Oh Beast, after steeling yourself for this conversation so much, you're retreating after maybe a minute of conversation? (Sighs.) He does have a good point, though - this is what he is now. And maybe I'm looking too deeply into his words, but is he implying that he had no say in what happened to him, or perhaps that he has tried not to be beastly, but has failed time and again to the point where he has given up on trying to be otherwise? I can't be sure. In any case, I'm glad that Beauty asks him to wait. I'm looking forward to hearing what she's going to say next.

Beast is much better
than being alone.

Oh Beast, you are focusing too much on just one aspect of who you are. Yes, you're an animal, but you're more as well. See that too!

I like the fact that the "creak" is cut off. Gives us a clue that Beast is actually going to wait and hear what she has to say.

Shades of the George C Scott version...

Agh! Each page is like chewing tinfoil, because I know I have to wait for the next page and I wanna know now!

Congratulations. :) As one writer to another, you are fantastic.

And *I* maintain that it wasn't what you did, Beast, it was the way you handled it.

She probably expected snarling and roaring and eating of helpless deer when she first saw you. You were the one who went out of your way to lull her into a false sense of security.

I do want to hear what she says!

I've noticed something about Beast...
When Beauty is all "Well, some monsters aren't all bad" he's furious for two reasons.
One: He just is overwhelmed with how WRONG she is. Monsters are evil, period. She should waste her sympathy on someone else.

Two: Even if she truly believed that he had justification for himself and what he is, she would NEVER care for him... love him. Simply because of what he looks like and how he acts.

*whispers* if he couldn't keep a beautiful woman when he was handsome and whole, how will he win anyone's affections now?

Oooooh, I really like the last point you made. That didn't even occur to me. Nice~!

Wha...? No, Beast...get back in there. You don't get to just dump that fact on her and leave before she has a chance to respond. (You tell 'im, Beauty!)

The suspense is killing me!
