I would be interested, but it does seem that Jareth has been the pivotal figure for the vast majority of the time, so I would like to see someone else come to the forefront.
While I'm here and while secondary characters (those who aren't in the main quartet) are in question I'll also mention that it would be very nice to see Eponine come into her own and not just be the chick in the 'minimalist' clothing who keeps pouncing on Jamie.

I wanted a vote about halfway between Intriguing storyline, and inscrutibility suits. Mebbe would be working better if you interspersed it between other chapters of the arc(s) in question. Would be like short breaks with LKFs (little known facts) about him. Love your portrayal of Erlkonig, and while I want desperately to know his motives, I like the idea that as a Fae, he is verra inscrutable

I'm always intrigued by the motives and back stories of the characters. The more we know about them, the more relatable and likeable (or at least understandable) they become. I'd love to see more of him. :)

I'd like to see this story too. Erl's motives are something I'm curious about. Yes, I will always call him Erl. Always.

I love the Erlkonig, and him being this story has just more levels of fun, and his reasons could be as creepy and awesome as he is!!!!

I would like to know so much more about his, but I still want him to have the fog of mystery always circling his feet, metaphorically

I enjoy his presence and it intrigues me. I must know more because this running around in the dark with him is kind of starting to confuse me. I like learning about him. He's real real cool. :)

Mysterious is a good thing, but it can only go so far. The Erlkonig is very attractive (as a character!) when his motivations are unknown, but if he remains that way, I will eventually get bored of him. That's why Steven Moffat isn't my favorite Who writer. I hate the way he keeps the fandom in the dark and tries to mislead them all the time. I mean no offense to anyone who does like Mr. Moffat's writing style. In conclusion (didn't mean to write an essay, but there you go) I think it's a good idea to tell us a bit more about the Erlkonig.

I was going to say I'd like his reasons to remain inscrutable, but then I thought how much I've really enjoyed the bits you've done with his and Jareth's motivations before and I think you would make a fascinating and poignant storyline out of it, so Yes, the potential for this storyline intrigues me. :)

I personally would prefer the focus to remain on our previously-established protagonists. I'm not all that fond of Elroking, but I wouldn't mind terribly if the vast majority of people vote in preference of him. (lol acting like my opinion matters)

Looking at the scores, my vote won't happen, but it was worth a shot picking the choice that would keep his own tasks and personal quests shrouded in mystery. Mystery is one of the most intriguing and attracting feature anyone could have in reality and this comic life. :)

As much as I would love to see more of Mr. King, I think the whole "inscrutable maybe-bad-guy" angle works better for him. But hey, whatever you do I'll be giddy over :hooray:

Somewhere in the middle of the Dreams arc I realised what an awesome thing you've done. You gave a few antagonists a chance to be the good guys and you had them face what at first appeared to be a truly evil villain, only to hint that he is, in fact, also a tragic anti-villain. Or something. Anyway, I thought it was pretty clever.
Maybe it's because of that or maybe I just like characters who are neither pure good nor pure evil (nor pure I-have-no-idea-what-is-going-on-but-omg-so-scary ;) ), but, yeah, I think I'd like to see a little more of the Erlkonig's motives.

Is there a "tentativly interested" button? I would read it (and to be honest I always love your stuff for the art even if I don't get whats going on) but my enjoyment would probably depend on what was happening in the story :)

Only if doing so doesn't hijack the regular Roommates stories. If you mean an ADDITIONAL set of stories, YES YES YES! (I'm a voracious reader & fangirl, I am.)

Personally, though, I'm curious about how the guys are settling in to their new, large apartment. Frex, how do Jamie & Javert deal with the fact that Jareth's glitter must positively seep through everywhere? And Erik's (less frequent now, but still...) dark and bitter broodings with loud organ music might seem louder?

And how did they handle trick or treat?

I just want MOAR of everything, I guess.

I've always thought that villainy is a matter of geography. I'm sure Jareth and James and Erick don't see them selves as
villains.... as for Jareth's daddy dearest, he is a hell of a lot easier to take than Mommy dearest!

I say go for it, knock my socks off...

I'm with ~AngelERenoir on this one; Jareth is always the one that moves the plot forward. He and Sarah seem to get more romance moments than anyone else. You could more or less replace the other roomies without changing things all that much. It would be nice to see a plotline that isn't escalated by magic.

YES. Because it's ALWAYS Jareth who gets huge story arcs. Any more of Jareth, and you might as well start calling this series "the Jareth saga" or something :ohnoes: Give the others story arcs too!

He's supposed to be mysterious.
Though as to why he's doing it?
I think that's just who he is.

The potential is intriguing, though I figure it's because, unlike Jadis, he actually gives a flying leap about his kids, and wants to make it up to Jareth for leaving him with Jadis.

I'd prefer you tease at it, drop hints every so often and allow us to draw our own conclusions. That way, we get an idea of who he really is, but he can still surprise us.

It makes him less like a villain. With the main characters of the comic being the villains of their own stories, it is nice to see a larger evil than them ^^; that's just my opinion. If you do end up revealing Erlkonig's motives, I'll still enjoy it.

I think I like stories better somewhat when there is no flat out evil villain. There's not really any utterly evil people in the world (IMO, anyway. We all -all- have something redeemable) and I like that this comic can make you hate situations without hating the people that brought them about.
