Power Over You - Labyrinth -Jareth~ Power Over You ~
There's a silence.
It's hanging in the air.
Say your right words,
Oh, clearly, if you dare.
I have the power
To make your dreams come true.
Yes, I have power
And I will take from you
That which you claim
To wish to lack.
What would you go through
To make your way
To get it back?
Here is the moment
In which the choice is made.
Such a sweet tremble...
That your voice betrayed.
Turn back, Sarah.
Turn back, before it's too late.
There is no winning in this.
I, too, am resigned to that fate.
Oh, you cower.
I was frightening. Yes, it's true.
I have such power
Such a pity...
It's further than you think.
Time is short,
And things can change each time you blink.
What would you give?
What do you say?
Do you have what it takes?
How can I live
This every day?
How about upping the stakes?
Don't try me.
Don't defy me.
Deny my power,
But you know it's true...
That I have power
It's not fair?
You say that so often.
I wonder wha

It's far From Over
Sarah sank down into the chair in front of her vanity, the party was over and all her new found friends had returned to the Underground. It was now well after midnight and she was exhausted, running the Labyrinth had been difficult and not nearly as easy as it had seemed in the book. She glanced briefly at the draw where she had placed the velvet bound book along with her music box and other precious items. Who would have thought that that small book held the secretes of another world?
She smiled to herself remembering how many time she had acted out scenes from the book. She had thought it nothing more than a fairytale, how wrong she had been! It had turned out to be more of a nightmare full of her fantasies all turned against her. She shuddered at the memory of the dream ball. All her life she had dreamed about being old enough to go to a ball, to dance with a handsome prince, to be swept of her feet. But it hadn't been what she hoped; it

Mondays had always been Sarah's least favourite day of the week. One it meant that she had to go back to school, Two that she would get a load more homework to do after she had just finished the last lot and Three because it would be a whole five days before the weekend. In short the reason Sarah detested Mondays was because it meant she had to spend five days in hell. The cause of Sarah's hatred to school wasn't because she was bad at her classes; in fact in all her classes she had reasonably good grades, only in English and Drama did she really excel. No it was because she didn't really have any friends there.
When Sarah had been little she had had many friends, they enjoyed playing together, pretending to be fairies or princesses, but as they had become older they had began to grow out of their childish fantasies. Sarah who had helplessly clung onto them was soon shut out o

Sarah woke the next day her body sore and stiff, if there had been any doubt in her mind that the Labyrinth had been nothing more than a dream, it quickly vanished as pain shot through her body. Also the mess left over from the party was testimony that it had not been her imagination running wild. She stretched her aching limbs and rose from the bed and glanced down at her clothes that were wrinkled from having been slept in. Usually she would never go to sleep without changing first but she had been so tired last night.
A groan escaped from her lips as she made to move forward but was halted by the twinges of pain from her legs. Looked like her body still hadn't fully recovered from her little adventure.
"Nothing a hot shower won't fix." She muttered as she made her way slowly to the door.
After her shower Sarah felt much better the aches in her body were much easier to ignore now and she didn't grimace when she walked back into her room to get dressed. AS

CHAPTER 10: Just a Little Bit Longer
He didn't save them. She cried out his name and he didn't arrive. A part of Sarah's heart shriveled thinking Jareth abandoned her and Toby to the Banshees. Swallowing her pride and rising terror, Sarah desperately cried out for him a second time. Bitter, frustrated tears collected in her eyes, but she refused to allow them free reign over her cheeks for the Banshees to witness. The circling wraiths would see her strong to the last in defense of her brother damn the Goblin King!
'This must be his revenge,' she thought, 'trick his way back into our lives, make me feel ... things ... then desert us when we need him!'
"Sarah." Toby tugged her pant leg. "Why aren't they attacking?"
Glancing down quickly at her wide-eyed brother, Sarah shrugged. He was right. The Banshees continued to surround them and occasionally lunge, but none made physical contact ... yet. As if they waited for something, or desired to escalate

Oh, Yer Majesty
Tobias was calling him. Jareth heard his frantic voice screaming his name, over and over, but couldn't wade through the morass of hurt and shame. He'd done the unthinkable. He'd harmed the one person he'd sworn to protect above all othershis champion and his love. He couldn't save Sarah. He'd tried. All his magic was useless to bring her back. If he hadn't deserved this punishment of self-inflicted disconnection, he would've responded Tobias to tell him as much.
Jareth shuddered. His magic had caused her injury. He wished to die. Maybe if he lay very still and pulled far enough away, he would cease to exist. He'd heard of fae willing themselves through the veil before. Could he join Sarah there? Was she there? He had no idea if fae and mortals ended in similar places. He'd no cause to wonder before now.

Cum hoc ergo propter hoc
Toby woke to the muted sounds of crying and muttering. Daylight crept into the room around the imperfect seal of the floral curtains, and dust sparkled in the air as he rubbed his eyes clear. "Sarah?" He pushed back the rough blanket and sat up. "What's wrong?" he asked the air as he swiveled in place.
It didn't sound like her crying; he'd heard enough of that the last months and would recognize it instantly. Swinging his legs over the end of the too large bed, Toby scooted until his feet settled on the scratchy carpet and curled his toes. The covers were missing from the other bed; the whole thing yanked and messy.
"Sarah?" He tugged at the hem of his PJ shorts. The crying didn't change, and he figured it must be coming from the bathroom since neither she or Jareth were in the bedroombut a pile of their clothes were, shoved and tossed along the far wall. Goosebumps ran over his arms. He didn't like this, felt too much like the day he found out about

"Meep, does this have anything to do with my friends?"
"Where are they Meep?"
"In the dungeon in Castle beyond Goblin City."
"What!" Sarah shrieked. Meep flinched at her voice.
"Sarah?" Her father called from downstairs, "is everything all right honey?"
"Um yeah everything's fine. I... um... couldn't understand something from my History notes." It was a stupid lie but it was the only thing she could come up with.
"Do you want some help?" Her Father shouted.
"No!" She quickly yelled back, "I mean... um don't worry I think I worked it out now."
"Well ok if you're sure."
Sarah let out a sigh of relief, the last thing she needed was for her father to walk in with Meep sobbing on the floor.
She whirled back round to see Meep crawling under her bed.
"Oh no you don't!" she lunged forward grabbing the small Goblin by the leg.
"No! No! Meep no wanna see Lady, mad!" the Goblin wailed.

CHAPTER 15: Super Soaker Joker
They were doing it again, acting weird. The same way they had been acting the night he and Sarah found Jareth in the woods and (now that he really thought about it) last night when he woke up in the dark. From the opposite end of the pool, Toby watched his sister turn bright red as she floated face to face with Jareth in the deep end. Their lips were moving, but he couldn't hear what they said since they kept their voices low.
Probably something weird anyway. He huffed and burrowed his chin farther into his palm.
When Sarah first joined him in the water (towing a paler than usual Jareth behind her), Toby had been excited. She rarely went swimming anymore (even before That Day). She just lay by edge "catching rays" as she called it.
Stupid sun. Stupid older sisters. He splashed some water away from him, creating a small wave.
So he was happy his fun-loving sister was finally back to horse around with him; Jare

One clear look at Jareth's downtrodden expression (such a contrast to his earlier elation) as he sat next to Toby, who looked nearly as depressed as Jareth, was enough for Sarah to add up the answer to her question. Sitting in the half gloom, both males appeared as subdued as someone who's best puppy had run away. She had expected Jareth at least to have been lecturing Toby on his behavior, but how could he when he was obviously as guilty?
And what about me? She felt her neck muscles tense, her words to Toby about playing with his toys bouncing in her ears. No wonder he sprayed us. Suddenly she felt over exposed and self-conscious in her bathing suit, and wished she'd grabbed her towel as a wrap.
"Are you mad at me?" Toby asked in a small voice, his little eyes hovering at the edge of his folded forearms.
How could she be when she felt so guilty? "No, squirt," she sighed as she walked inside the room, "I'm not mad." She grabbed a loosed t-shirt and pulled
Soul MazeIt might have been an owl gliding through the night on velvet wings, or it might have been a dream, slipping through the inky coils of imagination. Far below its soft pinions and curled talons, a landscape unlike any other unrolled like a great, living map. In every direction the owl's round eyes looked, there it lay, motionless under its gaze, but ready to twist and change as soon as it chanced to look away.Soul Maze2 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
The Labyrinth. A miles wide, sprawling maze that incorporated every kind of terrain into its structure, including forests and deserts, but most of it comprised of the stone walls that folded over and over on themselves to form intricate pathways, so the Labyrinth, taken whole from above, seemed an overgrown playground. There was more to the Labyrinth than even the owl, huge and white in the moonlight, could see. There was another maze beneath this one, almost as large, where anyone caught in its twists would have to solve it in the claustrophobic confines of earth and darkness. Th

CHAPTER 13: Fashion Disaster
"Jareth?" Sarah knocked on the bathroom door, a bit concerned fifteen minutes after he entered and no word or Goblin King emerged. "Are you okay?" Seconds later the door cracked open and his pale arm thrust out, a blue and gray cloth bundle tangled in his long-fingered grip. His haughty voice came to her, muffled by the particle board separating them.
"This is unacceptable."
"This attire," he said, waving the haphazardly twisted bundle in her face, forcing her to grab it twohanded from him to avoid an eye abrasion from the free flying sleeves.
"It is un ac cept - able," Jareth repeated, enunciating each syllable with prideful precision. Gritting her teeth, Sarah pushed the bundle back through the barely open door, bypassing Jareth's retracing arm, and tossed it somewhere inside.
"It's fine, Your Highness," she replied snidely. "Put it on." She heard his rapid in drawn breath, the strangled be

After Sarah retrieved her heavy, wool, trench coat from her closet, Jareth teleported them directly to the outskirts of the party's location; sometime during the travel a very stylish black, leather, trench coat appeared on him completing their look. Sarah hid a small smile at his weakness to vanity. He did nothing second class, but then when you possessed the ability to create whatever you wanted why should you?
Sarah's law firm won an especially important case earlier in the year and chose to reward the entire firm by reserving an extraordinary party location, even by their usual standards; the Philadelphia Museum of Art. Once she'd learned of the setting she couldn't wait to attend since the Museum of Art was one of her favorite hang outs; a place she'd taken Jareth to several times the past few years and he too had enjoyed it immensely.

The line she waited in inched forward and she sighed...again...counting four persons remaining before her turn. It would be worth it, she reminded herself, he deserved only the best and her remorse still niggled.
The look on Jareth's face when she'd slipped up and admitted she'd already accepted another man as an escort to the Christmas party...crap...she'd never forget the utter devastation he displayed for a few seconds before he railed at her. In the last four years since he'd literally and unexpectedly popped back into her life, she'd never seen him look so...so vulnerable and pained. Until that exact moment she hadn't really believed Jareth felt anything more than friendship for her.

"Kingy, Kingy!" His goblin Skittle popped into his throne room where Jareth lounged, draped upon his stone and great horn throne, his head tipped back against the edge.
"What?" Jareth snapped not bothering to turn his head, his wispy white hair drifting about his face as he deeply sighed. His mood was distinctly poor since the fight with his Sarah. It began earlier today over her annual Christmas party this evening at her place of business which he insisted she shouldn't attend alone. She blurted that she wasn't attending alone before clapping her hand firming over her mouth and turning wide eyes to his surprised and hurt expression. He couldn't quite remember the exact words he'd said in response to her extremely hurtful decision but he did remember he chose to be hurtful as well before vanishing back to his castle.
"Kingy, thing for you!"
"I don't want it. Take it away." He waved his gloved hand dismissively and continued

“No you did not!” Sarah snapped at him, shoving him away. She looked around but Toby was no where to be found. She called out for him, hurrying into the hall. Apart from a few goblins and chickens scurrying around she couldn't see a sign of him. “Where did he go?”
Sarah yelped and turned around, seeing him stand right behind her, leaning over her slightly. She frowned and took a step back. “Yeah, and I'm the queen of hearts.” She bit out, annoyed.
He bowed, taking her hand and placing a kiss on it. “So I've noticed.” Jareth stepped closer and he grinned as she didn't step back, tilting his head as he leaned in. “Off with my head?”
“Yes. Both of them.” The woman warned as she made herself bigger, trying to be just a bit intimidating – but she failed miserably. In

Between one eye blink and the next, Sarah's location switched from a rainy, pitch parking lot to a brilliantly lit, mini, enclosed Parthenon replete with classic white marble pillars and a large wading pool in the center. They stood near the water's edge and she noticed a few dozen, brightly colored, fat koi swimming lazily within the translucent shallows. Lily pads and lotus flowers adorned the surface giving the fish shady hiding places.
"You keep goldfish?"
Dee gifted her a withering glare which, coming from the cover girl embodiment of beauty, was incredibly humbling, "They're koi, not goldfish and they can live for centuries. You rather I should get a puppy?"

Darkness gray obscure shapes and sounds tugged at him, Jareth swam up through the fog into a sharp throbbing pain at the base of his skull. Nausea overcame him and he rolled to his side, retching, eyes pinched shut. The rough feel of old, filthy carpet scraped his palms as he supported his upper body until he finished dry-heaving, then rested his forehead to the same harsh surface. His hair curtained either side of his face, filtering out some of the awful sunlight. A hand brushed between his shoulder blades; he jumped slightly but otherwise kept his position.

"No, no, no, this will never work," he mumbled at his agitated reflection in Cassie's bedroom mirror.
