    Summary

    Count Raphael Lésagero of Bordeaux, France must marry a young woman for his beastly curse to be broken. After nearly a decade of being a monster, he's not even sure anymore if he wants to be human again. But when Miss Dalia O'Bruadair—a young woman from overseas—comes to stay in his castle, everything changes.

    Note: The story takes place between the 1850s and 1880s in Bordeaux, France, and Georgia, USA. It garners inspiration mainly from Beauty and the Beast and French history but also Gone with the Wind and American/Native American history in later chapters.

    Summary

    A Beauty and the Beast retelling, with influences from the traditional BatB fairytale, Irish/Celtic mythology, and Disney's 1991 Beauty and the Beast. ~❦︎~ Athena Everleigh is a curious lass living in a village on the outskirts of Dublin, Ireland in 1905. Nearing her sixteenth birthday, she faces a choice: to either live the life her mother prepared for her, full of magic, forests, ancient tales, and shapeshifting—or to become the rising Dublin socialite her father wants her to be. It is not until she begins working in a castle for a mysterious man that the answer becomes clear. Several weeks go by, but the longer she works for him, the more she realizes he may not even be a man at all. It turns out, he has a past all his own. And it is up to Athena to unravel it.

    Summary

    A retelling of the fairy tale set in the early Victorian Era.

    Viola Weston is desperate to pay off her family's debts. Stubborn and self-reliant, she would rather look for work than seek an advantageous marriage. She is utterly unprepared for her eccentric new employer's beastly appearance--but quickly charmed by his warm heart and cheerful disposition.

    Albert Carlyle is lonely: cursed from birth with a monstrous form, but coldly tolerated by society for his wealth. People are afraid of him, no matter how hard he tries to make himself agreeable. He has resigned himself to a quiet life collecting butterflies and ignoring judgmental whispers--until Viola upends his comfortable, complacent existence.

    Can Viola set aside her pride long enough to accept his help? Can Albert find the courage to make his affections known? Or will the cruelties of the world tear their budding relationship apart?

    Summary

    Her father went bankrupt, and Belle and her family moved away from the city where they had lived to a dilapidated old house far away in the countryside. After that, Belle expected to spend the rest of her life in obscurity. But after three years, her father was summoned back to the city with a chance to recover what they had lost, and before he left, he asked his daughters what they would like him to bring them.

    Belle’s sisters asked for finery. Belle asked for a rose.

    She had no idea what a fateful request that would be.

    Summary

    Turned into a beast of his own right by the very same Enchantress that cursed the prince, Gaston must find a way to stay alive in the wilds of the forest and find someone who can love him for who he is, not by what he looks like. Years pass, however, and hope at ever being human again seems to be just out of his reach. It doesn't seem possible for him to find anyone to truly want to be with him in ways not even Belle did... until he stumbles just far enough into her home.

    Ari has never found men to be very appealing, with the way her father raised her and how she will bear the scars from her childhood for life, but the tortured soul inside this strange monster calls out to her. Ariadne knows exactly what he feels, how he feels, and the battered woman is drawn to him in ways she cannot understand. She allows him into her home, her life, her mind easier than she ever thought possible. It doesn't matter that he has a snout and horns. It doesn't matter that he has cloven hooves. All she sees is the way he was hurt, and the way he needs to be healed.

    They've both been broken down. But maybe, just maybe, they can build themselves back up together.

    **Not so much disney like, more of my twisted take on fairytales and ideas** **Little Red Riding Hood/Big Bad Wolf, maybe huntsmen** **Alice/Mad Hatter** **Peter Pan/Wendy Darling** *Belle/Beast**

    Reality can become a fairy tale if you dig deep enough.

    Summary

    When a story is as old as this one, so old that it remembers when time itself was new, it’s impossible to not alter it with each new telling. However, even the most frequently adapted stories will always contain some hidden veins of truth, if not in its mutable players and setting, then hidden somewhere in its core to hold meaning for lovers of all persuasions. Perhaps here you will find nothing resembling the history recorded in textbooks, or as much similarity as you might like to the versions of this story known by heart to many, but fear not, the opening strains will remain familiar, for-

    Once upon a time, in a far away land, a young princess lived in a shining castle.

    Alternative summary: Maybe not the lesbian Beauty and the Beast retelling we deserved, but the one we needed.

    **CURRENTLY ON HIATUS UNTIL THE AUTHOR PULLS HER SHIT TOGETHER IN HER OFFLINE LIFE BEFORE SHE ATTEMPTS THIS STORY PROPERLY, AT WHICH POINT WHAT IS CURRENTLY HERE WILL BE COMPLETELY REWRITTEN**
