HAHA I love this. God Mike is amazing no mater what anyone says. I hope he doesn’t mess this up, even if I’m not really shipping MikexLucy hardcore anymore I still think the friendship they had before all the confessions was one of the best parts of the story. Thanks for another great one Taeshi.
P.S. i feel sorry for Paulo, He looks so cute with tears in his eyes. Guess it’ll make Thanatos happy though.

Yeah, that’s complete ********. Let’s all welcome the argueing, fighting, tears, walking out from one of them, or both, and stuff like that… :/

Even though he decided to stay with Jazzy.
Oh wait, he’s a complicated ******* who some of us love anyway and doesn’t want to deal with her either.

Maybe Lucy should just get over it herself, go back to being the tough chick she was only this time, actually be nice to her FRIENDS at least and is a little less moody.

FINE ILL DO THE DAMN PAPER WITH LUCY!!!….is what hes going to say
(.-.) watch me be ninja and be right…or he has officially gone completely crazy and the elf in his ear keeps telling him to kill them all- much less likely but still possible i know a guy that would listen the first time hes told to do it.

What is paulo playing with in the first panel? And tae i like how the color of mikes panels change with who all is getting paired up and when paulo isnt paired it goes back to blue XD

Calm down! I bet Noodles was going to say “Mike and Sue”, or “Mike and Amaya”, NOT “Mike and Lucy”. All three of those girls haven’t been called yet, and hell, maybe someone else will be called on to be paired with you.

So yeah, Mike is still acting like a ****ing *******…What else is new? Well, Abbey’s angst, for one thing…

Man…Paulo got called on. I wish he and Lucy would work on the project together… The ending of ‘Carry Me’ left a lot to be desired in regards to just how close they are and could be. :(

I like how everyone is groaning while Abbey looks annoyed (again) and Daisy looks sad… no Daisy the kitty eyes will not work anymore.

You could get Sue, Mike… for your’s and Lucy’s sake anyway.

I’m a little lost on the panels of Mike, while “Noodles” is calling out the pairings… can someone explain those transactions for me please? :x :question: I know it’s in relation of getting paired with Lucy but… still lost between each panel.

Perhaps it will be Sue and Lucy and Mike will be paired with himself, which is why he is exclaiming “FINE!” in his acceptance of the fact that he will have no partner and will have to do all the work himself

world war II sucked… all american wars sucked, they were all so boring, and had no memorable people in them.

where the hell did lucy come from? wasn’t she supposed to be flirting with a rapist or something? :/

i’m genuinely surprised that daisy is upset that she has to do an essay, didn’t she used to love doing schoolwork, and hate when school ended?

i like daisy’s expression in the final panel, though… looks kind of cute.

i love all those mike panels with the different colored backgrounds in them, i assume they’re showing how crazy his emotions are being throughout the pairing… and finally it finishes off with what looks like a tidal wave about to engulf the entire class. :smirk:

Is this it? is this finally the moment where Lucy and Mike finally make up? Is this the comic where Mike and Lucy finally realize they were meant for each other? Or is this the comic where Mike breaks Lucy’s heart into a fine mist…
Who knows. Maybe they’ll go back to playing video games with each other like they used to, and all will be well. Also maybe they’ll live up to being the joint protagonists in this story instead of Mike being the antagonist.

P.S. Long comment, sorry.

I doubt the first two will be happening, Zilla.

The beginning of this chapter, Taeshi let us all know that this was not only gonna be a considerably long chapter but that it was gonna be chalk full of drama and angst galore.

3rd option is probably your best bet. But then again, it could be something completely different altogether. Just imagine the possibilities.

Hahahaha, Mike’s growing apprehension and final outburst was just hilarious. Like many others have probably pointed out he will probably be paired with someone else and the teacher will probably say something to the effect of, “I’m sorry if you wanted to work with Lucy, Mike, but that’s just how it is.” XD

Then again, if he is partnered with Lucy, it will make for some interesting character development, hopefully to a point that they can at least form some sort of truce.

Mike is so immature. I mean really now, you were fine with using Lucy as a substitute Sandy, but the moment she comes back you kick poor Lucy to the curb and blame her for liking you. Get over yourself Mike. Especially when it’s a school assignment, I doubt it’d be that bad. Freaking out like that for no reason whatsoever. All Lucy really wants as far as I can see is for him to stop ignoring her.

If he were my friend (Well if he were my friend, he wouldn’t be anymore. Couldn’t hang out with such a creep.) I would want him to at least talk to me and be civil. Dude can’t even man up and have regular conversations with her. Not to mention he gets ****** off royal any time she’s around. It’s not like they go to the same school or anything. Oh no. >.>

My GOD Micheal, you just can’t stop thinking about her. I swear your such a drama queen. All you ever do is whine about Lucy. “Oh she’s finding substitutes, oh what a *****! Oh god I’m going to have to work with her! How dare she talk to me! How needy is she to talk to others!” Quit yer bitchin’ and man the hell up! I hope Lucy gets hit by a car while avoiding you just so you feel bad. You’re a ****** fictional person (Though written greatly if you can make me this mad) and you should feel ******.

I understand the initial break up. I even understand Mike’s wanting to distance himself from Lucy. But here’s where it gets me. Lucy became his Sandy after Sandy moved away. He pretty much used her and now he won’t stop reminding her that she was just a substitute and isn’t needed now that he’s got the real deal. If you want to distance yourself from someone, that doesn’t mean avoid the ever living hell out of them. That means maturing up and treating them indifferently. Not a friend. Not an enemy.

Damn it! Stop getting me all ticked off with your cats, Taeshi.D=

I can understand Mike’s reasons for hating Lucy and avoiding her, I truly can. But now hes just being a whinny bitch and a drama queen; seriously, way to make a scene that no one asked for. :/

I’m guessing that this chapter will be full of Mike on Lucy Angst, assuming Mike is believing he’s going to be paired with Lucy, and since he’s already emotionally unstable because of her, he’s having a breakdown.

Wouldn’t it just be soooo embarrassing for him to find out Lucy won’t be his partner. :P I bet that’s gonna happen so he’ll stand out and everyone will think weird of him.

But still, I’m sure there’s going to be a lot of Mike and Lucy drama to unfold, since you forewarned it. D: Oh and I don’t know what all the fuss is about, id LOVE to write an essay about World War 2. :D

Hum, apparently he’s really not interested in talking to Lucy.

Besides, Mr. Mike, the teacher didn’t say you’re paired with Lucy yet.
Imagine how awkward it would be if you made a scene because of that, and the teacher did not pair you with her?

Mike should stop being so mean! So Lucy confessed her love, he keeps his distance and now he’s being mean for absolutely no reason. So it’s awkward, he never hated her before! Suddenly, he has to hate her for who she is!? HE USED TO UNDERSTAND! What reason does he have to suddenly feel she deserves the abuse he gave her, when he was fine with it before and when he knows what it’s doing to her…
GET LILY IN HERE, she needs to beat some sense into him!

Also, it’s gonna be real hilarious if Mike and Lucy have to write an essay on Hitler and Eva Braum. Romance is clearly the last thing Mike wants to be forced to think about in Lucy’s presence.

Even better - if Mike gets paired with Augustus, there’s gonna be some real crazy **** hitting the fan. Not like it’s gonna happen, but could you imagine the results of those two working together? Augustus would sure have a lot of notes to write down!

@Dracke: Lucy never tried to force her feelings into Mike. Never. She even hide them and when she confessed and was rejected, she said “Ok”. Her only attempt to “convince him” was when she said “so someone hundreds of miles away means more to you than I can?” And he just said “Yes” and she responded “Okay. Goodnight.”

Technically, if all the students in the classroom rebelled, and over powered the teacher, they could just tie him up and lock him in a closet, and that would be the end of any kind ‘essay’ >:D I don’t think they are diabolical/crazy enough to do that, though. And that wouldn’t really make sense, now, would it?

I’m sorry, I know Lucy can be clingy, but she did care about Mike, and he’s just being a B**** end of story. that’s just way over the top… she hasn’t even been bugging the stupid jack***. and honestly I don’t think she gives that much of a s*** about him anymore boyfriend-wise. he’s kindof giving me a self-centered arrogant vibe these days x.x; -shot-
he’s really just p****** me off :x EVERY GIRL does NOT want him. and I’m really hating him >^> I’ve lost all support and respect.. not because he’s dating Sandy instead of Lucy, but because of the way he’s now treating Lucy. he could still have some consideration and decency towards her; and HELL. he’s the jerk that pretended to be her friend for years and led her on. I mean seriously, OUCH. if I found out my bestfriend wasn’t really my bestfriend afterall, and had only been pretending to be because they felt bad for me…. well shizz, I’d be pretty upset too… ;-;” and I think honestly we all would. he’s just being cruel…. I know Lucy has her faults, but no-one deserves that…. and she hasn’t been all “MIKE I LOVE YOU COME BACKK” in a while. she was happy that he talked to her, but she didn’t react in a gaga-in-love way, she acted more like she was just glad to hear from a friend she’d thought she’d lost. and there’s nothing wrong with that…

( and before someone pulls the dumbcard, I know it’s just a comic, chill. >^< )

I’m with anon. Mike really is being a bit of an *** here. He keeps acting like Lucy was using him, but in truth, he was using her. She just wanted him for companionship, and really cared for him. Whenever he tried to come on to her, she refused him, but not to be a tease or anything. She knew he still loved Sandy. He wasn’t a substitute for anything in her mind, but he used her as a substitute for Sandy in every respect. She knew it too, but put up with it because he was her only real bond. Or so she thought. God, he’s being so cruel…

Oh man, it sounds like Mike is “FINE”ing about being paired with Lucy…I’m with BlueSaved on this one. Give her a BREAK Mike, you guys are only in high school. You can’t really get mad at someone because of the way they do or don’t feel. Leave her alone, so that she can *hopefully* move on and become an even better character. You too, I don’t like you as an a-hole. :smirk:

@bluesaved Wow no one’s ever put it so well before! I agree with you 100% …I just feel so bad for Lucy. I used to like Mike, but now it’s just really awkward to still seem him in the comic, it makes me feel bad you know? Like if I was in Lucy’s shoes I’d never want to see him again. Have my girls back me haha, but to see him around all the time and everyone be so chummy with him. It must feel so ******.

Sleepyface October 7, 2011, 11:36 PM EST.

Comment ID #184540

First of all, I’m sure Mike had a reason, besides the possibility of being paired with Lucy, for that outburst. There are still other students who haven’t been paired. Mike has been an *** lately, but not that much of an ***.

Speaking of which, when the story began he was compassionate and friendly and helpful, he was a character that everyone could relate to and look up to, but the further the story goes, the more one-dimensional and dickish he becomes. You can’t rationalize it all away by saying that he was replacing Sandy with Lucy. That may be true, but it doesn’t explain the complete shift in overall attitude towards all the other characters.

There’s always a bit of a bad taste left over when the most admirable character becomes a mere object of hatred and frustration for no good reason.

Sorry for the whole rant, just had to get that out of my head. :nope:

Folfy: What’s funny is that Woodnesword’s comment is positive about it, like he was moved enough by the comic rather than annoyed.

If you’re expecting this to be a humour comic, then you’re reading the wrong comic. BCB has always, and will always, be a drama comic with some humour mixed inbetween. Sorry, but the drama is not going anywhere.

Flower Power: I don’t see the confusion. It’s December and it’s going to be Winter Vacation.. meaning the next time the school comes back, it’ll be the next year. Sounds pretty accurate to me. They will still be sophomores, you never went to an American school before? :P

so painful and slow to the point where he is just BEGGING for someone to blow his head off to put an end to it, and everytime he begs for an end, another year is added to his torture.

that would be so… amazingly satisfying! :D

Luigifan October 9, 2011, 10:50 PM EST.

Comment ID #184652

I don’t think he’s over reacting he’s probably been pairred up with her so many times prior to this and now that they have these issues going on being pairred up with Lucy again is a million times more annoying. And not saying that Lucy is bad or anything but with her personality I feel that Mike would end up doing most of the joke while Lucy would complain about how dumb the essay is. Although WITH their issues maybe Lucy will do the best darn work ever to maybe impress Mike or something to get him to look at her differently…or not. Maybe things will just get a million times more awkward and shizz will go down. People give Mike to much gripe. I feel he’s really human. I bet money that if you put up with someone and cared for someone for more than 90% of your life to have them just pick on you and put you down that you’d be all “mature” about everything and be nice, and even if he DID stay nice to Lucy after this you all would STILL hate him and continue to say something no matter what he did simply for the fact he wants to be with Sandy (even if it’s long distance) over Lucy. I think the way he kind of turned into a jerk only towards Lucy and still friendly towards everyone that he’d normally be friendly nice too is a very neat element to say that he didn’t really “change” it’s just that he has a gripe against Lucy and fed up with her. I feel that most of the story concentrates on Lucy and her feelings there really hasn’t been a chapter where it focused solely on Mike and his feelings, I do remember some but I recall those chapters to be about Mike’s feelings towards Sandy or those really old comics where he adored Lucy. I believe the reason for everyone’s hatred for Mike is because of how alot of the recent chapters focused alot on Lucy and her being all sad, depressed and desperate. And even when it was in someone esle’s point of view (such as the recent chapters with Paulo) it was still mainly focused on Lucy, because of that more people dislike Mike for causing her to be like that. I’m interested in with this chapter if it’s going to be in Mike’s point of view since we haven’t had many chapters where it’s mainly his point of view (still focused on Lucy though). And why am I ranting here…. -runs away-

What’s Mike’s problem? If she’s not a big part of his life anymore, why make a fuss?

All in all, he’s lying to himself about something and that’s tearing him up. Or so I wager.

When they’re at their desks in school? (This page & previous) That’s when it’s most apparent that they’re “teens”. It’s tough to judge the ages of talking upright cats otherwise, eh?

HAHAHAHAHA!!! Abbey’s reaction to the essay! And chill out Mike. IT COULD BE SOMEONE NOT LUCY. It’s not like everyone in the school, mainly the teachers, principal, janitors, etc, cares about you and Lucy’s screwed up relationship. Yup yup yup. It could be someone else.
