Oh, come on! You just HAVE to keep delaying it, don’t you? :/ Oh well, the truth will come soon enough! Meanwhile, the play seems to be focused on making some brother-sister love happen at the end, which would make sense, considering Sue’s…

Planning. :)

Ow…Nice use of cliff hangers. I sorta envision Troll face on Taeshi right about now. lol

Now seeing as how in the play the little baby girl is being take away and hinting that she is to be cursed, and me assuming that Lucy will play as an older version of said child, it sounds fitting for her. Nice little connections there. That is if she is playing the part of that child.

I can wait a little longer before Lucy’s performance. I think i’m the only one that is glad to be watching more of the play instead of Paulo and Lucy’s drama. Also, look at the expressions of pain at having to give away their child… this is incredibly sad ._.

WTF! I am actually really offended! How did you get I don’t like Lucy or respect? She is favorite character and I love her :)
You completely miss the whole point of my argument with strider. I was pointing out how Lucy LOOKED DEPRESSED in Panel 1 and 2. And how in Panel 5 SHE LOOKED LIKE PAULO’S fantasy! <~~~ That disgusting smut is NOT WHAT I think about LUCY! It would be **** in Paulo’s fantasy!
“IF anything we see in panel 1 and 2 is she is depress or at least sad. And in Panel 5 she isn’t sad at all! That is a HUGE abnormality!” <~~ Did you even read this? Like you didn’t even read half of what I typed! I am sorry to rage like this but I feel pretty offended right now. Actually I feel hurt that you didn’t even read all of my comment ._. ._. ._.

So the female lead is the an Oracle eh?
Is it the lighting or is that awesome glove Lucy is wearing. Lol like usual good olde Taeshi scene changed on us XD Oh we love Taeshi you keep us hooked! ;)

Well despite the lack of resolve which is literally killing me at the moment, this is a pretty nice page. Your art has evolved a LOT over the past few months and I can’t help but come back for more every update. You’re quite a brilliant writer taeshi. Not gonna lie. However I’m a bit interested the play a little bit. I find it sort of interesting the positions both I the infants are in, it sort of reminds me of mike and Lucy. Mike is on top of the world (blessed) and Lucy is pretty much down in the dumps (cursed… You probably figured out what I meant, but clarification is always nice) on top of that, art change! OoO lol. I know it’s the set, it’ just different.

@TheRealSomeone(akaSomeone: I have been reading each and every one of your comments and while I like several of them there are still a few that upset me.

“@supertails19
Not to be rude but you missed the whole point of my comment.
I believe the “Let’s Make out” is a daydream not the whole chapter O.o. But why would she tell him to get out? He loves and its pretty obvious even to our poor depressed kitten :(
I think she is telling him to get out because of what Mike said.
-She believes Mike is a jerk to her because she is terrible person!
-Mike is jerk because of her, is basically what Mike told her.
She obviously has feeling for Paulo and doesn’t want to see him hurt. SO She is telling him to get out because she believes she is this terrible who will ruin Paulo’s life just like she “ruined” Mike’s.
^I Say that based on the 1st Two panels of this page. You may disagree, but I do want to get the point of my comment(trying not to be rude), and at least consider it as possibility. <~~~ I mentioned early she wants him out because she doesn’t want to “feed” off of him like she “fed” off of Mike. I said that and you kind of shot it down(that is why I said I think I am right). Now that I think about it more I think that is was really going on her poor depressed head :(” -TheRealSomeone(akaSomeone

Read from “-She believes Mike is a jerk to her because she is terrible person” and stop when you reach “I mentioned early she wants him out because she doesn’t want to “feed” off of him like she “fed” off of Mike.”

Explain to me your reason for saying this because there is clearly something I am missing :question:.


“But because she is depressed she could be wanting to make out to enjoy something in her life before she ends it after the play.” -TheRealSomeone(akaSomeone

Lucy is not going to end it and quit talking about it. I am sorry for making you upset but I cried after I read that. At this rate I think i’m actually going to have to skip your comments from now on unless you can please explain what you meant ;_;.

@supertails19
What that all means, I believe Lucy wants Paulo to leave and to stay out of her life. That explains why she shuts everyone out, because she feels Mike’s rage in “December” is completely her fault. That is I am trying to say, it is a possibly that Lucy is telling Paulo “Get Out!” is because she doesn’t want turn him into a security blanket and CLING to him and FEED off of him(cause she is a parasite right?) feed is a metaphor I guess…
I THINK she believes that if she let’s Paulo into her life it will be like Mike in volume I happy and such. BUT she believes, because of what Mike said, that she is cold and selfish parasite who will end up abusing Paulo just like she “abused” Mike.
Umm I want to say this without trying to be rude… but I am lost.

This ultimately is the point I want to get across:~~>Either she wants Paulo to leave because she doesn’t trust him OR She is afraid she will “hurt” him LIKE she “hurt” Mike.<~~
If that doesn’t make sense to you… then well I am stumped. Maybe I am stupid and/or bad at communication? I thought I was being clear but maybe it’s not: you’re not understanding what I am saying. Maybe it’s: I am not understanding what I am typing? GOD I am so lost! ._.


@supertails
Quote:“But because she is depressed she could be wanting to make out to enjoy something in her life before she ends it after the play.” -TheRealSomeone(akaSomeone
Looking back on that sounds pretty dumb and well it is sadly the only thing “I” can think of that would explain panel 5(page 9) not being a daydream? To be honest I really hope panel 5(page9) is a daydream… or if not I can’t think of any good reason why Lucy would want to make out.

@strider
Panel 5 is a daydream! Lucy is not really telling Paulo “Let’s Make out”! And if it isn’t a daydream then I’ll bake you a pie and a cake! Those eyes are seductive.. Well they look seductive to me. And Lucy isn’t a ***** so Panel5(page 9) looks so out of place. I reread my comment and that smut I wrote makes me vomit! I was trying to think like perverted teenage boy would. I KNOW I took it WAY to far. For that I am sorry ._.

Comment ID #240141

@therealsomeone,
Interesting, because we see the same image and the same detail of the image, but our conclusions are different. You see her eyes and see seduction. I see her eyes and see indifference. well since I can’t guess why you see it that way i’ll explain my viewpoint. Well at least as best I can as it’s the art of seduction not the science of seduction. Lucy’s eyes lack the gleam of life, her face is of a neutral indifferent state. Someone who is being seductive at least in minimal capacities show interest towards the other party. Their eyes will, how can I explain this, gain a “come hither” gleam to them. Lucy’s eyes lack that trait or any trait for that matter. That’s about the best I can explain it.

Also don’t worry about that comment too much, I assumed A) you were a kid who didn’t understand the world or B) you were being snarky. Either way, it didn’t bother me and I was just being a bit of a smart @$$

But every walrus has its blubber. One would be used in lantern oil and the other would be used in Crisco. There was only one choice: make lantern oil and Crisco at the same time. Wait, that’s two choices.
I hope the oracle took the cursed sibling, raised that sibling to be a super villain, who then took over the world and forced everyone to eat raw cauliflower…the horror.
You know, do you ever think that the oracle might pick up the wrong sibling? What happened if the sibling the oracle took was just some average nose-picking wanker, while the real hero and villain were somewhere else. I smeeell commmedddy.
Also, why is everyone jumping to the conclusion that “they” made out? For all we know, Lucy might’ve kicked him in the berries or Paulo might’ve just walked out of the room. Also, if they do make it out, they just might be kissing, not banging. I mean seriously, before a play in a room anyone could walk into? lol, talk about getting your heat on, damn they must’ve really wanted it at that point.
Also, this isn’t a sad play and I hate to call it, but it’s a cliche play. Can somebody say Star Wars, please?
And you know what would really be funny? If the oracle set both the babies on fire. That’d be HILARIOUS. So much for your hero, your villain, and your prophecy that just went down the toilet. Nothing to see here common folk, move it along, no prophecy here. Keep tilling the land or whatever the hell it is you folk do.

The eyes make lack some life but HA! there it is! It is a daydream. And it’s the eyebrows and eyes that make it seductive. Seductive is not the right word… but I can’t think of another word. And who says “Let’s Make out” and is indifferent? I mean really?

@strider: It doesn’t really take much to screw with my head :nope:. Emotions are so hard to deal with. Anyways, i’m not even going to think about all the ways the drama could turn into a really bad dream. I would rather not have a nightmare so i’ll avoid thinking about what could go wrong in the play and in Lucy’s life… well at least until I understand what happened last update.

@TheRealSomeone(akaSomeone: No, you didn’t fail it just took me a while to respond. Your explanation cleared up a lot of the confusion I had related to your earlier comments and it actually does make sense. I think I was the one that was not understanding your comments, I apologize for making you upset.

“Either she wants Paulo to leave because she doesn’t trust him OR She is afraid she will “hurt” him LIKE she “hurt” Mike.” -TheRealSomeone(akaSomeone: Wow, both of your theories are good… hmm, I think the first one seems best because Lucy has a history of not trusting others and when Paulo finally gained her trust, he kind of threw it away in Back and Forth. Paulo might have gained back some of her trust with Carry Me and Piece of Cake, but overall it might not be enough for Lucy to trust him to be a good boyfriend.

The second one would only make sense if there was zero doubt inside Lucy’s mind that the others would leave unless she did something extreme. I understand she has been depressed lately and I know that she believes what Mike said to her in December, but did she really ignore the actions made by Augustus and Paulo?

supertails19 March 4, 2013, 1:50 AM EST.

Comment ID #240146

It’s all relative, to me a 19 year old IS a kid (heck I was on my first deployment when I was 19 and that was, shoot, a bit over a couple decades ago). As for someone who can say “let’s make out” and be indifferent, someone who’s messing with you or someone (like others have theorized) who’s testing someone. That said you have to remember Lucy’s damaged goods right now, she could be on a pseudo auto pilot or it could be any number of things. I’m just saying that it does happen and isn’t outside the realm of possibility. Further, to me, her face from my viewpoint doesn’t say “I want you” it’s more “meh, whatever”.

Or This:

@TheRealSomeone(akaSomeone and @strider: When Lucy said “Let’s make out” to Paulo, I just couldn’t believe Lucy would do that for an other reason than Lucy wanting to give Paulo what he wants so he could leave and she could get ready for the play… that or Paulo imagined Lucy saying that one line. Uhh, sorry if my viewpoint upsets either of you.

@TheRealSomeone(akaSomeone: “The second one would only make sense if there was zero doubt inside Lucy’s mind that the others would leave unless she did something extreme. I understand she has been depressed lately and I know that she believes what Mike said to her in December, but did she really ignore the actions made by Augustus and Paulo?” -supertails

I was talking about the second theory(right after the OR) “Either she wants Paulo to leave because she doesn’t trust him OR She is afraid she will “hurt” him LIKE she “hurt” Mike.” -TheRealSomeone(akaSomeone

I should have been more clear about the actions of Augustus and Paulo: Augustus gave advice to Lucy repeatedly one of which kept her from “giving up” http://www.bittersweetcandybowl.com/c68/p10.html I am thankful for that even if it was harsh the advice was needed. http://www.bittersweetcandybowl.com/c73/p14.html Just Augustus running to Lucy’s side when he thought she was going to do something crazy. Final Fantasy Cat sure know how to be neutral ;).

Paulo had to try and get past Lily, sneak into the house, go up the stairs to Lucy’s room just to see a glimpse of her, and then having Jordan push him out of the house http://www.bittersweetcandybowl.com/c70/p16.html at least his visit wasn’t pointless. Also, here we have Paulo being awesome again http://www.bittersweetcandybowl.com/c65/p6.html 8-).

I guess the point I am getting at is: Actions speak louder than words… or maybe having somebody close by is better than being alone. Uhh I think i’m too tired to continue so goodnight.

Seeing Lucy in that gray robe…

Call it a wild guess, but it seems that Lucy is playing the part of the ‘cursed’ sibling.

How… fitting.
Edit: for those of you who might think the ‘Oracle’ is Lucy, just take note of the color of the hand reaching out from the robe.

You know, I actually would really like to see what kind of storyline and play Sue worked so hard to bring onto the stage.

Skygaze March 4, 2013, 9:57 AM EST.

Comment ID #240175

Hmm, definitely seems like Lucy is the cursed sibling, but she was also wearing robes similar to those of the oracle. Maybe the ‘curse’ is the power to tell the future thus making her the next oracle? Its a mixed blessing at best.

Considering how Sue strong armed Lucy and Mike into the roles she must think something will come out of this, I’m honestly more interested in the play than with what is happening with Paulo and Lucy right now.

@supetails19
I actions of PAulo and Augustus were clear. But I wasn’t sure which your were talking about XD Ok I undertand by “The second” you were referring to my 2nd theory.

@its cruel whinners
It a Monday update check in two days… And just imagine if this was Friday update.

Lol I want to see Paulo fly across the after Lucy kicks him XD
Or the whole audience gets to hear “WHAT THE **** PAULO! GET OUT!” XD
What if the Oracle took the “great hero” and left the couple with the cursed child?
This still screams Rapunzel from “Tangled” The “cursed” child may not be cursed but has like magic powers. OH GOD Lucy is sorcerer! Trained by the evil “oracle” and Mike out legendary hero must try to “drag” his sister from her “evil ways” LOL Bravo Sue Bravo *stands up and claps*

One sibling was deeply cursed and forced to bare a great burden, while the other sibling was destined to become a great hero. Little did they know that the hero would be the one to be saved.

Whatever Sue has planned might have one sibling saving the other and hopefully by the end of the play, that will bring them closer together.

I see what you did there Taeshi and Sue
Mike is super popular all(some don’t want to admit it Mad Lucy ) girls want to date him aww so dreamy. And he has life made.
Lucy is treated ****** as a child, deal with 97% of guys hitting on her, love her best friend he hates her.

Mike even Sue thinks you got it made :/

I am with supertails19, I did not want to see Paulo and Lucy make out because I am stuck on the sinking U.S.S. Mike X Lucy, and I want to see how the play is going, but where is Mike?

Devin March 4, 2013, 7:38 PM EST.

Comment ID #240201

Mother can’t be Mike, Mike’s eyes are a brighter shade of green. Oracle can’t be Lucy because she is either kissing Paulo or kicking his ***, and the hand is a different color than that of Lucy’s. Oracle can’t be Mike because in Greek myths the Oracle is always a girl and the coat color is different.

@PepeLePew: I don`t think that`s David. He has chocolate brown fur, and the color on the hand looks too light to belong to him. If I had to guess, I`d say that hand belongs to Sue. I`ll bet Sue came in and saw Palo and Lucy kissing, grabbed the cloak and ran on stage to save the play. XD

@supertails19: no, you’re not the only one. I wanted to see more of the play as well. c:

@Legion: Yes, Veronica is a brilliant writer and artist. Now if only we could figure out a way to get her to believe it. Something memorable that will prove to her that she is well liked by hundreds of people and that we are being honest when we tell her how amazing we think she is #^_^#.

@Blaze33405: Here’s another connection: The baby boy will become a great hero, assuming Mike plays as an older version of him then it would make sense. Mostly because Mike is athletic, fast, and can be quite heroic in certain situations :x.

@redcaffeine: Yeah, Paulo is going to be one upset cat. With this play plenty of tears will be shed… and not just from heartbreak. I really hope I am wrong and this all ends well, but it just doesn’t seem likely :(.

@SXR123: A sonic underground themed play in BCB? Seems very unlikely… I think Sue would try being more original than that. Actually, it would explain why she wanted Paulo to be in the play as well. 2 brothers and 1 sister, they don’t always get along but they will always be there for each other 8-D.

@Marissa: The person under the robe could be a new side character, flower girl(that would be a surprise), or the most likely one being Sue(which you already mentioned). I think Sue would have given herself a part in the play as the Oracle and Lucy could be her trainee 8-).

Also, I am glad you are here to enjoy the play that Sue worked so hard on :).

@Marissa and supertails19
Sue has a more tan than brown fur. So we can rule her out. And since the oracle doesn’t speak it could be a guy under for all we know. I think the oracle is fill of **** and the “cursed” baby is destined to be more powerful than the other baby. And the oracle plans to use the “cursed” baby as slave/weapon I feel it’s over used yet I can’t think of any stories like that.

OH I am the only one wondering where the hell is the boat? And when does Mike start couching baseball? Or teach sword fighting? And who is Ben?
I haven’t forgotten Taeshi!

@RC it’s so obvious. The main characters in the play are mike an Lucy. This is a scene showing their birth where one of them must be given up to this reaper like figure all rumplestiltzken style. Lucy is wearing the black robe because I’m guessing the person who takes her away a baby raises her to be like him/her.

Ven March 5, 2013, 8:31 AM EST.

Also, the reaper did not say which one would become the hero and which one would be cursed. I’m calling it right now. The girl is gonna be the hero and the boy is gonna be cursed. Plot twist! The one the parents pick to save will be cursed!

@supertails I agree. She deserves a lot more recognition than she gets. It’s be nice if she believed us too. However I think she knows we like it because if we didn’t, we wouldn’t be here. And considering this is a very well known web comic, I would say that she is a very successful writer. Kudos Veronica. May the next (70 something or other) chapters bring you triple the readers and people who comment.
