Here is an excerpt from The Goblin King – a retelling of Labyrinth (Sexual Rating: Adult Content):

The boy blinked at the snowflake that danced for him. His
father’s kingdom sat quietly behind it—fuzzy and
obscured.

“I see a girl,” he said, and it felt as if his voice had deepened, as if he
had grown older as he stared at her—a girl with dark eyes and dark
hair and graceful hands and this feeling that she was… his.

Even as just a boy, not really knowing what possession meant, he
felt it with stark simplicity—the way he knew that he would someday
be king and that both goblins and men would fall at his feet.

In the dancing snowflake, she leaned over a desk, drawing a pen
across a piece of paper.

He watched, fascinated, as the steady movement of her pen
stopped and her fingers turned abruptly, taking what she had drawn
and shifting it into a different direction. The boy had never seen
writing like that—artwork as much as letters.

His name.

Radek.
