…. I get mixed signals from this … … Is the snow …angry? Or.. Falling sadly…gracefully? Forlornly? Contemplatedly? Now now Taeshi specify these things. How is the snow….. FEELING… What emotions does this snow shed, and how does Snow come into play. Furthermore this fellow, Snow is a main character yes? well just wondering.. He’s got his spotlight going on…LOL

Snow, snow! SNOW!! Just isn’t October without Christmas and winter creepin up on ya, just like it’s not September without Christmas songs ALREADY BEING SUNG. No joke, been practicing Christmas songs since three weeks ago. Oh well, Taeshi!! You’re too lazy to even draw cats (or dogs) on the comic!! Not saying it’s not all foreshawdowingy or sumthin though, kinda like it, kinda dislike the lack of comicyness, but there has to be some plot, I guess. Too bad you stopped top web comics, cuz you consistently had third.

I can’t help but feel that it’s a blizzard rolling in, not just a snowstorm from looking at the bottom of the page. I also predict Lucy/Mike drama. Perhaps if my first prediction is right, they get snowed-in and end up finally breaking their silence? Maybe Mike will freeze to death in the snow (please)? ;)

Actually floweramon, BCB does (or at least used to) keep up with real world days, for the sake of the character birthdays, but it might not anymore, I personally don’t know if it does all the way through. I read most of it in about three days so I don’t know if it actually did, seems like it at least partially does, but occasionally bending those rules to fit in huge chapters that need to be month or season appropriate. Good question to ask Taeshi

Comment ID #183859

This is by far one of the prettiest pages you’ve made Taeshi. Its somber and foreboding, but it also brings with it the promise of at least temporary join in the form of what I am assuming will be a snow day. I like the contrast between the dark blue-black of the night and school against the brighter whites of the moon and snow. Keep up the great work.

Comment ID #183861

O.o Is this page a filler? All I get out of this is a that it starts to snow and then snows pretty hard in a short span of time. But that is a snow storm after all. One panel of a character mentioning this could have gotten the same thing across with less space.

Ah, snow, is there any better way to build dramatic tension in a heartbreaking romantic relationship? It’s simple purity evokes the most powerful of emotions within us, causing us to react with more feeling and vigor than thought possible.

… Of course… It’s also a good way of killing of a character. From exposure, ice, car accidents, there is really no better way to “accidently” knock off someone. if it comes to that, I vote that we kill Mike, the cheating *******. All in favor?

Hey there Mr. 40 Page MONSTROSITY. Where the heck have you been hiding?

Awful ride? Yeah buddy! Bring on the drama! 8-)

I love the colors here. They’re very relaxing, and the snowstorm panels within the snowstorm background are a really nice artistic touch.

@Look, A Distraction
Really? We’ve only seen snow and know nothing of the plot structure and you’re already advocating for Mike’s murder? That’s jumping the gun a bit dontcha think? Usually the Mike haters wait for him to show up and THEN demand his immediate execution XD

P.S. Mike is an awesome guy! He’s just a bit of a confused and selfish teenager. Give him a chance! He may surprise us :)

Augustus’ chapter kind of was interesting, since he’s barely seen in most cases. Tess getting a notably larger fancharacter exit than most makes sense, considering she’s more important than most of the fancharacters in the story.

How relaxing. Calm before the storm, I suppose. And after this the real snow-storm is gonna be Lucy’s bitter sadness towards all and everything!

I think the snow represents the beginning of something new that grows into something bigger. Hence the start of snow that progresses into a snow storm.

I cannot tell the difference between the stars and the snow. Sweet. Maybe the stars are falling and some will eventually hit the BCB Cast.

Panels of nothing but snow snow snow. Maybe Lucy somehow got stuck at school, along with Mike, who she murders in his sleep. And then Augustus comes around and saves her from his corpse, which was then turned to a zombie with flies eating its meat.

Or maybe Sandy somehow comes and takes Mike away. And Lucy is committing suicide by jumping off the building. And Augustus is waiting on the ground to catch her when she jumps.

Why is everything about Lucy and Augustus? Oh yah… ;) Mad Lucy

This chapter is titled December. USUALLY MOST THINGS IN ROMANCE DRAMAS ALL THE BAD STUFF HAPPENS DURING THE WINTER or their birthday. It’s like, the law. The birthday thing already happened with Lucy AND DURING THAT CHAPTER SHE HAD A FLASHBACK to when Mike kissed Lucy….AND IT WAS A SNOWY DAY THAT DAY. Concidence? I think not. Therefore MikexLucy shiz is gonna go down. My guess is it’s going to be about his old blue scarf since in the flashback he had no scarf. THIS MEANS MORE MIKE IN THIS CHAPTER!! YESS!11 Bad thing is he’s probably going to be hated on by like 95% of you people throughout the whole entire chapter if this is a dramatic sad chapter about Mike and Lucy. Well if i’m right about this chapter being about Mike and Lucy and sad dramatic shiz going down.

@Deuce Moose
I think Sue recognised sandy from the modelling pictures in magazines. in “to the Top” I believe sandy had a magazine that featured her in it with clothes and what not. So that may have been what was up.

As for this page, the blue and snow is really beautiful <3 This should be a lovely chapter art wise!

@ Deuce Moose

For all we know, you could be write that there was something deeper, who really knows right? But Sue’s a rather serious character in general and so far Sandy seems to be both happy and sad which might push her to do something in the future, though maybe in the past two.

The many mysterious of this comic!

Comment ID #184011

Oh! I remember Suitcase’s BCB meme that Taeshi drew for him, and in the “spoilers” part there were a pic of Augustus looking up and snow falling down. I wonder if it’s from this chapter!

V October 3, 2011, 9:04 PM EST.

Comment ID #184012

Indeed, the future holds the answers. Of course that mystery is half the fun, discussing possibilities in the comments section and forums, trying to figure what Taeshi will do next. If only it never had to end. By the way @V that’s a good point. I remember seeing that, and if this is gonna be a long drama chapter, then we may end up having an Augustus confrontation of some kind.

Let’s see…

Drama in this chapter;
Taeshi is a webcomic artist;
Webcomic artists never let their characters have it simple;
As seen in Another Path, PauloxLucy and MikexSandy is the happiest result for them all (sort of);
Therefore, that will not happen. Some sort of in-person visit from Sandy seems inevitable. That will probably cause an ultimatum of some sort, so I predict that will happen.

Of course, there’s just as good a chance that won’t happen, if only because it’s to obvious. I’m too used to comics that play with expectations, especially due to Homestuck.

Unusual Stranger October 3, 2011, 10:24 PM EST.

Comment ID #184019

My money’s on a long wait and plenty of cliff hangers.

Ah, how Taeshi uses situational irony against us.
That’s what you get complaning I guess.

ANND I have to make this prediction:
The word December and this visualization of snow lead me to believe that this will happen: I predict that either Lucy or Mike is going to get lost in a blizzard, and be eventually rescued by the other. Then they will be reunited as friends, yadda yadda yadda, so on and so forth. I just think they’ve been friends for to long to let a fight/confession ruin it. When I fight with my friends, I forgive them. Sometimes it takes longer, but I always forgive them.

Anyway, new chapter FTW! *thumbs up* :D

Being the person I am, I have read alot of books.
As such, I have been able to predict a number of things that will happen.
I once told my friend that in iCarly Sam and Freddie would end up together.
I was right. Then after two more episodes, I said they’d break-up, mutually.
Again I was right. But you don’t need to have my insight to know that in this chapter Lucy will be sad at one point.

Won’t lie… this empty page makes me think that this chapter is going to rape my heartstrings. Winter has been a rough season for Lucy and the gang so far and I don’t see this being any different

People say I’m a downer….. Can’t argue with them since I can’t gather enough anger to get ****** off… -_- ON TO BUSINESS! I dunno what’s going to happen in this chapter. Although I’m still lingering in the past about what happened with Lucy and Mike. I guess only time will tell about what awaits us.

I wonder if Mikes girlfriend dies… or someone is seriously injured… or someone has to move away… or Mikes girlfriend cheats on him and then he has no idea what to do… or Mike gets dumped and rebounds on Lucy and they have sex and it gets too real. I have no clue but im sure this chapter will be just as interesting as the others (+ more drama)

I have a strong feeling that Taeshi’s gonna trololololol the stuffing out of us with this one. This page is to somber and suggestive of major drama to come…I trust it not.

I’ve realized how bad I have ADD by seeing this.

When I saw the title, page, and estimated pages, I was like… “Holy hell something’s going down.” When I read the author’s note I was like “****. Yeah, this is not gonna be good. Or is it? So many possibilities of destruction and creation! Mike gets snowed-in with Lucy and is forced to cooperate? Final Fantasy Cat finally scores like his subliminal not-really douche-baginess (“Finally, a challenge” sounds like something dark to ME) implies he’s going for? Tess meets FFC and HE WORKS FOR HER OLD BF?! Sandy gets Christmas off and flies in and this little town EXPLODES?!

Then I realized… “Oh, Yeah, this is why I read this comic. They’re such a dynamic group of friends yet it always seems they’re about to blow up. So damn entertaining.” Then I thought “Season finale for this soap opera is comin up, don’t be late on the uptake for a single episode.”

So, in conclusion…

Good job Taedrie. Gave me another thing to wait for. That’s great. Let’s put that on the bottom of the list. Wanna hear the list of things I’m looking forward to? “Birthday, the new Transformers dvd, Driver’s Liscense test, seeing my favorite cousin at Thanksgiving, the very last Wheel of Time book (… WILL MURDER FOR THE FIRST COPY BEEN WAITING HALF MY DAMN LIFE FOR THAT DAMN BOOK AND I’MMA BE THERE AT THE GODDAMN MIDNIGHT RELEASE IF IT’S A GODDAMN TUESDAY I CAN’T ****ING WAIT), the end of my job, the first snows, christmas, Girlfriend’s birthday, best friend’s birthday, new year, the Breaking Dawn movie whenever that comes out I forget…

then the end of this chapter.

Yes. Because I didn’t have enough to scream things at my wall posters. For example: “IF MIKE AND LUCY DON’T HAVE SEX AND RAND DIES I’M BLAMING IT ON YOU, STEPHANIE MEYER!”

I have no idea what thought-chain led to that but I’m certain there was a perfectly logical chain of thought to conclude that. Or I was getting a LITTLE ANXIOUS. Just a TINY BIT.

40 pages? This shiz’s running until like January. Here’s hoping that the drama ends up fixing some things and doesn’t just make everything even more angsty and depressing.

“December” won’t be finished until January! *ducks*

But seriously, “apologies in advance”? For what? Quality of comic? (Heavens no!) Wrecking of ships? (No longer have a boat in the race.) Death of characters? That’s pretty much all I can see that would merit that kind of statement.

How then? Suicide has been mentioned. Accidental death seems a bit too deus ex machina, so I hope it’s not that. Terminal illness? Can’t see it. Murder? It would be hard to make that plausible to me. (As it was the Alejandro confrontation was hard to swallow.) Let’s settle on suicide for now, then.

Who then? Mike and Lucy are out because they are the main characters. Can’t be Paulo (do you have to ask?) Abbey is plausible, but he doesn’t internalize his problems to that extent. Sue is too confident, unless we find out more about her. Don’t know enough about Rachel or Jess either. Or Jasmine. Or anyone else…

…except Daisy and Tess. We’ve been inside the heads of those two, and they both have some issues where suicide could become a possibility. I can see a downhill path for Daisy more easily than Tess, because she’s more likely to get herself in trouble trying to get what she wants.

My drama senses are tingling! Better watch out, Mike! The play’s in this chapter, and you gotta kiss Lucy!
Speaking of Lucy, she’s probably gonna confront Mike about how he never talks to her since she confessed her love to him.
And then Augustus will happen.

I’d personally think FFcat might be a plausible candidate for suicide. (even though i dun want him to die.) Although, I doubt Vero would kill any of her characters. Kill off, Maybe.

I just realized that I lovelovelove the old gang ( :/ ;_; 8-D 8-) Mad Lucy :unsure:)
but the newer characters aren’t doing it for me. I wish Lucy and Mike could stay together and resolve their differences. Maybe not a couple but a solid friendship. Come to think of it, I like both LucyxPaulo and LucyxMike.

I think Lucy just gets misinterpreted at times #^_^#

Winter has arrived in Bittersweet candy bowl. Now come frozen minds and withered loves. Winter is coming, and it will prove go be a hard one. Some might say that April is the cruelest month, but far more deadly is December.

So begins the most painful chapter in Bitter history. Winter has come.
