Yeah, that's not remarkable or unsettling in any way, Beast.

If SHE did damage to the cup would it stay? Because he said the damage HE does never stays. Is it different for her because she's not technically part of this spell?

He was,
And is,
A fierce
Beastie!

My metaphor senses are tingling in reference to that "fixing the vessel does nothing for the spilled tea." Sort of like, for every action there's an equal and opposite reaction. He can fix the action but not the reaction to it. Foreshadowing mixed in there perhaps?

"What I gave up.. what I gained..."

More of the mysterious bargain! And why did he make one, heartless?

So if the damage he does never stays done, does that mean the deer he killed repairs itself and returns to frolic around the forest? Is he just killing and eating the same deer over and over and over again?

And I love the Beast's words here. Not just what the words reveal, but the words, themselves: evocative and yet so understated.

I was afraid he'd cut himself there.

Then we'd be back in "Beauty" territory!

Ooooooh, very interesting. The damage the Beast does doesn't stay done - so what does that extend to? To dishes and furniture? To the animals he hunts and kills? What about the person/animal he killed at the fountain? Was that undone? I doubt it, since it kicked the plot off, but who knows!

"Fixing the vessel does nothing for spilled tea" - a metaphor? The effects remain? Well if the deer he hunts resurrects, it would be good if he at least was still sated from its meat.

And what did you give up Beast? Anything else besides your humanity? Was your beastly form and ability to use magic what you gained? In any case, it seems he was lost in his animal mind for years - maybe decades. Poor guy!
