someone should make a flow chart with funny doodles for all of this confusion. i mean it. someone should.

Wow!
I came home drunk yesterday and wanted to read some more of this brilliant story, but somewhere along the way I fell asleep on the keyboard... and the story continued in my dreams.

Now i don't know what's real and what's not anymore so i'll reread yer comic again. ^^
First time i dreamt in black and white in 2D though :D

actually i kinda like it, it often gives a new perspective on the story or its characters, not to mention the massive fun of the surreal feeling from not knowing what's real or not. then i can have fun figuring it all out again :D

That happened to me once too. I read the page through twice, and still had no idea what was going on. I had to come back the next day.

Rereading this for the third time, I just had a thought: Jareth and James becoming brothers in the future?

Of course, I guess Jareth and Javert are already related, too. :D

And slap her upside the head. I just saw the musical recently on Broadway. I distinctly remember his mask being the "first unfeeling piece of clothing" he was given by said mother.

oh i know. and when you read Phantom by Susan Kay, you just want to beat her with a stick, then steal baby erik. but it would be entertaining to see her appear in the comic. face it the rest of the boys get a lot of crap from parents, but not him

So...just help me be clear on this, and please correct me if I'm wrong, since my own understanding of this confuses me a little too..
Jareth was being too nice for his fate-made role of a villian and the "Evil" was way backed up, and made evilJareth which then tried to redo the story written for him, and tried to kill Sarah, and tried to turn everyone else back into a bad guy too.But the evil side still isn't satified with the ending, and feels empty because of it...And then James stabs him in the gut, after having saved Sarah, which JAreth's and Sarah's PG rating saved him again? And uh....*Head explodes* 'scuse my tiny mind, the rest is kind of a blur in my head, even when reading it seconds ago. @_@;;
PS: Sorry for so many comments, I just started reading this a few days ago thanks to a friend. X"D

More or less? James does stab Jareth, but Jareth is at this point 'flying high' on the Story, and can't be hurt by mundane weapons (especially reinforced by the Story, because no one got hurt like that in Labyrinth). Jareth regains control because the ending of the Story he's currently working in (Good Vs. Evil) is beaten by the other Story that's being put into play - Redemption. At least, for now.

The whole arc has a lot to do with Stories and Story themes. I hope this helped.
