***** ***** ***** ***** ***** ***** ***** ***** *****
Sarah admired the bright glint of the red tinsel against the white snow outside the window pane. She was decorating her bedroom with bits and pieces left over from doing up the rest of the house. There were pieces of left-over tinsel, broken off from the long strings and too short for the tree, strung along her window sill and woven into the frame of her bed head. She had tied sprigs of holly round the necks of all her favourite soft toys with bits of red ribbon all except for Lancelot, who was Tobys favourite toy when he came to her room to visit her, and she didnt want him to get prickled. She adorned shelves and picture frames with more sprigs, lovingly affixing some holly to the photo of her mother and Je

Said lichen gave her what may have been a wink. Of course it was hard to tell when all the eyes acted individually.
Maria and Allizander had been walking around for almost an hour according to her watch, and apparently making no progress.
Her bear feet were starting to give her more tan a little grief and she had been very put out that the first corridor had held a total lack of friendly blue worms.
"Patience my girl." Said Allizander. "The way quickest forward is sometimes-"
"The way back?" Asked Maria innocently.
Allizander stopped and gave her confused look. "Well I was going to say the longest way round. It's a bit daft sounding. Way forward being the way back. But trust me, this way will have us at the castle in six hours or less."
Maria grumbled incoherencies and kicked at a pebble on the ground in front of her. Six more hours of walking with Allizander didn't sound like much

The Labyrinth: Reversed Perspective
Jareth stared at his typewriter willing it, with almost an obsessed quality, to write something. He needed an idea, any idea for his next book and it was almost driving him to the point of madness. Or was he already mad? He couldnt tell anymore. He kicked at the little balled up wads of paper that seemed to cluster around him like chicks to the mother hen. They had varying ranges of stories on them, but they never seemed to be the right story. He leaned back in his rolling chair, sighing and looked over his bookcases. He had seven of them crammed full of fantasy stories only. Some held little figures from his stories or from his favorite books. One shelf held awards for his writing. One shelf of the bookcase closest to him held only two books and three manuscripts for movie adaptations. He sighed again and put a hand over his eyes, his leg crossing the other and he leaned back in this fassion, tapping his leg with his fre

Sarah felt her eyes darting between both the queens, and both sibling. So far none of them had spoken, and the nearest thing to it that she could hear would be Lenam's harsh breathing. She too was darting glances between the two women. The former Goblin Queen seemed to have no inclination to speak first, but the other grew impatient, hissing through her teeth.
So it is here I find my child, in a crowd of hedons. And so fitting too, after what she has done! Lenam paled, and Harrida seemed to change her whim, her voice sliding out in a husky silk.
She ceased to be your child when you left her with my grandmother. You cannot accuse her of something you know nothing about.

Sarah entered the huge white house, the floor had black and white tiles and the staircase to go upstairs stood in the center, opened at both sides, to access the second floor on the right side or the left one, she wondered where her room was.
She started going up the long staircase when suddenly she heard footsteps behind her, she turned around, surprised that there was someone else in the house, and found a maid staring at her from the foot of the staircase.
-My Lady... My name is Nessime and I will be your maid. Is there anything My Lady needs?- Sarah stared at the maid for a minute, just standing there.
-Well... I need to know where my bedroom is...-
-Oh, that is not a problem at all, My Lady, follow me.- The maid walked past her, lifting her skirts with her fingers and proceeded to walk in front of Sarah, who followed her slowly, until they reached the master bedroom, there, Sarah had to fight the urge to gasp.
The room was delicately adorned, there were golds and reds an
Musings of a Fallen KingFourteen years. Where had the time gone? For some, such a span of time would go fast, like a heartbeat, and it's gone. Many parents would agree that this span of time, and even longer then this, went by like a blink of the eyes. For others, it seemed like an eternity. One of those such individuals was a certain someone that was watching..forever watching.. What were those mismatched eyes watching? Mostly the progression of two people's lives as they grew up. What people one might ask..? A certain girl, though now a woman in most respects, girl named Sarah, though the focus had been lifted off her for quite some time..ever since he'd last stared in her face, and she'd blantantly denied him. Denied herself everything she could possibly want...and for what? Some bouncing two year old boy. Her thoughts of that two year old, and her determinedness to remove him from his clutches had basically been the force that had outdone him. Now, the girl would probably believe she had defeated him foreMusings of a Fallen King10 years ago in General Fiction More Like This

The Accidental Return
Sarah panted, leaning on a tree. She reveled in the shade, having walked for three hours in the glaring sunshine. She could feel the sunburn boiling under her skin. She stopped at what looked like a little farm. Little being an understatement. She felt like a giant! The barn looked like a dog house, the farm house was a doll house! She was afraid to even venture closer, she might step on a horse, which looked like little toys. The trees looked normal enough, The garden at the back of the house was sewn with normal sized vegetables, though the garden was little, as if just two of each vegetable had been planted. She sat down in the soft grass, resting her back against the tree. She sighed and looked up into the branches of the tree, the sun making the leaves look like little green stain glass windows.
Excuse me! A small voice called out to Sarah. She looked around and then down at her knee. A male goblin about ten inches high glared at h

Her heart, however, was beating as if it would like to fly up out of her mouth and dance over the floor. She squeezed her eyes shut tightly to try and get hold of herself. It had been nigh on fourteen years since she last had anything remotely like this happen, and though the warm and fuzzy feelings remained, as did her friends, actually having someone vanish in front of you who you loved was still a major form of magic that she wasnt sure her brain could process. She backed out of the room slowly for a moment, the wind wildly blowing through the window, before she realized that it would get all of T

Sure he looked in on her now and again when he was bored in his Kingdom, he let her live her life without distractions just like it should be. But this time there was only a small obstacle that stood in his way. The French balcony doors.Storm Night with a Goblin King5 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
He would never have risked being this close before, but this time he couldn't stay away.
He was sitting on the rail of the balcony just outside her window, she only had thin curtains but in her exhaustion she had forgotten to pull them closed so they hung loosely at the sides. He gazed up at the moon as his mind went back to earlier that day.
Jareth was sat idly on his throne, swinging his leg back and forth in sheer boredom. His last wish away was only yesterday and yet here he was bored out of his mind. Kicking the goblins wasn't entertaining today, even chucking them out of the high windows as the screeched in delight had lost its

Chapter 1: Meeting our Heroine
Camille sighed restlessly as she looked out of her window, the dim sunlight peeking over the horizon to outline her figure. Only miles from her castle laid a maze that sheltered a dark castle, a place that had taken a hold of the little princess since she could remember. When she was very young, her mother used to tell her stories of a beast-like creature that lived there, one that gobbled up little girls as for dinner.
According to those tales, he was a master of trickery and had led those naïve princesses to their deaths. The little princess of Prim had never known what this villain looked like at that time and had been very curious.
Only a Dream 23Sarah was staring incredulously at the chicken which the wizard held when the room was suddenly quite full of people. The scary blond man was still standing behind her, so she wasn't sure what he made of it. The wizard, though, threw the chicken into the air and made a dash for the door. No one bothered to stop him. Then Teatime started talking, and she forgot about the man in the pointy hat. In fact, she found herself feeling an instinctive desire to quickly move far, far away from him, yet knowing, also instinctively, that do so could spell her doom. So, like many other confused characters over the years, she froze. Eyes wide, she stared at the motley group ranged a few feet in front of her, with, she hoped, enough desperation in her face to make someone do something!Only a Dream 234 years ago in Romance More Like This

You Remind Me Of...Toby, as could be expected, had grown into an energetic and active toddler, constantly wobbling across his house, loudly garbling as he went. Both his parents, Robert and Karen, were entertained and laughed at their son's antics, though he also worried them both with how adventurous his antics could be. Toby loved to climb the staircase railings, again garbling his own language as he went. There was once when he was on the move, Karen had come out of the kitchen, drying her hands on a towel, and screamed bloody murder when she saw her son had reached the top of the stair case: just on the wrong side of it.You Remind Me Of...6 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
For all his antics though, Toby's favorite adventure was to visit his sister's room, especially once he had figured out how to use the door knob. That alone had proven a challenge for the toddler.

Sarah lay on her bed staring at the crystal ball Jareth had given her. It seemed to glow almost while sitting on her bookshelf next to a small red leather covered journal and it mesmerized her. It had been bugging her more and more over the past couple of days what the crystal reminded her of. Every time she looked at it, it seemed as though there was a box in the back of her mind that rattled, the information trying to get out. However the lock stayed firm and no matter how hard Sarah tried, she could not unlock it.
She decided to put it out of her mind for the moment and went to Heather's room. Heather was doing some last minute packing for Florida. Her parents would be stopping by to pick her up on their way to the airport in a few hours. "Need any help?" she offered.
"Yeah, could you hand me that stack of towels?" Heather said pointing vaguely behind her.

Sarah woke to the smell of spiced peaches. She smiled and pushed her nose farther into the pillow where the smell was emanating from. Suddenly, her eyes shot open. She hadn't been dreaming; she really was back in the Labyrinth. She sat up slowly, looking around her. She was still in Jareth's bedchamber and there he was, perched precariously on a settee under a blanket. It looked rather uncomfortable. His face seemed to mirror Sarah's assessment. Sarah wasn't sure what to do. She was sure the door was still locked. After her attempted escapes yesterday, she doubted he would be so absent minded as to leave it open.
Feeling the need for a shower, she wondered if the bathroom was open. She quietly got up and tiptoed to the door turning the knob. It was surprisingly unlocked. She opened the door to see a huge

Two months it was difficult to appreciate just how long a month was until you had to wait anxiously through two of them. The New Year had come and now the second month of it was nearly over. Spring break was only a couple of weeks away and Sarah had no idea how she was going to spend it. Originally she had planned to stay on campus and spend as much time with Jareth as possible, but now that it had been two months since they'd seen each other with only one letter of reassurance from him, she wasn't sure.
The letter had come in the middle of January tied with a ribbon around a single red rose. Sarah opened her desk drawer and took the letter out just then. It was worn and creased from how many times she'd unfolded it, read it, caressed the words 'I love you' at the bottom, and then re-folded it only to repeat the process about four more times a day. His flowing script helped to sooth her and give her courage until he could be there again, but th

Chapter 3: Questionable Impressions
Jareth wasn't quite sure why it was he was so concerned with Sarah's being ill. Everybody got colds every now and then why should this be different? Gee I don't know Maybe it's because you're a fool who is stupidly starting to care for a practical stranger that you are stuck with for the next month, a blunt and very sarcastic inner voice told him. And it was true; he'd only been in the mortal world for a mere three days and he'd already reawakened the feelings he'd started feeling for Sarah ten years ago. When she'd gone to bed the previous night without any comment or even looking at him, he'd become slightly worried. When she didn't wake up until almost noon, he'd become more worried. Now that she was trying to cough up a lung, he was terrified. What the hell was he supposed to do for her?

It was December the twenty first and Sarah sat in the bay window in the salon of her family's Victorian home. In the twelve days Jareth had been gone, there had been a monster of a blizzard, leaving some homes without electricity for several hours until emergency crews had righted the situation. Now though, it snowed lightly. Large bits of white fluff drifted lazily from the gray overcast sky to add to the already giant piles of snow. Sarah rolled her eyes; Mother Nature was taking the "white Christmas" thing just a bit too far.
She glanced at the clock; it was six o' seven and dinner would be served at six thirty. Jareth was late again. Maybe the goblins needed another firm talking to? Or perhaps he'd been found out by the fae who're watching him? Sarah slumped against the cool windowpane, her breath fogging the immediate vicinity. This was worse than Thanksgiving. The waiting seemed so much more intense and interminable. Of course that could

A sharp kick in the side was Sarah's wake up call. She jumped and grunted in pain, looking around to see who had done it. Not surprisingly, Todd stood before her, arms akimbo, frowning down at her. "Let's move," he growled as he started to walk away.
Sarah scrambled to her feet before he got too much farther. She'd learned the hard way that the collar worked very well whether it was she who got too far away from him, or he who walked faster. She caught up just as he turned the corner around the hedge.
The previous day they'd walked for hours and hours, but despite Sarah's best efforts, she couldn't find the markers from her previous trip. Instead they'd dealt with an entirely new kind of labyrinth, a darker one. Besides the death of the foliage all around them, it was evident that the labyrinth had changed in other ways. It had been about three hours into their journey when they came upon an open area in the maze with several choices for exits. Tod

"Oh, my Sarah," he murmured into her ear, hanging half over the park bench, half over her shoulder.
"Jareth!" she squeaked as she jumped a little with shock. "You scared me!"
She chuckled to herself. Reaching around, she grabbed a hold of his collar and pulled him around the bench. He plopped down beside her. "That is almost your theme, Jareth dear."
"Is that bad?" he asked, half-teasing.
Sarah sat sadly in a corner of the ballroom. Scattered, fuzzy memories of a golden cage were haunting her and she could not dance. She knew she became an owl during the day, but she remembered nothing from the day.
She sat quietly in a corner and stroked a mass of black fur, a wolf, who she thought she knew.

She couldn't be entirely certain, but Sarah felt nearly positive that her lack of concentration was linked closely to Jareth's presence so close to her that she could feel the heat radiating from his torso behind her back. She sucked in a shaky breath as his cool gloved fingers slid down her arms and covered her hands. Electricity raced through her body leaving tingling sensations that all seemed to concentrate where he'd last touched. Leaning back, she could feel his lean frame immediately behind her. His arms and body had effectively created a tiny cave just perfect for her to shelter in. A light teasing tickle could be felt along her right cheek as he leaned down to whisper in her ear. "You're not paying attention, Sarah."
Well no duh! How could anyone pay attention to such an inane thing as learning scales on the piano when they had an extremely handsome and inviting fae king standing so close behind them? "You keep distracting me," she accused.

Sarah, thinking she was still asleep, shook her head. The way back to where? Her words trailed as she stood up, walking toward the mirror. The classroom she taught in was no longer the reflection.

"Jackie! NO!" Jareth's voice called out, but it was too late. She'd touched the small blooming purple flower, just a gentle caress, but that was all that was needed. A seemingly dead vine suddenly shot out and wrapped around the wrist of the hand touching the flower. Jackie gave a startled yelp and attempted to pull back, only to find she couldn't as vines snaked up her legs, binding them together. "Jareth!" she cried out a desperate plea as the vines circled about her arms, making their way toward her neck.
Jareth rushed to her side, his Bowie knife already pulled out of his pack, and he began to hack at the vines that seemed intent on suffocating the woman before him. He managed to free her arms and was just getting started on the vines that had circled up her legs to her waist when another vine shot out and circled around the wrist of his free hand. Surprised, he hesitated a moment too long and it resulted in his other wrist being captured as well. He let out
