GND - JS seasonal fluff: sugar cookies by Pika-la-Cynique GND - JS seasonal fluff: sugar cookies by Pika-la-Cynique
Sarah's Christmas baking session had been hassle enough, timing easily-burnt cookies while trying to keep greedy sugar-high goblins out of the mixing bowl, before her NotActually, Currently Official Boyfriend (and she still wasn't sure how she felt about that whole development besides A Lot) the Goblin King turned up to be his usual glittery, poofy-haired, personal-space-dismissive self in her (very warm) kitchen, and she'd only half-sarcastically asked if he wanted to lick the spoon, and.....

....

(I'd still keep an eye on that spoon, though, Jareth.)



(no time for a full page, with lots of moving around to visit family over the holidays but gotta have SOMETHING to mark the 10-year anniversary, falling on a Wednesday no less.....)


----



Jareth, Sarah [Labyrinth] (c) Lucas, Froud, Henson; Bowie&Connelly


Heavily inspired by a lovely Christmas fic of Subtilior 's, also.

The look on Sarah's face just says it all.  I have a feeling that spoon is going to end up on the floor as a proper snog-fest commences.  :)

I am on the former side here, and could totally see her 1-upping him with discomforting personal space and romantic teasing just to trip him up...

...and then hit him with a spoon.

lol, I think we've discussed before that Jareth probably gets off on being bossed around and hates himself for it. My personal head canon anyway, because that guy can never get a break.

I always wondered if that was why Henson picked Bowie to be Jareth in the first place and was able to get away with the movie rating he did...

Ah, there's quite a bit of making-of material explaining all that, as you probably know.... They wanted someone with "rockstar allure" (Sting and Michael Jackson were also considered...) whom a teenage girl would find both appealing and intimidating (and they needed a peripheral fandom to make box-office, fantasy flicks were not profitable), Bowie completely nails the not-quite-human vibe, and the coming-of-age stuff and teenage Sarah freaking out in the face of adult male sexuality is very thematically deliberate also. Although yes, there are quotes about some of the creators "wondering how we got away with that..." and I think some regret/shame on Bowie's part about the innappropriateness-for-kiddies in later years, though I think he completely understood the part he was to play.

I just got the 30th anniversary "Making Of" book for Christmas and this all rings totally true. I first saw this movie at age...7? And none of the adult stuff twigged for me until I saw it again when I was in my teens. Didn't have a clue who Bowie was at the time (growing up under a rock anyone?) but even without that inside knowledge, he set of all sorts of different alarms for me at age 14 than at 7.

Dang, I actually think I started following you along in 2009?
I think you were just about to publish the "Sarah getting a bucket of water thrown on her" scene.

I can't believe it's been so long!
Regardless, reading ur comic has been a very bright spot in my life :)
Have a wonderful New Year!

I have been following this since the beginning and am still in love with it. Of course I am mostly here for anything J/S, but everything you write is so much fun. I know you might not want to continue this forever, but I do hope you at least give us closure with J/S solid relationship (possibly wedding bells).

All things considered, he's being very restrained for him. Look at the space he's physically giving her despite his actions. Way to make a tangle of things, Jareth. Sarah could probably bake a batch of cookies with that blush on her face.
Also hurrah for fluff!

Nice apron, Sarah.  Cookie baking... this reminds me of how I first became acquainted with Loki, whom Jareth is descended from in terms of myth/fable inspiration.  Some of my college classmates, and I, were baking and decorating cookies with assorted mystical symbols; someone mentioned that none of them were turning out as intended, and another said it was likely Loki getting into them and making a mess.
Something tells me Jareth will only fix this incoming kitchen fire waiting-to-happen if he is allowed a large sack of cookies as compensation.

I’ve researched the movie, I’ve never heard he descended from Loki. He’s a wizard and fae, is what Brian Froud said.

I know.  I'm just talking about general inspiration, not necessarily the mythos surrounding his birth, growth and existence.
