Oliver: And now you get to see Lucy.

Vero and I had such a fight over the dialogue on this page. I won in the second bubble but not in the fifth. Vero was concerned that you'd all assume they were flirting, which I bet you will anyway even with the neutered less amusing substitute dialogue. OH WELL.

Also, YAY! Auggie and Lucy time <3
And yes Auggie, you are a punk. Our punk.

No wait, your my punk. Muahahaha

Anyway, I can’t wait to get more into this chapter. It seems like Lucy isn’t gonna be ridiculously depressed and feels better, so maybe we’re seeing a turn around. Friday can’t come soon enough!

Darn it, I feel like I’m going to like him eventually. So does this mean that we won’t see any continuation of the Mike and Lucy thing, or are we to assume that the rehearsal went on as planned?

Comments weren’t posting for a while, and the site went weird as I tried to fix it. Some notes for the interested:

1. The problem was a forgotten quote character when I was banning the idiot who posted “first” on this page.
2. I didn’t think to check that banned persons file until very late, because an investigation into the errors people were getting when posting indicated something to do with APC running out of memory.
3. I still don’t know why I had all the APC errors.

Apologies for the interruption of service. :S

Ive got a mouthful, so here it goes:

Lucy is heartbroken cuz mike,cuzof sandy.
Augustus is heartbroken cuz abbey stole daisy from him, that and he wanted to save her from his brother.
Augustus brother is the guy who jumped the gang in j.h. in that deserted town they accidentally went to.
Mike was shunning lucy as a result of the fight thry had but started to get over it each day of rehearsal, until he caught her talking to Augustus.
Paulo cant choose between lucy and jasmine.
Augustus wants revengeon “green eyes”(mike) and tbe gang for lucy and mike kicking his @&&.

Did i miss anything?tell me if i did,please!!!!

Comment ID #180881

Sigh—- and now here come the tears,,, I don’t know why but the fact that Lucy hasn’t stopped crying for the past ahem many chapters, is beginning to become very irritating… She used to be this tough as nails type girl who reminded me of myself besides the being a jerk part… But now… She seems more and more…. Pathetic… I don’t know if I’m the only one or not and I know that this is all a work in progress but I really hope that sooner or later Lucy either toughens up or quickly gets over the thoughts of suicide because then the comic would go from dramatic to depressing…. Either way she’ll probably get an Anurism or something from the stress and depression… I am only waiting for mike to come to his senses and get over his six year old crush Thingy—- :/ long comment is long.

Ps. The new style is kind of cloudy compared to your old bright colored solid stuff so we will see if everyone gets used to it within a couple weeks or so and after that you’ll have a bit more practice with it and how to change your coloring methods so yah lots of work this must be!

i feel that teh older style of drawing was much better, it was more crisp, detailed, and didn’t seen as rough to me.

in addition, WHAT IS AUGUSTUS DOING? i thought he had a friendly rivalry with lucy, and why dosen’t lucy just go to her other friends, you know, other then mike.

I hope they become super close friends.

Lucy needs someone who will tell her she is messed up and needs serious help that ISN’T Mike. We all saw how that worked out… She also needs a male buddy that don’t want in her pants or in love with her in some way. I sincerely hope they don’t fall in love though, I just can’t see that working in any shape or form O_o

Im just saying, going to a creep you hate and saying ” I haz noh placeh to gowah” its overdramitic.

I personally like the new style. So far the characters appear older and more sophisticated, and less “chibi”. Both styles look good for different reasons, but I’m really liking the switch up in design! Can’t wait to see the rest of the cast in this new style. :D

not really sure what’s so “hot” about mutilating your flesh with random bits of metal, either…

oh well, can’t expect much out of people with no experience in the world. :/

lemme sleep plz, how is it people like you call mike’s love for sandy a pointless little “crush thingy”, yet don’t say the same about lucy’s love for mike?

mike and sandy stayed in love despite all the years apart, the relationship is just as strong as it was when they were right next to each other, that is not a mere “crush”.

i am curious… what’s in that bag in augustus’ locker?

I’m liking this art style more and more. I pretty much ignored the writing the second time I had a look at this so I could focus on the art. Hm…
Lucy’s bow looks a bit strange at times, but I think that’s going to be some sort of eternal problem.
other than that, I really like it. I feel like it does a much better job of accurately showing facial expressions.

Comment ID #180944

Possibly Lucey may seek his company because he is a guy friend that won’t try and hit on her and she can just be normal around for a while, you know? Like how Mike used to be without the flirting. Because Paulo always flirts and David isn’t the sharpest tool in the shed. And Mikes on a hate run right now.

She may seek a guy;s company because, while she is a girl, she likes to do guy things or be more ‘tough’ and not all ‘lady like’ like how Daisy is. Plus Daisy has Abbey and being a third wheel sucks. And how others have various plans, she may just want the company.

And for a quick Edit, ‘cause I saw it but forgot to say anything, How cute is it that he has got a picture d Daisy in there? D’awwwww <3

Deleted my comment? It was relevant to the page, questioning why Augustus seems mean to Lucy, but not the sources of rage he’s surrounded by, and such. Or, perhaps the comment never got added in the first place. Happens. Either way, this style hardly detracts from Lucy’s cuteness. Epic cuteness! YES! :love:

Augustus, Abbey, Daisy, and Tess should have a chat. Maybe bury the hatchet and discuss the olive branch. Rekindle an old friendship and possibly start new ones. Tess is leaving soon. She should try to derail a few grudges so she leaves things better than when she came.

I must say this is a very interesting art style, i enjoy the typical more cartoony look, but this one adds a different kind of depth to the environment. It almost makes it seem more grown up.

I have to say, the new style is very nice. To me, it seems like more people like the old for little reason more than it’s been around a while. Not that there’s anything wrong with it. People are entitled to their opinions, I’m just trying to understand it, is all. Taeshi, I love this comic, no matter the style. =D

I like how SuitCase very explicitly said that they’re not flirting, yet there are still a handful of people going “OMG LUCYxAUGUSTUS YES THANK YOU FOR THIS PAIRING TAESHI”


I like the new style, by the way. Main difference (that I see) is that most objects no longer have black outlines, which gives it a really smooth and clean look.

Being the nostalgic *** that I am, I think my favorite is still the detailed black & white (from like the mid-30’s to 46, after which it switched to digital shading from 46 to 61, which is when we hit color)

Ok now I’m getting used to Augustus in this style, now to get used to Lucy. Panel 4 she seems to have finally grown a bit I guess, she isn’t a complete midgee now.

i like Lucy and Augustus, not really in a romantic way though well maybe just a little, it just feels like Augustus might help Lucy become independant in his own way, it maybe harsh or twisted, well depending on him i guess! XD kind of like how he somewhat helped Daisy. ^_^

for example right now, Lucy might of been wanting someone to cling to, and he told her to leave!!!

Thanatos, you assuming clod. I have had plenty of experience in this world with heartbreakers already. I promise you I’ve already had my run-ins with the terrible. By flaunting your “worldliness” to me you actually reveal yourself as a child. Piercings, by the way, are a preference, something you clearly cannot comprehend.

Also if you’d been paying attention you’d have realized by now Augustus is not truly a bad guy. He never tried to rape Daisy, that was an exaggeration by everyone. He obviously cares very much about her. He’s just a dominant personality and thought he was helping her, albeit in his easily misunderstood own way. Not to mention he wouldn’t even give Lucy the time of day if he was truly that awful.

Don’t listen to me, though. You’ll see in time. He’s intended to be a good guy.

Okay, all implications that this chapter was going to suck because of the new art are suddenly thrown out the window. I am now very intrigued.

I had almost forgotten that the two sometimes hang out with each other. In Panel 2, funny how Lucy comments on how empty and bland Augustus’ locker is, yet he has a picture of Daisy in it.

I don’t blame Augustus for telling her off. Like she needs another shoulder to cry on. And she pretty rudely admitted to him that she’s only hanging out with him because there’s nobody else to hang out with. Even if you didn’t like that person, if they told you they were only hanging out with you just for the hell of it and not because you’re an interesting enough person, I can guarantee you wouldn’t feel like putting up with it. And that raises a good point; is Lucy not getting any sort of comfort out of her ****ing pets, siblings, and parents? I remember at the start of the comic she was very close to her pets especially. What the hell happened?

Hm. For some reason Lucy is becoming incredibly needy very rapidly. She’s always depended on Michael, but she grew up with him and cared for him, so that makes sense. She never depended on others if Michael was unavailable, aside from pets. She seemed tougher and smarter in past chapters, and a lot less pathetic. I guess she’s just having one of those off months or something. Hopefully this doesn’t become a trend for her character, because she’s proven herself to be much less annoying when faced with loneliness in the past.

Of course we will assume they are flirting; if Lucy snuck up behind Augustus with a knife and murdered him we’d consider that flirting.

Also, I was expecting it to take until page three or maybe even four for the new art style to grow on me so much. Shows you what I know.

High five, Augustus. :U

I love everyone, but someone had to introduce the idea of ‘HEY LUCY YOU HAVE A FAMILY TO VENT TO’ to her. It’s not like she doesn’t have siblings. They can be really understanding and have good advice—there’s experience if it’s an older sibling, and the situation might be simpler than you’d thought if you give a dumbed down version to a younger sibling.

plus there are parents, but at this age who gets along with THEM?

so I just started reading this and I have to say 2 things:

-I’m addicted to this comic. I’m in love with every character here.

-I hate you so much(there’s not other word to describe it). let me elaborate on this one: I hate that you made me addicted to something that just plays with my emotions so bad. I literally hate how much you made me love the characters because of how I don’t want them to suffer, and yet you make them suffer so much. I hate you so much for making this amazing thing. so basically you are doing an amazing job but I hate this feeling you gave me by reading this comic. also you made me remember those days where I was a couple shipper on manga, when I thought I was all over pairings. I curse you to eternity for making me want a pairing so bad even though I know it’s not on my saying if it comes true or not.

(not really hate, but more of a “damnit why can’t it be my way? Q_Q” thing…ignore me, I’m going to stay in my corner of suffering of not having the power to make a fictional character have their happy ending like I want them to)

The new style. I rather don’t like it.

I remember a joke piece that taeshi did about making the style of BCB more “realistic”, and it was awful and that was the point. I’m sorry to say that the new style marginally reminds me of that one.

I’d also like to point out that the artwork is what got me interested in this comic in the first place (and in any comic for that matter). I’d be sad to see that lovely art changed for the worse.

i know what you mean it’s a cool and great thing to see a comic change so much over the drawing of it i love how as they got older and more Drama-ish the art got better it helped to express that the change from a kid to a teen the care free style in the first few pages is very kid like then the art got better as the character and story got much more serious and Drama-ish it just really worked

and wall i love the old style allot i just need to give the new one some time it will grow on me :D

That last panel.. with Lucy’s face.. it breaks my heart. I’m liking the new style so far, though. It may take some getting used to, but it’s really nice. The eyes look more natural and the colors seem to run smoother. I can’t wait to see more.

Oh, and I forgot to say how much I love the new style! It’s really great, and something about the old one made it seem more rubbery than this. Not quite sure how, though. :unsure: This one seems more finished to me, though I’ve read that other people feel almost exactly the opposing. This is my favorite style, now. 8-)

I love Augustus~ I dunno why, I just do. I’m normally not a huge furry fan, but I’m addicted to this :D

Augustus! D: Why so mean? Poor Lucy! Tough… Lucy really make’s me wonder if she would really look for a replacement or if she actually is just looking for someone to accompany her. After all if my Best Friend “suddenly” hated me I’d look for company else where, doesn’t really mean I would forget my BF just that I need to get over it and for that I would need a distraction so, some how I don’t blame her! Even if it was her fault for been selfish, she still has feelings!
PD: I don’t used to comment much so I’m not sure if what I comment is kind of wrong because I keep getting on the dumb comment filter :(… Maybe I’m just been boring :(

Thats what i love about Augustus he tells it how it is.
lucy needs to learn that being a complete jerk is not the way to go around making friends i mean didn’t she learn her lesson with mike?

I like Augustus in the new look but not Lucy. I like the fact that she looked both cute and convincingly “sexy” for the BCB universe. I wonder if the others look better or worse. Hope I find out soon enough, and find out if there’s going to be a completely happy ending for anyone (besides the “ignorant” ones).

But, being me, I hope there’s still some kind of suffering towards the end of this, if there’s ever going to be an end in my lifetime. Which I hope not.
Does this make sense?

I’m kinda confused by this drawing style. It’s so… different, but still the same? :/

Rapecat just told you what’s up, Lucy. Go home and cry.

I’m not against them hooking up, but that’s not on me anyway. Either Augustus is letting Lucy know how pathetic she’s being, or he’s just being indifferent to her, both of which are good things. She needs an objective anchor. Everyone does, sometimes.

eeeeehhh….. idk the new style isnt really bcb-esque… looks a little too… good? complex? i like the simplicity of the old ones… just my opinion.

I like the new style. It looks much softer and more realistic in a way.

Although I did like it when you could only see part of Agustus’s other eye…

What do you mean, Lucy? You have plenty of people to turn to! Just because some of your friends are dating doesn’t mean that you can’t go to them…

I like the current style of cartoonist makes it much justice to the expressive eyes of Lucy when not angry.

The story seems promising, the guy who almost rapes Daisy hanging with Lucy, I think his intentions are good but the guys intervene, especially Mike who may begin to be jealous of how well you take these two, It smell like (male) catfight to me XD

the new style works on Lucy.
however something’s bugging me about FFCat in this style.

it could be his see-through hair.

the new style looks good but personally i like the older style better.
it seems…i dont know……off.
its not bad but something about it seems un-BCB, the old style fit perfectly with the comic.

Whoa. That exchange had some bite to it. Lucy openly admitting she had nowhere else to go? I wasn’t expecting that.

I think Lucy’s closest female friend is Sue, right? Sue is awesome, ergo they should talk more.

Yeah, that was a quick hit, but I myself think that Lucy is trying to do too much! Personally, I advise that she pull back and get herself together. Maybe, I don’t know, WORK ON SELF-ESTEEM.

Maybe. I believe in ya, Luce! ;)

You could at least be nice FFC. And Lucy, don’t go there. I see what you’re doing. He’ll rape you. And that’s a fact.

Awww he’s got a soft spot for Daisy. That’s cute. :)

I love how, if you read between the lines, Augustus is constantly saying “I suck and you shouldn’t get near me plzkthx”. Reminds me of someone I am.

No, FFC, not all guys with piercings are punk.

Some of them are cock starved pretty boys!

What I find really cute is that Augustus is all punk and stuff but he’s actually really short and kawaii
