My guesses (writing this before the update):
1. Jordan opens the door slightly and tells them to go away.
2. The gang leaves, sad and disgruntled.
3. Lucy appears out of nowhere but doesn’t do anything.
4. Paulo cries.
5. Everyone dies as a volcano erupts underneath their feet.

Let’s see how I did…

Well ****, that’s not good. To be honest, though, I feel that there are very few possibilities as to what might have happened. Firstly, and least likely, Lucy committed suicide. It would explain why her room has become the void, but they would usually announce something like that. Secondly, Lucy is going to go live with another family member. This would explain why the teacher didn’t say specifically what happened, but they usually wouldn’t tear apart the room in this situation. Lastly, she could be going to a boarding school. This would also explain why the teacher didn’t say anything, but there is no reason why they would destroy her room. Basically, there are a few choices I can think of, but they all have a fatal flaw. I’m probably wrong though. It wouldn’t be the first time and it most certainly wont be the last.

i wonder what the group will do now that shes gone.

maybe Paulo will wait at the door until someone explains everything even though the rest of the gang left…

or they will beat the crap out of Mike or alienate him, which has to happen sooner or later lol

Guys. If Lucy was dead, I honestly doubt her family would clean out her room.
I have yet met a single parent that cleans their lost child’s room after death.

Sorry, but I’m chancing on that they’re moving/have moved. Perhaps there are few things left to pick up which is why Jordan is still there.

Yumikarp May 24, 2013, 12:23 AM EST.

Comment ID #246456

At least she has one more thing in common with Sandy now:
They both have distance between Mike and themselves.

Maybe this will give Mike more time to figure out his feelings? Because I saw when they were on stage, and she sang, he still had feelings for her.

Two sayings pop into my mind as I type this:
“The more two fight, the more they like/love each other in the end.”
“Distance makes the heart grow fonder”

I think this is what happened with Sandy and it might happen with Lucy.
That is my hope anyway.

Hmm, I seem to notice a box and a vacuum cleaner in what was once Lucy’s room. Yeah, I’m going to say that Lucy has been moved from her room and that she is still alive. Sue trying to be the voice of reason, but Paulo is not going to wait any longer. Too bad he doesn’t get what he wants… a chance to see Lucy again.

For a another conspiracy theory maybe lucy got sent off to live with Zachary (I think that was his name… you know… the guy on the island). That would sufficiently remove her from the epicenter of the action without killing her or having to introduce a host of new characters. If she was sent to live with Zachary then maybe they could visit her someday.

Or maybe she is just dead, in which case where is Augustus to make some comment about how pathetic is is she died

While other ships seem to be sinking, my LucyXHappiness ship seems to be nowhere in sight. Did it sink? Will it sail? NOBODY KNOOOWS! :O

I’d like to think it’s in for repairs. It took quite a beating, but it’s not impossible to fix. And I’d like to think that someday that ship will sail.

In other words, I think Lucy’s alive. And I don’t care where she’s gone, as long as she can find happiness and confidence there.

GingerPaws May 24, 2013, 1:23 AM EST.

Comment ID #246470

Probably sounds kinda lame, but it is truly disheartening to see that Lucy has not only left Roseville High…but her home. Lucy’s friends, left behind squandering for an answer, are now left at the mercy of her family on revealing her whereabouts and if/when she will come back.

This group of friends will likely never be the same, as the chapter title suggests. The loss of Lucy will soon have a ripple effect in their lives. And whether or not you believe that Mike is to blame for triggering this chain of events, or that Lucy was inevitably headed down this course of needing to be removed from her environment for therapy, every one of Lucy’s friends will feel some degree of guilt at the possibility that they might have been able to prevent her departure. That guilt will probably be rationalized by turning to blaming one another.

I am apprehensive, yet curious as to how the fallout of Lucy’s absence will change the group. Sometimes in life you take friends for granted. You don’t notice the impact of someone’s presence on your life until they are gone. Is Lucy’s disappearance the black hole in the center of this circle of friends? As soon as somebody is able to pull truth out of Mike, you might just want to put this group on life support.

Reading some of the comments has got me very confused. Specifically, people speculating that because Mike told Lucy that her friends would leave her, she disappeared so she could leave them before they left her.
Now, hold on! Lucy didn’t have a choice, remember? This is an intervention planned by her family for her well-being. Besides, Lucy’s not like that! Her friends mean a lot to her. She wouldn’t abandon them just because she thinks they’ll leave her.

And one more thing? Lucy’s family planned this a while ago. But they just now left. So why’d they stay for a bit longer, if Lucy wasn’t even going to school?

Sue’s play.

Lucy could have just left, and expected Sue to find a new actor. She didn’t want to be in the play in the first place, and she certainly didn’t want to sing on stage. But she did. She stayed because Sue means that much to her.

TL;DR: Lucy didn’t abandon them, and certainly not for fear of abandonment.

SOGx-ray May 24, 2013, 1:41 AM EST.

Comment ID #246475

I feel…worried, to be honest. Very worried.
I’m worried that Lucy committed suicide. I thought I could alleviate that by looking at your projected end date (2014 according to the About page, but I recognize that this is merely speculation), but despite how far away a year or so seems, it’s actually only 156 more pages give or take (if each chapter is 30 pages long, that’s ~5.2 chapters).
But if I’m being over-analytic with that, what happened? Lucy looked happy at the end of the play, seemingly.
And if she did die, how would the others react? I find it pretty difficult to believe that Paulo wouldn’t react with anger towards Mike, and who knows what the others might do.
I just get a bad feeling, is all.

yea I’m still pretty sure they sent her to depression therapy, they might have had to keep her hospitalized? I don’t know too much about these things so…someone help or expand on this please?
Anyway, the teacher seemed like she knew something was wrong. a kid moving to a new school would most likely be announced, yet she kept the reason quiet as far as we know. also, her family might have come to this conclusion to send her there, but of course the kid wants to have a say. she would have said “at least let me complete the play.” and so I stand by what I’ve said in the other pages. -stops rambling and gets much needed sleep-

Oh my stars, people is so dramatic.

Lucy is not dead and she isn’t gone forever. I’m willing to bet money on that. She might be gone a chapter or two (or she can still show up somehow in this chapter,) but she’s not gone permanently. We might even see some chapters of her where she isn’t with the “group,” but eventually I’m sure the plots would join together again when the time is right.

So anyways, like a said before, Lucy is a huge part of the comic’s plot; Too much of the drama surrounds her, too many questions relating to her are unanswered, and there is too much that can still happen between now and when this comic ends. So even if by some slim chance this character is meant to die, I truly doubt it would be so soon.

So honestly people, stop being so dramatic.

(Oh, and one last thing: I doubt Lucy’s family would be so cruel as to clean out her room so quickly after her death, had she (Lucy) committed suicide. WHICH SHE DIDN’T! That would be like “oh look, Lucy died. Lets get rid of all her sh*t so we can forget she ever existed =DDDD.” Yeah, I think not. )

Frankly, what we must make absolutely clear is that Lucy is not dead, she’s propably resting in one of her majesty’s asylums for the mentally ill.
Furthermore, we clearly have to make sure that Lucy’s “dissapearance” won’t become an obstacle in our efforts to lower the national deficit.

Paulo is doing some crazy things when he’s in love, but as he reaches the window it seems too late. Only a box and a vaccum cleaner are whats left in a near empty room. Maybe Paulo will see Lucy pick up the last box or someone else will and Paulo might or might not find the answer he is looking for.

I think I know what happened. remember in Chapter 73, page 12, 4th panel where she says “why does everyone have to decide what’s best for me?!” Her parents decided since she was all depressed and gloomy hanging around mike, they wanted her to go to another school, and since she didn’t wanna go, they sent her away to probably somewhere where she’ll stay for a long time, probably until college, or even after college, but hey, it’s my theory

If Lucy was being sent to a hospital or mental institution they wouldn’t have had to pack up her whole room. The same goes with a boarding school. And though Lucy was depressed, she wasnt bad enough to be put away by her family. And again, if Lucy was being sent to a mental hospital she wouldn’t have taken her room with her.

She most likely was sent to stay with a relative or something, or she moved in with her dad. For all we know her whole family is moving (since we only saw her room and not the rest of the house.)

Comment ID #246518

Haha well ok,
1. Lucy’s house is literally a tower. Absolutely featureless and slim as a stick with one window way up high. And no trees nearby either! Big and empty and completely….unrealistic.
(this could be intentional as a Rapunzel parallel but considering that Mike’s room was giant and empty when he was -supposed- to be living in it, I’m chalking this up to not thinking through backgrounds and locations at all)
2. I know Paulo’s a “”cat”” (double quotes because only his head and tail is a cat’s), but not even cats can climb a sheer brick wall. That’s just silly. And by silly I mean stupid.

Like, if you wanted to show a mildly realistic way for Paulo to get up to Lucy’s room, just pick a house with a front porch and therefore a nice low roof in front. Or just a tree nearby to climb. Both would also serve to make Lucy’s house less freakin’ weird. Not that difficult…

The spaces between the bricks are wide enough to let Paulo fix his paws on.

oh, whatever… mike was always the one being ninja-like in the past, his scarf only added to it, i remember when a lot more people supported mike for being badass, now everyone has moved on to paulo, even though he is the furthest thing from a badass that anyone could POSSIBLY be. :/

that is pretty much a flat brick wall, i doubt paulo could get his claws into it and climb it so easily, if at all… i doubt a freaking tiger or lion could even dig into that wall, let alone a housecat who is overly vain and perverted, not to mention weak beyond belief.

veronica, you’re trying WAY too hard to make paulo out to be cool, or even decent… it looks pathetic… unfortunately, since 98% of your fanbase are idiots, of course they’re gonna love paulo for it… it really is depressing seeing how far humankind has fallen. ._.

oh well, maybe you’ll come to your senses and have paulo fall and paint the sidewalk with his blood and guts… i like to hold on to hope that some people will realize their mistakes and correct them. :smirk:

@Thanatos You didn’t click the link, did you. Cats, even house cats, are perfectly capable of scaling walls with little or no easy footholds. Also, as a Paulo fan myself, I find it very offensive that you accuse us, as well as most of the BCB fanbase idiots. When people do this, they do not look smart, they look bitter and rude, and you are no exception. Wishing misfortune on a character because you don’t like them as much as another is petty, and I am ashamed of you.

She’s moving…if it’s not still close enough for them to hang around each other… *readies Landkreuzer P 1500 Monster and chainsaw*
If Lucy is to become a tragic case or just a secondary character never to be seen again (at least not for a long time), the next tragic case will be you. BCB’s new story designer? Me. Artist? I’m sure my girlfriend could figure out the style.

Lucy’s room is not demolished/ripped apart/destroyed. That’s a Vacuum cleaner and a box, and some little pieces of trash on the ground… just like when a normal person moves out all their furniture. :P

@nikita actually i think lucy ran away, that would explain just about everything, because htey tore the room apart looking for her, teh teacher wouldnt specify why shes leaving! its just a guess, but if i called iit ima laugh in your face AHAAHAHAH! so yea, cant argue with logic!

Perhaps Lucy or her mother is only doing some cleaning, let’s imagine what will happen if Paulo breaks into the room from the window (or somewhere else, like roof) and meets Lucy (or even Sam) then surprise her (or annoy him) …

Ask again, what “$20” for?

Wait, this leaves me with a question… If at the end of the last chapter, when Mike offered to start things over with Lucy and she said ‘that’d be nice’, BUT she knew she was leaving… does that mean that she was happy to tie up loose ends before she left? Or maybe she felt sort of a malicious satisfaction that Mike wouldn’t be able to fix his mistake now that he’s seen how much he hurt her?

My guesses are that either she changed her mind and accepted the singing agent dude’s offer to become a famous singer and left without telling her friends or that she went to live with a relative of her family and didn’t telling the others about it.
