Oh yeah. Even Jess is here. She must not be taking it too well either.
Oh Daisy. You certainly are a Daisy.

Paulo’s like “you should have listened to the posters lol”
Daisy’s like “hope the sugar can make this better”
Everyone else is like “wat”

She should go get some magnums instead. (The edible one and the not edible one. )

Hey Sue’s face somehow looks different to me.

Daisy is so sweet. Obviously she’s not doing too hot right now either, but she’s putting her own feelings aside to try and cheer everyone up.

What’s wrong with them? Friend is gone, so? Don’t forget her, that’s all.
But noooo… Everyone can’t even TRY to cheer up. It seems that they don’t even care… Don’t care that Daisy tries to make everyone a little bit happy, to show that life doesn’t end because Lucy in hospital.

Comment ID #253887

At least she’s trying! Poor Jess seems really dejected… Paulo’s trying to be appreciative towards Daisy’s efforts… interesting that Rachel’s here, I wonder how that will go down.
Also yay for Sue being around, she’s my favourite character outside of the main 4. Up there with David.

Also, I really like the touch with the plastic cups being balanced on top of the orange soda.

Comment ID #253888

Wow, um the perspective of the 3rd panel, Mike looks so small compared to Abby, it throws the page off a bit. Also @Hnnnng Hey, way to go …tsk “xdgdzg”

Honestly, what did Daisy expect…throwing a party and one of their friends not being there? Then again Lucy has missed out on parties before. Uh-oh there’s Rachel must be really awkward for Paulo right now.

Huh. It seems to me that the only people who aren’t (as) visibly torn up about recent events are David and Rachel. The two dogs of the group. IT’S A CONSPIRACY, I TELLS YA!
Also, is it just me, or does Abbey look friggin’ huge? Like, against Mike, he seems about twice his size.
But yeah, study party. With a bunch of sad, depressed people. THERE IS NO CONCEIVABLE WAY THIS COULD POSSIBLY FAIL. 8-D

Comment ID #253902

@Oceanus92 It’s not just you Abby is indeed rather large compared to certain characters, it makes the room look rather cramped and compact.
@Taeshi Okay, it’s just wow, I didn’t realize how huge he was and comparing him to the things besides characters in my head as well. I’m just wow “Abby lay off the growth stuff” lol I hope you didn’t find my comment offensive or anything. I just tend to observe things being an artist myself.

I do hope things pick up or at least possibly after the freakout Paulo has with Rachel at the “party” and he runs out in tears.
Everyone is like “what the heck” while Rachel just says with a smile “Whaaat? Nothing happened this time!”
lol I would like to see that happen but poor would still be on a guilt trip.

Amber July 17, 2013, 1:14 PM EST.

lol how can those plastic glasses (do you call them this way?) not fall? they aren’t leaning on the bottle!

also abbey looks at jessica and thinks “why is she that sad?” lol

p.s. apple sells overpriced products that sell (most of the times) only for their appearance and design, and because “it’s cool to have it” (bleah). steve jobs said that he wanted to make a “thermonuclear war” against android. whoever wants wars of any type is a despicable person. end of the story.

@Eski: I don’t even think they know what Mike really did yet. Heck, they might not even know that Lucy is in the hospital. All we know for sure that they know is that she’s moving away.

Rachel seems to be the only one who has just zero ****s given. She’ll probably begin to feel a little more sympathetic now that Jess is broken up about Lucy leaving, though.

Also, I like how Tess, Jess, and Rachel can all be in a room together now without clawing at each other’s throats

Oh my Goodness, I don’t angry feel angry with Daisy anymore. She looks like she really means well throwing a study party. See? Soda, it’s a sign of friendship if you share it. That’s legit adorable, that worried smile. Poor rest of the guys are wondering what to do though, it’s gonna feel like something is missing from stuff like this for a long time. Tread carefully, Daisy. Don’t say or do something that that you aren’t 100 percent sure is okay to say to these guys.

Tess and Jessica in the same room… and not fighting? Well, now we KNOW some sh*t is gonna go down. :nope:

Poor Jessica… she looks so sad, moping in the corner by herself… and then there’s Sue and Mikey. Sue just… I don’t think a Sue should look that sad. EVER. :( And Mikey just looks like he’s thinking, “I crapped everything up.” Which he kinda did, but I mean… it wasn’t ALL his fault, right? :unsure:

And then there’s Daisy. Oh, Daisy, you are such a sweetheart! HOW CAN PEOPLE NOT LOVE YOU?! Furious Abbey But no, Daisy is trying really hard, and I get the feeling someone’s going to freak on her just because they can’t handle the emotional strain as well as she can. For pity’s sake, she can deal with ABBEY’S ANGST! And his angst is like a bottomless pit of depression threatening to swallow up anyone that goes near it! D:

Daisy, unless you’ve gotten some Vodka or Rum to go with that, I don’t think they even remotely give a **** about it.
Even David isn’t smiling, and he’s a stereotypical sugar fueled & slightly retarded kid.
So you better shelf that supper happy attitude of yours for now, or you’ll come of as a insensitive prat.

Poor daisy :( its so sweet that she’s just trying to make everyone feel better, and i don’t understand why people cant just forgive mike, Lucy did in fact treat him like ****, and, honestly, i would have done the same thing. How could he have known it would lead to something like this, though? Its just an efed up situation that he tried to apologize for when he realized his feelings for Lucy, but it was simply (and sadly) too late :( he doesn’t deserve the harsh ridicule that everyone’s giving him. He realized his mistake, and thats enough for me to forgive him.
Even if he was a dick. :p
But, in all seriousness, I just hope Lucy is okay and they will all get back together like before :(

Poor Daisy, was expecting a nice party where everyone leanred that despite the huge blow that they all know can’t /really/ be filled, it’s not like they’re betraying Lucy by finding a way to still have fun. Not entirely sure if she still thinks it’s possible now.

Comment ID #253977

Why are they all so sad that Lucy is gone? Other than the occasional nice thing, she mostly treated all of them like ****. She didn’t really treat any of them like friends accept Mike and even then she was abusive.
Yes I’ve read the whole comic. Yes I know her excuse about being ignored in kindergarten. But all these characters look completely wrecked that she’s gone - I could understand worry but David looks like his worlds ended, Rachael barely knew her, and she’s punched every male in the room, kicked daisy in the face second page of the comic and gone out of her way to make none of them feel like her friends.
I don’t get why they’re all so protective and kind to her :/

One of the reasons I like this comic so much is how Taeshi improves her art on every single page - I love group shots like this, everybody is looking amazing (I have noticed some subtle variation in body and face shapes which I love) and the colours are GORGEOUS!
But yeah, awesome page Taeshi!

Oh, Daisy. If Sue looks like that, I’m glad you are trying to cheer everyone up.
Next pages theory: Jess turns around with tears in her eyes, stares at the wall for a second, and shouts out of nowhere, “I LOVED HER!!!”
Then she tries to hurt Mike. Everything turns to chaos, and Daisy starts to freak out. Paulo pulls Daisy away, they start to walk and talk about their feelings, and Paulo x Daisy becomes a thing. I would like that. 8-D

Hey Paulo, you’ve only made out with/banged three of the girls in this room. Time to step up your game.

More seriously, how long until Rachel outs Paulo spending last night with her, thus driving Mike into a rage?

Titanium Dragon July 17, 2013, 8:06 PM EST.

Comment ID #253986

I seriously don’t get why is there someone in EVERY page that needs to point that Mike doesn’t deserve the hate he’s getting. He’s not getting any hate anymore, jeez! There’s NO ONE, absolutely NO ONE dissing him in the page, what are you talking about. We get it, dude. Mike is not a terrible person, not everything is his fault, yadda yadda yadda. Everyone knows that. Enough already, that’s so annoying.

Also, to the people that doesn’t understand why they are all sad: their friend is leaving. She isn’t alright. Some of them may even know she tried to kill herself by now. People start to wonder what they could have done to make it better, or if they’re somehow to blame. Of course they’re sad. Some of them knew Lucy since kindergarten. And LIKED HER, despite her moodness. It doesn’t matter how much of a bitch you think Lucy was. They still considered her as a friend. It’s not THAT hard to understand. They need some time to get sad about it and then they can start to carry on.

I’m having a feeling that alot of **** is going to hit the fan. Everybody is there. Whats to stop Paulo from telling everybody what mike did? Also how did he find out what mike did? He punched him for it. Very shocked to see jessica and racheal in the same room as tess. Looks like jessica finnaly knows what happend and not taking it well. I still never got her love for lucy, i mean at the sleep over when they were fist fighting racheal said that jessica was probaly injoying herself when her face was between lucys legs. After that in ask rossevelt high it was showed over and over again that she has a thing. But in the regular comic it was barly show, i think i recall at the new years comic, she was looking for lucy. I pray that a bombshell hits this party, and we jessica shows how she felt abought lucy by kicking mike’s ***

Jessica must be in one hell of a depression considering her crush on Lucy.

Paulo and Rachel in the same room!! I smell a confession and subsequent argument.

Daisy is my hero. She’s doing her very best to bring up everyone’s spirits, despite recent circumstances…
No doubt Daisy’s hurting, too, but she puts her friends before herself. She’s very mature for a sophomore.

I’d bet Tess would lament to herself being a teetotaler for this particular party.

Daisy brought Sunkist (or Fanta, I guess), Coke, and Mountain Dew. Someone get me into that party!

I do hope that the gang cheers up soon. If Mike just told everyone the truth, then I’m sure they could forgive him sooner and find a way to see Lucy together. Props to you if you made it this far down the comments!

(Edit: Then again, that green bottle could be ginger ale…)

;_; <—- This should be your face, Daisy. Not :D I mean there’s nothing wrong with wanting to cheer everyone up, but I don’t believe you were very sad to begin with..

Honestly, only three characters in this page look genuinely depressed to me. Mike, Tess, and Sue. All the others seem to have their minds somewhere else. Paulo is focused on supporting Daisy at the moment. Abbey’s watching the emotions occurring around him. Rachel and Jessica haven’t been as close to the main group for vary long so I can’t imagine their to hurt. Nothing ever seems to faze David. And Daisy is trying to help, but doesn’t seem sad personally. Just some observations. I’d really like to see character development out of Mike right here, though.

@Kauphy I was thinking the same thing. Daisy is way too happy considering the current circumstances. It feels like she’s happy that Lucy is gone (not dead, but not there with them) and now she could be the number one girl in their group.

Or MAYBE that is the way she use to overcome the situation.
My bestfriend left my country without saying a word, but I didn’t cry at first. Yes, I was sad and worried, because of her culture and her situation, but I didn’t show up my emotions.
So I try to be happy, to make a smile, in order to not worry the others who were near to me, to not become depressed.
To not become like… that!
They’re like… zombies! Sad zombies!
MAYBE Daisy is doing the same thing? Trying to not become a sad zombie?

…Or yes, MAYBE you guys are right.

But before we point our finger to her, we should wait to see what she really feels.
We all should wait. Is that so difficult?

If she cries, then she is a whiny baby
If she tries to make a smile, then she’s a bad cat.

Sorry for my terrible english

I feel bad for Daisy, when everyone is depressed and sad, she toughens up and tries to make the mood a little better. Daisy is a really strong character when she chooses to be, if she wasn’t around I’m sure people would be a lot more depressed for longer period of time…. and that’s definitely not good. :unsure:

I think mike is having second thoughts. I would expect Abbey to try and support Daisy. Sue is thinking is there anything I could have done? Sometime during this study party there all going to talk about how they feel then have a good time or this party is going to epically fail at making people happy

@jex: haha, I guess that could work, too! :)

At least Daisy is trying her very best to cheer up every cat and dog in the room! There’ll be no sad party members when Daisy’s in charge, no siree!
