So ,,,, Otayuri Beauty & the Beast AU ,,,, I really have no way to make sense of this since the Beast suits Yurio more, but…I really just wanted to draw Yuri being impressed when he sees Beka in beast form lmao
- You think you could be happy here? - Can anybody be happy if they aren’t free?
I think we can all agree that this is one of the best lines the 2017 adaptation brought us. And it gets better if you think about Belle’s response in the context of that scene.
In both the animation and the Broadway musical, Belle goes basically “Yes, I am happy here, yes, I want to stay with you, but I miss my father.”
In the 2017 version, Belle is more like “I can’t even figure out what I am feeling for you since technically I am still your prisoner, so let’s address it.” Basically, she brought up the issue of her freedom only after the Beast started to talk about feelings.
