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.

Indeed there are rules and she got what she asked for. Be careful what you wish for kiddos.

Okay, look.  I love the Goblin King, okay?  But just because there were rules doesn’t mean he wasn’t the villain.  Serial killers have rules.  Brutal dictators have rules.  The fact that his character was incredibly nuanced and that his motivations were ambiguous make him interesting, but doesn’t automatically default him to good. (And this is something that continuously drives me crazy about fandom interpretation of complicated bad guys.  Although it almost always seems to favor bad guys who are attractive men, and usually to the detriment of lady characters who oppose them.  Hmmm, I WONDER WHY.)Do you remember how he shortened her time when she was doing well?  Do you remember how he had little brownies changing the marks she made in the maze when she was trying to find her way?  Do you remember how he tried to trap her in a dream to slow her down?  None of those things were in the rules.  Abusive people set “rules” in relationships all the time.  It makes it appear as if the abused has some sort of control over how much they get hurt and manipulated.  “Don’t break my rules and you won’t get punished.”  Or, in other words, “Why you gotta make me hurt you?”  But those rules are illusions.  The abuser will always find a way to change things to their favor, and then use an air of reasonableness to convince the abused that it’s their fault.Well, the abused and, apparently, a bunch of people watching a fifteen-year-old girl get kicked around by a man who is a) much older and b) has literally all the power in the universe while she has only the power of fabulous hair and practical shoes and plucky nerve.AND THAT’S ANOTHER THING, don’t hate on Sarah to make Jareth look better.  First of all, Sarah was awesome.  She was smart.  She had nothing but the clothes on her back and what was in her pockets when she flung herself into an alternative dimension to save a kid she didn’t even really consider family.  And using only her wits, some plastic jewelry, lipstick, and the words of a book she had memorized, she defeated a powerful supernatural being in his own house.  She convinced his own oppressed people to fight against him.  She used the power of friendship and being a book nerd to take back what was hers and bring Jareth to his skinny David Bowie knees.  If you don’t think that’s INCREDIBLY RAD you can get the fuck out.Secondly, Jareth  loved Sarah to the point of obsession.  He wanted to possess her.  If you don’t think Jareth would condemn you to the deepest depths of the Oubliette or to wander the The Bog Of Eternal Stench forever for talking shit about her, you obviously were not watching the movie very closely.

“Please already love this portrayal of this character.” — DC Comics
4 Signs DC Comics Has No Clue How to Make Superhero Movies

#4. DC’s Doing the Exact Opposite of What Made Marvel Successful
DC wants a piece of The Avengers' 1.5-billion-dollar pie, except they don't have the time or patience for all that universe-building claptrap. For 2016's Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, the strategy appears to be “let’s make a bouillabaisse out of all our intellectual property.” Batman v Superman's seemingly pulling an Amazing Spider-Man 2 and throwing in new and unknown versions of Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg, and presumably the first big-screen appearance of Lady Cop.
So what’s the problem with this strategy? Only after DC has raked in the requisite $2 billion with both Batman v Superman and 2018’s Justice League will we likely see Wonder Woman or Aquaman in their own films.

look kiddos: due to tumblr’s half-baked tagging system (where only so many tags count towards actually categorizing a given post), tags on this site have evolved into an acceptable form of dispensing and sharing commentary, but that is not the case on other websites — ESPECIALLY AO3. tags on AO3 are intended to be functional, not conversational, and not only do excessive paragraphs of tags like these look patently ridiculous and sell your work short, they also make life harder for the site’s tag wranglers who volunteer their time to keep the tags organized so people can actually find your fic.

Garum —- The official condiment of the ancient Roman Empire

In the ancient Roman world a salty, oily condiment made from fermented fish guts took the Roman Empire by storm.  Called garum, it became an important commodity all over the empire, providing fats, protein, salts, vitamins, minerals, and most importantly flavor to places in the empire were little could be found.  Originally a Greek creation, the Roman obsession with garum would propel the fish sauce to become the most popular condiment in the Roman Empire.

Our modern society is a very wasteful society, we take it for granted that we can just use something and throw it away.  However, our ancestors had a completely different attitude.  Nothing went to waste and everything was put to use.  “Waste not, want not” was not simply a saying, but a mantra that meant life or death, prosperity or disaster for ancient people’s.  So if an animal was slaughtered, it was guaranteed that every part was consumed or used in some way. 

Garum was a result of this culture.  When the fishmongers gutted the daily catch, the guts, scales, and other inedible parts were not merely thrown away, rather they were gathered by the garum maker.  The guts were coated with salt, layered in large urns, and left out to heat in the sun for one to three months.  During this time the ingredients would liquefy and ferment, forming a thick paste.  When ready, a clear amber colored fluid would separate for the thicker material.  This clear fluid was pure garum, and was skimmed, bolted, and sold for a hefty price.  The skimming of more fluid would lead to cloudier and less pure forms of garum, which were much cheaper.  The remaining paste was called “allum”, and was sold as a budget “poor mans garum sauce”.  All grades of garum were flavored with different herbs and spices, depending on local tastes.

Because the Roman Empire was centered in the Mediterranean, the Roman economy was also heavily dependent on fishing.  Numerous fisheries and ports dotted all along the Mediterranean coast, and where there fisheries, there were garum makers.  Usually, however, the garum makers were relegated to the outskirts of a city, as the process of garum making tended to create an enormous stench.  Garum itself became one of the most important commodities of the Roman world, being shipped all over Europe, the Middle East, and North Africa.  It was issued regularly as rations for Roman soldiers and was even accepted as money.  Garum was also valued for its medicinal value; used to treat dog bites, diarrhea, ulcers, dysentery, to remove unwanted hair, and to remove freckles.

Alas the fall of the Roman Empire would lead to the fall of garum, especially as Germanic peoples who turned their noses at fermented fish sauce settled Europe and carved out kingdoms from the former Roman Empire.  Today garum still can be found, though only produced by small business who cater to specialty gourmet foods.  At around the same time the Romans were making garum, peoples in Southeast Asia were making a remarkably similar fish sauce called  nước mắm, which today is still widely popular in Vietnamese, Thai, and Cambodian cuisine.
