Authors, and Websites - Disney Film
Stories focused on the family and the friendly relationships of the cast. Plot-focused stories or light day-in-the-life stories. Pretty much anything that isn't focused on romance.

• Synopsis: One of the most involved crossovers I've ever read. It brings together all the classic Disney princess movies that had come out at the time and were in the same time frame. The Children of all the famous Disney princes and princesses go on an epic journey to find the witch that cursed the Beast.
• Pairing(s): Most of the kids end up paired off to one another by the end, true to their Disney roots, and the author follows canon pairings for their parents.

- Pairing(s): Gaston/OC
- Synopsis: Remember the Gaston from the film who Belle said was the true "beast"? This fanfic puts Gaston in the Beast's shoes by having him transformed into a dwarf (not a beast, but close enough) by the same Enchantress who cursed the Beast and then following Gaston through the years as he tries various plans to reverse the curse.

The Fairest of Them All
