[livejournal.com profile] pentapus has drawn Labyrinth/SGA art.

Yes, I said Labyrinth/SGA. And Rodney is a grumpy goblin in a helmet and I may just explode with glee right there.

Go see!

So, in a flyer from Forbidden Planet, the UK collectibles store, they announce a new action figure of Jareth, the Goblin King from Labyrinth.

Now, this isn't the first Jareth action figure I've seen, but the previous one was three times as expensive and looked like ass.

This one? Looks pretty damn cool. I'm not crazy about the hair, but the costume is fantastic, so is the snarky look, and they've obviously paid proper attention to The Area. Plus, he "includes interchangeable hands, a crystal ball, and a little goblin figure accessory."

I'm going to put in a pre-order for this and squee like a happy fangirl. Yay!

Or as my SO put it, "Aw, they know you exist!"

Exactly.

According to Forbidden Planet, the figure will arrive on the 14th of May and cost £9.99, and US store Entertainment Earth thinks it's coming in April and has it listed at $15.99.

The last of the Five Things! Yes, I slowed down a little on these. *g*
Many thanks to [livejournal.com profile] aka_arduinna for beta'ing.

For [livejournal.com profile] swiss_kun:

Five things that make Hercules regret being a hero )

For [livejournal.com profile] elynross:

Five ways in which Sarah met Jareth again )

And [livejournal.com profile] therienne gave me "Five things the legends got wrong about Hercules and Iolaus", but it wouldn't stay in the numbered list format; instead it turned into a small story.

1200 words, PG, Hercules/Iolaus.

Legendary )

My last three drabbles for the drabble meme. Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] aka_arduinna for beta and for letting me steal all her lines!

[livejournal.com profile] wickedwords asked for SGA, Rodney, and 'the stuff of legends'. I may have fudged a bit on that last one, but I did put a story element in that I know she likes...*cough*

In McKay's opinion, one of Sheppard's more annoying traits )

[livejournal.com profile] ltlj asked for SGA, John, and comforty.

Sheppard stared up at the medlab ceiling )

And then someone asked for SGA/Labyrinth.

drabble backstory, or, who to blame )

'Look, Major--' )

These three drabbles belong together, so I'll post them in a row, but the first is for [livejournal.com profile] marici, the second for [livejournal.com profile] svmadelyn (or so she claims), and the third is for [livejournal.com profile] aka_arduinna, who gets a freebie on account of being a wicked enabler and beta for the first two. *g*

Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] elynross for making the third all better!

The gilt-edged paper dangled from Jareth's fingers like a dead leaf )

Sarah hunted him through the dancing throng )

As they waltzed down the long gallery for a second time )

ETA: I have one no more drabble slots! Will post the last three drabbles later - other fandoms, mainly SGA.

Mirrormask

We walked into the movie theater to see Mirrormask and ended up right behind Roger Corman, who was presented with a lifetime achievement award later on. (No, Corman didn't have anything to do with Mirrormask, which is a Dave McKean/Neil Gaiman production, but he was the Guest of Honor for the Amsterdam fantastic film festival.)

Interesting movie - entrancing, fantastical images, to which the story seemed to play second fiddle. Distinctly Gaiman, but it felt like a retread of images and ideas he used earlier and better in other stories, like Coraline and Neverwhere. Still, I'm glad to have seen it, and I wish I could see it again in a theatre where the sound isn't turned up to 11 - this one almost blew us out of our seats.

I've seen mentions of Mirrormask somehow being a sequel to Labyrinth, but I don't think that's really the case. It's a story of a magical world, growing up and taking responsibility, sure, but that's a very broad similarity. The only specific reference I saw was someone juggling four crystal balls in one hand, exactly as Jareth (or rather, Michael Moschen) did in Labyrinth. And the Valentine storyline resembles Hoggle's, but I'm not sure if that was intentional.

Off to bed now. *fwomp*

[livejournal.com profile] astolat asked for another Labyrinth drabble (the first two are here).

Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] elynross and [livejournal.com profile] aka_arduinna for beta.

It was only a matter of time before Sarah got bored )

Taking a leaf from [livejournal.com profile] wickedwords' book: I have 6 slots left in the drabble request meme, so if anyone wants a drabble in Hercules: the Legendary Journeys, SGA, Invisible Man or Labyrinth, please comment. You can throw words at me, or characters, or settings, or all three, and be as specific or non-specific as you like. :-)

I offered to write drabbles, and got three takers, so clearly the rest of you are determined to make my life easy. Heee.
Thanks to the versatile [livejournal.com profile] aka_arduinna for beta on all three!

[livejournal.com profile] ltlj asked for a Hercules: the Legendary Journeys drabble, with a missing scene for one of her stories. I chose Home Is Where The Heart Is, because I love it so.

Nesmut sidled into the bedchamber )

[livejournal.com profile] elynross asked for Labyrinth, with grown-up Sarah meeting Jareth.

The second time )

[livejournal.com profile] halimede asked for Labyrinth too.

The Labyrinth is growing wild, my lady, Sir Didymus said )

[X-posted to [livejournal.com profile] vidding]

The Vividcon Premieres show is over, alas, but on the other hand: that means I can post my vid. Yay!

Fandom: Labyrinth
Music: "Blue Jean" by David Bowie
Format: .avi with the DivX codec
Size: 14.4 Mb
Description: You may find that having is not so pleasing a thing, after all, as wanting.

Download the vid (right-click and save, please!)

Read the lyrics

I've said it before, but it bears repeating: galumping great thanks to [livejournal.com profile] elynross, [livejournal.com profile] halimede and both halves of [livejournal.com profile] flummery for beta-ing and to [livejournal.com profile] sockkpuppett for teaching me how to mess with motion settings and track mattes at the very last minute. You all rock.

Should you have any trouble playing the vid, I have outlined some solutions on my vids page.

I would love to know what you think, and that includes critical feedback, here or at marycrawford@squidge.org .

I'll probably do a post about the making of this vid later, once I have recovered from Saturday's fantastic family wedding.
