GrassyGrass November 10, 2011, 10:02 PM EST.
It seems that Mike has a weakness: VIDEO GAMES. And guess what? THE PHONE….. STUFF WILL JUST GET REAL MONDAY, HUH!
Mayonaka November 10, 2011, 10:02 PM EST.
I looooove where this is going. Keep it up! Mike’s embarrassed face in the last panel is fantastic.
Kitcat Face November 10, 2011, 10:04 PM EST.
I’m going to savor these last good moments for I know that Taeshi will break our hearts once the drama starts.
Murderer November 10, 2011, 10:05 PM EST.
Gee whiz, WHO COULD THE MYSTERIOUS CALLER BE?
Reccio November 10, 2011, 10:06 PM EST.
Randomness forever!!!!!! I lo0ve this comic. Bitter sweet candy bowl is rather well written. I’ve read some equestria daily in my day…… Mikes so adorable when he’s a jerk.
00Bread November 10, 2011, 10:06 PM EST.
I sense Sandy calling…
Zendikar November 10, 2011, 10:06 PM EST.
Never has the buzzing of a mobile phone been quite so menacing and foreboding. Now we are almost certain it is coming from a certain young lady!
Mr Misfortune November 10, 2011, 10:07 PM EST.
Damn it Sandy, It was going to well. Thank you so much for the early update Taeshi. I’m loving this sooooo much. can’t wait for more.
Deuce Moose November 10, 2011, 10:09 PM EST.
Hopefully its just david.
Ben November 10, 2011, 10:09 PM EST.
DAMN IT SANDY!!!
…Oh, its just Paulo…
Ice Shield November 10, 2011, 10:11 PM EST.
Mike!!! Just throw the phone away!!!! NOW!!!!!!!!!!
Just stay with your old friend for once in a while without thinking about Sandy…
By the way… YEAH EARLY UPDATE
Enialys November 10, 2011, 10:17 PM EST.
Thanks for the early update! You rock my socks.
Karoropuffs November 10, 2011, 10:19 PM EST.
Early update? Blasphemy! And yup, I totally see it coming.
Marshmallow November 10, 2011, 10:24 PM EST.
Early update!!! Yeey!! now i can catch up on some sleep from being sick! ^^

Serapharah November 10, 2011, 10:27 PM EST.
This update came a bit earlier than usual, But that means I get to sleep earlier now
Glad to see these two getting along
Now onto Monday!

jackkuro November 10, 2011, 10:44 PM EST.
lucy in the fifth panel OMG! she looks cuter than ever.
meleeman November 10, 2011, 10:44 PM EST.
awwwwww how i missed this thing
Lucas November 10, 2011, 10:47 PM EST.
Something tells me
Either drama will go down
Or someone like Paulo or Davit is calling.
OR TEXTING IDUNNO
SplatterWolf November 10, 2011, 10:47 PM EST.
jajajjaa i never expected that to coming.. poor lucy, but sandy is with mike, that’s fact, but mike is going to be a jerk and lucy will badmouth or something like that xD
Knight-K November 10, 2011, 10:51 PM EST.
The Panel where Lucy is saying “Mike…” is probably the cutest panel ever.
Calll Me Tom November 10, 2011, 10:54 PM EST.
Uh-OH! This can’t be good for the regrowing thing they call friendship!!! Im LucyxPaulo AND LucyxMike. BUt PauloxTess is pretty awesome too.
tana November 10, 2011, 10:54 PM EST.
Mike, i told you to apologize. What the hell is this?
StarSturdy November 10, 2011, 10:54 PM EST.
StarSturdy November 10, 2011, 10:57 PM EST.
Man, it’s been so long since we’ve seen them… converse this way. I’m shocked at how fast Mike is warming back up to Lucy. I bet he missed the hell out of her all this time…ugh, it’s sick…What a shame, too. He acted like a dick to her all this time but secretly he always wanted things to be normal for the two of them again.
Er, that’s what I’m interpreting, anyway. I could be wrong.
Is Sandy calling? I bet she is, but we can’t disclose the possibility that it might be someone else. Or it’s a text, not a phone call. Or Mike hears it buzzing and yet he’s not going answer it.
NintendoSegaSonyGuy November 10, 2011, 11:01 PM EST.
Yay, they’re become friends again! And I wonder who’s calling?
Love November 10, 2011, 11:02 PM EST.
I can already see it now.
Incoming Call From: SANDY <3
Krys the Wytch November 10, 2011, 11:03 PM EST.
Jezzum crow… Mike has become a tsundere! It all makes sense now… but isn’t he stealing Lucy’s schtick?
Trace November 10, 2011, 11:05 PM EST.
I was all super happy and then I noticed that phone.. And my friend noticed it, and now we have been spazzing for like 10 minutes.
Mewzia November 10, 2011, 11:12 PM EST.
Man I really hope it’s now Sandy on the phone. I hope is something less dramatic… like Paulo’s penor…
Lolllama November 10, 2011, 11:16 PM EST.
MIKE!! FRIENDSHIP!! GOODNESS AMEN.
The phone?? Sandy?! Ignore it!! D;
Fangirl November 10, 2011, 11:18 PM EST.
sandy, i swear to bast, if that’s you calling, I WILL KICK YOU SO HARD!!!!
Anomymoose November 10, 2011, 11:19 PM EST.
I really hope they at least become friends, even if it’s just friends it’s fine. I never did care about them being “Together” anyways
Fu-Rank November 10, 2011, 11:19 PM EST.
we all know what that buzz is… gurg. l:( and they were just getting along…. i hope that u know mikey ignores it or tells sandy that he is busy. I mean COME ON. NOW? REALLY?
lemme sleep plz November 10, 2011, 11:23 PM EST.
Ignore the phone, go into your closet, and get out your blue scarf.
Thank you for your time.
Revands November 10, 2011, 11:27 PM EST.
Get the phone!!! Sandy calls for your love!!
Atlas November 10, 2011, 11:30 PM EST.
Guess Mike is somewhat admitting he felt lonely all this time. I know how that feels, most of my games are single player only. Haven’t had any friends come over frequently for years.
Mike can’t just ignore the phone… it doesn’t want to be cruel to Sandy. This friendship is almost renewed though! OH THE SUSPENSE!
This page came out early!
Blue Sly November 10, 2011, 11:31 PM EST.
Early page update?
And we all know who that is.
Honestly, if I were playing video games with my friend who I hadn’t spoken to properly in two months, I’d tell the person phoning me I’d phone them back later. Regardless of who it was.
Sparkfur November 10, 2011, 11:32 PM EST.
OMG! a phone call. is it going to be Sandy? will Mikes mood change afterwards?
it looks like we’re seeing that Mike needs to have Lucy around just as much as Lucy needs Mike.
sen November 10, 2011, 11:37 PM EST.
Lucy is trying to fix up the relations between them both.
And if one damn call destorys it, It would be too bad to think about.
Vasiliy November 10, 2011, 11:43 PM EST.
Please be a wrong number, we all know it isn’t but please be anyone other than sandy.
At least their making headway on the whole friends thing.
Teeroy766 November 10, 2011, 11:43 PM EST.
I’ll be sooooo happy if Mike introduces Lucy to Sandy, and if they at least TALKED.
Otherwise, GTFO, Sandy.
KiwiKoala November 10, 2011, 11:44 PM EST.
I think I totally got my friend into BCB, but we will wait and see (: I was explaining with fervor how amazingly dynamic and interesting these relationships and characters were and he totally ate it up. :’D
I love where this is going~!! Oh man, poor Lucy, she was finally getting through to him. ): Keep a level head, you two!
Serene Heaven November 10, 2011, 11:49 PM EST.
Sandy’s not just calling, she’s calling to let him know that she’s coming for a visit! Tomorrow!!!
Oh but because of all the snow her flight is cancelled.
revengineer November 10, 2011, 11:56 PM EST.
The cute faces. I cannot stand it! Their faces are just too sweet! Please stay friends, at the very least. PLEASE. My poor little heart is swayed mightily in the tempest of your relationship. While I ship LucyxPaulo, I am not at all averse to LucyxMike, since I did ship them first.
Now to wait for Monday. Sad times. No pressure, I promise, I just love this comic a lot and I’m always excited to see where it’s going. Keep up the great work!!
Something Witty November 10, 2011, 11:56 PM EST.
I love how Mike has electronics with both his girlyfriend and semi ex-person-he-had-a-crush-on …but video games are better…and more fun …but then again he did have that awesome Iphone which can get Angry Birds on it so its about even
Sirius November 11, 2011, 12:02 AM EST.
Lucy looks so much more adorable when she’s truly happy.
Rachel Vang November 11, 2011, 12:02 AM EST.

They both seem so happy, I really hope this continues, maybe even a kiss will happen.

SANDY BREAKUP IMMINENT.
Arkairyn November 11, 2011, 12:30 AM EST.
Stuff just got /real/. I love how the friendship is starting to heal. But then there’s that text… undoubtedly from Sandy.
I hope that he won’t notice it (unlikely, that looked noticeable) or that they’ll be cool with it, somehow.
But this is meant to jerk my emotions around so I have a feeling things are going to take a turn for the worse. ;__;
Lux Aeterna November 11, 2011, 12:32 AM EST.
Sandy breakup, then another Paulo incident? (Maybe she’ll lose her virginity)
Zilla November 11, 2011, 12:32 AM EST.
Ha! Take that Parents! Video Games don’t lead to violence, it creates friendship’s. Which proves my scientific theory is that Video Games -> Friendship -> Magic, so Video Games = Magic.
Darf14 November 11, 2011, 12:38 AM EST.
Annnnnnnd there’s Mike’s girlfriend. Now he’s gonna either:
A- Not answer and continue playing with Lucy (giggity)
B- Answer it, then remember why he was so mad at Lucy. Either way, or what ever happens, it’s gonna be fun to read.

hell even i can tell there’s a lot of sexual tension going on I wouldn’t be surprised if the next page ends with the last panel having Mike trying to steal a kiss from a blushing Lucy
Flicker November 11, 2011, 12:52 AM EST.
Yep. Nothing better to build up a friendship than vicariously destroying your friend in the most vicious manner possible.
edgelesspigeon November 11, 2011, 12:54 AM EST.
Yay! Friendship healing! And I LOVE the sixth panel! It’s just great!
Screamer November 11, 2011, 12:55 AM EST.
D’awwww, Look at that face…
and Sandy interrupts I assume!
Jax November 11, 2011, 12:57 AM EST.
I get a warm fuzzy feeling whenever Mike stops being a gigantic loser.
Whatever happens, I just want everything to work out okay for both of them. They’ve… *sniff* …they’ve just been through so much! *sob sob derp*
No really! I want our little protagonists to get back to happy days already! *emotionally invested like a boss*
So can we count on them both handling the inevitable drama in a more-mature-than-usual way?

Lucy had it coming!
El-MerY November 11, 2011, 1:07 AM EST.
Well, I bet this call is either:
1) Sandy calling to let Mike know she IS coming for Christmas, thus crushing Lucy.
2) Sandy calling to let Mike know she ISN’T coming for Christmas, thus making him take out his anger on Lucy.
Titanium Dragon November 11, 2011, 1:07 AM EST.
Still don’t like you, Mike. But thanks for loosening up.
Jessica U. Ingmann November 11, 2011, 1:08 AM EST.
It was going so well too…. =\\
Come on Mike! Don’t answer it! You have to beat Lucy in the game and finish your report!
He seems guilty.. Either it’s cause:
A) He’s having a blast with a girl who’s not Sandy
B) He’s having a blast with Lucy even though he’s been a douche to her for who knows how long so far
Either way. I <3 it
Nara November 11, 2011, 1:13 AM EST.
At comic panel 6 i was cheering to my self “kiss,kiss,KISS” but then i got to the last panel
fireimonkey November 11, 2011, 1:15 AM EST.
And poor Sandy with her horrible timing calls… inadvertently ruining Lycy’s attempts to make Mike be willing to be civil to her again….
Vega November 11, 2011, 1:18 AM EST.
I have a feeling he may not answer it

Mike: Will you bugger off, woman!? I’m trying to repair the friendships I ruined because of you!!
Fayt November 11, 2011, 2:18 AM EST.
Mike hasn’t even got a ringtone? Dayum.
CharmingRice November 11, 2011, 2:20 AM EST.
Well we know this won’t end with these two being mature about whatever Sandy has to say. Mike will either revert to anger and shun Lucy, or end up depressed and shun Lucy. I still remember Taeshi saying this chapter would be an awful ride, so there isn’t much doubt of what will happen next.
On the other hand, there’s a slight chance of my guess still coming true. Sandy breaks up with Mike due to pressure from her mother, causing Mike to sink deeper into depression. If that were the case and Lucy attempted to help, Mike would either refuse or lash out at her. Not physically of course.
The Observer November 11, 2011, 2:21 AM EST.
$100 on the table betting that Sandy is calling him at this very moment!
Jack November 11, 2011, 2:25 AM EST.
About time u two! God it was like world war 3 the last couple months. Finaly we get the standerd douch mike back. Not the super mega douch mike

They’re finally playing video games and being friendly-ish again…
Wr3h November 11, 2011, 2:43 AM EST.
let make some bet, who win get a cookie either
a. Mike answer the phone and there was sandy, chit chat with him until lucy feels sad and want to go out from the room.
b. Mike smash the phone
c. Paulo calling and say mike is gay

Pokelova November 11, 2011, 3:08 AM EST.
GOD DAMNIT. They’re adorable. Why is all of this (makes vague gesture to all of their drama) happening?!?! They’re so tortured and sweet-
BLTCH I AIN’T DONE SPEAKIN MY MOUTH WORDS YET. KEEP YOUR GOT-DAYMN PATIENCE AND I WILL KINDLY PROSTITUE SLAP YOU WHEN I AM FINISHED.
God I hate Sandy, she’s just such a worthless crap character. Lucy is 400% better. Because she’s actually a person.
Hurr November 11, 2011, 3:12 AM EST.
Yeah. Clearly Sandy on the phone.
One thing, though. Why’s he been laying on his stomach this entire time? Suspicious…
He trying to hide his video-games-and-a-girl *****?
Biblioholic November 11, 2011, 3:12 AM EST.
If find the chances that Sandy says anything about Lucy to mike minimal. The chances that mike mentions Lucy is slightly larger. It is more likly that he will simply spend way to much time on the phone because people can’t seem to understand that there is no polite way to say you don’t wan’t to talk to someone and just get off the phone. I would like to think that he doesn’t ignore the phone. If Lucy is to be his FREIND then talking to he girlfreind while his freind is in the room should be no problem. However, it will be a problem. The big point of the comic directly before now was his stalwart choice of Sancy over Lucy. Now it will be about his inability to choose or else this chapter will accomplish nothing.
bla November 11, 2011, 3:14 AM EST.
The page made my night, seein’ Mike in anything but his Colonel Douche bag uniform, but your comment made the rest of the weekend. I thank you sir.
Coth November 11, 2011, 3:16 AM EST.
NOOO!!! THAT DAMN PHONE! THEY WERE FINALLY GETTING ALONG! TT-TT
But….. at least now we’ll now why Mike was so stressed at Lucy all the time, or in general (and if he’s calls with Sandy were the reason)
Subaru November 11, 2011, 3:19 AM EST.
I FRIKEN KNEW IT!!! Can’t wait till Monday. Things are about to get VERY interesting
NITWITT November 11, 2011, 3:32 AM EST.
I wouldn’t call Sandy a worthless piece of crap character. She doesn’t have a lot of depth as of yet and she seems a little too ideal, but she’s not a horrible character.
Lucy’s done some pretty mean things to Mike and others so I don’t see how she’s 400% better than Sandy. I prefer Lucy, but I don’t hate Sandy with all my heart.
Although her hair creeps me out just a bit. For some reason, Tess’ hair was fine to me, but Sandy’s hair really freaks me out. I don’t even know why.
Anyways, I think it’d be better if you refrained from calling any character here a worthless piece of crap. It isn’t nice to Taeshi at all. That’s actually very insulting to her; to call her work something like that.
It’s fine if you don’t like Sandy, but don’t call her a horrible character just because you’re a LucyxMike fan.

Alas, the buzzing gives off impending doom. I think anyway, at this point I tend to be pessimistic about Mike and Lucy’s relationship

eatedurtaco November 11, 2011, 4:51 AM EST.
I hope they get back together. I love that Bittersweet Candy bowl sold 600 books but i hate the animation for 600 books sold.
MikexLucyfan November 11, 2011, 4:55 AM EST.
This is one of the most exciting moments for me reading this comic. I just hope it’s not going to end the way I think it’s going to end… Because I don’t think the relationship between Mike and Lucy is going to be fixed just like that. I mean, I believe they’ve got some talking to do! You can’t avoid your problems/feelings by playing videogames… But at least it’s a good start.
I have the feeling that Sandy is gonna cause Mike to completely ignore Lucy, until she gets sick of it and just leaves. Maybe Mike won’t even notice she left until he’s off the phone again. But I hope it won’t be as bad as that (or worse!)
Plus, I agree that Sandy is not a ‘crap’ character. Sure, she seems very perfect, but we haven’t really met her, yet. To Mike she is perfect too. But I’ve learned from the long-distance relationships I had, is that people can be so different in real life… (not talking about the freaks or perverts here). So maybe she won’t be as perfect when they first meet after several years.

I thought that buzz came from an alarm clock or something.
Harris012 November 11, 2011, 5:07 AM EST.
If that’s Sandy on the phone I’m gonna punch someone
Haddi November 11, 2011, 5:09 AM EST.
Aaaaand with one simple ringtone, Mike will be back to his usually sour “I hate anyone who’s not Sandy” mood that his sister seems to have observed lately. Please Mike, I just started not hating you again, don’t ruin it now.
Have NO idea what Lucy’s gonna do, but that’s what updates are for.
Shadai November 11, 2011, 5:16 AM EST.
puppy eyes mike!
Also, FRIENDSHOP IS VIDEO GAMES!

Mike’s defenses broke down.
Lucy acts a little better for a little time (except for the thing about throwing controllers at his head, damn she can’t control it), and Mike’s already nice again.
I say, be nice where it’s due, but be harsh when needed.

Edit: Chippies xD serious? great :-D
anonymus November 11, 2011, 6:02 AM EST.
the friendship!!! it has returned!!! im crying tears of joy…
WHATS THIS?! oh nuuu. The phone WHAIIII?!
now Mike’s gonna start hating Lucy again -__-
Kyuuu November 11, 2011, 6:25 AM EST.
If Mike was good friend he wouldnt pick up that phone and if its Sandy then he would tell her that he is busy and go back to trying to beat Lucy in videogames again xD
Kyle November 11, 2011, 6:26 AM EST.
of course sandy had to buzz in at the last panel lol well lets hope things won’t shatter apart
DarkFox November 11, 2011, 6:33 AM EST.
dear gawd, could Sandy pick a more horrible time to call?
*is praying Mike doesn’t turn bitchy again*

The Swimmer November 11, 2011, 7:18 AM EST.
If Sandy is seriously going to try and contact Mike right when he and Lucy are being buddies, I hope to God that Mike doesn’t remember how guilty he feels about Sandy and obnoxiously goes back to being a jerk…
Tickle Monster November 11, 2011, 7:20 AM EST.
Im all reading this page and its going all good, but then I read *BUZZZZZZ*…and here it comes …):
Jay Tea November 11, 2011, 7:33 AM EST.
I am actually so glad these two are reconciling.
haha, this page almost makes me support MikexLucy. I guess we’ll have to see if they both still harbour feelings for eachother or if they’re just gonna be best fwends again :3
Or if something totally horrible will happen and it’s punch punch slap slap…
We’ll know after the phone call! SUSPENSE OH NO
k November 11, 2011, 7:33 AM EST.
I just realized I’m in a similar situation as Lucy… I lost a close friend. I someone I loved. And well, I ended up yearning for a rebound best friend/somewhere else to put my heart. Good luck, Luce.
LikexMucy November 11, 2011, 7:39 AM EST.

I should have a rant defending Mike right now, but I guess need to finish re-reading BCB first.

Come on just when they were really starting to bond and bam calls.
Rozon November 11, 2011, 8:26 AM EST.
..Am I the only one who isn’t getting worked up over the phone ringing? Who knows? Something awesome that we never expected might happen! <3 But in the mean time, I’m really liking how Lucy and Mike seem to be building, even if it may not last very long. Can’t wait for Monday!
Lolly November 11, 2011, 8:35 AM EST.
Though, this could be the perfect opportunity for Lucy to have a bonding moment with Sandy.
Bambalooza November 11, 2011, 8:36 AM EST.
And then they got snowed in and got so busy playing video games and falling in love with each other that they forgot to do their assignment and Mike will hate Lucy again because he feels guilty about cheating on Sandy but at the same time he realizes that it felt right to be with Lucy so he’ll be stuck in a pit of sorrow and confusion as he tries to muster up the courage to break up with Sandy. *passes out from lack of oxygen*
KairaWolf November 11, 2011, 8:39 AM EST.
teeeh cute faceeexxxxxxx @_@
and don’t worry, he will just ignore the phone and continue playing
Shangy November 11, 2011, 8:40 AM EST.
Why does Sandy have to butt in?! Thongs are going smoothly, and all of a sudden some intervening gal butt in into the scene. Hate it when it happens.
Aubi November 11, 2011, 8:43 AM EST.
Aubi, Sandy doesn’t know that Lucy’s there. She just wants to call her boyfriend, that’s not a crime
CriticalQuit November 11, 2011, 8:45 AM EST.
At least he has his phone set to vibrate…not that it helped.
I wonder what the “secret merchandise” is. Talking about merchandise, will we be seeing any more of that bittersweet candy? I wanted to buy some, but they were sold out, and after a while they went of the store entirely. Apparently some of it stayed in stock for so long that it crystallized or something? I doubt that will happen with the amount of readers you have now…

Curse you Sandy!!! They were becoming freinds again.
no one November 11, 2011, 9:03 AM EST.
i totally saw it coming, yet im still sad.. oh so very sad… anyone else think this will turn out bad?
sigh... November 11, 2011, 9:08 AM EST.
I don’t see how even a phone call from Sandy right now will ruin this.
After this bonding moment, at least, I doubt Mike will go back to being hard on Lucy - My theory is that he gets a little down after hanging up and they go back to working in silence.
I certainly hope it doesn’t end in hostility…
Darth GW7 November 11, 2011, 9:14 AM EST.
8D Sandy <3
Don’t get me wrong, I love that they’re being friends again but I love it when Sandy gets even a little bit of comic time. =3
Aquati November 11, 2011, 9:20 AM EST.
lemme guess that’s sandy on the phone? right?
Nolames November 11, 2011, 9:34 AM EST.
It could be a call… or it could be a text message… who knows?… I definitely like panel 6. It definitely shows the awkwardness of the situation. Lucy was the only reason he played games and had so much fun doing so… so I guess that thought struck a chord. Panel 7 and 8 really shows how confused and conflicted Mike is right now….
I honestly hope that he does what is best for himself, Lucy and Sandy… He’s clinging on to this childhood dream and hasn’t even had face to face interaction with Sandy in so long… He hardly knows her (even if he talks for an hour a day or so with her, its nothing compared to the amount of time he has spent with Lucy… He knows Lucy’s persona like the back of his hand… )
It’s gonna be angsty, painful, confusing and conflicting and lots of wondering which way is the ‘right’ way… I reckon there will be lots of swinging back and forth and I truly hope Mike sticks with Lucy… Breaking up as nicely as possible with Sandy and facing the facts together… Sandy seems to sweet to cold shoulder… I sense so much angst and pain for all 3…
Delta November 11, 2011, 9:35 AM EST.
Go…Go away, Sandy.

Noble November 11, 2011, 9:46 AM EST.
Come on guys! i bet Sandy doesn’t know whats going on with Lucy and Mike to be honest i think she wont be mean, she be mature and just take it along.
But for lucy……she might eruppt becouse mike might tell her to get out of the room so he can speak with sandy.
P.s. MIKExLUCY WORKS BETTER THAN MIKExSANDY! >:D
Flaze November 11, 2011, 9:57 AM EST.
Loving the comic right about now… This brief moment of friendship really does give hope for a better scenario
Naturally, tragedy strikes as the phone begins to buzz…
Alex November 11, 2011, 10:01 AM EST.
Their just friends guys!
Sandy and Mike are still together .
(I still really like MikexLucy )
Cece November 11, 2011, 10:03 AM EST.
Gee, Lucy, I gotta give ya more credit. I gotta turn down a notch my jaded skepticism, it’s proving to be somewhat unrealistic.
It seems already apparent that things will turn for the ungainly, like some cosmic conspiracy or mad joke, but we must count this as some note worthy success! This whole scene is filling me with poignant delight!
Lucy sure knows as heck how to get through Mike’s coy but seemingly stonewall defence, which he fashioned entirely in the scheme of douche stone masonry.
I’m a couple-agnostic, and not particularly keen on MikeXLucy, but dagnamnit! This scene is very lopsided. Let it be platonic love! because as far as I can tell that’s no fleeting puppy love (or kitty love ;P). Nor are they in the whimsical state of being ‘in love’. For how can it be? They’ve just been through the wars! They have something much deeper, one that goes far back… What they have between them is that divisible line that marks and joins two opposite halves of a brain. But I’ve heard of brains denying itself. Like mine (uncontrollably drools like a dunce).
Anyway the phone is ringing… and it’ll sure be anti-climatic (and possibly funny) if it’s not you know who. atleast not yet. hehe
Mess November 11, 2011, 10:12 AM EST.
Your art is really starting to amaze me. It’s gets better every week~
But, oh man, if they at least get their friendship back, that’d be amazing.
Satora November 11, 2011, 10:20 AM EST.
Lucy is developing so much as a character! At first she would act very immature around Mike and get mad and now she’s trying to be friendly with him.
Anonymus November 11, 2011, 10:52 AM EST.
Why must we discuss this if mike liked lucy more than sandy he would have just been friends with her but he likes sandy more so yeah nuff said plus this chapter is supposed to be heart grabbing so there shall be little happy pages in it
Blank13 November 11, 2011, 10:53 AM EST.
I can see an angry Mike coming up.
I honestly can’t tell the difference between your old style and your new style.
It’s like they both fit.
Hinochi November 11, 2011, 10:54 AM EST.
Better prediction: Lucy picks up the phone. Sandy and Lucy start an affair.
Anyone who is against Sandy x Lucy shall not be spared.
CharmingRice November 11, 2011, 10:56 AM EST.
yes the sandy X lucy affair shall be sweet and leave mike in as much pain as lucy

Avory November 11, 2011, 11:22 AM EST.
Come on, you pair - be friends again.
Kay November 11, 2011, 11:55 AM EST.
I’d be -amazed- if it wasn’t Sandy on the phone, and for this to be a false alarm to keep us all wetting ourselves with drama until Monday…
The most likely thing (although there’s a pretty good chance of it being subverted) would be for Mike to answer and it end up being Sandy, and then either A) He turns into an ******* again , or B) the power of Video Games allows him to play with Lucy -and- talk to his beloved Sandy.
I’ma go ahead and leave this theory here, but what if Mike checked the phone, saw that it was Sandy…… but decided to let it ring and play another round with Lucy? That could lead to some -epic- drama, possibly even more than Jerk Mike returning…
Sandy X Lucy? Seriously? Is everyone in this fandom capable of being matched up together? Aren’t there -enough- pairings, just within base material?
Also, I just found the emoticons. Cool.

I hope Sandy finds out how Mike has been treating Lucy, I know her and Lucy aren’t best friends of anything, but I can’t imagine she’d appriciate the way Mike has been treating Lucy because of her. Then
Mike gets a stern talking to.
If thats even her.

Taeshi, today is Friday… WHAT IS TAKING YOU SO LONG?!
If it’s because u ran outta ideas then WHY?!
Or is it cuz we r in a different time zone?
I believe ur in Australia? Please correct me if I’m wrong.
Cuz I thought I am close to u, maybe… Maybe u just lost the paper u were supposed to photocopy.. Or maybe ur cat scratched the paper? Or maybe ur dry out of ideas???
All I wann see is what today’s page is, that’s all… That’s really it, I’m being honest, cuz Blast_The_Hedghog is a soldier, a soldier that is thougth to be honest… WHY ON EARTHE DIDN’T U UPLAOD THIS PAGE YET??????!!!!!!
Blast_The_Hedghog November 11, 2011, 3:49 PM EST.
Let’s look on the bright side of things. Maybe if the call’s from Sandy, Mike can finally have a chance to introduce the two?
… Or they’ll just be more drama.
Irenezelle November 11, 2011, 3:50 PM EST.
@Blast_the_Hedgehog: The current page (for Friday) was uploaded about two or three hours early last night. The last panel dialogue should contain “Another round?”
If you don’t see that, try Ctrl + F5, or try this link. If you do, then you should know that that’s the Friday page, uploaded early. =)

DinR November 11, 2011, 6:12 PM EST.
Hmm. For whatever reason, I think that Mike isn’t going to answer the phone and continue playing with Lucy. This is just an assumption, but I have my heart set on that happening.

He secretly wants to like her, it’s like his sister said, he gets stick up his *** whenever he’s not on the phone with Sandy. Oh well. LucyxAugustus/ LucyxPaulo4ever.
Suzume November 11, 2011, 7:33 PM EST.
@minty lime green
Answering your question on the previous page, about the “hippie looking cat” . Yes, he was last seen in “Return,” and that’s when he talked to Lucy and gave her his advice/warning.
Something that’s picked my curiosity; are you and “Minty” the same person, just a short form?
The Swimmer November 11, 2011, 7:37 PM EST.
awwwh, so close… dang it!
Lilnekogrl November 11, 2011, 7:38 PM EST.
I think it’s more fun to think of that vibrating sound, not as a phone call from Sandy, but as an *ahem* “toy” Mike has on his bed. Because Mike is secretly gay.
Tani November 11, 2011, 7:39 PM EST.
Nope. I’m not related to Minty. MintyLimeGreen is my GameFAQs name. I like the colour green. Therefore I am 3 different greens.
Minty is no relation.
Edit: Also I meant did he ever show up after Return. I’m fairly certain that’s the chapter he tells Lucy he’ll be there for her somehow when Mike abandons her.
Minty Lime Green November 11, 2011, 7:43 PM EST.
The phone call seems so ominous that it brings to mind something I’ve been mulling over for a while now: is Sandy is going to die? She is set up almost like a Mary-Sue. (Seriously. She’s the “perfect” girl with a “cutsie” speech impediment. She’s -more- beautiful than the beautiful female lead. The male lead is madly in love with her. She never does anything wrong. Her parents are rich and she’s a model. Etc..) And frankly, everything I’ve read so far suggests that Taeshi is too good of a writer to have a Mary-Sue character. So! That leaves us with some future badstuff involving Sandy. The two options that come most readily to mind are a fall from grace (made more poignant by her previous goodness) or a tragic end (the classic “death of a mockingbird.”) A tragic end would be more interesting, given the way it would affect the characters. So… yeah. It’ll be interesting to see how everything plays out.

lol they almost kssed again.
Akira November 11, 2011, 7:48 PM EST.
Wait it IS a speech impediment? I always assumed she was just saying his name like that on purpose.
Also, I love your post. I can see that happening.
Minty Lime Green November 11, 2011, 7:48 PM EST.
Now that you say that, I’m not sure! lol It could be intentional. But I assumed it wasn’t because she started doing it when she was so young. I just don’t picture “being cutesy” as being at the forefront of an early elementary school child’s mind.
I can see this playing out two ways:
Taeshi has been dropping hints that Lucy might kill herself for quite a while now. She drove the point home recently in the scene at the library (my best guess: just to make sure no one missed the more subtle groundwork she laid earlier). With that in mind, this phone call (or some future event) could drive a wedge between Lucy and Mike again. Lucy, feeling alone and ostracized with the comment about her “uselessness” still fresh in her mind, takes her own life. Mike is left reeling. He is angry. He feels responsible. His friends blame him. He turns to Sandy. Sandy (fall from grace moment) responds by turning on Lucy. (Remember, we aren’t privy to the conversations they’ve been having. We don’t know how Sandy feels about Lucy at this point.) Mike is devastated. In his final coming of age epiphany (at least, for our story) he realizes that he has been making up stories about himself and the people around him (remember what he said at the Christmas Party and what he said to Abby when we found out about Abby’s mom). He resolves to listen and see people for who they are rather than for who he finds it convenient for them to be.
Sandy is killed. (In an auto accident or an airplane crash, maybe?) Since she was perfect and died before having the chance to ever become human, so she becomes a symbol. She is the symbol for all that was good and beautiful and wonderful in Mike’s life. He falls into a deep depression. Many chapters follow.
MiscKitty November 11, 2011, 8:03 PM EST.
Sandy is now replaced by Lucy in Mike’s mind.I mean they are so close to k1$$ing.GET IT OVER WITH AND K1$$ ALREADY!!!
An Angel I am November 11, 2011, 8:25 PM EST.
Ahh that’s a great theory you have. I love it.
Minty Lime Green November 11, 2011, 8:26 PM EST.
Gonna reply to your first comment, because before I finished this one you posted another one! (I had some trouble with the member thing)
Imagine a mixture of both; Sandy meets Mike, revealing “sins” that she committed while they were in there official relationship. Then Mike starts to question whether he really likes her over Lucy, just when Sandy gets run over in a way that’s tied ironically to her love for Mike, and then Mike is left wondering WTF? (just like anyone who reads this )
The Swimmer November 11, 2011, 8:29 PM EST.
Why does everybody think they were gonna kiss?!?! Lucy needs to move on from Mike he’s with Sandy Sandy makes him happy the should be enough for her like augustus said its from a distance but he knows shes smiling
Dawnest November 11, 2011, 8:40 PM EST.
I think Lucy just wants their friendship back and for mike not to hate her. I don’t think she’s really looking for love from him even though she loves him. It’s going to get really awkward and frustrating really quick for Mike and Lucy… I can feel it, not even video games can stop their drama!
Lucy November 11, 2011, 8:48 PM EST.
Mike doesn’t seem very happy at all lately. Not saying it’s because of Sandy, but he’s pretty unhappy and grumpy lately. I don’t think Lucy is trying to hook up with Mike at this point either. I think she’s just trying to mend their broken friendship.
Minty Lime Green November 11, 2011, 8:49 PM EST.
Sandy: Problem Lucy?
Chiba November 11, 2011, 9:03 PM EST.
FFFFFFF. SANDY Y U INTERRUPT MIKE X LUCY TIEMZ? I mean seriously. Look at that thing he’s got going on there! He was happy before you called him ya idiot! (no offense Mike x Sandy shippers, I just like Mike x Lucy. )
I really, really hope Mikie doesn’t answer the phone. Though the chances of that are highly unlikely. Darnit Taeshi why must you make Sandy interfere?! ;n;
WhatisthisIdontEven November 11, 2011, 9:23 PM EST.
The friendship sails on! But wait, I see an obstacle. Gasp. It’s the great Mobile Phone.
Chippies: the greatest chips on earth.
Bearcoon November 11, 2011, 9:28 PM EST.
Somehow I don’t think that Mike even notices the phone buzzing away since he seems to be caught up in the moment (which will lead to an angry outburst at Lucy when he realized he missed his Sandy call of the day).
I’m curious how this moment is going to affect the play that they were given leads for by Sue…
Dellivis November 11, 2011, 9:31 PM EST.
Xenos, I AGREE! They haven’t been able to spend time together in forever! Don’t do a jerkish mood Mike!

I get the feeling it’ll be Sandy, too.
But I almost want to think Mike’s going to ignore it and Sandy’ll be all “D: You ignored meee” and then Mike’ll be like “Heh, yeeeah”

Rachel November 11, 2011, 10:12 PM EST.
Go ahead, let sandy call. Let Mike pick-up. Let him see that Lucy’s ok with that. Let him say “hey, I’m hanging out with a FRIEND right now, lemme call you tomorrow. And then Lucy can move to step two in her devious plot to recapture Mike’s heart.
HyperBallistic November 11, 2011, 10:13 PM EST.

I want Sandy to talk to Lucy, interaction between them would be epic, one would say it might turn into *takes off sun glasses* a catfight

The amount of adorable amazing-ness from this is killing me cause i’ve been in the “remaking friends” situation so many times :’D you make me believe in never-ending friend=-mances!
JackieDaPerson November 11, 2011, 11:54 PM EST.
@MiscKitty, it would be interesting to the story if Sandy dies… but it would be so sad. And it would mean that MikexLucy could become a reality after somehow coping with the extreme angst and depression that Mike would be faced with. If that happens, Lucy would be definitely there the whole way through it trying to console mike.
Lucy killing herself would be even worse than Sandy dying tho imo… Not only will everyone blame Mike… But Mike would believe them as well since there was nothing he could do about it. He is but one person with one heart and to have so much chaos and disappointment to follow him his whole life… And then the story would jump to an epilogue, 3 years into the future or something where Mike is doing like some astrophysics degree or something while sandy continues her career and they try to make things work between them… and there would be no more BCB…

Unless the book sales animation is to be misinterpreted, I believe that Sandy and Mike will be reunited sometime soon - perhaps this call?
VelcrowElbows November 12, 2011, 1:03 AM EST.

Wr3h November 12, 2011, 3:13 AM EST.
I think the phone call’s from Sandy, if Mike avoids it, he will become friends again with Lucy. If he answers it, Lucy’s going into angst and a fight with Mike.
Tastycakez November 12, 2011, 3:23 AM EST.
*buzzzzz* what the… Oh god it’s a Bee! Hit the deck!
PurpleLeaf November 12, 2011, 3:41 AM EST.
Uh oh. We see where this is going. And their friendship was regrowing. It was resisted at first. Them fighting is sure the worst. Even so, maybe something new will happen so long overdue. A relationship rebirth potential is something worth a lot to internally hope for, if nothing more. Sandy, accidentally, has done a lot to hurt Lucy, which means things are the same. Sandy just feels wrong to blame.
I hope you’ve struck a chord, lest you soon be ignored.
You know you had some fun, so don’t say that you’re done.

toXicus November 12, 2011, 9:50 AM EST.
I knew this happened too easily. I don’t blame Sandy at all, but the effect she has on Mike’s behavior towards Lucy is most unfavorable.
The comic’s humor says it won’t be Sandy. But considering how dramatic this chapter is rumored to be, it probably will be her and Mike will remember why he left Lucy alone in the first place. He likes Sandy better and wants her to be the only girl in his life.
I’m crouched with anticipation of Monday’s page.
Mattaki November 12, 2011, 10:08 AM EST.
Now Sandys calling whyyy!

Hm, there is a possibility that someone else than Sandy COULD call him.

I don’t remember who, exactly, but a few people guessed that Sandy would call around this time. I wounder if Mike notices. He might be just to distracted by nostalgia (and possibly love) to notice. Hmm…

GoldenXylophone November 12, 2011, 12:25 PM EST.
I just noticed how amazing the art is in this page. The sixth panel with the shading is just stunning. Before Taeshi would always mention a facial expression or an art related style that, despite any changes, she could not be satisfied with. Looking at this page I’m blown away. The slightest change in the thickness or curve in the eyebrows, the ‘transparent shading’ of the glass’s, the realistic bed covers, even the subtle change from carpet to wall in the background make your devotion to make the best you can indisputable (not that it is, I hope) It looks like you’ve come a long way from those trees in the background in “Hot Pursuit.” I still prefer this style best though:
The Swimmer November 12, 2011, 12:52 PM EST.
I forsee Mike being a jerk to Lucy again after answering the phone. They will then fight and she will leave. Later Mike will recall how much fun they were having and begin to feel bad and start to think things through.
Lunacy November 12, 2011, 2:06 PM EST.
Bet Mike won’t answer the phone over palying some vidja games with Lucy. Which will make him have one upset Sandy. I sure do like seeing them getting along though. Especially without Lucy belittling Mike at every chance like she did before. That’s the one reason I enjoyed them being apart.

So it’s now Mike’s turn to be moody? Apparently many have treated him worse than the other way around. Everyone sides with Lucy. And did anyone notice that we never saw Mike’s side?
Other James November 12, 2011, 4:53 PM EST.
Least he is acting more like he was at the beginning of the comic, but here comes Sandy. But still, kind of amazing how much a jerk he is acting to his friends because of a girl. She may be pretty, but no one is worth throwing your friends and family away.
jmb November 12, 2011, 7:00 PM EST.

dusk November 12, 2011, 7:06 PM EST.
Naw, spicybleachedhead, Mike doesn’t quite fit the typical tsundere mold. He’s not one dimensional enough. hahaha
He’s just being inwardly torn and confused from being indecisive about his conflicting feelings for two girls. Remove Sandy from the equation, doubtless, Mike won’t behave this way towards Lucy. So it’s not an exact role reversal as you might imagine. Not to say Lucy is one dimensional of course, as she has indeed grown and developed as a character in quite a significant extent.

I do believe that if Taeshi ran something like that all as one strip on April Fools Day it would be quite possibly the most amazing April Fools Day webcomic gag ever.
MiscKitty November 12, 2011, 8:19 PM EST.
Them doing friend stuff after so long is pretty heartwarming. Having a favorite couple is nice and all, but I’m just happy the two might be reconciling. Mike smiled more when they hung out, similar to Lucy. They really aren’t a couple to split up if you can avoid it. Though people are always calling someone out about something, there is a reason they’ve been close all these years. The depth of their relationship is far more than what you can decide in a moment. The “love and disaffection” ad may be skewing people’s notice of this. News flash: The provider of disaffection has been primarily Mike for a bit now. Try reading the comic. Ask questions if necessary. We have a forum here, even if I hardly ever go to it. Taeshi and Suitcase, none of this is your fault. I used to be an active forumite on GameFAQs. I’m just not…into forums now.
Long statement was long.
For those watching, look! A rhyme! Not trying very hard this time. Similar to one’s odd yawn, I think I’m tired, so I’m gone.

MewMew237 November 13, 2011, 5:13 AM EST.
The comic book selling animations have a notable theme. Mike is happy to be with Sandy, but he apparently hurts everyone in his bid for her. Knocked down Abbey and worried Daisy over it, ended David’s play, reduced Lucy to tears and made Paulo angry about it, then he got to Sandy. He didn’t look twice doing it either. Almost feels like a simplified summary of how he has taken to behaving, with a notably higher slapstick element in Abbey’s case.
Hoheh November 13, 2011, 5:43 AM EST.
What should happen:
Mike leaves the room for something.
Lucy checks phone.
Mike comes back and arsks what phone said.
Lucks says that Sandy Was coming over but now can’t.
Mike is like FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU for the next 22 chapters.
Or mike is like **** it and brakes up with Sandy.
John andersmith November 13, 2011, 8:53 AM EST.
Leave it to Sandy to ruin the moment.. I reallyreally want to kill her sometimes. I mean, just cuz Mike is with her there’s no reason to be such a dick to Lucy! I guess I shouldn’t blame Sandy because she has no clue what’s going on but I totally have a Yashi view when it comes to interefering in their relationship. If Mike lashes out to Lucy just because Sandy called I’m going to have to burn an effigy of him and Sandy.

I’m curious now. Will it be Sandy’s loving “Maishul”, someone we didn’t know of calling, or David somehow getting around being blocked? My comments do feel more fun when I rhyme to show I’m done.
PS: How do you people put pictures in comments? That’s cool! Amaya does talk to Sue. She just clams up for me and you.
Hoheh November 13, 2011, 2:07 PM EST.
uh oh… can’t do that, it thinks its a picture.
It shows how above of the text box where you type comments, beside the “Show Emoticons”
The url needs to be of that picture ex. “http://s3.amazonaws.com/data.tumblr.com/ tumblr_lth4t4rYX51r4hqsro1_1280.jpg? AWSAccessKeyId=AKIAJ6IHWSU3BX3X7X3Q&Expires=132129 8241&Signature=wOyVhK5uT%2F9uwV6rRB0yqfpMhgw%3D”
Also, interesting observations of the “comics sold” animations.

I am—just so—Okay, lemme just sat it: last panel faces, just WOW.

Ryoushi-kun November 13, 2011, 7:27 PM EST.
Would somebody please blast that phone to OBLIVION?
If it ruins Mike and Lucy’s relationship YET AGAIN, I swear I’m going to feed it to the hounds!
But if it’s just a friend checking in, I’m down with it.

@ The Swimmer
Thank you so much! I appreciate it.

Watch it be the pizza man calling in to tell them he’s gonna be late. I really love it when something like this happens, when the most probable thing is very obvious (Sandy calling) because of all the clues and atmosphere, but then the author/ artist can just put in something completely out of place just to make a joke out of logic. It makes the next page all the more compelling.

It’s nice to see the humour coming back into it.

It’s obviously a wireless, rumble capable, NES controller. Mike switched so he could move around.

Mike…. You be player one and I’ll be player two?

I need to find a way to get my buddy to read this. I swear he overanalyzes everything and can find symbolism in anything…
Dragnite November 13, 2011, 11:26 PM EST.
Symbolism IS in everything.
… Yeah I’m stalking for the page update. T_T
Minty Lime Green November 13, 2011, 11:29 PM EST.
The most symbolic way I see this ending is for Mike to quickly glance at the caller ID, smile, and hit the hang up button. ROUND 2! FIGHT!

mike is really cool when he’s not being a bluh bluh huge jerk.
i’m really glad they’re becoming friends again!
limzee November 13, 2011, 11:52 PM EST.
The symbolism is that when she asks “another round,” it is symbolic for her wanting to ask “are we still friends?” So, yay?
Random Internet Loser November 14, 2011, 8:43 PM EST.
I was like,”She dives…she dives…”
“Play another round?”
“NO!Shoot.She turns away.”
