As 당신 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 list 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 사랑 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 더 많이 책 and be brave, and don't judge someone 의해 their appearances and you'll be like Belle in no time." I believed her, and it was the greatest 조언 she'd ever given to me.
II. She's Brave
First example; she was willing to be the Beast's prisoner for her father's freedom. 초 example; had anyone ever noticed that when she ran away from the 성 and had herself surrounded 의해 wolves, she fell off Philippe and the 늑대 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, 당신 say? No, that was an admirable act of courage and sacrifice.
Then, off course, she was 메리다와 마법의 숲 to the Beast himself. The Beast practically screamed and yelled and threatened her to go to 공식 만찬, 저녁 식사 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 당신 could see that his scream even made Belle's hair flew a little (when 당신 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 메리다와 마법의 숲 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 당신 if you're happy 또는 not. What do 당신 say?
"Yes, I'm happy with 당신 here. Let's dance,"
Probably that. But no, Belle thought of his father. With a loving man (well, kinda) and a 성 and a friendly crew of 마법에 걸린 사랑 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 사랑 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 이전 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 프렌즈 with households reflects "Don't Judge a Book 의해 Its' Cover" perfectly, no?
V. She's Odd
In case 당신 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 당신 want to call her, it's fine. Because the fact is, she was viewed as odd and not like other girls her age 의해 everyone.
"Oh, she's so pretty, if only she was normal,"
Change the "pretty" to "talented", "smart", 또는 any adjectives 당신 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 당신 can still have a happy life 의해 being yourself.
Well, that's it. Five reasons why We/I 사랑 Belle. Enjoy! :D
Ps. I might do another Princess if 당신 want to. :p
