GND242 - Relatable (the blatant songfic page) by Pika-la-Cynique GND242 - Relatable (the blatant songfic page) by Pika-la-Cynique

As I was reliably counselled, Jareth would not be one to shy from the 80s synthetizers and a extra waltizified version, like this one.

(Caveat: I have a huge gaping hole in my savvy of American teenage classics and have yet to see ''Ferris Bueller's Day Off'', I gather it shows up there as well.)

(also personally I have a dire craving for a deep, raspy, anger-tinged Bowie cover of that song, damn.)

Anyhoo! YMMV on the degree of schmaltz, but here's Jareth's ''gift'' song to our second-chance-at-happiness crossover ships .... and also rather a lot of pointed awkward in Sarah's thought processes.






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

Please, Please, Please

With devart's new tagging system, yeah, since she mentioned me in the credits I was notified for those pages. Very cool.

Going to try to get onto a every 2 weeks update schedule, but things are currently not smooth.

As a villain turned Gray, then clear.. I know the slow pain of being held on a gossamer thin thread of hope. I have held my tongue when my eyes would speak volumes. I have spoken silently, knowing there was no-one to hear... but still I uttered "Why?" then "Why not??" and the ever present spectre of "When..."

As a player on and in the stage, I know the bindings of the Tale. The author can be so many things. Mother, Father,  the cruelest of friend, the dearest of enemy. The characters dance and weave.. their soul is the story, their freedom temporary at best.

The end is never "Happily ever after." There is only "This tale is done." The chase is the story, and for characters who chase each other... capture starts another tale. I say this as a fan. I say this as a reader. Be kind, Mistress. Let a flawed and hurting character be at peace and happy for a little while before hurting him again.

TLDR: Throw the guy a bone.. It's been YEARS, he's been GOOD. Sheesh!

Aw, Jareth's deliberate lack of expression in the bottom left panel...

Oh god, this is so beautiful. I can't help the feels which well up within me. I actually prefer listening to it with the cover by Dream Academy - seems to fit the mood better (to me). I think this has to be my favorite piece to date.

The two panels with Jareth and Sarah really give me hope for something wonderful. <3

Finally got around to watching Repo (at least part of it). Needless to say the characters from that make a lot more sense to me now.
