Roommates - Such Stuff as Dreams Are Made On 42 by AsheRhyder Roommates - Such Stuff as Dreams Are Made On 42 by AsheRhyder
If we shadows have offended... actually, this *is* canon. For those of you still confused, it boils down to this: Erlkonig and Jadis played Xanatos Gambit Speed Chess until James switched the game board and Jareth tossed them both out of the tournament.

Thank you all for coming along on this endeavor with me. 42 pages. Huh. Who would have thought. I hope you enjoyed.


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.
Erlkönig is a mythological character and belongs to everyone and no one.

Heh heh heh. A nice ending, and good for you, having a subtle nod to the ending of Labyrinth with the eagle/raven. Jareth, in this universe, whether you like it or not, you have friends you can call on when you're in trouble. Please, use that opportunity whenever necessary.

But Jareth you have something so much better than your insane family (even though your dad does seem very sorry for what he did).

You have your nakama.

Ok, I will have to say I 'Get it' now that I have read them all in succession. Before, when they were each coming out I couldn't follow. So now that it is over and I've gone back over it, what a lovely story!

I feel like Jareth and James are closer to each other than to the others, even before this arc, when James asked Jareth for no magic when his mom visited, for example, and when James forgave Jareth for another.

I'm curious about how deep their bond is.

Could you please explain the last panel? I thought at the end of the day they were his friends, come into the dream to assist him. That last panel speaks otherwise though.

"My family isn't like that" - wääääh. Together with the hug - oh geee.
And then Erlkoenig watching over him, showing how much he DOES care for his son in his own (to us humans probably extremely twisted) way...

Ok, hand me the issus before I kill my notebook. Again.
