Beauty and the Beast

A Drawing from Beauty and the Beast - Number 6
Walter Crane - Belle Tells the Beast that She Loves Him

The Beast is dying from a broken heart because the big guy was just a softy at heart. Sure, he thought nothing of killing a man for taking a single rose. But when he couldn't get into Belle's pants this was the end of the world. Dating options are limited for talking Boars. The furry subculture had not yet been invented, this being Victorian England after all. So he was pretty stricken when Belle spurned his advances and his heart started to give way. Or it might have something to do with him walking around in heavy velvet clothes all day. Dehydration can be deadly.

Anyway, Belle saw that the Beast was dying when she looked through a magic mirror and so she teleported back to the castle using a magic ring that the Beast had given him. In this illustration she is bending over the Beast and telling him that she actually loves him. She was probably thinking that the guy is a goner anyway so it can't hurt to cheer him up. But, no, that is what the Beast had been waiting for all of these years, for a big nosed princess (she does kind of look like Princess Di, doesn't she?) to accept him the way he was, just so he could magically change into something else: a handsome human prince. Wow! If she could stand the sight of his furry boar face, then Belle was really going to like the knew look. The spell that had turned the prince into a velvet loving murderous boar was broken and he reverted to his original human form. Now the two could live happily ever after and admire his rose bush together. The End.
