Maybe, but hear me out first and try to understand my position here.

She was there for a reason, and the reason is *not* that some monster tried to ruin everyone's lives.

"Excuse me Papa, but I'm talking. So anyway, what I'm trying to say in a manner of speaking sort of way, and in nobody's fault of their own...is that I want to go back to that place."

I have seen people do this in real life. To summarize: 'I'm going to open with a rambling prologue because I'm uncomfortable...and now you're all uncomfortable to.' And while I hate to hurry a master storyteller, Ms Megan, the Beast is dying beside the fountain and this *delay-in-rescue is driving me slightly crazy.

*Heh; Jesus did the same thing in John 11:6

The problem is that we're highly invested in a story that can't afford to skip steps just because we want to know how it all turns out. I'm pretty sure that if we were reading the whole story bound, beginning to end, this would be just natural pacing for Beauty's character arc while we paused on the Beast's drama as background suspense. So if I were sensible, I'd take Megan's advice from the start of this arc and stop reading till the story has time to continue a bit more and then come back and read a bunch together.

Sadly, I'm hooked on every panel, excruciatingly paced or not. It's the price for reading a work-in-progress, and it's worth it for being able to read it ASAP in my book.

I agree with Kirala.

Reading this act from beginning to end non stop has a way better pace. It only feels slow simply because we get two pages a week and also know that Beast's life is on the line.

Also reminder that I am pretty sure Beauty doesn't know that Beast is dying. If she did, Beauty would have booked it over there by now. She doesn't know that though and her main focus currently is to speak with her family before she heads out this time around rather than letting them eat her dust like last time.I agree with Kirala.

You said it Kirala, there are some webcomics I do set aside for a time, (Vattu, for example,) but not this one! (though it's not impossible that I change my mind)

Also, didn't The Beast say that Beauty had a week to choose? I haven't been able to keep track very well, but I don't think it's been a whole week yet. My pancreas is telling me 4-5 days.

"No, Virtue, just because I was away for months in a castle that seemed to be working on its own dimensional passing of time and was always a wonderful season of pleasant summer, with the ballrooms playing its own music, doesn't mean I'm confused~"

I think thats safe to say Papa 8B

I am really curious with how Beauty is going to go about actually convincing her family that she has to leave once again.

Hope Dad won't try to lock her away.
