That sure is some level of resistance you've got there, Jareth. You sure put your foot down and showed him who's boss.

Why do I start to love the Erlkönig. He used to scare the crap out of me (I mean Goethe's poem is kinda disturbing, yet beautiful) and now? No I start to love him.

I like the way the Erlkönig appears out of thin air. The magic looks like swirling water almost like the Swan Princess transformation scenes.
With all the magical, supernatural, and paranormal entities in this universe, I'm surprised we haven't had more appearances from the fae like the Children of Oberon from Gargoyles.

And the Wild Hunt is held on Halloween. Makes sense that Erlkonig should tell Jareth a couple weeks in advance.

I love that it is the 'please' that has Jareth giving his father a chance.

...Okay, can I adopt Jareth as my brother and protect him for forever and ever?

(This is the reason I don't write 'Labyrinth' fanfics actually; I keep wanting to protect Jareth. *facepalms*)

I love this comic!

...yes, I am this random in real life.

Ah, the Wild Hunt, this explains a little on the Erlkonig's design, like why you gave him an antler crown...I won't say anymore for two reasons. A) I may be dead wrong and making random connections, and B) if I am right, I don't want to give anything away.

Anyway, this is another beautiful page! I'm excited to see what comes next!

This page earned these tropes for the series:

The Wild Hunt
Politeness Judo
Ham to Ham combat (I actually wanted to add this since a long time)
Passive Aggressive Kombat (Just Jareth reached Rage Breaking Point pretty fast.)

And a Double Standard for Jareth. :D

I have a feeling you would get more of a response if you wrote "Erlkonig is a mythological character and therefore is up for grabs" in your disclaimer. Great artwork! As always.

Wow…Father issues much? I wonder what will happen in this story arc and who will be attending. Oh btw Ashe you never answered my question from the most recent poll and you probably, a) ignored it, or b) was too busy to reply, so I'm going to paste it here so you can at least see it this time.

BTW my sis and I had talked about weather or not Javert had magic (well in your comic he IS the son of Morgana Le Fay [and quite possibly older/younger brother to Mordred {if said man will appear at all}]), and I said that usually if one doesn't learn at a young age to use said ability then they lose the ability over time, but my sis pointed out if there are extreme circumstances that causes danger to themselves or others that said person(s) cares about then the opportunity to use said magic arises. And I know full well that Javert is able to see Misto's semi-human shape among other small incidents that most without magic would be oblivious about. So the real question is that if Javert HAS magic would he be able to USE it? And also how powerful would he be compared to Jerath?

:iconasherhyder:
AsheRhyder Featured By Owner Oct 4, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Gah, I missed this one. Javert is pretty much limited to True Sight; more than anything else, what would hamper his ability to use any magic he might have is his disinclination to do so. The rest of it I'm going to beg off answering for a bit; it may be relevant in the near future.

Will that suffice for now?

Feyqueen91 Featured By Owner Oct 5, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Yes definitely Ashe! Besides if you answered the whole thing there would be spoilers for the comic, it's an unwritten golden rule that authors are entitled to withhold information from their readers until the perfect moment!!

:iconfeyqueen91:
Feyqueen91 Featured By Owner Oct 7, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
But I do wonder if somewhere in the future Javert will be inclined to use it, hmm… One always wonders.
