Other Things.... For use as a scrying surface for prophetic purpose or perhaps as a replacement for the mirror... Curiouser and curiouser!

A reflective interlude,
Where other thoughts may intrude...

[Miss Beauty,
Some things are
Missing you.]

Wow, she really is stunning with her hair up.

Also, I have to admit, if I were Beauty and I found out a magic fountain in the castle occasionally showed other things, I would be camped out next to it with a lawn chair and book until I caught it in action and figured out what its deal was...

It can show other things...

...Like the trees Beauty failed to comment on! :P

Perhaps this is the "magic mirror"? Or it shows your heart's desires?

Or true reflections?

Maybe if we're lucky, with the fountain, we might be able to see the Beast's human form!!!

Also, because I have no idea how to comment back on tumblr...

Your essay on Beast as male Donkeyskin was amazing. Again, this has been my favorite story since I was little and I'm always trying to dig even deeper into it, and I'd never thought of that aspect of it at all. So thank you a million times for posting, it gave me a whole new way to think about it!

Aw, thank you! Mind you, I'm not saying this interpretation is applied to OUR Beast...but then, I wont say it's not, either.Just to keep things mysterious. :D

For anyone who doesn't tumble with us already, the article Stitchlingbelle mentions is here:

Hm- perhaps the future, or like harry potter and mirror of requirement it shows what you want most 8I .... and what nice reflections they cast, you definitely have a great hand on your characters and drawing them from all sorts of positions :D

Personally, I think he's probably seeing himself as he once was - as a reminder of what he's lost, perhaps, or of how the contract has bound him. Perhaps it shows the past, or the future, or things that are far away (like the enchanted mirror did?), or what people desire, or what they truly are. Someday, I'm sure, we'll find out more about it. As it is, Beauty sees what she expects to see: their reflections and nothing more.

He probably hoped that it would reveal something since the castle brought them to the fountain again. Perhaps as they become closer, Beauty will be able to see past it.

Beast just breaks my heart.

I'm still thinking about all I said before. *le sigh*

The art is gorgeous as usual. :)
