The night we broke up my ex bought me a Beauty and the Beast necklace. I think it’s beautiful, but I’m never going to wear it because I can’t bear to move it from the spot he left it.

My stepfather passed away a few days ago, and I was closer to him than I am with my bio father. I’ve just been a huge mess lately and the one thing that’s helped me cope is watching Disney movies specifically ones that involve the characters who lose a parent or go throughout the movie without one like Frozen, Cinderella, Beauty & The Beast, Aladdin, etc. It may not seem like much, but with my loss, it’s the only thing I have right now.

MY mom passed away recently and very suddenly. She loved Disney movies and her favorite was Beauty and the Beast, In memory of her I decided to finish the piece I found in the piano from the transformation scene. I love you, mom.

I love Beauty and the Beast, it was my introduction to theatre when my highschool did it as the Spring musical and it has helped me through many breakups and whenever I feel sad it helps cheer me up.

When I was a kid, I loved Belle so much!  She had brown hair, hazel eyes, and loved books, just like me.  I identified with her.

But when I saw the 2017 version, and I saw the insanely beautiful Emma Watson, I felt depressed.  I know Belle is supposed to be hot, but seeing a live person with that kind of Beauty felt like Hollywood was saying, “Never forget that you’re not pretty enough to be Belle.  Only beautiful people get to be in the fairytale.”

All through my adulthood, I’ve liked boys, and even asked them out. But they’ve rejected me, or didn’t notice I existed. I was just that funny, brainy girl. And an already corrupted self image became worse.  I don’t feel like Belle, now. I feel like the Beast.

Days in The Sun makes my heart ache. So much like my family. We used to be so close and happy and now economic crisis brought fights and emotional distance. What I’d give to relive just one of those days in the sun, undo that’s done, and bring back the light. I so much relate to them. But seeing the castle staff so close and clinging to that last spark of hope it makes me wonder how can they share so much love and hope in those dark moments and we can’t?

Disney choosing to depict Gaston as a war veteran who loves violence and whose “happy place,” as LeFou put it, is envisioning blood and death is beyond insulting. My dad is a veteran and I’ve helped him through PTSD and panic attacks and to portray veterans like that isn’t just disrespectful, it’s also incredibly not funny no matter how hard the live action Beauty and the Beast tries to play it for comedy.

When I was little I thought the broken furniture in Beauty & the Beast were servants killed by the Beast. We were kinda poor so my mom got mops, chairs, and so on second handed from friends and charities. I treated those items with care because I thought they escaped from the abusive Beast.

Lumiere creeps me out because he reminds me so much of the chauvinistic womanizing old man from the movie “Gigi.” I am unable to have a rational discussion about him or the movie “Beauty and the Beast” as a result.
