I love the Beast's expression in the last panel. :D

(I also love that -- even though the civilized vibe he has almost drowns it out -- he really is kinda ugly, almost like he was put together wrong, like the person who transformed him's first concern was "make him monstrous" and their second concern was "make a functioning anatomy that works practically." I realize that sounds like a backhanded compliment, but it's *not.* It's pretty cool and well thought through.)

He's trying so hard to come up with conversation, it breaks my heart. I'm not sure if it's because he's an introvert (like me) or because you're going with the fairy tale that says he's dull. Either way, the awkwardness of keeping up a conversation is very keenly felt here. He just looks so -hopeful- in that middle panel. Like, "Oh, we might have dialogue if I breach on this topic!"

That's a sweet bit. I like how it emphasizes that even though he loves her, or is on his way to it, he still doesn't know her all that well-- is she the sort of person who would be offended by that, or at least, driven to blushes she doesn't want? Is it too forward of him as a suitor? Adorable, watching all that flit over his face.

Awkward~! But then the Beast tries so hard to figure out something else they can talk about to break the tension. "Oh, why not that one author she was reading? We got along well discussing books before!" And Beauty just brightens up and snaps up the topic, and...oh my, you must be comfortable with the Beast, Beauty, to be referencing risque material. The Beast's reaction is rather charming; though again, it's coming off as a little paternal, WHICH IS WEIRD FOR ME, since I know this is a romance! It must be because he's so much older than her; that must be it! Anyway, to the next page!

I love your use of the silhouettes and how the distance between the two of them decreases from panel to panel as they (sorta) find a topic of conversation. And the Beast's expressions in good!
