I LOVE THIS BOY SO FUCKING MUCH
Comment ID #17534
YES! YES! YES! I KNEW AUGUSTUS WAS THE RIGHT CHARACTER FOR THIS! YES!
Comment ID #17535
He sure is. He found Lucy that night after all. He's going to always have her back, like she does his.
Comment ID #17536
This is why I love Lucy and Augustus together, total power couple. Supporting one another at their lowest, and helping build each other up to be their best.
Comment ID #17537
think they're better off as friends tbh.

Augustus: By saving a bunch of money on your car insurance by switching to Geico.
Mike: ……….I never though of that.
Comment ID #17547
uh oh agusto is pissed. Kinda sad now that the whole bait and switch idea from beforehand is now completely wrong and that mike was being serious. Jesus christ what a mess
Comment ID #17548
Are they just guilt staying with each other at this point?? Sandy thinking that mike is gonna do something dangerous and mike because sandy cancelled everything??
Comment ID #17549
I think sandy might be guilt staying with mike but i think mike is just saying all this as an excuse so he can try to push off the responsibility of what he did to lucy and feel less guilty about the whole thing
Comment ID #17550
I don't know which one is worse
Comment ID #17551
..Wait, is it possible that the "Burnt Bridges" title means Mike might actually break things off with Sandy after having this talk with Augustus? Is that a possibility right now!? Is that what the "Sometimes it takes a talk." summary of this chapter might mean???
Comment ID #17552
I só hope you are right

If you are only with someone because of guilt, it’s unhealthy for everyone. For you because you don’t really love them, and for them because they are living a lie they did not consent too

Absolutely in love with this chapter so far.
Love the little detail of Gus’s arm trembling- it looks as if he WANTS to hit Mike, but he chooses not to and puts his hand on his shoulder instead. I don’t want this to get violent…firm words are enough. :)
Comment ID #17557
Whoooa, I didn't even notice that! An awesome detail indeed. Auggy is an amazing brother figure to our Lucy!
Comment ID #17558
TELL HIM AUGGY
Comment ID #17559
The bait and switch of the preview image lol I thought for sure this page was about to pivot into Mike getting some sympathy and I was gearing up to be so disappointed in Augustus for letting him off the hook that easily. That red background in the final panel, Augustus is PISSED and I am living for it
Comment ID #17560
Not going to lie, I would have been disappointed too if Augustus reached out of sympathy. Mike is actually my favorite character but that boy needs some serious character development that only a firm hand can shake into him. Sympathy now would only cave into validating his terrible decision and there's just no more room for that BS, lol. GO AUGGY GO

Just realized Mike's in/making an abusive relationship kinda like Augustus parents
Comment ID #17564
Mike, I know having unhealthy relationships is kinda your thing, but please stop. Hopefully Auggie is going to set him straight once and for all. Also, admire Augustus’ restraint here too. He clearly wants to clean Mike’s clock but is holding himself back.
Comment ID #17565
Is Augustus pissed at Mike? Yes, did he also start visibly shaking levels of pissed the second Mike started talking about some potentially emotionally abusive stuff from Sandy? Also yes. Is he too mad to realize this, or is he mad because he realizes this?
Comment ID #17566
I think he realizes the relationship Mike is in isn’t healthy, and knows about Lucy, which is what set this all up for him. I’m happy Augustus didn’t immediately deck Mike but I feel like Mike needs a good slap to wake up
Comment ID #17567
Oooh, that’s a good point Fiver. “How could I say no?” regarding a girl probably brings back some complicated memories of Melanie.
Comment ID #17568
STOP BEING A CUCK MIKE GOD DAMN
Comment ID #17569
This is a suicidal relationship. Both partners making their own lives worse to be with the other.
Comment ID #17570
I'm so glad we have this chapter, I'm so glad Augustus is stepping in like this-- to hear Mike out, and put him straight.
Comment ID #17571
Just realized Gus is saying “you know how”—to say no to her. Rather than a weird way to say “how do you know?” Maybe an underline under “know” or adding “to say no to her” would flow better? The last panel was a bit confusing.
Comment ID #17572
To me the period at the end of "You know how." and Augustus facial expression was enough emphasis on what he meant. I wouldn't have gotten "how do you know" out of it, tbh :O
Comment ID #17573
Fair. I can’t English 😅
Comment ID #17574
OOOOH, that makes sense! Totally valid
Comment ID #17575
Set him straight, Sephiroth
Comment ID #17576
EASILY!!! You could have done it easily! I'm channeling all my rage in Augustus right now. Let him have it!
Comment ID #17577
The page has been broken for me :c sad

I think he's gonna do it!

Hoooooh, Auggy-Boy MAAAAD…
Comment ID #17581
WAIT did he choose to wear his classic outfit for the intimidation factor today??? 😭 of course he didn't know that Mike had gone back to Sandy or anything but if he knew that Mike had led Lucy on... 👁👁
Comment ID #17582
I'm mostly kidding btw it's just a cute thought lol
