Author commentary

Veronica: I was originally gonna make up a song for Roseville High School.. then I realized how rubbish I am at writing songs/poetry/anything.. so I decided to make this page completely without dialogue. Except for the “eh-hem”, of course.

Lucy doesn’t want to sing, but you can see the gym teacher forcing her on panel four. That used to happen to students who didn’t want to recite the pledge of allegiance back when I used to go to High School. The teacher would glare at them or even stop and order them to go along.. so that’s what’s happening to Lucy in the pep rally, for those curious of what’s going on between those panels.

At my school our song doesn’t have words, so the only people who know it is us poor unfortunate band people.

Am I the only one who had been hoping to see Carter get up to base back in the kickball pages?

Even that would be interesting with HIM involved.

poor Lucy…… I love that it’s the gym teacher that makes her sing & that when they hear her everyone just stops & stares!>:(

Even if her voice is perfect, I kind of doubt it would be loud enough to drone over everyone else’s. Then again, I don’t know. Depends on the softness or sharpness of the anthem they were singing.

@NintendoSegaSonyGuy: It’s probably not loud enough to drown out everyone, but notice the progression of the panels. It starts with Mike, then Paulo and Yashy, and then Sue and everyone else. It’s a general domino effect going on - as people nearby stop singing to listen to Lucy, the noise drops enough for the next row of people to hear, who then stop singing, and so forth.

I’m sure she’s good but, pep rally’s are looooud, there is no way the people in the choir down on stage would have been able to hear her, so I’m marking that down as silliness.

This is a really Mary Sueish trait exaggerated to a ridiculous extent in this scene. I’m glad the ‘perfect singing’ thing has died down a little. Lucy just seems to be good at everything the moment it matters: she can sing better than anyone, everyone thinks she’s ‘the hottest girl in the year,’ she can fight off a guy who’s twice her size and hold her own for damn long enough for it to be ridiculous. It just lets her down as a character that she has all these tacky cliche talents.

It’s weird that Lucy didn’t kick someone (Mike for example :) ) when she realised that she’s the only one singing…. Maybe hat’s because she’s in school…

Wait, hold on a sec……. I GOT IT!!!!!
AMAYA HAS FINALLY SPOKEN!!!!!!!!! Think about it: The teacher got mad at Lucy for not singing, so surely, she would have noticed anyone else in that direction who wasn’t singing, and would have got mad at them, too, and Amaya is directly behind Lucy. But the teacher only got mad at Lucy, which means Amaya was already singing!

Pffft. Screw those teachers. Forcing students into ridiculous crap like that.
Reminds me of when I was back in Primary School and everyone was basically forced to say that stupid prayer several times a day… and they’d have teachers and stuff wander around to make sure everyone was saying it…
… I’m glad to say I went all those years without ever learning the words because I purposely muttered other things to myself over the top. Usually just word-salad, or wishing horrible deaths upon the teachers.
