As Ты can see from my icon-avatar-thingy, I just adore
Belle from the bottom of my heart. Why? Oh, only a hundred reasons! But, to make it short, I'll Список just a few. :D
I. She Loves Books
Obvious enough. The first couple of scenes of the movie, we could see her talking enthusiastically to the baker about a story she just read. Then, she proceeded to go to the bookstore and borrowed (or as it turned out, given) a book that she read all the way to her home.
Now, this gave positive remark to all young girls out there that they should read and be imaginative like Belle. After all, I, who fell in Любовь with this girl after watching her movie, promptly told my mum about how I want to be like her when I grow up. She said, "Read еще Книги and be brave, and don't judge someone by their appearances and you'll be like Belle in no time." I believed her, and it was the greatest Совет she'd ever дана to me.
II. She's Brave
First example; she was willing to be the Beast's prisoner for her father's freedom. секунда example; had anyone ever noticed that when she ran away from the замок and had herself surrounded by wolves, she fell off Philippe and the Волки attack him instead? Well at time, she had the opportunity to run away and leave his horse. Despite this fact, she went ahead and grab a stick, bravely protecting herself and her horse though there's a slim chance of survival. Stupid, Ты say? No, that was an admirable act of courage and sacrifice.
Then, off course, she was Храбрая сердцем to the Beast himself. The Beast practically screamed and yelled and threatened her to go to ужин with him. She refused. She refused a huge, hairy, scary beast. If that wasn't brave, I don't know what is.
Also, there's the scene where she saved the Beast from the wolves' attacks and treat his wounds. He cried, "THAT HURTS!" quite loudly, and Ты could see that his scream even made Belle's hair flew a little (when Ты watched the movie for about fifty times, you'd notice these things :p). What did Belle do? She fought back. She pointed how the Beast should learn to control his temper. She told a monster to control his temper. Again, this was very Храбрая сердцем of her (I would faint at the sight of him alone :p)
III. She Cares for Her Family
Imagine this; you're dancing with your boyfriend in a grand ballroom, and he asked Ты if you're happy или not. What do Ты say?
"Yes, I'm happy with Ты here. Let's dance,"
Probably that. But no, Belle thought of his father. With a loving man (well, kinda) and a замок and a friendly crew of Зачарованная object and beautiful dresses, she still thought about Maurice. This is why I like her so much. She didn't forget about her family when she's in Любовь and rushed down to her dad when she knew he was sick.
There's also the thing where she sacrificed her own freedom for her father's but that's been discussed in the Назад point.
IV. She Doesn't Just Like People for Their Looks
This is self-explanatory isn't it? I mean, rejecting Gaston and loving a beast and being Друзья with households reflects "Don't Judge a Book by Its' Cover" perfectly, no?
V. She's Odd
In case Ты missed the Belle's Song from her first appearances, the whole town was talking about her and using adjectives and words like "rather odd", "heads in the clouds", "funny girl", "very different from the rest of us" etcetera.
My point? Well, she's weird! Strange, unique, different, bookworm, nerd, dork -- whatever Ты want to call her, it's fine. Because the fact is, she was viewed as odd and not like other girls her age by everyone.
"Oh, she's so pretty, if only she was normal,"
Change the "pretty" to "talented", "smart", или any adjectives Ты like, and many girls can relate to Belle. I mean, how many people in high school feel that they don't fit in and is the weird one in the group? They often had very low self-esteem, but Belle proved that Ты can still have a happy life by being yourself.
Well, that's it. Five reasons why We/I Любовь Belle. Enjoy! :D
Ps. I might do another Princess if Ты want to. :p
