Veronica’s Commentary

Panel two has SHADING. Epic. Although David being really short on panel one isn’t. DRINK MORE MILK, MAN.

Goodness, is this mushy.

Q.Q

This happened to me…I saw the film “Zach and Miri’ make a porno” with my “girl bestie”, a week after she made me shake on it that I would always be her best friend…

It’s better this way… >.>

WARNING SPOILER ALERT

I’m still so, sooo confused….. so does he love her or not? and what about Sandy? I’d say I need closure about all this, but then I’d miss the angst and no doubt the whole thing would just finish. SO we need to keep this going on forever. We shall all band together and make a Life-lengthening machine to keep Taeshi alive forever, then pay her a constant stream of money to keep doing this forever and ever and ever. Also we’d be alive forever as well.

DAMN IT LUCY. CAN’T YOU TAKE A HINT?

I have to admit, this comic is a guilty pleasure.

I love it, but my analytical, scrutinizing side is screaming at the blatant manipulation of common emotions in order to evoke sympathy, and hook us with pathos. The stereotypes and predictability, how perfectly it fits into the mold of ‘fluffy drama’.

But then again, who gives a f*ck if it’s not unique or groundbreaking, I love it to hell.

As a side note, too many Language Comp classes and too few cheap fluff novels lead to an under-appreciation and cynicism towards anything not labeled ‘fine art’. So, in the spirit of appreciation…

FLUFF!
Because sometimes all you need to be happy is a cheap, badly written, cathartic novel and a blanket!
Gawd, the last shreds of my masculinity just died right there. Not like I had any delusions of being a manly man…

tl;dr
love this comic to hell

Reading through the comic yet again…

This chapter is one of my favorites from the early comics. So much is set up; so much foreshadowing. New readers - pay attention to this one…

Lucy, I thought you LIKED Mike! And not just in the later comics. NOW! Now was probably your only chance and YOU ruined it. It’s kind of ( okay ENTIRELLY ) your fault there won’t be a wedding picture of you and Mike in your room and next thing you know Paulo’s taken by Tess or Jasmine or Daisy or something and you find yourself sleeping with CARTER every night.

Lucy we know you like Mike, Mike like you, SPOILER,for now, you don’t have many more chances to get together and you screw up in every single one. That’s why Mike is not your boyfriend and why he is dating Sandy. You missed your chances but I think you may have some more in the upcoming chapters.
