A Labyrinth Xmas Story
***** ***** ***** ***** ***** ***** ***** ***** *****
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

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

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

"Sarah," Sarah's roommate Vivienne whispered. No response. "Sarah!"
"Five more minutes, Viv. It's all nice and warm under here "
"That's what I wanted to talk to you about."
"Ugh what time is it?" Sarah asked not opening her eyes.
"In the morning? Jesus Christ, Viv! Too early!"
"Sarah! Did you know there's a guy in your bed?"
At these words, Sarah's eyes popped open in alarm. "Say what?"
Vivienne pointed behind her and Sarah turned her head to see a mop of blond hair sticking above the blanket. Now that she was awake, she could feel an arm draped over her waist and she could now comprehend why it was so warm and cozy, because she had Goblin King in her bed. The question was: when the hell had that happened?! "He wasn't there last

Desideria Rayne sat paying little attention to the other council members. The other twelve members of the council were bickering amongst themselves about Lord Abbadon's request. It had already been decided that his request to have his land back a year early would be denied, but Desideria knew that the council members argued for the sake of arguing. When they were in the council chamber it was all teeth and claws but the moment their official robes were hung up, the bared teeth became smiles and the claws became friendly handshakes. For the most part anyway There were a few council members with agendas, but this was politics. What politician doesn't have an agenda?

Sarah Williams tried to go on with life as normally as possible. When she returned from the Underground she hoped everything would be the same as it was before she was swept away into the world of her fantasies. However, she knew that something had changed, but what?
The house was the same, as was her bedroom. Just how she left it. Stuffed toys lining the walls, photo albums full of playbills, magazine clippings, and pictures of elaborate costumes, books about far off places and magical monsters, and a beautiful figurine in a sliver ballgown. She lifted the figure to get a closer look. It really was beautiful. A sweet porcelain face, brown locks decorated with ribbons, and elaborate designs stitched into the fabric of the tiny beauty's gown.
Sarah's mind was full of graceful figures with their faces hidden behind grotesque mask depictions of goblins, all dancing in tune with a soft sweet song. The lyrics floated in her mind as if they had been written just for her:

Sarah tried to control the tears streaming down her face. She would not give Jareth the satisfaction of seeing her cry. The bastard had effectively trapped her in the Underground for the rest of her life. She didn't know how long it took for a changeling to completely change, but she was quite sure however long it was, Jareth wasn't going to let her go back. An idea struck her and she sat up straight.
What if Jareth was lying? What if he just wanted her to stay here? Sarah rose and walked to the balcony again. A cool breeze played softly against her skin. Looking over the edge, she saw that she was more than four stories up. There was no way she'd be able to jump. Looking back at the entry way to the balcony, Sarah noticed there were ledges, about a foot wide, running along the outside of the castle. If she could walk along it

Sarah slowly turned onto her stomach and trembling, rose to her hands and knees. She ached everywhere, but there was a sharp stabbing pain in her side that she was pretty sure was a broken rib or two. Carefully, she settled herself down so she was sitting upright, leaning against the wall behind her. She closed her eyes and tried to take deep calming breaths, but it hurt her side too much. Grimacing, she rose unsteadily to her feet, balancing herself with a hand against the wall.
She couldn't remember the last time she'd been in this much pain. The sharp stabs from her side; the aching soon-to-be purple bruises on her face, arms, and legs; the dull throb from the cut on her head and her split lip; all these seemed to melt together into one large pain that consumed her body. Her head started to spin as she straightened, and she decided that sitting back down might be beneficial.

"Where do you think you're going?" Sarah's voice followed Jadia's turned back.
"I'm going away from you."
"Oh no you don't! You brought me here. You're not going to leave me here alone now."
"I will if you would stop talking to me."
"I'm a teacher. I make my living talking. I'm not about to let you walk away and leave me alone in here." Sarah was whineing. She knew it, but she didn't remember the way through the Labyrinth. And she didn't look forward to trying it without any of her friends.
Jadia turned around slowly to face Sarah.
"You have no power over me, Sarah." Jadia's words left her before she had thought.
Sarah's head suddenly felt swimmy. As though she'd eaten another peach. Her vision blurred and her eyes rolled into the back of her head. Her hands went to her chest and she collasped in a heap.

Jareth walked down the main sidewalk of the campus of Blank University. He had his pale golden hair back in a low ponytail and his dual colored eyes gazed over the buildings that housed several of the classes. This seems like as good a place as any to get on with my life. I've spent far too much time on her as it is. He thought as his feet guided him to the door of Rune Hall, the building that the boy's dorms were in.
A cool breeze flowed across the campus as he opened the door and walked into the building. I wonder who they have me rooming with. He thought idly as he waited for the elevator because his

She pushed play.
It couldn't have been him, yet there he was, again.
The Goblin King.
She pushed pause on the remote and blankly stared at his face on the screen. If he didn't have such distinct features, she probably would not have recognized him. He was a far cry from how she had seen him last; his hair now hung limp around his face and looked unkempt, his normally thin face was pale, even haggard, and his once beautiful eyes had the wary, frightened expression of a dog who'd been kicked repeatedly.
Seemingly without thinking, she picked up the phone and dialed the numbers frozen on the bottom of the screen.

Jareth was pacing his throne room when his steward walked in on him. "I'm sorry to bother you your Majesty, however you have a guest."
Jareth looked up, aggravated at his steward. "By all means Devon, show them in then," he said taking a seat on his throne.
Devon nodded and turned to escort the guest in. Jareth wondered who would be calling on him. He didn't have many visitors. Most Fae disliked coming to the Goblin Kingdom simply because it was that, a goblin kingdom. They viewed the goblins as dirty little creatures that were always up to no good. Jareth, not being well liked among certain members of Fae society because of the "games" he liked to play, had been put in charge of the Goblin Kingdom at a young age. The high council had figured that by thrusting so much responsibility at him, he would have to sober up and take charge. However their p

One month seemed to take forever! It had been a grand total of twenty-two days and Sarah couldn't believe how much she missed the insufferable Goblin King. Her roommate Vivienne had asked several times who he was and why hadn't he come back around since, but Sarah had skillfully avoided answering fully.
It was still a week before Thanksgiving break and in an attempt to take her mind off of Jareth, she'd been hanging out with her friends in the theater department, helping to build sets and sew costumes when necessary. Mostly she hung out with her friend Nate, who knew about her "boyfriend" but was kind enough to not press for information, unlike Vivienne. "Sarah, don't you think you've done enough?" he asked as she finished up the final touches painting a backdrop.
She rose from her crouched position and wiped her brow, leaving a long blue streak of paint across her forehead. Nate chuckled, but didn't say anything. "No, I have been doing just the right amount of work than
Return to Labyrinth-TearsWhen Jareth greeted them, he showed no signs of trickery or maliciousness. Sarah was eventually put at ease about the situation they were in when he showed them the room they were to stay in. However, on the way, they passed another room on their way to theirs. The door was opened slightly. Glancing in, Sarah glimpsed a very dark room, owed to the fact that most everything was black or covered in black or red. A dark figure was sitting on the edge of the black and red bedspread and it took Sarah a while to recognize the figure as Dante, since his head was in his hands. His thin shoulders were shaking. They passed the room quickly as soon, Sarah momentarily forgot about what she had seen. Her breath was taken away by her own room. Two large beds were set up side by side, covered with light blue velvet and silk bedspreads. The dressing table was equipped with a large mirror and accessories to make Toby and herself as comfortable as possible.Return to Labyrinth-Tears9 years ago in General Fiction More Like This

He couldn't quite remember the contents of the dream he'd just had, but he knew it'd been threatening to both himself and Sarah. Speaking of Sarah, her warm weight still pressed down on him. He shivered and wrapped his arms around her again. She shifted on him, nuzzling her face into his neck. He stroked her back, calming himself with the knowledge that she was safe here with him at this moment. The future was uncertain, but at this moment she was safe in his arms.

"Lady Sarah, wake up," a soft voice whispered. Sarah groaned, but made an effort to rouse herself. "Come, come, girl. If you want to see Lord Jareth before his trial then I suggest you get moving."
Jareth the name brought her to full attention and she sat up, stretching a little as she did so. She looked around, remembering why she was here then she looked down to see Hermaphroditus still coiled around her upper arm. Good morning, Sarah, the dragon greeted.
Mornin' Herm, she replied. She glanced back up to see Healer Orin examining her curiously. It was obvious that he was holding back questions. Normally Sarah would have told him to ask, but just then she really wanted to see Jareth. "Shall we?" she asked standing.

Only a Dream 16Sarah felt like she was going to hyperventilate. Her breathing was quickly becoming very rapid and very shallow. Shoving Jareth aside, she stumbled a step or two before falling to her knees. Forcing herself to breath in through her nose and out through her mouth, she darted a glance around the bubble. This time, it wasn't just her mind caught inside. From what the blond git had said, she was well and truly trapped within the magical bauble. Unlike her previous experience seeing the inside of a glass crystal, this one did not boast anything large enough, or heavy enough, to shatter the iridescent sides. Well, she corrected herself, glowering slightly, almost nothing. If only she could use a certain royal noggin as a battering ram... It was large enough, after all, though she wondered if it would have enough weight. It was mostly hot air and ego, after all.Only a Dream 164 years ago in Romance More Like This
