I love this! Mike’s expression in the last panel is so adorbs!
Oh, and I hate his current scarf, too. He looked so much more gentler with the blue, the yellow and orange gives a firey look unfit for him.

Maybe soon we will see whether Mike had originally gotten a blue scarf because of Lucy or Sandy. I think the reasoning goes much deeper than the fact that he matches Sandy. Time will tell. Cute page.

now i have to know, Mike used to wear a blue scarf because of the blue eyes of Lucy , or the ribbon of Sandy?

Chileanguy July 20, 2012, 12:09 AM EST.

Comment ID #223177

For once we can say we could see that coming! But for a long time we have considered Michael’s scarf like a flag of his feelings, the blue one representing his friendship/love for Lucy. Now the blue scarf is back, but Michael’s feelings for Lucy are the opposite of what it should have represented.
This is either an ironic twist of fate or the hint of a new spiral of events that will change everything again!

Yes! I guessed correctly that the present was a scarf, nonetheless a blue one!

Funny how most of the Mike haters are jumping with joy now just because of the scarf. XD We knew it would happen. The Scarf and Bow are quite symbolic. Let’s just hope Lucy doesn’t lose her bow ;) Although MikexLucy fans might like that, right Taeshi? After all, if people were more perceptive, they would know exactly what I mean. ;)

I think it’s really cute for Sandy to do that. Now I wonder how Mike will feel in it since the last one there was meaning towards it. I know it wasn’t officially mention why he chose the old scarf in that certain color, but it kinda hinted in the chapter where Lucy was dreaming and how Mike reacted when he saw the old scarf in his locker after she confess her love for him.

New scarf, same as the old, but may have a different meaning now.

Welp, guys, looks like the blue scarf has risen from the ashes and been given new meaning. No more Lucy-scarf. xD

Which I really think is for the best. I missed the blue scarf, but I certainly do not think that Lucy and Mike should be friends anymore. Lucy would be too dependent. Mike would be an arsehole. It’s just… better this way.

Comment ID #223197

Oh Sandy you are so adorkable

Pondering the symbolism being displayed here, Mike changed Scarf to signify the change in his life when he finally confirmed things with Sandy, what does having a new version of the old scarf mean? that he might be a little less harmonal when he gets back? I wonder what memories will trigger from that scarf for him personally? SO MANY QUESTIONS

But for now enjoying the cuteness of this page, regardless of the intention or it’s effects, it’s a very sweet gift from Sandy and her desire to match with her boyfriend, despite her fashion life-style, is a beautiful gesture.

Yay! I love the blue colored scarves on Mike. The orangey-yellow one he has been wearing for quite a while now just didn’t fit him.

But now that he has this scarf, what will Lucy do?

This page is the first that made me really feel like squeeing.

From a storyline point of view, I think this is a really great way to hint at a hope for a better future. Mike’s not bad at heart, and the scarf could mean that he’s about to go back to his old ways.

If played like the real world, though, I’m afraid that the new scarf might not actually change anything. So far, though, Taeshi hasn’t really been known to subvert stuff like that, so I’m eager to see what will happen.

…Uh oh. Matching. Clothes. This could get ugly. This could be the start of a long saga of matching-ness. I smell danger. Soon it won’t be just matching clothes, it’ll be paper-mache sculpture portraits, it’ll be hiking and cupcakes with your face on them and plans for children and eventually it’ll be handcuffing you to the wall so you can’t leave and possessiveness and -
Mike. I totally hate your guts but even you don’t deserve this.

Blue scarf, blue eyes, blue bow-but which two are best? There must be a torrent of suppressed, latent and excited emotions swirling around inside Mike right now, and I don’t envy his position. Oh, Mikey, Mikey…three hearts-at least one will be broken in the end…at least… :unsure:

On the upside, Sandy is a shinning ray of positivity. (Wonder if Haley has 1001 comments about her, too? :P)

Hmm, sandy doesn’t know this but i think she might be causing a big mess in the future(i really hope i’m wrong). Also i missed his blue scarf it reminds me of happy times. What will lucy do when she sees him? Mike will have to talk to her eventually, but will he even get the chance? We’ll have to wait to find out.

I do recall the chapter in which Lucy was dreaming and was asked by dream mike if she wanted to know why he was so picky by with the color, till this day I had always thought it was because it resembled Lucy’s eye color, but now I know it was all for Sandy………. this is a super cute page though I think its adorable that she got him a present and that he accepted it without go all ballistic about it

But I never noticed that it matched Sandy’s ribbon…. ^__^;

That’s really interesting….
before I wondered if Mike knew that it matched Lucy’s eyes, or if it was just a coincidence….
Now I have to wonder if Mike knew it matched Lucy’s eyes, Sandy’s bow, both, or neither.

and where she says “so I just thought…” and her hands her up and we can’t see her head… she’s tying it in her hair. ^-^;

she was waiting till he saw the scarf to pull the bow out and put it in her hair, so that it would emphasize that they match. ^-^;

You know, Sandy and Lucy look practically the same. If Sandy didn’t have hair and tied a pink bow around her neck, or if Lucy had hair and wore a blue bow in her hair, they’d probably be identical. Which is why I find this so part so..perfect, I guess. That scarf, while matching Sandy’s bow in her hair, also matches the color of Lucy’s eyes. It’s almost like that scarf is a little piece of both of them.

Dero July 20, 2012, 2:13 AM EST.

Comment ID #223239

Hmmmm…. I do think the present is adorable buuuuut I’m a sucker for analysis of plot soooo.

When he first purchased his, he was really adamant about the color. Of course Sandy noticed that her bow matches, and this may seem reason enough for why Mike would be so determined to get a certain color. But this was during the time where Sandy was all but a passing fantasy, before they’d started calling each other and reiterating their feelings, and back when Lucy was the present, dominant factor in his life. And while the scarf may be a perfect match for Sandy’s bow, the color extends to Lucy’s eyes as well and in all likely hood he had originally bought the scarf to represent her instead.

When he first stopped wearing it, it was right around when we noticed the decline in his attention to Lucy, and the turn his feelings began to take toward the negative. It was also right around when he and Sandy were restating contact between each other. I feel like the blue scarf is symbolic of his bond with Lucy and I really hope that this signals their friendship being on the mend.

Behold the evolution, the previously “love Lucy” blue scarf becomes “love Sandy” blue scarf and Michael is finally the “good old blue scarf Mike” again.
If choosing a girl and and a matching scarf is the way to keep his mood under control then I’d say he is the one that has been needing a security blanket. Mad Lucy

Everyone is hoping for the good “old” Mike to come back and that the blue scarf is a sign of that. Something doesn’t feel right about that with me though, it could be more of an omen of the bad things that are going to happen in the near future… I’m looking at you, scar-face. >_>

So we all thought mike first got the blue scarf because of lucys eyes
sandy has always had a blue ribbon
sandy says that they “should keep on matching up” and that she “noticed something cute about the OLDER photos”
so taeshi had mike wear a blue scarf so we would think he wore it for lucys eyes.
but she also made sandy wear a blue ribbon.
we didnt really notice/care about that did we?
so instead of wearing it for lucys eyes mike was actually wearing that blue scarf to match sandys ribbon but taeshi made us think otherwise! dont you uuunderstand!? She flipped the *****ING*
Taeshi is obviously related to Andrew Hussie o 3 o

But seriously people what are we talking about here.
it its not like this is the most important and key information of the entire story that changes AAAARYYTHIN
this small object of symbolism serves more as an interesting little fun fact.

Comment ID #223259

Did anyone else knew that she was going to get Mike a Blue scarf as well?!

Because this was one of my predictions! As I saw on the Booru a while back, his change of scarf resulted in his change of attitude. Since Sandy has talked some sense into him and he is going to wear a scarf just like he wore it ages ago, I think things will start turning to either normal, or a very tragic end.

Tesh, I swear to god this is what you were planning for ages to happen, ever since he got that new scarf from Tess, you were planning to get Mike’s scarf back. I can just see it.

This chapter has changed my opinion of ‘MikeXSandy’ I love it~ Their so cute together~ I hope now Mike will at least apologize to Lucy for how he acted… Maybe they’ll even become friends~ I don’t think Lucy will become as dependant again… But it’d help her a lot if they could be friends again…

exactly what I wanted to say. lucy will be disappointed when she finds out that he put it back for sandy (not that she can expect him to put it for her).

edit: oh, I was almost forgetting: maybe we will see a flashback of how mike obtained the old blue scarf. if he really got it to match with lucy’s eyes, he will remember about it and feel conflicted (I hope, trololol).

With any luck, the blue scarf will herald the return of the good Mike that we all first loved having around. But sadly, people don’t change just from what they wear.

They’re both so so so happy. I wish it was like that with Lucy and Mike, but I’m glad they found each other. Everyone deserves to be with a person that will hunt down old photos to find you the exact color of scarf you used to wear. Everyone deserves to be with someone who is willing to put aside a serious argument with a childhood friend for them. I’m really, really glad that, at least for this moment, they both deserve each other.

iluvsushi July 20, 2012, 2:14 PM EST.

Comment ID #223332

So we all know that Mike got the blue scarf in the first place to match Lucy’s eyes. Blue scarf = his and Lucy’s relationship

And every time he sent pictures to her, she noticed it. I guess she just automatically thought that the scarf was meant to match her cute lil’ bow - because didn’t she always wear her hair in a blue bow?

Around this same time, Mike got a new scarf, an orange one. Orange scarf = Mike being a complete and utter douchenozzle, keeping his distance and shutting Lucy out.

So now Sandy is giving him back the blue scarf, after talking sense into him - which I suppose means that, ta-da! Mike and Lucy are about to repair their relationship. Sandy sure is slick, although that might just be her trying to ‘match with her boyfriend, uguu~’.

Sandy probably doesn’t know that he got the blue scarf to match Lucy’s eyes, and the fact that she got it to match her bow is cute, but Mike probably won’t wear the scarf if he’s not with Sandy, because wearing it will make it awkward for him to be around Lucy, making it seem like (to him) that he’s trying to connect to her, even though Lucy won’t know. Realistically, Mike will go and think about what Sandy said, but not wear the scarf. He may or may not be as harsh to Lucy as he was before, but most likely it’s not symbolism that he and Lucy will get back together. Just because the scarf is back doesn’t mean he’s automatically going back to the way he was.

Yay, Sandy and Mike match again!!! Also, instead of saying that Mike’s orange scarf makes him a jerk, I rather think that that scarf made him stand up for himself. It has Gryffindor colors, and Griffindors are brave, though also reckless sometimes. Now he can go back to being a Ravenclaw Mike (go Ravenclaw!!!).

Mike got his scarf after Sandy left, as you can see here, he did not have any scarf http://www.bittersweetcandybowl.com/c15/p9.html so there’s no proof to state his blue scarf is because of Lucy’s eyes, it can also be because he wanted the same color of Sandy’s bow. Also Sandy always had her blue bow, she’s not taking it from nowhere to replace or copy Lucy. Take a look to the archive, guys. :/ So Sandy saw Mike’s old photos and noticed he got a scarf that matched with her old bow and she liked it. What’s so weird about that?

@ Comatose

He got the blue scarf because Lucy told him he should wear one (“All gay guys wear scarves!”) Even though he isn’t gay, he wore it because he was trying to connect to her. He even chose the color to match Lucy’s eyes, which she didn’t pick up on.

Somewhere along the way, Mike either lost or damaged his scarf (I can’t remember which, it was in an older chapter) and got a new one from Tess (the orange and yellow one). He kept that one and didn’t bother getting a replacement because he was “done with Lucy”.

This meant he acted more like a “jerk” during the time he had the scarf (what everyone is referencing). No need for more flashbacks! I think we’ve had enough of those for a while :p

@Effie: that comic you linked to, http://www.bittersweetcandybowl.com/c15/p9.html, is happening again. I mean, he’s not even Lucy’s FRIEND anymore, now that Sandy is his love interest. He may not realize it, but you don’t have to be romantically interested in someone to be her friend. And it’s not like she did anything to you but say “I love you.” How is that bad enough to get punished with neglect? I know he must be embarrassed but he’s been her best friend since before he met Sandy— and before Sandy, he was Lucy’s only friend. Can you really just ignore her because one of you has unrequited love for the other? Only when it’s not you who’s in love, I suppose, you hypocrite.
Mike, I know it’s hard, and you’re awesome. But you’ve been staying out of her life for too long. Maybe you need time to heal, but while you heal, she hurts.

Just seeing him hold the scarf like that makes me want to cry. I’ve been following this comic for so long…the blue scarf doesn’t seem to match him anymore, somehow…as if he had overgrown it. ._. His hands seem to have grown big to grab it like that…or it’s just me. *sniff* Mike’s lucky. He’s got several old childhood friends to be with a old stuffs to be with. For me, when something or someone leaves, they never come back and they become a part of my past. I never hear or see them again…until Facebook came along. 8-D

@GUEST The problems between Mike and Lucy are both’s fault. Lucy has a big part of it because from the beggining she kept bothering and being abusive to him even though she knew he didn’t want to be her friend. Mike was a kid, he didn’t think in consequences of putting all his attention on his crush so he left Lucy behind (considering he didn’t care much about their friendship as he looked at her as an abusive pain in the ***) Years later she forgave him and he learned to appreciate her. Also Lucy and Mike were ok with the Sandy thing but their friends kept bothering them with both being together and insulting Mike with being a cheater what helped on making him angry. Lucy grew romantic feelings and she told Mike but their problems didn’t start from there, he started to dislike Lucy because of her being abusive all these years, and comparing her with Sandy he lost his romantic interest in her, and now that she’s heart broken everyone blames it on him like if he were always the bad guy and that’s what ****** him up the most. He didn’t acted the way he should but how else would someone as stubborn as Lucy understand that he’s tired of that and that he wants her out of his life? Lucy became a chore again and he couldn’t notice her effort on changing to think she’s different now.

Seriously wtf is with the uber ****** comments of “OMG HE GOTSEDED IT FER LUCY’S EYE O3O”…..

And as for the Sandy’s bow thing, that might be true, who knows he did get it after he met her so maybe it was a deep seeded color for him….

But then again these are talking cats in a fictional romance drama about high school (written by a genius who knows how to toy with people’s emotions I might add good job Taeshi my dear I’ve never been able to feel so much for fictional characters as I do with yours) so what is the deal with people trying to psycho analyze these characters into real beings??

@Pokemaster He actually did get it to match Lucy’s eyes.
in the chapter before she admits that she loves him, she has a dream, and he likes her again, and he’s wearing the blue scarf, then she sees him with sandy, and he’s back to his orange scarf. The orange one represents the new dick Mike who nobody likes, and he only cares about himself and Sandy now, it seems. Let’s hope the blue scarf brings back the old Mike.

@SeeU @Pokemaster We can’t actually assure the blue scarf is for Lucy’s eyes or Sandy’s bow. As I posted before, Mike got his scarf time after he met Sandy. About Lucy’s dream, well, it was Lucy’s dream, her mind related the blue scarf with Mike loving her and being sweet with her and the striped one with Mike loving Sandy and being mean with him. In the dream the Mike with blue scarf that loved her almost told her why he chose that specific color for the scarf, but even if he told her it was because of her eyes, it’s still being her dream, her subconscious telling her what she believed or wanted to believe but not necessarily the reality. It’s the same with Sandy, she saw the photos and noticed Mike’s scarf was the same color as her bow so she thought it was because of her bow’s color. We can’t assure anything yet until it is revealed in the comic.

Sandy’s bow, Mike’s scarf, and Lucy’s eyes matching is nice, but Doublet did a wonderful piece showing Mike x Haley matches just as well.

i feel like the scarf kind of symbolizes how he’s caught between lucy and sandy. first it was blue for lucy’s eyes, now its blue for sandys bow.

I reiterate that these are fictional characters and that we should sit back and enjoy the lovely story brought to us instead of psychoanalyzing it every page, please?

Yay the blue scarf I remember from the start is back. I was always fond of this couple, To the above comment though, it isn’t normal for them to not be friends. I think Mike SHOULD forgive Lucy but she should also be a little less harsh on him with all the violent acts and what now.
Taeshi your art is amazing and your ideas are beautiful, I look forward to every new update.

It’s so hard to choose whether Lucy or Sandy should get the happy ending, they’re both so nice! Well, Lucy isn’t exactly ‘nice’, but you know..She’s Lucy Mad Lucy.

And, I’m surprised that Mike is the common factor of all these problems.

I’m happy that he finally has his old attire back, but what about ol’ Scarffie rotting in his locker?
I hope his old scarf is ok… :(

The SCARF HAS RETURNED! It is the ultimate metaphor of Mike and Lucy’s relationship, notice how when he lost the Blue one their relationship like DIED! But he is “planning” on talking to Lucy and he got his Blue scarf back!
People see the connection.

I knew it would be the scarf… but I always thought the shade of blue was meant to match Lucy’s eyes.
