GND209 - The Slowest Game by Pika-la-Cynique GND209 - The Slowest Game by Pika-la-Cynique
Guh! A round of applause for *LouisaGallie for doing another gorgeous colour job on top of having a fairly crappy week her side of things.

So, Sarah's not taking quite the same route through the Stone Maze this time - welcome to the Chess Garden.
(I've had that idea of crossing over the two Jim Henson properties like so for a while now.)
(And seriously - that Hat is annoying.)

Sarah's first line, is of course, in response to a certain kinda garbled-but-discernable "ya mother is a fraggin' aardvark!!" insult from the Pavement Brownies, and like pretty much every university student I've met, she can quote Monty Python's 'Holy Grail'* to the word.
You really need to have seen 'Labyrinth' to be getting these pages, but then that really is a bit of a given for this fancomic.

Luna has a HP-verse magical camera, naturally, for field observation.

(* : ... but doesn't recognize the Dread Creature of the Cave of Caerbannog for what it is on first sight. In all fairness, it LOOKS like a harmless little bunneh, though, and that's half the point.)


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

I do recall her petting the bunny, and I like her using the French guard's line. The tiles were flipped and it was evil.

The weird part of this is I completely envision the labyrinth world crossing over with the dark crystal world because I think the Labyrinth world is in the space between dimensions and I think its portals can open to many different worlds including ours and other worlds .

I love the bird hat, so snarky!

I'm really glad to see she finally found out about the tiles.

Yes. A minor but very satisfying point in any non-too-serious fix-it/sequel fanfic.

In defense of the hat, Sarah's got those "royal jewels" on lock.

Too true. :D

I know, random question, but are all the Jim Henson Worlds connected in your version of the 'verse? Because Dark Crystal or the Muppets are all I'm saying.....
Pika-la-Cynique Featured By Owner Jun 29, 2014  Professional General Artist
Aaaand you've probably just cued Miss Piggy and Kermit waltzing by in the ballroom now.

Hey, lookit! Sarah put her hair back up in a ponytail... which makes me think that, like me, she usually carries additional hair bands in her pocket / bag. :D

I really really like how Luna's able to focus on her own studies, and doesn't mind Sarah griping at the Hat, as long as it doesn't interfere.

And I admit that I STILL have never seen The Dark Crystal, and have no intention of trying to watch it. I was post high school the first time I tried, and have NEVER been able to get more than a few minutes in. I can't even point out what it is that triggered my OMG-freaking-out response. Sorry, but I'm definitely a wuss when it comes to watching movies.
Pika-la-Cynique Featured By Owner Jun 24, 2013  Professional General Artist
Dark Crystal is, in fact, effing dark. My main problem with it is that the puppets of the main characters and the most humanoid, the Gelflings, cannot emote at all which seems a poor choice. And there are some creepy ass monsters and the pacing is all 80s-weird and slow.
Maybe pick up one of the picture book adaptations? It's still a gorgeous world to visit, and kin to Labyrinth.
Kyndsie Featured By Owner Jun 24, 2013  Hobbyist Writer
I'll see if I can find one of those books. Thanks for the thought!

She did do the coloring very nicely. ^^

What a perfectly impudent hat! Hooray for the Mystics, and Dark Crystal references! Hooray, too, for Sarah's comeback to the "aardvark" remark.

Playing chess with a Mystic! Oh man, that's a great little detail right there, especially since you had Kira here already as a potential love interest for Javert. Of course, I'd probably cringe of the Skeekses suddenly made an appearance.

is that the thing from the dark crystal
omg it is
thank you

A quote from Holy Grail AND an Ur'ru in the Labyrinth!? My night has been made. OwO
(Though, I found the hat to be quite funny really, in an "annoying to the point of being funny" kind of way XD)

I love the Mystic playing super-slow chess. And TurkeyBrain headgear.

**Of Course** Sarah can quote Python whenever the situation even vaguely presents the opportunity.
