GND101 - The Game Changes by Pika-la-Cynique GND101 - The Game Changes by Pika-la-Cynique
Because what with the Sarah-loyal Goblins sweeping for cam-mounted rats and bugs, and now the Sneakoscope set to detect spy-crystals and like spells in the apartment... looks like the girls have stolen a march on the boys.

I told you there'd be some HP comin' in the mix at some point. :)


This is a work of fanart and solely intended for shits and giggles. Not mine, not making money from it.

Sarah and Jareth (c) Lucas, Froud, Henson; Connelly and Bowie

Rereading because this story is just so awesome and I focused on the art so much last time that I totally missed your input and the commentary on the pages.
I love your art. In this one (at least, what I noticed that made me want to comment) I particularly enjoy how well you have been drawing Jareth's costumes. Even in simpler outfits like this you really capture what we saw from the Labyrinth and I love it!!!!!!!!!! His little shoulder pieces and elegant shirts and whatnot. Loving it. :D
Jareth: "Oh chicken."

I love how smug Jareth looks before Sarah completely busts his bubble

LOVE how quickly Jareth is there, ready to come to the rescue! Too bad, lad (err... ummm... Kingy... ummm... Mr. Glittery Tightpants)

I really enjoy the shifting facial expressions in this one.

Panel 3 - a definite glare at the intruder. A hostess staring down a more-than-un-welcome party crasher
Panel 4 - Make the best of the moment, and get in a little snerking of her own
Panel 5 - slightly straighter art as she reveals to Jareth that she's capable of handling things on her own, with him losing out.
Panel 6 - D'oh! "Why does Luna have to comment scientifically right this moment?! I am NOT going to blush about this. I'm not. I'm not!"
Panel 8 - Ta-da!!!

Panel 3 - A touch of panic mingled in w/ curiosity and annoyance at that sound. I think he's still recovering from the (to him) mixed messages & emotions from the rooftop arc.
Panel 4 - His long face, trying for neutral & give-nothing-away-especially-do-not-indicate-that-he-doesn't-already-understand-it
Panel 6 - Smug / pleased-with-self. Any attention from Sarah is good attention, and if she describes him in such a manner it's definitely favorable!
Panel 7 - Implications are allowed to begin to dawn. I love the incredulity on his face. And is that a touch of "do not defy me" I spy?
Panel 8 - Ho, snap! Temporarily out-done, he will, very briefly, have begun to regroup.

It has occurred to me during this re-reading that Jareth has been interpreting his interactions with Sarah (and especially her responses) up to this point (i.e. Pre-CONVERSATION) as almost entirely positive in terms of advancing a courtship. Each objection that Sarah has is seen as a challenge for him to overcome, rather than something to be discussed and resolved. In fact, it's a game for him to win, with Sarah as the opponent AND the prize. While the moments of :aww: and fluff and connection are genuine, but he hasn't yet grasped their importance. (that if Sarah obviously has this attraction / interest / etc for him why would she keep denying it.) All of which you MORE THAN adequately present in their Conversation.

Which is a long way to say that Jareth doesn't see the girls' actions in this as any kind of rebuke.

/as always, happy fangirl ramblings are mostly self-musing & able to be ignored

26 hour? As in, the 26 hour rhythm mortals tend to keep in Death's household? (Discworld!Death, I mean...)
Pika-la-Cynique Featured By Owner May 20, 2012  Professional General Artist
Ha! Super interesting catch and poss. interpretation, but was more in reference to Jareth's 13-hour clocks.
Idea noted and squirelled away, mind you.
weaponmisstress Featured By Owner May 21, 2012
Dang, I need to watch Labyrinth, I keep missing these references...Sorry, I'm an avid Terry Pratchett reader, y'see, so that was the first thing I thought of...
Good luck with that one, I think it relates to the whole giant clock that doesn't tick and 8-day week dealie...might not though...
And thank you ^ ^

Oh wow! I've read this like 5 times and I never noticed that Jareth was wearing a different shirt from usual! Hahahaha I feel unobservant! Love this one! I like that Christine says 'Pervert detector', that was funny well it was funny in my measly opinion.

So earlier today I got flashed by some perv and needed a laugh, so I read myself some GND. May I just say; even after my little run-in, the crotch jokes are still absolutely hilarious. :D
Thank you so much for your wonderful story and artwork, and long live the crotch jokes!!
