Looking at some of the previous comments I can't help but wonder if JamesxSarah will be a new ship by Roommates fans? A part of me sees the potential for shenanigans/character development/strengthening already established ships, but another part of me cringes at the idea. I love JarethxSarah and JamesxEponine too much! That and I'm probably over thinking things.
I believe I mentioned before how James taking the mantle of the Goblin king carried over Jareth's feelings for Sarah because it's an integral part of Jareth's character. When the Erlkonig lost Jareth to Jadis, it affected him enough that his theft of children to make up for his stolen son became a part of the mantle and is why Jareth took children when he took on the mantle. The mantle of the Goblin king seems to be affected by such strong emotions as the loss of a child or the finding of one's soulmate. The change therein created is passed on to the next in line to wear the mantle.
I wonder if having the Goblin King's powers and title (however temporary) gives one a special connection to the girl who ate the peach and forgot everything? I mean, even if he's still James, he is technically playing Jareth's role in the story by filling in for him, and magic has interesting rules. There was that moment between them before pony walked in the room.
I love white on black artwork. So much. I had a friend in art class back in high school who would fight with the teacher over whether or not you could do it. (Or rather, possibly if it would look good if you did, I don't know. I can't hear well XD. In an act of defiance, she painted a very Noir detective in white brush strokes on a black canvass. It looked so wonderful. Man, she showed him.
Residual? He didn't give back the pendant / goblin kingship yet.
I'm more and more convinced that Story will try to manipulate him into not giving it back (a kingdom, power, magic, adventure, heroism (with actual rewards!), a beautiful brunette girlfriend ... just give up this life of yours. Oh, and the girl isn't Éponine.)
