Jareth's wish, spilled desperately across chapped lips, was stolen away on the wind before it fully formed. Utterly and miserably alone, he lay down on the ice, hoping it all would be over soon.

He awoke to cold blue skies threatening precipitation, and found himself leaning heavily against something at once solid and yielding. Roused from frozen stupor, he reflexively gripped the arm that held him like one shocked back from the dead. Her name caught on his tongue like an epitaph.

“S-Sarah?” How she'd possibly found him in in this heaven-forsaken land he'd never know.

The answering confirmation of soft lips pressed against his temple was the first semblance of warmth he'd felt since time out of mind. Her cheek against his as she cradled him to her chest sent the thrill of a new life racing through his limbs in painful currents.

Thank you! Although David Bowie would probably be handsome with a paper bag over his face, it was a bit of a challenge to give him such a dazed expression. Hopefully it panned out okay.

:glomp: I really needed some positive affirmation today, so thank you! Human emotions are so difficult to portray, it's always interesting to see someone's reaction to what you're offering as an artist.

My husband says I do far too many "hug" type icons / emoticons for a Scandinavian sensibility, is that true? ;)

:hug: No problem! Glad I could brighten your day somewhat :3 

:XD: hahaha yes and no. Not all Scandinavians are as cold as we are made out to be, infact many of us secretly want MORE hugs incl virtual ones ;) As the offspring of two very reserved "cold" cultures, I can say nopenope, keep giving hugs, we love it even though it may not appear so at first. We´re like that grumpy old guy who secretely smiles to himself after getting a hug from his grandchild xDD

Oh there has GOT to be a meme in the offing in that statement... like how to simultaneously horrify and make a Swede happy.

Yeah it´s like a split personality thing in us Scandis hahaha we´re both horrified and happy at the same time when someone wants to get close to us. But never on public transport no way, we Scandis are freaked out if some stranger talks to us... damn no wonder Sweden has the highest amount of singles in Scandinavia hahaha
