Corollary to ''Webcomic/{{Roommates}}'', this Website/DeviantArt fancomic combines the ''Film/{{Labyrinth}}'', ''Theatre/ThePhantomOfTheOpera'', ''Franchise/PiratesOfTheCaribbean'' and ''Theatre/LesMiserables''. This one is told from the girls' perspective, and apparently developed its own storyline with only loose connections to ''Roommates''. Found [[http://pika-la-cynique.deviantart.com/gallery/772068 here]]. Tends to run on FinaglesLaw and RuleOfFunny (or [[RuleOfSexy Rule of Fanservice]]). Part of the ''{{Franchise/Buildingverse}}''.

Rooming arrangements so far:
* [[Film/{{Labyrinth}} Sarah]] with [[Theatre/ThePhantomOfTheOpera Christine]]
* [[Film/{{Labyrinth}} Jareth]] with [[Theatre/ThePhantomOfTheOpera Erik]]
* [[Franchise/PiratesOfTheCaribbean Commander Norrington]] with [[Theatre/LesMiserables Javert]]
* [[Literature/GoodOmens Crowley]] with [[Literature/GoodOmens Aziraphale]]
* [[Literature/TheLordOfTheRings Legolas]] with [[Film/SweeneyToddTheDemonBarberOfFleetStreet Sweeney Todd]]

!!This comic provides examples of:
[[quoteright:300:~~{{Fan Webcomic}},{{WebVideo}} MediumAware, MassiveMultiplayerCrossover, MetaFic, RomanticComedy, FantasticComedy, BlackComedy, {{Fanservice}}, MindScrew~~]]

* AddedAlliterativeAppeal: A lot. From ''Sakura Sushi'' to the ''Convenient Café''. Not to mention the {{Alliterative Title}}s for the pages. And Jareth:
** [[http://browse.deviantart.com/?qh=§ion=&q=gnd+owl#/d3hrjfr "You malignant malodorous menace!"]]
** [[http://pika-la-cynique.deviantart.com/art/GND148-Distraction-no-Jutsu-243649636 "Curvaceous, Cocky AND Clever..."]]
* {{Adorkable}}: Aziraphale. Erik, when he's in CannotTalkToWomen mode, has [[http://pika-la-cynique.deviantart.com/art/GND122-Happiness-and-Homicide-179376030 shades]] [[http://pika-la-cynique.deviantart.com/art/GND220-Blind-Spot-361742046 of this]] as well.
* AndThatWouldBeWrong
--> '''[[Theatre/LesMiserables Javert]]: ''' "It is my belief that we could be facing a loss of all rationality, sense of right and wrong, as well as sensible narrative - we may fall prey to some form of mass hypnosis, leading to complete moral abandon & sexual debauchery."
--> '''[[{{Labyrinth}} Jareth]]: ''' "...and...?"
--> '''[[Theatre/LesMiserables Javert]]: ''' "...and that would be bad."
* {{Angrish}}: Many characters, frequently.
* TheAlcoholic: Jamie and Marsha.
* AmazinglyEmbarrassingParents: Jadis. The page where she talks about the effects of [[AnIcePerson cold air]] on guys in PaintedOnPants is gold.
* ArtShift: Even [[http://pika-la-cynique.deviantart.com/gallery/#/d1x8soy lampshaded]].
* ArsonMurderAndJaywalking: On page 98, Rooftop CSI, "...by letting you away with kidnap, blackmail and loud music after 10PM..." (Javert doesn't actually list by name the last straw after this, but it's definitely falls in the FelonyMisdemeanor category.)
* BeyondTheImpossible: The main reason Chihiro is the unofficial president of the Wibsy (''Weirdo Boyfrend & Supernatural Stalker'' club) is that, using Christine's words, "It's hard to trump dating a ''river''." While the others have at least ''human-shaped'' (a [[TheFairFolk fae]], a [[OurGhostsAreDifferent ghost]] and a [[OurVampiresAreDifferent vampire]], amongst others; Christine with her murderous deformed psycho is the most normal of them all) boyfriends/stalkers, this is impossible by their standards. [[spoiler:In her defense, the river ''was'' in the form of a human boy that looked her age at the time she fell for him.]]
* BigDamnHeroes: Or [[http://pika-la-cynique.deviantart.com/art/GND175-Big-Damn-Heroines-283928240 heroines]].
** In [[http://pika-la-cynique.deviantart.com/#/d5u0sjx 215]], [[spoiler: Jareth]] for [[spoiler: Sarah and Luna]].
* BiggerOnTheInside: Jareth's wardrobe reaches (almost) to Narnia.
* BlueAndOrangeMorality: As a Fae, Jareth is technically outside of the standard morality spectrum, which is why Aziraphale and Crowley can't really do anything about his shenanigans when Sarah complains. Observing him with Heaven/Hell's tech only results in the [[{{Literature/Discworld}} ++CUCUMBER ERROR++]] as well.
* BoundAndGagged: Sarah, our darling DistressedDamsel.
* BrainBleach: Exactly what Christine calls for when [[spoiler:Jadis hooks up with ''[[Film/{{Legend}} Satan]]'']].
** And [[http://pika-la-cynique.deviantart.com/art/GND39-Halloween-prequel2-102070423 this]] when picturing [[Theatre/ThePhantomOfTheOpera Erik]] as a basement dwelling {{otaku}}.
-->'''[[Theatre/ThePhantomOfTheOpera Christine]]: '''"[[Franchise/SailorMoon Moon Healing Power]] erase the bad mental images!!"
** And Erik [[http://pika-la-cynique.deviantart.com/art/GND188-Standard-Joys-of-Cohabitation-308079127 here]] because of the new hobby of his roommate.
-->'''[[Theatre/ThePhantomOfTheOpera Erik]]: '''"Cannot unsee!!"
** The readers several times. Oh, the comic is Safe For Work, but things like [[TooMuchInformation Nanny Ogg in party mode]] are not for the faint of heart.
* BreakingTheFourthWall:
** The girls are pretty sure that that LesYay Outtake wasn't in continuity.
** Jareth does so at the end of "The One With the Kiss".
** [[Literature/GoodOmens Crowley and Aziraphale]] tend to do this all the time. [[LordOfTheRings Legolas]] has bouts of this too.
** Sarah, for whatever reason, has a video copy of [[Film/{{Labyrinth}} her movie]].
** Christine has mentioned the largely fan-reviled proposed sequel to [[AndrewLloydWebber ALW's]] musical.
* BrickJoke: Back in [[http://pika-la-cynique.deviantart.com/art/GirlsNextDoor35-Relapse-99498365 comic #35]], Sarah wrangles a promise from Erik to wake her up if she's ever found wandering towards a certain person's room in her sleep. [[spoiler: 2 years and 93 comics later, she gets a [[http://pika-la-cynique.deviantart.com/art/GND128-Things-Remembered-196766059 rather rude awakening]].]]
* CallBack: The [[http://pika-la-cynique.deviantart.com/art/GND-Outtake-Midsummer-Yuri-168925787 outtake]] gets one [[http://pika-la-cynique.deviantart.com/art/GND179-Monster-Hunters-Part-I-The-Dresden-File-291546572 here]]. This page also has a ShoutOut to ''Franchise/StarWars'' and KatyPerry.
* CallingYourAttacks: Luna has to when she uses magic in battle. She is nice contrast to Sarah's [[ScreamingWarrior random shouting]].
* TheCameo: Abundant during the MasqueradeBall. Notable couples popping up in the background include [[Series/DoctorWho Ten and Rose, Vastra and Jenny,]] [[{{Series/Heroes}} Hiro and Charlie]], and [[{{Series/Firefly}} Wash and Zoe]].
* CaptainObvious: Legolas
* ChildrenAreAWaste: [[spoiler:Jadis]] thinks this, at least about her own. She even sent a Christmas card addressed to the "Despised waste of genes". She apparently also contemplated OffingTheOffspring but decided against it because she [[ForTheEvulz likes to see him suffer]].
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: Luna Lovegood. All the goblins.
* CluckingFunny: As a ''{{Film/Labyrinth}}'' fanfic random chickens appear naturally and also In-universe the characters found a lot of humor in Jareth's [[WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes chicken phobia]] and the Chicken Coup that caused it. But as it turned out there was a [[http://pika-la-cynique.deviantart.com/art/GND212-Chick-en-Magnet-348889624 good]] [[http://pika-la-cynique.deviantart.com/art/GND213-Blikkin-Blitz-350422055 reason]] for this. Yes. The chickens of the [[MagicalLand Labyrinth]] plot to take over the kingdom and maybe even the world.
* CompensatingForSomething: Jareth thinks this (he says it [[http://pika-la-cynique.deviantart.com/art/GirlsNextDoor41-Glitterwars-103318768 here]]) about [[HornedHumanoid Darkness]]' horns. His mother seems to disagree.
* CreditsGag: TheRant has credits for all appearing characters, now, for example Legolas is always credited as Leg{{Creator/orlando|Bloom}}, the Rabbit as ''Dread Creature of the Cave of Caerbannock, aka Bunny'' or ''Music/LadyGaga <© crossed out> IS A FREE BITCH, BABY.''
* CutenessProximity: Jareth uses his owl form as a means to get close to Sarah on occasion; when she [[SubvertedTrope doesn't]] react to the sad fluffy owl on her windowsill, he knows he's screwed up big time.
* CutHisHeartOutWithASpoon: [[http://pika-la-cynique.deviantart.com/art/GND92-DRAMATIC-TWIST-149460554 Here]] Jareth threatens Erik with magicking all the songs of MileyCyrus into Christine's head if he [[spoiler: doesn't let Sarah go]]. [[http://pika-la-cynique.deviantart.com/art/GND95-What-goes-around-152656745 Later]], he uses a rather elaborate threat about how he'll stop Webber before he makes the musical (leaving Erik with only his literary characterization). There are also frequent threats of bogging (being thrown "headfirst into the bog of eternal stench") from Jareth and Sarah.
* DamselInDistress: Mostly averted. {{Lampshaded}} in [[http://Pika-la-Cynique.deviantart.com/art/GND93-Distressing-Damsels-150320692 this comic]].
* DidWeJustHaveTeaWithCthulhu: Sarah got roped into Jareth's family celebrations at times. This also bordered on CaptiveDate arranged by his mother.
* DidYouJustScamCthulhu: Sarah made Jadis disappear by introducing her to Darkness so she manipulated two supernatural beings to get what she wants... it didn't work the way she [[LetsYouAndHimFight intended]] but still [[UnholyMatrimony worked]].
* DistractedByTheSexy: Christine when Beowulf appeared. Jareth several times ("Since when can you not tell blond from brunette, Jareth...?" "Ohh, silver lining.")
* DramaticIrony: Sarah has a crush on Music/DavidBowie, while Christine has a crush on [[ThreeHundred Leonidas]], but could very well have a crush on Creator/GerardButler. If you don't get the joke, look up the actors of their respective [[StalkerWithACrush stalkers]].
** Almost {{Lampshaded}} when Christine thought it was weird that Sarah likes [[Music/DavidBowie him]], but couldn't understand why.
* DramaticWind: Jareth likes to conjure one of these up now and then. Particularly when he's trying to convince Sarah to team up with him in a game of Risk.
* EverythingsBetterWithDinosaurs: Toby got a free birthday wish from Jareth once. A [[CheerfulChild six year old]] + MakeAWish + FairFolk - EquivalentExchange / BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor = '''DINOSAUR'''!!!
** The goblins also (correctly) identified it as giant naked chikin'!)
* EverythingsSquishierWithCephalopods: Christine found a watcher in the lake (according to Legolas) or maybe a young Kraken (according to James) or a mini-Cthulhu (according to Pika)... in her bathwater.
** It also broke Erik's brain.
** [[AllAnimeIsNaughtyTentacles Well]], he is an {{Otaku}}.
* ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin: [[http://Pika-la-Cynique.deviantart.com/art/GND68-The-One-With-The-Kiss-126045509 The One With the Kiss]]
* ExpressiveMask: Erik's mask. Seen [[http://pika-la-cynique.deviantart.com/art/GND122-Happiness-and-Homicide-179376030 here]].
* EyesDoNotBelongThere: Said almost word-for-word by Jareth when he encounters [[PansLabyrinth the Pale Man]], who apparently [[http://pika-la-cynique.deviantart.com/art/GND109-Lost-in-translation-164563851 followed Ofelia]].
---> Jareth: Sarah! What a nice surpriiiiiEYES where there shouldn't be!
* FanonDiscontinuity: InUniverse. ''Theatre/LoveNeverDies'' never happened according to Theatre/ThePhantomOfTheOpera characters, [[BerserkButton most prominently]] Christine.
* FanVid: See the {{Franchise/Buildingverse}} page for a list.
* FinaglesLaw: The Apartment has a fail field surrounding it, so anything that should be awesome... isn't. Like when [[Literature/{{Twilight}} Edward Cullen]] happened upon the Barbecue for Toby's birthday... (In trope terms: "The perversity of nature" is good friends with the RuleOfFunny but has some serious grudge against the RuleOfDrama and the RuleOfCool).
* FlatJoy: Sir. Dydimus' "Huzzah." on Ambrosius bringing back the talking hat.
* FourthWallObserver:
** Aziraphael and Crowley, to the point that they essentially call out the comic on being ''too'' meta in [[http://pika-la-cynique.deviantart.com/gallery/772068?offset=96#/d29aki5 one strip]].
** Aziraphale also freaks out over the "{{continuity}}!!!" because of the invoked TimeSkip (Crowley doesn't seem to mind).
** Jareth seems to not only fully understand that this is a comic but is actually reading it.
* FunnyBackgroundEvent: In [[http://pika-la-cynique.deviantart.com/art/GND88-Latte-and-Sympathy-144672693?q=gallery%3Apika-la-cynique%2F772068&qo=150 88]], Sarah takes Erik out for coffee and advice while [[DoctorHorriblesSingAlongBlog a certain failed heist]] can be seen through the cafe window.
* TheGadfly: Let's just say that because a great part of the Phandom would hate whatever Raoul might do, he developed quite the trolling habit.
* GeographicFlexibility: Named as Sudden Geography explained in [[http://pika-la-cynique.deviantart.com/art/GND223-Approaching-Skittish-Wildlife-373517108 this]] artist comment. Apparently it also adjusts any traveling speed to [[TravelingAtTheSpeedOfPlot the speed of plot]].
* GirlScoutsAreEvil: Or at least {{Jerkass}}es. For their misfortune Erik qualifies as RetiredMonster and didn't take their [[MuggingTheMonster antics]] too well, so he introduced them to the [[HumanoidAbomination Pale]] [[ImAHumanitarian Man]].
** How this changed later depends on what you think about the Pale Man's new brownie sash.
* GISSyndrome: Some panels have photo backgrounds of unknown origin. Like Raoul's apartment in Paris.
* GratuitousForeignLanguage: Pika doesn't really believe in the TranslationConvention. So we had:
** GratuitousFrench: For obvious reasons, the French characters ''a lot'' of times. Also SurprisinglyGoodForeignLanguage, since the author lives in France.
*** ForeignCussWord: The most common use of French in the comic.
** GratuitousIrish: [[http://pika-la-cynique.deviantart.com/art/GirlsNextDoor42-No-Vacancy-103984911 Prince Nuada]]. This was admittedly Google.
** GratuitousPolish: [[http://pika-la-cynique.deviantart.com/art/GND184-Monster-Hunters-Part-V-Card-tricks-299648469 Geralt of Rivia]]. This was translated by one of the fans. According to other fans, it has some grammatical problems.
*** Actually, it's mostly just a [[AnachronismStew combination of modern and old-fashioned speech]], which is not too different from the way [[TheWitcher the books]] are written.
** GratuitousSpanish: [[http://pika-la-cynique.deviantart.com/art/GND109-Lost-in-translation-164563851 Ofelia]]. According to comments, this is SurprisinglyGoodForeignLanguage too.
* IdeaBulb: [[StarWars Leia]] gets an idea lightsaber [[http://pika-la-cynique.deviantart.com/art/GND174-Kablooie-Part-II-282756436 here]].
* IfYouEverDoAnythingToHurtHer: Erik tries to use this on Raoul [[http://pika-la-cynique.deviantart.com/art/GND182-Entr-acte-Reprise-297084764 here]]. It turns out that always acting like MurderIsTheBestSolution [[SubvertedTrope lessens the effect]].
* 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.)
* InsistentTerminology: Jareth (and fae in general) don't pout / sulk they ''Glower Ominously''.
* IsThatCuteKidYours: "[[PansLabyrinth She]] says she's a princess of the Underground and that her father is the king in the castle past the Labyrinth. ''Doubtless'' [[ICanExplain you can explain]]."
* KillerRabbit: The one and only [[Film/MontyPythonAndTheHolyGrail Dread Creature of the Cave of Caerbannock]], aka [[FluffyTheTerrible Bunny]].
* LaserGuidedAmnesia: [[http://pika-la-cynique.deviantart.com/gallery/772068?offset=48#/d2jy9ox Inflicted upon Raoul]] after he endures a very long, unpleasant day. The dubious morality of this is {{lampshaded}}.
-->"[Aziraphael and Crowley are] having a long and convoluted debate about whether wiping his memories of today would be a good or a bad thing. If they come to the conclusion that it's a kindness, [[MindOverManners Azi will take care of it]]. If they decide it's wrong and deceitful, [[BadGuysDoTheDirtyWork Crowley will]]."
** The next time Raoul is subjected to this, Christine only comments on the potential health risks a second mind wipe may or may not cause.
* LetsJustBeFriends: Christine to Erik, as she tells Sarah [[http://pika-la-cynique.deviantart.com/art/GND154-Twisted-Every-Way-256013327 here]].
* LighterAndSofter: Despite having R-rated villains and some frank talk of intimate relations, it is this in relation to its successor because it plays said villains for humor, and tends to skim over the darker plots of ''Roommates''. The "Dreams" arc was given a very brief, much more lighthearted alternate plot, and the proper arc is only vaguely alluded to.
* LongDistanceRelationship: Raoul/Christine. As stated, Christine lives in the "secret" university town where the apartment is and Raoul lives in Paris (with Arsčne Lupin).
* LoveTriangle:
** TriangRelations type 4, possibly type 7, between Raoul, Christine and Erik.
** Pretty much any guy Sarah wants to be involved with besides Jareth. [[spoiler: Look, there's even a [[http://pika-la-cynique.deviantart.com/gallery/772068?offset=72#/d1qo9z2 quadrangle!]]]]
* MagicalGirlfriend: Gender flipped. Having a magical (or at least weirdo) boyfriend (or [[StalkerWithACrush stalker]]) is the requirement to join the ''Wibsy'' clique. The trope is even referenced in the artist comment where they appear... with special mention that the DistaffCounterpart boy's club is found in Japan.
* MakeOutKids:
** Christine/Raoul, when they are together, are disturbingly physical and unbearably [[SickeninglySweethearts cute]].
** Jadis/Darkness horrify everyone with this.
* ManicPixieDreamGirl: Or something to that effect; referenced in the form of a [[http://pika-la-cynique.deviantart.com/art/GND191-Canny-Human-Dream-Girl-312538623 Canny Human Dream Girl]], because Jareth himself has the [[TheFairFolk Manic Pixie]] part down.
* MassiveMultiplayerCrossover: ''Theatre/ThePhantomOfTheOpera'', ''Film/{{Labyrinth}}'', ''Literature/GoodOmens'', ''Theatre/LesMiserables'', ''Franchise/PiratesOfTheCaribbean'', ''Film/SweeneyToddTheDemonBarberOfFleetStreet'', ''Film/TheLordOfTheRings'' and ''many'' more. Seems like every fiction in existence has a door leading to the ''{{Franchise/Buildingverse}}'' (and back).
* MayDecemberRomance: Played with as the characters lean on the FourthWall. Jareth is a fairy tale kind from... a long time ago. Sarah is in college... and was 15 in 1986, and had at least one date with [[spoiler: Jacob Black]], definitely a teenager.
* MediumAwareness: Outside of the occasional bout of fourth wall breakage, the characters are seemingly aware they're in a humor comic, and will sometimes [[LampshadeHanging comment on it.]]
* TheMissusAndTheEx: James' meet as FunnyBackgroundEvent [[http://pika-la-cynique.deviantart.com/art/GND173-Kablooie-Part-I-281495579 here]]... and they don't get along well.
* MomentKiller: [[http://pika-la-cynique.deviantart.com/art/GND37-Paging-Captain-Obvious-100712083 Legolas]], [[http://pika-la-cynique.deviantart.com/art/GND58-the-Date-concluded-117763815 Nanny Ogg]] also [[http://pika-la-cynique.deviantart.com/art/GND217-blocked-355494092 Luna Lovegood]] (She can PLOT-block [[UpToEleven whole adventure-romance storylines]]).
* MoodWhiplash: Not quite as pronounced as ''Roommates'', but it happens. See for example [[http://pika-la-cynique.deviantart.com/art/GND211-Brink-343612286?q=gallery%3Apika-la-cynique%2F772028&qo=12 211]], which begins with a pretty intense discussion on why AMatchMadeInStockholm really isn't a viable option and ends with Nanny Ogg smacking Jareth on the seat of his criminally tight pants.
** The main difference is: ''GND'' uses this trope to ease drama with humor, while ''Roommates'' can whiplash in any way possible.
* MundaneLuxury: Christine deeply appreciates 20th. century plumbing.
* MurderTheHypotenuse: Erik tried to do this so many times it became a running gag.
* MyFriendsAndZoidberg / LadiesAndGerms: "[[http://pika-la-cynique.deviantart.com/art/GND113-Transylvariant-opinions-170382662 Ladies, gentlemen, Jareth...]]"
* NakedPeopleAreFunny: It's noted [[http://pika-la-cynique.deviantart.com/art/GND228-Standard-Joys-of-Cohabitation-II-394354036 here]] that Sarah being confronted with people (usually men) in the altogether has become something of an unintentional RunningGag.
* NarratingThePresent / NarratingTheObvious: Legolas is prone to do this in his usual CaptainObvious way. Also, Grave Robber did it [[http://pika-la-cynique.deviantart.com/art/GND188-Standard-Joys-of-Cohabitation-308079127 here]]. Legolas was not amused.
* NegatedMomentOfAwesome: The {{Negated|MomentOfAwesome}} and OffscreenMomentOfAwesome tropes are more or less running gags in the comic (blame the Fail Field). A couple of examples include:
** Erik's "plan" to thwart Jareth during the [[spoiler:kidnapped Sarah arc]]. Said plan included the use of [[NoodleImplements salt and deadly black chikins]], of which Jareth is known to be very afraid. ... but Jareth chose the direct approach never setting off the trap.
** Jareth's planned fight against Peter from Heroes for Sarah's love. ... Which never comes because thanks to Peter(s) and a bunch of goblins the date ends disastrously and Sarah wows to never see the guy again.
* NeverWakeUpASleepwalker: Erik advises Sarah not to wake Christine when she finds her sleepwalking toward his room for some late-night music lessons. Sarah dryly informs him that modern science has disproved that notion, then makes him promise to forget the potential trauma and just dump a bucket of cold water on her if he ever finds her sleepwalking toward Jareth's room. See BrickJoke for the follow-up.
* NeverLiveItDown: InUniverse: Mrs. Lovett calls the others out on this when they panic at finding she's been the chef for the BBQ. She asks why she'd even need to murder with a Wal-Mart nearby.
* NoodleIncident: Sarah's prom photos. Arguably, the chikins. Also: Erik's Sushi Incident.
** The chikins have been more explained as time has gone on, especially after the events of Sarah and Luna's Labyrinth excursion.
* NoSenseOfDirection: Sarah can mess up where "right under us" is.
* NoSenseOfPersonalSpace:
--> '''Sarah''': "PERSONAL SPACE, JARETH! GET WITH THE NOTION!"
* NotDistractedByTheSexy: Sarah. Meeting Beowulf, she only blushed for one panel or so and kept eye contact with him despite his [[MaleFrontalNudity lack of attire]]. The viewers were spared thanks to {{Pixellation}}. ''Poor'' Christine [[DistractedByTheSexy not so much]].
* NotProven: Jareth's involvement in any shenanigans and pranks. Like [[http://pika-la-cynique.deviantart.com/art/GND195-Not-Cool-324090803 here]].
--> '''Sarah''': "Gip, please tell the Goblin King that if I find hard evidence he is doing this he is '''so''' dead. And in the meantime he's to knock it off before I invite his '''[[AnIcePerson Mot]][[EvilMatriarch her]]''' back here."
* NotSoDifferent: It's been noted how, for all her denial, Sarah seems to have developed quite a few similar characteristics to the Goblin King. Christine lampshades it by mentioning how well Sarah [[BigScrewedUpFamily will fit in with]] [[http://pika-la-cynique.deviantart.com/gallery/772068?offset=192#/d21qu2a Jareth's family]].
* OfCorsetsSexy: Jareth catches Sarah while she's playing dress-up in Christine's undergarments. That particular comic page is a fan favorite, having spawned at least one fic on deviantART.
* OffscreenMomentOfAwesome: More or less running gags in the comic (together with NegatedMomentOfAwesome). A couple of examples include:
** The off-screen fight between Jareth and Frank-N-Furter, which many readers imagine to be an epic thrown-down of glittery madness.
** The Chikin' Coup, which also evolved into a NoodleIncident. (Yes. It sounds ridiculous. But it caused a FairFolk to develop [[WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes chicken phobia]]!)
** The battle between [[WebVideo/DoctorHorriblesSingAlongBlog Bad Horse]] and the [[Advertising/TheManYourManCouldSmellLike Old Spice Guy]] which was probably CrazyAwesome.
* OhMyGods / ThankTheMaker: "[[Creator/JimHenson Jim above]] preserve us," from Jareth and also from him "Oh, sweet Jim, Creator/{{George|Lucas}} and Creator/{{Brian|Froud}}".
* {{Otaku}}: It's rarely touched upon, but ''[[Theatre/ThePhantomOfTheOpera Erik]]'' likes anime. He once tried to get Christine to dress as Franchise/SailorMoon for [[http://pika-la-cynique.deviantart.com/gallery/772068?offset=144#/d1orq1j Halloween.]] He also has shades of BasementDweller, despite having an apartment on the third floor.
* [[OverprotectiveDad Overprotective Uncle]]: [[http://pika-la-cynique.deviantart.com/art/GND193-Family-Values-II-318297937 Sarah's uncle]], [[spoiler: [[Film/TheAvengers Agent Phil Coulson]]]], who assures her that he can arrange to have any boy who bothers her sent to Guantanamo (or a "magic-proofed pocket parallel dimension," if necessary) and makes a note to get her a set of tasers like [[spoiler: Natasha]] uses. Pika even describes him as being "made of overprotective awesome to Sarah in contrast to her somewhat absent-minded, harried father."
* PassThePopcorn: The other tenants' reaction to the RooftopConfrontation drama.
* PortalPicture: Looks like Jareth has a [[http://pika-la-cynique.deviantart.com/art/GND148-Distraction-no-Jutsu-243649636 Portal Mirror]] in his room.
* PowerPerversionPotential: Jareth has [[SurveillanceAsThePlotDemands magical scrying powers]] and {{stalker|WithACrush}} tendencies. Yes. He uses that power to [[PeepingTom spy on the girls in the bath / shower]] (he isn't even [[ChivalrousPervert that picky]]). He also seems to preserve his more [[EroticDream interesting]] dreams in crystals. As Pika pointed out it's more stylish than a PornStash. And uses his minions [[PantyThief to steal Sarah's underwear]].
* [[ThisIsForEmphasisBitch Precision B Strike]]: [[http://pika-la-cynique.deviantart.com/gallery/772068?offset=48#/d28rdp2 GND 77 - R.o.t.K., b:tch]]
* PsychicLink: Jareth and Sarah share a mild mental connection made stronger in the Dreaming. Sarah is shown able to sense a simple [[http://pika-la-cynique.deviantart.com/art/GND144-Royal-Weddings-214397649 wedding-fantasy]], and something more complex (like say a [[http://pika-la-cynique.deviantart.com/gallery/#/d549qp2 would-be-sex dream]]) overrides her higher thought processes. This connection goes both ways.
* ReadingAheadInTheScript: At least Jareth can do this. He even decided once that he doesn't like parts of the script and so just skipped those pages.
* RecursiveFanfiction: This is a ''Webcomic/{{Roommates}}'' SpinOff, which is a MassiveMultiplayerCrossover [[FanFic fan]][[{{Webcomic}} comic]]. (Let us not even delve into what the fanfics for this series are.)
* RecursiveReality: The characters come from stories that were real for them but are fictional in the world of the comic (as are all of the people responsible). The comic is fictional in our world, and they [[MediumAwareness know this]]. And it's implied that it's possible to [[ReadingAheadInTheScript read the comic]] [[RecursiveCanon in the comic]]. Is there a true reality? Does the chain of fictionality ever end? We don't know. [[BreakingTheFourthWall You reading this]] [[FridgeHorror could be fictional in some other world/story too]].
* RodentsOfUnusualSize: The original R.O.U.S. from ''Film/ThePrincessBride''.
* RooftopConfrontation: There is an [[StoryArc arc]] titled "ROOFTOP DRAMATICS!".
* RunningGag: The prom photos, Owl!Jareth, Erik's hatred of glitter, the chikins.
** Also that of various things appearing in Christine's mirror that are not Erik.
** Sarah's David Bowie obsession--and her complete obliviousness as to why that is.
* SarcasmBlind: Luna Lovegood. Curios ability in a WorldOfSnark, also it highlights her [[TheIngenue niceness and naiveté]].
* ScreamingWarrior: Sarah's battle style involves shouting random stuff while kicking ass. Mostly things that could [[IShallTauntYou insult / infuriate]] her opposition, like the names of chicken related food when fighting the dreaded chickin' revolutionaries [[http://pika-la-cynique.deviantart.com/art/GND213-Blikkin-Blitz-350422055 here]].
* ScrewThisImOuttaHere: [[TheFairFolk Fair Folk]] TricksterArchetype + MadArtist GadgeteerGenius x EscalatingWar = [[http://pika-la-cynique.deviantart.com/art/GND188-Standard-Joys-of-Cohabitation-308079127 everybody else clears the general vicinity]].
* SesquipedalianLoquaciousness: Christine is prone to the "gets more (and more and more and more) wordy in emotion fueled [[CharacterFilibuster rants]]" type.
* ShipSinking: The Paris arc pretty much takes Erik/Christine off the table, with Christine's official stance being that although she has (''very'' complicated) feelings for Erik, Raoul is the person she can be herself with rather than just TheMuse and for that [[SingleWomanSeeksGoodMan among other reasons]] she chooses to be with him.
* ShipperOnDeck: Christine is a Sarah/Jareth fangirl. She also [[YaoiFangirl seems to ship]] [[spoiler:Javert/Valjean.]]
** Outside the story, it has been stated that Sarah has a soft spot for Christine/Erik, but is too good of a best friend to go mucking about in Christine's relationship business.
* ShoutOut: [[http://pika-la-cynique.deviantart.com/art/GND175-Big-Damn-Heroines-283928240 River Tam]] [[http://xkcd.com/311/ Beats Up Everyone]].
* SpyCatsuit: Christine has one that Sarah also borrowed at times. Also we don't know where Legolas' came from.
* StalkerWithACrush: Both Jareth and Erik.
* StatingTheSimpleSolution: Luna takes it a step further in "****-Blocked", casually performing the simple solution to finding Jareth's stolen RequisiteRoyalRegalia ("Accio pendant.") and thus completely destroying "the set up of what was sure to be an epic adventure-romance-hurt/comfort-quest type fanfic."
* TakeAThirdOption: The 200th page speshul, quite literally. In the poll for this speshul ''The Box'' and ''The Prom Pictures'' options won, but the characters didn't want either... so they so [[WeNeedADistraction counted on]] the readers being distracted by fanservice. (Which "accidentally" was the 3rd most chosen poll option.)
* TangledFamilyTree: Jareth's inexplicable relation to pretty much every magical blond in fiction ([[TheChroniclesOfNarnia Jadis]] is his mom, [[Film/{{Hellboy}} 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.
* TemptingFate: Sarah actually [[InvokedTrope invokes]] the trope so it'll be subverted when she decides to rummage 'round Jareth's room, since doing so makes it predictable and thus not funny. [[spoiler: [[DoubleSubversion It doesn't work]].]]
* TerribleIntervieweesMontage: The Monster Hunter Interview pages. The applicants range from [[Anime/{{Pokemon}} Ash]] (perfectly hopeless) to Harry Dresden (too [[PlayingWithFire destructive]]) and seem to end with Beowulf (too [[ChekhovsGag late]]).
* TheThingThatWouldNotLeave: The Pale Man in the boys kitchen for 100 or so pages.
* ThinksLikeARomanceNovel: Many of the more romantic characters, but Jareth deserves a special mention as he more appropriately thinks like a {{Shipping}} Fic when it comes to his relationship with Sarah[[note]]Yes. After a fight he complained about the lack of an "[[SlapSlapKiss anger fueled make-out session]]".[[/note]]. Sarah's oppinion: "Eurgh. [[YouWatchTooMuchX Whatever you've been reading, you shouldn't be]]."
* 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]].
* TookALevelInJerkass: Many of the characters, particularly in comparison to ''Webcomic/{{Roommates}}''. [[RuleOfDrama Justified]], seeing that ''Webcomic/GirlsNextDoor'' is far less {{Meta|Fiction}}-based, and much of the plot is [[SlidingScaleOfPlotVersusCharacters driven by the characters' interactions]]. Through RuleOfFunny and more gradual CharacterDevelopment focusing on the four main characters (and less {{Mind Screw}}y storylines), ''Webcomic/GirlsNextDoor'' [[TropesAreNotBad manages to land on the favorable side of this trope.]] Also Raoul compared to his canonical iteration, but he is still just TheGadfly.
* TradeSnark: Jareth when describing Legolas' {{narrating|TheObvious}} as "[[DeadpanSnarker Wisdom]] of the Eldar(™)" [[http://pika-la-cynique.deviantart.com/art/GND37-Paging-Captain-Obvious-100712083 here]].
* TrenchcoatBrigade: Lampshaded [[http://pika-la-cynique.deviantart.com/art/GND178-Who-you-gonna-call-290328501 here]].
--> '''Sarah:''' "... that's a whole lot of [[BadassLongcoat leather dusters]]."
* TimeSkip: [[InvokedTrope Magically from the inside]], even if [[DownplayedTrope just a little]]. Jareth thought that pages 198-199 had too little {{fanservice}}, so we can very well skip right to 200. (Yes. This means that the comic doesn't have pages 198-199, and even #197 turns into an error message[[note]]19seeeev777.81191WTFfff++CUCUMBER ERROR++[[/note]].)
* TruthSerums: [[Literature/HarryPotter Veritaserum]]. Sarah used it to get information out of the goblins... and unwittingly caused Christine's LetsJustBeFriends speech.
* {{Tsundere}}: Sarah to Jareth, much as she loves to deny it.
* UnholyMatrimony: The Jadis/Darkness ship definitely qualifies. Also a GuessWhoImMarrying situation for Jareth as he loathes Darkness with passion.
* UnusualEuphemism: Swearing in the name of the bog ("bogdamn it"), mostly from Sarah. Also, WTF is the abbreviation of "What The Fae" around here.
* VideoPhone: Christine and Raoul keep in touch through internet video chat.
* VillainsOutShopping: And eating sushi, and having picnics, and [[http://pika-la-cynique.deviantart.com/art/GND46-GuitarSympatheticVillain-107272139?offset=20 playing video games]]...
* WeaponOfChoice: Erik has his [[ImprobableWeaponUser Punjab Lasso]], Norrington his [[HeroesPreferSwords sword]], Sweeney his [[KnifeNut razor]], Luna her MagicWand and Sarah since the ''Return to Labyrinth arc'' her FryingPanOfDoom (admittedly as shout out to the ''Such Stuff.. arc'' of ''{{Webcomic/Roommates}}'').
* WeirdnessCensor: The official answer to why the {{muggle}}s don't notice all the weirdness is because Aziraphale & Crowley keep up a SEP[[note]]"[[BystanderSyndrome someone else's problem]]"[[/note]] field around the building. Which apparently doesn't stop some muggles to date or run away from the resident weirdness.
* WhereTheHellIsSpringfield: Used to HandWave the issue of time differences during the Paris arc; since nobody is entirely sure where the Building and its environs actually ''are'' in relation to France, no sense in worrying they might be calling during the middle of the night there....
* WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes: Jareth is scared of black chikins. This is apparently the result of an attempted coup made by the smarter ones in his kingdom. He doesn't appreciate the humor the rest of the cast finds in it.
* WitchWithACapitalB: Jadis. Even Jareth gets "Son of a Witch" sometimes.
* WhatTheHellHero: Christine to Erik, after he kidnapped Sarah to force her hand in their pre-character development relationship.
* WithFriendsLikeThese: Everybody, but especially Jareth and Erik, who co-exist in a state of open warfare punctuated by occasional bouts of empathizing with each other's relationship drama.
* WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds: Erik during the Rooftop arc. That cafe scene with Sarah establishes the woobie factor... right before he snaps and backslides into a full-on BastardBoyfriend StalkerWithACrush.
* WorldOfSnark: It's easier to count the non-snarky characters: Luna, and arguably Legolas.
* WriterOnBoard: Pika's feminist views show in the comic. Mostly when she gleefully deconstructs many sexist tropes and lampshades at least as many more in the process. Also Christine's {{Character Filibuster}}s about things like the madness of AMatchMadeInStockholm / ScarpiaUltimatum could be very well interpreted as {{Author Filibuster}}s.
** She also makes it perfectly clear what she thinks about {{Literature/Twilight}} (and by extension sexist romances brim full with UnfortunateImplications; Their characters won't survive in the Fail Field) and {{Sequelitis}} ([[FanonDiscontinuity Never happened]]).
* WrittenByTheWinners: Averted and parodied. Sarah might be the winner, but "[[http://pika-la-cynique.deviantart.com/art/GND221-Public-Affairs-366413872 History is written by he, who rules despotically over the goblin scribes.]]"
* [[YouKnowImBlackRight You Know I'm Blind, Right?]]: Erik reacts to Jareth doing naked yoga by screaming "CANNOT UNSEE!" He's unfortunately standing next to [[Film/RepoTheGeneticOpera Mag]] at the time.

!!The Youtube Voiceover project provides examples of:

* LimitedAnimation: Very very limited... you could swear it's just static images with an occasional effect or zoom.
** It isn't?
** It is, but if someone would do some mouth animation it would be actually hard to tell as thanks to the dynamic editing looks more alive than some actual cartoons from the 70s-80s.
* VocalEvolution: As the cast is mostly non-professional it's not surprising that they get better and better as time goes by.

!!The Hungarian translation provides examples of:

* GratuitousEnglish: Some of the English is left unchanged. Mostly advertisement taglines and names of places (with subtitles if needed).
