000 leagues

Was this film not savaged by Malaysian censors? Have the Russians not forbidden any child from bearing witness? Did a theater in Alabama not go full Footloose?

A man goes into a live-action Beauty And The Beast with a certain set of expectations, one of those being a completely flaming gay tryst featuring Josh Gad and a chorus line of semen-soaked villagers. Instead, and do brace yourself for some fearsome spoilers, I had Josh Gad dancing in courtly fashion with another man for literally three seconds of screen time just as the end credits begin to roll. That was the gay? That was homosexual? My word, I’ve had gayer times at the county fair with a corn dog. Every single time a straight dude showers at the gym, he’s about 3,000 gay leagues deeper in the gay sea than this. You’re gayer by proxy just driving by a highway rest stop.

I too am outraged by the gayness in Disney’s Beauty And The Beast, because there is none. There’s a man who, if you read into the less-than-subtle subtext of the film, is quite possibly homosexual, but who commits about as many homosexual acts as the clock does.

Why ‘Beauty And The Beast’ Isn’t Nearly Gay Enough

Georges Méliès
200,000 Leagues Under the Sea or The Nightmare of a Fisherman - 1907

Marie-Georges-Jean Méliès, known as Georges Méliès (/meɪˈljɛs/; French: [meljɛs]; 8 December 1861 – 21 January 1938), was a French illusionist and film director famous for leading many technical and narrative developments in the earliest days of cinema. Méliès was an especially prolific innovator in the use of special effects, popularizing such techniques as substitution splices, multiple exposures, time-lapse photography, dissolves, and hand-painted color.

A Matter of Trust

This is admittedly not very good, but it’s here and I wrote it. Almost 2,000 words of the League sitting around chitchatting. Honestly it was an excuse to put some of my thoughts on Billy into writing. But I promised a fic so here it is, enjoy all the talking.


It had been a long, exhausting mission but eventually, the Justice League had emerged victorious. But after almost three days of battling and strategizing and being away from the Earth, the Team was starting to feel the strain. Currently they were crashed on the Watchtower hovering far above the planet to debrief and destress before returning to their homes.

title: da’s not much of a cook (but his love is true).

rating: g. family fluff. 

summary: Liam Jones II is a much better cook than his older brother and sister-in-law, and that’s why the twins are always at his place on a Saturday morning. A family, both of his own making and blood - who would have thought he’d be here?

a/n: clearly, because as fandom has decided that killian is going to be the cook/storyteller of the Jones clan, I couldn’t help myself with this little ditty. featuring Liam Jones II (who stole the show tbh), and the Jones twins. 


“Uh, it’s not that da can’t cook…” Leia hedges, as she wolfs down Liam’s pancakes, “it’s just that…”

“He still cooks like he’s out at sea,” Luke finishes with an eye roll, adding a ridiculous amount of maple syrup to his batch. “I mean, you were 20,000 leagues UNDER the sea so it’s no excuse for da, but I guess when you’re old as balls, habits are hard to break.”

“Luke!” Leia admonishes, though it’s punctuated by so much laughter it’s hardly an admonishment. “I mean, boiled mackerel is his favorite breakfast food,” she says with disgust.

Liam looks at his niece and nephew fondly, shaking his head at their antics. “You’re lucky the brig isn’t an option for you two,” he says, pointedly adding some cut fruit to their plates. 

“Though to be fair, boiled mackerel is disgusting,” he concedes.

“What’s that insubordination I hear?” interjects a new voice.
