Don't worry, Deer, he's got other things on his mind at the moment.

Those birds... anything to do with those empty cages in the castle or just a clever coincidence/callback?!

Oh my gosh! I absolutely adore this comic! I found it about a year ago and immediately fell in love, but then when I tried searching for it again, I couldn't find it. You can imagine my surprise when it popped up in my search bar this morning! I've spent the last hour binge reading this before I have to go to work and I just have to say: your line work is gorgeous! Beauty has a very sophisticated look, though she is still young innocent all the same. And Beast! Oh my, you have made him so elegant and poised and oh so very human underneath that beasty exterior of his. I have to say his facial expressions are my favorite. You can clearly see how human he is trying to be while being so completely inhuman.
As a fan of classical fairy tales and retellings of the sort, I have to say this is probably my favorite BATB retelling g I have yet to read. The story and dialogue are both so gripping and interesting, I am ANXIOUS for a new update! Count me in the "avid fan readers club" :)
To sum up, this is an amazing comic, you are an amazing artist and author, and MsMegan...keep up the great work!

Oh god, the power of this page is hitting me so hard. I'm in the middle of work right now - selling tickets, so they're fine with me reviewing your comic between orders - and I just kind of have that urge to just sit back and cry. This is just...this page is just so gorgeous and the dialogue hits so hard...I don't know if I'll ever be able to write this well. I want to, but I don't know if I could ever top this story of yours, Megan. I feel like I should just go in and burn all of my manuscripts because they'll never be as awesome as this.

As for the page itself...(shivers)..."You understand, of course, that you've driven me to this"...OH MY GOD, LADY, STOP! No one is forcing you to punish Argus by killing all of his birds! Nothing he could have ever done warrants you doing this! You're just doing it because you like to inflict pain on someone and have no self control and he can't fight you when you do it. The best he can do is make sure you can't hurt those under his protection...and even then, there is only so much he can do (I have to wonder if he fears that Beauty will eventually share Aornis's fate, try as he might to keep her safe).

I know that recipe. Allow him to have something own until he Fails with something fe in School and then take it away from him. Either run something down that he likes, killing his birds or dog, it is all the same. No difference for her.
It is for his own good (and hers of course) so he can grab some Position later.
