Diana Bennett is a Beauty and the Beast character who appears in the third season of the show after Catherine Chandler's death.

She is a character of intense fannish opinion. See Beauty and the Beast: The Classic vs. Season 3 Fandom Split.

When she is portrayed in fanworks at all, she is either a focus of discord, or is referred to what fans came to call Diana Appears as a Friend, the latter to let fans know that Vincent Wells, the beast, has no romantic or sexual interest in her.

There are roughly 600 titles of (the numbers of volumes is many, many more) of Beauty and the Beast zines. Diana as a romantic or sexual partner appears in just a handful.

Some Fiction

One controversial story is "Night Moves" by Beth Blighton in Castles in the Air #2 (1991)

Another one is Unfinished Symphony in A Secret Place #6 (1990).
