Roommates - Such Stuff as Dreams Are Made On 41 by AsheRhyder Roommates - Such Stuff as Dreams Are Made On 41 by AsheRhyder
I am rather fond of the idea that every magical "court" has a theme. Some purview, if you will, that abstractly frames it. Jadis is, obviously, Winter. The Erlkonig is currently balancing somewhere between Summer, Forest, and Night. The Goblins are "unwanted".


Erik belongs to Leroux and Webber.
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.
Jadis belongs to Lewis.
Erlkönig is a mythological character and belongs to everyone and no one.

I'm curious what you theorize happens to a character in your afterlife comic when they die, if they've already died before in canon. Do they just cease to be? :) Been on my mind lately. And this is one of my favorite pages.

Can Javert just somewhat-at-least-finally-for-once-actually APPRECIATE HIS ROOMMATE NOW? Because that's been lacking before... I don't think even our sometime "marble-hearted informer" could be unaffected by all this.

That's what the Goblin Kingdom was, after all, wasn't it? A place for the unwanted. At least, that's what I think. Nobody likes Goblins (in the world) right? So, there was a place for them to be, a refuge, in all its Hoggle-peeing-statues and random chicken glory. And Jareth was its king.
You seriously are, like, an abnormally awesome person.

Headcanon accepted (about the theme of goblins being unwanted, and that being the theme of Jareth's court. Considering Bowie's character interpretation that Jareth is a reluctant king, it's practically canon). And it makes sense why his friendships are as strong as they are, being made of the unwanted (so to speak. We want all of them.).

I believe it was a Grand Soul Gem. Has the Erlkonig been hanging out with Hircine? They do have somewhat similar tastes in head-wear.

Let me guess you don't read things like the Dresden Files? :giggle: I'll just say this: Making deals with the fae is dangerous. (Dresden even has a fairy godmother... he wishes he hasn't.) :D

Dresden's girlfriend made a bargain once with the guy's Fairy Godmother. Something for Dresden for a years worth of memory.

She never said it will be one continuous piece. She took everything involving Dresden. The question was: "Who are you?" (And this in the middle of a literal Vampire ball.)

Panel Four and the last one are my absolute favorites. And James' comment just made me giggle...

I think the only thing that kept Jareth from punching the Erikonig in the face was that he brought them to him... That was a very wise move on his part.

I LOVE WITH MUCH LOVING. Like, really.

And I find it interesting that your comic has gradually become more serious (while still retaining it's inherent funniness). For instance, in earlier comics, due to the Fail-Field around the building, much of this would have gone south for His Nibs long ago (like, 30 pages ago). Perhaps because they are in a "realm of Erlkonig's creation," the usual 'verse traditions don't apply so much?

I didn't dare to write this before... :paranoid: but here maybe not many will see it (new page in some hours and all). So I thought... if the GND canon about Jadis' new "boyfriend" also applies here (and I saw nothing that would indicate that it doesn't) and we look at the design of her ex.. Her fetishes are showing. Or should I write: she's compensating for something? :blush: Now I feel dirty but I had to write this. :ashamed:

What's said is said: this is a work of art.

Also, how ironic is it that Jadis (who was human a very long time ago, I think) does not get it but the Erlkönig (who has always been fae) may be kinda sorta starting to?
