This is based on my favourite fairytale and Disney movie of all time with a little Twilight thrown in. I don't own the characters, obviously, but I have fun playing around with them! Let me know what you think!


Once upon a time in a far away land, a young prince lived in a shining castle. Although he had everything his heart desired the prince was spoiled, selfish and unkind. But then one winter's night an old beggar woman came to the castle and offered him a single rose in return for shelter from the bitter cold.

Repulsed by her haggard appearance, the prince sneered at the gift and turned the old woman away. But she warned him not to be deceived by appearances, for beauty is found within. And when he dismissed her again, the old woman's ugliness melted away to reveal a beautiful enchantress.

The prince tried to apologize, but it was too late, for she had seen that there was no love in his heart; and as punishment she transformed him into a hideous beast and placed a powerful spell on the castle and all who lived there.

Ashamed of his monstrous form, the beast concealed himself inside his castle, with a magic mirror as his only window to the outside world. The rose she had offered was truly an enchanted rose, which would bloom until his twenty-first year. If he could learn to love another, and earn her love in return by the time the last petal fell, then the spell would be broken. If not, he would be doomed to remain a beast for all time.

As the years passed he fell into despair and lost all hope, for who could ever learn to love a beast?

"More Daddy, more!" she almost yelled, becoming impatient when he stopped reading.

"When you finish tidying before bed," he replied, smiling down at her.

She jumped out of bed and ran around her room, grabbing the toys from her bed and hurrying to put them away so she could hear more of her favourite story, all if things went her way. Running around her room, she had no idea just how much of an effect this story was going to have on her life.
