Roommates - Such Stuff as Dreams Are Made On - 21 by AsheRhyder Roommates - Such Stuff as Dreams Are Made On - 21 by AsheRhyder
More trippy symbolism, and a headnod to Mr. Bowie's influence. That bottom part of the page is to be read on the left side of the glass, top to bottom, and then on the right side.


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

So now I’m wondering who GK!Jareth is talking to in that last panel. My guess is Sarah.

…ooooooor is it simply the conversation on the left being continued and it isn’t actually the GK speaking, but mortal!Jareth and Odile!Sarah?

XD Wow, I totally never made the connection between Bowie's hurt eye and Jareth's eye patch. That's pretty cool. I wouldn't put it past Eric to move the mirrors around and with the reference to him the last panel(s) are very Phantom-esque. No wonder Jareth and Eric hit it off so well. :D

Ohhh that last double panel. The conversation. The symbolism. The dearly-missed Proper!GK and his confused Other!Self, drawn wonderfully well. Eee.

DANG IT. I'm getting confused again :doh: I'm starting to wonder if Jareth even realizes that the person on the other side of the mirror is his real self... Or maybe not...? Ugh. Confusiooooooonnnn... :doh:

I have to admit that while I love this page, the dialogue in the final panel confuses the hell out of me in conjunction with the second to last.

Ahhh, the shadows in the previous page makes more sense now - one is a representation of Odile and her influence isn't it, the panther being whatever beings are trying to help Jareth? It makes sense now that I've seen the owl (Im assuming that Jareth) beating down a swan.

Alice in Through the Looking-Glass much? Parallel universe indeed.
The story about his eye happening because of a girl is consistent with Bowie himself, not with Jareth and his Fae-ness. Hmmmm....

ok... so, I guess the possessed-ish people with the white eyes are Jareth's dad trying to help him, and Sarah illusion is the mom's control. so I guess the freaky Erik and others are the good guys?!? maybe trying to snap him out of whatever magical fever dream he's in?!? I don't know!
I totally got the bowie reference! WOOP WOOP!

You know what..? I never connected David Bowie's eye injury as a possible explanation to Jareth's current eye predicament... maybe it's not actually for the sake of the story, but it's a nice cover-up. Still wish I could connect more of the dots by now. I still feel like I'm over-looking so many details...
