Instead of a spotlight, a movie fragment...

With Pearl and Ruby Glowing is a collaborative fanfic on AO 3. It is a Bat Family Crossover style fanfic featuring the characters of the Disney Animated Canon, with a structure inspired heavily by Haunted 2005.

This fanfic started in response to a prompt in the Disney Kink Meme about writing the characters in a rape support group, and although not all the members of the group were directly raped themselves, the main focus of the fic is the story of why they're there in the first place. None of the characters in the group use their real names, but the characters' identities are easily recognizable.

With Pearl and Ruby Glowing contains examples of:

  • And Now You Must Marry Me: Marian's story.
  • Arc Words: "Instead of a spotlight, a movie fragment..."
  • Big Good: Mary Poppins is the one who set up the group in the first place.
  • Darker and Edgier: Most of the stories told take elements of the canon plotline and twist them into something far more disturbing. It is a story about rape, after all. For example, Pinocchio's story turns Pleasure Island into a pedophile ring.
  • Distracted by the Sexy: Worst possible version for Timon, who does the Darker And Edgier version of his marriage-proposal-as-distraction from The Lion King 1½.
  • Double Standard: Rape, Female on Female: Averted. Tiana's and Lilo's stories feature female-on-female rape that is played as the horrible situation it is.
  • Double Standard: Rape, Female on Male: Averted in the very first chapter with Timon's story. His main attacker is female, and it is once more played for the horror it is. He himself is conflicted about whether it "counts", not because she was a woman but because he offered himself up to save the lives of others.

  • Double Standard: Rape, Male on Male: Averted. Many of the stories are about male on male rape.
  • Harmful to Minors / Would Hurt a Child: Many of the group members are children, and there's a healthy mix of both knowing and not knowing their attackers.
  • Human Traffickers: Kuzco falls prey to these.
  • Intersex: Instead of being a puppet here, Pinocchio is a human boy born with genital agenesis.
  • Meaningful Rename: The nicknames are taken from the characters' stories to help them feel stronger and better about what happened.
  • Nausea Fuel: The mere thought of this premise with Disney characters is it for some people, and the actual actions in-story are not graphic but it's clear enough what's going on to be horrifying.
  • Only Known by Their Nickname: Character names aren't given in-fic but it's obvious who everyone is. In-universe, names are classified.

  • Rape as Backstory: This is the main point of the fic, with most chapters delving into said backstory.
  • Rape as Redemption: Not exactly. Some of the characters are villains, but their redemption, if it happens, comes more from seeking help and bonding with others over it.
  • Shout-Out: Many, to Haunted 2005 and to various songs. For example, Lampwick's fate is based on that of Sandy Fishnets, and Marian's chapter involves several references to the Vocaloid song "The Fox's Wedding".
  • Super-Fun Happy Thing of Doom: Pleasure Island is even worse here than in the movie.
  • Troubling Unchildlike Behavior: Kindergarten-age Mertle re-enacts her own assault on Lilo.
  • You Have Outlived Your Usefulness: Lampwick gets too old for Pleasure Island, and all they find of him is his hat.
