Reyna’s BatB Fic Recs
To celebrate hitting the 100 follower mark (!!!), here is a list of my fav BatB fics so far that are focused on Adam/Beast and Belle’s relationship. I’ll prolly be adding to this list as I read more.
* * *
But first, I want to remind you guys of something:
Stories take time and effort to write. As I writer myself, I know how excruciatingly awful writing can be but love it anyway bc im weird and how it feels to have someone recognize the effort that we writers put into the stories that we’ve shared with the readers.
In brief, leave a kudos. Write a comment.
Don’t know what to say? Pick your fav line and explain why it’s your fav! Keysmash! Did the author do something new with the characters? Tell them what you thought about it! Did you laugh, smile, wince at a certain part? Let them know! Too shy to say anything? Just write something like “Good job :)” or “I liked this!”.
Basically, the excitement you get at reading an amazing fic is the excitement we get for ppl reading and giving feedback on our fics, only multiplied bc these things are like our babies.
So please please please comment or give a kudos. They actually help motivate writers to write more, so if you liked a fic, be sure to tell the author! Who knows, maybe they’ll be inspired to write more fic bc you wrote an awesome review ;)

adam’s relationship over the course of their life together (WIP)

reunion with the servants. Because you know Adam would be excited more
by Belle being in love with him than by the curse being broken. (Complete)
Summary: “Not for the first time, Belle found herself curious
about the dusting of gold Plumette so often applied to the corner of her
eyes and the swell of her cheeks. ‘Actually. I did have one question.
How do you…’ She touched the side of her face to indicate where
Plumette’s skin shimmered.
'How do I do my makeup?’
Plumette shook her head in amazement. 'There were really no other girls in Villeneuve?’”
In which Belle makes a friend and learns more about her fiance. (Complete)

and the one time he had it as a human himself after the curse is broken. (Complete)

The Anchor by sancallisto

Chapter 3: A conversation that occurs the night following the breaking of the curse. A series of vignettes following Belle and Prince Adam based on the live-action Beauty and the Beast. No set number of chapters or timeline. (WIP)
(ok confession time so i actually haven’t read this yet but i’ve glanced through it and it looks AMAZING so yeah next free time i get imma read the whole darn thing in one sitting)
Summary: Everyone knows the Beast was selfish and unkind—which, of course, is exactly what a jealous enchantress would want the world to think. A retelling in which young Adam was an innocent victim caught up in his father’s past mistakes, and Belle a willing presence seeking to repay her own father’s debt. And with a vengeful witch on the loose, Gaston is the least of their worries. (WIP)
Summary: Her selflessness angered him, reminded him how much he did not deserve her or the child. She looked frightened when the midwife shooed him away. Now all the prince could think of were the worried eyes that had met his before the door slammed in his face. (Belle and Adam have their first child) (WIP)
