Author commentary

Veronica: This is actually one of the scrapped pages from “Unfulfilled Fantasy”! When I originally did the comic, I wanted to end it in a lighthearted way so I switched the subject over to the day after the prom.. but Souppy thought it was horrifically out of place and should be totally scrapped. I finally agreed to it, but I really really REALLY loved this page.. so it gave me the incentive to make it into its own separate comic! In the end, I totally don’t regret this. I really love this comic.

The expression David does on panel nine is meant to be similar to that onion-headed guy from Di Gi Charat. I don’t really know what I was trying to do with this, shuttup.

Paulo is beginning to develop his look, too. His fang is becoming required by this time.. as well as the shape of his eyes not looking like the others.. you can also notice the puffs of his face coming out a little but more.. so that’s great, he’s looking more distinctive.

We want to email you some comics!

Join the thousands of BCB fans who look forward to an email of cat drama every Monday morning, and we’ll send you a dozen “Ships Ahoy” comic strips, and one every week after that!

We’ll send a link to the comics you missed, straight away.

I still regret *going* to my senior prom. Total waste of time and money, as it turns out. I should’ve just stayed home and played Baldur’s Gate II. :P

On the other hand, Mike and Lucy actually love each other, so perhaps they could’ve had a fun time if they’d gone together. Who knows?

I’ve been seeing author and viewer comments partially censored. Certain words are missing. Why is that?

So why are they talking about getting laid and making hand gestures like that and CLAIMING to have gotten laid when they are way too young for it to be legal? If they aren’t only 15, then aren’t they 13 or something? WHY WOULD YOU DO SOMETHING LIKE THAT!? Heck, how are they even into that stuff yet? Most people barely know what sex is at that age! O_O Or am I wrong in that claim? I can understand fifteen, but thirteen? You could get in serious trouble for even implying you did something like that at such a young age.
