I hope you all know that Kimberly J. Brown, aka Marnie Piper, is on tiktok, and I find it very comforting that she is just as excited about Halloween as Marnie was in the movies
Ben took her hand and they started walking towards the school. They talked all the way there, but the closer they came to Auradon Prep, the more nervous Evie became of calling Mal and telling her what had just happened.
The edge of the forest came into sight, and Evie slipped her hand out of Ben’s. No one could see them holding hands. It was risky enough that they were getting back to the school at the same time. Ben stopped walking and turned to look at her.
“Are you ok?” he asked, looking into her eyes.
“Yes,” she replied with a smile. “I’m just nervous about telling Mal. I don’t know how she’ll take it.”
“Mal broke up with me. She shouldn’t have any objection for me dating again.”
“It’s not about you dating again; it’s about you dating me,” Evie said. “I’m her best friend.”
“Which is why she should be happy for you… Don’t worry too much, OK? Everything will be all right.” He smiled at her and she couldn’t help but smile back.
“I hope so,” she replied, although she highly doubted it.
He stepped closer. He put a hand on her cheek and kissed her on the lips. She put her arms around him and pulled him even closer. She kissed him back.
Evie went up to the boys’ room and knocked on the door. Carlos’ voice told her she could go in.
“Hey,” she said as she went in. “Where’s Jay?”
“He and Gil are checking out the gym. What’s up?”
“I want to talk to Mal. Can you set it up?”
“Without Fairy Godmother it will be more difficult, but I’ll see what I can do… Why do you need to talk to Mal so urgently?”
“I… I can’t tell you.”
“You two are keeping secrets again?” Carlos asked, unable to let the hurt out of his voice.
“No, no… I just… Well, it’s my secret and I need to tell her before I tell anyone else.”
“Oooh,” Carlos said with a knowing smile. “Did something happen between you and Ben?”
Evie could feel her face burning. “I… We kissed. But you can’t tell anyone!” she added hurriedly.
“No, of course not. Your secret is safe with me.”
Carlos grabbed his laptop and started connecting to the Isle of the Lost. Usually he needed Fairy Godmother’s wand but he finally found a way around that. He had suggested to Evie that the Isle of the Lost should get its Wifi and she had agreed. She had told him she would work on it with Ben.
“How did you know?” Evie asked him.
“I saw the way he looked at you in the limo.
I thought there might be something between you two. And, to be honest, you have been working together so long, it was bound to happen.”
“Oh… I didn’t realise it was that obvious,” Evie replied.
They fell silent as Carlos set up the connection.
“Hey guys,” Mal answered the video call a little while later. “What’s up?”
“Hey Mal,” Carlos said with a freckly smile. “I’ll give you some privacy.”
Evie took the laptop from him and sat on the floor at the foot of his bed.
“Everything OK, E?” Mal asked. “I just saw you this morning.”
“No, I… I have something to tell you and it won’t be easy.”
“You can tell me anything, E. You know that.”
“Yes, I know… OK, here goes: Ben and I… we kissed.”
“Oh…” Mal started.
“I totally understand if you’re mad or upset and you need only say the word and I will end everything. I don’t want to do anything to hurt you,” Evie continued hurriedly, stumbling over the words.
“No, Evie, it’s ok. I broke up with Ben for a reason and you’ll make a better queen than I ever could.”
“It’s too early to think about that,” Evie said, lowering her head, unable to meet her best friend’s eyes.
“Well, it’s true. You’re more royal than anyone I know,” Mal reassured her with a smile. “Just promise me one thing, E.”
“Of course! Anything.”
“Promise me there was never anything between you two while Ben and I were together.”
“No! No, of course not, M. I could never do that to you. I’ve always liked him as a person but not in a romantic way until very recently.”
“Ok, ok. I’m glad. And thank you for telling me.”
“Of course I told you! You’re my best friend… And thank you for being cool with this.”
“Listen, E, does he make you happy?”
“I think he really could.”
“Good. Then that’s all I need to know.”
“Thank you, Mal. That is very good of you… Ben always saw the good in you.”
“It wasn’t about me not being good, I guess,” Mal replied. “It was about me not being… royal enough, I guess. I couldn’t do that princessy stuff anymore. You can, E… You two will make a great couple,” Mal ended with a smile.
Evie blushed at this. “Thank you… What about you and Harry? How is that going?”
“It’s going pretty well,” Mal replied. “I really like him and we get each other.”
“Well, I’m happy for you,” Evie said with a genuine smile.
“Thanks, E… This is a weird turn… but a good one.”
“I got to go,” Mal said. “Don’t worry about anything, Evie. If you two like each-other, that’s all that matters. We’ll still best friends. And we’re rotten. To the core.”
“To the core,” Evie said simultaneously. “Thanks, Mal. Good night. And I hope I see you soon.”
“Yeah, see you. Good night.”
Evie closed the laptop. She couldn’t believe Mal was being so OK with this. She could be with Ben. Finally she could be with Ben! She wanted to tell him straight away. She wanted to find him, hug him and kiss him again. But it would have to wait, though. It was getting late and she couldn’t risk being seen going to Ben’s room.
She wrote a little ‘Thank You’ note to Carlos and left the room.
Zoe from the DCOM Don’t Look Under the Bed says nonbinary rights.
And while I was trying to find a gif of Zoe calling themselves a boogeyPERSON, I came acrossed this.
So here is my NB Zoe edit. :)
Currently watching Another Cinderella Story. Found it interesting that the dude’s name was Joey Parker mainly since I’ve been binging Liv and Maddie lately.
This is the least interesting post ever but Joey and Parker? Coincidence, I think not!
Ben and Evie - a Descendants Fanfiction Part 2
Ben started walking towards the forest. It was a long way away but he didn’t mind. He needed to clear his mind. He needed to not think about Mal, Harry, Evie or anything as complicated as relationships. He set out at a fast pace but slowed down when he found himself surrounded by trees. The forest was peaceful. A bird chirped here and there and once he even stumbled on a quiet deer.
He arrived at the pavillion where he and Mal had had their first date. He let out a roar, not unlike his dad’s and crumpled to the ground, on his knees. Mal had torn his heart out right here about 5 months ago. Tears started flowing down his cheeks. This is stupid, he thought. She’s gone. She’s moved on. She’s happier now. You have to do that too.
“Ben?” he heard a cautious voice ask.
He stood up quickly and turned around, trying to wipe away his tears and failing miserably.
Evie stood there with her black leather pants and a red shirt with a golden crown printed on it. She wore a dark blue leather jacket, adorned with golden chains. Her hair was in a high ponytail and she looked as beautiful as she always did.
“Evie? What are you doing here? How… How did you find me?”
“I… thought you would come here. It… was always your place… You seemed upset and I thought you might want to talk about it.”
“I told you I wanted to be alone,” he said gruffly.
“Don’t go all Beast on me,” Evie replied calmly. “Being on the Isle and seeing Mal hurt me too… But if you want me to leave, I will. I’m sorry. I should have respected your privacy.”
He nodded and she almost turned away. Then she felt his hand on her arm.
“No. Wait. Stay.”
She looked into his soft brown eyes, glistening with tears, and her heart melted.
“Come sit with me,” he continued.
They sat on the ground, he leaning on one of the columns, and Evie in the centre of the pavillion.
“I… I guess I had not expected to see Mal with Harry… Did you know?”
“I had a hunch,” Evie admitted. “But I could not be sure. Mal was never the most open of people.”
“Do you talk often?”
“Not really. I have to ask Fairy Godmother and Carlos to help me set it all up so it is a bit of a hassle… We should discuss this in the next meeting, actually - Wifi on the Isle… But let’s leave that to another time… Mal’s intention was never to hurt you. But she and Harry go way back and the Isle was always in her heart.”
“I know, I know… but… I just…”
Evie nodded. She understood. He didn’t need to find the words.
They fell silent for a while. Ben stared at the ground and Evie looked around. The place was so beautiful; the sparkling clean water, the white marble pavilion, the emerald green trees. She could stay here forever. She took a deep breath in and closed her eyes.
Ben startled her by asking, “Are you happy here, Evie? In Auradon?”
“Yes, of course,” she replied, opening her eyes.
“Don’t you miss the Isle?”
“Sometimes. I miss my mother, mostly. But I don’t miss the fear and the hunger and the suffering all around. Besides, I think I am of more use here.”
Ben nodded. “I’m glad you found a better life here.”
“It’s only thanks to you.”
“No. I don’t believe that. You’ve made your own life better. You’ve thrived here. You’ve made use of what you found and not only for yourself, but for the other VKs as well… Mal… Mal just couldn’t bring herself to do that.”
His voice cracked at the mention of her name. Before she could stop herself, Evie reached out and put a hand on his shoulder, to comfort him. She almost took it away hastily but he put his hand on hers and held it.
He looked her in the eyes, looked at her lips, leaned in close.
“We can’t do this,” Evie said, pulling back a bit, but she made no effort to take her hand away from his.
“Mal doesn’t care anymore. We broke up.”
“I…” Evie couldn’t deny she wanted to kiss him too. Wanted him to kiss her. But what about Mal? What about their friendship? Weren’t there unwritten rules against this? Wasn’t there some sort of code she was breaking? Why had she come here? How did she feel?
He leaned in even closer and this time she didn’t stop him. She let him kiss her. And suddenly she was kissing him too. She closed her eyes. Her heart was beating out of her chest. He put a hand on her neck, brushing her blue ponytail back. She put a hand on his chest, feeling his heart beating steadily. He put his other arm around her waist and pulled her closer. She slid her hand up to his face, then put her arms around his neck, resting her elbows gently on his broad shoulders.
“Ben.” Evie pulled away after a few minutes. “I think we should keep this a secret for now.”
“Why?” Ben asked, sounding hurt.
“I don’t want Mal to find out from rumours or TV. I will tell her tonight. Besides, people will talk and I don’t want that… We should wait for now.”
“OK. If that’s what you want,” Ben said with a small smile. The sadness had faded from his eyes. She had done that. Her heart had not yet returned to its normal rate. She could feel her lips forming the shape of a smile and she could not stop them. He had kissed her! He liked her!
But what would Mal think? She had spoken so calmly to Ben just now but inside she was nervous of telling Mal what had just happened. She had just made out with her best friend’s ex. I just made out with my best friend’s ex! I’m horrible!
She nodded to show him that was what she wanted.
“OK,” he repeated. His arm was still around her waist. It tightened as he pulled her closer. She put her head on his chest. and he put his other arm around her shoulder.
“This is wrong,” she said sadly.
“I can barely tell anymore,” Ben replied. “It doesn’t feel wrong. And if we both like each-other, it shouldn’t matter what people think.”
“I do like you, Ben,” she whispered. But she felt like she shouldn’t.
“I like you too.”
Her heart fluttered involuntarily. There was no going back from this. She shouldn’t have come here but she was glad she did. It felt good, being in his strong embrace. She closed her eyes and nestled into him. He held her close and closed his eyes too.
They had no idea how long they stayed in each-other’s arms when Evie said, “We should go.”
Ben opened his eyes and found her looking up at his face. She was so beautiful. “Yeah, OK,” he agreed reluctantly.
He finally took his arms away from around her and they both stood up. They were still standing close though. He put a hand on her cheek and leaned in for another kiss. “You’re amazing,” he murmured in between kisses.
“You’re so good,” she replied, kissing him back. Then after a few seconds, she added, “Now we really have to go.”

okay so we’re criticizing disney properties that do a bad job of presenting the nuanced and difficult matter of racism to children? is that what we’re doing?
it is what we’re doing. if you present a metaphor for racist discrimination in which there are two groups - the oppressors and the oppressed - and the group being oppressed is presented as being so because they pose a threat to the group oppressing them; then you’ve failed at building a good metaphor.
like if in your movie you have normal people, and then people that will actually kill the normal people if they have even an slight chemical imbalance in their brains, then it’s no longer two people, but one set of monsters and one of people.
