Author commentary

Veronica: The thought of Sandy being like “I’ll just fire my hairstylist no biggie” is kind of hilarious to me

But I guess she really needed to convince him she meant what she said!!! It’s not like he was especially eager to get back together with her after his talk with Lucy anyway…

Oliver: daggers in augustus’ eyes

He sure is. He found Lucy that night after all. He's going to always have her back, like she does his.

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.

Mike: How?

Augustus: By saving a bunch of money on your car insurance by switching to Geico.

Mike: ……….I never though of that.

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

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??

Sh0rtpers0n  

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

I don't know which one is worse

..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???

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. :)

Whoooa, I didn't even notice that! An awesome detail indeed. Auggy is an amazing brother figure to our Lucy!

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

AlisterTX  

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

Red Marine  

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.

Megan Wood

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?

Fiver26  

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.

STOP BEING A CUCK MIKE GOD DAMN

This is a suicidal relationship. Both partners making their own lives worse to be with the other.

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.

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.

Ema Nekaf  

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

EASILY!!! You could have done it easily! I'm channeling all my rage in Augustus right now. Let him have it!

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... 👁👁
