''Girls Next Door'' by Pika-la-Cynique is a ''{{Franchise/Buildingverse}}'' {{Fan Webcomic|s}}, told from the perspective of the eponymous Girls Next Door:[[note]]though they actually live upstairs, not [[GirlNextDoor next door]],[[/note]] Sarah of ''Film/{{Labyrinth}}'' and Christine of ''Theatre/ThePhantomOfTheOpera''. It follows them as they live together as roommates in an apartment building with NoFourthWall, attend a university, and try to get on with their lives in spite of their respective [[StalkerWithACrush stalkers-slash-suitors]] who live downstairs. They are often joined by friends and neighbors from all corners of fiction, including [[Franchise/PiratesOfTheCaribbean James]], [[Theatre/LesMiserables Javert]], [[Literature/GoodOmens Crowley, Aziraphale]], [[Literature/TheLordOfTheRings Legolas]], [[Franchise/PiratesOfTheCaribbean Lizzie]], [[Franchise/HarryPotter Luna]] and [[Literature/{{Discworld}} Nanny Ogg]].

Seems like every fiction in existence has a door leading to the ''{{Franchise/Buildingverse}}'' (and back).

* TangledFamilyTree: Jareth's inexplicable relation to pretty much every magical blond in fiction ([[Literature/TheChroniclesOfNarnia Jadis]] is his mom, [[Film/HellboyIITheGoldenArmy Nuada]] is his nephew, [[Anime/HowlsMovingCastle Howl]] is his great great great great grand-nephew once removed...) is something of a RunningGag. This comes from ''Roommates''. In the ''{{Franchise/Buildingverse}}'' every magical being is related somehow, not just the blonds.

*** Sarah and Christine: [[TheIngenue Ingenues]] who have grown into self-assured women. They struggle to reconcile knowing that stalking isn't sexy--they made the "right" choice in canon--but still being attracted to and caring about their suitors.

*** Eric and Jareth: [[StalkerWithACrush Stalkers with Crushes]]. Too dark and villainous for their canons to grant them happy endings, but too sexy and sympathetic for the fandoms not to wish it for them. Both are also musical and theatrical, with a taste for the dramatic. On the other side, as alike as they are, Eric has a great deal of fundamental human compassion, and ''chooses'' to let Christine go, while Jareth is conversely very ''in''human and fae, and truly does not understand that kind of human morality.

* IHaveBoobsYouMustObey: One of Christine's favorite persuasion techniques is the ''cleavage squeeze''. She also frequently combines it with PuppyDogEyes for maximum effect. (As Sarah pointed it out this only works on guys.)

*** In ''Labyrinth'', it's a scene of temptation, yes--the princess dress, David Bowie... but it's portrayed as kind of monstrous, what with the other partygoers. They're wearing demon masks, and acting… orgy-ish. And then they surround Sarah and start laughing at her. Inversely, at Éponine's ball the partygoers who are watching are Sarah's ''friends'', who care about her. They're shipping them, watching with bated breath, and ''giving them space''. The partygoers this time are kind and respectful--the fear and mockery isn't there.

* TomboyAndGirlyGirl: Sarah to Christine. Both are very much competent and GenreSavvy in their own right, but Sarah [[FryingPanOfDoom favors the most direct approach]], while Christine [[GuileHero prefers more subtle manipulation]].
