Monster and the Maiden Fair

the monster & the maiden fair meme

There's a long precedent in folklore and myth of beautiful young people - both men and women - being kidnapped by monsters: dragons, beasts, goblins, demons, elves, vampires, wolves, or even evil humans. In the end, however, these prisoners are almost always rescued and brought back to civilization to live a normal and happy life.

But what if they didn't want to leave their jailor?

They've seen behind the surface and have begun to sympathize with this "monster;" no, more than that, they've fallen for them. Will this story have a happy ending? Will the monster believe that anyone could love them? Most importantly, though, can the two of them be left alone without any attempts at a "rescue?"

how to play
  • Comment with your character, your preference, and what role they'll play. Feel free to AU characters to your desire role.
  • Reply to others.
  • Thread anything that could remotely fit under the umbrella theme. Was the kidnapping just that, or did both parties know (and care) for each other before, making it a collaborative, mutual effort? Perhaps you'd prefer to play the actual Beauty and The Beast-style getting to know each other or seeing behind the grizzly facade. What about an attempted "rescue?" Or maybe you could thread out a scene where the prisoner runs away from the society they were forced back into and returns to their beloved beast! It's all up to you. You could even do smut if you wanted to, but this isn't a smut meme.

//They're a kid, so probably something more platonic than anything, though they wouldn't mind calling it a romance. More likely the 'maiden', but monster's alright too.

[Can be beauty or the beast, as he's a terrifying dragon in human form, but far from unkind (to those who deserve said kindness.) However, I also don't object to pairing him with another beast, while Fou-Lu himself also plays a beast role. Tentatively, I could AU him to just be a horn-headed human for a "full beauty" role.]

[love the screen name. How would you feel about a different sort of Beast? Hunter is from Beastly canon, which is a modern spin on the age-old story.]
