What You Don’t Know About Beauty and the Beast:
Some backstory: due to this little discussion, I was considering writing a continuation/expansion of Beauty and the Beast. I read up on it and found out everything I thought I knew about it was wrong.
-It was created by one, singular, female author in 1740: Madame Gabrielle-Suzanne Barbot de Villeneuve
-It is not a retelling of a pervasive folklore like Perrault’s Cinderella, for example. It was influenced by folklore but is an original story and is very “post” the fairy tales you might be familiar with. The story is also influenced by women who gathered together and told each other revisions of fairy tales in Parisian salons.
-It’s over 100 pages long
-Though written simply and in a straightforward manner, the characters have personalities and are much more complex in their emotions than a normal folkloric tale. They behave in a diverse and fairly realistic manner to their situations. The Beast’s mother in particular is a complex woman, protective of her son and a capable military leader but not progressive in her attitude towards marrying below your station.
-Women are overwhelmingly the masters of the plot and outnumber the men in number and priority.
Female players include:
A nice Fairy
A jerk Fairy (called Mother of the Seasons)
The Queen of the Fairies
A Fairy-who-is-a-Queen (these are different)
A Queen/the Beast’s mother
Belle’s shallow (though fairly realistically so) sisters who are treated as a collective
-It contains considerable world-building. Fairy language, Fairy law, Fairy influence over monarchies, Fairy hierarchy, Fairy magic are all things she depicts. (eat your heart out, Tolkien fans).
-The curse is broken halfway through the book. The rest is devoted to comments on class, monarchy, marrying for love vs. status, appropriate conditions for love, and marrying below your station among other things.
-The Beast is cursed to punish his mother.
-The book’s plot turns out to be entirely due to the machinations of The Mother of the Seasons and the long-game trap/revenge story orchestrated by the Nice Fairy to defeat The Mother of the Seasons Fairy.
-The book takes place in a specific time period rather than in a nebulous “before-time”, somewhere, as I figure, between 1669 to the early 1700s. It might even be contemporaneous to when it was published. It references the age piracy, revolutions, the merchant class, the presence of slavery, Belle watching comedies, operas, and plays the Fair of St. Germain, and a Janissary battle.
-The Beast’s Queen mother led troops into battle for several years, put down a revolt and defeated an encroaching enemy monarch.
And this is only a partial list.
If you’d like to read the original version by Madame de Villeneuve, it’s collected in a book by J. R. Blanche.
It’s available for free:
Archive.org (they don’t mention her name in the author list but it’s there)

Why do i even…
Under the sea played on bottles?!
…It all makes sense now O.O
WHAT IF WHEN THEYRE OLDER THEY GET TAKEN BACK TO NARNIA AND BECOME THE FOUR FOUNDING MOTHERS AND FATHERS AND CHANGE THEIR NAMES AND HOGWARTS IS REALLY IN NARNIA WHICH IS WHY MUGGLES CANT SEE IT
BUT REALLY THINK ABOUT IT LIKE THEIR PERSONALITIES REALLY GO WITH THE HOUSES. PETER IS THE COURAGEOUS ONE. SUSAN IS THE SMART ONE. EDMUND TOTALLY BETRAYED THEM AT OE POINT. AND LUCY IS THE SMALL UNDERESTIMATED ONE WHO IS ACTUALLY AWESOME SOMETIMES.
"WHO IS REALLY AWESOME SOMETIMES" MAN WITHOUT LUCY THEY WOULD NEVER EVER HAVE GOTTEN TO NARNIA, SHE WAS THE ONE WHO FOUND OUT ABOUT IT FIRST
BECAUSE HUFFLEPUFFS ARE PARTICULARLY GOOD FINDERS
HUFFLEPUFFS ARE PARTICULARLY GOOD FINDERS
OKAY WAIT A SECOND
EDMUND IS NOT A SLYTHERIN SIMPLY BECAUSE HE “BETRAYED THEM AT ONE POINT”
He’s a Slytherin because he’s ambitious and cunning. He knows what he wants and he’s been offered a way to get it. (And PS: he betrayed them because his siblings were totally rotten to him, and then he stumbled into this land where a nice woman gave him things and told him he was special, like the whole Death Eater thing, which means only that he was doing what he thought was better than being yelled at all day by his family.)
Slytherins are clever, shrewd, ambitious, and they are loyal to what serves them best. Edmund is also clever, ambitious, and has that element of trickery and mischief about him trademark of Slytherins.
Sure, he screwed up. Not everyone’s perfect. He may have done something he wasn’t proud of, but here’s the thing:
He’s not proud of it. He’s ashamed of what he did.
He comes back to Aslan’s camp and he looks at them apologetically. His look says, I’m sorry. I’m sorry I put you in danger and I’m sorry I messed up.
He’s a brilliant, shrewd boy, and he checks himself and ends up fighting for the “good” side with the “good” Gryffindor, Hufflepuff, and Ravenclaw.
So no, Edmund is not a Slytherin because he betrayed his family.
He’s a Slytherin because he’s cunning, ambitious, loyal to his cause (but can change), resourceful, and he’s a self-preserver.
