Preorders for Volume Three are up!! The print edition will, as always, feature updated and edited artwork as well as a variety of liner notes and bonus material. It's projected to be available mid-May, but you can preorder (and help fund those print costs!) now and be assured of having first dibs when it comes out!

I'd like to thank each and everyone of you for joining me these last seven years on this long and winding journey. Your encouragement and comments were a pleasure (mostly...), and I've learned a lot from all of you. If you'd like to follow me beyond Beauty and The Beast, you can find me on Patreon or twitter, on my website or by subscribing to the mailing list. I hope to keep creating stories that will speak to you just as much as BATB did for many years.

Thank you for everything, Be good to each other.

EDIT: issues with the store have been resolved! Have at it!

Aw, it's sad to see it go. But thank you so much, Ms Megan. This was wonderful.

I love that the last panel isn't focused on them, it helps it feel like this webcomic has just been a part of these two people's lives, and that they'll continue on even without an audience.

Thank you so much for a wonderful story, and I can't wait to get my physical copy of Act 3!
Anonymous Puffin 8th Feb 9:42 AM, 2019
To me it feels like the end of a good film, where the camera pans out to focus on the sky just before the credits start rolling.

Thanks for sharing this lovely piece of art with us, Ms Megan!
Sophi(e)a 8th Feb 12:12 PM, 2019
That's exactly what it feels like!
ch1ck4do0dl3 8th Feb 12:09 AM, 2019
Thank you so much for sharing your unique and absolutely beautiful take on a story that is a favorite of so many. I enjoyed every page, and will absolutely be pre-ordering book 3!

this was an absolutely beautiful ending

thank you, msmegan. for the last seven years, and for everything.
MK_Wizard 8th Feb 7:43 AM, 2019
Well done. Two thumbs up.
Kirala 8th Feb 8:12 AM, 2019
That's it, that's my fave Beauty and the Beast adaptation. I've suspected it to be so for years, but didn't like to pass judgment till I saw how it ended. Thank you so much, Ms. Megan!

This has been an amazing journey and story to follow. Thank you for giving us such a unique retelling that has so much heart. I love your characters and will be sure to visit them again and again. Thank you and good luck on future endeavors- I’m excited for those as well!

Thank you, this has been lovely <3
wright1 8th Feb 12:43 PM, 2019
Awww, a lovely low-key private moment between them. A great place to leave their story to flourish on its own. Many thanks for your telling it, and looking forward to what comes next.
Guest 8th Feb 12:49 PM, 2019
This is a gorgeous ending. It was so simple and so beautiful.
Aki 8th Feb 1:17 PM, 2019
The only happy end I miss is for the third sister!

Congratulations! Excellent in every way :D
Miss Elcia 8th Feb 2:00 PM, 2019
Welp time to binge read the whole story beginning to perfect end!

This is definitely at the top of my list of batb retellings. I'll go sign myself up for the pre-order.
Sailor Phantom 8th Feb 3:13 PM, 2019
Oh my goodness I can't believe it is really done. This ending feels so satisfying too. :D What a great story... I think I'll read it again. :D
Kristen Seraph 8th Feb 9:20 PM, 2019
Thank You for sharing your story!
Kawaii overload!!! 8th Feb 10:44 PM, 2019
A fitting farewell to these two amazing characters and this series.
While some questions have been left unanswered, I'm sure that there'll be some sort of explanation in the physical copies or answers to asks on tumblr. Whatever the case, it's been a blast.
Thank you, Ms.Megan
Thank you for a wonderful series and for filling my life with something to look forward to every Tuesday and Friday.
AbigailBrooks 9th Feb 12:13 AM, 2019
Oh god. This is really it. This is the last page I will ever review for this comic. It's the end of an era, Megan, and I blame you for the tears--but they're happy ones, rest assured.

It's so good to see Beauty and Argus at peace like this. Argus' kiss to Beauty's fingers. His willingness to go through it all again, because it would mean sharing a life with her in the end. Them sitting together in the snow under the aurora, as if her mom is still watching over them. And Beauty still calls him Beast in private moments! I couldn't have imagined a more heartwarming final page. <3 As others have said, the choice to pan upwards in the last panel feels both cinematic and like it's reassuring us that their lives will continue on happily from here. I'm so happy for them and proud of them!

I'm also so proud and happy for you, Megan! You've accomplished so much in the last seven years, both in your life and with this story. It's been an amazing journey (albeit one in which I popped up every once in a while to leave comments like a frantic, spring daisy) and I'm grateful to have had the opportunity to join you on it. As I've said, I'm excited to see what you have in store for us next. You've made a masterpiece here, and I can't imagine your next works will be any less impressive and touching!

As for the preorder, I've already purchased the third book and will grab the omnibus if/when it comes out as well. Scribble me a Smol Rose Child as my illustration, if you would be so kind! ;)

Again, thank you so much for sharing your adaptation of "Beauty and the Beast" with us, Megan. It has been a magical seven years. Here's so another seven more (and then some)!

Anon 9th Feb 2:01 AM, 2019
Was almost surprised we didn't see the mother featured in the epilogue or that I dunno she'd be welcoming new guests to the castle.

And drat was hoping we'd get to see some babies before this ended. But still sweet ending
Vain.3805 9th Feb 2:16 AM, 2019
Is no one going to mention the pun that Beast just blatantly threw out there?
MsMegan 9th Feb 3:39 PM, 2019
wordplay is romance for these two ;)
Lostariel 5th Mar 11:44 AM, 2019
Then all is as it should be.
Stitchlingbelle 9th Feb 2:56 PM, 2019
Excuse me, I'm just crying. A lot.
Mojo1404 9th Feb 7:47 PM, 2019
Well I guess these tears are ones of happiness. This whole story has been a blessing. The plot is truly beautiful. ❤️
Allison 10th Feb 11:44 AM, 2019
Heartbeat. I see what you did there, Argus.
Thank you for an incredible experience these past six years that I've been following. This really is one of my most favorite retellings of this story ever. Can't wait to have the whole story in my hands.
Dawn 10th Feb 9:33 PM, 2019
Lovely ending. And thank you so much for the delicate views on how Beauty handles Argus's depression earlier in the epilogue. It's really helped shape my interactions with some of the people I'm close with who have depression. You can't fix it for them, but you can be there waiting for them if and when they're ready to reach back out to you. :') Beautiful story that will definitely stick with me. Thank you for all your hard work, and for this beautiful story!!
Pat R 12th Feb 11:35 AM, 2019
*standing applause for hours*
Mission accomplished, captain! :D I swear, if this somehow ever became an animated work, it'd become an instant classic version.
Congratulations and thank you for the journey, Ms. Megan.
Narnia4Aslan 12th Feb 9:19 PM, 2019
How do I find the words I want to convey all I think and feel? This story you have created is truly a work of art which caresses the soul. We will carrry it with us in our hearts.

It’s been said before but I’ll say it again: Thank you! [stands to join others in continuous applause]
Felina 15th Feb 10:11 AM, 2019
Just in time for Valentine's Day. A perfect, sweet send-off to our beloved protagonists. Thank you again for this amazing story!

I can't stand it, it's too awesome X)
Lostariel 5th Mar 11:46 AM, 2019
I'm a little late getting to this, only because I'm bad at keeping track of things, but I'm kind of glad I waited a bit, because a few weeks ago I would have been a crying mess having to say goodbye to them. I'm really gonna miss this comic. Thank you so much.
Silvre 16th Mar 11:04 PM, 2019
I just checked the website on the off chance the epilogue has been posted and it had! What an absolutely beautiful, tear-jerking ending to a wonderful story! Thank you so much for sharing this with all of us!

Lauracat22 9th Aug 1:42 AM, 2019
I really enjoyed and loves this story and wanted to know if you be making more hard copies of Beauty and the Beast? The first book is all out :'( Will the August special come back ? And does the epilogue get a hard form too?.....Either way I love this story and art.
bingebuddy 13th Apr 10:32 AM, 2020
Truly beautiful in so many ways! From the art to the storytelling to the dialogue, every aspect had me bewitched and enthralled, excited yet anxious to know what happens next. I especially love the commentary to the characters in the author's notes!
VakamaPrime 13th Apr 11:46 PM, 2020

RavenQuiteCraven 6th May 4:54 PM, 2020
This was beautiful. I love how you retold this story. You improved and clarified the best aspects of it, streamlining the essential elements while cutting out the more troublesome parts.
There's really nothing else to say. Any further compliments or congratulations would be redundant. You have said everything that needed to be said in this story. It's complete. All I can say is thanks.
Thanks for putting the time and effort and love into making a beautiful story.
Morgan1404 6th May 5:10 PM, 2020
I have come back to this story so many times to reread it. I love the whole story but this particular retelling always pulls on my heartstrings. To think I first found this in 2017-2018 is crazy and to think that I’ll probably come back to read this again and again and still feel the same little butterflies of happiness in my heart from your story is just amazing. You deserve all the best Ms. Megan .
I come back to read through the many comments of people loving your work and it warms my heart (I wonder when I will see this comment again). Thank you once again, for your years of work and heart you put into this story. Argus and beauty are simply incredible 😭🥺
Guest 17th Jul 12:41 AM, 2020
This was an absolute delight. Thank you for a lovely retelling of this classic tale. Absolutely gorgeous and I read it all in mere hours. 💜
Guest 10th Nov 10:15 PM, 2020
Ohhh gosh this waa such a rollercoaster! You really done and made me ugly cry... How have I never seen this before?? There aren't a lot of words to describe how much I love this except my thanks. Thank you for putting so much hard work and talent and YEARS of your life into this! God this is really a masterpiece. Thank you for sharing ♡
Aurora (the guest) 27th Dec 4:17 AM, 2020
Welp just read that whole thing in one sitting- and have now the fact thats its 1 am has been brought to my attention.
Elis 7th Jan 4:40 AM, 2021
Me too, 4:30 for me and my head is spinning from what I just read <3
Runtytiger (guest) 15th Mar 10:01 PM, 2021
*chuckles* even after The “Beast” becomes human, Belle still calls him beast especially during one of his “wanderings” and “I need a little self care me time”
SniperCT 31st May 8:34 PM, 2021
Oh I'm so glad I found this. It was a beautiful story and I really like your take on ... everything about it. The whole contract thing was very clever and the depression parts really resonated. Thank you for bringing this beautiful take on this story into the world.
Ransom4 5th Nov 12:21 PM, 2021
For some reason, I thought about this comic today and wanted to say, thanks again, I greatly enjoyed it and I feel you stuck the landing with the ending here, which isn't always easy to do.
Lib 8th Jul 10:56 AM, 2022
This is so lovely, I just read the whole thing. Thank you for writing it!

Yay for Beauty and Argus!
