Mike, honestly. She’s growing up, being mature. You know Sandy upsets her, yet she’s wishing you the best. I don’t understand this at all. The fact he can’t just say thank you.. Ugh. I wish I could get into his brain and understand his thought process.

Comment ID #191946

Sparkfur got it! He guessed Lucy’s reaction (and I did too). Mike’s face in the last panel looks scarier than the one that popped up on the halloween prank. Damn. He’s probably tiered of her always giving that response (yeah, I’m fine. Just glad you’re happy). She did it here, then here, then, here, all when it is obvious she is not fine. (there is probably more examples, just to lazy to find them).

Edit: I almost forgot: SNOW. I promised to yell it out every time I see it in this chapter. It is amazing.

Well Mike, you weren’t happy. At least not that happy. And your own sister pointed it out too.

i have a feeling he might try and provoke Lucy to cry or something. Like he expected her too so he feels her good wishes are a bluff?

Well this is an interesting twist, but I was hoping for this to happen. I wonder if Lucy is being sincere about this though. She could be, or.. not. I’m doing what I said I shouldn’t, but I hope that Lucy is sincere. Then again I’m prepared if Lucy isn’t really like that so that I’m not disappointed. :)

damn mike, if you were so freaking happy you wouldn’t have 1. been a jerkface to everyone that even your family notices 2. have had an angry outburst in class, and 3. just grabbed lucy like you were going to go all caged monkey about to rip off someones face >.>;;;

Comment ID #191970

I’m interpreting this differently… I don’t think Mike’s words are as malicious as they seem, even though he’s got the expression as if he found yaoi of jim and Mr. Noodles. I think he’s trying to say that he was happy BEFORE Sandy and him got together, when it was him, Lucy, and the gang, hanging out, or something like that. …I dunno, I can’t explain it. Hopefully things will be clear next update >

WOAHHH. did he just TOUCH her? LOOK OUT MIKEY, YOU MIGHT BURST INTO FLAMES. |3
I am… not sure how to read this. |c

is he just being pissy or is he saying he was happy before with Lucy? not that I’m saying anything’s gonna happen. definitely don’t mean it that way. I’m just trying to figure out his tone… you guys are cruel with your cliffhangers ;^; <3

also, something about the soft warm pale pink background makes me go back to the old days of the comic… like that warm sentimental feel… not sure if that was purposeful or not |3”

What the heck does mike want from her? I realize she kind of deserves it a LITTLE bit for being like she was before, but she really needs some slack and he’s not giving her an inch. I feel bad for her.. D; He doesn’t have to be nice to her but he doesn’t have to be a total meanface.

Oh, Mike… You may have missed it, but others didn’t miss your bad mood. Good job taking it so well, Lucy. Knew you could do it.

Wow. I don’t think I’ve ever disliked Mike as much as I do now.
I’m really surprised by Lucy’s reaction. I sort of expected her to ragequit, but here she is acting like a normal person. I really hope this doesn’t end horribly.

Convict November 21, 2011, 12:13 AM EST.

Comment ID #191977

Ok, so from the point where lucy confessed i felt like i kinda understood mike’s behavior. Lucy put him in a reall awkward position, having to pick between her and sandy, so he got ****** that she expected him to choose her. But since this chapter, im losing that feeling, as mike’s jerkness gets more and more unreasonable. Thos part crosses the line. Mike: you have not been happy, dont deny it. You act irritable and standoffish to everyone, even people like daisy who have done nothing wrong. You need to suck it up and be a big boy, thougj i admit your actions are not without justification. But lucy is trying her hardest to put that behind you and start anew, lile you two used to be. Sandy bothers her, yet she still is accepting that sandy makes you more happy than she can. So stop being a whiney little bitch and give lucy a chance.

Uhhhh… Mike? You haven’t given anyone except Sandy a reason to believe you were happy.
In fact you’ve kinda been a Dick to everybody that’s not sandy recently.

I thought Lucy took it fairly well considering she might have died inside a little.

Comment ID #191985

Am I the only one who thinks that Mike looks like a creeper on this page? :question:

I’m really hoping that Lucy can show Mike how big of a jerk he’s been in the last couple of chapters. Though the way Mike’s talking, I think that we’re either going to see Mike be oblivious to recent events, or we’re going to get some backstory that’s been overlooked. Either way, it’ll be entertaining to watch. XD

headsortails November 21, 2011, 12:18 AM EST.

Comment ID #191986

maybe he’s mad because she didn’t absolutely flip out… maybe he wanted her to act jealous (like she still likes him) and now that she’s trying to act like it’s not that bad and she’s happy, he’s mad? idk…

“Your talking like I wasn’t happy already”

Well fact is, your conflicting yourself between a woman your in love with and one, who you got over, but know deep down you still may have feelings for. Lucy’s past actions with you Mike may have turned you into an *** and your actions may have made her rather clingy with others, but truth is…you keep up with that attitude and your gonna lose your friends, your once best friend and one day your precious Sandy…Humor me Mike. Me and my Girl really want to see you dig your ditch till your start crying.

Shojobo November 21, 2011, 12:25 AM EST.

Comment ID #192000

Got a feeling the last two panels well be edited with “rape face”. :/

Lucy could’ve worded that better… like “I’m glad there is someone out there that keeps you happy.” (No Taeshi I’m not making a suggestion to the script :P)

Blue Sly November 21, 2011, 12:25 AM EST.

Comment ID #192001

in response to my other comment…he was fine with Lucy after the confession….it was awkward and all but tolerable….up until she started talking to Augustus. Mike always talks about how Lucy “needs” him to cling to, but really I think he kind of needs her too. She was the only close to home person that ever depended on him and though he said he didn’t like it and that that was all she used him for, I think he was able to live with that. He in a way wanted to be needed by her. Sandy needs him to keep her sanity with her modeling stuff but she isn’t actually THERE. Her visit will probably reveal a whole lot.

other than that… Mike, stop being an arse. At least Lucy can try to be civil…that’s a whole lot more than you’ve ever given her credit for.

Man I love this comic. XD

This is the biggest show of maturity and support Lucy has ever attempted! Now if only Mike didn’t know her well enough to see right through it and he could articulate just the slightest bit better!
I mean, 30 seconds ago they were friends. He is displeased with himself and Lucy because his choise of having a girlfriend hurts Lucy.

I like Shojobo’s comment. That guy’s right. If Mike keeps acting like that, he will push everyone away and Samdy will be all he has. And if she leaves him, then he will have nothing and no one will feel sorry for him at all. He’s pretty much digging his own grave too like what he said.

I think she’s being sincere when she says she’s happy for him. Even if it’s painful, she cares for him and would be happy knowing he is happy. (Like what Augustus said earlier this chapter.)

This chapter is an odd one, as it feels as unpredictable as the situation must do to Lucy right now.

Confessing and being rejected is hard, and in the case of Mike - must of been even harder knowing that despite the fact she finally said it - it really came too late for it to matter far as he’s concerned.

I think the big problem is that Mike never got the full story concerning whatever went on with Paulo. Knowing that Lucy ran right into the arms of someone else pretty much days after supposedly confirming her TRU WUV for him likely ****** him off deep down.

Also it can be easy sometimes in long distance relationships to forget there are other people out there besides the girlfriend you talk to on the internet/phone line - so I can kind of understand the grouchyness - though it is rather OTT

don’t know how he expects her to know that he was happy before, since he’s only smiling when she ISN’T around.

everytime she’s around, his ears are lowered, he’s frowning, looking angry, hate-filled, and treating her like ****.

kinda like now.

whatever, i don’t really care much for any of the characters at this point. :/

though, i wish jessica would tell lucy how she feels, just because it would open up some interesting possibilities.

Yeah, sure Lucy’s just trying to cover her own heart break with that comment. Least you could do is be happy she’s not picking yet another fight with ya.

So which is it? Kind words at the risk of being dishonest, or honesty at the risk of quarreling? And no Mike, ya ain’t just getting rid of Lucy, pick one.

Oh, bite me, Mike! She’s just trying to show she can be happy for you. Granted, she could have worded that better, but she’s trying. Then there’s the very likely possibility that she’s not completely sincere, but I’m going to be optimistic since she’s been making an effort to repair your friendship.

I’m sure he’s taking Lucy’s comment as he hasn’t been happy with Sandy before. But gee, Mike, let’s think about this one…well yeah, every time Lucy’s seen him in the last few months he’s looked like he’s getting his lungs pulled out through his nose. He may be be happy when he’s talking to Sandy but when around everyone else? Not so much.

And perhaps that’s the point. From Lucy’s perspective, whenever she’s seen Mike or been in the same room, he’s seemed less than happy (with her, usually) and it’s not like she’s been around him enough to know differently.

But from his, he’s been perfectly happy, even if a lot of what we’ve seen may indicate otherwise. It’s not like he’s been the bouncing ball of friendliness and joy around the rest of the group. And I’m with a lot of other commenters on this one, I don’t think he’s half as happy as he says he is.

I’m anticipating that Lucy’s response will be something along the lines of, “That’s not what I meant!” followed by some awkward explanation. Wednesday can’t come soon enough.

Hmmm…the last panel of the comic is interesting. It looks like Mike’s eyes are tearing up there. A lot of people seem to think this is rage coming on, but I think this is actually time for an admission. My hunch is that Mike is going to tell Lucy that he’s been dealing with split feelings, and that he was distancing himself from Lucy so that he wouldn’t have to deal with them; like they would go away if he just didn’t pay attention to them. He probably wants to be with Lucy, but he’s committed to giving himself a shot with Sandy. And the conflict is coming to a head now.

Just a theory. Usually things are more complicated than we believe them to be, or make them out to be.

It was hinted at earlier that maybe things with Sandy are not going so great. But if that is, in fact true, and Mike has not been happy, that means (in his mind) the relationship has been a waste of time. And if there’s one thing I’ve suspected about Mike, it’s that he kind of has an ego.

Therefore, he was happy before, because otherwise he was wasting his time, and he is too smart and talented to waste his time. Cognitive dissonance, ho!

When they were kids? No, Lucy was a jerk to him until the Acapulco vacation, which took place the previous summer. So, more like over a decade, since they met in preschool. Still, even I’m taken aback by how angry Mike is, and I’m on his side in the Mike-Lucy conflicts. He’s waaaay out of line here, though no doubt we’ll find out why Mike’s so angry soon.

Comment ID #192122

Yeah, this is where Mike becomes f*cking unreasonable. >.>

If this is Mike’s true colors, then I bet Sandy would cut ties with him faster than you can say Marco Polo. I dunno, for some reason, I don’t think that Mike and Sandy would last in the long run anyway. Yes, they’ve been together for quite some time, but when was the last time they saw each other? It was a long time ago, when they were a couple of naive kids who saw twu-luv in each other, and it never really fully grew since distance interfered. They never saw the ugly parts of each other, just the spark with rose-colored glasses. We’ve never seen them in an argument or whatsoever, and I think that when they finally see and talk to each other face to face, certain illusions that they’ve made of each other will come crashing down.
I usually support long-distance relationships, because contrary to popular belief, it CAN last. But in the case of Mike and Sandy, unless they’ve seen different parts about each other that they DON’T like and find unattractive but can still manage to get past that and compromise, then I’ll give them credit.

On to Lucy, I think Mike is being unfair, and thinks that Lucy will never change from that needy brat of before, which in m honest opinion, is unfair because if he could get that stick out from his ***, he could see that she’s making an effort. Especially now that Lucy here expresses goodwill. Yes, the words could have been better, but the sentiment is there that it’s great that Mike is happy (even though it is another girl that is the cause for it). That’s just it, but Mike jumps on her just because of semantics, which to me proves to me that there might be underlying insecurity and how, as much as possible, Mike still continues to want to SEE Lucy in a negative light.

Whoa, sorry for the wall of text. I’ll end it here.

Yeah, so, this chapter has made me a lot less MikeXSandy-approving. If Mike still feels so much for Lucy that he needs to make an effort to hate her to assure himself that he still prefers Sandy (which is what I see), then both of them should just abandon him until he gets his senses back.

Suddenly, I’m very concerned about Lucy. I can’t help but feel like Mike’s going to haul off and smack her or something in about 5 seconds. :(

Raile-
I agree. I support long distance stuff, but not MikexSandy. Mike has made himself to be perfect to her, whereas making honest mistakes and being human like everyone else, you know, BEING INTERESTING, is thrown out the window by the two and they make themselves as cutesy and lovey-dovey as possible.

Thats why I like Lucy more. She makes mistakes. Is INTERESTING and realistic, and maybe more honest, at least as of late… XD

Hmm. If Yashy were here at this moment, I wouldn’t be surprised to hear Lucy cry out, with some sharp severity, “No, please, Mike. Not in front of Yashy.”
I suppose this is the fateful moment that Mike has been waiting for so long; as he’d always seemed to have wanted to speak his sincere and honest heart about them; to do away at once with this growing-wearisome and seemingly interminable charade that had often coloured their odd and curious relationship. The kind of relationship which some people might even hold as dysfunctional.

Whatever follows, I just hope Lucy stays strong. She’s doing very well thus far.

Man, Lucy’s trying so hard. I give her props…. and Mike is just being a jerk. Can’t even begin to describe how badly I’d love to curbstomp his fictional a$$.

Anyway, on a side note, I think I really like the way the new style is going. Pretty flowy. For some reason “hipster” is a word that comes into my mind when I think about the style. Not that I’m saying it is haha. I guess I say that because I haven’t seen many comics done in this kind of style. Nice :D

Lucy: I…I haven’t seen you happy for months…
Mike: Well look harder! You supposedly want to be my best friend, well you should be able to look harder, and SEE MY HAPPINESS! *chuthulu gurgle*

He’s pulling stuff my ex did. Whenever he didn’t get the right reaction, he would beat the person down, and cornered them emotionally until he either got the reaction he wanted, or broke the person’s will. Only when someone stood up to the bullying, and slapped some sense into him, that he got his head out of his *** and kind of saw where someone was coming from.

Lucy needs to be blunt with her words, and hit him in the back of the head with how he’s been a ****-head to her, so of course she wouldn’t know if he’s been happy. It’s a tossup if that actually happens though. She might go about this in the adult way, since she’s actively trying to be an adult. She might yell at him and tell him to go screw himself, cus Sandy sure wont, with that stick up his ***. She might end up breaking down, giving Mike an ego boost that Lucy is still effected by him, and he will then either he will tell her to gtfo, or will try and comfort her.

Mike’s rapidly turned into Lucy’s bully, because he probably feels that it’s justification for all the time’s Lucy’s bullied him. He bullies Lucy because he doesn’t know how to handle his most-likely mixed emotions for the two girls, and so he wants to cut one out by wrecking them in the worst way possible.

It’s like you have two buckets. In one bucket you put all the good things in the world, and you let it age with time; like a wine that you want to age to perfection. In the other bucket is all the trash you don’t want, constantly dumping garbage and crap into it, watching things decay in it, and thinking that something will come out of it. You have these two buckets, and you get used to putting these opposite things into them, and it becomes habit, and you forget to let the good be shaken up every once in a while, and you forget to put something decent into the bad bucket, so that it doesn’t go to waste. At the end of it, if they’re handled recklessly, they’re completely useless to the person causing the damage.

Sandy’s going to come to town, and see that he puts her on a pedistle, and might even down talk those that don’t talk to her in the best way possible, and she’ll probably leave him.

Lucy will finally get tired of taking this enormous amount of crap, without any recognition for her attempting to make things better, and she’ll just up and leave him (once she matures enough to see that he really is bullying her. She doesn’t seem the type to take bullying once she’s strong enough to hold herself up).

And in the end, Mike will have neither of his buckets. Maybe at this point, he will realize that you shouldn’t put someone on a pedistle, and you shouldn’t treat someone constantly at blame. Yes, Lucy did a number on you, but what you’re doing is more damage, and in the long run, it’s going to hurt yourself more than others.


Holy crap, wall of text. .-. Well, anyways, Mike’s being a douche, and is looking for the perfect words from someone who he knows doesn’t know the perfect reaction. I hope he changes his tune when Sandy breaks up with him.

Mike feels so bi-polar =_= Within (I imagine) the last maybe hour Lucy has been there, she made things back to normal with him and got him to be himself again. Then a text from Sandy comes and he becomes rude…then he becomes angry Dx and now its like hes wayyyy too serious over Sandy and him. It’s kinda scary when people become that serious over someone else.. grabbing Lucy… and what Lucy said wasn’t mean, rude, or disrespectful. If Mike keeps this up he’ll just turn into some possesive boyfriend and Sandy really will leave him.

I can’t help but see Lucy’s attempt to make things better with her and Mike as being too little, too late. Mike’s put up with her for over a decade. Taeshi herself called it the “patience of a god”. While Mike really should try to mend bridges with Lucy, and he is being a jerk, a darker side of me is taking vindictive pleasure in Lucy being on the receiving end of the abuse. Lucy’s past behavior has nearly caused me to jump ships for MikexSandy before (just because MikexLucy’s my favorite ship doesn’t mean I can’t appreciate MikexSandy). The rest of me that makes up 90 percent is telling Mike to forgive her already.

{8( <-this would be my face if Mike did that to me too.
… like… what is she supposed to say? That she could really tell how happy he was with the way he was treating her?… In all honestly all she told him was that she liked him… and he got angry…. Lucy was trying to avoid it all together after that. She felt really uncomfortable and sad. She wanted to stay friends.
But Mike… he is analyzing all her movements. He absolutely hates her. He picks apart all the things she says… I just… this isn’t a healthy reaction. There’s some underlying hurt feelings Mike is experiencing I think.
Like he’s mad that she told him now when he liked her back then. Or something… Really I don’t know!
And although Lucy was faking a smile here… what right does that give Mike to be angry with her? What right does he have to get angry with *her* WHEN HIS GIRLFRIEND TEXTS HIM!?!?
What kind of response is that? Does anyone understand that? Really? Because I don’t. I’m not trying to be one sided here I just don’t understand this back and forth conversation. As character what they *want*. What they accomplish by saying these things or reacting this way…

I think Mike’s questioning himself and is mad at Lucy for making him like her. Like in Hunchback of Notre Dame when that creepy guy liked Esmerelda and fantasized about her and was mad at *her* for making him like her. He’s literally blaming someone else for making them feel a certain way when they didn’t. It’s so weird and arrogant. That’s the only explanation I can see right now. Or he’s just… reliving old ****? And keeps blaming her for things and thinking she doesn’t really like him for him? That she only wants him so she’s not alone? … Lucy does have friends. She’s been with them and stuff… I don’t know why Mike thinks he’s that important when all he’s been doing is using her too.

He’s such a spoiled little brat.

This is very well the line that if Mike crosses will make him irredeemable in my eyes. Whatever Lucy did to him is paid back in full, and with compound interest. Now, if Mike does end up taking a swing (or worse) then he will definitely be irredeemable in my eyes, and in the end he will lose everyone. Let us hope otherwise.

Lucy, just stop being his friend so we can get to the part where mike misses u and get that drama out and done with too. Sooner or later Sandy will dump him for being either an *** or the long distance and then Lucy won’t give him the time of day. I can’t wait for that day!

To be fair, Lucy does indeed sound as if she’s implying something. Then again, for the past something days all she’s seen Mike being is… well… unhappy. Maybe she’s hoping that with Sandy around, Mike will be happy 24/7 and finally treat everyone right again. (I say everyone, because he hasn’t been a ball of sunshine to his other friends either, as far as we’ve seen. There was Tess’ party… he seemed annoyed at first, but then happy to celebrate it.

Michael’s reaction seems to be a hint at how he was so very certain she was going to argue with him about this he has forgotten to be glad that she didn’t. Being overly certain of false things often works like that. Remind anyone else of any users? This one can think of some, as recently as a page ago. Character development ignorance messes up one’s understanding of the story, you know.

I honestly want to call it Character Derailment at this point, even though I’ve seen Mike’s desent into *******-ry. For the pretty cool guy who was the butt of various, hilarious, and [insert random word here]arious jokes and was genuinly a joy to be around, it’s just so odd to see him as he is now, being as big a dick as an elephant.

Lucy’s had a lot of issues throughout the series, but this is definitely the page to cite to say that, at least by this point, she is 100% in the right, trying to wish the best for her friend and being nice. Why’s Mike gotta be a total *******. Augustus should kick his ***.

Wait…. anyone else notice that Augustus suddenly started seeming like a non-dick character about the same time that Mike’s status as a total dick became cemented?

some odd feeling in my stomach tells me something isnt right with Sandy. “… talking like i wasnt happy aready.” is a failed mask to cover up the fact that something is wrong between them. because why would someone go from “i remember why we were bestfriends!” to “GET THE HELL OUT OF MY HOUSE.” in one text message saying that Sandy is coming to town. One would think that someone would be happy (shown) and want to share that happiness with others (opposite shown). so we are led to believe either my theory is correct, or Mike is just an ******* (which is a very reasent development in this storyline, remember when him and Lucy used to be so happy together… oh, right… THAT NEVER HAPPENED!!!)

Okay I think I get what Mike is saying this page thanks to a few comments and the author’s comment. So here is what I think of what Mike is talking about; See Mike was /already happy/ when he received that text message from Sandy, he pulled a poker face on Lucy telling her that she needs to leave so she doesn’t see how excited he is about the news which eventually would of made Lucy feel a /lot/ worse. Instead being ever so persistent and nosey Lucy pushed Mike and demanded to know what was going on, even though he said “Don’t ruin this for me, you’re better off leaving” meaning don’t ruin my happiness and it’s best if you leave before you get hurt again. Now she keeps pushing Mike to tell her making it into an argument instead of saying okay, which makes Mike upset not giving him time to celebrate the news, but to once more hurt his best friend’s heart. Onto today’s page despite the fact that we all /know/ Lucy is hurt she pulls a complete 180 and makes it /seem/ like she’s been happy with this all along and didn’t just argue and whine about it a few moments ago.

All in all I think Mike is genuinely happy with Sandy, but he knows his love for Sandy hurts Lucy and because of that he distances himself from her until she gets over it, but it seems to never happen which prolongs the distance between them. Mike pushes Lucy away until she can get over him move on, but she’s forever stuck on him even with great friends like Paulo and Daisy and the rest of the gang. It’s hard to explain what I mean, but that’s the best I got so yea take the brain candy xD

Lucy should just walk away and never look back. Even Augustus treats her better than Mike is currently treating her. I just hope Sandy breaks up with him… And not because I want him with Lucy. No, I changed my mind about that a while ago. But because he deserves it! Deserves it big time.

As I see it, this is becoming a black or white situation. Either Mike truly believes Lucy’s better off getting over him, or he really just doesn’t care anymore. Regardless, it’s fun to watch him consistently pick the worst possible options when dealing with Lucy. Let’s spare her feelings? ‘Course not, let’s continuously alienate her and ignore her obvious attempts at amending their friendship. Maybe that stick up his arse isn’t just sibling rivalvry demanding a quick jab.

imo - the only thing that makes Mike’s behavior make sense (other than him being a complete *******) is if he has some pretty strong feelings for Lucy as well as Sandy and is feeling pulled between the two, combined with guilt for his unfaithful feelings and because he knows he’s hurting Lucy by rejecting her.
He’s pushing Lucy away as hard as he can to prevent himself from having to acknowledge feelings for her.
Probably.

I think I understand what mike’s thinking. Lucy is acting like Sandy didn’t really exist while she was away. Heck, Lucy even confessed her love to Mike as if he were single. But to Mike, this long distance relationship is every bit as meaningful as a real one. Lucy is acting like Sandy is just now coming into existance (a person appearing who will make Mike happy). Mike is saying that he has already been happy in his relationship with her, and that Sandy coming to visit will not make it any more or less real than it already was.
I think?

Okay, Mike, stop overreacting. We get it that you’re not happy because she still likes you even though you don’t like her(and she obviously doesn’t have any right to because YOU don’t anymore lol stupid gurl!). Or is it because she dared to get SAD when you told her no? OH those silly emotions! It’s not like YOU would know anything about them, being such a stupid self-centered ******* who always gets what he wants and doesn’t give a **** about anything or anyone else.
Keep up the good work, *******. This is certainly entertaining and I just can’t wait to see your little perfect *** being handed to you by Alejandro. Or rather, I want to see Sandy dump you so you get to be the one on your knees begging for Lucy to forgive you and continue being your friend. She might be an *** too sometimes, but she’ll never put you through the **** that you’re doing to her right now. Pull your head out of your perfect supermodel girlfriends *** and take a look around. (See this? Why yes, it IS my middle finger!)

Mike was happy, then he was rejected by Lucy, insulted by Lucy, and told to call Sandy by Lucy. Mike, not having enough spine just to sweep Lucy off her feet, maybe a cautious because 6th grade winter kiss failed, did go call Sandy. And then, Mike was happy with Sandy, but he could never be happy about it around his friends. Paulo would haze him, Lucy forced him to not talk about it, Mike couldn’t be himself. Lucy continuously insults him form the time he actually calls Sandy until 10th grade summer. (summer after 9th grade). Which as we know is the confusing moment for Mike, he expected to be insulted by Lucy but was told that she loved him. Mike has been happy, does this happiness mean recently with Sandy, or his past with Lucy? I guess we will find out. And PLEASE, PLEASE community. Why are we talking about maturity! This is bloody 10th grade. It wouldn’t be a drama if they were uber mature. Junior year in college, things drama-related are just the same as they were in 10th, but usually with more on the line.

Comment ID #192246

Well that means one of two things, one being that mike is ****** and denying he was miserable in his distant relationship with Sandy, or two he thought she was meaning that he wasnt happy ever with her.

I think its honestly number two, cause i think his rage is covering up that he still feels for her. If he didn’t give two-***** other than just being friends why would he have such intense emotions and be so angry around her? For another example, for those who remember Mike never really denied that he also had feelings for Lucy all he could say was “no” and “what do you want me to do?”.

Another reason i think its number two is because he grabbed her, its a natural thing to grab at something you want or something trying to slip away. He can see her matureing and moving on, and although his face is covering it up he’s very upset about that. I think deep down inside he realizes that his realtionship with sandy is and never will be close to what he had with Lucy. For example the page when mike got his phone and he was showing his texts to Sandy, and all daisy could comment was thier lack of meaingful conversations ie “i love you” x repeat.

That actually makes a lot of sense. I keep overlooking the fact that he really did like Lucy. Having a boyfriend or girlfriend doesn’t really change how you look at someone especially if it was someone who you were really close with.

It doesn’t change the fact that he upsets me with his attitude, though. I’m honestly hoping for a reform and him being able to become a better person (cat…). He is still maturing, after all.

Yeah, I wouldn’t expect it either.
Actually, I think Mike’s so POed because he feels like he has to choose between Sandy and his best friend. I bet he still cares for Lucy, but he wants to be faithful to Sandy, even though she’s far away. He’s probably going to spill his heart out, saying how much he cares about Lucy but he can’t because of Sandy. Either that or Lucy is going to have her heart shattered once more, go to Paulo for help, and Mike’ll still be a d*ck.

Comment ID #192277

:unsure: I find it a little unsettling that quite a few comments are suggesting (whether in jest or not) that Mike is going to rape her. That just something you don’t throw around willy-nilly or joke about. :(

As for the comic, I think Lucy is trying to be sincere. She’s remembering her conversation with Augustus about the whole “he makes her smile” bit, and even though he’s seeing her smile from a distance knowing she’s happy and smiling is enough. I think Lucy seeing Mike smile while reading that text really clicked into place. She’s trying to be happy knowing Sandy makes him happy, and it’s a sign she’s growing up and becoming more mature.

Mike is just being… Well, a self-centered dick. I’m getting mixed messages from him through this as to why he keeps acting this way. :question: Maybe he still kinda likes Lucy and feels guilty that he’s spending time with her and not Sandy? Or resents the fact that Lucy is around him all the time when Sandy can’t be? Who knows. But I think Mike has a little bit of growing up to do of his own.

First time commenter here :)

So, heres the thing. Everyone crying that Lucy was worshiped for her mean while Mike is getting yelled at? I can say that its different. I get Lucy being “mean” to her friends as a way of teasing them and not getting too close. BUT when it mattered, she was there. She saved her friends from being beat up even though it hurt her more. Maybe she hasn’t been there emotionally all the time, but when it mattered…like now, she was there. Mike, however, is just being a jerk. He isn’t happy and, for some reason, he blames that on Lucy. Not on the fact that his girlfriend is a jillion miles away. This is malicious mean.

To finish up…Mike, stop being a jerk. Seriously. If I were Lucy, I’d get out of there .

I wonder what he is thinking…and what will happen if Sandy ever dies? He will be devastated…and even worse than he was now. I suggest Lucy runs away at this point (should it ever happen).

i hate to say this, but i really hope Sandy sees what Mike’s really like when she visits.
because that’s just awful how he’s treating Lucy.
i don’t care how mad he is or how he wants to “protect her”
he should be OVERJOYED that she’s not bawwing her eyes out over how she loves him and instead is HAPPY about his relationship with Sandy
even if she is keeping her sadness inside, that equals PROGRESS.

but nooo instead Mike pulls this stunt.

You know, I have to agree with you there, Trev. Seriously, I was hoping from the beginning that Mike would just get over Sandy. But now he’s turned into a total douche and is so mean to poor Lucy. He was just fine until he got that text, and now he’s suddenly glaring at her like she just killed Blur or something.

You know, you guys really need to go back and re read this strip. This is EXACTLY how Lucy treated Mike for YEARS and in my opinion, Lucy deserves to be treated like dirt for a while. Mike put up with that same crud for a VERY long time and when he finally broke and told Lucy off, people immediately called him an a-hole. I do think he should get over it, but so should Lucy and just back off until Mike cools off.

My Prediction
1)Lucy Leaves
2)Sandy shows up
3)Sandy sees Mike treat Lucy like crap some time during her stay
4)Sandy leaves mike
Next Chapter
5)Mike realizes how much of an idiot he’s been and tries to patch things up
6)Lucy won’t associate with him at all.

Note that Sandy always tried to include Lucy, and be nice to her, which means she probably wouldn’t much like Mike being the way he is around all his friends.

Lucy just forget about him, you are trying to change for the better and he does nothing but attack…you deserve better!!!!

@Mojojojo
in my opinion, Lucy was never exactly like this.
she was a bit of an a-hole for a while, but i’m going through the whole thing right now and i’m not finding anything that really is as bad as Mike is right now.
she even tried to be better with the whole fighting deal, when she was confessing at least.
but really, even after that, Mike saying her feelings weren’t a “big deal” really set her off, and caused her to go back.
but in my opinion, Mike’s already given her back her “fair share”.

I must admit, Lucy’s response to this is rather…suprising to put it polite. Normally, Lucy would all “AHH WHY MIKE *SOB SOB*” But is more calmer and more optimistic. Yet even so, it doesn’t feel genuine…it feels rigged like an election, and it just seems slightly wooden too. And I’m guessing that Mike can easily see through Lucy’s “deception”

I think allot of people have forgotten Lucy’s talk with Augustus. because now it’s far mote obvious that she’s trying to take a page from his book and just be happy for Mike. The wording was a little off, and it seems like Mike forced himself to take it the wrong way, but some people here are still thinking that she’s forcing BS up to get in good graces with him again.

Jerk_Magic_Inc November 21, 2011, 4:03 PM EST.

Comment ID #192314

Basically, Mike thinks the only way to not have lingering feelings for Lucy is to tell himself that she is the source of all his problems. By doing that he can focus solely on Sandy because Mike is too insecure about Lucy worming her way back into his life. And he’s mad now because he left his guard down and had a moment with Lucy. Because of that he feels guilty and thinks the only way to fix it is to push her away more.

I think Lucy needs to go to someone that Mike can’t possibly get mad at like Daisy and explain the situation. Then maybe Daisy can talk some sense into Mike. But then Abbey would probably hear about it and white knight it up. I’m pretty sure Mike won’t listen to Lucy at this point and needs his other friends to tell him what a jerk he is being to her.

Seichi November 21, 2011, 4:26 PM EST.

Comment ID #192320

I’m pretty sure he likes Lucy…so either he’s doing this for her good or he’s feeling guilty for liking her. My current boyfriend once dumped me, even though he was still in love with me, because he felt he wasn’t good enough for me. He then started to be nasty to me so I could hate him and move on easier, of course this was all just rubbish and he ended up asking for me back and it’s all sorted now. I don’t feel Mike is doing it because of that, but perhaps because he wants to be with Sandy but still has feelings for Lucy, he cares about her, so he feels the only way she can move on from him is by making her hate him?

Or it could be because he feels guilty for having emotions for another girl, so he is pushing her away to save his relationship, because his relationship with Sandy is way more important to him and he doesn’t want anything to potentially ruin it. I had a really close male friend who had feelings for me, so I had to push him away because it was effecting my relationship with my boyfriend.

Or it’s none of those reasons and Mike is just a *******, though I’m hoping theres some complex emotions behind this other then “Mikes a jerk”. He shows mixed expressions which confuse me, so there has to be more behind it then “I hate Lucy now”. I noticed that these feelings started after Abbey was speaking to the audience about people breaking windows? http://www.bittersweetcandybowl.com/c62/p11.html I think he’s trying to help Lucy break her habbits with a bit of tough love, but honestly I disagree with this method, its just cruel.

I think commenter “Ven” hit it on the head. He needs someone other than Lucy to tell him that he HAS been unhappy and that he IS being a jerk for no real reason. Yes, Lucy was dependent of him, but sometimes friends are! Pushing her away won’t make his guilt or unhappiness go away. Now if Lucy would just get with Paulo… 8-)

If I was Lucy, I would’ve just said “That’s good” and then left. No need for extra comments. By the look on his face, she should know to just stop. She needs to give up. He wants nothing to do with her and he’s moved on. It’s time she does the same. They’re just not meant to be friends anymore, by the way Taeshi is writing the story. Poor Lucy. Bad Mike.

MSPA November 21, 2011, 6:19 PM EST.

Comment ID #192357

I can almost understand where Mike is coming from, although it still isn’t really justified or reasonable. Maybe Mike thinks Lucy is implying that he wasn’t happy without her there even though he keeps trying to convince himself that he is? I think he thinks Lucy keeps making herself the most important thing in his life, or something.

But it’s almost like he’s trying to make her do something he can hate her even more for. He automatically assumes the worst, and if she doesn’t live up (down?) to it, he tries to force her to.

My belief is that recently mike has developed a phyicological dependence on the phone relationship with sandy who was already embedded in the back of mikes’ mind. The more virtual contact he had with her obsession for her grew (mike was described as having a stick up his *** after contacting sandy ) and the less important anything else became . It seems to me that he now is becoming protective of his relationship with sandy and as we saw above anyone who interferes is liable to attack (not exactly physical ) as they may taint or corrupt the relationship as it has just been between the two of them without input from anyone else . That’s my summary I may have read too much into it maybe not it’s the wrighter’s creation .

Just as Mike’s about to really let loose, his sister will come to Lucy’s rescue. God knows, -someone- has to and I doubt that Paulo’s in the area.

Perhaps I’m missing something but when has Mike been this way to everyone? I’ve seen him act this way towards Paulo but that’s because their relationship works that way. Otherwise he’s been civil to everyone else from what I can recall.

she coulda just walked out, she coulda stopped pushing the issue when it’s obvious he’s getting ****ed. but NOOOO, she just has to push a bad position, instead of retreating and restrategizing, jeezus Lucy. thank you for multiplying the drama.

Comment ID #192405

Damn I think she’s gonna be like ,
”Mike you know I didn’t mean that-” L is nervous
“BECAUSE I’M SO HAPPY.”
She looks up into his eyes.
“RIDICULOUSLY HAPPY.”
Sadder expression as he brings her closer and tightens his grip upon her shoulders
“I DON’T NEED YOU LUCY. I DON’T” his expression changes to desperation and he betrays himself in the honest rawness of his tone.
Then he kisses her, leaving her in a confused suffocating panic. And he repeats again a little angrier, eyes squinted in a vile but tortured way, “….I don’t need you.”
She grabs her things and gets the hell out of there.
Angsty Mike scene as he puts his hand over his face while she leaves.

So very dramatic. XD That would be so awesome if that happened.

either way i highly doubt he’ll hit her, Thats just silly T_T

I understand Mike being bitter about all the crap Lucy put him through since they were kids with the abuse and the security blanket relationship and all, but GEEZE. At least she’s trying to make up for it now, and if he’s treating her like this as payback, he’s being immature and merely stooping to her level. Mike was always the mature, patient one, but now he’s being a little snot. I know everybody has their breaking point, but… I dunno. Angry Demi is angry, and I guess that’s that.

My bet is that Lucy’ll say something about him seeming angry or upset lately and he’ll use it to have a go at her about how he is happy with his friends etc, but that she and he are not friends. Or maybe just to point out that he doesn’t like her.

I am not one to argue much, and I hate to see people hurting each other but, Mike still has a right to be upset she played him in circles for years (really think about the comic as a whole) she can’t even begin to imagine everything just going back to fine and dandy because she is just now changing her attitude. I hope Lucy really, really, sees the kind of damage she’s done to Mike and then pursues his happiness as he did hers, even when she was upset way back when.

Uh… Mike… You may have been happy whenever you were talking to sandy but when youre not or when you’re around Lucy you’ve got a stick up you’re ***. Yeah she did some damage to you emotionally over the years but good god man she’s sorry and trying to not make it awkward. Grow a pair and chillax. You don’t have to like her but theres no reason to get so god damn hostile. Anyways good luck with sandy’s visit. Hope it doesn’t screw you up any more than you are already.

Getting the impression Mike isn’t actually as happy as he lets on… maybe mad at Lucy for the exact opposite- maybe she’s confused him as to his feelings and now he is having to fight against that and and assure himself of his love for only one person- being a rage monkey at the source of his confusion would probably distract him from his true feelings towards her.

Hmmm, dumb comments filter apparently thinks this is bull so I’ll not bother speculating in future.

But the main thing i see here, Lucy is maturing so much! She is trying to keep a friendship not trying to do anything else with the guy she likes. And her “freak out and panic” thingy she does should have kicked in by now, but look at her! way to go lucy

Wow. So many original comments about a male being on his period when he’s acting emotional.
Clever stuff there, people…

Clever

Stuff.

What I’m getting from the immature comments here is that many of you seem to think that there are two options when a man gets emotional. Either he’s actually a woman in disguise or he’s about to commit rape. The former being used derisively is insulting to everyone involved (including the commenter) and the latter is… Rape. A serious crime. Not a joke. Why is the Internet full of arseholes and idiots?

Guys have emotions and it’s okay to express them. It doesn’t make them a woman and being a woman should not be used as an insult. It also doesn’t mean they’re a rapist. And again, rape is not something to joke about.

So many idiots commenting here… I don’t know why I keep reading the comments…

BJMcG November 22, 2011, 5:44 PM EST.

Comment ID #192492

@BJMcG

I don’t think it’s because they think he’s a woman in disguise. Generally when they say a man is on his period it’s because he’s acting irrational or has taken something to an unnecessary level like a woman would on her period would. however that’s because of hormone balances changing which happens to boys to. They just don’t bleed. it’s been proven that men do go through some sort of cycle similar to a women’s menstrual cycle and that they are prone to be more irritable when it’s at its peak. The difference is that it is not monthly but annually.

Oh wouldn’t that all be peachy keen if it could all end so easily like that? Well it’s not gonna happen. It never WILL happen. And it’s all. Your. Fault. Mike. Well, at least staying with Sandy is your fault. You could have let go, but you decided to keep falling for a girl that lives in California(?) or something, way too far away for you to ever keep a stable relationship with. This has been said so many times.

Anyway, panel 1 is my favorite out of this bunch for effin’ sure. : D And the PINK! It’s AWESOME.

Heh I like Mike. He’s like, Oh god THIS ruse again? hahaha

“You’re acting like I wasn’t happy already.” COME AT ME, BRO.

@minty
The only logical reason is that anything involving rape tends to be a “trigger” for some people. Look that up.
the emotional reason is that it’s a bad thing and all bad things should be taboo(I don’t support that last statment, it’s just the reason).
Cancer jokes, stds, rape, being shot, war, and so forth are all very much not a joke to someone. Then again, everything is very much not a joke to someone.

OOOOO!!!! Dead baby jokes! Oh, dead baby jokes. To a lesser degree, yo moma jokes.

Punch him cause he touched you or because he chose sandy….

Anyways, I’m guessing Lucy is going to overload and explode after this. She seems to have already gotten farther than she usually would have, and she is going to need to go a lot farther for a peaceful outcome…

I think Mike’s on his period. He went from flurting, to happy, to annoyed, to ****** off. Hi hormones are raging! Lol.

Well he is a teenaged male, Ragnarocker. :) When I was his age, I was moody as hell too.

And you are right, people, Lucy is trying to grow as a person and not be so self-absorbed and bitchy. But there is too much history with her and Mike for it to be that easy. It’s not fair, but it’s how it is.

Lucy girl… you need to let Mike be for a long time.

i noticed the past four pages have been ending with either Lucy or Mike having a “what” expression of some kind.

@JAX: I get that, really my problem is that because the joke is repeated so much it ends up that it seems to imply things that the writers don’t mean (I assume they don’t mean that). People don’t read what other commenters have written and so you get about fifty people all making the same joke. It’s just.. moronic. When you’re in a group and someone makes a good joke or a clever call then everyone else proceeds to make the same joke as if they hadn’t heard the others all saying it moments ago it’s just not funny. And when the joke isn’t funny it starts to be serious. And when it’s serious, what they’re saying gets insulting. It’s just stupid. Also I was sleepy and in a funky mood, and reading the same lame rape and period comments over and over just really got on my nerves. It’s annoying to read a great comic and then stupidly drive that out of your own head by reading the comments below it.

I really can’t take this panel seriously because or someone’s fan art of the last panel because it had Mike with a clown nose and him saying honk with serious face while having a clown node on. I always end up laughing.

Lucy gets joy from 2 things, one of them is seeing Mike happy. Why does he find that so hard to believe?

While Mike was used to rejecting girls in Jr. High, I don’t think he ought to have done so with Lucy, he should have let her down easy, rather than treating her like every other “cat in heat.” Even at first glance, she is clearly more of a Bro than a Bra. Seriously, Lucy would rather be friends than nothing at all.
And was Mike really happy without Lucy? sure there is Sandy to talk to on the phone, but just like his sister says,
“he has a stick up his *** whenever he gets off the phone with Sandy” <—- Paraphrased quote
