Q:I've been looking for this fic I read a while back but I can't for the life of me remember the name of it. It's a Jareth/Sarah where Sarah is magically thrown back into the Underground, into the castle where Jareth's family lives and no one knows why. Sarah makes friends with this girl Jareth grew up with, and grows closer to Jareth and it seems like they'll get together but right at the end she decides she can't and leaves. And there's a whole plot with nosferatu I think...
continued: … and I think Sarah had previously been living with a roommate that was rich and Sarah had a degree in Art History or something but I might just be mixing up fics… Any chance you could help?
Hmm. Let’s see! I can’t remember if I’ve actually read it, but could this be the fic you’re looking for?
Charming, eclectic and unemployed Sarah is at a crossroads in her life when she is drug back to the Underground against her will. She and Jareth find that the Underground isn’t so large that they can avoid each other or the reason she was brought back.
I hope this helps, and if not, does this storyline sound familiar to anyone else?
Inside the Labyrinth: Magic Dance Behind the Scenes
Mark your calendars!
Free Comic Book Day is on May 3, 2014. Archaia will be offering a full-color hardcover anthology featuring a Labyrinth comic.
Full Scans of Archaia’s Previous Labyrinth FCBD Releases:
A modern day, dark re-telling of the classic tale ‘Rumpelstiltskin’, with everyone’s favourite baby snatcher once again playing the villain… or is he?
Sarah has found that since her return from the Labyrinth she has been granted an unexpected and unrepentant lucky streak. Unfortunately her father has been overwhelmed by his daughters gift and fallen into the life of a gambling addict, fueled by Sarah’s ‘gift.’
When she arrives home on the night of her 21st birthday dinner she finds that her fathers debts have finally been called in, and there’s nothing left to pay them with but flesh. Sacrificing herself in Toby’s stead, she believes she can use her accursed luck to solve the dilemma, only finding that now when she needs it the most it cannot be relied upon. The only thing left to do is call on an old adversary…
This story is ongoing and I update fairly regularly, usually weekly or fortnightly. The writing has evolved as the story has grown and become polished, so if the first chapters are a little rough please be patient.
Thank you, go-ask-rapunzel, for the submission!

Q:Do you know of any fics that are reminiscent of Beauty and the Beast? I could've sworn reading a fic where Jareth had been cursed as a beast during the day, and Sarah had to fall in love to break the spell (like the movie). So, do you or anyone have any Laby/Beauty and the Beast fic recs?
Hi, there! I’m not sure if I know of the exact one that you’re trying to find (sometimes fics run together in my head), but I do know of several fics based on, or inspired by, Beauty and the Beast. So, here’s a short list to hopefully get you started:
If anyone has any other suggestions, please feel free to add on or reply to this post!
Q:I wonder have you ever come across any fanfic with a Labyrinth/Phantom of the Opera AU or crossover theme please?
Let’s see what I can dig up!
There’s Only a Dream by penofjade, which is a multi-fandom crossover and builds off of Pika-la-Cynique’s web comic Girls Next Door/AsheRhyder’s web comic Roommates. It primarily focuses on Jareth/Sarah with a side of Christine/Erik, and it can be read as a stand alone. (Though, you may have to look up a character occasionally if aren’t familiar with them, as one arc does dip into Discworld territory.)
I also seem to recall a Jareth/Sarah based story with a small crossover involving Jareth’s younger sister/Erik, unfortunately, the title/author escapes me at the moment. Sorry about that.
If any followers know of fics with Phantom of the Opera themes or straight crossovers, I’m sure anon would appreciate it!
