For the past fifteen years, Aerith Gainsborough has been living with her adoptive mother in the Midgar slums. No Turks have managed to track her down, no SOLDIERs have fallen through the old church roof, and she certainly hasn't encountered any murderous ex-heroes. Some might call her life peaceful, but she calls it boring… at least, until she makes the mistake of wishing for adventure. While running an errand to the outskirts, Aerith is surrounded by monsters and presented with a fight she can't win on her own. Little does she know that her knight in shining armor is a bit of a beast himself, in more than just one way.
Basically an excuse to write an Aerith reverse harem without needing to account for previous meetings with the other characters. Rated M for now, but likely to escalate to E eventually. No knowledge of "Beauty and the Beasts" is required (see note).
