Roommates 315 - Lemon by AsheRhyder Roommates 315 - Lemon by AsheRhyder
In which many Cabin Pressure jokes are made,

OR

In which Jareth has another awkward reunion.

Things to note:
1.) While we could have used the actors as visual models for the characters (especially since they have those dress-up promo pics), it seemed more... appropriate for a radio show that we never see anyone's proper face.
2.) Roger Allam, the voice of Douglas Richardson, was the original London Production Javert.
3.) Yes, Gordon (Arthur{rambly chap in the top panel}'s dad) once tried to wish him away. Carolyn {lady whose hand we see in last two panels} very kindly explained to Jareth why it didn't matter what Gordon said, because Arthur is her son, Gordon has no right to make such wishes, and she wants to keep Arthur, THANK YOU VERY MUCH AND GO AWAY. She didn't beat the labyrinth, she disqualified the event.


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.
Arthur Shapey, Douglas Richardson, Martin Crieff, and Carolyn Knapp-Shapey belong to Finnemore, Allam, Cumberbatch, and Cole.

Flight Attendant: "Welcome aboard Recursion Airlines.  In the event that oxygen masks drop from the ceiling, there will be a sudden change in cabin pressure."
James: "Wait...this isn't just a lemon, it's a COMBUSTIBLE LEMON!"
:iconcavejohnsonplz::iconsaysplz: Another fine product from Aperture Science.

"The lemon is in play" ahaha! I'm so glad you included Cabin Pressure! Love the idea of Carolyn talking (or, well, terrifying) Jareth into giving Arthur back.

Mr. Cumberbatch is a busy fellow.
Now I have to go find Cabin Pressure.
And make a plushie for the lemon being in play.

And the face on Jamie is priceless with his tongue sticking out. So cute.

In which this reader has no clue what's going on, due to never having seen/heard the aforementioned Cabin Pressure, but enjoys the pretty art and the expression on Javert's face, nonetheless.

And Jamie's whatisthiseven? face at the lemon, as well. :)

Cabin Pressure, a BBC radio show. It's basically part of a travel version of hide and seek.

Okay, my mind went to bad places when I saw the lemon and the statement of "the lemon's in play." And when I say bad, I mean...perverted... ^^" I don't follow completely but at least things are explained in the description. Okay, I can't wait to find out what happens next. Things are going to get interesting.

This is quite a fascinating and funny page, though I am not familiar with Cabin Pressure and had to look it up. Is the lemon something that pops up in the radio show, or can this fangirl hope it's a tropetastic omen of things to come?

Traveling Lemon is a travel game to be played by bored people with limited space and clever, wicked minds. James doesn't get it either, so don't worry too much about it.

As for Gordon... It was less a direct contact and more a general wishing; it was hinted earlier that Jareth's domain includes quite a few unwanted children, and Gordon is, from what we've seen, the kind of person who would shout something like, "the goblins can have you for all I care if it would just shut you up!"

why does James have a target right over his heart? Its like having a kill me sign on him. A literal bullseye. Of course, this is Jamie we're talking about. So its not like it will actually end him.

Honestly, after reading the comments, I get what the lemon is about, but my very first though was 'He isn't likely to get scurvy on a plane.'

...Though technically it should have been a lime for that to really apply to James.

Wait a second. Is this...this is cabin in the woods, isn't it? Once they find the object, that's what sets up the encounter.

And they found a lemon...oh dear.

The 4th panel has to be among the most delightful you have ever drawn. And the 2nd panel Javert is quite nice, as are Jareth and Erik for that matter, so thank you for that- as well as for the Roger Allam notice. I was thinking that might make its way in.
Basically, bloody excellent page here. And I haven't even listened to the show yet.
