Author commentary

Veronica: Here’s something I wanna mention that’s been bugging me.. basically Katie plopped down onto her knees in the panel where Lucy’s flung onto stage. Katie didn’t just magically get her shins blown off, but it still looks kind of awkward. I hope that you can see what I mean!

Sue used Lucy Toss! And... I don’t think it was that effective, but it’s hilarious anyway.

Hehe, and yep, Lucy interpretation skills are totally over the top. Seems like Jessica “likes to call people by the colour of their eyes ala certain mysterious villain” is getting a bit tired of Sue criteria for choosing the cast.

Weeeee, forums.

Has Lucy even noticed Mike yet? I’m not so sure, especially ‘cause if she had, she probably would’ve said something like “I don’t wanna audition WITH HIM”.

Just one more thing to add, ‘till I offline for a few hours; The “Augustus being a jerk” incentive? D*****************MN. That is the strangest mix of cruelty and hilarity I have ever seen. I don’t know whether to laugh at his delivery, or cry for the characters’ sake... And in turn, I don’t know if I’m a good person for caring about them, or a bad person for wanting to laugh at their suffering. Also, I don’t know if I’ve ever been this uncertain before...

Augustus may be a jerk, but I think I like/hate him a little more right now. I’m not entirely sure, though. ^^

I love Lucy’s expression and tail in panel 5. Wish we could see that without the speech bubble. Actually, I just want to see a bigger image of that not obscured by anything else.
As for the incentive, well… Sephiroth cat shows his true colors!
Taeshi, have you considered re-posting old voting incentives on the site? For those of us just joining, it’s a shame not to be able to eventually see the stuff that the established readers have gotten to see, as well as for people who travel or otherwise can’t get on to vote everyday/every other day. Maybe you could put a week’s delay or something from the time the incentive is active to the time it gets re-posted for everyone. Precocious does something like that where the old incentives end up in a separate archive so people can go back and comment on them.

Is that suppose to be the middle finger?(sorry bad sense of perception) cus if it is that’s most likely what i would do if a random person ran at me yelling then started to drag me on to a stage. That and possibly round house kick them if i did not relies who it was right away.

Again, she probably wrote the play so Mike and Lucy didn’t need to act for the roles.
(Probably a lot of room for improvising if she’s that confident on pushing the two together)

Wow… That was the greatest acting I’ve ever seen ever!
BTW- I’ve just had a realisation of why Sue would do this instead of trying to get them back to gether/ get Lucy to sing/ make them friends again.
Maybe the play woulf have people constantly fight? Who better that someone who will probably kill all his friends out of frustation and the girl who almost banged Paulo beacause she’d been rejected by him?

P.S. Whoo BCB reached rank 2 on ComicHovel!
P.P.S. Not that ull care but I went on ur ‘which character are you’ quiz and some words have kind of ‘glitched’ and now just spam random numbers,letters, and symbols which I think is Bull-S+7*.
P.P.P.S… Don’t know what to say I just like typing P’s :D

Astonishing acting indeed. Never have I Seen such bravery.
