Man, we gotta stop napping in the afternoon when we have to do comic updates. Sorry. Here you go!
Oh no Mr. Angry face is back.
Matty December 21, 2011, 1:28 AM EST.
Do it Lucy, whatever you did or were doing, DO IT.
Break him like he just broke you. Into itty, bitty, little ****ing pieces.
Sad December 21, 2011, 1:28 AM EST.
oh my gosh xD what is lucy doing
Kyute December 21, 2011, 1:28 AM EST.
That Face fall!!!!! Mike, you worry me so deeply it isn’t even funny anymore
kikimmicoa December 21, 2011, 1:28 AM EST.
And now We wait till Friday to see what happens…. and man……Mike’s getting even more freaky with how he can change moods like that
Vega December 21, 2011, 1:28 AM EST.
Welp, we still have to wait to see what she does. I didn’t see that coming. >3>;
Minnoa December 21, 2011, 1:28 AM EST.
Patience finally paid off……..
Time for bed
Pepe Le Pew December 21, 2011, 1:28 AM EST.
Love it. Mikey’s expressions are just always so lovely. But ohh, why does he have to be so meaaan ;-;

0.o early comments?
I hope Lucy is just standing there, and not using the phone. It would be a world of hurt if she is, even if its innocent like calling her brother/mom to pick her up.
Unfortunately she seems to be doing something, and I just hope it isn’t something that either hurts herself, or perhaps she hopefully has managed to reach her own anger and maybe grab a shred of dignity on her way out rather than having to leave shamed or get kicked out for what everyone else seems to think she is doing.
I hope shes just standing there, holding the trashcan and tells Mike she needs to take out the trash, and then leaves. At least he’d be mildly confused at the different response. 0.o Thats what I’d do anyways.
Mirasia December 21, 2011, 1:28 AM EST.
Lol the face
Crimson December 21, 2011, 1:29 AM EST.
I’ve never been this early to an update before.
And dude, mood shift. Talk about planned. It’s like when people rant and go all bitchy when with their coworkers and then when a customer comes in, out comes the perky service. He stood in front of his door for a few moments just gearing himself up for ******* round 2.

ohh i dont like where this is going already!
Momotaro December 21, 2011, 1:29 AM EST.
Wow, her presence just makes him angry it seems…
Brandon December 21, 2011, 1:29 AM EST.
“Oh right, there was still that b**** I left upstairs. I should go and make sure her heart’s in precisely 6 pieces, cause 5 1/2 just won’t do for me.”
Skygaze December 21, 2011, 1:30 AM EST.
LUCY! YOU HAVE BEEN SPOTTED! SEND THE TEXT NOW!
Chelis December 21, 2011, 1:30 AM EST.
Mike, you are gay. Not because of the way you’re treating Lucy. No one cares how you treat her because she is a dumb **** who had it coming. No. You are so gay for the way you **** your ***** mother; it is terrible. Mike, **** you.
OmoMeowth December 21, 2011, 1:30 AM EST.
I got a bad feeling about this…
ScrabMaster December 21, 2011, 1:30 AM EST.

And wut is that girl doing with my phone?? (angy face)
Serge December 21, 2011, 1:30 AM EST.
run lucy , run!!!!!!!!!
anyone notice that the calindar is off?
the 20th is on friday not wendsday…..hmmmm…… ohhh welllllllllllllllllllllllllll!
theadvebt123 December 21, 2011, 1:31 AM EST.
Heh. All that happiness sure went quickly. Wonder which was the bigger act. His anger or his sudden non-anger. Hm. As expected. Watch him take it the wrong way.
Hoheh December 21, 2011, 1:31 AM EST.
so what now mike you gonna tell her to get the **** out huh all happy an all excited get to the door then become a cold hearted *** again…honestly i would beat your head in the floor…i honestly would as if you ain’t hurt her enough i can see your gonna continue your sick rampage on her
DarkFox December 21, 2011, 1:31 AM EST.
Mike just flips a 180 in mood every time he sees Lucy.
RoseVee December 21, 2011, 1:31 AM EST.
Oh man. Too many cliff hangers.
There’s not even anything to say about this page other than OMINOUS OMINOUS OMINOUS MAISHUL HAAATE.
And also, why does the calendar say 2007? >:?
causticAntilogy December 21, 2011, 1:32 AM EST.
Ho boy, inc shitstorm.
Zo December 21, 2011, 1:32 AM EST.
I gotta wonder what Lucy was doing when he walked in. If she’s just sitting there catatonic he might at least feel sorry for her, but the way the last page set things up, it doesn’t seem like it’ll turn out that way.
Oh well, it’s all speculation at this point. Can’t wait for Friday!
Wolfenrir December 21, 2011, 1:32 AM EST.
Oh Mike, trying to put back on your angryface for Lucy. Not very nice at all.
But no payoff yet! We still don’t know what she did! No, it will be Friday when we find out.
Or maybe monday, with Friday being Mike yelling at her, or sending her out, then finding out what happened.
Titanium Dragon December 21, 2011, 1:33 AM EST.
why is the calendar for the year 2007?
Stormy December 21, 2011, 1:33 AM EST.
ALSO WHY DO YOU HAVE TO TORMENT US WITH PROLONGING THE TENSION TAESHI. WHY WE NOT SEE WHAT LUCY’S DOING YET SFISJIJGH
RoseVee December 21, 2011, 1:33 AM EST.
lucy turns around, exclamation point above her head, deploy cardboard box.
yeah. ill write something witty later, im tired.
curtisimo December 21, 2011, 1:34 AM EST.
im afraid to see what lucy was doing in the next page
i really hope she wasnt telling lucy not to come
maybe she was apologizing, or explaining things to sandy
or maybe shes grabbing a axe to murder mike
i like the latter
yup December 21, 2011, 1:34 AM EST.
Aw, looks like another cliffhanger, oh well. It looks like Lucy might get caught in the act, I can only hope he can stop her before it’s too late…
Lokiallen December 21, 2011, 1:34 AM EST.
he looks like he’s going to murder her
paulosawesome December 21, 2011, 1:35 AM EST.
scrolled down to the last panel and literally exclaimed “Oooh ****!”
Tae, you’re really laying the suspense on thick in this chapter. Goes great with all the drama between these two already, I can’t wait to see how things turn out.
Eevee December 21, 2011, 1:35 AM EST.
@Skygaze: you read my mind.
Lucy better know what the heck she’s doing, or there is no turning back and gaining Mike’s trust again. Mike, stop being an a** and treat her with respect instead of going from “MOMMY MOMMY SANDY’S COMING! O//U//O” to “I’M GONNA BEAT THE HELL OUT OF MY FORMER BEST FRIENDS HEART JUST FOR LAUGHS!! HAHAHAHA O’’O9”
Silversoma December 21, 2011, 1:35 AM EST.
woops, meant sandy, not lucy on line 2; and that was supposed to be “an” before axe
yup December 21, 2011, 1:35 AM EST.
Hey, Taeshi? Do you work on this the entire day? Or does this take a shorter amount of time than it seems? Do you ever get a break? Or is this kind of like something you do as a hobby? Job? ‘Cause you can???
The awesome one December 21, 2011, 1:35 AM EST.
Ugh… Here we go again. DROP THE PHONE AND RUN, LUCY.
Nissie December 21, 2011, 1:35 AM EST.
oh lucy how sad you gor troled by a girl thats not even here
alex December 21, 2011, 1:35 AM EST.
like a hypocrite, wearing many faces to cover up what a monster you really are
Thespianut December 21, 2011, 1:36 AM EST.
Of course we don’t get to see what happens. Now we gotta wait ‘til Friday. Just great. Page looks nice. I know Mike will be mad no matter what Lucy did.
Shunoflegacy December 21, 2011, 1:36 AM EST.
Oh please no more napping! I can’t stand one more page of no words! Lucy send the text asap!! Or finish distroying his presious cell phone! Mike stop being so in to yourself! Rawr!
BunBun December 21, 2011, 1:36 AM EST.
i realy loose track of the time there
Dracke December 21, 2011, 1:37 AM EST.
oh god, oh god, oh god oh god oh god Mike is gonna be so mad at whatever she is doing to his phone! This is gonna kill whatever chance at friendship they left.. I can completely picture Lucy’s, broken-soul filled face in the next comic!
OpalNickle December 21, 2011, 1:37 AM EST.
It’s all cool Taeshi. Well there’s the Mike 180. Time to see what Lucy was up to I guess. Cool page though, I’m kinda liking the lack of dialogue. Your lines are great, I just think this part is better without any talking.
Deuce Moose December 21, 2011, 1:37 AM EST.
omfg i wuz just looking at the character bios and noticed that we MISSED LILY’S BIRTHDAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
theadvebt123 December 21, 2011, 1:37 AM EST.
@Paulosawesome: he always looks like that!
The awesome one December 21, 2011, 1:38 AM EST.
I have a question! What do the gold ribbons in front of some of the commenter’s names mean?
Silversoma December 21, 2011, 1:39 AM EST.
i’d treat her like a queen not a peace of ****
whitefang1 December 21, 2011, 1:40 AM EST.
The true proof of Mike’s cruelty is the way he can act like he has done nothing wrong, and that he fails to care that he has just crushed another person’s spirit and sense of security.
KiwiKoala December 21, 2011, 1:41 AM EST.
This whole chapter has been so dragged out and emotional, but it feels like your doing this so that we really empathize with whats going on and so we don’t just pass it off as another stupid fight. Seriously though, page after page makes me wanna cry a little bit more.
OpalNickle December 21, 2011, 1:42 AM EST.
ARRRGHH i wanted to find out whats going on! …Taeshi… daamn youuuu… im sorry F5 key, i’m going to have to mash you again on friday since i still havent found out what she’s been doing. I dont think i can take much mooooore.
Also, damnit mike stop being such a *****.
Neila078 December 21, 2011, 1:42 AM EST.
Mike: How dare you be in the same spot I left you three minutes ago! I expected you to do a walk of shame right past my mother and siblings.
Lucy: Sorry bro, I was to busy screwing up your relationship with Sandy. By the way, you accidentally sent her a text meant for your other girlfriend…. Aaaaand I may have deleted all of your contacts, but that was an actual accident. Sorry.
-Lucy leaves. Mike picks up his pillow to scream in it.-
Mike: Oh my gaw. It’s filled with puke.
Fuzzball December 21, 2011, 1:43 AM EST.
It’s only 2007 in bcb land? Well then.
WHY SO MUCH SUSPENSE!? We need this whole scene in movie form. It’d be so dramatic and suspenseful and junk.
Nasu December 21, 2011, 1:43 AM EST.
why is does calender say 07? i thought they had the same time as us… =/
apichnmahpocket December 21, 2011, 1:44 AM EST.
i’m glad Mike finally confronted Lucy and set her straight. but I am also glad that Mike is about to get his just desserts for badmouthing Lucy to Sandy.
i have no idea if this is an inflammatory comment and apologize if it is. it was not intended in any way.
Scott Pilgrim December 21, 2011, 1:45 AM EST.
December 2007, so that’s were it all takes place, and I am assuming that Sandy is going to spend Christmas at Mikes since she arrives at the 21st.
Darf14 December 21, 2011, 1:46 AM EST.
If the calendar says 2007 that means they wrote enough to fill 4-5 more years, right? Also, Mike, lawl.
Mrknowsnothing December 21, 2011, 1:46 AM EST.
hopefully lucy texted sandy and ruined mike’s life, then immediately got back in place so he’d be none the wiser.
curses for cliffhangers… they’re like a kick in the teeth!
i wonder what is written on the december 15th square on that calendar?
whatever it is, it has a heart marked on it, if you look at the close-up in panel 1.
Thanatos December 21, 2011, 1:47 AM EST.
-hehehe, oh dear… Lucy what do you think your doing Missy?
-Mike seems really hurt and is trying to put on the tough guy act (mikes faces in front of Halay’s room).
-Why do some people just wanna see more suffering??
-Keep up the good work guys!
8bitpie December 21, 2011, 1:48 AM EST.
AWWWW DAMMET. Friday. Jesus Taeshi you are a cliffhanger genius
Memory Anemone December 21, 2011, 1:48 AM EST.
I bet he sees her holding the phone and begins insulting her again, and then strikes her down.
Then he looks at the phone and sees that she was just calling her mum to pick her up.
Then it turns out LUCY IS DEAD!
Killed by Mike’s own hand!
Then Lucy’s mom arrives and goes all ninja on Mike’s *** and he has to go into hiding.
Mike goes into hiding and becomes a Bounty hunter, and then Sandy arrives on the 21st (it was a fast process). She doesn’t recognise Mike at first, but then decides to be his Bounty hunter secretary, and the two move to minnesota to live in that giant mall they have.
The two get married and raise a brood of warrior children, the oldest of which eventually faces Lucy’s mom who comes back to avenge her daughter.
Lucy’s mom wins, and thus a feud lasting centuries is begun.
InsaneInsomniac December 21, 2011, 1:49 AM EST.
DUN DUN DUUUUUUUN!!!!
Lucy ! Whatever your doing just do it and run for your life!!! Dx
Leen619 December 21, 2011, 1:50 AM EST.
Wonder if Lucy was trying to key in something nice to him. Wonder if he’ll be patient enough to read it if it is. Wonder if the next page confirms or denies the maturity Mike has clearly been missing. Wonder if Mike tries to death glare the poor girl, only to meet her gaze and see sadness, without fear, at his glaring. I wonder how many commentators claim he still does nothing wrong. It’s fine.
Hoheh can say this may display dismay some way Friday… In case you can’t tell I mean the comic we’re reading: BCB. The next will tell us how well taken her thoughts will be. I honestly can’t claim Lucy is at her saddest. Needs more heeee… 2201112210155
Hoheh December 21, 2011, 1:50 AM EST.
Oh no. Lucy, I love you honey, and I’d definitely side with you over Mike, but do NOT escalate this! Just leaves the pieces alone.
TLV December 21, 2011, 1:50 AM EST.
Why, WHY, WHY must there be cliffhangers like this?! Argh! Curse you, CURSE YOU!
Jessica U. Ingmann December 21, 2011, 1:52 AM EST.
Sounds more like she is talking to someone rather than texting them.
Meow December 21, 2011, 1:53 AM EST.
Honestly, I like InsaneInsomniac’s idea…
AndyTheLazySheep December 21, 2011, 1:53 AM EST.
Please, please be texting something nice to her so that Mike will feel like the biggest ******* of all time later. Don’t screw up and be posting something Sandy would find to be out of character for “maishul” and end up getting righteously avoided by all. There would be so much more drama if she posted to Sandy that she was sorry for what happened between her and Mike, and that she hoped Sandy took care of him for her. So much more drama. Omg.
SonicdaShapeshifter December 21, 2011, 1:56 AM EST.
Do it, Lucy! Whatever you’re doing, do it! Teach both Sandy and Mike a lesson! DO IT!!!
PeerPressureLove December 21, 2011, 1:57 AM EST.
I’m hoping that Lucy was messing with Mike’s phone, which makes him angry. Which then in turn makes Mike violent, and then he either gets fallout from that, or realizes what a ******* he is.
Well “don’t stop me now, cause I’m havin’ a good time…” playin in Mike’s head.
Amazing Lagann December 21, 2011, 1:57 AM EST.
*slow, forceful clap*
Blur December 21, 2011, 1:57 AM EST.
Mike/Lucy: Hit him or her over the head then rape his or her body with the cell phone. Then everything will be back to normalllll.
Neow December 21, 2011, 1:58 AM EST.
I bet she just texted Sandy saying, “I love you” or something.
OneLonelyPickle December 21, 2011, 1:58 AM EST.
And here comes Mikes next crazy mood swings. Back to the mad face of no return
random dude December 21, 2011, 1:59 AM EST.
Watch Lucy not be doing anytning and then have mike flip his **** at her this will end badly….
FRIDAY COME FASTERRRRR
Epicosity December 21, 2011, 1:59 AM EST.
Agh, the Suspense!
I bet(like everyone else) that he yells at her and she’s actually not doing anything bad and makes him feel bad…either that or she did something really terrible and stuff.
Dino December 21, 2011, 2:00 AM EST.
I can kinda see Lucy texting something along the lines of “I wish you two the best of luck”
Probably to try and get Mike to not hate her.
Eveco December 21, 2011, 2:02 AM EST.
Wait…This chapter is called December… and Christmas is IN December…
I can tell that something is going to happen that turns everything we’ve seen upside-down when Sandy comes over…
@ OneLonelyPickle: Or texting “I hate you” in retaliation to Mike yelling at her and being a dick and saying that NO ONE even likes her…
Ice Shield December 21, 2011, 2:06 AM EST.
The suspense is killing me!
Jazzie December 21, 2011, 2:07 AM EST.
I’d like Lucy to text Sandy some sort of apology, and see Mike getting mad at her then realising what she wrote after Lucy has left and feeling guilty. I have hope for Lucy….:( do the right thing!
Kite December 21, 2011, 2:12 AM EST.
11:11 PM, Dec 20th here.
Sandy comes… TOMORROW.
Jax December 21, 2011, 2:12 AM EST.
I love how they’re still in 2007!
Ice Shield December 21, 2011, 2:13 AM EST.
A quite suspenseful moment in this quell of emotions, general dislike and ignorance by his sister and little brother at the thought of “stupid sandy coming to visit, when Mike could just be with Lucy (since it seems obvious those two like having Lucy around).
His Mother being the happy parent of being able to see her son in probably happiest mood hes been in a long time.
Mike … personally I can feel the hate and anger and understand what he believes and intends to put the blame completely on Lucy, yet in time he will mostly come to realize the mistake of forsaking the friendship that they once had.. that many may experience in their lives, but few can gain a renewal of friendship to that error. In a sense he is very short-sighted in looking into the future of after sandy leaves, will all still be the same, or is the person he loving keeps in contact with, is still the same as she once was.
Lucy, the maelstrom of emotions that continue to quake and break upon her soul, in a very maddening sense she could possibly become the alter ego of herself, from such an occurrence that is horribly striking her.. will she have the strength to keep herself as is, or will she fall to the temptation of destroying Mike as well, with the usage of a lighted screen and letters….
Temptation, Love, Hate, Anger, and Desire. All very powerful feelings and the most changing of all things.
Fira'tashar December 21, 2011, 2:19 AM EST.
Lucy???????? What are you d!oing!?!?!!?? Stupid mike this is all your fault!
:) December 21, 2011, 2:19 AM EST.
holy crap we are in the past xD
i hope lucy is doing what said @Kite, but the most probably outcome is going to be legen… wait for it (like this friday xD)
Knight-K December 21, 2011, 2:20 AM EST.
I was dreading seeing today’s page. I clicked on the bookmark, and as the page loaded, I closed my eyes, braced myself, counted to three, and opened them. Even more suspense! My anxiety increases even more! Miss Taeshi, you have me at the edge of my seat. I’m in a state that no matter what happens next, I’m going to be floored. I’ll eagerly await Friday.
Redd December 21, 2011, 2:23 AM EST.
Can’t wait for Friday!
cc December 21, 2011, 2:24 AM EST.
Why does it say 2007?
Kimya Dawson December 21, 2011, 2:28 AM EST.
Behold Mike, the future wife beater.
Hinochi December 21, 2011, 2:30 AM EST.
the comic takes place in 2007? SO EVERYTHING IS HAPPENING IN THE PAST? IS BCB ONE GIANT FLASHBACK?
also sandy is visiting in the 21st of december in 2007
so its the fourth anniversary of her visiting today
moo December 21, 2011, 2:32 AM EST.
HOLY SH*T, SHE’S COMING OVER TOMORROW.
This is gonna be intense.

We’re all gonna Feel silly when we find out Lucy is simply calling her mom for a ride.
nale. December 21, 2011, 2:33 AM EST.
the suspense is killing me, i hope it lasts. it’s the only line i could think of with today’s comic. i wonder if anyone will even get the reference.
strider December 21, 2011, 2:33 AM EST.
@Nale I called it then…. (Except I used her brother but…)
Vega December 21, 2011, 2:37 AM EST.
Ah, I see how it is Taeshi. Stack cliffhanger after cliffhanger after cliffhanger right on top of each other. Make it more suspensful when it’s a webcomic, make it more quality a graphic novel when you print it…
You… brilliant writer you!
Arg! I hate you! I love you! I hate the calendar!
Now let Friday come WITHIN THE HOUR! TWO DAYS MUST PASS IN AN HOUR, OR OFF WITH STRIDER’S HEAD!
Where’s that universal remote offa “Click!” when you need it?
Wait… a tuesday christmas… that would be either 1985 (david-esque reference! Guess!)… or… leGASP! 2012!
IT’S A HINT THE COMIC ENDS ON CHRISTMAS NEXT YEAR WITH THE END OF THE WORLD OMAHGAWD!
THEY KNOWS, THEY KNOWS WHEN THE PRECIOUS WILL LEAVES US!
@Curtisimo I don’t gloat. Good game. May next we meet wills in a time where things can actually be said that have not been stated half a dozen times merely the day before.
Abstruse syntax ftw?
Biblioholic December 21, 2011, 2:37 AM EST.
they’re in the year 2007? i didn’t know that. when/if bcb gets to 2010, are you going to make any recession-related changes?
whiskers December 21, 2011, 2:40 AM EST.
mike looks guilty bfore he puts up an angry face
im sure he doesnt mean it…
Madi-san December 21, 2011, 2:42 AM EST.
@whiskers I think you are mistaken.
You see, on leap years (every year evenly divisible by four) we go backward two days of the week. So since christmas is on thursday this year…
BCB christmas is during the year 2012.
And dark forebodings are made.
Biblioholic December 21, 2011, 2:47 AM EST.
I really have to say i’m at awe at how fast Mike changes his moods
RayleneQuinn December 21, 2011, 2:52 AM EST.
Please tell me she didn’t…(Actually hope she did, I wonder what going to happen) ooo, this is so intense!
Aoriki December 21, 2011, 2:54 AM EST.
The suspense is killing! It’s like holding a lit stick of dynamite, and just staring at it. Waiting for it to just explode everywhere with beautiful yet deadly sparks. We know something is coming, but we want to see it specifically. Why must we be cursed with desire to see such things?
Seikyuu December 21, 2011, 2:55 AM EST.
OOOh. It’s so obvious - Mike is putting on a face for Lucy. That would be the “angryface.” He’s /working/ to change himself.
Spladle of Doom December 21, 2011, 2:55 AM EST.
It’s going wherer I think it’s going.
Lunas December 21, 2011, 3:00 AM EST.
Come Friday/Monday, I’m gonna be prepared. I can’t wait to see what Taeshi has in store for us.
SortingItOut December 21, 2011, 3:07 AM EST.
@ Madi-san: While I could see how it may look guilty, it really looks like he’s remembering a sudden bad taste in his mouth that goes by the name “Lucy”…
Anyway…really what makes me mad about this page is Michael’s nerve to come back into his room with that look on his face. At least try to look neutral and tell her to leave, don’t look as aggrivated as you did before. It’s never too late to take a high-road Michael…
But that’s expecting WAAAY too much.
Michael…Lucy too…you’re both idiots. I just wanna walk up behind ‘em both, grab ‘em by the ears and give them each a fierce scolding.
Yaschiri December 21, 2011, 3:07 AM EST.
AlphaMoon December 21, 2011, 3:11 AM EST.
Maybe the sudden change in mood because he heard her talking to someone?

Charlie December 21, 2011, 3:17 AM EST.
Just 4 more pages. Just 4 more pages! Just 4 more pages!!! DX
@Rainey: He remembered Lucy was still in the room so he went back to being pissy McPissPants.
Michael S. December 21, 2011, 3:17 AM EST.
I agree, Mike switched emotions back there just so he would look like the innocent one to his family there while he continues to be angry towards Lucy without them knowing…
AlphaMoon December 21, 2011, 3:26 AM EST.
Panel 5…… I think it says more than the rest…
Mike knows….. now if he’d only accept the reality

I noticed that the calender is in 2007. Gosh I wonder how many days till Sandy comes over Go Lucy! You shouldn’t take this lying down! I can’t wait to see what she did.
Philippines December 21, 2011, 3:40 AM EST.
I think lucy is fapping. Nah kidding. She prob using the phone.

how cold he looked there, god, i think when he grows up, he is going to liik like a normal perfect gui married to a celebrity, all happy and cheerful face, untill he gets into his privae time where he putes on his murder face and kills the president.
keios December 21, 2011, 3:52 AM EST.
I don’t know about you guys, but I would’ve totally took the phone and then climbed out the window.
I wanna know what she’s gonna be doing, because this is really starting to bother me. Why can Taeshi just upload one page a day? All these cliff hangers: They hurt me Dx
All well I guess I’ll just wait :L
EpicGamerGirl December 21, 2011, 3:53 AM EST.
D’oh! Not another cliffhanger! What is she doing with the phone already?!
Adawg December 21, 2011, 3:54 AM EST.
You know if she isnt touching the phone it’d be a surprise and thus cool to see
Blank100 December 21, 2011, 3:59 AM EST.
No. No she did not. Tell me she didn’t. She isn’t, right?
This can only end badly, as it did earlier. Maybe worse. Also like earlier.
Harris012 December 21, 2011, 4:05 AM EST.
Watch her just go back to studying. Or at least something of that sort. What FFC said earlier in the chapter is weighing heavily on my mind.
Fenfir December 21, 2011, 4:16 AM EST.
I really hope that Lucy had not had a chance to do anything yet… But I doubt it… Hopefully it’s not something too bad… Not that Mike doesn’t deserve some of it at this point but still. *Is mad at Mike but rather not see a Cat Fight*
Yume December 21, 2011, 4:18 AM EST.
Well well well, Mr. *********. Come back to do some more damage? Well, then… bring on the hate. BRING - ON - THE ****ING HATE, YOU MOTHER****ER!!!!!!!!!!! Yeah, that’s right pendejo, it’s payback time! Just remember you brought this on yourself, so SUCK IT UP, *******!!!!!!!!!!! You wanna keep treating her like crap, then you can just come on over here and smooch my big ol’ white butt!
Sarge December 21, 2011, 4:18 AM EST.
Hey, doesn’t that sign on the door say HALEYS room. Keep out? Why does the sign on MIKES room say HALEY?!

TAE!! You forgot Michael’s whiskers in the third pannel!
V December 21, 2011, 4:26 AM EST.
Good God, why can’t Mike just be honest without being such a jerk? He could have just as easily said that she intends to continue being friends with him then they need to resolve some issues and figure out how to fix a life-long friendship. He shouldn’t just say, “Screw you, kid, I’m out.” That’s just messed up! Granted, Lucy could have been more considerate earlier, but for HEAVEN’S SAKES she was trying to do it now! Give her a chance and grow up guys!
Knight December 21, 2011, 4:26 AM EST.
I’d hit it.

A. shes tellin sandy what happen or B. telling sandy what great of a guy mike is (as if)
AshuraKauri December 21, 2011, 4:48 AM EST.
I still like Mike I just… dont approve of his current actions.
Also Mike kinda reminds me of a dictator torturer guy hes all sweet around his family and then when he walks in to his victim he slowly composes his anger and WHAM!!! hes the mean torturer guy again.
Dawnest December 21, 2011, 4:57 AM EST.
Mike’s gonna have to cancel his date.
Dusk December 21, 2011, 5:21 AM EST.
The way Mike stared off like that, its like he was searching for his anger on Lucy and then remembered why he was angry. That sly bastered
random dude December 21, 2011, 5:21 AM EST.
I dont know what to think anymore.
Ok, I understand Mike is angry, I understand he ‘hates’ Lucy. Shouting at her was a way to vent his anger.
But he is acting rather selfish. I mean, just because you don’t like someone doesn’t mean you can’t be civil. And he can’t literally hate her either, because they were playing earlier on, just like the good old days. And also she was being nice to him, after all this time of being shut out by him. After this I think he should sit down and think about it, because not all of it was her fault - sure some of it was, but she isn’t entirely to blame.
I doubt that everyone on the table will leave her. Paulo wouldn’t leave Lucy because even though he is with Jasmine he still has a thing for Lucy, and so David might not leave either. Logically, I think Paulo might try to introduce her to his freshman friends so she can have some friends.
Oh and then there’s Sue… She would probably take the logical approach of ‘why leave the table…?’ and then it’d get awkward.
Terri December 21, 2011, 5:32 AM EST.
Annnnd then Taeshi puts off the comic until AFTER Christmas.
I would lol so hard.
Also. I kind of feel the need to do this.

Wrote this, then found a way to make it (or most things) better: YOU ARE NOW READING THIS IN HEATH LEDGER’S JOKER VOICE.
:smirk: Heh…. oh Augustus, you sly basterd… How did I underestimate you?
Tell Lucy to accept it…. Genius. Tell her to be happy for him… Outstanding. Tell her to admire from afar… Brilliant! and that will force them all to do exactly what you’ve wanted them to do all along: Destroy Themselves…..
There’s two ways to destroy a group of people: You could blast them back to the stone age yourself, however, this costs you resources. The better option is to slowly, but surely, turn the forces you face against themselves, and inevitably they will rip themselves apart.
Put on some dark glasses, knead your fingers, get being that desk and stare over your hands at the destruction you have wrought…. you’ve earned it good sir….
…..unless he really is a Heel trying to turn Face, in which case, ignore this post…..
CopicRXXIX December 21, 2011, 5:51 AM EST.
What if Lucy just got up, said “Whaaaaatever”, pushed Mike aside and walked nonchalantly through the doorway…?
That’d be something…
Meiko December 21, 2011, 5:53 AM EST.
Please don’t use terminology like that, you’re just begging me to open a tab of *THAT* wiki.
Wait… It’s the 21st today, does that mean Sandy is here already?
Darth GW7 December 21, 2011, 5:55 AM EST.
I like how Mike is turning into the type of person he just finished laying into Lucy about. Two wrongs don’t make a right, and treating someone crappy just because you think you’re entitled to just makes you worse than the person you’re antagonizing. I’m seriously so sick of Mike.
Chrissi December 21, 2011, 6:02 AM EST.
also, If haven’t noticed, the the calender also says 2007.
So… this is all 4 (nearly 5) years ago?
Bit-small December 21, 2011, 6:08 AM EST.
Okay? So Lucy is gonna get in big trouble now by Mike right? Hmmm… Veronica I must say this post is starting to seem pretty sinister considering what’s happening. I’m still a bit on the confused side, but that will change here soon. This is sure to cause a big discussion at my lunch table. I can only imagine how upset `HE’ will be. Guys at my table “hold on to your butts”. I must say this has been a bit more interesting then Falcon6 Comics, another great webcomic that tells about the story of the hero of Nsider. Though I haven’t read F6 in a while so maybe it’s different.
EmoFox22 December 21, 2011, 6:11 AM EST.
I didn’t think it was possible, but once again, Taeshi has found a way to make ABSOLUTELY NOTHING happen.
Me December 21, 2011, 6:24 AM EST.
Not sure if she did anything or not. It looks like she moved back to where she was standing before he left. She may have, she may not have.

Tudor December 21, 2011, 6:43 AM EST.
(i have to say this for his “off with his head” comment, sorry i can’t help myself)
KHHHHAA…. oh wait that’s not right…..
anyhow, with that bit of abstract (and probably an obscure reference) humor out of the way. Taeshi, i have to agree with biblioholic on this one you can only stretch cliffhangers so far before they get extremely annoying and frustrating for the reader. i know you have a vision in mind but there are better ways to build up the tension without cliffhangers on every page. take Michael Tettraciano, the creator of Dominic Deegan. he uses a cliffhanger every once and a while but he doesn’t do a whole half of a story arc using them. he only uses them at the exact moments where tension is at it’s highest. if you keep using cliffhangers it loses it’s effect, cliffhangers are like the name says, you’re on the edge and want to know if the hero/heroine survives the ordeal then “CUT!” the director calls and the narrator says “tune in to the next installment”. but if they’re done repeatedly they no longer become cliffhangers they just become…..annoying.
sorry for the critique and i do love this comic, but the cliffhangers are starting to wear on mine and apparently a few other reader’s nerves to the point their counting down the pages till the chapter’s over and that’s not a good thing.
strider December 21, 2011, 6:43 AM EST.
It’s a cliffhanger, she HAS to have something in her hand.
Or the twist is that she never moved. That would be nice.
Well, he’s not in a blind rage now. Makes me wonder if he ever was. Now it looks like he calculated every step. If he did, Bravo. He knew her far more than I realised. Not an ounce of regret shows within him.
I’m having a bad opinion about him now. Justification has pretty much gone out the window.
Now, about the chapter. This drama will end by next week, and the character’s will have a page or two to assess the damage:
If nothing happens, and she leaves without incident (Unlikely):
Mike will get ready for Sandy
Lucy will leave to lick her wounds. Somebody will notice some change in her, but if she hides it well, probably no one but FFC or Paulo would notice.
I think she’ll tell her pets at some point or the other, and that’s where my prediction ends. Can’t see any farther than that.
If she checked his phone, but he didn’t see her use it (35% likely):
He’ll ask her to leave. She’ll leave to lick her wounds, like the first prediction.
He’ll get ready for Sandy, and be too happy to notice the position of the phone. And we, the audience will see what it says by the chapter end.
If he catches her with his phone ( 65% likely):
I… can’t say. Too many variables to consider.
One thing I will say though, this drama won’t end anytime soon.
Not by a LONG shot.
Never here December 21, 2011, 6:46 AM EST.
I notice that Mike may be Faking his meanness to protect Lucy from hurting more w/ the whole Sandy situation…. Not sure. Just a guess…
I just hope things get better eventually.
Bunny December 21, 2011, 7:09 AM EST.
abstruse syntax ftw?
curtisimo - one last fancy word
curtisimo December 21, 2011, 7:12 AM EST.
It’s probably 2007, because the story started in 2006 (I believe), and hasn’t moved as fast as real time. I mean, it takes time finishing the pages and chapters! This chapter takes weeks to finish, but it all happened in one day. So it makes perfect sense. Besides, I checked the facts and 21 december was indeed on a friday.
Can’t wait for next friday either!

I’m not trying to be rude, or disrespectfull, but @ Never here, where did you get thoes statistics? I’m just curious thats all, as I rarly come acros people like you, so if you would be so kind as to respond? (I apolagise if it appears we are using this for chat)
Sarahrawr December 21, 2011, 7:28 AM EST.
Lol. So this comic is still in 2007 and just moving to 2008? They’re sophomores now right? And the comic started in their second year of middle school? So was it 2004 in comic date during that time or have they just been in a horribly prolonged 2006-07? This vexes me. On another note, Mike, your about to get a horrible break-up call or text from your girlfriend right when Lucy leaves your room. JK I dunno, maybe. I anticipate the possibility of loss of friends, loss of family (in terms of love), and loss of girlfriend. All you’ll have left is your safe little neighborhood. Hell, even Lucy will be better off than you. Like Augustus said, she has loving friends, family, and a safe, warm home to live in. If things go as badly as conceivably possible, then all you will have a safe, but uncomfortable place to live. Oh, and the person you love will be heart broken and hate you. Hopefully you won’t go loco and try to beat up and/or kill Lucy. Or, maybe none of that will happen…

Oh god… another Cliffhanger…. AHAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHAHAHAH.
*Bangs head on something.
AllJustShadesOfGray December 21, 2011, 7:54 AM EST.
I’ld say Mikes reaction before going back to “angry eyes” mode seems more like he’s simply steeling himself for it, or just remembered that he still needs to somehow get rid of Lucy. Were it anything else (or an actual realization of what he’s been doing to her) I would expect a more extreme reaction, or at least less anger at this point.
Sort of at the point where I kind of want the cliffhangers to end and get to the end of the chapter already. I guess because I don’t really want to see Mike have another round of verbally beating Lucy down. Or finding Lucy couldn’t resist leaving without a nasty parting shot. If we must have more of that, I’ld like to see Lucy get some kind of final word in before this night ends.
Jennytablina December 21, 2011, 7:55 AM EST.
time for another beating?
2tailed_fox December 21, 2011, 7:57 AM EST.
Oh, Lucy, you clever, clever girl you…
You dialed Sandy’s number, didn’t you? You knew Mike was going to come back and be ****** off, and your going to show Sandy Mike’s… Darker side… I suppose.
Hehe… This should be fun…
Zero_Starlight December 21, 2011, 8:04 AM EST.
Its like, hes making it on purpose. Maybe even faking, just to keep Lucy off Sandy when she arrives or whatever. I remember the looks on Mikes face when Lucy went for some sprites. Mike lookes kind of worried/fluttered/waiting-for-something-to-say- maybe. And then when he saw his phone, and saw the message that Sandy was coming, he was so happy, that maybe he didnt want Lucy around to maybe ruin it. Also the text that Mike recieved had a “remember message” in it, to remember Mike that he had to put an end to Lucy. MAYBE ALL THIS IS SANDYS FAULT. ILL CRY.
Maybe Mike isnt that ****** off, and he does all this just for a better future with Sandy, or because she told him to.
Cata :3 December 21, 2011, 8:07 AM EST.
MOG…..(mother of god)……lucy turn around and say …NO..To mike….just like the memes in memebase!!

but its already the 21st why isnt sandy here?
bleep bloop December 21, 2011, 8:10 AM EST.
he actually reverts back to angry on purpose before opening the door. Why? So Lucy still sees how he feels hasn’t changed?
i only hope Lucy was looking through the texts or prob’ly some photos of their past he still might’ve had on the phone.

MationMac December 21, 2011, 8:16 AM EST.
****ing hell mike’s got his angry face on and Lucy’s got her sad face on but all this time I’m thinking where the **** is yashy. I mean my friend asked me yesterday “hey what do you think yash has been doing?” and my response was “who the **** is yashy … Oh **** him. Ah he’s probably insulating some teacher”. And that’s what I did yesterday.
At the end of the chapter it should say 3 years later.
Fluttershy December 21, 2011, 8:19 AM EST.
I hope Lucy dials Sandy and leaves the phone on.
Please, please call Sandy and leave the phone on. And completely take whatever verbal beating Mike is going to give you afterward.
Let her hear what kind of monster Maishul can be.
Tickle Monster December 21, 2011, 8:24 AM EST.
Gawd, Mike. You really like being bipolar, don’tcha?? -_-
Kristy December 21, 2011, 8:28 AM EST.
nooo, it’s still the 14th (rough guess) in the comic. they’re still on the same day.
@the calendar commenters,
why are you freaking out about it being 2007 in the comic? i’m much more impressed with taeshi’s attention to detail on those two panels. she got the exact day placement exactly correct for the 2007 calenday year. she could’ve just did a close up of a panel of the comic and did a scribbled date just for that scene. but she didn’t, she actually took the time to look up a 2007 calendar and get it right in the comic.
but yes to close this out, yes it is 2007 IN THE COMIC. this comic isn’t following our dateline because 1 chapter = 1 hour/1 day/1 month in the comic universe. are you actually surprised? i swear i’m not plugging, but dominic deegan pokes fun at itself for the fact that a story arc’s timeline is always shorter when compared to real world time. for instance one story had the heroes go on a journey that lasted only 4 hours, but the story had been stretched over 4 months and they joked about this fact. it’s just a rule of comic space and time vs real world space and time. if the comic was following our timeline they would’ve already graduated from high school by this point and time.
strider December 21, 2011, 8:34 AM EST.
Kristy; I knew someone who is bipolar, and this isn’t bipolar. This is just being really moody.
Though that said, I’m not sure if Mike’s lack of a distinct reaction in the last panel is a sign that Lucy hasn’t actually done anything yet, or that Mike just hasn’t realised it at the moment.
Blaze December 21, 2011, 8:39 AM EST.
It almost looks as if Mike has to check himself whenever he goes around Lucy, like he’s doing it on purpose; putting on an act, and it’s not just because of her. Or maybe it’s just my imagination..

Freddyz December 21, 2011, 8:57 AM EST.
Lucy! Read the text! Show us!
Send the text! Make Sandy hate Mike!
Run! Dodge! Do a barrel roll!
This should be a video game.
Beyatchart December 21, 2011, 9:01 AM EST.
Just estimating. I have no formula.
I was hoping for the unlikely scenario to happen, if only to end this cliffhanger on a cliffhanger
That would just bring them even closer. She doesn’t like Lucy, so hearing him talk down to her (again) would be a plus.
Never here December 21, 2011, 9:08 AM EST.
What I’m thinking and what happened on this page:
Mike is all happy and writes down with his mom Sandy’s name on the day she’ll come. Mike goes back to his room, and gets mad because Lucy is still there, doing something. I think she’s looking at his phone maybe.
Chocolatte December 21, 2011, 9:11 AM EST.
Oh Lucy, you got caught playing Angry Birds!
Rob64 December 21, 2011, 9:20 AM EST.
I’m calling off our relationship. I’m in love with the other girl, the one who gives me love taps……… and love bumps………. and love scrapes…….. and love head trauma
Huh? December 21, 2011, 9:25 AM EST.
I looked a little closer at the calender…
December 2007. WTF.
BitterSweetCandyBowl December 21, 2011, 9:29 AM EST.
Okay… Mike is just showing us how bi-polar he is… ANGRY… Goo goo gaa gaa… Happy… ANGRY!!!!
Mike… I dunno if Sandy would have the same oppinion of you if she seen just how you bounce around and definately wouldn’t see you in the same light if she seen what you did to Lucy… and it’s your own fault for leaving her in your room alone ><
Really the root of alot of this is probably in Sandy’s way of handling the situation… “Overly concerned” and wasn’t really keyed in on the situation as she didn’t even remember who Lucy was. Heck you can’t know someone’s faults or problems that made them into what they are if you can’t even remember their name. Then, like many have said before, Lucy was getting better… I think that’s all out the window now. I just hope she doesn’t start pushing everyone away after this.
Glass December 21, 2011, 9:35 AM EST.

Thomas December 21, 2011, 9:57 AM EST.
I would be impressed if Lucy just simply dials Sandy’s number as Mike comes back in… That way Sandy would hear Mike going off at Lucy and saying more hurtful stuff without realising Sandy is there.
((tired bridgey makes no sense))
Bridgeotto December 21, 2011, 10:11 AM EST.
I know all teenagers have mood swings (I got them myself) but what Mike does is just dickish. Lucy is part of his life. You can’t throw away your past.

Dinosaurgirl December 21, 2011, 10:50 AM EST.
Something tells me… she just called Sandy and is on the phone with her.
Wow! Perhaps a little girl-to-girl conversation is what they needed, so that Lucy could tell her everything and get Sandy’s opinion of what just happened.
There just went Mike’s happiness if Lucy did call Sandy.
Charvale December 21, 2011, 10:53 AM EST.
Yeah, so did anyone else notice that today is the 21st of december also? Sandy is coming today! (okay four years ago but TODAY!!!)
David December 21, 2011, 10:53 AM EST.
What i want to see is Lucy managing to call sandy in the time that mike left the room and turn it to speaker… and wait for mike to comeback and go apeshit crazy at lucy and do something really stupid… and have sandy hear all of it.
That would be b-e-a-utiful.
Delta December 21, 2011, 10:55 AM EST.
Awwww Mike’s a lil momma’s boy :3
Sandra December 21, 2011, 11:09 AM EST.
Methinks (mehopes?) she’s just talking to Sandy, or maybe she just wanted to ask someone to come and get her. It’s probably a little desperate to think she’s not just using texting to pretend she’s Mike in order to ruin their relationship, but I’m still hoping that at least one of them is going to be (relatively) reasonable. Besides, if you still believed a relationship with someone could be salvaged, what would be the first thing you did? Something tells me it wouldn’t be ruining yet another of that someone’s relationships right the hell in front of that person. Of course, she might think it’s already too far gone for that, and just wants as much payback as possible before she’s gone for good. I hope not though.
LucyxMike…for now. Startin’ to think maybe she deserves better.

I agree with a lot of you guys and girls about the way Mike has been treating Lucy and i think its cuz Mike is whipped to h*** by Sandy. I miss the old Mike the one i cared about but now if i knew Lucy and heard what Mike did i would so hit him in the face intil he realize what he had just done and how he lost all his friends just for one single girl. I would never give up my friends for just one girl cuz then what would happen if things didnt work out its not like they will forgive me after leaving them for one girl and its hard to make friends that were there through elementary and middle school and know almost everything about you. Mikes gotta learn that girlfriends come and go but true friends are for life not the other way around.

Oh man, I can’t wait for the 21st of December in the BCB world. (Drools a little. Wipes it off.) Now, what have you done Lucy?!?
KillerCobraZ117 December 21, 2011, 11:46 AM EST.
That bipolar change from ‘uber ****ing happy’ to ‘God, I still have to deal with her and get her the **** out of my house’ is ******* me off. You said what you felt like you needed to say, now ****ing be polite or something for once, Mike.
Lucy, I hope you’re not doing anything too drastic.
Krystique December 21, 2011, 11:49 AM EST.
I don’t think she is talking to Sandy, actually. She seemed so regretful and sad and seemed like she realized what she did wrong. She wouldn’t go crying to Sandy blaming it on Mike if she knew Mike was right/if she was regretful.
I think she is reading but not sending.
Hayli December 21, 2011, 11:51 AM EST.
“Oh god, I’m so happy, this is gonna be the greatest month ever! Wait, I think I was supposed to be mad… oh right, Lucy’s still here. Grr”
Shiloh December 21, 2011, 11:53 AM EST.
Maybe Lucy will walk past Mike’s mom looking depressed and Mike’s mom will accuse Mike of being a jerk because of Sandy. It sounds like a typical thing with him according to his sister.
KairaWolf December 21, 2011, 11:59 AM EST.
Anyone else notice momma-mike is a bit squinty-tard eyed?
Must be because their family is all Imbred.
Davey December 21, 2011, 12:01 PM EST.
Still loving how many people are misusing the term “bipolar.”
Anyway, I really just want to know what Lucy did with his phone. Did she send a text or was she only reading the text Mike received? Who knows! Stay tuned until Friday for the next cliffhanger!
Naraka December 21, 2011, 12:04 PM EST.
She’s obviously texting sandy to tell her not to come or otherwise attempting to break the relationship off.
Aethrys December 21, 2011, 12:04 PM EST.
Mike, does your mother know you’re being a dick to your childhood friend?

Scott Nishida December 21, 2011, 12:18 PM EST.
Dude, Mike, you have to forgive her and move on. You’re with Sandy now, so move on…please?
Drakara December 21, 2011, 12:22 PM EST.
I have a hunch:
Lucy will have texted sandy, declaring that mike hates her/using her/cheating on her. (Using mike’s phone, as she was looking at a few days back.) Thereby Sandy won’t go, and Mike will be ruined, and apologize to Lucy! Nobody wins!
Altchase December 21, 2011, 12:25 PM EST.
Okay I need to get this off my chest has anyone noticed that Daisy used to have the same mindset as Sandy does now. She used to believe that Lucy wasn’t a good friend and didn’t like her all that much. Yes it may have had to with her liking Mike but her reaction is still almost identical to Sandy’s. Mike’s answer to Daisy was more calm and thought out because it was true. Lucy is complicated and only he seems to get it and she only shows her vulnerable side to him most of the time. And Lucy has proven to him that she truly cares, in her own way of course.
But with Sandy he automatically demonizes Lucy and shuns her because Sandy says she doesn’t like her. I’ll give it to Sandy that she wasn’t around Lucy and Mike much to see their relationship so it makes sense that she would jump to that conclusion. But Mike’s reaction only backs up what Abby said about him. He is quicker to help those he has a romantic interest in before anyone else. Originally I thought Mike had learned the from the first this happened but obviously not. I feel like he needs another intervention from someone. (Also Mike if your so ****** off at Lucy for supposedly being a pathetic, horrible friend, why are you okay with PAULO? You know the person who sent an angry mob of girls after you when you were suspected of cheating, just to tick you off. And has a whole list of offenses against you that he does because he just wants to tick you off.)
Menou December 21, 2011, 12:26 PM EST.

hellowrld December 21, 2011, 12:42 PM EST.
Anyone else notice that their calender is out of date?
Love Lucy right now. Left a present in his trash can, and now is using his phone.
Mike fans, if your screamin’ at Lucy, you shouldn’t be. He could’ve been alot nicer with what he said. Instead of breaking her heart, he could’ve just helped teach her not to use violence (as she was never taught it was unacceptable.)
He could’ve still been friends with her, but Sandy is like a drug (or the alcohol chocolates….). She clouds his sense of right and wrong, and his only focus is to make her happy. I swear, if Sandy asked her ‘Maishul” to murder his family and all of his friends and blame it on Lucy, he would do it without another thought!
I personally am not a LucyXMike shipper, or a MikeXSandy shipper. I am not for Lucy and Mike to be a couple. I just want them to stay friends.
chickbabe208 December 21, 2011, 12:48 PM EST.
And don’t forget how in Unrequited pretty much EVERYONE (except David but he was just being David) got upset at Mike because of what he did to Lucy. And Sue even tells Lucy not to worry because Mike isn’t her only friend. I don’t think Mike will have quite as much support as he thinks he will. And about his being okay with Paulo, he never really said he was, just that he expected Paulo to leave the table Lucy was at because Mike expected him to follow Daisy if she left rather than stay with Lucy. If all else fails though, I expect that Sue for sure will stay, and she’ll have McCain with her even if she’s the only one who doesn’t tell him to shut it.
RubberBandBall December 21, 2011, 12:51 PM EST.
She has his phone doesn’t she? and wow, now I know that it is 2007, that was a great year, and I always thought this was present time because you put it on today’s date, well, now I know that it’s actually 2007 YAY!
CTS4Kouhei December 21, 2011, 12:51 PM EST.
Wait….. 2007 so what is taeshi gonna do a 4years later thing?
Catboyn December 21, 2011, 12:53 PM EST.
Does she even know Lucy is there? If she does I wonder how she is going to feel how her son has been treating the poor little girl. I mean really! Tell her you hate her then leave her in your room to sulk and expect nothing to happen except that she better understand that you hate her and that she is such a horrible person for being alive and you threaten that she will be alone for the rest of her life. Such a jerk. Sandy only said that because she didn’t understand how Lucy shows affection. You never explained it to Sandy, how do you expect her to understand right off the bat? She didn’t even remember her from elementary school. Mike, whatever happens next, it is either karma, God warned you, you getting what you deserved or the flying spaghetti monster is watching you .
Timni December 21, 2011, 12:55 PM EST.
O i so hope she has his phone so she can break him like he broke her
umm only 2007 man that makes me feel old
Mista R December 21, 2011, 1:00 PM EST.
@Menou Your post gives me thought…. who was Sandy’s best friend before she started spending her time exclusively with Mike? Daisy.
Oh imagine the conversations the two will inevitably have when Sandy returns and re-meets her old best friend Daisy!
You wanna break someone? Daisy can do that easily, and I bet she won’t ever realize it. Mike is Sandy’s porcelain hero, so imagine what happen when she hears about all the “heroic” things he’s been up to lately. Imagine what will happen, when she sees the REAL “Maishul”?
You see, doubt and anguish, as you know, are a lot like gravity…. all they need is a little push
CopicRXXIX December 21, 2011, 1:06 PM EST.
I don’t think she has the phone. And I really hope Mike accidentally knocks over that trash can.
Emily December 21, 2011, 1:08 PM EST.
….The comic takes place in 2007?
Lyraiz December 21, 2011, 1:09 PM EST.
I think people are giving Mike to much hate, and Lucy and sandy to little. It was time mike was able to stand up for himself, and Lucy has been a complete bitch, and expects thinks just to return to normal at her whim. If she has done something like Answering Sandy’s SMS, tat is purely evil, there is no thought behind such a act than revenge and it is unacceptable. Sandy should not have reacted to Mike talking about Lucy as she did, but Mike is not at fault here. Yes He hurt Lucy a lot, but that was becoming unavoidable, due to the Lucy acted and the way Sandy handled it. Most of what he said needed to be said and while it could have been said in a better way. A good choice of words are are to produce in such a situation, bot due to their age, and due to the fact that most likely,you won’t say something about the subject unless you are angry, and anger clouds the mind. All in all, Mike did fairly ok Lucy did not, therefore I hold with mike in this case, though neither he nor Lucy are my favourite characters of this comic.
SourSaltyCandybox December 21, 2011, 1:10 PM EST.
Mike is so cute sometimes.
LUCY, YOU ——-!
Arkairyn December 21, 2011, 1:17 PM EST.

da puppy December 21, 2011, 1:23 PM EST.
okay two things,
@naraka this has already been explained by myself and other posters on this site, it is the correct term. since bipolar disorder is an umbrella term that includes manic depressive disorder and other similar disorders.
@chickbabe208, stop trying to be flame bait, a converter, or a necro. the mike supporters have been relatively quite this page. i myself haven’t started a fight because the argument has gone beyond beating a dead horse. it’s been beaten, chewed up from every angle, shat whole, burnt and thrown to the sea for others to feast on. long story short the argument is over, mike supporters are still gonna support mike, a few lucy/mike supporters have changed sides and the lucy supporters are gonna support lucy end of story.
make that three things cause this is really wearing on my nerves.
@everyone else (you know which ones i’m talking to), this story is taking place in THEIR present. god, please don’t let this turn into another “is this a flashback?” segment. This page is in THEIR present not OURS. their universe exist 4 years behind ours at this point, easy as that. Really, is it that hard to understand that their universe isn’t going to be on the same timing as ours. it’s not like you have to have a degree in quantum physics to figure it out. it’s not like it’s inception (yes i am aware that’s a movie and this is a comic) where you have to reread/rewatch it a hundred times to make heads or tails of it.
seriously some of these comments sound to me like
“what it’s in 2007? NOOOOOOO!!” *head explodes from overthinking*
strider December 21, 2011, 1:24 PM EST.

Lol he’s looking at his watch
IDog December 21, 2011, 2:19 PM EST.
oh my god, OVER9000 has a good point (i’m actually not being sarcastic) let’s just hope that’s not the case in this slightly parallel universe because that would mean they’re still dealing with president bush cat (yeah try reading that and not having an immature giggle, i know i couldn’t) is still in office and royally screwing everyone over. but then again it could be a parallel where at the very least bush never “won” (i still raise a BS flag every time i hear that bush won the office everyone knows he got jebediah to fix the vote, i mean come on, it wasn’t a coincidence the winning factor state happened to be the same state his cousin, brother or whatever inbred relation was governor of) presidency or at best (please god) was never born.
strider December 21, 2011, 2:39 PM EST.
NO LUCY! NO! ****. I hate this suspence, a super cliff hanger after another, omfg I can’t wait to see what happens. I hope Lucy isn’t doing anything mean D; And for all of you who think getting back at him is right, who is the foolest, the fool, or the food who follows it? Revenge and getting back at someone are useless ideas that only make the suffering of EVERYONE longer. it is best to be the one to stop the cycle, even if Mike had killed someone.

No it just means that Sandy is going to use a time machine to visit them from the future on that day and they want to keep track of when it happened, unless it already happened and they just werent aware or this is a flash back and everybody is trapped in it. INCEPTION

PokeDrawer December 21, 2011, 6:33 PM EST.
I’m amused by how he doesn’t even want her to see him happy, so has to change gears to the hate machine before she can accidentally share. Folks might boo about Sandy poisoning his mind against Lucy, but I think they’re only half right. Then again, he’s probably just overcompensating. He was okay with just being friends with Lucy, but since Sandy dun like, he’s gotta get the pitchforks and torches. So, hey, congrats, man. You’ve gone from one end of the spectrum to the other, and are still some chick’s personal Renfield. *golf clap*

Freidrich von Wolfegang December 21, 2011, 6:58 PM EST.
Why do so many people think Sandy is a demon? She overreacted a bit at first, but it wasn’t just a tap on the shoulder, Lucy was physically harming Mike. Sure, when she hit him and no one was hurt, fine, but he was constantly injured because of it and no, that is not alright.
Besides, Sandy was saying he shouldn’t allow Lucy to hurt him, not to abandon her entirely, she just didn’t want Mike constantly being hurt by his supposed friend. Lucy shouldn’t have been beating him, and Mike shouldn’t have gone catatonic in response, but Sandy’s response was not inappropriate.
The point is, nothing is as cut and dry as everyone makes it. Maybe people should actually consider that before they make their final judgment on someone.

@strider (waaaay up there) I disagree about the cliffhangers. They’re annoying NOW, but… well…
You’re thinking solely about the now. She’ll be thinking about how it’ll be read in a year or so from now in book format. Go back to the beginning of the chapter and read the chapter as a whole up to now and imagine it flowing on as well as it has. It’s quite a good quality chapter. It’ll be an exquisite quality of a book.
I was merely expressing my momentary opinions. Truly this is the way I would do it if I had talent as an artist rather than an author. Hell, this is the way most good authors and artists and directors and screenplay writers make it. Suspense and speculation can make a decent product brilliant.

While it’s true that cliffhangers are good conventions in things like that, and in webcomics, I just wish it didn’t take so long to see how the next 5 seconds are going to play out. It’s fun, to speculate on the events just beyond our sight, but the problem is Taeshi oftentimes makes each comic too amazing to want to wait a full two days for a new slice of the chapter. There was a point in time where I swore off BCB for a month or two to let the story build up so i could read in a straight line, no suspense. You know what happened then? Lucy told Mike she loved him, and taught me my lesson. If you miss anything in this comic, YOU MISS EVERYTHING IN THIS COMIC!

Aura L. Fox December 21, 2011, 9:00 PM EST.
Mike makes me so mad. < he treats Lucy like crap, totally destroying her, and THEN he has the gal to go and skip down to his mom like freaking nothing happened and tell her about dumb Sandy who thinks mispronoucing someones name is cool/cute. THEN he has the audacity to switch his dumb two face around to treat Lucy bad again. Even if she is texting Sandy mean stuff, Mike asked for it, being a total tool and loser. Mike needs to get a reality check on who’s really the evil selfish jerk with a transparent twoface in his relationship with Lucy.
OH! And P.S., I’m pretty sure he’s still wearing The friggin’ scarf LUCY gave him. If he is, he’s twice the jerk. How can he say she’s completely selfish and unfair. Ugh he’s just so irratating!
Jninja13 December 21, 2011, 9:25 PM EST.
She’s just doing something she will regret quite a lot later on. But apparently Mike’s long gone to his own dream world and won’t wake up until Sandy’s dead. Maybe he’ll just go poof! and forget all about it once he sees Sandy again.

That’s it. *takes out a grenade launcher* It’s time to end the Witch’s life once and for all! Bring me that Sandy and I’ll make sure she never says another ‘Maishul’ again!
Erm, now that THAT’S over with. Mike, I really think you should either curl up and perish or get back together with Lucy, like you were supposed to. Your choice, gray cat, and choose wisely.
Now, on more neutral things.. Great comic! The drama is so intense and amazing. Good job, as usual!

She’s probably just reading the text message. Whatever it was, it made Mike do a 180, I think she has the right to know what it was.
I hope i t ends up to be nothing too bad. I actually really like Sandy, she’s done nothing wrong really. Mike is the one over doing it and I hope Lucy can pull herself together soon.
Jade December 21, 2011, 10:16 PM EST.
This is darnitmike with the BCB weather. Forecasts this week point to Lucy reading Sandy’s text messages to Mike tomorrow, following Monday’s shower of sick, followed by speculated realization by Lucy that Mike is just an ******* (hopefully).

Its kinda freaky how violent people are getting about this.

CREEPY FAN FIC YEI (hope this doesnt get ereased.)
As Mike left the room crazy to tell his mom about Sandy’s temporal arrival next week, Lucy laid shocked knelt in the carpet floor, almost unconcious of what was going on by the time. She slightly moved her head downwards in sign of defeat and miserablity. She though she had nothing to lose now. Everybody apparently hated her, and will ever do. Lucy slightly looked up, with her pale, fainted, light-blue eyes, full of pain, she looked at Mike’s phone lying alone in his green bed. Lucy hesitated for a moment, and then tried reaching out for the phone, but she started to feel awfully sick, dizzy and nauseaus. She was about to throw up, but she quickly moved herself to a dump container behind a desk, that was luckily near her, and easy to reach out. Lucy threw up there, trying to let out all the bad words, meanings, harmful thoughts and maybe a horrible future. She almost fainted there, but she had to focused and get the phone. She tried standingup, but didn’t have the strenght. Lucy wanted to throw herself to the ground and rest, sleep. The exaustion has caused her too much damage, like if she had been shot or something. But the phone… the phone was so close, yet too far away. That phone was the only escape she had. The only end for what had happened that night. Lucy took a deep breath, and creeped to the bed. Everything was blurry by the time. Finally, she reached out for it, and struggled to press the numbers in the screen to make the call. The call. She didn’t even spoke the first words out when Mike suddenly entered the room. He saw Lucy with his phone on her paws. Mike thought the worse. Rage jumped off his eyes as he ran up to Lucy and snapped the phone out of hers and punched her on the face almost blind by his anger. Mike’s phone flew on the air and then mildly bumped itslef in the ground. While poor Lucy had tripped back when she recieved the punch, and had crashed into the side of the bed, that lead to a horrible cracking noise. She ended on the floor as well as the phone, except that a bright.red liquid lyed behind Lucy’s head, and her miserable eyes were wide open as for the surprise she had when Mike arrived. Mike saw the blood creeping out Lucy’s apparently dead body. He screamed horrified. What had he done? He never ever would’ve make any hurt to anybody! He ran off the room desperate, and didnt notice the phone was still making sounds. The sounds that came out of the phone were of an adult woman, and where asking for Lucy.
“Mom, please come here to pick me up, fast…”, where Lucy’s last words before Mike beat her. She wanted to put an end to that nights suffering, just by letting go.

luvercandy December 21, 2011, 11:10 PM EST.
I sense potential for massive vindictiveness from Lucy. Hopefully she’ll be mature enough not to act on it, but with the way she’s feeling right now… Eeeeeeep.
I shall await the next update with roughly equal amounts of anticipation and dread.
spudwalt December 21, 2011, 11:11 PM EST.
I;m being honest. Some of the comments are just silly. And it’s not on purpose. Bad show.
Hoheh December 21, 2011, 11:15 PM EST.
Lucy is probably just calling for someone to pick her up and take her home.
Lolly December 21, 2011, 11:18 PM EST.
Yandere is a Japanese term for a person who is initially very loving and gentle before their devotion becomes destructive in nature, often through violence. The term is derived from the words yan (ヤン) meaning a mental or emotional illness and dere dere (デレデレ) meaning to show affection. Yandere characters are mentally unstable, often using extreme violence as an outlet for their emotions.
Sounds familiar!? Dun dun DUUUUNNNN.
D(r)agon88 December 21, 2011, 11:19 PM EST.
Lucy is going to do something weird. But text Sandy? What would that accomplish? Sending a hate message would upset Sandy at first but Mike’d text right after that saying it wasn’t him. There would be no point in doing that. But… what could she be doing?… I’m very curious. This hurts to see. Sorry Lucy. I’m not even going to be mad at Mike anymore, I could honestly care less about him. I don’t need to put energy into hating him that’s how little he means to me. All I see when I look at him now is disappointment. <:(
I don’t care what Mike does after this arc, I know I won’t ever like him again. This was wrong. In my opinion, and now he’s worth just about nothing. just go be happy with Sandy, leave the group to her. And Lucy’ll probably go through another **** arc.
That one bitch December 21, 2011, 11:25 PM EST.
Now, what do you think would happen if Sandy overheard round 2 of Mike tearing down Lucy?
So far, all Sandy has seen is Mike’s sweet side, would she still want to visit after hearing how unsweet he can be?
BoringInfoGuy December 21, 2011, 11:26 PM EST.
now I’m all sad and crying, I don’t why, but I am?… Maybe it’s cause Mike a frickin retarded dick! “I HATE YOU!” You know some insensitive jerk would say that. If he really wanted to ruin Lucy’s life, if he really hated her, why didn’t he say that in the first place? Why’d he go be “friends” with her? Why’d he pull on this whole charade? He’s the one at fault here! It’s his fault Lucy’s like this! I love this comic to much….
EmberGemz December 21, 2011, 11:28 PM EST.
Miscommunication? “Maishul I don’t like this girl…” She doesn’t exactly know what’s going on… Also if I was Lucy, I would’ve been like “Okay then. Have fun with that!”
EmberGemz December 21, 2011, 11:37 PM EST.
The worst thing Lucy could do is mess up Mike’s phone. Maybe snap it in half and stomp on it abit? That way Mike would have no more texting/talking time with her precious, am I right?
Blackstar117 December 21, 2011, 11:41 PM EST.
Mike you’re about to feel the wrath of a Scorpio. Probably the one sign you never want to **** over. They’re the most passionate of all the zodiac no question. It’s hard for them to forgive and forget. They are both sides of the extremes. Love selflessly and fiercely, but have a bitter, horrific anger dwelling within them. But that’s what makes them so alluring. Vengeance is practically written in their DNA. A foolish, selfish Leo wouldn’t even understand the turmoil raging inside her. Your pride is blinding you. You believe you’re morals and scruples are right and everything else is wrong. He probably just wants the power back.
Leos: Vanity, stubbornness, melodrama, loyalty, pride, generosity, self-satisfaction, philanthropy, warmth, immodesty, promiscuity, narcissism
sounds pretty familiar huh?
That one bitch December 21, 2011, 11:49 PM EST.
Okay, at first I thought she might text Sandy, appeal to her. Then I realized - her mind is so full of **** because she believes it all to be true. She’s afraid that Mike is right.
Otherwise there’s no reason for her to be like this.
If she believes that there’s no fault on her part, she would just walk away, but she doesn’t. Some part of her thinks it’s all true. And it probably is. I can’t even remember the early comics anymore, so I can’t tally Mike’s injuries.
Then again, injuring your friends, even playfully, was a part of MY childhood. Hell, we’d fight if we wanted to get something out, and we’d be better for it.
There’s nothing she can do. She can’t text her. She just has to sit there and wait. Maybe she’ll ‘leave the table’ on her own.
Although I do feel Mike probably is a little optimistic with his evaluation of everyone else’s affection for Lucy.
Grim December 21, 2011, 11:54 PM EST.
You must be blind Mike. Of course you love Sandy, but don’t you see that you’re love for her is hurting someone whom you love (IN THE PAST) and loves you too. No matter what you do, you’ll stay in the same far away distance type of love. You may not be alone, but when Sandy is back, you will spend most of the time with her, forgetting your friends. When she leaves, you will approach to them and cry to them. What a serious bullsh**!
Anonymousx101 December 21, 2011, 11:55 PM EST.
while the overuse of cliffhangers is maddening, this page is brilliant, showing the transition of Mikes feelings as he comes back to deal with Lucy. He’s a bit of a jerk though
Can’t wait to see what happens next

@ Anonymousx101 that is so true
Korpaen December 22, 2011, 12:02 AM EST.
I like to imagine it playing out like this
Lucy has phone in hand.
Mike charges across the room screaming “What the, *expletive deleted* do you think your doing” slapping the phone from her hand.
Lucy shrinking back “I just called home for a ride. I didn’t want to intrude on your family”
Mike stares at her surprised by the fairly innocent explanation before the both look down to the phone a spiderweb crack down it’s LCD after it hit the ground hard.
I think it would be much better if mike was the one to actually break the phone. he’d still blame lucy but it would fit better I think
TGH December 22, 2011, 12:15 AM EST.
I wonder what happened… What it was that really made Mike realize all this about Lucy… re reading the very first chapter, you wouldn’t think there was a problem with them… but
marizella December 22, 2011, 12:15 AM EST.
I don’t like mike anymore I wish no harm upon his physical being. That being said. CRUSH HIS PRIDE LUCY AND MAKE HIM FEEL WORTHLESS LIKE HE DID YOU. No harm though.
Kai Lione December 22, 2011, 12:19 AM EST.
If she’s doing what I think she’s doing, she’s just lost even the slightest twist of fate that could make Mike freinds with her again…. Possibly even doom her freindships with the others.

Annoyed December 22, 2011, 1:24 AM EST.
Mike is starting to strike me as very odd. Mostly because he can change his mood so quickly, it’s kind of scary. I dunno, with Lucy, she’s always been seen as emotionally unstable, but Mike might be too. Just by how quickly he goes from one emotion to another.
Or maybe that’s just the new him or something. But it’s kind of weird that, things between him and Lucy, their friends never thought it was horrible how they used to act, but Sandy does. I would think maybe since she’s not actually there, plays a big role in her thinking, but who knows.
Don’t think Sandy is a bitch or anything, can’t really think much of a character I haven’t seen a whole lot of development from. So far might just be she’s just really concerned and thinks its worse then it is, or maybe she’s somewhat jealous, or her friends never do anything like that so her view is different, or she’s just kind of greedy and wants him to only have her on his mind. I dunno.
Lucy could be doing a number of things. Just staring, texting something to Sandy trying to explain herself, calling herself a ride home, just actually sitting there still in shock. Not knowing is part of the fun of waiting for a new page.
And since Christmas is so soon, I’m guessing maybe that’s why it’s gonna update Monday instead. Anyway, Merry Christmas to everyone. Hopefully these holidays are good to each an every one of you

@biblioholic, oookay, i guess i misinterpreted your comment. but i still think she’s overusing the cliffhanger plot device throughout the majority of this chapter. it’s just about pacing, when you keep using cliffhangers it’s just build build build stop build build build stop rinse and repeat, by the end you just want the chapter to end. in the example i was talking about earlier, you have a rise of tension in the page followed by a slight drop in said tension so the readers don’t start getting frustrated and start thinking “just get it over with already.” but in hindsight maybe i should’ve used megatokyo for that example, since fred gallagher does a good rising tension without over frustrating the reader and get’s them wanting to keep reading to see where the story goes rather than just wanting the arc over with. the other thing is in those examples is that the writers aren’t really concerned with how it’ll look in book form.
@derp, hey now, that’s a dead horse i don’t mind beating. sorry but i hate bush, i swear he’s mentally retarded and how he ever became president is beyond me. i guess their are more rednecks in our country than i realized.
strider December 22, 2011, 4:33 AM EST.
While I’m not doubting that Mike is really ****** at Lucy, I just had a though.
Remember how Mike’s eyes went from happy and his cheeks from blushy to sligthly terrified looking when he first received Sandy’s text?
And now here he is pausing to get mad again?
Maybe He’s making himself mad? Maybe Sandy;s Text says something along the lined of “I’m coming to visit you, but you better have nothing to do with Lucy, or I won’t be there/we’re through/whatevs.
Maybe Lucy is reading that right now.
That would be interesting
Emilie December 22, 2011, 4:45 AM EST.
Politics in a comic about cats… reasonable enough
On topic, this chapter was tense before and as ‘strider’ stated before, it’s gotten to the point where all I want if for it to end so I can not have to think about it. The arts great, the stories great, but it’s stressed to the point of where I just want the next chapter
CameronLux December 22, 2011, 5:24 AM EST.
actually i do live in the states and the fact is that bush didn’t win the election. Al Gore had won the presidency, but “coincidentally” there was a call that not all the votes in florida had been tallied and then there was a call for a recount. oh let’s not forget that Jeb Bush, George’s brother, just “happened” to be the governor of florida, coincidence doesn’t stretch that far. so if people believe that Al Gore wasn’t cheated out of legitimate victory, i got a bridge to sell them.
long story short George Bush should have never been president in the first place. he won out of treachery and deception (much like his presidential term if you listen to the theories on 9/11) not because he was charismatic.
on a side note, this whole conversation started because of my comment about a what if scenario about what other aspects of this parallel universe 2007 are the same as our universe, for those of you who were wondering why we’re talking about politics.

Personally I like the idea someone had earlier that she dial up Sandy and leave the phone to catch what Mike says to her next.
Though doubtful that’ll happen and that she just read his text messages and depressed herself more.

@strider Bush and Obama are of the same cut, despite one being republican and one being a democrat. They both called for change: they both take it in the wrong direction. The way I see it, Bush was a tempermental fool who started a war that we could not afford. Equally, Obama is a sycophant fool who cannot strike a fair compromise for his life.
We need better leadership. Whatever leadership we have, it doesn’t matter what “party” it is, it just has to be UNITED. It’s not the executive branch’s fault, it’s the legislative branch.
Pick your senators CAREFULLY this coming year. It’s the SENATORS you need to focus on.
Anyway, in this universe what the government is doing doesn’t matter because since when do teenage lives revolve around anything but teens and drama between them? Perhaps Taeshi might slip in some poster to mock your focus on the unimportant details, but that’s as far as anything even smelling slightly of politics will be taken, of course excluding anything that involves Abbey and the people in the ASB or whatever they call the student body representatives.
Biblioholic December 22, 2011, 8:34 AM EST.
@biblioholic, well it started as just a what if scenario. honestly it really has nothing to do with the story at hand. i’m just getting tired of, *gasp* cliffhangers. so after OVER9000 mentioned bin laden cat i started wondering about what other aspects of their world are the same and which would be different since, as i said, it is a slightly parallel universe as our own.
as for our leaders, i hate bush because his entire term was nothing but bad things, can you name one time he did something good for our country and i have no opinion one way or the other with obama since honestly he really hasn’t done anything good or bad. he’s freaking neutral, but honestly i’m not surprised because it doesn’t matter anymore since all politicians are freaking tools to corporations.

honestly the PPACA is not a bad idea, IF DONE CORRECTLY. the original plan was going to loosen the insurance companies iron grip on the citizens ability to get cared for all together. but they got their greedy little mitts on the politicians so the original plan couldn’t be passed. that why we now have this abomination of legislature, since the only way to pass it was to give some kickbacks to the insurance companies. seriously insurance is like dealing with the F-ing mafia. anyhow long story short, obama’s not to blame for what it became, his original idea was good. the ones at fault are the senators who took kickbacks (read bribes) to make sure our countries dependency on a enslaving health care system wasn’t threatened.
honestly i don’t think he has done anything that could rate him as a good or bad president. seriously his whole presidency has been more a case of the house and congress cockblocking anything that could possibly be good or bad from him. you can’t judge a president if he isn’t allowed to do anything. actually these years should be used as a case study into why we need to update our system of politics. because why do we even have a president if he isn’t allowed to make any presidential decisions. so… yeah that’s my opinion on the subject.

~ wow i need to mark down the dates of the new comics!!!
luvercandy December 22, 2011, 3:29 PM EST.
lol @ how many people can’t get over that it’s 2007 in the BCB universe but seriously, it doesn’t matter and it’s a good idea if Taeshi wants it to run parallel to our own lives and include major events (which are hard to add if the comic is meant to be current our time)

@luvercandy: It is easy to tell. The square above the 21st would be the 14th so the one to the left of it would be the 13th. In the about page it says Tess’s birthday is the 13th. Therefore, we can conclude that it is Tess’s birthday that is marked there simply because we don’t know of anyone else having a birthday on that day.

calender says 2007.
could the INTIRE COMIC be one huge flashback, how i met your mother style?

SPOILER ALERT I GUESS?:

The comic actually started in 2006, and I’m pretty sure at least 2 years have gone by so far in comic time. Possibly even so many as 4 years.
Rain December 22, 2011, 6:37 PM EST.
Oh how the tide turns, I am all for Mike still, he definitely did the right thing harshness and all, but oh the fun page turny-ness of the upcoming pages, GO LUCY, while my heart breaks for you Mike! Oh let the massive fighting to ensue for a comic year turn into even deeper feelings of LOVE! LucyXMike!
CDC-The reader December 22, 2011, 8:00 PM EST.
Mike comes in …
Yay broken phone!
Adrienne December 22, 2011, 8:41 PM EST.
@CDC-The reader: I’m not sure what your interpretation of love is, but I don’t think love can come after the **** Mike just pulled. All that hatred and belittling with him screaming “I hate you” TWICE to her face. That’s some mentally scarring **** right there. And you still think they can fall in love in the end?
After this, I think Mike has ultimately effed up any chance of rekindling what they once had. Lucy is now in a state of pure depression with no caring of her well being. You can just tell by the look in her eyes. Everything’s been shattered and now what’s left is an empty void. Also Mike has no idea what the hell he’s talking about. If any one of the characters find out what happened, everything’s going to backlash drastically on Mike. Paulo I’m sure will kick his *** for what Mike did, Daisy will loathe him, Abbey will agree with Daisy, Tess may very well come to Lucy’s aid, Jasmine will side with Paulo and Lucy as well, Sue and Amaya will be mad at Mike as well. Quite frankly, It’s kinda odd how Mike believes everyone will quickly disregard Lucy by him just simply moving to another lunch table. Lucy certainly isn’t the center of attention, but that doesn’t mean just because he hates her the world does too.
Of course I could be just spouting nonsense since I’m not the writer. God Taeshi’s made a wonderful story here.
Michael S. December 22, 2011, 8:53 PM EST.
am i just crazy or did mike momentarily look sad before he walked in?
holly December 22, 2011, 8:57 PM EST.
You know those phone messages between Mike and Sandy we saw earlier? Anybody else think she could be listening to those? I’m pretty sure phones nowadays record the calls of the people using it now. It’s called the call log, I think.
TheWorstAstronomer December 22, 2011, 9:30 PM EST.
I’m pretty sure she told Sandy not to come.
hmp. December 22, 2011, 9:51 PM EST.
Dangit, you just had to ruin my birthday by putting their get-together on that day.
Not that I have anything against them as individuals, with decent intelligence levels and the ability to make their own decisions… but as a couple, co-dependent and sappy with no real substance to the relationship? Bleeeeehhhhh…
CuriousKitty22 December 22, 2011, 10:01 PM EST.
@TheWorstAstronomer: While you could potentially record all your calls on a smartphone (there must be an app for that) I doubt Mike’s been doing it - seems unlikely. And if he had, Lucy, who doesn’t have an iPhone, would probably not be able to figure out how to access the recordings let alone listen to them in the time she had between throwing up and Mike getting back. She could have read his messages, or deleted her contact details or Sandy’s or sent messages to Sandy from his phone. Or she could have just smashed it or stolen it.
We’ll have to wait and see!
And the call log that comes standard on most mobile phones these days is just a record of your incoming, outgoing and missed calls. Just the times and numbers, not the content.
BJMcG December 22, 2011, 10:07 PM EST.
As soon as he comes into his room, they would go crazy after he found out about his phone. 0_o
BlossomWolf December 22, 2011, 10:09 PM EST.
Look, you id1otic Mike, she keep doing what she is doing. You hurt her more than stinking ever! You are just a big f@t j3rk in human form!! Stop pushing her around because she l0ves you. Now go away id1ot!!!!!
An Angel I am December 22, 2011, 10:16 PM EST.
I really hope Carter finds out about this.
The awesome one December 22, 2011, 10:18 PM EST.
omg carter, yes. then we get that alternate ending we saw a few months ago where he kills everyone and pairs up with lucy.
Anonymus December 22, 2011, 10:20 PM EST.
@ an angel I am: you mean cat form

@anonymus: that’d be HILLARIUS!
The awesome one December 22, 2011, 10:24 PM EST.
Does any body want to have a very sophisticated conversion about mikes intimidating behaviour?
The awesome one December 22, 2011, 10:30 PM EST.
I’m not sure if it would be a good idea for her to do anything bad. She is known to feel guilty and hate on herself, it might not just hurt Mike and Sandy, it might also hurt her.
RiverSong December 22, 2011, 10:46 PM EST.
@anonymous: Yes. CarterXLucy. FTW.
@ The awesome one: No…But can we have a very sophisticated conversation about what a jerk he is?
PyroManiac December 22, 2011, 10:49 PM EST.
I’d love to get that alternate ending xD.
By the way how long until the update? I don’t know exactly the time in which the comic is updated.
Paw December 22, 2011, 11:13 PM EST.
@BJMcG: Well, I get my information on the subject from a single case in Pheonix Wright: Ace Attorney, so no doubt I was wrong on the subject, I just flipped a coin on whether or not to say something. I just thought it would be a neat plot device. Plus, I am not actually in possession of a cell phone. So, I did not really know what cell phones are capable of. For all I know, they all turn into little evil cell phone robots like in the Transformers movie. I’m a teen in the Florida backwaters, I’ll be lucky if I even LOAD the next page by 12:30. I wish I could make more coherent comments, but I feel extremely sick right now, so my minds a little everywhere at the moment. WHY CAN”T I STOP TYPING?
TheWorstAstronomer December 22, 2011, 11:13 PM EST.
Oh geez I’m sorry I just found the “show emoticons” link
I wondered where these guys were coming from!
I tried to pick a favourite but I can’t! They’re all too cute!
Besides my emo drama, I’d like to say that this fight between Mike and Lucy is getting ridiculous. How could Mike be friends with Lucy for so long, and just murder it like this? Why didn’t Mike try to fix things with Lucy, rather than reject her completely?
I miss the old days when physical violence was routine slapstick and everyone got along.
Georginorx December 22, 2011, 11:15 PM EST.
God, this reminds of my ex too much. Always happy around others, and a **** ant around me. v__v /wrings Mike’s neck/
Midnight December 22, 2011, 11:20 PM EST.
There’s an emoticons link? Oh, I see it now.
TheWorstAstronomer December 22, 2011, 11:24 PM EST.
Oh no, Lucy what did you do?
Go Mike go!
Peanut December 22, 2011, 11:29 PM EST.
The year is 2007?!?
Anyway, it looks like Mike is the bipolar one now.
LunarStar December 22, 2011, 11:29 PM EST.
Oooh man. I really hope that Lucy texted Sandy to help her clear things up. It would make things so much easier. On the other hand, the way things seem to be going, Mike is probably going to scream and shout again, and this time his mom will hear and all that jazz
Sam December 22, 2011, 11:33 PM EST.
I know, right?
I think it’s time to go crazy with emoticons till the next comic uploads~
One question, who is this:
Georginorx December 22, 2011, 11:37 PM EST.
@ Sam**. You made me come to this idea that Lucy DOES call Sandy. Doesn’t answer or anything but just leaves the phone be on the bed with the line open. Letting an ensuing conversation between Mike and Lucy be overheard. Hearing Mikes hostility, and perhaps changing her perception of Lucy and why she acted the way she did.
It would definitely spice things up, and seeing as how drama is the primary common in this comic, would fit well
Fenfir December 22, 2011, 11:45 PM EST.
@Georginorx Thats Amaya. Shes quiet and was used in previous comics.
cookie December 22, 2011, 11:48 PM EST.
thats That Mute Guy, from the movie theater.
curtisimo December 22, 2011, 11:50 PM EST.

cookie December 22, 2011, 11:55 PM EST.
The awesome one December 22, 2011, 11:58 PM EST.
I hope his mother does hear him wigging out, Lucy complains and explains, If his mother is the Lucy-sympathetic person I think she is, Mike is SO gonna get his *** handed to him on a silver platter.
TheWorstAstronomer December 22, 2011, 11:58 PM EST.
We’ll know in one minute.
TheWorstAstronomer December 22, 2011, 11:59 PM EST.
@cookie I though it was that girl that Katie hangs around with. What was her name? Stacy, right?

Just noticed the calendar says 2007 :>
TheDinosaursRevenge December 26, 2011, 6:41 PM EST.
Just sayin' January 23, 2012, 3:20 AM EST.
Yeah, I’m just gonna go ahead and call it right now…
Come January, Mike does end up leaving (everyone following him, of course), leaving Lucy with nobody but that guy in the trenchcoat. After a little while, Mike’s relationship with Sandy goes up in flames, and after an incredibly angsty, dramatic series of events (possibly involving a suicide attempt), he and Lucy end up together at last.
Note: I’m not bashing this comic or insinuating that the plot is simple and transparent or anything like that, just making a prediction is all. I’m actually surprised on how good a webcomic like this is, and am now absolutely hooked on it
You\'dPreferAnAstronaut January 28, 2012, 12:49 AM EST.
SGRTC January 28, 2012, 8:15 AM EST.
You know, if I were the creator, I would make Lucy try to commit suicide or something, and Mike would save her and tell her that everything he said was a lie. I so hope that would happen
Erika February 2, 2012, 11:06 AM EST.
Wait so Lucy puked because of the angst? And Mike totally like switched moods all becuz sandy doesn’t like Lucy is that it? Sandy you evil little piece of ggrrrrraaaaaahhhhh oh my gosh may the fury and wrath of this anonymous bcb fan be kindled against you dandy you seducing cant pronounce Michael correctly evil witch!!! I swear next thing you know mikes plan is gonna backfire on him.

Why dad why…
Sycrin April 12, 2012, 7:48 PM EST.
Mike’s too cute to hate. He really needs to acknowledge Lucy at some point for all that, though …Credit where credit’s due. She’s growing up faster than he might think, and she has a really likeable fun side to her, when she’s not feeling too threatened to show it.
Crayon April 28, 2012, 8:44 AM EST.
veronica should make so tht he says hes sorry and some- thing happens with sandy and him so him and lucy truly fall in love every one wants them to
miles May 10, 2012, 3:18 PM EST.
Soo.. Did anyone realise that he has to put that face on? He seems like he’s faking it..
Serge May 23, 2012, 12:38 AM EST.
@Serge Ya, it kinda looks like that.
Just sayin June 23, 2012, 10:29 AM EST.
Time to put your hard face on, Mike. The source of all your problems lies within that room…yourself, I mean Lucy.
Introspect June 27, 2012, 5:22 PM EST.
Lucy throw up again. Don’t hold it in.
