Since something is wrong with the link Taeshi put up here you go:

Dodge this! Lucy used Stone Edge! Mike can use Quick Attack if he wants :D. Also i’m liking the way Lucy’s cloak moves around. So sinister looking.

Oh, its interesting to see her act. I was honestly surprised to see her shout and act properly. Then I remembered that she used to shout a lot before, so it’s nothing new. I can’t believe I forgot though.

So Lucy IS one of the cloaked people. Called it. Before this chapter started I expected Sue to choose Lucy and Mike for romance roles. I’m actually kind of glad Sue didn’t do that. It’s smarter to play their anger against each other.

Well my theory that HIC approved of still can work!

Lucy: *Flies away*
Lucy: I make them mow my lawn with their bare hands! *Sinister Laugh*

Umm if one of hits Lucy or Mike in the eye that is going to be bad, be careful Jessica

Sue: “I swear Mike if you **** this up I am going kill you!”

Well next page is going to awkward. Why not? How else is a someone suppose to act when they meet someone who claims to be a lost long sibling?

That sword handle looks a little small on Mike, need a bigger sword Sue!

Also where do I buy a cloak like that?(Not the last panel)

In response to last page last comment.
“Second, don’t talk that way… it is called donating(or supporting your favorite comic). If you call it cheating then I will feel bad about what I have been doing for each round of the tournament”-supertails19
Donating is good, but I feel it kind of takes away from the voting. If you can donate that is cool, but donating to win sounds kind your using something good for something bad. If you disagree, well we can agree to disagree. :)

” please don’t constantly check for my next story because I will post it in full when it is done just like my first story”-supertails19
Ok I will check once a day, I also check for A. Fox’s updates too! ^.^

” I realize how bothersome cliffhangers can be at certain points. Seriously if I stopped at Chapter 10 and said I’ll post the rest next week with The Reign of Lucia, I would have instantly felt bad about it. You know how that chapter ended, but what if you didn’t know what happened after that?”-supertails19
I hate cliffhangers as well. If I have a lot free time I would post 2-3 chapters a day everyday till I was done. But I don’t have that much free time, and I have to dig these ideas back out of my head which can be hard at times :(

“It would be like reading Ten Minutes to Midnight for me”-supertails19
I love you Taeshi but that chapter was slowing killing me.

Stone Edge has a 80% hit rate :/
Quick attack has 100%

“Also, don’t look straight into Sue’s eyes”-supertails19
Where is he suppose to look? At Lucy’s butt? XD

In the last panel that sword looks like it has been overused.

Mike I know you have to use that sword to protect a whole village on your own, but can you at least sharpen that thing before you go into a major battle? Also, don’t look straight into Sue’s eyes. She might go on another rampage if you look at her and stutter D:.

I thought for sure Jessica would be grinning right now since she gets to pelt Mike with rocks. Maybe she just wants to see Lucy’s performance with no interference from fans :smirk:.

I can’t believe BCB is losing so badly to Sandra and Woo. Furious Abbey I really dislike that comic! I don’t think the jokes are really funny at all and it doesn’t have enough of an interesting story to make up for it. I mean, Sandra and Woo is okay, but it looks like something you’d see in a newspaper. There isn’t a good strong plotline like BCB has. The characters here are more complex and the writing is more interesting without forcing humor into it. Not to mention the coloring is beautiful. That just angers me aghhhhh~~~ Mad Lucy BCB should be winning here

Jupi March 29, 2013, 12:36 AM EST.

Calm down there. I’ve supported BSCB to this point in the votes, I’m sorry though, I gotta vote for Woo in this final stretch, I just prefer it to Bittersweet.

@Yxela007: Something about a curse and the town folk being afflicted with green spots(plague or sickness maybe?). It’s a curse they are difficult for me to understand, sorry :(.

Lucy is pulling one for the team by getting hit by a lot of rocks.

Comment ID #241918

Of course Lucy is the “bad guy”. I figured she would be the other twin, but I didn’t expect them to be “reunited” like this. Well if they didn’t make up backstage, then at least it won’t be too hard for them to act against each other! :unsure:
I’m kind of really interested to see how this whole thing plays out. Just with their past and everything that has happened lately, this should be interesting. I wouldn’t be surprsied if this play brought Mike and Lucy back together and conflicted things between Lucy and Paulo. But hey, why am I even guessing. Anything could happen, especially with Taeshi controlling the whole storyline here! :D
Sue looks so determined. But I’m amazed at how Lucy and Mike aren’t snapping with all of those rocks being flown into them.

WellSnap March 29, 2013, 2:01 AM EST.

Comment ID #241919

S&W’s behaviour throughout the competition has made me vote for BSCB. I love both comics but the creator has been very nasty and hypocritical, especially since he badmouthed one of the earlier comics for winning with paid votes, yet he seems to be ok having beaten Avas Demon with money alone. He only takes the moral high ground when it doesn’t benefit him.

The incentives are bad sport as well, he has been advertising this contest shamefully and it has really colored my image of him and his comic.

Stanley March 29, 2013, 2:02 AM EST.

Comment ID #241920

Are those rocks, or mini puffy gray pompom balls (like the ones that go on clown costumes) that they’re sending their way to represent ash. Like how ash flies around after a fire, thr adh flying around Lucy’s character is making her a metaphor. Her being the destructive fire to the villagers.

Oh! And we all know that at the end of the play, her character either dies or becomes good. I can see that as a reflection of Lucy. Like Lucy’s character, the normal, old Lucy is going to “die”.

Of course this is just my imagination talking. Whatever the outcome is, amazing job Taeshi :D I forever love your work still, alway have :D

People,people,people listen both comics are good and I love both of them, there is noo judgement or harsh feelings in this tourniment .

But we can only vote for one side, and as for me I pick BCB, I’ve ben with this comic three years now and Its given me a lot insite on life and given a lot memorable moments

The athor of this comic works her *** off day after day envesting
Everything into this comic and damnit she deserve’s some recognition

Sandra and woo is wonderful comic with loveable character and very spirited ,but I’m sticking with BCB

Why do I have a feeling that… You know something isn’t making sense. Sue is using this play to get Mike and Lucy back together right? But Mike and Lucy both know how the whole play goes, so how will the play help them become friends again?

@TheRealSomeone(akaSomeone: By making Mike and Lucy have fun on stage with a battle. That is what will get them to become friends again… make them have fun together :x.

You might have something.
But I still don’t see how helps now. “December”?
I have cool theory about what might happen. Plus it isn’t impossible.
After the play Mike looks for Lucy to tell her she a good job, only to bump into Paulo who can’t find her either. They part, Mike goes outside to see Lucy standing outside alone. Mike stands there bewildered. Lucy notices Mike is looking at her and she runs away leaving Mike with something to think about. Perfect ending to this chapter.

I thought Lucy will perform with Mike as partners. Because Daisy wanted to rebuild the relation between Mike and Lucy. However, … Who came up with that idea to put them into battle!
…if Daisy’s brain did not catch a virus, that may be Lucy(or one of her friends)’s plan.

“I……Its that stupid frog! Kissed any princesses lately?”
Is it sad that my first thoughts on something are often a reference to Chrono Trigger?

On a more related note, I am going to go out on a limb here and say that those aren’t rocks as they are being blown across the stage by a fan. Probably paper or something, but what they used to give them the smoke trails and appearance of cinders I have no idea.

I’m gonna have to be a poot and say the third panel is a bit visually confusing. I’m not positive what is going on with Lucy there. It’s probably just the cloak, but it didn’t give any indication of being torn before, and there’s not enough detail separating Lucy from the cloak.

My goodness, both my favorite comics are in the finals. I really want BCB to win more than Sandra and Woo, but how they managed to get that far with bought votes, it seems like they could be bribing the ballot. Although, this doesn’t seem like its by popular vote if they’re allowing this. So the competition is likely by amount of dedication.

Now for BCB: We got some dramtic Irony for those who don’t know the play, and I mean those characters in the audience.

I’m donating for BCB in that tournament last minute because you deserve that win, Taeshi. You work harder and are more humble, and you’re just BETTER at what you do. Their comic has almost no plot. I do follow it, but the stories you tell are quite excellent, wheres theirs is merely intelligent and witty joking.

Or if you get first (and I only kinda hope you do because I also read Sandra and Woo XD), CONGRATS ON GETTING THE BOOST YOU NEEDED TO GET FIRST!! XD
As for this comic, I can’t wait for the next one, and now that I think about it, I find it odd that Sue would put Mike and Lucy on opposing sides of the play. I thought she was trying to get them back together or at least to make them friends again, but it seems to me like she’s just trying to get as realistic of a conflict as possible. XD

Really Sue. “Long Lost Brother” that is kinda lame. Really you could have writen something better. I am a weapon/military person so based on my semi-professional option, I decree that Mike/Link has a short sword about 2.5-3 feet long good for slashing and stabbing and better In close up face to face combat that larger weapons becouse it weighs less, usually, and it can be swung faster. And why did Lucy have to be the final, and first and only that I know of, boss in this game/play whatever you wanna call it but I will call this… Legend of Mike: The Cursed Sister.

I doubt Sue would make Mike kill Lucy(in the play). Lucy still has to sing!
Zelda is the princess so this would be :The Legend of Lucy: The Cursed Sister.

Yes because she is in a cave and is going escape through the walls XD

“Long ___ Brother”-Lucy
Oh god how do you know! I mean you know about Paulo… but how do you know how long Mike is….

It is normal that ” Sandra and Woo ” can gain more votes. “Main idea” is very important, S&W catch it, but BCB has no certain main idea at all.
So, tha situation is very serious.
But we have some advantages:
1. BCB is easy to understand even though you do not know English at all.
2. Miss. Vera is charismatic enough to encourage everyone to vote for BCB and donate their money to it. (Like Ad.Hi.)

@Huh? You can buy votes. Sandra and Woo had the most buys I believe, though I don’t think we can really critique them on that count, since we’re the second most buys. Though they’ve bought a LOT more then votes then us. Still, some fans really want their comic to win and have money to throw at it. I would donate some if I had the spare cash, but a students budget means that the little spare cash I have goes towards other things.

I think you do a great job at not making sense to me. :question: It is probably because I normally handle facts and the second half of that statement was an obvious lie. “Like Ad.Hi.” Mad Lucy B.S. See ya.

On a positive note, welcome back :)

@Shaaa: I’d say her expression is that of concentration, not defiant or angry. I mean, she’s focusing on the play; trying to make everything go smoothly.

@HenryWang: WTF is wrong with you!? Furious Abbey

Aww… final round of the tournament, and my second-favorite comic is up against my least favorite comic. And my least favorite comic is winning.
In other news, that is really a hammy line there. C’mon, Sue, you can write a better script than that! Fall Weiss was originally scheduled for August 25 before last-minute diplomacy delayed it to September 1. I mean, I wouldn’t have been surprised if the last panel of this strip had been the audience all simultaneously facepalming and groaning.

Taeshi is doing it as a joke for one.
And 2nd
” you need to take a chill pill seriously. what are you 10?-bubblebutt
So you think Hitler and Taeshi are a like I see how it is.
I need to grow up? I am upset of my favorites authors was just compare to Hitler! It was not meant in a offensive tone! :/

You sir need to grow up, I simply stated my opinion. If you have a problem with others opinions you flippen bigot then get out!

” if you dont care for sandra and woo thats fine but you dont need to be a bitch about it you know”-bubblebutt
She isn’t a bitch about it! She would like our support. That is the least we can do for her, to repay her for creating this beautiful comic and share it with us!
Get out! If you don’t like BCB or Taeshi then leave, no one is stopping you!

@supertails19: That means that you are knowledgable enough. What is your job? Another thing, to be charismatic is also a kind of ability, —just how to use it.
@TheRealSomeone(akaSomeone: Both of them are genius.
But that guy was a loser.
And I believe that Taeshi will be a winner.

If he was a genius he would have ruled the world. He made big and stupid mistakes. Please don’t compare that psychopathic mad man to taeshi, just don’t. :/

Sandra and Woo used to be a pretty cool webcomic but then it started to suck. Besides, novil is a total dick.

There is an old saying in China: “To win to be the hero, to fail to be a robber.(胜者为王,败者为寇。)” Not really suitable to be mentioned here, and it is often used to describe wars.

1)henry wasn’t saying tae is an evil person who was responsible for genocide, he was saying she is charismatic like he was, and Hitler was very charismatic, he convinced an entire country that Jews were basically responsible for a bunch of **** that wasn’t their fault. That takes a very crafty and charismatic person.
2) who said i dont like bcb or taeshi? i read this comic every update and i check the booru daily, i love this comic and taeshi is great, i just think what she did was catty.
3.)she kinda was a bitch about it, and people can be bitchy, i am frequently bitchy, but i don’t pull **** like her making fun of another comic. She shouldn’t do things like that, they will only come back to bite her in the ***.
and of course
4) you REALLY need to grow up sweetie :)

For a comic that’s meant to be a comedy, S&W fans sure can’t take a joke.

S&W did a picture of Woo taking a shot at XKCD, so you’re fine with that bubblebutt? Get over it.

i know i haven’t posted for over a month or so, but I just realised, anyone think that Sue deliberately made Mike and Lucy play brother and sister, not to bring them to together as a couple but as brother and sister?
I mean Sue is insightful enough to realise that Mike isn’t ditching Sandy, and Lucy is doing other stuff, but maybe what Taeshi is trying to do is show us that they are predestined to treat each other as brother and sister and continue to be close friends despite their fights.

Idk, maybe im being too optimistic… still, you gotta hope thats the way things are going! :)

Mike is a terrible person for what he’s done to Lucy, IMHO. She is kind of a jerk from time to time, but she’s really just very fragile. And Mike found someone better than Lucy, when he spoiled her by being there for her all those years!

Lucy just always gets the bad end of things I think. :/

…And Mike can jump off a cliff. ;D

When did say i was a fan of sandra and woo? A guy on a forum i check out posted what tae did and i expressed my dissapointment in her actions here. I dont think any comic should go out of their way to be rude about another comic, it shows bad character, so shame on sandra and woo for what they did as well, but i dont read sandra and woo so why would i go post on their page? I dont really care about them, but i enjoy bscb and i usually admire taeshi, but in this instance, i did not. So take a chill pill @stanley .

We tried to keep it lighthearted! The point was that BCB was really holding its own against S&W despite their total site takeover, so to do a little service to those readers who got us to 39% or so (at that stage) we copied the S&W vote graphic just for those last few hours on Saturday to try and spur on the vote.

It worked a little, but as expected it only got us to 47% or so. But it was really more of a joke for the benefit of readers who were, incredibly, voting in droves without much promotion from us.

I’m sorry that you thought it showed bad character. Such an impression wasn’t at all intentional, and we hope it made more people laugh than it did offend.

…how is Taeshi being a bitch? By making a parody picture of Novil’s vote begging? Have you never had anyone actually try to upset you, or do you just not understand the idea of parody?

No, being a bitch would be something like saying mean things about Novil or Sandra and Woo fans. Being a bitch isn’t “we’re going to make a parody of their picture to have a mutual friendly laugh about the competition”. Being a bitch is saying you can’t see the contest as “a serious sign of popular approval any longer” and throwing a temper tantrum that the comic you wanted to go against didn’t win on your site, and the comments for ComicMix.

Oh wait.
