Under a tree!
And then very frustrated. :(

Things aren’t looking too hot.
Two more pages, man! Two more!

That one girl running behind Sandy in panel five makes me think of Carter.

I know this is just a comic but DAMN, you have got to give Sandy and Mike credit for staying together this long. a long distance relationship can work but only under two conditions; 1 the couple see each other at least once a year. 2 the split is less than 3 years. I wonder what drastic measures she might take…….

Wow so she does get hit on alot… Anyways I think the main point of the locker is just to show how stressed out she is, maybe its because she might have been acting what superficially as we seen at the office, idk but the stress shes having is coming from somewhere, maybe the long distance relationship is killing her idk but the story becomes very intense now.
By the way great work on a all picture story, many comics fail to do so, but this works great.

sorry to go off topic :/

Just wondering, is this utter ********* who’s almost definitely the same guy from Confrontation (btw, if none of this makes sense, go back to “Misunderstanding and Change” and read through it), actually Roger? because if they aren’t the same person that just leaves a load of plot holes for me. Taeshi isn’t the kind of person to have inexplicable villains just appearing out of nowhere. Unless you count Carter… *shudders* crazy stalker. And FIINALLY, just before “Wonderland”, is Lucy serious about Carter? Or was it just a dream inside a dream?? I’m so confused!! *serious angst flipout*

Ah Taeshi. You definitely know how to craft a story. AND! I think I now understand at least one thing about Sandy’s mom. She seems to be exactly like those terrible pageant moms you see on occasion. You know, the one who only sees their child as a way for the parent to get famous, and then they fall short on the parenting department. Correct me if I’m wrong, though. Hate to be spreading false info on here.

Locker discipline is very important. I’ve been in this kind of relationship. It’s tough. Take heart fictional cat people at least your S.O. isn’t active duty in the army. Not trying to be down though, this is amazing writing.

All the Mike haters need to stop and think for a sec. “Love the one you’re with” may be a nice song and all, but “I walk the line” are words to live by.

I do like Sandy now, she reminds me too much of me, I often get frustrated unable to see my love as much as I want due to the long distance relationship (thank god I get to see him this tuesday), I still like Lucy x Mike but no longer hate Sandy.

This is so sad, though I’m probably reading a lot more into the locker issue. It’s like, everything about her is so perfect, she has to be perfect, she has to be what her mommy wants her to be and when she doesn’t do something flawlessly (like when she couldn’t get her locker open on the first try) she feels so trapped in the nagging demands of her mother. >.> again, maybe I’m just reading a lot into it.

Seems like all the expectations thrown upon her are getting to her.

Too bad her mother seems focused on living vicariously through her instead of trying to guide her on the path she wants to go.

It won’t rain all the time
The sky won’t fall forever
And though the night seems long
Your tears won’t fall forever :(

When I’m lonely
I lie awake at night
And I wish you were here
I miss you :)
Can you tell me, is there something more to believe in?
Or is this all there is? >:|

And the pounding feet in the
In the streets below and the
And the window breaks and
And a woman falls, there’s
There’s something wrong, it’s
It’s so hard to believe that love will prevail :blush

It won’t rain all the time
The sky won’t fall forever
And though the night seems long
Your tears won’t fall
Forever :( :blush:

after rereading this chapter so far it seams that sandy, much like lucy, has a dependency issue regarding mike. think about it, they have been apart for how long? i moved around an lot when I was a kid and things were never that depressing. it also seemed like sandy’s only friend was daisy and after sandy started hanging out with mike she stops hanging out with daisy. now at this new school she only has one friend… highly suspicious.

I too moved around as a lot as kid, as a pre-teen, and as a teen. And unlike you, I found it very stressful. In fact, the constantly being torn from friends always put me into a depression, even more so since it was hard to make new ones, and the so called “friends” I had before rarely ever spoke to me again. The ones that do gradually lose interest or are to busy, and things aren’t the same, which leaves me forgotten. I find that I have to change myself with each new place, in order to fit in with the groups and interest of the area, if I find new friends at all.

Which is why I think there is something to be said for Lucy’s loyalty all those years, even if it was selfish. Though I have to give kudos to Micheal for staying in touch with Sandy, people change when they move, and I think he needs to look a little closer to home…

@Rhyme I see where you’re coming from. But I’m not sure if everyone else (especially those in the LucyxMike vs. SandyxMike war) are going to see that as the sensible remark that it is. I still wonder what’s going to happen. Is it bad I give relationship advice to an imaginary Mike in my head?

@ Rhyme:

I’m sorry you had to go through that. it does suck having to move around a lot. I guess it was easier for me cause I had 5 brother & sisters. that’s not to say that I didn’t care about the friends that I left behind. I did miss them and still ever now and again wonder how they are doing.

that being said, I still think that there may be something more going on with sandy than we think.

Sen July 27, 2010, 5:57 PM EST.

Comment ID #65621

Ya, I didn’t mean that comment as siding on LucyxMike in that debate, simply applying real life experience. I think that they are picturing each other as they were in elementary school; however, distance, time, and not being there to see the change gradually might mean that the person they meet isn’t quiet who they imagined to be. That doesn’t mean they wont like this new person as well, just that there is always that chance. Mike is taking a big risk with Sandy, who he hasn’t actually seen since he was little, when he has someone close he has known all a long that loves him, has always been with him, and if he showed interest back would be willing the change for him. And for those that are going to argue that Mike hasn’t changed, if you compare him now to how he was in the beginning (as I have since I sat and spent all yesterday reading the entire comic since I was new to and ended up liking it), you will see he has slowly become more stoic.

I realize that this is indeed a comic, and that I am applying real life things to something fictional, but isn’t this a comic about teen-life? Not the fluff and fairy tail teen-life we see on “reality” television, because plenty of what I read here, I have seen in some form at the many schools I have attended. And, secretly, I am kind of jealous of all of it; because even with the drama and heartbreak and angst that the BCB group has to deal with, they still have a group of friends as close as family that would do anything for each other, which I would have killed for when I was going through school…

Edit: @ Sen
Ya, you still had company and support (or not really, depends on the family xD), and while I have two little sisters, there is an eleven year difference between us in age, which wasn’t much help. So, typically, I spent a few summers (which is how the moving always worked out, right after school) alone in foreign places. And am now doing it again as I head off to college that I know no one at. I am not trying to say “Oh, look how worse off I was, so you must be wrong,” I am just trying to show the different sides to moving.
Oh, I agree there is defiantly more going on, but based on what we know of Sandy so far, I wouldn’t hold my breath. At least until Taeshi shows us more.

I dunno, I agree with Elliot and Sen, I think there is more going on here then her just “losing her cool”.
Like… (dun hate, I am just trowing random stuff out there, and the later ones are just me being rediculous)
Her mom has been saying no to visiting Maishul? She wants to break up but been reluctantly dragging Maishul along because she doesn’t want to hurt his feeling? Depression from not being able to be with her cuddly-kitty? She is leading a double life with another boy, and feels guilt? Or! She is secretly Carson in disguise (Gasp!) and is conflicted on whether or not to tell the truth to Micheal! (Sorry, had to throw that last one in for humor ^w^)

I think She”s just frustrated all to heck by how busy and presured her life is and she cant do the things she really wants, like see Mike because her mother is pushing her so hard and she’s so busy. I think she’s close to having a nervous breakdown :(

Not to mention that a young body like that isn’t supposed to take that amount of stress, it could phisically harm the kid.

Daaaaaaaaaaw :3 The past few installments have just been so melancholic with Lucy’s and Paulo’s actions when it comes to their romantic emotions. I’m a pretty big MikeXLucy fan and not to keen on PauloXLucy in the slightest. So the domino effect of Lucy’s rejection really tore at me at first. It left me wondering if Mike’s patience with Sandy was really worth it at this point. So far this chapter has really shown that Sandy must be feeling as worrisome as Mike is, and yet she’s been faithful and supportive of Mike. Gosh, this comment is so sappy, but I think I’ve converted to MikeXSandy. I LOVE TessXPaulo, but Paulo’s a bit too far up **** creek for that to feel possible. I still love Lucy’s character, so whatever happens with her, as long as she’s happy in the end, I’ll enjoy at this point, I think. Anyways, that comment lasted waaaaaay too long, so I’ll cut it as short (pfft, yeah right) as I can. Keep up the good work!

The way I see it, this frustration is the natural outcome of the life she’s been living, all work and little down time, always expected to be perfect at everything, always rising and never taking the time to enjoy the fact that you’ve risen, ever upward never to enjoy what you have, as if the meaning of life was financial success….

Oh, how sorry I feel for you, Sandy.
