Roommates 328 - Temet Nosce by AsheRhyder Roommates 328 - Temet Nosce by AsheRhyder
In which Jareth has issues with supposed moral-teaching stories,

OR

In which Erik did not find his limitations.

After this, Erik broods and does not come out of his room until the performances are finished. The others keep a pretty close eye on him, but there really was no need; heavy duty brooding happened here.

Interestingly enough, a friend and I discovered that, despite the format of Labyrinth's storyline... there were really very few, if any, lessons learned. You'll have to ask said friend for better analysis, though.

Erik belongs to Leroux and Webber.
Jareth belongs to Henson, Lucas, and Bowie.

Yeah, I saw it too, but it's hard to discuss when everybody else are "Sarah is a good  heroine! You are wrong!"

Jareth: "Now I have to explain why I'm in a wetsuit..."

Pretty much the only lesson we learned was 'Life's not fair', and some implied 'Be careful what you wish for'.

Though, Sarah really had a poor time identifying fairness in general... there were things that she called unfair that were in fact totally fair, and even skewed in her favor. But I digress.

Hmm, I actually really like how Jareth called it out. I figure that if you have a character totally capable of breaking the fourth wall (or is at least a little story savvy), then why wouldn't he get involved in order to save someone?

XD ERIK'S DEFORMITY IS AMAZING!!

Well, that sounded a little weird :P Let's rephrase that...
The way you drew Erik's deformity is amazing ^^

I LOVE it anytime you draw Jareth faceless and standing in a doorway. I don't really know why, I just do.


Ah, Jareth. No one ever appreciates it when you move the stars for them do they? Not, exactly, that you did all that much in this case, but it IS the thought that counts...

Poor Erik. Have a nice brood, dearie.

Which friend, incidentally? Are they on DA? Because I'd have to say I agree with that assessment and I'm interested to hear another opinion.

Ditto on the Jareth in the doorway thing. I think it may because it is just such a Jareth pose. Omg but he is so hot!

He really really is. :) And I'd agree on that one. It is quintessential Jareth. Part mysterious, part GQ, that's our Goblin King. ;)

I thought Labyrinth was a perfect coming of age story: Sarah literally runs the labyrinth to come and master herself without losing her sense of wonder and fantasy, only now it is a source of strength and not merely escape.

Hmmmmmmmm, I think jareth did the right thing*chocking on words*though erik has a right to be upset, so basically they both have a good reason.

Hmm what lessons can be learned in the labyrinth. Um...the only one I can think of is that there is a time and place for everything. Also saying it's not fair is just asking for it.

I understand Erik's perspective, but am still cheering over Jareth worrying about his friends.

I love what you do with Erik's scars and eyes. You make the grotesque fascinating.

Hmm, I'd say Sarah learned to take responsibility, to sometimes put others before herself, and to think things through more. Also, it gave her, like, a whole new definition for "sexy." Y'know, growing-up lessons. But actually I really like the end of Labyrinth because it reminds everyone that one does not have to always and forever put away childish things - it's okay to lean on people and have fun and use one's imagination.

But I guess her sense of good and evil is still pretty black and white at the end there, huh?

On the comic: I love the art today! The last two panels in particular, though sleepy Erik does make me smile.

Lovely page and might I just point out that Erik seems more and more at ease without his mask, especially around Jareth? Am I reading too much into it or should I enjoy my friendship feels?

There is practically no way to over-analyze or read too much into anything in Roommates. If it's not intentional, it may one day be.

True. The only lessons I learned from Labyrinth was that David Bowie is hot, Sarah was annoying, and songs about nothing are really fun to sing and dance to :D
