Freema looks like a goddess

Modern fae court.  Freema as the Queen of Autumn, ruler of liminal spaces and all things ethereal, with the power to suspend time but the weakness of fragility, for all things in her season die and empty and hollow, in the end.  David as her loyal knight, the only Court’s Knight who uses no weapons and is ten times the more powerful for it and who for a thousand years has never let anyone lay a finger on his Queen.

The oldest and longest-lasting of the courts, for they are too wise to get involved in wars and too clever and good at hiding to be drawn in to conflict without their permission.

Here’s another photo from the Cartoon Art Museum's Sandman exhibit (held earlier this year). Sandman issue no. 8 is widely regarded as being a key issue in the Sandman series, for it introduces the reader to Dream's sister, Death.

More photos are forthcoming.

You are a thinking, feeling human, two related but astonishingly different miracles of human awareness that arise from organic soups of neurotransmitters and hormones and amino acids bumping into one another. You have a different soup from the…

He is, however, perfectly willing to fuck with time and reality.
And also steal your infants.

He didn’t steal anything. She literally asked him to take the baby. Don’t make him the bad guy just because she was a shitty sister.

I think you are severely misinformed as to how baby ownership works.
It was not her baby to give.
David Bowie is unquestionably the villain.

Which do you think existed first, modern custody legislature, or the goblin king? 
The girl was entrusted by her parents with the care and custody of the child. By the laws governing the goblin king and his transactions, the girl was the current rightful owner of the child and made a deal with the king to take the child. Perhaps you’re not familiar with english folklore. Fae have rules, they’re tricksters, they can be sneaky, but they never break the rules.

Slammin’ it down in the Labyrinth fandom tonight, kids.

Children, children. Yes, he was playing by the rules, and yes, he gets to be the villain. In lit crit, you get to have your cake and eat it too!
And then run away from it when it turns into a whirling tunnel cleaner death machine.
That analogy got away from me a bit. And is now chasing me down a hallway brb

OH MY GOD are people really getting buttmad about calling David Bowie in Labrynth the villain
sure, she asked him to take the baby, but she clearly didn’t know that fairies were like, a real thing? and he could have just NOT TAKEN THE BABY, he could have done that. Christ. “Abloobloobloo fae have laws” what a nerd. He’s the villain. It’s a MOVIE. IT’S A KIDS MOVIE. HE’S THE VILLAIN. 

We have laws too! And this is clearly an unconscionable contract because Sarah is a) probably a minor and b) completely unaware that she is actually entering into a contract! You can’t actually make a contract with someone when you have reasonable grounds to believe that they don’t exist.
Who was it I was talking with a while back about fae lawyers? I’m pretty sure any fae lawyer worth their salt could get judgment for the plaintiff in the Unseelie Supreme Court.
I understand that this is contrary to the spirit of missv’s entirely valid “it’s a kids’ movie you nerds” point, but I’m not averse to fighting nerd with nerd.

Point A is correct.  She is 15 at the time of the events that happened.
However, point B?  It can be safe to assume that while she was not sure Jareth existed, she knew of his existence.
" A pan of Sarah’s room at the start of the film shows that she has a number of children’s books on her shelves, including The Wizard Of Oz, Alice’s Adventures In Wonderland and Maurice Sendak’s Outside Over There. The reading material shown in Sarah’s room indicates that she has a love of fairy-tales and fantasy, a trait that is also suggested by the fact she is first seen rehearsing a play in pseudo-medieval costume."
"Prior to encountering Jareth directly, Sarah knows him solely as a character in the play The Labyrinth. When she first comes face to face with him, she is terrified and begs him to return her brother…"
So with the above in mind, she has a clue about how contracts with fae beings work, if only from having read about them extensively.

I found a place where people take Jim Henson movies more seriously than I do.
Tumblr is a wonderful, terrifying place.

The fact that this post exist with all these comments makes me so happy.
But yeah for real. Even if you read up on original faerie folklore just a little bit, you’ll quickly find that they don’t give any fucks for mortal rules and laws. They got their own that makes perfect sense to them. But to us? IT’S ILLOGICAL. 

I’d say Jareth had a legal obligation to take the baby.

Faerie laws are great and all, but if they aren’t recognized in Sarah’s municipality, which in this case I’m guessing is meant to be in upstate New York, then not only is Jareth’s claim to the baby not recognized but he’s actually committed several crimes in trying to enforce his ‘contract’.  And seeing as there’s no longer any basis in common law for faerie contracts to be valid, this being set in the 20th century when the concept of faeries and other supernatural creatures are assumed to not exist for the purposes of criminal justice…The only real defense I can see for Jareth is that he can likely reason diplomatic immunity being the sovereign of a country that the US has no diplomatic relationship with.  I’m guessing that the Department of State isn’t inclined to assume that foreign sovereigns have no protections under the law until we create a formal relationship with them.  That said, we also wouldn’t stop Sarah from marching right into Jareth’s city and taking back what’s hers.

Now I want a story where the US government gets fed up about fae stealing babies and goes all War on Terror with the Faerie Courts. And the fae are all, “Whut?”

Such a story would be hilarious.
