  • Hi Amanda,

    I’m reading your old blogs because hey, you said in a post that I should do that if I wanted to know what you did. Congratulations on all your success, you’re amazing and I love your writing!

    Not the point. The point is that Labyrinth is awesome. That is all. I saw an interview with you on YouTube and you had a poster of Labyrinth in the background, then I read Switched and you referenced a Labyrinth poster and when I read this, I just had to post something.

    It’s one of the best movies ever. David Bowie and his pair of rolled up socks were a massive part of my childhood lol, I used to rewind and rewatch the ballroom scene over and over, I still love that song!

    Finally…I have to ask, as a child, did you ever envisage a sequel where Sarah and Jareth got together? Or was I the only one?

    P.S. Man this comment got away with me!

    P.P.S. I know them getting together is creepy because of the massive age difference but I didn’t know that as a child! 😉

    P.P.P.S. Edited and re-posted because of a typo. I hate my obsessive need to correct my grammar.
