Yes this all looks rather familiar. Poor Sarah and her multiple in-comic headaches.

(because of RL terribad happenings I will try to get you the second part of this soon- I think we all need silly, shippy escapist fanservice right now....)






This is a work of fanart and solely intended for shits and giggles. Not mine, not making money from it.

Sarah, Jareth [Labyrinth] (c) Lucas, Froud, Henson; Connelly&Bowie
Christine Daaé [Phantom of the Opera] (c) Leroux and Webber
Skeep (c) Lixxle

Based on the original Roommates comic by *AsheRhyder

good morning Sarah! You would think by now she would be used to him popping up randomly in her apartment whenever she says his name.

she didn't though! his title shouldn't carry that kind of magical pager effect.....

Given the goblin in one corner and Sarah's comments on thin walls a few panels back, I assumed the snoring fuzz-ball on the pillow was Ludo :D But it seems they're spending the night in Liz's spare room and the bedmate is Christine.

(I also assumed the distant visual crash(?) in the top panel was something waking Sarah up, but apparently it's just headache...)

A pocket-sized silent Jareth might be a definite improvement!

I notice that Sarah doesn't actually say his name (also, no summoning glitter-poof), so does that imply that he has been lurking in the bathroom overhearing everything that's said all night...?
N.B. Eavesdroppers deserve everything they hear ;p

"Hasslle"? :(

Also, hurrah!
I've finally reached the beginning of my stacked up dA notifications, i.e. all the pages that started arriving while I was still reading the earlier ones; can start actually ticking them off now ;)

They are in the same room as before, is a pull-out sofa bed. Going to sleep in the fumes of a booze-up always adds to the waking-up-hungover joy.

(the ambiguous opening panel has to do with explanation on next page - yeah?)

"Hasslle" : .... look it's 3am and she has a hangover, typos can happen.   :ashamed:

Explanation on next page... ah, so that's Jareth's nightmare about the collapsing castle that woke her up?

Yeah, pretty much. Besides the dehydration, etc. It was a bit of confusing feedback loop, probably, Sarah's RL headache/feeling shitty and Jareth's memory-explanation of it synching up in their dreams.

At least there's no toilet involved in this bathroom meet-up...

Bahahaha oh Jareth :D Sarah needs to be careful about her big mouth, but I'll take it any day :-) Thank the Lord for fanservice! :D

One of the things that I love most about your work is your attention to little details - like the fact that Chris is snoring in French. :D

From your mouth to Cthulu's ear.

Wait...does he have ears?

this is a good question...  I found this on squid "Squid can hear, scientists have confirmed. But they don't detect the changes in pressure associated with sound waves, like we do. They have another, more primitive, technique for listening: They sense the motion generated by sound waves." (livescience.com)

based on this, I'd say out of water he is deaf, or more like out of water sounds like underwater to us?

Of course, Cthulhu being a god from another part of the galaxy altogether, it's anyone's guess what - or where - his organs of perception actually are. He might hear with his kneecaps for all we know.
Talinna-Xan's avatar
and I'm guessing he keeps those well guarded under his skirt of tentacles?
CrackedEmerald's avatar
You can have a look if you like. I'll watch from here.

You neglect to take into consideration that he is an Elder God, and not actually a squid.
Talinna-Xan's avatar
and your mythos logic trumps my real world logic.

Question: what happened to drinks and a date from 259? Plus, I love this random show of how "special" Jareth is.

My favorite part about this is how the manner of his complaint kind of proves her point.  Lurking in bathtubs is pretty creepy!

ACK! Another 4 am reference!

For those playing the home game, 4 am appears in movies, songs, poetry, art, and just about every medium. There's even a 4 am museum somewhere. just google it. There's a few TED talks too. 
Its that crazy time that's too late to be late and too early to be early <3

It's 4:03 and I can't sleep
Without you next to me I
Toss and turn like the sea
If I drown tonight, bring me
Back to life
Breathe your breath in me
The only thing that I still believe
In is you, if you only knew (ShineDown "If You Only Knew")
.... sorry this lodged in my head upon reading your comment, so I figured I'd share.

Jareth, the master in the art of popping out of nowhere when you expect him the less XD

And just what, may I ask, are YOU doing there, Goblin King? If you're trying to score more points with Sarah by trying to convince her to let you cure her hangover, her response leaves the impression that that attempt is going to go in the opposite direction.
