Things That Are Not And Should Be...

Beauty and the Beast fandom (and dare I say modern fandom) was created from the ashes of  a story.  People needed to right wrongs, to go in different directions, to explore different universes.

These are tales that take off.  They are from worlds that veered away from canon somewhere either before or during the series.

I hope you enjoy.

Another Time

Rated R – Adult for Sexual situations, violence and mentions of miscarriage (but doesn’t happen)

For Winterfest 2021

An AU of Though Lover’s Be Lost.  Vincent presses and Catherine tells him about the baby. 

After watching the episode (again and again) I couldn’t let Vincent carry that kind of guilt that would come from him knowing that if he had only pushed things would have been different.

 The writers thought they knew what Catherine’s  fate would be.  Little did they know…

Although far from canon, I hope you find this story a worthy one.
