GND203 - Token Gesture by Pika-la-Cynique GND203 - Token Gesture by Pika-la-Cynique

(I've spared you the whole conversation, but rest assured that Sarah's checklist from panel 01 is LONG. There's a very fine line between paranoia and common sense when readying to deal with the Fae.)

And for reasons that will be made slightly clearer within a few pages, this is a Lovegood&Williams expedition only. [For now.]


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

Sarah, Jareth [Labyrinth] (c) Lucas, Froud, Henson; Connelly&Bowie

Based on the original Roommates comic by *AsheRhyder

Jareth's face in the eighth panel when Sarah is putting on his pendant.... Dear god that expression is what I live for. Gimme more, gimme more!
CaseMayday Featured By Owner Nov 11, 2015  Hobbyist Artist
Pfffft I am thoroughly amused by his offer of the pendant.

I guess we know why Jareth favors those chest baring, slit-down-to-the-navel shirts now!  :eyes: revamp

[Kronk voice] Oh yeah. It's all comin' together.
little-ivy Featured By Owner Nov 24, 2014
hehehe, "Kronk Out"

 it'd be great to see Yezma and Kronk in here...

Or even just Kronk.... Oh he could have a baking day with Christine! And make Spinach Puffs!
oh typical.

Huh, I wonder what he needs the pendent for. That's a good look for Sarah, though!

Can't wait.

Mmm. Reminds me of a fanfic I just read~
Involved Jareth loaning Sarah his pendant (with part of his consciousness in it) and an exploration into her own magic. Fun times. Much fluff. Very ship.

"I had planned to ascertain that for myself before I left" - the mind boggles :)
Does he create a personal Labyrinth-field around himself that can simulate any magical side-effects... and just how was he planning to test Luna? :D

"It's warm" -- there is something disturbingly intimate about that image :p

Given that Sarah isn't aware that she has any magic, it's probably advisable for her to ignore this red herring altogether and continue wearing the pendant safely on top of her clothing! ...If Jareth gives Sarah his pendant, does that mean that it won't be safe for him to enter the Labyrinth until she has returned it to him? It may depend exactly how legalistic his subjects are apt to be (and how much personal power/recognition he has, as opposed to his royal position...) That would certainly make any need to intervention or a  'rescue' attempt... potentially interesting.

I love how he manages to achieve sheer elegance with one hand in the third panel!

Pika-la-Cynique Featured By Owner Nov 8, 2013  Professional General Artist
That magic aspect was left rather vague, yeah. I'm guessing Jareth just wanted to poke at Luna's arsenal a bit.

Disturbing - or shippy - intimacy of the wam pendant quite deliberate. ;)

Nice one Jareth...a pervy one, but jet a good one. :D
(Sorry Sarah)
Kyndsie Featured By Owner Jun 15, 2013  Hobbyist Writer
Given how presumably thorough Sarah's checklist was, Jareth has apparently answered all of the pre-written questions that Sarah had.

Too bad she didn't listen carefully to his answers in the rest of the conversation.

How is it even POSSIBLE for anybody to make an ordinarily boring and completely mundane dining room chair & table look so fabulous??? (and WHERE is this conversation happening? I know that it isn't plot-relevant, it's just my curiosity. I'd actually say that it's in the guys' apartment, as Christine has been TRYING to study for a few eps now.)

So, if it's happening in Jareth's apartment, that heightens the potentially problematic nature of the gift / loan / whatever.
zephrbabe Featured By Owner Apr 22, 2013
Now I totally want to see Sarah exercising/exploring her magic. XD

I would lol so hard if she pulled the ol' owl-at-the-window on Jareth.
Zeenada Featured By Owner Jun 21, 2013
Oh my god YES! That would be awesome!

:roll: Jareth, you magical perv. At the same time though, have to give Sarah props for being thorough.

I love Jareth's face when Sarah's back is to us.
TamaterGirl Featured By Owner Nov 1, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
I have a feeling that should she choose to take his proposal of crowd and kingdom, this all happening in a Utopian realm of course, that Queen Sarah would have quite a few clauses and laws of her own ;) Complete with lawyers present and bewitching anti-Fae tomfoolery spells courtesy of Luna and Harry D.

(I can't believe it... 4 weeks behind on GND and Roommates... I am so ashamed...)
AlaricKai Featured By Owner Oct 28, 2012
Way to ruin the serious drama, Jareth. Not that I'm complaining. Sarah's reaction is hilarious.
Gabonri Featured By Owner Oct 27, 2012
echoing what many commenters before me have said, i love the everyday conversation feel between them here, especially jareths pose in panel 8. and as a math major, Q.E.D. made my night.

pervy jareth's a pervy :iconpervyplz:
hawthorne-cat Featured By Owner Oct 24, 2012  Professional General Artist
just wonder how many times Jareth has to hand Sarah the throne before she sits!!!
love the explanation for Jareth's bare chest open shirt.... when he wears gloves... and judges crystals as his magical manifestation.... sure sure Jareth we see thru you.... as you wish to see thru Sarah's top!

Titianna Featured By Owner Oct 23, 2012
I hope she covered the 'how to get back to the normal realms topside' clause.

And you know, with her being the potential next Queen of the Underground if she'd just accept (yeah right) his proposal then she'd have a hell of a lot more protection while in the Labyrinth. But hey, if she gave in like that we wouldnt have such delicious angst that goes along the lines of the last panel. XD

I can't wait to see this!

Have a bad feeling about this... Anyone else hearing shades of "The Goblin Market"?
Pika-la-Cynique Featured By Owner Oct 24, 2012  Professional General Artist
A few other people in the comments have their figurative nape-hairs rising also.
the-burning-brand Featured By Owner Nov 3, 2012
I'll bet. Can't wait to see what happens.

I don't know if I have ever told you...but I LOVE how you portray Jareth... he is deliciously impish and even debonair ... ;)

When does this comic update? Is it a regular or more random thing? I'm adding you to my watchlist! This comic is super awesome!! :love:

Wednesdays, barring the unexpected.

Leilanidaniels Featured By Owner Oct 23, 2012
Of course.....You have to love him for that. You get to see Jareth's ultra-happy face, and Sarah in skimpy outfits. It is a win-win situation~
ScionofApolo Featured By Owner Oct 23, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Common sense and paranoia have a difference in Faerie??? Gods above, in most of the stories I've read each Lord and Lady has their own sets of rules that must be followed, and while some are universal "Eat not drink not" others are not. You've read the Dresden Files, think of the nicities that the Earlking would give in comparison to Mab or Titiania...
