Don't give up yet Beauty. Not when you've come so close.

That's quite a shocking revelation to come to. ;v;

Go save the one you love from this castle, Beauty!

Don't give up Beauty. You're almost there to find him and the truth about his background.

I like the tiny detail of miniacle castle whisperings. The Rose Daughter version of Beauty and the Beast there is also a hostile atmosphere but it was usually described as a low hum.
Mood affecting sounds are significant in their own right but malicious whisperings are more immediately effective.

Plus hateful phycology is a recurring theme around here.

Come on Beauty get your head in the game where's your poor Beast if he's not in the castle and the walls are closing in ..."figuratively" .... so far anyway....

Between this page and the last one I feel like you've really done a nice job illustrating the whispers and the feeling they bring with them. It's got to be hard to draw sounds and abstract feelings - you did a good job.

come on, Beauty... you're stronger than this thing...

I so want her to pull a "Shut Up, Hannibal" and tell that evil castle exactly what she thinks of it and what it can do with itself

As much fun this comic is, I'm starting to feel like it's dragging on like a few of the late chapters in Battle Royale...

I mean the story is currently building up to those final moments where we get to tie all loose ends and such. It wouldn't be good to have Beauty run in to the castle and two pages later, find Beast, kiss him, and live happily ever after. In regards to this story, it would be too easy and rushed.

Seriously, if you are bothered by this story dragging then take a break away from it for a month and then read those extra pages you missed. Part of the reason you may consider it dragging is because we get two pages a week.

A portion of the pages feel like they are 'nothing but' Beauty running. To explain what I mean by the dragging on aspect like Battle Royale...

During the big, final battle between the last surviving members of that game, there was at least 1 chapter (approx. 20-25 pages) that was nothing but A standing there, holding a gun and pointing it at B, while reminiscing about all the classmates that have died and what has happened.
For an entire chapter and a few pages in the next one. Nothing happened, technically, if you took those pages out and nothing would be lost.

We are still getting stuff out of these pages though (ex: how Beauty is realizing how dangerous this place may actually be and how something is definitely wrong with the Beast since he isn't there) so if they were taken out stuff would be missing? We need to see how different and dangerous this place is now that Beauty isn't protected by Beast.

And it's been only six pages since Beauty got to the castle so no where near as many as the 20-25 pages of Battle Royale you are referring to.

I love how thoughtful this Bueaty is. The pace gives you time to really think about what is happening.

Go get him, girl!

Yep, telling the castle to shut up. Though she's not as defiant as I was expecting--more startled by the realization that this is what the Beast hears all of the time. That the castle is keeping him compliant and trapped by whispering dark thoughts and memories to him. As a metaphor for his depression, it works well. "Not yet...but" what, though, Beauty?
