White fur and not Sandy, WHAT HERESY IS THIS? Also, I didn’t know goths could model. Maybe if you paid attention to what she said, you would know who the person was? Be more smarter!

Can understand that uncomfortable feeling when something that you know and want is about to come out, but just don’t know the exact time and your just waiting as your heart pumps quickly.

From what I see here, looks like Mike is gonna get more and more eager after each girl passing through the curtain that is not yet Sandy.

Just be a little more patient there, Mike. Lol.

Mike is a disapoint.
It’s a little funny how the model almost looks like older Lucy. I guessing there will be a lot of dummied out and alt. characters in the fashion show, just for fan service.

Just my honest opinion for the future. Sandy won’t be as pretty as Mike thought she would in person. May even lean toward her being ugly or mean to his friends for petty reasons. Just educated guesses.

Comment ID #218739

@Anonymous: you may be right, I’m a fashion designer and it’s not unheard of that Sandy would have to wear a wig or even change her hair for the show depending on if there was a theme or not. the eye color and the type of tail matches.

if that is Sandy and she sees Mikes reaction to the way she looks she is going to misunderstand and be heartbroken or mad.

Wait… No offense to mike or anything, but sandy is a friggin model, and manages to keep a long distance relationship with mike? I have a fealing she might… Just might… Have an other boyfriend.

Comment ID #218741

Saying this model is a goth is pretty lame, for two reasons:
1. Not everything black should be categorized as goth. It’s a style, not just a colour. It usually goes with lace, velvet, leather, depending on the substyle.
2. Models wear what the designer wants them to wear, they don’t really have a say in that. For all you know she wears frilly pink dresses with flowers in her free time.

Also, there are goth models, because someone has to model gothic styled clothing, right?

All that build up and wait over the weekend and we don’t get a jump cut straight to sandy’s entrance. Folks, methinks we just got trolled by Taeshi (please let someone do fan edit for this). But as for myself, that announcer is pretty hot, sooooo i can let a bit of trolling slide.

Nikita, your idea of goths is ridiculously retarded.

Nice outfit for the model, referenced or your own design? As for mike, I really hope he knows what he’s doing or what he wants. Things like this scares me when it comes to long distance relationship. Although it look like they’re getting along with sending letters and talking with one another, it’s meeting up after 6+ years that could turn for the better or worse. But something feels weird with mikexsandy as though as she’s might be looking for mike for other reasons, that or hurt his current relationship with his friends and maybe more on Lucy. He could always rebound back to Lucy. Catch. Shoots. 2 points! 8-D

… another no-action page. *dies*
This is reader abuse I tell you!!!! READER ABUSE! We like this comic too much to wait so long.

And the cat-model-girl sorta reminds me of a French Mime. I don’t know why, but that’s the first thing that came into my head when I saw her. I’m guessing it’s the white face with the heavy makeup.
You might wanna be careful with that, ‘cause it’s making her look more clownish than modelish at the moment. (And yes, I know that’s not a real word) ^^;
But still… lovely page.

Comment ID #218762

wow, what a rare occurrence! Thanatos actually said something right! apart from the “they should die” part…

uhm, maybe sandy will not look at mike because (I don’t know if it is so) models can’t distract themselves during the shows and mike will be offended, so their meeting in the backstage won’t be so lovey-dovey, they will discuss and sandy will run away crying >:D

“mikexsandy breakup” shippers, never give up.

(fogive me if my english vocabulary is awful)

p.s. I have nothing against sandy, I just want mike to get punished for what he did to lucy, and losing sandy is the worst thing that can happen to him, up to now (I mean the worst thing that can make him think about his actions. obviously, generally speaking, there are many worse things that can happen to him).

I seriously hate being all caught up with the series xD having to wait for a new page every other day forces me to have dreams of what will happen xD

Not that they come true ;P last night I dreamt that Sandy wanted to meet Mike BEFORE the show and when he went to see her after the show she was already gone. And he was angry with his mum and sister because he really did want to go in an hour early just in case….

The dream was like I was reading Taeshi’s art too, I am 21 for crying out loud! I shouldn’t care about cats in highschool! :x

At fashion shows, they usually do not announce the name of the model wearing a particular piece of clothing. There could be dozens of models. They’ll usually just do sets of outfits organized by designers or specific collections and announce those, then let the models do their thang.

Here is my depiction of the ending of this chapter. It is rather um, ahem, explicit so little childs be warned(That means you Molly). I think that Mike will pull out a gun, should Sandy several times in the chest , (Unbeknownst to him, Sandy is still alive) and then shoot himself in the head, because he wanted him and Sandy to go out Romeo and Juliet style. With Mike dead and Sandy in a two year long coma, Lucy and Paulo finally get together after Jasmine breaks up with Paulo for being somewhat of a slacker. After sandy awakes from her coma and finds out how it happened, she becomes a gangsta rapper.

@BeatBud I’m thinking it’s panty hose or some equivalent (which can’t be comfortable to wear considering her fur). Also, that isn’t Sandy. So I don’t see how those two thoughts are related.

Comment ID #218794

I’d laugh if every model turns out to look more and more like Lucy, and then the show ends with Sandy on the catwalk with her hair dyed white.

It would either torment him for what he said to Lucy, OR he would have problems keeping his anger back, ESPECIALLY around his beloved.

I was frustrated with the cliffhanger continuation, but only because of my eagerness. I can see this continuing on for a very long time as well. I hope somehow this chapter Mike realizes he was a ******* to the girl he helped become crippled and madly dependent.

If you seriously think someone should DIE because of a harmless opinion, the you should be isolated on an island in a concentration camp. Get over it.

@Naraka: as I stated before it could be Sandy (the eyes and tail are a match) Mike may not be able to recognizes her if they had to change her hair for the fashion show.

also, what would suck for Mike is, if that is the case and he can’t recognizes Sandy on the runway and he leaves thinking that she was a no show. (not that I want that to happen, I wanna see more background on Sandy) but just in case that is Sandy and Mike can tell it’s her, I wonder if he’ll start picturing Lucy every time he’s around or talking to Sandy. that would be poetic justice because he use to do that with Lucy.

She’s wearing pretty much only black. Also, if you look at the size of her face and the size of the eye liner, the eye liner is about an inch thick, that’s quite a bit. I also never said she wanted to kill herself, she just looks like she does, noting the messed up, slightly crazy hair and the ridiculously thick eye liner.

The announcer is only wearing a small amount of black. Also, Jasmine has no control over her fur color, so unless you believe black people are goths, Jasmine is not.

Despite the fact I hate his guts, Mike actually looks really good in this chapter.….wait i’m suppose to be paying attention to the girl aren’t I?

If you have nothing against sandy, then a break up should be the last thing you want, as a break up would destroy Sandy as well. From what i’ve seen Sandy’s getting stretched thin by her mother’s BS and her relationship with mike is her last semblance of happiness and normality, losing that she’ll be utterly destroyed. Is destroying two lives for revenge on one person’s mistake worth it?

Dick Cheney thinks you can do better than two people, and its not like he ever did it for revenge, or any reason for that matter.

Cheney was an idiotic douche, no question about it. we’re glad he’s out of the system and MOST of us are trying hard to erase his idiocy from our minds (of course there are certain idjits who think he and bush were in the right and still defend those morons)

Because as you are frustrated that i’m not there, you can watch all my hot older chick buddies walk back and forth in front of you. I know that won’t be bothersome for you in any way, or create feelings of unfaithfulness.

All I can picture in my mind is Paulo and David poping up randomly all chapter long. Providing there thoughts on every model. XD

You know would be really messed up? Sandy having to miss the show for whatever reason. :P

I’d assume he’s the same jerk who makes fun of every webcomic aside from those who make fart jokes. Mad Lucy
That “bad” webcomics wiki is just a website for whiny little kids who want to troll without seeming obvious. This makes the second webcomic I like whined about. Furious Abbey

I think what’s gonna happen is Mike will end up not liking Sandy so much any more; she’s probably changed a lot since they last actually met. He’ll probably stop liking her at some point, then realize that Lucy and everyone else was his real friends and try to go crawling back to them. And Lucy MIGHT even forgive him because of how she feels/felt.

I’m expecting something that involves Sandy’s parents. Remember them?

Oh, now I finally understand the name of this chapter… anyway, something tells me that Mike will embarrass himself and Sandy for being the loudest one cheering. I just see it coming.

I’d feel bad for the model if she saw Mike’s dissapointed face, lol. She’d probably wonder what’s wrong with her!

Just because some sude didn’t get what he want, doesn’t mean that his negative opinion should be posted on some site and be waved around with. Clearly, that guy isn’t loved by his parents. If people don’t like the comic, why bother being butthurt about it?
It’s not going to change anything.

I can’t believe that these people hate this comic and just had to write something about it.If I hated it I wouldn’t say anything about it since who cares if I did?They even complained that Taeshi stole a character from some shows that look like Lucy.Its pretty easy to make a white cat with blue eyes and a bow.Taeshi based some of the characters OFF OF real cats.

@Why you askin?
Eh, the resemblance was uncanny, I’ll give the guy that much, but I want to know why it even matters. Does anyone really care if a character resembles another from a nineties anime? Honestly, I don’t. This comic would be incredible regardless if Lucy resembled the character or not.

@Why you askin? and everyone else commenting on Devoit
Though I am, obviously a fan of this web-comic, the guy does, admittedly have a few points. The plot line is a bunch of love triangles, though slightly more complex than that, the plot is kind of predictable. Yashi is just a giant copyright infringement (despite the fact that the very concept of copyright makes me want to kill someone). Also, the story is, in a way a reflection of Taeshi’s life. Paulo is a gigantic ***** (even Taeshi, Lucy, Tessa, etc. has admitted it). His comments on Mike’s endless love spirals and his indecisive position on Lucy are true. Also, though Taeshi has placed an end date on the comic series, she could easily keep the comic going until the end of time. Though I disagree with his viewing of the art work, look at the first picture, the bus does appear to be going off into space.

Once again, I am a fan of this comic, would greatly enjoy it’s continuation and desperately hope my comment does not bring me into a bad light in the eyes of both Taeshi and other comic viewers. I just enjoy playing Devil’s Advocate.

@Nikita: Bullet point time again:

-So these women look like goths too? http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_CKqE9v3ZFeM/S3MkAyCToDI/ AAAAAAAAAWo/uZerw64HY5s/s400/ plus_size_little_black_dress.jpg

-It’s a drawing, so if a character is wearing eyeliner or any type of makeup, it has to be more emphasized than usual. It’s like with the eyes or the facial expressions, it’s all exagerations.

-The hair looks more stylized to me, like an (again, exaggerated) version of this: http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_30PRmkOl4ro/SRwtaOPjaaI/ AAAAAAAAEgY/BBDJUe1ND_Y/s1600/Programme-2.jpg

@person before me
The women in the first picture do not look like goths as they lack the slightly crazy demeanor that that one girl has. Your point about eye liner is understandable. Secondly, the woman in the second link DOES look like a goth. I might even go as far to say she looks like a female Ozzy Osbourne, just a little less crazy.

@Nikita: I guess I still don’t know where you’re getting crazy from. Maybe if one of her eyes was twitchy or her pupils were really small/in different directions, (especially if coupled with a larger joker-esque grin), that would probably say crazy to me. But I think we’ll just have to agree to disagree on this one.

I can’t believe I have to sit through 26 pages of Mike story before the next story starts… Mike loves Sandy and she’s a beautiful model girl. I KNOW ALREADY. blegh. :nope: :nope: :nope: :nope:

then come back in 8 and 1/2 weeks, that should be how long 26 pages updated 3 times a week should take to pass through.

Relax Mike, she’ll come out eventually…after a few more models or so. :/

@Strider I would still consider that sitting through it. “It” being the pronoun to replace “the time period this chapter will take”.

in fact, if they would break up, I would be sorry for sandy but not for mike (still, I don’t think sandy would just disappear from the comic to live her unhappy life with no hopes of changing it).

Seriously, anyone who goes to that website for anything substantial is in for a shock. The entire website is designed to make fun of things - it’s like taking Encyclopedia Dramatica seriously. They’re just a bunch of whiny trolls.

I didn’t say it would make sandy disappear from the comic, i just meant it would probably be the straw that broke the camel’s back. Their are better ways to get revenge on mike outside of a breakup, unless it’s a break up initiated by sandy because she has disliked what mike has become, which i don’t foresee in the near future. So if you want payback on mike there are other ways to achieve the objective that won’t cause a “civilian casualty”.

Thank you Veronica (aka Taeshi) for the birthday wishes, and I just want to say, ever since I came across BSCB 3 months ago Ive been hooked, and its one of the most entertaining webcomics I’ve found to date, as well as one of the most frequently updated. (Even though its so good that even with three updates a week seems like each one takes forever to come) Keep up the good work!!! :D
