It's hard to determine just what's going on in Lucy's mind. Is she actually considering suicide? She knows that her family is concerned about her, and that she has other friends she can lean on, like Paulo and Sue. She knows that letting go of Mike doesn't mean the end of the world, because Augustus told her that
. Perhaps she's not suicidal, perhaps she's just mulling things over while watching the world pass by. After all, she does have that nice fluffy fur coat
, so she's not as cold as might otherwise be the case. Perhaps she's decided to make a new start, to begin a new life without being too dependent on any one person. It is New Year's Eve after all, and the time for making resolutions.
Might Augustus on the other hand think that Lucy is considering suicide? Will he say something to her to try to bring her down? He may be rough and snarky, and he may not care about a lot of people, but that doesn't mean he has no empathy whatsoever.
Also I remember Taeshi commenting on a page ages ago about it being the first time Augustus' name was being shown in the comic. he already had a name before but it never appeared in the comic or something? Or was that another character? I can't really recall.
No, you're right. We knew Augustus' name well before he was actually referred to as such in the comic. This
is the first in-comic mention of Augustus' full name (as opposed to "Gussie", "creeper", "that older guy", "Siamese guy" [he is not actually
Siamese] or "Final Fantasy Cat").
