... Did Dresden handle the catering or something?

Jar, you cruel faye, what's Kaylee supposed to interrogate now?

Technically the goblins are lined up.

I have always loved the way you do Goblin Script. :3 And I love all of Cheryl's reactions, especially here. Heh, I feel like she's the emissary of the audience--at least of the fangirls, eh?

Never tought I would write that, but I am with Raoul on this one. Now my imagination shows me the original Goblin ball attendees gobble pizza and coke. All sloooowly and salaciously . To "As the world falls down". Ergh. :(

"No Shakeyshakes!"

I think my favorite part of this page is Raoul's stupidly-fond smile in the 4th panel. It's not often that Christine is the one on the receiving end of the "this is the dork on which I have placed my affections" look.
Pika-la-Cynique's avatar
I really tittered over how you worded that. :)
Igenlode's avatar
I love Jareth's look of high-nosed scorn in the first panel... and Christine's disdainful up-look in return! (Also, Raoul's dubious expression at the pizza...)  Christine may be only blue-blood by association, but she has certainly got the mannerisms off pat while acquiring a century or so's self-possession :D
But is Jareth implying that Christine should take credit for that dress choice?
(And does Sarah's "I am owning this" in response refer to said dress and/or choice?)

Has Raoul by any chance witnessed any of Christine's Spice-Girls-and-underwear-while-house-cleaning antics? He looks remarkably happy at the reference ;D

It seems unlikely that Christine is planning a romantic surprise for Jareth and Sarah, simply because she is aiming to plan it with Jareth. So if that is true, unless it's Sarah alone whom she is planning to back-foot then the other possibilities seem rather limited. Erik would be the obvious candidate, save that Jareth has already included him under the umbrella of the previous song -- for what that's worth in Christine's eyes. I refuse to believe she has her sights set on Legolas's affairs. Raoul?

I wonder if the pizza is the goblins' own idea...

Jareth told Christine to take Sarah dress-shopping (and use De Chagny's funds for it), and knew to count on her taste and shipping tendencies to get Sarah into something [form? ;) ]fitting. So yes, he gives her part of the credit for that dress choice, or at least enabling the purchase. Sarah resents being talked over and the implication she was bullied/tricked into wearing the bold thing.

Well, Christine has to have Jareth in her loop since he is the one with the playlist-setting magical abilities; and we all know he would be only too delighted to press Sarah into something slow and romantic and lyrically significant, if one only looks at his past actions. Her exact schemes are unclear though Sarah heavily suspects she's planning cahoots with Jareth.

:rofl:  Aww, come on, little goblin dude! Where's your spirit of mischief and mayhem and exploding fizzy sodas?

And hey, if the Oscars can get random pizza deliveries, whyever not Goblin Masque 2014? Works for me!

Bahahaha..... oh Christine, I knew there was a reason I liked you so much.  So much plotting, so little time.  So is she plotting on behalf of Sarah and Jareth alone, or does she have other targets in mind? As much as I hope she has SxJ in mind, there's a niggling that some other pair will be happy too.  Oh the music opportunities! Something 80's or Bowie would fit right in, but which one for SxJ dancing? So excited! :D

Just want to say that I've been following GND for a couple of years now, and I LOVE it! Keep up the good work :)
Pika-la-Cynique's avatar
Thank you for singing out. :)
Dare I ask if the Za Lord is going to show up?
Pika-la-Cynique's avatar
Dresden is on standby back at the Building as the attendees' potential gatecrashing rescue party, with locks of hair for tracing spells; that was why he was posturing and making bad poetry a dozen or so pages back.

Love love looooooove it! :hug: :happybounce: La la la la I love deviantART!

Oh, concerning love - your development in style, from black & white to the fantastic colours (compliments to Louisa, oh hai name sister ;) ) ... just... yay! Love 
Pika-la-Cynique's avatar
Heh. Just the thought occurred as I was working on the latest colour page, maaaaan, this is not what I first signed up for.... ^^;

Goblin catering at its finest
edarke's avatar
Fabulous drawing and colouring (as usual)! Delivery goblins are awesome! And was that I tiny Harry Potter reference Jareth made while grading Christine?

Thrilled regular posting might be back on track - the snarky pick-me-up that is GND has been missed :)

I'm really hoping that the pizza and coke turns out to be the Dresden reference I think it is. XD
