Roommates by AsheRhyder Roommates by AsheRhyder
Hoops were jumped through in order to post this. Many, many hoops.

Taking off on the idea that the Jareth and Erik muses are roommates in some out-of-canon dimension, I give you the boys moving into their new room.

This picture also serves as the prize for the 9k Kiriban. Congrats, Yami!

Hopefully, it won't take quite so long to get the 10k one done.

Erik and Phantom of the Opera belong to Leroux and Webber, Jareth and Labyrinth belong to Henson, Bowie, and Lucas.

I love this series! Let me tell you that I'm also promoting it on my blog "Milky Way of Books" where I post reviews on YA novels, movies and comics. ;)

Wow, Erik. That's quite a bit of cursing. Just remember, he's from a PG movie. (notices James and Javert in the background) That is just too funny! XD

Later...

Jareth: "Check this out, a Roland keyboard!"
Erik: "Electronic trash."
Jareth: "Well at least I don't have to touch another man's organ."
Erik: "...was that double entendre intentional?"

Yay for meta-ness!  LOVE how it's clear from the beginning that this wasn't going to be any "ordinary" cross-over web-comic.

And Erik's box labeled "stress marks". :D  Poor guy... he needs to do some de-stressing (like yoga ;) ) to help cope with all of that stress in his life.

I'm more familiar with Pika's Girls Next Door series, but your original Roommates has its fair share of comical moments. I giggled at the unnamed guys in the background putting censor bars over Erik's words. :giggle:
Also, customized rooms are a cool idea. ^_^

When you drew this almost 6 years ago, did you ever think it would turn into a over 300-page weekly/bi-weekly strip with totally epic plotlines, a huge fanbase and a list of crossovers and cameos as long as a person's arm?

When I read this, I HAD to find more! From then on, I was hooked! :happybounce: please continue to make your wonderful, fantastic comic! :iconchuuplz: :heart:

Stress marks... Yes I suppose anyone would need a good supply living with Jareth. I feel similarly towards my piano, Erik. Just be glad you don't have younger siblings who will try to eat food on it, and don't let guests near it. For some reason people are always drawn to plunk away, despite an obvious lack of skill or training and you will feel an unbearable urge to correct their hand-postion, even though that could be taken as rude.
