Drawings of Beauties and Beasts - Tales as Old as Time
A common trope in fiction involves the contrast of a beautiful young woman paired with something outside of the realms of humanity. It might be a story of unexpected lovers with different life expectancies or a tale of a supernatural creature taking a young girl under its wing.
One such example is the unlikely blossoming love between Chise Hatori and Elias Ainsworth (from The Ancient Magus’ Bride).
As you peruse the illustrations below, do you find yourself wishing the characters a happily-ever-after?
