cu-kid chapter 7 . 8/10/2009
::peeks head out of closet:: I...yeah, you know, most of the time I know exactly what to say after chapters like this one. But I think every synapses responsible for essential motor functions like speech and cognizant thought just shorted out and melted...and I'm pretty sure my monitor caught on fire...

Because holy smokes that was HOT!

And then, at then end, you dunked me quite successfully into an icy bucket of suspicion, taking away every thrill I had received in the previous paragraphs, making a cold knot of apprehension clutch at my guts.

Now THAT is good writing!

Until next time ::returns to closet::
Lixxle chapter 7 . 8/9/2009
I've read this chapter over twenty times now (which, given the content, makes me *quite* the dirty little pervert), and it blows me away every time.

I love your smut; it is always so delicious, yet so *desperate* and no other writer in this fandom (or any other that I've frolicked around in) can portray that balance. You get the sense that Sarah and Jareth are in more danger from the intimacy of the act than from the beastie on the other side of the door and that really is a lovely thing to read.

I adored the fact that imminent death spurred them on to shag like teenage bunnies on Viagra rather than simply escape. I love the fact that in the midst of it all, Sarah has the presence of mind to notice Jareth's "lovely pants" (because they really are lovely). I did wonder whether Jareth managed to get some clothes on before Sarah opened the magic door, though I prefer to imagine him standing naked and glittery in the middle of the lounge room.

Given that I doubted Jareth throughout this tale (especially after that "knife and box" comment earlier), I've decided to believe that he didn't just ruthlessly shag Sarah for his own dastardly purposes, despite the fact that he sucks at post-coital conversation (waves "Team Jareth" banner).

To sum up: this chapter is rich in awesome. I bow to you, oh smut Queen...
Robyn Lee Swan chapter 7 . 7/23/2009
AH! What happened? It just ended... Okay, I know you haven't gotten more written or posted but please continue it. I absolutely loved what you've gotten done so far. Please continue to work on the story.
Tiff chapter 7 . 7/21/2009
This is def one the best Labyrinth stories out there!
phantome101 chapter 7 . 7/21/2009
In all honesty, it was a bit hilarious to see the way they were scrambling to get 'the deed' over and done with... Did Jareth really plan on using Sarah or was he really in love with her...
Mirra Mirra chapter 7 . 7/12/2009
Well, I'm so utterly pissed off at your Jareth right now I can't friggen breath. I think I may be going into shock... I mean, I can't even think straight and I'm so utterly angry and frustrated that I didn't get my corny 'happily ever after' or fulfilling ending. Seriously? I feel like bashing my head a few times to ease the need for a 'nice' Jareth.

You've done a great job at characterizations. Generally, I'm not a fan of 'bad Jareth' to the point that he manipulates Sarah, but you've made it so that I'm hooked by throwing me for a complete loop. It's disturbing really. I'm faced with the one thing I can't stand-Jareth being totally and utterly cruel, and taking control away from Sarah, which always pisses me off-but the story is so well written that I can't look away.

So... congratulations. I'm now so obsessive that if there isn't an update, I may go nuts. Now you have to write the next chapter, because my sanity depends on it. If I'm admitted to psyche ward, won't you just feel terribly guilty?

P.S. The scene where Jareth 'explodes' made me laugh so hard I almost wet myself. After that line, all I could think of were scenes from Monty Python and The Muppets.

So glad you decided to keep writing on this. I can't wait to see how it turns out.
Fabricated Revolution chapter 7 . 7/4/2009
Want to review.

Incapable of coherent thought; ability to breathe.

Must update.
BarnOwlJareth chapter 7 . 7/3/2009
Whoo! Quite the delay, but WHAT a chapter!

"Sarah was tugging at the fastenings to his lovely pants with total, mindless want."

I love that in the midst of mindless want, she's still capable of registering that they're lovely. To be fair, I suppose, they are *Jareth's* pants. Ridiculously tight and indecent and all that... ;)
Dalbert Whitworth chapter 7 . 7/3/2009
I had almost (almost) stopped checking for updates, but like all good fan girls a little bit of me would not lose hope... and as always you delivered in spectacular style. A fantastic chapter in what is slowly becoming a sublime story. Well done.

You write each character so well, there temperaments are as I had always imagined. Sarah should love him and he will use that to his own gain whilst still caring very deeply for her, that is how arrogant selfish people work.

Wow.

Just wow. Words fail.

I really thought that I had reviewed this story before, but somehow there was a gross oversight on my part.

I love the strength you have given your Sarah and the mystery you have given your GK. The plot is spectactularly intriguing and the tension palpable. Your prose was as fine as gossamer in some parts.

And the smut scene - well, wow. Just wow.

Everything was just lovely. I look forward to the next chapter!

Cheers,

Vic Wit

*fans self* Wow, hot.

Welcome back, I'm glad you didn't abandon this.
Marumae chapter 1 . 6/28/2009
It's been forever since I've read a Labyrinth fanfiction and the summary of this caught my eye. I'm pleasantly surprised at how tightly and well written it is and Sarah's not acting like the epitome of a five year old, which I notice with a lot of fics-especially considering in most of them she's SUPPOSED to be an adult. I'm definitely going to check out more. Awesome job so far.
ephemerae chapter 1 . 6/27/2009
This was a marvellous opening. I'm a pretty tentative fic reader, doubly so when something's incomplete, and especially when the rating sits high - but I've been swept into this one completely by the end of the first paragraph. It wouldn't matter if I didn't already know and love the characters.

I'll try and get more regular about reviewing, but I figured at this rate as it's unfinished I'd just drop a note as vague encouragement and proof of another set of eyes, and selected this chapter simply because it was so enthralling. You've plunged us into a very particular view of what-happened-after, with her keys and wards and the brilliant idea of the mural, and some lovely bits of description and commentary. It's wonderful to see such good action (and command of fairy tales and general lore) in combination with solid writing technique. Characterization is plausible and appealing (by which I mean the characterization, not necessarily the characters, are likable. Jareth just wouldn't be Jareth if he weren't somewhat unpleasant. I adore the bit about the cream despite agreeing with S. Excellent on so many levels.)

I don't really know if this is the right space and I don't intend to come off as grammar police, but you've got "affect" instead of "effect" here and there.

Glad to see you're still working at it - a discontinued story is a maddening, miserable thing - and it's far too good a beginning to waste. Take heart, don't be embarrassed (heck, you've taken the plunge already, and you came out with a solid story everyone's enjoying.) Good luck and may the right words come easily.
