I'm sure that everyone thought the scarf was about Sandy the whole time.

It's really nice they're sorting out their issues, but I don't think this is the healthiest way to do it.

The second scarf was but originally it was about Lucy eyes

I really don’t think he’s lying. In ‘Wonderland” and before Lucy confessed, she dreamed about Mike and outright stated that he never wanted to tell her why he was so picky with the color of scarf he chose. I have a feeling that if it was because of Sandy that he’d outright say it and not be secretive/shy about it. (c49/p2)

The second blue scarf he received as a gift from Sandy because she noticed that in their old photos together his original blue scarf and her blue hair ribbon matched and she thought it’d be cute if they did it again. (c71/p22)

(but I could be wrong lol)

maybe sandy was matching HER ribbon to your eyes lucy... ever think about that?

Airy Frith  

Comment ID #15875

I really did think it was because of Sandy's ribbon! 🤔 And I think Sandy did too since she got him another one so they could 'match' again..

It's been a while, how did he lose the first one again? Or did he just throw it out...I totally forget..

I think his old one got worn out/tore and that's when tess gave him a replacement scarf.

The chapter "wardrobe malfunction" (c24/p1) will explain it! Mike kept getting harassed/beat up/egged because people thought he was cheating and it essentially destroyed his original scarf. I don't think it was stated explicitly anywhere that he actually threw it out though? i could be wrong!

It was in his locker! But idk if anythingnhappened to it after

This is a nice way for them to part. :) nothing more really needs to be said right now.

I hope that they can move forward in a positive way from this, once the pain of the breakup is less sharp and Mike can think more clearly. I have a feeling they’re going to be pretty embarrassed about their…decisions, tonight, once they calm down.

y'know! I'm definitely not a Mike/Lucy person and the first half of their interaction had me Super nervous, but Lucy seems pretty happy! of course they just had a very Dumb Kids moment, but I'm more concerned with how they feel about it. I just hope this remains a positive for both of them, Lucy especially 😭

prismabunny  

Comment ID #15881

I feel similarly, I’m not a mike/lucy fan really but the way this interaction is ending gives me hope that it could maybe work out for them, with some more time and effort? I think this is a really sweet moment and I’m glad that lucy looks happy. :) I’m sure this gives her some closure, even if it’s complicated…

Okay hmmm still concern but good ending to this feud after 2 years

Lucy’s so pretty in that 5th panel <3

…But save it for tomorrow you two, GO HOME!!!

Very good. Very good content. Please talk more about what happened though, kids. Mike needs to fully acknowledge that he was wrong.

Mike knows he was wrong. He said so, many times. But don't worry, he will suffer more and you will be happy.

Dave Ostroske  

Comment ID #15886

Uh, yikes. He’s a high school kid. I don’t want the guy to suffer. Just acknowledge and right his wrongs

CheesyRobotMacaroni  

Comment ID #15887

He doesn't need to white knight for Sandy anymore, which was the main reason a lot of these discussions have yet to come up, so yeah, I'm expecting quite a bit more conversations about the wrongs Mike has committed and how he can go about making them right, or at the very least better himself and start working on some of his negative personality traits.

pls god don't let them just sweep it all under the rug

After how the call at the beginning of this chapter ended with Paulo? I'd be absolutely stunned if things didn't finally start getting brought up with how Mike has been treating everyone, especially Lucy.

Alec  

Comment ID #15890

we all did! And I've never been so happy for being wrong

*skittering around in a manic fashion, like a bug* ourghhh... i both love how it's like "that was silly of us" and also like ".... //// *having feelings*" ahhh i just love this chapter..

I usually have predictions by now but i'm not sure what the aftermath could be like for either of them! i guess mike will likely have to go back to his house and see his phone and then feel a way about being reminded more immediately about his situation with sandy... but whether or not that makes him feel dread, or he feels freed from caring about his relationship, I wonder....?

Cool, NOW PART WAYS AND GO HOME ALREADY

Comment ID #15893

The fact that neither of them seem super upset about this is nice, and this page is adorable. But I also just realized this means Mike has indirectly kissed Paulo now and I can't stop snickering.

Oh, talk about melting my cold heart.... my old Lucy/Mike ship is rising from the sunken depths!

This chapter is taking years off my life, I feel like something bad is still gonna happen I just don't knOOWOWOWWWWW

Even if these two end tonight on a high note, Paulo is PROBABLY going to have something to say about all of this tomorrow LOL (..or even Augustus, or Jordan, or-)

@esinololly

Ngl, I feel like Paulo will beat his ass when he finds out, causing more issues and pushing Mike away from the group more. Would it hurt Lucy? Most definitely since she seems happy to make up with Mike. Would Paulo do that? Probably, since he was the angriest with Mike (with good reasons) but maybe he grew out of it. Hard to say though, and I’m excited to see where this goes.

Honestly, old Paulo? I could 100% see him getting super bent out of shape and aggressive over that. But now? I don't know, he seems to have mellowed out a TON. (just look at their interactions in Witch Hunt) I suspect he'll extremely stern and direct with Mike, and probably advise against him pursuing a relationship with Lucy so soon after Sandy, but I don't really foresee him getting angry or upset over this. Jealous maybe, but not angry.

Alec

Fair point, I went back and re read that chapter, it’s been a while so I might do a full re read to refresh myself, lol.

you know what i realized

the pages on the top go from blue, yellow/orange, back to blue almost like mike's scarf 😳

Iemonesque  

Comment ID #15907

So this entire time Mike was emotionally cheating on sandy anyway.

Justin Seifert  

Comment ID #15908

Oh the irony!

I find it interesting that the both of them processed the guilt of the emotional cheating so differently. Mike did it by being super defensive and pushing everyone else away while Sandy ghosted her boyfriend.
