Hey, you know what sounds great in a script like six years before you have to actually draw it? A bajillion roses.

In other words she's offered to take Beast's place. Time for the goodbyes//waves to Beauty's mother//

I love SwanMom's smile in the last panel. She is so happy, and so beautiful.

It is sad to see her "go", but it is the best kind of goodbye: a goodbye with love given, gratitude expressed, and a hope for a new beginning.

This is so beautiful I absolutely love it. The roses looks so good as well

Back once again! So Beauty's mom cannot return with her, partially because she sacrificed her mortal form for Beauty's life, and also because she intends to take the Beast's place as the arbitrator of the castle (random editing note: check the spelling of "arbitrator" for the print). This is for the best, given that Elise seems to be more savvy on how to work with the castle on its contracts and isn't as emotionally vulnerable to its manipulations as the Beast was.

Beyond that, I love how Elise asks Beauty to give her love to their family--because while Beauty is getting her closure about her mom here, her sisters and father still need it. I also adore the message of people being able to make each other's wishes come true (in this case, a mortal making an immortal's wishes come true) without a magical contract. That's so sweet and welcome after seeing the damage that these contract can do, even if they were made with good intentions.
