He's too emotionally exhausted to argue that point any further, I hope.

It's never pathetic to want comfort never ever think that Beast. I'm betting because your mother never gave you any real comfort you think that but no. No only thing patriotic about wanting comfort is when you want and need it that you just hide it.

The rain is contagious it seems.

He keeps waiting for the hammer to come down on him, but there is no hammer. Beauty doesn't keep a spiteful reserve of emotional weaponry - only abusers do that.

Because lest we forget - Beauty's been starved for affection too since leaving her folks.
Paula Richey 29th Sep 7:41 AM, 2015
Yep - I imagine he'll kick himself for that, too.

Everything he's said is the echo of something he's been told - that he's a disgusting, unbearable, pathetic animal. Beauty knows that and it's breaking her heart. But Beast has never had someone cry for him, so he will probably think he's so depressing to be around that she cries whenever she sees him now.

didnt come to my mind either, that thought. I was as surprized as beast by the teardrops. Would confuse me as hell.

That Beauty Needs some affection and is looking Forward with me as beast would be far from me in that Situation.

Maybe i have some of beast in me, maybe i am just a man.

(i think this calls for a cathartic musical number.)

This comic is an emotional rollercoaster

Beast's shojou blush on the last panel is killing me. These last few pages have really been hitting me where it hurts but in the best way possible and I've been shoving them at my friends with various whale esque/clogged toilet sounds to show my appreciation.

Inspiring whale noises has been a lifelong dream!

God, this page hurts. Beauty's right, of course - it's only natural to crave human touch and human comfort - and she was raised with it, so to be confronted with someone who thinks he doesn't deserve it, or that to crave it is pathetic or wrong of him, due to his abusive wonder she's crying! The Beast might take that the wrong way, too, but I really hope not.

A perfect parallel! No release date in sight, but I can tell you a good friend of mine (my editor on BATB in fact) is developing a Phantom comic... ;)
