Fan fiction is up
Yay, Sarah and Jareth!
More art for ‘Of Nowhere and Neverwhen’. It's far from perfect, but I'm going to call it done. .____.;
I will start posting the story some day. But for now, here is an excerpt from the scene that goes with the picture. Because I’m generous.
“Goblin King, send your glowy light ball over here. I think I’ve found the way out.”
Jareth’s face was caught in a disdainful grimace, as though he couldn’t decide whether he was insulted or annoyed. Hmm. Probably insulted and annoyed. Serves him right,
she thought uncharitably. Sarah knew the crystal held far more dangerous potential than she had suggested, but at the moment it was doing little more than floating and glowing. It’s not my fault that he’s currently using it as a flashlight.
She tried again.
“Oh, great and powerful Goblin King, will you please send your Glowy Light Ball of Doom over here to aid the failing eyes of a frail mortal girl.”
After an apparent internal war, in which he likely weighed the pros and cons of cutting his losses and deserting one sarcastic mortal female and finding his own way out, Jareth stepped up behind her and directed the crystal ahead with a flourish. Once doing so, even he saw the brilliance in her solution.
“Clever girl,” he said wonderingly.
After days of constant tension, Sarah could not help the laughter that burst forth.
If he had said something like that to her a month prior, she might have taken the compliment in stride. As it happened though, Toby had nagged, begged, and pled for her to take him to see the dinosaur movie Karen was certain would give him nightmares. Sarah, of course, thought that was complete nonsense and purchased tickets for an opening day matinee. She was a wonderful big sister, truly.
Sarah had nearly laughed herself out until she glanced up and took in Jareth’s disgusted sneer. The thought that popped into her head was just too ridiculous, and she doubled over in mirth.
“I take it back,” Jareth announced, “You’re an addle-brained twit.”

Yes, that was a Jurassic Park reference. Don't look at me like that.
