Roommates 284 - Quarry by AsheRhyder Roommates 284 - Quarry by AsheRhyder
In which the shadows grow long,

OR

In which the prey has been present the entire time.


Through dangers untold and all that... Let's just say this post almost didn't make it on time. Hope everyone is safe. The boys sure aren't...


Erik belongs to Leroux and Webber.
Jareth belongs to Henson, Lucas, and Bowie.
Norrington belongs to Disney, Bruckheimer, and Davenport.
Javert belongs to Hugo, Boublil, Schonberg, and Kretzmer.
Erlkönig, Arthur, and Odin are mythological characters and belong to everyone and no one.

I'm rereading the entire series (because I do love it so much :3)
And I really love this page, but I can't quite read what Jareth says on the center panel, second row. Can I get a translation, please?
Also, the shadow on the far right looks kind of like some sort of anteater. This amuses me. :)

No problem! My handwriting suffers a lot from the inking process; annoyingly, it looked fine in pencil.

Schattenjager. Unless my language is completely off (always a possibility), it means something along the lines of Shadow Hunter.

Jareth is finally making me REALLY nervous.
As in, even more nervous than doppleganger-that-wasn't-really-a-doppleganger-Jareth.

Rereading this again... I have this weird thought that poor Arthur is this groups "Jamie" (and the Erlkönig is their "Jareth" ... I couldn't place Odin yet) :meow:
Reply
:iconasherhyder:
AsheRhyder Featured By Owner Dec 18, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Arthur is definitely their Jamie. Unfortunately, their group is a little uneven for the match up, and Odin doesn't really fit either Javert or Erik, though he's probably closer to the latter than the former.

Is it strange that I kinda hope over the course of this arc Arthur figures our that Javert is his nephew? And purely because I think it's funny?

Trust me: there's practically no way to over-think a Roommates storyline, excepting for the big "why crossover these fandoms" question. Late nights and long discussions and twisted, evil plans go into these things.

Mali-chan Featured By Owner Nov 5, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
"Why crossover these fandoms": because you like them. For me Roommates is about the power of fandom in many ways. Who's should matter most if not the author's who actualy draws / writes it? :meow:

Then I continue the overthinking thing. :D

Uhm hey, just randomly... like if the boys decided to go and get drunk and play karaoke again, there's a song that I think would be perfect for Jareth to sing, it's called Sarah Smiles and it's by Panic! At the Disco... just if you ever wanted another song choice. :)

This is an awesome comic series, by the way. I love it. :)

I'll have to look into that one-- *gets distracted by your username* ... the possibilities. They are ENDLESS. We haven't even seen Legolas' daddy in comic yet, and he's one of my favorites-- What is this, I don't even... Er, sorry, where was I?

Sweet.

Uh yeah, the username is from way back when they were 'thinking' of casting David Tennant as Thranduil and the idea just clung. :) Thranduil is one of my favourites as well. I wondered if he'd drop in for a visit somewhere in the comic and then I got sad because not very many people know who he is so I thought maybe you'd be like them but yay, someone else who knows of and likes Thranduil. ^_^ ... we seem to have gone off topic a smidgen... opes. Tehe...

Thranduil is actually my favorite LotR character. He just doesn't tend to show up in much, and the Orlando Bloom jokes were too good to pass up, so Legolas got to make an appearance instead. That being said, there's another moving coming out soon...

Amusingly I fell in love with Thranduil's character before I even knew what his name was >< *never mentioned in the Hobbit* And after I found out his name and reread the Hobbit he quickly became my favourite character overall, for everything and I still can't work out why. He's only just surpassing Jareth, Loki and the Doctor on that pedestal... and yes there is another movie coming out which I'm so psyched for. I wish I could go to the World Premier, because for once it's in my home country but alas it is not to be. Stupid New Zealand travel laws. ><
