That’s not Lucy in the last 4 panels. It’s her brother (at least I think so).
Can’t help but feel sick to my stomach from the first couple panels. The black and white helps show the depressed mood so well, especially with the color of Paulo’s fur and the door frame.
A shame he was stopped, but at this point it might possibly do more harm than good to try and talk to Lucy.

Oooo….Lucy’s brother, Jordan looks angry. (I’m assuming it’s him because Sam wears glasses?)

Man, Lucy looks definitely depress. The darkness in the room and just her being still as stone made me shiver a bit. I’m not sure whether her family knows anything or is wondering why she like this, but overall it’s nice seeing that her brothers are protective for her.

I’m hoping Jordan starts asking questions about Lucy’s behavior to Paulo instead of kicking him out. At least pieces will slowly start coming together.

Oh boy, he prob’ wasn’t suppose to see Lucy, but now that he has…….

I wonder if Lucy’s family knows what happened? If not, then I don’t think Lucy’s brothers are going to treat Paulo very nicely. I sense a hostile interrogation! Is this where Paulo confirms that Mike has something to do with Lucy’s depression? Things are not going to look too good for Mike very soon…… (in like a chapter or three kind of soon)….there’s a chance that he will loose Paulo more than Daisy, I think she’ll just be stuck in the middle :C.

Poor Lucy….. Not feeling too sympathetic for Mike here, but I do understand why he felt like he needed to cut her off like that. I just hope he doesn’t regret his choice later.

Hey Buuuuuuuuuuuuuudy!

That’s how I see Paulo’s statement, even though it’s clearly pronounced otherwise.

In other news, this situation could be -SIGNIFICANTLY- worse. Lucy could be cutting. Paulo could be guilty of something, rather than trying to cheer her up (and even bringing Cake). The brother could be armed. All in all, that Paulo still has his ‘nads even now, when 2 of those cats could have torn them off and had ample opportunity to do so, is a good sign for the future in my book.

It’s not quite as suspenceful as Taeshi likes to troll us with on the weekends. I’m greatful for that. Mainly waiting to see how Paulo talks his way back into that room to deal with Murky and Lurky who are obviously hiding inside.

I think I appreciate the higher level of detail that seems to be made easier to do with some of the different styles of artwork. But this one’s growing on me.

Goodness, Lucy is in poor shape… She must’ve locked herself in her room thinking she was doing everyone a favor, thanks to Mike.

Now I don’t intend to keep dragging that topic along, so I’m only going to say this once. There’s a difference between telling someone off and ripping them to pieces because you took too long to calmly confront them early on, and there’s definitely a difference between telling someone to stay away from you and telling them that no one will ever care about them.

On another note, it’s nice to see a little more of Lucy’s family. Haha, Jordan and his brotherly-ness is simply adorable. x3

“…But you didnt have to cut me off,
make out like it never happened
and that we were nothing.
I don’t even need your love,
but you treat me like a stranger,
and that feels so rough.
No you didnt have to stop so low,
have your friends collect your records
then changed your number.
Guess I dont need that though,
now you’re just somebody that I used to know…”

Be tough, Lucy. It’s time to stop turning towards others for hope and reason, only to be fed despair and confusion. Time to stand on your own feet, shoulder that weight, and move on down that lonely, cold, and broken path looking for the fleeting rays of light that seem to elude you in this fog-filled realm of gray.
We all want the same thing at heart: to be happy. Unfortunately, this objective can be a lot more stressful to obtain for some, especially when it is constantly dangled in front of them, only to be taken or pulled away from them at the last moment.
Keep looking and fighting, Lucy. As the Russians say, “Hope is the last to die.”

Comment ID #215713

Why is Jordan… glaring at Paulo like that? What did he do? :x

Gray scale effect… very suiting. Gives a reader an idea of what a character is feeling.

Poor Lucy… she feels abandoned, cast away, unwanted, alone. Broken… and lost. I know how she feels. No longer has anyone special in their life, no one to turn to. ._.

She’s in deep depression right now… a slim chance she’ll come out of it without attempts of suicide. Maybe Paulo can do something to fix it, that is if the brothers will let him.

This blue cat cries for Lucy. If only I could give her a big hug. I’ll let her talk all she wants too. I’ll listen to whatever she has to say just to help her get it off her mind.

I find that talking about these things to one person, that means the most to me, helps clear my mind and get me out of depression, even if it is temporary; better than nothing.

Maybe Lucy might do that with Paulo, if the brothers and her will allow him. She’ll talk, and cry, weep, etc., and he’ll just listen and comfort her. Soon as that is out of the way, they might do something else to distract those depressing thoughts in Lucy’s head. Help her forget all about it and move on.

Just hope this chapter ends happy though… two sad chapters in a row, time for a happy one now.

Remember that Paulo had a very bad crush on Lucy for a very long time. Jordan has probably heard of this and kept him away from her. But either way, Sam AND Jordan are both very protective over their little sister. Sam, Mum and Dad are probably at work and Jordan, Lucy and the other 3 are probably the only ones home. I hope Paulo can get Lucy out of the this drat mood! Poor white cat has been hit hard with all of this! If there is one thing Paulo is good for, it’s cheering people up by being such an *** to others. The way society works nowadays.

I like how Lucys bro is trying to look out for her and be protective…however, I really wish they would just let Paulo see her. I feel it would do a world of good for Lucy. Part of her depression isn’t just because of Mike hating her but the thought that people like Paulo would also leave her. If Paulo comes and shows her that he would never leave her side then it would make her feel so much better ;-;

And it’s Lucy’s brother to the rescue!!
Does Lucy only have brothers? I can’t recall… ‘cause if that’s the case I can totally understand why she’s such a physical person. One of my best friends is the only girl out of 5 kids, and she’s always smacking our guy friends around.

But anyways, I guess Lucy’s whole family must know something’s up now. I just wonder if she told them it was because of Mike or if she’s just been quiet about it. But if she did tell them it was Mike, or they somehow figure it out since her change came right after she went to do the project at his place, it would be rather awesome if her brothers ran into him at some point. But that’s just my bit of imagination. ^^

And aww poor Paulo. your plan has been foiled.

There is a lot going on here but I’ll just lay it down. I expected Lucy in a depression, but this page exceeded my expectations five fold over. It is quite magnificant that the color scheme on Lucy brings a great emphasis on her depression. Secondly, it is nice that Paulo came all this way to help her even though he was unaware of her deep depression. Maybe if Jordan would let him talk to her or something then that could lighten up her heart a little bit. I’m hoping for the best.

Comment ID #215745

To mr.awesome:
I think Mike was a little over the top, he could have ended the friendship and said things in a less harmful way and he could have stopped a bunch of times but he felt the need to dig the salt covered knife in every vulnerable place she had. He maliciously broke her down with no remorse. Her abuse to him was nothing in comparison to what he did to her.
My brother used to be abusive towards his friends when he was younger and then he was told by his friends that it needs to stop or he will lose them as a friend. They even stopped hanging out with him until he got the idea. He learned. Mike could have sat down with Lucy a long time ago and talked to her in a way that my brothers friends did but he didnt, he just let it continue. No it wasnt right for Lucy to be abusive but you cant change a persons behavior if you dont say something about it before it gets bad. She knew it bugged him but never to the extent that he laid down on her that day.

You are right he could of done it in a nicer way however I know why Mike my have taken it to far. Some people bottle up there emotions and don’t talk about them Mike didn’t talk about the things Lucy did to him he only yelled back which only makes it worse. So when he’s had enough he explodes with rage and hate. This happened to my a few years ago and I ended punching a kid and spending the rest of that day with my school counselor. And Lucy and Paulo fans don’t want you being mad at me but I think Mike and Lucy will make up. So any my point is Mike may have gone too far but its understandable.

@Thantos: You have some serious issues with a fictional character bro. Chill and enjoy the drama festering.

On another note, DAT GREY SCALE. Ohjeeze Luce…you poor thing. Jordan, don’t be too hard on Paulo…I know you’re just trying to help and protect her in her time of need, but Paulo really isn’t a bad guy, and he cares rather deeply for your sis. e_e I also understand you’re probably upset that Paulo is in your house uninvited. |D

sorry for that i am just not in a good mood and have a headache. besides i find your hatred of to be very odd. Paulo is a very good person at heart and tries his best to help a friend if he sees that they are troubled. now that i think about it i may have a bigger problem than you since i am defending a fictional character. i try to see the reasoning of people’s actions so i can understand why they did it, it is because of this that i can’t find reason to hate almost any character in this series for their actions like Mike, Lucy, and Paulo. if you can Thanatos please tell me why you hate him.
p.s. i was very conflicted as to whether or not to post this and i hope Paulo can explain himself to Jordan before anything bad happens.

It’s obviously her brother… once you realize that Lucy’s in her room, the door slamed and Paulo’s still in the halway, thus it’s her brother standing next to Paulo IN THE HALWAY. :3

Not to sound like a complete *** but all u asses saying u would let Lucy cry on your shoulder you are lying for people to read your lousy comment. I have been alone for I have no dad my mom is sorta young but a doctor and I am a nice person but I am constantly insulted and left out. NEVER HAS ANYONE COME TO MY TABLE AT LUNCH AND SAY “hi can I sit with u” NEVER. To many people care more about looking good and cool over helping a child in need. I am in 10th grade and I am stil alone so if you have mental kid or a gay or outcast due to something that happened a long time ago give them a chance and help them. When u live life alone only the strong survive the weak suicide. The weak need you to say hi talk to them or give them a hug they value it more than u think…. I value it……. So please help them before they make a horrible mistake and due something dumb. I almost did and I Am losing my grip. If u understand please text me so I know I am making a difference 443 800 5480.

Taeshi, I have a premonition that this chapter will have a sad turn of events, please don’t make another sob story, make Paulo cheer her up by force! XD It’s just the kind of guy he grew up to be since middle school. 8-)

@Mr alone:
guy, remember that not everyone lives in your same country, here.

did you ever try to approach other people, instead of waiting for someone to come to you?

next, I’ll tell you this: don’t waste your life. it’s always worth living. suicide begins to be a reasonable choice only if you are 100% sure you will pass every day you have left in phisical, unbearable pain, without anyone to help you (so it’s not the case if you are in an hospital) and being sure you can’t do anything to help anyone in any way. you understand that it’s quite rare to be in a situation like that.

(exactly, why people insult you and leave you out? is there any valid reason or are they just that stupid?)


*reads strider’s comment*: “don’t feed the troll.
*reads two comments below*: “SHUT THE HELL UP TROLL

asd, the fact is that I think Thanathos isn’t a troll. he thinks he’s completely right and that what he says isn’t just ridiculous.

@Mr Alone - The only people who are “weak” are those who think they are. Yes, high school is a “dog eat dog” world, but why spend that time trying to be like someone else? Instead of waiting for someone to approach you, have you ever tried to approach someone else? Start small, like a classmate and move to bigger things from there.

I know there are people who care but they are few. Tell me the last time you helped someone and be truthful. And I had 2 weeks ago asked someone I did not know do u want to play cards he could of said no but instead made me look restarted and did a dramtic rejection. People like that feed on me to make the self stronger I am going to stay Alive and wait for my adult where my secret is no longer out there and will die in graduation.

Yeah… I remember those days.

Days, staring out the window, sitting on the bed.

Not hungry, no need to move, don’t have energy left.
It’s cold inside. Cold outside, I feel numb, so many thoughts going through my head, can’t focus, what am I even still doing here?

Should I lay down? Should I even bother? Why am I still here?
What is wrong with me? Why can’t I be the same as she is to him?
Does anybody care? Nobody cares. Why would they care? Look what I have done to myself, to the others, nobody wants to care.

Well, three years in an institution sure did it’s job.

I dunno guys I think Lucy has a right to sulk after that performance Mike gave her. I mean, I want her to ‘stand on her own two feet’ as well- but this is Lucy we’re talking about. It’s not gonna happen fast. She might even try some more pathetic stuff to get Mike back or something. We don’t really know. But I have a feeling that if she saw one of her ‘fare-weather’ friends as Mike put it, right now I think she’d try to play it off like nothing was wrong as to not scare them away or something. I don’t think she’s in the mood to really ‘rush’ to anybody right now, since she hasn’t called any one yet or gone crying to Paulo or Tess or something. I kinda see this as her just wanting to heal alone. I hope.

errrrr….. Please let Paulo see her =A= . But I really think he will. After feeling the vibes from that room, if he got kicked out by her brother I highly doubt Paulo’d let her fester in her depression. Even if he didn’t have conclusive proof she was down. I see a window confessional happening in the next few pages, you just wait.

Oh, what have we here? 8-D Sure to be a deep chapter! I hope Lucy’s brotehr inquires her behavior; I’m curious to see what will happen. I’m sure it’s due to Mike hating her and I hope Paulo does something about it! Lucy really needs a shoulder to cry on. Is anyone else thinking that this entire ‘Mike-hates-Lucy’ mishap is due to Sandy? Man, I dislike Sandy. If Paulo confronts Mike, this is officially my favorite chapter. If not, then I still love this new style!

Where’s your gavel? Your jury?
What’s my offense this time?
You’re not a judge but if you’re gonna judge me
Well, sentence me to another life

Don’t wanna hear your sad songs
I don’t wanna feel your pain
When you swear it’s all my fault
‘Cause you know we’re not the same
No, we’re not the same, oh, we’re not the same

Yeah, I’ve got friends who stuck together
We wrote our names in blood
But I guess you can’t accept that the change is good
It’s good, it’s good

Well, you treat me just like another stranger
Well, it’s nice to meet you, sir
I guess I’ll go, I best be on my way out

Oh damn! She’s so depressed the ROOM is black.
I’m just sad that Mike exaggerated, basically on a substantial level. Why if I could, I’d draw my own character in there to beat some sense into him. Honestly. Some women actually show more love and devotion by trying to hurt those who they really are enamored with, simply because most men find that a challenge. It’s basic.
But in Mike’s case, he’s had to watch her his whole life, and in truth, I believe he’s tried to keep her from finding another man, keep her close, because he knows he loves her. Sandy is just the woman he FEELS he loves.
Either that, or the writer is going to crush my soul in a mortar blast by making Mike with Sandy and Paulo with Lucy.
