Oh dear.

Now he's just showing off,
Trying to get the initiative back.

[Not really,
he's probably falling back on honesty in desperation!]

Well that excilated quickly.....

And they wouldn't clash if they didn't care...

a Drop of Beauty
Well, not entirely sure what he was hoping to accomplish here but I'm pretty sure it just fell to pieces.

What are you angry at Beast? Her? Or yourself?
Tuima 14th Jan 1:17 AM, 2014
Probably not the best tactic there, Beast.

If you didn't convince her last time with the disembowelled deer I doubt you'll meet with any more success now. Excellent character portrayal here; very interesting.

...I read that in Riker's voice.

"Promise or no promise, I can't stay here another minute!"

While it may look like a bad tactic, I get the impression he feels like it's the only one he has. If he's going to go through with this, he can't do it on the pretense that he's something that he is not; she needs to come to terms with the fact that he is a beast and then move past it rather than blinding herself to it in an attempt at kindness.
Kim M 14th Jan 4:59 PM, 2014
I agree. But I do wonder how he'll determine that she's truly accepted his beast-nature. After all, she might be treating him kindly because she just doesn't understand...or because she *does* understand and has moved past it.

And that makes me curious as to whether he planned this little demonstration ahead of time. Was that part of why he so dreaded entering the room? That he knew he'd have to reinforce his beastly self?

I think you hit the nail.
Lavadiamond 14th Jan 4:00 PM, 2014
Uh-oh! Not good!

Full points for the demonstration on How NOT to Make It with the Ladies....
RosesnWter 14th Jan 10:01 PM, 2014
All the frustration and doubt and sadness put into both sides of the conversation, props to beauty for keeping her cool longer than beast did ^^'
Hallan 15th Jan 8:30 AM, 2014
Have I mentioned lately that I love your artwork? :)
AbigailBrooks 18th Jan 5:23 PM, 2014
Uh...Beauty, he is a Beast, as he says. I almost think he does have to scream and snarl at this point to try to get it through her head, if her near-death encounter with his beastly side wasn't enough to make it sink in. That being said, shouting usually isn't the wisest of reactions, Beast, and you're likely to scare her some more by acting this way. We'll see how she handles it....

On another note, as I mentioned elsewhere, I know I'm supposed to be scared by his snarling face, but with that expression, I can help but imagine a fox's cry coming out of his mouth and laughing. I'm a bad, mood-ruining person, I am, XD.
TolkienOverTwilight 20th Jan 7:45 PM, 2014
This feels to me like he's trying to be harsh on purpose... Like he's screaming at her to understand what he is. I see that underneath, but still... he's frightening on this page.
nathyfaith 17th Feb 10:23 AM, 2016
come on, Beast. She is just worried. No need to be rude. She got the point already.
Anor-Roc Wildheart 31st Dec 6:42 PM, 2016
When he said he prefers truth to kindness, I nodded my head in agreement... but I didn't think he'd take it quite that far.
Guest 19th Oct 10:10 AM, 2020
Oh ho ho... dis iz bad

I love the art though! This inspired me to write my own story of sorts! (It'll never be anywhere as good as this, but you can't blame me for trying!) maybe check me out on Deviantart,... just to see how bad meh stuff is compared to this!

Oops. OldFashionedBoots is my name

Ooh! I remember the first interaction and his expression was truly terrifying, but this version feels “more in character model?” Either way I just noticed and rereading the series, and loving your work ^^
