Argus you poor baby8(. I hate seeing that he went through so much pain and that there was no one in his earlier life that seemed to care.

I remember reading Act Two, Chapter One, pages 31 and 32 for the first time.

I remember being astonished that someone else had read the Beast and his emotions the way I had, for years. I remember thinking about myself and all the friends I had who had thought about it, or come within inches, even one text or phone conversation away from losing them. I thought about one of my best friends who did lose someone to this illness.

Okay, so maybe I was a very little bit disappointed that someone else had gotten to a Beast battling suicide before I wrote it. But... thanks, Megan, for writing these emotions, and capturing that feeling--and that feeling of fear even as you're on that edge. I never got that far, but it's been one of my deepest nightmares for years. So thanks, so much, for writing this in a way that made me feel not only *not* insulted, but empathy more or less to the point of tears, repeatedly, since reading those pages. Knowing what's been coming for so long is a constant feeling of dread and compassion and understanding I really appreciate.

And I appreciate so much that I know some of his pain, at least, will ease. So... thanks.

Sorry if that went on too long. I've been waiting for these pages for a long time, and they feel more or less the way I thought they would.

oh, /kid/.

the way the shadows bend into his bloodstains, the kind of horrific way it trickles down his arm -- it's gloriously unsettling, is what it is.

and his actual speech bubbles looking like the blood as well -- just. awesome job, MsMegan.

Yeah... We understand well, Argus.. It's the endless pain we fear and want to go away, and death FEELS like the answer until we're on our knees at its door. Suicide is never the true answer, and it makes me wonder in sadness what could have been for so many who felt it was the only way. Those of us who have even considered the idea of taking our own lives (myself included long, long ago) can understand this well, even if not to the same degree as others.

Even just to see someone suffering so deeply in their heart as Argus did, it hurts my own. Yet, with what we have seen as a result of this choice, without what is needed most, the pain finds a way to continue in a seemingly endless cycle.

You have a deep understanding of the nature of the human heart, Megan. You depict it with sheer, raw emotion, and I admire that very much. Continue forth with your vision. It's wonderful to behold, truly.

Wow... For two years now, I assumed Argus's "Event" was just him killing himself in front of the fountain so these past few pages have consisted of me just nodding with a solemn expression.

This caught me off guard though. Like wow I can't even imagine the fear Argus is going through right now. ... Just damn (really tragic moment but damn good story telling)

Well, that's usually how it is. You wanna kill yourself, but as you are on your last seconds of life, you desperately want to cling to it.
