I hadn’t noticed the particulars of the eyes in the last two panels in the RSS feed; I like how you’ve distinguished male/female here in contrast to how much is the same (purposefully) in the rest of page.

For some reason half the backgrounds were missing! It was a pain to get it fixed, but Souppy finally did it ;__; It’s hard doing it on a small laptop that is all “HARD DRIVE SPACE FULL” so sorry about the delay.

Souppy always fixes my delightful blunders.

Nice chapter !
it was a bit sketchy,but i think that i have said that about every “end of year/new year” chapter you did.
i think you still need to work on your digital art skills,if you don’t mind me saying.
but,you’ll just gradually improve at it like you did with the pencil,i think.
still,this isn’t as well drawn as it could have been…
no offense,but “Wonderland” was way better(color aside.),and so was “New beginnings”.
all’n all your style of drawing is a bit inconsistent at the moment.
it seems your still experimenting,right ?.

one thing though did stand out,the dialog !
Wow ! the whole thing was beautifully written ! kudos !
it was touching without being corny,and realistic,but not too much,so as not to be dull.
really wonderful.

i’m glad i contained myself and read it in it’s entirety,rather than reading it page by page as it came out.
and i cant wait for the next one !
(also if i hadn’t said it before,happy birthday Lil !)

Alls I know is, she didn’t scream-cry into her pillow like one vampire loving girl when faced with rejection. But I guess that just goes to show who’s a strong character and who isn’t. Ha.

I bet next chapter Lucy is going to crack after her hedgehog says something.
She’ll say “If I can’t have Mike no one can!” and one thing lead too another until we find Mike dead with Lucy holding a bloody axe.
Also seem too be doing necrophiliac.

Plus it is true that his girlfreind is in a far distance relationship and she is a model and breaks promises with her ” boyfreind ” if she loved him she would have kept them and did her modeling career last, so my dear watson my thesis is that she is in fact doing the two-timing yes two-timing i mean mike and lucy are totally ment to be together does anybody agree with me on this fact

Although that does bring up a good question, though… IS Sandy slated for any screen time? She’s been waiting in the wings so long, I wouldn’t blame her for falling asleep!

I complement him on his loyalty but COME ON!!!!!! she lives hundreds of miles away while Lucy is right there, was with you for like a few years while Lucy has been with you for most of your life, you dont really socialize with her that much while you speak with Lucy everyday, and you both OBVIOUSLY feel for eachother!

Living in a shell with no soul,

Zacharo July 11, 2010, 5:05 PM EST.

Comment ID #60841

That’s PERFECT…!
As much as I love and relate to Lucy, I have to say she definitely brought this upon herself. There was ample opportunity to open up to Mike before, but she squandered that in fear of rejection. But hindsight is always 20/20, so I suppose it is a moot point.

Though it makes you wonder if Lucy ever really had a chance with Mike? I mean, Mike did once have feelings for Lucy, but to what extent were those feelings just a placeholder for what he had with Sandy? Who’s to say that when Sandy got back in touch, Mike wouldn’t have rejected Lucy anyways?

But then, who’s to say that Mike and Sandy might not work out? But even if that WERE that case, I don’t see Lucy falling so low as to forgive Mike for what he does.

Ah God this is humorous in a totally heart wrenching way.

Hate to break it, but without some major personality changes Lucy x Mike won’t work. Lucy is trying, but she still has the horrible habit of fighting, competing, and _hitting_ Mike to the point it’s a reflex. As best friends that can still work out, but it would turn marriage into a living hell if the problem doesn’t go away completely BEFORE getting married/together/[insert term that implies dedicated lifelong commitment here].

*Sigh* There was no way that could have ended well.

Seriously though… The author of this comic is starting to almost scare me. This entire comic is basically my life with Michael being me. And he and I have the same first name! Right down to this very situation and the decision that he just made… I’ve got chills… Almost starting to think I’ve got a stalker or something…

…And yet… I’m compelled to read more.

Mike, You are the most idiotic person in the world. So, sure Sandy is attractive, and your first love, but Lucy is, always has been, and always will be there for you, and she poured her heart out to you. If I were you, I’d dump Sandy like a Searing red hot rock and admit my feelings for Lucy. You sir are the weakest link in BCB, Hope you die, or get hit with the Reality Check Stick and fall in love with Lucy, ya jack-***.

Woah, now that I looked back at this chapter, it’s less dramatic than I thought; Mike wasn’t that much of a dick after all, in fact he was pretty nice.
But things turn so much worse from now on, it’s almost depressing. ;_;

Yeah, they should have kissed. But Mike’s an honorable guy and he can’t really forget that he does have a girlfriend, and it’s not like he doesn’t love her too, and it’s not like dating Sandy isn’t a nice, stable, reliable relationship where nobody gets called a jerkface, even if it is long-distance. He’s not going to tell Sandy “sorry you wasted all those years since third grade waiting for me, I’m going to dump you now because I can actually touch Lucy” and he’s certainly not going to cheat on her. At least, not unless Lucy starts trying a lot harder to press her advantage.

i agree with Ally, Mike regretted that, and lucy, well acted how i thought she might, It’s so obvious Mike loves her too, but he’s torn between her and sandy, and that’s why i hate her, i really hate her! ;_; :(

Again, when did Lucy and Mike actually get family members? I don’t think it was ever explained. :O

I feel so bad for both of them…Especially Lucy. Hope things go well. But don’t pull a Daisy and act like a *****. That’ll get you into a worse position.

I don’t see how anyone can look at this page and believe Mike is happy to callously destroy Lucy’s world. But he can’t very well avoid it without being unfaithful, so he just hides his feelings behind anger instead. There, problem solved, the Lucy way.

Well it happened again. The least he could do would be to stop talking to awkward. I’m in the same grade (hypothedecally of course, they’re cartoon characters) and I can at least hold a composure…Not hating here. Just Saiyan ;)

And this is where my respect for him dies.

I thought he might see sense if directly confronted or something….

But I was let down.

Sandy needs to get together with him and show she’s gotten some nasty habits or something. They can’t idealize something from so far back…. Even if they’ve kept correspondance, it won’t be right. Those puzzle pieces won’t fit.

Please don’t do that to us, Sandy ain’t the right one. And I’m hoping with all this angst with Lucy and Mike that it’s not in vain. I rather like the sweet of this bittersweet candybowl…

It’s painful to say goodbye to someone you don’t wanna let go,

But more painful to ask someone to stay, when you know they wanna leave.

Don’t know where it’s from, but i think that’s something Lucy would agree on :)

The first time I read this I thought Mike was a total douche. But on my second read of the comic, I realize that he couldn’t do anything else. He is in a relationship. What is he supposed to do? Tell Lucy he loves her while he also loves Sandy?

great idea putting Lilly in the last panel and the bonsai tree in the one before. without the scarf of bow I would have no idea who was who. not that it TECHNICALLY matters, as they are in the same situation, but it helps to know who’s who.
