Wait, the first two panels, is that a random little boy or Proto-Beast?
Ali 15th Aug 2:24 PM, 2014
Looks like Proto-Beast. It's the same hair style and beard.

Avoiding you? The lady awaiting him ominously in his workshop? (Where he might, say, make sketches of flora and sign them "Argus" maybe?) Oh, surely not! Suuuuurely not.

Just de-lurking to say I've been following this comic avidly.

I'm interested to see where it goes. So far, I like it very much!
MsMegan 16th Aug 10:20 AM, 2014
Aw, thanks Siva!! I'm always happy when someone de-lurks, because I'm a total attention seeker. ^^;

I know that tone of voice. Hi, Mom.

(For some reason, ComicFury won't let me reset my password, or I'd be signed in properly to say this. Argh.)

Bwee~ Hallan! Though we'd lost you somewhere along the way!
Hallan 16th Aug 8:08 PM, 2014
My computer (with the ComicFury password saved in memory) had a stroke and died a couple weeks ago. I only managed to get a replacement two days ago, thanks to the ineptitude of the place I originally ordered from. (I finally got sick of them and just went to Best Buy.)

Regardless, it's good to be back!

I am really loving this flashback sequence. You have lovely art and layouts.

And oh dear, what changed from the last page? Hum hum hum!

In my headcanon, I'm imagining the Beast whistling "I Just Had Sex!" when he walks to his...apothecary? I'm not sure if that's the right word for it, since he seems to be studying plants there, rather than making medicine from them. I wonder if there's a garden near this room that he tends to. In any case, this is good foreshadowing to the Beast's love of gardening and his knowledge of flower meanings later. We also see what just might be the beginnings of the journal Beauty just received on that desk.

We also meet who I, personally, think is the woman who keeps being referenced in earlier flashbacks. She really seems more the type to try to control the Beast and hurt his dog than his lover is. She clearly knows him fairly well, too, knowing where he goes off to brood, and clearly has asked him to do things for her before. Also, yes, I bet the Beast was avoiding this woman. From how his expression darkens and how he clenches his hand into a fist, she obviously distresses him for some reason. My guess is that this is either his mother or, more likely considering the original version of "Beauty and Beast," the stepmother who tried and failed to seduce him and punished him for rejecting her. We'll see if I'm right later, though.
