So if he had just been mean to a poor old beggar but hadn't been turned into a Beast, would everyone still have a problem? (He would still have a personal attitude problem of being repulsed--Mind--by her of course.)
BTW I see the Beast (and to an extent the servants) as OS Protagonists who are pursuing the Goal of Becoming. It concerns everyone else of course in one way or another, but they are the ones who have the most interest in achieving it.
It's actually interesting -- not sure if this was in the movies but in the play I watched she actually re-appears at the end (kind of in the background) to watch as Belle tells the Beast she loves him. So in that version at least, she's shown (to the audience) to still be interested. It felt like a nice full-circle resonance to me -- maybe that's why.
I see this as quite clearly cause/effect. In order to become human again (Becoming) everyone needs to conceive of the idea that someone could love a Beast (Requirement of Conceiving).
You could write a version of this story where the Goal is Conceiving -- Belle realizes she can love a Beast, and the Beast realizes he can be loved -- but then wouldn't that be the end of the story? Why have him transform into a man again at all? Of course if you did that, even if the Beast was okay with it, the servants/household knickknacks would still have the very serious problem of not becoming human again.
Oh, I just got an idea for a darker version! In order to get everyone to Conceive of the idea that that he can be loved (Goal) , first he has to Become human again (Requirement). You know, looks do matter...
I guess another option would be to have a Goal of Conceiving and give us the transformation as a Dividend. But in this case Dramatica puts Dividends in the Universe quad, so he would get a transformation a dividend of what... Future? Progress? I think that's a stretch. Also I have hard time seeing his transformation as just a Dividend.
I think anyway.
