Once you've split them both into separate pages make Literature.Ariel a disambig page. Actually, Main.Ariel is also a book so you might just want to make the main a disambig and redirect the literature there.

Reality is that, which when you stop believing in it, doesn't go away.

Actually, this issue has come up for Roommates and Roommates. Both are webcomics, both are fanfiction, both originated from online art communities, and the only other thing they have in common is that they coincidentally have the same name. Neither has a greater claim to Main/Roommates than the other. The same is true for FanFic/Roommates and Webcomic/Roommates — the description applies equal to both unrelated works. How is this situation addressed?
Neither has a greater claim to Main/Roommates than the other
That's because, as work pages, neither of them is allowed to be on that page. Main/ is for tropes.
Also, I'd argue that the image from the 2009 one's page is borderline NSFW, but that's a matter for a different page.
Which would be the case here. Main.Roommates should be a disambiguation page with links to all pages for works of that name.
In the case of two works that share the same name and media, I'd say pick some other unambiguous identifier, like we did for Sally Forth (Howard) and Sally Forth (Wood) (two comic strips), where we used the original the artists' names, or Dennis the Menace (US) and Dennis the Menace (UK), where we used the country of origin. Then use the custom titler to make the indentifier display in parentheses after the name of the work
