Beauty and the Beast au
I know that a lot of my au’s are never based on ships and I understand that not every au needs to revolve around a ship. Trust me I know the pain. But here’s my own take on a beauty and the beast au. Because why not.
Every time I see a B&B au, it usually has Lance being the beauty. But to me I totally see Lance as the Beast of the story. I mean seriously, a bratty kid who is obsessed with his looks, that Lance to a ’T’. Soooo:
-Lance is the Prince, he’s kinda snobby and really focuses on his looks.
-I really want to make Allura the witch/fairy? But I’m going to go with Haggar being the magic fairy woman.( man I really need to rewatch beauty & the Beast)
-so pretty much, Lance refuses to let Haggar in to his castle, and out of rage she curses him into this Beast, and tells him that if he was able to get anyone to Love him before his 20th birthday, the curse would be lifted. She also throws in comments about how no one could love him in such a form and etc.
- so years go by and Lance lost all hope about finding someone who will love him, he can’t even love himself.
-so in a nearby village, our beauty( project who ever you want to be: Shiro, Keith, Hunk, Pidge, Allura, whoever you ship him with) is going on with life, wishing to find out more in the world.
-Zarkon would be Gaston, wanting to be the best man in town and not taking no for answer.
-Zarkon wants beauty to be his, but he/she says no way, not in a million years. But of course he can’t take no for an answer.
-so speed forward to where our beauty finds the castle, looking for his/her father, and he/she makes the deal with Lance to stay in the castle with him to let their father go free.
-and it’s pretty awkward at first, Lance hasn’t really flirted with anyone, let alone talk to anyone in years. He’s pretty abrasive and is quick to assume the worst.
-so our beauty tries to run from this crazy beast, only to get surrounded by wild animals, and they fight at first, but start to get overwhelmed.
-and Lance rushes in and protects him/her. But gets injured during the battle.
-beauty takes Lance back to the castle and tends to his wounds, and giving him a stern talking to about how to treat another person. He may be out of practice, but hats no reason to be rude.
-so he/she stays, and they start to get to know each other. They realize that Lance isn’t such a bad guy, he’s just been alone for who knows how long. And he’s trying so hard to not scare him/ her away. He likes having someone to talk to. To show things and experience things he hasn’t done in so long.
-Lance is starting to learn to love himself again, but he knows that he does have long. His 20th birthday is creeping up on him, and once that deadline passes, he’ll be stuck like that forever.
-after spending months with Lance, our beauty is staring to have feelings for him, because he isn’t hiding who he is anymore, he’s being honest and very kind with them.
-but then beauty gets word that Zarkon has heard of the Beast in the castle, and is coming to kill him and claim the castle as his.
-Lance doesn’t know who this Zarkon is, but he does know that our beauty can’t stay. Or else they will be in danger.
-so he sends them away, tells them to leave and find their father.
-but this is (Shiro,Keith,Pidge,Hunk,Allura) we’re talking about. No way are they going to leave behind the only person who has become their best friend. Their only friend.
-so he/she stays to fight.
-big battle ensues, and to save our Beauty, Lance takes a fatal blow. In the process, he throws Zarkon over a cliff.
-and during his last moments, beauty tells him that they Love him.
-Lance is back to being a human, and he and his beauty live happily ever after!
So there you go, my version of a beauty and the beast au. I hope you all liked it, and don’t be afraid to ask questions.
