Heh, McCain. He dun got’s rabies. The funny thing is to pretend the foam is his hair. Also, look at what Sue is doing to Mike. Looks like some kind of super-nurple. Sue’s going to kill someone before the night’s over. Secondly, if Sue is clearly screaming at the top of her lungs, can’t the audience hear her? Also, how long after Ten Seconds to Midnight is this? Because, unless this happens before school starts, which is very unlikely, shouldn’t Lucy have already been at school for at least one day? If this is so, Sue would have likely had play practice and Lucy would have obviously come, or Sue’s rage towards who we guess is Lucy would be a little different.
Either way, there’s no way the play can go well. We’ve been here too long not to know that. And when something does go terribly wrong, which will inevitably involve Mike, Lucy and something being revealed to the entire audience, Sue’s gonna put a bullet into the base of someone’s spine for ruining the play.
Still kind of amazed no one’s realized Mike has something to do with Lucy’s disappearance. It’s quite obvious, really. Either way though, someone’ll find out eventually and there will be hell to pay.

Ah! lighthearted BCB comedy, i´ve missed you so much ….. okay enough, i need drama, and soon.
Red_Fezz February 15, 2013, 12:00 AM EST.
McCain is foaming at the mouth, Sue is having a rampage, Mike is here, but Lucy is not. This play is going to be great .
Sue better not try shaking Lucy and where is Amaya. Oh yeah she is handling the curtains .

If you look really closely, I am in every single panel of the comic that has ever been made. It’s just hard to see me, and sometimes nearly impossible, but just keep looking. You’ll find me.

Jesus…If I was Mike that would seriously make me nervous to not screw up…which adds pressure and makes it more likely for me to screw up.
Blaze33405 February 15, 2013, 12:06 AM EST.
now everyone watch as he screws up.\\r\\n
…Did anyone else read the 4th panel as, “Yes! I got tits!”? Sue’s hand position misled my mind.

Midstrike February 15, 2013, 12:24 AM EST.
I was right. Even Alec McCain can’t feel well with that.
Henry Wang February 15, 2013, 12:24 AM EST.
@Nikita:Well, we know it can’t have taken place before school starts again, as Mike would have left the table…
If something goes wrong in this play, and it’s Mike’s fault, and he tries to leave the table once school DOES return… well, Sue’s wrath isn’t something I’d want to face. The Soviet Operation Bagration, launched in 1944, destroyed Army Group Centre and carried the Red Army into East Prussia. If Mike and McCain here, with the play still running (fairly) smoothly, are any indication, then if something actually goes badly wrong, she could cause lasting pain on the responsible party(s). Look at how terrified she has Mike already. With Lucy as a co-star, and with Taeshi’s style of writing… well, he has good cause to fear.
Comrade February 15, 2013, 12:25 AM EST.
Yes, remember EVERYTHING! Remember your (old) feelings for Lucy and KISS HER!!

Here is P.R.C .
Henry Wang February 15, 2013, 12:28 AM EST.
“Shake things up with Sue” has a whole new meaning now. This explains why it didn’t test well when Sue was running for secretary. Also, why does Mike look like he is blushing in panel 4? Mike has a light blue cape, he can now pretend to be a hero for this play or choose his obvious role.
supertails19 February 15, 2013, 12:29 AM EST.
Sooo… what does Operation Bagration have anything to do with what you just said? Also, Mike will be executed on the spot.
Nikita February 15, 2013, 12:30 AM EST.
Laufente February 15, 2013, 12:36 AM EST.
Sue. Calm your tits.
People do much worse when you yell and put everyone on edge, so if people fail it’ll be your own fault.

Poor McCain and his broken neck
shaaa February 15, 2013, 12:44 AM EST.
@Comrade and @Nikita: Mike said he was leaving in January when the play is over http://www.bittersweetcandybowl.com/c68/p29.html we still have time before the drama storm stops by before leaving . Will Lucy be a no show again? Most likely she will show up right on time for her part .
Sue used Mean Look. Mike cannot flee .
Also, Mike probably thinking what most nervous kids think when they go on stage in front of a big crowd,
“don’t mess up don’t mess up don’t mess up don’t mess up”
supertails19 February 15, 2013, 12:46 AM EST.
He don’t got this.
Wat February 15, 2013, 12:54 AM EST.
This play is going down in ****ING FLAMES I can sens it, also sue you need to come the hell down, I she choked mcain the F out and the vibe she was giveing in the fith panel says “bitch I will rape you if you screw this up,” man she does not do well under pressure
lov/hate/hurt February 15, 2013, 12:58 AM EST.
For a second thee I honestly thought McCain looked like a you that Sue had shaken the stuffing out of haha
Knuc February 15, 2013, 1:01 AM EST.
@Nikita:Absolutely nothing whatsoever is the amount of relevancy Bagration has with my comment. See, though, I love history, specifically the World Wars. The knowledge is dripping out my ears; I like to put random notables of it into all my comments, across all my everything. Consider it a quirk of my writing.
More importantly, Mike may survive Sue’s fury even if he screws up the play… but only so long as he doesn’t try to leave the table. If he arses up the play, then tries to leave Lucy in the lurch… well, Sue won’t be the only one after his head.
Comrade February 15, 2013, 1:04 AM EST.
You know if there’s eney mike fans left out there, Its starteing to feal like as if they’re a dieing race and they’re surviveing by small moments like these

ScrabMaster February 15, 2013, 1:51 AM EST.
I love Sue. She’s like Lucy without the heavy drama and emotions. She’s snappy, she’s intelligent, she knows what she wants, and her expression on panel five is amazing!
Despite Sue getting all jittery about the play, this is way, I mean WAAAY more lighthearted the other things that have come to past. I’m going to enjoy all of this as much as I can because, and this pun can never be overused here, once things get really “sweet” they tend to become very “bitter” (cue Lucy).
Blank On Purpose February 15, 2013, 2:07 AM EST.
…Wouldn’t it be weird if Lucy had quit the play and Sandy or someone else was doing her part? =B
Lolly February 15, 2013, 2:10 AM EST.
lol sue is ****en amazing xD
i think this chapter is going to be one of the best yay!
Madi_mew101 February 15, 2013, 2:43 AM EST.
I don’t understand why everyone is thinking Lucy and Mike are going to have a love scene together. I think Sue is smarter than to push that… She cast this play when Lucy and Mike got really distant and cold with one another, so I think the play was written to make them feel more like a “brother-sister” kind of love for one another rather than a “dating” love. After all… the Blue blanket? The Pink Blanket? The casting of the “parents” having the same coloration of Lucy and Mike, but Gender-Bended?
BTW: I saw what you did there Veronica
Yeah, I think the whole plot is a ploy to get Mike and Lucy to get along again as friends that are as close as a brother and sister, rather than have them fall in love and hook up. Just sayin.

Mayamayagirl February 15, 2013, 7:34 AM EST.
GJ! Mike be confident and Sue will be confident with you.
I’m rather liking this chapter so far, I have some experience with play production and I know exactly what Sue is thinking.
I still wonder what the actual play is about, though.
@supertails19 I answered your questions on the last page~ I hope it clears some things up!

Sue is the man in the relationship~
Huh? February 15, 2013, 9:16 AM EST.
Sue sent some shivers down my spine when I saw her face in the fifth panel.
She’s taking this very seriously, and it shows! ..And I think she just gived more traumas of ****** off girls to Mike, hah.
..I would love to see the play, not just behind the scenes. ;___;

Zetsumei February 15, 2013, 11:56 AM EST.
She really shouldn’t be shouting like that backstage. What if the audience hears her?
Anyways, I wonder when Lucy will show up, if she comes at all. Though, I think she will, since she seemed determined to do well on the play. I also wonder how she and Mike will react when together on stage. And how will everyone react if Lucy doesn’t show up? Does she have a double? Will Mike finally come out and admit what happened to everyone? Will we ever find out what happened between Lucy and Augustus in New Years? Or maybe Lucy will show up to the play at the very last minute with Augustus. lol
So many questions! O_O
Lime Cake February 15, 2013, 12:56 PM EST.
Love how so many of the comments still steer towards “Oh Mike, we hate you, please suffer” like the usual bunch of children. Dear people, it has already been established that Mike is right, you are just making yourself look silly now, please stop, it’s embarrassing.

@melancholia: Sorry there was any misunderstanding in the first place. It was most likely my fault since I was confused about your post last page. Turns out we are 100% in agreement, all of your responses were wonderful, and i’m grateful that you took time to read that long post since I spent quite some time on it. Thanks for responding and clearing things up .
About this play: I am hoping for anything but a tragic love story that involves the main female character having to kiss the main male character and one or both of them dies. Seriously, if this play ends up being like Romeo and Juliet or like “That epic/suspense romance thriller with lots of jokes” from chapter 10: Off to the Movies… just thinking about it .

Oh dear, Sue is really high strung right now. I understand why, this is the play that Sue has worked very hard on. Everyone has been rehearsing for a long time and the play is about to happen, you just want everything to go right. But, I just know something is going to happen either to Lucy or Mike.

Lucy: *Sitting in the corner in a ball* Mike was right I don’t have any friends…
Sue: *hears Lucy* MIKE! I AM GOING TO KILL YOU!
TheRealSomeone(akaSomeone: *Jumps up and down for joy* *crying tears of joy* ABOUT ****EN TIME!
Lucy: *runs past Sue and puts arms around Mike and pleads* Don’t hurt him!
Mike: *Confused and sweating bullets*
TheRealSomeone(akaSomeone: *Pulls Lucy off* Have at him Sue.
Ok That Last part is not true I would not pull Lucy off of Mike. But I hope it made you laugh a little
In other words…
**** and Drama are both going to hit the fan VERY shortly!
I still love your predictions
TheRealSomeone(akaSomeone February 15, 2013, 2:40 PM EST.
Boy, Sue is going beserk with worry. As what I read from peoples’ comments, I must say that Sue has successfully planned a reconciliation between Mike and Lucy. Well played, Sue.
Keyblade Dragon February 15, 2013, 2:51 PM EST.
I wonder if the issues between Lucy & Mike will be visible to everyone now 0.0 I bet she’s going to show up at the very last moment, while Sue is strangling Mike and asking where in the world Lucy is.

Fuwanda February 16, 2013, 3:49 AM EST.
If Mike thinks THAT’S bad of a treatment from Sue, then just wait until it turns out Lucy (most likely) isn’t showing up, or at-least not participating in the play whatsoever.
Even better when Sue finds out WHY Lucy isn’t.
Boy, you’re ****ed, and you have no other to blame or thank than yourself.

shimsham February 16, 2013, 11:02 PM EST.
Oh dear… Poor Mike, she really is quite stressed out about this.
I have a bad feeling this is going to end… well, badly. Either Lucy won’t show up at all or come to the play and get yelled at by Mike. Either way, Mike will feel bad afterwards. Or maybe he’ll just go back to kissing phones and thinking Lucy is a desperate… um… youngeraudience, which would be all the more likely if she comes with Agustus.
And then there’s the small chance that Taeshi’s NOT making us worry and everything’s gonna go smoothly. *HIGHLY DOUBT HIGHLY DOUBT*
SaphiraN February 17, 2013, 2:07 PM EST.
She’s grabbing mike by his flabby nipples in frame 3. Nice
Anon February 17, 2013, 2:10 PM EST.
I think Lucy will show up. If she doesn’t it’s cause something bad happened to her… or her family.
When she walks in late maybe with her head down and ears a little droopy… or walking in with no emotion. Maybe Sue and others will finally put 2 and 2 together.
TheRealSomeone(akaSomeone February 17, 2013, 3:55 PM EST.
Why do I get the feeling that this is what will happen?
-Lucy shows up, they start the play, Mike and Lucy cast as siblings
-The two follow lines and such for a while, but real emotions will start to break through OR Lucy will be completely apathetic and this is noticeable to everyone
-Tension builds between them on stage, eventually cracking into a slight argument that, while addressing their real-life problems, seems very much in context for the play (and thus, looks like really good acting )
-The two won’t be on ‘avoiding each other’ terms anymore, but Lucy won’t be completely recovered just yet
-After the play, Paulo walks up and stumbles through a confession of his feelings, eventually just saying “Screw it all” and blurting it straight out
PocketGodPygmy February 17, 2013, 5:52 PM EST.
Now that I think about I think if Lucy doesn’t show up. It will show she is living up to her promise she made to Mike and Sandy.
I am finding myself more waiting for Mike to start feeling guilty and try to set things right with Lucy. Then I am waiting for the gang to find out and basically banish Mike… forever preventing Mike from making things right and it actually meaning something to Lucy other than “Oh he just wants his friends to stop hating him”
I am starting to accept PauloxLucy more and more, but I am still not 100% comfortable with it in the long run.
I hope this comic continues on long enough that we get to see Mike and Lucy’s relationship rebuild, maybe even possibly rekindle they love they had for each other!
TheRealSomeone(akaSomeone February 17, 2013, 10:43 PM EST.
@Scrabmaster: Sue is shaking 2 of her love interests in this page, somebody is still missing .
@Blank On Purpose: True the first few pages in a chapter tend to be comedic and lighthearted, until drama decides to make an appearance. In this comic drama has another name and it is Lucy… or at least that is how it appears since volume 2 (>:( is not pleased).
@Lolly: Paulo or anybody else taking Lucy’s part in the play… yes. That would be hilarious, but highly unlikely. Well actually, I think Jessica would be perfect as Lucy’s understudy because I am certain that Jessica would have been paying close attention to Lucy when she was rehearsing(or maybe Jessica was so entranced by Lucy’s beauty that she didn’t pay attention to anything else ).
@Mirasia: Assuming that Lucy gets here on time, Sue’s play has no complications, Mike and Lucy are able to have a civilized conversation, everyone else manages to believe it is all part of the play so no life changing questions are asked, and Sue manages to stop raging long enough to congratulate them for becoming friends again .
Yes, this does seem like a legitimate way to end this play. I would be ecstatic if something similar happens, but I wouldn’t get my hopes too high. Just high enough to believe that Mike and Lucy will become friends again. We will save worrying about what the others think until later .
@Huh?: When was Mike the man in any relationship so far ?
@Furball: Yeah, Sue’s stare still creeps me out if I stare at it too long. I’m surprised Mike isn’t used to having girls angry at him yet. Yelling at a kid(that is known to be nervous on stage ) before he goes on stage is a bad idea. Positive reinforcement works as well, remember that for the next time .
supertails19 February 17, 2013, 10:59 PM EST.
@Lime Cake: In response to everything in your comment:
1)Lucy will show up since it might be her last chance to see Mike and she won’t let Sue down .
2)Hopefully they will react how they are supposed to react in the play .
3)If for some reason Lucy doesn’t show up, then Sue is going to have Mike’s fur o_o.
4)Jessica and Sue probably know Lucy’s lines, they could take her place… the show must go on, right ?
5)Mike should apologize about the way he has been acting around Lucy and about the things that he said. It doesn’t seem likely that he will, but anything can happen .
6)Lucy sat on the roof top and did some thinking/sight seeing while Augustus stood guard and waited until she was done. I’m not sure what else you need to know? Hopefully whatever questions you might have will get answered eventually .
7)Augustus walking Lucy to the school play? Too much drama will happen if anyone realizes that Lucy was hanging around with Augustus this entire time… or that is what several people will assume(you know who they are ).
8)Yes there are a lot of questions and trying to figure out what the answers are is half the battle .
@KeybladeDragon: Sue has a reconciliation planned this much I can believe, but successful… uhh, I am hopeful that Mike and Lucy will finally get along or at least move on, but there are just too many things that could go wrong .
@PocketGodPygmy: Because that is what seems like the best scenario. I like it a lot, but I am doubtful that everything will go that smoothly. I am actually expecting something major to happen. I just don’t know what .
@TheRealSomeone(akaSomeone: What is finally making you want to jump ship ?
