Ohhhh, I get it. I’m probably just slow, but she’s sad since he isn’t even going to bother trying to surprise her (or so she thinks at this point at least). But Jesus, she looks terrible in final panel, and I don’t mean art wise.

Do you know what will happen if Mike suddenly shows up trying to surprise Lucy?
She’ll act “tough” and tell him he’s a jerkface that can’t surprise anyone.
At least that’s what I would think if I was Mike.

How’s one supposed to like that…?

But I’d try it anyways, in hope Lucy will be grateful this one time.

Mike, and in 59, Paulo, is a good chunk of her emotional stability. This loss is going to leave scars…

@King: There was a therapist in an earlier chapter, already. You don’t get it. We, ,as the viewers, see a lot more than others. It probably just looks like she’s in a bad mood to most.

I recently found BSCB on the internet and spent the last 2 days reading all the chapters first off i wanna knock some damn sense into mike because hes being a selfish ***** at first i wanted him a lucy to be together but he doesnt even deserve her now but on a similar note i know that this conflicts exist to keep us reading because as long as there is hope well keep reading all the while screaming HOOK UP DAMNIT on another similar not this is all partly lucy’s fault if she had jumped on mike sooner he wouldnt have gone to sandy she has a classic psychology of if i can have it i dont want it but if i cant i must have it. i dont know if this is what you were aiming for but even so i love your comic keep up the good work : )

I dont think Mike gets how badly hes hurting her man. He may be seeming like a jerk to alot of people but in my opinion hes not being a jerk, he was being honest when he rejected her and it couldve ended up MUCH worse if hes lied to make her happy.
i just dont think he understands how much craps going around in her head
Hes already shown mistunderstanding in the vacation chapter when he gets ****** and is all like “Lucy? Love me? No” :/
Hes better than that. I like Mike…its sandy I hate >:T

She looks so miserible in the last panel :c It makes me sad looking at it

I don’t understand how the other characters don’t realize what a jerk Mike is being to Lucy. :x They can’t just think it’s because Lucy told him she loved him, right? I mean, I’d think it was more than just that. They only tried to get the two to work things out two (or maybe three?) times. They said not to let this year suck, too! Work it out, guys!

Also, I desperately hope Mike gets over his mean streak. I used to like his character a lot. Now I just think he’s a big jerk. D:

@R Why should he even care. She treated him like **** all the time. Ignorance is the most powerful weapon against the likes of Lucy.

She has taken him for granted and treated like ****. What would you do to someone who treated you like that. In the end, she brought this upon herself. Serves her right!

Reminds me of a situation I had with my friend some time ago. I tolerated his antics cause I was a nice guy, until he went overboard and shown how much of a dick he was. I told him to go **** himself. Now we both learned our lessons, I’m a misanthrope and he’s somewhat less of an *** (still an idiot though).

You’re sad dude…

Comic: Oh no indeed. It seems to me that Lucy is likely suffering from a lack of a perceptive, empathetic friend. Of course, it might help if she were more willing to let others help her…

Incentive: I cried a little at the last few panels. Also, did anyone else catch the fulfillment of Yashy’s personality choices regarding Mike and Abbey here?

@Valumoir: Yeah, Lucy took Mike for granted, but here’s the thing: she doesn’t anymore. She’s changed as a character. Doesn’t she deserve a second chance?

I dunno, different personalities, I guess. I tend to forgive people very quickly, so if I were Mike, I’d probably forgive Lucy. After all, they did have some good times together. Lucy wasn’t constantly abusive to him, and he did seem genuinely happy to be friends with her sometimes in the first few chapters (and before that).

Everybody’s hating on Mike. How was he to know that he made her happy every time he attempted to surprise her before? She probably just called him stupid, or at the very least made him feel stupid for being unable to pull it off. I’m sure she didn’t show any signs of a “thanks” when he tried. I mean, look how she responded to Daisy’s surprise. And this is MIKE we’re talking about; she treated him even worse.

tl;dr lay off of Mike; It’s Lucy’s fault

I think mike’s gonna surprise her, he’s gotten into a lot of fights and drama before and it never stopped him from eventually summing up things nicely. Look at Daisy, he got ****ING ******, but then when they got together and made an effort to put it behind them and be friends, they chilled. It’s not in Mike’s character to be angry without reason, nor is it in his character to be a jerk.

But we’ll see, Tae had mike leave someone for dead in an abandoned house to suit the storyline better so we may see lucy getting clubbed to death with a meat tenderizer for all we know ;)

Unfortunately, Mike can be justified as a jerk now. He has already said he knows she needs him. He isn’t even acknowledging her anymore. He most likely is aware just how broken up she is now. He just doesn’t care so much. Joy. The only way this could end well is if his surprise this year was going back to talking to her. That would be a big surprise to everyone, really.

Or alternately, ask him what would make everything better. If he’s a ******* about it, punch him and forget it. But REALLY MEAN IT. No take-backs. No mulligans. S’what I’d do if I were you. Then again, I’ve been tempered by stuff like this, so I kinda gotta heart of stone when it comes ta relationship stuff. ^.^;

Lucy’s still pining over rejection from Mike… but everyone has to remember Mike really is unavailable because he loves Sandy.

There IS no easy solution to this. And none that works for everyone. Most likely scenario is that Lucy will be the one getting the sad end of the stick.

We know stupid Maishul can’t be with Lucy in that way…..at least for now. But they used to be such good friends, why can’t stupid Maishul try not to ruin their friendship forever? I really like stupid Maishul, but lately he’s been very stupid.

Comment ID #142096

I kinda wonder what comic everyone else has been reading bc everyone seems to want to beat up Mike right now. I don’t understand that at all. Apparently, Mike isn’t allowed to have feelings or be upset about the abuse he’s had to endure all those years, but Lucy is allowed to crap all over him and beat him down all she wants just because saying “I care about you” is too embarrassing. I can’t see how this is anything but Lucy’s fault for waiting too long to admit anything, and now that Mike isn’t available (emotionally or otherwise), everyone wants to kill him for rejecting her and her shenanigans.

He’s tired of being used, people! Lucy isn’t the only one who’s hurting right now and it’s not fair to expect Mike to always be the one who forgives and apologizes. I, too, hope that they talk today, but not because Mike feels obligated to cheer her up.

@D. In R. Possibly, but Mike is too. Again, if Mike were a girl he would be applauded for standing up for himself and not putting up with Lucy’s abuse anymore. And many people forget he started doing this before Lucy confessed her love. He was already in the mindset of trying to distance himself from her, it has nothing to do with actively trying to hurt her for confessing her love for him.

TheKillerAngel January 16, 2011, 4:15 AM EST.

Comment ID #142136

Okay, I can understand that Mike can be upset because Lucy’s been treating him like crap over the past few years (euphemism?). At the same time, I cannot genuinely sympathize with the guy. I mean, nobody (I think) expects him to reciprocate Lucy’s feelings (shush, oh ye shippers, this post is not about romance). But saying “I don’t love you back” is one thing, and deliberately ignoring a friend on their birthday is another.

I don’t know, I really liked Mike in the beginning, but he really is a jerkface. I like Sandy, though, because she was always fair to Lucy and wanted her to hang out with them. Maybe Mike is right about Lucy needing him, but it could also be said about him that he doesn’t need her… Let me explain. They hung out until he met Sandy. Then Lucy stopped being useful to him. Then Sandy left, so he needed a replacement. (Remember when she kissed him, he did like it.) Then Mike called Sandy and clarified their situation, so his relationship with Lucy went back to just friends, because Sandy was more real than before. Or am I reading it wrong?

Wow, it was supposed to be a lot shorter. -.-

Jadeitea January 16, 2011, 5:29 AM EST.

Comment ID #142139

Mike bing just upset at Lucy for those years is an UNDERSTATEMENT. I kinda expected him to go towards the cold shoulder treatment. Hearing that debate was like salting the wound, reminding him of everything he suffered from her. Personally I think ignorance is not enough, as she deserves much more pain and suffering than that. Respect for Mike for showing restraint.

And I’m kinda hating Lucy for what she did to Mike throughout those years. I’m glad he’s treating her like that now. Revenge is a dish best served cold.

I get it, and I’m not trying to justify what Lucy did to Mike at all, but still… She isn’t the worst kind of person there is. I had an… acquaintance who was (and still probably is) a real jerk, and I totally mean it. Basically, he’s got a real low self-esteem and treats others like **** because of his ridiculously big ego (yes, ego and self-esteem are two different things and their levels can be opposite too). What I’m trying to say is, Lucy sometimes is quite harsh on Mike or others (understatement yet again), but it’s her form of defense she learned back in kindergarten (or was is primary school?). Okay, here’s the thing: Lucy hurts others, but at the same time she also hurts herself. Some people just hurt others and don’t give a ****. Lucy is driving down the Nervous Breakdown Highway, and Mike has (intentionally or not) damaged the brakes and removed the safety rails.

Oh, and revenge is hardly ever a good option. Mostly it doesn’t give you the satisfaction you expect, and you only end up hurting more people. And thus the chain reaction continues.

True, but let’s take a look form a different perspective. As readers we know exactly what Lucy’s going through. I doubt anyone in the comic realizes how deep her problems go. She was acting like a selfish bitch towards Mike, and from his point of view she would be just that.

After all she put him through, Mike has full right to completely ignore Lucy. After all, it’s the best way of dealing with such people.

And about revenge. Ohhh, it can be sweet and satisfactory indeed. If you manage to pull it off right. *evilgrin* Karma is a bitch that sometimes needs a little help.

Y’know, I just realized that people are deeply debating about whether Lucy is guilty or not (or whether or not she deserves another chance) when in fact all they’re really saying is “I don’t like Lucy” or “I like Lucy”. All other arguments are just crap they dug up to excuse they preferences.

All right, Lucy has been a bitch. Mike’s no saint either, he admitted (to Tess, I think) that he shouldn’t have ditched her while dating Sandy. Good to know he has conscience. And I kinda understand he’s been feeling awful because of Lucy’s behavior, but he’s never tried to reason with her, tell her how he felt (or does my memory fail me?), he just started being a dick, not bothering to explain or get an explanation. I know, those are kids (pardon, teenagers), “mature” is not yet the most adequate word (and I don’t mean just Mike - I mean Lucy, Paulo, Daisy, pretty much everyone, with David on top ;p).

No, Mike doesn’t have to be Lucy’s friend, but I think he owes her a decent explanation, some closure at least.

Projecting my problems onto others was never my goal but it turned out this way anyway… (aww, ****…) I wanted to show people what a person who’s kindness has been abused feels (aaalriiighht… mayyybe I spiced a few things up but still…), and for how long they can keep a grudge (alright, I dealt with an mentally unstable ******* (think Chaotic Evil) not a tsundere, so that may be a factor but still…). Cause posts putting Mike as some sort of a heartless villain somewhat aggravate me.

@Valumior I agree with Jadeitea.

And well, I quite agree that Mike’s not a heartless villain, but he’s not being honest with himself by leaving Lucy like that. He’s probably having pride/guilt issues.

And you totally proved one of my previous points with your PS2: we ain’t discussing whether Lucy deserves a chance or not, we’re discussing who likes/dislikes her the most.

Sometimes you just have to learn the hard way is all I’m saying. Getting hurt is part of the natural process of getting over something. She has plenty of opportunity to find other friends. For all we know she might not even talk to Mike after highschool. She needs to learn how to deal with these things herself. I am also certainly not saying that it is totally justified that Mike say nothing to her or shun her. I wish he would say Happy Birthday at some point…the point is you cannot put so much faith into one thing so that it ruins the hell out of your whole day and effects your mood.

Honestly, I’d like to see these roles switched to see what people’s responses are. Mike and Sandy break up for some reason, and Mike goes back to liking Lucy. Shortly after, Lucy gets a boyfriend and starts giving Mike the cold shoulder (for some other reason that would have a reasonable explanation).

Then we could really see which side we like better, ne?

If someone’s so keen on remembering this isn’t RL then they shouldn’t read novels, mangas, comics, webcomics, light novels and alikes. Neither should they watch TV, animes, cartoons, movies and alikes—and much less look at paintings and drawings. After all, none of them are RL.

@Valumior I get why mike is being that way, and I can’t say Lucy wasn’t deserving of punishment for the way she treated him, but still, if it bothered him so much why didn’t he say anything? he just put up with it for years. And he knew why she was like that, I’m pretty sure he narrated the chapter that explained it. So I think its fair to be mad at him for dropping her like a hot potato and then being a jerk to her when she was around other guys… And as for revenge, that’s just stupid. “An eye for an eye makes the whole world blind.”- Gandhi

TheKillerAngel said it all. Except maybe that it’s a given that Mike and Lucy are going to talk things through in their own way some time in the future of the story.

Okayyy people have been busy recently. About this whole argument (which is basically Valumior, Spicybleachedhair, Hoheh, and Jaedieta) from what I can tell [and I WILL be relating this to real life, because this is actually pretty accurate (great job, Taeshi! :D)] It is mostly whether Lucy is a bitch and deserves this, or Mike is a bitch and shouldn’t be doing this. I’m kind of 50/50 on that. Personally, I believe that nearly everyone should be given second chances (which is why the whole “everyone hates Tess” thing really ****** me off). I DO think Lucy deserves some of what she is getting, but not nearly to this degree. Lucy (i think???) was the one who told Mike to ask Sandy (you know, after he missed her showing up) so she’s probably already beating herself up for that. Now, Mike giving her the cold shoulder (which I STILL think is part of his surprise) is on purpose. I don’t think he knows how bad it’s hurting her, but still.

I also agree with Abbey’s policy of “Noone should have that sad/scared(?) look in their eyes” thing. Lucy was a bitch in the past, yes. Mike actually deserved it for leaving Lucy all on her own for Sandy (please rot in hell Mad Lucy). And now that Lucy is actually trying to make up for it, even standing up for the guy, Mike’s being a bigger jerk than ever to her. I don’t think this is merited at all. Lucy does NOT crave attention [whoever posted that (that’s Daisy, remember?)], she only wants Mike to pay attention her. Being mean to her (SLIGHTLY verbally abusive) is better than not talking to her at all. (The song “Pain” comes to mind… “I’d rather feel pain than nothing at all” part sorta/kinda)

I didn’t cover half the things I wanted to :\ but, oh well! Biggest. Comment. EVER. WALL OF TEXT!!!

It’s spicybleachedHEAD, but it’s okay anyways. “Hair” just kinda loses the double meaning.

…..aaaand we have someone who claims not to say “I like Lucy but hate Mike” nor “I hate Lucy but I like Mike”, but more like “I like both Lucy and Mike.” Still, it sounded a little like “I like Lucy and temporarily dislike Mike.” For some reason, people either think Lucy needs more back up or more hatred on her back. I think it’s merely a question of how people deal with tsunderes in their lives rather than anything else.

Geeze Lucy, lay off the cocaine. Withdrawal is a bitch.
Haaah, it actually is withdrawal in a sense, isn’t it? From a lack of Mike. :(

@SpicybleachedbedHEAD (sorry)

Yeah you’re right that’s pretty much all it is. Well… For me it’s more like, “I like Lucy and Mike, but Sandy should go die in a fire so Mike and Lucy can freaken be together”. I like Sandy, but she’s preventing what I want to see happen :/

WOW I really fail with people’s names…

I agree wholeheartedly. For sake of convenience: die, Sandy….but I doubt that’s gonna happen, ‘cause it’d be TOO convenient.

Oh and don’t bother yourself with such silliness over names. I probably shouldn’t have either.

A lot of Lucy’s “bitchy behavior” was more or less caused by some psychological mental development she gained in her younger years. Remember how her first years in school nobody would really play or pay attention to her. I was one of those kids and I tell you, not being able to find a social group at a young age really causes problems in the future. I myself held a rather mean and independent attitude for a long while and it’s only been since high school that I’ve straightened it out, matured and gotten better. But I still don’t hold a lot of trust in people in general. You can see Lucy starting to go through something similar, However Mike and some of her other class mates seem to recognize Why Lucy is what she is. and Another problem Lucy faces is always being someones ‘replacement’ when it comes to a relationship as we saw in “Cracks In The Ice”. That knowledge in itself to a girl can do it’s own toll.

Though even with all this going on with Lucy I don’t blame Mike for taking off and putting some separation between them. After years of insults, verbal and often physical abuse, One can only take it for so long until enough is enough and they need to take a break so the happiness can out weigh what is bad and hurtful. You can only try to help someone for so long and if they don’t take the help in a thankful way for some time, I’d pack my stuff and leave as well to find someone who appreciates the efforts more. Sadly, Mike did this just as Lucy was coming around. Another thing that did not Help Mike was the pressure his friends put on him when they found out he rejected Lucy. Suppose things could have cooled off if they were just left alone and Lucy hadn’t run off to Paulo the day after.

So in Terms of who is right and who is wrong, Each one has their on reasonable reasons in what is going on at this point. But who knows, maybe it can be fixed. Maybe they can fix it. Or maybe Sue has a plan from what I’ve seen over the newest chapters. *SHOT*

That is exactly my thoughts. This issue is not one-sided. Both Mike and Lucy got hurt and both of them, for their own reasons, have not been acting ideally.

I just don’t like all the Mike bashing, as if Lucy has never done anything wrong to him either. Anytime there is an altercation like this going on, both parties are in the wrong and could have done better to stop or solve it.

I just have hope that things will be solved in the end.

I’m pretty sure after that everyone will be cheering MikexLucy again, despite all the hate right now. :/

The entire relationship between Lucy and Mike is exactly like me and my ex best friend. If I wrote it down, you would feel like you were reading the comic again, and we are at the same point as lucy and mike, it gives me shivers reading this… god I love this comic xD

Closure’d probably just prolong the awkwardness and inhibit her ability to move on.

@ Jadeitea: We don’t even know that Lucy *can* be reasoned with. Her past behavior has been primarily irrational violence with little to no provocation that has been glossed over or ignored by her peers who interact with her or contributed to her social isolation from others beyond her social circle. And she lets her behavior be dominated by a small, foul-mouthed, ultra-violent abomination that she doesn’t even pretend to discipline despite taking responsibility for its moral development.

One wonders what’s going down in her home life that her parents have been ignoring this for years.

Learning to disengage from those who are beyond helping and who refuse help is just part of growing up, and one of the few points Mr. “Creepy Guy” from the vacation arc made that was good. Keep burning someone and they’ll stop letting you get the opportunity to do so.

@Les Miserablesmonterrsant (typed it all! :D)
I can’t say I disagree. It’s true. If someone keeps being bitchy and violent for a long time and shows no signs of change (Lucy did, but it was the time she confessed her love to Mike, so pretty bad timing, I guess), then the only reasonable way is to stop talking to them. I did that with a jerkface I’d mentioned earlier, though he was a way bigger bitch than Lucy.
Still, it’s her frikkin’ birthday. I wish happy birthdays to people I hardly know, if I remember the date. It just seems nice that way.
I also think that Mike shunning Lucy alone isn’t going to help her undergo the big change everyone is hoping for. Look at her, she’s all “woe is me, my life’s falling into pieces because Mike stopped talking to me” (not mocking, just simplifying), but she doesn’t think about why it happened… yet, at least. She needs to understand what she’s done wrong (fully), then we can talk about positive change. Because this, this is basically drowning in sadness.
I must say I’ve changed my opinion on some things since I posted my first comment (means yesterday ;p). So thank you, oh BCB fans, for being so reasonable and having well-justified views. ;)

About Lucy’s past actions, her primary response is silence or snarky comments. Chapter 12. Irrational violence, my ***. Her slapping Mike was primarily blowback from the confession and his questionable patience for anything she does now. And Lucy sinks into gloom, rather than getting mad and hitting people. Stop ignoring the details already. :/
And Lucy didn’t just start being kinder. She was talking to more people more often and spent less time being violent in general. She has already been trying to change old habits in general. That confession was NOT her first hint of liking Mike. Off to the Movies. Chapter 10. She pretty plainly was regretful of not being able to go with Mike alone. Confrontation. Chapter 12. Alejandro would probably have done as he planned to and crushed Mike’s skull. Who jumped to his defense? Exactly.
Her habits of not being social are from a life of never being able to be accepted until highschool. Paulo, who liked her when he saw her, and Mike, her first friend, were it.

I think we will all be very sad if Mike doesn’t say something. He doesn’t hate her after all, so why wouldn’t he? This would be the perfect opportunity to surprise her! she wont be expecting it. Plan it with Paulo or something.

Remember in the page earlier where Mike congratulates Daisy. You see him cupping his hands. (I didn’t notice this at first someone else did) He could have been yawning or more likely (and hopefully) he could have said happy birthday but there was no speech bubble to build tension for the readers and Lucy probably didn’t notice ‘cause of her deaf ear…

I think Mike was yawning in that panel a few pages back, guys. Stop trying to twist that into something it’s probably not. Then again, I don’t know. We’ll see. But I think he was probably yawning, because look how depressed Lucy is in this page.

I think the words bubbles in the bottom half of the page are quotes from Mike from when he would try to surprise Lucy in the past. I’m at least getting that vibe.

PLEASE, PAULO! Go comfort her already! PLEASE!!!
