Well, we're frozen in by an April ice storm, the baby and I are both sick, and my studio is flooded, damage yet to be assessed. Yaaaay~!


melissa 16th Apr 10:17 PM, 2018
Also where do you live that has an April ice storm?
T.K. Wilson 19th Apr 6:34 PM, 2018
Welcome to the Northlands... far east United States (New York and up) and Canada. We don't count on decent weather until at least May!
Guest 16th Apr 10:26 PM, 2018
Wow ice in April!! Where do you live? Our weather has been in the mid 80s lately
Fluffy 16th Apr 10:35 PM, 2018
Northern weather for the win!!! It's been snowy here in Illinois too
Surka 18th Apr 2:51 PM, 2018
Wisconsin's been a freaking disaster. There's still a foot or two of snow on the road edges due to the plows.

Back to those whispers. Oh be careful Beast.

Sorry to hear about the unfortunate events. Hope things get better.

Hoo boy, tempted by despair. Let's not fall for that a second time, mmkay?
Tursiops 17th Apr 12:17 AM, 2018
Ah hey aya ma ma ma
Life in a Northern town.

Everyone at work was apologizing to the new people, saying that spring does actually exist in the Midwest, you just have to believe in it.

Hope things stop being terrible for you soon.

Also: WOW, Castle, way to go for the really gross emotional low-blows. May this place become pasture for dysenteric cattle.
the selkie wife 17th Apr 2:28 AM, 2018
i'm sorry you're having a rough time of it just now, msmegan! hope it thaws up soon :)

meanwhile, poor beast: what is up with that dialogue? do i smell what is potentially our last ever flashback?
Kawaii overload!!! 17th Apr 3:51 AM, 2018
From what I'm think is about to happen, the castle is going to try and stir up his memories of his attempted suicide to remind Argus that he "belongs" it since he owes it his life and no one can change that.
Now of course that's bull since we know that Beauty will save them both somehow if Argus doesn't think of something first, but it still leaves a chill in the spine.
It also brings up the question of what will happen if Argus does change back and his contract is somehow ripped. Does that mean he'll regain the wound that should have killed him and he'll die once and die all?
Dear lord, I hope not.

not to be a furry, but those arms in panel three *swoons*
Hallan 17th Apr 8:42 AM, 2018
Does one have to be a furry to appreciate good arm development?
The Doodler 17th Apr 12:27 PM, 2018
The Doodler
I was actually thinking "arms" might be the key word here -- they look more like human arms and less like animal forelegs in this panel than before. Either it's just me, or maybe he's starting to transform.
Miss Elcia 17th Apr 1:33 PM, 2018
Agreed! I don't think it's just the lack of clothes (we've seen him disrobed before) and this particular position. He's suddenly looking decidedly more human shaped in that panel.

I know how you feel. I'm in Kentucky and we were just blasted with a minor blizzard. The bipolar weather is wreaking havoc on on the immune systems in our house, specifically my little girl. She's four and has been sick more times in the last couple months than she's ever been in her entire life. And while it hasn't flooded here yet, I wouldn't be surprised. Given the way the house is situated, our backyard is basically a perpetual swamp.

Anyway, kudos to you for sticking with this through all the nonsense! That's dedication.

So... more evil whispers. The Castle? I'm really beginning to think Argus' "mother" is somehow,at least, part of the Castle Entity. Who/what else has such an active hatred of the poor guy to bring up such a moment at a time like this?
The Young Entity 17th Apr 3:47 PM, 2018
I hope your little one will soon be healed!

And good luck with the crazy weather. My weather is chilly and rainy, trying to snow every now and then and very windy, but nothing like yours and Ms Megan's!
AshErika 19th Apr 9:45 AM, 2018
Thanks ? She's mostly okay now, just has a cough that refuses all efforts to make it go away. Her doctor doesn't know what to make of it.

Yeah... as the incredible Robin Williams once said, "It's Weather by Sybil!" Seriously, the day after that snowstorm? Blue sky and in the 80's. Same thing yesterday, and today's in the 30's and 40's and gray all over.
The Young Entity 23rd Apr 1:09 PM, 2018
I'm glad :-) I hope the cough will clear up soon!

Wow. Weather definitely makes our lives more interesting, doesn't it?
Guest 17th Apr 5:16 AM, 2018
If Beauty can hear it too, she needs to tell him to ignore it and focus on her.
britvulcan 17th Apr 2:24 PM, 2018
It looks to me like the castle is reviewing both of their contracts now that certain conditions have been met. Beauty's was (presumably) made for her by her mother, and Argus' contract was made at the well. Perhaps the castle wants to renegotiate?
The Young Entity 17th Apr 3:41 PM, 2018
I'm sorry you've been having such a rough time of it, Ms Megan! I hope you guys feel better soon and the weather becomes more favorable!

Is the Beast still bleeding from the spot where his heart should be? Whoa. And I wonder what he 'can't do' and what he 'doesn't care' about anymore. What's he giving up?
The Young Entity 17th Apr 3:43 PM, 2018
Wait, I'm confused. Is that even him talking or thinking? Maybe it's the whispers (or memories or something?). I am very confused now.
Vain.3805 19th Apr 3:04 AM, 2018
It's what he said before he lost his heart, whatever the current source may be.
The Young Entity 23rd Apr 1:10 PM, 2018
Ah, thank you.
Alexandrea Sward 17th Apr 8:57 PM, 2018
Kansas City had snow and ice recently. I love the imagery and what it forbodes.
Helena Stumpf Morelli 18th Apr 12:10 PM, 2018
Judging by the look in Beast's eyes, I don't think that the whispers will work, this time. He's got more to worry, now... like finding where Beauty is.
AbigailBrooks 25th Dec 5:19 PM, 2018
That looks stickier than blood, though I wouldn't be surprised if this is another reference to the stab wound in his chest. Now he's getting the creepy whispers again, so it looks like he's going to have to face his memories and/or the spirit of the castle one more time. The Beast needs a serious vacation after this, I swear.
