Hey ok so usually I’m not one to theorize, but this piqued my interest.
So, we have Maggie, Tuls, and the Rose—Maggie, who is really lovely, Tuls, who is seemingly a gentle giant, and a flower that is somehow connected to romance (or the potential thereof). This flower happens to be a rose, and it seems like it isn’t too far a stretch to think this rose will be pretty important in Maggie’s storyline.
Ok, cool, what other story do we know that has a beauty, a beast, and a very important Rose serving as a plot point around which a romance centers?
Belle is initially stuck with Beast in order to save her father, Maggie is stuck with Tuls to fulfill a pact. However, I feel like the beauty and the beast roles are reversed with Maggie and Tuls, with Maggie being sort of selfish and abrasive, like early-movie Beast, whereas Tuls being “Belle,”is stuck in the castle that is, in this instance, Maggie’s mind. Like Belle hopes to save her father, Tuls hopes that he can return to his beloved Ranunculae (I suppose you could draw a comparison here between Ranunculae and Belle’s father, but idk) by adhering to Beast/Maggie’s whims.
It’s not like we haven’t already established that the way Maggie acts is kind of beastly sometimes, monstrous even:
I dunno, man.
Make of it what you will.
