Haha someone's getting huffy in turn. I like the transitions on this.

no, she is steaming. I can see it coming from her ears.

While I appreciate that you're not trembling in your slippers, Beauty, I do have to say that defensive anger might not be the most mature reaction you could have had... I'll be interested to see how they react to each other next time they meet!

I think she's not completely reacting to his attitude but also using it as a reason to expel some pent up anger she might have been holding onto at the situation she's in as a whole. Like, projecting, or whatever.

Love the different angle perspectives in this one!

Dear Authartistor,
If only Beauty
Had even half the perspectives
That you do!

Since everyone else commented on Beauty's slight displacement of her anger (i.e. sljfsdj's projecting comment) and the lovely transitions (i.e. Izsjdflsjd), I'll comment on how Beauty is so worked up because of the Beast and how that actually shows their bond. We haven rarely seen her this angry, even when she was bullied as a child. That was righteous indignation. This certainly has certain aspects of that, but she's very passionate here, to the point of foolishness even. Certainly, it has at least partly to do with her venting some of the pent-up emotions from her captivity, but I like to think that the Beast has gotten under her skin so much because they've gotten much closer in the time we haven't seen between the last chapter and this one. She's suddenly running to dinner. She dresses up for it. She reacts so strongly to something that wasn't even something one would perhaps imagine her getting angry *about*. She was rather cheerful prior to her "foot-in-mouth" moment. I think she's not just projecting, but she's also feeling guilty for her misspoken words and fighting against that guilt. I like to think that she might also feel betrayed. Here is the Beast, perhaps the closest thing she's had to a friend outside of her family--monster who forced her into imprisonment or not--and he lashes out at her when all she wants is to understand, for once, what is happening. Plus, she obviously cares enough about him to question his appearance and wish to solve it. If I were her, I'd be reeling from his words: "What, does he only want me for a bedmate? Why would he bring that up? He already has me here. I thought he cared about me. How could he act as if *I'm* the one who's done wrong here?"

I've no idea if this comment makes any sense at all. Off to bed. Huzzah, new chapter to greet me in the morning!

...she huffed. :D I love how the page's action flows from one panel to the next. And the sense of movement carried through in the flutter of the book's pages and the skirt of her dress.

Well, as I need to kill time during work, it is time to begin another reviewing spree! Or try to. Consider this a late Christmas gift. As the others said, it's promising that Beauty is terrified after the Beast's outburst, but defensive anger isn't really the right response, either. You don't know the Beast's history, so it could be that you triggered some very unpleasant memories and thoughts for him. Though you tried to be nice, an apology may be in order....

hahahah, possibly my favorite panel!
I loved you did her, specially how she falls into bed annoyed with Beast.
