Author commentary

Veronica: No matter how much I whined throughout this chapter, I did like the concept of having another outsider looking into Lucy and Mike’s conflict. Zachary was the observer in the summer vacation arc, and it basically seems to have a pattern of Lucy being freaken nuts.

I think the best thing about this admission is the fact that you didn’t say that things wouldn’t end up Paulo x Lucy, you merely said it wouldn’t be made any more so. ;D

The biggest thing about this comic is that it reminds me of… well, myself. And not in a good way. I was Mike back in high school, though my (female) friends (at least a couple of whom had crushes on me, as well as probably a few other people :( ) were much less ascerbic and vice-versa. And of course, I pined away for someone I couldn’t have… not that I’d change anything, but reading this comic, I get more of the female point of view, and man, it would have sucked to be someone who liked me in high school.

I really love your comic, and am now an avid fan. Thank you for making it!

Mike’s line “So are we cool then?” reminded me of the last page from “Unmerry Melodies.” For those who want a link for quick reference, it’s the 4th page of the 24th chapter. Quite a lot has happened since then, though.

The only reason the last panel looks awkward is because his right arm is following his right foot, when it should be his left arm following his right foot.

“People might slap me on the wrist at my recent PauloxLucyness. I want to basically come out and say I freaken LOVE PauloxLucy, and I GUESS it might have affected the story a bit (Considering that not everything is set in stone), but I guarantee you that anything absolutely crucial to the comic is not changed to be more PauloxLucy. Certain things cannot change, and by certain things, I mean the ending. So no matter what happens, the ending will not change.”

Even the creator loves LucyXPaulo. Come on, people. They work just like bread and butter.

I don’t like that “Certain things cannot change” line. You make it sound like LucyXPaulo is completely out of the water for the ending. Spoilers, much? Do you really plan on it being LucyXMike at the end? Seriously? That’s just too cliche for me…I would hate that ending. Please don’t go around giving your viewers the wrong idea like that, Taeshi. THAT is what I call a dick move. It ****** people like me off.

No matter how the ****ing ending ****ing ends, I’ll always root for LucyXPaulo. Die-Hard fan of that couple.

Ha, that’s the name of a very famous Christmas movie. I have to see it one of these days. :)

I figured out that, around the major/minor characters, the story mainly focuses on Mike, Lucy, Paulo, and Daisy, and with how things have tuned out so far, I REEEEAAAALLY hope what I think happens, HAPPENS!

I used to think he he was a major jerk.

Now, after many chapters up to recent, I think he’s a nice guy and I have immense respect for him.

Plus, although the romance between them would not work out, its kinda nice to observe once in a while.

PauloxLucy would actually be pretty great if Paulo were to quit being so assuming and if Lucy would learn to control her defensiveness…
