Belle is a fictional main character who appears in Walt Disney Pictures' thirtieth animated feature film Beauty and the Beast. She subsequently appears in the film's two direct-to-video midquels Beauty and the Beast: The Enchanted Christmas and Belle's Magical World, direct-to-video spin-off Belle's Tales of Friendship, and television series Sing Me a Story with Belle. From 1991 to 2011, Belle was voiced by American actress and singer Paige O'Hara, who auditioned for the role after she read about it in The New York Times. Since 2011, Belle has been voiced by American actress Julie Nathanson. Created by screenwriter Linda Woolverton and animated by James Baxter and Mark Henn, Belle is the daughter of an infamous inventor named Maurice, with whom she lives in a small town in France. Though perceived by her fellow villagers as "the most beautiful girl in town," Belle is considered strange and an outcast because of her love of reading and non-conformity. Romantically pursued by a handsome but arrogant hunter named Gaston, in whom she shows no romantic interest because of his conceitedness and sexist mentality, Belle dreams of leaving her provincial village life in favor of adventure. When her father is taken prisoner by the Beast, Belle sacrifices her own freedom, taking his place in order to save his life and eventually learning to accept him for who he is despite his appearance. Intelligent, strong-willed, outspoken and brave, Belle is a young woman who refuses to succumb to her village's outdated view on the role of women in society.
Laide is a small village in the northwest of the Highlands of Scotland. It is situated on the southern shore of Gruinard Bay, about 30 km west of Ullapool. The once closed village hotel called 'Ocean View', which was run on a self-catering basis for large parties for approximately 10 years has now reopened; a church; a shop, a post office, a campsite and a petrol station; and various Bed and Breakfast accommodation. Whilst the local hotel was closed there was not much in the way of nightlife or entertainment to be had in Laide and often the younger population would venture out to Aultbea Hotel pub located three miles West. Sand Passage, just outside of Laide is the location of the once well established 'Ocean View Hotel', a firm favourite with the locals and tourists alike. Customers used to spend hours playing on the only pool table in the area or playing the classic game of 'Space Invaders'. The hotel is once again becoming established as a family friendly place to be, offering pool, darts, pinball and table tennis, also in the summer a bouncy castle for the kids and during the winter months film nights. In the summer the village comes to life as tourists flock to the area.
The Belle Époque or La Belle Époque was a period in French and Belgian history that is conventionally dated as starting in 1871 and ending when World War I began in 1914. Occurring during the era of the Third French Republic, it was a period characterized by optimism, peace at home and in Europe, new technology and scientific discoveries. The peace and prosperity in Paris allowed the arts to flourish, and many masterpieces of literature, music, theater, and visual art gained recognition. The Belle Époque was named, in retrospect, when it began to be considered a "golden age" in contrast to the horrors of World War I. In the newly rich United States, emerging from the Panic of 1873, the comparable epoch was dubbed the Gilded Age. In the United Kingdom, the Belle Époque overlapped with the late Victorian era and the Edwardian era. In Germany, the Belle Époque coincided with the reign of Kaiser Wilhelm II and in Russia with the reigns of Alexander III and Nicholas II.
Gaston is the main villain in the Disney animated movie "Beauty and the Beast". He is a sexist, chauvinistic hunter who wants to marry Belle just so he can brag about it and to give him sons that he can mold at his will. He looks down on her intelligence and culture, believing that a woman's place should be in the kitchen, cooking and cleaning for her husband, not be able to read books and learn about the world. It's for that reason that Belle hates Gaston with a passion, she sees him as nothing more than a rude, selfish, chauvinist, barbarian-brained lunkhead and sexist man who is unworthy of her time. When Belle falls in love with the Beast, Gaston gets insanely jealous. He rallies the town into a mob, saying that the Beast is an evil monster (when, in truth, he is a caring and compassionate being), and together they storm the Beast's castle. Beast's servants fight off the mob, while Gaston goes to confront Beast at the balcony. After a fight, Beast refuses to kill Gaston, not willing to sink to his level. However, Gaston charges the Beast in a blind rage, accidentally falling from the balcony towards his potential death in doing so. He appears as a guest in "House of Mouse", when he's always saying "No one (verb)s like Gaston!". He is one of the Disney villains featured in "House of Villains".
Jean-Claude is a fictional character in the Anita Blake: Vampire Hunter series of novels by Laurell K. Hamilton. Within the novels, Jean-Claude's role is as one of the primary love interests of the series heroine, Anita Blake. Jean-Claude is a French-born vampire who is over 400–600 years old.

Jean-Claude became the Master Vampire of St. Louis after Anita Blake killed Nikolaos. Together with Richard Zeeman, Jean-Claude is a member of Anita's first triumvirate.

The Yamakasi (Lingala: ya makási) are the original group of parkour practitioners from Lisses, France. The nine founding members were David Belle, Sébastien Foucan, Châu Belle Dinh, Williams Belle, Yann Hnautra, Laurent Piemontesi, Guylain N'Guba Boyeke, Malik Diouf, and Charles Perriére. Their philosophy was that parkour builds an individual who is physically, mentally, and ethically strong. The name has been used in popular references to parkour, including in French films about admirable lawbreakers who do their physically demanding deeds for charitable ends. Members of the original group have continued to appear in video reports on their history and the practice.

Achnasheen (Gaelic Achadh na Sìne) is a small village in Ross-shire in the Highland council area of Scotland. The village is situated on the River Bran at the junction of two roads built by Thomas Telford.Despite the size of the village, Achnasheen is also the name of a postal district which covers several much larger communities including Kinlochewe, Poolewe and Laide. This dates from the time when the village railway station, built in 1870, was an important stop on the Kyle of Lochalsh Line, serving a large area of Wester Ross. The railway still operates but all freight and mail, and most passengers, now travel by road. In 1893, a scheme was considered to build a railway from Achnasheen to Aultbea, but it was soon dropped. Facilities in the village are limited. The Ledgowan Lodge Hotel is a mile west of the village, but the Achnasheen Hotel (by the railway station) burnt down in the early 1990s and has never been rebuilt. A fantastical version of Achnasheen set in an alternate universe is referred to in the Gloryhammer song "The Land Of Unicorns".
