Roommates - Such Stuff as Dreams Are Made On - 25 by AsheRhyder Roommates - Such Stuff as Dreams Are Made On - 25 by AsheRhyder
For those of you not familiar with easy listening or classical music, or those of you who don't know Italian, Figlio Perduto means "Lost Son" and is an Italian adaptation of the Erlkonig poem done to an unfinished piece of Beethoven's music. It's incredibly powerful (those of you who saw the King's Speech also got to hear it towards the end, playing in the background).

So yes, that's the ringtone for Jareth's dad... If that doesn't tip him off, nothing will.

Now... what's up with his hand?


Jareth and Sarah belong to Henson, Lucas, Bowie and Connelly.
Erlkönig is a mythological character and belongs to everyone and no one.
Figlio Perduto is written by Beethoven, with lyrics apparently by Chiara Ferrau.

Erlkonig: "After all, if I were to give away answers that readily, Jim Butcher's novels would be very short indeed."

My first thought was Schubert's adaptation of Erlkonig, which I absolutely love, and I'm a little sad that that wasn't it.

If that's his dad's hand, well... he DID have a knife when he was standing over Jareth, talking about the gift of mortality. Perhaps there was blood magic involved?

1. Erlkonig had a knife in the beginning of the story, he might have cut himself and then screwed up his own plans.

2. Jadis did it. I'm leaning closer to this one. It looks like maybe Erlkonig set this up to protect Jareth?

I love the Erlkonig poem. I didn't know you could actually call him. Being that this is the nooks and crannies of space, it's not - really.

So our plot thickens; someone's been messin with Erlkonig's plans in a big way. Not good, they'll be in for it from all sides lol. It's nice to know that his plans go as awry as his son's; makes him seem more humane ^.^

Great, between this and my Queensryche t-shirt, I now have "I Am I" stuck in my head. :-p

Also, I am VERY amused that the Erlking (dream version or no) apparently has back-ringtones.

Song translation (rough) for those curious:
Father, oh Father,
haven't you seen
the King of the Elves?
There he is.

Lost son,
Would you like to play?
I bring you joy,
come with me.

Father, oh father,
Did you hear what he said
and what he will do?

Lost son,
If you do not come with me,
I will use the power that I have.

Father, oh father,
the King of the Elves
is touching me.
He hurts me.

And the child,
His eyes closed,
Does not move.
He is already lost.

That is Erlkönig in the last panel, correct? Then, why does his silhouette look like the normal world Erik...? OH JESUS everybody got that before me, didn't they?

Ooh both Fae!Jareth and Mortal!Jareth are starting to realize something is wrong. Jareth calling the Erlkonig on his cell phone tickles me :) Its just so modern and human and unexpected for either of them though I expect it only works because they are in the Normal!dream-world. I noticed that the Erlkonig is in his human guise is that because he is in the normal!dream world or is he back in the real world controlling whats going on from the outside? I hope Not-Sarah isnt listening in because otherwise things could ugly. Really enjoying this arc!
