Kayasuri-n chapter 6 . 9/12/2009
So intimidating castle is intimidating, Belle has met the Beast, and squee! So familiar- yet so new! (Hey, wasn't there a song about that?) Honestly, I'm not sure what to say about this, other then woah and wicked and eagerly awaiting more. I am speechless.
Freawaru chapter 6 . 9/12/2009
Wonderful as always! I'm really curious to see what you do with the child.
MaddiOtaku chapter 6 . 9/12/2009
OMG! How do you do it? You're a Fantastic writer! I'm just...WOW!
Kayasuri-n chapter 5 . 9/11/2009
Ah, yes, your explanation does make sense. Embarassment and/or fury can make even the smartest of people do the dumbest of things. (See, just about every 'I hurt my reproductive organs on my own' method in existance...) -cough- anyways. The emotions ring true, which is the important part! And poor Beast's angsting... NOT over done, thank you, I adore you for that alone.

Yeah, what CAN you do when you're a Beast in a cursed castle with a castle full of servants who are utterly terrified of you and there's nothing to do? Sulk, apparently...

And as for my last review, no, I wasn't the one with the axe. An almost-Darwin award I read on the web. He wasn't even drunk- he just tried to show off while chopping wood. It can be potentially lethal, but it can also be, y'know, survivable with a nasty scar on one's leg... If you wanted to give Gaston a limp, anyways.

And no kidding, new chapter up fast! How many did you say you had prewritten? Nine? Eagerly awaiting the next one, because I just know the introduction between Beast and Belle will be interesting... Uh, the daughter isn't five years old...
MaddiOtaku chapter 4 . 9/10/2009
WOW! Only 4 chapter within the story...and i'm already in love with it! Bless you for making this story! I can't wait for my hand and arm to heal up. So, I can start writing my story again. (typing with one hand is HARD! lol) Well, plz keep writing this story! CAN'T WAIT FOR CHAPTER 5!
Kayasuri-n chapter 4 . 9/10/2009
Oh bless you, horse sense! Bless you a thousand times over! (horse nut. Forgive me)

Okay, that aside... Gaston! You- ARGH. Y'know, it's amazing the injuries that can come about when you're chopping wood and showing off. Especially when the axe hits the log/stump/tree trunk just badly enough to bounce OFF the whatever's being chopped to smack into the wood cutter's leg... You can bleed to death if that happens. Not that I'm hoping anything bad happens to a certain vile creature, oh no...

Poor Belle. Not only is the town son-uva-bleep after her and COMPLETELY UTTERLY BENT (and deserving of an axe...) but she has to make her escape through a cold stream too. At least she has Phillipe, and at least she's so far away from Gaston in the castle...

Actually, maybe Gaston could try to find her. And run into a very angry Beast instead... Be more amusing if Gaston only saw a few dangerous looking shadows and ran away screaming, but probably unlikely...

Going to plot various ways to make Gaston's last moemnts alive livving terror. Eagerly awaiting the next chapter, and am hopeful that Belle doesn't have a heart attack from the panic.

(Side note- adore the story she's reading, and how King and Queen are partners. Foreshadowing?)
EarthGurdian chapter 4 . 9/10/2009
Okay it's not like it has to be said but I'm going to say it anyway, Gaston is a Royal Pain in the Butt. I would say something worse but I'm trying to watch my language at this time. Anyway great chapter with getting to know Belle, she is different from the movie to be sure but is is still the Heroine we all know and love. Plus she has become more believable than her film version since she really is facing a real problem that can't be solved easily. Also I'm wondering how you are going to bring up the pregnancy to the Beast. Will it be at the first meeting or when she runs away? LOL I know what I'm betting on but you are the author and it's all up to you. I hope you are well, that Grad School is going great, and to read another update soon.

I really, REALLY like this! It's fascinating to see how Belle has changed as a result: she's still Belle, but much more cautious and hesitant and anxious, not so confident and optimistic...and yet still a survivor, constantly thinking and strategizing and figuring out how best to protect herself AND escape her situation, determined that she will NOT give in. Excellent job!
Kayasuri-n chapter 3 . 9/9/2009
Gaston. Is a. BASTARD. Gah! That- words do not do justice. Yes, the seeds of his bastard-ness was there in the movie, especially Mob-scene Gaston. You've just taken it that one step further. Ugh, reading the part with him in it left a bad taste in my mouth. Congradulations, I do believe, for you the writer.

Belle is still ringing authentic. Poor girl, she's going to get an ulcer from the stress. Though, I do wonder how her pregnancy is going to figure into her plans, when she's deciding whether to trade herself for her father. I look forward to an answer to my questions, and sincerely hope something suitably nasty happens to Gaston in the near future. A pig's wallow is NOT justice enough.

Maybe an axe... It's not like he NEEDS all of his limbs, right?
EarthGurdian chapter 3 . 9/9/2009
Well things are looking good so far. I really like how this is going and you are doing a wonderful job of making the characters believable even with the change of attitude due to change in age and events. Plus it being an AU it would stand to reason that while some events remain the same others will change either dramatically or only slightly. So again you have done a wonderful job and I hope to see more updates soon.

Kayasuri-n chapter 2 . 9/8/2009
Well this is new. Completely unexpected. I am impressed, at how you're dealing with the characters. And the second last line- brilliant.

Dealing with the Beast (have you already figured out what his name is to be?) was beautiful. I especially adore how you made him older, which is much more reasonable, but that's not what I loved the most. The part dealing with his parents, and his relationship with them... As well as his father locking himself up in the West Wing... Well! I can't wait to see how Beast's character develops.

And Belle! Poor thing- Gaston is a nasty, terrible person and I do so hope he gets his comeupance. Fatally, y'know? Belle's reaction to him is absolutely perfect, as is- I should assume- her reasons for not calling the authorities on him. That day and age... Heck, even this day and age... Anyways.

Belle being pregnant is an interesting plot twist, and I can't wait to see how it all unfolds. Story has been added to my favorites.
EarthGurdian chapter 2 . 9/7/2009
Hey there, long time no see. Sorry about that I've been so busy with classes that I haven't had much free time to read Echos. But I'm liking how this story is going and it a little differnt from what you have done before. I know this drives you crazy but I can't help myself. I'm wondering how this is going to affect Belle's relationship to the Beast when he finds out she's pregnant. I'm also wondering how this is going to change the story line and I'm looking forward to finding out. But Gaston, or the Gaston character, is definatly capable of doing something like Rape. So I hope you are well and to be reading another wonderfully written chapter soon.

I'm really intrigued by this! I like the way the framework is starting out like the movie, yet going in a different direction, with this added mystery of Belle's problem. Great so far!
TrudiRose chapter 1 . 9/6/2009
I like this beginning! You did an excellent job on the prince's backstory!
