GND148- Distraction no Jutsu by Pika-la-Cynique GND148- Distraction no Jutsu by Pika-la-Cynique
Smooth move, Sarah, but clever =/= wise....

In other words: To be continued. O HO HO HO.

(This was an interesting exercise in a vaguely-plotted storyline expanding and changing and suddenly not hitting one in five of the originally planned lines of dialogue... Although the slight parallels to a similar [but much darker and serious] discussion of villainous and heroic roles in recent Roommates I don't think was deliberate. )


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

Sarah & Jareth (c) Lucas, Froud, Henson; Connelly and Bowie
Gip is mine...

Based on the original Roommates comic by *AsheRhyder

I've read this comic like, 5 times and I've only just noticed that Jareth has Gip dangling from his fist. This is pure awesomesauce.

Just kiss her already, you fool! She's two steps from your bed, and it's not that Sarah doesn't talk a big game, but we all KNOW she wants it!

I love The last Jareth line!

I wonder what's in the box. Hmm....
Btw I like the fact that Sarah took her hair down. It's so obvious that she is doing this, because she knows prefere her hair down. :D
Kyndsie Featured By Owner May 26, 2013  Hobbyist Writer
Plus... in order to take her hair down, the act of reaching her arms up would have stretched that catsuit even tighter in certain areas.

And I've got an idea about what's actually in the box and why Sarah shouldn't open it... except that his understated reaction nixes it. *sigh* I'll keep randomly thinking about it.
SlothSongs Featured By Owner Mar 16, 2013
Strangely, while I love SO many things about this comic, the thing that sticks out the most to me is the fact that Sarah is OCD enough to be able to pinpoint an eyeshadow that she lost--if she's a freshman right now--almost a year ago. Maybe women just pay closer attention to such things. Or maybe she's trying to save face.

Also, it's very hard for me to find cartoons sexy, but Sarah is certainly doing it right now, that sassy b*tch. /pets her

Ooooh! Jareth's got skeletons in his closet, or rather under his bed. They wouldn't fit in his closet! :XD: I wonder if there's any room for Pitch underneath his bed, or if, besides that box, it's just stuffed with his off-season stuff.
AmbreeChristineSkye Featured By Owner Jul 19, 2012
Did she take her hair down because its more comfortable or because she knows Jareth likes it when its down and hoped it would distract him? =D
Pika-la-Cynique Featured By Owner Jul 20, 2012  Professional General Artist
The latter - that and she had weaponizable spiky hair ornaments as back-up.
AmbreeChristineSkye Featured By Owner Jul 21, 2012
Oriental hair ornaments are useful like that. =D

Well, this really make me wonder what's in the box... And hey, about all the "good character" and stuff? I hate maniqueism (sp) so hell with it!
11th-Memory Featured By Owner Aug 24, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
I like panel 11 best. Why did she let down her hair? (It's too similar to their date for me.)
Pika-la-Cynique Featured By Owner Aug 25, 2011  Professional General Artist
Exactly. Jareth told her he likes it better that way, so she is hoping to gain a slight edge by distracting him - also, it allows her to grab the two very sharp needles she had in her bun for close quarters self-defense.

Hnnngggg his black clothes, I do enjoy his black clothes...

I agree; the subtlety of his expression there is really gorgeous.

I like how he says "yess" in panel five.

Jareth's face/expression when Sara does her little hair flick thing is awesome XD
IsabelM Featured By Owner Jul 26, 2011
That said, Jareth looks awesome... His expressions are priceless, specially in his second and third panels... when he follows her hair flow... Wow.

I must repeat how impressed I am with your style. Your characters are elegant. Of couse, Jareth more than Sarah... you can see his pose with his loose blouses... But when she gets all cocky and gets on the suitcase, she moves like a ballerina. Your pictures move with elegance. Quite a feat, considering they are, you know, not moving at all.

Now I hope someone will buy your designs and give us a second movie... animated. The original actors can't make the movie, but they can supply the voices... Oooooh, your drawings already move, they would look amazing in animation.
IsabelM Featured By Owner Jul 26, 2011
I just hate it when the bad guy says "Heeeeh, you did something wrooooong, you're just as evil as meeee..." Yeah, because recovering stolen stuff is worse than actually stealing it in the first place. I just hate it when villains try to convince the good guys that they're "not so good" because they are not idiotic. So, good for Sarah's answer. I'm glad you didn't get into that terrain... I just hate the double standard: if the good ones are perfectly good, they're stupid. If they act logically, they're, according to the villain, "just like me". Huh?
Pika-la-Cynique Featured By Owner Jul 27, 2011  Professional General Artist
Very good point...
EmbodimentOfSin20 Featured By Owner Jul 26, 2011
I adore Jareth's expression as Sarah flips out her hair. Another awesome page.

I'm done! *proud face* the ENTIRE thing in one night! And I'm eager to see what happens next... maybe another kiss???
Jess-likes-photos Featured By Owner Jul 25, 2011
All I can think about when Sarah takes her hair down is how in the date arc Jareth said he preferred it that way.
Xandi5anders Featured By Owner Jul 25, 2011
:lmao: She should've been suspicious of those spy clothes from the beginning.

Smooth move with the whole "casually letting my hair down" Sarah.

ohhh wats in the box??? i want to know!
TamaterGirl Featured By Owner Jul 24, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
I do agree with Jareth on the fact of if it were him snooping through her room and were caught, she would give him quite the ass-chewing. But in her case, to her 'heroine', she shouldn't have dropped to his level because if we can remember back in #67, he made copies of her pictures(or so he said). Therefor, wheither she gets the originals, if those truely are the originals.., she just squeezed into a tight catsuit and snooped his room for nothing. I will say I am with ~hikaphoenix on this one, Sarah just wanted to be caught :meow: What self-respecting fangirl wouldn't want his Royal Tightness oogling her in a skin tight catsuit? This fangirl wouldn't mind one damn bit :>
(just realizes how long and semi-indepth that post was o.O... major fangirl mini-fail) Umm.. yeah. Soooo I'll be over there <<<<< waiting on next weeks page... :meow:
