Roommates: Twilight Waltz by AsheRhyder Roommates: Twilight Waltz by AsheRhyder
This... was supposed to be the cover for the 250 mark, but since that fell in the middle of Such Stuff as Dreams Are Made On, I kind of forgot about it. (It was completed sometime in December. If you want some kind of idea about how long I was working on these, back in December we were only just starting the Sick!Jareth arc, and it had not yet been revealed that Mrs. N was totally in the know.)

So, Six months later, here's a filler cover. Back to work on the biiiiig project. I'm combining the next cover with the anniversary celebration image, because it's just that much work.



Erlkönig is a mythological character and belongs to everyone and no one.
Mrs. Norrington is, to my knowledge, mine.

1.) Can't wait when Mrs. N reveals that she knows.

2.) Stepparents meeting would be awesome.

3.) Will you do one of Captain J +crew vs. Mrs. N (& maybe her beau)?

I don't know if it was intentional, but mrs. Norrington totally seems to be looking at the true Erlkönig behind the illusion. Well done.

I don't. I obsessively ship these two. :meow: Even if this is definitely a Mind Game Ship of the evenly matched variant. Oh, the beautiful games they will play from Xanatos Speed Chess to Gambit Pileup. :love: (I can so see them keeping score.)

He doesn't really know what love is. (He himself admitted this to his ex in Such Stuff. And to be captain obvious fae aren't human.) From his point of view he is playing with a human woman (and messing with his son's life)... Only he found his match as Mrs. N. is willingly playing with him too (as she figured him out long ago). She is out of a bad (probably arranged, loveless and dull) relationship so her motivation is FUN. :D

hmmm.... well, I'm always for the equal/opposite compatibility relationships. . . . must be because that's my parent's relationship to a T. At the same time, the interest is Mrs. N. is definitly gonna teach him a little about love. No one really understand it until they are in it. . . and even then, it's still a mystery. I'm required, I think, to make allowances, because clearly Javert is in love (Sarah is totally his equal, and they totally compliment eachother) but he doesn't really know how to deal with it, because he's never had to do it before, and on top of that he's a little spoiled. (shrug) what can I say, he's Fae! :D

Mr. King seems to know a lot about love but his knowledge is mostly theoretical (and he apparently also knows that it has power, this is why he tried to rise his son more normally maybe so he can know love)... really falling in love would be quite the surprise for him. :D

Jareth tries to somehow balance out his inhuman nature and more normal wishes and feelings (Which he has thanks to Mr. King).

hmmmm. I've never thought about it like that. Maybe it's just my wishful thinking, but I WANT Mr. King to be surprised. it'll make for a good scene, in any case. . . why does Jareth have these normal wishes and feelings. . . is that more like rebelliousness? Jareth doesn't want to be like his father, so he tries to be more human, subconciously, at least in feeling?

I hope that the Mr. King Mrs. N. relationship turns into love too. :love:

Jareth: From what we know of his past. There are at least 3 sources for his story fighting / normal wishes:
A) The rebelling (with such parents pretty understandable).
B) His childhood promise to Sarah (he didn't use the promise font but promises have great power amongst the Fae).
C) His father's teachings (from Jadis' raction, that heartwarming dream scene (or something close to that) where Mr. King tells Small!Jareth the story of Swan Lake and that he should fight for the ending / girl / etc. he wants probably really happened.)

In a world that faces zombie apocalypses, Jame's being not-so-dead, time travel, Sweeney Todd, the Repo cast, Loki, Tony Stark, The tenth doctor, Dr. House, Indiana Jones, talking puppets, talking dogs, Frodo and his Ringwraith stalkers, and just about everything else that goes on during a daily basis..........

I think these two are the closest thing to being normal.

On the other hand this could turn into love or something close to that.
But chances are that they wont really notice until one of them gets in danger or something like that and the other finds her/him/itself genuinely concerned (or flying into Unstoppable Rage and heaven help the poor anything dangering the wellbeing of her/his/its favorite toy). :giggle:

Well, we'll just have to see how their relationship turns out. Ashe is full of surprises. Who knows what she'll throw at us if there ever comes a time to tell the story of James' mother's relationship with Jareth's dad?

That's true. Their relationship was a surprise at the beginning so it will probably continue to add surprises (and subvert many many Supernatural Romance tropes) :giggle:
