Added DiffLines:

* ''The Fire Rose'' (another one by Creator/MercedesLackey, this one nominally part of her ''Literature/ElementalMasters'' [though YMMV]. More importantly, this one doesn't start with the Beauty being called in so she can break the curse by falling in love with the Beast: the Beast is a magician and he needs her help to find a magical answer since she's skilled in the languages he needs her to decipher.)

** Also, depending on what version you're reading, "be good to those less fortunate" (or just "don't turn away a traveler.") Several variants (most famously the Disney film) portray the Beast's predicament as a result of refusing to allow a fairy to take shelter in his castle and getting cursed as punishment. However many of them provide no explanation or explain that the fairy was just evil and he got screwed.

'''[[http://www.surlalunefairytales.com/beautybeast/index.html "Beauty and the Beast"]]''' is an old French FairyTale that was, at the time, basically propaganda for ArrangedMarriage using RagsToRoyalty. Over time it has lost that meaning and become more romanticized. The original literary version of the story was written in 1740 by Gabrielle-Suzanne de Villeneuve, and was a sprawling and convoluted affair of {{contrived coincidence}}s and last-minute exposition, in which the Beast and Beauty were revealed to be [[DoubleInLawMarriage double]] [[KissingCousins first cousins]], [[HalfHumanHybrid half-fairy]] (on their mothers' side), and [[EverythingsBetterWithPrincesses royalty]] (on their fathers' side). In 1756, Jeanne-Marie Leprince de Beaumont condensed it to the version which is best known today (excepting Disney's). While presumably based on older tales, de Villeneuve's version is the first to use the title "Beauty and the Beast".

Beast", and the psychological plot -- revolving around Beauty's mental conflict -- is not found in folk tales prior to this one.
