In which Sarah and James have tea,

OR

In which a goblin has a narrow escape.



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

It's funny how reading this a second time foreshadows certain happenings in the King's War arc.

I think I figured out what word the goblin means. "Father", possibly? This is such an emotional, and well drawn page.

Everyone else is feeling for the goblin, but my heart goes out to Jareth. After all, how is one supposed to show love towards something if they themselves have never seen it shown towards them? At least the goblins have each other, Sarah, and James. No one has really appreciated Jareth.

I think today is the DVD/BlueRay release of Les Mis 2012. Wonder if we'll be seeing any more spontaneous switch-ups with Valjean and Javert? *giggling*

Meanwhile, I can't wait to see what will develop with Jareth here . . . you know, Ashe, I usually hate Mondays but you've given me a reason to look forward to them!

OH GOD! I'm having so many feelings that I'm a little bewildered.There is no words to describe this . It's great and an arc that can give us a lot of insight in the world of Jareth. I have to say that that even when I felt a twing of simpathy for Jareth especially in the two last panels my heart it's definitly with the Goblins in this one, and of course Jaime. All that the little Socks say it's so deeply emotional, so meaningful especially with the fact that it's every one of the things that we though. The fact that the goblins are indeed children that no one has reclaim it's so sad and sheed so much light about Jareth's kingdom that it's perfect. And when Socks says that he knows the sentiment, he knows the feeling, he knows the word I just want to huge him and scream "It's father!"time and time again. Because he and the others are somewhat right Jareth is his king but nothing else beyond that and James had inadvertly become a father figure. And for another part I just want to punch the people who didn't go looking for them and Jareth to. Even whe it's probably irrational, because it's posible that some families are still loking for them, or just failing in doing it, and Jareth just had to keep them because that's how the things work, the book, the deal I don't even know anymore what was that. But anyways closing this, and telling you that you're making a great work with this. Very good page, and I see mor of you're inicial style here? Then again maybe I'm allucinating because my head it's not very good right now. I think I'm coming with the flu or something. Or I'm just very tired. Anyways love the new page!

As king Jareth shapes up to be the Troubled Abuser type. He very much knows what the goblin meant as he feels the same. He became the king of the Unwanted because he himself was unwanted (his dad disappeared and his mother is Evil with a capital E, and what we can see abusive too)... the thing is: Can he give a better home to those wished away children with his background? And being an inhuman fae?

Yeah, that's actually pretty much acurate. Now respect to these questions that are being planted I think he's starting to realize that he's not being better that the others. That he still has so much to work, to shape and now he can see that he's probably loosing what he though he have for right or something. He's starting to see that the Goblings remember more than what was posible and that their obedience is not the same for him, as for James or even Sarah.

In his defense, considering his background he is doing remarkably well, it's just still not enough for running the magical child services. Either he has to learn more about being human (which might only be possible for an extent as he isn't) or getting help, which is what he (and the goblins) seem to be unconsciously doing, but this might cause problems with his pride.

Also todays trope: Machiavelli Was Wrong. :D

Exactly! I actually think that he is gonna go for the path of getting help. Like you said he is doing much better, I mean he has been evolutioning, getting over each one of the obstacules that his position and charactization as a "villan" has been laying for him. Now he actually think of the rest of the "core four" as his friends and, dare I say it, as his family. I think that yes, it's very posibly that his pride it's gonna give him some work but 1) When it didn't? And 2) I'm very positive to think that he's gonna get over it and emerge victorius from this new "challenge".

...I'm very embarrased to say that I don't understand what you were refering in your last paragraph. I'm sorry!

:iconmali-chan:
Mali-chan Featured By Owner Mar 24, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
I pretty much agree with you. He wanted to have friends (even referring to the main cast as his friends) for a long time (I think the first time was when Erik and Mag got stuck in the elevator), and he managed to make this mutual. I believe he will succeed too, the question is at what cost. Also for his next step I think he will seek out his sister and father for advice... yeah, I so can see how this can backfire spectacularly.

If you don't know what I was referring to in the last paragraph then your life (and vocabulary) isn't ruined by TVTropes yet. (TVTropes is a wiki for storytelling devices and media, also one of the memetic timewasters of the internet.)

Aww poor goblins, it's so sad that having to say that was necessary. And poor Jareth, I bet that he regrets what he's done. I wonder if he will start to get depressed, because he starts to think that Sarah is right when she thought that he was a villain. :'(

... the really sad thing about this is the goblins are children that were wished away. They're Jareth's subjects because they are just as unwanted by their parents as he is by his own. And he probably knows exactly what the little goblin means, because it's something he misses, as well.

It's potentially up for debate. Jareth knows which one it brings to his mind, though.

I guess something in the line of Father, Family (or maybe Love), as he was probably a wished away child. (And not that Jareth knows much about those things himself.)
