"Snuggling Up to the Fireplace" (bbfirepl.gif, 790x591x2, 19188 bytes) is the Tenth in a continuing series of fine Disney fanart drawings by Bob Ito <ito@[...]>.
One of the most romantic scenes in the Disney movie BEAUTY AND THE BEAST is the fireplace scene, where Belle and Beast enjoy a moment reading together by the warmth of the hearth after playing in the snow. It is here, where the song "Something There" concludes, that the two begin to acknowledge the love blossoming between them. This image celebrates these growing bonds and depicts a hypothetical scene after the end of the song, in which the two get more comfortable as they read. Belle is snuggling up to the warmth of Beast's side, while he looks on fondly upon her. You can almost hear his thoughts of love going through his mind....
In short, a very charming and romantic scene. And NO, there's nothing kinky--they didn't get *that* comfortable. :-)
