"we've found that happy servants are less effective. We prefer to keep morale as low as supernaturally possible."

I love this dialogue(?), and can relate to it a lot more than is probably healthy.

Also, "blup blup" is Magic Fountain-speak for "Like I give any ****s, mammal".

That's just about the motto of this comic right now...

This is heartbreaking...still.
Ms Megan XD You're author's comment made my day. Poor guy, I think they better hire new statisticians if they think LOW moral helps work efficiency. ;)

I'll also add.... I stayed up until midnight just to read this update... Worth it. :D

So obviously the mother began the curse and is in charge of it. Was he not told about reversing the curse? Is this iteration of the tale without a "true love" remedy? Interesting, like to see where this could possibly be going.
Is the mother, then, going to try to steal Beauty away from him all the time so that he could remain as such forever?

Or could it be that true love is the remedy, but the Beast does not know it? Curiouser and Curiouser.

And now I'm stuck like this: O.O ..... until next Tuesday.

I'm going to worry over him all weekend.

Mom really hates her child that much. Poor Beast is never going to get a break, is he, Ms. Megan?
Cathy M 7th Aug 10:32 PM, 2015
Is this woman really his mother? I think she is the step mom,
I notice no father around ? What happened to him? Killed off?
What happened to uncle I believe who was looking out for him?
So many unanswered questions here. Please enlighten us.

At the risk of being spoliery, there's some versions of the story where she's a ... tutor/gaurdian? Rather than a straight-up parent.

Ahhhh...see, that's it right there. His stepmother decided to punish him because he found happiness with his birds and, for just a few moments, wasn't devoted to her. This ruler is precisely the same way - now that he's being distracted by Beauty, she wants to punish him for it to get his undivided attention and dedication again. That's just so gross....

There is still the possibility that beast is on his own guilt trip and bad mother is coming from his own Memory making up the contract/leash he is on.
I still feel there is something missing.
