So I'm watching Beauty and the Beast right now, three guesses why, and I can't help but notice what an asshole the Beast is. Spoiled, violent, tempermental creep. 'Every inch a monster', indeed.
And yet, I cannot help but think that the sorceress's idea here maybe was that he should never break the spell. I mean. He's violently tempermental and then you put him into this huge hulking form while everyone around him is now furniture. Furniture! If anyone really tried to stand up to him before, he could now crush them like so many matchsticks.
Also, musical numbers - an excellent way to skip character development, y/n? >:P I mean. He's yelling, she finally yells back, and the next thing we see he's all googly eyed. No sign of conversations, no ...nothing!
Also it bothers me that she is essentially expected to do the job of teaching him to be a decent human being that his parents clearly failed to. *sigh* Right now, she's teaching him to read. She's teaching a prince
Wow. For all I like this movie, it also annoys the hell out of me. XD
As recompense for all that griping, have this - A Belle/Gaston story! ...no, seriously. I haven't gone insane! It's long and it's kind of complicated and it treats them both like people
, with faults and good points, rather than a rather sneaky little princess (nosy much about the West Wing? Manipulating Cogsworth ring a bell? ...I knew there was a reason I feel this urge to slash her with Maleficent) and a nasty cardboard villain. Picture This( Further spoilery thoughts about 358/2 Days )
What? What?! I have to beat Challenges to get the secret reports I'm missing? Nooooo!
...eeem. Maybe later. I need a break. >>
