Even though the sword was steel rather than cold iron, he was run through, so that still would have been bloody painful, right? (Perhaps at least while it was inside him and on entry and exit.) Because, melodramatic faint aside, Jareth was pretty chill about the whole thing and didn’t really look to be in much pain to me. That said, I must admit that I loved his attitude about the whole thing. =D Jareth opening one eye from his sprawl to peer up at her as he declares her a spoilsport is wonderful. ^^ You’ve done this whole arc so very, very well, and I love all the detail and depth you’ve put into it. Jareth’s vacillations between his good side and his evil side are wonderful, and I love his explanations throughout. ^^


Also, Sarah being the one to pull the sword out gives me the idea that she was having it ready-at-hand to take a swing at him herself should he continue causing them all pain and grief. And I do love how she placed a foot on his chest to keep him down too. It fits so very well. ^^


(And I adore how you did his eyes in the second last panel – they are gorgeous. ^^)

Jareth! Will you put a sock in all this deeply depressing 'I have to be the villian' stuff?

K, iron kills, not steel.
Got it.

Depends on the fae.  With the more powerful ones, it doesn't always work.  But getting skewered through the aorta is pretty damaging.
Also depends on the continuity. There are some continuities where the iron content OF steel is sufficient to cause problems. Others, it must specifically be iron wrought into its shape by nothing but force, no heat applied.

I must admit to having always been a huge fan of Pratchett's Theory of Narrative Causality, and the poignant way you're playing with it here? Absolutely beautiful.

Thanks muchly!

Okay, so it wasn't an iron sword. But steel has iron in it, so wouldn't it still have some sort of effect on a fey? Mild headache, stomach pains?
AsheRhyder's avatar
Depends on the incarnation of the myth used, I suppose.

Makes sense, but these guys seem somewhat aware of all the versions.

I wish there was an emoticon for "mysterious but silent smile"...

That...needs to happen. Right now. I wonder if Jareth could be of assistance...Erik would be the perfect model for the face, though, I'm sure. Haha.
