oh my gosh. I have so much sympathy for all the characters right now… Mike is so scared for Lucy right now. He may have wanted her out of his life, but he fears for what’s happened to her now.

I wonder… she’s either at the hospital, moved away somewhere new, or with Augustus.

Comment ID #247769

Hmmm.. I think my orginal theory I thought about would be correct now. Shes either A- ATTEMPTED suicide, and now maybe they put her in a clinic of some sort? Maybe the hospital? B- I have a feeling this has something to do with Mr Final Fantasy Creep, I wouldn’t be surprised. But I don’t think they just put her in a different school? Way too much drama just for that. But OMG THE FEELS RIGHT NOW. I can barely wait for tomorrow.

@TheLazyCharmander Of course he still cares about her, he just felt like he was being used by lucy as a crutch because of how she treated him a lot, that and him dating sandy doesn’t help much either! He still wants to be her friend

FINALLY, A reaction. I just wanted to see a new face on Mike, sue me.

And, where is Lucy going? New School? Boarding School? Mental Hospital? The Bahamas? Cause I’m doubting suicide…

Though, that seems to be what Mike is thinking. Maybe. You didn’t let Jordan finish, maybe he meant he didn’t want to lose her to her depression. Or something. I derno. Anyway, RUN MIKE RUN, STOP THE MADNESS.

wow i was wright. Mike does care. Jordan is probably meaning that they found a suicide note and they could not find her. So now Micheal, check my spelling on that i was always terrible at spelling in school, Scott man of action must save Lucy from herself.

ok that sounds optomistick even for me. Mike is proably worried about Lucy. OR Sandy just showed up at the bus stop they just so happen to be standing at. :question:

But i hope Mike ran off to save her or something like that. But if it is Sandy and you put alone time with Sandy ahead of saving Lucy’s life. I swear to god i will jump into that comic and beat some $#ing sense into him. Furious Abbey

hopefully i am wrong about that and Mike just had a moment of insperation and is now going to find Lucy and talk her out of suicide

Honestly it’s pretty obvious she ran away to try an forget about mike and every one else and we have no idea how long it’s been daisy said yesterday but David did say she was absent again. So I think it’s been a week or so. The reason her room has nothin in it is she trashed everything in a rage and then ran away. If she was dead Jordan wouldn’t have said “I don’t want to lose my little sister” he would have said” I never wanted to lose her” or something like that. But he said he doesn’t want to lose her she is obviously alive but they don’t know where she is.

Dr.Rockit June 6, 2013, 2:16 PM EST.

Comment ID #247813

@Dr.Rockit good point but she did not seem to enraged so I don’t believe she trashed her room maybe the cleaned it out because everything reminded her to much of mike ;)

………….. heheh, I dunno, it’s gotta be something like bodily damage if Sam’s freaking out over it as much as he is. That’s my vote I suppose.

Huh? June 6, 2013, 2:20 PM EST.

Comment ID #247815

@TheGentleman: Your rage filled comment didn’t exactly inspire me to even try with that comment which is why I called my own comment pointless. It was a lame attempt and it should probably get deleted.

I think that Jordan is literally going to lose his sister… or at least lose CONTACT with her. She is moving away and he will have to stay behind because this is where all his friends are and he actually still goes to Roseville High… Lucy however can’t go there anymore due to reasons we should all know. That explains her room looking so empty as we’ve discussed before. It explains her family’s conversation at the beginning of Ten Seconds to Midnight. It explains why Sam showed up in the first place when he was supposed to be at the university studying engineering(possibly to help out with the move and the whole family intervention thing). It explains why Lucy was looking at some scenery(most likely Roseville) on top of a rooftop in the middle of Ten Seconds to Midnight. Mike just realized she could be gone for good and not just a vacation.

Point is: Lucy’s moving to another location, Jordan can’t follow because he still has ties to Roseville(Friends and School), and well… you know what happens when you separate 2 siblings especially when at least one of them cares about the other.

^ This is what a comment looks when some time and effort is put into it. A big difference in quality and tone. Although this one will probably irritate you even though I’ve typed this calmly.

Mike still has a chance(albeit slim) because as Dr. Rockit: has pointed out, Lucy not gone just yet… she is around here somewhere and Mike is going to use his awesome hearing and his speed to find her 8-D.

supertails19 June 6, 2013, 2:21 PM EST.

Comment ID #247816

People are saying that she attempted suicide or ran away, but that wouldn’t explain her empty room. You don’t just get rid of all of her things (clothes, bed, etc) that quickly if that were to have happened.

ScreamingOnTheToilet June 6, 2013, 2:22 PM EST.

Comment ID #247817

Also, sorry for the double comment, but I like the idea that she cleared out her own room. I could see, if she ended up going somewhere Final Fantasy Creeper, that she would clear out her own room in the middle of the night and leave a cryptic note…? One of my ideas. I’m still standing by her going to a mental hospital or clinic of some sort. The vacuum in her room also makes me suspicious.. What did she do? edit- Also, I like Supertails idea, but I still half stand by my claim of her just moving away to be too little drama for what’s going on ;)

Gabba June 6, 2013, 2:23 PM EST.

Comment ID #247818

Blank expression —-> Comprehension —-> Sheer terror.
It seems like Mike’s realized something here, either his being responcible for Lucy’s behavior, that something is horribly wrong, or something else. But still, where’s he running off to? He couldn’t possibly know where Lucy is. Unless something else happened that we aren’t aware of?

@supertails19 wow did I give that wrong of in impression of me what your saying makes a lot of since and if you check the comment after my first one you see that i’m not just bullshitting it makes since that the reason Jordan is crying is because lucy is moving away but you have to admit that just up and leaving when someone breaks down in front of you after you’ve nagged them to that point is pretty dickish that was the whole reason for the freak out if mike left Jordan for the correct reason then he will have redeemed himself in my eyes

Comment ID #247822

For all you saying it’s suicide, explain why her room would be empty? Obviously she’s going somewhere at not coming back (or, at least, for a very long time). So either she’s in a mental hospital, she’s moving elsewhere (maybe with Sam? Why else would he be there?) and there is barely anything hinting to suicide. Besides, if it were suicide, why would Lucy be at the roof scoffing at the thought of it? She would have done it a while ago if it were REALLY her plans, wouldn’t she?

Theraiser June 6, 2013, 2:32 PM EST.

Comment ID #247823

Here’s a thought.

Was her father ever explained? What if her parents are divorced and her dad claimed custody of Lucy or something, and now Lucy has to live with him instead? Just a thought.

That, or her mom just had her go into a mental rehab or something due to Lucy’s dead-to-the-world syndrome.

Comment ID #247826

This has something to do with the page where lucy’s family told her something I believe.
She asked, I think, final fantasy cat, why everyone had to decide stuff for her. If you guys remember, her family had talked to her about something we didn’t really get to know about just before that scene ontop of that building. Then some time later Lucy asks paulo if he wants to kiss.

I think Lucy’s being sent away somewhere. Maybe a trip around the world, who knows?

I have a feeling Mike thinks he will find Lucy about to jump in to the water off a bridge if there is one over that river(one they both almost drowned in). However I don’t know if Lucy would go that far. I hope Mike just finds her sitting on a bench in the park feeling sad and alone.

The hell is going on?
Mike is playing robo cop/ninja the past few pages and now Jordan breaks down, then Mike starts showing some feelings and starts running? Where the heck is he going anyways? Did the cramps just strike him and he has to hit the bathroom?
Now I know this is supposed to be serious, but I only have a few clues that don’t seem to fit and I have no idea what is going on.
If Lucy really is moving far faaaar away, then what does Mike care about it? He never really showed any care in the recent pages, just ice and ignorance for Lucy who finally started opening up to him, again I might add. He has Sandy and that’s all he seems to care about, so what Mike if Lucy is moving? Hell, they way you’ve been acting, it seems like a plus and you ought to be dancing.

@Blank on Purpose: Here is where Mike starts liking Lucy again(read that whole chapter again if you still don’t get it) and here is where Mike decides he wants to try being friends with Lucy again … what are you having trouble understanding? The fact that Mike wants to be friends with Lucy or the fact he didn’t fully(well not completely, but good enough) realize what happened until this page? He’s sprinting to wherever he thinks he can find Lucy and I’m loving it.

Even though Mike said he hated her, I truly doubt he would actually want her to die. I know he said to Sandy “Maybe it would be better if she just died”. But I’m sure he only said that because he was annoyed that Lucy messaged Sandy especially since Mike had just told her how he felt about her. We all say stupid things we don’t mean when we’re angry.

@TheGentleman. Dude the only reason i put the suicide note theroy of mine out their is because i like to cover ALL possibilities when i do deep thinking things like this.

@TheRealSomeone. this is the best i could come up with in 3 min so cut me some slack please :unsure: Also the suicide theroy alone makes me shudder and it is my least favorite theroy here ._., but i needed to try to put some positive spin on it if i could and the only way i could think that could make it a little less heartbreaking was if Mike or one of her friends,perferably Mike, would save/talk her out of it. But sadly if you try to commit suicide you will be sent to a mental facility and locked up for a couple of years. so even if the gang talked Lucy out of it, they would not see her for a long time. i hate to be a downer but that is the truth. also did you just say a Mike X Lucy moment would be gravy when least page you were hoping Jordan would strangle Mike with his scarf. XD Also just a theroy but i think why Mike picked out that shade of blue for his scarf is because it is almost the same color as Lucy’s eyes :question:

Like I said. When Mike asked if they could start over and Lucy said that would be nice, she really did mean start over. She moved away so they both can start over. And Jordan is all broken up because he feels useless to his sister. I honestly don’t think she committed suicide. She had the chance during New Years when Augustus confronted her on the roof.

But that’s only my guess. Who knows what will happen. I bet you guys that Taeshi will leave it on a cliffhanger tomorrow for the last post of the week. A whole weekend to wait to find out what happens.

Mike has the “no no no this can’t be happening” face in that last panel. We might know that Lucy wouldn’t do suicide but Mike doesn’t. Here is what might he have seen or is doing.

1. Lucy
2. Another person in the group (Paulo etc)
3. Sandy
4. Going to the places they had hungout at
5. Just running away from the scene

But of course we wont know until the next page or even that.

BTW love the updating each day :)

@supertails19 I looked at that page, but it looks like Lucy is playing and Mike is just duping himself easy into believing she actually cares. She said she loved him, she said she needed him, and now when she’s faking it in a play saying thanks for saving the character I am playing, he starts caring?
All I see going on is just another rotation where now it’s Mike caring about Lucy, where before he just gave her cold stares and shout downs, and now it’s Lucy shutting out dun dun boy. These two keep throwing each other dramatic signals, but they keep interpreting it the wrong way.
Also, I am with the others questioning how much Mike actually even cares about being friends with Lucy again. He says we can be friends again and he smiles around Lucy again (man, who cares? I smile around people I’d rather lay down on the floor), but his body signals and the words he says shows he’s hesitant like he’s ready to retreat and attack her again at any moment. It’s shady and it’s bull.
Then we get these new pages in this chapter where everyone seems to be genuinely concerned and worried about what happened to Lucy, but Mike just sits there with a blank stare like he’s about to pass gas from the last meal he just ate. Jordan is anything but happy and Mike just keeps harassing him, when he is a large source for whatever happened to Lucy. He plays his stone-faced card, but then when Jordan starts sobbing like a baby, then Mike freaks out and just goes running down the street. The hell?
Is he going to go get on his knees nows and tell Lucy he’s sorry? Man, what a little puss. He played the tough guy who smiles with a gleam in his eyes, holding Lucy down and refusing her whenever she came around, but now he’s going to break down? Weak.
Just go cry to Sandy, little kid. I am sure she’ll pat your head and tell you it’s all okay, just like your mom does. You two love each other so much, but you’re so messed up in the head, you just can’t say what needs to be said, because it hurts my oh so tender feeeeelings and I need compensation for the crap you pulled on me, so we’re just going to keep stacking the crap up until somebody goes postal. Stupid people who can’t face the music just keep doing as stupid people do.

@TheRealSomeone. Mike got the scarf when he was hitting, secetly, on Lucy. so that got me thinking that it was more about Lucy than Sandy at that point. As far as i know Mike only relized they ribbion and his scarf matched when Sandy pointed it out at the fashion show, sorry but i forget the name of the chapter.

Lucy’s obviously not dead or about to commit suicide! If not, do you think Jordan would be just standing there? And, if that’s the situation, why would they take all the stuff off Lucy’s room? Probably they will move or something (my hypothesis is the parent died, and that’s what shocked Lucy the most, and being in her fragile situation already….)

Found this comic on monday and got all the way to the end by that evening (too much free time). I’m going to be restarting the whole thing soon but I just wanted to get my opinions out there with all of you guys.
From what I’ve seen LucyXMike was never going to happen. He just didn’t notice her in that manner. However, their friendship in terms of actual interaction was a perfectly normal/acceptable relationship (or I have very low standards for friends, not actually improbable). But still, cat’s (and people early on) can fight physically without harming each other and shouting matches can fit into many friendships. Mike knew this from the start but when Sandy said she didn’t like how he was treated by Lucy he got confused due to his near psychopathic infatuation with her[sandy], much like Lucy’s infatuation with him only he doesn’t have to hide it and he can’t see Sandy but the emotive level seems much the same. Lucy is infatuated [not in love{I think}] but can’t make a move because Mike has that love for Sandy D:. Anyhoo, that near psychotic infatuation makes him change his interpretations of their relationship in a very bad way. He changed his memories to specifically ruin their relationship. ;_;

Now, I just need to point out, in this re-interpretation of his, he sees her reliance on him as psychotic still, something he knows. Now, instead of being delicate with mental instability he just goes “I hate you”. Now, I’m not an expert on mental instability but when you see a mentally unstable person I just don’t think ripping the one stable anchor to their reality out of the ground seems like a really bad plan. The kind that might lead to actual physical harm to one of the parties involved.
That being said, I sincerely doubt that Lucy would inflict harm upon herself and she still cares about Mike so she didn’t just assault him. Instead, she helps him out, hides the evidence and leaves. Now that’s done, her perception is damaged so she doesn’t really trust her friends because Mike was her measure for them and that’s gone so she goes away to think things through (smart cat). Emotional problems were going to occur so the depression, locking herself away, rather frigid interactions with everyone else seem entirely possible. I agree that she postponed whatever her Mother and brothers (haven’t seen father) were discussing until she could finish the play so she could leave happy memories. Smooches Paulo to keep him quiet because she knows he wants to and she doesn’t actually want to hear anything serious. I’m not sure whether she believes what Mike said about no one liking her at this point but the decisions been made so she’s pruning her emotional attachments. Not sure how Augustus fits in but I approve of that guy. I don’t think Lucy is going to him because we’ve seen where he lives. No one is happy in that scenario.
Should probably finish because I don’t think you can call what I’ve done here a comment but didn’t know where else to put it.

I don’t support any of the characters for Lucy because I don’t think any of them are in a good enough spot for her. Lucy is a lonely soul no matter how many friends she gets so she needs a proper match. Sorry Paulo fan’s but he’s not quite there yet (close though)

Wherever she went she took her pets. The ones that will never betray her (Yashy will run out at some point to look for Mike. Not sure what ramifications that will have with Lucy)

Mike needs to tell someone about his tirade at Lucy( how did his family NOT hear that) and get some really good verbal smack down ( I couldn’t do it. I’d punch him until I got dragged off)

If Sandy and Lucy do meet I think they would be good friends. Not sure why.

Taeshi, you’ve given everyone who has seen this a beautiful gift. If you read this, know that you are a beautiful person with a talent for storytelling. And though I’m sure everyone hear knows that it’s important it gets said sometimes.

Sorry that this wasn’t a proper comment but this has been the only comment I’ve ever posted online (ever)

@Blank on Purpose: Wow, that’s a lot of pent up resentment you have there… Umm, I kind of already had a similar conversation with @Rii in the previous update… any way you can have a look so I don’t end up repeating myself? :unsure:

Umm, just so you know Mike is not exactly the fastest one when it comes to putting pieces together… he’s smart, but it took him a while to realize how dire the situation is. Mike didn’t have a big dramatic reaction like Paulo did because it didn’t fully sink in. Although it does look like Mike finally gets the message :unsure:.

@Evan: Nah, that was the moment Mike realized he has to run straight to Lucy(hopefully).

blurgablurgablur June 6, 2013, 6:28 PM EST.

Comment ID #247883

Okay, my turn to take a crack at guessing what is going on.

In Ten Seconds to Midnight, Lucy’s mom says:

“I really don’t want to do it…

…But we can’t spend every moment fretting over what’s next…”

I think that’s why everyone thinks Lucy is being sent away. But her mom goes on to say:

“Can you imagine? It’d be a big step, but she could think I’m abandoning her.”

Sam replies:

“You wouldn’t be. She’d understand.”

That suggests something very different. I would like to propose that Lucy’s mom is barely making enough money to make ends meet (“every moment fretting over what’s next”) and has disclosed this to her two older children. She hadn’t told Lucy at that point because she is still a kid.

So the “big step” is a new (and much better) job in a new place. But rather than uprooting her kids, Lucy’s mom plans to leave all three of them in the house, probably under Sam’s care (either until they finish out the school year or perhaps until they graduate). That could be the cause of Lucy’s mom’s concern that she is “abandoning” Lucy if she takes the job.

On the next page Lucy says:

“So do I have a say in any of this?”

After the fade out, she could have asked to go with her mom. If they two of them are moving out and into an apartment together, that would explain why all of Lucy’s furniture is gone. Going to a hospital or committing suicide would not.

If Lucy came part way clean (say, told her family that she doesn’t have any desire to stay at her current school) that could explain Jordan’s anger towards her friends. And his sadness could be because his baby sister is leaving while he is staying behind to finish up high school.

Edit: As an aside, that could also account for why Lucy agreed that starting over was a good idea when Mike suggested it: because that’s exactly what she is planning to do. Somewhere else.

Comment ID #247884

Is it wrong that I’m enjoying Mike’s guilt face? As much as he had every right to tell Lucy how he felt, the way he went about it was still pretty harsh. And speaking as someone who’s diagnosed with depression and bipolar, an outburst like that does send one back a bit

Edit: @MiscKitty Your explanation sounds close to being real. It would make A LOT of sense :)

I feel like the only reason Mike suddenly “cares” is because he realizes now that it IS all hs fault, and he’s finally getting crammed full of guilt.

Good! Realize what you’ve done, Mike!

Don’t worry, she’s not dead. Taeshi has us wrapped about her little finger when it comes to this story, she can make us fear whatever she wants, but she’s not dead.

I don’t understand why there’s a question of being “hopeful” or not concerning Lucy being alive considering Taeshi’s already said no one’s gonna die in this thing. I mean, I don’t mind people saying she’s dead, it’s pretty funny, but why all the fuss about it in the first place?

Comment ID #247948

Best guesses: Hospital, airport, psych-ward, talent agency.

But anyways, what’s with Mike? He suddenly cares? Is this all because Sandy told him to? He’s that whipped? Or did he have one of those instant reevaluations that occur in every other romantic comedy? Either way, I wouldn’t give him a second chance so easily in Lucy’s place. Mainly because I think Mike needs some personal time to look inward and asses this cluster-**** of a drama storm he’s in.

Unrelated note: Taeshi, did you write that last word as “doing”, but just changed it to a “going” with the d stem still sticking up? Don’t be embarrassed, we’ve all done that. XD

And I’m leaving tomorrow, wha-do-ya say?

When I’m gone
You’re gonna miss me when I’m gone
You’re gonna miss me by my hair
You’re gonna miss me everywhere, oh
You’re gonna miss me when I’m gone

I’ve got my ticket for the long way ‘round
The one with the prettiest of views
It’s got mountains, it’s got rivers, it’s got sights to give you shivers
But it sure would be prettier with you

When I’m gone
When I’m gone
You’re gonna miss me when I’m gone
You’re gonna miss me by my walk
You’re gonna miss me by my talk, oh
You’re gonna miss me when I’m gone

So yeah, Lucy died and Jordan says he don’t want to lose her. Makes sense. Or better yet, she’s about to commit suicide, yet her family does nothing. People make sense dammnit.
Lucy is probably off to a funny farm. Her mother was absent, so was her older brother which mostly means a good doctor will fill her tummy with happy pills soon enough. Mike will probably catch glimpse of her, just as she will be boarding bus/train/helicopter/space craft with one or both of her parents. We will have a brief sad look given by Lucy and then bang - end of the chapter. This or she already commited suicide and her vengeful spirit is roaming this world, so Mike has to exorcise the living (oh the irony) **** out of her. Makes more sense, I guess.

Excuse me kind sir, but I do believe you called me a troll. This is preposterous and therefore you’re no longer welcome on my tea parties.

She saved his as TWICE (or three) somewhere round’ there. But Noooo He saves her ONCE and suddenly he hates her because she is supposedly ungrateful Mad Lucy I’ll give you ungrateful. Anywho, I HOPE Mike doesn’t know where she is. Sorry but honestly I ship the whole Paulo x Lucy thing. 8-) But these pages are killing me don’t get me wrong D: I wanna know wtf is going on and why mike has this “O.O OH ****” face. huehuehue<3 :-*

My guess and or hope. When Jordan uttered the words “I don’t want to lose my sister.” Mike thought about what his life would be like if she truly was gone from his life, and he can’t handle it. His mind is torn at the thought of Lucy being dead. And all because he finally realizes that he still does have feeling for her.

@RPG Nerd
First thing, you should make a BCB forum account.
NO! Love Stinks by J. Geils Band. That describes BCB. Listen to it and understand.

“You love her <~~~Paulo/Abbey/Augustus/Jessica
But she loves him <~~~Lucy/Daisy
And he loves somebody else <~~~Mike
You just can’t win” <~~~Welcome to BCB

You love her
But she loves him
And he loves somebody else
You just can’t win

And so it goes
Till the day you die
This thing they call love
It’s gonna make you cry

I’ve had the blues
The reds and the pinks
One thing for sure

(Love stinks)
Love stinks yeah yeah
(Love stinks)
Love stinks yeah yeah

(Love stinks)
Love stinks yeah yeah
(Love stinks)
Love stinks yeah yeah

Two by two and side by side
Love’s gonna find you yes it is
You just can’t hide
You’ll hear it call

Your heart will fall
Then love will fly
It’s gonna soar
I don’t care for any casanova thing

All I can say is
Love stinks

(Love stinks)
Love stinks yeah yeah
(Love stinks)
Love stinks yeah yeah

(Love stinks)
Love stinks yeah yeah
(Love stinks)
Love stinks yeah yeah

I’ve been through diamonds
I’ve been through minks
I’ve been through it all
Love stinks

(Love stinks)
Love stinks yeah yeah
(Love stinks)
Love stinks yeah yeah

(Love stinks)
Love stinks yeah yeah
(Love stinks)
Love stinks yeah yeah

Lucy - by Skillet

BornAgain June 7, 2013, 12:23 PM EST.

Comment ID #248011 One Day Too Late by Skillet seems very fitting for this chapter… so far.

Tick tock hear the clock countdown
Wish the minute hand could be rewound
So much to do and so much I need to say
Will tomorrow be too late

Feel the moment slip into the past
Like sand through an hourglass
In the madness I guess I just forget
To do all the things I said

Time passes by
Never thought I’d wind up
One step behind
Now I’ve made my mind up

Today I’m gonna try a little harder
Gonna make every minute last longer
Gonna learn to forgive and forget
‘Cause we don’t have long, gonna make the most of it

Today I’m gonna love my enemies
Reach out to somebody who needs me
Make a change, make the world a better place
‘Cause tomorrow could be one day too late
One day too late
One day too late

Tick tock hear my life pass by
I can’t erase and I can’t rewind
Of all the things I regret the most I do…
Wish I’d spent more time with you

Here’s my chance for a new beginning
I saved the best for a better ending
And in the end I’ll make it up to you, you’ll see
You’ll get the very best of me

Your time is running out
You’re never gonna get it back
Make the most of every moment
Stop saving the best for last
