Roommates 286 - Chase by AsheRhyder Roommates 286 - Chase by AsheRhyder
In which we have a strange, strange time,

OR

In which James is having none of this.

One day I will learn not to try pencil for comics. I just cannot do it well. One day.

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

James' shadow is that hawk visible way up at the top of the page next to Arthur's dragon. Just follow James' line of sight.

I think that using pencil for this was a good idea...it gives a shadowy effect that doesn't show up with ink

XD Love James' oh so rational decision, here. It'd be kind of neat, though, if at least one of them did /not/ have to hunt to get their shadow back. (Besides Jareth, who seems to be a bit more intimately familiar with his.)

Okay here's mythoughts on wwhat's going on here:
Odin I can see laughing like a madman with the ham turned waaaay past eleven.
Arthur looks like he's going "Well... um... bollocks. How am I going to pull this one off?"
Javert looks panicky as he tries to catch his shadow, who I'm imagining is growling something along the lines of "Keep Trying Javvy! You'll get me sooner or later!" followed by a laugh similar to Muttley's.(This is mainly because I have a character with a dire wolf as an animal companion, and he is usually called the drow word for "dick." Why? Because this character is a blue skinned, wood elf/drow hybrid of a druidess... who is also so flat chested she could pass for a guy shirtless and nothing to act as a bra.)
Erik looks like he's trying to get in his shadow's mindset to catch it better. Though considering his past in the original book, that isn't surprising.
Erl, oh man Erl, he just seems to be going "Well, this is awkward."
And Jamie's reaction is awesome as he decides to screw this.

Meanwhile, I think Jareth is laughing his ass off at everyone else, or trying very, very, hard not to.
Though, as other people in the comments have said, there may be consequences of not catching your shadow. My guess is that the shadow will end up taking a life of their own and either change into a human with some features of how they looked as an animal for all but Erl's, while Erl's could end up as a normal human.

I also think King Arthur's avatar/shadow/whatever isn't REALLY a dragon, but a guy with a couple of coconut shell halves.

Wait, you can't do well with pencils? (checks comic again. comic remains intimidatingly awesome. looks back at AsheRhyder) Well, you certainly had me fooled, let me tell you! I love how Javert's having a hard time catching up with his shadow; and James' slightly jaded, flat-out 'yeah, no' feels so appropriate, given his history with supernatural tom-foolery. He's been offered a position on Davy Jones' crew, been bitten by a zombie, and literally almost lost his soul saving Jareth; his shadow flying off? Yeah, gonna have to do better than that if you want more than a raised eyebrow. ;)

What happens if James totally refuses to continue the hunt, and thus does not catch his quarry? Will his shadow be reunited with him at sunrise, or would there be more dire consequences?
I've heard the stories of a SUCCESSFUL Wild Hunt, and of ones with human quarry (which gets away but usually with side effects from being too close to the Otherworld) but never of a hunt like this one.
