GND 312 - Perks and Preparations by Pika-la-Cynique GND 312 - Perks and Preparations by Pika-la-Cynique
(yeah title is a gratuitious pun on that TV show)

Let! Skeep! Go! To! Paris!

So over the years I've had a few people asking for a floor map of the cast's flats and, lol no, else I get in my own way for doing blatant recons like such. :D
Basically consistency says, however: in that 3rd panel, door to the left of the girls is Christine's room, to the right is Sarah's, and the the bathroom - where the cleaning stuff is being stored for now. (New???!) Airing cupboard/storage closet is walk-in size, and now ceded territory.

Christine's first line a heavy implication as to how Jareth dealt with the pissy cantatrice's return back in 310.

If there is any way to enlarge that last panel and give us just a post of that adorable little shopping nut, that would make my day:D

<o___<o real world though I've had enough layovers and weekend trips to Paris from the other side of the world and still don't know where to shop or go *really* there for clothes or comics (except Album of course)....so if you have any real world recommendations for someone who's French isn't confident enough to just meet people with better fashion sense and ask.....please share?

I'm not a resident myself, but pass through often enough.
For clothes, scroll down a coupla comments to my exchange with cheesecakem-consumo here.
The Galeries Lafayette/Nouvelles Galeries make for a posh and pricey shopping experience, but they do have a good selection from lots of major brands all in the same place, at least.

For comics, I'm afraid that big Album near St Michel is due to close down, due to crazy rent - sad for readers, but I gather the owner was a pretty shitty boss, that being said.
This place is pretty trippy, though: montenlair.wordpress.com/about…
Le Dernier Bar Avant La Fin du Monde is a great geek hangout with themed decor and drinks.

oh no what, Album's closing?! D: I finally get to a point in this stupid chronic illness where I can think to travel again and go back to France and Album closes *flips desk*

I'll have to star the places you mentioned on google maps though. And ah I've been to Galeries Lafayette when I was younger and all I remember is thinking how poor I am, but maybe it'll be different nowadays?

I really want Skeep's judgment call alongside Christine over Sarah trying on clothes. XD Skeep = <3 I adore Skeep. I also adore how close Christine and Sarah are and how they can continually talk to each other about stuff like this.

Ah, I thought in the first panel that they were cleaning up in preparation for the new arrangements, but apparently they're actually moving the existing cleaning stuff out of the way!
So they've managed to locate the smallest and least desirable 'room' in the flat to sacrifice as Goblin territory ;)  Christine might want to remove the shelves before the 'stepping-inside' bit, though...  At least the requirement for the crystal should avoid any Fail-Field-related accidental transportation of nosy cleaning ladies, tidy-minded visitors, small brothers, Nanny Ogg, etc. :D

Is the Goblin Kingdom likely to contribute 6% to the rent? ;p

Hmm, I thought Jareth had a trip to Paris lined up as his big treat for Sarah.  How is he likely to react on discovering that he has been pre-empted by someone better able to act as a native guide? :D

Outdressing Jareth might be... risky/tricky. Especially if it involves lots of spikes!
(On the other hand, he seemed to approve of Christine's choice for Sarah at the ball...)

I think he'd be happy to come to a sub...letting payment deal with Sarah, but he ought be cautious of keeping this development from Marsha, who is canonically fond of alternative arrangements with certain tenants....

Skeep!! Skeep in Paris?? Oh, please yes, even for one panel!

And my curiosity about the annexation is finally satisfied! I wonder if Jareth agreed to that closet because it's as close as he can get to Sarah's bedroom and the bathroom...

Great job as always!

:) I'm hardly stylish or in the know, but I'd recc the Marais area generally for wandering and some thrift shops, and I have vague friend reasons to plug Voriagh - franco-italian green-tending designer ladies' boutique of affordable vaguely witchy-chic clothes and jewelry.
If you've got the budget, Comptoir des Cotonniers and Zadig&Voltaire are reliable Parisian classiness....

Skeep is a gender-indifferent, kidney-stabbing, avant-garde fashionista goblin originally created by Lixxle in her hilarious fanfics, and has shown up a few times in GND already.

So happy to have another lovely page - and the idea of a girl's night out in Paris for shopping sounds wonderful. I've always enjoyed the Christine-and-Sarah-Fun-Times. Seems like a good time for it too, with all this relationship stuff brewing in the background. ALSO SKEEP!!! HOW I'VE MISSED SKEEP!! <3 ^_^

This has probably been answered, but we're 300 strips deep at this point and I can't remember ... do Jareth and Sarah have his and her own goblins? I feel like goblins are a lot like dogs and have their favorite person they consider themselves most loyal to.

Pika-la-Cynique Featured By Owner Jan 26, 2018  Professional General Artist
I know I answered something like this looooong ago. But yes, besides her old gang, Sarah has some goblins that have attached their personal loyalties and affections to her; less boggings and kickings, more chance of cookies and pizza. Gip and Snockit, certainly; Skeep is a very affable critter who appreciates getting to borrow the girls' accessories, but will be swayed by whoever is rocking the fiercest outfit that day.
Ye traditional prideful Fae monarch ought to come down like a ton of creatively murderous bricks on any such hints of impertinence and disloyalty to the crown, but the cannier Goblins may have guessed they are in fact acting according to Kingy's longterm plans in hiding in Sarah's figurative skirts and cultivating her fondness and defensiveness/sense of ownership for them, and any Goblin dim enough to think he is truly switching sides and getting out from under Jareth's gloved thumb is too moronic to trouble with.
