Rest in Peace, David Bowie.  You shall be missed.  Your presence and art will continue to be felt for a long time.  

If nothing else, then I will continue writing stories so that the music and movies aren't forgotten.  He has given us much, and I hope I can give like he did.

I like to think that his memory shall live on in our hearts, in his music, movies, and other forms of art.  I hope all take his death as a reason to continue to create.  

Because of him, I found the movie Labyrinth, and the wonderful world of fanfiction.  My life has changed so much since deciding to try to write those years ago.  I have been blessed by meeting many wonderful people, and I have been able to develop my writing, as well as develop other artistic abilities, like photograph and photomanipulation.  I have him to thank for that, and for the music that was my friend when I needed it.  I love several of his songs, but the one that I connect to most is Rock N Roll Suicide.  It always reminds me that I am not alone.  I hope we all keep that in mind as we mourn his loss, that he isn't truly gone.  

Finally, I like to think that Jareth finally went home to the Underground.  But that's just me.  He's in a better place now.  

Long live the Goblin King!
Chapter 17: The Stars (Are Out Tonight)

"There's a Starman waiting in the sky."

It had all started with a dream at fifteen.

At least, Sarah thought it was a dream: of goblins, a Labyrinth, and a tights-wearing male who was in her thoughts more than she liked to say.

But then there were gifts. As she continued to write and illustrate, things like new paint and supplies would appear with notes. Sometimes, it was a collection of songs, sure to inspire her.

"He'd like to come and meet us, but he thinks he'd blow our minds."

The first time, it was signed by the Goblin King. Other times, they were signed by the Thin White Duke, Aladdin Sane, or Ziggy Stardust. Other times, they were names like Thomas Jerome Newton, Paul Ambrosius, John Blaylock, Monte, Major Jack, and Philip Jeffries.

Each time, Sarah pondered who this mystery man was, who gave her so much inspiration, filling her with wonder as she dreamed again and again of this mystery man, and a Labyrinth.

"There's a Starman waiting in the sky."

Sarah continued to write and try to become published. One day, children would love her stories, just like Toby did.

Then, one day, she became famous. A well-known musician by the name of David Bowie came along, and he chose her story as part of a contest for a children’s book. She had admired him before, but now, she loved him. She had never had much luck with love, and was resigned to the single life. He was her dream.

She never met him, but she saw photos. His smile made her thrill, for reasons she could not explain.

"He's told us not to blow it"

Suddenly, right before she finished writing the big story, he died. A bright Star lost his light. Despite this, Sarah continued her story, because he would have wanted her to finish. And finish she did. It was well-received by all, children and adults alike. The Labyrinth would come alive with her stories.

"Cause he knows it's all worthwhile."

Some part of her had hoped that Bowie had been her benefactor, however unlikely.

But then the first official copy of her story appeared on her doorstep one night, with another note. It wasn't him, much to her disappointment.

Instead, it was signed by Jareth. That name sounded familiar. A part of her longed to truly know this Jareth.


A pause followed the barely-breathed name, and then a breeze swept by Sarah on the porch.

"He told me:"

"Yes, Love?"

That voice she knew. It sang to her. It filled her lonely nights with hope. It led her to meet amazing people who changed her life because they all shared a love of his music and personality. But how could it be him? She looked up into familiar blue eyes.

"It can't be you. You died."

"Who says? Don't we determine our fate? It was time for me to return to my rightful home. I came here and did what I had wanted to do," he said, hands on his hips, looking proud and content.

"Where is home?" asked Sarah in confusion.

"Let the children lose it."

"You know where it is. You've dreamed of it for years, written of it, and given it life. I did my best to help," he said hoping the lost memories would not be lost anymore.

Sarah gasped as her eyes widened in enlightenment.

"So it was you, for all these years," she said, a rush of memories overtaking her.

Images of the Labyrinth came again with her memories, and all the previous signed names came back. He had done so much for her in helping her learn of the world, to grow up.

"Yes, I am by your side, Precious. Always."

"But how? There were so many names," she said as she tried to understand.

Jareth leaned in, narrowing his eyes and willing her to see.

"Think of the names I used. Have you never heard of them before? Have I not always wanted and said, 'Let the children to use it', your story, to inspire them? That was always my intention in choosing you."

The music came back then, of a certain Starman that was waiting. Then the connection came, of Ziggy, and many others.

"Why me?" Sarah asked with humility, looking down. His hand came to her cheek, forcing her to look him in the eye.

"Everything I've done, I've done for you. Haven't you seen that, Sarah? Your vision, your passion and creativity. That is exactly what I want and need. You continued my legacy."

Jareth smiled once Sarah began to grin at his words.

"I'd gladly do more for you, after all you've given me," said Sarah. She took his other hand at that.

Jareth pushed her hand away.

"I don't want your gratitude, Sarah. I want one thing, and one thing only: your love."

Jareth put his hands together, as though to plead with her. "Just fear me, love me, do as I say, and I will be your slave."

Sarah pushed his hands down and apart. Then, she clasped his hands with hers.

"I don't want a slave, Jareth. I want you."

Jareth enveloped Sarah in his arms. He held her close, and both savored their first moment together. Both did not know it, but the same song was going through their heads, that "The greatest thing you'll ever learn is just to love, and be loved in return."

"I love you, Sarah," said Jareth, leaning in to kiss her.

"I love you, too," whispered Sarah.

"Come with me, Sarah. My kingdom and I are not complete without you. I need my equal beside me."

Sarah pulled away from him, looking confused again.

"But what of your legacy here?"

"Let the children boogie."

"You have done your part. There are others who will follow your example, who will be inspired. Together, we will all bring my dream to life."

Sarah's mind was made after that. She had been able to create much, and she was sure she would create more where she was going. She had found her mystery man, and love.

"Together," she said, taking his hand. "Let's go home, Jareth. Underground."

As the two disappeared, two things happened. First, there were those who lived near Sarah who thought they heard singing, of a promise, of forever. How it was not long at all.

The second thing that happened was noticed by more, a falling star. The man who fell to earth finally went home.

"The stars are out tonight.

Stars are never sleeping,
The dead ones and the living.

We will never be rid of these stars,
But I hope they live forever."
Sweet Possibilities: Ch 17 Bowie Tribute
Author's Notes : I don't own Labyrinth. This is dedicated to David Bowie. His memory shall live on, and we as writers will help. This was meant to be a Drabble, but got too long. The title naturally comes from his song, the song that spoke to me most today as I listened to his music in tribute. Bowie has passed in to a better place, but I like to think of it as going home to the Underground.Thanks for reading! Long live the Goblin King! :-)
Hi all!

Merry Christmas! :-) Happy Holidays,  and Happy New Year! :-)

Somehow, it is already Christmas. It's been a busy year. But, it's been a great year,  full of much change.

In this past year, I got a new job and moved back to my home state. I've been adjusting pretty well to the new job and apartment. I've gained new friends, but am struggling to hold on to the ones I left behind. I feel like I'm not doing enough, even as my life becomes busy. I've seen and done some amazing things, and I am excited for what this new year brings. I want to make this new year even better with bringing new, different kinds of change to my life.

During this special time of year, I feel the love, joy, and peace especially present in my life (and not just because I listen to Christmas music constantly), and I want to bring that into the new year in a big way. I want to fill the rest of my life with it not just now. I'm already making plans to work on weight loss and taking time to "respect myself" so that I take better responsibility for and take care of myself.  

As I journey into the new year, I look forward to more change, and I hope that it brings the right priorities to light. I still consider interacting with everyone on here and writing fanfiction to be important, for my sanity and need to fangirl. Goodness knows I need to do lots more fangirling about Star Wars, but I've got lots of stories I need to update, and fandoms to focus on. Those are my first priority.  Labyrinth has been neglected too much in the last year, and I intend to fix that. Ouran has some big ideas that I want to research and tackle. And then there's just lots of Strange Magic stuff that I want to do. So much music, so little time.

Thank you all for all your faves, kind words, and support. It is all appreciated. I'm thankful for so much today, and you are all a part of it. I hope you all have a safe and wonderful Merry Christmas (or whatever you celebrate), and that your New Year is the new chance to start again that you've been waiting for.  I'm with my family,  and I'm glad to be with them again. What are you all doing? I hope you are surrounded by loved ones no matter what.

Merry Christmas! :-)

Chapter 16: 200 Word Drabbles: Say Who?

Drabble 1: Secret Santa Exchange Gone Wrong


“Then do you have any suggestions for a Secret Santa gift?”

Jareth’s ears perked up at once, a wonderful, awful idea forming as he followed a man desiring Sarah’s attention.  Not for much longer, if Jareth had any say in the matter.  He had been following the coworker of Sarah for months, and it seemed that the pitiful male was going to act, not just trail Sarah around. 

“Perhaps I can help you?” asked Jareth, appearing in the store’s uniform after the encroacher left the other clerk.

After the man explained his plight with the gift, Jareth pulled out a bracelet containing an owl pendant.

“I believe this will solve your problems.  It’s on special today: buy any other item, and get this one for free.  Are you interested, Sir?”

The bracelet was taken, leaving a smirking Jareth.  His satisfaction was complete once the “gift” was wrapped.  Jareth snapped his fingers, making the bracelet turn into a striped green and red, fuzzy set of handcuffs, with little bells on the end.

Jareth watched the gift exchange from a window.

“Sarah, this gift shows how I feel about you,” the pretender said.

Her slap of outrage came soon after.  “You pervert!”


Drabble 2: Ruined Holidays


Who did he think he was? Jareth with dark hair?

Sarah was taken; everyone knew that.  All had met Jareth, and yet this….. loser with chicken poop for brains seemed to think that Sarah would give up Jareth for him.  Wrongo!

The question became: how to shove it in the delusional imbecile’s face the hardest? He was determined to ruin the nitwit’s holidays until he gave up, dogged little snot.

On Valentine’s Day, Jareth appeared at work, armed with a picnic basket and radio.  He serenaded Sarah in the teacher’s lunchroom while the half-brain stood mute with flowers. 

On Sweetest Day, Jareth gave Sarah daisies (they looked so pretty behind her ear) that grew of their own accord and kept suspect twits with chocolate at a distance.

At the Thanksgiving party, Jareth made a point of “accidentally” dropping food on the idiot three different times, whenever he whispered in Sarah’s ear.

Christmas was coming.  Jareth considered what he had planned to do on Christmas Day.  Why not do it a little early? At least then, they would have more to celebrate with family.

Jareth proposed to Sarah at her work’s Christmas party.  Jareth grinned triumphantly when Sarah accepted.

Sweet Possibilities Ch 16

Author’s Disclaimer: I don't own Labyrinth.  All rights go to their respective owners.  Drabble theme was "Say Who?", if Jareth found out about a suitor before Sarah did.  Here's two drabbles, Christmas themed.  The second drabble is inspired by a comment made in the movie “While You Were Sleeping”.  In it, Sandra Bullock talks about how a guy appeared during Christmas and subsequent holidays, and how he has ruined all of them for her.  I thought it was a funny idea, and I love that movie.  Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays! :D I hope you have a safe and wonderful time with loved ones.   Thanks so much for reading! I hope you enjoyed!

Quick facts:
I'm a hopeless romantic, as well as an eternal optimist. :D I love 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:

I now have a profile on, livejournal, and A03! :D

Long Version:
I'm very fond of fanfiction, in particular Labyrinth ( :iconjarethplz: + :iconsarahwilliamsplz: = :heart: !!!) 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). However, 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:…

I love to take pictures with my new Nikon, so I'll be posting those now and then. Also, I've done a variety of things with ASinglePetal on editing work/writing because of a contest I entered of hers. I've also started photomanipulation! :D I have a couple done, and most will be covers for stories I write. There should be more in the future, once I can get myself away from writing.

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, Strange Magic, Frozen, 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.

POTO: either, depends on mood
HP: Hermoine & Snape (written this), Hermoine & Harry, Luna & Neville, Draco & Ginny, a variety, as well as canon

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

1. Sarah and the Laws of Physics: my first one, and finished. The feedback from this story has been great, and now I want to write a short sequel (see details below). Started Feb 2011, finished Summer 2011.

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: Complete. Based on a one-shot/drabble by Kyndsie. Link included in story. Another way in which Jareth might have tried to win Sarah. Started Sept 2012, finished Feb 2014.

6. Sarah and Laws of Queendom: Currently finishing. Sequel to Sarah and the Laws of Physics. Started July 2011.

7. Arrogance and Animosity: on hiatus until Summer 2015. Labyrinth meets Pride and Prejudice (and some Shakespeare), so excited to do it. Will be finished after Sarah and the Laws of Queendom. 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. Under the Stars: Versions 1 & 2: Fluffy stories (one-shots) about Jareth and Sarah being together under the stars.

10: Love in the Spring: 2 related one-shots that are gifts to a friend, Kiyomi-chan16 . Labyrinth meets Frozen songs. The result is silly fluff.

11: Sweet Possibilities: All one-shots written for livejournal. So far includes: One Samhain Night (Halloween fic), Goblin Gifts (Christmas fic), A Winterfest Story (Christmas fic), Them Apples, Have Stick Will Travel, For the Longest Time. Hope to add: Hide and Seek and Beautiful

12. There's A LOT of one-shots, so go look at my folder of one-shots to get a look at all of them.

13. Of Love and Dreams: a future story, romance novel spoof I've always wanted to write. More J/S, with some Toby and Sarah sibling time. 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.

Non J/S:
This list is growing, thanks to OHSHC and Strange Magic.
Involving OC's of ASinglePetal
1. Assassins Don't Wear Pink
2. Assassins Don't Wear Dresses (sequel to 1)

Fantasy!!! I also really enjoy this, part of the reason why I wanted to do photomanips to begin with. Fairies 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!

Rest in Peace, David Bowie.  You shall be missed.  Your presence and art will continue to be felt for a long time.  

If nothing else, then I will continue writing stories so that the music and movies aren't forgotten.  He has given us much, and I hope I can give like he did.

I like to think that his memory shall live on in our hearts, in his music, movies, and other forms of art.  I hope all take his death as a reason to continue to create.

Finally, I like to think that Jareth finally went home to the Underground.  But that's just me.  He's in a better place now.  

Long live the Goblin King!
