GND111 - Beneficiary, too by Pika-la-Cynique GND111 - Beneficiary, too by Pika-la-Cynique
:) I missed getting to bounce off 'Roommates' storylines on occasion. Glad you're back at it, Ashe.

This week's page with scathing meta social commentary for free!

Funny how the boys seem quite nonplussed at finding themselves on the other end of a stalker/stalkee dynamic... Still, can't blame the girl for trying.


- This is directly in response to [link]
- The whole Erik/Mag/Christine issue remains a fuzzy yet-to-be-resolved issue in my mind and thus in strict GND continuity. However, you can assume the current situation in Roommates (ie, something of an open Erik/Mag ... agreement) carries over here for now.
- Were you to bring up a quote regarding pots and kettles in a discussion with Jareth, I believe his only reaction would be to claim he looks sexy in black.
- Yes, they are eating out because of the Pale Man still in their kitchen.


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

Jareth (c) Lucas, Froud, Henson; Bowie
Erik (c) Leroux and Webber
Cheryl (c) me!
Javert (c) Hugo, Boublil, Schonberg, and Kretzmer.

Based on the original Roommates comic by *AsheRhyder

Mag. Blind Mag, from Repo! The Genetic Opera. Explained in comments above.

It really is bizarre to go to the link and be reminded of the two very different artistic styles that govern this universe.

I love this comic so much simply by the fact that the casts' favorite resturant is a sushi joint. It's funny because me and my friends have this tradition of getting together about once a month to talk anime and manga over sushi from this place called Suki's.

Why would she walk away after putting herself out there?
Go girl! 
Midoriko-sama Featured By Owner Mar 11, 2014
Honestly though, not far into this, but I'd really like to see how Sarah would react if Jareth REALLY started seeing someone else. Or just ... gave up. Stopped running after HER. :3 would be a fey tactic, of course ... but it may just work XD
Pika-la-Cynique Featured By Owner Mar 16, 2014  Professional General Artist
Hmm. I've discussed this with some other commenters - yes, the Green Eyed Epiphany trope would probably indeed jolt Sarah into a clearer realization of her fondness for Jareth. Making her jealous is a cliché but it would work, methinks. Which is why I just take perverse glee in trying to NOT make use of it; there's something I just like about Jareth being completely openly in deep smit with her and Sarah flailing to deal with his courtship.
Not that I've entirely ruled out bringing in some disruptive characters...
Midoriko-sama Featured By Owner Sep 10, 2014
Then again, you brought in his mum. Seriously, disruptive should have her photo next to the word on the dictionary.

Just put Mag with Erik, that solves everything! (And no, this has nothing to do with my name being Mag and my developing crush on Eric...)
I love how the Pale Man is in their kitchen~;]

It was so freaking funny to see Erik be all innocent on this one topic. But to have Jareth be the translator... it's freakin' EPIC!
hikaphoenix Featured By Owner Jul 10, 2011
I love Cheryl! She needs a fantasy guy to hit on her in some future panel!
How about Sookie getting a job there with Cheryl :)

Panels 7,8,9 - Please don't take this as nitpicking, but it's something I noticed. Did the waitress flick her gaze between the two deer-in-headlights blokes between the panels? From Erik to Jareth and back to Erik?

I like the intercourse where Javert assigns Jareth the Sex Talk (But Updated!).
Pika-la-Cynique Featured By Owner Aug 12, 2010  Professional General Artist
Yes, she did. She's hopeful and not particularly picky faced with those two.

I LOVE the last few panels XD!!!!

Oh! The shirt Cheryl was wearing made me think shewas Sookie from True Blood for a second.

It look alot like a Merlotte's employee Shirt
Pika-la-Cynique Featured By Owner Jul 14, 2010  Professional General Artist
Yeah, I realized that afterwards.

... I guess I was impatient for season 3 to start. ^^;
2sweet464 Featured By Owner Jul 16, 2010
My sisters don't have deviant accounts, but as soon as they walked by the computer they tackled me asking if there were any True Blood comics.

Lol. This is hilarious. But my favorite part is your comment that they're eating out because the Pale Man is still in their kitchen. :P
neofeliss Featured By Owner Jun 24, 2010  Student Digital Artist
Funny thing is, I've had that type of creepy waitress. We were eating out at a Chinese restaurant, and our waitress kept insisting that she "loved our laundry" and "it smelled like her mother's". :|

It took us forever to figure out what she meant. She was quite embarassed. XD

As Erik is, apparently. Jeez, Jareth, let the poor boy breathe. D:

you've gotta love Cheryl!

Xandi5anders Featured By Owner Jun 21, 2010
Pah. The 80s had standards, like to use condoms to avoid the AIDS epidemic. Although...Jareth was roofie peaching people...I think the lack of standards is just in him. ^^; He doesn't take "no" as an answer, just "you have no power over me".
Pika-la-Cynique Featured By Owner Jun 21, 2010  Professional General Artist
Oh. I don't think the 'standads' dig was so much about Jareth's 80s movie provenance as it is about "wherever/whenever it is you Goblins/Fae/freaks come from anyway..."
DragonsSpirit60 Featured By Owner Jun 21, 2010
Oh My Gosh... fuuunnnyyyyyyy... lol

Man, you two bring such a joy into my life, really.

Btw, love the layout with this one. I'm constantly feeling as if I'm becoming more and more enlightened with the possibilities with every page you create. Thank you.
Pika-la-Cynique Featured By Owner Jun 21, 2010  Professional General Artist
Why thank you!
kalirose15 Featured By Owner Jun 21, 2010
LOL. Love Erik's face! He has so many weird expressions from "OMG I SCORED AND HAVE NO MEMORY OF THIS" to rage to outright "WTF?!?" to even that sad puppy face he had when he brought flowers to Sarah. Is there a reason we never get to see him unmasked, though?
