    All-time fave! Amazing long fic and the richest worldbuilding I have seen of the Labyrinth and how it functions and how other worlds interact (or don't) with the Goblin Kingdom.

    "How much do you know about legends?" the man asked abruptly.

    Brian shrugged. "There's lots. They involve magic."

    "No, they involve fear."

    OMFG this fic is an absolute whirlwind with beautifully crafted tension, conflict, hidden motives, and it still manages a hopeful ending. All-time faves.

    Summary

    When I was a child,
    I spoke as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child.
    But when I became a woman,
    I put away childish things.

    Ten years later, Sarah revisits the labyrinth - or is it the labyrinth that revisits her?

    Bookmarker's Notes

    This story is an angst fest and it is most definitely dark. I absolutely place it in horror. Even with all of the switching between past and present tense, what resonated with me about this fic is the tension between Sarah as an unreliable narrator but also the intentional confusion that Jareth creates.

    There isn’t a happy ending here, so definitely prepare a pick-me-up fic to dive into afterward.

    Hela did not ask for company in her sealed-up world, but evidently Odin is economical in containment strategies for his misbegotten children.

    AMAZING story of "if Odin had banished Loki" (or Odin makes his kids share a room).

    The writing is beautiful, but also that sense of what it means to be family.

    Beautiful rhythm to the story.

    The blood red ring around Delphine’s neck has dimmed, no longer as bright and ugly as it once was. They will both carry scars. Their bodies are marked, irrevocably changed by a lawless city of ruthless, evil men. These wounds will follow them, but not define them.
