Whatever I want? Should have called dibs on a trip to Mike :3

Though I’m sure that wasn’t what was offered.

I’ve never really seen the attraction of shopping, to be honest; it doesn’t help me at all.

As for this not being about anything… correct and incorrect at the same time. The purpose of this arc was not to advance the plot but to establish characterization. Sandy has to congeal as a character before we can really feel Mike’s conflict; the more we see of Sandy, the harder it will be when her relationship with Mike eventually ends.

Not as bad as backwards car imo.
And this arc was a very important one even if it doesn’t seem like it. Now we see why Mike seems to love Sandy so much, and why he is so damn important to her. Nothing important happened? I think not, story just got a whole lot more interesting. Unless the playing field changes, someone is going to lose the love of their life by the end of the comic, and now we know just how important that is.

Aww, this page is oddly cute for some reason. This whole excursion into Sandy’s life has been a neat little diversion, I’ve gotta say. A quite welcome one, as well! This makes her seem much more real as opposed to simply a girl from Michael’s memories.

As always, a lovely page, though it makes me wonder just how this little arc is going to end.

Hey I think I found the mistake… Or two…

1. Sandy’s hand is backwards in the first panel.

2. Also in the first panel, her left arm is longer than her right.

It doesn’t really seem all that bad though, it took me awhile to see it.

I thought that about the dress too for a while there. I think it might just be her checking herself out though. It looks like all it would take to let it fit properly would be a little lowering of the tail.

random thinker: To be frank, if I were ever to redo BCB completely, I’d probably have human characters, but they’re animals because that’s how they were established many many years ago before I even HEARD about the furry community. So specially-tailored tail-holes sound really creepy to me :-[ I’m sure some clothes would need to have that but otherwise the character can just leave the tail low.

also fixed

Taeshi July 28, 2010, 8:13 AM EST.

Comment ID #66012

Ack, Taeshi, you’re too hard on yourself both on the story (which I agree with everyone else on, we needed to see what A Day in the Life of Sandy is like) and in the art. Go back and read your entire archives some time. Seriously, you’ve jumped from “eh, cute comic” to “WOW! The art is AWESOME!!”

I could offer a nice review… ah to hell with it, here it is:
Your comic stunning, as of today. Seriously, it really is up there in quality. In fact, I’d rate this equal to Rick Griffin’s “Housepets!” in terms of cute and equal (if not higher (don’t kill me, please!)) to Tom Fishbach’s “TwoKinds” in terms of drama. However, that’s not to say that you’ve just copy and pasted offa two great works and gone “woohoo I has popularity!” Your defining feature is you massive love dodecahedron between Lucy, Mike, Paulo, Sandy, Abbey, Daisy, and Tessa. In other words: everyone has a crush on someone else in the group. Moving on, you employ this feature of your work to great effect. It’s not just a soap opera in comic form, Bittersweet Candy Bowl literally delves into the deep philosophical ideas that writers have been trying to describe to parents in self-help books for the last 30 years!


Unlike many other webcomics (that do it for the lulz), Bittersweet Candy Bowl literally makes you think about love, life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness (no, I did NOT just pull those out of my butt) on every single page. And don’t go saying that it’s all because of Souppy’s scripts. A good script can go completely down the drain without a good artist (example: The Last Airbender coulda done good. It decided to flop instead). It is YOUR ARTISTIC ABILITY that really pulls the story and the message through. Hell, if you weren’t drawing this, I’m pretty sure we wouldn’t get the point each time we read. The Confrontation arc? Yeah, if you weren’t drawing that we’d probably be going “WTF is Lucy doing?!”. Instead, your excellent portrayal of their friendship in Lucy’s behavior and attitude toward Mike gave us an excellent idea of who Lucy was. Hence, I’m pretty sure the vast majority of your readers got shivers when Lucy went and defended Mike, almost getting raped. Examples in the rest of your work abound. I thought that “Another Shoulder” was particularly stunning in the way you portrayed Lucy, her angst, and Paulo’s conflicting feelings between “SEX SEX SEX” and “Moral Duty!!”.

So you see, you really blow a lot of the interwebs out of the water. Don’t be so hard on yourself!!

PS: One thing I’d like to see tho: Lucy in combat gear with a bazooka. Just for kicks.
PPS: Sorry if I’m long winded…..

Bambalooza July 28, 2010, 9:09 AM EST.

Comment ID #66014

Taeshi, how are tail-holes creepy? If I think about it though, a race of creatures evolved with tails would probably never design pants and stick with skirts, kilts and toga-like clothes. Dealing with a tail would be such a pain with most human style clothes. Granted, Disney did the same design style with Maid Marian. Her tail was under her dress, with the tip poking out under the hem.

Well now I’m sad. All this time I thought this was a furry comic. No love. Your comic is far better with anthropomorphic than humans. Less to deal with in terms of race and religious drama. Besides, cats and dogs are more cute and more fun to look at than people.

It looks good to me, and I’d say most of us reading can say the same that you’ve improved greatly ever since the very beginning ^_^
So Don’t shoot yourself down, every artist does it, but its the critics who are the ones who do that, but theres alot more positives than negatives here, if any at all :)

Kyle July 28, 2010, 9:20 AM EST.

Comment ID #66016

A race of creatures evolved with ears at the top of their head wouldn’t use iPhones! There is a lot of suspension of disbelief involved here. Once you start covering all the bases, you end up spending a lot of your time obsessing over the details of your furry world and the comic turns into a great work like Housepets or Twokinds.

By the way, I should be careful to note that I don’t write all the scripts—just this chapter’s! I’m now acutely aware of the fact that it’s really quite hard to write a good comic for this series, and Veronica deserves almost all the credit for the imagination involved in doing that.

Taeshi: I have to agree with Bambalooza. You’re so much of a better artist than me (My best details are the basic outlines of things), and your story has kept me coming back for more of your brilliant story, so I don’t see why you keep hating on yourself. I lack your ability to draw a humanoid being.

Comment ID #66076

Some thing I have noticed, and thought I should explain to all of you wondering about the clothes. It is not necesarilly that only the main characters wear clothes, but that the as a people tend to only wear them when the situation warrents it. Such as: a required school uniform (Sandy now, Daisy’s cheer leading outfit), Dresses for modeling (Sandy), working clothes (Amaya at the theater during Paulo’s fling, and a couple of parents occasionally appearing), Dressing up for a special occasion (dates, prom, party, ect.), trying to look cool (a few secondary characters), and many more. But when typically being casual they wont wear more than accessories (like Paulo, Lucy and her bow, Mike and his scarf, Daisy and her necklace, ect.) and they don’t really NEED clothes because they are, you know, covered in fur. Although, when it comes to swimming, they seem to prefer to wear swim suits, even though logic would say they don’t need them since they are used to being clothe-less (as with David on the vacation at the beach, he thought her could go as is, since he never wears clothes anyways, but everyone else had stuff on, and teased him for not wearing anything for swimming), so maybe it is a tradition or something. Anyways, just wanted to point that out. Food for thought~

so i just found this comic and i LOVE it! i totally ship lucyxmike, but I do admit that if sandy had been introduced right at the beginning of the comic, i’d probably go for sandyxmike because i totally believe in long distance relationships (my boyfriend moved to china; i live in washington). i know that this might be reading waaaay into it, but I feel like that since sandy wasn’t introduced until later, we’re probably meant to favor lucyxmike because that’s we first know. does that make sense?

I am starting to see that there isn’t going to be some big plot twist involving Sandy, and that this chapter’s only purpose is to show what her life is like, to get us away from the idea of her being some mysterious person that we don’t know what they are up to…

Rhyme July 29, 2010, 1:08 AM EST.

Comment ID #66508

That may be, but you forget, we are supposed to think of these characters as real people since this comic reflects realistic drama. While Sandy was introduced later, you have to remember that Mike has known her since childhood, and that she was his first love that he never truly got over. Many would say that Lucy is his better choice since she has loyally been by his side this whole time, but from Mike’s point of view Lucy only wanted him for protection from loneliness, not as a romantic interest. He would have been more than willing to become romantically involved with Lucy, if she chose to open up and show it; but because she didn’t, he clung to Sandy’s past love to keep him sane, and kept hoping for both Sandy (to still feel the same way back) and Lucy (to confess). By the time Lucy FINALLY opened up and confirmed it, not just hinting at it, she had already pushed Mike so far away romantically that he had started to give up on her and was depending more on Sandy (much to his peers distress, since they all saw what he didn’t: Lucy working up the nerve to tell him). So if she really truly loves Mike and wants him to remain in her life instead of giving up on him and him giving up on her, she needs to fight harder for him than she would have had to if she confessed her love a few months earlier.

I think that about sums it up… Anybody wanna back me up? I tried to keep it MikexLucy and MikexSandy neutral…

I don’t want to read that.” Or because you think they are so off that they don’t deserve to be acknowledged? I did that one on long distance relationships on the last page that got a little discussion, and then clothes one awhile ago here that got nothing, no response at all. And then there’s one above…

I agree with Rhyme; the only problem with it is the question that everyone likes to ask~”Why did Mike crack when he did?” probably thinking logically that if he hadn’t gave up on Lucy before her outburst of love-they could have(had?) a chance. Then there are the responses saying “Mike doesn’t deserve anyone.” because of -How- he reacted to lucy rather than the timing. xD..and unfortunately, I feel for Mike and am biased torwards MikexSandy because I’m kind of dealing with a long distance relationship of sorts. On a random note, I think-MikexLucy mildly matches the long lost idea of AshxMisty from Pokemon relationship wise-or at least it used to.

Comment ID #66566

I gotta say Rhyme, going off your last insight in BCB workings, you raise a good point, and one I support myself. As far as LucyxMike goes, it’s a classic case of too little too late. Lucy waited too long to admit to her true feelings for Mike, and though I know that action took a lot of guts for someone with the issues she has, after so long, even the gutsiest of actions don’t amount to much. Let’s face it, she may have sincerely had feelings for Mike, but she still used him as an emotional crutch for most of their lives, and I think at this point all of his interest in her (and sympathy for her, imho), has been nearly all dried up. No matter how understanding a crutch may be, some form of resentment will eventually arise from being leaned on for so long and recieving very little in return. Now don’t get me wrong, Mike ain’t no saint in all this either. He had some major making up to do after all but abandoning Lucy during his and Sandy’s time together, and his posessiveness in “Cracks in the Ice” was totally uncalled for. As far as the former goes, I’d say at this point his debt is pretty much repaid, though I really have no good excuse for the latter other than he’s human…erm…figuratively speaking, that is. Honestly, though I know I’m gonna make some enemies saying this, I just can’t see much hope for any LucyxMike pairings in the future. The interest from both characters, though lingering in some ways, is all but gone as far as I can tell. There’s something tangible with Mike and Sandy though. From her I think he feels a genuine love not something that feels tainted and uncertain, and it certainly looks like Sandy does indeed love her Maishul. As I said before, if something doesn’t give soon in them getting to see eachother, there’s not much hope here…but as it stands, even with the difficulties, a MikexSandy pairing would make…well…more sense, if you ask me.

Anywho, I’ll cease my incessant rambling now, as I’m fairly certain if I continue I’ll delve into the realms of the nonsensical.

Also…MikexPaulo…totally shipping this as far as non-canon goes. :D

Yay! Feedback! Okay, serious now. I agree that both have been unfair to each other at times, and it was for personal interest, I don’t think Mike was in the wrong when confronting her about stuff she did. While he may not love her back (yet…maybe), he still does care for her, and so it was his lingering instinct to protect her that drove him. Just because he is uncertain about the relationship stuff doesn’t mean he is going to give up being a good friend, even though after denying her she is driving him away again. I also agree with if left on their own, Lucy won’t fight for Mike as she should, and Mike won’t give her the time of day; but the thing is, they aren’t on their own. They have a huge group of friends that are supporting Lucy and want things to work out between her and Mike, and Mike still hasn’t told Sandy what is going on. We don’t know how she will react when she finds out (because she also like Lucy, and regrets how Mike treats Lucy when he is with her) and if there are people pushing Lucy to try and pushing Mike to give Lucy the chance she deserves, I think it could definitely work out…

/me has a random thought that actually seems plausible.

Well, you know how Tessa is filthy stinkin’ rich and leaves at the end of this year for college? WELL, sending away parties happen to be very convenient plot sequences. SO, Tessa throws a party with her closest friends (ie: Paulo, Mike, Lucy, Sue, Daisy, Abbey, David, maybe McCain, and all associated hangers on) and spikes the punch.

Chaos ensues.

Between David trying to high-beam the chandelier, McCain spouting off random political nonsense, Paulo hitting on Daisy then getting into a fight with Abbey, Daisy, Sue, and Tessa don’t notice Lucy slip off.

Except for Mike.

In a semi-drunken state, he decides to follow her and finds her crying quietly on the patio/porch/deck. He sits down beside her. They have a few words involving love, life, and the pursuit of happiness.

Insert kissing scene that progresses to more… heated events.


See? It works!! Kinda…. I mean, it’s more of a drunken-impulse than a true romantic moment, but you can’t make out intensely with someone and say that it was “just a kiss”. Drama, angst, and girlfriend issues follow, and we have morez to the arcz.

just finished reading through the archives.

this. comic. is. awesome.

it is crazy, over dramatized, and overly complex. just. like. High School!

you have dealt with most of the problems high schoolers really have to deal with (not all there is no limit to how many problems high schoolers deal with) and you have shown realistic ways on how they deal with it.

even while you write your characters as rather realistic high schoolers, you are also able to use the fact that they are anthro’s quite humorously, while there is a lot of sad stuff in your comic there is also a lot of fun to.

there also seems to be a verrrrry devoted fan base, none of the other comics i read have this many and such detailed comments.

@ 8feet: Nice quote ^^

@Void and Rhyme, you made very good points. It’s somewhat of a tragedy for Lucy, though. I’m still hoping that she can find somebody, but not before she really grows as an independent character and learns how to stand alone. When that happens, I would be so happy for her to find someone who loves her back, because then I’ll know that she actually really loves him and it’s not just dependency. ^^

… O.O YOU ARE F**KING GENIUS! Seriously, nice work!
Edit: *facepalm* And then you had to ruin it by saying LucyxPaulo…

The thing is, Lucy is so emotionally unstable, I don’t think she could really become ‘independent’. She is always going to need someone, and Mike knows her better than anyone else. I don’t think it is a matter of Micheal questioning her love, it is just that he needs to see that she really wants it and isn’t going to make it blow up in his face, and not just because she thinks she is losing him… I guess the more I have talked and thought about it all, I have become MikexLucy… I like Sandy and all, but the whole long distance relationship and the time they have been apart, it just seems unlikely…

Lulz, sorry. *deletes LucyXPaulo*

Anyway, Jacking into your and Skygaze’s debate:
Love in the form of “I WANT YOUR KITTENS” (ie: romance, marriage, kiddies, etc.) does not necessarily have to happen for Mike to care for Lucy. True, he had a fairly hard crush on her back in 8th and part of 9th grade, but that’s not necessarily pre-requisite to “Here, cry on my shoulder”.

“Another Shoulder” is a good example: Paulo is more interested in Lucy being hotter than a tamale and isn’t exactly in love in the stereotypical shippable manner. However, he still provides a shoulder to cry on and ALMOST a way of escape (however terrifying it’d be in the morning). The same can be said of Abbey->Daisy (before they got together) and… well, maybe not David->Paulo, since I’m pretty sure Taeshi isn’t shipping yaoi pairings anytime soon.

Should I turn “A Wild Night Partying” (what I’ve named that concept up above) into a Fanfic?

Bambalooza July 29, 2010, 2:23 PM EST.

Comment ID #66800

Ya, I agree, they could still just be friends, but it seems like at this point Lucy wants all or nothing (because if Mike falls for someone else like he is, he will eventually leave Lucy) in order to keep Mike hers. Plus, they just seem so right for each other [fan moment, sorry]… Kinda like how Paulo and Tessa seem right for each other, if only Tessa would quit playing hard to get and let Paulo date her. (He would sure be less likely to do stupid things like sleep with 2 other girls and attempt a third) So ya…
Fanfic? What if it becomes real though? O.o

Rhyme July 29, 2010, 2:46 PM EST.

Comment ID #66806

All or nothing? At this point, I’m pretty sure Lucy would settle for: “I don’t hate you THAT much…”

Quote: “He KNOWS now!! We’ll never be the same again! He hates me so much….”
IE: “If Mike would just stop hating me….”

So no, I believe that canon shuts down that part of your argument….

Made for? Well, I dunno, the SandyXMike thing seems pretty fairy-tale-happy-ending so far, so the same argument can be made for SandyMike.

On the other hand, I’d say that Mike and Lucy are more of a case of “Opposites Attract” + “Deliciously Curvy Figure (Lucy)” + “Athletically Handsome (Mike)” + “Long Distance IDK (MikeXSandy = ??)” = MikeXLucy

“Stunningly Beautiful (Sandy)” + “Athletically Handsome (or cute, edited for age)(Mike) + “Way Too Much Time Together (where they spent so much time together that they ended up ignoring Lucy, but became really close friends in the process)” = MikeXSandy

We’ll have to see if Taeshi decides to take the concept. Maybe i should post it in the forums…

I know she would settle for mike “not hating her”, but if she wants to keep him with her, she is going to have to convince him and make it a relationship (all) or he is going to find someone else [Sandy] and eventually leave her (nothing). I meant that from Mike’s point of view, not Lucy’s.
If that makes more sense…

I knew I shouldn’t have taken sides… ^^;; Should have stayed neutral, cause otherwise it creates arguments…
I rescind my announcement! I am neither SandyxMike or LucyxMike… (like that will work v.v)

Eh. I use too much math, either way.

Ah, from MIKE’S point of view, that makes MUCH more sense. I mean, it’s effectively all or nothing, since Lucy and Mike can still be friends, but he’ll leave her to get married with Sandy and then they’ll have little kittens and Lucy’ll be all: aaaaaangst, I has a nobody.

Lessee… Paulo doesn’t like her that way, Abbey’s taken, Lucy isn’t into Dogs (David), Tessa’s female and I’m pretty sure Lucy only goes for guys, Final Fantasy Cat isn’t Lucy’s type, and…. urgh.

Short of a new character, I don’t think Lucy’s gonna find anyone else in their little group….

Agreed. Poor Lucy… What ever will she do? I hope for her sake she doesn’t give up on Mike…

Maybe she goes to the Emo Side?

…weird mental picture of Lucy+Spike-Mohawk+blackpainted nails+Black jeans+chains+black lipstick+earrings.

That’s more goth/punk than Emo, but either way, it’s a weird mental picture.

@ Bambalooza: You know what’s scary? That theory of yours is so…. tangible and canon. o_o Sheesh, anything can happen in this comic! Plus, Tess is bound to have a graduation party…

If you’re writing a fanfic on it, make sure and link it here so I can read it!!! 8D

@ Rhyme: You make a good point in that. It’ll be near impossible for Lucy to remain in a healthy friendship with Mike, if he ever does go the whole way with Sandy. Either Mike and Lucy get together, or their relationship might as well be considered null. Unless, that is, Lucy does get over her dependency issues, but that will be near impossible to overcome. I mean, this problem of her’s has been going into her Sophomore year. If she’s not going to end up with Mike, then I’m wondering if she’s going to end up finding anyone at all. Paulo doesn’t seem like the kind of person who’s going to settle. Ever.

Maybe I should just join the little “SHE SHOULD TOTALLY START A BAND WITH ZACK” club.

I have been thinking (which usually leads to overcomplicated ideas). What if Sandy is actually closer to Mike than he realizes? Like the next town over or something?

He was a guest appearance. A character a friend of Taeshi’s made up and she did is for fun, I believe. He was not meant to appear again.

… That image is haunting… @.@ *trying to unsee*

Yay, another person looking at this realistically rather than who would make the cutest couple. I was starting to fear Bambalooza and I were the only ones (that voiced it anyways). And I couldn’t agree with you more.

He knows the city where she lives, and it is a long ways away. They have said the name of it a few times, and Mike could probably point to it on a map. It is nowhere near the town that the BCB group lives in.

Rhythm, if you want feedback on a theory/thought etc do it on the forums. That’s what it’s for. Doing it in this comment system is stupid because it’s hidden in the first place and some don’t give a ****.

(Found the comic and its too awesome to not continue to read it C: )

aaaaaaannyywway i think Lucy needs to find someone other then those in their “group”, someone like Abbey (cus hes so caring) but someone that can handle a lot of punching! (OH MAH GAWD LUCY ATTACK!)
Srsly, i think that LucyxMike wont work (even if i want to) probably cus Mike is so stuck with sandy in his thoughts, 90% of his brain is only Sandy :o

@Taeshi; Im a new reader and i absolutely love this comic :D (btw i c you point out a lot that you suck, u dont… okey?)

@Rhyme; I dont usually write anything myself but i like to read others discussion, so just keep up the good work! <( ^.^ )>

An artist’s or writer’s or musician’s biggest and most honest critic is himself/herself.
