LABYRINTH - Envy by Pika-la-Cynique LABYRINTH - Envy by Pika-la-Cynique
Despite the monarchy's best efforts to stamp it out (...literally), resurgences of the Sock Heresy still regularly troubled the peace of the realm.


... Really, though, you'd think he'd be flattered.



EDIT Jan08 : OK, so I came second in the *The-Labyrinth-Club 's Seven Deadly Sins contest - but this image found its way into the most hilariously squiffy fanfic evah by the utterly and consistently pwnsome ~Subtilior - go read!! It will rock your socks!

pencil sketch, photoshop colour and time better spent on school work. >_<;;

I love this picture. For months I had it as the wallpaper for my laptop, until one day at work a colleague asked if he could borrow it for the powerpoint for a seminar that was starting in five minutes. You have never witnessed such as panicked and frenzied hunt for an appropriate picture! For context, I work in the Biology department of a university. I went for a chameleon in the end, but it didn't last long.

For our King's enormous –"

I want the one with a feather duster on it's head. Imagine the damage it could do!

I absolutely adore this. What's not to love about goblins pilfering socks?? I just KNOW that's where all of my socks wind up.

Love the color scheme. And I can just picture Jareth standing there with his arms crossed with that smoldering glare of his.

My question is: Does an apple a day keep the G.K. away?
