HMMM THIS LOOKS FAMILIAR…
First once again.
Sue you are on bad *** play writer
Lucy looks happy, but the last one looks like she is nervous. And scared. Mike she is desperate to be your friend, please Mike.
She looks like she really wants to know what Mike thinks. She seems to want to know if he liked it. I feel she only cares what he thinks. Mike you hold the key, you going to keep her locked in her depression or are you going to set her free.
I have this GUT feeling on Monday Mike is going to kiss her.
Mike don’t fight it. You still love her admit it.
I see what you did there! It does.
TheRealSomeone(akaSomeone April 12, 2013, 12:00 AM EST.
I still think she should have kept the Power of the Mighty Breeze. That way, she can pelt Mike with small pebbles whenever she feels like it. Still, though, I think this actually reflects how Lucy and Mike became friends. Lucy was all alone and everyone shunned her. Then, Mike came along and showed her compassion and she completely changed. (Then, of course, Sandy came along and Mike ignored Lucy and she got all depressed and learned to never put her trust into another being.) Also, I don’t think this is the end of the play. It has way too happy of an ending.
Either way though, I’m pretty sure Lucy’s dead inside. I mean, look into those eyes. There’s nothing there, and while they are a great shade of blue, they are completely lifeless. In the last image, she also has a really tired, depressed looking expression on her face.
And I’m still curious as to what her family was talking about back in Ten Seconds to Midnight. It seemed so important to the story and it just hasn’t come into play yet.
Nikita April 12, 2013, 12:00 AM EST.
Ah. So it must’ve been part of the play; her eyes are still dead.
@Taeshi: When can I expect to receive my copy of Starting Over? I sent in a letter back in January.
Comrade April 12, 2013, 12:00 AM EST.
Man…It is really great seeing Lucy this happy. I’m hoping it is more than just acting.
And even if it is just acting, it still makes me happy she isn’t so depressed that is impossible for her to do. Instead of being infinite depressed Lucy pants.
Crabmaster April 12, 2013, 12:00 AM EST.
NOW KISS. Nobody cares that its incest in the play. JUST DO IT.
Tom-the-Foxey April 12, 2013, 12:01 AM EST.
Empty eyes, I see.
Hullo April 12, 2013, 12:01 AM EST.
The eyes . Wait what if that sparkle in her eyes was her child-like innocence and it is lost forever . I’m still trying to figure which Disney movie this reminds me of.
supertails19 April 12, 2013, 12:01 AM EST.
She still looks sad… :
Julia KaNeko April 12, 2013, 12:01 AM EST.
And then Mike’s character gets the curse. Or not. I dunno anymore but this is good ****.
etyb April 12, 2013, 12:01 AM EST.
Wait, a GOOD ending? How… Why…
What is this, I don’t even…
My stormdar has failed me…
Ditto April 12, 2013, 12:01 AM EST.
Dear God. Lucy Is one hell of an actress.
Mirasia April 12, 2013, 12:01 AM EST.
Novelboy April 12, 2013, 12:01 AM EST.
I wonder .. if there is going to be a twist? Probably not. hHAHa.
Box April 12, 2013, 12:01 AM EST.
Dead eyes again! Ahh!! She looks so tired and beat down, it’s heartbreaking to have that text over it.
Hazel April 12, 2013, 12:02 AM EST.
God this gets more awkward with every update
And the soulless eyes are back…
Not that i blame her, this must be really awful for her…
Order_66 April 12, 2013, 12:02 AM EST.
Her open eyes in the last panel look desperate.
Also, it is audacious, not audatious
totally THAT person April 12, 2013, 12:03 AM EST.
Cutest. Page. EVAH.
Foolishprototype April 12, 2013, 12:04 AM EST.
Oh no, Lucy has two clones.
asdf April 12, 2013, 12:04 AM EST.
Lucy looks scared in the last pose. She’s a great actor, to act past what she’s gone through lately, but you can tell that she’s still nervous/frightened to be around him. The play is probably helping her to focus off that, but she’ll probably be a nervous wreck and locked in the stage room after the scene ends. It wouldn’t surprise me if that happened.
I hope Mike notices that she’s not all there yet.
Purple Haze April 12, 2013, 12:04 AM EST.
Why those eyes! I saw them once I don’t want to see them again.
Scarlet April 12, 2013, 12:05 AM EST.
The very last Lucy drawing on this page.
She looks like she’s about to break down and cry
Rioo April 12, 2013, 12:06 AM EST.
This has got to be the most awkward play for them.
Now let Paulo hop on stage to carry Lucy away to Never Land!
KitKatMuffin April 12, 2013, 12:07 AM EST.
Well they can’t really be in love, because they’re siblings, so…
Yxela007 April 12, 2013, 12:07 AM EST.
I have a feeling she’s scripted to dance with him… Dat foreshadowing Vero.
I’m going to keep mention this as long as it’s apparent. Dem empty eyes.
Follarch April 12, 2013, 12:09 AM EST.
Can only imagine that both of them are feeling extremely uncomfortable right now. Especially Lucy, with that look in her eyes on the last clone. Mike may be more mesmerized more than anything.
I just have that ‘wait for it’ feeling of dread.
Fenfir April 12, 2013, 12:09 AM EST.
She’ll probably snap from all the stuff the narrator is saying.
Demetrois April 12, 2013, 12:12 AM EST.
@TheRealSomeone(akaSomeone: 3 Lucy’s all in one panel… enjoy .
@Tom-the-Foxey: No, If Mike and Lucy kiss on stage they will ruin Sue’s play. Now if they kissed backstage that would have some interesting results.
@Ditto: Your stormdar has not failed you, it was just a little bit off… by about a few pages. Don’t worry the drama will return soon enough. I am not sure why you see that as a good thing, but whatever floats your boat.
@Yxela007: Ever heard of brotherly or sisterly love? No, i’m not talking about incest .
@fenfir: I’m dreading how this will all end. I’m trying to be optimistic, but this just screams trouble to me. If not during the play then right after it .
supertails19 April 12, 2013, 12:13 AM EST.
Wow Sue I didn’t know Sue was one for such corny stuff. You’d thinks she’d have pretty high standards for entertainment.
shaaa April 12, 2013, 12:15 AM EST.
All the Lucys for me <3333
Thaedael April 12, 2013, 12:17 AM EST.
I have this gut feeling that yours is wrong. Mike may be impressed, but no more. I imagine he’ll want little to do with her immediately after the play.
Darn my pesky pessimism.
etyb April 12, 2013, 12:18 AM EST.
i wonder if he will notice how broken she is… or he could be really dense
imaginative monsters April 12, 2013, 12:18 AM EST.
dammit sue, that’s right up there with the power of heart in terms of cliché deus ex machina’s. I thought you were better than that.
strider April 12, 2013, 12:19 AM EST.
I imagine after the play
*Mike is back stage dressed*
Sue: Mike that was amazing you did a wonderful job!
Mike: Thanks Sue
Sue: Have you seen Lucy?
Mike: No I haven’t.
Sue: *walks off*
Mike: *turns around and looks at Lucy*
Lucy: You did really good Mike
Mike: Yeah, you too.
Mike: Yeah, thanks for rehearsing with me.
Lucy: Your welcome.
Mike: *rubs his head*
Lucy: *walks off wanting to get out of sight before she breaks down*
Mike: Lucy? Are you ok?
OH GOD I can’t write anymore I am starting to cry
Screw the play, Lucy needs some love!
“I imagine he’ll want little to do with her immediately after the play.”-etyb
edit: Good that is what I am hoping for! Maybe he will do more!
Also don’t call me “someone” there is another commenter who goes by “Someone” I used to go by that until he/she came along.
DEVIN! I AM NOT WRITING A PORNO! DO NOT COMPARE MY FANFIC TO A PORNO IT IS RATED T!
Sorry about that rage
I have fallen behind, it’s not done. I am going for a long time. Like until high school for their offspring. Maybe up to chapter 100 or so. I am only at 28 and I am not even a 1/3 done. I write their lives through senior year and the years of college.
TheRealSomeone(akaSomeone April 12, 2013, 12:19 AM EST.
@therealsomeone. Your story Love and Hatred kickes Fifty Shades of Grey’s ***. I can’t do PM because there is something wrong with something, I don’t know jack about computers, I have yet to read your other one but are you going to continue Love and Hatred? Please do, it is my Mike X Lucy dreams come true, sorry if that sounds perverted, but seriously that is how I want BCB to end with Mike and Lucy loving each other more than anyone else. Also I think Mike might be having second thoughts about what he said to Lucy back in “December”
Devin April 12, 2013, 12:20 AM EST.
Sanchan April 12, 2013, 12:21 AM EST.
Meaning he’ll have little desire to talk with her outside of bland compliments like “good job” or “great singing”.
etyb April 12, 2013, 12:23 AM EST.
This is the first page I’ve commented on!
I don’t think she’s gonna make it through this play, I sense an emotional rupture ahead.
Trubeque April 12, 2013, 12:23 AM EST.
It’s not really a good thing, it’s just that I’ve grown accustomed to BCB being one failed Hope Spot after another.
Now when something good actually goes through, it just feels… weird.
Ditto April 12, 2013, 12:24 AM EST.
Wait… “audatious”? I’ve never seen that word before… are you sure it’s not audacious?
(I’m sorry for being a grammar nazi)
I do love Lucy’s dress though…
Just-A-Lurker April 12, 2013, 12:24 AM EST.
It was Mike who saved Lucy from isolation when she was little.
What do you mean by you can’t PM? Do you have Fanfic account? I don’t have BCB forum account.
The word you used does fit perfectly, it is one letter changed. I misspell words a lot all the time. So don’t feel bad Taeshi
One: Calm WAY DOWN!
Two: No PauloxLucy, only MikexLucy!
Three: Taeshi is building but the suspense! Lucy will be happy in the end *pulls out chain gun* Right Taeshi?
That is mean! I can throw tomatoes at you?
“Also, time for a warning on my second story: It makes use of cliffhangers just like my first story and I think it is darker because I am experimenting with fight scenes, hospital scenes, and plenty of stuff that will take me time to do properly in my head before I feel it is worthy of being typed. At this rate I will have a headache and so will the characters”-supertails19
The only headache your giving my is cliffhanging it’s posting
I see you have a lot faith in Paulo
TheRealSomeone(akaSomeone April 12, 2013, 12:31 AM EST.
Just a small word of advice
STOP RUINING LUCY’S LIFE OR SHE WILL PUNCH YOU, I AM DEAD SERIOUS STOP RUINING IT
YOU’RE BREAKING THE FANS HEARTS JUST LET HER HAVE HER PERFECT LIFE WITH PAULO
LUCY I PROMISE IF YOU REGAIN YOUR LIFE FILLED EYES I WILL KICK MIKE IN THE NUTS AND MAKE YOU A HAPPY SANDWICH
N-master April 12, 2013, 12:32 AM EST.
I’d throw tomatoes at the stage.
Shiloh April 12, 2013, 12:33 AM EST.
I actually find Lucy on the right to be a little disturbing. It would be subtle if we didn’t already know there was something wrong.
Cyph April 12, 2013, 12:33 AM EST.
I’d hit that.
The Pornographer April 12, 2013, 12:36 AM EST.
Have you seen all the women Paulo has been with?
I guarantee you that she would not be happy after a certain point. He will get bored and move on. He felt as if he “truly loved” Tess the same way as he did Lucy, sooo… See where I am going with this?
And I am not saying that I support Lucy and Mike (though I would prefer seeing that as a coupling because it would be much better for Lucy), because Mike seems to be living happily.
But what I am saying is that in the Paulo-Lucy relationship, Lucy would be getting the short end of the stick and Paulo would eventually (being the manslut he is) move on, once again hurting Lucy in a way she doesn’t deserve.
Rylan April 12, 2013, 12:37 AM EST.
@N-master i think you should switch to decaf, the cast aren’t real and how the story goes is up to the creators,(taeshi and suitcase) threats don’t seem to be a smart way to motivate them to continue, let alone take the story how you want it to go.
(if your just joking my apologies it’s hard to determine when someones joking without being able to see or hear them.)
nightarix April 12, 2013, 12:38 AM EST.
Oh, Lucy, your eyes…
Wat April 12, 2013, 12:41 AM EST.
Lucy is certainly the shining star in this play, even if her eyes (at the right side of the final panel) still send alarm bells in me. She’s gorgeus yes, but the fact that she’s possibly faking this still depresses me a bit
Subaru April 12, 2013, 12:41 AM EST.
Your comic is simply the best!!!!!!!!!
vale April 12, 2013, 12:52 AM EST.
looks like she should be singing this song
kitsu April 12, 2013, 12:59 AM EST.
Those dead eyes make the last panel rather creepy/off-setting more than anything.
Skygaze April 12, 2013, 12:59 AM EST.
Now I’m wondering if the play is hinting that; to break Lucy’s depression, Mike needs to show some kindness. …maybe I’m over analyzing things again.
Marissa April 12, 2013, 1:06 AM EST.
I think you head the nail right on the head.
I am really got the feeling she is wanting Mike’s approval, and hopes he liked it.
TheRealSomeone(akaSomeone April 12, 2013, 1:08 AM EST.
I sense a breakdown and a fist to Mikes face from Paulo if this continues.
xom April 12, 2013, 1:13 AM EST.
I bet Carter’s in the audience with a huge *****
Whimsicott April 12, 2013, 1:21 AM EST.
Could Mike be all starry eyed because he is major trying not to claw Lucy’s face off, or because he has had a change in character?
Is Lucy in kahoots with Augustus? (I hope so… but I like paulo too..)
silveryogurt April 12, 2013, 1:26 AM EST.
woah.. cant wait for monday
sleepy-teen April 12, 2013, 1:34 AM EST.
@therealsomeone. No I do not have a fabfic account as I said something is screwed up with my service or something, besides I have never been a social person so I never had a reason to get accounts for email,PMs or anything like that, and on that half a story I wrote on the last page I am having trouble trying to find words the cast would say in that situation. So instead of today, I will probability finish it sometime this week end, or at least I would but I have to got to Nimicolin, I don’t know if I spelled that right, Woodlands for a skeet competition so I will only have Saterday to work on it.
Devin April 12, 2013, 1:41 AM EST.
This is what happens when Sue writes words bigger than Vero can handle!
Just kidding. An audacious correction has been made.
SuitCase April 12, 2013, 1:46 AM EST.
the empty eyes are back sniff sniff, but even in that state, i can say that lucy is one hell of an actress. especially doing it a corny scene with that dick.. i mean with mike, hope the play goes well
and reading a few pages before but daisy eyes are so puuure :3, it’s like they’re the complete opposite of the ones lucy have now, i hope someday lucy can have the same eyes (especially if it is with paulo)
Knight-A April 12, 2013, 2:37 AM EST.
“Also don’t call me ‘someone’ there is another commenter who goes by ‘Someone’ I used to go by that until he/she came along.”
My bad. I was typing on my phone at work and didn’t think to try copy/pasting your whole handle.
“edit: Good that is what I am hoping for! Maybe he will do more!”
etyb April 12, 2013, 3:01 AM EST.
Another beautiful page, Taeshi!
Also, totally off subject, but when will you be updating the “About” section of this site? Surely some updates are in order?
Gabria93 April 12, 2013, 3:03 AM EST.
“…All it took to break the curse was love.”
Yeah, this is definitely a high school play.
“As is so often in life”, those who need love often don’t get love (I mean for crying out loud, Lucy has been banging her head against a wall for how long to get Mike’s loving attention, only to fail?)
Let it roll, Luce. The more fire you throw around the worse it gets and the more likely people will just ignore you (if they’re feeling bold they might attack, but that’s always a suicide run).
Like some stupid saying probably goes: don’t go to them, let them come to you. Have to wait for a bit and if they still stray for a while, just let it roll and don’t let it bother you. People used to fight with swords in the hay-day (back when people used to back up their posturing with actual fighting), but people like to fight with hearts in this feely century.
If what others do doesn’t get to your feelings, you are golden, meh friend. The rest will come of its own accord.
Blank On Purpose April 12, 2013, 3:32 AM EST.

My Grant April 12, 2013, 4:15 AM EST.
I dunno about “dead” eyes. They don’t seem dead to me…rueful, perhaps, but not dead. A broken expression from a girl believing herself broken.

lalalady April 12, 2013, 4:43 AM EST.
Even though the story is pretty corny, I just find this scene so sweet! ;____; I have a feeling that Lucy or Mike, or even both, are going to break in tears… Happy kind of ones, if my hopes are true. :’3 excuse me but i have to go and get some tissues and quick—-
Furball April 12, 2013, 4:49 AM EST.
Lucy looks really good in that dress. I wish the cast would wear clothes more often.
Fluffy April 12, 2013, 5:14 AM EST.
@ Fluffy I vote for that too.
In other news, why do her eyes in the last panel look like that. Major psycho-chick vibe! They just scream “When this is over, you’re dead!”
Monas April 12, 2013, 5:20 AM EST.
This page is the continuation of the page before. “Just beautiful”.

@therealsomeone. Sorry. I only read like five chapters of Grey. But on the fanfic site it was rated MA, mature adults, and when I said I was a failed author I meant that I could not even finish writing the first chapter. Yeah I could not even come up with the main character’s last name let alone try to get I published. Also I am still trying to be optimistic about what may happen after the play. I will try to get out the rest of my hope/idea/theory/story/mini fanfic some time this weekend or next week.
Devin April 12, 2013, 6:21 AM EST.

is it just me or so lucy’s eyes seem very dark
and not like even the paints she used but
she looks scared, dark.

No no no no! Crap! Mike, ignore her beauty and elegant movements!
@N-master Happy sandwich?
Kindle Kat April 12, 2013, 6:47 AM EST.
Lucy’s eyes are still blank, that’s too bad. Lucy is still feeling a bit tired and depressed, I guess all the drama is really too much.
Meow April 12, 2013, 8:43 AM EST.
Lucy seemed okay until she opened her eyes. She still doesn’t look to good…
MIKE. SHE NEEDS ANOTHER HUG. NOW.
Prius April 12, 2013, 9:09 AM EST.
Thankfully, the stage is to far away for the audience to perceive the SOULLESS EYES
Huh? April 12, 2013, 9:32 AM EST.
I hate to be all critical of some one else’s art work but I can’t ignore it any more. Is it just me or does Lucy look like she has the pork-chop side burn thing going on? Now she just needs a mullot.
Zinc April 12, 2013, 9:33 AM EST.
Dem eyes…..methinks that “love she had never known” line hit harder than Sue realized it would.
Guessing April 12, 2013, 9:44 AM EST.
As optimistic as I am trying to be I just have this suspicion that things are still going to get worse before they get better. I imagine that after the play Mike and Lucy are talking, kind of awkwardly but happy to just be talking to one another, and someone walks up like Paulo and proceeds to inadvertently break down their apologies to one another. But I’ve got to hand it to Taeshi there always seems to be a twist that I don’t see coming, I’m half expecting Augustus to show up, having sat through the entire play in the back, and make things immensely uncomfortable for everyone.
Alfador April 12, 2013, 9:54 AM EST.
Sue should never become a professional writer of any kind. ^^;
The plot of her play kinda’ stinks.
Anyways, Lucy looks so cuuuute!

I hope freakin Mike doesn’t fall for her and ruin things for her and Paulo!
lolwut April 12, 2013, 10:41 AM EST.
The lovely Lucy sings her heart out. I can see this part of the play acts as their first encounter. I can also see that Lucy’s eyes are still “dead” from her depression, but once Mike and Lucy are friends again I’m sure she’ll have that sparkle in her eyes again. When that happens, the events in between this point to the being friends will still bring us to struggle with the drama.
Keyblade Dragon April 12, 2013, 11:14 AM EST.
this exitment and feeling in my heart hurts cx
Doodles; April 12, 2013, 11:59 AM EST.
I think Mike is just thinking of how pretty she looks :3. ummm… I think he has just realized how much he hurt her and maybe he has realized that what he has done is wrong, maybe?… idk…

Justaguyonthewebz April 12, 2013, 3:50 PM EST.
Something about her expression in the last panel makes me think she’s saying “Just go along with it”
Hex April 12, 2013, 3:55 PM EST.
@TheRealSomeone. I never met to say your fanfic. was a prono, it was just a book series that I remembered at the time. Also who took Mike’s virginity? In your fanfic, Sandy or Lucy. I mean Lucy gave Mike a HJ, you know what I mean, but Sandy did it all, so who really was Mike’s first. And I never said I didn’t know what Fifty Shades of Grey was about, I read the back in a book store. Also I can not find Love Me, I think that was the fanfic you told me not to read, I think it might have been removed.
Devin April 12, 2013, 3:58 PM EST.
It’s so strange to see Lucy without her bow.
Silversoma April 12, 2013, 4:02 PM EST.
Yes, but doesn’t she also look beautiful without it?
Umm WTF Don’t spoil my fanfic for those who haven’t read it… now I feel AWKWARD! And embarrassed (esp about that HJ comment)
Sex with(not saying that here)=Loss of virginity in my opinion. Other things… I say nope. GOD I FEELL REALLY AWKWARD!
I would prefer you make a fanfic account and PM me from that instead of discussing my fanfic here.
It also depends what you mean by “Mike’s first” for me to answer that.

Neo April 12, 2013, 5:13 PM EST.
O please let me be right! Let Lucy finnaly be comfortable with her self, and be happy around all her friends infront of mike. Let mike feel like a ******* for his jerkfaceness. Please don’t let this all be an act and its just the character in the play she is being! Knowing Teashi its probaly her just playing the role and no character development just to spite the reader. Either way cootos because u got me on the edge of my seat! Again!
JustSomeCritic April 12, 2013, 5:26 PM EST.
@TheRealSomeOne. Sorry I was not thinking, now I feel like Mike, a complete idiot, well sorry for spoiling anything to anyone, * really hard facepalm* Anyone who read my last comment go see a hypnotist to forget it or you could have. I will never say anything about any fanfic except praise from now on and I swear to god to never spoil anything to anyone ever again. I am sorry this thing will never happen again. Goodbye to you all for about 2-3 days.

lucy’s eyes always look strained, as if she is always stressed and never sleeps.
kaydin April 12, 2013, 6:02 PM EST.
You didn’t spoil too much don’t beat yourself up.
I didn’t say the forum just the fanfic website.
TheRealSomeone(akaSomeone April 12, 2013, 6:14 PM EST.
Part of me feels like Lucy has “let herself go”. Although she is beautiful you can see from this scene how mentally exhausted she is. Her cheek fluff is very long, her eyes still seem lifeless and broken and she has bags under her eyes. It’s kind of heartbreaking to see how shes fallen so badly from Mikes treatment. I don’t think he stares at her for being beautiful (surely this whole chapter is their relationship being reborn as a more sibling based one then romantic one). Both Mike and need Lucy need to learn to deal with their problems to be able to rebuild their friendship. Lucy needs to learn to stop clinging and Mike needs to learn to stop obsessing over his girlfriend and dedicate more love and time to his friends. (Honestly I hate it when people ditch everyone for their lover, there’s such a thing as balance…)

DAT first Lucy on the third panel shoud be made into a poster. So beautiful!
On a darker note, didn’t Mike say he was going to leave the table after the play ? Now I really, REALLY don’t want the play to end
FlyingPotato April 12, 2013, 6:36 PM EST.
It looks to me like things are happening a little too fast right now. I wouldn’t be surprised if Lucy suddenly went moody again a few moments later, or if the plot of the play took a turn and basically did the same thing.
I'll Eat Yourself April 12, 2013, 6:36 PM EST.
I am the @Devin from two days into the future, not, @supertails19 are you going to write another fanfic? Your first one, at lest i think it is the first one you have written, The Reign of Lucia was actually pretty good. Not my favorite, then again I have only read four BCB fanfics so I am no expert on what is a good read. The only thing I am is a self acclaimed expert on weapons/military/military history. But all in all it was pretty good and I can not find any other fanfics under your name. Also @TheRealSomeOne, Love and Hatred is my favorite BCB fanfic, as of right now, my only complaint is that can you proof read it so that words are not misspelled. It is without a doubt the best BCB fanfic I have read yet.
Devin April 12, 2013, 9:42 PM EST.
For anyone writing BCB fan fiction. This is a fact. Mike can kick Paulo’s ***, it was proven many times in the comic so keep that in mind.
Devin April 12, 2013, 10:07 PM EST.
This contains incest?! Lol

The first few bits make you smile, it warms your heart and then bam! Her eyes make you lose all of the warm feelings and makes your heart clench.
KoiInTheRedPond April 12, 2013, 11:32 PM EST.
Lucy’s eyes are so empty… ;__;
RandomAnon April 12, 2013, 11:58 PM EST.
Okay, I have NO idea why, but the yellow guy near the end of this video reminds me SO MUCH of Paulo. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cz-bUv8AqxA
I'll Eat Yourself April 13, 2013, 12:21 AM EST.
Huh. So after the wicked sister’s redemption her dress changed. That’s a cool effect, but it makes you wonder just what happened on stage. Did Lucy dive behind the curtain and change really really fast while they shined highbeams in the eyes of the audience? Maybe the played some sort of transformation melody to give Lucy a little time. I imagine if she’s nimble enough she can change in about a minute. None of this is really shown though, so it’s up to us to fill in the blanks.
Solvek April 13, 2013, 1:10 AM EST.
Oh no, I thought she was actually holding up until her last pose at the end. It seems as though her eyes already say she’s ready to break down. I can only imagine how traumatizing it will be for everyone, especially mikey and lucy, if lucy breaks down onstage.
Namestop April 13, 2013, 1:26 AM EST.
I don’t think he has a reason to. Lucy hasn’t been seen until now.
TheRealSomeone(akaSomeone April 13, 2013, 1:33 AM EST.
I feel incredibly pessimistic for saying this but I think anyone who feels Mike and Lucy will be friends after this are being overly optimistic. She is depressed and the only way she has been dealing with people recently is by giving them what they want: making out with Paulo; complimenting Sue’s play; reading through the script with Mike because he asked. Even the fact she showed up was probably just to keep Sue happy by ensuring the play succeeded.
Moogle April 13, 2013, 2:45 AM EST.

@kindle kat: don’t kill me! D8 I did nothing wrong other than state an opinion!
@supertails19: haha, I’m glad me on the last page. If she doesn’t leave anywhere, the last thing about her not wanting anyone to leave her for mike makes sense but out would be in vain. when they were practicing their lines earlier, he seemed to loosen up on her.
Oh and thanks for keeping me safe from kindleKat
Lol I wasn’t expecting anyone to reply to me and so I didn’t return until right now…I usually just skim through everyone’s comments here and fangirl by myself.
@Rylan: Paulo did have feelings for Tess and it seemed like he was had an inkling of love for Jasmine, however he seemed to treat her more like a family member or close friend than a girlfriend. He always looked back at Lucy. He was a man ***** only because of his pride and David thinking that Paulo was losing his touch, if I remember correctly? Rachel and Jasmine seemed to be the ones influencing him along with David. He always looks back to Lucy though. so I don’t think he’ll be bad for Lucy. If anything they might help each other out of their problems.
captainAndie April 13, 2013, 4:17 AM EST.
I really love the human aspect of this comic ( Human ) I see so many people I know reflected in all of these characters! The play arc here is interesting, I had forgotten about Sues play or assumed that it went on offstage a long time ago! @Taeshi: When is the next con you are going to hold? And if it could be closer to center us that would make my day! but i’d come if it were further.
Violet-eyed-warrior April 13, 2013, 11:39 AM EST.
@TheRealSomone. When is the next chapter for Love and Hatred coming out?
Devin April 13, 2013, 12:42 PM EST.
@Moogle: What’s wrong with trying to be optimistic? It is a whole lot better than saying: “Lucy will never find happiness as long as Mike is around, her only option is to move away from Roseville and find herself some new friends.” I put that around quotes because a pessimistic friend of mine said it. I can’t believe she actually wants Lucy to move away from Roseville and leave behind the place she grew up in. Although it does make sense for Lucy to want to get away from a place with painful memories, but if she doesn’t resolve her situation with Mike then it will haunt her for the rest of her life. It will always be something Lucy should have had closure with, but never will.
I’m not exactly sure if they should become friends again, but they definitely need to resolve this issue. Lucy is going out of her way to please people and it is tormenting her… I would rather be optimistic and hope for Mike to notice than be pessimistic and say that there is nothing he can do to fix what he has done.
It is clear that no matter what happens somebody will be sad, but I don’t want any of the main characters to suffer more than they already have .
@captainAndie: No problem. I really don’t like it when people threaten others even for a joke. It ‘s just not cool .
Anyways, you are right about Paulo always looking back to Lucy… he absolutely loves her. Problem is I don’t think she feels the same. Maybe if Paulo ever gets the chance to say: “I love you Lucy, I always have.” Then, I’ll say Paulo has a chance to have a relationship with Lucy… for now all they have is a tryst(think about it, does Lucy even know about the break up? I don’t think so ).
I have said it before, but I’ll say it again: Lucy wants to make her friends happy, that way they will be more likely to stay with her when Mike decides to leave the table… or if Lucy is moving away she will be remembered as a good friend. < I might have paraphrased that last part .
Lucy was called out as a parasite by Mike… why not prove him wrong and try making him happy at the same time . The only downside is that Lucy is hurting herself emotionally, just to please others… she should not have to do that at all .
@Devin: You couldn’t find my second fanfic because I got stuck trying to figure out an ending and I want the ending to be good. It is at around 20 chapters now. Just a few more to go I guess. I’ll post it whole before the 20th(finished or unfinished… hopefully finished ).
supertails19 April 13, 2013, 12:49 PM EST.
I am at what you call filler I guess… I have this huge story planned out but I am kind of stuck at points between big moments. I trying to figure out how go from Feb something to like May something! If did a chapter on each day or ever each week, I am sorry I can’t write 10k+ chapters.
I will give you something for being patient. I will get it up today, hopefully within in hour the current chapter or the chapter from last Saturday is almost done.
Ok on to the thing:
My fanfic will be covering roughly 29 years of their lives. I will give you this they have at least one child, and I am going to go till that child’s sophomore year. At a point the fanfic will be more about their offspring(s) then about them.
EDIT: The chapter is posted it really short, but I just don’t know what to do with it. I am starting on the next chapter which takes places months later.
Post the chapters you have done. If it takes you couple of days to get the last one done, so be it. wait don’t post them till I get chapter 29 up!
TheRealSomeone(akaSomeone April 13, 2013, 1:05 PM EST.
****, the last panel is almost scary… you don’t expect those eyes on her face.
boh... April 13, 2013, 1:11 PM EST.
“It is clear that no matter what happens somebody will be sad, but I don’t want any of the main characters to suffer more than they already have”
This is BCB. It’s gonna get worse before it gets better. Remember, Alejandro still has to make his re-appearance. Perhaps some resolving will take place when he next shows up, but it ain’t gonna be pretty for a while.
etyb April 13, 2013, 1:13 PM EST.
Mike must feel terrible right now..
Mikika April 13, 2013, 1:15 PM EST.
Read pervious page’s comments to understand where this is coming from. It is a short FanFic by me, now with a little insperation, no idea if I spelled that right, from @TheRealSomeOne’s fanfic Love and Hatred, it shows what I hope will happen after the play.
Lucy:So are you OK?
Mike:Yea. I’m fine, but thanks for asking.
Lucy:You doing anything tonight?
Mike:No. But, why are you asking?
Lucy: Well I have some money so I thought we could grab something to eat and, you know, just talk.
Mike:Sure, I have litteraly nothing to do.
Ten min later at a Denny’s
Lucy: Hey Mike,
Lucy:*blushes * What am I to you
Mike:I don’t know. I would like to say your my best friend, but *slight blush* some things can change. You remember back in 8th grade when every girl grade wanted to go out with me.
Mike:its almost like a repeat of that year, every girl in our grade has asked me out ,except you, at least twice.
Lucy: Sounds horrible.
Mike: it is. So how are things between you and Pualo?
Lucy: Things are… complicated.
Lucy:*raising her voice a little higher* You should know, it’s your fault.
Mike: What’s my fault?
Lucy:It’s your fault Paulo broke up with me!
Mike:I’m sorry Lucy, I really am. I didn’t want to talk to you because I was afraid this might happen. Now I just want to see you happy.
Lucy:Stop talking like that. You are starting to should like that creeper who hit on Daisy.
Mike: What do you mean?
Lucy:You sound exactly like him. He said that all he wanted was for her to be happy so he avoided her after she rejected him. Seriously Mike I don’t want that to happen to us. I want us to stay as friends.
Mike:OK. Hey want to come over to my house tomorrow? I just got a X-Box by using some money I saved up for a few years.
Lucy:Sure. See you tomorrow.
After paying for their food Mike and Lucy went home with hope in their hearts that they might turn out to be more than friends.
As I said this is basically a fan fiction story so stay tuned for part three of, I actually have no idea how many parts I will make but I will try to keep them shorter than this one.
Devin April 13, 2013, 1:17 PM EST.
I hoping he is gone. (Alejandro)
I agree on supertails19, definitely when it comes to Lucy.
Mike needs to suffer some guilt and some responsibility, but other that I completely agree with him.
You have good start, but I feel Lucy is bit out of character. <~~~ She seems too confident and I don’t think she would be so mean.
I imagine Mike would be more… forward and to the point IF he loved Lucy.
But I am just being an *** hole critic
TheRealSomeone(akaSomeone April 13, 2013, 1:18 PM EST.
@TheRealSomeOne. Great chapter, I did not see that coming. You do not have to churn out chapters on a daily basis. Try once or twice a week. Like Taeshi. Just a suggestion. I used to spend days devoted to little but my,failed, book. I missed a lot of stuff and I really sucked because I had a lot of hope for the book but it was flawed at it’s very core. Your Fan Fiction is a work of ark. Don’t rush it and screw up. If you try to rush something like a book or Fan Fic. you will regret it. But I will not tell you how to write your fan fiction it is friggin perfect the way it is, can’t wait for next update, I have reread it like 4 times already and love where it is going. But as I said don’t rush. Patience is the key to victory, in most places.
Devin April 13, 2013, 1:38 PM EST.
I try to do Updates on Thursday and Saturday. I update my other one on Tuesdays. Thankfully I have fallen behind on my other one.
I am not rushing it. It is all in my head, it’s just when I made it in my head, there was a LOT more fan characters. I should have added some of Paulo’s side story to that chapter.
Of course you didn’t see that coming Who the hell in their right mind allows that!
TheRealSomeone(akaSomeone April 13, 2013, 1:51 PM EST.
@etyb: Uhh, I didn’t say anything about whether or not I think the main cast will actually suffer… I just don’t want to see them suffer anymore than they already have. I guess you assumed that meant I didn’t think they were going to suffer anymore? That is one faulty assumption… be careful on how you read other people’s posts to avoid any confusion in the future.
About Alejandro: He got his but whooped by some middle school kids(a drunk boy and a deaf girl)… you really think he is going to show his scarred face again? Even if he does show up again, we all know he is going to be owned if he shows up with anything less than a small army. Also, we can count on Augustus to betray Alejandro if he gets anywhere near Daisy… in other words i’m not worried about him. Alejandro might do some damage, but in the end all he will accomplish is giving the cast a common enemy and bringing them closer together. As you can tell I have thought about his arrival for quite a bit and honestly Alejandro would be more of a threat in one of my fanfics .
@TheRealSomeone(akaSomeone: What would you think if I decided to post 15 chapters from my second story tonight and decided to post the rest in a week? Let me know what you think.
supertails19 April 13, 2013, 1:53 PM EST.
Thanks for the spoiler
I guess got this THOUGHT and it is honestly scaring me what if Alejandro kidnaps Mike or Lucy? Yes I badly want to seem the together, but I am not a fan of him resurfacing at all. I am hoping he is like Carter, Carson, and ******… GONE!
“Thankfully I have fallen behind on my other one. ”
It should say ‘haven’t’
TheRealSomeone(akaSomeone April 13, 2013, 1:56 PM EST.
Nah, Alejandro’s coming back at some point. We just don’t know when.
Nah, I understood what you meant; the point of my reply was basically “get ready, ‘cause you can’t always get what you want”
“Alejandro might do some damage, but in the end all he will accomplish is giving the cast a common enemy and bringing them closer together.”
Well yeah, I said as much earlier. Just not very well
etyb April 13, 2013, 2:43 PM EST.
@TheRealSomeone. It should say haven’t-TheRealSomone
You do that a lot. Sorry for patronizing you but you misspell words and use incorrect words a lot in your Fan Fiction. And sadly I am a perfectionist so I kinda bothers me. And if Alejandro comes anywhere near the BCB gang I will jump in to the comic and falcon punch him to the Great Wall and back, I will kill you Alejandro for almost raping Lucy!(insert insanely angry face).Wait, now that I think about it, the BCB gang will have grow up and they have Tess and Abby and David, he was not in Confrontation, and all of there other friends and side characters to help them. In other words they will probably be fine if Alejandro shows up again.
Devin April 13, 2013, 2:44 PM EST.
@TheRealSomone. Will the main characters in Love and Hatred do something special for each others birthdays. Just a suggestion but I think when their birthdays come around, in your fanfic or in real life, many you can have something special happen in you fanfic. This is just me thinking aloud so this is just an idea.
Devin April 13, 2013, 2:54 PM EST.
One can still hope
Let’s hope Augustus will stand up and… wait I don’t want Alejandro coming back! I am not hoping Augustus will do anything!
I proof read my chapter THREE 3 times. I don’t really have anyone who can proof read for me.
I am glad to know we both ‘love’ Alejandro
It’s really funny, I am halfway done with chapter 30 I just hate those fillers moments. This chapter is fun to write, therefore easy to write.
I will give you this: To answer that would be to spoil
TheRealSomeone(akaSomeone April 13, 2013, 2:59 PM EST.
notice hows Lucy’s eyebrows gets more scared as she looks at Mike.
such a revelation.
wr3h April 13, 2013, 4:06 PM EST.
I see it now. Her eyebrows become less and less relaxed. Well remember “December” I think she has the right to be a little scared.
TheRealSomeone(akaSomeone April 13, 2013, 4:09 PM EST.
No offense, but this play is really sappy and goofy (Sue needs to do better).
Again, sorry, but we all have a right to state our opinions.
The drawings are good though, I’ll give you that! 8D

@TheRealSomeone(akaSomeone: Spoiler? I said Alejandro would be more of a threat in one of my stories… do you know which one(s)? Each of them are probably going to be different and I think the second and fifth ones are going to be the darkest. <_< not sure if that is a good thing… most likely not.
Well back to BCB: Anyone else get the feeling that somebody is going to be crying soon? Either Lucy onstage while she continues her acting or Mike backstage probably when he is being interrogated. Neither scenario sounds good .
Also, enjoy: http://askbcb.tumblr.com/post/47862912598 Sweet dreams, Lucy.
supertails19 April 14, 2013, 12:46 PM EST.
So uh…new idea. What if Lucy leaves the table?
etyb April 14, 2013, 1:02 PM EST.
@etyb: Uhh, that is kind of the same as the Lucy moving away idea that some people have been talking about… makes sense because she does not want to make Mike angry and according to Augustus her mere presence makes him angry. It was definitely true back when they were having constant arguments. Now, I am not exactly sure if Mike is getting mad by being around her… if anything he is indifferent or beginning to feel sorry for her.
@Devin: About Mike being a good singer… Uhh, no: http://www.formspring.me/taeshi/q/ 430990923225123724 he could certainly try though. Don’t need to be good to try.
supertails19 April 14, 2013, 1:40 PM EST.
Well PauloxLucy shippers, Supertails19 just ruined your day
I think if Lucy cries it won’t be on stage. She wouldn’t want to ruin Sue’s play. I doubt Mike will be interrogated. And if anyone tries to Lucy will probably calmly tell them to leave him alone.
I got the feeling she is going to break down when she and Mike have some alone time. I mean when they are living their lives and they bump into each other and they are alone.
We are soon going to see if Mike has soul or not, and by how far is he willing to save Lucy from depression. It’s going to be hard for her believe him. He said she ‘never’ was his friend and he always hated her. So to her it looks like he just changed his mind. But since she is probably insecure and believes every word Mike says. She might just forgive him like it never happened. This is getting interesting.
We see in Volume II that Augustus’ words carry A LOT of weight. I don’t think she is moving away. I just think may she is like getting sent to another school not far from Roseville. So she isn’t with her ‘friends’ that also shows why her mother would be afraid of ‘abandoning’ But if Lucy gets away from Mike then why would she try to stop or put in an input.
I think Lucy’s mother is going away(vacation or something) and taking Jordan with her, and leaving Lucy to stay at Mike’s while they are gone(since her mom thinks they are friends). They are leaving Lucy so they are ‘abandoning’ her and she wants an input, because she wants Mike to be happy so she wants to stay away from him.
I just can’t believe after reading Lucy’s text and knowing she hasn’t been seen in WEEKS Mike would put things together. Maybe he has and he is waiting for the right moment?
That is why in Devin’s fanfic Lucy said it was ‘depressing’
TheRealSomeone(akaSomeone April 14, 2013, 1:41 PM EST.
her eyes are empty that’s so saaaaaaad!!!!!!!
also…. MIKE and LUCY, KISSKISSKISS
I'd say! April 14, 2013, 1:51 PM EST.
I just hope this doesn’t turn into Star Wars 5 awkwardness for the play. Since they are siblings in the play, it’d be really- gross just gross even thought it’s not.
Sanitarium April 14, 2013, 2:12 PM EST.
They know they are siblings in the play.
TheRealSomeone(akaSomeone April 14, 2013, 2:14 PM EST.
Sorry, bit presumptuous on my part. It’s an idea I hadn’t given much thought, so in a sense, it was/is still new to me. I’ve been pondering how it would all play out, none of which (initially, anyway) involve Lucy or Mike apologizing to each other. I like the possibilities quite a bit.
etyb April 14, 2013, 4:24 PM EST.
ooooh this may be it the apology and i hope that in the script the kiss and that they’ll realize they were made to be friends and what if in the play she really isn’t his sibling she just said that to tricks mikes character you never know.
auto April 14, 2013, 5:40 PM EST.
@TheRealSomeone and @supertails19. When I said Mike sand perfectly I met I came from the heart, dang I am starting to sound like Walt Disney with all this from the heart crap, and by that I mean the sound were sad and about losing and not being able to forget or not being able to get to someone they love, and in my fanfic Mike is now in love with Lucy and that’s why he can actually sing because he means what he is singing. And to give you an I idea of what he sang here is what I would think he would sing in this situation. Jessie’s Girl, because Paulo is his friend and at the time Mike did not know Lucy and Paulo broke up, Always something there to remind me, because he sees Lucy every day, some stuff from Linkin Park, Castle of Glass, In the End, New Divide, stuff along those lines. That is why I say he sang perfectly is because he believed in what he is singing which would bring out his best. I think. Just clearing that up, and @TheRealSomeone,Lucy said he was depressing because the songs were sad and depressing, just how Mike is feeling.
Devin April 14, 2013, 9:02 PM EST.
@TheRealSomeone. I said this is how I would LIKE the end of they play. After being with Paulo for a month or so some of his confidence rubbed off on Lucy. They are almost intentionally out of character. I agree I could do better but who knows, Lucy is almost half desperate at this point and so is Mike. Besides at this point they are just trying to be friends again with, knowing me, the possibility that they might together. Neither one is really looking for a relationship at this point as they both just got out of a relationship so they will probably try to just stay friends for a while. Also my next chapter will be based 3 months after the talent show, so in other words Mike and Lucy are friends again, but I am trying to think of an ackward, or dangerous, situation for them to be in to have them become closer together. Alas, I have said to much wait till later tonight, hopefully, or tomorrow for the next chapter.
Devin April 14, 2013, 9:13 PM EST.
@TheRealSomeone. In the entire comic Mike was crushing on Lucy, till Sandy showed up, and he never said anything! How can you say Mike would out right tell Lucy he loves her now, when he could not do it when they had the closest thing they have had, yet, to a romantic relationship! Sorry to snap at you but I am not following your thought process. Even in my small disjointed Fan Fiction Mike can not our right tell Lucy he loves her because he does not know if she still loves him.
Devin April 14, 2013, 9:35 PM EST.
She looks so stressed and sad.
DekuMarth April 14, 2013, 9:36 PM EST.
If anyone’s ever played Final Fantasy 9, you can imagine Lucy being Garnet in Lindblum when she’s singing. That’s what I imagine her to be singing.
