Now earlier it seemed like it was going for a SuexDavid ship now SuexPaulo, starting to think its not about who she may or may not have feelings for but move of a doesn’t want people to be separated and feels like she has to try and keep the group together.

So Paulo actually went and got a ticket? Just to go up and learn with his friends?
…man, I don’t get Paulo. Sometimes (usually to Mike) he’s a major jerk, sometimes he’s ridiculously loyal, sometimes he’s just lonely…I just don’t even.
And what’s bothering Sue here? Does she feel bad about having left Paulo? Is she thinking about Lucy? Is it something to do with Mike? Is she regretting eating all of her hypothetical candy and wishing she had more? THIS LACK OF KNOWING ANNOYS MY BEING. :nope:

Sneaky Paulo got sick of getting pushed around and snuck his way into the exhibit… or maybe he actually paid for a ticket like a good boy and haha XD… I could not say that with a straight face.

I wonder what Daisy will say once she sees him here. Ooh, or once she finds out that somebody paid for his ticket if that happens to be the case. Scandalous. :P

Sue you aren’t fooling anyone. We both know you are thinking about Paulo. Just say you found the new exhibit to not be as interesting as the other artwork downstairs. I guess you could try taking it a step further and say that you wanted to go downstairs only because you wanted to check up on Paulo, but I don’t know how well that would play out. Amaya might see right through you.

sue is not that into modern art as she thought. and Amaya dose indeed see through Sue’s lame acting of not knowing what she is talking about . Amaya is like quit your lying sue! stop making excuses and tell the truth! you don’t no **** about modern art. that last panel looks like Paulo is doing that head butt on purpose with the way his hand is on sue’s face.

@Hythrollic: If Sue is into girls, then she’s covered with Amaya. Just look at Sue blush in the third panel as she stares into Amaya’s eyes. It is almost like this chapter was made to make people ship Sue with everybody. Oh and Paulo is just helping that along by bumping into Sue. 8-)

“The colors are a little lifeless”, “The colors are dull”.
It’s awkward, because I bet they’re thinking of Lucy by those descriptions.
It’s not to say THAT she is lifeless and dull, but that her “colors” HAVE become lifeless and dull. Lucy is one of those tragic stories where a colorful personality gradually becomes cold and gray; what makes it even more tragic is that she still holds onto and nurses her “colors”.

Anyways, I love how Sue totally headbutts Paulo right under the jaw for a (I can’t believe I am gonna say this) CRITICAL HIT! Wow that was so bad, I was thinking about shooting myself.

Also, how did Paulo get up there? Did he finally beat the shi-crap out of that teacher/adult/whatever/A-hole that keeps pushing and strolled up, or did he just sneak in? If he actually went and bought a ticket…

please reply…

guys, tell me if I understood it properly: in the previous page, in the panel in which there are sue and mike, they are whispering to eachother. in the next panel, paulo is imagining what they are saying, and he imagines it wrong.
is this right? or was that still something they actually said?
thanks for clarification.
also, what’s the dumb idea sue talks about??

boh... October 4, 2013, 7:31 PM EST.

Comment ID #261045

I’m starting to wonder….what if she’s thinking about Lucy and is wanting to question Mike about it, but trying to think of a way that wouldn’t make everyone go against Mike. Sue is one of those that wants to keep everyone together and makes really sensible choices. And Amaya there is trying to keep Sue from worrying about Lucy. Sue looks like she’s the only on who’s down about Lucy leaving.

At least that’s what I’m getting from this chapter. I hope in the end, Sue is the one that questions Mike and gets the truth from him. I’m pretty sure no one knows what was really going on.

Gabria93 October 4, 2013, 7:32 PM EST.

Wait is Lucy okay yet? Still can’t tell if she actually jumped off a building but her bones were too hard or something. I don’t think she likes getting left out Mad Lucy.

Oh, but that doesn’t make any sense. First Lucy obviously has feelings for Mike and mike has feelings for her. She was broken up when he rejected her, but he didn’t realize what he was doing. Also when he heard she was gone, he broke down. Second, don’t think she’s out of the picture because you know she is stubborn (Plus I think she and Mike are the main characters). Third, Sandy is far away, and who knows, maybe she’s secretly dating someone. Fourth, if Lucy doesn’t take his heart, lets just say a lot of people will be unhappy. Plus Sandy can’t compete because she’s too softhearted and isn’t ready to give everything up for Mike, and Lucy is already. She would cry for 5 min. and be done, she probably wouldn’t even cry. Fifth, Lucy needs Mike, and even though he doesn’t want to admit it, he needs her too.

So I don’t see how Mike and Lucy won’t be mates. As far as I’m concerned, they already are.

Half Moon October 6, 2013, 4:49 PM EST.

Comment ID #261109

I know it’s going to happen because a lot of stories follow what I am saying, well, out of the ones I have read. Plus it won’t make sense if Lucy and Mike won’t be mates. Why the story line? Why the drama? Because in the end everything will be right and it will come down to 2 people. Lucy and Mike. (Plus that Maishul thing is annoying)

I know that feeling bro (or sis).

Seriously though, taking Lucy out is like taking the heart of this comic out. The story is kind of centered on her. If she’ll be back, and hopefully more than just friends with Mike.

Comment ID #261117

Hm.. Well, this has nothing to do with this page. :)
I really miss Lucy! I think Mike OBVIOUSLY has feelings for her but they’re just kind of stored in his heart. I think Mike is blinded by Sandy’s kind heart to see that Lucy is there and she loved him badly. Mike even thought that they should start over but he was a little too late. :( Personally, I think Mike has been a bit of a douche. :/

Poptart-chan October 6, 2013, 7:39 PM EST.

That’s what I’m trying to say. Mike and Lucy should be mates. Not the girl who screws up Mike and Lucy’s relationship, and is far away. Sandy go away. You are ruining Mike.

Comment ID #261119

Mike has been a bit of a douche.
bit of a douche.
Mike has been a complete ignorant, nasty, atrocious douche.
That seems better, what do you think? I don’t blame Sandy, but she shouldn’t have been part of the equation to start with, logically speaking. Also, it was incredibly unhealthy of him to pine after this girl from fourth grade for four years, never faltering a bit (exaggeration, I know), but my point stands. The relationship, realistically, won’t last too much longer, but I’m not sure it’s reasonable to expect reality in a comic about cats in high school.

It doesn’t actually state what happened to her or where she is going. Hopefully it’s back to her house or something. Maybe she was kidnapped by that one guy who was trying to make her a star.

seriously? not all mike x lucy lovers hate sandy. i ship mike and lucy, in fact they are my favorite ship EVER but i dont hate sandy, i actually pity her. have you noticed how, in the chapter “to the top” it seems that her mom is pressuring her too hard to model, and in response, her grades and social life are failing? yeah. this is not supposed to be a comment to be taken like “oh sandy sandy sandy i love sandy she is best kitty and lucy should go die in a hole” because that isnt true. but neither is it true that sandy sucks and should go die in a hole. also, mike is a confused teenager, not an adult man whose frontal cortex is fully developed, and therefore is still confused about girls, so hes not a douche, either. boys are confusing, especially when theyre like mike.

@Carindel Girl

Did I say I hate Sandy? All I said is that the comic would have been better without her in the way. All I want is Lucy and Mike to become mates. (they’re cats remember)

BTW we boys aren’t confusing. You just have to get to know us. We may act tough, but we’re soft. Girls are confusing. Right now, I’m a junior, and girls keep look at me. Do they like me, or do they just like to tease me? I’m very shy so I don’t want to ask them about it. I guess I’ll have to stick with getting looked at.

I literally said “I don’t blame Sandy”
That was a thing I said in the post you are referring to.
In that post, I used what I thought was common behavior and thought patterns to claim that Sandy shouldn’t be a part of the equation. Did I say that Sandy was a horrible person who just needed to die? God no. I don’t blame Sandy, I blame Mike. He led Lucy on for literally years, perhaps not intentionally, and broke her heart… multiple times. Personally, I just want Lucy to be happy.

I just realized that I’m kind of like Mike. (Maybe a little more shy)

I seriously don’t believe this whole thing is Mike’s fault. I share a similar story, so I know where I’m going from. People aren’t honest with you, and when they actually want to be with you, something comes up. Then you get stressed over the fact you should have gone with that person. Then you get angry at yourself and sometimes you let it out at someone. That’s what Mike did to Lucy. He regretted his decision and now he is tearing himself apart, ever though he might not show it. He actually wants Lucy.

If you are talking about Sandy & Mike. Yep, they will sink like the Titanic. Lucy and Mike will stay above water.

Ok, I found this webcomic four days ago, started from the very beginning, and decided not to comment until I’d caught up. I have just now caught up. I have one question.

P.S. Ok I lied, I have a second question. What have you done with my favorite character (Lucy)?

I think everyone is asking the same question.
I’d be happy to exchange theories though. My guess is she attempted suicide via overdose and was found before she could die. After calling poison control, her family realized she has an issue and sent her to rehabilitation for her depression. And don’t claim that’s not ****ing depression. That is definitely depression, and she has been given a lot of signs that people would be happier if she just died, so I, personally, wouldn’t blame Lucy. But I digress. I doubt she died, though it wouldn’t be a surprise. But let’s be honest… WASN’T SHE ALREADY DEAD ON THE INSIDE‽‽‽‽‽‽‽‽
P.S. Welcome to the message boards or whatev! I’m not sure if I’m the best person, giving I only found this a week ago and didn’t seriously start reading until Friday, but nonetheless, WELCOME TO THE PRESENT!

Thanks, I didn’t know about it. BCB just became my favorite comic and it will stay that way if Lucy comes back.

If she doesn’t, I’ll just make a story off of it where she does, but it will be only for me, so Taeshi don’t worry about copyright or anything like that. It would just be a spin off. She kind of reminds me of someone I hold dear. That’s why I like her, well part of the reason anyway.

i wounder if this is the part sue and Paulo have a brain storm as of why Lucy did it. I forgot its them too who where close too Lucy.

Sue wasn’t really close to Lucy. Paulo was a little closer, but not as close as Mike. Maybe this is the part where Paulo and Sue are actually nice to each other, or what you said (but I doubt it).

@Nixnax101 sorry, must have misunderstood ur comment, but i also said that mike is a pubescent boy who is still confused about girls and prolly didnt mean to lead lucy on- YOU KNOW WHAT i will respect ur opinion and shut up.

Actually, it’s just Mike because she considered him as her only friend. Besides, Paulo is a little bipolar. He’s all nice, but then acts like a big jerk. I hate jerks! Mad Lucy

I dabble in experimentation of Android apps and I would be honored to try and create an app for you guys no charge! I LOVE this comic and I think people should at least try.

Aaw, Sue is feeling guilty! She regrets leaving a friend behind and wants to return downstairs. That’s cute.
