I like your notes so much!!
However I relate to what you said about the beast, I also remember when it hit me I was 7 or 8 years old, I found him really interesting, there's something vague yet appealing about him, a beast from the outside with a good and tender heart in the inside, and Belle is a smart and strong princess and knew how to change his perception about the world, however when I became an adult, I was like "Wait a minute.. That's an animal, he somehow resembles a buffalo, that is such a creepy story!!" Childhood has been ruined I guess , however in real life beasts are beasts they never change for no one.
Oh they had to change him, he IS a handsome prince, the beast was a temporary issue, the story becomes more exciting with good looking characters hahaha
My parents were concerned because I always interested in the villain, specially the female villains, they're more interesting and complicated what can I sayWork for a cause not for Applause

Michael Phelps has won more Olympic medals than 91 countries
But Phelps has also won more medals than most countries competing in the Olympics. If you break down the all-time summer Olympics medal counts of every nation, Phelps has won more than 91 countries ever have, including Portugal, Peru, Singapore, Serbia, and 87 others (this count takes into account independent Olympic participants and mixed teams).Don't hate me because I'm right and you're not.

1. Make sure you are using the "share" link to the video, not the one in the taskbar.
2. Make sure you paste that link under "Edit Youtube Options" in your settings sidebar, not under "edit profile" even though there are options to do your youtube stuff there too.

In one of the versions (don't remember if it was Perrault's original story), one of the step-sisters chops off part of her foot for it to fit in the slipper (all original fairytales are kinda creepy). That's why I mentioned "Disney's Cinderella", children's movies are adaptations from those gory stories.
Yes, the logic of the prince is not very astute: "the first lady whose foot fits in this crystal slipper, must be the one I danced with"... didn't he recognize her face? Or at least cross out from the list the brunettes, I don't know..
I find that the first Disney princes (such as the one in Snow White, the first Disney animated movie) have no personality. That has changed with time, for example with the Beast, or in the newer ones, with Flynn Rider (Tangled, I love that movie). Then Frozen came and ruined everything: the good guy is an Owen Wilson on steroids, and the bad guy is smarter, prettier and with more personality (and he likes sandwiches). From a Disney/children's movie lesson-to-learn point of view, how am I going to know who I have to like if the good guy is an idiot? (The movie has endless flaws to me, but they are not related with our topic).
I don't think "realizing" the Beast is a buffalo-like animal changes anything from my childhood, because I'm still able to watch and appreciate movies with the same innocence as when I was little. Of course when I rewatch them (or if there are tongue-in-cheek comments that are aimed for an adult audience), I can have the dirtiest mind ever. What bothers me is that even if I like the Beast, I know that if I found a Beast in real life I wouldn't like it. The same with Zuko from Avatar, the Legend of Aang.. and talking about villains, I always like male villains more than the good guys (except in the Beauty and the Beast movie, because Gastón is like the alpha dog, and I hate alpha dogs). I think it's because in stories villains tend to have a more interesting back story than kind characters. When people ask me who my favourite Avenger is, I always answer "Loki". I don't care about evil, I like that he's crazy smart!MBTI: INTP (though I'm PINT-sized) * Ti = Ne > Fi > Ni > Si > Te = Se >>> Fe

I try to give tales like Disney the benefit of the doubt by treating it as some kind of Archetypal Psychological Myth... like maybe, the different characters and the ridiculously illogical progression of events relates to the irrational process by which the psyche of a person develops.
I just then had the idea of making a story, where at the end everyone is dead or fucked up and the whole place is destroyed, and then end with the line
And they all lived happily ever after...
