She's Not Dead, often SND for short, is a term in Beauty and the Beast fandom for fanfic ignoring or retconning the third season and Catherine's death, so that Classic (i.e. Vincent/Catherine) fic can be set during third season or in the future (e.g. to allow Vincent and Catherine to have children).
Some tropes used to ignore Catherine's death:
- Catherine in the Witness Protection Program
- Catherine as a ghost
- Catherine has amnesia
- Catherine inhabits Diana's body
- Catherine as a vampire
- the whole third season is a bad dream
"Alternative Third Season" is similar to SND. But while an SND has Catherine appearing to die, an Alternate Third Season story skips the fake death entirely.
- All Things are Possible... With Love (1990) was an early SND novel
