Fic Title: Stars in the Night and Remember the Night

Rating/Warning(s): PG. Spoilers for all seasons.
Genre: Retelling, AU, romance.
WIP?: Complete.

Why This Must Be Read: Something that always, always bugs me about a good portion of the meta/discussion on Belle and Rumpelstiltskin from Once Upon a Time is that Belle knew who Rumpelstiltskin was. Canonically, Belle is a reader and researcher. Belle is Rumpelstiltskin's True Love. Which means that she, as a whole person, loves him... as a whole person. This story is an absolutely wonderful character study and 'what if' that takes Belle's choice and her acceptance of Rumpelstiltskin's darkness as gospel and runs with it. It's beautifully written and absolutely worth the read. ETA: The sequel is in the process of being posted and makes me twelve kinds of happy. I LOVE Fearful's take on Bae and the fallout of the different choices. LOVE IT.
