So here we begin our regular update schedule! For now, I think it will be once weekly, on Friday nights. that schedule may change as I settle in, or if feedback from you, O Best Beloved, dictates a different approach.. I'd like to make multi-page updates, but I'm not sure how to best set navigation for that... Advice, anyone?

Last week, when the comic launched, there were nearly 700 unique views. I was completely blown away. A lot of that traffic is due to the magic of tumblr, and generous promotion by such wonderful folks as Heidi, from Sur La Lune, and Sarah from FairyTale mood , and of course, all of you who stopped by and read chapter one. Thank you, so, so much. I hope at least a few of you come back for more!

Please let me know what you think and what you want to see... Knowing I'm not just throwing these out into a void gives me some real motivation to work hard!

For what it's worth, I like the touch with the herbs, and I am wondering what you are going to do with that. (No need to tell me. It just may help you if I narrate what I'm wondering about.)

Wonderful! Can't wait for the next chapter!

Seems like you have a wonderful schedule set up! So I wouldn't worry about more than a page per Friday just yet!

Pray for me, Sensibility
Early blooming

This is so much fun:
Enchantment (with the scarlet and white variations standing for sensitivity and honesty)
Usefulness, Submission
Concealed love, Hope

I particularly like the note of hope....

You two are making me so happy!

Based on what cattservant and Kim M have found this time, we can probably assume this chapter will include a submission to the contract, some magic, and a little bit of hope. That hope is probably not for Beauty in this case, but eh, the Beast needs some too. Poor guy has been alone (or close to alone) for awhile now.

Your beautiful pictures are the background on my phone and your site is my homepage. I'm in love with the comic and really have to re-read it a few more times.

As for what I want..I want the lovely artist to be proud of her work and happy. I don't want you to be exhausted from trying to get updates out and I want to be able to enjoy this glorious story for as long as possible.

I'm tired so that's all I've got right now.

And because of my tiredness I totally didn't even notice that my phone took me to an older comic. Faaaaantastic. Sorry! My bad!

Oh my gracious, I feel so fancy! *fans self, blushes*

I'm really to keep following. You've done a great job of adding suspense to an otherwise well-known fairy tale. The herb/flower symbolism is beautiful and unique. Keep up the great work!

Hi. First, i really love your work. You are an amazing artist. Beauty and the beast was always my favourite disney princess, despite the fact that a lot of people are seeing it as stocolm sindrome. Anyway, i like your version of the story much better and this flower pages, all over the comic are just the most beautiful part of all. Some people are associating them with hidden meanings. Can you help me find that information about those plant meanings? Is there any source i can search to find that? Thank you very much and keep writting and drawing. Best wishes for you and family
MsMegan 6th Aug 11:27 AM, 2017
Aw, thanks Joana!

In the print editions of the comic, there is a flower index. You can also find the info in a number of books and websites! I try to cross-reference quite a bit, so I don't use any single source, but here's a good place to start:
