Summary: It all started with a book...again. But this time, she can't decide what is real. 'Cogito, ergo sum.' I think, therefore I am. But what about Him? Sarah doesn't know how to make the choice she needs to make. What is real? Nobody really knows.

This story cuts to the heart of one of the dichotomies of Labyrinth: reality and the dream, and which is which. The Underground and Above are two different worlds; what if one is torn between the two? With many Sarah/Jareth stories, Sarah leaves behind the world Above without a qualm, or she manages to have her cake and eat it too. This one does neither, and I appreciate it for not avoiding the dilemma of having to make a choice between them.
