True As It Can Be 1. WL's Writing Experiments

There are currently no reviews.

A re-interpretation of a Classic Fairy Tale:

Brad Brooks has become isolated, self-destructive, and beastly to others around him. Beau Cocteau is a petite and kindhearted gay college student with no family and few friends. A chance encounter one night will begin a tale as old as time.

Yes, this story is inspired by Beauty and the Beast, aka La Belle et La Bête. I have seen the 1946 french film and the 1991 Disney animated classic film, along with having read the french novel in high school. I want to capture the essence of the story without the fantasy elements. I am not sure if readers will enjoy reading this story as much as I am writing it. I guess only time and reactions will tell, if my approach of writing as "True as it can be" will resonate with anyone.

I leave you with the classic disney theme song:
