Excellent start! Very much looking forward to the next part. VERY much. I love the dreams Sarah had. I'd love to know who inspired which dreams. Oh, Sarah's description of Jareth as looking "the rave-party offspring of Titania and Heathcliff on heroin mixed with crack" is great. Very funny. I'm at the library so I had to smother the urge to laugh.
Keep on writing in this fandom, dear. You're doing just fine.

I'm so glad you're writing a new story! I concur with Imbrium about the whiskey-drinking. I also like when she swears. And thanks for the reference. Imma gonna update my story soon. I hope. I wrote the next chapter and then decided that I didn't like something about it, but changing it means rewriting the rest of the chapter, which is a real pain. But I will finish it, damn it.

Fabulous stuff! I really, really enjoyed it. I'm really impressed you have the patience to write down all the mindless, dull, snips of conversation that help make things like this feel real, and not only do you do that, you make them funny as well.
As others have said, there is a fair lot of darkness in here too and I think it would be safe to say that whilst Jareth's busy messing with Sarah's head, your story's busy messing with mine. I alternate between snorts of laughter and moments of 'okay ... that's creepy ...' you'll probably be happy to know that it's more of the former though.
Thank-you muchly for the reference, I felt all 'eek it's my story!' and that got over it and was instantly dissapointed to see there were only a few sentences left.
Anyway, great story and I am really looking forward to the next chapter- I can't wait to discover what's going to happen when Sarah and Jareth come 'head-to-head' so to speak!

I like it.
| Nanenna chapter 1 . 1/6/2008
Oh, this was an interesting start to a fic. I think I'll keep reading.
| Scarbantia chapter 1 . 1/6/2008
That sounds interesting. Ok, killing poor, innocent Merlin was mean, but the rest was excellent. More, please!
| thetankgirl chapter 1 . 1/6/2008
Very nice story!Please update soon!
| Andi-Scribbles chapter 1 . 1/6/2008
AH, YEAH! Another Subtilior fic. Lovely-just what I needed.
I fully expect our Sarah to be fleshed as ever, our Jareth to be evil and SEXY as ever, and our plot to be as gripping as the others you've woven.
No pressure, though ;)
Anyway, I'm putting this on my alerts :) Can't wait for the next part!

This chapter is very interesting. Can we have more interesting chapters please. Keep smiling all the day long, and all through the night, with a song in you heart. :-)
| Madamoiselle La Lune chapter 1 . 1/6/2008
haha! This is really amusing! I can't wait to read more!
| Imbrium chapter 1 . 1/6/2008
Yay! It is nice to see you back. My brief thoughts:
I like that, even when you are writing romance/comedy, there is still a touch of darkness to it.
I am also curious to see where (if anywhere) you are going with the missing socks.
I like that your Sarah is always a whiskey drinker - the scotch (yay!) in "In a Glass, Darkly," and now the bourbon.
It is nice to see the shout-out to "Heart is a Lonely Hunter."
(p.s. - Can I admit, it sounds as though Sarah is baking bread, not making a cake?)
I am looking forward, as always, to seeing where you take this.
| The Midnight Rain chapter 1 . 1/6/2008
Awesome! Please finish this!
I hope to see Sarah take that damn arrogant Jareth and show him what for.
Love your work, keep on going!

Good lord, I am in love with this story This is very different from what you normally write (I'm so bad, I didn't review!), but I really love it and you're doing a fabulous job. I actually loved out loud several times, especially the featherhead comment, and this one, "Jareth. Jar-eth. J-A-R-E-T-H - His Royal Majesty, King of the Fucking Goblins, who looks like the rave-party offspring of Titania and Heathcliff on heroin mixed with crack!" Seriously, joked on my Mountain Dew on that one. Toby singing was hilarious, I love that kid in this already. Sarah has remarkable patience, living in that chaotic house for any amount of Oh, and I must say, the image of Jareth lounging in his throne with his eyes rimmed in black is probably the best mental picture I've gotten all Okay, wrapping this up, I LOVE, and you have to update. I feel a new addiction coming on:)
