Oh noes… I have a hunch the person we were all waiting for has arrived…

I can guess that the person who threw the snowball is either Lucy, trying to make them friends again or Paulo for the obvious reasons. Secondly whose house is that? Should it be Lucy’s that probably means it is Lucy, who may have been outside in an attempt to get over her angsty-ness. Then again, it could have been Paulo or one of Lucy’s other friends who was trying to see her or has just seen her. In the mean time, I guess Taeshi has left us with yet another cliffhanger at yet another weekend.
Either way, way too much thought going into this. Why do I think?

throwing snowballs at mike? funny thing is she is probably hiding in
the snow so he will be caught of guard as he gets ambushed by snowballs. Well i can still be hopeful, but i wouldn’t be surprised if it was paulo(last person mike needs to see right now).

It was totally Sandy! She’s staying for a little longer and just punked the heck out of Mike!

Or maybe it was Lucy…. a bit obvious, but it’ll be interesting to see if Mike can act civil toward her, and if she can not hit any of his berserk buttons…

Or maybe Paulo did it, just because. Snowballs hurt.

Those eyes man. They have so much regret, righteousness, sadness…He doesn’t know what to do right now. I don’t blame him. He did what he thought would make Sandy feel better and she turned it around on him. He wants so badly to be in a stable position with everyone, but is getting pulled from all sides. Hopefully that snowball is from Lucy, a little gesture that they can still be friends.

For a moment, as he walk away from Lucy’s home, he seems to be a bit sadden, probably for what occurred in “December”.

Interesting to who threw that snowball at Mike next week (I’m going to assume to be one of Lucy’s pet).

And I don’t think the MAJORITY of people who hate mike now fault him for HOW he handled the situation, they don’t fault him for trying to get away from Lucy cuz, lets face it, she WAS kind of an ***…. but i think most people are mad that he basically told her to die…

Cliffhanger Friday again? And I doubt It’d be Lucy. Paulo I can find a little more understandable because he would be the only other one to fire first.

SumFurry911 August 3, 2012, 12:19 AM EST.

Comment ID #224375

Of course it’s not Lucy. Lucy is locked up in her room feeling sorry for herself.

Unless of course she also happened to be out for a night walk in the snow and while lost in thought just happened to see Mike as he was also walking down the street and then decided that that moment was the perfect opportunity to hurl a snowball at the back of his head because she saw him turn away and he happened to miss her thus sparking a conversation that then leads to, at the very least, the start of an emotional recovery of some sort between the two of them or maybe even another ship crushing fight. (DAMN YOU CHAPTER 68)

However, it could just as easily be any other character since it’s not revealed in this page who threw the danged thing and everything between now and Monday is useless conjecture and you should all be ashamed of yourselves for assuming things about a creative process that you aren’t involved in.

Jade August 3, 2012, 12:22 AM EST.

Comment ID #224381

Well, as we all know, both Lucy and Mike can be very competitive and tend be much closer when they are competing. With this in mind, Lucy may be trying to take advantage of this by sucking Mike into a snowball fight with the intent of re-kindling a friendship between the two.

You sillies! It was obviously Mother Nature who threw the snowball! That’s why we can’t see the thrower. After all, EVERYBODY hates Mike rite?

Dnite August 3, 2012, 12:24 AM EST.

Comment ID #224384

I’ld be surprised if it’s Lucy, considering that last we knew, she wasn’t even leaving her room, let alone the house. I sort of doubt she’d even think of throwing a snowball at Mike at the moment. It’s a bit late for most of the pets to be out too. Though Lilly and Blur might be old enough to be out this time of night.

Part of me hopes it’s Lilly, because Mike likely will be so stunned to see it’s her that he won’t even be mad. After all she’s usually very level headed, but she may be vexed enough to hurl a snowball at Mike for setting off Lucy’s breakdown. While it would be a bit more satisfying if Paulo was behind it, it’ll create a bigger mess and such a commotion may set Lucy back a few steps if she hears it going on outside.

Alright guys lets be real here its not gonna be lucy it probly will be yashy cuz remember the text message she sent to sandy one noting she would leave him alone and paulo is at his house talking to lucy on the phone from last chapter and guessing that these are all happing at the same time im correct also remember from last chapter when paulo got hit in the back of the head and it was a cliffhanger everybody thought it was lucy byt it was yashy so most likely it is yashy because she snuck out to continue the snowball fight with blur and yashy saw mike and jit him in the back of the head

Comment ID #224391

That snow’s gonna melt and drip down his neck… oh no!

I like the mystery on this page. Not only do we not know for sure who threw the snowball, but we also don’t know if it was Lucy’s house in the first place. Granted, though, it probably is.

I’m guessing Paulo threw the snowball, since Lucy doesn’t look like she’ll be going outside anytime soon unless she has to, and she probably still sees Mike as a source of major danger for her, emotionally. Paulo “knows” it was Mike who did it, so he probably has a bone to pick with him.

Ooooh, so close! Good on Mike for taking steps towards Lucy’s place anyway. As angry as I still am at him, any sign of redemption and fixing things is encouraging!

And whether the snowball’s from Lucy or not, it clearly had an impact on him (sorry for the pun!). HE’S being reminded of the old days, just like the readers, yeah? :3 I think it’ll be Yashy or David or some random nameless kid having a few laughs, but the main point is, our boy’s thinking before he opens his big mouth again.

Thank goodness Sandy was able to plant a seed of reason! :D

I’m gonna go out on a limb here and say it isn’t Lucy. It wouldn’t make any sense (unless she thinks she’s hallucinating or something ‘cause of Mike wearing the “new-old” blue scarf). I’m thinking if that was Lucy’s house he was glaring at half-heartedly, that it was probably Yashy outside playing. She saw Mike, thought that he could use a snowball to the face, and hit him she’s done so before to Paulo, so…

If it’s not Yashy, it could very well be Paulo, but I don’t feel like that’s right either…

I dunno. Taeshi is the master of clliff hangers. We’ll have to wait ‘till Monday to see I s’ppose.

It’s got to be lucy, sam or possibly paulo because face who else throws snow balls at mike beside them. but my money is on lucy because one it would be one of the most ironic momments in this chapter for the story and plus i think mike is searching for lucy so he can correct some past mistakes he made. If he does this maybe he and lucy can have some closure and become friends again.

And did anyone realize how fast mike went from being a complete (excuse my language) D*** to being the more laid back mike he used to be instantly after Sandy gave him that blue scarf that looked like the one he lost some chapters ago? But all in all i think mike just needed someone else to help him see reason. I’m not going to lie at first i thought sandy had an ulterior motive for getting mike to sever all ties with lucy because se wanted mike all to herself but now that i have looked at it from both sides of the conflict i see sandy wasn’t the two-faced (again excuse my language) b**** everyone made her up to be. She actually thought that Lucy was being a bully but all that time she actually was just covering up her insecurities and feelings for mike. I think Sandy was the person that finally brought him back to reality. And for that i thank you Sandy.

Maybe now Mike can finally set things right with Lucy so they can be friends before winter break ends and work things out so things will go back to normal. But then again when are things ever normal at Roseville High? XD But in all seriousness i hope they can work things out.

this could go in a few different directions. now, I’ve been jonesing for a long-lost twin arc for quite a while, but I doubt something like that would happen during the last half of a completely unrelated storyline. more realistically, hopefully it’s Lucy, and maybe Mike will apologize due to his newfound perspective

actually, scratch that, I’m still hoping it’s a long-lost twin of some sort

YAY No death!

Idealy, I’d love it to be Sandy there to give up modeling and be with Mike because of my inner fangirl for them, but I think its either one (or a mixture of them) of Lucy’s pets (Yashi I’m putting my biggest bet on there), Paublo, or even Lucy who could be angry that he stopped by her house (If it is her house he’s at) and did the first irrational thing she could think of. Throw something. In this case a snow ball.

Paulo. Gotta be Paulo! Seems like the kind of thing he’d do to Mike, especially as a replacement for “Yo, buddy, gotta talk to ya!” What better way to get the attention of a close friend and top rival than throwing a snowball at the back of his big mopey head? 8-)

lol, more suspense. Now, who could’ve thrown that? Lucy, Paulo, David, or for the ppl that think it’s funny and fresh to deviate from the expected, Batman or any other set of minor/wallpaper characters? Whoever it is, they’ve got three pages to explain themselves.

Really love how all of these idiots think its Lucy throwing it. Seriously are you all ****ing stupid? What reason does she have when she clearly think Mike hates her and would be much better off without her? Take your fantasy wet dreams somewhere else.

IT’S PIKACHU! Naw, seriously, I have no idea who that might be. But I doubt its Lucy. Maybe it’s a automatic turrent? Though at the bottom of the page that short with Lucy using her camo to throw snowballs at Mike is being displayed. Sooooooo… yeah, clearly an omen.

Actually I did. According to your theory Mike sees Lucy as one of the guys. If that’s it, then I see Mike as one of the gays, since we had a chapter, when they played in snow, then back at home Mike tried to kiss Lucy. He was also clearly atracted to her a good ammount of time later, at the beginning of the comic. Also: who are you calling a “nameless mass”, punk?!

Mike does talk, talk, but does he walk, walk? Well, clearly he does. Since we got whole page of him, walking. Seriously, I call miss authress a liar! Those cliffhangers are fully intentionall and planned out! How come, there’s always most suspense during fridays? That’s no coincidence.

I don’t think that’s Lucy, she did after all say she was going to leave him alone. It could be one of the pets though…?

Comment ID #224460

It isn’t going to be Lucy, she said she wasn’t going to “bother him”.

It could be Paulo - for an increasingly serious scene
David - for some tension-relief, and for the fact that we miss him
The Pets - same as David, and to cause trouble
Or, although I highly doubt it, I suppose there’s a slim chance it’s Augustus. Him and Lucy were talking quite a bit around that report scene.

Tcj333 August 3, 2012, 8:23 AM EST.

Comment ID #224461

It could possibly be Lucy throwing that snowball at him. Not sure.. Just guessing about the next page of Chapter 71. Mike’s got his blue scarf back since Sandy thinks he looks better in blue. Sandy has the scarf Tess gave him.
Come on I hope I’ll be able to find out about this! I’m too curious about this chapter. I’ll find out on Monday to get to know this story better! Mad Lucy

Most likely not Lucy who threw the snowball. It’s probably someone who knows of the tension between the two, like Mike or something.

Kuro August 3, 2012, 8:34 AM EST.

Comment ID #224465

Yeah guys, I seriously doubt it’s Lucy. It seems to be, but it’s probably not considering she promised not to interact with Mike again. Could be Yashi, Paulo, one of Lucy’s ****** off brothers, or it might even be Daisy and Abbey out for a stroll.

Comment ID #224468

it seems like a “lucy” thing to do but it won’t be. She said she’d never disturb him again so why would she decide to throw a snowball at him? I do think it would be sweet to see them have a snowball fight, laughing and playing without the need of pointless words, just like how it use to be.

Kit August 3, 2012, 9:24 AM EST.

Comment ID #224469

Here are all the possibility’s for who threw that snowball:
Lucy. even though she said she won’t bother him.
Yashy. revenge for something?
Paulo. just trolling around.
David. same as Paulo’s.
These next ones are more for sh*ts and giggles now.
Sandy. she followed them back via clinging to bottom of vehicle.
Sue. she got bored.
Tess. trying to be friendly?
ZUN(maker of touhou project) trolling purposes.
Me. i got bored.
… This was pointless…

I think its paulo. No way would it be Lucy, we saw her condition last chapter.

Think a bit, guys. You saw the resistance Paulo was met with when he wanted to see Lucy. I doubt Lucy’s brother will let anyone in.

Mike shouldn’t have turn his back at talking to Lucy on behalf of his girlfreind so that they can get along and now instant karma with a snowball just happened. There is much mystery in this page as to whose house/what building it is and who threw the snowball. Guess we’ll have to wait until monday.

Comment ID #224479

Lucy sometimes decides to go somewhere mentally or physically before him, but Mike moves faster once he begins. Unless she is trying to not be seen by him, perhaps he should turn around if he doesn’t see her soon. Then again, she showed a capacity for potentially disturbing patience.

Mike: “Good morning! How long have you been waiting here?”
She had been standing near his house creepily.
Lucy: *Slightly creepy stare* “…A while.”

It was adorable.

Missed the snowball. It needed more Lucy. Haley makes little sense, though it could be Paulo.

Aha, it looks like Mike was almost not going to apologize “for Sandy”. That does seem to show a conflict in his love for her.

A for the snowball, it’s the most logical in my opinion.

It’s very obviously not Lucy who threw it. It’s kind of silly to belive it was. She’s trying to stay out of his life like he wants, not continue to try and be his friend.
Kind of dout it’s Paulo, but who knows. (I would actually enjoy seeing Paulo have a word with Mike, not fight, just talk) It’s more then likely one of his other friends.

Hm….. I’m gonna take a wild guess and say Augustus. He’s the only one Lucy’s been talking to lately and he obviously isn’t too thrilled over that fact. So since Daisy doesn’t even talk to him anymore why wouldn’t he try to prevent that from happening to Lucy and Mike?
