GND208 - Credit where it's due by Pika-la-Cynique GND208 - Credit where it's due by Pika-la-Cynique
Sarah spends a lot of time in usual comics snarking and reacting defensively, though in her defense certain people tend to make every interaction a points-scoring verbal sparring match.

And Luna just... doesn't do bitchy.

And while it might have seen a logical-if-weirdly-meta thing to do, no, Sarah didn't show Luna her movie as preparation before setting out on this trip, for... various reasons.

(Also, that first "endless path", cue the 80s-synthesizer-music-running sequence, until she has a tizzy, and meets the Worm, is definitely a point of Sarah's Labyrinth run I feel gets misunderestimated - it took me a few viewings to really have it sink in that in not-movie-time, she spends HOURS (the original 13 are down to "nine hours and twenty-three minutes" when the scene cuts shortly afterwards to Jareth dandling Toby) on that first corridor, running straight ahead with only the hopeful self-admonished "I'm only taking it for granted that it goes on for ever" and the clock ticking on her and just this unending unchanging unturning slightly claustrophobic path, moving ever away from the gates where she started and obviously not getting anywhere closer to her goal - that's pretty awful.)

Thanks again for the colour, *LouisaGallie. And sorry again for the late. I'm not adjusted to the time difference between here and the Underground yet.

i love the way Luna interactswith all the characters in general :b so just has this quiet subtle optimistic way of pleasing (almost) everyone

I really like watching Luna interact with the characters in this comic:3
Luna would be an awesome magic friend to have.

Luna is so sweet, and she's right Sarah so don't feel bad.
shorewall Featured By Owner Mar 12, 2014
Wow, you're making me love Luna.  I am glad for this arc, if only to see more of her.  She has such a unique and interesting personality.  I especially like her straight art moment.  (But I also love her comedic expressions!  ;)) If I can ship Eric and Sarah, and I do, then I can get a feel for a little Luna/Sarah, if only on this page, as opposed to their regular friendship.  :)  

This work is amazing.  I love your art style.  As soon as I'm done, here, I need to check out your gallery.
Pika-la-Cynique Featured By Owner Mar 16, 2014  Professional General Artist
She's a good foil for Sarah here. :)
Glad you're enjoying!

But without Sarah's tip-off that there are openings to look out for and that they're tricky and magical in nature, Luna wouldn't have known to put on her glasses and start searching... no?

(Yes, Luna is a really nice person in addition to being really weird: one of JKR's best creations, I think.)

I was immediately struck by the fact that in the film Sarah's opening is in the 'wrong wall', leading back towards the outside world! Maybe they just flipped the shot for artistic reasons.
Irrissa-cicero Featured By Owner Aug 16, 2013  Hobbyist Writer
OMG! I didn't recognize Luna at all until just now! I just knew her name was Luna and I was pretty sure she was from Harry Potter. But I had to see her in her glasses for me to know it was her. 
Felhozet Featured By Owner Aug 14, 2013  Student General Artist
HOURS?!?! Wow.  I totally did not pay attention to the timing as well as I could have, so I am looking forward to re-watching it with that tidbit in mind!
Pika-la-Cynique Featured By Owner Aug 14, 2013  Professional General Artist
Having JUST re-watched it, it's not quite as cut-and-dried as that how much time was in the Endless Path and how much in the outer reaches of the Stone Maze. But certainly longer than it looked on film.
Felhozet Featured By Owner Aug 15, 2013  Student General Artist
Good to know.  I think my childhood self assumed that the screen time there was actual time elapsed.  Heh.  I could have learned a thing or two about taking things for granted.
Kyndsie Featured By Owner Jun 23, 2013  Hobbyist Writer
Oh, Sarah... revisionist memory, colored by current perceptions of Jareth, now? Your shirt was buttoned up too far for Jareth to do any actual peering DOWN it. At you... well, that gets into sticky squicky territory, and I'm not going to touch it. The ballroom scene is a different matter, but that didn't come until waaaaaaaaaaay further into the adventure. :D

LOVE Luna in those glasses that she got out of The Quibbler!

Wait... Sir Didymus ALSO has a riding crop??? My brain's trying to explode, and I really can't let it right now. I mean, it makes sense, as he's riding his own steed here. But in context of this fandom, riding crop = Jareth.
Pika-la-Cynique Featured By Owner Jun 24, 2013  Professional General Artist
That was just for the pertness of the phrase "breathing down my neck and peering down my shirt" rather than intended literally on Sarah's part, but you can't deny the general impression is there in that tunnel scene...

Sir D has a sort of baton of command, as per the film.
Kyndsie Featured By Owner Jun 24, 2013  Hobbyist Writer
Yeah... I guess so. Plus, the phrase really does work, and since he behaves that way NOW, it's understandable that she'd somewhat accuse him of it then.

Oh, that's right. Seriously, I have to watch it again soon! It's been at least a month. :D
Goddessa39 Featured By Owner Jun 17, 2013
Kind of awesome yeah. and the colors are pureeety!

She has to be the nicest Ravenclaw ever... more like and extremely intelligent Hufflepuff imo.
AnaxErik4ever Featured By Owner Mar 12, 2013  Student Writer
:) Go Team Owlclaw... I mean Ravenclaw indeed. Sorry. I go to an all-girls school, like Beaux Batons, and our mascot is the owl. Naturally, in the liberal arts environment, Harry Potter fans abound, and even though some of us identify with different houses (I'm a Ravenrin, combo Ravenclaw and Slytherin, myself.), we're all honorary "Owlclaws". :giggle: That worm was so cute. Time moves strangely in the movies, doesn't it?
P.S. Pika, did I mention how much I love how you do Luna? If not, now I have. :hug:
P.P.S What house, or combo of houses, are you?
kzally Featured By Owner Feb 19, 2013
See I always thought that Sarah found the worm and the opening about as fast as she did in the film (with the film being a little abbreviated) and the three hours and change after that was spent wandering between there and the Knights and Knaves puzzle.
Pika-la-Cynique Featured By Owner May 30, 2013  Professional General Artist
Having rewatched more recently... it could be that, too. :\

Well of COURSE it's easy when you're wearing X-Ray Glasses.
AnimaGirlDaria-chan Featured By Owner Dec 10, 2012
I just love how calmly Luna says "Of course it was harder for you". It's like one of those moments when someone takes your hand and gently says: "Everything is going to be fine" and they mean it.

The soft color scheme you do for this story arc is beautiful.
Pika-la-Cynique Featured By Owner Dec 12, 2012  Professional General Artist
Thank you - but colour credit goes to *LouisaGallie :)

Amazing job as usual. Love this comic so very much.

XD I love how quickly and seamlessly Luna pacified her here. That was adorable and she didn't even notice she'd done it.
Kbuzz101 Featured By Owner Dec 5, 2012  Hobbyist Artist
Luna is just so adorable
lifeofmine Featured By Owner Dec 5, 2012
Love Luna's innocent "Do we go this way? (not that I just figured this out without your help)" The labyrinth really is more Luna's type of thing--magic and riddles and strange creatures all over the place. Jareth may never get her to leave.
str4yk1tt3n Featured By Owner Dec 5, 2012
Are you ever not awesome? Nope. Never.

But I miss Jareth. I hope he makes an appearance soon, yes?
nightangelerik Featured By Owner Dec 4, 2012
Oh wow, I never really appreciate that! Poor Sarah, that's so awful. I can imagine the anguish she must have gone through as she walked and walked for hours, thinking she couldn't possible win...

That rat bastard Jareth.
EugeneEyeo Featured By Owner Dec 5, 2012
Indeed, I'd never noticed that in my previous viewings. One notch off of my "truefan" status, I suppose.
SelexiaOfTheHeart Featured By Owner Dec 4, 2012  Student General Artist
Luna's face in that 5th to last panel is just adorable! >w< When she takes off her glasses? She's just so cute!
Tiffs-is-my-name Featured By Owner Dec 4, 2012
LouisaGallie did a FABULOUS job with the color. This really is gorgeous. And oh, Luna, of course she doesn't do bitchy! I loved her expression as she explained to Sarah " were worried about your baby brother and didn't have any magical equipment."

I haven't really thought about it in a while - yeah it did take Sarah hours to find that out! I think when I watched it the first time I thought she was just being a bit dramatic when she threw a fit.

Anyway, yeah, woo hoo Ravenclaws!!
