The Goblin Queen by sidhehannah The Goblin Queen by sidhehannah
pencil + paper with too much tooth = not good!

I got very bored with this, as you can see. I plan to color it in PhotoPlus later, but I have SO MANY other ideas I don't know when that will be.

This is Sarah, from Labyrinth. Alternate ending: trapped by Jareth, she is forced to become his queen in exchange for Toby's life. Now she's the icy spouse of the Goblin King, lavished with all the luxuries she could possibly want - not to mention co-ruling the goblin realm - but perpetually sad to be married to someone she does not love. Think Hades and Persephone.

I dunno, I found him weird too, but even as I child I was like "Meh... I could learn to love him -- if only for the clothes!" :D

Where did you get the information about how it was supposed to be from? I'm curious. I knew that Jareth was part of Sarah's imagination *sob sob* from Inside the Labyrinth, the extra footage from the movie.

Wow, I only popped over to see what you'd written under the picture and got suckered into reading the whole conversation! I never thought of Jareth as being part of Sarah's psyche, but I guess it makes more sense!

It was a book origonally, wasn't it? I'm afraid I'm one of those people who loves things but doesn't always research around them!

It wasn't originally a book, just a wacky and wonderful idea for a Jim Henson movie. I'd never thought of that before either, but it's an interesting idea.

Very cool. Makes me think about our story that we haven't written yet. Perhaps thats because we got all our inspiration after watching that movie.

Jareth took Toby to become his sucessor, he fell in love with Sarah watching her defeat all his contrivances when she came to rescue Toby. In the end however, Sarah chose to live as a human. ( Jareth cannot die until he has a hier and he still loves Sarah )

Indeed?? Interesting, interesting... I was thinking he needed a QUEEN to maintain control over the goblin kingdom and keep from being overthrown, and he had his eye on Sarah. He took Toby in order to force her to choose between his freedom and hers (he lied about Toby turning into a goblin after 13 hours- that was only to test Sarah's worth). That's my alternate ending. I like your real solution, it makes sense!

Labyrinth is a bit mixed up as remember Henson ( sadly didn't have the confidence to do it all himself ) got Lucas involved and Lucas messed it all up ( ' Hoggle ' ) But, that is what Henson really had in mind really. You'll notice there are no female goblins. In fact the whole Golbin Kingdom is male, there's no female presence at all anywhere se. Its like Tin Tin's world , and as such ' reproduction ' there is impossilbe, Jareth has to adopt from without of the kingdom ( just as he was and so on ) Toby would have turned into a Goblin after so many hours ~ he would have turned into Jareth see, Jareth II ( or III or XXVIII or howmany have there been ) and Jareth / Bowie there would have died. It all ' went wrong ' when Jareth fell in love with Sarah.

[ This isn't like ' the real ' version , however, you've discovered that wrote a alternate verserion of Labyrinth and a sequeal in the 90s ~ the overall concept being to get back to Henson's real idea and get the Lucas out ]

I like Hoggle! I don't think it's meant to be a serious movie- it was made to be a kid's movie, but that makes the underlying sexuality and ambiguity of Jareth's motives all the more... Well, odd. If this were a book, it would beg some serious literary analysis. No wonder there's so much Labyrith fanfiction out there... Which I'm sorry to say I abstain from reading due to the sickening amount of JarethxSarah romance (shudder).

oh ~ part of the serious problem with the Sarah / Jareth thing ; Jareth isn't real. ( now THERE'S a realationship problem for you )

[ Jareth is part of Sarah's mind , trying to become real , remember ' I Can't Live Within You ' ]

If you think that's weird, you should hear what I have to say about Howl's sometime ~

Well, he's real in the same way Santa Claus is real... Wait, what, Howl?? Oh gosh, I love that movie (and book), and I normally hate anime!

Have you read the book ' Howl's ' by Diana Jones ? ( you gotta read the book ! )
Reply
:iconsidhehannah:
sidhehannah Featured By Owner Nov 27, 2006
Oh yes, I read it before I knew of the movie because it just so happens that Diana Wynne Jones is one of my favorite authors ever! If you haven't read "The Darklord of Derkholm" (satirical and hilarious) or "Deep Secret," you must. HMC wasn't one of her best books in my opinion, but when I heard Miyazaki was doing a film version, my interest was piqued. Whaddya know, it's now one of my favorite movies! Howl's such an endearing character. I've been meaning to do some fan art (not that I have the time), but not anime style- I despise anime. Except for HMC, of course.

Whoo, that was a long-winded reply.
