Oh ****!
Well, Taeshi said she forgot about him. Who hasn’t been mentioned in a while? Well, Zachary and Alejandro, that is, and it sure as hell isn’t Zach.
Either that or she’s talking about Augustus and that’s Lucy about to jump off the roof. We shall see.
If it is Lucy, and she jumps, Augustus will probably catch her, because he is at heart, a good person. Then Lucy will be all like, “Ohh Augustus, you saved me! I love you!” And then he’ll be like, “But I love Daisy and not you, you know that.” And then she’ll jump off the roof again and there will be no one there to do anything. And then she’ll be dead, and Mike wont care, and Paulo will probably beat the crap out of him for that, and then he’ll fall in love with Daisy and duel Abbey to the death.

That better not be Lucy. You cannot be serious right now :|. I must be having stress induced hallucinations again… damn now I have to go to sleep and check again tomorrow morning because there is no way that there is someone on that building that’s about to jump off. Hopefully it is David spying on Augustus yes that is it please let that be it. :unsure: We all know how David has the ability to teleport to the top of any building :(.

I don’t think I’ve seen such a look of surprise on him before. Doubt it’s Lucy though, she was with her brothers and mum a sec ago. I doubt her mum would even allow her out the house anyway, she was already worried about Samm being out.

I think that’s Mad Lucy but Its likely we’re being tricked by how much we think of her as “depressed” right now, last I saw, she seems more dead inside and uncaring, for all we know that could be :O. Also either way I doubt whoever it is, is thinking about suicide D:, more likely they’re just thinking, people do that, if they live in an apartment and have roof access they may go there to think.

But lets see what ;) plans to do, hes a nice guy, just looks like he isn’t.

Wait if Augustus saves Lucy and they end up together then who will Paulo go out with once he tells Jasmine the truth and then breaks up with her? :O Paulo is going to end up alone for awhile isn’t he? I come up with questions when i’m nervous. for example, Why couldn’t Paulo be her knight in shining armor :question:?

Come on Lucy you have so much to live for like… uh your family( Mad Lucy: I just finished talking to them and that’s why I’m here) um you’re too young to throw the rest of you life away( Mad Lucy: what life you mean my lonely existence) uhh Zachary is going to show up and make things better( Mad Lucy: when , before or after I jump). Paulo is about to dump his girlfriend for you( Mad Lucy: that is supposed to make me better how?) oh I know what about the play( Mad Lucy: glad to know where your priorities are) sheesh i’m just trying to stop you from making a big mistake that I almost made ( Mad Lucy: well you should have done it). Ouch.

Wow I can’t of any other reasons for her to not jump is my mind that negative? … Don’t answer that -_-. I’m the worst negotiator ever ;_;. She better be just thinking. I like to think thoughts too but not all of them are good.

I betchya it’s not Lucy. Last I saw, she was talking with her family.

And if it is Lucy, she’s most likely done talking to her family and is contemplating what they’ve said. I really don’t think Lucy is suicidal at this point. I just don’t think so. :/

And if she is? Auggie, verbally slap some sense into her again, as you have done before. Because we know you care…due to them being part of some greater plan. n_n I think.

The hint of PauloxLucy is making me squeal like a little girl, because since the chapter where Luce told everyone Paulo was her first crush I’ve shipped them. Though AugustusxLucy is still my OTP, I just sadgasgasgasdg
But I know PxL is more likely while AxL is close to impossible. Sigh.

I still don’t think that shadow is Luce. And if it was, I don’t think she’s about to jump. In fact, I don’t think anyone’s about to jump. Probably something else, but whatever it is I can’t figure out who it could be.
Bah, I’ll go with David. Haven’t seen much of him yet (‘cept briefly at Tess’ party), and if Taeshi keeps her word and this IS to be a David chapter.. Well then. Let’s just wait and see.

I’m having doubts that it’s Lucy, but if it is, I feel like it’s not her deciding to jump. At least I would hope not? I thought we were past all that…or maybe I just haven’t been paying very well attention to how she’s feeling…Ah…anyways, I really like how you portrayed his surprise. Gives a good “oh no, what now?” feeling.

@Just-a-Lurker: and I secretly wish for that shadow to be a fan character… or Alejandro either way I won’t be getting much sleep tonight.

@Yaschiri: That’s Augustus can’t let anything bad happen to Lucy yet his boss (Alejandro) has first dibs. That shadowy plan will be set in motion in a few months(excellent ;))

8-D: Cool! What if Jasmine and Augustus met up and fell in love? Talk about crack pairing.

In all seriousness I’m actually excited about who the silhouette is. I can only think of Lucy and Daisy off the top of my head, but they both seem unlikely at this point in the story so I have no idea.

Comment ID #235054

I’m almost certain that’s Lucy. I can see the bow. If not it’s Amaya because she’s the only other cat (that I can remember) with a bow around their neck, and we haven’t seen Auggie or Amaya, Amaya more so, in a while.
I don’t think whoever is up there is going to jump, I think they’re there to just escape and relax for a bit.

Comment ID #235056

@Rioo: if whoever was up there did jump we would have our resident anti-hero to decide if they lived or not(come on he is final fantasy cat he can save anyone if he wants to ;)).

@Defutz: None of them? Well since I am trying to be optimistic I will give them the benefit of the doubt. Also if I pretend that person will fly away it will help me go to sleep better. I Remember a certain tsundere that needed to be talked out of “ending it” you’re smart enough to figure what it is and who i’m talking about right? Oh looky here we have the person that talked her out of it maybe he can talk her out of this situation. Yay for speculation. Also I will get some of that sleep I was talking about earlier. Night-night.

Ok, let’s rule people out:

Not Paulo; at party.
Not Tess; likewise.
Not FFC; unless there’s Time Travel afoot.
Not Mike; at the party.
Not Sue; Party.
Not Amaya/mute girl who’s name I’ve forgotten; Party.
Not Bitchy and McTagalong; Party
Not Daisy; Party.
Not Abby; Party.
Not Molly; currently playing Connect 4.
That’s everyone accounted for except for McCain. So, it’s either McCain, a random passerby, or a puff of smoke.

Curtisimo December 31, 2012, 1:33 AM EST.

Comment ID #235058

I doubt that’s Lucy, and if it is, I don’t believe she’d be jumping. She was just surrounded by her family. If she tried to run away, surely at least Sam would be able to stop her. If she did get away, with how worried they are about her, she’d have to really appear okay, and sell that to them.

If it is suicidal Lucy though, and Augustus is the only one to save her, leading into a strange romance that leaves Paulo heartbroken and girlfriend-less, how many fans would be able to see past disappointment to feel grateful that Lucy was saved at all? It hasn’t happened yet, but if it does… geez. No character should have to go down with anyone’s ship.

Guys, girls, everyone, maybe it’s just someone sight seeing? Who says it has to be someone jumping off a roof? Maybe it’s just some other loner like Auggie who’s prone to wander around places? Maybe it’s just someone who wants to be alone? Maybe it’s a ninja planning to attack him? Hell, maybe it’s freakin’ Batman, Spiderman, or Superman, who knows?
Last we saw Lucy she was with her family, not on top an x-story tall building. It also looked like she had something to discuss with her family and knowing how she is with issues, it could take a while to talk out.
As for Auggie: that’s right, kill’em all with your snowball of wound up and suppressed hatred…or at least marginally damage the wall with it.
Btw, panel one is cute in it’s own way to me (I’m not a freak, don’t judge!) Mad Lucy

Bittersweet Candy Bowl: shipping comes standard with every comic…

It does seem like every other page there’s a new ship to cheer for. Its like watching a boating race…

“And out of the gate we have LucyxMike making a strong entrance, but what’s that?? Ooh! It got shot with a canon from MikexSandy! It’s going down fast! LucyxPaulo had a slow start. It seems to be gaining momentum, but its closely being followed by LucyxAugustus. Meanwhile, DaisyxAbbie seems to be sailing along smoothly, but is facing threats by close canon fire by DaisyxAugustus. Still anyone’s race, folks!”

And now we’re back to Augustus. I wonder who is on the roof. It looks like Lucy, but that I’m not sure. I’ll be surprised if it is her and I would ask ‘why is she up there?’ Well, who ever is up there, why is he/she up there in the first place?

Keyblade Dragon December 31, 2012, 9:30 AM EST.

Comment ID #235091

It’s subtle but the dot has some shading to it, implying back to Augustus, ears that are down and a bow. Thing is, it seems to fit with the paper texture.

Putting the fact that I’m a bit ashamed to have been that analytical, it’ll be interesting how this plays out. I really doubt AugustusXLucy, becuse I don’t see how saving her would make him interested. It could, however, make her interested in him but even that’s a long shot. If he did save her, she’d probably get angry and cry, because the idea of jumping off a building isn’t exactly to come out living.
But I don’t really think she’ll jump anyway.

-facepalm- Why does everyone automatically assume the worst =I

Maybe it IS someone on the roof, but whoever they are is just….gazing out into the horizon.

Besides. Lucy is made of much stronger stuff than that. If she were suicidal, she would have been cutting herself and then would have ended awhile ago. No. Lucy is a fighter.

If anyone is suicidal, it would be someone who we wouldn’t expect…..like Jasmine, Tess, Daisy, or even Sue. =/

@ Every one

I believe that’s the school building, same as in disaster dominoes.

And its called 10 seconds from midnight. Meaning this part of the story might be way after the party, I see 3 time zones in this story.

Augusts,Tesses party,& Lucy family. So far that’s all.

All 3 story’s or scenes w/e will collide in some point of time.
Hince now might be way after the party. Lucys family speaking or talking about her might be days or hours before the party, Tess party might be the in between lucys family and august even tho augustes story was started first.

break it down.

August shown first is really scene 3

Tess party is really scene 2

Lucys family is really scene 1

so far its from 3 to 2 then 1 then 3 next will be 2 then prolly back to 1 and so forth.

i duno its how i break it down, if i made some kind of story, it be twisted and confusing. lots of cliff hangers and drama as such.

i really hope that this comic doesn’t wind up with one of those “in the end nobody gets what they really want, but they’re still ok” morals… i’m kind of getting that vibe, for some reason, these last few chapters… ):

@Blank On Purpose

Wait you think it could be Superman? D= DONT JUMP SUPER- oh wait he couldnt top himself off like that anyway whats to worry about ;D

Doubt it’ll be Lucy, while I gotta say i am a bit of a fan to FFC, I doubt they’ll meet up this easily, don’t know who it could be tho that’s quite a mystery up there to be sure!

I really doubt it’s Lucy, unless her family talk is all done. Perhaps a random person who Augustus is going to save? That’s my guess. :O

On another note, I love the way Augustus’s face is drawn in the second to last panel :love:

Looking forward to see how it works out. And wouldn’t be a twist if Auggie’s motivations weren’t as selfish as we think? ;)

We’ll find out!

Its the next day, and by the Look on his face I think he knows who it is. Lucy and family where talking during night about 6:00pm there time. Its the next day. It probably is Lucy who else walks around with there head lowered and a BIG RIBBON ON THEIR NECK! I mean come on. Its either Lucy with her back to us or she is holding her pets… And people that is at least 5 stories high if he caught Lucy his arms would probably break or his knees give out. The snow is softer than a person’s arms.
I ****EN called it scene changed!

I image this is how it went.
Family:”You know Lucy…*says something hurtful but didn’t mean it to be*” *with hopeful but weak smiles*
Lucy: *storms out eyes streaming down here face*
Family: what?
Lucy: *runs to tall building* This is what you wanted right Mike
Augustus:”Take that stupid building”
Lucy:*walks toward edge* Merry Christmas Mike.*walks off edge*
Augustus:”Who the hell-“*hit by snow from shockwave* “What the hell…. oh ****
Lucy:…*lifeless with a note in one hand* (and like Taeshi, I am making you wait 1 week to see what it is XD, I am joking we love you Taeshi <3)<~~~ I seriously doubt that really happened or would, but it could happen.

I can imagine something similar to this going through her head:http://taeshidiary.tumblr.com/post/14284021278 That is if that is Lucy.

Umm then again. Well I say its Lucy on the building because who the **** else could it be good olde rape cat? Augustus is shocked to see who it is. Its probably Mike trying to get a signal to call Sandy most likely. :/

I am pretty sure that it is just a chimney and Augustus is surprised where he ended up after his angst filled walk.

There’s only a couple people we haven’t seen in this chapter yet, and judging from the general shape of that head (if it’s a head) my best guess is that it’s David being a lovable idiot on the roof.

At the end of the day, the comic without Lucy is just plain silly. If that is her she will be fine.

Seriously, would want to continue reading about Jerkface Mike and Simpleton Sandy?

Paulo would go crazy cause he never told her, Jess would be devastated, Jamine would be single after paulo’s emotions come out.

It’d just be a stupid way to spur drama, and none of it will go anywhere.

Unless Lucy jumped and ended up sick and on life support in the hospital, then it may have an eventually point (whether she died later or not).

But if Taeshi makes Lucy die outright, here, that’d be stupid.

Actually new thought. Ten bucks says it’s David’s flowergirl.

And everyone hears a girl committed suicide and think of Lucy who isn’t there at the party. Insert crying and realizations, Mike actually feeling like an ******* like he should with some needed remorse, and then Lucy is still with her family, and later shows up at the party.

Everyone is in tears and welcomes her back and then she realizes how many people care about her.

BAM! And that’s how you tie up loose ends.

So Augustus’ poncho really isn’t pink, is it? It’s black. Unlike Dummy’s interpretation. Glad I FINALLY know what color it is
Although, I probably would have seen it in the first page of this chapter, wouldn’t I?
Let me see if i could-
Yep. I could. And probably did.
Well everyone, HAPPY NEW YEAR! :D
bittersweetcandybowl.com is the first website I’ve been on this year! ;)
I haven’t been online since LAST YEAR! :O
But I wouldn’t want it any other way, Taeshi! ;)
Although I know it is 4:13 pm in Australia right now, so, I’m a little late! :smirk:
Well I’m from New York so it’s okay!
Oh, now it’s 4:14 pm. Oh well!
Once again, HAPPY NEW YEAR! :D
I’m off to watch some of my FAVORITE SHOW-
Guess what it is?
Woah, I’m getting a little ahead of myself there.
This message is getting preeeetty looooong. :smirk:
So everyone, I’m off!
See you all soon!
And I gotta start posting stuff on Candybouru.
I’ll make that one of my MANY New Year’s Resolutions.
HAPPY NEW YEAR and good night! :)
(Unless I comment on Candybouru stuff, which I probably will before Doctor Who.)
Oh, and I’ve spent so long on this comment that now it’s 4:21 pm in Australia.
Over 10 minutes on this ONE COMMENT.
Next time it won’t be so long! :P
Now it’s 4:22 pm in Australia.
Now it’s 4:23 pm. Geez, Mimi, cut it out, will you?
Okay, Mimi’s conscience! I will! XD

@Everyone: Happy New Years! May you enjoy a wonderful year filled with drama, comedy, and tears of joy I know I will. Bittersweet Candy Bowl the best source of interesting drama ever created. If you find a story that is more interesting (I doubt it :/) then turn it into a comic and I will become your first fan :D. Seriously how many readers does BCB actually have like 500 maybe more if you count the silent types, pretty impressive.

@Yaschiri: I’m looking forward to solving this mystery as well so I will wait patiently until the mystery is solved. Lots of mysteries in this page though: Who is on the roof? What are they doing up there in this weather? What are they planning to do (something sinister or something stupid)? All these questions and more will be answered sometime this month 8-).

@Someone: You had me until you said “Lifeless with a note in one hand” you clearly meant to say “FAINTED with a note in one hand.” Lucy won’t be taken down that easily she has survived worse than a fall into a pile of snow. Besides CATS ALWAYS LAND ON THEIR FEET! Worst case scenario Lucy gets sent to the hospital for an injury and nothing that requires life support. This isn’t a soap opera (last time I checked anyway). Also if it is Mike up there trying to call his beloved Sandy i’ll be disappointed because Mike won’t be able to see the break up between Paulo and Jasmine.

@I_Love_Lucy: What if it is Lucy up there and what if Augustus convinces her not to jump then what happens? Lucy will still realize that somebody cares about her and the others won’t know about it. As an added bonus Lucy won’ have to go to the hospital :x. For some reason Amaya seems like she could be a nurse. I’m not sure why :unsure:.

@Zany: That’s right Lucy could jump do a flip and land on her feet in the snow and be just like a ninja cat surrounded by snowflakes. Beautiful :)

Wonder if whoever is up there will tell Augustus to go be awesome someplace else or in other words “Go Away” actually I think “Leave” works just fine ;) He will still say “No”

@HIC: I think we should keep Final Fantasy Cat away from the Flower Girl, don’t you?

I’m thinking Jasmine. She has a neckerchief tied to one side that might look like a bow from this distance, assuming that’s intentional anyway. We saw Amaya and Jessica (whose pigtails might look similar at range) at the party, and Lucy with her family. While we’re getting some minor time skips (maybe; it’s possible Augustus lives across the street from that building, I suppose), it just seems likely to be one of those we haven’t seen yet.

EDIT: Regarding jumping: see number 1 (possibly NSFW, it’s Cracked.com).

Ok, completly off topic, but I just got my Jess charm in the mail today and am confounded as to what shes doing. Is she eating a sandwhich? Is she licking a salt block? It makes no sense!

I really don’t think it’s Lucy up there.
But part of me hopes I’m wrong just so it can lead to some (in my opinion) much needed Lucy/Augustus interaction.

I love Lucy and Augustus together. Paulo and Lucy comes at a very close second. But I always think that Augustus could really help knock some much needed sense into Lucy’s noggin’ and she could ultimately give him the love and devotion he so clearly needs. *cross fingers*

…And we skip back to Augustus. Poor kid looks really depressed. I’m really lucky to say that I don’t have parents that drink, so I can’t speak for him, but it must really suck that-

Who the F*** is on that roof?! It’s gotta be thirty below up there!
