Roommates: Kings War 63 by AsheRhyder Roommates: Kings War 63 by AsheRhyder
Soundtrack for the next couple of pages: Heroes by MIKA.

Honestly, I'm having a hard time finding a good spot for this song, but it's such a powerful influence that I can't really let it go.

Erik belongs to Leroux and Webber.
Recognizable parts of the Labyrinth belong to Henson, Froud, and Lucas.
Norrington belongs to Disney, Bruckheimer, and Davenport.
Javert belongs to Hugo, Boublil, Schonberg, and Kretzmer.
Socks belongs to Story.

Mraaaaahhh! Socks! Mreh!
Jamie! You should know that someone intent on helping left to their own devices will find a way themselves!! *frustrative fingers*

Beautiful paneling and poses. And shading. No I will never be over your epic skills.


For a second I thought epic-cloaked-Eric was a black chicken... which would have had even mooore connotations...

Le Gasp! Socks honey, please don't do anything rash or impulsive... oh who am I kidding? That's probably EXACTLY what he's going to do. Oh my gosh, *covers eyes with fingers, cautiously peeking through them* I can't look!

Well, if a kid hero is told to stay put (or do chores or something mundane like that) (s)he has exactly one narrative choice: To disobey. Which most times either results in an adventure where adults are useless and (s)he has to save the day, or geting into trouble which in one way or another will motivate the adults (to help, to avenge, etc.)... or some combination of these two.


I kind of doubt Story had the "Adventure!" one in mind. :meow: Also... I'm sooo overdoing this. :facepalm:

What I'm having a hard time finding is that the boys didn't prepare some sort of defense or attack when the Ozains are coming for a landing. >>;

... Should've brought catapults or ballistics in case. >>;

He's a pre-teen lets be honest. Telling him not to do anything majorly upped his chances of doing all the things in the universe. *huddles in blanket in bunker and then looks around* I just realized something about this bunker we've been eating ice cream in and spectating from... Who made this bunker?! dun dun dunnn!

Do you remember what sort of connections Jareth has? Or never mind him, how about his father? Such large-scale destruction of the kingdom, had there been the
 would end badly for all those even indirectly responsible. There could be hell to pay- several different interpretations of Hell, plus the rigors of every folktale narrative dealing in ice, fire, beasts, madness, grief, and... inclement weather. Not necessarily all at once. Though admittedly it might be... heh heh... nicer that way.

Between the declaration about wanting to help and the tropes built into the Scribble Guy earlier, I have a bad feeling about what is to come. My predictions is either Socks follows after them, tries to rescue them from certain doom, and dies/almost dies in the attempt or he tries to help and James has to protect him, possibly being hurt/killed/almost killed in the attempt and thus opening Glinda's eyes to the fact he is a hero in this comic series. Either way works. Both possibilities are stuff that happens in stories and we all know how the power of narration is important in this comic.
