Man this is chilling, and fantastic! Your descriptions are beautiful and I can feel Sarah's descent into madness (or at least irrationality). I love how seamlessly you wove the poem with the story of Sarah and Jareth, and your interpretation of the Underground not as just another out of the way fae realm but the Underworld, it's almost like Hades and Persephone now that I think about it. I also love how you portrayed Jareth as a king reluctant in love, hating Sarah too much to take away her pain and suffering, but at the same time loving her too much to hurt her forever. It reminds me of a quote I read once, just because you hate someone does not mean you have stopped loving them. This story embodies it! Thanks for sharing such a wonderful story, you are a wonderful writer and I can't wait to read more of your writings.

This gave me so many shivers. It really brings out a darker side of Jareth- I like your explanation for why the labyrinth had been so friendly to her (relatively speaking).

So, I realize you probably don't spend much time here anymore, but I wanted to tell you that I love this story so much, I revisit it at least once a year. And not the 'Oh, I'm super into labyrinth fanfic at the moment and I remember I this one' revisit, but the 'Oh, I remeber this spectacular bit of writing and I want to relive it' kind of revisit. Seriously, it's ensnaring and haunting and twisted and beautiful and I'm so so grateful that you shared this. So thanks. Seriously. Lots of love, M.

Ok, wow that was dark... and you certainly tapped into the not-so-happy tailes/myths stories there. Artfully done though. And it left an impression - not sure I *like* that dark twist on the pairing but it certainly had an impact.
Also - are you familiar with myth/tale of Undine?
Somehow that would fight the mood here... I realize you won't pick this story up but that is something that could fit.

Hi, I haven't started reading yet so I cannot comment on the content. Just wanted to let you know that your German is wrong.
"Does this fearful form fascinate you?" translates to
"Reizt Dich diese schreckliche Gestalt?" or maybe "Reizt Sie diese schreckliche Gestalt?"
I would use the first version though as the second one is the very polite form of speaking.
I also would use "schreckliche Gestalt" as ängstlich implies that the speaker is afraid and not imposing the fear.

I liked the idea of Jareth being a darker elemental force, I can accept the development of events, but I totally disliked the way you described it. Sorry.
Description of a rape in such detail does not agree with me, because that's what it essetially was, if I understand your interpretation right and if Sarah feels in your story the way she feels, because I do not feel ANY partiality on her behalf (when she is by her senses) in relation to Jareth. And her under Jareth's spell and in her right mind are totally disconnected.
That is what bothers me - Sarah's abrupt plunge in sheer terror (at least that is what I get from your description), when she meets Jareth for the first time.

So, this is the second or third time I am reading this and I finally, listened to the song. That song is creepy as hell, and now I am seriously feeling anxiety knowing what is going to happen.
Other readers, if you have not listened to it. Google it. It will change your reading experience.

Hello, I'm not sure if you are still active, but I just want to let you know that that was a stunning blend of etheral horror. I nearly didn't finish this story because the initial chapters left me confused and I quit the story only to come back a year later and I'm glad I did. Are you going to continue it or give more?

...wow is all I can say. Just wow
| babyvfan chapter 14 . 10/5/2015
How damn is all I can say
| babyvfan chapter 13 . 10/5/2015
I know I said it before but I really need to say it again. HOT DAMN. You mean Jareth basically killed Sarah (with her giving herself to him) and now she won't remember anything when she wakes up?
