LITERALLY EVERYTHING ABOUT THIS PAIRING DEVASTATES ME TO MY CORE, AND NOW I AM GOING TO TELL YOU ABOUT IT
she loves him, this fascinating peculiar human-shaped thing who always looks so surprised when she laughs at his jokes, who sits on her father’s throne and holds her kingdom ransom but in private stutters when she comes near him. but she still decides to leave because he is cursed and cruel and not right, and she doesn’t want to stay if there is no hope for him, she deserves to be happy and free. and she comes back because regina tells her that true love’s kiss can make him whole again, make him real and touchable and lovable, and obviously that’s belle, have you seen her, come on
and oh my god she sees it as saving him, and he sees it as destroying him, cutting down his power, making him human and fragile and useless again, and alone and afraid, because now maybe he’s alone but he’s still the mightiest, and why would you be human if you’re just going to be pathetic and who would ever love him, certainly not this bright shining powerhouse of a girl, he’s a difficult man to love so he’s going to be a monster, monsters only need fear
and belle thinks this is BULLSHIT she thinks he’s a COWARD and how dare he insinuate that she doesn’t actually love him or want to kiss his strange rough sparkly mouth, belle does what she goddamn wants, that’s why she came with him, that’s why she laughs at his jokes, that’s why she decided to leave, that’s why she came back. belle is a hero and a relentless selfish force, her motivation for coming with him is save my family, sure, but it’s also MY CHANCE TO BE A HERO, my chance to prove in this shitty sexist world that i can be brave and mighty too
and now belle wants him and stalks him around the table, sits next to him and touches his leg and finds out she can turn him human and kisses him to make it so and poor rumpie just can’t believe it, would rather be vicious and alone and a monster than a man and a fool, and he tells her to leave and she does
and if we don’t see her again coming back to fix all this bullshit and take what’s hers, her power and her story and her strange funny wicked man, i will destroy everything you’ve ever loved
