And then they both fell in love with her…
Or in love with each other…

The second one is sightly more likely since that’ll leave Lucy alone again.

AWKWARD! Now things have gotten from bad to worse….hmm…its just a hunch but I think parts of the drama between Mike and Lucy would be borrowed from Cracks in the Ice (deleted chapter), I guess we will find out later on.

Hey look, Auggie

What up? Haven’t seen you for a bit. You gonna feel bad for her after watching Mike be mean? Then step in? Alright then, go on.

Mike, you know your part, bitch about Lucy and Auggie, and other things. Lucy shall cry, maybe, or look upset. Then super Auggie to the freaking rescue. How about Paulo shows up for the hell of it too, eh?

Let the show begin!

Hey that guy!

You know, looking at the last age, I think Lucy just wants to make amends with mike rather then ask for his love. I think as far as her heart being broken she’s doing pretty good. She shows she’s upset when he’s rude about something or just brushes her off and give her the cold shoulder — nobody likes being ignored after all. Aside form her being sick… either that really showed her true worry or she was just so out of it. I don’t know, I feel her emotions for Mike are getting slightly less and less. But maybe this chapter will prove wrong. :P

-looks at the book Augustus was holding in panel 2- “Blending into the background for dummies.” HA! I already mastered that easy during school.
-looks at the poster in the second to last panel- “Shhhh. No, seriously, SHUT UP!” XD

So does Augustus help out at the library or something…? What he said in the second panel just sounds like it. Augustus does look a little confused of what’s going on between them (although it should be very obvious). Not really sure why Lucy is grinning at Mike though… :x

You did draw Augustus here much better though in your new style. :) How you first drew him two chapters back was… I guess “rough” is the correct term? I’m not an artist/drawer so I don’t know the technical terms, but you’re getting better at this new style. Can’t really offer any criticism though…

Loving Lucy’s face in panel 3, very well drawn and perspective. :love:

And Mike, just let Lucy help you out this once. :/ Cut her some slack already. You two haven’t talked to each other for months (story wise anyway). Push your grudge on her to the side, at least till this assignment is finished. :( And just ignore the Augustus, he doesn’t look threating this time.

Now that I think about it, there has been alot of improvement with the new style. I’m sure a lot of the people that liked the older style better are or have already changed their minds about it :)

Also, I see that Lucy doesn’t hold grudges, unlike Mike. Although that may have something to do with her bipolar-like attitude :P

I would put a snarky comment about Lucy auggy and mike right here but I couldn’t help but see how so many people were ranting on taeshi for being just a tad late on her mon. Wed. Fri. Schedule.
First off—- you should be greatful she even continues to update regularly for you insignificant jerks, I don’t wanna sound rude but seriously? Be just a tad grateful.
Secondly—- have you ever tried drawing coloring and then perfecting a comic page? If so, then you would probably understand (I hope) if not, try it and THEN you can complain.
Third—- things like this wonderful comic can be WAITED for, so if you just “couldn’t wait any longer” try and boost your patience skills.
Okay now for the criticizers—- you guys don’t get how hurtful it can be when you read some of the stuff you post. I mean it’s good to make suggestions as to help the artist improve their skills but when you rant on while being rude about every little detail, that’s just not cool. You shouldn’t criticize any one even jokingly, I know first hand that it’s just wrong and plain bullying.

Okay I think I got most of my problems settled… Sorry if I sound nagging and stuff but—- I have just had so many People close to me attempt suicide lately for stuff like this because they feel unapreciated… Six people within the pass month… Yah 2 of them succeeded. :(

On a happier note—- great page! I love how Lucy is all snug about how Augustus is at the library too and also mikey’s expression and how it just says- ANGST- hahaha.:D

lucy is happy the rapist is there, of course… the bitch can’t get enough of it.

oh, and to those saying augustus should kick mike’s ***… didn’t mike **** up the bigger, tougher rapist in the alley in chapter 12… while he was drunk? :smirk:

people seem to keep forgetting mike is the ninja of this comic, and he only gets his *** kicked when it’s by girls for comedy relief… even when it’s not funny in the least.

well, i suppose i’ve said plenty of negative stuff for the past several pages… one thing i’d like to say other than wishing death upon paulo, is that i would really like to see the entirety of this comic become an animated, fully voice acted series.

you can’t say it doesnt have the potential to become an interesting show… if not a TV series, then atleast a flash series online.

I don’t like how everyone keeps saying naught but positive things about Augustus and negative things of Michael.

Seriously, Mike’s just being a tad petulant and petty. Perhaps Lucy called him a jerkface so many times he turned into one. There’s fault on both sides here. Imagine for a second, I mean really picture it, that Mike is the girl and Lucy the guy. Think of how they’ve been acting. Still think Mike’s being totally and utterly unreasonable, after so long being treated rudely for no reason save Lucy’s own insecurity? I know it’s the chivalrous thing to automatically dislike someone being rude to a girl, and I feel some irrational dislike for him from it as well. I’ve even voiced it a little. But this entire fan reaction is so… really?

And Gus. Honestly, even if my hunch is right I still don’t like him. Perhaps I know too many guys who seemed like that, then ended up to be exactly how their image advertises them to be.

Cause nothing you can say or do will make me shed a tear.
He’s being a stubborn jerkface and he seems to have made his choice.
So now we’ll bring in the big gun,
Lucy’s sad, beautiful singing voice.

@Tickled What you just said right there really hit me hard. “he use to be a lot nicer, not just to Lucy but to everyone else too…it’s like he’s grown all distant from them.” I can relate to that actually… but I don’t see Mike distanting himself from his other friends. He was at the table with Paulo, David, Sue, Abbey, Daisy and Tess in the last chapter. He’s only distancing himself from Lucy. Trust me, I’ve kept myself distant from majority of the student body during high school, even some of my friends (personal reasons); Mike is nowhere close doing that. I do agree though… need to see more of Sandy.

After YEARS of verbal, emotional and physical abuse, you would think Mike has *some* right to hold a grudge against Lucy.

Yes, there are DEFINITELY more rational solutions than simply trying to get away from her, but he’s not entirely in the wrong. Lucy’s also at fault here, due primarily to her continuous mistreatment of Mike. In fact, she’s contributed to this broken relationship a lot more than Mike has. Sure, she’s trying to mend it now, but things aren’t gonna turn to sugar and rainbows just like that; it’s gonna take time (although Augustus’ appearance probably isn’t helping at all).

Mike’s not a bad guy, and he’s not THE bad guy. He’s just being Mike (though I do agree that his outburst in the classroom was completely uncalled for). Personally, if I were being constantly abused for years and years, things probably would’ve gotten a lot uglier than this.

He’s still a good friend (just no longer towards Lucy) and he’s still a nice guy (just no longer towards Lucy). You can go ahead and bash me all you want for defending this “jerkface,” it’s not changing my opinion of him.

Calling it right now, Taeshi, please prove me wrong, but!

10 internet dollarinos says that Auggy will get ****** with Mike, he’ll confront him in an attempt to make him treat Lucy better, Lucy will whine, Mike will bring up the time Auggy ‘raped’ poor Daisy, Auggy will be speechless, Mike will storm out, Lucy will be sadface. Chapter will end with Lucy and Auggy talking and Auggy trying to convince her to stop being a melodramatic, emotionally damaged girl, and she’ll whine about it.

Seriously though, I’m intrigued and genuinely look forward to being proven wrong.

I have always enjoyed Augustus as a character, and I’m excited to see more of him in this comic.
He wears a t-shirt, a jacket, and a collar, which somehow makes him the only character that looks a little silly because he’s pantsless. funny how more clothes can make one look naked.

Lol. I still like Mike, he’s kind of like me in a way. Anyways, I was not expecting Augutus to be there. I dare say he is quite odd looking in this style, but you’re getting there. Everyone keeps thinking Mike should die… yet love Augutus? Lolwut? If you think about it, their situation is the same. I think the next few pages will have Auggie (everyone’s basicly gonna call him that now, of course I won’t) stalkering Mike and Lucy. AugutusXLucy has to be the weirdest thing I’ve read in these page comments, seriously. If you guys couldn’t tell, it’s PauloXLucy. As much as I would lovelovelove PauloXDaisy, it’s pretty obvious. Dontcha think guys? 6u9 Whatever you AugutusXLucy fanatics. Omg you will so be dissapoint.

Okay, I like how Augustus is put in here, but I noticed something with his left leg: It has a abnormal curve to it. At first I thought he was leaning on one foot, but no, his feet are level with eachother. Is the curve supposed to be like a knee? If so, why did you make the other leg straight as a pole? Another thing: Augustus’ trench coat. I’m not sure I prefer it over his old outfit. This current outfit is a bit too natural, minus the high colar. If you want to give him the nickname, “Final Fantasy Cat”, you need to dress him up like a final fantasy character. Otherwise people who don’t kow his nickname will just think of him as, “Evil, High Colar Goth Cat”, and you don’t want that, do you?

@ Taeshi- I read through the comments on the previous page (Wow, so much to read and a lot of drama @~@ That seemed like a horrible way to start the day but hopefully it got a lot better!) but one of them caught my attention the most. You had someone comment about how the snow looked off and how it bugged you too so I have a suggestion you might want to try, not sure if you will like it any more than your current method. Snow is mostly transparent, since it is crystallized water, thus the way to make snow look more like snow is to make it fuzzy! Make it only an absolute color or non-transparent closer to the center of the snowflake and have a nice faded fuzzy edge on the outside of the flake. I had this issue when trying to make a picture with a girl sitting in the snow with snow falling around her. I HATED making all the little dots because of the fact they just looked like dots, they didn’t really capture the feeling of snow and then I made each flake fuzzy and it gave it a more realistic feel. I hope it either gives you some ideas or helps a little, it’s just a thought from my experience trying to draw snow!

Things are about to get more complicated in the comic because of Augustus being around, even if Augustus doesn’t like Mike or Lucy to any great extent he is very big on not bullying much like Abbey does. Augustus may work for Evil Kitty but at the same time he does not play an actual role in the aftermath, only fulfills the role of reconnaissance for information to be used against them via any method he can besides violence and bullying. He also seems to be taking a liking to the group which is why he has slowly been allowing himself to be slightly more protective of the members. I get the feeling if Mike tries to blow up on Lucy Augustus might swoop in to play interference and they will all end up being thrown out of the library. Though in the end it could be something completely different! Only time and patience will tell~

I guess people forgot that even though Lucy and Mike had a love-hate friendship, both were willing to protect and even endanger themselves for the other? Like in Confrontation when Lucy fought and was almost raped in order to save Mike and her friends and when Lucy jumped in the water to save Mike and vice versa? And there was some hint about Augustus and his work for probably the same Evil Kitty that wanted to hurt Mike and rape Lucy.
Mike is being a jerk and is holding a grudge, being unnecessarily rude and petty. Lucy realized she has other friends and has become less-isolated without Mike around, now is trying to make amends. Mike is also distancing himself from his other friends, but hateful towards Lucy. He could at least be civil or indifferent rather than rude to get a simple assignment done.

I’m totally looking forward to this chapter 8-D

Dear Mike, you could make the awkward end if you just get over it. But Kixxar, you do make a good point. I guess we all kind of forgot that they had a love-hate relationship with all the mushy and intense melodrama going on. Mike’s essentially reverting back to normal, but his cruel indifference of whether he hurts Lucy or not in his comments is different from before where he would actually think before unnecessary comments flew out of his mouth.

Lucy’s face when he sees Augustus is orgasmic. And come on Mike, at least let her try to help. You’re not doing yourself any good by letting her hang out with him. Although you may be doing her good… Or her and Augustus good…

Blending into the backyard for dummies. I don’t know what screams Peeping Tom better than that. Also the colorful books are very colorful and pwetty and shiny. :3

I wish Mike would just get over it all, and get with Lucy. I mean, I liked Lucy and Paulo together, but THAT’S not happening ANY TIME SOON! XD

but yes he dose need to get over this thing, but i think it’s lucy that has to do it by either apoligizing outright, or making some real new friends, or for that matter, talking to her OTHER current friends.

once mike knows she is no longer antisocial, he’ll come atound.

Here’s how I think it will go down later in the series: Mike ultimately loses Sandy, either by finding out that she has been cheating on him (not much is known about Sandy, but one must wonder what Sue may know about her), or by her flat out dumping him. In the end, he will return to Lucy, who at least seemed faithful enough to stay with him. Luce will flat out tell him that she got over him, confront him about being Sandy’s replacement, and state that she wants (or wanted, if hooked up) to be loved for who she is, and not as a replacement. Mike will have shoved Lucy so far away that she will stay there. And either he will at least try to reconcile their friendship, or cross the point of know return.

Well considering that this is the same guy that tried to rape Daisy (someone Mike’s pretty protective of) I’m pretty sure that he borderline hates Augustus, so seeing him isn’t exactly a “sunshine and lollipops” moment.
Actually, that puts a bit of his grumpiness into perspective, because if it were me, I would see Lucy’s friendship with said character as a betrayal to all of their other friends. =O.O= Yeah, he’s not exactly going to be kind to either of them for a while at the very least… and to be honest, I don’t blame him one bit.

Aug’s an arse, and you can debate his motives all you want, but you can’t call Mike a jerk and not call Augustus one, too. In fact, Augustus is pretty much objectively a larger jerk than Mike is, from what we’ve seen in the comic.

Augustus? Reading? Library? If I’ve learned anything, it’s that Mike and Augustus will have a battle of dirty looks, angry dialogue, and Mike will realize he’s being an ***, walk out, and be chill later.
And also, Augustus is no longer punk. He’s hipster-goth.

Turtle Hermit October 18, 2011, 9:26 PM EST.

Comment ID #186179

@ZiaKitten He’s not being a jerk at all in my opinion. Lucy’s the one who suggested going to the library to do work, and yeah, at first it seemed like she was trying to make small talk and get along with Mike (who was clearly not up for talking at that point :P), but then they come in and she’s overjoyed to see Aug standing around, the guy who tried to rape Daisy, who’s essentially Mike’s little sister. I’d be ******, too. Not just in terms of principle, but also because it makes him doubt her sincerity and seriousness; ever since he found out about her rebound with Paulo after her tender confession of love to Mike, Mike’s kind of viewed Lucy as a little deceitful, if not outright manipulative. In his mind he’s probably think, “Herp, same old Lucy, kicking it up with El Rape-o.”

Not to say that Lucy IS actually being like that- she wants to get along with Mike again, who still feels kind of guilty/confused with her, and then she feels relieved to see Augustus, who see gets along with just fine, but you have to factor Mike’s bias into his reaction. Keep in mind he got ****** when he first saw her with Augustus, too, so seeing him again when Mike’s already not in the best mood isn’t going to make him feel any better.

Augustus! Interesting to see you! :3 And Mike is unhappy and I don’t blame him in the slightest. |D

Also for all of you guys who keep asking for MikexLucy, doesn’t it say in the FAQ that Mike and Lucy DON’T end up together?

Just a thought…

Anyway can’t wait for another chapter. ;D

Yaschiri October 18, 2011, 9:47 PM EST.

Comment ID #186181

I agree with what Null is saying, but am I missing something? Last I remember, Augustus kind of gave Lucy the (necessary) cold shoulder in that bus debacle. So I would THINK that Lucy would not be as relieved to see him. But, she obviously looks happy to see him, so I will relent.

Mike is kind of being overly jerky considering the circumstances, in my opinion, but if we think of the points Null brings up, then it’s understandable. Still, he is overreacting. Who knows how this will go(I foresee a blow-up and not much work getting done) :)

Comment ID #186188

True, but I also think that Mike’s entire attitude towards Lucy right now is what makes him seem like a jerk. Is he justified in doubting Lucy? Of course. Does that give him a right to be rude to her because of that? Absolutely not. For starters, most of his doubt in her feelings stem from lack of communication with her. If he would just suck it up and ask her about the Paulo incident (which they never actually resolved), or about why she’s hanging out with Augustus, he might not be so distrustful of her.

Or, you know, Lucy could get aggravated and make things worse. In which case, his suspicion of her true feelings would be completely justified. Right now though, with one of their main issues being unresolved, I think he’s overreacting to the situation. But hey, that’s just me.
