Story Summaries for Labyrinth Stories: Let there be much J/S Fluff!!!

2. Baby It's Cold Outside: my second finished one. A holiday-themed one for Christmas and Thanksgiving. Started Dec 2011, finished May 2012.

3. Trick, or Treat: More Halloween-themed fluff. Should have been a one-shot, but it's not, so it's a two-shot. Started and finished Oct 2012.

4. Another Valentine's Day: More Valentine's Day-themed fluff. A two-shot because I'm verbose. Started and finished Feb 2013.

5. How to Woo Properly: Writing now. Based on a one-shot/drabble by Kyndsie. Link included in story. Another way in which Jareth might have tried to win Sarah. Outline and two hours of voice-recorded notes done, just need to write it. Started Sept 2012.

6. Sarah and Laws of Queendom: on hiatus until Spring 2014. Sequel to Sarah and the Laws of Physics. Next story to finish after HTWP. Started July 2011.

7. Arrogance and Animosity: on hiatus until Spring 2014. Labyrinth meets Pride and Prejudice (and some Shakespeare), so excited to do it. Started June 2011.

8. Letters from a Mutual Friend: is the letters sent between Sarah's three friends, Sarah, and Jareth, after Sarah starts college. This story will have short chapters, but there will be many to make up for it. This story will be lengthy as a result, covering all of Sarah's years in college. Started July 2013.

9. Rain: Friend or Foe? Fluffy one-shot about Sarah getting stuck in the rain, and then gets visited by Jareth. Warning, is very, very, fluffy and cute!

10. Under the Stars: Versions 1 & 2: Fluffy stories (one-shots) about Jareth and Sarah being together under the stars.

11: Love and Other Drugs: One-shot: what if Jareth drank coffee? Much hilarity follows.

12. Sarah's Greatest Affair: Birthday giftfic. Sarah loves Jareth, but does she have all her priorities in order?

13. Other holiday one-shots: Thankful, Call Me Maybe, The Goblin Dance, Christmas Songs Underground, Precious Jewels, Mistletoe Mischief

14. Hide and Seek: short future story, with focus on goblins I have created. The goblins decide to hide from Jareth by staying with Sarah. Only good things can come of that. Will always be J/S!

15. Songfic of Billy Joel: still needs title. A short future story, showing how good Jareth is at creating mischief. Sarah may have grown-up, but it doesn't mean she can't have a little fun now and then.

16. Beautiful: A short future story. Sarah deals with guilt after running the Labyrinth, and it gets to her. Toby makes a wish that she could be happier, and Jareth answers.

17. Of Love and Dreams: a future story, romance novel spoof I've always wanted to write. More J/S, with some Toby and Sarah goodness. Haven't decided if drama or comedy. Sarah needs inspiration for her romance novels, and so has Toby help her visit the Goblin King by wishing her away. Nothing wrong with that plan at all.

18. FAR FUTURE: The Goblin Ball: it involves much dancing, and even more poetry. More scared of the poetry honestly. Could be drama or comedy.

19. More holiday fluff, because let's face it, I love fluff, and writing it. That or song-fics if so inspired along the way of writing. Anything could happen!

Non J/S:
This list is slowly growing, actually.

 Kyoya Ootori had much to be proud of. 

He was a successful businessman.  He had followed his own path, while still following familial duties.  He was married and had three children of his own.  He was feared by all, save certain individuals who loved him dearly.  He was proud that he made everything happen in his life, except for one thing: his happy marriage. 

That he owed entirely to his friends in the Host Club. 

It had all happened when he was in his last year at Ouran Academy, getting ready to go off to college.  He and Tamaki had made all their plans, and all was set to go.  Since Tamaki and Haruhi had broken up a few months before because they were incompatible, Tamaki spent more time around Kyoya. 

Naturally, with Kyoya’s birthday around the corner, Tamaki wanted to do something for his best friend.  Kyoya had been more moody of late, preparing for college and watching as his brothers found love despite the plans that had been made.  Tamaki was not sure who would be good enough for his best friend, but from what he heard from Haruhi, she had an idea of who he was interested in.  How Haruhi knew, Tamaki was unsure, but Haruhi could see through everyone, so he assumed that it had something to do with that. 

It was one day after hosting, and Hunny and Mori were present.  Kyoya had left for home, as his father required his presence at home.  Haruhi was cleaning something in the kitchen when Tamaki broached the subject.

“Guys! We need to do something for Kyo’s birthday! How do we want to surprise him this year?”

“Let’s not wake him up, alright, Tono? That was a terrible idea! I still can’t believe you convinced us that he would like that.”

“He enjoyed the place we picked out.”

“Yeah, Tama-chan, but he didn’t like being woken up so early.”

“It wasn’t that early!” Tamaki protested.

“On your birthday?” questioned Mori.

“Well…maybe because of that.  But that’s beside the point! We need to do something for Kyo!”

“Like what? I don’t think he likes surprises.”

“We just have to package it the right way, and he will love-“

It was at that moment that Tamaki got an idea.  Everyone could tell, because the grin on his face made him glow brighter than new bulbs in car headlights.

“That’s it! We’ll send him a package!”

“That’s it? That’s kind of boring, especially for you,” said Hikaru.

“Yeah, if we’re going to do that, let’s at least put something interesting in the package so that he’s forced to open it,” added Kaoru.

Hikaru snickered before he continued.  “I got an idea.”

The twins looked at one another before facing the group, evil grins on their faces.

“We should put one of us inside.  Specially packaged.  With some other small thing with it.”

The twins were about to suggest putting their blond leader inside, until Tamaki interrupted them with his own idea.

“That’s perfect! And we can put Haruhi in there!”

Tamaki’s brain was running slower than his mouth, but somehow he managed to stop himself before blurting out his reason for putting Haruhi in there, to encourage Kyoya to open up, whether to her or himself. 

“That’s a great idea, Tama-chan! But what to give Haruhi?”

Hunny smiled with glee at the thought of Haruhi being hand-delivered to Kyoya’s doorstep.  Kyoya might think it weird at first, but he would later see it as romantic.  Hunny and Mori both had known for some time that Kyoya was interested in Haruhi, so this would be the perfect way to force them into close proximity.  They just needed something to spark up a conversation.

Everyone talked at once as they tried to think of something for Haruhi to give Kyoya, while Haruhi was blissfully unaware of their discussions, quite lost in cleaning the tea cups.  Finally, Mori stood up.

“A vase.”

The twins heard Mori, and they ran with the idea.  They knew just the perfect vase for Haruhi, too.

“We can get one for her no problem.  She can return it to its proper owner after all this time.  Let’s do it!”

“And we should celebrate Kyo-chan’s birthday next time during hosting hours.  The girls would like it.  I’ll bring some cake,” added Hunny.

“And we’ll find decorations for the party, and decorate Haruhi.  It’ll be our pleasure,” said the twins in stereo.

Tamaki was glad that everyone liked the idea of wrapping and sending Haruhi, but he did not like the fact that the twins would be the only ones taking care of her.  He sputtered like a dying car for several moments until Mori spoke again, saying that he and his cousin wanted to help.  Tamaki was quick to gain color and join in with the wrapping. 

It was at that moment that Haruhi finished cleaning the dishes and walked in on the hosts.  She did not like what she saw, between the twins’ smirks, Hunny clapping his hands, and Tamaki looking expectantly at her.  Mori looked stoic as always, but the way that he seemed to be standing between her and the rest of the hosts worried her a little.

“What’s going on, guys?”

“We’re just planning out Kyo-chan’s gift.  You want to help?”

“Of course I do!”

“Great! We’ll let you know when we need the help.”

Haruhi left after that so that she could go home and make dinner for her father.  She did not know what she had just agreed to, but she had learned with time that sometimes it was just better to go along with it.  In hindsight, she would later decide that it was better not to be told, as she might not have agreed to. 

Sure, she liked Kyoya for his friendship, good looks, and caring heart (at least for his friends), but she did not want to tell him how she felt, since she was unsure how he would react.  She was sure he liked someone, but she did not know who.

Kyoya’s birthday that year ended up being on a day when they did not go to school.  As a result, Haruhi awoke to many loud knocks before she came to the door.  When she opened the door, the twins appeared, packages in hand.  The rest of the hosts were behind, except for Kyoya.  She knew it was his birthday, so she did not expect to see him all day.

“Haruhi, put this on! Quickly! We haven’t got much time!”

Haruhi headed to the bathroom and started to put on all the lacy, pink clothes she found in the box.  She did not like it.

“What is all this?”

“It’s for Kyoya’s birthday present.  We want to surprise him.”

“How?” she asked, cringing as she looked at the salmon pink stockings and matching flats. 

“We’re going to hand-deliver it to his house.”

“Are we all dressing up?”

“Nope, not right now.”

“So why can’t I just go in my normal clothes?”

At this point, Haruhi was dressed so she got out of the bathroom, a little miffed at being forced to do this.

“Because Kyo likes you in pink.  And you’re part of the present.”

“Wait, what? What is going on? What did I agree to?”

“We can’t all go and surprise him, because Kyoya-senpai doesn’t like big surprises like that.  That’s why we’ll have you do it.  He’ll be way too surprised that you actually came, so he’ll allow it.  And then you can give him our gift to him,” said Kaoru.

“And what’s that?” Haruhi asked with trepidation.

“This vase,” said Hikaru with much satisfaction as he brought it from behind his back.

Haruhi stared at the vase, an exact replica of the one that she had broken that first day in the Host Club.  Nope.  Not happening.

“You’ve got to be kidding me.  I’m not doing this.”

“Too late! We already have a custom-made box, and it only fits you inside! It’s time to go inside, Haruhi!”

Haruhi was unceremoniously pushed into the large box outside her apartment, with large amounts of pink stuffing and paper inside the box, and even brighter wrapping on the outside.  This was just a little ridiculous.  She was just glad that she had remembered to grab her gift for Kyoya while in her bedroom, that it was small enough to be carried.

Before she knew it, Haruhi was transported to Kyoya’s mansion, where the Hosts left her in the servants’ possession, with strict instructions that their master received the gift as soon as possible, for the contents required immediate opening.

Kyoya was awake and sitting up in bed, enjoying some peaceful moments alone in his room.  He had gotten up early, on the off-chance that Tamaki pulled a similar stunt to the year before by surprising him. 

He had mentally prepared himself for something, but it was not the bright pink satin box that was placed in his room.  The servants said that it was from his friends, and that he had to open it immediately.  He did not like being forced to do anything, especially since it was his birthday and the package did not suit him at all.  Knowing his friends, it was probably the twins’ doing.

With such thoughts to occupy his mind, Kyoya opened up the package to the best of his ability.  It was very tall and thin.  When he got rid of all the wrapping, he thought he heard movement inside the box.  His first thought was that Tamaki had decided to give him a dog, just like Antoinette.  Hopefully not.

Kyoya had a good surprise when he started to remove the tissue paper and suddenly all fell down, leaving a shyly smiling Haruhi.  The dress was perfect for her, and the vase she held made him smile.

“Happy birthday, Kyoya-senpai! Happy birthday from all your friends, including me.”

“Thanks, Haruhi.”

Kyoya put out his hand, and Haruhi took it.  They then went and sat on the couch in his room. 

Kyoya was unsure how this turn of events came to be, but he was glad.  He had not spent much time around Haruhi of late, and he missed her common sense approach to things and life.  He also missed her presence in general.  He wanted to date her, and had for some time.  But, he was about to graduate and go to college, and it would be difficult for them to maintain a relationship, especially once Haruhi started law school.  No, it was better to remain friends.  But fate laughed and had other ideas.

“How did you get roped into this, Haruhi?”

“I’m still not sure, to be honest.  One day after you left, the guys were talking, and when I came out, they told me they had the perfect gift idea for you.  Next thing I know, they appear on my doorstep with lots of pink, telling me I’m your gift.  I blame Tamaki-senpai.”

Kyoya chuckled at that last sentence before becoming quiet again.  For whatever reason, his friends had decided to give him Haruhi.  Why? Had Hunny and Mori something to do with this?

“You probably should blame him.  You know how ridiculous his ideas are.”

“Yes, but it was the twins who ran with it.  I knew I should not trust the evil grins they were wearing when I agreed.”

Haruhi shook her head at the memory, while Kyoya smiled as he imagined the evil grins of the twins.

“Will you ever learn not to agree?”

“Probably not.  It’s always worked out in the past, and there’s no reason it won’t now.  What are your plans for today?”

Both got comfortable on the couch, as Haruhi found that the couch looked expensive, but was in fact very soft and comfortable.  She could get used to this sensation of being held in the warm leather.

“Nothing special.  Lounge around.  Have lunch with my sister.  Then have dinner with my family as always, every night.”

“That’s it?” said Haruhi with surprise.

“That’s it.  We don’t do much for birthdays here,” said Kyoya with a shrug.

“Oh.  I expected something, especially since you can afford it.”

“No, that is not our way.”

“I suppose not.”

Haruhi looked down, which Kyoya did not like.  He liked looking into her large eyes.

“But I’m glad you’re here.”

That made her head come back up, with a big smile to match.  It put Kyoya at ease.

“Thanks, Kyoya-senpai.  I’m glad to be here, too.”

Both smiled at one another for several moments before Haruhi continued talking.

“But don’t you want to celebrate your birthday in a bigger way? You have us.”

“I do, but I don’t want you to go through all that for me.  As it is, I’m sure there’s a party being planned for me come hosting time.”

“I’m pretty sure, yes.  That’s what it sounded like.”

“And that’s more than enough for me.  I don’t expect much else.”

“Why not? If I’m celebrating, I want to be surrounded by those I care about, and those who care about me.”

Haruhi was earnest in her curiosity, and the equally earnest answer she got surprised them both.

“I have that now.”

Haruhi looked into Kyoya’s eyes, while Kyoya did his best to hide behind his glasses.  He had not meant to say those words exactly, but what’s said is said.  It was true.  He cared about his friends, but the one person he really cared about was already in front of him.  He did not require anything else. 

Finally, Haruhi spoke, probing and trying to make sense of his answer.

“Then can I stay for a little while? To celebrate in a smaller way with you?”

“Of course.  I’d like it if you stayed, as long as you can.”

“I’ve got all day.  I finished all my homework last night, and I’m glad I did now.”

“Good, so did I.  Have you ever been here before? If not, then I’d like to show you around.  I think there are a few things you could appreciate.”

“I’d like that.  And then maybe we can find some ice cream?”

“Before lunch?”

“Well, I don’t want to come between you and your sister’s alone time.”

“Oh, don’t worry about that.  She’d like to get to know you more, so it’s better this way.  We can get ice cream after lunch.”

“Alright, birthday boy.  Whatever you want.”

And the rest of the day was enjoyable.  He had the servants put the fake vase somewhere in his room, before taking Haruhi on a tour of his home.  After that, his sister appeared, and they enjoyed a meal out, with lots of fancy tuna and ice cream to celebrate.

When it was time for Haruhi to leave, Kyoya was reluctant to let her go.  He did not want her to leave him, and have to go through the family dinner alone.  What he really wanted was to have dinner alone with her, spending even more time talking about all the things they shared in common.

“Kyoya-senpai, before I go, I wanted to give you something else.”

Those words got Kyoya out of his errant thoughts and onto the serious look on Haruhi’s face as she pulled out a small box from her dress.  It had a ribbon tied around it, and after he removed it, he opened the box to find a set of pens, all engraved with his name.

“I’m sure you have lots of pens, but I’ve never seen one with your name on it.  I thought it would be nice, to use with your notebook.”

“A very practical, thoughtful gift.  Thank you, Haruhi.”

It was at moments like this that Kyoya really wanted to confess his feelings for Haruhi and ask her out.  He had been resigned to not do so, and this was a limited time opportunity to change his path and mind.  Should he do it?

While Kyoya decided what to do, he relieved some of the feelings he felt by reaching out for Haruhi’s hand and squeezing it.  It was not much, but that small amount of pressure was able to communicate what he needed.  Haruhi stared at his hand until she started to feel warm, and she realized she was blushing.  She tried to pull her hand away, but Kyoya had seen the blush.  It was the catalyst he needed.  He was not going to let her go so easily, after all.

“I really do appreciate it, Haruhi.  I wanted you to know that.  You’ve made the last two years different, and for the better.  I’m glad to call you my friend.”

Haruhi’s heart had started to beat faster when he would not let go of her hand.  It slowed down when he mentioned them being friends, deflating her just a little.

“I’m glad you’re my friend as well.  I think there’s a lot more to you than most realize.”

“And you keep pushing me to do better.”

“I know you do the same for me, in that way that only you can.”

“Because I care about you.”

Right before he spoke, Kyoya removed his glasses.  After he spoke, their eyes locked onto one another, all questions being exchanged freely.

“I care about you, too, Kyoya-senpai.”

That did not satisfy Kyoya.  He had made the jump, and now he had to finish.

“But not just as a friend.  I want more.”

Another long pause came and passed.  Kyoya could feel the excitement between them, as his pulse was not the only one now jumping around erratically.

“More? How much more?”

“As much as you’re willing, Haruhi.  I’ve had feelings for you for a year now, but I didn’t want to say anything at first because of Tamaki.  It’s different now.  I want to date you, Haruhi.  Would you consider going out with me?”

Haruhi smiled up at Kyoya before answering.

“I’d love to go out with you.  I have feelings for you, too.  I was hoping you would say something.”

“But I’m about to graduate.”

“So? Do you doubt your ability to check on me from a distance?”

Kyoya crinkled his nose before answering.  “Of course not.”

“Then we have nothing to worry about.  We’ll make it work.  One day at a time.”

“Yes.  One step at a time.”

“Besides, there’s lots of time before you graduate.  Let’s worry about the here and now, and us.  Let’s enjoy our time together.”

“I fully intend to.”

By then, it was almost time for dinner to start, so Kyoya walked Haruhi to the door, making promises that he would call her later, and visit her dad tomorrow. 

“Haruhi, can I ask for one last thing?”

“Sure,” she said with a smile.

 

 “It’s something I’ve wanted to do since that night in Okinawa.  Kiss you.”

Kyoya leaned in, and Haruhi leaned in as well.  They shared two kisses.  The first was chaste and short.  The second was neither of those things, as it spoke of a year’s worth of pent-up emotions all being put into that one moment, and Haruhi loved it.  When they finally broke apart for air, both were smiling.

“Good-bye, Kyoya-senpai.  I look forward to talking to you later.  Happy birthday.”

“It’s much happier now.”

Kyoya continued to stare at the lady in pink as she walked away into one of his family’s limos.  Dinner could not come soon enough.  And when he did talk to her again, both were glad to be talking, and decided to tell their friends at school. 

Many people wondered that next day why Kyoya was smiling.  The Hosts did, too, until the good news was told.  Then, they all smiled.  Even though it dashed the romantic hopes of others, everyone could see how happy both of them were to be dating.  The happy couple was allowed to host together that day, after everyone was brought in and sang to Kyoya.  Tamaki gave his famous soul-crushing hug to Kyoya, who put up with it far better that day than most, knowing that Tamaki was part of the reason he was so happy right now.

Naturally, when the couple broke the news to Ranka, he was even more excited than all of the hosts combined.  He jumped and clapped, and he was a literal ray of sunshine for the rest of the night, as he insisted Kyoya stay for dinner. 

In the years that would follow, Haruhi and Kyoya would grow closer.  Eventually, they would both graduate from college with a job.  After that, they also got married.  For that, however, Kyoya made sure to have the hosts gift-wrap him for Haruhi when he proposed.  

After that, much joking was shared between the hosts, as there were some who thought that they should gift-wrap Haruhi and Kyoya’s children once they were born, or at least just randomly appear at Haruhi’s work and kidnap her so that she could get wrapped up again.  Thankfully, Haruhi was able to convince them not to. 

Kyoya loved his children, but he loved his wife most.  He did not need a birthday to tell her how much he loved her, even when she appeared each year on his birthday, with some small gift, despite his assurances that she was the only gift he needed.

 It only became more of an event when their kids would follow their mother, and each would have some small item for their father.  Then, he would take the child into his lap, have the kid help him open it, and then he thanked them.  He patted his sons on the head, and kissed his daughter on the forehead.  His wife always got a kiss.  Kyoya made it a habit to try to time it every year so that he kissed Haruhi at the exact time that he kissed her all those years ago, and Haruhi never complained.     

And ever since that day, Kyoya said that his favorite gift had come in pink.  Bright, pastel, pink.  Haruhi never wore pink, except on his birthday.  And both were very glad to have friends who had wild ideas and who cared about them so much, as they were the reason that they were together.

His Favorite Gift
Author’s Disclaimer: No, I don’t own OHSHC.  All rights go to their respective owners.  It was Kyoya’s birthday recently, and in honor of him, KyoyaHaruhi  wanted to do a birthday bash event in honor of him.  Happy belated birthday, Kyoya!!! Here’s my fluffy one-shot contribution.  Many wishes for happiness, especially with Haruhi.  It’s a silly idea, and very fluffy.  It was a very last minute idea, but I think it works.  Also, for those in the US, Happy Thanksgiving! Much love and well-wishes for safe travels and good times with those you care about. I’m looking forward to it very much.   I hope you enjoyed this story! :D

Epilogue: The Next Few Years

 “Haruhi, have you any objections to getting married in about six months?”

“With the amount of help my Dad has already promised, and with your resources, I’m sure it’s doable.  Any sooner might seem to imply something, but I don’t want to wait much longer, either.”

“Good.  We’ve got a venue for the wedding, a few hours away.”

“Why so far?”

“Because it’s the largest hotel in the country, and my father already arranged it for us.”

“Oh,” said Haruhi, looking uneasily at her fiancé, “I didn’t expect him to do anything like that for us.”

“Nor did I.  He doesn’t always help out to such a degree with wedding plans, but he seems more willing to do so because it’s you.”

“Why me?”

“Because he respects you.”

Haruhi was honored by the attention from her future father-in-law, and she left it at that.  As it was, the next six months would pass more quickly than she would like.

Within a month, all services had been arranged, and the invitations had been sent.  Both Kyoya and Haruhi were good planners, but they had nothing on the resources and life experience of Yoshio Ootori. 

With those logistics planned, they next tackled the overall theme and color ideas so they could know the clothing arrangements.  Normally, Haruhi would not be pushing to deal with it, but she had an overly eager father clamoring for father-daughter bonding time over dress shopping.  The sooner it was done, the better.

“Haruhi! We’re going shopping tomorrow! Let’s meet in the plaza tomorrow at eight, alright?”

“Why so early, Dad?”

“Because I’ve got thirty dresses that you need to try on, and I want to make a decision about dresses by the end of this week.  We’ve got no time to lose! And I want to spend time with my little girl before she gets married!”

Haruhi groaned inwardly at the thought of so many dresses, but she knew this day was coming.  It seemed her father was saving the majority of his frilly outfit fantasies for now, so she could deal with that.  It was not every day that she got married, and she wanted to look nice, but hopefully without too many ruffles.

The next morning, Haruhi was awoken by two sets of hands pounding on her door as if the apocalypse were coming.

“Haruhi, wake up! It’s time to have some fun with us! Come on, we got breakfast!”

“I already have plans with my Dad!”

“We’re meeting him there! Come on and get dressed already! We got dresses we want you to try on, with you in mind!”

As it turned out, there were many benefits to having best friends who were in the fashion industry, since they had access to everything.  It pleased Ranka to no end.

“Haruhi, you look so adorable!”

“Dad! It costs as much as I make in a year! No!”

“But, but, it’s beautiful.  Oh, here’s a nice one! Try this one!”

“Dad! You don’t get it! That one costs even more than the one I’m wearing right now!”

“But I saved money!”

“Not this much!”

“Okay, then try this one! Look at these sleeves! It positively shimmers!”

Ranka was twirling around in a circle, showing it off to all the world who would look.  He did not deflate until Haruhi tried it on.

“I look like a shiny cotton ball.  No thanks, Dad.”

The twins waited until Haruhi had rejected all twenty-nine other dresses on Ranka’s list, and then they brought out their three dresses (two of which were still in the planning stages).

“Try these on! We think you’ll like them a lot!”

“They look stunning.  But where’s the price tag?”

“Silly Haruhi, these are our dresses! Consider it an early wedding present if you like one of them!”

Haruhi went in to try the dresses on.  The first one had the twins’ jaws dropping, while Ranka jumped up and down like a kid at Christmas.

“Choose that one, Haruhi! It’s so beautiful!”

“I like it, too.  But, let’s give the other two dresses a chance, too.”

Somehow, by the time that Haruhi walked out in the next dress, Tamaki and Renge had appeared inside the private dressing area, and their reactions were similar to Ranka’s.  The only difference was that Tamaki and Renge were slapping hands and turning their heads in the same direction with excitement written on their faces. 

“You should wear that one, Haruhi! It’s a dream! Kyo won’t be able to keep his eyes off you!”

By the time Haruhi came out in the last dress, somehow Mori had also appeared, in tow with a smiling Hunny and Reiko.

“It’s perfect!”

“Wait, not yet! It’s missing something! Kaoru, you know which one we need, right?”

“Yes, I do! The second one!”

Kaoru appeared moments later with a veil, something that was supposed to be a companion piece to the dress.  Plopping it on Haruhi’s head, he stood back to appreciate his work.

“Now she’s perfect!”

With Haruhi’s face glowing under so many approving faces, and joy from finding such a perfect dress for her, Haruhi looked like a proper bride.  It was everything she had hoped for in a dress: white satin with a thin layer of lace around the edges of the sleeves and bodice, a skirt with an A-line flare to it, and the satin hemmed into three layers for the skirt, with a small string of pearls embroidered into the edge of each layer.  The train was just enough that Haruhi could walk without assistance.

While everyone congratulated the twins on such a well-done dress, Haruhi smiled to herself about the look she would elicit from Kyoya.  She looked forward to it very much.

With that decided, Haruhi was much relieved.  The rest of the decisions for clothing were fairly easy to figure out with input from others, and Haruhi enjoyed watching Kyoya try to hold back his curiosity about the dress, especially after everyone else threw it in his face that they knew that he would like it.

Before she knew it, Haruhi was getting married.  The weekends spent traveling to and from the venue with Kyoya were exhausting, but they had overseen all.  Their Western wedding was sure to be the talk of the year, especially since it involved the Ootoris, who are never outdone.  Everyone had accepted their invitations, and the entire hotel would be filled. 

As Ranka walked Haruhi down the aisle, he said, “Kotoko would be so proud of you right now.  I can see her smiling at you right now.”

“Thanks, Dad.”

Haruhi was not known for crying, but she cried at her wedding.  It was not often that she saw such looks of love and adoration so openly displayed by Kyoya, and then to hear his vows, well, it was too much. 

“I, Kyoya Ootori, take you, Haruhi Fujioka, to be my wife.  To have and to hold, from this day forth.  I pledge my life to you, my other half.  What started as a high school crush became so much more, to want to help you, but also to want your ultimate good.  You make me want to be a better person.  I promise to stand by your side in support, no matter where jobs lead, or life takes us.  No matter what happens to our friends, I’ll always be your best friend, someone you can come to.  I will provide for you, in good times and bad, and I will love and respect you, every day, for the rest of my life.  I vow to always be there for you, and I’ll fight to keep us together, no matter what it takes.  That you can count on.  This is my promise to you, the woman I love.”

Haruhi was afraid that she would not get through her vows, but glances at her friends’ and Ranka’s excited faces gave her the calm she needed to get through.

“I, Haruhi Fujioka, take you, Kyoya Ootori, to be my husband.  For every day that we have together, until death do us part, I promise to love you.  I love you for all you are: your good heart, your intelligence and endless knowledge of the world, and how you share it with me, your fair ways of dealing with others, and your ability to lead, even if you aren’t afraid to play dirty.  You were there for me at a time when I needed it most, and I vow to give that same measure of comfort and care in our daily lives together, whatever form that requires.  I promise to come find you at the end of a long day of work, and to make sure that you are taken care of, since you put my and others’ needs before yours.  I will be your partner in life, helping you make the hard decisions, so that we can always work together to be the best version of ourselves possible.  Forever I vow to be there for you and with you, in good times and bad.  I have discovered that there’s even more to life, and I want to fully live that life with you, and only you, the man I love.”

If anyone had been looking at Ranka during Haruhi’s vows, they would have seen many tears.  Ranka had cried a little at hearing Kyoya’s vows, but it was nothing compared to Haruhi’s.  To see and hear his daughter pledge her life to Kyoya gave him the greatest satisfaction.  Kotoko would be so proud!  To see them kiss made him break several people’s eardrums, as well as cry happily with Misuzu.  And when Haruhi walked down the aisle with Kyoya, Ranka understood what they meant by giving his daughter away.         

When it came time for best man speeches at the reception, Kyoya and Haruhi prepared themselves to listen to Tamaki rhapsody upon their match as only he could.  Mori had done the speech for Hunny’s wedding, and Tamaki had been the easy choice for Kyoya.  It was rather surprising, then, that Hikaru and Kaoru walked up to the stage and began talking, finishing one another’s sentences per their usual routine.

“We all knew this day was coming,” said Hikaru.

“Though some of us knew it sooner than others,” added Kaoru before looking at his brother.

“That our best friend, Haruhi, would get married.”

“Some thought they knew what she would do, but even now, she continues to surprise us,” said Kaoru, thinking back to Haruhi’s attempts to mimic her now-husband.

“Almost since the day we met her in Host Club, we’ve been inseparable.”

“Sure, she tries to run away and ignore us from time to time, but we know she cares.”

“Because she dragged us out of our own little world, and showed us concern that we didn’t understand at first, simply in being able to tell us apart.”

“And for that we’ll forever be grateful to her for letting us into her life.”

“As a result,” said Hikaru, staring at Kyoya, “anyone who did want to marry her would have to get past us.  Since she is so caring, she needs someone who will treat her the way she deserves.”

“We may have doubted at first,” said Kaoru.

“Maybe a lot.”

“But, now that we can see how she is treated, we’re happy.”

“And we wish Kyoya and Haruhi well, because they deserve happiness.  No one would be better able to make things happen than our resident Shadow King.”

“So here’s to happy couple!”

When the twins sat down, Mori stood up.

“Haruhi brought all of us in the Host Club together to truly be a family that we hadn’t been before.  Both Haruhi and Kyoya are good people, and when Haruhi graduated, some of us worried that she would never be the same.  But, Kyoya brought her smile back, and he made her happy in a way that we hadn’t seen in a while.  In addition, Haruhi brings out a new side of him, who cares about others, but especially about Haruhi.  They make a good couple.  Here’s to Haruhi and Kyoya.”

Once Mori sat down, Hunny jumped up, eager to share his bit.  By this time, Mr. and Mrs. Ootori were prepared to sit a while as they listened to all their friends send their well-wishes.

“The first time that Kyo-chan took Haru-chan outside, I assumed he was only doing it because he felt he had to.  And even after that, he always made it seem as though he was looking out for us, when all along he was doing it for himself and Haruhi.  None of us are all that surprised now as we look back, since he was spending so much time with her, but I like to think that I helped their cause along with all our parties, especially helping Kyo-chan pick the right moment to dance with Haru-chan.  Anyone who watches those two dance together knows that they’ll always be faithful to one another.  They’re well-suited and like-minded, and I’m glad they each found someone who made them so happy.  Here’s to Kyo-chan and Haru-chan!”

Finally, Tamaki, who had been dancing in his seat, stood up.  He scampered out to the middle of the group with a smile on his face that could put the Shanghai skyline to shame.  Haruhi had wondered what he would say about them, and she was not disappointed.

“Kyo has been my good friend for many years.  I don’t know what I’d do without him! He’s always been there for me, and I love him like family!”

Tamaki would have continued if he did not notice the laughing expressions on all of the host club’s faces as they imagined his idea of “family”.  So be it.  They were his special family.

“In the same way, I love Haruhi too! While she may not be my little girl anymore, she’s still a friend that I care about.  I want the best for both of my friends, because they deserve it!  Kyo has always been a little on the quiet side, and there aren’t many who can draw him out of himself the way Haruhi can.  She can do that with anyone, but she has mastered that art when it comes to my best friend.”

Tamaki paused before coming to the next part, wanting to say it right.

“Certainly, I wouldn’t have expected this outcome at first, but now that I can see how well Haruhi complements Kyo, and he her, it makes sense.  And I couldn’t be happier for them.  They’re perfect together, and ever since I realized that Kyo loved her, I made it my mission, with a little help from Renge, to bring them together.  And they’re so cute together! Was I the only one who cried during their vows?” 

While Renge shouted about them being perfect together and that she had known all along, Tamaki allowed his inner mind theater to overtake him for a moment.  He imagined the two giving their vows again, and then their faces morphed into his and Renge’s.  He sighed for a moment before continuing.

“Kyo and Haruhi are a special part of my life, and to see them together makes me happy.  To have my two best friends together like this, so happy together, makes me glad that I sought out Kyo all those years ago, and then made Haruhi join our club.  It was the best decision I ever made.  Because of them, I found a new, special family, and I wouldn’t trade it for the world.  Thank you for your friendship, and here’s to the married couple, Kyo and Haruhi!”

Tamaki took a moment to look at his friends, and all three smiled at one another.  In the end, all had worked out as it should, and their friendship was stronger for it.  

After the speeches were done, the food was eaten, and even some fancy tuna appeared, even with Kyoya’s complaints and attempts to get rid of it.  The dancing commenced after that (without Haruhi being bumped into every ten minutes), and when the bouquet was thrown, Renge, the maid of honor, finally caught the bouquet.  That she looked knowingly at Tamaki right after made Tamaki blush, while the rest of the hosts laughed at the situation. 

At the end of the reception, Kyoya and Haruhi got ready for their honeymoon.  Their first stop, however, was Kotoko’s grave, each bringing some flowers and tokens from the wedding so that she could appreciate them.  After that, they hopped in Kyoya’s private plane for a well-deserved honeymoon, and lots of alone time, of course. 

Married life agreed well with both Haruhi and Kyoya, and getting used to living with one another was different at first, but they grew to like it.

However, before too long, Haruhi was receiving a loud phone call from Renge, while Kyoya chuckled to himself, having received a phone call at two in the morning from a frantic Tamaki.

By the time they attended Tamaki and Renge’s wedding, Reiko had a little girl in her arms, a veritable angel with the temperament of her father, and the looks of her mother.  And Hunny could not have been prouder. 

When Kaoru’s longtime girlfriend caught the bouquet at that wedding reception, some were beginning to wonder if Renge and Tamaki were up to their old tricks again.  If those two did have a part in it, then they were not going to say.

It was right after a long day that Haruhi received a call from a triumphant Kaoru, announcing his engagement.  Haruhi decided to share the good news with her husband.  After hopping into bed, Haruhi patted Kyoya’s side, and he was quick to sit next to her, eventually pulling her into his lap to cuddle before they fell asleep.

“I just had even more good news, Kyoya.”

“What’s that? Who’s getting married now?”

Kyoya put his chin on Haruhi’s shoulder while slipping his hands around Haruhi’s waist.  Haruhi beamed as she put her arms on top of Kyoya’s arms.

“Kaoru.  At long last.”

“That’s good.  I’m surprised he didn’t do it sooner.”

Haruhi shook her head at her husband.  After that, she patted his arms again.

“I think he would have, if he wasn’t so concerned about Hikaru.  However, given that Hikaru was the one who locked the two in a room for five hours in order to force his brother to stop putting it off makes it clear that he’s okay with it.”

“He ought to be, by now! He’s got a girlfriend of his own.”

“Chosen by Kaoru, even.  He knows his brother well,” Haruhi said, sliding her head to the side so that she could rest her head against Kyoya’s.  She proceeded to pat his arms a third time.    

“Is that a hint? Are you worried that I don’t know you well by now?”

“It might be.  I think you do know me well.  Too well, sometimes.”

“Which is why I can’t help but wonder why you keep acting strange tonight.  Is something wrong?”

“Oh, there’s nothing wrong at all.  Quite the opposite.  I guess you weren’t paying attention to what I said at the beginning of this conversation.”

Kyoya paused for a moment.  While he thought, Haruhi removed his glasses, and then she turned to face him, a wide smile on her face.

Finally, the lightbulb turned on. 

“What’s the even better good news, my wife?”

“You, Kyoya, are going to be a father.”

“I thought you were only going to get your yearly checkup today.”

“I was, but I wasn’t sure, so I asked to see a gynecologist as well.  Naturally, they allowed me to see one right away.”

Kyoya chuckled before kissing his wife.  Sometimes, words were not enough to convey all the joy that can come in life.  For everything else, there were soul-crushing hugs and long, soulful kisses.

“How far along are you?”

“Two months in.”

“Seven months to get ready, then.  I hope I’m a good father.”

“You’ll be an even better one than your or my father.  I have no doubt of it.”

“I love you, Haruhi Ootori.”

“And I love you, Kyoya Ootori.”

When word reached the rest of the hosts that Haruhi would be a mother, there was a firestorm of hugs and claims of being the best uncle in the world.  Haruhi smiled alongside her husband with the knowledge that all of her children would be well-loved.

By the time Kaoru held his wedding, Haruhi was fuller than a hot air balloon rising in the sky, and still just as beautiful, at least according to her husband.  He had taken to keeping one hand in hers, and the other always touching a part of her stomach, in the hopes of feeling a kick.   Haruhi did not dance that time, but she had everyone coming over to talk to her, so she never felt left out.

Arriving several days early, like any good Ootori boy, Haruhi and Kyoya’s first son was born.  With a pair of lungs inherited from Ranka, the little boy looked just like his father with his patches of black hair and onyx eyes, and all fell in love with him on the spot.  Soon, the newest Ootori heir was placed into the arms of his parents before being passed along to all the excited extended family.  No one knows who was more pleased about his birth, his mother (after many hours of labor) or Yoshio Ootori, but he was loved by all.

In later years, the boy would grow up, a studious and quiet boy like his father, though he had a habit of trailing behind Mori, who taught him kendo at a young age.  He also played much with Hunny’s little girl (and later boy) who learned kendo dutifully, and he was very protective of his twin younger siblings.

It was after Mori’s marriage to a sweet, quiet, though rather clumsy (they met by accident when he saved her from tripping), girl, that Haruhi found out that she was pregnant again.  She had hoped for a girl, and Kyoya shared that wish.  They were happy to be wrong when they found out that there would be fraternal twins.

When all the hosts gathered outside the waiting room for Haruhi, all children in tow, it was quite a circus.  Between Hunny’s two children and Tamaki’s boy, there was plenty to keep busy with besides work, but all had come together, just as they had for other weddings and births.  Hikaru and his new bride sat off in a corner by themselves, hoping for Haruhi’s safety, as the women had bonded over time, and there were some who were worried, despite Kyoya’s assurances.

But once again, Kyoya was right.  The children came late, but they were both healthy.  The little boy and girl looked alike, with their faces and hair matching Haruhi exactly, where the only difference besides gender was their eye color.  The girl had her mother’s eyes, while the boy had Kyoya’s. 

This set of twins also wreaked havoc with their tendency to dress similarly (and even cross-dress without realizing it), no doubt encouraged by their shady uncles.  The boy followed his father around everywhere, and when he was not with his family, he could be found with Hikaru and Kaoru, who liked having another twin to talk to.  He would learn sooner that he could depend on more than just his twin sister for love.

Meanwhile, his sister was spoiled by all who knew her, except maybe her mother.  Kyoya loved his little Haruhi, and the boy that dared to date her would have much to contend with.  However, she found even more affection from Tamaki, who eventually had a crop of boys, but no girls.  Tamaki gladly spoiled her, and it was rumored that Renge was already planning a marriage for her and the boy who was a year older than her. 

All of Kyoya’s and Haruhi’s children found love, in the immediate and extended family.  How could they not, with such examples before them? Ranka was always willing to babysit in the afternoon, and he loved dressing up his granddaughter.  The hosts were there, even with their own families growing.

Most of all, the children had their parents’ quiet love.  Despite the long work schedules, Kyoya always made time for his family.  His business even prospered, between Kyoya’s intuition and leadership, the latter made more famous with a wife who was just as intelligent.  Haruhi took six months off in order to take care of the children before going back to work, and while she did not take on as much work as before, she followed her dreams.  She came home early, giving her children all the love she remembered from when her mother was alive, and Kotoko’s spirit was there. 

And each day, Haruhi and Kyoya kept their wedding vows.  They worked hard to maintain their life, compromising as needed to grow, and keeping one another first. 

“Kyoya?”

“Yes, dear?” he said, as he put an arm around his wife.

“When did I look more beautiful, when I was pregnant, or not pregnant?”

Haruhi was not one to ask such questions, so Kyoya was curious.

“You look equally beautiful to me, whether pregnant with one of ours, or just as you are now.”

“Too diplomatic.  Try again,” she said, elbowing her husband of many years.

“You have a certain appeal right now, all slim and easy to turn around like so.  Much easier to kiss you.”

To prove his point, he did just that.  After that, he continued.

“However, seeing you pregnant with our children makes me prouder, and more beautiful than anything I can imagine and can’t explain.  You glow in a way, as well.  It makes you just as attractive to me.”

“Hmm, that is acceptable,” she said before getting up.

“Have I mentioned lately that I love you?”

“An excellent distraction tactic.  It’s working.”

“Good,” he said, before pulling the covers closer to them, “Now why are you asking?”

“Someone has to keep you honest,” Haruhi said with a smile.

“No one else will ask me such awkward questions, so it’s far better that it’s you.  Perhaps I should’ve answered differently, then, to make this more interesting.”

“Just stop while you’re ahead, dear.  We should try to go to sleep now before one of our little wanderers finds their way into our bed halfway through the night.”

“An excellent notion.  You can sleep right here, next to me,” Kyoya said as he laid down and pulled Haruhi closer.

“I much prefer it here, than anywhere else.  Good night, Kyoya.”

“Good night, Haruhi.”

The little ones always came (sometimes more than one, especially during thunderstorms), and space was always found.  Haruhi and Kyoya loved their children, just as much as they loved one another.  The love they shared was long-lived and fruitful.     

Alone Now Epilogue
Author’s Disclaimer: No, I don’t own OHSHC.  I do own the idea behind these children, however.  I’m a fan of fluff, and this is the final piece of fluff for this story.  Personally, I love epilogues.  I have this image of little Kyoyas running around, though I don’t know if Kyoya is going to be the indulgent father, or the stern one like his father.  I’ll leave that to your fertile imaginations, among other things.   Also, finnythewise mentioned that it would have been great to see Mori give a speech at Hunny’s wedding, but since I cannot go back and add that, I tried to make up for it by including multiple speeches, as I can see them all doing so at Haruhi’s wedding. 

And now, we have reached the end of this story.  While it is sad to end, I hope that enough of their future is shown so that you can be satisfied.  Whoever dates Kyoya’s little girl is going to have some big expectations to fill, and I laugh at the thought of Ranka trying to babysit and tell apart those twins when they close their eyes.  Once again, thanks so much for reading, and I hope you enjoyed it!

I was not planning on doing anything quite this long (75k+ is big, even for me), and despite life problems and waits, you all have been very patient.  For that, I am grateful.  Also, thanks to much nudging, I can tell you that I have another idea for a KyoHaru story, but that is all it is right now, an idea.  Once I have an outline, I’ll start writing it, though that will probably be some time.  I have some TamaHaru one-shots I need to write in the meantime, and then the multi-chapter here.  Thanks for all your support, and it’s been lovely fangirling with you all! I look forward to doing it again soon! (Sorry for such a long note, but it’s the epilogue.  I always do long notes at the end.)

Letter 36: Sophomore Year

~~~---SJSJSJ---~~~

September 2

 

Our Great and Noble Liar Leader  Our Good Rat Ruler

Your Majesty,

 

The surprise party for Sarah was a smashing success quite literally! As you probably saw from your crystal, We had a good turnout for it, and everyone got along well for once.  There was a distinct lack of fighting between the fireys and everyone else even no head-bowling, and the goblins seemed to have listened to you about not bog-diving before celebrating for our noses’ sakes.  The scrabble tournament was good fun, even if Sarah won by a large margin, even against Sir Didymus.  Toby kept near Ludo and the herd with much more success, learning how to scream deeper or higher in his case so that he can pretend he can call rocks or at least his parents at all hours

Saying good-bye to Sarah was the hardest part of the party.  Ruby Lou talked with Sarah for thirty minutes almost a record for rock-callers before she would let us speak to her, and Toby did not want to leave, almost as much as Sarah.  But, we made sure that she was ready for pesky people supplied with enough writing paper, quills, and fresh food from Hoggle’s garden to make sure that she was happy.  We had to make the box bigger to accommodate all the stuff we gave, besides the enchanted flowers that somehow appeared at the end of the party despite repeated assurances of you not being there.  Sarah was kind in giving us a gift as well, more pictures of us all.  After one last group hug initiated by Ludo, Sarah and Toby had to leave, with Sarah promising to come as soon as she could manage, and to write as always. 

This is an accurate summary of all that happened at the party, so you can be assured that nothing untoward was said of you your name was not mentioned.  As always, expect another letter from us when Sarah’s letter comes unless you are too impatient.  Our continued wishes for your happiness and health.

 

Your very tired servants,

Hoggle, Ludo, and Sir Didymus

O Kingy  Our Mighty Monarch Butterfly

Your Majesty,

 

Good morning from your favorite trio all! We hope that we wrote this early enough so that you can read it as you enjoy your daily tea.  We had a letter very late last night from Sarah as we were all in bed when it arrived, so when Hoggle saw it, he woke us all up in due haste without even waking the goblins.  It seems that Sarah has already had a busy start to her sophomore year, and it took longer to write. 

Between classes and work, Sarah complains a bit has too much happening.  With classes, she is taking a calculus and Spanish class, both of which did not fit into her schedule previously due to the science classes conflicting.  Alas, while Sarah manages the math just fine, the Spanish is giving her trouble.  It has been a year since she took a language class, and she says that she is rusty with it, especially since the teacher speaks fast.  But, we believe she will catch on soon before the teacher uses his sarcasm on her, with other friends in the class to help.  Besides those classes, she has another psychology class, this time dealing with the development of humans over time, and she enjoys it.  She also has two teaching classes, an introduction to education and a seminar about current teaching methods.  She gave us a whole page on just those two loves those classes. 

If that was not enough, somehow she is working part-time on two jobs.  She says that she is not the only one with multiple jobs, but it seems hard to fathom.  She does not go out much thankfully, as she spends her afternoons and weekends at the clothing store, and her evenings at the restaurant.  Apparently, college students like having breakfast foods for dinner and eating bacon.  Her managers have been lenient with her due to her busy schedule though we secretly hope she quits one of them to focus on classes, so hopefully her grades will not be affected. 

As always, if you wish to hear a more detailed description of Sarah’s many exploits, just ask Sir Didymus.  We shall continue doing what we do best, between Hoggle harvesting, Ludo starting to plan for winter, and Sir Didymus protecting our kingdom faithfully.  Best wishes for the kingdom’s growth and general happiness. 

Your good and faithful servants,

Hoggle, Ludo, and Sir Didymus

Letters from a Mutual Friend Ch 36

Author’s Disclaimer: No, I still don’t own Labyrinth.  All rights go to their respective owners.  Sorry for such a delay! I apologize; it’s been a month of crazy for me. Real life was busy and full of drama, as I managed to lose my purse and then had it be returned a month later, and I have had way too many car problems, as my car has been in the shop for over a month, and had 2 flat tires while using three different rental cars.  I just moved.  So that’s me.  I started this story while moving last year, so I have high hopes.  Also, for everyone going back to school, good luck! There’s more news coming from the Underground next time, so stay tuned! Thanks so much for being patient and wonderful readers! And thanks for reading! I really appreciate it! I hope you enjoyed reading!

Quick facts:
I'm a hopeless romantic, as well as an eternal optimist. :D I live and write fluff. Also, I am a Christian engineer. I love what I do. :D My art is a wonderful hobby of mine, coming from my desire to see certain couples end up together, making me a committed fangirl. I love making art almost as much as I love looking at art on here. :heart:

Long Version:
I'm very fond of fanfiction, in particular Labyrinth ( :iconjarethplz: + :iconsarahwilliamsplz: !!!) And then there are the other fandoms that I follow, though perhaps not as much (thankfully, or I'd never leave). There are some amazing artists out there; I love checking out the work and admiring it. I'm an engineer, and I love doing that type of work (aka math and science), but, I like to write for fun and take pictures. I love talking, and will talk about just about anything, so if you ever want to chat, just comment or let me know! :D

I have a bunch of stories here, and all of them can be found on my fanfiction account: www.fanfiction.net/u/2737385/t…

I love to take pictures with my new Nikon, so I'll be posting those now and then. Also, I've begun working with ASinglePetal on editing work/writing because of a contest I entered. Next art attempt: photomanipulation. I have a couple done, and most will be covers for stories I write. There should be more in the future.

Yes, I am a Christian, and proud of it! :-) This will occasionally affect my writing, but I'm not trying to preach or anything. :heart: you all!

Fandoms: Labyrinth, Jane Austen, Ouran High School Host Club, Bond/007, Marvel, Thor, Disney, Sherlock, Howl's Moving Castle, Harry Potter, The Parasol Protectorate, ATLA, POTO, and MANY others (look at all the groups). Slowly getting into Once Upon a Time and Dr. Who.

Fantasy!!! I also really enjoy this, part of the reason why I wanted to do photomanips to begin with. Faires and the supernatural are interesting to see and read about, no shame.

Did I mention that I'm a nerd, and proud of it? I'm an engineer, with very eclectic interests. By personality, I am ESFP, so go figure. And I'm left-handed!

Labyrinth Sequel?!?

Journal Entry: Sat Oct 11, 2014, 8:55 AM



So, I was on facebook yesterday, and my friend posted an article to my wall.
This one:
geektyrant.com/news/the-jim-he…

Which came from this one:
variety.com/2014/film/news/bil…

And then I read this one today:
screenrant.com/labyrinth-movie…

Leading me to the conclusion that... maybe there is a chance for a Labyrinth sequel!!!!!!

:squee:   :squee:   :squee:   :squee:   :squee:   :squee:   :squee:   :squee:   :squee:   :squee: 

So that made me really excited.  I'm not sure how long it would take, or if it will actually happen, but that would SO awesome!!!! I'm just REALLY curious to see how they would do it today, given the large gap in time.  It would be great to see both Bowie and Connelly reprise their roles, maybe an adult Sarah confronting Jareth again, or something like that so both can stay in.  And then finally get the ending that they both deserve :-) I hope they keep them in there.  And I hope for puppets.  LOTS of puppets.   Besides that, I'm not particular.  Any thoughts of your own on what should be done? :D

(Also, Hi! I am still around, just finished moving again and trying to get back onto this site after being away for too long.  And writing.  Much more writing to come.  I'm good.)


EDIT: MEH! NO! I just heard from Kiyomi-chan16  that the sequel is a no-go.  I looked online, and alas, I found this.  Sorry to get everyone's hopes up!

15 - just an idea for your Billy Joel piece?
"For the longest time" might fit the feel of the story as its sweet and sentimental.
Also thanks for your feedback on my most *recent* gallery posts.
Are there any you'd like my input on or requests...?

Hmmm.... I like the sound of it :-) Thanks! :D I still haven't had any ideas, and that would definitely work for Sarah's state of mind :-) You're most welcome! :D I have been in and out out of dA WAY too much recently, and so I have not had the time I needed to browse.  As for input or requests... did you see the end of the KyoHaru story? I finally got that done.  I was curious to know if you had been convinced of those two as a couple :-) Also, were you planning on doing any stories involving Alice and the Hatter? If not, I'd love to see one :-)
