Veronica: New chapter time, so far it’s a similar pattern to the beginning of Freshman year. Only better-drawn. I’d hope. Anyway, enjoy this rollercoaster.

Veronica fell asleep, so it was up to me to figure out a colour scheme for this one. Hope you like pale hot pink!

Yay, lucy’s relatives have re-appeared after so very long!

I vote they were involved in some kind of hiking accident which meant they had to eat their guide in order to survive long enough to be rescued.

That, or they we couldn’t see them for all this time.

Lucy’s mom went back in time to ensure that Lucy ends up with Mike. Her alias: Sue.

Is anyone else bothered by the fact that Lucy shaves her armpits even though she’s a cat and is completely covered with fur…?

Bucket November 5, 2010, 1:44 AM UTC.

Comment ID #121296

It’s Justin! Wearing his nifty goggles! :D

I love the no dialog on this page, it allows for a quick time lapse of Lucy’s morning. Oh, and a quick appearance from Lucy’s mom!

PS, Hey Bucket, I think that’s just a bar of soap.

I really think it would be funny if Mike just charged into the second panel to save Lucy from the water … but he doesn’t take his promise quite so literally.

Errr, is Lucy brushing her teeth in panel 3 then eating breakfast in panel 5? *tisk tisk*

Nex Owl May 19, 2011, 10:22 AM UTC.

Comment ID #162524

Panel 5: I count three cats. Does Lucy have a sister, or a brother, or something? I saw the mother, but there’s a third cat wearing some kind of shirt.

Who brushes their teeth before they eat? You’d think you’d do it after, since you’ll optimize freshness of breath and not get a weird taste in your mouth when you try to eat.

Justin cameo. :)

Lucy has a family? 8-D

Seriously, we see so little of the kids’ families that I started thinking the kids lived in some creepy parentless universe.

We got rid of all the grups!

I’m not usually one to post links on a webcomic (Especially to music) but I found this song recently, and I feel like it’s the most fitting song to describe Lucy and Mike. Especially this chapter in particular. To anyone who hears it, enjoy. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GDRtqQ-gmMs
