So, there's been a lot of chatter lately about Disney's new production of Beauty and the Beast coming out soon (?). You know, the non-animated one with Emma Watson and that dude who was in the Hobbit, and Ian McKellan. That one.

There's been some fuss about the fact that the movie is going to include a gay character. *gasp!* Some people are ecstatic, others aren't super thrilled about the choices made, and some *ahem*bigots*ahem* are outright boycotting the movie. ANYhoo. I'm pretty sure every one of my followers on here at least have nothing against homosexual relationships, lol.

To get back to my point - Beauty and the Beast is my favorite [animated, classic] Disney movie. I'm not really sure how I feel about them 'remaking' it, but all the hubbub has been reminding me that there are some most excellent SPN/SPN RPF fics that have drawn inspiration from this great movie. I've listed the ones I know below. I highly recommend them all, so you should definitely read them, and show the authors (and one artist!) some love. And if you've got any similar recommendations, I'd love to hear of them!

Try the grey stuff, it's delicious!

Er, I mean, I hope you enjoy the recs! ♥

Something There by [livejournal.com profile] non_tiembo_mala
SPN, Canon Divergent, Sam/Dean, NC-17, 57K

It's a tale as old as time - there's an apocalypse looming and Sam and Dean are caught in the middle. Just another day for the Winchesters, except this time Sam's been kidnapped, leaving Dean to befriend Heaven and fight Hell to get him back.

Handsome by [livejournal.com profile] deirdre_c, with art by [livejournal.com profile] sophiap
SPN RPF, Fairytale AU, Jared/Jensen, NC-17, 37K

Jensen is a royal guardsman who’s gravely wounded during the assassination of the Queen by her traitorous sister. He flees into the woods, where he stumbles across a mysterious, derelict castle. Jensen’s worst fears come to life when he discovers the castle is home to a terrifying dragon straight out of legend. Can Jensen recover from his wounds, vanquish the villains, save his father and the kingdom, and—on top of all that—fall in love with the dragon?

Of course he can. It’s a tale as old as time.

Beauty and the ‘Bot’ by [livejournal.com profile] zubeneschamali
SPN RPF, Space AU, Jared/Jensen, PG-13, 10K

Jared's deliberate isolation is shattered when a merchant's ship crash lands on his moon. When the merchant tries to steal a flower from him, Jared demands his most prized possession in return: a 'bot that Jared himself designed many years ago. Jared gets to know the 'bot, which has not only given itself a name but become more human than Jared could have imagined. Together, Jared and Jensen will have to answer the question: what makes a person truly human?

These are all great fics! *cosigns*

I am the same as you: this is my all time fave Disney movie and I've been "ehhhh" about the remake since they first announced it :-/

Thanks! I appreciate the added weight of your voice to the recs :)

And yeah, I tend to feel that way whenever they remake one of the classic Disney animations. Like, I saw the new Cinderella in theaters, for kicks. It was fine, and visually enjoyable, but it didn't really add anything to the story, or really improve upon it in any way? And I hold Beauty and the Beast to such a high standard, that I can only guess this remake will be similar. Pretty to look at and perhaps passably entertaining, but with no way to live up to the original.

Ooh! It's always a good day when one discovers an un-read zuben fic!! Glad to be of service! ;)

I'm afraid your singing is wasted on me, I've never seen the Beauty and the Beast!

oh! oh noooo! Well, if you're not opposed to the idea, it really is one of my absolute favorite movies of all time. You should give it a watch, if you can find a copy! (Disney is a pain in the butt to get ahold of sometimes, what with their penchant for keeping their films in their 'vault'... >.> ) Regardless, I hope you are enjoying the fic recs! :)
