Roommates - Such Stuff as Dreams Are Made On - 13 by AsheRhyder Roommates - Such Stuff as Dreams Are Made On - 13 by AsheRhyder
To this day, I have never been able to find any information on whether "heart pointing inward" meant the actual point of the heart was in the direction of the wrist or the knuckles, so if anyone has experience in that regard and I am incorrect in my portrayal, please, please forgive me. (And let me know, because it's driven me nuts ever since I heard about it.)

My, that ring is ominous...

Jareth and Sarah belong to Henson, Lucas, Bowie and Connelly.
Norrington belongs to Disney, Bruckheimer, and Davenport.
Javert belongs to Hugo, Boublil, Schonberg, and Kretzmer.

That ring is gorgeous. Again, the level of research that must have gone into this is so deep and wonderful.

Oh, how I love that line!  I'll be using it every chance I get.

I didn't actually know what the heart facing in meant, so a quick google search yielded answers and PICTURES!
Looks like you had "heart-facing-in" right from the start.

Nah. He is just snarky. The girls tend to get the engagement rings.

ooo cool ring
Marizelda Featured By Owner Mar 13, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Nvm, I was right about the ring, in a manner of speaking.
Badassninja137 Featured By Owner Mar 4, 2013  Student Traditional Artist
That ring looks like a tree.
I just got a Nightmare Before Christmas vibey thing.
Aand now 'This is Halloween is stuck in my head. XD
Is that a Cladaha (crap spelling) ring?
I own one of those...
It was my moms she gave it to me.
And now just read further in. Yep, i'm an idiot XD

Technically, wearing the ring like that on his left hand, he's signaling that he's married, but I won't fault you for it. The only reason I know is because a friend of mine has one and explained it to me. :-P The way it works is this:
Right hand, heart pointing outwards, or held out to the world as my friend termed it: single
Right hand, heart pointing inwards: in a relationship
Left hand, heart held outwards: engaged
Left hand, heart pointing inwards: married.

I love the chibis in panel five. XD

He can snark-he'll be fine. I love you Javert! Apparently I'm the girl in the relationship. . . <3

I found something about the claddagh ring. you can read on here [link] if the ring is on the left hand tip of the heart pointing towards knuckles meant you were engaged. Left hand the same way can be single looking for love, or single not interested.
ElaineRose Featured By Owner Jul 27, 2012  Student Writer
Heart pointing inward means the actual point of the heart, not the point of the crown. (Catching up on backlog like a silent creeper, so forgive me if someone else has already clarified that.)
hippiewitch27 Featured By Owner Jun 20, 2012  Student Writer
Creepy claddagh, but still cool because i understand the reference
Ana-Shadow-Wolf Featured By Owner Jun 13, 2012
Well, not that the ring is not pretty or anything, but... Just what the hell happened in this world, dream, whatever??? What his dad did to him? This is too strange to be only a "showing-him-how-his-life-would-be-if-he-were-human"
RumCake37 Featured By Owner May 15, 2012
The theory of the heart in the ring is that if it's pointing toward you (looks like it's right side up when you look at your hand -- facing your wrist) then you're heart is taken and not on the market; if it's pointing out toward your knuckles and it looks right side up to other people, then you're available.
ginnylovesharry159 Featured By Owner Apr 7, 2012
.... the irony is that I'm wearing a silver claddagh on my left ring finger and the heart's pointing to my knuckles...... and I've been wearing it a long time......
Darned4AllEternity Featured By Owner Apr 3, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
That ring is confusing me. >___> Glad that not much changed in Sarah's appearance, though :D But... what's with the glitter in Jareth's head??? I always see it when ... something (I don't know what exactly yet) ... happens to Jareth...
lazulitehalcyon Featured By Owner Apr 1, 2012
Point of the heart toward the wrist. It's how I wear my wedding band.
kendermouse Featured By Owner Mar 31, 2012
Loving this so far. And while that ring may seem ominous, I'd love to have one like it.
moonyoko Featured By Owner Mar 31, 2012
I believe the base of the heart is towards the wrist if taken with those, so the crown is towards the fingers, but again, I may be off myself.
Keep the good stuff coming.
AteMozzarella Featured By Owner Mar 30, 2012  Student General Artist
Beeaaaauuutiful ring though.
GryphonFledgling Featured By Owner Mar 30, 2012
Fifth panel for the win. Also, ominous second to last panel is ominous?
Ella0905 Featured By Owner Mar 30, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
My stepdad has a ring like that! I think you're right with the direction, it's just generally it only points that way when you're married.
LadyMidnight81 Featured By Owner Mar 29, 2012  Professional Writer
yeah, it means the point of the heart should point in toward the wrist, but that means that you are married, if they're just ebgaged it should be on his left hand still but point toward the tip of the fingers, that's an interesting take on a Claddagh design, but definitely mighty ominous looking, can't wait for the next one :D

SQUEEE!!!!! This is gonna be so cool!:iconx3v2plz:
Indigo-Night-Wisp Featured By Owner Mar 29, 2012
It is rather. Hehe. Jareth has an ominous ring...

Oh, and now the lady herself is gracing us with her presence...

Right, so Javert dropping Jareth and making that little comment about the snark just made my day. :)
fateavernicus Featured By Owner Mar 29, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
can we keep this as the permenet jareth i mean its rare for him not to ware tights and all
DeiPie Featured By Owner Mar 29, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
I'm excited for this!!! :"D
ObsidianPyre Featured By Owner Mar 29, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
You're right, it's the pointed part of the heart that has to be poinging inwards. No worries. :D I have a Claddagh ring from my own fiancee, and know several friends and acquaintences who also have them/have had them and all agree: it's the point of the heart that faces inwards, outwards, wherever you need it to point.
Fhar Featured By Owner Mar 29, 2012
That's a very spectacular ring.
Blue-Mouse007 Featured By Owner Mar 29, 2012
I know Claddagh rings. I have one. On the right hand, if the crown is towards the knuckles, then you're single, flipped, you're in a relationship. On the left hand, if the crown is towards the knuckles then you're engaged, and flipped it means you're married. So unless Jareth is already married to Sarah, he shouldn't be wearing it like that.
Spades-Kings Featured By Owner Mar 29, 2012
Wikipedia for Claddagh Ring describes it as towards the wrist and towards the fingers, though I wouldn't know if that's what you mean by inward/outward. 'Course, wikipedia isn't always correct...
crazfool Featured By Owner Mar 29, 2012
*snort* of course hes ok if he snarks.... oh javert...

I've never heard anything about that heart thing, but I agree it's ominous, and lovely...

oh Jareth, why are so cute at everything you do?
Arkiel-Pixie Featured By Owner Mar 29, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Thought I noticed that a few pages ago.
atsuyuri-sama Featured By Owner Mar 28, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
*blink* He snarks. Of COURSE he must be fine.

Oh. Hi, Sarah. Miss your man? Cool, 'cause he's just taken a step off the deep end this morning, no big deal. He is, after all, the girl in the relationship, what with the ring and all. Have fun, Princess!

(Meh snarkiness is very snarky, yes? :D)
GingerDarkness Featured By Owner Mar 28, 2012  Hobbyist Artist
Yes, that ring IS rather ominous...

I am so totally in love with this story, even though I have no clue as to what is going on!!!

I love that he has a Claddaugh ring! That's what my husband and I wear. I love the design on it! And you have it correct.
Fya85 Featured By Owner Mar 28, 2012
I'm gonna be honest, I didn't actually notice his ring 'till Javert pointed it out...

YAAAAAY~ They're engaged!

But while I think Jareth's going to be ok with it for a while, he eventually is going to realize that something is wrong and smash the ballroom wall with a chair snap out of it.

Heart pointing inward means that the pointy tip of the heart is facing your wrist. That way the crown on the other end protects your love! :)
