GND202- Diva-ine Intervention by Pika-la-Cynique GND202- Diva-ine Intervention by Pika-la-Cynique

Really, you're getting ever so worked up and botherated about such a wee thing. Leaving the Fail-field to take a trek through Jareth's dominion? Guiding Luna through the Labyrinth? Piece of cakeStroll in the park...

(... Are there any classic operas that manage to pull off a Screw Destiny motion successfully...?)

(Nope, no Clucktoberfest Speshul I'm afraid - I'm all too busy and got caught out by schedule slip and since I will be out of ambit next week I preferred advancing plot matters.)


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

Christine [Phantom of the Opera] (c) Leroux and Webber
Sarah, Jareth, goblins [Labyrinth] (c) Lucas, Froud, Henson; Connelly&Bowie
Luna Lovegood, DA, Death Eaters, Nargles [Harry Potter] (c) JKRowling and WB
Skeep (c) ~Lixxle

Based on the original Roommates comic by *AsheRhyder

I see the 4th Wall in this comic as a few charred, knee-high lumps of masonry protruding from the ground like broken teeth... :)

She called their bluff.
Great going, Christine.

Just a little tactless of Christine to pull a "some people are trying to study here" when it was she who was responsible for summoning Jareth onto the scene in the first place, with entirely predictable consequences, quarrel- and volume-wise...!

Does Luna actually need to touch the Snorkacks in person (i.e. visit the Labyrinth) for her thesis? Couldn't Sarah fob her off with a remote-controlled observation through the mirror...? I suppose not, once she knows the alternative's on offer.

Jareth appears very surprised at the idea that anyone might want to visit the Labyrinth.

*In suitable voice-over tones*
Today, on the re-read...

Please notice a goblin's failed attempt to touch, grab, chew, or otherwise chew some belong of Luna Lovegood's. Please further notice that while the two goblins who were not thrilled to see the Goblin King (in all of his glittery, tight-pantsed glory) appear have disappeared by the end of the comic, Skeep is still there. Skeep is, unequivocally a fan of the King, and is also quite impressed with Christine's hair. Skeep is, however, sufficiently scared of spelling-out-the-path-of-Destiny!Christine that the goblin shifts position to HIDE behind the sofa.

And, really, all Christine wants to do is to get back to studying for whatever major paper / exam it is that she's got coming up. Because otherwise, how has she not twigged to the shift in Jareth-Sarah dynamic? :D

Seriously, though... what is that of Luna's that that one goblin is trying to grab?
Pika-la-Cynique Featured By Owner Jun 17, 2013  Professional General Artist
I'm not sure the shift is that obvious to an outside viewer here? Seems like the fairly usual Irate Sarah/Smug Jareth-ness, and Christine can tell a plothook that won't be fobbed off...

Her wand. Although it might be attracted by the smell of the large piece of fruitcake also in that pocket.
Kyndsie Featured By Owner Jun 17, 2013  Hobbyist Writer
Ah... so Christine isn't as firmly attached to wearing her shipping goggles as I am. Makes sense. She's (quite in-characterly) more aware and willing to be part of the "contrived plot progession". That works.

Ahhhh! Both make very good sense. Thanks!

Luna has always been my favorite Cloud Cuckoolander, and I just love her in that last panel. It's so perfectly . . . Luna.

nice also lol destiny song
ErikasGunsNRoses Featured By Owner Mar 12, 2013  Student General Artist
I wonder if anyone's brought this up, but.....
I thought it funny when Christine says "Nowhere Fast".
A song from a cheesy 80's B movie entitled "Streets of Fire" has a song with the title "Nowhere Fast" in the beginning of it. It's a really great movie, and has an excellent soundtrack, if anyone gets the chance to watch it.

LOL, and the goblin on the couch is like "PLEASE LADY DON' EAT ME!" Love it!
GingerDarkness Featured By Owner Oct 12, 2012  Hobbyist Artist
I'm with the little goblin hiding behind the couch...

Dang, Christine, you scary!
turtletotem Featured By Owner Oct 12, 2012
Not only does this plot twist bode well (or poorly, which is the same thing), but can I just say how much I love that last panel, artistically? Sarah's expression, the curls in Christine's hair, the goblin peeking over the couch, the way Luna's looking up... They're just all more-than-usually beautiful.
Pika-la-Cynique Featured By Owner Oct 17, 2012  Professional General Artist
Aww, thanks. :meow:

I'm really curious to know what Jareth does with his copious free time. Everyone else has school or jobs, and Jareth doesn't seem to pop back Underground except only on the occasions he needs to stop a chikkin rebellion. What's he do with his life besides break into other people's kitchens to make himself tea?
Cimorine90 Featured By Owner Oct 9, 2012
oh man, I can't WAIT for the next one! :squee: SOOO FUUUUUNN!!!!!!
RaRaRogers Featured By Owner Oct 9, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
This question came to me in the shower, and has probably already been answered, but how does Jareth pay for his apartment? Eric has a job, Christine and Sarah are going to school. Does he barter with dreams? Hawk glitter at the local craft store? Re-sell his outfits at that one clothing exchange store that has suddenly become very popular with Goths and Glams?
nimravid Featured By Owner Oct 11, 2012
Conjure up money with a christal? ;)
RaRaRogers Featured By Owner Oct 12, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
LOL. I think just making money out of thin air would be against some code. As a king, I'm sure he's wealthy, but I always figured he was wealthy by the way of goblins, with all the lost socks and "leftovers in the back of the fridge you were going to eat but could never find" he could ever desire. Perhaps the answer lies there. Perhaps he has accesses to all the worlds holey pockets and the lost money revenue therewith.
nimravid Featured By Owner Oct 14, 2012
I'm not sure whether Jareth lives by any code :p He could also pay with goblin gold (the kind that disappears after a day...), or maybe just confiscate the room by right of royalty or something :p

alpnorman Featured By Owner Oct 8, 2012
Now, Christine, in all fairness, Jareth's response _was_ rather sedate and diplomatic. By Jareth-standards, anyway.

Pika-la-Cynique Featured By Owner Oct 8, 2012  Professional General Artist
Smirking in a slightly gloaty fashion was not, however. But you're right - lets just say Chistine is pre-empting his bargaining a little too hard and personal for the favour.

I keep commenting in all caps, yes, but it's just so damn AWESOME. The world will finally see what Crumple-Horned Snorkacks look like, Luna as tourist in the Labyrinth, much upcoming Sarah/Jareth interaction if not banter... YAAAAY! *Kermit flail*

I wanna be a StarKid Actress!
