Gripping the tablecloth nervously, trying to change the subject. Me. Thinks that Beauty is getting a little too curious for his liking...

Trying to change the subject rather obviously and blatantly, too. :P

And there is the emptiness
And there is the unobserved
And there is the unexplained
Also the unentertained!

That food looks delicious!
Also, it's curious that the Beast doesn't have a plate. Does he not eat? If that's so does he not have to, or does he choose not to? Or maybe he just doesn't want to eat in front of Beauty. Silverware might be difficult to work with his... setup.

Ooh! Pick me! I think it was mentioned, on the blog or back in the comments somewhere, that most human food makes the Beast sick. So he eats in private (I guess because what he *can* eat looks, well, beastly.) and just sits there at dinner.

Oh, well done! 10 points for referencing the footnotes.

Ah, looking back I see that some other smart folks caught on to this in an earlier chapter.
Still though, we're seeing Beauty eat now. That's interesting. It might almost imply that she's more comfortable than she was before.

Good point.

This is the part of every retelling where I half expect the Beast to look at Beauty and be like, "It's magic, duh." =)

I love that comment stitchlingbelle!

I love how distinctive Beauty looks -- even in that second-to-last panel, she's recognizable.

That dinner looks wonderful, and I alwaays loved those types of clocks :D

Don't you know it's rude to cut off a lady, Beast?

...Beauty, are you seriously starting this conversation by discussing the weather? Ah well, at least we're referencing how this is the land of eternal summer/spring and not winter like the rest of Beauty's world. And yes, the palace does seem empty, but I doubt it is - something that the Beast doesn't necessarily want Beauty to be exploring further? He's getting a bit nervous at her questions/observations, it seems.

...And dinner. (Mayhap with tarragon?) I love that this conversation begins without any focus on the characters speaking. It's such a great transition from the narration of the last few pages. And Beast paws/claws/hands! ...Gripping rather anxiously there, it seems.
