randomness from a dark and twisty person

"Belle, I may be big and scary, but sometimes people aren’t what they look like on the outside." I want you to remember that. Really. It’s super important. Belle looked at Beast, and even though he was big and hairy and smelly and kind of ugly, she could tell that there was really something deep down really good about him. So she fell in love with him. And that kind of love, Hope, that kind of love lasts forever.
