Lucy is a pretty swell gal, not taking the phone with her and throwing her vomit away. Class act, Elle.
Oh no, poor Lucy T_T
p.s. Mike…..you can just crawl in a dark hole and die you damn son of a bitch
Shpiersh December 28, 2011, 12:00 AM EST.
aww poor lucy
Chelis December 28, 2011, 12:00 AM EST.
poor lucy… she should have taken the phone.
Nyxeris December 28, 2011, 12:00 AM EST.
Hmm. Lucy never really stuck me as the type to get cold outside. I remember when she was totally fine and Mike was the one freezing…
FShounen December 28, 2011, 12:00 AM EST.
I keep wondering how this is gonna end. The lack of dialogue makes me wonder if she’s gonna kill herself. JUST KIDDING! That would be awful. But this is definitely gonna end on a cliffhanger. :C
Riku December 28, 2011, 12:00 AM EST.
OOOH I’M ANXIOUS NOW
KC December 28, 2011, 12:00 AM EST.
Why is she shivering? The sadness made her forger her own fur?

Poor lucy she needs a hug
kytan December 28, 2011, 12:01 AM EST.
Good going, Lucy!
Artemis Foxcoon December 28, 2011, 12:01 AM EST.
Interesting that everyone is on about ‘karma’ having another chance when what happened to Lucy is essentially karma.
QuakeIV December 28, 2011, 12:01 AM EST.
I hope that she goes to see Paulo again. Someone needs to give Mike a talking to, and by that I mean beat the crap out of him. With a shovel.
Kali December 28, 2011, 12:01 AM EST.
Silly Lucy, should have taken his scarf!
Pollie December 28, 2011, 12:01 AM EST.
Aww, poor Lucy. =( Feeling cold for a change is a definite sign she is VERY out of it.
Anagha December 28, 2011, 12:01 AM EST.
Who needs dialogue, anyway?
Well, at least she got rid of her puke…
SSElizabeth December 28, 2011, 12:01 AM EST.
Hide the evidence >.>
I’m still wondering how this chapter will end, and I hope lucy feels better soon… I just got done throwing up my guts and all I could think about was lucy doin the same thing.
By the way, what happened to the self made coat?
kolarbear December 28, 2011, 12:01 AM EST.
@FShounen I don’t think she’s shaking from the cold…
She…never gets cold…
Wugfish December 28, 2011, 12:02 AM EST.
poor Lucy, this is a stirringly beautiful page i must say. the dark, the ambiance, Lucy’s expression, and that wonderful snow; it adds up to make something that just feels perfect for the setting. Good Job Taeshi and thanks for the page.
Deuce Moose December 28, 2011, 12:02 AM EST.
That’ll teach ya to wear some cloths! (at least in the wintertime.)
Jorje December 28, 2011, 12:02 AM EST.
poor lucy good job not being revenge-y to mike to even though hes been a dick it shows that you do care and i hope things will get better for her shes had her heart ripped out
sh0rty December 28, 2011, 12:02 AM EST.
@Kali Well, I guess there’s that to consider too ^-^
FShounen December 28, 2011, 12:02 AM EST.
Ooh man, I can’t wait to see friday’s page and especially monday’s start of a new chapter. I wonder how that will go.
Inumaru12 December 28, 2011, 12:03 AM EST.
CLIFFHANGER. AGAIN. I stayed up late for another cliffhangerrrrr! You’re going to kill me, Taeshi.
Paw December 28, 2011, 12:03 AM EST.
hmm.. I dont think she even touched the phone… hope she talks to paulo though… Or abbey… Hopefully not augustus again… Cuz we all know what happened when she used augustus quotes…
Desterga December 28, 2011, 12:04 AM EST.
Aww. I don’t want to see Lucy like that… Poor her. I know she is a very good person. She would never do such revenge…
Aubi December 28, 2011, 12:04 AM EST.
I hope everyone knows that Lucy never gets cold from the weather.
One more age to see how this whole thing turns out. Mike better feel slightly guilty for snapping back at her too hard.
Bearcoon December 28, 2011, 12:04 AM EST.
Poor Lucy… poor poor baby ;__; Mike’s done a terrible thing
Clare December 28, 2011, 12:04 AM EST.
Wow, I actually do feel really bad for Lucy now. I mean, sure she was a complete nasty person to everyone, but she still has feelings. He made her vomit she was so hurt. This is the one time I’m finding myself really hating Mike. No one should make anyone feel that bad, no matter what they’ve done. Bullying is not okay no matter what the circumstances.
Toli December 28, 2011, 12:04 AM EST.
Best case scenario she’s throwing away her vomit.
Worst case scenario she just did something she will deeply regret.
Edit: The actual best case scenario is where I read the author’s comments to see that Lucy did, in fact, toss her vomit.
Chocolate Milk December 28, 2011, 12:05 AM EST.
Possible people finding her when she passes out from hypothermia. (If she doesn’t make it home, heaven forbid)
let’s see what the final page has in store…
Vega December 28, 2011, 12:05 AM EST.
She’s not cold… she never gets cold…. The pain in her eyes makes it clear why she’s shivering. She’s reaching that breaking point.
Yes, as I said on the last page she’s not well. I hope she can find her way home, and I hope she can find strength to tell people about this because she won’t be able to face this alone….
biblioholic December 28, 2011, 12:05 AM EST.
This is really more of an incomplete epilogue to me. It shows what Lucy is doing but not what she’s carrying
Charmdra December 28, 2011, 12:06 AM EST.
If she did do anything phone related, it was probably only to get a particular number or read some texts.
But im gonna give her the benefit of the doubt and say ‘way to take the high road’ no one can hear you cry on top of a mountain… Or worse, they will and you’ll creep out tons of people. Either way, win win.
Lothmar December 28, 2011, 12:06 AM EST.
By looking at that scene I feel cold for some reason, at least she stayed civil after all of what happened over there.
Darf14 December 28, 2011, 12:07 AM EST.
mmmmmm idk. The way way this page seems, the way she looks at the dumpster…the fact that we only have one page left and the final panel is her running away from the dumpster while our focus is still on it…makes me think there’s more to that bag then just vomit. O.o I guess we’ll see Friday!
D(r)aGon88 December 28, 2011, 12:08 AM EST.
Mike… i really.. REALLY!! hope that someone just do to you what you’re doing to lucy… and even WORSE!!!! ¬¬
Nadss December 28, 2011, 12:09 AM EST.
PEOPLE look at the page comment will you she was throwing the vomit away and she’s not going to get hypothermia it’s just snow
sgtrtytr\\ December 28, 2011, 12:09 AM EST.
she going to freeze
xhallow December 28, 2011, 12:10 AM EST.
Too numb for revenge. The rational side of her mind is in control. Just go home and sleep. It’s all a bad dream…
Just a bad dream.
Huh, i care too much about this. What does that make me?
Never here - Wind
Edit: Annoyed at the filter.
Never here December 28, 2011, 12:11 AM EST.
Guys, what else would even be in the bag? We saw Mike with the phone in the last page. I don’t understand how throwing a bag of mystery (aka: vomit) into a dumpster could still be a bad thing at this point.
I like the whole feel of this page. It’s very cold.
causticAntilogy December 28, 2011, 12:11 AM EST.
Okay, Paulo or someone has to come to Lucy’s rescue…
Xenos December 28, 2011, 12:11 AM EST.
@sgtrtytr There is a slight possibility Taeshi is PURPOSELY misleading us for the final page. But then again it could be just a bag full o vomit. Again, we’ll just have to wait til Friday to see.
D(r)aGon88 December 28, 2011, 12:12 AM EST.
btw…. I… don’t believe that’s just vomit… o___o
Nadss December 28, 2011, 12:12 AM EST.
Hey you can be waring the warmest clothing ever, but if you’re emotionally compromised the whole world feels cold. And the cold snow outside isn’t going to help with that nervous cold feeling.
Still I’m wondering what she actually did. I doubt the author would go through the trouble of showing us this scene if there wasn’t something about the bag she wanted us to see. Foreshadowing of some kind.
I doubt she’d go talk to any of her school friends. Not voluntarily at least, she’d be too freaked out they would take Mike’s side right away, plus it would be to easy of a quick fix for such an epic deconstruction of her emotional balance. Plus knowing Lucy she’s going to keep this one to herself. Which is of course only going to make it worse until Mike finally does leave the table after the play.
Just some thoughts…
AnonymousMonkey December 28, 2011, 12:13 AM EST.
didn’t take the phone, didn’t cause any issue, threw out her vomit, didn’t mention it to Mike….. burst in to tears in the middle of the snow and ran home all alone :\
nice one Mike. you’re great. so right about Lucy being a raging selfish horrible monster. all of you Lucy-hater-Mike-supporters are obviously right. -sarcasm-
this is horrible no matter what or who, no-one deserves this :\ <3
oh yes, and there is the fact that she’s not shivering from the cold….. which is a horrible thing to have to feel…. :\
and yes, this was stunningly done…. it makes me feel cold as well… :\ I don’t think anyone who has felt this way before has to have any question….
that panel where she closed her eyes…. I have no idea how you captured that…. <;^;>
annon December 28, 2011, 12:14 AM EST.
well worth the wait. Can’t wait to see where the next chapter will take us, and I hope Lucy gets better soon
we all here cheering you on Lucy!!!
K.R.I December 28, 2011, 12:16 AM EST.
Oh, duh. Can’t believe I won’t be able to see the last page till next week…
Just gotta wait it out. Again.
Take the time to compose yourself, Lucy. And maybe some space could help.
Harris012 December 28, 2011, 12:16 AM EST.
I thought Lucy didn’t get chilly from the cold because of the comics from before? o3o Hence why Mike wore a scarf. |D Oh Lucy, good for you~ Make it home without catching a cold. Maybe she’s just shaking from the previous encounter?
Milly December 28, 2011, 12:17 AM EST.
Mego December 28, 2011, 12:18 AM EST.
She’s not gonna get hypothermia, she’s not even cold, she’s shivering because she’s probably crying or just really upset or something.
Lyraiz December 28, 2011, 12:20 AM EST.
She’s prolly gonna be called in sick for school and everyone’s going to be worried except for Mike.
Dusk December 28, 2011, 12:22 AM EST.

Remember when you used to play?
Back when you hung around all day?
It seems as if it never was.
Remember when you were a team?
When friendship was not a dream?
Memory hurts. It really does.
Remember when you two were close?
When each was the other’s host?
It’s less than useful to complain.
Remember when you truly cared?
The smiles and laughter that was shared?
Why is it always stuck on pain?
A question I can answer not.
Why not love things that you’ve got?
There is logic when I sing.
Remember when you had the magic?
This new hostility? Tragic.
When did you stop remembering?

There are so many other people that care about lucy, I hope she can remember that.. I can’t believe some of the awful things Mike said to her. How can Mike even smile after speaking to someone that way?
Wherever Lucy goes, I’m sure she’ll find plenty of support. (ok except if she goes to but she doesn’t even know his address)

Could’ve contrasted the colors better to make Lucy stand out more, instead of making all the colors on her the same. Shadow added with her regular colors would have probably had a better effect than just using the bucket tool with the same color on everything : /
Chellby December 28, 2011, 12:35 AM EST.
And I see nothing to do but move on, Lucy realize that she can live with having different friends and people who love her and not being so dependent, Mike moving on from having to deal with being abused and pushed around to a brighter future as well. Sometimes friendships can’t last. All they can do is make the best of their new lives.

Well i must say , i though she would take the fun becuse i though less of her…however we dont know if she looked at sandy´s number but sinceraly i hope she didnt..this is her time to finaly grow up

Disappointing. I was hoping for Mike’s mother to confront him. Oh, well. One page left. Hope is small but it’s there…
Slia December 28, 2011, 12:52 AM EST.
Why do I have the strange feeling that mike doesn’t really hate lucy, and that sandy is making him act this way towards lucy. I mean he seemed sad about it
Peter December 28, 2011, 12:55 AM EST.
Well, if she is shivering from the cold, which is what it looks like to me, it’s symbolic. She’s normally not the type of person to let something like weather bother her, but the fact that she’s shivering now indicates that there is nothing left in her heart to keep her warm… not even the tiniest hope that the boy she so desperately loves cares for her at all anymore.
This page is so dark and poignant, I love it. But poor Lucy… I really just hope she finds another guy who will make her happy again as soon as possible. (My heart is set on Paulo. He’s such a good guy.)
Kat December 28, 2011, 12:56 AM EST.
@chellby The connotations you were supposed to understand was that she is darker than her surroundings, which aren’t very bright themselves.
@Everyone Who Still Thinks The Bag Means Something Deep
It’s a bag. Of vomit and mischelaneous trash. She took it out because it was coureous to do so, and because she doesn’t wish him anything but happiness and his happiness would be hurt by the smell of her vomit hanging around, because it was embarassing that she had to vomit because she was yelled at, because it didn’t occur to her to take the phone it occured to YOU.
If you want to see things figuratively, just look at it like this: she did something bad and wanted to make it better.
Now PLEASE stop talking about the GODDAMN TRASH BAG when she is RUNNING THROUGH A SNOWSTORM WHEN SHE IS DISORIENTED AND EMOTIONALLY LOST!
Again… Lucy, I hope you make it home.
This page IS poignant. Again, I must applaud you Taeshi for your presentation of such a wonderous story.
biblioholic December 28, 2011, 1:04 AM EST.
Hmm…I don’t think she’s selfish and shallow do you? Especially after not screwing with Mike’s phone and throwing away her vomit to hide her true hurt from him. When she picked on mike didn’t he fight back? They are always bickering and punching each other in previous comics if I remember correctly, so Mike isn’t exactly innocent. I have a friend like that- we punch and pinch and tease each other like siblings- and love each other dearly all the same. It’s odd, but even though I know a lot of what Mike said was out of anger and very one-sided I can’t help but be worried that what he said- especially about no one loving Lucy- was true and that maybe the others WOULD abandon her. I hope this isn’t the case
Hiccupby December 28, 2011, 1:05 AM EST.
Lucy has my deepest sympathies. But I’m suspicious that she did something or is up to something…
Lunas December 28, 2011, 1:07 AM EST.

Edit: Oh and poor Lucy! I hope she will feel better soon.

Very nice comic Taeshi btw..
P@ncakez December 28, 2011, 1:18 AM EST.
The secret joke here is that she had filled the bag with explosives off-panel and threw it into Mike’s backyard. Now we wait for the imminent explosion and Lucy’s decent of sanity into being a serial killer.
nAar December 28, 2011, 1:21 AM EST.
Awww poor Lucy!
I really really really really reeeeeeaaaalllllllllyyyyyyy hope that she’ll be okay…
Guest D December 28, 2011, 1:24 AM EST.
Someone mentioned Mike’s scarf, which then sent me spiraling into another direction, yet it is one I personally rather like. Anyways, Taeshi, I think you should change Mike’s scarf color. It simply dawned on me that one of my favorite animated short series, “There She Is!”, has one protagonist who is a cat that wears a scarf, who upon drifting away from the other protagonist in the series, has his signature green scarf turn to grey. It’s a purely symbolic yet otherwise meaningless change, but one I can’t stop thinking of now.
Zalanort December 28, 2011, 1:26 AM EST.
Oh wait, @biblioholic, your right!
Why are we still pondering the “profound emotional ties” or something the bag symbolizes?
Lucy’s in a freaking BLIZZARD!
And she’s *insert all dem feelins*!
God, shes gonna get lost or something!
I mean, how did I not realize this earlier?
Don’t get lost and freeze Lucy.
Unless you do freeze, and the next chapter is an intermission where Lucy gets woken up in the future because the blizzard cryo’d her.
That would be a nice tension releaver.
Curtisimo - you have been in cryogenic suspension for NINE NINE NINE NINE…
Curtisimo December 28, 2011, 1:27 AM EST.
I still find myself sympathizing with mike. He was harsh, but hes a kid. Kids make mistakes. Lucy needs actual help, a psyciatrist. There is nothing mike should be reasonably expected to do! its not his job to put up with her.
krikkit042 December 28, 2011, 1:30 AM EST.
poor poor Lucy…
Leen619 December 28, 2011, 1:32 AM EST.
@krikkit042 He’s not expected to give her psychological help, he’s expected to NOT UTTERLY DESTROY HER EMOTIONALLY!
biblioholic December 28, 2011, 1:45 AM EST.
She’s a swell gal for doing what a normal person better do in that situation. YOU SO FUNNEH VERONICA
Kyle December 28, 2011, 1:46 AM EST.
This is making me sad… Throughout this whole chapter I’ve been hoping their relationship might actually stop spinning in a downward spiral…
I’m glad Lucy took the high road (great job by the way, Taeshi)….!
I think that Mike needs to become unbiased and see this all through an unclouded perspective for a second (I know it’s hard, but not impossible)… She’s really trying to make everything right now and he’s not seeing it… It’s disappointing to me…
I’m still stuck on the whole, “The whole group will follow me” bit… That was just kind of a jerk move… Who would put their friends through choosing one or the other over a fading friendship, can’t everyone else just stay friends with them both, even if Mike and Lucy aren’t friends anymore?
BittersweetLove December 28, 2011, 1:53 AM EST.
thats entireley true!
IF MIKE WERE THREE.
shure, i dont know what to do in that situation, i would just wait for the lucy-mild-friendlyish-abuse problem to go away on its own, but i know what you DONT do.
i mean, really now.
although, honestly, mike apearing to force himself to do it at the beginning still saves him in my view.
curtisimo - *insert witty end comment*
curtisimo December 28, 2011, 1:53 AM EST.
Although she didn’t steal nor (apparently) tamper with Mike’s phone, I’m still not relieved. n Even if Lucy still took out Mike’s trash along with her vomit, I believe that it wasn’t out of courtesy; that in reality she did it in order to hide her feelings again. To not reveal that she is falling apart in a futile attempt to look strong. However, considering Mike’s mindset and decision to hate her, it might have not effected anything if she had left the bag in his room. n I’m very sure that Lucy will keep silent about this debacle. We’ll have to wait and see whether everyone else notices that there’s something wrong and intervene or “mind their own business” and do nothing, making everything worse for her.
Redd December 28, 2011, 1:54 AM EST.
AHHHHHHHHH, i was right about the vomit in the bag!
Noble_6 December 28, 2011, 1:59 AM EST.

I’m not sure if anyone else has noticed, but I think this is the first time in the whole series that Taeshi has shown Lucy to be cold in the snow. I can’t decide if that’s an important observation of character behavior or not.
And Lucy, please get home. With it snowing so hard and probably being down in the 20s or even teens, her health could be in grave danger if shes exposed for too long.
Oh, oh yeah, and mike can go to hell.

I don’t know what you’re talking about!
Come on Mike, are you really that stupid?
Yes… yes he is.
Only one more page left of this chapter. Don’t worry, Lucy. You aren’t alone. There are TONS of fans out here that are supporting you 100%! WE LOVE YOU LUCY!

what happened to the
“i never get cold!” lucy?
hello December 28, 2011, 2:47 AM EST.
Mike is so arrogant, so vile, so cruel! He doesn’t see how Lucy feels for him. HE is the one who is treating her like garbage. Sandy is so girly girl, and she is going to use Mike to rid Lucy out of every picture. Mike is such a snob, and he is so greedy for someone over childhood memories, that he can’t see his impact on poor Lucy. She’s tried to change her attitude for him, and for everyone. She’s so depressed, and Michael doesn’t show **** to her. Lucy should stand up for herself, and curse the hell out of Michael, and make him feel guilty for how worthless he has been treating Lucy! No other had accepted her because she was apparently not normal, it’s not her fault for being so dependent. She was rejected so much, and obviously jealousy is overtaking her because she is again being rejected! No one really understands how much **** she’s been through, and Michael just throws her away like that. He needs to be taught a lesson that Lucy gets delicate around those things, and possibly she’s going into a very depressed state! Thanks for being so eager and horny and obsessive for a *****, Mike. You’ve just tortured Lucy’s life.
Desolation December 28, 2011, 2:49 AM EST.
A lot of people seem to think that Lucy messing with Mike’s phone will magically make things better. Like Mike will say “She broke my phone. Clearly, I’m the one who should apologize!”
But seriously, I think they’re both at fault. Just sayin’.

how very overly dramatic and completely pointless, copic…
well, i have a very bad headache now, trying to determine what the hell i was looking at on this page.
i think you went a LITTLE bit crazy with the snow, veronica… and the darkness, cause i can’t see a damn thing.
seriously, could someone explain to me what is happening?
all i see are nearly-black panels with a bunch of snow all over the place.
all i can really make out is the first panel, where lucy is just standing there holding her vomit bag… and i think she’s running away from something in the last panel… that’s all i can make out.
it’s kinda irritating.

I think Mike deserves to be happy with Sandy. It’s his true love He shouldn’t have to be friends with Lusy if it doesn’t make him happy and it’s a lie.

Awww, poor Lucy. That chill is more than just the winter wind….it’s the chill of the harshest rejection howling through her very (now broken) soul. The longer the comic goes on, the more LucyxMike seems to slip away into a void…
Beagel December 28, 2011, 3:31 AM EST.
Weird. This is the first time I can honestly say “I want to hold her in my arms, stroke her hair, and just let her cry till it hurts a little less” about a webcomic character. Well done.
i unno, some guy December 28, 2011, 3:44 AM EST.

no, of course not, ARE YOU CRAZY!!!
ItsMe!!! December 28, 2011, 4:20 AM EST.
This entire chapter has been absolutely gut wrenching.
Mike expressing his feelings, although exceeding what was necessary. I can’t say I hate Mike at all, but upset at his reaction. He was justified in his actions until he attacked her emotions. I don’t think He truly hates her either, or he would not have smiled while playing games.
How Lucy is going to cope with this will be a mystery to me, because in her current state of mind she will be completely unpredictable.
I personally am just hoping not to see 10+ chapters of sad Lucy. Its a wonderful chance for her character to develop into something more.
I’m glad I finally discovered this comic about 4 months ago. Its been the most entertaining (not to mention consistently updated) comic I’ve followed for the last 5+ years. Good Job Taeshi, and I look forward to the future.
P.S. I’ll really need to make an effort for some Fan-Art soon =D
Fenfir December 28, 2011, 4:22 AM EST.
Ah dear……Poor Lucy
That was unfortunately going to happen sometime. Interesting that she’s shown feeling the cold. Then again, she probably isn’t…..that’s probably the depression again.
What will she do now, I wonder? After the moping of course. Will Sandy’s visit knock sense into Mike, or widen the rift? That’s what I want to see. Sandy’s building prejudice caused by Mike’s filtering of events could bring an interesting shock. Lucy really doesn’t need more isolation now…….
ShokandAwe December 28, 2011, 4:27 AM EST.
To that person above that said that what happened to Lucy is karma in itself: No.
It wasn’t karma. What she did will never be compared to the emotional abuse she got from the one person she still trusted, all in one go. Never. I think the creator is trying too hard to make it realistic after we’ve been shown that Mike DID stay by her side no matter how many times she beat him up, and that all can’t be discarded as mere comedy of old times. It’s too easy to forget all the GOOD times they had together, all those multiple episodes in which Lucy truly cared about him. It’s too easy to disregard it as a sign of her dependence from him.
She didn’t need to hear any of what he said. NOBODY NEEDS TO BE ABUSED THAT WAY. If that situation was presented IRL, a person like Lucy would jump off a bridge with no more care in the world. You just DON’T poke at one person’s weaknesses KNOWING it will break them apart and push them to suicide. Mike is a cruel, vicious ******* who waited on too late to tell her what he really thought about her. The malicious words thrown at her will never help her move on. It just showed her how much of a horrible, selfish, rotten-minded her best friend actually is. We, the readers, already saw this ugly side of his when he used Lucy as a replacement for Sandy. Now Lucy knows. Now this will be a chance for her to finally kick him out of her life for good once she gives him the project. Or to no longer care about her life anymore.
He thinks he knows her so well, when no, he didn’t actually know her at all. He was clouded by resentment the whole freaking time, turning him into a monstrous embodiment of egoism. He’s been thinking about himself the whole time. He stayed by Lucy’s side because of his selfish needs. Sandy didn’t open his eyes, he was already that far gone to the bonkers zone before she could put her damned finger between him and Lucy.
Poor Lucy stubbornly saw mostly the good things about Mike. Even despite the abuse, which fyi I don’t condone either, she really did care about him and it SHOWED. I cannot think that she was that selfish too, and you know why? Because it was all mentioned by a biased point of view. Mike never thought of Lucy otherwise. He always, always thought that she was selfish. He always thought that all the times she was gentle with him was for her own profit. He was biased to the ****ing core. I cannot believe one word of what he says. I can’t take him seriously. And I will not believe any person who sees her through Mike’s eyes. That is not fair judgement.
If this comic was realistic enough, I truly hope life kicks Mike in the face hard. He doesn’t deserve to be happy. He showed his true colors, willing to manipulate his “friends” (which he doesn’t really care about) into abandoning Lucy. I will never consider such person “cool” or “omg so awesome because he stood up to her FINALLY!!!!!!”. The fact he put himself through troubles to stay with Lucy when he could have pushed her away a lot earlier in his life before it came to THIS… really makes me despise him as a person. And the fact he’s just a kid does not excuse his horrible choices. It’s too easy to excuse someone when they’re young.
Both of them did terrible choices and both of them should pay EQUALLY for their mistakes. Lucy is getting unbalanced ****. I really want to see Mike break down in future chapters. Only that would make me satisfied at this comic, because right now all the crap thrown at Lucy is too much. She needs time to heal, a lot of it. It would make me happy when she realized that Mike was not worth being depressed over, and finally moves on and shows him how wrong he’s always been.
This will be my first and probably last comment in this section. I needed to get this off my chest. I feel better now.
Rolling my eyes December 28, 2011, 4:35 AM EST.
i reeeeally hope sandy turns out to be a huuuuge jerk and mike is forced to crawl back to lucy… that would be fabulous and this has been really bugging me but below the comic with all of the pets like yashy, lilly and the others ..who’s the red fluffy bird? ive read all the comics 3 times but i still have no idea

F*ck you mike! You’re just a petty little ****** who needs a bitch who’s not even here make him break his best friend’s heart. *** hole
Sandy Hater December 28, 2011, 5:29 AM EST.
This just occurred to me, and I feel rather foolish for not realising it before; Lucy is most likely a little bit monophobic (I.e. afraid of being alone or without a certain person) at this point. She’s been depending on mike for so long, and has grown so emotionally attatched to him that she can’t handle the thought that he doesn’t feel the same. In which case, if someone like Paulo does end up trying to help, he’d most likely become a replacement, and somehow I think lucy would be upset if she realised she’s using one of her closest friends as a cheap stand in. At the heart of it, Lucy’s a good person; she’s blunt and coarse and quite often she’s a bit self-centred, but when it comes down to it she does care about her friends.
In conclusion, much as I hate to say this, just as no-one could help abbey until he himself realised he had a problem and was willing to address it, no-one will be able to help Lucy until she realises how badly she needs help.
Prussia-sama December 28, 2011, 5:53 AM EST.
So Lucy has to walk home… in the snow… after she just had puked and had a very tragic loss… Is this high school or World War 1?
P.S. I would’ve lobbed the bag at Mike’s window

Fortunos December 28, 2011, 5:56 AM EST.
@Prussia-sama: Really good comment.
I’m happy Lucy didn’t took the phone and that she put the vomit to trash. I like this caracter too much to bear it if she didn’t. Lucy’s a good person who need help not hate! She is also really difficult to help.
AsOfSpade December 28, 2011, 6:09 AM EST.
what i love about this comic is that…..you get like doctor talks on the comments and proffersional talks, This website like thier fun field day xD
for goodness sake its a great comic dont ruin it with “oh, i think lucy suffers “this and that”” OH! and lets not forget this one; “Mike doing the right **** here” >_< pleassseeee just stop thinking you know these characters! alse your just giving out spoilers
Flaze December 28, 2011, 6:15 AM EST.

Yuki December 28, 2011, 6:43 AM EST.
as Derp said, “Karma is only a word that describe chain of grattitude/grudge which bind all the people, and doesn’t let them ignore good things, and bad deeds of other people.” I agree with using the word “karma” to identify this thing, but it’s nothing supernatural. I hope people doesn’t believe in it as they would do for example with a god, ‘cause it’s senseless. this is what I meant.
(I wanted to specify another thing, but it would have raised the biggest debate…)
p.s. anybody noticed that lucy had nothing else than the bag with her? where did she put the essay?
boh... December 28, 2011, 6:43 AM EST.
It’s a bit late at night for me to be commenting, but…

Yeah she is swell, so why do i feel so terrible.? Lucy deserves happiness too.
Freddyz December 28, 2011, 7:57 AM EST.
*just ordered a book, cant wait to get it
Anyways, i’ve been reading up to date and mike is ******* me off, i don’t really like sandy in the first place but maybe mike does belong with her, because he doesnt deserve lucy. Although her suspicious look is a bit odd, i can’t help the feeling that she looks like she’s matured a bit. Maybe Mike’s bitch fit finally took a tole on Lucy’s thoughts and slapped some sense into her, but, I’m afraid isnt gonna know what could have had before it’s gone, on his own accord. Karma by his own actions, oh the irony.
Acoustic-Fox December 28, 2011, 7:58 AM EST.

Suzume December 28, 2011, 8:07 AM EST.
@ suzume i hope she doesn’t cause if you remember he’s got some connection to the punks who attacked lucy an everyone in chapter 12 so i hope not
an as for lucy She done the right thing she didn’t touch the phone she didn’t do nothing to cause no more chaos but in the end shes deeply hurt an broken…she didn’t deserve it even you lucy haters can bite a huge *** lemon only reason lucy acted out cause she didn;t wanna seem weak an mike showed her some compassion an she enjoied it more then ppl think mike only thinks she done what she did with all the hitting which btw WAS never a Serious DEAL cause A she never Really hurt him it was play fighting Kids DO that an as they grow up they change an seems to me mike still has some growing up to do honestly lucy tried to make up for her mistakes in the past an i can see it …an mike went down the path of listening to a girl Far far away and i may add DID not tell her EVERY DETAIL AS to why he got his butt kicked an lets be honest He deserved some of the *** kicking he got he only told sandy the things that lucy did an never got around to explaining WHY she done it to begin with So really sandy knows only the bad that mike told an doesn’t know Why he got hit to begin with so really she doesn’t know the whole story an jumping the gun like she has been is only gonna cause issues later an embarrass herself later on in the story its what i can tell but who knows what will happen all i know is what i think may happen we won’t know till it comes

This is probably the second most depressing page this chapter. Poor Lucy. Glad she didn’t take the phone though. Would’ve just made things worse for her.
shunoflegacy December 28, 2011, 8:39 AM EST.
No one should be stuck with Lucy. She’s abusive and self centered. She needs to see a psychiatrist and get some prescriptions meds.
Kitt December 28, 2011, 8:41 AM EST.
im glad lucy didnt take the phone(and hopefully didnt mess with it when she could have), it makes her a very respectable character. just because mike is no longer the knight in shinning armor doesnt mean she has to start throwing mud.

Shut up Kitt or whatever your name is, look I can see your perspective just let Lucy be for what she is A good natural friend who is awesome person on the inside. I made a bet to myself and my sis. If Sandy will cheat on mike when she see some other guy or girl that is hotter than him. I got money on sandy’s cheating days. Mike will probably get jailed or sued for stalking her

There’s the vomit in the bag, nothing happened to Mike’s phone. Lucy shouldn’t have gone outside, its too cold for her. plus she seems weak

Kit December 28, 2011, 10:06 AM EST.
Oh Mike. You cruel, neglecting, and badly-assuming monster.
All she wanted to do was throw away her barf.
A Visitor December 28, 2011, 10:07 AM EST.
I still don’t understand why people want her to be a horrible person and prolong the drama at hand. Are you that desperate for drama guys? Lucy did the right thing, she has proven that she is miles ahead of mike in maturity and sensitivity. Support her good decisions instead of whining about how she didn’t make bad ones just because you would have.
sprinklesaurus December 28, 2011, 10:09 AM EST.
Is it showing how distraught she is by making her react to the cold? Because I was always under the impression that she dealt with the cold better than anyone else.
Xain December 28, 2011, 10:13 AM EST.
You guys know that extreme emotional distress can make someone shake uncontrollably, right? It doesn’t necessarily have to be about the cold at all. It has already been shown that she’s prone to nervous reactions by having to vomit from the stress earlier.
Lucy you are being remarkably sensible.
MadH December 28, 2011, 10:22 AM EST.
Awww…poor lucy !!
WELL MIKE !! LOOK AT HER NOW !! NOW SHE HAVE A CARING SIDE !!
U should take his phone U know…!! but u did a nice thing !!
Well I hope there’s karma !! BEWARE MIKE !!! :p
Bird :) December 28, 2011, 10:27 AM EST.
Well this is only two sides of a coin…how a man and woman fight. It is rather sad and also very idiotic on Mikes part, literally having the ability to treat ones mind and soul like it is nothing and utterly throw every little thing about her out of his mind, and run past her like she never existed. He having not a second thought about anthers LIFE and EXISTENCE is remarkably absurd. But also, it was needed for Lucy’s ears.
Though the pain she is going through now is only imaginable by alot of us, she also knows she messed up badly in the past, and now she feeling the backlash of it, she cannot mend it back together like she was trying to do. Mike does have fun with her….he actually does not want to hurt the feelings of Sandy who was hurt with him being with Lucy. The pain in his eyes when he confessed his utter hatred is a little but of proof in it.
Sandy, well, she was just hoping what was best for Mike, but she did over look how it was going to work out. She did not know who Lucy was in the past, and also did not know that Lucy and Mike were once very tight. And she took that away making Lucy who she is now.
All three of them has a hand in this, and Mike was trapped in the middle. He wants a relationship based off of what he thinks love and compassion is truly about, but his thoughts and also his own gut will soon tell him other wise. Though he does not feel anything now, in later days, he will being to see that some wounds no matter how big or small, can be repaired. Lucy was part of him, and she being the only one who she is, cannot be replaced. And it will make the small wound fester and get sicker in time.
Though I do feel bad for Lucy, I cannot help but think that this was coming the whole time this comic was in progress. Her ways of showing her care and also showing how she also NEEDED attention, was only going to bite her in the end.
…….I just wonder what her pets at home will do when they get news if they do find out….especially Yoshi…
Rolego December 28, 2011, 10:32 AM EST.
Same goes for Mike as well. His anger and brash self will only do more pain for himself and others in the future….no one…will follow a person like he. To hurt and forget…it is almost sickening actually…

uh she left of her own accord
Are you blaming Mike for not stopping her?
Darth GW7 December 28, 2011, 11:40 AM EST.
@RawrDinosaurs! I wouldn’t worry too much about the cold getting to Lucy. Afterall the winter weather doesnt affect her a whole lot. (As it was mentioned in a previous chapter)
All we need to worry about is how this is going to affect Lucy. Will she leave the table? Will she refuse to see any of her friends? It seems likely at this point.
Mint-sama December 28, 2011, 11:48 AM EST.
I’m sorry but i have to say it…. I hate Sandy… like.. a lot And Mikeis starting to **** me off tooo
vappletree December 28, 2011, 11:54 AM EST.
She shoulda kept the vomit and put it in his locker! He deserves it! Lucy has done nothing wrong except be too clingy which only hurts herself.
OwnUbyCake December 28, 2011, 11:58 AM EST.
That is EXACTLY what she did wrong. It’s her own fault for not giving up before her obsession with Mike destroyed her friendship with him.
Oh well, too late for that. It’s salvageable but she needs to stop rushing it, she’s just pushing him further away.
Darth GW7 December 28, 2011, 12:02 PM EST.
The progression of misery on this page is quite well done, it’s both upsetting and lovely, kudos on that. Poor girl, she must feel so alone. No one should have to feel like that, left to run home in the dark and snow.
PossiblyVenomous December 28, 2011, 12:04 PM EST.
What a let down. I was hoping she’d get her revenge…Mike shouldn’t get away with this.
Polaris December 28, 2011, 12:06 PM EST.
@DarthGW7 Yes. That’s exactly what they’re doing. And no it’s not exactly dumb. In her fragile state anyone with a brain can think of a “Lucy worse case scenario”. She is known to be rather drastic. And frankly Mike kind of pushed her to leave. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion. Opinions aren’t dumb they are simply opinions. I think Mike should have stopped Lucy but also that it was good he didn’t. She needed out of there and fast. Poor Lucy she never gets cold
Izzybelle December 28, 2011, 12:09 PM EST.
Some things just don’t go well.
twalker500 December 28, 2011, 12:22 PM EST.
I’m guessing she’ll get home fine, and end up cuddling her pets. How else could we wrap up a chapter like this in just one page? It’s what she did last time Mike abandoned her for Sandy. But I think this time she’ll be wiser shout coming back to Mike the next time he opens up to her. I’m looking forward to seeing her stand on her own for a while.
@Brick: I’m 25. Some how this high school drama stuff still roped me in. I think it’s something that stays with you - and a smart topic for a comic, because pretty much everyone in a 1st world country can relate to it.
JC December 28, 2011, 12:23 PM EST.
Poor thing I hope she finds some one that dose cears for her
Black fox December 28, 2011, 12:43 PM EST.
Lucy must feel entirely broken… Mike told her something that she eventually knew was true, though he didn’t completely have the right to tell her with a screwed attitude. Lucy IS pretty sweet, not taking the phone and ridding her vomit. She’s definitely torn up, but her conscience is still there… Its like she might go insane, she means well, but she might become a mentally shriveled up weakling.
Minty Winter December 28, 2011, 12:52 PM EST.
I’m kind of worried.. Where is she running? She won’t go to Paulo after what Mike said.. Goddamn korat, there was no need to ruin every other relationship too. I hope Yashy and Chirpy and Lily are gonna help her out..
Curious about how this chapter will end. And I’m reaally hoping for a short intermission.
RC December 28, 2011, 1:06 PM EST.

and, i must say, thats a crime!
a crime, for shame!

curtisimo December 28, 2011, 1:11 PM EST.
aww…..lucy its ok u can make it sleep it in may help u feel better ^^ if not just punch a wall just sayin but mikeu dont even know u just dont
Lionesst December 28, 2011, 1:30 PM EST.
Lucy, my respect for you has raised way past the respect I used to have for old mike.
Luio December 28, 2011, 1:34 PM EST.
@RC I imagine that she’s probably going to Augustus, the one character that Mike was absolutely assuredly -not- referring to.
Either that, or going home to sob her eyes out.
The odd thing about this comic is that while what Mike did was truly hateful to Lucy, I can’t really hold it against him. Doing that was probably the best possible thing he could have done for himself in that situation, rather than letting things fester and the situation get out of control and/or dangerous. It definitely gave Lucy and himself a chance to let go of a lot of emotional baggage.
I’ve been in this situation before, myself. If Mike hadn’t done that, then he would have to deal with lingering feelings that’d just continue to tear him up inside. That, and Lucy would still continue to have hope for something that will likely never happen, and knowing that something will never happen but still hoping for it is a true heart-ripper within the self.
So, in essence, while it wasn’t the “Nicest” thing to do, it was definitely the best thing for everyone’s health, as long as Lucy doesn’t go suicidal.
PercyLyn December 28, 2011, 1:43 PM EST.
Sad kittens out in the cold alone… get me everytime.
Rachel Vang December 28, 2011, 1:45 PM EST.
Taking the phone would have been more fun but at least now Mike can’t throw anything new in her face next time because she never got to blow up at him.
Meg December 28, 2011, 1:46 PM EST.
Lucy’s such a nice person. Taking her vomit and leaving his phone.
Darknesss December 28, 2011, 2:01 PM EST.
man, even she doesn’t deserve that **** mike’s giving her.
meleeman December 28, 2011, 2:02 PM EST.
PauloIsBallin December 28, 2011, 2:03 PM EST.
Great job on this page! Looks good and you get a lot out of so little that really happened. Also to all those that are saying she’ll be going to Augustus oooone little problem with that theory.
She doesn’t know where he lives! She’s never been to his house and he’s never told her where she lives (that we have seen). So it would be impossible for her to go to his house! I’d say home, to Paulo-though due to what Mike said that is possibly is a ‘no go’-or to possible Sue’s house. Why Sue? Sue and Lucy are pretty much best friends. I don’t think it’ll happen, since we haven’t actually seen much of Sue lately, but heck Taeshi could throw in something random and make it be Tess or something! Whatever the case I don’t believe it will be Augustus at all, simple for the obvious fact that Lucy doesn’t know where he lives.
Unless of course she just goes wondering in the snow and Augustus finds her and takes her with him back home. But this is one of those times we just can’t predict what’s going to happen for sure!
FireFang December 28, 2011, 2:03 PM EST.
@PercyLyn Though Mike did need to tell Lucy about not wanting to be friends, he absolutely did NOT have to do it that way. I think he took it a bit to far with no one wanting to be with her and all her friends would leave the table to join him. He had already made it clear that he didn’t want her around, he was just bashing her after that. Completely unnecessary.
Alice December 28, 2011, 2:12 PM EST.
Oh crap Fridays the last page of the chapter. Oh so much drama, I love it so. The anticipation for Friday is killing me.
Chibiterasu December 28, 2011, 2:17 PM EST.
Maybe she’ll end up in the hospital with hypothermia or pneumonia or something and he’ll feel horrible about telling her to leave when it was pretty much blizzarding outside.
KairaWolf December 28, 2011, 2:18 PM EST.
He hates Lucy right now. She had to know it.
It’ll benefit her in the long run.
Darth GW7 December 28, 2011, 2:19 PM EST.
I hope that when mike leaves the table that he’s gonna walk, turn around and be shocked that no one is following him.everyone is going to be too busy being mad at mike and comforting lucy. Just because he thinks she doesn’t matter, doesn’t mean that everyone else will think that too. lucy is still gonna be everyone else’s friends, no matter what mike thinks.
RandomPanda2 December 28, 2011, 2:27 PM EST.
Freidrich von Wolfegang December 28, 2011, 2:57 PM EST.
Lucy really did have it coming…. but seriously?!?!?! Mikie you cruel cruel son of a cat!!! he went waaaay overboard. you can say you dont like someone, but not beat them emotionally till they puke for paulo’s sake!
Paulosapprentice December 28, 2011, 3:01 PM EST.
Its a shame, but i think mike wont have to leave the table or at least not be the only one leaving, because Lucy will leave the table for sure…
Its obvious that she doesn´t really want to try anymore, all she wants is let him be happy and she obviously believes what Mike said. She will leave the table and probably go with Augustus -.-, the others will try to talk to her but she wont care, she can only listen to Mike… who wont either listen to his friends.
iknowit December 28, 2011, 3:16 PM EST.
For some reason, and I hate to say this, but I feel as though Lucy’s headed either home or to the river… (I hate myself for thinking that!)

ero387 December 28, 2011, 3:30 PM EST.
Mike: *sniff sniff* What’s that smell?
Me: That’s you Mike, you *******
ultimateZ December 28, 2011, 3:38 PM EST.
Lucy, find some new friends, they’re kind of all ****-heads. Daisy’s worthless, Mike hates you, and Paulo has a gf. Leave, and if any of them follow you it was meant to be, if they don’t care enough about you to go after you, then **** them, continue to grow, and find people who aren’t ******** to be friends with.
I feel like the last page will be a dangerous cliffhanger, like her standing near the river. I don’t think December will have a happy ending. Oh Paulo, find your girl.
And can anyone explain to me why Paulo loves Lucy, but would choose Daisy if he had to only save one girl? I personally think that’s retarded. Is it like the Brother Sister kind of connection? Cause he was crying about Lucy even when he saved Daisy on the Ask Roseville High thing. Seriously? Why?
That one bitch December 28, 2011, 3:45 PM EST.
i hope that lucy runs to paulo. please please run to paulo…
you deserve more then mike can offer you, because this is ridiculous.
Gimpy December 28, 2011, 4:03 PM EST.
Oh dear….poor Lucy..she’s so sad…D: But, I respect her decision of not taking the phone, it wouldn’t have done her any good in the long run.
RiverSong December 28, 2011, 4:11 PM EST.
She acted very responsible by throwing away her own vomit and not taking the phone… (even though most people believe she should have taken the phone)
Some things Lucy might do:
1. Run home and let her pets comfort her
2. Run home and lock herself in her room without anybody there to comfort her.
3. Try and commet suicide (jumping in the river?)
4. Run away
5. Run to one (or all) of her friends and tell her she is sorry and let them comfort her. (Cough cough Paulo? Cough Cough)
I do not support any of the fan couples (except probably Daisy and Abby) just in case that Paulo and Lucy comment hit people as though I did. I’m just saying that recently our Little Lucy has been running to Paulo for help and comfort.
Can’t wait for the ending!
megeriffic December 28, 2011, 4:16 PM EST.
@That one batch
He has a deep, complicated relationship that’s too complex for your immature mind to grasp.
Love and Friendship aren’t as simple as you think.

nat December 28, 2011, 4:31 PM EST.
@ Darth GW7 dude chill out it was just a question to be honest i was wondering about that too. its confusing no matter how mature or immature you are. On another noye i really hope this chapter doesnt have a depressing end Lucy is definately not as bad as mike made it seem and she doesnt deserve this. yes she deserved to know the truth- that her behavior can and does hurt others but it is possible to tell someone the truth and not be a total deuche about it at the same time.
lunabee December 28, 2011, 4:39 PM EST.
And now’s when Augustus finds her.. and kills her .n.

Tigerdolphin December 28, 2011, 5:01 PM EST.
It’s weird… I imagined this scene since Michael started yelling at her… her, going home, feeling cold for the first time. Because you guys remember, right? she’s normally inmune to the cold.
V December 28, 2011, 5:03 PM EST.
Aaaah me, how I love this comic.
I really do, despite my want to stay away from shipping, ship Abbey with Daisy, and Lucy with Paulo. The two couples are so sweet together.
theghost December 28, 2011, 5:09 PM EST.
I think Lucy is a pretty cool guy she has no friends and doesn’t afraid of anything.
OneLonelyPickle December 28, 2011, 5:18 PM EST.
ugh ive been a diehard lucyxmike fan but i might have to move to being a lucyxpaulo fan T_T
Nadaz December 28, 2011, 5:22 PM EST.
Lucy’s shivering. Lucy’s never cold with her thick fur and her squirrel tail. This must be symbolic. The shivering is definitely important.
42 December 28, 2011, 5:35 PM EST.
Is she actually shivering when it’s snowing!?
Ben December 28, 2011, 5:42 PM EST.
Or she could be shivering because her emotions are about to explode out of her. For example, she might tell her pets about all this.
N-star December 28, 2011, 5:42 PM EST.
Hopefully someone will talk to them like my friend did.
I had a friend who was an *** just to be an ***.
even crashed my birthday party.
he then told our mutual friend that he did it just to **** me off and our mutual friend replied that he needs to stop being an *** because he doesn’t want to have to choose sides. when he was asked who he would choose if it came down to choosing sides our mutual friend said he would choose the lesser of the two evils which was me.
so ya hopefully someone will do that. maybe Daisy or Tess.
Or maybe David will have one of his moments and be the one who intervenes
Freidrich von Wolfegang December 28, 2011, 5:49 PM EST.
Okay ALL I WANT to know right now was what was in that pink bag : /
treblig December 28, 2011, 5:56 PM EST.
Read the description. It was vomit. |D
Good job Lucy, throwing away your vomit.
SortingItOut December 28, 2011, 6:11 PM EST.
I just hope that after this chapter, things start lookin’ up for Lucy. She needs to realize what Mike said about the others is entirely false.
But that probably wouldn’t be dramatic, so fat chance.
Vigtyr December 28, 2011, 6:14 PM EST.
i love this page, even though you don’t know what is going through Lucy’s mind with any words, you can sure understand what she is feeling by the images. These pages are done with so much emotion that you can actually feel what the characters are feeling. That is why i love this comic so much. (:
Uncompatable December 28, 2011, 6:20 PM EST.
or taeshi could be screwing with our heads. it could be that something is actually in the bag, not the phone obviously, but it could be something symbolic of mike and lucy’s shattered relationship or heck it could be the unfinished essay (in case you forgot they were writing the essay before all this started yet lucy was paper free when she left). i mean throwing away vomit is obvious so why would taeshi feel the need to comment on it? also the bag doesn’t look like it’s tied up, why not? for a plot point, by having the bag untied the contents can fall out when she throws it in thus we’ll see if it was just vomit she threw in the can.
well taeshi’s comment just has me wondering, it seems like start to a NOT! joke. she says this than the next page she goes NOT! maybe i’m reading to deeply into her comment but i’m just getting that vibe from it.
strider December 28, 2011, 6:37 PM EST.
@strider- Or it is vomit.
Maybe if I wanted to prove that I was still a good friend, I would take out my own up-chunks:D
But that might just be me :\
Aglette December 28, 2011, 6:43 PM EST.
I thought the exact same thing… I hope there’s only puke…
boh... December 28, 2011, 7:04 PM EST.
and after all that, after all the insulting words Mike said to her about her being a bad person, Lucy still did the right thing. That’s more then you can say about Mike.
GKIDRULZ December 28, 2011, 7:13 PM EST.
Nobody can be right all the time.
And honestly? It feels like Mike hasn’t been right ever since Acapulco, though he got visibly worse since “Unrequited”.
NoPlayer December 28, 2011, 7:22 PM EST.
Personally, I think that she may have thrown away the phone to prevent contact between Mike and Sandy. However, it is also posdible that it is just puke, or even the unfinished essay. I also have the feeling that Sandy may have manipulated Mike into thinking this way in order to reduce her competition. Most likely this is not the case, but I still plan on seeing what happens.
Rofloragonaflorgan December 28, 2011, 7:35 PM EST.
Did her tail shrink?
I thought it used to be bigger.
Wheatles December 28, 2011, 7:40 PM EST.
I’m glad she didn’t take the phone. Now Mike can’t hold it against her like we worried he could.
Indigo December 28, 2011, 7:49 PM EST.
@Rofl…: Isn’t he holding the phone last page?
Hoheh December 28, 2011, 7:49 PM EST.
Poor Lucy, School’s gonna be hell for her…
Avory December 28, 2011, 7:54 PM EST.
God i love this page. It just speaks volumes to me: the dark night along with the blinding snow all while lucy just throws away the bag full of her emotional turmoil (last bit was gross but you get the point). It makes you wonder what she can do now. Hopefully she doesn’t manage to kill herself in the cold.
dimes should have stores December 28, 2011, 7:54 PM EST.
What the did-dang-doodly is in that bag?!? I thought it might be the phone at first but…Graaaah it should have been the phone! Mike doesn’t need it! Meany McJearkface doesn’t deserve a phone anymore D
Shilowolf December 28, 2011, 8:53 PM EST.
its her barf. atleast, thats what we are supposed to believe.
yup December 28, 2011, 9:06 PM EST.
mike is just a douche, and i think the group will be with lucy, because mike is a dick, also lucy can talk with so she will not be alone for now..
Knight-K December 28, 2011, 9:06 PM EST.
@strider: I think you may be right. The look on her face at panel 5 bothers me… maybe she’s sad because of the bag held something dear to her? Maybe it’s the essay, or… something… dunno, it might just be a bag of vomit.
Maybe the dog/guy/villan pops out before Lucy reaches her home, and Lucy goes missing…. o_o
C: December 28, 2011, 9:13 PM EST.
Mike I hope you get raped with something hard and sand papery!
Poor Lucy I wonder what she’ll do now I hope the group takes her side because Mike doesn’t deserve friends anymore!
Jetta D December 28, 2011, 9:22 PM EST.
i thought Lucy couldn’t get cold in the snow!!! what happened to mastery of the squirrel tail!!!!!!!
Hell In my Clouds December 28, 2011, 9:26 PM EST.
poor lucy… the loneliness she must be feeling now!
gosh.. thats a terrible thing to hear from someone like Mike, how close you were. Well, were “close” to. Guess it really wasn’t like that at all then…:/
great chapter… love it so much~ all the raw feelings, my goodness. This is becoming quite the guilty pleasure >:D
marizella December 28, 2011, 9:32 PM EST.
you know what, something about panels 5-7 irked me too, not only the facial transitions but also the implications of the color scheme. namely lucy becoming darker as the panels progress. i dunno maybe it’s the color transitions but i kept thinking of analogies to star wars/the dark side. that and i kept hearing the “anakin’s betrayal” theme in my head (if you’ve never heard it go to youtube and type in anakin’s betrayal it should be the first video to pop up) when i was reading that part. or maybe i’m just weird? i dunno.
strider December 28, 2011, 9:33 PM EST.
Poor Lucy. She should have taken the phone… or just tell Mike she cried her eyes out when he said, “Your just… no.” Then maybe Mike will know that she REALLY did care or she could have told Mike that she will probaly cry her eyes out again. Now I REALLY hating Mike here.
Bittersweetcandybowl December 28, 2011, 9:55 PM EST.
a quick say, (can’t edit last…)
regarding all the comments saying “F U MIKE” and, “Lucy should have taken the phone!” and etc…
I think its really big of her for not have doing something that would have hurt mike. Even though what had just occurred hurt her. very much…
She probably realized what she had been diong all those years hurt mike… and decided not to add to that pile.
Mike actd the way he did, perhaps because all those years, he built up so much emotion… he couldn’t hold it in anymore. And Sandy added wood to taht fire…
I don’t really blame anyone here. Playing the blame game gets you know where. but maybe some talking from each of them would help tremendously.
marizella December 28, 2011, 9:58 PM EST.
who bets shell just die in the snow?!
yei, one vote for that.
Cata :3 December 28, 2011, 10:01 PM EST.
I saw that this was pg 38 out of 39 and thought “December’s almost over.”
then I realized how well Taeshi timed this arc.
Guest December 28, 2011, 10:17 PM EST.
Oh that’s her vomit.. I seriously thought it was Mike’s phone. xD
Fangirl December 28, 2011, 10:36 PM EST.
You know, because Lucy was the bigger person here, it just makes you sympathize with her more. She didn’t take the phone, she didn’t contact Sandy, she didn’t do any of the nasty things the rest of us would have done to cause ultimate pain and suffering on Mike. This just shows that Lucy is developing into a more mature and kind individual, and Mike is deteriorating into a Sandy-worshiping *******
AlwaysAnon December 28, 2011, 11:06 PM EST.
Alright. Good on her for not taking the phone because I’m not that big of a class act myself; I would have taken the phone and would have dumped it in water if I were in any real assemblage of control actually.
Then again, good on her for taking the vomit out of the house before he’d notice the smell too (again, I wouldn’t have really followed her lead because I’m weird).
Now, the slammed door was a complete liberty and she deserved a little stress relief to be sure. I would have slammed the door too.
This girl…she’s got flaws yes but at least she is good enough to at least try to act civil around the guy. Me? I don’t think that’d happen if it were me. I would have punched him, kicked him, screamed, cried my eyes out, and slammed the door as I left forgetting anything and everything I’d brought with me because I was so upset.
Go Lucy! Go Lucy! Everybody cheer for the girl!
wolfdragonful December 28, 2011, 11:06 PM EST.
Awwww poor Lucy :’( MIKE I HOPE YOU DIE IN A DITCH!!!!
lcexfire12 December 28, 2011, 11:10 PM EST.
For some reason, the song, “Paranoid Android” by Radiohead sort of fits with this chapter. Here, have a listen: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kFTKohJp7dA
There’s even a part where Thom Yorke (lead singer) starts chanting, “the panic, the vomit”, really fitting for this chapter.
Kera December 28, 2011, 11:10 PM EST.
@Kera: I can’t believe I missed that, good call on the song.
Wolfenrir December 28, 2011, 11:17 PM EST.
Chapter close on Friday, huh? It went by fast. I was hoping for some confrontation with Paulo… but it’ll probably happen next chapter.
I jus’ love that guy.
Knowing Taeshi there’s GOTTA be some PauloxLucy action coming~
MissCaitlyn December 28, 2011, 11:37 PM EST.
Now all we need is for her to die in a ditch and all is right with the world!
Donny December 28, 2011, 11:38 PM EST.
Lucy has certainly grown as a person since the first comic I’m proud of her and I hope that mike acts more mature then he is now
The amazing em December 28, 2011, 11:41 PM EST.
Inside the fire should be playing in the background right now. That would set the mood perfectly!
K.R.I December 28, 2011, 11:55 PM EST.
I almost forgot, “When I am king, you will be the first against the wall….” also fits with Mike’s feelings towards Lucy. When he says, “Rain down….rain down…” I can just see Lucy running/walking in the snow with tears welling from her eyes, while Mike’s back at home, talking to Sandy. Someone should make a flash movie animating this chapter with the song playing! (Probably me, if Taeshi will let me. :3) And no probs, Wolf! I like to help!
Kera December 29, 2011, 12:02 AM EST.
I thought she was going to take the phone.
But who cares.

Radiat December 29, 2011, 12:51 AM EST.
Oh gosh, Lucy’s expression in the 7th panel killed me.
dapperLADY December 29, 2011, 1:02 AM EST.
OH, that was her barf! *phew* MAN, I thought she was going to do something DRASTIC! I think this is a sign that she’s finally maturing a bit!
Ud the Imp December 29, 2011, 1:32 AM EST.
Sigh… Ohh Lucy, it’s such a shame to see you like this. I mean, everyone’s had a moment where they thought,” DAMN, My life sucks!” But, hey! Life’s just a piece a **** for most people. Many cannot handle the fact that all of us have to deal with it! Over 75% of the world either commits suicide or is in depression right now. For me, I’m one of those people. For LUCY, she’s one of those people. However…that small fraction that can find true happiness in innocence can truly be a great influence on others. I envy that happiness and how I could ever find it! Well, I just have to say that if you really try, then you WILL find happiness eventually.
Roxas427 December 29, 2011, 1:42 AM EST.
3 December 29, 2011, 2:05 AM EST.
I honestly doubt 75% of the world is depressed…
Lucy, I don’t know if I could do the same thing in your situation. I would hope that I could, I just don’t know.

Oh god emote spam above, oh well, it will be gone soon enough.
S0me001 December 29, 2011, 2:29 AM EST.
Look, Lucy… you messed up, crashed and burnt yourself… bad. What Mike did what called for and in right. I know you’ve done all this wrong and your past hurts. Listen, don’t forget about this moment, but don’t carry it with you everywhere. Leave it behind in the dump. You can chose what becomes of your future and, as much as it hurts, you should resist this and make it your past. Only your past.
Oh, and Mike, what you did is something you should never regret. This whole burning pile is something you need to leave behind in the past, as well as Lucy. Just leave it all behind.
But… I can’t control you either way. I’m just another random person.
Joey December 29, 2011, 2:31 AM EST.
It’s quite simply really. Live, be the better person. Make friends and prove that asshat wrong. If Mike comes crawling back out of guilt(which I doubt) tell him to sod off, you now have new friends and don’t need a soiled emotional blanket.
ArkaniusXII December 29, 2011, 2:35 AM EST.
I’m a tad confused…
I feel bad for Lucy but in a sense Mike is in the right. Put yourself in Sandy’s shoes, she loves Mike… a lot. If you TRULY loved someone, would you put up with them getting their *** kicked by their “friend” on a daily basis? Mike realized how badly he was treated and cut himself off from Lucy. Why hate on him so much? I feel this is justified if you look at it from Sandy’s view point. Only defense is that Mike is kinda derping to the fact that Lucy IS trying to overcome her violent problems but maybe he realized, with Sandy’ s coming, that Lucy really is just trying to get Mike back and is tired of the fact that she CAN’T move on. God I rant to much. Sry if this sounded dumb or stupid or dumb and stupid ~_~

oh god, lucy!
i love you so much, please don’t do anything dangerous!
in fact, if you do anything, inform sandy of how mike has been acting. that way, she can dump is ***. honestly, both you and her can do better.
also, taeshi, i can’t help but feel you have put some of yourself into lucy… and some of some other jerky jerk faces into mike…
Ariel December 29, 2011, 9:48 AM EST.
Ok now I know what is in that bag. Poor Lucy, good thing she is starting to be nice and change for the better, but I wish Mike wasn’t so mean to her and mulch her heart up.
Starkeyblade December 29, 2011, 9:55 AM EST.
Lucy, where’s your winter coat? We’ve got no speck of snow over here so I have an excuse not to wear it but you don’t
Stay warm and get happy,
Sandy December 29, 2011, 10:14 AM EST.
A long December, and there’s reason to believe
Maybe this year will be better than the last
I can’t remember the last thing that you said as you were leavin’

I really, really like Paulo now. And I never really liked him before. Sure he can ACT like a jerk, but when it really matters he’s sweet. Whereas sure Mike can act sweet but when it comes down to it he’s really a jerk.
Kuna December 29, 2011, 12:38 PM EST.
How would this play out if she took the phone?
What would change?

QuakeIV December 29, 2011, 1:46 PM EST.
It would be better now if Lucy just left Mike alone forever and so did everyone else. Let him have Sandy, Lucy have whoever she decides on, and everyone just leave them both alone.
But we can’t have that, can we?
Adrian Fife December 29, 2011, 2:01 PM EST.
@AllStarSoul Mike would be even more mad at her.
Thats pretty much it, its not like Sandy wouldn’t figure it out if she texted her saying she was Mike. I don’t understand why everyone thinks it’s the solution to everyone’s problems.
Emily December 29, 2011, 2:01 PM EST.
aaawww yeaaaah, Paulo is going to get some hot rebound action
thrbl December 29, 2011, 2:20 PM EST.
To keep from proving Mike right, avoiding someone like Paulo, or any other male character in general may be best. She would be best suited to talk to family, Sue, Daisy, or maaaaaybe Abbey cause he might relate with his own problems. I feel though, she is going to make the poor choice and go to Augustus, oh well. I don’t think he’s completely bad, but in the current situation genus far from the healthy choice.

Stop hating On mike please…. He is probably also hurting due to making lucy hate him so she will not see sandy. I also think that mike is mean to lucy because sandy does not like her…
Thats all i wanna say.
Bunny December 29, 2011, 4:05 PM EST.
Still supporting the Mike x Lucy ship.
I think Sandy was jealous of Mike and Lucy’s relationship with one another.

Sanichi December 29, 2011, 5:19 PM EST.
I might probably be stating the obvious here, but I would like to add that in hindsight this outcome was inevitable. Does anyone remember that old chapter in where Mike, Lucy and company went to the movie theater and saw that romantic comedy that had a tragic ending and their observations afterwards? Hell, it was even foreshadowed in the very first chapter that something would go wrong between Mike and Lucy — namely, the photograph —. The only event left before complete uncertainty on where this story is going is Sue’s play. Considering what has happened, I doubt that it will go well, much less it effecting something.
Redd December 29, 2011, 5:43 PM EST.
She is pretty swell, I don’t know if I would have the presence of mind to do the right thing in that situation. Now what Lucy needs to do is go home, surround herself with her pets and family, have hot chocolate, and do fun things to get her mind off of the horror that just happened! And then do work, I suppose, for that abrasive troglodyte.
Ci-chan December 29, 2011, 5:46 PM EST.
I’ve always kind of preferred Mike, but it seems the both of them have seem to gone to a dark place.. I hope that Mike and Lucy can both work on thier negative traits and be happier soon.
Calica December 29, 2011, 6:35 PM EST.
I just started reading the comic a couple weeks ago. I clicked a link and read a few of the current panels, and then I went and started from the beginning. And up until about chapter 55 I was thinking: How the hell did the lucy-mike relationship end up like that?
BTW, we need a mcCain emoticon
Dragon December 29, 2011, 6:38 PM EST.
I’m sorr for both of ‘em. Get over him Lucy! Stop being such an *** Mike!

Nicholas December 29, 2011, 9:23 PM EST.
Heh jeezz..this reminds me of my problem with my ex I’m going through at the moment. So of course I prefer Lucy in this situation!! I hope she makes it out in one piece though.
Lucy really didn’t deserve all of that ******** though! Hope karma bites mike in the *** soon!
LunaBellz December 29, 2011, 10:06 PM EST.
You have to love the sway of the comments. The talk of “She deserved it and he was in the right all along!”(strawman) is surfacing again. Was oddly silent earlier..
Attack when the opposition is trying to recuperate. Simple war tactics.
That bag. There’s something other than vomit in there. Maybe her books? Or the essay? Can’t be the phone, that’s for sure.
Now where is she going?
Subjective (Hope): She’ll run home and let it all out. Or she’ll cry then compose herself (if she can) before heading home.
Objective(?): She’s not going home. Wasn’t the river by the forest? Maybe there. Most likely in her mind she thinks she’s all alone, so she won’t get help from anybody. That leaves out her friends. FFC maybe, since he’s the only non-friend she talks to, but that’s unlikely. Will she run away maybe? I can see that happening, but I don’t know where she’ll go. Maybe she’ll get lost and fall into the hands of Alejandro. That would fit the ending and set up the next chapter for another showdown. Even if she does not get captured now, FFC could alert him to start moving. This is all assuming the author wants to end this thing in the next few chapters.
In order to prolong the angst, Lucy must share it with at least one person. Mike seems too happy to care, so someone has to must sit on the Angst Throne alongside Lucy, but who could it be? (Imagine the cast as the monarchy of different provinces.. That would actually be interesting to see.)
Subjective: As one melodramatic commenter said:
The only person that can save Lucy now… is Lucy.
Only Lucy can bring about her own happy ending!
I’ll now talk out of my ***!!

AnthonyDafox December 29, 2011, 10:35 PM EST.
So…. Taeshi…. was that REALLY vomit in the bag or are you just messing with us?
But anyways i think that Lucy might be really growing from this experience and finding out some of her own limits. While Im NOT trying to say that misery builds character, this has probably been a good learning experience for both mike and lucy. I feel for both of them i really do. On Lucy’s side you have a complete head-over-heels thing going on with Mike while he is being a jerk and on his side he is losing a friend or rather, has just lost a friend who has grown in very LARGE amounts in the right directions and is nothing like she was, say three years ago. Saying all of that to Lucy mustve taken alot for Mike to say as well, i mean he was in tears saying it. But it really must suck big to have the one you love tell you, no SCREAM at you that he hates you. So, thinking about it like that then yeah there may have just been vomit in the bag. (Eww) But on a side note i cannot help but feel like everything is leading up to one big event that will soon take place to end the comic… I hope im wrong. (Oh, and when are we going to see this guy again => <= he said that he would help Lucy should she ever need it and it would seem that she needs his help ALOT right now)

*waits for the hammer*
Never here December 29, 2011, 11:03 PM EST.
Judging by the reaction, I’d say it’s something special that she and Mike shared. Some trinket or some such that was laying around which she’d given him long ago…so this is effectively killing the hope.
That or it’s vomit and I’m reading too much into the emotions. Then again, the over emphasis on said emotions if they just pertain to sick in a bag isn’t exactly fitting.
Either way, trying to maintain a positive outlook. I know it’s an angst comic, but christ. Making me reflect a bit too much on my current relationships.
Stop that, Miss Taeshi. Bad. Bad webcomic artist.

SGRTC January 28, 2012, 8:18 AM EST.
I have to say, it has been quite some time since I found a webcomic late at night and spent all night reading it. It so good, and I love how I can connect with the characters. I will say that so far, December is my favorite chapter of all right now and I feel so much pain for Lucy, even if in a haphazard way, she does deserve a little bit of the treatment she’s getting. Though I agree with Mike on letting Lucy know how he feels, I think he could have gone through with it a lot better, I’ve been through the same exact situation it’s scary. To all the Mike haters out there, though he was harsh about it, he had a valid reason to be as angry as he was.
In any event, to the artist behind this masterpiece, THANK YOU for making such amazing characters for an amazing story!
P.S.- David has to be my all-time favorite character in this comic. He reminds me of an old friend of mine that passed away a few years back. I love it!
IdealistHammer January 28, 2012, 2:58 PM EST.

Dragnite September 6, 2012, 11:50 PM EST.
I’ve, sadly, been in Lucy’s position more or less.
I was violent as a child and especially hard on my (ex) best friend, but I honestly was kidding around and for the longest time thought that because he fought back, or instigated it too sometimes, that it was something we just /did/. Eventually, I stopped being as prone to using my fists on other people (I think around 4th grade), we still wrestled and played around.
But around 9th grade, we sat down, both having something to say. He let me go first. I said I really liked him and would like to go on a date with him, not just hang out. He said that he didn’t return my feelings. He said that he hated me. Then he walked out of my house, told me never to return to his house, and so I never did.
The next day in my locker I found a painstakingly thorough note about every little thing about me that made him hate me. From my personality and beyond. It pretty much said what Mike said at the end, that I am a cruel, self-absorbed b*tch with an increasingly diaphanous cover. That anyone who stuck around for longer than four hours could pick apart that cover and expose my disgusting inner workings.
It’s been a year and I feel his absence heavily. I find myself typing in his phone number, wanting to call or text him, or inadvertently waiting at my locker before lunch or at the end of the day, waiting for him like I used to, but then I remember and I carry on.
Well, I’ve just reopened some still sore wounds publicly, but I needed to say it.
Meredith March 2, 2013, 4:05 PM EST.
Well, I’m sad to say it but… She did the right thing.
Why Lucy!? Why didn’t you give into the Final Fantasy Side!?
