My goodness was this a great story! It was complex and offered a whole new view into the Underground and Fae culture.
I do wonder when Jareth began to love Sarah. Did he simply target her years ago because she had the potential to become an anchor? He may have only been complying to her wish, but I doubt he had to personally oversee her progress the way he did.
I find Sarah to be very clever to keep up with Jareth and his machinations. I suppose reading and writing stories about Fae helped a lot; one has to understand the source material in order to properly represent it. Jareth was also very well portrayed; powerful and arrogant and domineering. He didn't lose any of that even when he admitted his lover for Sarah.

Thank you for an wonderful, romantic, fascinating, humorous and brilliant story! It was so much fun reading, I'm so glad I found this gem. You did a great job, Jareth and Sarah are very well carved out. Keep on writing, I'd love to read more. :)

This was so beautifully written. My heart aches with equal parts joy and slight melancholy (joy in finding such a precious gem, and some small sorrow that it has come to an end). Without giving away any spoilers, I will say that you have an immense talent not only for writing, but capturing moments brimming with life, vivid imagery, creativity, and profound emotion—a true Tale-spinner yourself. Were I to critique anything, it would be the occasional missing commas and, at times, convoluted descriptions and transitions. That aside, the tale is marvelous and I am incredibly moved and inspired. I particularly loved how not every mystery was unraveled, nor every incident and expression explained. It lent an enigmatic quality that is wholly fitting for a tale of magic both terrifying and magnificent. The moments of comic relief, coupled with the "human element", were well crafted and much appreciated. You should seriously consider fine-tuning your remarkable gift and continue writing in more professional terms. That aside, I wish you the best in all you pursue, and I thank you for sharing such a marvelous tale. — Alex

You are an amazing wonderful person. This is one of the few stories that hasn't left me with a sense of great loss when I finished it. It gives me hope for my dreams and fills me with joy. I am going to share it with a friend of mine who needs some magic and love in her life. Thank you so much. You have truly done a great thing with this story. Please, keep writing and sharing your gift!
P.S. I got here from Paisley Rose's page.

Oh, this was excellent! I'm glad you have it posted here in its entirety. I started reading it on AO3 and was sorely disappointed that it was unfinished there. Wonderful story, excellent characterizations and beautiful imagery! I loved it from start to finish!

You, dear lady, have seriously sent my emotions through the ringer with this. Holy cow. Holy cow. I have really loved this tale. Pure awesomeness. It's been a while since I've stumbled over a story I wasn't happy to just read at leisure, to put down and pick up whenever the mood struck. This was one of those that I had to finish, NOW. Had to force myself not to speed read in effort to hurry up and find out what happened next, but to instead take my time to savor it. This one is one of those to be printed out and stored in the plastic sleeves...you know, in case the Internet ever breaks, I won't lose it forever? *hugs* Thank you.

Pshhht! If he offered to SHOW me, I'd be all, "Bedroom's this way!"

OMG! I was pretty slow on the uptake but I finally understand the "game" they're playing. That's very clever of you and I enjoy your story very much.

Excellent! I'm glad I found your wonderful story. I love your different approach of labyrinth. Truly, our imagination and dreams help the fantasy world flourish. Thank you for sharing your stories. :)

This has really been an excellent ride, with enough play and taunting, enough intrigue, to keep me hooked without making it spin into dark territory. Sarah's shifting impression of the Underground struck me as really realistic... and Laurel was a nice touch too.
I'm really looking forward to seeing more in this universe. I actually lost sleep over this story... which, as a writer, I think is always a compliment.
Thanks for the distraction from the mundane, and I hope to see more from you sometime.

| LivsMom chapter 25 . 8/21/2013
Sorry I didn't review until now. I eagerly wanted to see what would happen next. I absolutely love this! Your characters, storyline, imagery, logic. It was all beyond fabulous. Of course I had happy tears for the little wished-away that her life was good. Yay! I loved the banter and development between Jareth and Sarah, and occassional pov swap to keep it fresh. Thank you so much for sharing!
| Anisky chapter 12 . 8/4/2013
Okay, partway through the chapter I got seriously freaked out, as I have a character named Anann in a story I've been working on for almost nine years now, and while she's human, she's very pale and has so-light-it's-almost-white hair. Weird!
About what game was being played this chapter, I think I'm confused.
Enjoying this immensely!

If she's really that miserable, and has nearly a full scholarship, why doesn't Sarah just get a student loan (or a part time job) and cover the entirety of the expenses herself? Then her father wouldn't have (ahem) power over her.
Really enjoyed enjoyed this first chapter, on to #2!
