Author commentary

Veronica: IF YOU THOUGHT THE FIRST PANEL BEFORE WAS SHIT WAIT UNTIL YOU SEE THIS ONE oh god someone gave me suggestions on page one of halloween how to be less shit at backgrounds and unfortunately this whole chapter was done in advance. One of my biggest weaknesses. I hope that by the end of BCB I would have conquered it.

A preview of the upcoming BCB page.

Lucy envies Sandy, the one Mike set his sights on. She tried to redeem herself in his eyes, but after years of neglect and use as a punching bag for her anger have set him on a track of believing she can never be anything but that. So he turned to Sandy, wanting to get into a relationship where he wasn’t the victim. In their time together, Lucy became bitter and sad, her emotions completely breaking down.
When Sandy had to leave, Mike drifted back to Lucy, feeling empty. Lucy, her emotional pallete all scrambled, fell back to the tactic she had used for so long: anger. Thus she hurt Mike more, both physically and mentally. Mike’s obvious response was to cling to the image of Sandy, which only made Lucy hit harder to get him to pay attention to her, a vicious cycle in the making.
Of course, they ARE teenagers, so their moods are all messed up - meaning that the cycle is equally trashed. Until the cloud of hormones and the ‘he likes _’ ‘he dosent like me’s leaves when they turn like 23, I’m betting they’re still going to be angsty and embarrased and stuff to each other. At 23 or so, they’ll probably just kinda implode the cycle and all just be friends.
Basically, the only thing I would blame for this whole angst-fest is the excessive amounts of hormones Taeshi drew into Lucy (and Mike). YAY HORMONES!
……………. I have no idea why I said this.
And there’s BittersweetCandyBowl in a nutshell! That’s all, folks! :D

That’s gotta be Abbey for sure. Who else would be so polite to Paulo in that situation?

Also don’t worry tae, you will conquer the backgrounds before bcb ends.

Mike seems pretty deceased to me. But he can’t die…he is CAThulhu after all.

And that Yashi, she will figure out who that Sandy is sooner or later.

I use to prefer Lucy x Mike but after that Sandy arc I must change my mind. I have a long distance relationship, we do meet irl every month or so for a week + He’s in sweden and im in UK. And I would be heartbroken if he ever dumped me for some other girl, especially if I had done nothing to of deserved it. I don’t see distance as a reason for dumping someone unless its going to be that way forever. Sandy seems very sweet and in love and Mike has no reason to go dumping her for other girls.

Somehow, the song “I Fight Authority” by John Mellencamp comes to mind at Paulo’s total apparent submission to the idea of a policeman. XD But seriously, Paulo, man up a bit. Jazzy’s watchin ferChrissakes.

Also, yikes, looks like Yashy is catching on to something here. Can’t keep your children in the dark forever Lucy. And trying to pu the fear of God in them only works when your anger is genuinely directed at them. She knows that you’d never hurt her or punish her without good reason.

Comment ID #121363

i think the first panel got bi-polar. If you ignore the background and assume they’re walking on flat ground, it’s fine and it works. however, if you look at the sidewalk and lucy, you can notice that ALSO works - you drew her from a top-down angle, which is how we’re seeing the sidewalk. It’s kind of like an optical illusion, with two views at once. that doesn’t work when you look at the other characters, though, they look like they’re on a higher plane than lucy.
the way to fix that is to be definitive in the angle: do you want a top-down view, or a “paulo is in front, everything behind him diminishes’ view? In theory, both are very different, but it’s kind of psychological in that you have to believe they’re different and not let your finished product trick you into thinking its two perspectives at once. did that make sense?

I would recommend looking at mike - he’s parallel to the ground, right? so let him dictate the lines and angle of where the sidewalk would be. He’s angled back, the sidewalk’s sloping down. it’s a complex angle, but don’t give up.

Did… did Paulo drop Mike… and start crying? He needs to take off the custume before it binds to his genetic code! He’s turning into the real thing! RUN AWAY!

I feel sorry for mike because i had a sorta like same situation except for eating drugs and stuff
but it’s really hard for mike to keep focused on sandy even though he does love her he also knows he will still keep a place somewere for lucy
just the fact that she’d hit him so often doesn’t have to mean anything

I know because i have a girlfriend who does the same only instead of hitting me she claws my arm open xD
i got over 20 scars now thanks to her but evn though she does thet i still love her and mike should just the same with lucy

Poor Lucy. I can imagine what she’s going through. She’s lucky to have good friends to help her through this.

On an unrelated note, Paulo seems to have lost Jasmine. And we also see that he’s a wuss when it comes to the police-ok, after the way the “officer” speaks to Paulo, it’s obviously Abbey-but I think that someone’s scared of jail. A lot.

Abbey is probably mad at Paulo and Jasmine for scaring the little kids.

Something which has always bothered me is Lucy hiding from Yashy the fact that Mike already has a girlfriend. The rationale given by Lucy is that Yashy is too young and naive to understand the truth. However, Yashy has said on more than one occasion that Lucy and Mike should have coitus, so how naive can she be? Yes, Yashy clearly has a lot invested in the Lucy/Mike pairing, but I think it’s time Lucy stopped hiding things and simply told Yashy the truth (which she would eventually have to do anyway). Of course Yashy will be angry about the whole thing at first, but I think in time she’ll come to accept reality. Who knows, Yashy might even develop a modicum of respect for Mike for staying true to Sandy and not fooling around with Lucy. I mean, what else is Yashy going to do? Fly to Rickter and kill Sandy?

To Taeshi: I like artists who feel self conscious about their work. Lets me know they’ll only get better and never get a big head.
That being said, IMHO The sidewalk/street thing here actually works. It gives the appearance of us looking down on the kids from an angle. Interestingly enough, the sidewalk does get smaller as it reaches the top. May be by accident, but I still honestly don’t see the screw up there.
Then again you could be referencing something else I’m not seeing, in which case the error is still obscure enough that i haven’t picked up on it (for what its worth though, cause I’m notorious at not noticing details).

Also,@Snerky,I think he was either acting out how he figured his eulogy would read when he did actually die (although it seemed a little….rehearsed).Or he was severely messed up and a split personality formed in his mind which he called Sandy….I don’t know,don’t quote me on it.

It’s Abbey dressed up as Abraham Lincoln.

Also, Yashi will find out and beat the snot out of mike. AYU BEAAAAM!!!!

On a side note:

Mike and Lucy are by far the best combination. They’re the main characters and have been so since the beginning of the story.

Also, in the chapter where you see Sandy going to work and stuff, and then talking to Mike over the phone, you see that she spends most of her time working, and dedicates just a while to talk to Mike, while Mike doesn’t even live without thinking of Sandy. Jeez, even while drugged, in the end, he could only think of Sandy. That’s certainly unfair.

It’s like,


Mike: I don’t. I’d rather love a girl who is on the other side of the planet, and whom I haven’t physically been with since early middle school! :D

Lucy: D’:>

I hope either Mike or Sandy understand that this is not going to work, and that Lucy’s love is finaly accepted.

Pretty sure the whole not telling Yashy thing is more to do with Lucy’s feelings than Yashy. Its like if Yashy finds out about Sandy, Lucy is admiting defeat. Even if Mike is just pretending to be nice for Yashy’s sake, Lucy still prefers that to being completley hated and ignored.

Or maybe i’m reading into it too much I dont know XD

I totally agree with you,
because Sandy just talks to Mike when she has a break or something,and Lucy is being ignored all the time,and she is sick of it.. i know it. The only person that has payed more attention to Lucy,is Paulo.. but Paulo is with Jasmine.. so Lucy is allll alone in the corner having a emo moment.. waiting for someone to notice her.. alll alone..in the corner. And then theres Abbey.. at least he actually cares about people.. that is why Abbey is awesome.. and it would be so funny if he was Abraham Lincon.. xD lol
I bet Sandy would show up in this or the next chapter..

What? do I read right, @cats4ever98 and @boom?

Lucy, from the very beginning has been bugging Mike, being downright cruel sometimes, calling him names and much more. He has supported her in her entire life.

Also, EVERYONE is constantly telling Lucy that she is not alone and she has other friends.

Now, let’s see other characters opinion about Mike:
Daisy -> thinks Mike is a jerk for finally defending himself against Lucy’s constant abuse.
David -> couldn’t care less about him. Even when he’s supposedly dead.
Paulo -> thinks very lowly of Mike and is never ever nice in any way to him.
Abbey -> thinks he HAS to date Lucy because, ahn, its his obligation.
Tess -> same as Abbey.
Lucy -> Thinks Mike is a jerk because he rejected her feelings. Because he HAVE to love her.

Mike’s the one that’s all alone.
And, about the Sandy chapter… WTF? She spends most of her time working without even thinking about Mike? Have you really read the chapter? Really? It seemed to me that Sandy is on the verge of a breakdown, all stressed about work, to be free from all that, wanting to be with Mike, but being responsible.

She has done NOTHING wrong.

I’m not particularly a “Lucy-Sandy” fan, but I really think Sandy has been by far the best consolation for Mike in the latest chapters…

What saddens me most is that probably Mike is going to end up with Lucy.
I really hope, Taeshi-san, that Lucy changes into a better person, before that.

look, if you 3 are going to duke it out, take it outside- I mean… to the forums… yeah…

I personally think that Lucy and Mike are both being jerks to each other right now and Mike’s looking for comfort with Sandy, which there’s nothing wrong with because he’s technically dating her. Although, instead of predicting future events, I’d rather patiently wait until what happens happens.

It’s Abbey. Big whoop.

Also, I just can sympathize with Lucy because almost every time Mike imagines Sandy as someone nearby, it’s Lucy. She’s probably pretty pissed that he always superimposes his love onto her when she loves him. The only exception is the one time he hugs Blur thinking it’s Sandy.

It’s a matter of opinion. The judge, jury and executioner here is Taeshi, and until she finishes the story, we’ll have to suck it up and wait. All writers are god in their stories, so it all depends on her.

Also, quoting:
‘Lucy, from the very beginning has been bugging Mike, being downright cruel sometimes, calling him names and much more. He has supported her in her entire life.’

1- Lucy was so insecure of herself when she was younguer, that she thought that if she opened herself to others, she’d be seen as a weak person. To compensate for that, she was agressive and violent.

2- Downright cruel sometimes, yes, but I think that jumping into a river to try and save him and drown while doing so (thus developing a paralyzing fear to water) is a pretty good payback.

3- I will agree to the fact that Mike has been a better person than Lucy, but that doesn’t change the fact that she’s done good things as well. I mean, if she hadn’t been there after Sandy left, Mike would be an emo bastard crying in a corner with nobody to call a friend. Paulo was a dick, David was with Paulo, Abbey wasn’t there yet, and the other girls were too girlish.

Also, if you remember ‘Confrontation’, Lucy gets beat up for Mike. Yet another proof of her not being a completeley bad person.
Plus, in the end, Mike says:
‘I’ll always try to protect you, but it meant so much that you’d do the same for me. For helping, I don’t think I could ever repay you. Not in a million years’.
I think he could repay her instantly by actually accepting her love.

After that comes a kiss, which Mike seems to enjoy. Where are those feelings now, hmm? hmmmmm? HMMMMMMMMM?!?!?!?!?!
