Her singing is so beautiful.
She is smiling :) I love you taeshi *hugs*
Note Lucy is blushing! She is so adorable when she blushes! :love:
And Mike jumps to his feet moved by Lucy’s singing to give her another chance to be his friend :)
Mike, enjoy this. It is ok

NO! NO NO NO NO NO! Similarly, don’t you think this is at least a little cliche? Just a little?
Wait… So Mike is supposed to kiss Lucy, right? But they are brother and sister, right? And they know it, right?
Also, I don’t mean to be annoying, but something not involving the play would be very nice right now. I want to see what the characters think, not the character’s characters.

@ Love/hate
I agree, that would be more than a little weird.

Sue I give you 5 stars for putting Lucy in a dress and making her sing :love:. You lose half a star for being corny, but I love this anyways. Mike stay there, be quiet and enjoy the lovely singing voice of Lucy… this might be your last chance.

Oh dear. She has become the happy Lucy, if only for the play. Truly heart breaking. I do love the use of light blue in this panel compared to the darker colors in the beginning of the story. Now she starts singing happy things?

I wonder if the face Lucy’s making is acting, or if she’s actually feeling happy again? I don’t know, her eyes are closed and I’m not sure if her soul is back or not.

That shows you how shallow Mike is. He picked Sandy for more that just her personality! We see that when Mike was in 3rd grade and you reinforce that.

@Pepe Le Pew: Jessica, Paulo, and half the school must be blushing by now. Not only do they get to see Lucy in a beautiful dress, but they also get to hear her wonderful singing voice. Daisy must be filled with envy already and Mike can’t help looking on with child-like innocence. Abbey is probably looking at Daisy to remind himself that he already has a girlfriend. David… is being David.

@N-Master: You have a good point about the eyes, we still don’t know if they are 100% back to normal. At this point they probably are, but we’ll have to wait a little bit longer.

@JKRibbon: Mike looked more in awe when he saw Sandy and here he is just looking at Lucy in amazement.

Although there is nothing wrong with critiques theres a nicer way to put them.

And then, before we know it, it’ll be backstage where Lucy breaks his spinal cord for oogling his eyes out at her pwetty dress. And her pwetty voice.

She’d be like, “I DIDN’T SING FO’ YOU FOO.” *jab* :D

Comment ID #242744

Is this the length of a one-act play, or are we just skipping significant portions? I know it’s not actually one act, because David thought the second act sucked, but we only have a few pages left. If this is just reminiscent of when Lucy and Mike first met, we have a while to go unless it’s just going to stop in happy times, like it probably should. I’m less inclined to believe it’s a forced reconciliation, because there’s no painful history between the two shown enough to make that impactful to Mike and Lucy and not just preachy.

Suddenly Lucy looks SO ADORABLE!!!!! :3
And she simply looks so cute!!! :D

By the way I think someone was right on the spot on the last page when they said that Lucy was going to sing in a beautiful dress, can’t remember who it was tough…
@Taeshi This page… is just beautiful!!!!

Now… @JKRibbon That’s a very very good comparison xD Well I do like the type of dress Sandy is wearing in that page but I still think Lucy looks more beautiful here then Sandy did there… That’s my opinion and I will refrain from making any comment about Mike because well… we all know the problem is not whether Lucy is beautiful or not.

@ Mit @Follarch
No one said you had to read my comments. Si no lo gusta, ignoralo.
Similarly, it’s just criticism. Overall, I think it’s a pretty fantastic comic. I just think that there are some things that could be a little better, like this play’s writing, for example, but that doesn’t mean I think it’s bad, just that it could be better. In no way am I telling Taeshi her work is bad, or even ok, I think it’s great, and if she doesn’t agree with what I have to say, she can just ignore it and I will respect her and her work just the same.

I read the comments and considering you always post first…if you post something I disagree with I’ll give you my opinion.

Once again there is NOTHING wrong with crits but you always put them in such a nasty way it just sounds like you are trying to put her down.
example: “NO! NO NO NO NO NO! Similarly, don’t you think this is at least a little cliche? Just a little?”
Doesn’t that come across as a wii bit condescending? =/ I’m sure there is a more positive way of giving your points of view across to Tae.

Next page cuts to Daisy and Paulo. She tries asking more questions, but soon Lucy begins to sing and Paulo shushes her. Daisy, perhaps slightly annoyed at first, is quickly starstruck by Lucy’s singing. Paulo, for his part, says nothing more, but his expression makes it clear—it’s the most beautiful thing he’s ever heard, perhaps made even better by coming from the girl he loves more than anyone.

Or some **** like that. Only Taeshi could pull off something corny as that.

@ Mit
Sorry about that, but I absolutely hate it when something just magically transforms into a). A girl wearing a dress b). A guy wearing a tuxedo, so when I saw it, part of my soul died a little. There are much better ways to show emotional transformation that are non-physical or at least subtler in my opinion. The instant clothing thing is just way too flashy for me.

Well perhaps this is good story telling on Taes part in character development XD We’ve seen David criticize the script earlier on for similar reasons. It’s probably suppose to be somewhat corny because Sue wrote it :P

This is all a part of the play. Lucy is a great actress. I see what’s gonna happen here: Michael will be moved by her performance and ask her forgiveness and she won’t give it, or his true colors will come out again and some one will hand him his @$$ for it in front of the entire cast.

I’m sorry for being such a Non-Lucyx”Maishul” shipper, but, with personal experience comes webcomic bitterness.

@etyb: Yes. your comment is just full of win… thank you for posting it. I really enjoyed that image of Paulo just being starstruck. Because now it is making me think of Augustus just showing up to see Lucy in a dress and to hear her sing… everyone will just be speechless and in complete amazement #^_^#.

@Suzume: Don’t worry about not being a LucyXMike fan… it is nice to be realistic once in a while. I doubt that Mike would want to break Sandy’s heart after all these years. All I expect from him is an apology… asking for Mike and Lucy to be more than just friends seems like wishful thinking. Sorry Sue :(.

Random note: I find it interesting that a hug from Mike managed to make Lucy blush… or it may be nerves :x.

I suppose the alternative is that Lucy realizes “OH GOD I’M ON STAGE AND IN A DRESS AND THERE’S PEOPLE OUT THERE SHIIIIIIIT” and clams up/sings horribly, play’s ruined and she crawls in a hole somewhere for the next hundred chapters.

I doubt that happens. It’d be pretty funny, though.

Can I give this predicting thing a shot? well, here goes everything: I think if there is a kiss scene, it’s on the cheek. Or forehead…basically not on the lips.
Second, I feel that whatever is going on in Lucy’s home life, she might be moving or being put in therapy. maybe she convinced her mom and brother not to do anything until after the play, which is going on right now and then she’ll poof outta there. No goodbyes. So she chose to wear the dress without putting much of a fuss, if any, to make her friends happy before she leaves.
Paulo is gonna be heartbroken and mike might regret not completely mending the relationship.
Also, those aren’t tears, anon. They’re eyelashes.

So, this drama is more “High-tech” then real school-drama.
—Use high-powered fan and real rock to create real winds; Use a double-dress and magnesium lamp to creat a feeling of magic; So realistic make-up is available…

—The drama just jumped from 1400s to 1920s, what is going on??!

Yay Lucy! She looks so cute, though I’ll admit the dress would look better with the bow in the back. With the bow in the front there is just too much going on and it takes away from the pretty design of the dress. Anyways, just my opinion.

Moving on to Mike, I like the expression on his face. It’s this “woah she’s pretty” look. And now, he is so moved by Lucy’s beautiful singing that he totally forgets Sandy and falls in love with Lucy. lol Of course that probably wont happen, but it would be funny if it did. Late April Fools joke? 8D

Oh, one last thing… what are those little lines on Lucy’s eyes suppose to be? O.o Is that suppose to be a random single eyelash or something else?

I’d like to point out to those who are saying that this is really corny (which it kinda is) that a high school student wrote this. Not Taeshi herself, rather her high school aged character. It thin k it’s pretty well written play considering Sue is only like 15-16 years old. A lot of stuff that people write in high school sucks.

I like Lucy’s new look. It isn’t just the dress, but also something about the way Taeshi has been drawing Lucy lately, makes her a lot more mature looking, like she’s over it. Hope it leads to better decisions later, still unsure whether she and Paulo actually made out…..

Anyway, totally called the corny :P

Comment ID #242786

Are those tears in her eyes? Her eye lashes don’t look like those! I think she is crying, crying tears of joy!

Her blushes :love:
Her blushes could be may things. I think yes it part that she is on stage in a dress singing in front to people. I think mostly importantly the korat RIGHT in front of her. I think that hug wasn’t in the script, but it worked didn’t it? Play or not, Mike gave her a hug and, play or not, that means a lot to her. When was the last time Lucy got a hug? More importantly a hug from Mike! I think even if it part of the play, just like when she was sick and Mike talked to her, she will treasure this moment and hold on to it. She has her eyes closed because yes she probably really embarrassed or scared, but she doesn’t want t0 look at Mike, she doesn’t want the reality that he hates her to come flooding back, Or at least not yet.

“See all mike, take a good long at it because that’s what you gave up”-lov/hate/hurt
At first I agreed, and I still do. BUT I think he gave it up, but if he plays his cards right he can have her. By that apologize, dump Sandy(don’t put if off Mike :/ it is going to happen), treat her with the love and respect she deserves… And I will probably hug Taeshi to death O.o I am kidding!I will fly to Australia and hug taeshi! Only to be probably knocked out by suitcase XD

Comment ID #242787

OH MY GOODNESS! I was right, she transformed into a beautiful enchantress of love and compassion. Her loving nature is brought forth to all those she cares about and to everyone else. I can see that by Mike’s great apology, regardless if it was an act or not, has shown how much he cares for Lucy, regardless if he loves her or not, in which Lucy can fully grow up and become a mature, loving, caring, less insecure person. Even if Mike had chosen to be a jerk to Lucy, at least Lucy had to find a change in her life and eventually have Mike see the error of his ways and realize at how Lucy is good friend to have, despite her being the jerk for all those years. Such a lovely turn of events.

This page looks fabulous, I love how Lucy looks and I love the dress shes wearing. She looks beautiful! I’ve enjoyed reading Bittersweet Candy Bowl for these past two years and I have enjoyed much of the story and the characters. You truly have the mastery for this Taeshi and I will love to see this continue on to the end. Keep this dream a reality as it is one that’ll be cherished by many.

Now I got this song stuck in my head…………..

Make-believing we’re together,
that I’m sheltered by your heart.
But in and outside I’ve turned to water
like a teardrop in your palm.
And it’s a hard winter’s day, I dream away.

It must have been love but it’s over now,
it was all that I wanted, now I’m living without.
It must have been love but it’s over now,
it’s where the water flows, it’s where the wind blows
it’s where the wind blows

@etyb: I liked your first comment a lot more. the second on just seems cruel to Lucy, same with the pie fight… if anyone should get hit in the face with pie it should be Mike. Well actually no, the last thing we need is for Mike to get angry again.

As for Carter, He was a fan character and was removed. At one point it was true that his death was canon, but I think Taeshi might have changed her mind about it over the course of 2 years. Ever wonder what happened to Carson or Kiz? No? Oh, then forget I even asked. I’m sorry but I cannot take anything that happened during the guest comics seriously. Carter jumped into a wood chipper and then made in appearance in 2 more guest comics afterwards. HAHA WHAT?! Anyways it was mostly to give us fans a few laughs… it was very successful. Also, We won’t be seeing any more fan characters anytime soon… well except for Tess and McCain, but those 2 are awesome and they are the exceptions to the no more fancharacters rule.

On a more random note: Congrats on becoming a member :D.

@captainAndie: Yep, that all sounds right. If Sue makes a brother and sister kiss on the lips, she might have some explaining to do… although it is just a play, it’s not like she actually cast a brother and sister to kiss each other. As for Lucy’s situation, personally i’m leaning towards she is moving away and this is her last chance to get the others to think of her as a good friend before she leaves. Or Lucy is just trying to make sure they don’t leave her if/when Mike decides to leave the table(if she behaves like a good friend she will be treated like a good friend :smirk: ). Oh… I won’t even say anything about Paulo :x. Don’t worry you did a very good job.

@Kindle Kat: If you want to kill @captainAndie, you’ll have to go through me first… sorry but I don’t like standing by and seeing others get hurt Mad Lucy.

@Toastyjester: Nikita is both a girl’s name and a boy’s name. It is a unisex name and our Nikita is a male so think about it. Also, Nikita already had a conversation about this already. Are you really trying to get him started again?

@TheRealSomeone(akaSomeone: I’m at a loss for words about what could possibly be going through Mike’s head right now. I feel Mike’s apology was both part of the play and he meant what he said… but I have nothing else to add about Mike. He is still acting in a play, he could take all of us by surprise and go back to being a jerk as soon as the play is over. All I could do for now is hope for the best.

Also on an unrelated note, i’m still trying to think of an ending for my story… that is why I haven’t gotten back to our long discussions.

If you really want to get back to having discussions then here is something to get you thinking: Mike might not hate Lucy anymore, if he realized the mistake he made then he will start feeling guilty and when that happens the guilt will build and build and build until it finally has to be released 8-D.

Also, i’m not avoiding you, I just can’t think of a lot to say about these pages. They are just so amazing… I want to enjoy them while they last. The drama will most likely return sooner or later… more mixed feelings :(.

I would kidnap suitcase to know what is going on in Mike’s head! But don’t worry your safe suitcase.
I am feeling mixed “feelings” about how Mike will act after the play. Part of me goes maybe he will turn around and part of me thinks he will be a jerk to her IF he even sees her. He is walking on a tightrope right now with Lucy and if he isn’t careful he could screw up and forever lose her. He has the ball and no one is open, he either has to shoot or throw the ball out of bounce. And the clock is ticking.
“Mike might not hate Lucy anymore, if he realized the mistake he made then he will start feeling guilty and when that happens the guilt will build and build and build until it finally has to be released”-supertails19
The hate may have become a dislike. Or disinterest.
I feel the theme for the next chapter(s) will be how Mike’s guilt starts getting to him.
The guilt should have been building for awhile. No one has seen Lucy since well “December” and we are one week into school? That is like 3-4 weeks a month! I think that would send some flags to Mike, but hey want to I know?

I am excited for your story!

I needed an excuse to try writing about surgery and also have it be somewhat romantic so… yeah is there an emoticon for embarrassed? This will do D:.

@Gate: Worse, Lucy tells everyone she is moving to Rickter and Mike asks if he can go as well. Lucy tells him only if he sleeps with her… Paulo also has to join and at some point Lucy forces Mike and Paulo to kiss it they want to be with their true loves(Sandy for Mike and Lucy for Paulo) <__<.

How about Lucy sleeps with Mike via capture and bondage style, tells Sandy Mike took advantage of her, and makes them break up. Paulo will laugh and he’ll get beat by Daisy and Jessica, Lucy moves and gets off scott-free while Mike has to live with the fact that he got raep’d.

But in all seriousness, I hope Mike doesn’t get the chance to apologize. It’s not Taeshi’s way. Her way is filled with dramedy. 8-D

Nah, man/girl. I’m just saying this stuff to spite @supertails19 . Every time I see one of her comments, it always feels as though he/she is giving Mike a 1st degree burn, despite saying he/she is neutral in the Mike Lucy conflict. So I’m wishing for the exact *OPPOSITE* thing to happen. I actually do want to see Mike apologize, but not the friendship sailing because, you know, Mike and Lucy destroyed that boat and sent it to the Bermuda Triangle.

Mike Apologizes = Yes
Reconcile Friendship = Not A Chance

Also, didn’t Mike say that he never regarded Lucy as a friend but like someone he babysat?

Comment ID #242825

@Gate-Senpai: I actually don’t really care what happens to Mike OR Lucy but I would rather see a happy ending to this story than a sad one. How the happy ending happens is up to Taeshi… if we actually get a happy ending. I’m not saying it is absolutely impossible for Mike to end up with Lucy, but the chances they will both be happy together with no regrets seems unlikely.

Maybe something happens to drastically change Mike’s viewpoint on Lucy, but even then What do you think are the chances of him dumping a girl he has been in love with for years? There is the possibility that Sandy will be forced to break up with him, but does that guarantee that Mike will go straight to Lucy? Same with Mike becoming hated by everyone but Lucy… even then Mike might want to be alone than be near somebody that could end up ruining his relationship with Sandy.

Also, I DON’T want Mike or Lucy to get hurt so how am I giving Mike 1st degree burns… unless you are talking about my previous post which was meant to be a joke. Oh, if you were talking about when I said Mike made a mistake all I have to say is: Yeah Mike made a mistake he wasn’t the only one, but right now he has a chance to at least make up for it. Lucy has made mistakes as well… so many mistakes D:, but she has been trying to make things right. Uhh, I think I should add that as teenagers we all make mistakes… what we learn from our mistakes defines us :x.

So basically with your comment you are saying I upset you when I’m trying to be realistic and earlier I upset somebody else by being optimistic. I can’t win can I? :(

I think you were talking about this page with that babysitter comment: http://www.bittersweetcandybowl.com/c68/p23.html

And on the next page, Lucy will sprout wings and a disco ball will drop from the ceiling and she and Mike will begin a duet of “Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds” and the rocks blowing in the wind will become glass shards, and then everyone will die.

Because that’s what goes down when Lucy dresses up.

Alsooo… why is every comment so dramatic? XD Put yourself in their shoes. You and your best friend have been fighting a lot, but after being apart for a while, you’re ready to forgive each other… Right?
Honestly I don’t understand either of their characters very much. I just don’t underdstand them. maybe I’m dumb lol. but. if mike has matured a bit, of course they’ll be okay again. maybe not like they were, but not at complete odds.
As for Lucy and Paulo? I have a feeling a whole lot more unexpected **** is gonna go down. Unfortunately. But that’s just my premonition.

To Lucy&Mike, Good luck in the play u guise!! c:

Lucy appears to have matured a bit. Sure her hair is longer, but her disposition comes off as being more confident. Even though this is all part of the act, there is something about when Lucy sings that she is the most genuine. When you take in consideration the numerous times she was either reluctant to sing or embarrassed of being overheard by unwarranted ears, this is a shining moment in her character development. Sure her motivation could be partly contributed to not wanting to disappoint Sue, or by her inherently stoic nature of keeping her true feelings from surfacing. But give her some credit for being able to stand up in front of a large audience and someone, who adamantly and viciously expressed his hatred towards her, and share one of the most intimate things about herself. That tsundere shell around her is slowly chipping away. Gawking there a little bit, eh Mike? Isn’t Lucy “Just Beautiful?” :D

“but does that guarantee that Mike will go straight to Lucy”-supertails19
Why not? It wouldn’t be his first time crawling back to her.
I don’t think Lucy will take Mike back, but if she does I think what he said will haunt her and she may never feel that is good enough for Mike. To be honest is there a moment where she ever thought she was good enough for anyone?
I think if the word gets out Mike did to Lucy, she may not come to his defense, but she will carry this ‘guilt’ that she is reasonable and eventually she will work up the courage to talk to exiled Mike. The question then is will he finally see what has been in front him?

Your a genius!

@Gate-senpai: How about: Sandy surprises Mike by showing up one night sneaking into his room and tying him to the bed with his own scarf, uses Mike’s phone to send Lucy a text to meet up because he wants to apologize. Wait for it… and then when Lucy shows up Sandy comes up with a proposal to “share” Mike for the night and maybe longer.

At first Lucy refuses, but Sandy offered to let Lucy go first and Sandy would just watch. Lucy thought about it and walked over to Mike. She decided to release him. When Mike asked why, Lucy said “I don’t want to do this against your will, but if you want to do something nice for me in return… I wouldn’t argue.” Mike asked “Are you both okay with this?” A “Yes, Maishul” from Sandy and a “Sure” from Lucy. Mike dumbfounded decided to not ask anymore questions and enjoy the rest of his night… and the next morning with 2 girls that he loves.

I know this if for gate, but I have to! :)
I would imagine it would be different:
Sandy: *ties Mike to his bed*
Mike: “What gives?”
Sandy *smirks and texts Lucy* *Doesn’t have a cell phone XD* *Sandy calls Lucy*
Lucy: “Why would Mike apol…. How do you do”
Sandy: *hangs up*
Lucy: *rans out the door to Mike’s*
Mike: “Sandy why did you call Lucy?”
Sandy “I just have an idea” *Sandy grins at Mike.*
Lucy: *running down the sidewalk panting*
Mike: “Hell no Sandy! I love you not—” *Sandy use her bow to cut off Mike’s talking*
Lucy: *arrives at Mike’s opening the door* Mike? * sees a light up stairs*
Sandy: “Oh hi Lucy?”
Lucy: “Sandy? Mike? Mike!”
Mike *looks at Lucy with shock then rolls his eyes*
Mike’s Thoughts: Of course she show up!
Sandy: “How about we share Mike?”
Lucy: “What are you… Mike a is person not a toy.” *Lucy pushes Sandy walking up to Mike and removing Sandy’s bow*
Mike: “Lucy?”
Lucy: *unties Mike*
Mike: “What? Why?”
Lucy: *hands Mike his scarf and storms over to Sandy*
Mike and Sandy: *stand dumbfounded*
Lucy: “How could you do that to Mike? He loves you so much.”
Mike and Sandy: *stare at each other*
Lucy *tears start forming as she runs out of the room*

I am stopping here.

I would imagine Lucy won’t Mike do anything against his will or even something for her. Why would he? She thinks he hates her.

How is your fanfic coming?
I have my idea for the next fanfic after I finish my second one. It will be a BCB and Pokemon fanfic.

@TheRealSomeone(akaSomeone: Mike wouldn’t really hate Lucy as much if she SELFLESSLY releases him when she has the perfect opportunity to do what she wishes to him. Mike thinks Lucy is selfish okay well what better way to prove him wrong by doing something selfless. Lucy could have taken advantage of him in both scenarios that we came up with… she decided not to because she cares about his feelings and he means more to her than just another boy to be used… Mike is special to her. I wonder how many people are going to be mad about that last line? :x

I came up with that scenario to prove i’m not a Mike hater to @Gate-senpai … actually I didn’t even have to since my first story would have clear that misunderstanding right up. In The Reign of Lucia I didn’t have Mike acting like an jerk… well not completely. No, instead I had him be a kindhearted mysterious hero that cares for others. Okay, I probably could of done a better job figuring out Lucy’s personality, but I couldn’t come up with anything better than aggressive, judgmental, and kindhearted.

The story is at 12700+ pages and I already have them divided into 17 chapters. At this rate I should be done by chapter 25 maybe :unsure: progress has been slow because I am also working on 2 projects from school. But at least I know what to do with both of them. Despite having this workload for school I am still able to have some free time to myself and the story is going pretty good even if the plot seems darker to me. Anyways, I’ll just spend an entire school day working on the projects.

A BCB and pokemon fanfic? Huh, I guess Lucy is clearly going to be either a Mew or a pokemon trainer… this I have to read after I manage to catch up with your other stories.

@ ToastyJester

It’s a solely masculine name in most east Europe countries. (namely Slavic, like Russia, where Nikita Khrushchev was from lol) Nikita comes from the Greek, “Niketas”, which means ‘victorious’, which is a good thing to name sons at the time period. Made them seem manly
. It is mistaken in the west for a girls name because of the recent French popularization of the name Nikita for girls. In ALL technicality is IS a Masculine name.

…I actually like that the play is corny and cliche. I think it shows Sue as inexperienced. I mean we knew she liked READING but unless I missed or forgot something there was no indication that this is anything other than her first attempt at writing something. (The play as a whole. I KNOW she did drafts.) And cliche or not it’s not a bad story. Old prophecies, mysterious twins, lonliness being mistaken for evil… Obviously Taeshi isn’t showing us the whole play, but from the bits we’ve seen it’d be worth a watch, especially as a school play.

“If the ‘main’ cast were all Pokemon trainers what kind of Pokemon would they use? Umm like general types(?): Brock use rock, Misty uses water, Lance use dragon, Ash uses… Kind of like that.

Mike uses grass.
I feel inclined to say Lucy uses water, but that feels so dumb and generic. Also water frightens her. She would use electric.
Paulo uses fire.
Daisy uses normal.
Abbey uses water.
Sue uses psychic.
David uses steel.”

For those who have not figured it out yet, I am aware it is a unisex name but intentionally implied it was feminine. I did this because not too long ago Nikita became super butthurt and defensive over securing the masculinity of her name in the comments and sparked an overdrawn argument about it, which made it obvious that it was an easy way to push her buttons when she makes condescending baby comments like “NO! NO NO NO NO NO! Similarly, don’t you think this is at least a little cliche? Just a little?”

That is the end of my presentation thank you thank you. Seeing how the comments section is generally uninteresting and uninspiring to read, I will not be commenting again for a few months when someone finally does something stupid that I see and can exploit for laughs again.

Regardless of the reason, acting or other things aside, I forgot how nice it is to see Lucy smile in cannon. Holy hell have I missed it.

…this always bodes ill. I’m nervous about the coming pages.

Man, I could swear Lucy would go Ayu Beam on Mike. That would be hilarious.

Mike’s surprised look is all a part of the acting :/
I do believe Lucy’s singing is beautiful though… #^_^#

@Toastyjester: “I did this because not too long ago Nikita became super butthurt and defensive over securing the masculinity of her name in the comments and sparked an overdrawn argument about it, which made it obvious that it was an easy way to push her buttons when she makes condescending…” -Toastyjester.

So you know our Nikita is a male and you keep saying words like her and she when you are talking about Nikita… and i’m the troll? You are trying to start an argument and i’m trying to stop it… and you decide it is a good idea to call me a troll when you don’t even know me. I’d be hurt if your name didn’t have jester in it.

Anyways I’m not sure how you could miss me I posted around 10 comments per page for most of January and February. Plus I have been posting since June or July. I have even started posting in the Forums and Candybooru almost every other day. Maybe you only noticed me because you are actually here on this site for the first time in weeks or maybe i’m just that good at being invisible. Uhh, I try my best to be friendly, but I guess with the way I type i’m viewed as being condescending, annoying, or something to that degree. Not my intent and if you view it that way i’d like to apologize in advance:

Sorry for being such an annoying chatterbox. I have become hyperactive since January and I will reply to anyone I can think of a reply for… i’ll agree or disagree with you all for the sake of creating a debate within the comment section and producing more comments. We’ll hopefully be able to talk like civilized adults while we are having these debates. Just like if we were in a college classroom trying to get a good grade. If you managed to read all this I hope you enjoy your day sir or miss :).

@ Supertails
Now that we’ve come to the conclusion that he/she is not (necessarily) an idiot, but rather a troll (still probably not the brightest), it’s probably a good idea not to feed the troll anymore.

@supertails19 and @therealsomone. Where are your writings? They seam interesting and I would like to read them. On a side note I came up with an idea for what may happen after the play.

Back story. Mike apologizes and after a month of considering his newly found feelings for Lucy breaks up with Sandy, only to find out Lucy and Paulo are dating. During a school talent show, do they still have those?, Mike decides to sing with a couple of old friends of his, the friends are random people that have nothing to do with the story.
Mike,on stage: perfectly singing Jesse’s Girl.

Paulo: Lucy!
Paulo: Look this is not going to work out between us.
Lucy: Wha. Why!?
Paulo: Look you are still upset over Mike no mater how hard you try to hide it. And, I am a hundred percent sure he is in love with you.
Lucy: Paulo, Mike hates me he told me himself.
Paulo: Did he tell you he broke up with Sandy last week?
Lucy: No.
Paulo:Did he tell you he did that because of you? I am not kidding you Lucy, I love you but there is no way I can take care of you like Mike can. He loves you and he doesn’t know what to do.
Lucy: why should I care, I have you Paulo.
Lucy tries to kiss Paulo but he lightly pushes her away.
Paulo: Lucy stop. Isn’t this what you wanted, for Mike to love you?
Lucy: no. What I wanted was for someone to love me.
Paulo: That is a lie and you know it.
Mike stars singing,perfectly, Always Something There to Remind Me
Lucy:Crying, Pualo I just don’t know what to do.
Paulo: Lucy this is what you have to do, after the show go talk to Mike and maybe it will all work out.
Lucy: What about you?
Paulo: I think I still have Tess, so I’ll give her a call.
Lucy: thanks Paulo.
Paulo:don’t mention it.

After several sad/emo songs by Mike the show ends and Lucy is standing out side of Mike’s band’s room.
Lucy walks in,Mike is the only one in the room and he is polishing his guitar.
Lucy: Mike?
Mike: Hey Lucy. What are you doing here, the school closed half an hour ago?
Lucy: To talk to you. Why are you here?
Mike: to polish my guitar. Tell me what did you think. And be blunt.
Lucy: you were depressing.
Mike: Thanks I try.
Lucy: why where you talking to Paulo?
Mike: I needed his help with something.
Lucy: Like how to break up with a long distance girlfriend?
Mike: How did you? Never mind, yeah me and Sandy broke up last week.

I’ll post the rest tomorrow because I am to tired to type the rest right now.

That’s really good! :)

My First one

My Second one


Don’t suggest Love Me!

” Lucy could have taken advantage of him in both scenarios that we came up with… she decided not to because she cares about his feelings and he means more to her than just another boy to be used… Mike is special to her”-supertails19
” instead I had him be a kindhearted “-supertails19
We could write a fanfic together! Maybe…

@Devin: Here you go: http://www.fanfiction.net/comic/Bittersweet-Candy- Bowl/ enjoy a bunch of BCB fanfiction. Warning: Umm, read Love Me at own risk. Great story, but not a good idea for people with weak stomachs to read it. Friendly heads up D:.

Or you could follow the links right above me and go straight to the stories you were asking for.

Good night Devin.

@TheRealSomeone(akaSomeone: I only mentioned Love Me so that Devin doesn’t accidentally read it without being warned. It can make teenagers cry. Especially if they relate to the characters like I do :(.

… The idea of working on a story together sounds good, but how would we make it happen? Especially since I still have 6 stories to pop out of my head. Maybe after we both have more free time. Right now I need to focus on finishing my semester and you need to focus on starting your spring semester. Let’s focus on school first then we’ll work on stories after :).

@supertails19. What’s up with Love Me, and who said I was I teenager?

Devin April 11, 2013, 10:18 PM EST.

Comment ID #242865

@Devin: I’m the teenager that had tears when I read that story… I was young and foolish back then. I was not calling you a teenager and honestly you don’t want to know D:. Even if you liked the idea of Mike being tortured, and i’m not saying you do, but even if you did this story would not be easy to handle. Read another story like Four play if you are going to start reading BCB fanfiction. Do yourself a favor and save Love Me for last. Read it later if you are really curious, but do not… I repeat do not start with Love Me as your first fanfic. Now I’m going to stop mentioning that name because it brings back memories that I DO NOT WANT DX.

@therealsomone. What you wrote for Love and Hatred, so far, is better than anything I could ever come up with, I am actually a failed author, it is like friggin gold. @supertails19. I have not read your story yet but it looks pretty good.

Devin April 11, 2013, 10:41 PM EST.

Comment ID #242867

@supertails19. Love Me will not be my first choice, but I probably will read it with in the week, I once read an 860 page book in a weekend, but as much as I like Mike, because we are so similar sometimes, I can live with some people hating Mike, but I may not read it at all, thanks for your insight and now that I know it screwed with you, I doubt I will read it at all now so thank you for saving my soul.

Devin April 11, 2013, 10:45 PM EST.

I am free on the weekends for the most part. We could talk back and forth through PM on Fanfiction.com

I am actually flattered! That made my day :) I glad you enjoy(ed) it. I will try to get back on track.
Devin never shoot down your ideas. I thought my idea was stupid and would bore people, but I have gotten over 300 visitors(it says) so you would be surprised. I like your idea, and so did supertails19.
Hell if you think I am good author take my advice and write something if you got free time! I would love you read it.

DO NOT READ Love Me, it was my first fanfic and I almost turned away from BCB fanfics because of it. IT IS ****ED UP! It’s gory torture and unbelievably ****ed up plot!

Friends Forever by Meowth is my favorite fanfic and it a HUGE source of my inspiration.

There’s nothing cliche or wrong about Lucy’s “transformation”.

She was simply wearing the dress underneath the cloak. Flash a spotlight for a second, temporarily blinding the audience, Lucy then dispenses the cloak to reveal the dress and she starts singing. There’s nothing magical to it.

@Follarch: “There’s nothing magical to it.”-Follarch. I’m pretty sure Lucy’s singing is the magical part :smirk:.

Also please ignore this next part unless your name is highlighted below me.

@Devin and @TheRealSomeone(akaSomeone: I hated Love Me because by the time I read it I had already associated the characters with people I knew in real life and I could barely read through it… by the time I reached the ending I was in tears and not tears of joy either ;_;. One night I read part 2 of Love Me… I am not going to say the name because I don’t want anyone to try finding that buried story. I was foolish enough to read it thinking it might be a continuation of the original and that it would have a happy ending. I was way off :(. Well at least she wasn’t alone anymore, but why did it have to happen at all? ._.

Also, time for a warning on my second story: It makes use of cliffhangers just like my first story and I think it is darker because I am experimenting with fight scenes, hospital scenes, and plenty of stuff that will take me time to do properly in my head before I feel it is worthy of being typed. At this rate I will have a headache and so will the characters :smirk:.

BEWBS BWAH HA HA HA HA AH!!! At least mike isnt looking at ‘em right ;)
But he is gazing at her b-e-a-utiful face that looks so happy, albeit it is for the play. With that said, amazing cliché play, sue!

I think it’s a bit ironic that you say “Itsn’t Lucy just beautiful?” with a Sandy smiley face at the end xD

Sue totally wrote this play to bring Mike and Lucy back together.
