I'm just so confused (in a good way) about the Beast's back story! He seemed to really love animals... and I don't believe a person who cares for creatures like that could be heartless.... We haven't really seen his treatment of other humans though. I'm just so curious!
I love love LOVE this comic!

::shakes head:: I definitely should've kept that tea for you, Beast.

But that line: "I never considered that a man with no heart is a beast." Oh, man. I feel for the Beast, and yet how many times have I wished that the heartless men or women I've known could learn just how much damage they cause? In any case, I can't wait to find out how, exactly, the Beast falls into the heartless category....

Minor lol: the word "scoot" is right above Beauty's wineglass, and it took me a minute to figure out that it was supposed to mean her chair scooting out, and not the glass trying to scoot away!

I, too, am very curious about the Beast's backstory. So far everything we've seen has been sad, but nothing's been his "fault"-- all I can imagine at this point is him lashing out in anger at something he loves. It's got to be one heck of a journey from his scene with the dog to being "heartless".

(Also, how anthropocentric that old view is. I'm not a big animal lover, but the idea of humans having more "heart" than animals has always seemed a little ironic to me... animals do noble, selfless, loving things all the time, domesticated and in the wild.)

So he's also angry and considers what he did to be "heartless" - condemning himself for whatever it was. He cup shatters in his trembling hands, which he didn't much seem to notice until Beauty got up and mentioned it. At least she's concerned about it!
