Hoggle, ya sneaky.
(and shame on Luna for enabling grubby cross-world money-making schemes.)

Yes, Jareth has been rather happy of late...

and a passing cameo of a coupla book faves: October "Toby" Daye [necessarily blood-splattered] and her boyf Tybalt, King of Cats, from Seanan McGuire's wonderful urban fantasy series - shout-out to a few people here who started and abetted my fondess for those books. In which fae fruit is something of a big, Not Funny deal......

Okay, so I have been following your art for sometime now. When you put in your comments about Toby and Tybalt, I was curious. If you, an amazing writer and so creative, was saying this series was good, I had to find it. So I went and I saw and I read. And OMG. I love this book series so much. I finished 10 of the books in a week and I am about to start the 11th. Great recommendation.

So, while you're on the topic of politics and law, I thought that something should be mentioned: According to Article 1, Section 9, Clause 8 of the U.S. constitution, Sarah needs congressional approval before she can accept the title of Goblin Queen (I know that's a long way off, but still). Well, she needs it if she wants to retain her citizenship and also not break the law.

Does the United States officially recognize the existence of the Goblin Kingdom and its status as a sovereign nation? Genuinely curious.

VEEP is an Iannucci show, so, all kinds of cringily hilarious incompetence and moral cowardice and backstabbing, surrounding the titular woman Vice President. If that team is in power during MCU events....

From a practical standpoint, it'd probably depend on a) how aware the US is of the Underground's existence and b) American interests. In theory, Congress has oversight abilities over the American intelligence community. In practice, Uncle Phil might be able to misdirect people's attention and sneak Sarah in through a back door, so to speak, especially if he's able to convince them that the Underground either doesn't exist or is too insignificant to merit American attention. (EDIT: Might prove difficult once people know Jareth kidnaps their children.)

I know we're just joking here but this topic got me thinking.

Sarah: As a courtesy, Uncle Phil wants me to remind you that diplomatic immunity won't protect you from a human trafficking charge.
Jareth: BABYSITTING! It's babysitting! These children are WISHED AWAY to me. I can't help it if they have irresponsible caregivers.
Sarah: Yeah, people aren't allowed to just give their kids away whenever they want to, even under normal circumstances. That's why we have CPS and laws on this stuff.
Jareth: Democracy is unbearably aggravating. This is why we still have a monarchy in the Underground.
Sarah: Jareth, you still have a monarchy because you brutally crush any hint of rebellion and bog the survivors.
Jareth: And it does a remarkable job of cutting down on chaos, does it not? You hate red tape more than I do. Admit it, Sarah. Monarchy is vastly superior.
James: ... uh ... Jareth and I ... actually agree on something?

(I got 1750s for POTC4. So definitely Parliament was reigning in the Hanoverians and an Englishman is way, WAY over "kingship by divine [or magical] right".)

There's something to be said for fondness toward one's king versus worshipping a mad tyrant like Jareth. I imagine James favors constitutional monarchy for this very reason and has thought once or twice about smothering Jareth in his sleep.

Too right, Moggle, I see no possible way a drink that causes a "negligible increase in libido" could possibly have adverse effects on a university student.
Also, I'm surprised Luna of all people is going along with this. Maybe Moggle needed her potions expertise?

Negligeable increase! Almost impossible to control for or differentiate from
the natural brain chemistry of a randy, sleep-deprived, finals-traumatized uni student,

Luna... has been taking advantage of her personal pass to the Labyrinth to get all kinds of familiar and comfortable. Yes, Hoggle needed her as  human-shape partner, and to verify the safety of the stuff.

Interesting to see plots from older pages come back, I'd completely forgotten about Hoggle's sneakyness and the secret burlap sack.

I wonder, is the fairy juice similar to giggle water from "magical beasts", though I presume it's non-alcoholic (despite it's properties).

GO Luna for well thought out entrepreneurship, create a new market and target a segment that hold tremendous potential for develloping an expansive franchise, not just because they can buy, but because they can help spread awareness of the product by word-of-mouth or one of the legion of webpages where people can babble about what they liek this week.
instagram alone have the potential to raise fairy juice to the sky just through selfies and duckface.

Fae/Goblin fruit don't need no extra buzz to help selling itself..... traditionally it works rather like cigarettes to the nth power: utterly addictive and ultimately deadly.
However, since Sarah seemed to feel no extra ill consequences from the roofie peach in canon (though the fairytale-binding-food-chains "Jareth let her go" theory pops up a lot in Labyfic....), and Herbology major Neville assures us this is mostly safe, I'm not quite taking that dire approach.
