Beauty & the Beast [COMPLETE]

PrincessSimcessPrincessSimcess Posts: 917 Member
Long ago, a village emerged in the heart of Windenburg. It wasn’t large by any means, but still people flocked to the humble tudor houses and main strip to sell their goods. A trade market emerged, and the village quickly grew into one filled with tradesmen and hands-on workers, but little book smarts. The small school was quickly falling apart, with only a single person teaching children to read and write. To complicate matters further, a large, abandoned castle spiralled up in the middle of the woods. No one could get to it, for the path in the woods would seemingly come alive and twist the course, spitting the villagers out at the spot they had entered. As the years passed, people gave up trying to reach it altogether, for even attempting to cross the river to get to it was a suicide mission. The only hint that a real being lived there was the black cloaked people that came into town to purchase goods, disappearing as quickly as they came.
Curiosity dimmed as this became the norm.
That is, until a determined young girl was born.


Beauty and the Beast is a story featured on my blog PrincessSimcess.wordpress.com. I've previously written works such as The Royal Bachelor and The Ayers Prettacy (an ongoing project). Now, I’m excited to announce I’m writing a story based on my favourite fairytale! A previous forum allowed people on this board to submit a whole host of different characters, and now it's time to read the story they helped create!
Lift up your head, princess. If not, the crown falls.

    Hey Simcess, a couple things, when trying to vote for a "Belle", no options cane up for me, just a done button. Also, for mine, you've got the maid and lady's maid swapped, Leonie is the maid and Margaux is the lady's maid. :)

    Thanks for letting me know! The voting should have options now. Also, I actually swapped them on purpose :) I had some ideas for them if one o the other win, but I can swap them if you'd like!

    @PrincessSimcess I didn't see the bio for Susan Welch, but she is mentioned as an antagonist. Just wondering if you forgot or what happened.

    Did Casimir not make it to be voted on for the beast role? I checked and he should be in the gallery. No worries if you didn't want to use him I was just curious.

    She's not on the gallery, so I didn't put her in the bios/votes :(

    Aww! I'm really glad you like him. And if he doesn't win you are still more than welcome to use him in something else if you want to. I had a lot of fun making him and writing his back story so its good to see he is loved. :)

    I've voted for everyone but the servants. We're going to mass in 30 minutes, so I'll leave that part for later. :)

    I voted for the various characters. La Belle&the Bete (the French name) is one of my favourite stories. Did you know n the 1991 Disney movie the book Belle is reading is suppose to be HER (future) story?

    I didn't know that at all! I always thought it was about Sleeping Beauty. But what you said makes more sense :)
    Here's where she meets Prince Charming, but she won't discover that it's him 'til chapter three

    Well I have read some previous version of Beauty&the Beast and you know that "picture" which is shown for less then 2 seconds which shows a lion-like character on the left? Well in most other versions (like Jean Cocteau's black&white 1947 film) shows the Beast as a lion.

    Wow! I'm not as familiar with other iterations other than the Disney one. I'll have to change that soon! It's so interesting to me that so many different places and cultures can interpret such a simple story in so many different ways :)
