GND128 - Things Remembered by Pika-la-Cynique GND128 - Things Remembered by Pika-la-Cynique
Aaaaaand groundwork layed way back in GND#35 ( [link] ) flying-bricks its way back into the plot! Hands up and virtual cookies if you called it, and if you didn't -- good! I'd hate to be that predictable.

I think you can all at this point assume that Valentines' Day 2011 will NOT involve fluttering JS kisses...

Colour once again by the multi-talented and ever-helpful :iconmercuralis: :aww:


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

Sarah and Jareth (c) Lucas, Froud, Henson; Connelly and Bowie
Erik (c) Leroux and Webber.

Based on the original Roommates comic by :iconasherhyder:

 Yknow, that dress looks a lot like the one that Sarah ends up wearing in the ballroom pages and pages from now. The hair is similar too. I wonder if she or Jareth was subconsciously inspired, or perhaps both! Thank you so much for this wonderful comic, I'm going crazy with finals and this helps so much

well, no poofy white dress and it wasn't that navel baring number that Darkness stuffed in there. Points to Jareth for originality

It's a melding of dreams, I think Sarah has something to do also with the dress update.

Is this a reference to the Phantom of the Opera, when Christine is moping about the one who calls her name?

Ahh, nope.

You know who I'd like to see in one of these? Llamas with hats. Carl and Paul both arguing over some dead body they found in their apartment. Or HEY since Paul moved out he could be moving in and Carl could like come to visit and stuff. Can you imagine the shenanigans to follow from something like that?

Dear lord that'd be AWESOME!

Way to go continuity! 
Love the top page!!!  Heart 
It's been nice knowing you Jareth.

Sarah: "I'm so sorry, Eric! I didn't mean to put you in the hospital!  T-T"

Good going, Erik.
She might have produced heirs that night if it weren't for you.

Fantastic ;D

So I just found your comic and have spent every free second trying to gobble it up. I just love you work! And I LOVE this colored page! I'm such a cheesy fan girl. Totally ready for the two of them to get together :) I have a long way to go till I'm caught up though. Keep it up. Love it!
Pika-la-Cynique Featured By Owner Feb 8, 2014  Professional General Artist
:D Thanks! Hope you enjoy(ed) the rest. Sorry you found the comic at a time of patchy updates, but glad to entertain! Plenty of cheese ahead, but I can't guarantee a swift hook-up between those two stubborn kids. ;)
savannarodriguez Featured By Owner Feb 9, 2014  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
I've caught up now. Just so tickled to have found your work! Keep it up. And of course I know you'll drag it out on me, by really, I'm sure deep down I prefer it that way.

Thank you Erik for ruin one of the most beautiful pages in the whole comic! Where is my punjab lasso?

And #582 on the list of Why I Should Really Go to Sleep at a Reasonable Hour:

I have a plot-bunny attempting to hatch. Yes, plot-bunnies hatch. It's usually a quick process, and no stopping it. And somewhat related to the reproductive habits of tribbles.

But I've got an idea about that blue dress and current events.


That's what I get for not sleeping soon enough AND for having written one spin-off fic already.

I still squee and melt all over when I re-read this one!

*whistles innocently, and shoves you into plotbunny pit*
Kyndsie Featured By Owner May 22, 2013  Hobbyist Writer
:shifty eyes:

I was distracted during lunch today, with a PLOT of how to tell a "meanwhile, Underground" to fit in with the current arc, and do a tie in with this. So much so that I started writing some of it out, just so I wouldn't lose it. And the faster I write, the worse my hand-writing gets, so... hmm... you get what you get!

Pika-la-Cynique Featured By Owner May 22, 2013  Professional General Artist
You ain't seen my Notebook o'Plotty Scribbles. I literally distressed a handwriting analyst. :D
(As to PLOT whammies, they tend to hit me in the shower...)
Yay can't wait!
Kyndsie Featured By Owner May 22, 2013  Hobbyist Writer
Niiiiiice. Is it wrong that now I'm picturing Jareth with a handwriting analyst? :D

Mine hit me whenever. Which is one reason, I suppose, that I have so many one-shots and different multi-chaptered stories: so I don't have to figure out how to make them fit. So it's okay if I don't remember them fully by the time I get to writing them down enough.


Just so long as you understand that, as of this moment, the story I'm coming up with fits with what you've posted of the current arc... but it may diverge. (so a splinter "reality" or something)
etile Featured By Owner Apr 14, 2013
heh she did ask.
Zeenada Featured By Owner Mar 7, 2013
Does anyone know if there's a spin off of this? Because although I'm glad Erik kept his promise it cut out a fair bit of sqee potential.
mayaegyptkezi Featured By Owner Feb 14, 2013
Now THAT's a rude awakening ;)
YukiRiku Featured By Owner Feb 4, 2013
YAYAY He kept his promise.

I feel so high right now.. *giggle*
KJPearl Featured By Owner Dec 23, 2012
Very pretty dress. Does Jareth not realize all this forcing her is just putting her off?
BugeishaKyasarin Featured By Owner Nov 6, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Love that sapphire blue gown!
Kyndsie Featured By Owner Oct 25, 2012  Hobbyist Writer
What I Noticed on Today's re-read:

*Erik's quirked pinkie. Almost as thought he's holding a cup of tea the "proper" way. :D
*Sarah being absolutely GORGEOUS until that awakening.
*I find it interesting that she looks at her own hands. It makes sense, as a way of trying to determine what she's been up to (trying to identify whatever stains or dirt or whatever); I find it especially compelling for some reason.
*And the fact that we "hear" Jareth without seeing him at all in this ep. That we don't know when / how she would have seen him, had the brick not dropped.
