Ahh Mike, y u no have faith in self? Also, Sandy reminds me of a condescending parent. “Hello son, will you stop whining? It’s not like you even have nice clothes to wear.” (Ever noticed how pretty much every main character has been seen in nice clothes but Mike.)
Also, this is probably the most unusual conversation for people who haven’t seen each other in 5 years. “Oh, you’re nervous about seeing me, your girlfriend for the first time in many years, I can’t imagine why. *Insert shocked face here*”

Ohh, I like how chill she is with this whole situation. “Ah, yeah, long lost boyfriend, this is normal, yo.” I can’t tell if I’m feelin’ adorableness from Mike’s nervousness or irritation. He should man uppp, but he’s never been that kind of person I suppose. For some CRAZY reason, I don’t think Sandy will ever know about Lucy unless the conversation came into the most awkward and complete standstill possible, and she blurted out the only thing she could think of. Even then, Mike would never tell her that he broke her and their friendship, that’s just unrealistic.

Haha, ohhh yes I do love how sandy makes him awkward. I bet it’d take quite a bit of prying to make her feel a little more awkward considering her current line of work.

Taeshi (and suitcase) you never cease to please those that read your comic. IMO it’s probably one of the set on the web and I’ve read a LOT of web comics. Also to those who give you the personal vendetta that “if you don’t do it my way, I’ll never read you comic again”, these comics (as stated oh so many times before) are planed waaaay in advance… They probably had the ending all worked out a while ago I would think.

*takes a breath* ok well that’s my long-*** post for the moment.

I love this.

I’ve been lurking, reading this comic for a long while, hoping to comment.
To be able to articulate, to explain the brilliance of the storyline you are spinning, my own disbelief at its wonderfulness.
To try and figure and support my favorite characters and relationships, using logic to hypothesis the direction of this series, to organize, rationalize…but…

If, a month or two ago, you had told me that I would be reading this, I would have scorned you for dare suggesting I would be reading something so mushy. I am reading something so mushy. AND I AM ENJOYING IT. I am getting excited over fictional characters, and not even thinking, only daring to HOPE that things will turn out right. Characters I could not stand slowly become friendlier, substance emerges where before there was just pictures and text. I am watching these characters get wound up and walk and talk and do things! Living, really becoming real.

This latest development especially. Its hard to cheer for a relationship with a character that isn’t even there when another is clearly suffering. But now, viola! Here it is. Before, I felt the relationship was more…young. Innocent. Fluff, no real substance. But now, I realize they care about each other. Still, I worry. Lucy seemed to perk up knowing what day it was, and nothing is more dangerous than a woman scorned. Or maybe she’s just happy for Micheal….oh dear.

I’m really enjoying this chapter. I can’t express how much I’ve wanted to find out more about Sandy. I would however like to say to everyone commenting on how Sandy will react if she found out about the way Mike treated Lucy, that I highly doubt Sandy would care & I doubt we’re gonna see or hear about Lucy in this chapter. I’m totally a HUGE Lucy fan, but I really wanna just sit back & enjoy this chapter for what it is.

@Taeshi: just wanted to say that I love the artwork & story ( don’t ever let anyone make you feel bad about you’re own work and creative style). I can’t wait to see what you’ve got in store for us. much love for you & suitcase

It’s kind of weird having a chapter with no trauma/drama, especially after the last few (yes, December stands out like a sore thumb, but let’s not forget the equally dramatic chapter, At Loose Ends).
Looking at it, this whole comic has been one heck of a roller coaster ride; it goes way up, it goes way down…way up, way down.
The first slew of chapters were very lighthearted and carefree. You could tell there were some deeper issues, but they were lightly touched upon or just hinted at. It was easy to smile and laugh back then.
And out of nowhere things start to take a turn downhill. What was once funny becomes serious and the excusable becomes near unforgivable. (Just look at some of the recent fan art of Mike depicted as a stone-hearted guy with a vengeful nature staring through icy, although somehow brilliant eyes).
Arguments start to flare up between readers and those that still just want to laugh about it kind of get pushed off to the side (yeah, when there’s a war going on, laughing between two people pointing guns is kind of a no no).
Then we get the nuke, mainly in the form of December. If you couldn’t feel the fist closing in on your heartstrings before, then you sure as heck do now. About everyone is in an uproar and looking for a resolution to the fight…then Just Beautiful comes along and tries to pacify a storm.
It’s kind of a surreal feeling, almost a numbing one.
Like I said, it goes waaay up and then it goes waaay down.
The only thing on my mind now is Lucy. Is she going to kill herself? Is she going to kill someone? Is she going to move out of town? Will she hook up with someone else or become the “Lone Star Ranger”? She’s going to do something and I am itching to know what it is, because that’s where I feel the fire for BCB is right now.
Of course, if you take into account that December never happened, then the fire probably wouldn’t have been there at all, but it happened and I’m sure others can feel its there.

I’m assuming that they will only be able to meet for this short time after the show, which seems a bit of a shame for them to not have longer. I guess they will have to make the most of the time they have now. I’m guessing Sandy changed the most, she looks a lot older, but she still has that same happy smile. I have to admit the more I see of Sandy the more I like her, she seems a sweet girl, I don’t think Mike deserves her.

…the last panel made me get this weird itch. Like once Mike starts getting comfortable around Sandy…he’ll accidently slip into mannerisms that were common to him and Lucy. Nothing physical mind you, but like something will slip and make not only him stop, but Sandy too…

This page is very well made taeshi, it’s been a while since i posted and i’ve been wanting to comment for the last few pages but i just couldn’t voice what i wanted to say until now. The story you created is amazing, bringing a range of emotions between laughter to tears from readers around the world. This story you have bee weaving is breath-taking and the characters’ personalities are very realistic. Yes, sometimes life can be like this, very light-hearted and then turning dramatic. You have created a big world the interests a lot of readers and makes them cheer you on to continue your wonderful work. I know I couldn’t do a comic as good as yours but I can still cheer you on as you make this. Good work Taeshi and Suitcase, you two deserve a reward.

I just can imagine it… Mike and Sandy walking round town, all romantic laughing, trying to get to know eachother better, and then Paulo appearing out of nowhere dragging Lucy behind, and screaming at Mike about what the hell did he tell her (Lucy I mean) - cause he somehow squized out some infromation out of Lucy. Mike expodes once more and starts going on about this rebound thingy again. Sandy sees it, scolds him for it (seeing how Lucy is completely broken and all, on the venge of crying) then some more talking, with a big finaly where Mike realizes Lucys good intentions and wil, to change compared to how he treated her.
Well… or at least something that will help them to build a friendship.

As for the art, Im now fully loving the watercolours

Yes, oh god yes I get that feeling. For some reason? Sandy looking through her texts on her phone has me reeeeal antsy. Like she’s going to mention something unsettling. Not in a bad, “You said you wanted to break up but I just didn’t believe you” way - more in a, “I’m glad you decided to not be friends with Lucy anymore” way and Mike’s, “WTF are you talking about??” will be our way of finding out that Lucy /did/ do something to his phone when he wasn’t looking. A sad, horrifically final sort of something.

Taeshi this comic is amazing YOUR ART oh your art I look forward to Monday with great anticipation! (I see that, “Aw yeah, just how she remembers!” pride, Mike, I SEE IT.)

I really don’t know what to think of this couple yet. I mean Sandy really is beautiful, and her and Mike are on totally different levels. I can’t help but wonder how this whole thing will turn out.

She’s going to be there for two weeks right? If Mike wants to stay in his little bubble with Sandy he’s probably going to have to avoid Paulo. I say there’s a 50/50 percent change of Paulo doing one of these two things -

1: asking Mike about Lucy’s condition (probably in front of Sandy)
2: getting lost in Sandy’s beauty and forgetting everything he was doing.

Also, what’s going to happen when Sandy has to go back home? Mike can’t just go back to the way things were before… Lucy’s probably going to avoid interaction with Mike at all costs; so what’s going to happen when an empty spot appears at the table? I guess there’s a chance Lucy will still follow Mike around to spite him or because she’s half dead inside… but it’s not like people wont notice.

You also have to think about it; In the long run, Mike and Sandy’s relationship still looks rather bleak. It’s a long distance relationship between a normal high schooler and a supermodel! Of course there’s the statement “love will find a way” but you’ve got to remember; Mike and her almost lost contact once, and they’re still just highschoolers.

Though in the end… I suppose this is all up to Taeshi, and we really have no idea what she’s going to throw at us. :D

That last panel is Mike’s “I will now eat my scarf” face.

And it is marvelous.

But in all seriousness, I am really loving this chapter! Recently, it’s seemed that Taeshi’s been going back to more of the old lightheartedness mixed with drama feel, and I love it! For the first time in a while, I really feel that this is the best the series has ever been! (Not that I didn’t like where it was before. I just always felt that the middle of the comic was its highest point before now.) You’re doing an amazing job, Taeshi!

@Riepocalyptic: So let me see if I have this straight. You’re suggesting that Paulo drag Lucy (who is in an incredibly fragile state right now) all around town for the sole purpose of confronting the person who put her in this state (and you say drag, so presumably this is all against Lucy’s will). If that actually happened, I would have to say that Paulo would turn into a very despicable person. And given how you described it (Paulo coming out of nowhere and yelling accusations at Mike), I would actually think Sandy would take Mike’s side, even if Mike did blow up (if someone just walks up and starts yelling at someone else, regardless of the reason, it’s pretty understandable if the other person starts yelling back).

Such a nice moment between these two.

I wasn’t surprise that Mike got sensitive during the last few pages, but it was still just funny to see the reaction from his face. XD

Mike, it’s okay to freak out and have all those questions running through your mind, but it’s just embarrassing to text it all to your girlfriend. As you have just learned, she will laugh at you, she will always laugh at you.

There is one problem with this chapter. Mike and Sandy haven’t seen each other for years… And they haven’t kissed yet??

Dots, everyone is saying like the same thingy! “Adorable”, “Cute”, “Mike’s nervous”, “What will Sandy think of Lucy”, “Lucy”, whut else?
Since ever that I knew that Sandy never had any responsibility for the topic, Mike was being like totally obsessed by her, but he’s happy when she’s around. I ship Mad Lucyx :unsure:, but I don’t matter to watch these cute moments, but I absolutely don’t like Mad Lucyx 8-)

Sounds like they’ve switched gender roles.

I’d have to ask why you hate LucyxPaulo. Ok, maybe it’s that Paulo reminds me of my own personality, but I think he’s a lot nicer than Mike; Mike said he hated Lucy, with no let down, if I remember he even called her something along the lines of a parasite? Him as opposed to the person who helped her feel better when Mike did something similar earlier? Just doesn’t make sense to me.

On an unrelated note, I just had one of those “what the hell am I doing moments” when writing so much about a romantic subplot in a cartoon webcomic about cats. D:

The last part of your comment has successfully blown my mind. I am now very sad about my presence on the internet and this site.
Also, successfully is a horrible word. It has three freaking sets of double consonants.

@Nikita and Neospector

Do you guys realize that when you say things like that, Taeshi takes them personally? I know you probably meant no harm, but on some level, saying those kinds of things upsets her. It’s like saying “I’m ashamed to like this site”, or “I’m ashamed to contribute to this site”.
That’s probably not what you meant at all, maybe more along the lines of “When I put this in perspective it seems a little silly”, but I don’t think she assumes it’s because you’re applying serious, deep, thought-provoking themes to a lighthearted-themed web-comic… She takes it personally.

This chapter’s amazing, a nice break from the drama with the rest of the group, which I thought was going to be needed sometime in the near future a couple chapters back.

Seeing this side of Michael again is a great change, and I think the art here accents the adorable awkwardness of his first meeting with Sandy in years.

Michael I think is always going to be one of my favourite characters, and he’s the main reason I got so into this comic, since I can relate to him. His ability to hold back his temper until the last possible moment, being awkward even around his girlfriend, and generally, he’s the nice guy with a dark side.

No, I’d say I said that I just had one of those moments. You know, like on Mythbusters where they have that moment and then continue anyway? I’m ashamed in the same way I’m ashamed to admit I’m a Maplestory fanboy…that is to say, not at all. 8-)

i dont like sandy. mike used to be my favorite character but ever since the lucy incident ihes not. lucy may be a meanie but thats just her. mike doesnt realize who saved his life back in that ally or how lucy always made him laugh when he was down. sandy doesnt see evrything lucy has done. but at least lucy apologizes. sandy and mike should realize the truth. lucy is the girl for mike. lately paulo has showed he really cares about lucy. he is now my top favorite boy character. i feel with lucy. this exactly happened to my friend abbey. she is exactly like lucy. and she only shows her true self when with those she trusts. mike has dissapointed me. lucy, i am on ur side. i hope the other bcb characters dont stop being friends with lucy. mike u strung lucy along. if u didnt want to be friends with her u never should have looked at her let alone talk to her. so in actuality ur the one at fault.

Lucy may have done some good, and yes, she did stop a few people from hospitalizing Mike, but even with the times she’s made him laugh, there have been just as many — if not more — times where Lucy has gone and hit Mike. At first, he just shrugged it off, and now, obviously, just forced himself to take it lightly, but someone can only do that for so long, and Mike finally snapped. He reached the point where it wasn’t funny and he didn’t want to take it anymore, but Lucy couldn’t see that, and continued until she made him explode. I love Lucy and Mike, nor am I saying either one was right, because, actually, I think both were in the wrong, but the situation was understandable, along with at least some of Lucy’s sudden depression.
