Once upon a time, five years ago, Red Riding Hood and Belle met in Granny’s Diner.
Ruby and Belle first met in episode 2.04, the Crocodile, which first aired on October 21, 2012. The Red Beauty fandom has seen a lot of great content over the past five years, and now is a good time to celebrate the past five years with an Anniversary Weekend. This is not a traditional Red Beauty Week, though I’m hoping to run another one in 2018 if there’s still interest. This anniversary weekend will be held Friday, October 20-Sunday, October 22.
Here are the prompts for the weekend:
October 20: Why You Love Red Beauty
This day is to celebrate why you love Red Beauty. You can write about, draw fanart or make gifs of your favorite Red Beauty moments, write meta about why Ruby and Belle have the (wasted) potential to work well as a couple and/or a Beauty and the Beast story. You can even write about the personal impact of Red Beauty or the fandom. Whatever you want to do to express your love of Red Beauty works.
October 21: Fanwork Appreciation or Remix
This day is to celebrate all of the amazing fanworks our fandom has created. Whether you want to rec your favorite fics and other fanworks or shoutout to your favorite authors and artists, let’s celebrate our favorite fanworks. Alternatively or in addition to, you can also remix your favorite works. Does your favorite fic need art, a moodboard, or a playlist? Is your favorite art or gifset begging for a fic to be written about it? This is your chance.
Note: If any writers or artists are uncomfortable with their works being part of the remix, let me know and I’ll add your name to a list.
October 22: New Content
This is the day to post brand new Red Beauty fics, arts, gifs, playlists, vids, headcanons, etc. You can also update your old Red Beauty WIPs with new chapters, as this day will most likely coincide with the third @wipweek.
Tag all entries with the usual #redbeautyweek tag and it will be reblogged to the blog.
Belle needs her friend Ruby to pretend to be her girlfriend at a family reunion and Ruby is happy to play along. As the ruse goes on, Ruby realizes that not only does she enjoy being referred to as ‘Belle’s girlfriend’, but she has also fallen in love with her friend.
