Poor Lucy. Mike is really being a jerk. I can’t wait to see when he dumps sandy. Can’t wait!

Zack conducts himself awkwardly, and thus seems to have acquired a bad rap. Unfair! Those of us with all seeing eyes can see that he is not creepy. Just awkward.

Yeah, romantics like him aren’t really accepted today as much as they were in the 1800s.

He doesn’t sound pedo-ish to me, he sounds like he really cares what Lucy will go through if Mike leaves.

Zach is not a pedo, he’s a nice dude with good intentions. The LEAST Lucy can do for him at this point is sing for him.

Dammit guys, Mike’s the most selfless person in this entire comic, and some people say he’s a jerk!!
He is just being DRAGGED DOWN by Lucy!
Poor cat can’t find his happiness because of her -_-
(Not that she does it on purpose, though)

He’s so much… larger… than her. o.o Not sure if you meant it to be that way, but he’s like a giant. xD Reminds me of someone, but that doesn’t matter xD I like him, but something about him urks me. :/

that info about Zachary, reminds me a lot an old friend, he tried to hug me for.. 5 seconds and he can’t XD

but Zachary still cute, cool and great chara :D

I don’t know if that counts as a spoiler, but there is still time, the story isn’t over and it can do a 180. ;)

ya know, I didn’t think Zach understood but I like him better then Mike now. The only bad quality that I see about him is that he’s noisy and tries to help other people’s problems, and has a hard time communicating his thoughts sometimes. Wow he kinda sounds a lot like me :O

Zach is right Lucy is an abusive bitch: beating Mike up whenever he wins or jumping down his throat whenever she beats him. Yet, any moment Mike is on the brink of death or away for an extended period of time she acts extremely detrimental and withdrawn.

I still remember when Lucy kissed Mike…

MationMac May 19, 2011, 11:33 AM EST.

Comment ID #162451

Remember when Lucy kissed Mike at the end of Confrontation? That was all the indication anybody needed to know she liked him. And for a while, I thought Mike liked her as well…Then Sandy came along. If it weren’t for Sandy, Mike wouldn’t be a douche and he’d be with Lucy. BUT! If Mike wasn’t hanging on to Sandy, then any hope for LucyXPaulo would be out the window.

I think Paulo is a better match than Mike is for Lucy, so Sandy is kind of a blessing disguised as a knife stab. Even if LucyXMike happened, I’d still be going on and on about LucyXPaulo.

Zach is like a father to Lucy. I really like that about him. But of course, if anybody walked by them, they’d think he was a pedophile. Ugh…People are stupid sometimes… :(

So basically, in this universe, somehow, between grade 9 and adulthood (only four years in our world anyhow), they go from being child sized to being adult sized, all at once.

That is a hell of a growth spurt.

I know, I know, I am so nitpicky. They hated me back when the Kit and Kay Boodle site had forums!

I don’t quite like how everyone is considering Zachary a pedophile. I mean seriously it’s not uncommon for random strangers to actually care enough about someone to give them advice. I mean just look at CHURCHES for God’s sake. And all those self-help books out there, it’s like you people have been living in caves all these years. Caves with internet access of course.

Honestly, I was hesitant to read this at first. But these characters are so well developed and interesting.
Micheal, for example, is developed to be a gigantic *******. If Lucy has problems, rather than patting himself on the back and pretending to be her friend for ‘tolerating’ her, he should get her some help. Instead, he just keeps a swarm of girls around him to pluck from dependent on his current feelings. He obviously likes her. Both as a friend and otherwise. I’ve read the last few chapters. It just gets worse.

(Spoiler Warning :: If you are not caught up with the story, do not read this comment)

So with this page…maybe Lucy is with him (this guy) right now. She hasn’t reappeared in the story ever since that fateful day wayyyy past this. Maybe to cope she took him up on his offer (she did tell him she’d sing for him (for 100 dollars)) and he’s been working with her to make her a singing career. I honestly don’t know what to think though. It’s sad revisiting this arc.
