Veronica: Don’t think Lucy didn’t notice you this whole time, Mike!

I had the original plan for Lucy to say that to an angry Mike who would then realise the expression he’s making, but I figured he’d be quickly shocked by her sudden callout.

ANYWAY HERE IS A DIFFERENT KINDA CALLOUT: SOUPPY’S BIRTHDAY IS ON SATURDAY!!!! HE’S GONNA BE 31 YEARS OLD!!! HE’S AN OLD MAN!!! You should wish him a happy birthday on Saturday!! Or a happy early birthday!! And if you wanna be extra nice, you should draw him some PauloxDaisy, MikexLucy, or Madison being her typical grumpy self!!!!! I THINK HE WOULD APPRECIATE IT. Just some wishes and kind words would suffice though!!!! I love you Souppy!!!

TODAYS PAGE IS FUCKING EXCELLENT, THE BEST ONE OF THIS WHOLE CHAPTER, MY FAVORITE
“But I still can’t forgive him for what he put you through. How it could’ve been worse.” Lucy recalling her experience with Alej, Lucy knowing how much that hurt and scared her, Lucy holding Augustus responsible for his past actions while trying to help him get better, Lucy showing that she DOES take what he did seriously, Lucy protecting Daisy despite the fact that she has a lot of issues with their friendship / despite Daisy blaming Lucy for getting harassed. The evidence that Lucy has thought about this a lot and that what Alej did to her is still affecting her. 
Daisy taking Lucy’s advice to heart as Lucy uses softer and kinder language. Lucy’s words ringing with “I’ve been through it too.” 
Lucy calling Mike out in a way that shows that HIS ISSUE WITH HER is […]

A different view from Daisy being this jealous monster like I’ve been posting a fair bit around and in a different light; do you wonder if Daisy considers Lucy almost like as if she was a big sister? Daisy is so protective of Lucy and goes out of her way to make her feel welcome and special.
I feel it almost might explain why she sort of…backs off when Lucy loses it, and takes her advice. It’s not so much her treating her like a kid, but something between a sibling or mentor.Posted image

*cracks knuckles* ok back again with more bcb
I’m on mobile so SORRY FOR THE LACK OF A READ MORE
SO I was correct that this is only gonna bring Daisy and Lucy closer (or at least better at seeing where the other is coming from) so suck on THAT.
I’m also very impressed with Lucy’s development- she’s much more emotionally mature now. Clearly she’s still dealing with strong emotions and learning how to appropriately express them, but hey she yelled once and recovered and instead of storming off like she might have before, she took the moment to reassure and encourage Daisy. Not sure if Daisy is gonna pick up on that, but hey, the effort is there.
This is also a great reminder that Lucy has dealt with a LOT of sexual harassment in the past. Daisy has only had the one instance with Augustus, and yes, it was bad, no amount of sexual harassment is okay. So I […]
