“You must know… surely, you must know it was all for you. You are too generous to trifle with me. I believe you spoke with my aunt last night, and it has taught me to hope as I’d scarcely allowed myself before. If your feelings are still what they were last April, tell me so at once. My affections and wishes have not changed, but one word from you will silence me forever. If, however, your feelings have changed, I will have to tell you: you have bewitched me, body and soul, and I love, I love, I love you. I never wish to be parted from you from this day on.” —Mr. Darcy, Pride and Prejudice (2005)
It was a sticky situation, one that had you treading lightly. You felt like you were leading a double life, and it was beginning to wear on your nerves. You loved Murphy, but you also loved your brother. You just wished you wouldn’t have to choose one or the other in the end.
With the 25th Anniversary of Beauty and the Beast upon us, I have become more obsessed with the movie than I already am. (It is my all-time favorite movie.) And it got me thinking about my OTP Clexa, as well. As anybody done a fic as Clexa in a re-imagining of Beauty and the Beast, because there are a lot of similarities.
We have the first meeting that highlight the differences between the characters:
Clarke and Belle standing up to an intimidating figure (that every other character fears):
Beast and Lexa saving Belle and Clarke (showing the reason why every other character fears them):
Something changes, and the couples begin to see their similarities while also becoming softer towards each other:
Bowing to each other, cementing their newly discovered mutual respect:
Belle and Clarke saying goodbye, while Beast and Lexa are sad but understanding:
A battle occurs where Beast and Lexa come to a tragic end:
Belle and Clarke finally realize the true extent of their feelings at the worst time:
Not to worry, though, because death is not the end:
Finally, listen to the lyrics of Beauty and the Beast and try to convince they don’t fit Clexa:
Tale as old as time
True as it can be
Barely even friends
Then somebody bends
Just a little change
Small, to say the least
Both a little scared
Neither one prepared
Beauty and the beast
