OH NO SOMEONE HAS PUSHED INTO SOMEONE, TIME TO SPECULATE ON WHAT IT MEANS
Ouch Augustus, OUCH. Totally loving this page now.
Panel 4 in particular, Beanie Cat to the rescue? Huh, and i just noticed Augustus’ mouth in panel 6..interesting expression.
Truly this push is deep and meaningful, almost seems intentional…Food for thought.
Shada September 14, 2011, 12:00 AM EST.
SuitCase is funny.
As for speculation, Lucy pushing Augustus is what made him not allow her to come on the bus.
I guess AugustusxLucy isn’t going to happen.
anonymous2 September 14, 2011, 12:00 AM EST.
daw poor Lucy :c
in other news,
this new style’s kinda growing on me.
i still think FFCat looks funny in it though
Symphonic September 14, 2011, 12:01 AM EST.
i’ve long given up on being first.
nice page as always.
G!@nN@ September 14, 2011, 12:01 AM EST.
Denied Lucy! Lol rape cat has changed his ways!
Lion September 14, 2011, 12:01 AM EST.
I don’t like Augustus, but i must say i do think its at least good that Lucy isn’t going to make that mistake, whatever that mistake is. idk like the page though. Thanks Taeshi and SuitCase
Deuce Moose September 14, 2011, 12:01 AM EST.
Poor luce…. when will you find a way to deal with your issues on your own…
feralsoul September 14, 2011, 12:02 AM EST.
Oh wow poor Lucy she’s geting rejected all over the place
kagura September 14, 2011, 12:02 AM EST.
That looked like it hurt when he hit her… I thought Augustus was going after that guy lol
Em September 14, 2011, 12:02 AM EST.
ouch, that hurt Augustus!
Bittersweet PauloxLucy September 14, 2011, 12:02 AM EST.
he is such a jerk ugh
!asian power! September 14, 2011, 12:02 AM EST.
lol it’s simple SuitCase, that guy bumping into Lucy is clearly a sign that 9/11 was an inside job….
Coda September 14, 2011, 12:03 AM EST.
Suitcase… You are fantastic. You scoundrel you.
Kikren September 14, 2011, 12:03 AM EST.
aww, left behind with harsh thoughts, augs, your so mean
assassin250 September 14, 2011, 12:04 AM EST.
That’s not funny. So stfu and stop trying to make jokes ‘cause it’s not working
G!@nN@ September 14, 2011, 12:04 AM EST.
Darn. Nobody got punched in the face. Whatevs, a good burning always makes up for physical pain.
TheMysteriousMan September 14, 2011, 12:05 AM EST.
I find this very weird.. why does Lucy want to go with him so bad? It doesn’t seem like her.
V September 14, 2011, 12:05 AM EST.
Day~Day September 14, 2011, 12:05 AM EST.
wow lucy was rejected by him… gosh shes going to be too depressed now…hopefully he apologizes to her…
Kyute September 14, 2011, 12:05 AM EST.
Augustus has it.
Sparkfur September 14, 2011, 12:05 AM EST.
Sorry Lucy, it looks like your next love interest is in another cast- *gets shot* X_X
Darf14 September 14, 2011, 12:06 AM EST.
got used to the art style good job taeshi
lolwut September 14, 2011, 12:07 AM EST.
Wait wait wait
That guy looks familiar :?
kurihiru September 14, 2011, 12:07 AM EST.
I feel like this new style is really highlighting the eyes and and ears. Anyway, this is a little heart-wrenching, but feels pretty satisfying. Can’t wait until Friday!
Kurtispj September 14, 2011, 12:10 AM EST.
Lucy is probably going to beat up that guy that pushed her! He’s clearly one of Alejandro’s minions.
Murderer September 14, 2011, 12:10 AM EST.
@G!@nN@:I wasn’t poking fun at 9/11, i was going along with SuitCase making fun of all the speculation about someone shoving Augustus in the other page. so I said something ridiculous to play along… get your panties out of a bunch
Coda September 14, 2011, 12:11 AM EST.
Lucy should stop smoking so much. Or maybe stop being a dragon.
Welp, this is pretty much what I expected to happen, and Augustus looks really…
rad in panel 2.
skmojo September 14, 2011, 12:11 AM EST.
Augustus’ collar….It’s so…..popped and pointy! I wish I had one. Lucy just got denied!
Levy September 14, 2011, 12:12 AM EST.
smoke is covering lucy’s mouth because taeshi gave up on drawing it right. LOL xD
Migrant forgot his pin September 14, 2011, 12:13 AM EST.
I know it was a tough way to learn a lesson, but Lucy needs to realize that she can’t be so dependent and desperate for company…
I apologize for not being able to think of more to say or discuss on this page; I don’t find anything real suspicious about a guy shoving Lucy out of the way.
*i-is totally not scared by the new “Comment Must Be INTERESTING” thing… t-totally*
Skygaze September 14, 2011, 12:15 AM EST.
in the last panel with Augustus his hand looks wayyyyy off. Really when you get down to it, the only thing that’s changed about the style is the way Taeshi is drawing the faces. The bodies are still the same boring blobby figures.
Nothing really different about the general coloring and background, so eh. I don’t see what’s so great about this “huge style change.”
Fred September 14, 2011, 12:15 AM EST.
panel 4 kid-with-beanie looks strangely similar to Paulo’s dad…
Steel September 14, 2011, 12:16 AM EST.
maybe people are not buying books cause they don’t want Mike to reach Sandy…Ever. >.> just a thought!
Candy Corn Lover September 14, 2011, 12:18 AM EST.
SHOBE FEST YAAAAAY!!!
Though for a moment, when Lucy got pushed, the lines on her arm almost looked like scars.
He may be looking out for Lucy though, and Lucy just wants a friend. Over all though, I’m glad Augusts didn’t smack her… I like him as a character! and without the need for Lucy as a girlfriend.
Jax September 14, 2011, 12:19 AM EST.
Great work so far, new style isn’t all that different in my not-so-artistic mind. Looks good so far. And I would not blame you if you falter in your work a little after the 20th, not sure for you, but GEARS, baby!
James S. September 14, 2011, 12:21 AM EST.
I still hope for that one thing, that will make this chapter cute and.. Well. Until now it has been the new style. I’m getting used to it, and it still looks good! Great page. :3
My God, Lucy, you got yourself a burn there. When will you stop looking for a new person and start being on your own?
Lily September 14, 2011, 12:22 AM EST.
Atlas September 14, 2011, 12:22 AM EST.
Only one page left?
Augustus is hot in this style. xD Gotta say!
Asche September 14, 2011, 12:23 AM EST.
Whew! I was worried Agustace was going to do something…rash.
Poor Lucy. She looks ******.
Nora Marie September 14, 2011, 12:24 AM EST.
I have seen that look before…ffc you better move….like to canada and changer your name because she is going to kill you
DinR September 14, 2011, 12:28 AM EST.
Oooh, Augustus. That wasn’t very nice. :c
Sam September 14, 2011, 12:32 AM EST.
hehe, is Lucy gonna run after it? /haha no.
I just wonder what will happen to Lucy, when her happiness will come. Though if it does, I would feel that the story is different due to her angst being gone, which has become a big part in the story for me. O_O
Fangirl September 14, 2011, 12:35 AM EST.
Go home Lucy. Or better yet, take his advice and go hang out with a friend. Couldn’t hurt. Just please show a little bit of independence. Please?
Also don’t breathe in those fumes. Not healthy blah blah blah.
Kroth September 14, 2011, 12:36 AM EST.
Next, a beanie-wearing student was found strangled at the back of the bus.
Musashi September 14, 2011, 12:37 AM EST.
It’s Paulo’s dad.
StarSturdy September 14, 2011, 12:43 AM EST.
Augustus plays hard to get.
Lucy don’t fall for him
I’m starting to appreciate the old technique more..
Hamshi September 14, 2011, 12:44 AM EST.
I smell something fishy….
Sarge September 14, 2011, 12:47 AM EST.
Augustus can be so snide. Why does she insist on letting herself get hurt? Lucy practically walks into every verbal trap he’s sprung, so why not just be nice for a change to catch him off guard?
Crystal September 14, 2011, 12:48 AM EST.
Augustus isn’t patient enough for a Lucy :< I kinda feel bad for Lucy… Though, if she were lonely, she might as well just go home and talk to strangers online. Probably as safe as going to Final Fantasy cat’s home
LikexMucy September 14, 2011, 12:57 AM EST.
Both techniques are equal in my mind now, either one is fine with me
Also, on line 7: OH SNAP! DO I HEAR A DOUBLE MEANING?!
Turbocharge September 14, 2011, 12:58 AM EST.
*STARES* beanie cat looks familiar—— hmmmmm 0.o
Perfect page!!! Loved it!!! Art wise any ways I feel bad for Lucy but I kinda feel as though aug is simply trying to say…. Protect her? Either way, great dialogue!!! Its good dialogue when it doesn’t sound corny, and it’s great when it is very realistic!!!! But seriously!!! Where have I seen that beanie cat before?!?!?!
Hmmm time to….. INVESTIGATE!!!! Be right back with new results that I won’t share because I am a jack ***!!!!
Found the beanie fiend… If Its who I think it is then… ****. I mean holy…. Shiiiiiiizzzzzznutbunies.
Lemme Sleep plz September 14, 2011, 1:01 AM EST.
Well awesome, What I said in the last page somewhat came true, though Augustus didn’t directly say it, but he did end up keeping her off his course.
Baxter September 14, 2011, 1:02 AM EST.
I like the new style with each new page you write, but I really suggest switching back to the old eyes, or a modified version of them. Especially for pannels like the last three. While they do make the characters look older, (which I’m assuming is one of the things you were going for), the older style brings out their emotions more.
Stripes September 14, 2011, 1:04 AM EST.
One more page left guys. We either see Lucy fume her way home, or we get to see Augustus punch Paulo’s Mini Dad in the face. ;D
Sky September 14, 2011, 1:04 AM EST.
you totally did this chapter to discourage AugustusxLucy fans didn’t you. I see how it is XP
RoseVee September 14, 2011, 1:08 AM EST.
At least we know Augustus’ opinion of Lucy. =/ To some extent at least.
the other white meat September 14, 2011, 1:10 AM EST.
See Lucy is just not used to not getting her way.
Fluffy September 14, 2011, 1:10 AM EST.
Wow lucy, u jus cannot win can u? As Bob Dylan would say, how does it feel?
augustus, we lucyX(input name other than augustus) fans thank u
Redneck September 14, 2011, 1:11 AM EST.
Yay the book sales passed 500
paulosawesome September 14, 2011, 1:13 AM EST.
You know, Maybe he’s going somewhere Lucy shouldn’t, doing something… Lucy shouldn’t xD
Laufente September 14, 2011, 1:13 AM EST.
Somehow, I think she needs to learn that life doesn’t revolve around her… >
Silvere September 14, 2011, 1:24 AM EST.
Poor Lucy, getting crap she doesn’t need at the moment. All she needs to do is find her friends. Then she’d be okay.
KiwiKoala September 14, 2011, 1:26 AM EST.
WAAAAAAAAAAAAGH!!! Boss September 14, 2011, 1:29 AM EST.
Rapecat is a jerk, but at least he know just how to call Lucy on her pathetic grabs for attention.
Spectre39 September 14, 2011, 1:30 AM EST.
like wow..she was being a tease an he pulls that someone hits her then he gets on pulls that crap an shes left behind…at this rate lucy will be hurt worse then what she already is =/
Darkfox September 14, 2011, 1:31 AM EST.
Well that was bound to happen since this chapter is only 6 pages long and we all know how Augustus is. Man, I’m starting to like him more and more.
Are you NOW gonna back home and try not to get yourself hurt even more Lucy? Yes? Imma take it as a yes.
Bearcoon September 14, 2011, 1:38 AM EST.
Push = “Get the hell out of my way”
There is nothing to it. No secret meaning, no dark intention, no subtle messa—
Alright, so it is a subtle message. A subtle message telling Lucy to get the hell out of the way…
Fayt September 14, 2011, 1:44 AM EST.
Panel 1 and 4, Augustus looks magnificent. I can understand his intolerance. From his perspective, Lucy is nothing but a usurper of any guy she can seize.
StarSturdy September 14, 2011, 1:51 AM EST.
[Accept Lucy into the bus]
[No] [Yes] (clicks no)
ACCESSES DENIED! : D
Aoriki September 14, 2011, 2:05 AM EST.
Goddamit, I’m getting sick of this. Just give Lucy a ****ing boy friend and quit the love triangles, it really starting to **** me off.
N-Star September 14, 2011, 2:05 AM EST.
Hmm, here is something interesting, in panel 4, when the guy bumps into Lucy, Augustus has a somewhat disgusted look on his face, perhaps he has a problem with violence, he doesn’t like having violence being done to him and possible doesn’t like it being done to others.
That would also kind of explain his face when he walks up the bus stairs.
Baxter September 14, 2011, 2:06 AM EST.
Oh dear, Lucy. ;A;
I’m feeling pity for her. ;n;
Zane September 14, 2011, 2:22 AM EST.
Beanie Cat kinda looks like Abraham, in my opinion.
Comedy September 14, 2011, 2:27 AM EST.
INCONSISTENCY! Augustus does not look like a loud talker, and the bus has to be pretty noisy. YET HE IS TALKING INTO LUCY’S DEAF EAR! And based on her expression in panel three, it seems she understood him perfectly.
Comedy September 14, 2011, 2:31 AM EST.
Gus really pick slightly less hostile brush-off strategies. Oh well.
Is there a method not to be bothered about possible bad comments? I try to be clear, fairly neutral, and un-combative already. This is oddly disheartening.
Hoheh September 14, 2011, 2:37 AM EST.
BURN LUCY, BURN!
Wr3h September 14, 2011, 2:38 AM EST.
Seeing this page, I keep thinking Augustus will find a dead bird in his mailbox one day.
I would laugh my butt off if that does happen.
Kellins September 14, 2011, 2:38 AM EST.
Ouch… talk about being left in the dust.
WHO DARE PUNCH LUCY IN THE ARM?! The cat in the beanie… that’s just uncalled for.
I’m a tad bit confused between the last three panels of the previous page (4) and the first two panels of this page… not really sure why he’s giving an angry look at her… or an annoyed look, whatever it is. I mean, sure, I would be angry too if I was pushed, but I wouldn’t be that, annoyed about it. I know I’m missing something… (Been sick over the weekend and still is, not really thinking straight sometimes)
Augustus’ expression in panel 6… why is he frowning? Also in panel 4, he looks angry that someone punched Lucy in the arm. Question is, why would he care?
Poor lucy, she always has her pets… which we haven’t seen them for quite some time now. Wish I could give her a hug though… but she would probably just hit me in return.
…plus I think I’ve grown to this new style already… still looks a tad bit strange on Augustus though… I’ll get over it eventually.
Blue Sly September 14, 2011, 2:51 AM EST.
We’re past 500! Nice!
Hoheh September 14, 2011, 2:51 AM EST.
Finally showed Lucy’s place. Yet indirectly. Well the time will come
Creepy are creepy eyes
Ana aka Knux-the-Killer September 14, 2011, 3:06 AM EST.
i found this website about a week ago an all i can say is “why?”
Lucy and Mike could of been great together but this guy haha hes hot for her i love them !
im kinda thinking this guy an lucy would get together but at the same time im sure hes just using her in a plot to get back at all of them
Madi-san September 14, 2011, 3:14 AM EST.
Maybe this will ‘slam the door shut in the face’ of those LucyxAugustus lovers…
EtherSaga September 14, 2011, 3:28 AM EST.
Augustus 1 Lucy 0 Pwned…. xD
Leonmaster September 14, 2011, 3:38 AM EST.
our princess is in another castle, well lucy gets to try again
weird129863 September 14, 2011, 3:52 AM EST.
Calm and okay? Watch her fake it.
Wants gone away? She can’t take it.
Trying to play? Will she make it?
Stuck here. Hoo-ray. Hope you break it.
By it, I mean the cycle of sadness.
Hoheh September 14, 2011, 4:13 AM EST.
Comedy: Augustus’ “Look” was loud enough for Lucy to take notice and focus all her hearing on him, which is why she didn’t notice the impatient guy who shoved her. Many of the times she’s been caught not hearing a person it’s because they didn’t bring her attention to them, because if you do she focuses. She’s lived with the partial deafness her whole life, she knows how to cope. She just needs a heads up.
Taeshi September 14, 2011, 4:15 AM EST.
The impatient guy looks like that ULTIMATE VILLAIN~! …that was shown in like a panel and a half 875 chapters ago. OBVIOUSLY!!!
StarSturdy September 14, 2011, 4:30 AM EST.
anyone else think the guy who pushed Lucy looked a bit like Paulo’s father?
animelord September 14, 2011, 5:03 AM EST.
Augustus’ jacket looks more awesome than usual… WANT
Desterga September 14, 2011, 5:04 AM EST.
still like the old style better , though …
Zero September 14, 2011, 5:13 AM EST.
Pfft… the bus driver’s face looks like my cat when I disturb him while he’s grooming himself. Partial tongue and all.
Another random theory I’m going to throw out there. Lucy doesn’t want to hang out with Augustus… she’s trying to find something out about him.
Hey, anything is possible in this whack comic. (Whack as in crazy, not anything bad…) Plus, is the idea really so insane? Lucy can be stable… just not when it comes to Mike.
Then again, her face looks pretty desperate in the last panel… but her mouth is covered…
Missme September 14, 2011, 5:43 AM EST.
You know you’ve hit rock bottom when a potential rapist rejects you.
Saiyza September 14, 2011, 5:49 AM EST.
Augustus is the master of the hand-switch.
Monday looks like left hand on Lucy, today it’s the right o.O
Joe September 14, 2011, 6:14 AM EST.
NOOOOOOOOOO! LucyxAugustus has to LIVEEEE!
Cata :3 September 14, 2011, 6:14 AM EST.
Lucy is getting destroyed this chapter
Kindle kat September 14, 2011, 6:23 AM EST.
Leaving Lucy olone like that. Oh no he didn’t :H
nat3prodigy September 14, 2011, 6:26 AM EST.
Oh yes he did! GJ Augustus, ditching Lucy like that. You might think me mean for this, but I think its a good lesson for Lucy to learn that she just can’t cling onto anybody instantly and expect them to like it. Finally someone fights back.
Anon September 14, 2011, 6:31 AM EST.
oh yeah I forgot Augy lives in evilsville he cant let anyone come home with him
Rainbow September 14, 2011, 6:44 AM EST.
Hmm, a nice “Hi Augustus, Can i please come with you home, because i’d love to get to know you/I dont want to go home i need company” Would maybe be more satisfying than how she’ve acted til now. I understand his rage in general, she acted silly. Silly Lucy!
Udyr September 14, 2011, 6:53 AM EST.
Two words: That Dick!
ScrabMaster September 14, 2011, 7:01 AM EST.
Lucy, stop being a ******* and get on your own bus
CriticalQuit September 14, 2011, 7:09 AM EST.
Augustus is not the kind of character to put up with Lucy’s stunts.
Like a boss.
Lycan September 14, 2011, 7:22 AM EST.
Hopefully this puts an end to Lucy’s wandering around looking for male attention.
Slick September 14, 2011, 7:40 AM EST.
That went so much better than expected.
Hannibal September 14, 2011, 7:59 AM EST.
Maybe Lucy will learn from this that not every boy she runs into is going to melt all over her cause she’s adorable.
Sidenote, first three panels are my favorite. There’s just something about people that aren’t Mike insulting lucy that satisfies me.
Tickle Monster September 14, 2011, 8:07 AM EST.
Lucy’s a good person but even good people can get better and she does need to work on some things (but who doesn’t). Augustus has his hate face on whenever someone pushes someone else. I like it…it shows that he’s a big one for respect. Bus drivers all have a hate face, haters! Over all, two thumbs high.
2tailed_fox September 14, 2011, 8:16 AM EST.
Thank god someone finally, FINALLY, told Lucy no, and meant it. Now she can go the hell home and not be bratty.
Clare September 14, 2011, 8:29 AM EST.
That was not as epic as I had hoped…but that’s probably a good thing.
I still don’t get how sour Augustus become over Lucy starting from this chapter. After all, in Pillow Talk and Call Waiting, he seemed quite eager to hang out with her.
What the hell is the significance of people being shoved around? In Panel 4, when Lucy is shoved by some *******, Augustus sees and he looks even more ****** off than before. I got the impression he followed the guy on the bus and was prepared to say something to him about it.
NintendoSegaSonyGuy September 14, 2011, 8:32 AM EST.
I hope your aware……..
…………………. THIS MEANS WAR
Huh? September 14, 2011, 8:34 AM EST.
??? September 14, 2011, 8:45 AM EST.
Aww Lucy’s trying to find new shoulder to cry on
Tastycakez September 14, 2011, 8:50 AM EST.
Augustus rocks, hail to the emo kids..on a more on topic note,its kind of satisfying to see lucy shut down like that…maybe im just a bad person that way though.
SkyRonin September 14, 2011, 8:54 AM EST.
This is like one of those things where some has been pushed around too much and they get really ****** when other people do it to him or others. Next page, beanie cat is gonna get his *** kicked.
Oh Augustus you remind me so much of me. I know you didnt try to rape Daisy. You were only stealing a kiss Dx the way she did to mike but since its a guy doing it to a girl all Hell BREAKs Loose.
HakuInaba September 14, 2011, 9:20 AM EST.
Wow, someone who actually doesn’t want to be around Lucy? Or maybe it’s just tactics to get her more interested…
theunwiseman September 14, 2011, 9:23 AM EST.
Poor Lucy. If only she could find a way to be a quiet kitty … oh wait, she wouldn’t be Lucy if she did that. I hate to see her throw herself at a guy like that in exchange for something to do since Michael AND Paulo are now concerned with their women.
Ashanti September 14, 2011, 9:29 AM EST.
I gotta give it to Augustus, he’s no shove over like Mike, not takin her crap, points for the bus thing dude.
Thamix September 14, 2011, 9:35 AM EST.
I think Augustus is actually helping her.. that bus its probably a living hell.
And its for the best, this couple would be weird.
Harus September 14, 2011, 10:00 AM EST.
The artwork in this chapter does seem to be getting a lot more cooler with each page, good job, keep it up.
Starkeyblade September 14, 2011, 10:28 AM EST.
Always have tomorrow Lucy~ hehehe this couple would amuse me greatly but too bad it might not happen. Can it sort of happen?
AmberPhoenix September 14, 2011, 10:49 AM EST.
why do i wanna think this reminds me of a scott pilgram style of drawing >>?? or is it just me ?
inumaru September 14, 2011, 11:20 AM EST.
****ing finally, someone who has the balls to stand up to Lucy that isn’t Mike.
(Also isn’t it funny how people aren’t screaming and hollering and doing complete 180s with their opinions of Augustus? Rough deal Mike)
StushiJaguar September 14, 2011, 11:29 AM EST.
Because most people only know Augustus to be the way he always has been. As with Mike, he was one sweet and lovable, now he isn’t. Kinda like Mike had a grey area people ignore and August has yet to create one for himself.
And further more, what happens if Lucy pulls a Paulo and hitches to the back of the bus? Hope she’s not that desperate for strange company.
Jax September 14, 2011, 11:35 AM EST.
i think he is protecting her… that other guy… i dont think he is a good person…
Andresm September 14, 2011, 11:57 AM EST.
Bus Driver is not amused. Poor Lucy, she just wanted to hang out with Final Fantasy Cat.
Xenos September 14, 2011, 12:13 PM EST.
is it me or does beanie cat kinda look like Paulo’s dad? btw I really do love the new style =3 I think you should keep it from now on
Luna September 14, 2011, 1:10 PM EST.
TWO WORDS!…..Poor Lucy
Flaze September 14, 2011, 1:16 PM EST.
lucy needs to get over herself if she thinks everyones just gonna let her do what she wants and push them around like mike and paulo did. not everyones a push over specially not Augustus. lol what is she thinking?
clara September 14, 2011, 1:24 PM EST.
too bad he didn’t punch her in the mouth, or do something brutally violent.
way to be a *****, augustus.
he better not be protecting her from anyone, being shown any form of kindness is the last thing lucy needs right now… she needs a good beating and to feel hopeless and alone, frightened and forgotten.
don’t worry, i still hate paulo, just as much… hopefully he gets hit by augustus’ bus.
Thanatos September 14, 2011, 1:31 PM EST.
I don’t think any speculation really needs to be made here. Like at all. Augustus isn’t playing “hard to get” and he isn’t being all secretive and villainous about what he’s doing either. Dude just wants to go home and, since he’s already anti-social and doesn’t like her, doesn’t want Lucy tagging along.
Sure I might be wrong but sometimes stuff really is just as simple as it looks
Kroth September 14, 2011, 1:34 PM EST.
Lucy needs to get over herself. This whole cast needs to get over themselves! It’s starting to bug me how much these people can’t just suck it up and deal with what they got. AARGH!!!
Xzepher September 14, 2011, 1:39 PM EST.
IT MEANS AIDS LOL
YYC on GC September 14, 2011, 1:42 PM EST.
Augusts uses FLAMETHROWER!
Critical Hit! It’s super effective!!
Hehe, joking aside, though, I haven’t seen a verbal burn this powerful in a good while. He may be a dick, but something tells me that this is something that Lucy needed to hear…
Chocothunda September 14, 2011, 2:01 PM EST.
Augustus x Lucy is silly.
Lucy is a silly girl too. she has to grow up
Momoa September 14, 2011, 2:10 PM EST.
Augustus is the best for saying that line, many thanks are needed so… THANK YOU AUGUSTUS!! Now that she can’t bother anyone esle maybe she can rethink and asset her life unless she finds a new character to bother… if she does then i’ll lose the slither of hope for her to becoming a better person, WAY less bitchy, WAY less desperate and etc. And I have to say I really like the new style I have to admit it makes Lucy look cute as much I don’t like her right now, but it’s odd. Sometimes the new style makes her look cute but sometimes it makes her look odd or heavy-set like in panel one, but hey it’s still new. I think it looks good on Augustus for his evil closr-up faces because his outline and eyesss turn into a dark red maroon color which just looks awesome, but it’s still too early to really say to hate it or like it since we haven’t really seen anyone esle in the style plus it’s only been 5 pages.
Wait September 14, 2011, 2:45 PM EST.
When the guy bumps Lucy, it looks like Augustus is ****** off at him. When she calls for him about finding her way back he has a certain expression going on. I think hes either gonna kick that guys *** on the next page, or he genuinely told Lucy to **** off
Sandvich September 14, 2011, 2:56 PM EST.
You know what…
If Lucy doesn’t end up in an asylum by the end of this webcomic…
I will be surprised.
AflacMan13 September 14, 2011, 2:58 PM EST.
Sandvich, I did notice his face on panel 4, but didn’t realize what you said! I think you’re right we’ll see in the next page.
V September 14, 2011, 2:59 PM EST.
That was mean of him : p Hope Lucy won’t let him go with that (Good chance she won’t ^^). As for me, I’m a little disappointed that we may not see what kind of event she may have lived if she took that bus. Well, I still look forward for the next pages : )
Good new style by the way, I miss somehow the old black lines but it looks great
Dark Reader September 14, 2011, 3:16 PM EST.
I like how beanie-cat goes out of his way to elbow Lucy. It’s like he has some sort of compulsion to harm any unprotected arms that enter his sight. I feel sorry for beanie cat and his ticks.
Some guy September 14, 2011, 3:38 PM EST.
Poor Lucy baby, she’s kinda into jerks, nickname for Lucy complements of David
Issun September 14, 2011, 4:09 PM EST.
This is the only time I’ll respect this jerk. Lucy doesn’t need to be around someone that low. c:
Rachel Vang September 14, 2011, 4:47 PM EST.
good for you Augustus! get it together Lucy! lol, I still like her though, but, unfortunately he’s right for once.
Pickles September 14, 2011, 4:49 PM EST.
Yeah i totally agree with Augustus, Lucys just being weird and needy, shes actually starting to get on my nerves
Jack September 14, 2011, 4:59 PM EST.
Im glad she isn’t going with Augustus. Why, you ask? Because if you remember from earlier comics, Augustus is in the gang with that gangster cat. (er waterer his name was) if she had gone there, she’d be dead
IDog September 14, 2011, 5:06 PM EST.
Augustus vs Lucy! Round One went to Lucy, but Augustus made a great comeback and won Round Two! On Friday, we see the showdown of the century come to a close! Who will win? The insecure, violent lovebug Lucy, or the mysterious, dangerous punk Augustus? Tune in next time to find out!
Announcer Cat September 14, 2011, 5:39 PM EST.
Because bumping into someone is penchant for a violent love triangle
The Courier September 14, 2011, 5:43 PM EST.
REJECTED! oh Lucy, when will it work out for you?
Still wanna see Paulo in the new style, so I hope it carries over to the next chapter as well.
Eveco September 14, 2011, 6:17 PM EST.
*GASP* I SHALL NOW NEEDLESSLY SPECULATE OVER ABSOLUTELY NOTHING BECAUSE SUITCASE TOLD US TO!!! Loving the new style, by the way!!
Mettlebird September 14, 2011, 6:27 PM EST.
Yay finally got what she deserves
Matthew September 14, 2011, 6:30 PM EST.
there must be a reason why he doesnt want her to follow him. NOT bcuz he wants to be a jerk! I wonder what it is though… hmm… must have thinking face… …
Timni September 14, 2011, 6:39 PM EST.
@Wait: Fail. Lucy usually says little and just tries not to bother anyone. Try reading the comic you’re commenting on. Thank you.
@StarSturdy: That guy looks nothing like Alejandro. You’re exaggerating how long it was ago. A lot. Chapters 12 and 41. 54 and 25 chapters ago.
@Udyr: Name one occasion Lucy has said anywhere near that many words in one, single time. She’s not a talker, but good luck.
@Dark Reader: There’s a pretty good chance that Lucy actually will let him go, for today. Maybe longer, but I’m not totally sure.
@IDog: While Augustus isn’t really the sort to pull something like that, a surprise visit by Alejandro is all it would take… Good thinking!
@Thanatos: No. Not cool.
@ANumberOfComments: My, we have some mean-spirited commentators here.
@The comic: Lucy is going to need a distraction quick to help her forget to wallow in self-loathing… Poor girl always seems to blame herself at the end of the day. Like with the sleepover. Yeah, that ship happening would have been nice. But Lucy shouldn’t hate herself for not being ready for a relationship at, what, 11!? She has justified issues with letting her guard down with others. In kindergarten, she did and it set the girl up for a lot of hurt until she finally gave up on others. She’s been hurt.
Even though it hurts inside to think of it, Mike and Paulo are the only guys she likes romantically and both taken. She’s not gotten rmantic at all with Mike, even in question, since chapter 51, Paulo since 53. If she was a jerk at heart, she’d be trying harder to broke one of the two couples up. But she doesn’t. She lets them be. In 65, she even tried to keep Paulo from touching her, enjoyable for her though it was, because he was in a relationship.
Basically, all I’m saying is to stop calling Lucy a jerk. That’s a common tsundere thing to do, moostly with love interests. She’s going to let them be taken. She’s jealous of Jasmine and bitter with Sandy, but she can leave it at that. Her two guys she likes are happy. Even though it hurts, she’s glad for that. The only one she blames at the end of the day is herself.
“Another Path” shows Lucy and Paulo are very compatible.
“Another Chance” shows Augustus truly loves Daisy and had no rape intentions for her.
Hoheh. Good day, all.
Hoheh September 14, 2011, 6:50 PM EST.
@ Hoheh: THANK YOU. I’m glad there’s someone else like me out there for BCB.
Squishable September 14, 2011, 7:04 PM EST.
@ Hoheh I agree with ALL that you said. I have theories on Augustus . …. I did research and resd the comic twice :3 But seriously.. some people are so mean to the characters. Lawl. The only character that I’ve seen that were truly mean was Tess when she was with Roger , Roger, and Alejandro and his ‘dawg’ lololol . Ahem. But Lucy just doesnt know how to interact. is like when a boy picks on a girl because he likes her. She just didnt know what to do with her feelings.
HakuInaba September 14, 2011, 7:20 PM EST.
Gah, the day I have been dreading for weeks….
I have finally read the entire archive!
It’s like the day after Christmas times a million.
Fruvous September 14, 2011, 7:21 PM EST.
Finally, someone who’s thinking and not just incoherently screaming that Lucy is a jerk..
I know that Lucy and Augustus don’t get along very well, but what Augustus said was not called for
DeliciousSin September 14, 2011, 7:46 PM EST.
Let me put some speculation in your speculation so you can speculate while you speculate.
Magus September 14, 2011, 7:52 PM EST.
I really wish Mike would just be nice to Lucy for once, hell it may snap her out of this rut of feeling like she has no one to turn to. That may sound weird, because it appears that he is being nice to her in the earlier chapters, but he is not! He even explains himself a couple chapters back, that he isn’t nice to Lucy, he is just humoring her to make her feel like she isn’t alone. Be nice Mike, pwease?
Baxter September 14, 2011, 8:16 PM EST.
Nah, it’s not that bad, it’s the day in the new year when work restarts and then you’ve got to get off your *** for the first time in about a week X a million.
Akkryls September 14, 2011, 8:16 PM EST.
why isn’t he interested in her? didn’t he consider her to be a challenge?
and this stil dosen’t tell us why she dosn’t go back to any one of her other friends? maybe explore her feelings with the closet lesbian tess.
keios September 14, 2011, 8:16 PM EST.
in the forth panel i was really hoping that Augustus was about to beat of the guy that pushed lucy…so close but yet so far…:’(
sarah579 September 14, 2011, 8:41 PM EST.
Could it be.. that FF-cat has feelings for Lucy?
Ronyle143 September 14, 2011, 9:14 PM EST.
I may just be overthinking and/or hoping for some evident decency in Augustus, but do I see some anger in those eyes when funny-hat-cat pushes Lucy, hmmmmmmmm?
PossiblyVenomous September 14, 2011, 9:14 PM EST.
That guys is a jerk
JustSomeCritic September 14, 2011, 9:20 PM EST.
Oh dear lucy. Look at the things u get urself into.
Purple Platypi September 14, 2011, 9:32 PM EST.
All alone. Deja vu. Poor Lucy.
Dusk September 14, 2011, 9:41 PM EST.
Everyone IS turning against Lucy… Well.. I wish she wouldn’t be so reliable on people and suck it up, be the tough Lucy “act” If only she was tough like that for real.. I would LOVE that Lucy..
Smephers September 14, 2011, 9:48 PM EST.
ata boy Gus you tell her!
Different Adam September 14, 2011, 9:49 PM EST.
Even though Augustus is being a really big jerk here you have to give him some credit. Lucy refused to hang out with him before but now wants to be buddy buddy because she is all alone. She is really only using Augustus if you look at it that way, if someone was trying to use me i would kick them off the bus too.
Voice September 14, 2011, 9:53 PM EST.
Leave her in the dusts, not a good move, but an effective one…
Ronyle143 September 14, 2011, 9:56 PM EST.
What`s trying to do lucy? i don`t get it!
LuckyCat September 14, 2011, 11:12 PM EST.
I think Augustus peraphs lives in a bad area with street gangs, and push someone is a sign of hierarchy xD
SFox September 14, 2011, 11:23 PM EST.
God, I am way too nice. I’d be stuck with Lucy forever if i was in Mike’s position, and I’d end up letting her come home with me if I were in Auggys position. You know what Lucy needs.. A job then she’d have something to do after school. Aside from the play and other such festivities. One more page left. What’s next!? Can’t wait for Friday!
Serigo September 14, 2011, 11:30 PM EST.
I’m trying really hard not to be a fangirl over Augustus :3 -shot- I think ( if he were human x3; ) he would look pretty cute though :3 -doubleshot-
ANYHOW. I like the new style
anon September 15, 2011, 12:14 AM EST.
Lucy has been DENYYYED!
Cadenn September 15, 2011, 12:33 AM EST.
That’s another point for Final Fantasy cat. We’re about even in the score here but I think Lucy has the home field advantage with a bigger crowd cheering for her. Stay tuned to another episode of Drama Kitties!
Darkfox September 15, 2011, 12:37 AM EST.
I suddenly have no sympathy for Lucy any more. Seems to me she’s rather selfish, and ever since Mike got fed up with her crap she’s been in an increasingly entertaining spiral of madness/despair. She’s just now reached the point where she’ll cling to anyone who even acknowledges her existence.
In other words, a hyper-dramatization of the typical girl thing, in which they keep a guy around as a “spare friend” to use when their regular buddies aren’t available, much like changing out a spare tire, who she generally treats horribly, and then becomes indignant when he suddenly isn’t there anymore.
The difference here is that Lucy is getting what she deserves, an emotional slap across the face. In the real world she’d just assassinate the guy’s character and tell her friends what a jerk he is.
Wow, this was longer than I thought it’d be.
Aethrys September 15, 2011, 1:16 AM EST.
Augustus is mean when he wants to be left alone. Which is all the time.
Tacsi September 15, 2011, 1:17 AM EST.
Boyfriend of the week? But… she only showed interest in two guys for, like, the past couple of months, and she turned one of them down. Paulo slept with two girls in one week and doesn’t catch any flack for it. Good ol’ double standards.
BlueSaved September 15, 2011, 1:45 AM EST.
In panel 6, Augustus’ mouth looks kinda squiggly. Maybe he’s sad, or he hates himself at the moment for being so stern.
@Tacsi. Your comment is YESH!
StarSturdy September 15, 2011, 1:56 AM EST.
Lucy = reeeally out of character in this chapter. Or maybe she’s just trying too hard to be liked by Augustus. Either way, it’s kind of annoying fffff
isabelle September 15, 2011, 2:48 AM EST.
Augustus is quite austere in this page. HA! Did you see what i did there?
I’M A LOSER!
StarSturdy September 15, 2011, 3:00 AM EST.
Augustus, good job for not falling for that prude’s wiles. If you can even call it that.
Stupid chick needs to just stop. Play a video game or something, get a god damned hobby.
tony September 15, 2011, 3:21 AM EST.
@Bluesaved, That is a very good point. I didn’t think of that. And, yeah, Paulo was left of pretty easily… =\\ I love him and all but still…
Missme September 15, 2011, 5:34 AM EST.
@Hoheh Where is this another chance comic? I can’t seem to find it.
I think I get how Augustus feels he just spent the day trying not kill the idiots in class and all he wants is a nice quiet ride home, which he wouldn’t get with Lucy around. I mean everyone (I know I have) has those days where they just want to be left alone and don’t want to deal with any drama BS.
Saria September 15, 2011, 6:50 AM EST.
@isabelle: actually, I think Lucy is quite in character. but ehh, she is sorta annoying me too.
I wonder if Augustus is going to go up to that guy who pushed Lucy or something. o:
‘cause Lucy doesn’t seem like the type to get bullied lol.
Rureey September 15, 2011, 7:12 AM EST.
Saria: Another Chance was a topwebcomics incentive. If you want to see it you’d have to pay for BCI now.
Taeshi September 15, 2011, 7:46 AM EST.
Wait, WTF! MOFO CAT! he was just a kid in the first chapters! WHAT HAPPEN!! (mofo cat is the one with the benie) If I renember he was playing frizzbe with spagetti dog within the first chapters before we see david and paulo for the first time. .__. I am reading to much of this comic I have renembered the extras and have given them nick names…
Kit September 15, 2011, 8:03 AM EST.

Speaking of the Book sale animation, I wonder what will happen when he reaches/passes Lucy and Paulo.
Baxter September 15, 2011, 2:32 PM EST.
Perhaps Lucy will follow Mike and Paulo will stay behind.
BCA September 15, 2011, 2:39 PM EST.
Lucy deserved that push. And that abandonment. Just saying.
Arkairyn September 15, 2011, 4:56 PM EST.
Why? she hasn’t done anything bad … yet.
AwesomeKid14 September 15, 2011, 5:11 PM EST.
I don’t like how people keep beating up on Lucy, she doesn’t deserve bad treatment, she hasn’t done anything to be hated in return, she only wants things to be like what they used to be with her and Mike. Poor lucy…
Baxter September 15, 2011, 5:12 PM EST.
Lucy is forever alone. QQ
Let the LucyxLuxy begin!
Zekeon September 15, 2011, 7:03 PM EST.
this a guest chapter?cuz the drawin style its..its horrible,ne?(‘ne?’ is japenes 4 ‘isint it?’ or ‘right?’ & ‘Tenchi’ is japenes 4 ‘Angel’)
Tenchi September 15, 2011, 7:19 PM EST.
@Tenchi This is not a guest chapter, it’s the new style Suitcase is using =w= and we all know that it’s not “ne” it’s Nai. *Tenshi, not tenchi.
Hatsune Miku September 15, 2011, 7:24 PM EST.
@ Awesomekid14 and Baxter
I would disagree (except the ‘yet’ part.) Lucy sometimes treats people in the wrong way. She’ll sometimes push them around or tease them too far, causing a great dislike of her. I’m not saying she does this all the time, but the it’s the majority of it Honestly, she’s not my favorite character anymore. The way she acts is so annoying and it seems like she trys to act all high and mighty. She acts like she can do whatever she wants and can get away with it. No one likes that type of person :|
DarkCrystal828 September 15, 2011, 7:51 PM EST.
Last three panels look copy pasted lol
Aside from that, good job with the art and whatnot. Can’t wait for tomorrow’s
Baxter September 15, 2011, 8:03 PM EST.
Woah, that’s totally not me^, It’s not copy pasted at all.
Baxter September 15, 2011, 8:11 PM EST.
Panel 6 drips with “just leave me with my dark life kthx”
Ruby September 15, 2011, 8:15 PM EST.
Notice he looks angry at the person who “bumped” oh so accidentaly into her.
Joey September 15, 2011, 8:54 PM EST.
I find it hilarious that Augustus refuses to take ANY of Lucy’s melodramatic Type-A Tsundere ********. He’s just about right between Mike’s worn-down intolerance and Paulo’s tendency to buckle in a stiff breeze (even though he managed to grow backbone as far as Jazz is concerned.). He’ll talk to her, yes, but he’s been clearly telling her that he’s not interested, and Lucy [obvious]doesn’t take rejection well[/obvious].
Also, OH SWEET CRYSTAL DRAGON JESUS SOMEONE BUMPED INTO LUCY THE LORD HAS RISEN HIDE THE EGGS

I just now noticed how pretty the sky is. There’s this arc of a light purple in one of the middle panels that’s artsy and wonderful. I was going to say the texture looks kind of watercoloury? But I think I just need to clean my screen.
whoa September 16, 2011, 6:54 AM EST.
Don’t mess with Final fantasy cat, he’s a max level ********* that learned “Mind****”
Ellipse September 17, 2011, 6:04 AM EST.
I don’t like not being on lucy’s side, but she kinda asked for that…
Shocky September 19, 2011, 7:33 AM EST.
augustus u jerk!!
DD September 24, 2011, 3:52 PM EST.
Huh. What do you know. Go Augustus.
Though cruel, Lucy needed that reality check.
Rydux October 2, 2011, 10:52 PM EST.
Actually that dude, in a way, was Protecting her by NOT allowing her to follow where he LIVES because
“You. Know. Who.” is out for blood because of lucy, back at that one ally?
remember? scar-face? yeah, thats what im geussing anyways,
and im 80 % sure he was protecting her. most “Villian-ish but heroic deep inside characters do.” gotta trust me on this one, i have a good feeling about this. e we

We may never know.
