Yeah. 'Cos all the Building was missing by now was a Chibi-Cthulhu. =D

This is heavily due to [link] and the 'Naughty Tentacles' entry. ^^; And whereas Christine pretty much hands Erik the mental canvas and loaded paintbrush there, I think Sarah's lack of squeamishness is a little frustrating for Jareth. (I mean, sure, a one-day-eventually-for-sure-Goblin Queen can't be too delicate, but I'm sure he'd appreciate a little girlish squealing and maybe jumping into his arms...).

(Those guys who designed the old horror movie posters and pulp comic book covers back in the 30s and 50s must have had so much fun...)


OK, I'm back! And I think I may well have time to post these as usual after all. This one goes up early, to make up for the break and cos I told ~LadyRissa211 I would.

I should be starting on one of the major arcs mentioned in the teaser post, next week...


This is a work of fanart, and solely intended for shits and giggles. No money is being made by this.

Erik and Christine (c) Leroux and Webber.
Jareth and Sarah (c) Henson, Lucas, Bowie and Connelly.
Norrington and the Kraken (c) Disney, Bruckheimer, and Davenport.
Sweeney Todd (c) Prest and Sondheim, Burton and Depp
Legorlando (c) Tolkien (distantly), New Line Cinema, Peter Jackson and Orlando Bloom

Based on the original Roommates comic by ~AsheRhyder

(remembers that Erik is an otaku and had sent Christine a cosplay outfit) Goddammit, this series. Add me to the list of people who've had their spleens split by it.

I love Norrington and Legolas likening it to their respective squid monsters.

Jareth's expression looks like a mixture of jealousy and "can I watch?".

Cool, des tentacules ! On en a toujours besoin chez soi ! Lol, je pense que le fantôme peut s'imaginer, oui.

...Erik... Erik, no. Stop watching that dubbed anime.

And now I wonder if, what with decades of reclusiveness and his canon genius, and the late 19th century's fascination with chinoiseries and Orientalism, Erik didn't just learn Japanese at some point. Or travel there and hang around a Noh theatre....

I'd be surprised if he didn't, the cultured nerd. Wink/Razz Probably keeps a journal in Japanese and writes about how Christine is kawaii desu. *Shudders violently* Anime's done things to my psyche, man.

1.) I feel ya Christine. But at the same time, it's too tiny not to be cute.

2.) What's a Watcher (legolas)?

3.) LOL  Nice job with Sweeney

Erik's face. :XD:
Also, when did Todd officially settle within the complex?
You didn't point this out, but hell, plot convenience ftw.
Lego is so cute. :D

Todd's arrival was chronicled in Roommates. I stuck pretty close to Ashe's continuity for a lot of the earlier pages, we used to update near simultaneously. I get that makes for a rather disjointed reading experience when one is archive-binging, and I should add some links to specific pages,  but originally we kinda had the same audience reading both weekly comics.

You did a great job of mentioning them before.
Don't fret. I'll look them up in my spare time, this is definitely worth the read.

Crap! I forgot to mention some things, I like how Sweeny is freaking out while Jareth looks simply confused/curious. And Erik's face, yes he can imagine Christine, and he probably will for awhile.

I love the drawing of Christine discovering whatever it is. Very dramatic. I like how James and Captain Obvious are wondering what it is and Sarah's feeding it like "it's cute, Jareth do you have a nice bog you can put it in?" Say yes Jareth! Girls like guys who like animals.
