Devious Comments

This is an old one, as far as poll-age goes, but bear with me, I just recently discovered these.

So! #1 - Monster Hunter interviews. Almost entirely because of HARRY MOTHERF---IN' DRESDEN OH GOD I LOVE HIM. It is without a doubt the best urban fantasy series out there right now, in my opinion, and I loved seeing him interact with the cast, if briefly. But if it was just that, then it would only be second place or so. I also really enjoyed the other crossovers, specially with Spike being sassy and apparently not-yet-soulful-yet-still-chipped-while-knowing-of-Potentials.
And, of course, the one with the Winchesters and Crowley and Az, which is without a doubt my favorite comic in GND so far. I don't know WHY I love it so much, but it's just hilarious and works on so many levels.

As far as where the rest stack up:
#2 - TIED: Evil League of Evil/Return to Labyrinth due to LUNA!!!! I just...I just love Dr. Horrible, and I loved seeing him and Penny (as a ghost 'cause of course she'd be the only one not getting to be alive in this world (sniff)). Like I said in some other comment, I keep hoping Erik will discover his blog and then they'll jam together! As for Labyrinth, I just find it really clever and interesting writing, utterly beautiful to look at at times, and I just plain love Luna being Luna, which is a huge perk.
#3 - Erik/Mag/Christine/Raoul. I love seeing Erik happy. And it makes my inner Latino giggle at Christine's nigh-jealousy for Mag, even though I know she loves and is happy with Raoul. The soap opera! In our next installment, Erik is PREGNANT. And RAOUL IS THE FATHER. 'Cause, yeah, that's how that works.
#4 - The Time Skip. I will never stop wondering what happened in those 4 pages we missed. It keeps me up at night. ...I bet it involved Coulson scaring Jareth somehow.
#5 - COULSON. Nice guy. See above.
#6 - Cut-short dream. I really surprised myself by having this so far down the list. It's not that I didn't like it, just liked the above more. You really have this strange way to make people seem sexy on-paper. It's wonderful.
#7 - Depressed & Honest Jareth. I love Jareth, and it's totally in-character for him to be mopey. It just happens a little too often in the comics for my tastes. I prefer when he has the slight-upper-hand in a situation and is all aristocratic and pompous (like when he caught Sarah in his room). Now if the poll had said Depressed, Honest & Slightly-but-unnervingly Homicidal Jareth, this would be much higher up in the list. Probably 5, maybe 4.
#8 - Other: ...am I really the only one that think Dr. Frank N. Furter's minicomics deserve a spot here?
#9 - Labyrinth cause of Fail-lessness and drama. Wasn't sure exactly what to make of this one, since I didn't know what Fail-lessness meant specifically, but I said before I love the Labyrinth arc so far for the clever writing, which has almost nearly no drama at all. In fact, it's more of a subversion of drama ("WE HAVE TO FIND MY MANLY JEWELR-" "Accio." "...oh. ...no bonding adventure?") in my opinion, and that's what makes it so good. So this one's the last spot.

Sorry for the essay! Love the work so far.

Thanks for all that. Feedback being my pay-off and all.

I'd just point out regarding point #1 that Spike's talk of being chipped was not bound by any Fae compulsion to be truthin', and methinks a "post-canon" Spike would be savvy enough to keep spreading that story - reassuring to prospective allies, ace in the hole for situations turning bad.
OR is just a case of "popular perception of the character" which is a bit separate from actual continuity issues.

I'll go with the first explanation--I like it and Spike IS the sort of character that would be unexpectedly strategic like that, despite his dimwitted exterior-and-mostly-interior.
It's a good plan. Smart plan, carefully laid out. Good thing he left before he got bored.

My first one is the Evil League of Evil attacking Campus. If I could choose a second one it would be The Return to the Labyrinth Pages because LUNA! And it's very very very pretty and colorful!

So many that I wanted to pick...all involving Jareth and Sarah. I went for the make out session because Sarah just needs to get a clue and give in. Jareth would do ANYTHING for her if she'd just give him a full chance.

Coulson. Because it hurts so good. The first time I saw the page I hadn't really gotten over what happened so I rather sobbed...a little. It was adorable and you made him being Sarah's relative so very believable. It was wonderful.

I really loved the Timeskip since it was completely unexpected and I laughed out loud (fangirled on the inside). But as a full arc, I really am enjoying this Return to the Labyrinth arc. I think Luna fits in perfectly with the Labyrinth and I cannot wait for some Sarah/Jareth action....as always, totally wicked Pika! :squee:

Dean hitting on Christine.... that's the Dean I miss. The writers have basically destroyed any last remaining shred of that light, cheeky side of Dean by now, and yet somehow they continue to find new ways to torment him... D:

ALSO JARETH "Is that SAM WINCHESTER?! Girls he likes DIE!!" XDDDDD

I'm really upset I can only vote for one- I voted for the Timeskip (I still read that one and snerk) but I equally adored Monster Hunters (Hugh Jackman, anyone?) and the interrupted catsuit dream. Really, this past year was filled with fantastic little (and big) plots!

I ADORE The return to Labyrinth scenes with Luna so much. I do hope though after this is over there's gunna be some more meg/cristine/eric action going on. They've gotten a bit to the background.

Not complaining though because Luna.

My favorite PAGE was Jareth being all creepy/sexy/dark and going to Erik for advice about whether or not to keep Sarah trapped. The art on that page was particularly fantastic and the conversation made me all goosepimply.

I chose other because I couldn't decide. They're all great! But I could narrow down the choices to:
-The Return to Labyrinth pages
-Depressed&honest Jareth, snuggly owls in the underwear drawer and concerned-in-spite-of-herself Sarah
-That tragically cut-short dream involving catsuits and riding crops...

I am a relative newcomer to GND; I did an archive binge sometime in the fall. I've enjoyed every moment, but I must admit my heart did somersaults of fannish glee when Christine and Sarah interviewed the Winchesters.

Ughhh....I was so torn. How could I possibly decide between all those wonderful options? I LOVED the Monster Hunters episodes...but I'm hopeless with longing for the possibility of there being something concrete when it comes to the Timeskip, and even still, any sort of angsty relationship development on the part of J&S is like a drop of rain in the desert that is my starved fangirl obsession. Alas, I chose Other.

*peruses options*

*ticks Other*

*means 'all of the above,' really*

I enjoy this comic. As a whole entity. It's fun, the art is fun, the way the art style shifts to show tone is awesome, the characters are themselves, I laugh, I cringe in the right places, I want to be Nanny Ogg when I grow up but I think I'm already a husband or two behind.

I do not ship Sarah/Jareth and I still enjoy the hell out of this comic. You just keep on doin' what you do because it rocks. The plot/crack/drama/romance/omg guest star balance is just right.

(I admit, I do love cameos, and I wonder what Lizzie's up to as her spot as Tertiary Girl-Friend seems to have been usurped by Luna, but Lizzie's got a kid to raise and ships to plunder, I know she's a busy lady.)

Oh, it's not you, it's me. *grins* I'm genuinely terrible at shipping. I can enjoy pretty much anything as long as the author and/or chemistry does a good enough job of making me believe it... but there's always a little part of me going 'You know, Elisa and Owen would make a good couple' or 'I can totally see Sarah/Erik' or similar sentiments. I mean, I just read a Steve/Tony fanfic by an old friend of mine and kept seeing Steve/Jarvis instead.
