This just…came upon me as mom and I were watching Elizabeth (the Cate Blanchett version). I honestly have no idea where it came from. I guess Jareth had ideas of his own.

…What else is new?

Disclaimer: Not mine. If it was, Jareth would be indefinitely locked in my closet (yeah, 'cause THAT'D work).

The movie kept playing as Sarah stepped into the bathroom. Grabbing her toothbrush, she murmured along with the red-headed actress in the other room.

"When I am queen…"

"Finally coming to your senses, precious?"

The toothpaste squirted onto the counter as her hand clenched. The blonde behind her smirked at her through the mirror as he stepped out of the bathtub. She looked back down at the sink, wiping the excess toothpaste from the counter with her hand and washing it off under the faucet. The movie's soundtrack filled the silence.


"What, Jareth?" She glared at him in the mirror, and he sighed.

"Precious Sarah. Whatever will I do with you?" His breath tickled the back of her neck, and she stuck the toothbrush into her mouth, scrubbing her teeth vigorously.

Jareth chuckled.

"One day, Sarah. You'll see."

He raised his hand to the mirror, and Sarah paused, staring at his palm pressed against the glass.

…His palm?

But that would mean…

Sarah whipped around, toothbrush wobbling comically, and she stared at the empty bathroom behind her.

Turning back, Mirror-Jareth was gone as well.

She returned to her scrubbing, hoping the noise would drown out Jareth's parting laugh.
