The Doodler
His little happy dance!

This is beautiful. If only his mom could see him now.
Guest 29th Jan 11:23 AM, 2019
Why would he want her to see him? After all the hell Lady put him through from breaking his nose as a child just because he let loose his pets birds to free them from her wrath to making him try and kill his baby half brother as a way of securing his "throne", I would rather see her buried 10 feet under in a nameless grave, hopefully damned to all the crimes she committed. She never deserved Argus and I say she doesn't even deserve any future grandbabies. As far as I can tell the only thing I want is confirmation that she's dead and she got caught, which I'm not doubting if she ended up doing it herself after Argus vanished and she did it very sloppily or failed to do so.

I meant for her to see what she never had faith in. What no one had faith in. He made something of himself while his mother wound up truly alone, his ex doomed herself to only being of use for sex until she gets too old, and his father's hedonism has probably already caught up to him.

Oh, I see. Sorry about that. (*ยด-`)

It's cool.

I agree Argus's mother should have seen this. In the spirit of "Forgive your enemies...nothing annoys them more", if nothing else ;)

I'm not crying you're crying

If Temperance is openly crying, I think we can admit to shedding tears ourselves.

I love this page in so many ways and for many reasons, but I really like the small detail of Virtue's husband holding their baby. Good daddy!

Ooh, well spotted! I missed that the first time round :)

I've been meaning to make this comment on the earlier pages of this epilogue, but I also appreciate the care you've taken to show how time has passed since they left the castle. There was a question at the end of the finale of if their relationship would work out in the long run, and while we all knew it would, it is reassuring to see that Beauty and Argus took the time to see if their relationship would turn out to be as healthy and fulfilling as they were hoping it would be. Again, this is much better than the fantasy trope of the lovers marrying shortly after meeting.

As for the page itself--aww, Temperance is crying with happiness for them! I hope she and her girlfriend celebrate the occasion with lots of wine and cuddling later. Virtue's glee and the silhouette of Claude and their son is also adorable!

"But it's the nature of living things to change. Like climbing roses intertwining, better able to reach for the sun." Okay, yeah, you win at writing the best BATB version, hands down. I'm both in awe of that line and a little bit jealous of you pulling it off! ;) Never doubt that you're an amazing storyteller, Megan. As I said earlier, I'm really excited to see what you have in mind for future projects!
