Beauty & the Beast: Some Gave All,
Mr. Thornton chuckled. “Californians. Now, please tell us everything you know. We’re especially interested in hearing how Vincent Keller devised the plan to eliminate Experiment Z two-three-seven. Or as they so quaintly called it, ‘the fear beast.’”
Sky Wilson took a seat at the beautiful conference table. “Of course, sir. I’ll tell you everything I know.”
Mr. Thornton beamed. “Wonderful. And in return, Mr. Wilson, I will show you… wonders.”

In Greenwich Village, in each other’s arms, two lovers dreamed of rings and rainbows, and loved ones long departed; and the words of their vow sealed their soul together:
We are better together than we are apart. And we always will be.
That vow would see them through the dark times, if more came. If the entire world came at them, as long as they stood together, they could not lose.
We will always win. We have already won.
Cat woke from the unimaginable joy in her heart. Propped on his elbow, hair tousled from sleep, Vincent gazed down at her, his eyes glistening with unshed tears.
Another life that has just begun.
“I had the most amazing dream,” he told her.
And Catherine said, “Me too. I dream it every night.” She reached up to hold him. “And you’re always in it, Vincent.”
“You are it, Catherine,” he murmured. “You are the dream.”
When the sun rose, they were still dreaming.
