Roommates - Such Stuff as Dreams Are Made On - 24 by AsheRhyder Roommates - Such Stuff as Dreams Are Made On - 24 by AsheRhyder
For those of you who have not seen or didn't understand the movie Inception, the Asian guy here spent a better part of the film learning about or participating in dream manipulation...

Also, in case it's not clear, the thing on his forehead is dragon's pearl. More eastern mythology for you.

Jareth belongs to Henson, Lucas, and Bowie.
Saito belongs to Nolan and Watanabe.

...I might understand this better if I'd seen Inception. It's getting a bit clearer ow, though, I guess. And this arc is absolutely gorgeous, so I don't mind the confusion. (I approve of the whole animal thing. Symbolism is fun.)

I am remindeed suspiciously of my dragon-demi-god-morphing Chinese character who happens to be wizard at mind-travel...I think they would get along fabulously. Is that a piece of jade on his forehead? Because lol, that's the exact same thing that appears on my OC when he's in dragon form. Also, he occassionally also wears cool flowy robes like that, purple and turqouise with a pearl-string pattern, mostly when he's out in Dunhuang.

I'm still as hooked and impressed and all and Saito's evasive non-answers are so frusterating (what a troll). But special kudos to panels 2 and 3 - that piercing/thoughtful look on Jareth is pretty darn hott, and the close-up of Saito is a bold panelling choice pulled off most smoothly.

OK, aaaaaand - reveals soon plz!? :D

1) I hate my internet provider. (Yeah... almost 2 days of internet downtime when you're waiting for something is TORTURE!)
2) Did Saito's font changed? (It reverts back to non all-caps in the second to last panel though) :?

Hold up. Wasn't he the guy who... In Sarah's... Oh. Whoa. Okay. Got a little sidetracked there, so, (ahem) anyways. Saito looks le coooool! :D Also, at last someone's gonna put some of the real Jareth back up the surface! :D Also, also, thank you - and the gods - that you're updating quickly so I wouldn't have to die of anticipation too long! :D Also, also, also, darn. Now I reeeeeally need to get my hands on a good-quality copy of Inception. (sigh)

Proving once again that Saito always knows his stuff. Is it just me or would these two make the bestest of frenemies?


This arc is, seriously, just amazing (though that's not surprise given your wonderful sense of narrative, drama and humor!).

...

...am I correct in getting some serious Mirrormask vibes form this? Because I can totally see Jadis as the evil black queen!mommy, character; and the whole 'everyone is a reflection' and the mirror and the light and darkside, and the manipluation and the dream you always wanted and... yeah.
