Maybe because they are the primary sub rosa motivators in this sad sweet song.

Nice change of topics there, ambassador. ;D

And not much luck with roses....? Sounding very Rose Daughter -esque.... Can't wait to see where this goes.

He cant lie to her but, he still seems to be hiding information from her. If he has not had much luck with roses, where did hers come from. I wonder if the castle is keeping secretes from its "ambassador".

Perhaps that particular rose was one the first he'd managed. Beauty called its value arbitrary, but people who put months of work into a single project, tend to place a good deal of value on a favorable result. Sure, you could make another, but you never get quite the same sense of accomplishment out of the second as you got from the first.

There was a young white rose very early on...

maybe that young white rose is beginning to blossom a little *cough*beauty*cough*

Starting to get the hard-hitting questions now, I see. Also, if the roses are so difficult, I can see why they'd be worth a price...

(Also remembering the bratty, demanding rose from Le Petit Prince...)

Just wanted to pop on and say that this technique of having their faces be always just off-panel is really quite wonderful, and very effective. Another great page!

I can't believe I missed this chapter, it's interesting that in not one of the images you can see the eyes, as if they are trying to hide what they are truly feeling from one another...

See? He's an ambassador. He can go between this magical realm and the humans who encounter the castle/its actual ruler. You know, avoiding the subject of her father will probably not help, Beast - but then again, there are specifics you probably cannot talk about. Trying to distract her with more flowers almost worked, but she wants to see the roses,'re not having much luck with. Okay, so where did that other rose come from? The more information we get, the more questions I have!

But his rose bloomed during the winter. How could it not be doing well in early spring? But then, he could mean an entirely different matter when he says he hasn't had luck, thus he didn't lie.

I just hit the VNV Nation and now I'm pretty much in love with your comic. I missed his voice and it's totally a romantic band (especially the song) in review to the comic, at least.
Thank you for making this comic and especially for the playlist! I would've never known about this comic ifI didn't see the playlist had a link on it!
MsMegan 12th Oct 8:15 PM, 2015
Oh wow, it's wild that you found your way here via the playlist! I want to update that and make a few others!, definitely!
Anor-Roc Wildheart 31st Dec 4:09 AM, 2016
The way you talk about that playlist makes me feel like I'm missing out on something that I really don't want to miss. Would you be kind enough to provide a link?

Not even an ambassador knows all the secrets of the 'land' he keeps. I wonder how lonely it must be for him, how long did it take for him to receive guests? Was it perhaps too long?Or maybe the castle takes guests but only a particular one would be able to lift the spell? What if the castle has given his ambassador previous chances on breaking the said 'spell' but the person who came wasn't worth it? Okay, I think I just gave myself a different plot, but still, I wonder....
