GND240 - Passe d'armes by Pika-la-Cynique GND240 - Passe d'armes by Pika-la-Cynique
OK, wee reminder [because it has been MONTHS between pages]: they are talking about Jareth's choice of junior attendees at the ball. One is to understand that at this point, Tiny Tim and the Little Match Girl have been sent home/away.

Ok, I usually keep the pretentious elegant French phrases for Fantôme cast-centric pages, but I like the imagery too much. Is a swanky way to say ''sparring'', really, and that is what is going on here. They both landed, and parried, a few blows there...

So GND-Jareth has never really tried to stick to those traditional Fair Folk rules and entrapments, and in continuity has been thanked by Sarah a few times previously that never became a magical big deal. So his line here is a fairly half-assed attempt at pulling that one to see if it takes; also, I recently wolfed down Seanan McGuire's October Daye novels - rec'd by one lovely person here, gifted me by 2 others, oodles of gratitude all around - and the theme was fresh in mind.
Anyway, Sarah no-sells that one attempt at being a little creepifying. And then.... you know what, that might just be progress right there.

IF Jareth behaves around the rest of the guests. Oh wait....


 Update!! Finally! I'm done with my deadline, and Louisa scraped up the time and wheeee vaycay.
Have yourself a whole comic of JS-ness.






This is a work of fanart, and only intended for shits and giggles and vicarious fangirl thrills. Not my characters, no profit being made.

The bottom four panels (especially the top center in that row) has immediately drawn me back in to every Labyrinth and Jareth. That is an absolutely astonishing expression you have conveyed! I keep coming back to look at it again and again. Being able to Bowie and Jareth at once and separately is messing with my head. The level of of amazement and appreciation he has is just a wow factor!

The panel with Sarah turning her head to look at Jareth is so lovely. Sigh. Also I love how you draw her dress!

I am so in love with this page I can't even.

I mean, the art for one thing. It goes back and forth between the usual GND style and a more comic-book style and I. Love. It.

And then the coloring, IYEEEE! Gonna have to go drop a million kudos on Louisa.

And then the "sparring" and the body language and the dialogue and dropping fae references left and right and JARETH'S FACE IN EVERY PANEL and I'm just head over heels.

Thanks. Much appreciated comment.

Possibly things look more comic-y because I need for GND Sarah to be looking a little less childish, but without perma-Straight Art.
