Written by [[https://www.fanfiction.net/u/7641468/greensearcher greensearcher]], Mirrors is an AlternateUniverseFic of ''Disney/BeautyAndTheBeast'', with the main difference being that the Beast was an innocent victim the entire time. One day, Adam finds an old man breaking into his castle, trying to steal valuables to pay for his wife's illness. Unable to part with his possessions(as they are actually his servants under the spell), but empathizing all too well with the man's situation, Adam gives him money to pay for medicine with the condition that he never speak of where he got the gold. When the old man and his ailing wife leave for Paris to see the city doctor, their daughter, Belle, grows curious about where her father got the gold, and decides to seek out their benefactor...

* InterclassRomance: Prince Adam, who is heir to the throne and commoner Belle, a farmer's daughter. Belle is rather worried about this, both when they become friends and as their relationship deepens, while Adam couldn't care less as he's much more concerned about his beastly form putting her off and that he has remarkably progressive and egalitarian views thanks to his mother's influence.
** His parents were a more downplayed version - his father was a Prince and his mother, while noble, was only the daughter of a minor baron, so of a much lower status than his arranged match to a foreign princess.



* NiceGuy: Adam is almost painfully sweet, more than explaining why Belle falls for him despite his form. [[spoiler: Also [[{{OriginalCharacter}} Henri]], Chip's father and Sophie's Love Interest.]] Belle and Sophie are female versions.

* KickTheDog: The enchantress does this to Adam every chance she gets. One that stands out is her attempt to convince Adam that Belle simply pities him, and has no chance of loving him.



* SingleTargetSexuality: Adam and Belle for each other. In Adam's case, it's because Belle is literally the first human woman he's ever met since he was cursed as a child. Belle, on the other hand, has never met anyone before Adam who piqued her interest.

''Everyone knows the Beast was selfish and unkind—which, of course, is exactly what a jealous enchantress would want the world to think. An AU in which young Adam was an innocent victim caught up in his father's past mistakes, and Belle a willing presence seeking to repay her own father's debt. And with a vengeful witch on the loose, Gaston is the least of their worries.''
