A very enjoyable tale! I especially like that she was able to continue to live above, I feel like this satisfies my feminist need for her to be a seperate non dependent person and the usefulness of being able to continue growing up too.

She wants to get home because her friends and family are important to her. She wants to get home because after solving the labyrinth to save Toby her relationship is important. She wants to get home because as she said she didn't want a marriage with someone she didn't know for a trade agreement on behalf of a clan that she just met and a princess who was a stranger to her. They disrespect her bodily autonomy. Jereth did keep her against her will when asking for help with magic he gave her. He didn't care or respect that she valued her family and wanted them not to fear for her safety after watching her go through his labyrinth, unpresidented for a human, to fix her failure with Toby. He likes having a equal, not underling, and she's the only one with magic of his kind. He's probably tired of almost everyone flinching when they see him. She adjusted to judging the march light dispute within seconds of meeting the disputers. She came up with a reasonable solution to a problem within Hereth's labyrinth after staying less than fortnight. She cares enough to see the wished away children, and gives them choclate. She is quite fond of, if not in love with his world. She challenges him and being not afraid of him, has a different kind of relationship with him. As for being bossy, I see that as, at least at the end, how do you explain a supernatural friend to your parent? She also had seen Jereth fling the cleaners at her, what might he do and how might he hurt her dad. I also see the Aaron thing as I don't want you to emotionally or magically harm my friend. Perhaps the last I don't want you to see my parents was a little too much, but not so much to make me hate this Sarah. As for calm and assured, she got out of the Labyrinth and Dara's clutches with help, but also some boldness and some quick doesn't abuse Jereth because she doesn't take him away from people he cares about, tell him how to rule, or constantly check up on him and demand he always be with her That's to me why Jereth can be cruel, Sarah is a heroine, Sarah is not a brat, or at least more than one, and going home is important to Sarah.

I really enjoyed that. I loved that Jareth let her stand up for herself. The feminist in me purred with satisfaction. Leaving the end open ended with lots. Of future possibilities is such a nice way to end. Though part of me wonders if jareth will discover that he loves her, the rest is glad that it's open to possibilities :)

This sounds like it will prove promising. Can't wait to sink my teeth into it.

Wow! I loved your story! You had such a neat background and progression. I haven’t read anything quite like this, and it’s definitely one of my favorite Labyrinth fics! Thanks for writing!
VictoriaSwan chapter 22 . 9/7/2019
I really loved this story, especially after the first few chapters. I can see you’ve been writing other stuff more recently, but I’d still love to see a sequel to this — what’s Gabriel up to? How do Sarah and Jareth deal with college? What’s sarah’s next encounter with Angharad like? Great work, thanks for sharing!
Lady Ailuros chapter 22 . 9/1/2019
I just wanted to let toy know that I really, really enjoyed this fic. It made me smile. It made me giggle. It made me fall in love with Sarah and Jareth all over again. I loved Sarah's struggles with herself, her new nature, and the Daras. I loved seeing her grow into herself and learn that there's more to people than what's obvious on the surface. It was lovely to read. Thank you so much for sharing it with us.
Maantje chapter 22 . 7/8/2019
I just wanted to send a review about this story, even though it is as old as it is. This is honestly one of my favorite stories I have read through the many years I've been in the fandom. I've read this multiple times and is always one of the first stories I recommend to my friends who want to read Labyrinth Fanfiction. While I would have liked a sequel, I love how finished the story still feels without it.
Guest 2019 chapter 22 . 6/19/2019
This is a well written, very interesting story. I am, however, left with a strong sense of unease about the future of the Goblin King and Queen as a couple. It feels like their relationship will be forever acrimonious, and that certainly does not pave the way to true happiness. What a pity if that is the case.

I stayed up till 2 to finish reading this and I dearly regret it because the clocks change tonight and I haven't changed them so it's more like 3am and I have work in the morning. Really though this was a lot of fun to read so being brain dead at work seems like a fair trade off. Thanks for the fun.

In 2004 you introduced this lovely story as your first Labyrinth story. Where are the others? Thank you for sharing.

See I don't find Jareth to be insufferable. Sure he's a bit manipulative but he's not lied or acted cruely; I think this Sarah had control issues. Any time Jareth acts differently than she wants him to, she gets angry and snappy. That's not healthy. It's also not "compromise" when Sarah gets whatever she wants and becomes a booty call in return. This looks done to failure because all signs seem to say she's embarrassed by him in the human world. Again, why does he even like her? I really don't like this epilogue because ultimately before this moment your Sarah seemed to be maturing and had Jareth's support. Now it seems like she's trying to mother hen him.
the Honeycomb chapter 14 . 10/29/2018
Ok I think I see where you're going with this. It looks like we've got a Sarah who is trying to come to terms with her new physical and magical features. She's still a teenager just looking for identity. This makes hey much more relatable, and hopefully she stays away from the spite.
the Honeycomb chapter 11 . 10/29/2018
I find Sarah is far too angry and rude to Jareth even when she admits her poor behavior to herself. She may think "I want to behave better" but she's annoying and exhausting. And has no real redeemable feature that would ensure Jareth's affection yet seems to have it anyway; her bossiness alone is a major turn off. It seems like a slightly abusive relationship in that she rarely gives and he gives always. All while she still accuses him of being an arrogant and cruel person. Which is a shame because I really like your idea, the plot is interesting, but Sarah doesn't come across as self assured or the heroine of the tale, she's more what Jareth always calls her, a brat. I'm not sure if that was intentional in this story, but if so I really think it was unnecessary; a more pushpull, givetake relationship than what had been described. Also, I personally can't understand Sarah's overwhelming need to get back home. it's bland in comparison.
