This story was lovely and so well-done. I truly enjoyed reading it!
| Honoria Granger chapter 25 . 3/7/2013
That is, beyond a solitary doubt, the best thing I have read in this or any other fandom. I stand by all my posts, and more, and more. Thank you profoundly. I shall reread often, with pleasure.

I'm not even waiting for the last chapter, and I hope you see this: If you are not already a professional fantasy writer, then what are you waiting for? Change the names and a few details, and you have yourself a fine original fantasy/psychological work here. I mean it, and I speak as a professional novelist myself. (I'm only reading fanfic because I love "Labyrinth"...and all too often it is a horrible chore: dull, badly written, teen-angst-foofy wish fulfillment crapola. This isn't. Really. Do something with this. Like Sarah.)
| Honoria Granger chapter 2 . 3/6/2013
I see that the story is complete, so at the end I shall be whining for more or sequels, most likely. But I just wanted to say now that with the more poorly written fics, or the ones written by children, I can skim over them like an ice skater. The good ones, and this is a VERY good one, I have to read to every word. And with yours, I'm happy to. Thanks again.
| Honoria Granger chapter 1 . 3/6/2013
This is delightful! I'm so glad to have discovered it. Your grammar, spelling and punctuation, so far, at least, is perfection. And the idea is clever and creative...thanks! I shall read through to the end...

This story was, in a word, amazing.
Usually, I hate it when people insinuate other Fae into Jareth and Sarah's lives. More specifically OTHER FREAKING FAE AND THEIR STUPID POLITICS AND SELF-IMPORTANCE where there is some Fae out to get Jareth's throne and somehow decides Sarah would make a really great bargaining chip/broodmare/weapon/loveslave. First, who wants to steal and rule over near-indestructible children who never grow up, really? Not to mention, the Fae in question is usually prejudiced against mortals, and he wants to usurp a throne whose responsibilities directly deals with them? Yeah, that makes alot of sense. Second, Sarah is gorgeous and awesome, yes, but can't the writers come up with SOMETHING more original?
I even dislike it when people put other mortals in, because they inevitably are some Mary Sue-ish character who serves no better purpose than to provide filler and some huge flash of wisdom (usually out-of-character for them, because the person is almost always air-headed).
Your story, on the other hand, did not fall prey to these cliche's, for which I am terribly grateful for, as it would have ruined an otherwise excellent plot.
Not since reading "As Easy Mayst Thou Fall" have I been so impressed and satisfied with a piece of Labyrinth fiction. Onto my favorites with you!

AWESOME, absolutely AWESOME! I'm SO glad to find more GOOD work in this fandom, which so easily descends into PWP and overindulged clothesporn. I will read the rest of your work now.

I'm struggling with two different Major choices as well- Mythology is one (well, Scandinavian, with a focus on the mythology? something like that) and Aerospace Engineering. I love my Scandinavian classes, and tookLatin for years and loved it, but know I can't make a living off the Scandinavian degree, so I haven't changed my major to it. Yet. I might.

Here I was, deciding that I was bored and wanted to read something about the lovely almost-was that is Labyrinth's Jareth and Sarah, and my first fic to read just happens to be this one. Usually I wait until I get to the end of a story before I comment, but I just had to put something down now.
My overall reactions were surprise, interest and delight: surprise, because so many fics that I've read captured the tone of the original story, but they rarely seem like a believable sequel. Your premise of Sarah growing up and going to college in writing fits perfectly (and to be honest, I was glad to see a protagonist that, according to my calculations, is my age (and NOT a teenager with teen-age drama; I get so, so tired of reading about that)). Interest came because of your writing style. I've read quite a few fics on here, and most are sad excuses for stories; even if the idea is good, it never rises to its potential because of the horrific grammar, despicable punctuation, and other unmentionables. Your style, I am very happy to say is very, very good. It made reading your story a joy and a pleasure because I was swept into the tale without having to mentally correct any mistakes that I happened to notice. And I am above all delighted! I was very curious to see how you would protray Jareth, who has a rather particular way of speaking and behaving, but all my fears vanished when he finally appeared. Major kudos to you for capturing him exactly as he was in the film - even the way he talks reminds me of him (and I can hear his voice in my head every time I hear him speak, ha).
I know you wrote this... I just checked, and it was about a year and a half ago... so you probably don't get many reviews on this story anymore. But it is never too late for a good review, I think, and so here's mine: I am really, really looking forward to reading the rest of this fic. It shows so much promise and I loved every second that I've spent so far reading this. You'll probably hear from me again, but for now, thank you.

I must say You have held me most captive and captivated for the last 2 weeks with this intensely gratifying, yet very detailed and waaay researched novelletta. Thru this story I have, laughed, cried, stood shocked, screamed agrily and lost all hope, and yet thru it all I was taken on such an amazing journey that I didn't need to worry that I wouldn't find my way back.
I cosplay Jareth the goblin king and I must say you truly show His Royal Nibs true colours but not with out allowing sarah to be just as amazing! btw Dragon Reine has truly captured the both of them in her artwork and I contacted her to build his outfit you have written about so many of his other outfits featured in here that I am undecided but phenominally inspired to build them well definately the one from solstice. May I build some of his outfits featured in here I promise to give you both credit, as you and her thru the artwork have inspired me!
Thank you for writing and completing such wonderious tales, I am happily following you on both da and here. 3
with out wax,

I've just read it all again in one loop, and find it even more fantastic than the first time. It's true that it is easier to understand when one knows the all story, because I sometimes had trouble to understand it all at first, what with not knowing completly where it was going. Not that's it's really a problem, it's what made this story so addictive.
Anyway, I wanted to know a couple of things. Firstly, when Jareth revisited Sarah for the first time, she asked him to guess when she had the idea to write about magic, love and adventure, and how one would go to reach it...She answered his question about the labyrinth, but he never answered her. Will it be mentionned in the sequel ?
And the second question is just that : when will you start on this sequel ? It's already been about 1 year since this one was finished, and I'd like to know if you're about to start for the next one.
Well, keep the good work, and see you soon.

This was super awesome fantastic wonderful exhilarating thing I've read in a while! I love Sarah becoming a author and spreading her stories to the world after the connection broke. I also loved how she ended up with Jareth too and what it took to get them together!
| KW Jordan chapter 15 . 10/25/2012
I think they were both in the right. She acted as the best of her kind would when a child is afraid, and he acted as his kind would when a mortal is weak.
| KW Jordan chapter 14 . 10/25/2012
I think I might love Laurel. :)
| KW Jordan chapter 12 . 10/25/2012
I'll put it this way, I'm more into the lady-loving, but even I can admit that David Bowie's Jareth was delightfully, dangerously smexy, and you write him well. :)
