So, I was rereading the comments for this Beauty and the Beast parody comic from Shortpacked:

And I started wondering about whether or not the upcoming 2017 live-action version of Disney's "Beauty and the Beast" will address any of the points that were brought up. I'm not saying that the film must address these points, but it would be fun if they did. So, here are a list of questions/plot holes/threads left hanging from the original Disney movie:

Another “Beauty and the Beast” review from Phelous! This time, Phelous reviews an anime version of “Beauty and the Beast” from Grimm’s Fairy Tale Classics.

Batman vs. Superman: The First Meeting

So, since "Batman v. Superman" is still in theaters, I suppose that now’s a good a time as any to mention another thing that bugs me about how certain writers portray Batman and Superman's relationship. Namely, how they discover each other's secret identities.

So, here’s something else that I’ve been wondering about fiction. I sometimes see people saying that it’s disrespectful for authors to incorporate elements in their work that many people in the real world still believe to be true. I’ve seen people criticize YA paranormal romance novels for featuring angels as their main supernatural creature, I’ve seen a critic say that skinwalkers shouldn’t be used in a fantasy book because apparently certain Native Americans still believe in them, etc. The main criticism is: many people still believe these things to be true, so stop treating them as if they’re mythical creatures like vampires and stop stripping them of the religious context and significance that they have for the believers of that particular faith.

Except…that’s already happened.

Felix vs. Adrien

So, apparently, Thomas Astruc, the creator of "Tales of Miraculous Ladybug and Chat Noir" had to send a tweet out to fans, telling them that Felix, the original concept for Adrien/Chat Noir, would not appear in any shape or form and that he was theirs to play with. Apparently, fans had been very persistent about asking him about Felix. Originally, the show was planned to be 2-D animation, and was heavily inspired by anime. The civilian identity of Chat Noir didn't actually have a name yet, but the fandom was so crazy about him that they dubbed him 'Felix' and the name stuck.

He only showed up in an OVA, but that was enough for some fans to fall in love with him and for me to dislike him.

So, I've gotten into a new show and fandom called "Tales of Miraculous Ladybug and Chat Noir". It's really fun and cute. It's a 3D animation show created in France that has been dubbed in Korean and only recently in English. It's a lot like "Sailor Moon," because the main characters are a teenage girl and teenage boy who undergo magical transformations to become superheroes and defeat the monster of the week. They're also involved in a love square that's not really one, because the heroine, Marinette Dupain-Cheng (a.k.a. Ladybug), is in love with the hero, Adrien Agreste, and doesn't know that he's her partner, Chat Noir, while Chat Noir/Adrien is in love with Ladybug and doesn't know that she's his classmate, Marinette. The fight scenes are great, the characters are likable and charming, and the romantic tension between Marinette/Ladybug and Adrien/Chat Noir is sweet and flirty.

Harry Potter: The Gateway Drug to Fandom

Being in as many fandoms as I've been and as long as I've had, a random thought just came to me that the Harry Potter fandom is kind of a bootcamp when it comes to other fandoms.

Basically, anything that's happening in a fandom, the HP fandom has done it all.


I read this manga months ago, so this review is long overdue! Short review: this manga is super cute and funny and I really like it.

Okay, longer review:

Random Question about Batman/Catwoman

Now I ship Batman/Catwoman and I'm always happy to see them getting married in a comic issue or fanfic, but a random thought just occurred to me. If Batman's rogues gallery knows that Catwoman is Selina Kyle and they know that Catwoman and Batman are in love...then what do they think when they find out that Selina's married Bruce Wayne? Do they assume that Selina's just using Bruce for his money and is carrying on an affair with Batman behind his back? Do they think that Selina's gotten over Batman? Or do some of them put two and two together and realize who Batman is?

Because out of all the fan and creator justifications for why Selina and Bruce can't just get married and raise Helena together like they did in Earth-2, I've never heard this one: "Oh, but if Selina and Bruce got married, then all of Batman's villains would know who Batman was!"

Happy Halloween!

HAPPY HALLOWEEN!
