My heart just broke into pieces…

I seriously hope something happens eventually that leads to Mike being exposed. Maybe I’m just severely bitter because I’ve had something like this happen before personally, but that want is still there no matter how much I’d prefer to just stay neutral regarding Mike and Lucy.

And yes, I understand that Lucy abused Mike before, and Mike abused her emotionally and verbally after, but I just want someone to finally understand the real pain between these two and step up to be the person Lucy REALLY needs.

Sooo…, does Tessa suddenly live in the middle of a pine forest Also, is it sunny at midnight?
Either way, this is quite depressing. He waited for Lucy that entire night, only to find that she would never come. I wonder, if he had known that she wasn’t coming, if he would have handled the situation differently? What would Lucy even say if he told her he loved her? She’s only been talked to sincerely about that kind of stuff once, so I don’t know how she’d handle it. In a public place, not well.

Don’t worry Paulo you can still fight Abbey to the death 8-D. But seriously this is sad, Paulo was waiting this entire time for Lucy and she was a no show. Reminds me of all the times Mike was waiting for Sandy and she didn’t show up :(. Looks like time and distance is the enemy of all young relationships :x.

@ Skygaze
We call that schizophrenia. I would get that checked.

@ Someone
No one can understand what happened. Both Lucy and Mike refuse to tell anyone. Lucy because she’s too much of an introvert and Mike because he has too much pride to admit he’s done anything wrong. If the truth is ever to get out, something drastic will have to happen.

The song for today is Far Away by Tyga ft. Chris Richardson http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CsO9bn6kAAI I used a lyric video and I think if fits perfectly. Don’t watch the actual video unless you feel like crying ._..
“Walk a thousand miles just to see her(see her) but she’ far far away
And i’d do anything just to see her face” and that is just how it starts ;_;.

It’s a good thing, Paulo, even if you don’t know it. Lucy’s still broken, and she’d break you too if she showed up all dead-eyed and you confessed. Augustus’ relatively detached demeanor is the perfect thing to help her recover. When she’s better and back to the group, then you might have a chance.

Hang in there~ #^_^#

Maybe another time!? It better be tomorrow and to be clear, I’m talking about him going to tell Lucy that he loves her (I really don’t think Jazz is sticking to his mind at this moment).
The characters in this comic have a tendency to put things off a lot, especially when they psych themselves out for it, only to put their foot back in the door the moment they step out; it kills me!
“I’m gonna go tell her I love her!”, “I’m gonna go teach that guy a lesson!”, “I’m gonna go get a cupcake!”, and I’m sitting here going “Yeah, yeah, yeah! Do it!”—and then they hesitate and all that momentum building up goes flat makes me yell “What!? No! Go get that cupcake!”
Then they stew for pages and pages, until something explodes or it suddenly just defuses, then they stew and stew; it just makes me want to get up and punch the nearest face!
Honestly though, I love how this comic has progressed in art style, character development, and story development. The drama kills me, but it leads me on to what I want: a happy conclusion!

@Skygaze: If it was Daisy Paulo would have already gone to her and told her how he feels, she is at this party too you know. Lucy is his only love interest that is not at this party right now(besides Molly of course) so who do you think he would be thinking about while looking away from the party?

@Someone: That is why we have Augustus who she has talk to about all of this more than she did with her family. She may not trust him a lot but she trusts more than she trusts her family right now, possibly more than any of her friends right now. We have established that Lucy is not Augustus’ type. She actually talked to him about some pretty serious stuff back in the library, sure he was harsh about it but he gave great advice… in his own way. Lucy’s concept of friendship was pretty much wrecked by Mike so anybody that is trying to help and keeping his distance is a plus. Lucy does not need another shoulder to cry on what see needs is somebody that will let her “deal with it” on her own or help snap her out of it. A confused lover boy is not what she needs at the moment, maybe in a more positive future. For now Paulo will have to learn what it is like to be alone, maybe then he will know how Lucy feels.

Edit: I’m not trying to make Paulo suffer I just want Lucy to be free of her dependency before she starts dating anybody. Augustus just seems like he has the potential to help Lucy break free from her dependency even if it means watching over her from a distance.

You know, regarding to who will spill the truth on what happened between Mike and Lucy, there is still that play they’re rehearsing. I’m not sure what will happen next after this chapter ends, but we’re gonna get to that play chapter eventually right? I’m not sure how, or when it will happen, but I’m MOST POSITIVELY CERTAIN that is the chapter that everything will be spilled, RIGHT THERE, where the birth of drama all began. And then we can all say. “Wow, how ironic.” 8-D

Man, I really wish Taeshi would just drop the drama bomb already. (keeping the Lucy-Mike cenario from the rest of the cast.)

At one point I wanted this to happen just so Mike could get the 411 from Paulo (and maybe others) about how he handled things like an ***, but now he’s off in his little podunk universe of “Sandy”… and, well, it just doesn’t seem like it would have a big impact with the story’s current state. [Most likely he’d just go back to his room, convince himself everyone else is being overly-sensitive and have an hour long conversation with his girlfriend.]

What I am really ready to see is Lucy getting some much needed support from the rest of the cast, and they really cant do that if they’re in the dark about everything that happened during “December”. I mean Augustus is great and all and he has potential to really help Lucy, but he’s only one person. I think she needs a LOT of moral support to climb out of the sink-hole.

Next morning: Paulo tries Lucy’s hose again. If he does that, the question will be WHO answers the door this time. I’m kinda hopping its Lucy-mama. I want to see them interact for some reason (Paulo shedding some light on current events he’s aware of to Lucy’s family aside).

Man, poor Paulo, he’s entirely oblivious to the possible future, specially involving Lucy :(

I had a bad dream last night. It was the last page of the comic, and it was Lucy, she had jumped and was at the bottom all bleah and dead and avrruqghjufvn. And that was it. I am so hoping it’s just me, not a prediction that’s accurate. ),:

@Dudeler: “All this is assuming that Mike’s secret gets let out before he has a chance to apologize to Lucy. I know Mike will apologize but whether it is alone with Lucy or in front of a huge crowd is still up for debate. I hope for during the play in front of all their friends and classmates, but I will most likely adore how it actually happens a lot more.” This was one of my posts from Jan. 24(well a piece of it anyways). I am showing to you to show that you are not alone in your way of thinking 8-).

@Chinatsu: Augustus will just be the beginning others will find out about what happened and they will join team Lucy. It is only a matter of time ;). Seriously when Jessica finds out what happened, Mike will have to run for his life or hope that Paulo doesn’t decide to join the battle. Actually there would be more than just those three so Mike won’t have many escape routes only one that I can think of ( Mad Lucy).

@TheRealSomeone: I will make sure to let you know what I think after I read it :).

@Yaschiri: You’ll probably hate me for saying this, but what makes you so sure that Lucy will end up with somebody by the time BCB is over? What if Lucy decides she doesn’t want anybody around her anymore? Or what if something bad happens? Maybe it is the pessimist in me trying to escape, if that is the case then ignore my rambling. Well actually there is some good news in Lucy not wanting a man in her life… Jessica will finally get a chance with her true love :smirk:.

@PastaCatz: Taeshi does not believe in animal cruelty so what you just described won’t happen… o.o unless it was in an incentive page D:. *deep breaths* Nah, it definitely won’t happen. Lucy will find the strength to keep moving on just like the rest of us :).

@supertails19, it is true Mike hasn’t got a chance to apologize to Lucy yet. He tried one time, but it just wasn’t the right time, and it seemed like he was only doing it as a favor for Sandy without actually thinking how much he actually hurt Lucy.

I understand in the story it has only been a couple days since he made that attempt, but it’s the holidays, there can be lots of stuff going on that will divert Mike’s attention, and maybe even revert to how he was before he talked to Sandy in person. And if he happens to be what @Nikita described, there can be no doubt that things will get drastic, and there will be blood to be shed.

i didnt like this chapter. it was just, wonky. it started with all that potential lucy/aug drama and quickly went elsewhere to the breakup. i think the breakup should have been the only bit, and lucy/aug watching fireworks on the rooftop as an epilogue chapter.

@Nikita - That’s the thing… I wouldn’t mind the drastic at all. This comic is known for /gasp factor, and if **** were to hit the fan, it would have us all in a riot until the next update (not like it hasn’t happened before, but even though it drives us insane, we love it anyways)

@supertails19 - As much as I don’t want to agree with you that she needs time and shouldn’t get together with Paulo (that is, of course, only if that’s the direction Taeshi intended the comic to go, purely speculation) until she does some legit soul searching, you’re 100% correct, in my opinion.

Random Thought - Am I the only one still insanely curious about what exactly went down at Lucy’s house with her two siblings and mother that drove her up to the rooftop to begin with? It’s like an itch that I can’t scratch. I wanna knooooooow.

Like, would it be like one of those crappy movies where you switch from the main drama and then go to the two most unlikeley couples that you sorta shipped the whole time making out? Geez. Then, @Drama (From the last page), You will come back.

Comment ID #238369

@Dudeler: It is true that Mike hasn’t had many opportunities to apologize yet and the only one I can think of was kind of forced so he had no time to think of what he had done. Mike probably has no idea how much Lucy has suffered so far and he won’t until he sees her again. The problem is that Mike can’t be the one to go to her as long as she is in her house(too many obstacles :/) and if they meet up at school with people around, then drama is guaranteed.

A resolution could occur in a situation that involves being surrounded by a lot of people, but others can contribute in that scenario and knowing Paulo he would most likely contribute his fist along with some strong words… unless Mike and Lucy had their conversation during a play and everybody assumes it is part of the show, then even if Paulo or the rest of the group wanted to interrupt they couldn’t :x.

@Spiritwolf15x: If Augustus was going to lock her out in the cold it would be on purpose as a twisted joke and then he would claim it was an accident. At least she is focused on something else now ;).

@NotSomeoneButSomeone: I didn’t realize that fireworks could occur during a snowstorm. Well now I know more about fireworks :smirk:.

@MonsieurWTF: Augustus is still in the building that Lucy is on top of and Daisy is still at the party with the others. Maybe you meant to say next chapter instead of next page and even then it is a little unlikely :(.

@Someone: So I am not the only one thinking about the conversation Lucy had with her family :love:. Also, soul searching- so that’s the term I was looking for when Lucy was in the hallway reviewing past events in her life(Starting Over: Story Summary).

@Alaystus: LucyXAugustus would only happen as friends and nothing more. If Augustus tries to do anything more(even a kiss) then all trust will be blown away. Lucy knows Augustus can’t be trusted, but so far Augustus is acting like the only one she can trust(he is not after her for her looks, he is giving her the space she wants, and he is letting her make decisions without treating her like a baby).

If you hate the idea of Augustus being a friend to Lucy(even if it’s probably temporary) then you will probably have to ignore what I say for a while o_o. It’s either have Augustus be her ally or have him be her enemy. I don’t know about you but I really don’t want Augustus or Alejandro setting up a trap for Lucy anytime soon so i’m going to be optimistic and pick the first one :unsure:.

@Miaaa: We can worry about that in 1 or 2 chapters from now Mad Lucy :unsure:.

Comment ID #238370

@melancholia: Tess will find a nice boyfriend in college, Jasmine can find somebody else that will treat her the way she deserves to be treated, Rachel would only use Paulo as a fling since she is looking to settle down and have a family sometime in the future(she needs to have her puppies and it is not possible with another cat), and Lucy is in no condition to go into a new relationship yet… unless she somehow managed to forget about Back and Forth, Mike and her dependency/abandonment issue all while Paulo was waiting for her at the party :nope:.

There is an old saying I have for anybody that expects PauloXLucy to happen instantly I think it goes: “Rome wasn’t built in a day.” I think it goes well with anybody that was expecting Mike to apologize right away or anybody that think Augustus and Lucy are making out right now. Here’s a few more for anybody getting impatient: “Patience is a virtue” or “Good things come to those who wait” I think the last one only applies to certain situations… like waiting for a comic to update(the emotions I feel when I read this comic or try to imagine what happens next make it all worth it :)). Paulo on the other hand needs to do something other than wait for this snowstorm to pass 8-).

@DeathofInk: Maybe it is because Paulo was the only one to get past Lily and he only got past because of Yashy and he didn’t get a chance to say anything to Lucy until she called him. Did you forget about Jordan the doorman a.k.a. Lucy’s personal bouncer/bodyguard?

My point is even if the the whole cast came to cheer Lucy up they would be sent away one by one… unless they showed up in a big group and even then there is no guarantee that it won’t end up making her feel worse when she sees Mike is there. Even if Mike was there to apologize she wouldn’t take the risk :(.

This will probably sound crazy to you but Mike was not the reason why Lucy found herself a rooftop and stood dangerously close to the edge. If it was 100% Mike’s fault she’d have done it sometime in the 3 weeks since the “I hate you” speech happened. It’s a big part of the reason she is on a rooftop, but not completely. I think it has more to do with her family treating her like a baby… choosing who she shouldn’t see, telling her what she should do, and the last straw was forcing her into a situation she wants no part of without asking her about it or giving her an option.

I know, I know they were worried about her and I give them credit for trying, but the moment anybody tries taking away a teenager’s freedom(even if it is just the freedom to choose what happens next) they will regret it. When the teenager has trust issues as well and already feels like there is nothing left to lose then… there is a problem that needs to be resolved soon or else ;__;.

@TheRealSomeone(akaSomeone: Imagine if the last page was Lucy staring at a forest off to the distance, just like Paulo is, but she then walks away. Oh the symbolism #^_^#.

@Everyone: Before anyone says anything about the last one… I know it probably won’t happen, but I can still dream… feel free to debate about anything with me it is more than welcome :).

Also, don’t worry that “don’t worry Paulo, you’ll see Molly again soon” comment was supposed to be a joke so don’t take it too seriously.

@Mightyena: I’m pretty sure the reason why it looks so white is because of all the snow and the fact that Paulo was probably here for a while… or most likely there is a light on outside :x.

@supertails19 You misunderstood me: I do not hate Augustus, nor do I even dislike him. I am just tired of people being AugustusxLucy. I mean, it’s people’s right to say whatever they want, but seriously - face the facts. I totally agree that if Lucy would calm down and maybe talk to Augustus about her problems, he’d listen and help as best he could. However, I still think there is a little tension between them. Also, I love Augustus, because of the name, (sounds German, I like Germany. [#germanyFTW]) and his garb is pretty flippin’ sweet too.

P.S. : Ermagerd! Somebody replied to me! And the Duke of Comments, of all people! My purpose has been fufilled! Temporarily!

Taeshi, I know you have the main plot set in stone, but if you add an additional side-story I would really love to see Molly with a crush on someone, or someone with a crush on Molly, and Abby’s involvement in either scenario

I hope Lucy doesn’t kill herself and Paulo has regrets for not going to tell her/ might have saved her etc.

@supertails19 A snow storm never stopped me from shooting off fireworks before, why would it stop Lucy?

Mike X Sandy -
Too clean. Mike needs to stop living in the past and see that Sandy is only dropping bits of sugar to have him drag on after her and fawn all over her. He needs a good beating and Lucy needs to give it because that is their draw to each other. If Lucy really wanted to hurt him all the time she wouldn’t have latched on like she did.
Sandy needs to get her head out of the clouds (or out of her mom’s a**) and take control of her own life. She only has Mike twisted around her fingers because he is her only control in life. She also had Mike get made at Lucy manly because Lucy could also influence him and she didn’t like that. She only said to Mike “I didn’t mean for you to stop being friends, just that she doesn’t need to hurt you” is just to show in Mikes eyes as being an Angel. Mainly I cannot trust her. Mike looks lost when he hasn’t had any contact with her and when he does he lashes out at anyone, even family members.

Aggie X Lucy -
WILL NEVER HAPPEN!!! Augustus has tried to hurt someone Lucy knows. She cannot see it but he has a connection to Mike’s, Lucy’s and Paulo’s past. He can only serve as a distraction nothing more.

Paulo X Lucy -
Paulo can try as hard as he can but Lucy would never let him get close. After seeing Lucy when they where young he tried to go after her by changing himself (no-one can love a person who has no idea who he really is) look where that got him. Then after Lucy does get close to him and see starts to trust him he goes an has sex with two other girls and starts dating another. She feels rejected but still will be him friend but no more.

Mike X Lucy -
Their relationship is one mixed with love and hate. They both love each other and yet deny this when the other brings it forward. They hate each other because their interactions with each other (and others outside of the two of them) bring forth the flow of emotions they are not use to and cannot handle it. These actions have force them apart, but after some time to grow up, these same actions will bring them together. Their relationship may look like it’s on the rocks but this will only forge a stronger bond with them and it won’t be just her depending on him but flows both ways. It all comes down to this:
Mike - Needs an a** kicking, from both Lucy and his friends. Sometimes tough-love is the best friendship.
Lucy - Needs an emotional a** kicking., from Mike and friends. Shattering the emotional shell and being there to help her stand tall will show her that she is not alone.
Friends - Needs to see the emotional storm that has hit everyone. If they trust each other they can then face what is coming up.
Augustus - Needs to pick sides. He cannot play for both teams and come out whole. It will ether come to an emotional hit (Daisy) or a physical one (his own blood)

….I think my heart crackled up the teeny tiny pieces, which I have to pick up later. ;_;
God dang it Lucy, why do you have to be such a heart cracker to the ones who like and love you? You’re going to get more enemies than allies this way.. Though, I can’t really blame her, she didn’t know that Paulo was waiting for her the whole time, and she would have made his night.. :(
How much drama has been seen on BCB lately? These teens need some cheering up and humor now..

Gaaaaah! Poor Paulo! I feel so bad for him and my inner shipping girl is freaking out I love all the characters but so many ships! I actually have come around to MikeXSandy and she seems like a sweet girl that people are victimizing because it interferes with their main ship and the one we all had anticipated. But I’m learning that MikeXLucy might be terrible…see people grow up and Lucy, though clearly damaged, needs to move on to grow while Mike does too by learning what his actions can cause and that he doesn’t nee to be a dick to his one friend because he thinks it will jeopardize him and Sandy. But Sandy said she didn’t want to ruin their friendship, she just wanted her to stop hurting him. Which is understandable..

I know that feel, Paulo.

Wanting the one you love to show up, so you can tell them your feelings on an important day, just to make it extra special… and they never show up.

It hurts, man. It hurts.

@los.Saiken That is a sad BCB world you live in, there friend. Honestly, while I think that is a very strong way to look at things, I disagree with a lot of it. The LAST thing Lucy needs right now is MORE emotional abuse, she is a very insecure person when it comes down to it. I believe the best thing to do with mike is to leave him alone. Hurting him will just further damage his friendship with Paulo, who will most likeley be beating him, and destroy any hope that there is left of Mike and Lucy becoming friends again. I may be favoring PauloxLucy, however, I have agreed with what @supertails19 has been saying; that relationship will require time. I am also of the opinion that Mike, whether he loved Lucy at some point or still does, has lost his chance. Unfortunateley, I also think that if he told Lucy he loved her, she would fall all over him without thinking. (By the way, so many conflicting ideas, I think I’m going to explode.) you have to remember the time Paulo brought her cake from Tess’s birthday party (I think it was Tess…) and how she was really happy he did so, even though she was depressed at the time. Also, when Paulo carried her when she was sick. Since you seem pretty hardcore MikexLucy, I’m not sure anything I say will change your mind.

P.S. : THANK YOU for agreeing with me on the AugustusxLucy. That pairing is just right out.

Taeshi has once stated that we underestimate Lucy’s dependency on Mike.
Seriously Mike needs just go to Lucy and give her a 1 on 1 sincere apology. Even if he doesn’t want to be friends, he at least owns her at.

Thank you

Thanks for at least trying to see it my way. I wrote my comment when I finished all pages in one night so I was a little tired. Here is the rest that I wanted to get across for Pualo X Lucy. It might still have a chance but He needs more courage and keep going to her. He cannot stop at just the first hurdle or just wait around to see her. Aaaaannnnndddd……. He needs a boot in the a** from some friends (David!).

I can see it but don’t want it to happen D:

1st comment -
I know it because I seen it
2nd comment -
… Or they just need to “Get a room” and get it over with XD

Yes! That’s it! Keep commenting to me! You will ALL be assimalated! AHEM, I mean, thanks! I didn’t think that people would actually comment to me!
Also, it wasn’t the dependancy I was talking about, it was the fact that she still may have feelings for him, despite the fact she may mutually hate him currently.
