Curiosity…. it’s better not to know Sue.

@Taeshi: It’s hard to draw a squished face. It’s scary, reminds me of Ronald McDonald… D:

Amaya is so cute and helpful. She picked up mikes clip bord for him. Sue is going to be freaking out this whole chapter because paulo and david have to touch every thing. I wouldn’t be surprised if sue slaps one of them before this is over.

Amaya is so adorable! Sue will go bald soon if she stresses out any more :unsure:

Interesting look between Sue and Amaya in panel 1 and reaction in 2.

@CatZZ: Sue’s totally checking David out in panel 3 :smirk:.

In all seriousness, though. The first panel says plenty about who Sue has a stronger connection with. Also, David is more focused on other things… and his love is for Flower Girl so there’s that too. I can see David having a future with Rachel if it doesn’t work out with Flower Girl and Katie could be his third option… so he doesn’t really have much reason to go out with Sue… unless he suddenly develops a love for females of the feline persuasion. Do you really see that happening anytime soon though? :smirk:

I have to say this page has some of the most interesting facial expressions. Well at least ones I wouldn’t have really thought would have been on some of the characters. I don’t know, they’re confusing me a little.

It’d be funny if the statue looks like Alegria :P I don’t know why looking at it’s back reminded me of it though.

Don´t touch anything, David. Furious Abbey
If you broke that glass, you´re trouble. :O

Mike’s stressed, Sue’s stressed, Paulo and Davind are CAUSING stress… and Amaya’s being nice. Don’t think she’s stressed out at all.
Way to be above the influence, Amaya. Hopefully you’ll be a positive example and show them how it’s done. Without any words, either. Show through action! :D
…still annoyed that Paulo got away with messing up Mike’s experience, though. :/

why you looking after david so much sue?

David is staring at a miniature version of himself.

@CatZZ: Not a chance, It’s on all our minds whether you ship it or not. :O

Alright, I’m getting a titanic foreshadow that Sue is going to snap at Paulo and David big time. Amaya might save the day .u.

Please, Paulo, PLEASE get your mind right for once! And David- well, he’ll always be David no matter what..

Not sure if Sue trying to set up Amaya and Mike, or Just likes David/Paulo. ;)

Anon-Anon September 24, 2013, 2:18 PM EST.

Comment ID #260198

So let me get this straight. Paulo tries to take Mike’s stuff against his will, accidently launching it onto a piece of art, and gets off completely free. What a douche.

i have the feeling that david is going to break that 8-D

Mike x Sandy is no more! WHHHHHHHYYYYY?!

………….. cus’ he’s apparently fallen in love with a clipboard~

Huh? September 24, 2013, 2:33 PM EST.

Comment ID #260201

Last I checked sue was ****** at mike for not picking Lucy over sandy, and also figured out what happened to Lucy sooo I really doubt she would try to set him up with another girl. Sue is just flirting with Paulo and David by screaming at them for acting like idiots

Something is going to be broken soon

eagle September 24, 2013, 2:55 PM EST.

Comment ID #260203

There is no flirting or anything going on whatsoever! But I like the thought… :smirk:

@eagle: Wasn’t touching, and losing headphones in, art enough? Even though the art isn’t real…
Unless it is bones that will break, I don’t think anything will break (except maybe glass). :/

David X Sue 4 life.

David X)
Just like a little kid, pressing his face up against the glass!

Maybe it’s just me, but with Lucy being on hiatus, the tone of the comic as of late has just come off as boring to me.

Please tell me the figurine sculpture has the same face as Alegria. XD

David. The only one to care about the art, apparently.

@starfighter far as i can tell they’re in a “modern art” exhibit, though i only think that because of the doughnut sculpture. if they are then there’s almost nothing priceless in that wing :P

wut? I hope it’s not really a suexsomeone chapter! she has mccain! why everybody forgets about mccain???

I like Mike’s dumbfounded look in the fourth panel.

At this rate, they will all fail!

Amaya, being a bro, her usefulness is not limited to the concession bar at the theater, CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT. No one noticed it… ;_;

Everyone’s sweating in panel 6, makes me wonder what their fur would be like in a sauna. Wet, at first, then kinda scruffy would be my guess.

@Taeshi: This is the first time I felt that there was too much going on in a single page. I can easily see this page made into two updates. Thats your choice, of course! :D

Hawz September 24, 2013, 8:52 PM EST.

Comment ID #260220

Amaya hasn’t talked at all, how come?

GLaDOS September 24, 2013, 9:52 PM EST.

Comment ID #260221

So, we have moved from the serious drama to less serious, but equally fulfilling, drama.

@Chrisd765: I’m super late for this, but here it goes: It’s odd how, after Amaya’s stare makes Susan remember their work, Amaya looks down as if that wasn’t the reaction she was hoping for. I could be because Amaya is naturally shy, or something more. It could mean nothing, and Taeshi’s just trying to get new ships sailing. She got 8-DX :/ sailing through this page, why not another?


Hawz September 24, 2013, 9:53 PM EST.

Comment ID #260222

@ hawz Judging by David’s intelligence… I doubt he will notice much. Isn’t he still in love with flower girl?

GLaDOS September 24, 2013, 10:00 PM EST.

Comment ID #260223

@ Taeshi I think Amayas first words should be by bumping with Mike or some one XD

Wow look at mike eyes

Art style is so clean and pretty! Especially like the angle on Sue in panel 5!

Blehblehbleh September 24, 2013, 10:44 PM EST.

Comment ID #260229

I was refering to all the 8-DX :/ commentators like CatZZ, I’m pretty sure David still stalks flower girl.

What with the final, “?”

Hawz September 24, 2013, 11:11 PM EST.

Comment ID #260245

@Hawz I agree that the SuexDavid seems to almost drip off this page and looking back, Amaya looking down is probably at the clipboard she is picking up in panel 4, but my mind went off on a tangent trying to see possible blindsides.

Your right though anything can happen and all we can do is enjoy the ride.

Chrisd765 September 25, 2013, 4:31 AM EST.

David is still that silly.

Im very sure it’s just me… but.
to me at first look, mike looks like he’s about to grope amaya’s tits.

huh……I think I may have stayed at rule34 for too long.
now I’m imagining porn about everything.

curse you Internet.

Comment ID #260348

Well, seeing as the forums no longer exist, Ima post this here: what the heck happened exactly between when Mike and Lucy made up after the play and then all of a sudden next chapter Lucy tries to kill herself? I was (and am still) so confused as to what happened. Wtf?

OneLonelyPickle September 25, 2013, 11:05 PM EST.

Comment ID #260469

@OneLonelyPickle: As has been suggested before, Lucy had already decided she was going to off herself, so she took one last opportunity to give everyone whatever they wanted before she went through with it. She figured it wasn’t going to matter either way, since she would be dead after all.

I still despise Michael, I wish he died when he fell off the bridge in Acapulco.
