Woah, the hell is link doing there? Also, @ Mike, either making out with Paulo or kicking his ***. Still though, he looks ridiculous. Who designed the costumes for this anyways?
Lucy’s going to be late for her scene and have to explain to everyone what the hell happened, which will be hysterical. That, or she’ll be out just in time and have to face Mike for the first time since December, which will also be hysterical. So, basically, win-win either way. For us, at least, not for them.
Either way, Is dangerous to go alone, jerkwad!

Robin Mike! He robs from the Lucy and gives to the Sandy!

I am grinning evilly and looking around shiftily while tapping my fingers together as I write this. And I believe now that Lucy actually said “Let’s make out”, so that is exactly what Mike will walk in on them doing. The Treaty of Brest-Litovsk removed Russia from WW1 in early 1918. Come on, the only other possibility would be Paulo stumbling out of the room clutching his jaw in pain as Mike looks surprised, and that wouldn’t have any drama to it!

Link Mike is looking for Zelda Lucy… this is perfect. Wait Mike is going to walk in just in time to see Lucy kissing Paulo or right when Paulo leaves her dressing room(this has disaster written all over it). Mike stop looking for her… you won’t like what you see. Hey Listen!

Oh here is where it all goes to ****._.
Hes gonna walk in on them making out.
And heres what i don’t get… Mike always gets mad at Lucy for going after other guys, calling her pathetic and whatnot, but why should he even give a ****? He’s got Sandy and supposedly hates Lucy so why does he care what she does with other guys?
He wants her to move on but chastises her whenever she tries to…
So you KNOW he’s going to flip a **** at this.

HA Lucy’s probably too busy mackin’ it :unsure: serves you right, Mike

Though he’ll probably just throw a fit over her rebounding, ignoring the fact that he was a total jerk to her and shouldn’t care if he was being truthful about hating her.

Either that or Lucy and Paulo are actually breakdancing or playing charades.

Wow, Tae I have to hand it to you. You’re really setting it up and I can’t wait to see how you knock it down.
If Lucy and Paulo are getting it on and Mike walks on them…holy crap, I don’t think there will be as much drama as there was in December or Another Shoulder. It will confirm Mike’s suspicion of Lucy being a hoe (I’m not talking about gardening tools here or am I?), he will become further enraged with Lucy, and he’ll probably start spitting at Paulo too.
Can you imagine how long and how deep such a bad vibe would carry on between them? It’d be like getting set on fire or frozen in a block of ice every time they meet.
This is however, considering that they ARE making out. This still remains to be seen. Also, if I’m getting Tae’s rhythm here, she’s going to cut it back to the play with the prophecy twins or w/e, just to slap us in the face.
Oh, delicious emotions steeped in drama, how I love you and yet how you tear me to bits. I blame my humanity…and modern society.

Comment ID #240270

@ Order 66, I believe the only time Mike was mad at lucy for going after another guy was when she hooked up with paulo just after confessing to him. For what I consider a very good explanation of why someone in Mike’s situation would find that a tad annoying, see this Ask BCB post!


I really don’t think he’d be made to find out they were together now, given it’s been a fair amount of time since all the drama between him and Lucy started and he’s more ready to come to terms with things between himself and her.

Link… Mike is going to enter the room right in time of “Let`s make out” preventing Paulo from making the wrong decision (Come on, Lucy is not Lucy now. She is out of her mind) and saving the whole play. I hope.

Anyway, this is the best solution for all of them

Oh look it’s link without his hat! Oh wait nope, that’s mike my bad. I like the costume a lot. I’m thinking mike lied to sue as he said that he “can’t pull it off without a proper read through” … Well that’s close enough to what he said. Regardless I think that sue is going to be one unhappy kitty in need of professional counseling if mike and Lucy screw up. And they will for drama’s sake.

What if Lucy is still in love with Mike? What if Lucy tells Paulo that she can’t be with him because she still loves Mike? What if Mike listens to Lucy say it before he walks in? Mike would have to re-evaluate everything he thinks about Lucy and he’ll finally realize how much of a bad friend he has been lately. Just some food for thought :x.

supertails19 March 6, 2013, 12:39 AM EST.

Comment ID #240284

Untill now Mike has managed to avoid raising the ire of the rest of the group. He criticized Lucy in private, and while others may know something’s wrong between them, Paulo certainly doesn’t know the whole truth. Mikes reaction will be priceless, no matter what his reaction is.

If he gets openly mad at or derisive of Lucy, I bet Paulo will leap to her defence, making my day.

As a side note, I’m actually kind of sick of Mike thinking that he understands Lucy. While he has known her for a long time, he doesn’t know everything about her; including how much she may have changed, especially recently. It’s unfair of him to assume she cannot change; it’s even more presumptious to assume you have some perfect understanding of someone elses motivations.

In short, I think Mike really has come to hate Lucy, and recently hate has blinded his perception of who she really is.

I look forward to seeing Paulo react to Mike’s expressions of his hate, if for no other reason than to see Paulo being really badass. 8-)

Though that kind of puts this play into an interesting light. Seems to me that Mike doesnt really think about Lucy unless directly confronted with her. After all, they have yet to even read through the script together. I imagine there performance will be memorable.

@ Supertails
It’s a nice thought, and all, but I’m pretty sure Mike will just accuse Lucy of using Paulo to get him back. He’ll probably say something like how she knew he was there and waited so that he could hear it. Basically, I doubt Mike will give in so soon.

At this point he wouldn’t listen any of it and would just hate Lucy more because she’s now again with her ‘dumb rebound’ and even more if he isn’t aware yet of the break up between Jasmine and Paulo D:

Comment ID #240297

I’m tellin’ yehz. Practicing for the play, is what she’s doing with Paulo. I’m assuming there’s a kiss scene, and she wants to get down how it’s going to go. Unfortunately, Mike being who he is, will blow it out of proportion, Lucy will be anti-social about it, and poor Paulo.

Comment ID #240299

The whole reason Mike started to get mad with Lucy was when he felt replaced in Acapulco - when Lucy thought Mike had died, the first thing she did was cling to somebody else, Paulo.
Mike then felt like she didn’t care about him at all, she just clung to him because she needed him, and combined by her constant arguing with him, abuse and sandy pointing out that that’s not how a healthy friendship works, he began to dislike her.
When she confessed her love to him despite being knowing he was in a relationship, and he rejected her, the first thing all his friends did was jump on his back, calling him an idiot, telling him his relationship didn’t matter and that he should have reciprocated,
Despite what he actually wants. Think about how many times Mike has been hurt by Lucy over the course of their relationship and none of their friends did anything…
Then when he found out she rebounded on Paulo, it reaffirmed his feelings of being replaced, and it’s after that he ignored her.
Mike took things too far in December, but after reading from the holday in Acapulco to now, it wasnt a sudden shift - Mike was growing more and more upset over a period of months and nobody noticed, and come December after playing with Lucy and recieving Sandys text, he had enough. How did Lucy react when she found out sandy was coming? Before she acted nice about it, she grabbed his shoulders, and you see him flinching - he thought she was going to hit him. It’s possible he saw this as her being reverse psychological on him.
Now if Mike walks in on Lucy and Paulo kissing its going to reaffirm his feelings of being replaced and used - this isn’t going to go well.
I actually still like mike. Again, I believe he went to far, but he is an abuse victim who was pushed for a very long time. Both Mike and Lucy could have handled things better, but they’re teenagers.
I just hope he spills how he actually feels to the friends, cause in all honesty they’ve been a bit crap to him.

@Nikita: Not if Paulo tries to ask for a chance to prove himself and Lucy still says no. The teary eyed Paulo will leave and see Mike standing by the door. I will let you imagine the rest ;).

@love/hate/hurt: Sorry, I read hundreds of comments daily and apparently I am not to good with remembering them all D:. It does seem to be a really good way for Mike to finally realize that what he said about Lucy was wrong and I think it would be nice if everyone thought about those questions before Mike finally sees Lucy. If anybody asks me I will just say I got those questions from you okay?

@KarmaKitty: I was just trying to be optimistic. I want Mike to rethink his decision about leaving the table after the play is done. Also, Mike only thinks that way because he believes that Lucy didn’t really mean her confession. Seriously, Lucy told Mike she loved him and within a short amount of time she is with Paulo. I have some links for you, yay.

http://www.bittersweetcandybowl.com/c45/p5.html This one was after Mike’s free fall off the rock bridge… Mike was not happy to find out Lucy had moved on to Paulo(that’s how he sees it) while he was “gone.”

http://www.bittersweetcandybowl.com/c48/p7.html This is what we saw… Paulo was being a good friend to Lucy. Lucy also stopped Paulo from going after Mike.

http://www.bittersweetcandybowl.com/c48/p10.html This is what Mike saw(Look at panel one)… any thoughts of Lucy being Mike’s girlfriend should have been throw out the window right there but we held onto hope.

http://www.bittersweetcandybowl.com/c52/p10.html Let me know if you every have fun getting yelled at by your friends for wanting to stay in a stable, healthy relationship. I’m pretty sure Mike didn’t have fun getting yelled for trying to be faithful to his girlfriend.

Well I hope you enjoyed this, because I spent the last 45 minutes finding these links and typing all of this out… yeah I know i’m slow :(.

@KarmaKitty: Ignore me and Just read @Kay’s comment. It is more organized, worded intelligently, and in general just better than this comment I took so long to make ;_;.

This play reminds me of The legend of Zelda: Oracle of Ages. Link :unsure: meets Nayru the oracle of ages Mad Lucy. Nayru is then possessed by Veran the sorceress of shadows. Veran uses Nayru’s time traveling abilities to bring the world into chaos. Will our hero be able to save the day?

Nayru is apparently a really good singer as well… anyone noticing connections yet?

Not yet? Okay then how about this: Link was nervously smiling when he saw Nayru because he also had a crush on another oracle(Din the oracle of seasons :D). Plus the other guy Ralph( 8-) I think that was his name) acted like he might have been in love with Nayru.

Wow, I get to talk about a couple of games I played as a kid and relate them to my favorite comic. This is going to be a great day :).

@supertails19: I couldn’t ignore your comments because I feel like they are the most logic and coherent to the current storyline most of times, I was just saying that because of that question and because I myself am in a situation similar to Lucy’s one and even though I don’t make out with ‘my rebound’, he hates me… But I get the point, Mike started to get upset at Lucy because of what happened at Acapulco, then finding out the ‘quality time’ she spent with Paulo just one week after she confessed to him PLUS Sandy making him ‘realize’ that Lucy always did mean things to him and it’s because of all this that I feel it’s almost impossible for Mike to think of Lucy as the friend she was to him once and it’s what happens with my real life situation too…But to be honest, I always look for your comments because for me they’re some of the most accurates ones here :(

Silly Michael, Link doesn’t have any lines at all. ;)

If he actually catches them in the act, he’ll most likely shrug it off, going all “Get your sh*t together and get out, it’s your turn.” giving her a :/ face.
And it would be well deserved.

@KarmaKitty: Sadly, I can relate to your situation… it really does suck being in love with somebody, only to find out they are in love with somebody else ;_;. Best advice I can give on this subject is to keep going on with your life and try to find somebody special that will give you the love you deserve :).

I try to understand the feelings of each character in order to avoid taking sides. I don’t like how Mike and Lucy handled their friendship… but I can understand their reasons. I also try to keep myself well informed on all past events… that way I won’t forget about a major detail like Abbey’s and Mike’s argument in Rising Temperature(I keep forgetting this chapter).

Reading the starred comments help me understand what is going on in a page if I ever get confused. The only problem I seem to be having when I try to make intelligent comments is that I tend to ramble… a lot. Sorry :(.

@Aether: Mike might be wishing that a slap is all he is going to get after this play is done. http://www.bittersweetcandybowl.com/c74/p3.html Mike can add lying to the director to his list of mistakes. And that list involves many cases of just not using his head and being oblivious to the feelings of the people around him. Let’s hope he can make up for his mistakes or at least learn to deal with the consequences.

@strider: I played Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Ages when I was in elementary school as well as Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Seasons, so I have played them a lot more than I played some of the newer games. I am surprised that I remember so much about those games after all this time. The way the characters acted in the beginning of each game just reminds me of the drama surrounding Mike, Lucy, Paulo, and Sandy(the emoticons from my previous comment matches up to who I think best fits their description 8-D ).

Well goodnight everybody.

Which is also one of the reasons we read this comic so much :).

When I first saw this, I though “Does Taeshi KNOW how much Mike looks like Link from The Legend Of Zelda series?”
Then I read the author’s note and I was like “OOOOH she does okay.”
I love playing The Legend of Zelda video games!

“Hi, I’m Mike! I just got through yelling at my former best friend in the whole world who I had a crush on and called her a parasite. This ultimately caused her to both avoid places where I’m at and make her pets tell me to leave her alone. BUT despite that, everything’s okay and I can definitely make a simple read-through with me being in her presence! NOTHING COULD GO WRONG, RIGHT? I MEAN, IT’S NOT LIKE SHE’S AVOIDING ME ON PURPOSE RIGHT?”

@DinR Paulo never went out with Lucy, it was Jasamine and Tess, and the two girls he sexed were one night stands only, SO Paulo has only ever dated two girls not four and Lucy was and still is not one of them :3

I fear that while Mike will be shocked, any apologetic feelings he may have had regarding what he said will be lost, as he may be reminded of when she “abandoned” him. Probably leading to him thinking that what he said out of frustration was actually true. Not considering that she has become a **** because of him, seeing as he has made her believe her body is the only reason people stay close to her.

Well of course Mike cant remember the script, Link only ever grunts, yells, and screams. Can you imagine memorizing a whole play without a single real word?

On a more related note there seems to be a lot of Mike hate recently and while i understand it their current situation is definitely not something that can be placed on Mike alone. Lucy tends to be to self-centered to consider other peoples emotional wants or needs, which is going to lead to a one-way relationship that will just end up with Mike feeling more and more like hes just being used by her. At the same time Mike was never forward enough to bring up these concerns with her and just let them fester within himself until they were released with venom (which itself shows, if nothing else, that Mike knows Lucy well enough to hit her where it hurts most). Mistakes were made on both sides, with both not willing to consider where the other person was coming from and not willing to make the first move to bridge that gap.

It would make no sense whatsoever, but it would just make me super happy if he walked in on Paulo and Lucy making out and they happened to be dressed up as Zelda and Ganon suddenly.
No explanation, it could just be one panel, and life would be complete.
Haha, but no really if it isn’t another cut away from the play, this next page is going to feel awful. Either he opens the door and is surprised and confused, or he just kinda feels apathetic towards it and shuts the door.
Either way this play is going to be a total flop.

Oh, wow, Eeyup. That managed to make a whole lot of sense and not much at all, all at the same time. Props.

So, right then. I like this page, and the one previous, but not for its visual content. The interactions between :unsure: and Mad Lucy , until recently, proved to be very insightful when it comes to who they are and how they think. Like Alfador said, Mike’s had these emotions building up for a long, long time, but it’s not as much his fault in that. Earlier in the series, it showed a flashback, with Mike attempting to act on his feelings towards her and her turning him down, likely because she was incredibly embarrassed by the situation. Not the best move that she could have made, but entirely understandable.

The venom with which he told her he hated her seemed to me to be one borne of two things: guilt and lingering anger. The lingering anger seems to me to have been the result of his last attempt, along with a dose of outrage that she had the nerve to admit to him that she liked him, after refusing to accept his feelings for her years earlier. The guilt would be from the lingering feelings he has for her. He still cares for her, and knows that he cares for her, and that makes him feel guilty because he’s with :D Sandy.

If you want to assign blame, you can’t really focus it on any of the characters. Period. For all you Mike-haters out there, you need to go back and re-read the scene he tells her he hates her in. If memory serves, he looked distinctly uncomfortable with the idea of what he was about to do, before hardening himself and committing.

If blame must be assigned, put it where it belongs. Lucy deserves some blame. She mistreated him for years, in the author’s own words ‘taking him for granted,’ (sorry for using that, but it supports my position.) During youth, that manner of treatment is cute, and expected. They don’t know how to deal with their feelings, and that is one of the ways it expresses itself. But she allowed it to continue well into high school, where it stops being cute to many people and starts being just plain frustrating, and painful.

Mike deserves some blame. While I understand why he crushed her (Partly to stop her from continuing to provide temptation, in part out of guilt for his feelings) I cannot agree with the decision in the end, especially considering the situation that has arisen because of it. The artist has always done a fabulous job of doing the Window, of making the eyes a great marker for how someone is feeling. Ever since he crushed her, there hasn’t been much substance to Lucy’s eyes. They’re flat, without much depth to them. Her affection, her love for him was an enormous part of what kept her driven and kept her moving, rolling with the blows. He didn’t take that from her, but rather used it to collapse her foundations, in effect killing her drive. If Mike can’t see that he’s done this, then he deserves some measure of the hate he’s getting, though not nearly as much as there is.

Then there’s 8-) Paulo. I love Paulo. He’s a magnificent person, with a heart of gold and a mind that spends as much time in the gutter as out of it. But he deserves some small amount of blame, if for no other reason than that he knows Lucy well enough to see how devastated she is, but is still giving in to her. Don’t get me wrong, I probably would, too. Girl I cared for for ages wants to make out? Alright. But I would not come out of it without a good deal of guilt. We’ll see if Paulo matches my ideal by the end of this chapter, but… Well, there you are.

I’m sorry for the long post, and I’m sorry that I only added fuel to the fire when it comes to the big blame game I know some people are playing, but I believe I know this story’s plot well enough now that my opinion would be of some interest. If the creator is reading this, I have only one question: How long are you planning on running this?

You’re a great story-writer, a great artist. You know how to get some part of your audience invested in your work (the Mike hate is proof enough of that) and I would be honored beyond words, as a storywriter myself, to know that my words were read. But I’ve seen far too many webcomics die before their end, before there was resolution of the plot. So all I want to know is, do you intend on giving this magnificent story a proper end (preferably a long, long time from now)?

Either way, it has been an honor to read your story thus far. I hope that I’ll be able to spend many more years enjoying this story, and pray that someone as talented as you gets the recognition they deserve. If you need anything from the States, let the Lost Cookie know :)

And… Again, sorry for the long post. I’m done.

And thank you. It’s really just my look at the story in general, instead of focusing on whatever my feelings may be at this particular time. Like I said, it’s a magnificent story. But everyone perceives it differently. There is no ‘right’ and ‘wrong,’ unless the author says there is.

My pleasure.

Honestly, though, I would be okay with the story ending in the next three chapters, so long as it ends well. Happily, sadly, however it ends, so long as the ending fits, and doesn’t feel rushed, I can accept it. I just don’t want it to abruptly end. Like, “Chapter somenumber, page 1 of 30” and never gets updated again.

I would love for it to continue for years, but even if it ends in the next few months or weeks, so long as it has an actual ending… Yeah.

And, to indulge in personal preferences real quick… I have to say, :O Jazzie is my favorite non-primary character.

I didn’t quite connect you to it, per se.

It’s also practically the only thing I visit outside of facebook in which I can talk to other people.

Comment ID #240349

@Lost_Cookie and @Alfador: We need more comments like yours: structured, insightful, and it avoids being spiteful to anyone. I’m glad there are a few others that understand the situation well enough to know that the blame does not go to one particular person. If we are going to blame anything it better be a lack of proper communication.

Neither side were willing to talk about how they felt about the other. Both Mike and Lucy had feelings for one another at one time, but if those feelings get ignored long enough they will fade away or weaken. The one thing that gets to me the most is that Mike and Lucy never had a consensual kiss. In one situation, Lucy kissed Mike and surprised him. In another situation, Mike kissed Lucy and she wasn’t ready for it.

I think I will end with this closing statement. To all the haters out there: Teenagers make mistakes. If people want to hate them for it then fine. Just don’t expect to make many fans or be viewed as rational.

I agree. Teenagers make mistakes, because that’s how they learn. I can certainly say I made mistakes when I was their (approximate) age. There really isn’t much of a point to laying the blame at one person’s feet or another’s. A good, learning-experience screw-up is a group activity.

And I also agree about the kiss. The fact is, as I see it, they are making a huge mistake in not giving their feelings a chance. Like I said before, I believe that they both still feel for each-other, but those feelings are either tainted by years of being ignored or taken for granted, or tainted by the other telling them they hated them. It’s sad that they never decided to just try it, even just once. To see how they felt after one real, consensual kiss.

But there is a method to the madness. We’ll see it eventually, won’t we? ;)

Also, what are you guys’ thoughts on Agustus (Augustus? Not sure of the spelling used)? He looked like he was going to be pretty important at one point, but he’s fallen by the wayside more recently. Except, y’know, for keeping Lucy from stepping over that ledge.

Why do people think that Lucy could still be kicking Paulo’s *** at this point? He’s obviously being sincere and Lucy hasn’t ever been mean to someone who was expressing themselves in an honest peaceful manner. He’s not doing his stereotypical lady swag whatever. He’s being honest, emotional, and open with her. She’s smart enough to see that he’s having a hard time saying what he wanted to say.

I think at this point Lucy is really trying to move on. I don’t know of Mike will see it that way, but then again he doesn’t really know her the same way anymore. The more you avoid something, the harder it is for your perception about that thing to change.

@Lost_Cookie: Augustus in a way is still a pivotal character. He gives Lucy advice and he is there for her when she has no one she can turn to. Well, no one she trusts anyways. He helped Lucy deal with her emotions in his own way.

Others might not think that Augustus showing up on the rooftop was as important a detail, but I see it as more proof that Lucy is not as alone as she thinks she is. Augustus helped big time by waiting for her, telling Lucy that others care about her, and actually showing concern for her safety. In the end he didn’t even have to be there, but it was a big help that he was.

Well now you know what I think about Augustus the anti-hero. He has the power to choose between good or bad, yet he chooses to be neutral ;).

supertails19 March 6, 2013, 12:13 PM EST.

Comment ID #240359


I think he still has a part coming, personally. I’ll go back and look for the specific page after I’ve gotten some sleep, but sometime near the beginning of his presence in the story, he said something along the lines of “Finally… A real challenge.” And yet from that point on, he doesn’t really do much. Could be that whatever he had in mind, he changed his mind about it, for whatever reason, and his role was to help her stay alive. Or it could be that there’s still more to come, and that he has another, more obviously important role in the works. Or it could be both.

Augustus is an unknown, and in a story like this one, unknowns can seriously change things. I’ve read books where an Augustus-esque character disillusions one character, and sends the character on a mad quest for the character he had, until recently, spurned. And I’ve seen stories where an Augustus-esque character just lurks there, taunting us with possibilities until the very end.

So far, I think he’s a misunderstood cat that deserves a chance. But only time will tell whether or not I’m right. Either way… I’ve got an eye on him.

@Lost_Cookie: http://www.bittersweetcandybowl.com/c63/p8.html This page is what you are talking about. Yes, I realize Augustus is untrustworthy and that Lucy should not be getting close to him, but he is proving to be one of the few people that she trust enough to talk to about something so personal.

http://www.bittersweetcandybowl.com/c68/p10.html something this sensitive is not what you tell people you don’t trust. His response made me cringe, but at least Lucy didn’t do something incredibly stupid. Lucy trusts Augustus more than she trust her own family at this point. It’s dangerous and Lucy might regret it eventually, but at least for now she knows she has somebody to count on, while she deals with what is left of her crippled emotions.

Well in any case I fully agree with your last line, mostly because I know a few people that would either put that second chance to good use or throw it away. I will stop there and let you enjoy some nice relaxing sleep :).

Ok calm down… Paulo probably grabbed Lucy and his kissing her and she umm hasn’t got a chance to force him off. Yeah that is what is happening *sweating bullets*

Mike I feel your not missing a hat but gloves… you just seem to me like you need some gloves.

Wait maybe Sue is a SUPER genius and send Paulo in there hopping he would be a manwhore(in a way) and Mike would come and see… first go “Wow Lucy” turn around only for him to hear Lucy struggling turn around saves the ****en day! When Lucy comes hugging him tightly out of fear thanking him repeating. Mike realizes he was dick kicks Paulo in the dick. Calls Sandy breaks up with her and takes Lucy’s hand and they walk onto the stage! After play, while Mike is signing autographs, Lucy comes up (shyly) and thanks Mike kissing only to find Mike grab her face and kisses her back! And they dated, got married, had kids and I cry my eyes out with joy fly to Australia and give Taeshi the biggest and best hug! Oh and give her a truck lot of cookies! THE END!

@Mightyena: Nope, nothing wrong with that :smirk:. Keep on walking Mike and everything will become very clear to you soon.

Mike: Are you sure nothing will go wrong?

Shoosh child. Now keep on walking towards your destiny :).

@Sanchan: Mike would be angry because he has to do the play with Lucy and it would be hard for him to get rid of the mental image of Lucy kissing Paulo when he already has trouble remembering his own lines. This would only matter if Lucy was really kissing Paulo :smirk:.

@ClaraCosplay001: Well Mike does have to perform in front of Lucy eventually… at least this way he will be speechless off stage 8-).

@Qsandas: You comment makes me wonder how many heart pieces Mike has collected from Lucy :unsure:. If Mike is not careful he is going to be wishing he had a shield instead of a wooden sword 8-D.

@RandomPhrases: Well informed and to the point as usual :D. The only way your scenario would get more dramatic is if Mike walks away and then reaches boiling point on stage :O.

@Hicks: Paulo versus Mike is going to happen a lot sooner than I thought if this keeps up o_o.

@DinR: Really? You’re trying to hurt somebody else’s feelings like that by using info that is none of your business? Go to your little corner and thing about what you said. Come back when you have learned to be more mature and civilized. Besides I think you forgot about Paulo’s history of womanizing :/.

@ThingamaJigglypuff: The play won’t go the way Sue planned, but it will be a successful event. What’s a better play than one that is filled with drama :P?

@Keyblade Dragon: The best surprises are the ones you never see coming or that you least expect. Like Jasmine showing up and walking with Mike to Lucy’s dressing room. The look on everyone’s faces would be priceless 8-D.

OH GOD! The next page could ruin this comic for me or make my life! Maybe Mike will walk in on Paulo holding Lucy while she is crying(about how terrible she is Thanks Mike :/ ) and maybe he will start feeling guilty or Paulo let put Lucy a side and kick Mike’s ***! Just don’t rip that costume! XD No, I am looking forward to Mike’s apology and the rebuilding of Mike and Lucy’s friendship :) Maybe Paulo needs to kick Mike’s *** to see that she does truly love him :)

@DinR: This is what you said in in one of your comments for today: “paulo isnt a man ***** he has only gone out with 4 girls including lucy and he has only had sex with 2 of them you just think hes a man ***** because you are still a virgin that doesnt get to see his girlfriend…ever and at least paulo is nice to people and cares for their feelings.”

Read right after the second censored word… that is not cool. I left out the person you were commenting to, because it doesn’t matter who you say it to it is still a terrible and mean spirited thing to say Mad Lucy. What makes you think it is right to talk to somebody like that?

@TheRealSomeone(akaSomeone: Saying “Please” and “Thank You” helps make you sound less demanding and a lot nicer. Thanks for reading :D

*irritated sigh*
I still can’t believe there are so many Mike haters. I don’t hate him or Lucy, but it just gets me aggravated when everyone treats Mike like feces and Lucy like a princess. They both failed because:

1) Lucy can’t help but be a tsundere around Mike and
2) Mike got tired of the abuse and rage-sploded.

Just read @Kay ‘s post.

Imagine if this was Scott Pilgrim (comic)’s backstory! Overall, I liked the comics over the game and movie. I wish they’d animate the comic and go word for word. Also, it would be kickbutt if there was an animated version of this comic. :)

@ Kay, Mike has been crap to his friends.

He ditched their feelings as soon as he got Sandy to rely on.

Don’t pretend that they hurt him when they caused a tiny bit of drama the first day when he rejected Lucy. They just felt bad for her. There was NO reason to feel bad for Mike because he had his woman, yippee for him. He hurt her feelings by the harsh way he handled it.

Seriously, do you even pay attention to the comic?

They may have not hurt him but they did push him to dump Sandy and date Lucy.

I feel Mike and Lucy’s friendship won’t have crumbled if the group hadn’t pushed Mike. Well if Mike had talked to Lucy about it and acted like her feelings meant something(even if he didn’t return them), maybe this **** wouldn’t have happened.

I am curious: what is your favor Lucy pairing? and have you read my fanfic?

I thought Mike and Paulo were becoming friends, too, so this may or may not be awkward.

Mike will probably have to be the bigger man in the situation, but hopefully this whole debacle won’t ruin the play :x

I feel like Lucy knows he’s looking for her and is doing this on purpose.

Okay I might be the only one here who is thinking this buuut in my honest opinion? Lucy is a b*tch, Mike is hardheaded, and Paulo is normal XD

And if Lucy makes Paulo cry, I will find her.

If Lucy cries, bleh, I have little feels for her right now. She seriously needs to stop galavanting around in her own private pity party, face what she’s done, come to terms with her friend Mike, and move on.

Comment ID #240400

@Kay I actually agree with you quite a bit, which is rare. I still like Mike also, but to be honest, he did deserve some of the bad treatment from when he was threatening to steal her friends away. I think the reason he DIDNT was because he was being threatened by his friends.
In the end, yes, I agree, teens are teens. **** happens. Yes, they both could have handled things better, but Mike could have been the hero of the situation just as much as Lucy, and Lucy was at least being respectful of the situation after a point in time and MOVED ON. Mike will definately still dislike her. That is what’s called, “holding a grudge” which we all know he is capable of, from the December chapter. Did you happen to notice how he NEVER really CARED about all the “abuse” he recieved until Sandy started talking to him? Sure, it may not have been healthy, but they could have at least been friends. He hadn’t even be truly abused in a way that was that harmful. Sure, a bruising now and then, that’s actually how guys treat each other all the time, so I wonder why he couldn’t just deal with it (though it does get tiring).
As I said before, Mike didn’t care about Lucy’s abuse all to much before, that is, until Sandy stepped in. And we all know how Mike goes googoo eyed for anything she says. He would jump off a cliff for her, easily, without thinking. It makes me wonder if the reason for this big friendship fallout was at the fault of SANDY. She said things without ever having MET Lucy, such as “I don’t like her. She seems mean.”
Does this seem fair? NOPE!
And as for the rebound, yes, Lucy clearly did rebound with Paulo, but the situation where she had just watched her best friend fall off a cliff and she clung to Paulo is irrelevent. When you’re in shock, things get crazy and all you want to do is cling to the nearest thing you can (I know this, having broken both my legs in a motorcross accident). So, basically, the whole situation where Mike got offended at the fact that she “moved on” so quickly is just another over-reaction on Mike’s part, once again, because of Sandy’s influence.
What am I saying exactly?
Sandy is the cause of the issue, and her tool is Mike’s emotions, and Lucy’s over-reactions to her treatment.

Rylan March 6, 2013, 10:54 PM EST.

Comment ID #240401

@I_Love_Lucy I can’t really agree that he stopped paying attention to his friends when he got together with :D Sandy. While it’s true that the problems seemed to have reached a crescendo since he got together with her, it had been building for a long time. And the truth is, Mike is happy with Sandy and, as far as the story goes, Lucy managed to make him miserable and make him happy (not as hard a thing to do as one might think.)

That being said, I DO feel that, if Lucy learned to respect him and not hit him whenever she was nervous, verbally or physically, she could make him much happier than Sandy ever did. Call me a romantic.

@KarmaKitty Looks like I’ve got another name to look for while I’m scanning comments. Hope to see more of you. ;)

@Rylan It’s not exactly fair to say that she’s the reason everything went downhill between Mike and Lucy. Everything she said to him made perfect sense and was perfectly acceptable. She felt that a person doesn’t pick on someone else, regardless of the reasoning. As I said before, Lucy had an ineffective and painful way of showing her affection towards Mike. If nothing else, perhaps all of this will knock her out of it.

Sandy was perfectly within her rights to say what she said. She made Mike realize he wanted to be treated better than he was, treated like he wasn’t constantly a problem. In the end, that paves the way either for him and Sandy to be happy while Lucy and Paulo get together, or it paves the way for Mike and Lucy to get together in a better relationship for both of them.

What Rylan says makes a lot of sense! Mike didn’t start hating Lucy until Miss Perfect said “Don’t like her!” Well I want to give Mike a hand to the face for only telling Sandy of the bad of Lucy. Really this is girl of your dreams and all you can do is talk **** about your best friend? Whether or not Sandy wanted to be. Sandy is till a factor in the downfall of their friend she may not have been the only cause but she definitely put the nails in the coffin! He is blinded by her. It is clear throughout the Lucy Angst Arc she is hurting. She gave Mike his space and he rages at her and calls herself a selfish parasite for being friendly? Makes sense.

@Death of Ink: You really think Mike would have a hand written apology for Lucy? On that he hasn’t burned? Oh this I have to see :smirk:.

@I_Love_Lucy: You do remember that Paulo sent a group of girls to beat up Mike, right? Daisy tried to seduce him into being unfaithful to Sandy(in front of a crowd by the way). Sue, Tess, and Daisy all ganging up on Mike and yelling at him because they want him to dump his girlfriend… you really think that is going to help? Oh and what about Daisy trying to push them closer together when they needed TIME APART TO COOL OFF(I capitalized this so you could realize that Mike was mad and making him madder was not going to help at all).

You are so right, Mike had great friends and he had no reason to be mad at any of them(sarcasm :/). It not like any of them almost killed him… oh wait remember that time David and Paulo were playing a silly game on an unstable bridge http://www.bittersweetcandybowl.com/c44/p6.html yeah… not exactly their brightest move :(.

supertails19 March 6, 2013, 11:36 PM EST.

Comment ID #240405

@TheRealSomeone He didn’t just tell her about the bad. Remember, he defended her at first, said it wasn’t that bad and so on. And Sandy never said anything like “Don’t like her.” She was upset that the boy she loved was getting beat up, and Lucy was the one beating her up. And then there’s the whole part where she asks Mike to try and make friends with Lucy, because she thinks Lucy learned to be nicer to Mike. All Sandy wanted was for Mike not to be picked on, and it upset her that he was. Sandy just showed him that he wanted to be treated better. That he deserved to be treated better.

I’m not saying that Sandy is innocent in what happened to Lucy. In a way, it was partly her fault that Mike ended up crushing Lucy. But her spot in the blame-game everyone enjoys playing is not that large of one. The blame, if it must be laid, lays with Lucy, Mike, Paulo, and to some extent their entire circle of friends. Saying that one person, or even two or three, were the reason for everything is a touch short-sighted.

@TheRealSomeone(akaSomeone: Sorry but I am going to agree with Lost_Cookie on this. All Sandy want was for her boyfriend to be safe and happy. If somebody close to you was telling you they were coming home beat up(even if it was mildly injured), I guarantee you would be upset. Example: If a mom ever sees her kid come home with a black eye, what is she going to say? A)Hey honey how was your day? B)What do you want for dinner? C)Don’t worry about it that just means they like you. or D) Tell me who did this to you, so I can make them never do it to you again.

If you answer D congrats I will give you a prize and that prize will be me getting to the point. If Sandy reacted to finding out that Mike was constantly get hurt by ignoring it or sayingit was fine then I would question whether she really loves him. Instead her reaction was to instantly worry and ask him to fix the situation by having him spend less time with his “abuser.” I realize that Lucy has changed and So has what Sandy thinks of Lucy. In Just Beautiful, Sandy asks Mike to apologize to Lucy and to try and be friend to her again.

If you want to keep hating Sandy then I guess you have to hate me as well… Sandy is slowly rising to to be one of my favorite SIDE characters, shocking isn’t it :D.

@Lost_Cookie: Well it makes sense since so many people find Navi and Sandy annoying. Also Link listens to that fairy more than anything else, just like Mike spends more time on his phone than doing anything else. It’s good to see you as well :).

Comment ID #240412

Unfortunately if Mike walks in on Paulo and Lucy(IF they making out that is) then he will have a bossy fit for several reasons

One- Mike cannot let things go. He will mull over them for years on end. Example: Sandy, she was his crush from the THIRD GRADE! He is seen still fawning and dreaming of her when he is in middle school some 4-5 years later. Any normal person would probably have forgotten or at least let go. Hence when something or someone makes him as mad as Lucy has, he cannot let it go.

Two- Mike HATES Lucy now and generally when someone hates something they don’t just break of and go their separate path from what they hate. Hate is like love in that it causes a person to think about the thing they hate ALL THE TIME( only, of course, in a negative manner). In this way poeple who hate don’t want said thing to have a happy time, they want to make its life hell on earth generally. Such is Mike would rather now see Lucy miserable than happy, which would also give HIM a sense of gratification and justification.

….Rambling is fun!!:D

Comment ID #240413

While I definitely agree that Mike went to far with what he said to Lucy, and I even agree that it may have been spurred on by Sandy who made him realize what kind of relationship he currently had with Lucy, I can’t really see Sandy as anything else but a concerned girlfriend. After all, she only hears about Lucy second hand from Mike.
‘Sorry, my voice is hoarse we were yelling at each other’
‘Yeah, my leg hurts a bit. Lucy and all, but I’ll be fine’
‘Sorry, I’m just frustrated, I just don’t know why shes always so hostile toward me’
These are the kinds of things she is likely hearing, and as such she would have every right to be concerned, and every right to dislike Lucy. But still Sandy seems to realize that perhaps she isn’t seeing the whole picture (after Lucy texts her) and tries to get them to at least talk to one another again, but by then the bridge is already a crumbling burnt out husk and it seems that neither of them were overly willing to take the first step.

Hmm, just finished writing all this only to realize that I’m kind of just reiterating Lost_Cookie and supertails, ah well that’ll teach my to type before i read ahead.

I skimmed through the responses, and it seems that people have missed an important point.

Lucy might be making out with Paulo because Mike said he’d leave the table. She might want to secure someone to stay with her, no matter what, since Mike is being an ***.

When Mike walks in, that might be what he thinks, and he may choose to let Paulo know of his decision as well. Paulo might take that in the wrong way, in which case Lucy will truly and utterly be alone.

Personally, I don’t wish to see this happening, I identify with Lucy a lot. (And I hate Mike.) But I have this bad feeling about this.

@Cera You actually bring up a fairly good point. It could be what she’s doing, and even if not, that could be how Mike takes it if that’s what happens. Personally, I hope that isn’t how things shake out, too. I love Lucy AND Mike, because I can understand where both of them are and why they’ve done what they have until now. If that’s how this goes, it could very well be the last straw for Mike.

But there’s only one way to find out for sure, and that is to wait. Now that you’ve mentioned it, I have a bad feeling about it, too. We’ll see, I guess.

Still praying this play might bring Lucy and Mike together, as friends at least, and it was stated in an intermission comic that this comic is all about Lucy and Mike’s quote ” BitterSweet” relationship. I think we are seeing the bitter of this relationship and that the sweet will come back later. Also I wish my school allowed us to write plays like Sue has, and hopefully Lucy’s rebound with Paulo will not ruin Sue’s big day.

I am not saying what Sandy did is wrong :/ But she wasn’t given the whole picture which is wrong. He defended Lucy? Well Sandy doesn’t like Lucy, so Mike can’t like Lucy. Reread “December” if you can stomach it. He says she is good. But does he tell her anything other than that? No. What about the almost drowning and Lucy tries to save him? No. Getting his drunk *** beaten up and saved by Lucy? “I heard what you said or at least part of it” Nope he skips over that. Lucy was there when Sandy left to him become himself? No.
I am saying whether Sandy meant to or not she did put the nails in Mike and Lucy’s friendship. And she tries to fix it? Let me burn down a bridge then try to fix. *claps hands*

@DinR: First of all, I never called Paulo a manwhore in this page, but I did call him a womanizer on a previous page; Second: I didn’t mean it in a negative way, because to be honest with you, I wouldn’t blame him for being one, because he had too much reasons that pushed him to do that, like Tess deciding to break up with him and receiving some kind of pressure from David, who even doubted about his sexuality. I also think that Paulo is a caring and supportive character and that he really loves Lucy and would do anything to see her happy, so I don’t get why you come off saying that I called him a manwhore and I don’t see why you have to insult me, we are talking a about ficitional character, not your friends or family :/ Wanna now why I don’t even have a girlfriend? Well that’s because I’m a straight female, so please don’t make dumb assumptions to try to insult me just because you misinterpret my opinion on a ficitional character I think that’s something that even teenagers like the ones portrayed on this comic wouldn’t do.

I hate her how she makes all these decisions about Lucy without even knowing her. Lucy is not a danger to Mike’s health! She has saved(or tried to) his *** more than a couple times. Sandy ruined a good thing. Will Forever Hate Sandy

What actually bothers me is Mike felt bad for hurting Lucy’s feeling by abandoning her in the third grade. But has no guilt for destroying her emotional. That makes sense?

Lucy may have been mad at him but at least she was there for him

@Lucy is getting back at Mike! People
I think you are all missing some very key points. On Friday we see Paulo still has the “hots” for Lucy so he is probably daydreaming, her face does not match the words. We see as of “Piece of Cake” Lucy is still shutting herself in her room to make good on her promise to Mike and Sandy. She may LIKE Paulo but I still believe her heart belongs to Mike. We have yet to see anything that points otherwise.

Sandy only left Mike because her parents were moving, don’t see how that is her fault http://www.bittersweetcandybowl.com/c15/p9.html and look she even tried inviting Lucy to play games as well. Was it Sandy’s fault that Mike kept wanting to play with her instead of Lucy?

This is sad but even Lucy knows that Mike is happier with Sandy http://www.bittersweetcandybowl.com/c71/p17.html and when he was with Sandy he was happy until the topic changed to Lucy. Mike hates Lucy and it will take more than a “sorry” to get Mike to forgive Lucy. I have hope that they will be friends again, but wanting them to be in a happy relationship is pushing it.

“What actually bothers me is Mike felt bad for hurting Lucy’s feeling by abandoning her in the third grade. But has no guilt for destroying her emotional. That makes sense?” -TheRealSomeone(akaSomeone. Mike felt guilty for what he did to Lucy because Lucy didn’t do much to deserve that treatment. However, that was for something he did in third grade. About 7 years later, Mike has built up resentment towards Lucy. You think there wasn’t something that Lucy did that might have been enough to set him off? I don’t think Lucy deserved it, but apparently Mike thinks otherwise. I hope that Mike realizes his mistake soon, but until then Mike won’t feel any guilt towards what he did to Lucy.

When Mike sees Lucy again it will be an eye opener. Whether it is because he notices the look on Lucy’s face or some other reason is yet to be known. We will have to wait until Mike finally sees Lucy. When Mike walks into Lucy’s dressing room this is all I will say to Mike: “This is what Lucy has become. Are you happy now? :(” Quoting it because i’m going to ask him when he sees Lucy, regardless of the situation. Future quote 8-D.

I don’t see Link when I look at Mike, to me he looks like Peter Pan.

My belief is let them be happy with who they choose.
If Mike wants to be with Sandy that is his choice.

Now that being said.

Mike needs to apologize cause even if he doesn’t want to even be friends with Lucy anymore you do not cause some one who seems to have psychological problems. At this point Mike needs to be thankful that Lucy didn’t do what we all thought and hang herself otherwise he would be in deep s***.

As for Lucy I hope she is actually serous with Paulo and doesn’t use him then throw him away as he maybe a pervert on the outside, on the inside he is a good man who wants her to be happy.

Don’t remind me that Lucy and Mike haven’t seen each other in awhile! Friday wouldn’t be about Mike or Lucy and I will ball my eyes out like a little girl ._.
Still one is worse than the other (abandoning vs destroying).

@TheRealSomeone(akaSomeone: http://www.bittersweetcandybowl.com/c15/p9.html are you talking about panel 15? If so, no I did not forget. “Was it Sandy’s fault that Mike kept wanting to play with her instead of Lucy?” -supertails The correct answer to this question was: Nope, not her fault that Mike is so obsessed over her :nope:.

If you were actually talking about panel 12. I didn’t forget that either :|. Well back to the archives for me. See ya later 8-).

Actually Panel 12 is what I meant! But know that think I would like also say panel 15 also helps my point. But I was not referring to you! Sorry about the confusion. O.o I was pointing out it seems Mike has forgotten! I am sorry I didn’t make it more clear I was “talking” to Mike or about him.

Now excuse me while I go facepalm hardcore style for my superfails <~~~ I am sorry I truly am I just couldn’t help myself XD *takes a punch across the face from supertails19* I said *KOed*
Supertails19: Now you know how Mike feels! Stop being such a Lucy fanboy! Or I will Sue XD you again!

Hahaha I’m sorry I can’t take the comedic events seriously.

If Paulo says Mike is a cheater and all the girls who like him chase him away, that’s a comedy moment folks, not abuse. :P

If he returns with major wounds, much like when Tess beat up the little boy, that is a serious moment.

Some of you guys take the moments that are lighthearted, WAY too seriously.


I usually comment when I have something to say :)

I like Paulo and Lucy. I’ve been hung over guys like Mike before in real life. The bottom line, is you romanticize their character. They really aren’t great just because a good amount of people like them (regardless of the reasons). When have real examples like the Kardashians to prove this.

Anyway, my point is, guys like that are not as great as you think they are in your head. Mike proves this throughout the comic. Granted no one is perfect. But in love you have to be able to handle a persons defects as well as their perfections. Lucy doesn’t handle Mike’s treatment/outbursts well. Therefore, let the happy and simple-minded Sandy have him.

wait a minute “I’ve been hung over guys like Mike before in real life”-I_Love_Lucy.
Are you a girl? O.o No offense meant, but for the longest time I thought you were a guy.

“Lucy doesn’t handle Mike’s treatment/outbursts well”-I_Love_Lucy
Who handles rejection of not just feelings but of your very being, and hate/rage at you when you have tried your hardest to change from them? I don’t believe there is a single person who can take that, and there isn’t a person who deserves to.
I still believe that if Mike turned around and told Lucy he loved her instead, I think would take. Sad isn’t?

@People calling Lucy a bitch, *****, and such
I need to get this off my chest and let this out. I have a great amount of respect for Lucy. She has put in a very big effort to change for Mike, not to win his heart but to win back him back as a friend. Hell if someone put in that amount of effort to change for me? I would be quite flattered, personally. But that is just my opinion, I am not meaning to rage it is just I am quite upset when I see things like “Lucy is a bitch” and such. But I have to learn to ignore it since 99% of you are probably ignorant(not to be confused with idiotic, stupid, or retarded).

I just to point this out! But in your earlier chapters even in Volume I, II, and III(if you want to call it that). You usually don’t jump around a lot in the scene and characters. Now I am not here to criticize or try to ruin this beautiful work of art most of you call “Bittersweet Candy Bowl” But if you stopped scene jumping so much I would be quite happy :)

@KarmaKitty Thank you. Perhaps, after I’ve spent my time in the Navy, I’ll try a columnist job. Perhaps you’ll see me in the paper sometime :D

For now, I’m going to hold back on my opinions, if for no other reason than it’s only a matter of hours before the next page is released, and I’d like to see what happens next before I say much else. But I must say, I still believe that no one character deserves more blame for anything that has happened than any other. Perhaps I’m just stubborn, but saying that any one character is to blame just doesn’t work. That and I refuse to get into a position that would count me as a Mike-Hater or a Lucy-Hater.
