Something I felt I should do. The first time I heard Beauty and the Beast fairy tale marked my sould very deeply when I was a small child. Or other reasons… unconsciously, the couples I love/loved most have this element in a way or another. So, after I fell for francille ship, I felt I had to do it.
From left to right: Abby Cable and Alec the Swampy Thing, Catherine and Vincent from 80´s Beauty and the Beast series (both of these marked my teenagerhood), Belle and Beast, Bulma and Vegeta from Dragonball Z, the Phantom of the Opera and Christine, Gwen and Kevin from Ben 10 cartoons, Tooth Fairy and Jack Frost from Rise of the Guardians, Rumpelstiltskin and Belle from Once Upon a Time and Francouer and Lucille from A Monster in Paris.
Not all these couples had their happy endings… too many times Abby and Alec were separated by fights, or because one of them died, etc. Catherine died at season 3, the Phantom and Christine, well, we know how it ends, Tooth and Jack aren´t officially a couple unless Rotg will have a sequel. Rumpel and Belle are always getting separated. Francille´s not even a canon couple. And Gwen and Kevin… well, Ben 10 fans know that they´re no longer what they used to be, both physically and in spirit. What happened to gwevin, especially, it still hurts me and I´ll never forgive the (ir)responsibles for that. But, as I said in the post, there´s never a definitive end. At least in fandom world things can be changed by more sensitive writers, even that by fanfiction writers.
