IF YOU THOUGHT THE FIRST PANEL BEFORE WAS **** WAIT UNTIL YOU SEE THIS ONE oh god someone gave me suggestions on page one of halloween how to be less **** at backgrounds and unfortunately this whole chapter was done in advance. One of my biggest weaknesses. I hope that by the end of BCB I would have conquered it.
Paaaulllooo, you big wuss.

Cyber sandwhich November 7, 2010, 11:09 PM EST.
Guess that’s the first time Yashy ever heard of Sandy, and I cast my vote that it’s Abbey.
BirdmanGA November 7, 2010, 11:10 PM EST.
Radical, Abby gets to be here for 2 pages.
He should be making out, though. With his clone. As Paulo should as well.
fff November 7, 2010, 11:10 PM EST.
Poor Yashy >

questionablekitty November 7, 2010, 11:11 PM EST.
It may just be me, probably is, but I don’t recall Mike mentioning Sandy at all while drugged up and yes it’s so totally Abbey. Who else would use such an impressive vocabulary word?!
Random dude November 7, 2010, 11:12 PM EST.
Yashy, you insensitive little bitch.
Donut November 7, 2010, 11:14 PM EST.
GAH! DAYLIGHT SAVINGS YOU HATH CURSED ME ON THIS FACT!

Lucy envies Sandy, the one Mike set his sights on. She tried to redeem herself in his eyes, but after years of neglect and use as a punching bag for her anger have set him on a track of believing she can never be anything but that. So he turned to Sandy, wanting to get into a relationship where he wasn’t the victim. In their time together, Lucy became bitter and sad, her emotions completely breaking down.
When Sandy had to leave, Mike drifted back to Lucy, feeling empty. Lucy, her emotional pallete all scrambled, fell back to the tactic she had used for so long: anger. Thus she hurt Mike more, both physically and mentally. Mike’s obvious response was to cling to the image of Sandy, which only made Lucy hit harder to get him to pay attention to her, a vicious cycle in the making.
Of course, they ARE teenagers, so their moods are all messed up - meaning that the cycle is equally trashed. Until the cloud of hormones and the ‘he likes _’ ‘he dosent like me’s leaves when they turn like 23, I’m betting they’re still going to be angsty and embarrased and stuff to each other. At 23 or so, they’ll probably just kinda implode the cycle and all just be friends.
Basically, the only thing I would blame for this whole angst-fest is the excessive amounts of hormones Taeshi drew into Lucy (and Mike). YAY HORMONES!
……………. I have no idea why I said this.
And there’s BittersweetCandyBowl in a nutshell! That’s all, folks!
Rift November 8, 2010, 12:02 AM EST.

Titanium Dragon November 8, 2010, 12:03 AM EST.
Also, Paulo’s totally gonna be sparkly for a week after this arc ends. Jasmine, you are the best secondary character ever.

No it’s not abbey “clam down, it’s only me” this is abberham
Cyber sandwhich November 8, 2010, 12:31 AM EST.
Abbey’s the only character I remember that has used ‘big words’, so it’s probably him.
ANinnyMouse November 8, 2010, 12:33 AM EST.
why is there no question mark behind “Who’s Sandy.”?

wonder what abbey’s costume is…it has a light on it…and a vest of sorts… hmmmm….
Sethorien November 8, 2010, 12:52 AM EST.
Paulo you puss- OH HAI I DIDN’T SEE YOU THAR
Eveco November 8, 2010, 12:54 AM EST.
Abbey to the rescue!
For those who doubt it’s him: think. Who else do you know that calls Paulo an imbecile?
N8 November 8, 2010, 1:02 AM EST.
Hehe Paulo’s Self-Ownage Lolz>:D
I think Abbey’s custom is a father custom while Daisy is a mother custom and of course Molly is dressed as thee “Reaper!” me like!!!
p.s. November 1st is done Taeshi which means one thing,the deal has been meant!

at first I thought it was Amaya in her work uniform, but she doesn’t talk, then I notice dem big ears so my guess is the same as the first post; Abbey, but what’s his costume I wonder… dressing up as a movie theatre usher?
ChewySmokey November 8, 2010, 1:18 AM EST.
Say, where is Tess?
Lake's friend November 8, 2010, 1:23 AM EST.
While I wouldn’t be disinclined to see Mike and Lucy at least reconcil I have reached the point where it is getting hard to fell bad for Lucy. Yeah, that mysterious figure is probably Abbey, haven’t seen much of him lately have we?
(nameless) November 8, 2010, 1:28 AM EST.
That’s gotta be Abbey for sure. Who else would be so polite to Paulo in that situation?
Also don’t worry tae, you will conquer the backgrounds before bcb ends.
Mike seems pretty deceased to me. But he can’t die…he is CAThulhu after all.
And that Yashi, she will figure out who that Sandy is sooner or later.
Frustrated Writer November 8, 2010, 1:35 AM EST.
I use to prefer Lucy x Mike but after that Sandy arc I must change my mind. I have a long distance relationship, we do meet irl every month or so for a week + He’s in sweden and im in UK. And I would be heartbroken if he ever dumped me for some other girl, especially if I had done nothing to of deserved it. I don’t see distance as a reason for dumping someone unless its going to be that way forever. Sandy seems very sweet and in love and Mike has no reason to go dumping her for other girls.
Kite November 8, 2010, 1:35 AM EST.
ITS OKAY, LUCY! I still love you!

I’d like ta sit Lucy down fer like five minutes an’ really have a good chat wid’er. Now granted I’ve been there myself, but dammit, I know she’s stronger’n that. I wish she’d act it cha.
Jessica U. Ingmann November 8, 2010, 2:01 AM EST.
oh hey look at that, it’s abbey!
Draixen November 8, 2010, 2:05 AM EST.
Somehow, the song “I Fight Authority” by John Mellencamp comes to mind at Paulo’s total apparent submission to the idea of a policeman. But seriously, Paulo, man up a bit. Jazzy’s watchin ferChrissakes.
Also, yikes, looks like Yashy is catching on to something here. Can’t keep your children in the dark forever Lucy. And trying to pu the fear of God in them only works when your anger is genuinely directed at them. She knows that you’d never hurt her or punish her without good reason.
Daeva November 8, 2010, 2:08 AM EST.
Purrsonally I like the LucyxPaulo coupling. o-o

Darkdrake November 8, 2010, 3:04 AM EST.
Abbey. Afterall, we haven’t seen him & Daisy yet! Is Daisy Daisy lol?
Also now Yashy is seriously getting clue after clue from this chapter as to the whole Mike Lucy situation, OH SH-
Blake November 8, 2010, 3:27 AM EST.
Abbey? I say YES
kirkiss November 8, 2010, 3:34 AM EST.
Mike+Lucy=FTW But… Mike+Sandy=Awesome as well.. It’s not fair v.v.. Hard choices are a bitch. Loving how this chapter is going, but stilll rediculously curious on the loose ends of the others and how the relationship goes forward..
MetalWingedWolf November 8, 2010, 3:37 AM EST.
MikexLucy is a win … Mike has to get his head out of the clouds and look at whats right in front of him. Jeez. Anyways, Abbey, watch yo language. Imbecile is an impolite word. i expected better of you. And Paulo’s not a wuss… the Edward costume is just getting to him…
a guy can only take so much glitter..
MissCaitlyn November 8, 2010, 3:43 AM EST.
Wooo! MikexSandy all the way!
Mike November 8, 2010, 3:47 AM EST.

Abbey and Daisy should be dressed as Luigi and Daisy xD
edit: and Molly can be a goomba or sumthin…
MissCaitlyn November 8, 2010, 7:28 AM EST.
i think the first panel got bi-polar. If you ignore the background and assume they’re walking on flat ground, it’s fine and it works. however, if you look at the sidewalk and lucy, you can notice that ALSO works - you drew her from a top-down angle, which is how we’re seeing the sidewalk. It’s kind of like an optical illusion, with two views at once. that doesn’t work when you look at the other characters, though, they look like they’re on a higher plane than lucy.
the way to fix that is to be definitive in the angle: do you want a top-down view, or a “paulo is in front, everything behind him diminishes’ view? In theory, both are very different, but it’s kind of psychological in that you have to believe they’re different and not let your finished product trick you into thinking its two perspectives at once. did that make sense?
I would recommend looking at mike - he’s parallel to the ground, right? so let him dictate the lines and angle of where the sidewalk would be. He’s angled back, the sidewalk’s sloping down. it’s a complex angle, but don’t give up.
damn November 8, 2010, 7:29 AM EST.

Grubey November 8, 2010, 8:03 AM EST.
Heh. Poor Lucy, that must have been incredibly embarrassing. I still can’t understand why they won’t let Yashy know about Sandy.
…Where has Abbey been all this time?
Jedi Master November 8, 2010, 8:15 AM EST.
^Because Yashy thinks Mike’s her dad. How’d you like it if you found out your dad was cheating on your mom?

POOR LUCY! GEEZ MIKE! STOP GOING ON ABOUT FREAKEN SANDY FOR CRYING OUT LOUD!
CIZ123 November 8, 2010, 11:40 AM EST.
Heh, I knew Yashy was going to say something about the Sandy comment… oh hey Abbey. It looks like he’s wearing a suit, so I say he’s a mobster (taking after his *** of a father in terms of clothing) with Daisy dressed as a pilot light.
Did… did Paulo drop Mike… and start crying? He needs to take off the custume before it binds to his genetic code! He’s turning into the real thing! RUN AWAY!

Still haven’t told Yashy about Sandy? Not cool… not cool…
Valumior November 8, 2010, 12:17 PM EST.
I feel sorry for mike because i had a sorta like same situation except for eating drugs and stuff
but it’s really hard for mike to keep focused on sandy even though he does love her he also knows he will still keep a place somewere for lucy
just the fact that she’d hit him so often doesn’t have to mean anything
I know because i have a girlfriend who does the same only instead of hitting me she claws my arm open xD
i got over 20 scars now thanks to her but evn though she does thet i still love her and mike should just the same with lucy
Mike + Lucy = <3
Unknown November 8, 2010, 12:24 PM EST.
oh and btw it’s abby probably with daisy
Unknown November 8, 2010, 12:27 PM EST.
Lucy sucks, I can’t understand why people ship her and Mike.
Tab November 8, 2010, 12:30 PM EST.
Poor Lucy. I can imagine what she’s going through. She’s lucky to have good friends to help her through this.
On an unrelated note, Paulo seems to have lost Jasmine. And we also see that he’s a wuss when it comes to the police-ok, after the way the “officer” speaks to Paulo, it’s obviously Abbey-but I think that someone’s scared of jail. A lot.
Shaun1e November 8, 2010, 12:49 PM EST.
me neither Tab, me neither….
Lyucs November 8, 2010, 1:27 PM EST.
Paulo’s face in the last panel O.o epic + cute .
Zero November 8, 2010, 2:02 PM EST.
a member of the community has kidnapped jasmine, if anyone has any information on the situation, please contact taeshi so we can raid the kidnappers house xD
Undeadboll November 8, 2010, 2:13 PM EST.
Seg November 8, 2010, 2:52 PM EST.
Wait… if Paulo’s begging for mercy from the “officer,” then that means that Mike is lying on the ground again. Oh well, back to square one.
LostInPhilly89 November 8, 2010, 3:03 PM EST.
Imbecile? Abbey. Definitely Abbey. And Daisy, then. This should be good.
Hoheh November 8, 2010, 3:16 PM EST.
Lucy used Scary Face
But it Failed
Anialator November 8, 2010, 3:29 PM EST.
Abbey is probably mad at Paulo and Jasmine for scaring the little kids.
Something which has always bothered me is Lucy hiding from Yashy the fact that Mike already has a girlfriend. The rationale given by Lucy is that Yashy is too young and naive to understand the truth. However, Yashy has said on more than one occasion that Lucy and Mike should have coitus, so how naive can she be? Yes, Yashy clearly has a lot invested in the Lucy/Mike pairing, but I think it’s time Lucy stopped hiding things and simply told Yashy the truth (which she would eventually have to do anyway). Of course Yashy will be angry about the whole thing at first, but I think in time she’ll come to accept reality. Who knows, Yashy might even develop a modicum of respect for Mike for staying true to Sandy and not fooling around with Lucy. I mean, what else is Yashy going to do? Fly to Rickter and kill Sandy?
wacko November 8, 2010, 3:56 PM EST.
its abbey i bet
hold up a sec… did taeshi say she will END bcb? oh hell no plez tell me i got that wrong

Princess Bride ftw
Aglette November 8, 2010, 4:35 PM EST.
Except for that it IS how Abbey talks but not really how he looks. At least, from what we can see.
entertained November 8, 2010, 4:40 PM EST.
Going by the old style or current?
Cause it looks like Abbey from behind, in a sweater vest and T-shirt to me.
Carcharcles November 8, 2010, 4:51 PM EST.
We KNOW It’s abbey (and presumably daisy).
The REAL question is, what is he dressed up as?
Dr. Klaus November 8, 2010, 4:57 PM EST.
I think that the unknown person is that thug with the scar on his eye
SDVII November 8, 2010, 5:02 PM EST.
ABBEY!! hahahah only one character in this whole comic would use the word imbecile to describe Paulo and his antics
Golden-Eyed Wolf November 8, 2010, 5:04 PM EST.

Let the darkness rain upon our souls,
Let the anger be fueled by the truth,
Let the light shine through the never ending darkness.

I be gettin tired of dis here Sandy business.
Seriously, though. We all know their relationship is doomed to fail.
Either that, or Sandy and Lucy become BFFs and poor Maishul is left with no one~
I hope that happens. >D

Lucy x Someone Better For Her!

I’m with ya on that one. >:D
SammyKi November 8, 2010, 7:55 PM EST.
I’m waiting for Lucy to do one of these:
1. Break out into tears.
2. Injure Maishul in rage.
3. Freak out and scream at Mike in a rant.
YinYangBell November 8, 2010, 8:09 PM EST.
All three of those things are probably going to happen.
Baeleox November 8, 2010, 8:25 PM EST.
On any other webcomic with two pages to spare I’d disagree, but seeing as it’s BCB… That pretty much makes it a guarantee. o_o
Derp herp rhyme

Is Abbey supposed to be Abraham Lincoln?
I’m still going strong on MikexSandy and PauloxJazzy

abbey: uhhhhhh hey paulo
s0me001 November 8, 2010, 10:55 PM EST.
To Taeshi: I like artists who feel self conscious about their work. Lets me know they’ll only get better and never get a big head.
That being said, IMHO The sidewalk/street thing here actually works. It gives the appearance of us looking down on the kids from an angle. Interestingly enough, the sidewalk does get smaller as it reaches the top. May be by accident, but I still honestly don’t see the screw up there.
Then again you could be referencing something else I’m not seeing, in which case the error is still obscure enough that i haven’t picked up on it (for what its worth though, cause I’m notorious at not noticing details).
Carcharcles November 8, 2010, 11:25 PM EST.
uh its definitely abbey being…a flashlighttt??
Aly November 9, 2010, 12:09 AM EST.
And Yashy is finally met to the name “Sandy”… THANK GOD!
Cats4ever98 November 9, 2010, 12:18 AM EST.
BUSTED LUCY!!! . I wonder who is that? *cough* Abby *cough* o3o :rolleyes:
Leonmaster November 9, 2010, 12:34 AM EST.
Well, obviously I can’t speak for Taeshi, but the perspective seems off to me. I’m pretty sure David is supposed to be really tall, and the angle of the sidewalk makes my head hurt.
Aidinthel November 9, 2010, 3:39 AM EST.
derp: Uhh, no? Many people are like “There is nothing wrong!” and there hasn’t been much criticism of it at all. I welcome it! Because it does look wonky!
I appreciate you defending me, but if people see something wrong and can help me with it, then power to them!!
Taeshi November 9, 2010, 5:52 AM EST.
I don’t know how some people can’t tell it’s Abbey, I mean you can easily tell by the fur color and ear, and for the record Abbey is going as a badass for Halloween, even though that’s what he is every day.
JuniorBoomer November 9, 2010, 6:19 AM EST.
You sound like you don’t like people saying its fine, Taeshi-san…
Well, to a completely artless person like me, your comics really are godlike.
And even people criticizing could be more gentle about it.
Lyucs November 9, 2010, 6:35 AM EST.
I LURVE HOW CHUBBY PAULO LOOKS IN THE LAST PANEL!!! I WANNA SQUISH HIS CHEEKS!!!
Aka Nishin November 9, 2010, 7:02 AM EST.
Lyucs: I wasn’t saying people aren’t allowed to compliment me, I just noticed if people come in to criticise a lot of the time I will see people trying to defend me like it’s a mean thing to do when I think criticisms are just as good as compliments. People can say what they want, I just hope people don’t start thinking “I better put this complainer in their place!”
You know what I mean? I am super writer :-[ fff
Taeshi November 9, 2010, 7:25 AM EST.
Paulo’s face in the last panel is PRICELESS!
Love the way you draw sad Lucy, it makes me want to give her a big hug
Wisp November 9, 2010, 7:50 AM EST.
I love this comic Taeshi it has a lot of emotion and a great story to it and the drawing style really helps it flow. :3 btw the backround is fine.
Echo November 9, 2010, 8:26 AM EST.
Those sparkles… O.O
Cam November 9, 2010, 10:15 AM EST.
I agree with Taeshi totally
I teach a lab section and I really appreciate it when people provide criticism because then I know what to fix for the following year so it’s not as crappy. As long as it is constructive and actually accomplishes something I don’t care how mean the comment is…if it’s a mean comment AND it’s pointless then I get ****** off
Iris November 9, 2010, 11:30 AM EST.
actually I think the first panel looks reasonable because Paulo is really tall anyway so Mike should be at an angle with respect to the ground…..wait hold on maybe David is taller ( Iguess I should look that up)
Iris November 9, 2010, 11:40 AM EST.
Lmao Paulo and his glitter…
Echo November 9, 2010, 11:40 AM EST.
this is also why i wear a ghille suit during halloween, no one can notice you if you sneak right, and you have your paintball gun covered too.
Snake November 9, 2010, 12:34 PM EST.
Wait wait, previous strip, was Mike talking to a hallucination-Sandy or was he calling Lucy Sandy?
Snerky November 9, 2010, 1:18 PM EST.
Imbecile? Definitively Abbey <3
Oddille November 9, 2010, 2:52 PM EST.
Just hold your breath Lucy,resist the urge to flip out.Think of Abbey making Eric out to look like a complete dork in the next strip.
Also,@Snerky,I think he was either acting out how he figured his eulogy would read when he did actually die (although it seemed a little….rehearsed).Or he was severely messed up and a split personality formed in his mind which he called Sandy….I don’t know,don’t quote me on it.
Phlea November 9, 2010, 3:15 PM EST.
Damn, if that is Abbey that he should have dressed as Abraham Lincoln!
The Tyas Master November 9, 2010, 3:39 PM EST.
Adds on FA, that was unexpected.
Genericposter2+5 November 9, 2010, 3:42 PM EST.
It’s Abbey dressed up as Abraham Lincoln.
Also, Yashi will find out and beat the snot out of mike. AYU BEAAAAM!!!!
On a side note:
Mike and Lucy are by far the best combination. They’re the main characters and have been so since the beginning of the story.
Also, in the chapter where you see Sandy going to work and stuff, and then talking to Mike over the phone, you see that she spends most of her time working, and dedicates just a while to talk to Mike, while Mike doesn’t even live without thinking of Sandy. Jeez, even while drugged, in the end, he could only think of Sandy. That’s certainly unfair.
Lucy: MIKE! I LOVE YOU!
Mike: I don’t. I’d rather love a girl who is on the other side of the planet, and whom I haven’t physically been with since early middle school!
I hope either Mike or Sandy understand that this is not going to work, and that Lucy’s love is finaly accepted.
LUCYxMIKE FOR EVER, GOD DAMNIT!!
Boom November 9, 2010, 4:00 PM EST.
Pretty sure the whole not telling Yashy thing is more to do with Lucy’s feelings than Yashy. Its like if Yashy finds out about Sandy, Lucy is admiting defeat. Even if Mike is just pretending to be nice for Yashy’s sake, Lucy still prefers that to being completley hated and ignored.
Or maybe i’m reading into it too much I dont know
Anialator November 9, 2010, 4:14 PM EST.
I totally agree with you,
because Sandy just talks to Mike when she has a break or something,and Lucy is being ignored all the time,and she is sick of it.. i know it. The only person that has payed more attention to Lucy,is Paulo.. but Paulo is with Jasmine.. so Lucy is allll alone in the corner having a emo moment.. waiting for someone to notice her.. alll alone..in the corner. And then theres Abbey.. at least he actually cares about people.. that is why Abbey is awesome.. and it would be so funny if he was Abraham Lincon.. xD lol
I bet Sandy would show up in this or the next chapter..
Cats4ever98 November 9, 2010, 5:45 PM EST.
sweet! I was missing Abbey and Daisy
Sterrance November 9, 2010, 5:50 PM EST.
you are all right, mike will end with elle and many sandwiches will be made. f this doesn’t happen, im gonna rage
lolwut November 9, 2010, 6:54 PM EST.
Boom November 9, 2010, 7:17 PM EST.
I think Jasmine’s bullshiting them.
she just come out of nowere and dates Paulo, it just does’t seam right… and this chapter is throwing lucy liking Paulo. she’s sad when she hears “Paulo’s girlie”, and she’s sad when she ask mike what he thinks of Jasmine in page 5 of this chapter.
Domafari November 9, 2010, 7:19 PM EST.
I bet it’s Abbey dressed up as John Wilkes Booth
Hubris November 9, 2010, 7:25 PM EST.
Selidor November 9, 2010, 8:20 PM EST.
What? do I read right, @cats4ever98 and @boom?
Lucy, from the very beginning has been bugging Mike, being downright cruel sometimes, calling him names and much more. He has supported her in her entire life.
Also, EVERYONE is constantly telling Lucy that she is not alone and she has other friends.
Now, let’s see other characters opinion about Mike:
Daisy -> thinks Mike is a jerk for finally defending himself against Lucy’s constant abuse.
David -> couldn’t care less about him. Even when he’s supposedly dead.
Paulo -> thinks very lowly of Mike and is never ever nice in any way to him.
Abbey -> thinks he HAS to date Lucy because, ahn, its his obligation.
Tess -> same as Abbey.
Lucy -> Thinks Mike is a jerk because he rejected her feelings. Because he HAVE to love her.
Mike’s the one that’s all alone.
And, about the Sandy chapter… WTF? She spends most of her time working without even thinking about Mike? Have you really read the chapter? Really? It seemed to me that Sandy is on the verge of a breakdown, all stressed about work, to be free from all that, wanting to be with Mike, but being responsible.
She has done NOTHING wrong.
I’m not particularly a “Lucy-Sandy” fan, but I really think Sandy has been by far the best consolation for Mike in the latest chapters…
What saddens me most is that probably Mike is going to end up with Lucy.
I really hope, Taeshi-san, that Lucy changes into a better person, before that.
Lyucs November 9, 2010, 8:22 PM EST.
look, if you 3 are going to duke it out, take it outside- I mean… to the forums… yeah…
I personally think that Lucy and Mike are both being jerks to each other right now and Mike’s looking for comfort with Sandy, which there’s nothing wrong with because he’s technically dating her. Although, instead of predicting future events, I’d rather patiently wait until what happens happens.
Baeleox November 9, 2010, 8:59 PM EST.
It’s Abbey. Big whoop.
Also, I just can sympathize with Lucy because almost every time Mike imagines Sandy as someone nearby, it’s Lucy. She’s probably pretty ****** that he always superimposes his love onto her when she loves him. The only exception is the one time he hugs Blur thinking it’s Sandy.
YinYangBell November 9, 2010, 10:08 PM EST.
Could’ve said it better myself Lyucs, well played my good man. Let us go for tea and sandviches later on, while I talk about everything britsh. Cheryo! (Or however the *%$@ you say that…))
Sandvich November 9, 2010, 10:56 PM EST.
LUCY YOU SJFSDL EVIL FLSDJFL JLFJSDF LSJDFD!!1
~AND AFTER EVERYTHING YOU PUT MIKE THROUGH, HE SHOULD HAVE FSDLING, PLADSED, ON, YOU!~
Mike doesn’t need Lucy anymore, he shud hang around solo till a girl wants him, not the other way around.
Hyper November 10, 2010, 4:04 AM EST.
It’s a matter of opinion. The judge, jury and executioner here is Taeshi, and until she finishes the story, we’ll have to suck it up and wait. All writers are god in their stories, so it all depends on her.
‘Lucy, from the very beginning has been bugging Mike, being downright cruel sometimes, calling him names and much more. He has supported her in her entire life.’
1- Lucy was so insecure of herself when she was younguer, that she thought that if she opened herself to others, she’d be seen as a weak person. To compensate for that, she was agressive and violent.
2- Downright cruel sometimes, yes, but I think that jumping into a river to try and save him and drown while doing so (thus developing a paralyzing fear to water) is a pretty good payback.
3- I will agree to the fact that Mike has been a better person than Lucy, but that doesn’t change the fact that she’s done good things as well. I mean, if she hadn’t been there after Sandy left, Mike would be an emo ******* crying in a corner with nobody to call a friend. Paulo was a dick, David was with Paulo, Abbey wasn’t there yet, and the other girls were too girlish.
Boom November 10, 2010, 1:34 PM EST.
Also, if you remember ‘Confrontation’, Lucy gets beat up for Mike. Yet another proof of her not being a completeley bad person.
Plus, in the end, Mike says:
‘I’ll always try to protect you, but it meant so much that you’d do the same for me. For helping, I don’t think I could ever repay you. Not in a million years’.
I think he could repay her instantly by actually accepting her love.
After that comes a kiss, which Mike seems to enjoy. Where are those feelings now, hmm? hmmmmm? HMMMMMMMMM?!?!?!?!?!
Boom November 10, 2010, 4:09 PM EST.
Oh, come on, Lucy. While I’m a fan of their pairing, give up on Mike. He’s way too stubborn on Sandy for that.
*continues ruining Grease*

Taeshi, I thank you from the bottom of my heart for giving us this comic, and i’ll need to thank Nanie for showing this comic to me.

hey its meh lolz March 27, 2011, 1:29 PM EST.
Lucy, just ****ing get over Mike already. It’s getting ****ing ridiculous after like 15 chapters. Go after Paulo instead. I don’t think Jasmine will last long. Tess certainly didn’t. So you still have a chance.
NintnedoSegaSonyGuy May 23, 2011, 5:24 PM EST.
@NSSG: *shakes head*
Hoheh July 7, 2011, 7:45 PM EST.
@NintendoSegaSonyGuy— Um, excuse me? You can’t just ‘get over’ a guy you loved almost all your life. And just because you want Lucy to get together with Paulo, doesn’t mean she has to. And no, I’m not MikexLucy (mikexsandyftw), but you can’t rush their relationship!
Flara August 1, 2011, 8:37 AM EST.
Whoa, and Paulo rolls a critical miss on his saving throw versus completely losing it like a little girl.
Is it weird that I was never afraid of the cops?
Or just really bourgeois?
