  • me:

    what?

  • my sister:

    i just realized something

  • me:

    ?

  • my sister:

    gaston is a nice guy.

  • me:

    ...? um, no, sorry, he's an asshole.

  • my sister:

    no, no, no, gaston is a 'nice guy'. think about it. he spends the whole beginning of the movie trying to be friendly to belle. everyone else in that town thinks she's a bookish freak with a crazy man for a father, but gaston like, talks to her and sort of tries to take an interest in her activities and compliments her and stuff with the complete 100% expectation that she's going to pay him back by being in a relationship with him. he tunes out what she actually says because he doesn't really think of her as a person, just a pretty trophy who should react to him the right way if he does the right things.

  • me:

    huh

  • my sister:

    and then when she hooks up with someone else, he gets all angry and shouty and insists that this other guy is a monster and she's lost her damn mind because she was supposed to fall for HIM, not someone else, and then he goes and stirs up the townsfolk into an angry mob and turns the whole thing into a witch hunt over his wounded pride.

  • me:

    O_O

  • my sister:

    gaston is a nice guy.
