GirlsNextDoor16 - Corsetry by Pika-la-Cynique GirlsNextDoor16 - Corsetry by Pika-la-Cynique
(So, er, just out of curiosity - how many boys are following this strip...?)

A little convoluted back story here: Jareth glanced at his usual Sarah TV crystal, did a doubletake, and decided Erik needed to be taken out of the way, on the off chance he looked into Christine's mirror. Jareth's favourite Erik-distracting manoeuver is sending him off on wild Raoul hunts.
Yes, Erik is an exceptionally intelligent murderous genius, yet he still reacts quite irrationally when given the slightest chance to bump off de Chagny. (and a yachting club held so many opportunities for 'accidents' involving ropes...)

Jareth's pulled that one on him eight times so far, and it still works.

Christine is spending the evening with Liz, btw.

And an oddly diurnal barn owl spent a very happy forty minutes outside the window, before Jareth couldn't resist being smirky and pervy and Jareth-y.
Well, we all knew he was a period clothes fetishist...


- This was, incidentally, one of the very first stories I came up with when I started playing with the idea of GirlsNextDoor.


ZOMG, I wanna know what HAPPENED NEXT!!1! DX

As to the question of how many boys are following the strip, add one more.

I'm quite enjoying your sense of humor as I go through these back strips. The art is well done and I look forward to seeing the rest of the work as I peruse your site and web page.

hmm my question is with Jareth being Fae and all, how did he get in the house without being invited? or did Christine give him an open invitation before she knew who (and what) Jareth was? [because Sarah sure as hell wouldn't let her words slip around him xD]
AniskyM Featured By Owner Jul 11, 2013
I think you're thinking of vampires?
Kunamichan Featured By Owner Jul 13, 2013  Student General Artist
Vampires are under that rule but most Fae/old mythic creaturs are as well
AniskyM Featured By Owner Jul 14, 2013
Huh. Strange, I've never heard that before, and I read a lot of fairy tales and mythology.

Oh God hilarious.. Man this is one of my favorite pages.. You drew the dress well and her body in the bottom panel, and Jareth's silhouette! :D
RomanceFreak Featured By Owner Jul 23, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
I can just hear the slap of Sarah's hand to Jareth's face when she finds out he's been watching this whole time... :D

Entertaining as always, and yet one more male finds his day cheered up by those who enjoy work for shirts and giggles. Sans shirts, it seems.
And now back to digging my way through your archive. Charge!

:D Going by your icon you have good taste in webcomics, too. Howdy!
krosanreaper Featured By Owner Jul 18, 2012
Why, thank you ;)
Lunarluminesce Featured By Owner May 10, 2012
This is probably the page that really got me into GND. That fun image showing Sarah's 'repressed inner princess' , Erik's cheated face in the last panel, and pervy Jareth striking a pose beside the window...Poor Sarah ^^; A happy 40 minutes, huh?
Ravenkeeper Featured By Owner Apr 7, 2012
My friend recommended this series to me just today and I'm pretty much putting off sleep until I get through all the strips. this is brilliant =D
(mainly cause I'm a huge Harry Dresden fan and she told me he would show up for a job inteview along with the Winchester brothers, but this comic is definetly carrying it's own on humor and reference jokes alone) =D
superb work ^^d

Well she WAS wearing a ren-faire dress at the start of Labyrinth...
Winchestergroupie Featured By Owner Feb 12, 2012
LOVE this, but then I'm a huge huge Goblin King Groupie, so Jareth just does it for me even when he's pervy and kind of especially when he's pervy. ::freely acknowledges her mental issues::
Siberianchan Featured By Owner Feb 1, 2012
I wonder... there is the big one epic missed moment of Awesome Storyline...
did Sarah manage to clean up the mess she made in Christine's room?
Will Christine notice?
How will Sarah explain? How much snickering and fun-poking will she have to endure?
... or will it all end in an epic little catfight?
AteMozzarella Featured By Owner Jan 10, 2012  Student General Artist
Well who would blame Jareth? Sarah looks gorgeous!
TheBasketKid Featured By Owner Jan 1, 2012
Jareth is such a perv! But we love him.
Elilux Featured By Owner Nov 21, 2011
THIS IS AWESOME. and you know what? you could do that Erik know Zuko! that would be REALLY REALLY AWESOME.

I'm re-reading the comics now and I just noticed something. That poster in Sarah's it from V for Vendetta? Just wondering. (and if it is; awesome film)
Pika-la-Cynique Featured By Owner Jul 11, 2011  Professional General Artist
Yep, it is.

Do ALL girls get like this? Seriously, I'd like to know the answer. What IS it with females an' pretendin' to be royalty?
I don't think it's safe to inquire about the OTHER outfit, though...
Pika-la-Cynique Featured By Owner Jun 13, 2011  Professional General Artist
Repressed Iner Princess Sydrome?
I'm pretty sure that is majorly behind the big fuss your average bride-to-be will make planning her wedding. And prom dresses. Blame Disney?
NeriSiren Featured By Owner Jun 23, 2011
I love randomly skipping and going "Lally lally lally!" whenever I wear a long flowey skirt =D
No seriously, I do. ^^;

So... my question every time I reread this is how did Sarah get the corset laced up?
Pika-la-Cynique Featured By Owner Apr 16, 2011  Professional General Artist
.... "certain powers"...? ^^;

Sorry. I chose potential for funny over exact realism in this case. Even if it is a button-up, I do realize/have been told that getting into that corset by herself was quite an unlikely feat.

Thanks for the info

Ugh! I hate you right now, Jareth!!!! :angered::fork: How dare you do that to the guy who represents my #1 fandom, even when his fanbase is just as old as, if not cooler than, yours!!!!!

How the heck did Sarah get into a corset by herself anyway? o_O
