Thank you so much, everyone! Today Beauty and The Beast made it to #2 on the "Popular Now" page! I have no idea what is required to be "popular now", but I'm so grateful! Thank you all for reading and rating (except whoever gave me a four on that last I'm going to find) and especially for commenting. Hearing from you makes this so rewarding and exciting. a victory lap, how about some requests for pinup art, or some questions you'd like answered?

Your work is amazing, so beautiful. Keep it up.
MsMegan 11th Jan 12:30 AM, 2013
I sure will! Thank you so much!

Ah, some clarity
The Beast requires attention

MsMegan 11th Jan 9:49 AM, 2013
it's a nervous sweatdrop rather than an anime one... Oh, I'm living a lie!
cattservant 11th Jan 9:52 AM, 2013
It looks moistly sincere to me!
MsMegan 11th Jan 10:09 AM, 2013

Ah! I love how he asked her to look at him. Loved it. We haven't seen a close up of his eyes in a while and I hope that's happening next. Congrats on being popular! :) I want this book when's all said and done.
MsMegan 11th Jan 10:12 AM, 2013
I'd love to collect it all up when it's finished (and redraw 90% of it...). I just have to build up the readership enough to make the costs worthwhile!

The contract thing would have been confirmed when she agreed to take her father's debt and entered the Beast's territory. Meaning there are probably a ton of terms and conditions to this contract that the Beast is refraining from telling Beauty because he doesn't want to overwhelm/frighten her. I predict not telling her everything up front will backfire spectacularly on him in the future. But if he told her everything now, then there would be no fun for us readers, who want to slowly puzzle everything out. Also, I daresay the Beast values some secrecy. The trailer shows he's a pretty tortured soul. Remind me to message you with some of my interpretations of the prologue sometime.

Like the others, I predict there will be a close-up of the Beast's eyes/face on the next page. Also, I would buy the book. Random other notes: the word contract now automatically makes me flashback to "Make a contract with me and become a magical girl!" If you don't know what anime that refers to, you must remedy that. Immediately. XD

Beyond that, by requests for pin-up art, do you mean we can request anything from you? Also, as far questions go, here is mine: is the Beast related by blood to the sick girl (Beauty?) in the prologue? Were those Beauty's sisters looking in on the little girl? Because an answer to those questions would confirm my interpretation of that prologue one way or the other. XD
MsMegan 12th Jan 1:02 AM, 2013
Loving these comments! In answer to your questions --Yep, I'm taking suggestions for a pinup! No, she's not a blood relative of The Beast. Yes, those are Temperance and Virtue.

((Also, that was madoka magica, yes? Only saw a fragment at a con, and mostly made snarky After Effects jokes with my animation buddies through it...but I have been told it is required viewing.))
AbigailBrooks 12th Jan 1:19 AM, 2013
Oh, okay, then my very first interpretation of that prologue was arguably much darker than what you were going for. This version will probably be more intriguing, though.

Yes, I was referring to "Puella Magi Madoka Magica." It definitely requires viewing (sadly, you've probably been spoiled to it by now, but it's still wonderful and worth watching). It's best to watch it in Japanese with English subs, or so I've heard. art. Gosh, what could I request that we might not see later on in the story? Best go with what I'd like to see since I can't predict that. (Grins.) Okay, here are a few potential ideas for you. Hopefully one will prove interesting to you (smiles). I'm a sucker for cats, so perhaps show Beauty and the Beast reacting to a stray kitten? Or they could be sitting peacefully in a garden - that could have a nice background to it. Or perhaps some scenes which refer back to your character notes, such as Beauty's night owl habits or lovely singing voice, or the fact that the Beast can only see in certain colors (perhaps he tries to paint?) or is vaguely related to an Irish setter. Random note: I actually associated the Beast's...muzzle, shall we say?...with that of a bear upon first viewing.

Edit: Oh! Or the fact that the Beast is trying to adjust his sleep schedule to match Beauty's. Because I can imagine him being very grumbly about it but also trying oh so hard, and that gives me warm and fuzzy feelings.

Love how this is turning out!

Cats and Flowers!

Wonderful, this really does deserve to be popular, it really is an 'enchanting' story teehhee
lol... bad pun -_-
MsMegan 11th Feb 11:43 AM, 2013
D'awww! You're making me blush!
AbigailBrooks 28th Jul 10:44 PM, 2013
Have I mentioned that I love his hands? Because I really, really do. And ahhh, this contract. I'm really interested in learning more about it, namely who designed it, what it aims to bring about, and how it will be resolved. I'm sure we'll get more information on it as the story goes on, though.
sheshallnotbenameless 25th Aug 12:19 AM, 2013
I love how irritated she seems the first time she looks at him. And the second time she seems not just afraid, but uncertain as to what will happen.
