Yes, but maybe you could temper your honesty with, like... context. That might reduce conclusion-jumping and general horror.

Oh, Beast, I know that keeping things to yourself and only saying enough to answer a question is a hard habit to break, but right now it would be a really good time to say as much as the curse will let you. Push yourself, Beast. I know it's hard, but it'll be worth it, I promise.

Dang it, Beauty, stop looking at your reflection. Im loving where this is going, but I have a horrible feeling about that constant switching between the Beast and the Reflection is going to give her a bad time.

Current mood: watching the shippers run aground on Body Horror Reef, then break up as Hurricane Angst plows through the fleet. (I mean, yes, it's canon, but if Beauty and Beast want that happy ending from MsMegan they'd better work.)

Also that is some exquisitely-portrayed anguish in Panel 2, Beauty, so pay attention to it and not the bloody reflections.

Beast is a beast.

I don't think she's looking at the reflections. I think she's looking at his hand/paw on her arm and wondering if she really wants it there.

That was my initial thought too!

Beast, I can tell you don't mean any harm, but maybe let go of her arm for just a sec, for the peace of mind of everyone concerned...? She's not had an easy day.

All I have is "ouch my heart".
Poor Belle is worried about him holding her in place. UGH, SAY SOMETHING USEFUL BEAST! :P

Beast, I demand you let go of Beauty and TALK. Properly. None of this 'miscommunication' stuff. Don't ruin the quality of this thing by pulling that stunt.

Me: "Yes, Beast. Clearly you should keep confusing this young woman with your half truths!
You may not be lying to her, but you're still not explaining the WHOLE DANG STORY!!!!"

Honestly, and this really is MY OPINION, but it really seems like to me that Beast is purposefully trying to be as mysterious to Beauty as possible, while also keeping his promise of being honest to her. He's telling her the truth, but he's not telling the WHOLE truth!
Well anyway, he really shouldn't be doing that.
At this point, he should be opening up to her. Bit by bit, of course, but still, it's be a lot more than just saying tiny pieces of your story that might get jumbled up and arranged to the point that "The End" is mistaken for "Once Upon a Time".
Not that "The End" has actually come yet, but you get the picture.

But what if what he's told her is really all he can remember, or if he does know more but he also knows that he'll be punished for getting any closer to telling her?
Mad Hatter 1st Mar 3:36 PM, 2016
OI! Beauty, Beast, calm down before someone gets hurt.
AbigailBrooks 6th Oct 10:05 PM, 2016
The Beast's summary of himself is poetic, but by not giving Beauty the entire story, he's both A.) Scaring the hell out of her, and B.) Not allowing her to decide what he is for herself. The first panel, with his flat eyes and expression, definitely doesn't help. I can see why Beauty is backing away from him.

But she Needs to see the whole beast, not the Picture in the water. The Picture is just the nice outside and not the whole Person.
He should tell more and not be so frightening. As much as is possible for him though.
Ah, it hurts.
