Whoa he stepped outside

Poor Jordan. I feel bad for him. He looks so depressed, i bet the last thing he wants to do right now is handle Lucy’s friends. Though i’m sure he knows they are just concerned about her, i bet he’s just stressed out and doesnt want to deal with it.

And Daisy looks cute. Daisy ALWAYS looks cute.

Also poor Mike, as well. Though he’s basically the most “hated” character at this point, i still quite like him, and kinda feel sorry for him right now. He looks so guilty in the first panel. And he should feel bad, to an extent. But remember, it was also Lucy’s fault too, for not treating him right in the first place.

Jordan, man you are pulling my heart strings. My brother quit law school a while back, his whole psyche and personality changed as his mental state broke down from doing stuff my parents pressured him into. I know that is different from the teen drama, but I feel for you, dealing with anyone suffering from depression is hard, you want to understand, but you can’t, you want to make things better, but you can’t, you want to be able to say magic words, but you know you won’t. The heavy guilt of knowing something is wrong, and that nothing you can say can make it better other than being there, as painful as it is.

@Taeshi. Hit close to home. I really love your work, its really good.

Paulo left first, instead of fighting to find out where Lucy was. Daisy was distracted by her own emotions. Abbey was focused on Daisy. David is, well… David. Sue didn’t feel strongly enough to try and find out what happen to Lucy when confronted by Jordan. But Mike stayed there for the longest time thinking about how he treated Lucy and (I’m guessing) where she may have gone. So yes. I still have my faith in MikeXLucy!

Okay, if Jordan didn’t feel like dealing with Lucy’s friends, trying to find them to talk seems like out of the question as well. Still, I wonder where he’s going.

I find it funny that this is pretty much what Mike wanted. All he seemed to care about lately was Sandy. he didn’t bother with anyone else (especially after he got his cell phone). honestly I was expecting everyone to turn on each other & everyone collectively snubbing Mike when they found out what happened. but hey, I can still dream.

p.s. I am not a Mike hater, I just love this adolescent drama.

Comment ID #247035

Why do I have a feeling the next drama is Sandy is going to dump Mike for an foreign guy she met along her travels, that is willing to travel with her and be with her. Provide things for her he can’t, then he will realize that everything he needed and wanted was right beside his side the whole time. But now it is too late with Lucy gone, he will be all alone which will be his own doing. Get your head out of your *** Mike and wake up before it is truly late…

Dusty Morgan May 31, 2013, 2:16 AM EST.

Comment ID #247036

I have a feeling paulo is still lurking nearby thinking about how messed up everything is, see jordan walking away from his house to someplace else, and follow him in hopes lucy will be his destination.
But then again you throw curve balls left and right and he could be meeting someone.

Contag May 31, 2013, 2:52 AM EST.

Comment ID #247037

I’m guessing that Jordan just waited for everyone to leave before he decided to leave himself. He actually feels bad for not being able to say anything to Lucy’s friends, especially after Paulo pretty much broke down on his door step. But for his sisters chance to be able to start a new life, he knew he couldn’t allow her old friends to follow. Especially since they ALL had a part in her mental break down. Not just Mike :/ It was obvious she was having serious issues after her confession to Mike went sour. Everyone was used to Lucy pretty much handling everything herself and not wanting their help that they just let her be. Paulo was the closest to helping her, but then he has some kind of issue where he feels he has to prove he could have any woman he wanted, but he actually cared to much about Lucy to use her. But that backfired and make Lucy feel used anyways.

There are so many things going on in this comic. More depths to things then just simply someone doing something wrong and it causing something tragic. It is more real. Complicated.

What I think is going to happen is Paulo will jump Jordan and demand to know where Lucy is Furious Abbey But I have a feeling that ;) < knows where she is cause she talked to him about it after coming off of that roof top and that is how her friends will figure out where she is and some go and find her. But it can go either way xD keeps us guessing! And I like that haha.

I think you’re right on the first one, I think that the group is going to begin to fragment now that Lucy is gone. It’s sad, and I hope it holds together somehow, but right now I agree with just about everyone who has been saying that.

Though, I don’t think this is going to be a permanent thing. I think (Hope) that Lucy’s going to be coming back, and the group will drift back together once she’s there to tie it down again. How long that’ll take, though, I have no idea.

Lanny May 31, 2013, 5:37 PM EST.

Comment ID #247063

The group drifting apart at this point seems likely. Mikes assessment of his importance was over estimated. Paulo isn’t after Daisy any more, and Daisy is no longer after mike so there’s no reason for either of them to follow Mike. Paulo was only at the table essentially for Daisy, and now Lucy. David is lost with out Paulo. Daisy and Abby in making kissey faces now. Tessa already seems to be drifting away. I don’t know what Sues motive is for staying with the group. This is high school drama at its finest. It’s a friggen soup opera: All my Angst.

Lanny May 31, 2013, 5:42 PM EST.

Comment ID #247064

so everyone gave up on waiting for Jordan to come out? wtf!

Daisy needs a hug, Paulo needs a hug too and some help finding Lucy before he completely loses it, and Mike had better confess to the whole ordeal before I shake him crazily or someone else beats it out of him… 8-D

Comment ID #247071

Wait, does anyone think its possible that Lucy’s family moved?
I mean I know it sounds ridiculous but what if the whole house is empty instead of just Lucy’s room and Jordan was just the last one to leave…. waitaminute if Jordan was leaving an old house he sure as hell wouldn’t have just walked off leaving the door unlocked dammit now I’m just confusing myself………

Waffleserrday May 31, 2013, 8:00 PM EST.

Comment ID #247072

So… I was thinking that maybe Lucy’s bittersweet smile at the end of the play—when she and Mike the Scarfed Wonder made up—was because she probably knew that she would be leaving soon, and that Mike’s proposal to “start over” was just too little, too late. Honestly, I think that would explain her actions from New Year’s up until the present arc. ._.

Also, Paulo has a vivid imagination, but I’d like to think that—even though I would love to see Mike and Lucy together :love: (despite SANDY getting in the way) Furious Abbey—he truly loves Lucy… though he’s shown that he really loves a LOT of girls. :/

Yeah, Lucy definitely died between the play and this chapter, and Jordan’s just now going to visit her grave. Undoubtedly.
Now, in all seriousness, I think I have an idea about what’s going on, but I’m going to hold onto it for a little bit longer. Just to make sure. Plus, it’s a pretty unlikely idea anyways.
Also, daily updates probably starting on Monday! YEAH! :D 8-D

Oceanus92 June 1, 2013, 1:20 AM EST.

Comment ID #247078

I’m curious where Lucy ended up.

Her family said she would be going some place, and her mother worried she would think that she was abandoning her.

So it’s at least clear that only Lucy has gone. That this was a decision made as a family and involved a good deal of discussion. It also explained why she simply turned down the prospect of fame and fortune.

A lot of people here are, of course, siding with those who like the drama. But as characters, examined over time you see a variety of things:

Lucy, has made a decision to leave. Encouraged by the past or what not, only the author knows. When she stood on top of the school, she was looking back and remembering. At least that is what I inferred.

Paulo, is boisterous and loud, but it hides the fear of his inadequacies and the irony is that when he finally admitted to himself he wanted something, not for any reason of popularity it was taken away. Permanently? Ask the Author. As I see it, he’s hurt. He’s done almost everything he can for this woman and it is apparently not enough.

But they’re kids. They’re not in control of their lives or their emotions half the time. But their story is compelling, not because of the drama, but because of the interaction.

I’m anxious to see Monday’s page. To see if there is a resolution or if like life, it’s never truly resolved.

My theory is that Lucy went to go live with her dad or some other relative for a while so she can clear her head. I really hope she is coming back I love her! Even though the person I relate to the most is mike but I didn’t scream at someone that I hate them that I don’t do anyway I really hope Lucy comes back and I seriously doubt that she is dead if she is then…. Well hell I’m screwed. Poor Jordan though he looked like he wanted to tell them but he couldn’t like Lucy’s family agreed not to tell her friends so they won’t interfere with her “healing” I guess

@cherry panda: Be like the rest of us and either read BCB again, write some fanfiction, draw some art, or offer some of your thoughts and feelings on the BCB Forums. There is plenty to do if you have the time and motivation to actually do it. You don’t have to be amazing at it either… I never thought i’d be calling myself a writer, but I still managed to create a couple of stories and I have more to come. All you need is time, motivation, and maybe a little creativity would be nice.

This goes for anyone else that is bored or whatever. There is plenty of stuff you can be doing to keep yourselves busy :).

I would’t blame her, afterall Mike was an ***. For the most part, she needs somewhere everyone isn’t. Maybe homeschooling, or a new school. Don’t get me wrong it would have been nice is Paulo and Lucy hit it off :-*
but Mike would have been up their butts I bet, or he would have been all jelous face like he was earlier in the comic Mad Lucy Mike deserves to have this feeling, at first yeah he was being beat up on and stuff and I understand that. But after Aulcapolco he became an utter douche. SHE saved him NUMEROUS times, he saved her once. :nope: he dosn’t really have a right to be the way he was being. Lucy only ever loved him, and after he said those things in his room, his true colors aired. :unsure: and im HAPPY Sandy slaped him for saying Lucy should die. Now she might really be dead, and what is he? Upset. Bravo, Bravo. :P

everyone seems to think that lucy turned down the fame and fortune because she was being moved away and such but i always expected her to say no anyway because that’s just how she is, she wouldn’t want fame and fortune regardless of what was happening. maybe i’m just missing something…

I really like Lucy, I really hope that she finally gets to be happy, because she’s really done nothing horrible to anyone else, she’s just in love.

Fess up to what? I’ve seen this before, so I’m only reiterating what I saw, but as far as Mike is concerned, he’s already attempted to patch things up. He apologized, admitted he didn’t need to yell at her and that he’d gone too far, and asked if they could try and patch things up. If I were in Mike’s shoes, I’d be confused as to why she left after I thought we’d finally started to fix things. Just because we know that he played a big role in her leaving doesn’t mean that he does.

Don’t get me wrong, he clearly has his suspicions, but neither he nor I would admit something that would make all of my friends hate me over mere suspicions. Until I learned for certain that I had caused things, I’d have kept to myself, and I don’t blame Mike a bit for doing just that.

@lost_cookie Fess up to his friends saying i think i may have been largly instrumental in her leaving and present state of mind rather than sit around twittling his thumbs like some ****ing ******* especially if you knew for a fact that this is all your fault i mean if there was even the smallest hint of doubt in my mind whose fault it was i would probably keep that **** ti myself as well

I think it’s a small amount of ingrained sexism. I’m not saying people are sexist, don’t take it that way, but when something happens to a girl, a lot of people blame the guy, even if the guy only ‘broke the camel’s back,’ as it were.

There will always be a difference of opinion, but mine is they’re equally at fault. Mike just claimed all of his fault at once, and recently, while Lucy had accumulated her fault slowly over time.

@Lost_Cookie Yes I agree, I think people tend to be, without meaning to, a bit sexist when it comes to the “Mike Lucy” situation. For example if Mike were to hit Lucy (he won’t), there would surely be a furious outcry from fans. Yet Lucy has hit Mike C-O-U-N-T-L-E-S-S times in the comic and it’s taken as light-hearted humour. Don’t get me wrong, this situation happens A LOT in all types of fiction, not just BCB. I’m just saying that some fans tend to be harsher on Mike than on Lucy :/

And people say chivalry is dead XD

But really, it’s a shame. I’m all for ‘the fairer sex,’ and I fully realize that in a lot of situations, women trump men every time. But when people treat a woman (or girl, in Lucy’s case) like she walks on wat- Wait, that doesn’t work with Lucy… Uhh… When people treat her like she’s blameless, and blame everything on Mike, it just opens the door to more situations like that, with more pain and, potentially, more explosions of emotion down the road. Nobody’s helped.

Then again, my thought processes are weird. I may not have explained myself right. ._.

David is beautious. I know that someday you’ll find the balls to stop stalking and start talking to your flower girl, and you will understand the angst Paulo feels. I have faith in you, darling. Fear not!

also: @everyone saying that Daisy looks fat… she is a ragamuffin. DUDE. My cat is a ragdoll and literally EVERYONE CALLS HER FAT. Even my vet! Truth is? They’re really really bug and really really fluffy. While 15lbs is huge for the average tabby, due to their bone structure and fluffiness and actual size… that’s perfect. Daisy is part ragdoll, therefore her breed calls for her to have some extra fluff and love for her to be a healthy cat. Also: who dafuq cares what anyone looks like anyway. Its not unheard of for anyone to be overweight or chubby or above average weight so uh. Just staahhhppp the hate and start the looovveee~ you wouldn’t want Daisy to leave the comic due to everyone calling her fat and have her fall into a state as depressive as Lucy’s, would you? Huh? HUH???? ;) think about it bbz~

ps: Jordan is actually Lucy, and that’s why Taeshi hasn’t shown his eyes. YOUR MIND= BLOWN

@shaaa well since Lucy liked him, how else was she supposed to act. She couldn’t cope with her feelings, she she turned it into threats, like in hey Arnold. Helga was being mean to Arnold on the outside, but on the inside she loved him so much

This reinforces my statement that Sue is very supportive of Lucy.
