Hah! Hah hah hah hah! This is going to be fun to watch. He’s even doing that several panel freeze frame that people tend to do in this comic after something like that happens. She definitely made the right choice though. Those music companies destroy people. Plus, they gain all the profits for other people’s hard work. Though…, I highly doubt he’s willing to take no for an answer, so I’m just going to sit back and wait for Lucy to smack him. Who doesn’t want to see that?
Still think the ‘break up’ thing has to do with Mike’s December promise, since I doubt it could apply to Mike and Sandy. Come on, let’s face it, Mike’s not sorry, we know it, Mike knows it, even Lucy knows it.

You are surprised?
Yes Lucy I agree his smile is irritating.
Oh btw WOOT! Lucy is still in there! I mean she doesn’t like singing for anyone but her pets… oh and Mike.

OK time to look at Mike
In panel 3 he looks upset
Panel 4 he looks normal
Panel 5 He looks worried or confused.

Oh to the whole cast… IF she is you friend you would not be SURPRISED that she denied it!

Back first again? Enjoy it till Thursday night.
I don’t think she will smack him. I am hoping she had matured beyond that, but then again from Mike she have learned the quickest way to get rid of someone is to hit em.

“And these kids are called handcuffs”
I am just pulling your leg XD
I think Mike does… to a degree. Why would he say sorry? He could just ******** with Sandy and make some **** up that she wants to get in his pants or something. But he didn’t
You know that makes me start to think, this chapter COULD have a huge twist where Mike and Sandy end up breaking up because of Lucy. How and Why? I am leaving that up to tasehi ;) That would be hilarious! And Heartwarming. Unless Mike gets mad… :( But still hilarious XD

Actually I have been #1 a lot myself. Lag is the only reason Nikita beat me :nope:

You see any random letters on the top 3 comments?

I never knew that the verb “Party Hard” could also be an emotion, but you learn something new every day.
Also, I was digging today and found a podcast featuring the talented Veronica Vera. I have to say, it’s nice to finally be able to put a voice behind all the author comments.
Lastly, I was super stoked to go meet all my favorite artists this summer at cons. Now that I hear that the author of my favorite angsty cat comic is coming to the U.S., I’m around ultra stoked or something. I can hardly wait to meet everyone.
Also, the guys face is hilarious in the last panel.

the talent scouts eyebrow turns blonde in the last panel. and yea it’s a predictable response from Lucy pity for the scout though, he probably would’ve gotten a good commission for getting her to sign up with the group he works for. hope he doesn’t do anything TOO stupid(cause we all know he’s going to do something stupid at least)

Why is it such a competition to get first comment anyway? I mean, all it does is lag out the servers, so whatever. ANYWAY, what could break-up possibly pertain to? I mean, despite what you say, @Nikita, I believe that Mike truly is sorry for yelling and hurting Lucy, he’s not that much of a dick. Yes, he can be hella oblivious, but he doesn’t deliberately try to hurt people, not unless he thinks he’s right. He knows he wasn’t here. Also, isn’t it a bit weird that the business guy never stated who exactly he was or what company he was from? I mean, maybe that was just done to save time, maybe it was explained and I missed it, but still, if he walked up to me and said that, I would say, “Ehh… Who are you, exactly, and how did you get in here?” Just me. Also, where’s McCain and Jess and David? And more importantly, where’s Amaya? :x

Never did I realize how nostalgic I was for lunchroom antics until Monday’s comic. Let us never speak of a starlet story arc again

Comment ID #245225

lol, textbook Lucy right there. Doing the exact OPPOSITE of what is expected and seeing how people like it (they better like it or she’ll kick them in the shins).
This guy thinks he’s giving off a good pitch or maybe it’s the suit he’s wearing along with his obvious age that makes him think Lucy will bite. He probably thinks she’s like most teenage girls who want to be miss. popular in the spotlight. lol, what a rude awakening he’s gotten.
I love Sue’s series of expressions beginning in panel 3. At first she looks concerned or worried, then her brows straighten in a more curious “huh” kind of fashion, then she shifts an annoyed “wtf” kind of look at the other guy. All the while, Lucy’s expression hasn’t changed at all, obviously inviting the guy to try harder with the notion she won’t be convinced.
You play hard Lucy and some guys like that (*cough* PAULO *cough*), but when you play too hard it just scares and baffles others like this guy (and *cough* MIKE *cough*), ha ha ha!

Only two ways I see this chapter working out. Mike breaking up with Sandy. Or Lucy leaving and the whole group breaks up. Also @TheRealSomeone. Good job with Love and Hatred I am liking how it is going so far. As well as Navel Adventures. And the Pokemon one to.

DekuMarth May 8, 2013, 6:58 AM EST.

Comment ID #245233

Anyone notice Paulo’s eyes in the first panel? His pupils just shrank to dust. If Lucy said yes then the kid might kill himself, especially after breaking up with jasmine.
Speaking of which, it seems everyone is focusing on the obvious couple here. I mean I don’t believe Abby and Daisy will be breaking up, so it just might refer to the group. Mike’s prophetic statement earlier about leaving the lunch table (OMG, a massive big deal for you sophomores out there i guess, #juniorpride) comes to mind. Perhaps the group really will break up… but then again Abby, Daisy, Sue (can’t forget her) would probably prevent that from happening.

Oh, but in light of Mike’s epiphany at the end of the last chapter, him wanting to rebuild his and Lucy’s friendship might just cancel out the above.
Whoop whoop! let’s see what happens!!

@Nikita …you’re an idiot.

why the hell are 98% of the comments just people talking **** about being first and taking the “glory” away from Nikita?

i find it funny that veronica was so ****** about this stuff in the past and had rules against it, yet her loyal *** kissers kept doing it, obviously veronica and oliver’s fans REALLY care about them. :smirk:

anyway, to say something about the comic instead of the countless idiots with no life or goals other than being the first person to comment on something…

while this page is funny, it seems odd to just have this in as a throw away joke, i’m sure this goes somewhere, even if it’s short-lived… then again, who knows, maybe it will only last one or two more pages and prove to be completely pointless. :/

as an extra note… anyone who genuinely wonders why anyone would say “no” in a situation like this, they obviously have no idea what kind of trouble comes with fame, or how you can be used like tool, and how you could possibly even lose everything worth living for.

every single thing you do or feel is announced to the entire world like some major world-changing event, and if it’s anything someone disagrees with, prepare to have your reputation smeared.

people don’t seem to realize that a simple life is all you could ever really want, but humans are so greedy and self-destructive they don’t give a damn… most of them, anyway.

go on, become rich and famous… see how many truly loyal friends you’ll actually gain.

spoilers… none.

Oh! I totally forgot! Mike said he was leaving the table after the play was over! Kew’s comment just reminded me! Could be why we only see the three of them in the first page.

Sure Mike said he still wanted to be friends with Lucy, but what if he finds out what Lucy and Paulo were doing in the make up room? DRAMA!

Everyone looks terrified because they don’t want Lucy to go ;_; but man that guy looks like one of their fathers, someone there, anyone? lol.

woah you’re right about everything (I’m serious).if you could just not insult people, you would be my favourite commenter.
insulting people for their mistakes is useless. if people make mistakes is mostly because of inexperience or a bad mentality, passed from the world they live in (and it’s not the best). insulting a person helps nobody, ‘cause who insults gets hated and the insulted continues behaving like before on purpose, to not give in to him.

I hope I wrote it clearly, it’s difficult to translate the thoughts into another language.

Somehow I had to think of that guy they met on the vacation.

Also I’m still not sure what really happened between Paulo and Lucy.
For some reason I doubt they made out, I have no idea why I have this impression.

…You know, looking back at the last page, I should’ve realized that the producer guy was introduced in a hilariously stereotypical and “no relevance to the plot” kind of way. He didn’t even give his name or who he worked for. It’s so obvious that he wasn’t something integral to the plot, yet I totally missed it. XD

Oh Lucy, exactly what I expected from you, but that guys expression. Priceless. Very eloquently done Taeshi, the expressions on this page speak volumes more than any dialogue could have.

No one should have expected her to accept such an offer. She wouldn’t even sing for Zach, so why would she consider singing as a career and being a star? Lucy isn’t looking for attention and limelight, which is one of the things I really like about her character. She isn’t out to be Miss. Popular, she just wants her small set of friends whom she can trust.

I hope that guy doesn’t try to press his luck. He’ll be in for a rude awakening if he tries to pressure her. Though I don’t think she will get physically violent unless it was absolutely necessary, the days of lashing out physically are pretty much behind her now. I doubt this guy will become very important to the plot, but I think her own family would try and coax her into maybe trying it out to see how it goes… But that illumination is for another day.

Just thought of something, talent scouts are usually multi faceted. In other words one scout will look for talent in multiple areas (music, dance, modeling) to keep revenues coming in. What if this is also the same scout that picked up Sandy. I don’t know how that would play into the story, but it’s just something to mull over. I mean what if Sandy gave him a tip off about the play? It’s far fetched, but it would explain why a random scout was at a high school play (still scratching my head on that one, talent scouts don’t check high school plays, they usually watch amateur theater for talent in music and acting).

(also i’m saying talent scout because him being a producer is even more far fetched, producers usually send out scouts and don’t search for talent on their own, unless he was a former talent scout then that’d make sense).

@TheRealSomeone. Read new chapter of Navel adventures and I have to ask. Did you model this version of Mike after me? Because a.) Personality, I can be an ******* if I want to be but most of the time I try to be a nice guy, that is what I get from this Mike anyway. b.) He kicks ***, reminds me of my seventh grade year. 8-) and my last reason, he actually cares about what his team/crew thinks, I always disliked Navel officers of the era because the rarely listened to their crew and mostly just did whatever they wanted, which led to the pirate revolt of 1715.

I tried to base it off of Mike… if it is like you that is pure accident. I don’t know you personally so it would be very hard for me to write about you.

He is an *******(in my fanfic). I told you earlier he is a bad ***. He actually does what he wants. He doesn’t really care too much for anyone’s opinion.

I had seen something strange in the last two pages… if it is supposed that Paulo and Lucy are “dating”, why Paulo stands far from Lucy?? why Paulo is not “upset” that Mike is so near to Lucy?

Something fishy is going on here… :/

Question for the author:
Why are all the dogs so idiotic (flower girl doesn’t count)?
It’s hilarious, and it matches how dogs in real life behave, but I just want to know from you.

Should I post this on “Ask Roseville High”, or is that just for the characters?

I don’t seet that strange, since they already started to talk, I would expect something like that, but as I can tell… if you like someone, you made notice your feelings, and there were some kind of aceptance… you at least try to be near an nice.

Well, that’s just an opinion, but as I can see, you start to see what I mean.

Just because they came to terms, doesn’t mean Mike actually likes her. He just started to feel bad or he realized he was ****ed. Plus Sandy put him up to it. Now he could be super sincere, but he ****en tore her to pieces because he hated her. It is still a little hard to believe his hate just died like that, especially hate has been building for years.
I am a MikexLucy shipper so I am loving the ‘bonding’ they are doing :) and hope it continues.
I am also(sadly) hoping the Mike clawing the wall happens in this chapter…

@TheRealsomeone. About your last chapter in Love and Hatred. What the hell just happened :question: seriously I though you were against that I could barely read that last bit of that chapter, It creept the hell outa me(shivers) D:. I mean that chapter was kinda disturbing. Seriously that was your most disturbing chapter by far. All most as ****ed up as “I Deserve a Hell Lot Worse” vr. 1. It was perhaps the creepiest and the second most ****ed up. This is the only chapter I dislike, version one of I Deserve A Hell Lot Worse I plain hated it. Other than that it was a bonding experience that they needed to have, but try again three years latter :nope: not at that age horrible timing, I am not kidding you could have planned it better, but at least it did not end as bad as I thought it would. I mean I love your story but I have to be real with you, throwing in a chapter like that at random is kinda, I don’t know, forced. But as I said still my favorite story and that will never change. Unless something seriously ****ed up happens.

The original was worse.
I think it is confusing the it keeps to her saying fine than the rest happens 4 hours later which I doesn’t seem like it does it? He is a hormonal teenage! It’s a nightmare because as he said it would never let it happen. I am sorry you didn’t like the chapter, but it was rather fun to write. Despite it was almost 3.5k, I plan to have the next chapter up tomorrow. I am on a roll! Soon…

Sad thing is this Pokemon one is almost a chore to write. I had a lot of good ideas, but now they are gone. Perhaps because I am too busy writing this 1k+ page fanfic. Don’t even think about asking me to post it because the credits would be more than 10 pages. And it crosses over 20+ stories. I love writing it. It has action, romance, and many copyrights ignored XD

haha oh my. why do they all look so surprised anyway? maybe since zach was a poopy music producer, and this guy is “a well known” one? (x

silveryogurt May 9, 2013, 4:39 AM EST.

Comment ID #245307

So surprising, but it is not such a confusing reply
if it is made by Lucy.
If Lucy doesn’t say “No.”, that is no less strange, since she is Lucy.

I think there can be three different possible reasons:
1. Lucy thinks that it is not suitable for her to be go to work at the moment.
2. She dislikes working with those music producers.
3. Sandy is a young model, Lucy wants to be different.

Doctor Nuclear May 9, 2013, 6:45 AM EST.

Comment ID #245308

@Doctor Nuclear: Why aren’t these in your list of possible reasons why Lucy would say no?

A)She doesn’t like singing in front of big crowds unless it is absolutely necessary.
B)She just started being friends with Mike again so why would she leave?
C)Paulo would be devastated because they finally have a chance to make their “relationship” work.
D)Lucy just doesn’t give a damn.

I’d go with option E)B and D only.

@Everyone: Is it wrong that the animation with Daisy all the way at the top made me giggle when I first saw that Daisy passed by Paulo and is walking towards Augustus? More heartbreak will follow on her journey to the mall… go Daisy you can make it 8-D.

Sue’s never been so serious, especially in the last panel. She was just too moody in the last chapter, —If she was not annoyed, she was on the way to be annoyed.
Mike is getting totally puzzled, especially in the last two panels.

Yes, the option B) and D) are really very possible.
—I start a new user name, it is much cooler than the old one.

Welcome back to the commenters :)
Yes I would say B is probably the #1 reason. I think A has a huge affect has well. D makes me sad :( Not sad she said no, but sad if that is the reason.

@TheRealSomeone. I don’t hate the chapter, I actually liked it till the near end, just saying two things, one it could have been planned better, and two it was a bad time to have that happen to a fifteen year old kid. Also I think I have found out were my mini fan fic is going to go so I will try to post next part/chapter next BCB update, hopefully tonight at mid night.

I like this new Lucy. She seems more level-headed and in control of herself now. My only concern is whether whatever state she is in is healthy for her.

We know so precious little about her recent mental state, we can’t really pass judgement on it one way or the other.

RandomPhrases May 9, 2013, 2:26 PM EST.

What do you mean better planned? A bad time for ‘that’ to happen? What do you mean by ‘that’? I don’t think you can answer that without spoiling, but if you can I would be happy.

TheRealSomeone(akaSomeone May 9, 2013, 3:54 PM EST.

Mike looks genuinely surprised at his offer, while Paulo looks aghast. Kinda like…’What take her away from me? Aw hell no!’. Sue just looks really freaking skeptical, like ‘Who the hell is this weirdo GTFO.’. And again, it breaks my heart to see Lucy’s eyes so dead, without any light, compared to everyone else. :( YOU RUINED HER MIKE FOREVER YOU SUCK.
