Preorders for Volume Three are up!! The print edition will, as always, feature updated and edited artwork as well as a variety of liner notes and bonus material. It's projected to be available mid-May, but you can preorder (and help fund those print costs!) now and be assured of having first dibs when it comes out!

I'd like to thank each and everyone of you for joining me these last seven years on this long and winding journey. Your encouragement and comments were a pleasure (mostly...), and I've learned a lot from all of you. If you'd like to follow me beyond Beauty and The Beast, you can find me on Patreon or twitter, on my website or by subscribing to the mailing list. I hope to keep creating stories that will speak to you just as much as BATB did for many years.

Thank you for everything, Be good to each other.

EDIT: issues with the store have been resolved! Have at it!

Aw, it's sad to see it go. But thank you so much, Ms Megan. This was wonderful.

I love that the last panel isn't focused on them, it helps it feel like this webcomic has just been a part of these two people's lives, and that they'll continue on even without an audience.

Thank you so much for a wonderful story, and I can't wait to get my physical copy of Act 3!

To me it feels like the end of a good film, where the camera pans out to focus on the sky just before the credits start rolling.

Thanks for sharing this lovely piece of art with us, Ms Megan!

That's it, that's my fave Beauty and the Beast adaptation. I've suspected it to be so for years, but didn't like to pass judgment till I saw how it ended. Thank you so much, Ms. Megan!

Awww, a lovely low-key private moment between them. A great place to leave their story to flourish on its own. Many thanks for your telling it, and looking forward to what comes next.

Welp time to binge read the whole story beginning to perfect end!

This is definitely at the top of my list of batb retellings. I'll go sign myself up for the pre-order.

A fitting farewell to these two amazing characters and this series.
While some questions have been left unanswered, I'm sure that there'll be some sort of explanation in the physical copies or answers to asks on tumblr. Whatever the case, it's been a blast.
Thank you, Ms.Megan
Thank you for a wonderful series and for filling my life with something to look forward to every Tuesday and Friday.

Oh god. This is really it. This is the last page I will ever review for this comic. It's the end of an era, Megan, and I blame you for the tears--but they're happy ones, rest assured.

It's so good to see Beauty and Argus at peace like this. Argus' kiss to Beauty's fingers. His willingness to go through it all again, because it would mean sharing a life with her in the end. Them sitting together in the snow under the aurora, as if her mom is still watching over them. And Beauty still calls him Beast in private moments! I couldn't have imagined a more heartwarming final page. <3 As others have said, the choice to pan upwards in the last panel feels both cinematic and like it's reassuring us that their lives will continue on happily from here. I'm so happy for them and proud of them!

I'm also so proud and happy for you, Megan! You've accomplished so much in the last seven years, both in your life and with this story. It's been an amazing journey (albeit one in which I popped up every once in a while to leave comments like a frantic, spring daisy) and I'm grateful to have had the opportunity to join you on it. As I've said, I'm excited to see what you have in store for us next. You've made a masterpiece here, and I can't imagine your next works will be any less impressive and touching!

As for the preorder, I've already purchased the third book and will grab the omnibus if/when it comes out as well. Scribble me a Smol Rose Child as my illustration, if you would be so kind! ;)

Again, thank you so much for sharing your adaptation of "Beauty and the Beast" with us, Megan. It has been a magical seven years. Here's so another seven more (and then some)!

Sincerely,
Abby

Was almost surprised we didn't see the mother featured in the epilogue or that I dunno she'd be welcoming new guests to the castle.

And drat was hoping we'd get to see some babies before this ended. But still sweet ending

Is no one going to mention the pun that Beast just blatantly threw out there?

Well I guess these tears are ones of happiness. This whole story has been a blessing. The plot is truly beautiful. ❤️

Heartbeat. I see what you did there, Argus.
Thank you for an incredible experience these past six years that I've been following. This really is one of my most favorite retellings of this story ever. Can't wait to have the whole story in my hands.
Dawn 10th Feb 10:33 PM, 2019 edit delete reply
Lovely ending. And thank you so much for the delicate views on how Beauty handles Argus's depression earlier in the epilogue. It's really helped shape my interactions with some of the people I'm close with who have depression. You can't fix it for them, but you can be there waiting for them if and when they're ready to reach back out to you. :') Beautiful story that will definitely stick with me. Thank you for all your hard work, and for this beautiful story!!

Mission accomplished, captain! :D I swear, if this somehow ever became an animated work, it'd become an instant classic version.
Congratulations and thank you for the journey, Ms. Megan.

How do I find the words I want to convey all I think and feel? This story you have created is truly a work of art which caresses the soul. We will carrry it with us in our hearts.

It’s been said before but I’ll say it again: Thank you! [stands to join others in continuous applause]

I'm a little late getting to this, only because I'm bad at keeping track of things, but I'm kind of glad I waited a bit, because a few weeks ago I would have been a crying mess having to say goodbye to them. I'm really gonna miss this comic. Thank you so much.

I just checked the website on the off chance the epilogue has been posted and it had! What an absolutely beautiful, tear-jerking ending to a wonderful story! Thank you so much for sharing this with all of us!
