Of Beast and Beauty by Stacey Jay

In the beginning was the darkness, and in the darkness was a girl, and in the girl was a secret...

In the domed city of Yuan, the blind Princess Isra, a Smooth Skin, is raised to be a human sacrifice whose death will ensure her city’s vitality. In the desert outside Yuan, Gem, a mutant beast, fights to save his people, the Monstrous, from starvation. Neither dreams that together, they could return balance to both their worlds.

Isra wants to help the city’s Banished people, second-class citizens despised for possessing Monstrous traits. But after she enlists the aid of her prisoner, Gem, who has been captured while trying to steal Yuan’s enchanted roses, she begins to care for him, and to question everything she has been brought up to believe.

As secrets are revealed and Isra’s sight, which vanished during her childhood, returned, Isra will have to choose between duty to her people and the beast she has come to love.

Beauty and The Beast Short Story With Pictures

A wealthy merchant falls into penury after his ships founder at sea. He moves his family to the countryside to live a more frugal lifestyle. His six daughters and six sons resent the loss of their comfortable life, their social engagements, and their many admirers. His youngest daughter, Beauty, is the only one to make the best of the circumstances, throwing herself into the daily upkeep of the home in order to keep the family clean and fed. Her older sisters, who are less beautiful and less dutiful, resent her, and they mock her for contenting herself with menial work. Then, the merchant receives a welcome surprise: One of his ships, thought to be lost at sea, has come safely to harbor with its full cargo. His children think their fortune will surely be restored.

The marketing around the new live-action Beauty and the Beast has been nonstop, but so have the half-baked hot takes looking for what's problematic in this story. To be clear, we're not saying there's nothing wrong with Beauty and the Beast or the classic fairy tale it's based upon—but the endless parade of "OMG BATB is about being attracted to a furry! It's a movie based on a fairy tale! It doesn't have to make logical sense to make emotional sense. It's a magical love story; maybe we don't need to spend hours debating whether or not Belle is a feminist which, for the record, she's technically not; feminism as we currently understand it started a full century after Beauty and the Beast was written, so even if you see Belle as an embodiment of feminist ideals, you can't align her with a movement that didn't exist when the character was alive.
