My internet is hating me today!! And now it’s for real!!! I tried to edit my last comment but it was going so slow that I didn’t get the chance!! 10 minutes passed and the editing page haven’t even opened up D: So, really sorry about posting another comment so soon…

mmmmm Lucy may also be DIGIevolving wich would make it a Digimon Joke! :D But alas, I am bad whit jokes so those are my two cents to the ones that are good whit them.

On the other hand I am guessing what’s in the text boxes comes from the narrator so then it WAS part of the play… I know it, still I had this little hope… well so far for hoping. On the other hand I have this weird feeling that NOW they are gonna burst into song. You know how villains (witch is what Lucy seems to be in the play (poor Lucy, I love her anyway)) in musicals just have to have this epic-evil-cool-song! Then again maybe I am wrong.

… By the way… Wheres Nikita?

PS: I agree whit what supertails19 is saying in the next comment, those are some fancy light effects indeed. Also I didn’t notice the sword until supertails19 mentioned it…
Editing is fun… when my internet is not against me that is…

Wow, those are some fancy light effects for a school play. Sue went all out for this production. H-how did Mike’s sword become curved? Even though he knew what would happen, our hero still had to be true to his heart. That’s right Mike say what is inside your heart no matter the consequences… take love advice from Sue, it will save you some pain and heartache in the future.

Now we get to the part where Lucy takes off her robe and gives a brilliant performance in her lovely dress.

They *were* acting after all. Everyone who thought so should get themselves a cake.
Also, am I the only one who thinks Lucy is going to sing?
And not the evil-witchy kind of song but rather something really kind and beautiful?

Well… this page certainly answered a question that arose from the previous page. It WAS just Mike and Lucy acting out their parts …. darn.

Aaaaaaannnnnddddd…… It WAS part of the play. ._. For some odd reason i hoped that Mike would interrupt the play to say something.
But hopefully this may change something for those two in regular life and they’ll at least be on okay terms again? Not sure why, but I have high hopes for that. :)

Now the sword is a scimitar! :p
Each new page is leaving me anxious if something bad is going to happen!
And with 11 pages still left, I can only imagine it will.
And since Lucy is evolving, is her next form Hair Lucy? :)

Comment ID #242637

Oh man ogeez oh man. UGH. I have this terrible feeling that Lucy’s going to think it WASN’T scripted. Given I don’t think they ever did their lines together and drop character to tell Mike stuff. THEN THE DRAMA WILL START ALL OVER AGAIN.

Hmm… I hope we get some look into how the characters actually feel soon. There’s so much to be revealed… so much.
Also, I still think being able to summon a tiny breeze might be the lamest power of all time.

@ Vainilla
… and having my computer flip out at exactly 9:59. Terrible timing.

For anyone asking about the sword, remember that it’s a play prop, so it’s flimsy. Surely it’s just being blown back by the gust made from the fan.

OK Mike and Lucy were acting out their partsi have been wrong many times before. But from the looks on their faces the apology that Mike will eventually give Lucy may be pretty close. The real apology, not some play the real apology Mike needs to give to Lucy to help her get out of her deep depression

“Oh Mike, your kind words of compassion have broken the curse which has, until now so long afflicted me. Thank you for believing in me!”

“Fear not sister, for now that the curse has been broken, peace has been forever brought to our village!”
And they all lived happily ever after.

Seeing how this play has gone so far, this is a plausible scenario. But if it does happen, Sue will become my least favourite character for writing such an awful play. And seeing how soppy and corny Sue has been so far, this just might happen (hope not).

And if it doesn’t, Mike better not die 8-)

No more Pokemon jokes allowed? You know not what you have done.

After careful analysis I have concluded that Lucy is evolving into a Bellossom, she is using sunny day and this page pretty much confirms it:

Funnily enough this means that she is currently a Gloom.

On another note I’m thinking the townsfolk will be fine after this, after all with that evolution path she is losing her poison type.

Some interesting budget they have.

Lucy is tranforming from a cursed aeromancer to a beautiful enchantress of love and compassion. (Its fun to say something like that.)

Woo! Yes Lucy, move on with your life. i hope “Maishul” gets what’s coming … all though in most plays evil doesn’t win.

Lucy is evolving into Luciola.
Luciola wants learn Vanship-Piloting, which skill will you replace? Bitter, Rage, Loathing, Scorn?

Probably, I hope you all enjoyed the play XD There doesn’t seem to be much more… What will happen in remaining 9 I want to say is when the play ends, when there are 9 left.

I read Lighter than Heir. It seems like a good enough comic, but for one minor point: the main character is a complete jerkass. I found myself seriously hating her at times. It was good to see her get her comeuppance near the end, though, and I believe she may be turning over a new leaf in the comic, so I have reason to keep following it.

Personally I would think the ability to controll plants would be the best. Plants infused with the right energy can beari apart anything and are one of the most versatile magics of all.

At first I felt it was corny and nonsensical to equate a gust of wind with a ball of light, but then I realized it’d be really stupid if we just got a shot of Jess and Sue being normal in the direction of his shocked look so.. it’s cool.
I really like that they have enough ability to be able to control the size of their pupils in acting too. Probably unrealistic, but it would be a flat chapter without it.

I like the point that @Eeyup brought up, about them never have practiced their lines properly with each other. I kind of like the idea that they aren’t quite prepared for what the other is going to say or do, and I hope it leads to some form of catharsis in the future.

I think Sue gets the idea that these two would be best off having a sibling-like relationship. Hence why they’re cast as ‘brother and sister’ rather than ‘hero and random baddie female who will do a 180’.

This page just makes me think of Breakaway by Kelly Clarkson:

“I’ll spread my wings and I’ll learn how to fly
I’ll do what it takes ‘til I touch the sky
And I’ll make a wish, take a chance, make a change and breakaway
Out of the darkness and into the sun
But I won’t forget all the ones that I loved
So i’ll take a risk, take a chance, make a change, and break away”

Just the part that seemed relevant for Lucy: Bye-bye to darkness and hello to light. She took a risk in telling Mike about her feelings, took a chance by trying to become closer to him, made a change(look at the page above) and breaking away from her usual habits to become a better person. Oh and I was also talking about angel wings earlier so I thought the learning how to fly part was an added bonus(symbolism).
