Roommates - Such Stuff as Dreams Are Made On - 26 by AsheRhyder Roommates - Such Stuff as Dreams Are Made On - 26 by AsheRhyder
Because I simply cannot wait for this reveal.


As a note; the events in the black bordered parts are, indeed, flashbacks. Anything outside of a speech bubble is not, as mortals understand it, spoken out loud.


Jareth belongs to Henson, Lucas, and Bowie.
Erlkönig is a mythological character and belongs to everyone and no one.
The Tempest belongs to Shakespeare.

A couple months ago at work, we had a window-decorating contest to celebrate our imminent move to a new building. One of the windows had the more complete quote (which I forget at the moment) that ended with "Now I want spirits to enforce, arts to enchant, and my ending is despair..."

And somehow, for an entire month, I resisted the urge to add "Unless I be relieved by prayer!"

For a second there, I thought he would stab Jareth... Good to know he's The Good Parent. :D But why did he stab his own hand?????? :O And what of Mommy Dearest's plan...? GAH! At least I got some things cleared up! :D

To seal his son's left eye (probably the symbol of Jareth's magical heritage) with his blood. Blood Magic! :meow:

Who knows? (Ashe)
- Maybe Jareth is so powerful that he needs an extra powerful focus (freely given blood of a close relative who is a fair folk royal sounds like potent to me).
- Or he could just be a show-off (he HAS a thing for the over-dramatic/poetic).
- Or maybe something completely different. :D

(Of course Ashe would know XD)
- That sounds quite probable... a little weird, though =P
- Yes, that too XD
- Gah. Hopefully, it would be explained in the next page X3

Magic is weird. :D (And I'm captain obvious) We already have rules here like Jareth (he is the magical being with the most panel time) "can't tell the Right Words to anybody even if he wanted to" and "can't promise things he can't keep in his Geas voice (in double-lined letters)".

Love Erlkonig's armor... it's so intricate. Must have taken you ages to do that.

I love that Erlkonig uses Prospero's lines. And his face in that last pannel. Just unf. Want to hug him so bad. :(

:excited: I like this arc so much! And I know I have said so before, but I have to say it again: I love your (new) style and Erlkönigsarmor looks fantastic! :heart:

Also, this revelation... it seems, that not all is as dire as I suspected it to be. What he has done, is a bit disturbing, but also oddly sweet of Erlkönig. And I'm glad to know, that he did not stab Jareth in the eye :phew:

Well that explains why Jareth wears the eyepatch. However, I'm quite surprised Jareth didn't wake up instantly when feeling something wet dripping on his face. He's probably a heavy sleeper.

It's sweet how Erlkonig did for his son, even if it's one day of dream. However, I also cannot help that Erlkonig is also "redeeming himself" through Jareth. >>;
