I know life has its funny way of getting in the way but this one of the Best Labyrinth fics I've read! I would love to read/know what happens next.

I'm really enjoying this story so far. It walks a nice line between fluffycute and dire.
This story definitely falls into a specific subgenre of Labyrinth fanfiction. I'm not sure precisely how to label it other than "Sarah uncertainly marries Jareth and moves to the Underground for graduate courses in Queenship and Love-and other Fae show up as rivals and love interests." That's rather a big label. There isn't particularly anything "new" to your story, but I find myself interested anyway. Perhaps it's because your writing is very, very strong when it comes to Sarah and Jareth one-on-one. I get this feeling that you really understand the uncertainty in that relationship, the tentative steps toward friendship and love, the possibilities of having more than a marriage of convenience.
Normally I don't care for this genre, because it's been done a lot. Or maybe it's because I've got an appetite for the cynical and the cruel, and I'm afraid of losing myself to the Lure of Cute. But something about this story is very sweetly compelling. If it were a TV show, I'd be watching it every week. If it were on Netflix, I'd eat it in two huge sittings. As it is, I'm working my way through pretty carefully and enjoying it.
And the more you write, the better your writing gets. The word choices and the sentence structures-the way you point around the reader's eye to what you want them to see-gets surer and more adept. Your reliance on cliches and cut-and-paste adjective phrases seems to decrease, and instead you're writing what you see-and letting us see it too. That's talent, and I love to see it coupled with skill and dedication, which you also demonstrate. I'll be keeping my eye on this story and your other stories.

I love this story. I do, I love it. I'm fairly new to the fan fiction site (I discovered it because of my love for Dragon Age) but imagine my surprise and joy when there was so much else on this site than just DA. Anyway, I digress. This story has me captivated and I hurried through it very quickly, so now I will give you an extra semi-long review to make up for not reviewing until now.
Let me just start off by saying I don't know why people were hating on this story so much when you first began. I find it compelling and full of intrigue, even if you didn't (and maybe still don't) know where the story was heading. Maybe it's because I've read so many other fics before I found the Labyrinth stories, but for me (at least) plot build up is much more exciting than plot vomit in chapter one. What's the point of reading the rest of the story, if you already know what's going to happen?
I also love that even though he has lived for more than 4 centuries, Jareth is still a bit clueless when it comes to some of the important (pesky) emotions, i.e. love, compassion, etc. To watch him journey through the story, beginning to realize his folly in insisting he didn't love Sarah, has been absolutely wonderful. It really gives what could be a very flawless character an interesting, almost fatal, flaw. As for Sarah, you have her aging nicely with still a few of her own character flaws rearing their head occasionally, making her so believable. Though the fact that Jareth just hadn't realized how much she really sacrificed to marry him, makes me want to knock him over the head with one of his precious books, powerful Fae or not. Tee hee.
Valentine...oh Valentine. I love to hate her. *sniggers* She makes a good plot snag, giving Sarah some angsty ammunition. Poor girl, thinking her husband doesn't love her, only loves the babe growing within her but you make it work beautifully. Though I do have to admit, that I picture her as this slightly plump blob...just because I hate her, I know she's not actually fat. I just can't wait for when she finally realizes that Jareth doesn't love her (and maybe never really did). She's already getting an inkling when Jareth discovered her in the closet in Sarah's clothes and then said Sarah's name. Best moment, EVER! Though I did find myself curious why she didn't call him on it...pride I guess.
Anyway, I could continue to wax poetic about this story, but I'll leave you be so you can get back to writing the next chapter. ;-) Toodles, and I can't wait to read more (but don't feel rushed on my account).
