Author commentary

Veronica: This comic made me discover a flaw I tend to always do - cone heads. This is most prevalent in the third to last panels, but whenever Lucy’s ears are down, she seems to develop a REALLY BIG FOREHEAD. Almost a cone head. I am going to make a mission to completely extinguish that habit, because of that panel alone.

Man, Zach is one of the best advisors ever. I would never have come up with all the things he says.

Hi, I’m Zachary, otherwise known as a plot device that will most likely be reincarnated at least once.

Sure why not Zach, you’ve been blunt for the whole chapter. Why change now?

Probably because he has a reputation and it’s a private conversation. I’ve known enough guys to know they all have two sides, even if they don’t realize it. Take a lesson from an expert on this, you boys with your firsts, find out who you are before they find out for you. Otherwise you’ll end up in an awkward situation. Something like the last panels here. You’re looking at the real Zach, not the mask he puts on when he’s in public.

zach needs to seriously shut the f*ck up, he does not know this, he is speculating, and possibly misinterpreting what mike said

I don’t think he’s just screwing around with Lucy…
I believe his intentions are good…
but that is NOT the way to make it all better…

Wait, I get it. I reckon he’s in Lucy’s place with Catherine. (That’s his chick’s name right?)

So, maybe he’s trying to head her off before she has a rubbishy, pining life like he OBVIOUSLY has.

@Le Biologist

His intentions are without a doubt good. He is a lot wiser then them, but part of me thinks he doesn’t have the whole story with Mike and Lucy. I hope he really is helping her. :unsure:

Yes, it’s very wrong. Go sit in a corner, lol. XD

God, Zach is just killing her with his honesty. This is the best thing ever! :D

what did think was going to happen lucy and to honest deep down you kew this, thats got to be why you freaked out when tess was going to pay for him to go see his girlfreind

On the one hand, I can understand Mike’s point of view. He sort of acquired a friendship he never really wanted, which turned out to be mostly abusive.

On the other hand, I love MikexLucy, and Mike is being an *******.

Man, Zach is awesome. I feel so bad for Lucy here, though. But I suppose it’s better to hear it from Zach than Mike…

@ NintendoSegaSonyGuy i may be a little late to say this but whatever, in truth i don’t care who Lucy ends up with i just wish her to be happy but (if you pardon the pun) this web comic may have a bittersweet ending.

i don't know April 1, 2012, 10:16 PM EST.

Ouch, how will Lucy get Mike back? ;_;

Panel 2 is kind of a mood breaker, I think Zach may have picked it up from David… :O
