I was worried this would be a terribly sad piece of music that make my sadness worse. Instead, it is an accurate representation of my response to this page.

That inevitably makes me think of this one:

(That should be "wither," not "whither." Homophones.)

Plot Twist: the Beast is actually a fainting goat.

How does one pronounce an Asterisk?
Kukki 10th May 12:42 PM, 2017
It does look a little funny, doesn't it? :)

In manga, they often have a mark similar to an asterisk (looks kind of like the Walmart logo, actually... and asterisk-esque starburst that doesn't meet in the middle) that usually means their head is spinning. Perhaps they gasped, or they just woke up, or they're fainting, or they're trying to clear their head when they're drunk. That sort of thing.

I think it looks strange here because of the font choice, but I get what Megan was trying for.

...I was actually making a joke. I know what the symbol is supposed to represent...

So I took this as he fainted b/c blood.. did I interpret that wrong? lol
Cat 10th May 7:13 AM, 2017
I think it's more that he realized he was bleeding, which he didn't notice earlier because he was too busy getting talked to/mind screwed, and when he noticed, he brain said, "Good! Now, collapse. No need to be tough, just let us do our job."

Reminds me of Disney's Beast passing out after the wolves attack, if I'm not mistaken. The way his eyes roll back like that.

also NO NO NO don't be dying please

...I'm aware of course that the Beast dies in every version of this tale but STILL
Sybilla J 9th May 1:54 PM, 2017
**I should say USUALLY dies/is close to dying. So maybe not in *every* version.

Don't mind me, I'll just be over here whimpering in the corner.

Behind him in the second panel. "White rose petals stained red".

Something something blood making the waters profane... Seems Beast is remembering more now, as if his life is flashing before his eyes, and what he forgot is now returned.
AbigailBrooks 20th Aug 6:35 PM, 2017
Aaaaaaaaah! So yeah, he killed himself at the fountain, didn't he? That is definitely a man's arm. The roses being white in that memory isn't something I would have expected, but they do make a better contrast to the blood.

The Beast must have known he was bleeding before this, though? And it looks like he's finally fainted from blood loss, ugh! The asterisk is really unsettling, after so many pages without any symbols like it.
