Four Labyrinth (Sarah/Jareth) Fic Recs

Note: I thought it was only fitting that I post these recs today.

Why This Must Be Read: This is a 5 times fic and what I wouldn’t give for an entire story based around the first possible future. These are sadder Sarahs, but there’s really no way you could go through what she went through without there being some repercussions. However, the final story ends with such a lovely idea made me grin.

Why This Must Be Read: I love the idea of the Labyrinth itself having its own powers and rules that even Jareth can’t control. This fic takes a look into the future and hints at a Sarah and Jareth who can meet in the middle and find some very common ground.

Why This Must Be Read: Let’s be very honest, Labyrinth suggested at a very, very adult proposal with Jareth’s whole ‘Love me, fear me, do as I say and I will be your slave’ business. On top of that, Jareth is a Trickster, it’s what he does. He manipulates and schemes and if you don’t keep a few steps ahead of him, there are consequences. This story goes with the premise that was already inherent in the film, but addresses it when Sarah is an adult. They’re a bit more evenly matched this time and this story does fun things with those things that go bump in the night. It also touches on Sarah being A Girl Who Saw Things and what that may mean in the long run. Sexy, funny, dark, and darn good read.

Why This Must Be Read: True confession time – I only started reading this story today and I’m halfway through it, so I can’t verify that what has already been an incredible story continues to be one – but I’m thinking it will! I love stories where Sarah’s trip through the Labyrinth either gives or amplifies her own powers and strengths. This story is very focussed on the power of story-telling and I think it’s a very fitting tribute to a film that certainly showed me how powerful characters and stories can be. It also delves into fairy tales and the fae and it’s incredibly well-written. Be warned – grab a quiet spot and a cup of tea because you want to savor this one!
