I hope you can close your eyes and imagine Tim Curry and David Bowie having great snarky row. Aural sex, I tell you.

(Torch would be flashlight, to the non Brit-speakers... )

Heh. Drawing all that glitter was fun.
And yep, Darkness is still lurking in the building's cellars.


EDIT: Un-Matured in the hopes that a little cussing is acceptable for underage viewers...

This is a work of fanart, and solely intended for shits and giggles. No money is being made by this.

You know when you laugh so hard that you go silent and tears fill your eyes and you can't breathe? That's me right now. 
Alys18 Featured By Owner Apr 15, 2015
You would think it was Jareth who gave her that dress.

Hahaha! "Or else what. You'll dance at me?" The best.

I'm inclined to watch Legend for the first time now.
I found it irresistible and didn't want to indulge in my guilty pleasure of watching Tim Curry sabotage the screen, but this is the final straw. I'm watching it tonight.

guess who is watching legend and had to see this page when the dancing dress came on!

Oh man Jareth's face is awesome. Find your own pure maiden to seduce. Aw, the hilarity. For a cold blooded killer, Erik isn't that good of a liar.
Irrissa-cicero Featured By Owner Aug 13, 2013  Hobbyist Writer
I'm favouriting so many of these that I'm not gonna know what to do when I'm done!
Fingersofrain Featured By Owner May 22, 2013
Pah! Whoopsie Erik. That dress would match Jareth's armor beautifully, Sarah...again, just sayin'.
Neon-Raven Featured By Owner May 11, 2013  Student Writer
What I want to know is if this lovely outfit will show up again~?
AnaxErik4ever Featured By Owner Feb 23, 2013  Student Writer
:hug: Don't worry Erik, you can always appear in my mirror, regardless of Pika being anti Christinexyou. The memorable line for this page: "Glitter. I HATE Glitter!"
ShayMistwolf Featured By Owner Oct 29, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
I have to agree with the Phantom on that -.-; have you ever tried to get glitter out of cloth covered church pews? Nigh unto impossible it is.... ^-^
Ryvienna Featured By Owner Sep 12, 2012  Student General Artist
I really appreciate that you realize the actress from Legend, playing Princess Lilly, also played Christine in the most recent Phantom movie. You're awesome. ^_^
Pika-la-Cynique Featured By Owner Sep 12, 2012  Professional General Artist
No she didn't. :\
They look a bit alike, but Mia Sara =/= Emmy Rossum.

However I've just realized Princess Lilly married Brian Henson and that's pretty awesome too.
Ryvienna Featured By Owner Sep 13, 2012  Student General Artist
Oh..... my mistake. Sorry. >_<
Kyndsie Featured By Owner Sep 1, 2012  Hobbyist Writer
Doing another read-through. LOVE panel 3. Yes, he's back in Full Goblin King Battle Mode, and the art went straight-ish, etc, but more what's NOT being said. His profile and Sarah's face...

J: It's time for me to defend my Queen, and woe betide any who defy me. Stay here, love, out of the reach of any danger.
S: ??? Seriously? "Woe betide any?" You're kind of over-reacting... but not looking at me as you leave, or even trying to press the sudden advantage that that outfit always gives you. Huh. So I guess it must be serious. Or at least you think so.... But what am I supposed to do with all this slinkiness?

And in Jareth's defense about that pouffy white dress: he drew that dress from Sarah's own dreams! It had to fit in line with what she wanted at that point, or else she wouldn't have bought into the fantasy.

I'll go sit down now, and cool off on my italics for awhile.
Pika-la-Cynique Featured By Owner Sep 2, 2012  Professional General Artist
Panel 3 is more like genuine confusion on Sarah's part, as she had no reason to suspect anyone other than Jareth for pervy evil empress magical gowns appearing in her wardrobe, with a slight sprinkling of "you're actually walking away from me and half a dozen pervy openings created by this discussion?".

And the prosecution for the GK would retort that Sarah's "dream" dress is kinda tainted by association with a wily manipulative trap and the fact he can't see that but rather considers the constant dress-conjuring romantic is telling in a rather despair-inducing way, symptomatic of his unchangedness (and that he sees nothing about his attitude in need of changing), and seriously all that poofiness crowds the damn closet.
Kyndsie Featured By Owner Sep 2, 2012  Hobbyist Writer
Jareth should at least make Sarah's closet expand to hold the poofed menace whenever he sends it 'round again. So... did Sarah KEEP the pervy evil empress magical gown? Did Darkness withdraw it or Jareth block it? Hmmm. Love the opportunities for plotbunnies here!

Headcanon, I think Sarah was also a tad bit disappointed that he walked away in panel 3, as she relishes their sparring.

BTW - LOVE his reaction in panel 2. I can hear the blood rushing even while the wheels are trying to turn to figure it all out.
Pika-la-Cynique Featured By Owner Sep 5, 2012  Professional General Artist
The dress is planning a comeback.
Kyndsie Featured By Owner Oct 17, 2012  Hobbyist Writer
Maybe sooner rather than later? :D
Kyndsie Featured By Owner Sep 5, 2012  Hobbyist Writer
*happy dance*

Which means that Christine gets to help Sarah with a hairdo, too!
...unless Sarah gets the dress sent to Jadis, just for whatever uncomfortable feelings that might give stepdaddy D. OTOH, that could be drawing their attention back to her, which isn't what Sarah would want.

Hmmm... this is food for plot-bunnies, methinks. :D

"Go find your own maiden to seduce." I shouldn't be laughing at that, but I am.
And Erik, you just got BUSTED. :D
KAMwuzhere Featured By Owner Jul 10, 2012

Ok, now I have to find Legend...I forgot, is it a book or a movie?

"…Excuse me?"
"You're from Middlesex County."

Ah Tim Curry, the things you say. XD

Ha! I have the image of Jareth acting as a matador toward Darkness with his cape.
Layla256 Featured By Owner Jul 8, 2011  Student Writer
Awwww. I wanted to see Erik go balistic and help Jareth
caitycat66 Featured By Owner Jun 24, 2011
Aural sex indeed... :heart:
RndmChibiGirl Featured By Owner Mar 19, 2011  Hobbyist

Hahaha sorry I sound so creepy, but I have been looking for the movie that goes with that dress. One day, about a year or two ago, I happened to remember that dress and I asked around about it and nobody could tell me and YOU DID. AND IM SO HAPPY.

Now perhaps you might tell me what movie it is that has a Giant Bowling Ball House? hahaha.
Osanagokoro Featured By Owner Feb 17, 2011  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Actually, when I read your Jared lines, all I can hear is the English voice actor of Ayame from the Fruit's Basket anime.
hawthorne-cat Featured By Owner Feb 15, 2011  Professional General Artist
I do LOVE how Jareth can do his instantaneous garb changes!
Chika1345 Featured By Owner Dec 31, 2010
Third panel rocks with jareth's serious face and sudden flair of cape and kingliness! go kick some ass jareth she's your pure maiden not his!
DragonsSpirit60 Featured By Owner Dec 27, 2010
wait.... Chris has an attic?
Pika-la-Cynique Featured By Owner Dec 28, 2010  Professional General Artist
The Building has a communal attic.
DragonsSpirit60 Featured By Owner Dec 28, 2010
AH.... I think it's funny how the basement has a communal plot line and that the roof has been put to good use too... I could totally see someone hiding in the attic, like Legalos, especially since the darker characters chill in the attic.... ( Does Erik count as "dark" anymore?)
DaisyxTeru Featured By Owner Dec 6, 2010
Hahaha!! That's so smart! I love this! :heart:
mnleonard Featured By Owner Nov 30, 2010
I really love Sarah's sweater in this.

I mean, the rest of it's incredible, too!!!

But, I really like that sweater....
littleshireling Featured By Owner Sep 23, 2010
Gotta tell you, and I kid you not, honest to God, I picked 3 pieces of glitter off my screen, right over the panel where Erik says: "Glitter. I hate glitter." I sh*t you not.

... no idea where it came from...
NeverGonnaLeave Featured By Owner Aug 19, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Is it bad that whenever you emphasize Bowie's accent, all I can hear is Spike's voice in my head?
Pika-la-Cynique Featured By Owner Aug 19, 2010  Professional General Artist
Yes. Go listen to some Bowie singles.
NeverGonnaLeave Featured By Owner Aug 19, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Mmkay. Then maybe some fan art after. *runs off*
Lord-Azeran Featured By Owner Jul 31, 2010  Hobbyist General Artist

You just combined three of my favorite movies! XD And it would be fucking hilarious to see Jareth and Darkness going at it like this :P
mayguhn Featured By Owner Jun 9, 2010
i love erik's expression in the last panel.
