Wait, is this a crossover? And how come the love that the prince and the princess have for each other isn't enough to break their curses? Also where is the boy? I think t'will be he.
| The Hazel Purple Skyline chapter 31 . 1/18
It was a great story, and I really, really enjoyed the fairytale retelling. However, I find it difficult to accept that Cece gave up Bastien who told her a handful of lies out of love for her and fear that the Beast was doing something terrible to her for a man who is Bastien's father, impregnated his own niece, (by the way, you never did address the possibility you brought up about Bastien not being Tristan's son) and killed many woman after they became pregnant with his child.
A fairytale retelling does not have to stick strictly to the original plot, and I do think that it would have been more interesting if you chose to change the ending.
I also really enjoyed your style of writing in the beginning chapters, but towards the end I felt that there were too many details left untold. I would actually have accepted the romance between Cece and Tristan if there really were more romantic moments, but she spends half the story denying that she loves him, and then at the end of the story she is suddenly willing to overlook all his evils (how come God really just forgives him for all he did because he fell in love with a maiden and she loved him back, anyways?) and marry him. Whereas Bastien, whom there were actually many moments with (more than with the Beast anyways, in my opinion), was cast away because he told her a few lies when he himself wasn't even sure that the truth was healthy for her.

Really fascinating, even though it was sad that what's-her-face died. But there's one thing I don't get. If the curse was spreading, couldn't they have just cut off the hand before it spread? You said it was like a snakebite so I'm not sure if it would work for that. But it just seemed like everyone accepted her fate without even looking for a solution. Anyway, loving your story so far.

I ADORED your story! Certainly one of my favorites and I can promise to read it again in the future. I really do love it.
Other than a few minor errors- I believe something was said toward the beginning that contradicted facts you had written earlier... Very small, not even worth mentioning with how wonderful this story was-
You never mention the large age gap again. When the prince enters the story in his beast form, you go into detail and explain the gray fur and everything... But after he becomes human again none of the other characters mention it at all and you mention Erian/ Cecelia's real father had dark hair and that Sally would have had dark hair if she had stayed out of the sun. That's the only part that confuses me. 3

I really like this chapter actually. The beast is probably ur deepest character yet. I love the insight on him that u provide. Additionally I also love the flashbacks - showing that he truly did feel something for imogene other than sexual attraction. It provides a tasty little dilemma - it would be different if he just though of her as another conquest, then his sin would be much more black and white. But since he did indeed hold some affection for Imogene, their only sin was in the fact that they were so closely related (which, historically, wasn't a very big deal at all and often practiced and even encouraged and preferred by those of royal lineage. But for the sake of the story, we'll pretend it is) .
Overall, this chapter was quite enjoyable.

Cece and Bastian feel very young to me, more like 16/17 rather than 20/21. I really wish u would've taken more time with 'the big family secret reveal' than u did. It was very rushed. One second cece is knocking on the door to her father's shop and the next second he just blurts out "I'm not ur Father" a conversation like that needs to be more drawn out and full of way more emotion. Cece's 'tears ' just weren't believable. And when dealing with something this heavy, u really need to take ur time and let the characters thoughts and actions show how they're feeling rather than the words they say.
And just a suggestion, but wouldn't cece had been a little less shocked about all this? I mean come on, her eyes are made of glass! I don't think it would have been much of a surprise to find out that the old man wasn't her father. She had to have been at least a little suspicious about her true origins, the girl isnt stupid. Her reaction was... over the top and expected. And maybe even a little juvenile considering her age.
Overall I just wish the entire exchange were longer and more carefully thought out :-/

Okay this chapter felt a little rushed to me, as did the one before. The main thing that bothers me is this: why can't Bastian go with her to the castle? He has every right as she does to discover the truth about his parents and his birth. I personally think it would be much more interesting if he continued his quest as well.
And it also bothers me that Bastian seems to forget about his quest so quickly and easily just because he meets a pretty girl. I mean he claims to be so devastated by the truth of his parentage that he locks himself away and shortly after embarks on a journey for truth and closure. But as soon as he meets cece all that motivation just vanishes! I know this is a fairytale, but that just makes his character too simple and shallow.
And speaking of his character, why is he so... happy? I'm not saying he should dark and depressed or whatever but he does mention how despite his status, people still shun him for reasons unknown (to him at least). Yeah sure he grew up in a normal family and whatnot but considering the circumstances of his birth and all the rumors flying around about him... his character should have so much more depth than just a rejected love interest.
And speaking of bis character

this was a beautiful story!

When opinion is asked for, opinion is given. Personally I think the story went downhill from the moment she lost her memory. The writing was sloppy, the events were rushed and characters didn't get a chance to be cleared. The ending was rushed and most things are left unexplained like did Basiten marry anyone? etc. Good story but I think - think - you need a rewrite.

This was...interesting. I'm quite unsure it's historically accurate (not the whole turning into glass and beasts but the uproar over incest, it was quite common actually) but it's a story so what does it matter really? Anyway, lovely thing. Well done
