Looks like someone is dealing with captivity maturely.

Oh, and happy new year everyone!

Love love LOVE her expression at the end. So funny. Though her beginning comment made me sad. Probably what the Beast was thinking as well.

This is a little irrelevant to the story, but that is one sharp dress. Plus, it seems in-character.

Why, thank you! What makes it seem in-character?

It's fairly simple and practical. She does have to work at home, after all. So she'd likely chose something she'd be used to and feel comfortable in. Plus, she seems like a straightforward, no-frills kind of person, even though she seems to appreciate beauty. (Ha, stealth puns.)

This is all so lovely! The prologue is incredibly haunting and unique (I've never quite seen anything like it in a BATB retelling - I can't wait to learn more about it!), and the first few chapters are a nice set-up to the story.

It's interesting to see the gifts were asked for in jest (making the sisters much more sympathetic) and that one of the sisters is married and pregnant. Again, I've never seen that before in a BATB retelling. The castle is also rather amusing, responding to everything its residents want. Are there other people/servants there, I wonder, or is it just Beauty and the Beast? I guess we'll see.

All in all, excellent start! I'm looking forward to your next update.

Flowers/plants on the table? Hmmmm...? :D

Also, I find I'm rather curious about what they're eating. Maybe that's because I'm a little peckish myself at the moment, but I wonder how the Beast's fare compares to that which Beauty ate in her cottage. (Or during their more affluent days.)

I very much like this beauty, I had an idea similar to the way she would react for my own story, her facial expression is just hilarious and the beast's hesitance is understandable, I wouldn't be touching her with a ten foot poll if she had that face on

Oh look, I caught up to my original comments. I'm just going to keep on with my running commentary and ignore them, though. Not sure how much more I will do with this tonight - once my RP partner arrives, my evening will have been hijacked - but let's see how many more comments I can manage before then.

So...this one. Beauty, I think you are too practical to get the point of such grandeur. Sometimes it's merely to show off. Anyway, I think you would do well to drink a little wine during this dinner. I'm not sure you're going to like what you hear, after all.

I can't help but think how comical Beast must be here. I imagine him eyeing the nearest exit.
