GND-Speshul -Midsummer Madness by Pika-la-Cynique GND-Speshul -Midsummer Madness by Pika-la-Cynique
In which a certain famous literary work is spoofed, the English language is mangled, all a Goblin King's genre-savviness is to no avail, and slashers are gently mocked.


As credited above, this idea was all thanks to a brilliant suggestion by *Skyen , and a few lines are lifted straight from that wacky ol'Bill Shakes. I kinda missed the June 21st proper date fo posting this, but nevermind that.

I'll willingly admit I'm drawing heavily from Neil Gaiman's depiction of the Puck in The Sandman - where the "merry wanderer of the night" is rather a "psychotic menace to life and limbs, more like...". And while I wouldn't do it in a straighter fic, I can't help but think that GND-Jareth, what with his mummy issues and his (nearly) ever-Failerriffic adventures in the Building... isn't frankly about to inspire fear and respect in the Puck, who's an irreverent trickster even at his best...

Damn, makes you want to see what would happen if Puck HAD done what Jareth asked *eyebrow waggle*

The one saying "Lo!" looks like Puck from Gargoyles. :)

I am totally LOVING the shadow effect in Panel 1. Seriously, it helps Jareth try to convey a Suitably Dramatic moment of Importance (or somesuch).

:happybounce: Goblin King trying to look / sound bored, but really hiding that latent optimistic streak.

That was how Skyen sold the notion to me, really. Because I was like, Fail-Field + Puck + crossover with a story that is already a comedy of errors, how did Jareth even consider such a terrible idea? and he had the unarguable rejoinder that as far as Jareth's concerned, he has no more that the usual to lose and it's always worth a shot.
