Beauty and the Beast has always been my favorite fairy tale. I grew up with the Disney version, and while I dearly love it, I crave adaptations that are darker, more adult, and far more complex. (Any recommendations? Yes, I've read the Robin McKinley versions.) Here is one of my personal interpretations of Beauty and her mysterious monster.
