We're glad you've stopped by - whether it's to advertise or peek around! We've got a really great group of friendly writers, eager to plot with you! Along with the OUAT canons we have available, we accept characters from major Disney animated films, fairy tales, and folk tales.
kingdom of birth: Enchanted Forest ; Nameless Kingdom
occupation: Librarian; Pawn Shop Helper
sexual orientation: Heterosexual
height/weight/body: Belle is of average height for most females though some would say she is shorter than most, as well as average weight, being slim yet fit enough.
hair: Belle's hair is a chestnut brown that is kept long and usually down. On occasion it is put up into a ponytail so she can work with her books, or worn half up and half down. Belle takes pride in her hair and has no reason to cut it.
eyes: Belle's inquisitive eyes are a pretty brown, normal shape and size, with no sight problems. They are always open in wonder, soaking in everything she sees and always searching for more.
distinguishing features: Belle does not necessarily have any distinguishing features that can be visibly seen. She has a few birthmarks in places only some have seen.
style: Belle is actually quite fashionable considering she was locked away for so many years and came from the Enchanted Forest. She prefers skirts and dresses over pants any day. Some say her skirts are a bit short but for her they are the perfect length. She also tends to wear high heels. She likes neat patterns and pretty colors.
No matter what is done to Belle, she seems to forgive quite easily. She believes in the good of every person, even if it is deep down within that person, and strives to bring it out of them. Whether it is with a kind word or a helpful hand, she doesn't ever want to give up on someone. Forgiveness is something she feels everyone deserves, even if the person doesn't believe it themselves.
Ever since Belle was a small child, her mind craved information of all sorts. She loved and still loves books and what lays within them. She craves information from both people and places, and can often be seen studying things she does not understand. The people of Storybrooke often go to her with complicated research because she both loves it greatly and she has a knack for finding hard to get information.
Despite not being the hero everyone things she can be, and despite her past, Belle has a brave soul. She is willing to help in whatever way she can and has learned form her past mistakes. She is willing to put herself in harm's way to help a friend and while in the past she only thought of herself and her memories, she has learned that helping only one's self is not the way to go
While Belle's forgiveness may be a moral strength of hers, it is also a weakness. She is too quick to allow someone back into her life after they have wronged her and this may get her into more trouble in the end. She sees past the bad and only tries to see the good but everyone has a little bad in them, even her. To be balanced good and bad must work together, but Belle is quick to dismiss the bad and let the good in, regardless of what the person has done to her.
Possible Dark Side:
When Belle was turned into Lacey, she had not control over her self, but she was dark and was not her usual self. The thing is, while Lacey, she enjoyed being Lacey. She enjoyed not always taking the high road and always doing the right thing. Will this darkness ever cross into the Belle?
While Belle loves the books and adores being able to help the heroes with whatever problems they may have, she is taken advantage of and lets people do so. People do not take her bravery into account that often, only her brain and go to her for the knowledge she possesses, but they do not really see her to her fullest potential. She does not stick up for herself in this regard and misses out on a lot of adventure and hero work.
If there is anything Belle likes most, it is books. She loves the knowledge they bring, the smell they emit, and the feel of the paper as she cracks them open. She loves all types of books and in the new day of age she had even taken to the ebooks that the youngsters have shown her, though there is nothing like a good old fashioned book in her hands.
Belle is always craving more and more information and she really enjoys sitting down and searching for the answers to her, and others, questions. She has begun to research on the computer but she is used to digging deep within the books to find out hidden information and she is really good at it. Most people will go to her if they need something looked up or information found.
Being locked up for so many years with nothing but gruel to eat made Belle appreciate the food she discovered after she was set free. She loves the taste the new world brings with all its flavors and she is willing to try just about anything at least once.
Belle would rather the truth be told to her, even if it hurts or is something she does not want to hear. It is a betrayal when she finds out someone has lied to her, though she usually ends up forgiving the person. Still, honesty means someone completely trusts her to tell her the truth, and in return they will receive complete honesty from her.
She has no true reason for her dislike of birds other than the fact that they creep her out. Luckily she doesn't have to interact with them on a regular basis.
dislikes small spaces:
Since she was locked up for so many years by Regina, Belle has come to dislike small spaces in general. The tiny cell was not only cramped, but she often felt as if the walls were closing in on her. From the moment she was set free into the wide, open space of Storybrooke, she tries to never to be caught in small spaces.
icing on the cake .
worst fear: losing Rumple to complete darkness
deepest secret: belle's secret of not helping anna and being selfish is something she never wanted to get out
deepest desire: having children despite the potential of him/her being magical
special skills: bright mind and large heart
overall personality .
In general, Belle is an extremely intelligent and curious woman who goes the extra length to help her friends and find out the most important and hard to find information. Growing up she always had her head stuck in a book and now that she is all grown up, nothing has changed. Her thirst for knowledge is great and she has a wonderful knack of finding the hardest information to find, as well as reading hard to know languages.
Belle loves greatly, to the point where is sometimes clouds of her judgment. She wants the very best of a person and gives the very best of her to them in return. This view may make her naive and she tends to forgive more times than necessary. This could be her downfall as letting someone take advantage of her love over and over could be disastrous in the long run. Still, she believes in the good of everyone and things they all deserve a second, or third, chance.
Belle has a dark side brought out by magic and while under this influence she was a completely different person. She didn't care about rules and liked to see a little suffering. This is not at all like the Belle everyone knows, but if she ever turned dark again, people better watch out.
family ties .
residence: Storybrooke, Maine - Gold House
partner: Rumple/ Mr. Gold - The Dark One- Pawnshop Owner-Husband
mother: Colette- Mother-Deceased
father: Maurice French - Father - Florist
other important relatives: None
Belle French was born to Colette and Maurice French in the Enchanted Forest. She was both loved and protected her entire life, almost to the point of being smothered. During the Ogre War, her mother was killed and her father was losing greatly. She lost all memory of what happened to her mother and this led her on an adventure where she both gained and lost a friendship, but also learned just how her mother died protecting her. When the war was at a breaking point s deal was struck and she became the caretaker to The Dark One. She was whisked away to his castle, never to return to her father or fiance again, but she knew she was doing it for her people and family.
At first she was homesick and scared of the beast that lived within the castle. Over time, she learned that her new home held many mysteries, the biggest one being the Dark One himself. Being his maid, she cleaned his home and clothes, but that was not enough for her. Her questioning mind caused her to ask question after question and while the Dark One was annoyed at first, something changed. Over time, Belle fell in love with the beast, finding his inner human still there and finding she loved him despite everything he did.
The beast loved her back but could not admit it, so he cast her off and told her never to return. Heartbroken, Belle did just that, but she knew she could not let her true love get away. She vowed to come back to her beast but when she tried, she was kidnapped by Regina, the Evil Queen. Little did Belle know that the Queen was casting a dark curse and when she woke, she was in a strange place with no memories of the past.
Belle was locked away in the Storybrooke Asylum underneath the hospital, with only the visiting eyes of the queen. One fateful night the Mad Hatter freed her to spite Regina and told her to find a Mr. Gold. He would be the one to protect her. She did as she was told and walked into his shop, still not knowing what was going on. The man before her looked like he had seen a ghost and he took her to the woods, she still in the dark. With a kiss and a curse broken, her memories returned with the purple wind, she knowing who she was and who her true love was. He was standing before her, still the Dark One, but her Dark One. She made him promise despite all that Regina had done, not to kill or hurt her. She was stuck under the hospital for 30 years and she had a lot to catch up on in the strange, new place. This included reuniting with her father only to have a falling out when he tried to have her cross the town line so she would not be with Rumple.
Rumple wanted to find his lost son and Belle wanted to love all of Rumple. She told him she would stick by him even after he lied to her about using magic because she believed he could change. She helped him with the ingredients to find his son and as Rumple crossed the town line, the scarf and potion worked, he retaining his memories. As they went for one last kiss, Hook came out of nowhere and shot Belle, causing her to fall over the town line and losing all of her memories. She saw this man use magic and freaked out, not knowing who Rumple was. She was taken to the hospital and her wound was healed but not her heart or mind. Nothing, not even the cup, could bring back those memories. With Rumple in New York, she was left to Regina's whims again and was given false memories.
Belle becomes Lacey, a more dark counterpart of Belle and goes off to be the girl she never would be while still being Belle. Once Rumple return he couldn't change her back at first and Belle was attracted to both the darkness in the man and his magic. She did not mind his dark and evil ways. Regardless, with the town in danger, Rumple was given something to fix Belle's memories and he gave her the drink in the cup that brought them together so many years ago. The shattered cup had been fixed, as had her memories. With an embrace only true love could give, she became Belle once more.
Rumple went off to save Henry in Neverland and Belle and Ariel the mermaid met and became friends. Belle helped get Pandora's box back to the group and when the adventure was over, a standoff ensued. Rumple killed his father Peter Pan but sacrificed himself in the process. A devastated Belle had little time to mourn before they were all sent back to the Enchanted Forest. During this time Neal and Belle find out that the Wicked Witch wants to control Rumple and there is certainly a way to resurrect her true love. While she is not sure it should be done, Neal does what he needs to do resurrect his father and in return, he loses his life for his father. With yet another spell broken, they are returned to Storybrooke and Belle and the others realize Rumple is still alive, despite him being in a state of craziness and despair in the Enchanted Forest. A fight for power happens between Regina and her sister and Regina wins, locking her sister away. Once all has settled the baby of Snow's is named in honor of Baelfire, Prince Neal, and Rumple proposes to Belle.
Belle happily accepts and they marry, he trusting her with his true dagger, but only for a short while. Still, they are married and currently happy, awaiting what the future will bring them.
