Well, congratulations. You made me root for a character I never thought I’d root for. :)

Then again, Gaston is so self-absorbed and so used to giving Lefou orders that it didn't cross his mind, especially after Lefou defies and knocks him down.

Gaston should have asked Lefou to do something a little more personal - like asking him a question only he would know the answer to.

I love this story so much!

I love this! The grammar's flows and the story never feels forced. I'm amazed at how you keep Gaston in character but still manage to make him the hero of the story. He's still vain as always, but kind of in a funny, not so serious way. It's great how you turn his obnoxious arrogance into likeable confidence, all without being OOC. It's amazing how you write about him, thank you so much!

Gabrielle 'Belle' de Villenvue
Full Name: Gabrielle Rose de Villenvue
Birth Place: Paris, France, moved to Villenvue as a teenager
Occupation: Inventor, Diplomat, Professor, later Princess, Queen and Socialite
Belle is noted to be a breathtakingly beautiful young woman with classical English Rose looks: Long curly dark hair, gigantic brown eyes and smooth rosy skin. Although she is one of the more prettier girls in the village and the object of men's desire, that did not help the fact she doesn't fit in the small village
As a small town girl she dresses in simple, sensible robes of dark colors, with floral patterns and effortless cuttings as she liked to wear beautiful dresses as a child, with no makeup. During the time she was in the cursed castle, she wore beautiful, elegant and simple robes made from Madame Garderobe and Plumette. By the time she was a princess, she wore elegant, luxurious robes of the finest silk and chiffon, clad in dark and bold colors, with fur, timeless jewelry and iconic fur hats in the winter. Her wardrobe in court is based on Anna Karenina.
At the start of the movie, Belle was presented to be an overachiever who is unhappy with her current life and wishes to find out 'something out there.' Her adventure to the Prince's castle dramatically changed her life, as she grows from a naïve small town girl who flies with life, to a mature, dignified and elegant queen beloved and looked upon by many. Her refusal with Gaston and some other men in the village, her love of books and learning ad her incredibly sharp mind, shows that she is a modern woman of the 18th century who despises being tied down some what
Her adventurous spirit made being in the castle, as she selflessly posed herself to replace her father in the cursed prince dungeon. Throughout her journey, she realizes the cause odf the curse, and realizes even upper class people suffered a great deal. A lot of the courtiers remind her of the small town people, like Lumiere reminds her of Pere Robert and Cogsworth the older version of her father, where she loves to be.
Belle is shown to be a dreamer and never takes things for granted, even when she was a princess. She is a child at heart and Mrs Potts kept telling the prince how much she takes simple pleasures in flowers, nature and simpler joys in life. She was the bridge for the better understanding of her background for the upper class
Belle learns a lot. Maurice watched with pride as his daughter grew from naïve to sophisticated and tasteful, all the while still down to earth, humble and passionate. Belle always puts her family first and never afraid to speak her mind. She was a tomboy with an athletic streak, but like many women of the time, she was also sweet and ladylike, and took a liking in tea parties and beautifully adorned floral dresses. Belle is also one of the first Queens to actually care for the lower class, after Adam's own mother. It is said by many that no one in France is as sweet, beautiful and true as Queen Gabrielle, not even Mrs Potts.

Amazing! This was a great addition to the Beauty and the Beast story. I'm glad Gaston got his happily ever after. You did a wonderful job. I can't wait to read more of your work.

Truth be told, I've always loathed Gaston. As much as I love singing along to his villainous songs, I never liked him. But now, I'm seeing him in a new light.
Basically, I read this in the course of a little over an hour and I adored it.

With Belle and Alexander and now Gaston and Genevieve, my Disney dreams are complete.

What we all need! A Gaston fanfic where he redeems himself and finds love.
| Guest chapter 6 . 4/22/2016
Wow! I'm actually feeling a little sorry for Gaston. Or at least as sorry as you can feel for someone who tortured Beast in order to force Belle into complacency. Well done.
