Author commentary

Veronica: Hahaha, whoops. We thought we had enough pages uploaded to get us through the week but we were one short! That’s fixed now, as well as for the next couple of weeks. Sorry for the delay, and the errors that came up because of the missing files! 5 days a week is hard.

Doesn’t help that it… kinda looks like we are due for a server upgrade.

We want to email you some comics!

Join the thousands of BCB fans who look forward to an email of cat drama every Monday morning, and we’ll send you a dozen “Ships Ahoy” comic strips, and one every week after that!

We’ll send a link to the comics you missed, straight away.

I’m assuming Jordan meant she was sent away, and the fact that her room is empty kinda supports that… There should be a betting pool about Lucy being at the Hospital or not

Dragnite June 7, 2013, 6:49 PM EST.

Comment ID #248066

Oh. Woah.
An interesting turn of events, right here. I suppose this was what first came to mind when he heard that. Or maybe it was something else…who knows, maybe he went to a hospital emergency place for something else? (Answer: NO.) Makes one wonder why he thought to come here first, though. He had no idea what Jordan meant by that earlier statement. I kinda hope he’s wrong about her being here, though, but at this point, with 11 pages left, it could go either way; her being here or not, I mean.

Oh and are hospitals allowed to tell you where a specific patient is if they haven’t asked for you or you aren’t family? Mike may have a fun (aka not fun) time finding her

Alternately, it could be a psychiatric hospital with an ER. You needn’t be suicidal, I’d think, to be admitted to one.

Its actually Sandy in the hospital, Mike got a text while he was pursuing Jordan. :D and if it is Lucy at least she’s at the hospital, unlike when Abbey got to meet his mom… that would have been far more worthy of all this surprise “mike steps off the bus a the cemetery and walks slowly forward” XD

Comment ID #248088

On the assumption that Lucy is a patient in the hospital.

I’m going to guess Lucy got Cancer from good ol’ Deus ex Machina, because as far as i know, she didn’t show symptoms to any diseases in chapters prior, or ever. There’s also the chance that she just so happened to harm herself, intentionally or otherwise.

Then again, mike could be over reacting about what Jordan meant. Although, i feel the two options everyone was speculating (Boarding School / She’s dead) would make the story suffer. Even though a Dangerous illness or a random injury would come out of left field, I still think it’s a better take than Boarding School or her being suicidal.

Although, showing a hospital could just be a big tease and not where mike is actually going, but we’ll just have to see.

SpookyNoodles June 7, 2013, 7:47 PM EST.

Comment ID #248089

This is all just buildup. The next eleven pages are going to be an intricate blending of suspense and art quality regression. At page 24 we’re going to ditch coloration all together, returning to a hauntingly familiar black and white. The four pages after that will be the most dramatic in Web history, with a plot so dizzyingly intense that we’ll forget what the chapter is supposed to be about. Then all our dreams will come true when Taeshi rereleases “Disaster Dominoes” with remastered illustrations and a revised story line to accommodate cast changes and the plot of the larger story. When this comes to pass, angels shall weep tears of joy and all shall rejoice, for the world will become complete.

Kidding. Definitely kidding. But you have to admit, things have gotten really tense. And with daily updates and a hospital scene impending, I’m sure some crazy things are bound to happen. Obviously not as insane as “Dominoes;” that’s a given, but still pretty crazy, I’m sure. The title is rather apocryphal, after all. At any rate, I’m looking forward to it!

Maybe she got pregnant from the thing with Paulo. Then maybe she fell down when packing for the hospital and could DIE from child birth because she can’t handle it!! OR she might have oh I don’t know CANCER!! :( :(

next page in 65 hours?! uuugggghh (unless that’s an error..)

I’ve been reluctant to read the comments because I don’t wanna assume the worst but this page, man. EMERGENCY ROOM, WHAT THE HELL?
The best possible scenario is that mike guessed wrong and she isn’t actually there, but rather in a different part of the hospital, like a psychiatric ward or anywhere else even. I don’t think that Lucy would try to harm herself, she has yashy and her family there. even then though, I guess it is still possible for her to see only the bad and figure her eternal absence is the best for everyone she cares about.

QAQ but is the next update really that far away?

on a different note, is there roleplay in the forums? I’ve been wanting to try to make friends here so I can fangirl with people who read this. lol my friends aren’t interested in this comic or don’t have the time, so I have to squee by myself. I would draw, but I’m not too good at it, much less with animals.

Comment ID #248100

oh, oh! i think i know(maybe). Mabye,MABYE! lucys mom has developed cancer or somthing like that, and since she will need to be under ubservation and will be vulnerable to diseases then she will need to send them to live with relitives, but that semi happy scenario dosn’t quit fit. mabye she has a potentialy terminal illness and jordan is worried about being sepperated through addoption, or through living with differant relitives. i’ll admit that its a bit out there, but it’s either something along those lines, or mike totally being wrong, or something that those of us who are of a decent sort don’t want to happen.

So now the guy cares enough to do all this?

“I hate you but I’m gonna run to visit you in the Hospital.”

@curtis Your theory isn’t sound because of one thing. Don’t you think Jordan would be bawling his eyes out over his mother, rather than Lucy.

Perhaps the depression has had a negative impact on Lucy’s health? I know when I went through a depressed spell, I didn’t have the will to eat much(though she did eat the cake that Paulo brought her!)
I think Lucy would avoid suicide :) If not for her own sake, then at least for Yashy’s sake!

Jordan said “Lose my little sister”. If I heard that from someone who’s sister is obviously depressed to hell, my first thought would be that she tried to suicide.

Lol you guys. What parent empties the room of their child who is in the hospital because of suicide watch? None.

Does anyone remember the page or so of her family talking about some kind of plan without her?

I also like to think Mike would be entering the hospital like “WHERE’S LUCY” and everyone’s like “what”
And then Mike goes back to Jordan super mad and says “YOU SAID SHE WAS AT THE HOSPITAL!”

Comment ID #248131

Yeah you dudes.
“I don’t want to lose my little sister” doesn’t equate to “she’s barely staying alive through an IV”
Mike is jumping to conclusions. I don’t know why he really cares though. Never really seem to give a damn before and the previous chapter with the play doesn’t prove anything about him just “suddenly” caring about her.
He played her icy when she was soft, always bringing up Sandy right in front of her face, when he damn well knew she still had tender feelings for him. Oh wait, we’re talking about air head here right? I guess his stupidity excuses him from that.

… You know… I would have at least asked if she’d tried to kill herself before running to a hospital, because not wanting to lose Lucy could be taken many different ways.

And then, if it is a suicide attempt… Asking which hospital might be a good plan…

Comment ID #248145

SO MUCH GOING ON. The stuff Lucy’s mom said… the empty room Paulo saw… Jordan being so emotional… The teacher looking depressed… Lucy on top of that building before (which means something symbolically, I think, even if she maintained that she wasn’t going to do anything)… and now Mike’s snap realization that may or may not be true. The first two point to her moving out—boarding somewhere? But we have all these darker hints. One thing’s for sure, I can’t wait until we get a page with Lucy so we can all breathe a sigh of relief (or tragically gasp). Taeshi, you are a master of suspense.

@Gabba If thats the case then why is all her stuff gone? Oh they just decided to sell it all because she was at the hospital. They’ll buy it all back later. :/ :smirk: 8-) If you have an explanation for that too, it would be great if you would upload it.

Is it possible she became bulimic? or whatever the depression induced equivalent is. I KNOW that stress sometimes results in vomitting and though she ate the cake Paulo brought (she said she didn’t want it to go to waste but… ) it might still have been a problem. I mean she threw up right at the start of the problem and being a skinny cat already we might not notice fast.
Anyone, this is one of the few reasons I can see her being at the hospital, not that I doubt Taeshi(and person whose name I can’t remember) could come up with a better one.

A lot of speculation going on, wish I could add my own to the mix but I honestly can not think of a reason why Lucy would be at the hospital and why her room would be completely emptied. The first points toward potential suicide attempt or admittance to a psychiatry ward, both of which are possible, Lucy has been in a bad place for quite a bit now. But the second implies a more permanent relocation that hospitalization just does not seem to mesh with.

On that note Mike did seem to rush to the local hospital pretty quickly, does he even know that she is there? In any case its nice to see he still cares about her despite past outbursts.

i guess Mike got his wish come true after all :/ and that is that Lucy would die or vanish forever… i think he regret pwetty much now 8D
not that i believe she is dead, but the emergency??
it is possible that she’s not there and it is false alarm again like when she stood on the tall building, or that something horrible happened…or that she just moved away..

Lucy, why?

You knew what was happening with everything. Even Mike finally said that he was wrong. Wasn’t that what you wanted? Didn’t you want Mike to finally start talking to you again? Sure, your relationship will never be the same again. And it shouldn’t be. Ever. Not after what you guys went through.

But bonds between real friends are strong, even when they’re ripped apart and stuck back together. You have people to talk to, Lucy. People you can trust with your secrets. Sue, Daisy, hell, even a few of the guys like Abbey wouldn’t open their mouth if you just talked to them, one-on-one. You shouldn’t have to face the world alone. I know what it means to feel completley without someone to talk to. But you have to make a concerted effort to find someone. Or eventually, you’ll break.

Please, Lucy. Don’t break. Just don’t do it. I couldn’t bear to read this without you in it. I may sound like an idiot now, but I’ve become attached to many of you, even if you are just drawn characters. And Lucy, you’ve gone through a lot. But don’t leave us. Don’t leave your friends. Please.

…. well, the “Emergency” sign should have me worried, but… this is Bad Luck Mike we’re talking about, he’ll probably go in there, ask about Lucy, freak out and then some nurse will tell him there’s no “Lucy” there. He’ll publicly embarrass himself, then he’ll come back and Jordan will explain what REALLY happened…..

I highly doubt it was an attempt at suicide. Families don’t empty the bedrooms of those who have tried. Not good ones, anyway. My guess is that she’s being distanced from the problems by staying with a family member or someone close to one. Perhaps to get a new perspective at everything.

I wouldn’t call it running away from an issue, but surfacing above it to breath for a while.

Awghhh I really hope nothing really bad happened…
not for Lucy but for Mike

For once he let out all his frustration and, if Lucy really did do something ot herself, it’ll just be so unfair to him

All teenagers are jerks at some point, but that doesn’t make them bad people— we’ve all been there, lets be honest, and I’ll say this again— Mike held in his emotions far too long and that causes a catastrophic outburst from him
I really hope Lucy is a strong and independant woman that DON’T NEED NO MAN deep down, and that Mike’s assumption of her being in the hospital is all wrong (maybe I’m even wrong in assuming the “emergency” thing is a hospital and that’d make it even better ahaha)

Ok. Ok.
So. Mike assumed she was in the emergency ward.
However, why would her family PLAN to send her there? Nobody plans on having a child attempt suicide.
Mike is gonna walk in and ask where she is, or he’ll run around looking for her. He won’t find her. He’ll freak out. Then she’ll show up. And maybe she was in a psychiatric ward, but not in an immediate, intensive care unit for attempted suicides.
And then.
He will yell at her. “I THOUGHT YOU WERE DEAD!”
And then he’ll cry. And she’ll be mad that he found her, so she’ll comfort him with the same aggrivated “I’m sorry” that he comforted her with all those chapters ago.
Oh Acapulco.

So I really don’t think she’s in the hospital.. I mean, if she is she is, but that’s definitly not what my first guess would’ve been. Because really! If it’s “all Mike’s fault” wouldn’t it have to be an attempted suicide? Lucy may have been unstable, but she didn’t seem to be going down that path. And I doubt they’d put a depressed teenager in there for being a danger to themselves… They’d have a much bigger hospital if that was the case. I guess she could be there to visit a psychiatrist? But I really thought she was moving? Then Jordan would have “lost his sister” and it would explain her room being all packed up. It’s also a good explanation for why this is all Mike’s fault that she’s gone.

You know, I think it’s very possible they moved her into a home. Her entire family saw her and probably wanted to help.

They moved her stuff out so that she would feel at home while she got help. She needs help. Everyone knows that. She honestly needed help before Mike said all the nasty things that made her crack on the inside.

My thoughts for those who say she couldn’t be in a psych ward of have tried committing suicide/gotten hurt, however unlikely some of those options are, because her room was empty, is that it might be that they planned on sending her somewhere else to begin with, but then something happened very recently. After all, she was fine at the play, which was very recent, and now suddenly she’s gone. But they wouldn’t have emptied the room just then…it was probably a work in progress, or they emptied it earlier. THEN something happened to Lucy leading to the current situation. The alternative is that she’s fine and just moving away, and Mike’s in the wrong place, but it would probably be weird to have her be somewhere else at this point, I think.

Your fan,

Edit: I think she’s dying, maybe of disease or something and rather than stay at the hospital she went to school to be with friends and now she’s in critical condition. (Though when she refused, at the time, I had only thought up that she was soon going to die, or maybe move away.)

I still have no idea what’s going on. Literally none of the options make complete sense. If she’s dying, how is any of this Mike’s fault. If she’s moving away, how is any of this Mike’s fault, especially considering the “do I have any say in this” thing? If she’s in the psych ward, it could be Mike’s fault, but why is all her stuff gone then? Nothing makes any sense anymore!

Hmm. Maybe Lucy had attempted to commit suicide. And when Jordan said “It’s all your fault, ya know.” He was speaking about her friends in general. Not just Mike. Maybe Jordan though her friends should have attempted to try and help her more, or have been nicer to her. That would at least explain why he was so cold to them when they were outside his door, and why he “Doesn’t want to lose his sister.” I’m pretty confident she’s okay though. The plot would be much more dramatic if she survived.

@Dr.Rockit: In response to 8, what are you talking about? Tess isn’t in the same year as Lucy so she wouldn’t be in the same classes so she wouldn’t have a clue she stopped attending that school, hence why she is not in this chapter so far. She was a key character in Ten Seconds to Midnight which was only about one and a half chapters ago and she has no reason to be faded out. I’m sure she’ll reappear near the end of this chapter or in the next chapter depending on what occurs.

There is another possibility. They could have been in the middle of moving and her leaving her friends was too much for her, she DID attempted suicide and not is in the hospital. Most likely in critical condition, but now to the point that she will die. Mike will find out how bad her depression has gotten due to this harsh commits, making him realize how badly he mistreated her and he wants to make up for his attitude. Mostly likely he will fall into depression himself and spend everyday by her side at the bed, regretting his actions that cause this to go to far.

If I’m understanding this, Mike tried to sever all ties with Lucy, because he cares about her, but also cares about Sandy, and as such won’t admit that he cares about Lucy, and subconsciously took Sandy’s messages as a way to break away from his *uncomfortable?* relationship with Lucy. Then when something happens to her, his emotions leap forwards once again, and now he’s jumping to the worst possible conclusions he can think of about Lucy, and just wants to get her back. 8-D He’s completely hopeless with his own emotions, we know that, and now he is being, as Lucy would have put it, an idiot. Because in his attempts to feel secure in his personal world, he only made things worse, as per usual Mike. And so the drama continues.

:question: If he’s at the ‘Emergency’ room, I just sort of wonder. What if she’s not there? There is tons of possibilities first off, and the only one he thinks of is ‘She’s at the hospital.’ D:
But what if she’s not? She could be somewhere else, like in a ward, which I doubt she’ll go to easily, or maybe out of town ‘forever’, or at least somewhere differently like at a relative’s(?), but the main reason I’m wondering about( :x) is where is Sam and her mother?

It’s most likely her mother went somewhere, but what about Sam? He could’ve been somewhere with Lucy at the time and did something about it. :O

Honestly I’m just surprised that Mike was able to block Jordan’s punch so easily…

If this arc ends with Mike doing a tearful bedside declaration of love I am going to be super-mega-******

Actually a rather possible (were looking in the almost whole percent range!) possibility is that Lucy was moving in with a relative/brother/family friend and slipped/tripped/jumped or some how fell down that waterfall. She is now going to die in mikes arms just like he almost died in hers creating a self fulfilling ending with Mike ending up killing her through a waterfall-related incident (3rd times charm). This would explain the hospital and the empty room as well as Jordans reaction to Mike. (honestly if Lucy has to die at least this would make a lot of sense in regards to the back story… although that would mean there would be about 5-6 pages of mike and friends crying)

I have to say that I just really appreciate that you’re working so hard to post so often, especially since this is a bit of a cliffhanger arc where we’re constantly on the edge :) So thank you! And thank you for all of the hard work you have done and will continue to do for us!

Ok my last comment I forgot to mention she probably isn’t dead but most likely just sick because when you get dperessed you typically don’t wan to eat more then you need to so she is probably really skinny and and frail also her room is empty because she WAS moving away but then she got sick
I am going to guess she got sick with either a horrible disease or something awefull but not serious maybe like pneumonia( but not in this pneumonia woundnt work its jut an example) but they haven’t diagnosed her yet so they don’t know and think it is some lethal sickness or something

Maybe she’s there for depression and what if she stopped taking care of herself (not eating, sleeping ect.).
Then again Mike might be wrong and she’s not there, or the strangest thing is getting shots and a check up before leaving to wherever she’s going

Hopefully we find out everything soon :p

Anyone else find it odd that there are humans on the bus? I was under the impression that the bscb universe was all animals…. must be a interesting place to live.

Aw man, I love living on the west coast 8) updates at 10am!
I really hope mike doesn’t find a lucy that has attempted suicide.. my idea is that there is a psyciatric ward in that hospital where lucy is seeing a shrink. In either case I hope sam beats the daylights out of mike :3

I found out why she’s in the Hospital! (I think)

Lucy was throwing up, when Mike said that he hated her. I think that she got sick, after that. There are other theories, such as suicide, or someone else (improbable), but I can’t see Lucy committing suicide- just not her style, if anything else. And Lily did say “She’s not coming back. That’s what you wanted, right?” I’m not sure, though.

” “Maybe it’ll be fixed if she just died”

Those were your words, Mike. Next time, be more careful with what you wish for. ”

ALL OF MY GOD DAMN YES! Any people sympathising with Mike here should REMEMBER THAT DAMNED STATEMENT. That’s the worst thing I’ve ever seen anyone say in this entire comic, and given how much drama happens, that’s saying something! (I of course, mean that in the nicest possible way. XD)

I think maybe that she attempted suicide but is injured at the hospital, or she stayed out in the snow too long that time, and got ill then.

Maybe Lucy was transferred to another home for rehabilitation if she gets out of the hospital so she wouldn’t have the stress of her old life to drive her back to suicide if thats what this was.
