Sudden anger. That’s sorta not the reason why you came, Lucy…
@bored: Have you met a girl, like, ever. It’s not ‘most’. Lucy is an X’TREEEM case.

We can salvage this; just make it end up like “Having Kittens” and it’ll be all good.

*Smacks bored on both cheeks* Keep sexist comments like that to yourself, if you know what’s good for you.

….*pokes Kenaro with a stick then runs* D: So says the person who commented sexist-ly claiming boys are stupid within the intervention chapter.

This is one of the reasons I don’t like Lucy. Or the only reason. But still she is too bi-polar.

Mike’s face in panel 9, really fits to the emotion.

@Skyskitsune And yet again, stranger, your YGOTAS reference makes my day.

Anyway, is anyone else reminded of “Making Kittens” in the last panel? *suggestive eyebrow wiggle*

I’ve developed a sort of irrational hatred of Mike. Don’t know why. Hmmm.

I don’t think she’s bipolar. She just doesn’t understand how to handle the feelings that are twisting around inside her. I imagine every time she’s near Mike she feels a little self conscious and to cover it up she buries it beneath frustration and anger. Those feelings can be easier to associate with than the feelings of love, which by their nature require you to expose a part of your heart. Scary!

This time around she consciously recognized she was looking for him and just when she begins to ponder if she should tell him how she feels *bam* there he is! Now she’s confronted with his presence when her feelings are at the forefront of her mind. Emotion overload!

C’mon, Lucy! Use your words! Apologize and then thank him for everything he’s done for you! T’would be a great start! =)

And this is why girls should always let out their emotions, ALL OF THEM, Because if they don’t, they go beyond the level of “BITCH” and into the level of “NON-REASONABLE BITCH” jus sayin’

I like how she reacted to mike saying he wasn’t going to pick a fight with her. She seemed outraged that he was trying to keep his nose clean

I think she already was pretty bipolar to begin with, I’m not sure she really became that way.

Why wasn’t Mike happy to see her? I don’t understand. Is it because Zach told him that Lucy loved him and he was all “She doesn’t. She just needs me.”? And suddenly just got ****** at her?

@ben.duffa-kover Mike was glaring at Lucy.
In most comics when a character glares at someone their eyes are ususally pupiless.

To the guy at the top, “bored”:

If all women were like that I would become gay in a split second.

Mike’s expression on the third panel is so amazingly epic! It is the greatest panel ever and I applaud you for it.
