Double Down — Page 32

Author commentary

Veronica: I’m pretty sure people are raging over this right now, but come on. Daisy has ALWAYS been on Team Mike and NEVER on Team Lucy. She only defended Lucy a bit because Lucy made Daisy feel bad about Lucy’s own abuse. Which, I mean, fair enough! But just because you were abused doesn’t mean Daisy has to like you now :’D WHOOPS.

Also because Mike yelled at her on Halloween and Daisy is petty, okay?

Anyway I like how I’m talking about the segment where Daisy talks about how great Mike is and am just remembering the final panel HUH??!?!?!?!?!??!?

It's nice that she still remembers all the good he did do. A lot of people focus on the now and find that personality as concrete, once bad always bad, as if their capacity for good was gone forever.

This could turn out to either be a touching and sweet moment, or a complete and utter catastrophe.

SOMEHOW I HAD THE VIBE THAT THIS WAS GOING TO HAPPEN... I wonder how Daisy will react since she literally just told him she doesn't have feelings for him like that anymore

COME ON MIKE at least it was a kiss on the cheek. You better clarify that it was a friend kiss

Honestly though that page would‘ve have been a great help for my younger self, the pushiest push-over when it came to her friends in existence. excellent writing as always Vero, I‘m sure there‘s someone out there who still needs that little push and will take this advice to their heart. :3

On the one hand, I definitely feel that it is platonic. On the other hand, I don’t get why he had to kiss her at all.

this is actually really adorable and not even for shipping reasons. You can see Mike literally think it out right before he does it and its such a simple sweet way to show his affection and thankfulness for Daisy being a true friend all those years to him, like he's suddenly seeing her for the first time in the scope of what that friendship has been and not in a romantic way. Like if anyone deserves a little cheek kiss its definitely Daisy because she never faltered or gave up on him as a person

Comment ID #19868

to be frank I don't think it's /impossible/ that he's giving a friendly thank you kiss, but he's never done that before with anyone else, and it seems kinda... not smart to do that to someone who only just got over their long time crush on you

Even now, with all her growth I feel like Daisy's view of Mike is a bit too simple, rose colored, and idealized. Her 'vision' of Mike's relationship with Lucy we see is just him being so sweet to a mean violent girl who doesn't deserve him, and we know very well it's far more complicated than that. Daisy's still has an impression of the situation that's built of an intial foundation of jealousy and feeling that Mike can do no wrong that's clearly yet to truly crumble. It's very conspicuous that he still never gave her the context for what actually happened when he found out Sandy was cheating.

With that, and with Mike having realized that Sandy's not perfect, I'm kind of worried about this. He may be seeking someone to put on Sandy's old pedestal.

MIKE, NO

WE JUST WENT OVER THIS

And god the expression he has right before going for it is so telling. He looks resentful again. His anger towards Sandy is definitely a factor here and for me that's the biggest thing that makes me doubt this is truly just a wholesome Friend moment of gratitude.

the thing with lucy i will grant him was that he honestly thought his relationship was over but that scowl right before he did this has to mean he thought about this. he was spiteful, this is some sort of gotcha. but my GODDDDD to potentially make not one but two girls regress after extinguishing the torch they carried for you is insidious. mike you need to get your shit together

A cheek kiss, is the most platonic thing I've seen lately.

Daisy's such a sweet friend. This is good advice for anyone.

Imagine if Lucy happened to walk into the library just in time to see this lmao

And she's with Paolo right now so they'd both see it. Honestly, part of me kind of wants to see this happen and how they'd react.

The plot twist then being Daisy being embarrassed/frazzled and leaning into the situation, accidentally implying they are dating proper
