Labyrinth, 2 recs, Sarah Williams/Jareth

Two Sarah/Jareth fics for the request by hiddencait.

Fandom: Labyrinth
Pairing: Sarah Williams/Jareth
Title: As the World Falls Down
Author: Jade9
Rating/Warning(s): G/none
Word Count/WIP?: complete at 20 chapters, 67,970 words
Recced By: slr2moons

author's summary: Sarah returns home for Toby's tenth birthday, after breaking up with her latest boyfriend. Some strange coincidences start her thinking more and more about the Labyrinth...and its King...

Why This Must Be Read: Set 10 years after the film. This fic is solidly written. While it does begin rather tropey, I was pleased with how the author resolved it in the fic's first half, and moved on to less predictable things. The small cast of OCs and expanded bit canon characters truly shine! A good, enjoyable adventure fic with a touch of romance. ^^ Note this fic has a very similar title to one previously recced for Labyrinth here, but they are completely different.


Fandom: Labyrinth
Pairing: Sarah Williams/Jareth
Title: Into the Rose Garden
Author: Dryad13
Rating/Warning(s): R/none
Word Count/WIP?: complete at 22 chapters, 109,232 words
Recced By: slr2moons

author's summary: Sarah has good grades, a circle of friends, and a cute boyfriend. Life's great...right? So why does she have the strange feeling that something's missing? Fairy tales show that magic will make you or break you. Which category does she belong in?

Why This Must Be Read: Set 3 years after the movie. This fic takes a line of dialogue from canon and spins it into an amazing tale of reprocussions. I had to force myself to stop reading for sleep and work, it was so engrossing! Well-written (if with the odd grammar error) and worth a read for anyone who has wondered what might happen between Sarah and Jareth in the future.
