Took long enough! Also, second to last panel, Sandy has the ‘I’m going to kill you now’ face. From Sandy watching her mom leave and then making a move. You can clearly tell Sandy’s mom does not approve of Mike.

oh mah glob.
Kissy smoochy.
So, I didn’t really like Sandy, she seemed like someone who wanted to break the relationship between her boyfriend and a close friend who loves him also. She seemed like she was going to use him. But no… she’s actually very sweet and considerate. She understands Lucy and her extreme want to help Michael live his life to his fullest with her no longer bothering him and hurting him like he had to put up with for years. I adore her, and I love drawing her, I’ve drawn quite a few characters, including Lucy, Sandy~, Paulo, and Zach. They, right now, are people who I look up to… in a comic. :B
But we all really hated Sandy and didn’t like her for telling Michael she didn’t like her because of how he worded it, and told him to talk it with Lucy and show her how it affects him, and he took it wrongly.
I do foresee quite a lot of fan art. c:

yay! aww parting is such sweet sorrow. i forgot where i heard that from. anyway this is the page we have all been waiting for or most of us. i wonder how long ‘til he starts feeling guilty or depressed probably by the end of this chapter. hey is it weird that this reminds me of romeo and juliet? lets see they are both in love, sandy’s mom doesn’t want her anywhere near him for more than 10 minutes or at all probably, and everybody around mike either don’t want it to work or don’t think it could work.

Okay, now that I’ve secured myself a place amongst the top comments:

Does anyone else notice that the comic’s title, “Bittersweet Candy Bowl” are the eyecolours of Sandy, Lucy and Mike? (inb4 slowpoke)

Lucy is the Candy, Mike is the Bowl holding the candy and Sandy is the Bittersweet taste that comes and changes the candy. Right guys?! Right?

I kind of like Sandy now. I didn’t before, but she seems like a likable enough character. Her mother could use some work though. All work and no fun makes Sandy grow up with misplaced priorities. Maybe. I need to see more of these two. Also, YAY KISSING! I’m still a LucyXMike fan, but I can be happy for these two too!

Well, this solidifies Lucy’s only real relationship choice!
Anyway, I now think mikexsandy is a match made in heaven, though really, sandy deserves someone that doesn’t brood about his life when he causes grief in other peoples. Ok, I guess Lucy did that too, but most of the time jokingly. As in, it was a joke in the comic. Mike would be in the graveyard right now if Lucy weren’t kidding. Oh boy, Sam’s gonna hear about this. And now.

Must resist the urge to squee… :nope:
Ah, couldn’t do it, SQUEEEEEE! :D

That aside, let me lay down a prediction past you guys:
So, Mike’s going to try to apologize, right? “For Sandy” as he said. My prediction is that Paulo is going to intercept him and confront him about what he did to Lucy, the two are going to fight either physically or verbally or both, and trainwreck their friendship. Mike may/may not then actually try to apologize to Lucy in person, but she’ll end up ignoring and rejecting it.
I’m basing this off of Paulo’s personality and the phone call he had with Lucy; Paulo’s loyal (but playful), right (kind of like me, but that’s unimportant)? So, given that he doesn’t know that Mike’s going to go apologize he’s going to assume that Mike’s acting like some big, arrogant, jerkface (which he was, back then) and being as loyal to (and, quite frankly, in love with) Lucy, he’s going to confront Mike.

Just speculation, of course, I doubt I’ll get it correct, I’m bad at this sort of thing.

What, waited for a pairing to kiss? Yeah, drama/romance titles tend to draw that out, but when it happens, it’s pretty cool.
They really do seem great together, Mike and Sandy.
In time, hopefully Mike becomes a little more courageous, because I think we all know who’s acting as the supporting pillar in this relationship.
Still thinking about Lucy, but I think it’s safe to say that I feel this pairing is a solid one and I’m pretty satisfied with it.
Abbey also has his Daisy, so a little bit of sunshine in that. It’s my hope that Lucy and Augustus get a little bit of loving too, because they’re the ones who are hurting the most and need it the most.
In regards to my own little sunshine from BCB, Sue, well…the gal is tough as nails, cool as ice, and sharp as a knife. Still, wish she’d get a bit of loving too.

Sneaking kisses Sandy? Clever! :P

Anyway, Mike finally got a kiss from Sandy after all this time. He got to see her again, hug her, and now they’ve kissed. However, what worries me right now is…. well… :unsure: Will Mike really talk with Lucy? As we all know, Mike has changed so much since chapter 1. He’s gone from the nice guy we all used to know and love to a big a-hole of a jerk (though still acts like a nice guy towards his ‘friends’)… Or maybe… will Lucy pop into his head during this kiss?

… Unlikely. :( Hopefully, Mike will listen to Sandy and go talk to Lucy… I’m just not sure if he’s actually going to make it better or worse. :unsure:

What if Lucy committed (or at least attempted) suicide? Would he continue to act like a jerk or will he feel guilty for what he said to her back in ‘December’? *shrugs* Who knows? We won’t know until either the end or during this chapter… or maybe we won’t know until next chapter….

Going back on topic of the current chapter, this is amazing and cute! ^^ My concerns still remain, but I’m hoping it gets better. :) Or… I should stop worrying now. ^^;;

Comment ID #223717

So they finally kissed. To all the people thoroughly pleased, kudos to you… but as for me, I’m sitting back in my chair not knowing WHAT to think. Any good impressions I still had on Mike have long since dissapeared, so I can’t help but think he doesn’t deserve Sandy’s effection.

My opinion on Mike isn’t that he’s bad; he’s just a mess. One moment he and Lucy are the best of friends, and the next he hates her and doesn’t give a **** what anyone else thinks. Not to mention it only takes him 2 minutes to forget the whole ordeal and turn into a giggling ball of joy. Now Sandy is the one cleaning his messes, and she shouldn’t have to deal with that. She’s already lonely enough and her mom is evil, so if anyone should be being pampered and kissed it’s her… not vice-versa. Why should she be the one changing Mike’s diapers? If she’s happy, that’s what should matter… it’s just that she deserves so much more.

And I wonder: who IS this person? Mike was the all around good-guy, he had a good sense of competition, and a good tolerance. Now he’s just a blabbering mess of all sorts of peronality traits and none of them really apply. In my eyes Sandy could’ve kissed a brick and it would’ve had the same meaning. Mike needs to get himself straitened out and choose between antagonist or protagonist. Then I can figure out how I feel.

Come on Mike, grow a spine. You should’ve kissed that girl the moment you saw her. It’s nice to see that one of them had the guts.

Go Sandy! I never hated her, but I’m starting to like her more and more. Although she’s in danger of becoming a bit Mary Sue-ish, to be honest.

Honestly, I’m not too impressed. We were all waiting for it! But I think they are adorable, don’t you? Although Mike/Lucy is practically dead now, it’s more of an okay pairing to me. I love Sandy, but Maishul didn’t quite deserve a kiss from her! Oh Tae, what have you done to us? I just think Sandra dear deserves better. Also, Mike, what have you turned yourself into? I can only hope that blue scarf reminds you of old times with Lucy, and I hope you do manage to talk it out. I’m okay with Sandy/Mike in the ending I guess, it’s just that my dreams would be fulfilled if Lucy and Mike could be close friends again. :)

Hhmm. That devious little smirk was pretty unexpected. I wonder what’s in the letter, though…?

I also wonder whether Mike will have the guts/lack of common sense to wear the blue scarf around everyone from now on. Lucy definitely isn’t going to react well.

Oh god, this freaked me out slightly XD When I was leaving my boyfriend after meeting him in real life for the first time (long distance internet relationship) I quickly kissed him like this and ran, gosh he was shocked but he loved it. I drew it a long time ago http://kitmit13.deviantart.com/gallery/? catpath=scraps&offset=24#/d39qxmu looks kinda similar haha, Surprise kisses are the best kisses :D

It’s amusing to me how many people hated Sandy for no other reason than the fact she was between him and Lucy. I was guilty of it too at one point, but then I realized that there was barely enough information for me to make a proper judgement. I wonder if the people who still blindly hate her can stick to their guns at this point. She’s been shown to be nothing but a very caring, sweet girl, and she truly does love Michael.

Of course, he’d be better off with Lucy, wouldn’t he? The girl who has been nothing but unjustifiably violent and hateful towards him? The further the story heads along the less and less I like Lucy. Michael’s reaction may have been overblown but she had it coming, there was no reason for her to act the way she had all those years - embarrassment about her love for him is no justification. He’s better off with Sandy, who has proven to be a very wonderful girl.

Mike needs to step up his game and stop being so shy around her. Sandy is definitly the “man” in this relationship. But either way, still cute. I’m still warming up to MikexSandy but I’ll get there. Still, Sandy does seem like a rebel child, going against her mother’s approval of Mike or relationships in general. Congrats to her!

Well I’m still a pretty big lucyXmike fan… I mean think about before how mike treated Lucy. They weren’t scared to be silly and childish. Sure mike feels taken for granted by Lucy because she always was mean to him but he can’t say they weren’t great friends for that time. Don’t get me wrong though if Taeshi decides to keep these two together that’s okay with me.. I just really wish mike will stop being a total jerkwad. What guy SRSLY keeps a grudge this long??? Especially to an emotional teenage girl who was going into serious depression??? And what’s even more sad is that Lucy really didn’t have any other friends. She just clung on to people because she liked feeling secure. Who doesn’t? I still love Lucy the most.

Oh yeah and mike why can’t u make that move yourself?! Sureeeee leave it up to the girl to be bold… Dumb cat humph!

@Neospector MIke and Paulo are friends? When did that happen? From what I’ve seen, Mike doesn’t seem to like Paulo and simply tolerates him whereas Paulo just kept teasing or making fun of by calling him gay and got a bunch of girls to beat him up frequently because he got the idea in his head that Mike was “cheating” on Lucy. And he hasn’t apologized for that. Doesn’t really seem like any kind of friendship exists between the two.

Now that I think about it, aside from Daisy, Tess and maybe Sue, the rest of the cast doesn’t seem to have any real friendship with Mike as barely anyone aside from those 3 had friendly interactions with him so far.

Mike wouldn’t feel any guilt if Lucy tried to commit suicide. He’d probably be upset she didn’t actually die. And if she did die, he’d probably be relieved. He’s a terrible person entirely and doesn’t deserve happiness in my opinion.

Well, they sit together, don’t they? And hang out with each other?
It’s simple to say they’re all friends, the drama is part of the comic about a bunch of friends. The friendship is the support that the drama is based on.

I’m kind of running out of analogies here… :x

Sandy’s rape face in the second to last panel is priceless. She was all “before I go, I’m gonna get me some of that!”. I love it.

Mike sure is a lucky guy… hopefully he won’t ruin that luck by being mean to the rest of his friends… and Lucy.

Is it really possible to dislike Sandy? So many people were -blatantly- overreacting to her concern for Mike, when her responses were perfectly justified (although I still say that, the way the comic was done, that the entire situation seemed a bit unfair).

@Firefly How can she be ruining his life when she’s the principal thing that makes him happy? How is she ruining his life? He sures misses her a lot but he loves her and is really happy to have her. It’s not like he’s missing too much for being with her. If you say it because of Lucy, remember the whole problem with her was Mike’s decision, Sandy didn’t made him act how he did.

Oh, and @Vix, I believe that you are misunderstanding something here, and its that Lucy really has been torturing Mike since kindergarden. I believe that Mike really hasn’t been hard ENOUGH, but that’s my thoughts, and not his character. Think about it, would you like some weird ### girl to be stalking you for life and hurt you both mentally and physically for more than 10 years while expressing obvious care for you (I know, I don’t get it too) although you already have a girlfriend? And when you finally have the courage to put up with it, would you mind that your so-called friend starts to “show feelings” to a jerk that you never liked after she confesses her love to you? This message is for everyone who thinks Mike is the jerk and Lucy is the almightly beautiful maiden with no faults in her life. This message was not intended to make anyone mad, im only saying what needs to be said. Some comments people are making are really reflecting on how the world is coming to be. That is all.
